    Viewed an article online about the celtic manager keeping tabs on the entire scotland squad and wanting to install a "tartan heart" in the celtic team.
    RD states he likes the winning mentallity strachan has got out of the players and wants them to be "loyal" to celtic.
    I would have no problem cherry picking the best scotland players as were on the cusp of a golden generation of talent coming through.
    Im all for it and would prefer a team of players who can transition from national to club football and preform against better oppositionn. Add this to picking up the best youth hopefully learned from losing russel robertson gauld ect.
    Thoughts ?

    I'd take wee Anya for Ronny's system. Shame we missed out on Robertson. Not fit at the moment but I' d also have a look at Snodgrass. We need wingers.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with this notion.

    Only area I hope he doesn't go Scottish is at CB - they're all pish the now (imo).

    Lets see....

    Grant Hanley's only 22. Be good back-up, better than what we have apart from VVD ( and Denayor on loan)

    Would take

    Chris Martin would be ideal for us.

    Anya like what I've seen of him.

    And would welcome Sean back.

    A tie between Forrest and Samaras
    I assume you mean 2 or 3 from that list. It would be counter productive (for the national team) to buy all the best players and have half sitting on the bench.

    We have Gordon. So no point in taking Marshall.

    Personally I'd take the players that should be playing at a higher level. Players like Hanley, Maloney, Anya, GMS and Fraser. All of those players would improve Celtic and also benefit tye Scotland team by mixing them into European competitions and gain that must-win mentality only Celtic can provide.

    But saying all that, it's a massive burden that we have to go and purchase already developed Scots. We are the dominant force in Scottish football. We really should already have the elite. That is something that I think we have made a huge misyake over since Strachan's days

    Grant Hanley has impressed me over the last year or two especially for Scotland. He is a bit raw but he's powerful and aggressive, he would add some much needed steel to the back line.

    At a push i'd take Hanley - just don't think he's much more than a clugger.

    Scotland's best CB is Charlie Mulgrew.
