Possibly Scales too, but hopefully not! I think Mc Grath would be best advised to look to a top half Championship team now, rather than Celtic, which is a club in transition.

We've a good prospect at left back in Montgomery.  Scales is a decent player but I can't help feel the €600,000 fee was Dermot helping out Rovers with his other money!

Hopefully not, I have been particularly disappointed with Afolabi as I had high hopes for him after the Toulon tournament but he appears to have fallen off a cliff, not even getting game time at Ayr. Any insights into that?

Connell has lost his place in the Irish U21 set up and O'Connor has really gone backwards judging on recent U21 performances. The lack of a proper reserve league in Scotland seems to be a big issue, but why did they take these lads on in the first instance and what was the story with Okoflex, did West Ham pay money for him?

Oko Flex left on a free, Afolabi had a decent run last season with Dundee but hasn't had a kick for the first team. We've a B team in the Lowland League now which will help but O'Connor has just had loan spells and not a kick either.  We bought him with Frimpong and he got his chance and took it.  Connell played some pre-season in 2020 and looked class, never gave him a kick after that!  A few of us have joked that we've become anti-Irish the way we've treated these lads.  It would actually depress you.
