So it’s been a wee while since I’ve posted; I don’t usually like to talk about areas outside of my narrow purview, which is about transfer business or, rather, rumoured transfer business.
This is why I’m called The Rumour Guy after all …
With a new season starting, I guessed it was time I got off my lazy ass and provided something for the site.
I’ve put together a piece for tomorrow, but when I saw the results and data for today I thought it might be worth bringing this up.
Celtic still need players in a couple of positions, as we all know, and one of those positions is on the right side of midfield.
Once again, it’s pretty clear that there’s a player in the SPFL who is more than capable of stepping into the squad and providing cover there.
Well he played today, and he scored himself a couple of goals and might even have got a hat-trick.
Martin Boyle should be on our list in this window, provided he’s not going to cost an unreasonable fee.
He’s a decent footballer, and one our manager knows the value of.
He may not be a “next level” signing but wide right Forrest badly needs competition and there is zero question that Boyle can do it in the domestic game.
He’s proved it over and over.
He’s spent some time on the side-lines in the past 12 months, but I think he’s already proved today that he’s fit and raring to go and that makes him worth taking a punt on.
When he’s fully fit, and hopefully he’s back to it, he’s a very decent footballer.
The bottom line is that he’s won three points for his team today and if Hibs were realistic about a fee I’d say go and get him Neil Lennon.
He’s one of a number of Scottish players we should be thinking about, and I’ll have more to say on that when James publishes my larger piece tomorrow.
The Rumour Guy is a Celtic fan from Glasgow. He is not Peter Lawwell.
