Kiltie is bit-part and doesn’t fit the system. I can see why he’s going. I’d be more disappointed in losing Joe as he’s a great captain but Robinson seems to favour Dunne and Gallacher. 

Kiltie still provides an excellent option and a strong member of the squad if/when we need to change shape.

If him and Reid go (as Reid out on loan is apparently likely) then we're a lot weaker in that area at close of play than we were this morning.

No idea why I’ve quoted a post from ages ago 🤒

Kiltie is allowed to leave, both Kilmarnock and st Johnstone are trying to get him on loan before the window closes tonight.

Cant believe Robinson is allowing it.

Yeah, not happy about this. He's still a pretty young player and he has a lot to offer. I guess game time is going to be limited so maybe the player is pushing for it. But I'd be trying to keep him; certainly not letting him go to a rival.

He provides an option, yes but I wouldn’t say an excellent one. He’s never held down a regular place since he signed for us and bar a couple of games, he’s done nothing of note either. I don’t think it’s as major an issue letting him go as some think.

We’ll sign a left back and then someone on loan in the next day or so - probably a link man for midfield and attack* - and that’ll be us done.

 

* Someone better or more versatile than Kiltie

We've got 5 hours. The window is today.

This evening then Robert. My apologies 

Fingers crossed! It's been really, really quiet though but you know SR is probably annoying the f**k out of the directors as we speak for another body or two.

If Kiltie isn't happy at lack of game time and is pushing for a move then there is not much the club can do. It's not like we are desperately trying to get him off the wage bill, this seems more like a player wanting to move on so if so cheers for your service but nowhere near as influential as some seem to be making out.

Given that we pushed the boat out to sign Kiltie from under the noses of the likes of Bolton, I'd imagine that he's on a fair wedge.

Robinson probably looks at him as an expensive "luxury" as he's not a first pick.

I agree with your assessment of him. From memory, I don't think I've witnessed Kiltie have an outstanding game, even when he was getting a run of games.. The odd flash here and there, but not consistent enough. Might be down to his pattern of injuries, of which there have been a few. Certainly equivalent to or longer than Tanser's, who many are wanting shot of as apparently he's injury prone.

Having said all that, letting him move to a team that will be competing directly with us for top six/relegation/play off place, would seem somewhat foolhardy.

Looks like he's likely to be Killie bound given St. Johnstone have just signed Connor McLennan

Keep him away from Killie. Probably one of the most overrated players Killie have had in recent years. The club wasn’t good enough for him when he left for Saints. Not missed.

Happy with our squad. Not fussed with any comings or goings. Robinson is getting a tune out of who we have. Main etc look like new players

Robinson has been quoted today as saying hes happy with the squad and players will only join if others leave.

I'd be happy if theres no more business in or out.

Kiltie is a bottom 6 player at best hence why I personally wouldn’t want him back and why I wasn’t, nor was anyone else, bothered in the slightest when he left the club. St Mirren fans were at the wind up at the time thinking they had taken one of our best players.

I want my club to aim higher than bottom 6 (not necessarily saying we’ll do that this season) and if St Mirren want to finally achieve the holy grail of a top 6 position they will need better players than Kiltie.

The above isn’t a dig at Kiltie really either, being a Premiership footballer definitely puts him in the top “insert number here” % of Scottish players. I would 100% swap lifes with him if I could for the chance to do what he does.
