      I think we'll be looking for at least 20 mill.

      He's a full international, he's still young for a keeper and he's got a couple of years left on his contract. If we were selling a first choice player with those credentials then we'd be looking for astronomical amounts so for a second choice player I expect 20 million plus.

      That would mean a new transfer record for Celtic.

      If they do have 70 million in the bank (I'll trust you as you know more about the Scottish game than I do) then maybe they'll be prepared to splash that amount on him.

      Wages could be a sticking point as well?

      True mate.

      But his wage demands will depend on how much he really wants to play football and how much the lure of Celtic means to him.

      TBH. I had 20mill in my heed as well.

      If the lad wants to go there, then Im sure they figure something out, loan to buy then payment plan or some such.

      Could end up a bidding war though, as he will have a few options. But being an Irish lad, Im sure celtic would be a big pull for him.

      There'll certainly be others interested in him and I think we'd entertain a bidding war as we get the full whack for FFP (I think). As far as I'm aware we're in no danger of failing any of that stuff but we have lost a few quid on players recently who've left on freebies (Bobby, Naby, Ox) so maybe a few 100% sales on our own produced players wouldn't go a miss.

      I don't think he had any chance with that mate. It was a good goal . How their tallest guy and best header of the ball ended up next to endo was beyond me. Virg should have been on him.

      I'll tell you how he got beaten by the header. It was a bullet header into the top corner....Any more questions?

      What a bizarre post to bump the thread with. Literally nothing he could do with the header, the marking was beyond shocking.

      He saved us twice at crucial moments, we should be thanking him.

      1000% mate. Said it in the match thread at the time. Him or Q have to man that f**ker up, not leave it to our 2 shortest players in Endo and Jota to mark him. FFS!

      What? There should have been a defender with the near post. What happened with a player guarding the post and the possibility of heading a goal is minimised. Nowadays the counter attack takes priority.

      2 more appearances needed for him to get a EPL winners medal. In the event everyone else gets one.

      3 league appearances this season. 3 wins. 9/9 points. Win rate 100%. Not bad for someone that nobody wants on the pitch.

      Who doesn't want him on the pitch?

      He's arguably the best no.2 keeper in the world.

      Deserves at least a few more starts before end of season.

      I guess people “don’t want him on the pitch” because that would mean that Allison is out and he is the best in the world

      at the very least, 2 more EPL games to get his medal.

      Hopefully he plays 2 of the last 3 games, when we have already sown up the League Title. Ali plays last game though!

      The last time we had a very good backup was maybe in early 2000s when we had Kirkland and Dudek in the squad together?

      Impressive reflux too. Keep it up against Luton and Chelsea. I won't rush Alisson since that next Sunday, Kelleher will play the final nonetheless.

      Even then they weren't the best keepers in the league, plus Kirkland was a walking sicknote
