he would be class at us but he isnt an out and out striker, i have watched him alot and he is more like an attacking midfielder or plays behind strikers and still gets his fair share of goals, would do brilliant up here.

I just can't see this happening, he is a decent player,and behind Hooper and Stokes, he would be great, but I can't see him coming North

I dont see us getting this guy because other teams like stoke and west brom would probs snap him up on £30,000 a week wages or something stupid

he is a better player than stokes and arguably a better allround footballer than Hooper, certainly not a better goalscorer. If he came he would take stokesy's place upfront.

He is a better version of Stokes in my opinion, he does like to play deep but he is good in the air as well. He is the sort of striker that might do well for us considering he can play behind a striker or strikers as well. I wouldn't offer to big wages and I'm not sure if he is the target man we need, depends on how good he is as a targetman, info suggests he isn't bad in that role.

will just have to wait and see , i think the centre back position has to be a priority with the exit of big dan, loovens, and o dea, wouldnt mind if ki was punted and we signed a quality centre back with european experience.

I agree with this sort of. We have to remember he was playing in a struggling wigan team most of the time and wasnt getting alot of chances created for him.

Also, although I really want us to buy a target man, a pacey striker like Rodallega wouldnt go a miss either. Dont think we possess much pace upfront in stokes or Hooper.

This is a strange rumour but this is basically what has happened, not 100% sure but quite certain.

June 6th Daily Record prints article where James McArthur says Hugo will be a good signing for Celtic.

On June 14th this news hits Colombia and take the Daily Record article seriously as a suggestion that he is about to join Celtic.

June 16th this news comes back to Scotland and people think he is close to signing with a Colombian source when the initial source is actually the Daily Record article, no extra details have been added since that initial article. People have said his Agent is pushing the deal in public but I've not actually seen any sourced statements from an Agent yet.

Donald trump these guys have made billions for themself fair enough roman might have had his inhertance handded down but still keeps the business top of the game
