Strange one. You’d think if he wasn’t in Hibs immediate plans they’d have left him at Stark’s Park for the rest of the season. 

Guessing we’d probably done the deals for Stanton and Williamson by that point. Taits a victim of signing a PCA. Possibly told by Jack Ross he’s very much in his plans come January and now the new man is in with his own ideas and budget and Tait is cast aside.

Not for us! Looking forward to Matthews chopping him on 19th Feb frankly.
As mentioned, he wasn't really fitting into our side. It's not the best to see him go to a direct rival but we lost all privileges when we sold him to Hibs and did our January business early.

Can only guess they didn't want to risk him being a 4th or 5th choice player. Could've ended up behind Matthews, Spencer, Stanton and Williamson.

In all honestly, other than the start of last season when I thought he looked a brilliant prospect, he’s not really kicked on at Stark’s Park. 

In his defence, I’m not entirely sure we’ve used him in his best position, so probably makes sense to send him somewhere new and get a fresh start and maybe Derek McInness can get a bit more out of him. 

Fair play to him!

Surprising? Not hugely, feeling fairly ambivalent about it, a little disappointed but not massively so.

 

It's be smashing if he was the only player at Rugby Park that gets a championship medal in May......unlikely though that may be.

I liked Tait, he was decent and has potential to become a very good player. I'm still of the opinion that our midfield is stronger following our January business  however the results on the park don't fully back that up.

I'll admit to being a bit disappointed he is now with a promotion rival however, very much like Dan Armstrong, he wasn't good enough to get us promoted so not convinced he's going to improve Killie a great deal.

Good luck to the lad though, I think his Hibs career is going to be a short one.

A bit of a shame to see him back down here already, and especially to a rival, but he was always going to struggle to get in to that Hibs midfield.

It feels like Killie are spending a fortune now but I guess that's what the parachute payments can do.

To be fair, Billy Bowie is bankrolling a lot of this himself. And will definitely be bankrolling the rumoured Lafferty deal.

What’s the boy Tait like?

He’s a great wee player. I was hoping we would build a team around him but it wasn’t to be. It’s galling that Hibs have loaned him back to a team we are competing against. 

In summary: f**k Hibs.

I feel your pain. We had the same when Greg Stewart went back to Birmingham City then straight out to Aberdeen.

Hibs also taking Clark on loan from Arsenal after they pulled him from Ross County in this window.

Maybe this makes up for when they loaned us Callum Booth for a season, only to forget a clause stopping him from appearing against them. In the February of that season, Booth had a stormer at Easter Road as we put them out the Scottish Cup. A fight broke out among the Hibs fans after one chucked a lighter or coin at him.

Not overly put out that Dylan is heading to Killie. He seems to have stalled in development with us for the first half of the season, so if he kicks on at Killie, he improves the eventual fee we’ll get selling on, and if he stagnates, it wastes money that could have been spent elsewhere by Killie. He really didn’t look a Premiership player the last few months, so this is the right level for him right now, and the exposure to different coaches, roles, styles and players will likely help his development.

Dylan to score a 94th minute winner on the last game o the season that takes us out the play offs 😅😅
 

Hibs, prob sent him to a Title Rival to toughen him up emotionally, especially if it’s massive last game o the season and he can’t show any sensitivity towards The team that kicked started his career.. 🍿
