Ed can keep us right on this.

There's a uefa rule whereby each team has to field three or four homegrown lads in CL and EL.

We have Broony, Forrest, Christie, Gordon, Hendry, Griffiths, Bain, Tierney, Morgan, McGregor.

Some are getting old. Then there's illness, injuries and disqualification.

If you sub a Scot off, u need to sub a scot on to be compliant.

Celtic really needs Scotland's top 12 players in our squad. We lost Armstrong.

GMS is Scotland quality easy. We should be looking at bringing him back. We need to cherry pick the best in Scotland to be compliant in Europe.

It also deprives domestic opposition of the best guys.

If someone gave me the option Scott Allen or GMS its a no brainier. And for me ditto Hayes and Kouassi. Unseen and eternally injured.

GMS and Christie work fantastically well together (2 years experience) .

{Ed007's Note - Clubs competing in UEFA competitions have no obligation to put a specified number of home grown players on the field of play or in the match day squad.}

GHB are you related to GMS by any chance?

Cheers Ed, well that’s most of that post blasted to pieces on a misunderstanding. Were the rules changed? Was it a previous requirement?

The issue of cherry picking the best in the domestic game still stands. It deprives opposition, they’re usually cheap, they know our game and weather/ no settling in.

Ref GMS, players do go away and become even better.

{Ed007's Note - Since season 2008/09 you need a minimum of eight homegrown players in the 25-man squad but the only time I can remember a rule like that was the three-foreigner rule that was scrapped in the 90s.
As for GMS, there was never any question about his ability but he couldn't handle being at a Club the size of ours, the expectation weighed him down.}

Gms us an Aberdeen player he sh$t himself in a Celtic top.

I’m his wee sister.

Last post on the GMS issue:

Yesterday was a showpiece cup semi final for players. There was a full spectrum marked difference in two performances.

GMS was awesome superb and Kouassi was pants.

I know who should be drawing a Celtic wage from the two.

{Ed007's Note - The thought of GMS as a CDM gives me the fear.}

That’s unfair! I wasn’t comparing positions but performances.

And again, perhaps he has matured and could now fill a Celtic jersey with confidence. People change.

Mclean would never have got as good a grip on GMS as he did Kouassi to be fair lol.

GMS was incapable of making the step-up to the standards and demands of our unique club and like when he was at Dundee Utd, he has found a confidence and consistency at their level.
Unfortunately it looks like Johnny Hayes is another one who flattered to deceive at our main rival and may also find himself finding his form and future elsewhere.
It was proven in the summer that we need to add better quality than we have in certain areas to compete at CL/ EL level and in my opinion GMS (as good as he may have been yesterday) is not true Celtic class.

29 Oct 2018 13:49:34
I’d rather have his wee sister playing for us 😆.

29 Oct 2018 13:59:11
Why not buy someday better than gms and progress.

GMS is not and never has been good enough for Celtic.
Should never have been signed first time round.
Was pish while here
Aberdeen is his level.

GMS was outstanding yesterday. It’s amazing what a bit of regular swimming can do for someone’s game.

Johnny Hayes has not had much of a chance.
