So... I'll start this thread by stating.

£1 million for Shaun Maloney :lol: Fantastic piece of business by Strachan.

What it does is guarantee Chris Beattie and Derek Riordan more game time... Celts won't miss Maloney one bit. We've more than cover there.

Can I also place my vote for SPL player of the year?

Lee Naylor. Can't believe that any EPL club hadn't picked him up. The guy is class.

I agree. Noggin The Nog are through the the Cup Final due to Rangers' untimely demise at the hands of Dunfermline ;)

And Celtic have bigger fish to fry, hence their exit ;)

Why is it?

I appreciate Celtic are well covered out there but Maloney was not the SPL Player of the Year for nothing. He was sensational last season.

I'd have liked him at City but even 11.30pm on the 31st January was too early for us to make a move. :roll:

You ask why?

Its clear as day that Strachan prefers to play Zurawski and Van Hesselink up front with Kenny Miller on the bench. On that basis, Strachan has him as 3rd choice (perhaps 4th) at best.

Beattie and Riordan are pretty promising talents.

According to the Daily Record, his agent was asking for silly terms. Unless Maloney was to become the first choice striker and lead the line, its pretty doubtful whether his retainment could be justified.

I seriously am asking myself why he's gone to Aston Villa.

Carew (Norwegian and a walking sick note if I ever saw one) is rumoured to be on 50k a week. Ashley Young cost £10 million and isn't likely to be sitting in the stands for that kind of fee. Then you have Angel. Maloney again, is likely to be 3rd choice at best. I have yet to include Sutton (who is an ideal O'Neill player-in the short term granted) and the young lad (his name escapes me who is currently leading the line).

Van Hesselink


Or even Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink :wink:

He's scored some valuable goals for Celtic thus far, none more so than the last minute winner against Inverness Caley Thistle on Sunday. Only snag was he picked up a second yellow card for celebrating with the Celtic fans. I know rules are rules but he'd just scored a goal for goodness sake. Bloody rule makers don't understand the game.

It's a lot more open (and interesting) than the Premiership to be fair.

Rangers will be back, Smith just needs time, some promising players in Burke, Murray, Hutton and have a good keeper in McGregor, the tide will turn again.

Good old Walter. 4-4-2 and the long ball with Barry Ferguson playing it square to the full-backs.

Are they going to get found out in Europe for many a year :lol: :lol: :lol:
