Again, like any other post I put on this page, I'm not exactly sure how much truth there is in it but I'm hearing discussions with Josh doig of hibs will soon be happening.

We were always going to be linked with him which is understandable and although a new right back and another centre half is more of a priority, I can't help but feel this is an opportunity we should slip through our fingers like Andy Robertson and john mcginn.

I'm not saying the boy is the next kieran tierney I wouldn't want to hype players up but from what I watched last season he's got absolutely everything to be a success and develop at us.
Greg Taylor for me isn't cutting it and I do think doig even at 19 is already a better player.

I seen a good point made in one report, hibs want 5m for him which would be a scottish record fee between 2 clubs, if that was tierney at hibs when he was 19 would you pay the 5m for him.

Exactly the tyoe of player we need and one in four years or so we sell on for four times thst. We need to stop buying players who come to us and go for nothing because they were never good enough in the first place. £5m would be a lot, but we wasred £10m on Ajeti and Barkas. This is an investment that improves our team and returns our outlay then some when he moves on.

If £5 million is the fee for doig we should pay it no question. As said above we’ve wasted £5 million on barkas, £5 million on ajeti, we’ve also squandered money on the likes of bayo, shved, bolingoli etc etc, the lists endless. This boy clearly has the talent and if he continues to improve we can only improve on that initial £5 million outlay.

When the English come sniffing then you know the lad has something, we messed about when Mccarthy was young and he went to England bit like mcginn have we not learned anything, lb is an area we need cover as hopefully boli is away.

Have the English come sniffing. 5 million down there is peanuts if he was that good he would be away. Is he 5 million pound better than Taylor? Only seen him a couple of times and he didn't impress his cup final performance wasn't even average.
Got told his agent was moaning the price was to high and no one was biting at that price.

First couple of times I watched Doig I thought this lad is the replacement for Tierney we have been looking for. Sadly I think this lad will go down south Celtic will not pay 5 million for him but they could easily ask for 15m+ in 2-3 years he's a good player me personally If I was in charge of recruitment I would cut a check like yesterday for this lad.

Think Norwich and Burnley like him, he was left put on Sunday for that very reason and Jack says he's more or less leaving, the whole hibs team were rotten in final, don't think the boy is being judged on that one ggameits on a good season.

Auf, is he better than Taylor you ask? I’d say he shows more promise than Taylor. Let’s be honest and I know Taylor gets it stinking at times, but for one is Taylor a Celtic no1 choice LB? Not for me, and if folk disagree that’s fine, if nothing else doig would push Taylor…… Taylor has no competition at LB. bolingoli is rotten and after last years antics should never be near a Celtic top again.

I asked if he's 5 million puund worth better than Taylor. Taylor isn't the long term solution but if Celtic is paying 5million your hoping he's head and shoulders above what he's replacing.
Agree can't judge the boy on cup final performance. I've not seen a lot of him. So will bow to the boys who have watched him.

Being from just outside Edinburgh I've got a lot off Hibs mates and they all rave about him, I can't personally comment myself as I've hardly seen the lad play but he's getting good reviews and getting linked to clubs so must be something about him.

Be great to get the young guy in. He has pace and is developing every year. Remember this is the lad that frimpong gave a nightmare to in the friendly last year and was taken off at half time. Then the young lad goes on to win the young player of the year. Not that serious strong mental and great work mentality to clearly developing his weakness. The lad is only going to get better and better. Hopefully celtic get him in.

Celtic need to get a first choice left back in soon, if we want to compete for the title.
Taylor is a good defender and is decent backup but we need more in attack from our fullbacks.
Since mid December ( before winning Quadruple Treble ) Taylor has played 20 games for Celtic and has only ONE assist, it’s nowhere near good enough.
Celtic have scored 40 goals in these matches and ONE assist is a brutal return.

Josh Doing is head and shoulders above Taylor and Bolongoli. As for Tierney at 19, yes he was worth 7 million at least from what I recall. Doing is developing at a good rate as he had a good few mistakes in him at first but is smoothng out into a very decent LB.

Come on BIG ANGE. Get him in.

Have got a terrific idea, why don't we let an English buy him just now, then next season we can try and buy him for five times as much, just like we were doing with Hickey, supposedly.

Couldn't agree more on the comments, I think when you weigh everything up especially based on last season when he played consistently, a 5m outlay is worth the risk. He's not the finished article by any means, I firmly believe he's got another good season of proper development to improve even more aspects of his game, but if he was in our squad I think he would develop rapidly.

We really can't afford good scottish talent to slip through our fingers, peter lawwell wouldn't pay the extra 500k for mcginn until it was too late and he went to villa for an absolute bargain, same with Robertson to hull at the time, I think the bigger English clubs only really take notice when these players are doing it down south at the more so average clubs before they make a move unless of course it's someone like tierney who did it with us.

Bottom line is, will doig improve us going forward in the long run and is he better than what we have? I think we all know the answer to that one.
The good thing is we can possibly offer hibs a player plus cash deal if they're open to it to reduce the 5m fee being mentioned.

Get Kevin Nisbet signed as well, offer them Griff, Henderson and Hazard as makeweights plus £6m for both of them 🍀.
