Och! just another bit o'f bluster from wee ginger. This will only serve to distract for a few weeks of more poor results with Strachan saying "The laddies need time tae settle" and they'll find out actually how useless Scottish rejects are....
Celtic have been aching to play in England for years - maybe this is their back door route!
It's not a bad bit of business. 1 play out who never wanted to play and another who had potential but was never fit and probably was on quite a bit of money.
One striker who comes in who does not score - so he will fit in perfectly - I bet he is cheaper then Bent has been and will work harder cos he can get to the WC
A CM - who has bite and work rate - which is ideal plus he has a great free kick
Flood - who I thought was ok as a youngster at MC - on a 18 month deal - nice extra body where we are short in midfield.
Still missing - 2 proven goal scorers (3 if we are greedy) - Some one to help Wheater at the back and lead the line - replacement for Johnson when he leaves!
S St L should have freed up 3.5m as that deal fell through. Southgate wanted to spend 4m on Hulse so could that mean a kitty of 7.5m to spend???
