    How does he qualify? Irish mam?

    Looks like we could have a fight on our hands to keep him: https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/spo...nia-president/

    I did wonder if he was related to Rudi when I saw the name.

    According to Wikipedia, Rudi is married to an Anne Frances from Wishaw, Lanarkshire in Scotland and Rocco was born in Scotland, so I'm assuming his mother must have at least one Irish parent.

    Some interesting words from Rudi Vata on his son's appearance for us. Whatever about the work being done in England, there's someone doing over-time for the FAI in Glasgow, having recently got Okoflex back in the mix. Vata's situation sounds like McGeady and McCarthy, in that we were first in and have treated the lad well. He does seem like a flight risk in the future though with Albania and Scotland being strong options given his background.

    Duffer maybe? I'd say he was heavily involved in Celtic bringing Connell, O'Connor and Afolabi in.

    I don't think I can stress this enough - he's 15.
    If he plays for us, well and good. If not, then I wish him nothing but success wherever he does play.

    I'm sensing a tone here. What is your issue? It's an interesting story and an interesting story is worth a discussion. I don't think anybody is placing pressure on him.

    The zefi lad who is very talented and scored this week twice also has Albanian parents https://twitter.com/i/status/1197069568235253760

    no issue at the moment, just thought it needed to be mentioned. I'd be interested in the discussion myself, and in a broader sense the work being done by the FAI to identify eligible players

    Mikey Johnston on for a goal today. Unlikely as it is, I would love if the FAI pressed this one.

    Very good goal today and excellent against Rennes Thursday night when he came on. Was fortunate enough to be right behind his goal the movement 1-2 and finish were of the highest caliber and the young man is a serious prospect. Not sure if any realistic chance of him ever playing for Ireland unfortunately and will probably make his Scotland debut sooner than later.
