So that's us signing Craig Gordon, Jason Cummings, Osman Sow, Alim Ozturk, Kevin Nisbet, Zeefuik, Shankland any body else i have missed i'm assuming our benefactors are coming up with the readies.

 

:munny:

 

Given the SFA are about to "throw the book at us" and the other clubs are wanting to expel us totally for "destroying the game", we're just going to become a sort of Harlem Globetrotters, playing glamour friendlies around the world until there are only eleven teams left in Scotland, when we'll be welcomed back. It's all good.

Something has happened that has made us go for for a manager and a player in the last 24 hours. Next few days will be interesting i suspect.

We were manageress and never had a decent goalie on the books. Makes sense to me. Suspect the DoF will be announced soon.

He's 37.  He is extremely unlikely to get a better offer than ours if he does indeed get an offer from us.

 

If you have a contrary opinion, that's fine with me.


He could still play at a higher level and if it’s not financial then that’s a better offer.  I suspect neither got to do with money though so we win out the deal 👍

 

No bother either 👍

‘Almost certain’? I’d say it’s a long way from certain that we will be playing in the Championship next season. It’s possible, sure, but almost certain? Nah.


Just have to wait and see I suppose.

:) I thought of the same thing a few days ago. Glamour friendlies against Bayern, Barcelona, AC Milan and the like.

He should have saved Lafferty's goal in the four nil humping glad he didn't obviously and it was good of him to bring Callaghan down as well.

I hope that this speculation of us potentially signing a highly rated, current Scottish international player plus appointing a high profile manager has the SPFL and several clubs absolutely squirming.

 

They want us down and/or out.  Sorry, not happening.

Ive been calling for him to be dropped from Scotland since about 2017 and the horror show v England.

 

He was also pish in that 4-0 game v Celtic. 

 

Still. Might be better than what we ve got.

I'd take Cherie over Perreira, Zlamal or Doyle.

So he has signed then?  From that link which I am too scared to click.  Can someone post a small quote to the relevant part that says he's signed/.  I am not getting any news anywhere else.

Just says an offer has been put to him but by the soundings on social media it's a 2 year deal with option of another

Would welcome him back with open arms! Much better than anything we have even at 37 and would be great in guiding harry stone for a couple of years until he breaks through as number 1 if he is as good as many people says he is!

Sounds like its a good offer for him at this stage of his career, possible 2 years with an extra 12 months.

 

Can see him eventually replacing PG as goalkeeper coach.

We have paid the price for scrimping on a goalkeeper.

Can't wait for tomorrow - a Vlad-style signing frenzy with 11 new players! 

 

Seriously though, I think Gordon would certainly solve a problem position for us.

Had Celtic allowed him to leave when he wanted to in January we'd not have been in 12th when the season was called (IMO). 

 

 

A good solid signing that will benefit Harry Stone's development tenfold.

Really hope this doesn't go the same way as Berra. 

 

If we can move on Zlamal and Doyle might as well bring back Jamie Macdonald to compete for the jersey.

With Berra coming back that means Pressley is the only one missing from our 2006 back four!

That’s where I am. Should have came back when he went to the mhanks instead. Hope he’s still got something in the tank/joints.

I would be delighted with Gordon re-signing. Solid keeper for another year or two.

He's not the keeper that left us. But a hell of a lot better than what we have and that's all you can ask for. 

 

Welcome back Craig, if you sign.

Jamie Mac is one of the best shot stoppers we've had in many a year. Very under-rated keeper IMO and shouldn't have been released when he was even though Alexander did well.

Can someone posts what it says, don't want to give that rag a click.

 

SunSport can reveal the 37-year old keeper has rejected a move to St Mirren.

Now it’s between the two Scottish clubs Gordon has played for as the ex-Scotland No 1 weighs up his future.

Celtic want to re-sign the hugely-experienced goalie as back-up to Fraser Forster.

But the deal on the table from the Premiership champions is on vastly reduced terms — and Gordon is unimpressed with the way negotiations have gone until now.

He told SunSport a fortnight ago how Celts needed to improve their first offer if they were truly serious about signing him again.

But there has been no new proposal for Gordon to consider.

And it’s understood Celts have even urged the one-time £9million man to delay his decision until they know where they stand with Forster.

As we first revealed, Saints boss Jim Goodwin hoped to pounce on the situation and pull off a major coup by snapping up the Scotland star.

But despite being hugely impressed with Goodwin’s pitch to him, Gordon has decided against a move to the Paisley outfit.

Hearts have been alerted to the situation and have made their move to snap up their former hero.

They feared they would be unable to lure Gordon to the club if they were condemned to the Championship.

But Gordon has made it clear he’d be open to the move regardless of which division they’re playing in next season.

He also played with Robbie Neilson during his first spell at the club as a youngster and would be happy to work with his ex-team-mate now that he's set to be confirmed as Daniel Stendel’s replacement.

Negotiations are centred around an initial two-year deal, with the possibility of a 12-month extension.

Hearts owner Ann Budge is prepared to discuss the possibility of a testimonial benefit match.

Gordon also has an eye on the next stage of his career and is planning to start his coaching badges.

The Gorgie club are happy to support him in that effort.

As yet nothing has been agreed but further talks are expected to take place this week — with Gordon biding his time before making any final decision.
