    When you see the quality of English academies and the quality of player you will play with moving to Celtic at this age always seems strange other than maybe easier progression to first team I suppose. This lad likely had his pick of clubs so Celtic obviously still big draw

    I wouldn't recommend any up and coming Irish youth player signing for Celtic. The standard is terrible here in Scotland and it's shown in the absence of decent young players coming through. The facilities are fine but the coaching and standard of opposition player in the youth league is miles below England. Scotland is fine for a developed player who isn't good enough for the English Championship (someone like Daryl Horgan) but that's about it.

    Yes, the standard in general is low, but Celtic have also produced the likes of Kieran Tierney and Callum McGregor in recent years, as well as developing the careers of Van Dijk and Wanyama, so you could argue that playing for their first team will get you noticed by Premier League clubs.

    Forrest, Robertson... hmm, struggling a bit now alright.

    This got me wondering whatever became of Ryan Gauld, the Scottish Messi who joined Sporting Lisbon from Dundee United. He's 23 now and on loan at Hibs.

    Easy to look good in the SPL, he would do well to even make it for an average championship team. He can run and thatís about it.

    He might need to be careful on how he speaks to Kate veale and female athletes his description of it in that article iwould be concerning. The Mary cain story should be a lesson for him. That I'm been harsh for there own good nonsense is prehistoric
