What an expensive failure he's been. This century's Calum Campbell. Only worse.

Precisely why 2 year deals should be only in exceptional circumstances at this level.

We've signed some guy from Rangers who is a left-back but will be our #7

I'm getting upset just thinking about it. Not really sure we needed a left-back either, but here we are. Another body I guess.

Will that be a development loan? They don't count towards 'normal' loans so we've still got 4 available? That right?

He might be able to play as a winger too, only a guess with the number 7 shirt

I suspect it will be. I've got a wee sheet with loan rules saved somewhere, so I'll have a dig about for it.

Edit: All loans are now classified as development loans (as of last year). There is no age limit, but you can only have a maximum of 4 loans (excluding international loans, because no such thing technically exists, or at least did) at the one time.

SD will be along in a minute if I've got that wrong though!

Apparently he was a striker who was converted to a left-back. So I guess he's going to be pretty comfortable going forward, knowing Duffy he'll probably try him in a few positions. We desperately need a bit of width, so assuming he's strong going forward (and left footed) then I can understand why we went for him.

Also gets in my good books for thoroughly annoying this not at all bigoted individual:

Anyone else follow the lad on social media? I know it shouldn’t matter in this day and age but the stuff he has been putting on his accounts about how proud he is to play for ROI and putting clovers on his messages kind of turns my stomach.

We only had one left back, so I'm okay with us bringing cover in for there after last years Dyer circumtances.

All loans are development loans these days, this counts as 1 of our loans.

Was hoping for McKee but no joy. Hopefully he’s decent. We’ve certainly got a much more balanced squad position wise compared to last season but I’m still a little concerned about the quality up top. Good finish from Tierney the other day mind you.

Brian McLean has signed for Morton too, which (I think) just leaves Grant Adam and Boris Melingui (assuming we don't offer him anything) as the only two members of last season's squad still get themselves sorted for the new season.

#StevieAitkenTacticalGenius still holding out for his big gig too.

I see Michael Paton has secured himself a one year deal with Queen of the South...

 

happy excuse me GIF

I'm sure we'll give him the welcome he deserves on his return to the Rock on Saturday.

That might be the most mystifying transfer of all time. Paton was overwhelmingly disappointing and was an utter shite bag. At least Dyer tried to tackle sometimes.

What's funny is there's a guy on twitter claiming Paton was shite for us because he was surrounded by shite. If someone could send him a gif of that open fucking goal he managed to miss that'd be great.

Paton was actually part of the shite that surrounded our competent players.

I remember he looked decent on one or two pre-season games, but offered nothing during the season proper.

Is Loy just crocked full stop and that’s It or is there any chance of him coming back?

Needs/has had an operation with a recovery time ranging from 6 weeks to 6 months (the words of Duffy). I really don't think we'll see him again.
