Well done on another cracking podcast last night guys! In terms of the Lewis Ferguson question, I think there's nobody better to take him under their wing than Scott Brown so do you think there could be a possibility of buying him and loaning him back to Aberdeen next season?

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Kev. It's a no from me, if we sign Ferguson get him in our squad.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Fair enough Ed. Can definitely see the benefits of that if we get a manager who can develop him properly. Either way I'd be all for getting him in.

{Ed007's Note - Me too, Kev.}

And on the subject of family allegiances; I've worked with Scott Brown's old man and he didn't come across as overly fond of Celtic lol so for me it doesn't make a difference.

{Ed007's Note - That won't be an issue for the Ferguson family, Kev.

Personally i don’t think he’s that good, the majority of the time I’ve seen him, he’s either getting booked or sent off . I can’t see how it would improve the team going forward, the same goes for Alan Campbell . To improve we surely have to be looking at a better calibre of player than these two . I’ve seen quite a few people putting forward Campbell, so basically to we look to Motherwell to get our centre midfield pairing . We will be fighting to win back our title this season, we need to make a statement with our signings to show we mean business . The Sevconians will definitely sign more players now they are champions, and we will need to show our mettle to try and get it back . 20 odd points is quite a deficit to make up when we are losing 50-60% of the first team.

I am in agreement with you Quinn, really do not rate him as a footballer.

He is good at putting the boot in but that is not what Celtic need when you see how our team get refereed.

I will ask my questions again as they are valid when we are talking about Ferguson.

1. How much do you think he would cost us if they wanted 5 million for that donkey McKenna?

2. Whose position would he take? McGregor? Turnbull? Soro?

28 Mar 2021 14:29:16
Surely if we have learnt nothing from this season it is we need strength in position all over the team. U said who's position would he take but what happens if any of those u mention get a serious injury like forest did this season. So are we to go into the new season with just mcgregor, soro and turnbull? Ferguson for me would be a great addition to the squad and provide great competition in the midfield.

28 Mar 2021 14:41:07
Being honest he's never really stood out for me likes a wee kick. ad beooking fir better and this has nothing to do with the kids family, couldn't care less I just don't think he's what we need young turnbull is far superior. slightly different position but no for me.

28 Mar 2021 14:58:59
@Ter - I agree that we need strength in depth but we actually have loads of depth in that position.

N'tcham, Rogic, Henderson, Bitton, Robertson, Shaw and Connell.

The reason I asked two questions was to highlight that unless you thought he was going to be in the starting XI, then we would be paying a lot of money for someone to warm our bench.

Personally, if we are going to be spending big money bringing in a midfielder I would want them to be better than what we have and going straight in to the first team. However, this is not an area I would be tackling in the summer as we have plenty of cover and strength here and other positions, more in need of attention.

This summer is going to be a massive rebuild for us with people leaving and contracts ending. Therefore, I think it is important we focus on the areas that need it like GK, LB, RB, CB, Wingers and strikers.

We are going to be bringing in at least 8 players in summer if we want to address the deficiencies in our team and add cover.

p. s. I reckon Aberdeen would want somewhere in the region of 3 million or upwards for him. I personally do not think he is good enough to warrant that kind of fee.

28 Mar 2021 14:45:05
I agree with you Ter. We need a strong squad to compete on all fronts and help when we lose players to injury or suspension. I think he'd be a good addition and he's got a strong mentality. He's a bit rash and hot-headed but so was Brown when we signed him (and for about 10 years after) . I haven't seen any of Campbell so can't really comment on him.

28 Mar 2021 17:45:42
LAW, of the seven players you've named;-
* 3 will hopefully be away in the Summer - Rogic, Bitton and Ntcham
* 3 are untested youngsters who are not showing any signs of getting anywhere near a start in the first team
* 1 is still to join us.

We need a squad of players whether that's Ferguson, Campbell or others as there will be plenty existing stage right.

28 Mar 2021 18:04:09
You may be right Pedro and if that happens then, yes we will need to bring someone in.

However, my point still stands, does Ferguson make the first XI before Turnbull, McGregor or Soro? If not do you want to blow a lot of money on someone who is going to be on the bench or would you prefer to spend the money elsewhere?

28 Mar 2021 19:44:15
For me LAW he could go straight into the team. Of the guys u named above apart from Shaw who is unseen l think he is every bit as good or better in most cases.

28 Mar 2021 22:29:54
You think he is better than McGregor, Turnbull and Soro?
