    Each to their own mate but Rogic, Mcgregor, Christie and Turnbull are in great form so he’d be waiting for his turn imo

    Don't really understand that as he (from the reports I've read) seems to have been really good for them. When I heard they were looking at Christie as a replacement I assumed he was being sold.

    Not sure he would be looking to come back to Scottish football anyway.

    Was instrumental in the Invincible Treble.

    Can't see him coming back to Scotland however.

    He'll easily get another EPL team.

    Think he would fit in really well to the side. Actually think Celtic made him less attacking as a player over the time he was here. He was on fire in that Inter Milan match.

    Never seemed to gel with the fans. Not sure why.

    He won't be coming back here, he could easily get a move to another EPL team.

    Mental if they’re letting him go. He was a big player for them last season. In the team every game I’m sure.

    I’d have him back in a heartbeat but there’s no chance of it.

    As said if there is even the slightest chance he would be interested in returning here we should give it a go.

    We couldn't pay his wages, or at least we wouldn't pay the wages other EPL teams would offer

    I'd love him but. He wouldn't want to come here and we can't afford his wages.

    That’s not even remotely true. He signed a new deal in 2017 rather than running his deal down and leaving for free, which banked us £7m+ in the process.

    I’d take him back in a heartbeat. He’d absolutely thrive in Ange’s system.

    That was after prolonged discussions and his agent acting up. We would have got more money if he’d signed a two year deal. £7m was cheap for his ability.

    He did sign a two year deal. If he had “suited himself and run down his deal” as you said, he wouldn’t have signed a new deal and he’d have left for nothing.

    Aye 100% it was two years. I remember it being one year but there you go. He did * us around for a fair bit and left with less respect from the fans.

    Probably because in the interview he did when him and GMS signed he stood there and point blank said he signed for us as playing for us he would have a better chance of playing in England.
    He will never come back here unless we are the only choice between us and the jobcentre.

    Would have him back in a second. Perfect replacement if we sold Christie.

    Seems the type that isn't particularly interested in football but just happens to be good at it
