    How would you even possibly know that, are you an expert on 2nd division Ecuadorian football?

    You're just opening your mouth and letting your belly rumble.

    To be fair, I can see where he’s coming from. It won’t be easy for Quintero if he joins us, coming straight from South America to Scotland: language, climate, culture etc. Not saying he wouldn’t adapt, but there are obvious challenges.

    I get all that but that's not what he's implying. He's implying that he isn't good enough to get a game for us when in actual fact, id be willing to bet every penny I have, that like the rest of us, he hasn't seen the guy kick a ball apart from the obviously quick squint on a YouTube highlights video.

    Izaguirre came from Central America and won player of the year in his first season. It’s no different to buying a foreign player from anywhere with a different language. Quintero has already said the weather where he’s from is similar to Scotland

    That's fair enough but to say he won't get game time is ignorant. Like any other player in the squad (including starting XI's) he would have to come in and earn his place in the team.

    The fact he’s playing in the second division doesn’t mean much, he’s 20 and obviously impressed in the World Cup in Poland just gone. It’s not like we’re gonna throw millions at this team for him
    And expect him to be our best player immediately

    I thought he'd be a good signing, looks strong and exactly the sort of player we need and would be cheap, the sort of player that does good leg work and breaks play up freeing McGregor and other midfielders, with him being young as well we could get a good few years out of him.

    Now he's allegedly not joining I dont think he's that good would prefer better, Ecuadorian 2nd Div is a poor standard and it would take him ages to adjust to Scottish weather, would like to see us spend a bit more on the position rather than buy cheap, he's hardly proven and just wouldnt get a game here.

    If we do sign him I think he will be a big success here

    BBC guy that interviewed lennon tried to say that someone at celtic passed him the info about quintero.... Which could easily be a whopper to save face seeing as the reports suggested the player name dropped celtic as if he was in talks and that were everyone else got the info before the game kicked off yesterday

    Holy *! That read a bit like a schizophrenic arguing with the mirror... so, in short, not at all unlike most of the transfer posts all close season long, just shorter... :56:
