Souttar...............off soon.....?


Recommended Posts

I would be disappointed if we didn’t offer Souter a strong contract of 7 or 8k a week. If we are serious about challenging in the top 3 then we should have some players on bigger contracts….especially if they are performing like Souter does. I get it’s risky with him due to injuries but we should be doing it with all our best players that have resale value. Maybe we are for all I know lol.

Lets face it one of Robbie's predecessors handed out several deals like this to far worse players than Souttar.

Very true.

 

I just think with the FOH money and good st sales we defo can afford a few ‘senior’ players to be earning higher end salaries. I don’t want us to go bust but a few players would be fine.

Can't really disagree with that.

If I was Soapy, I'd only be signing if the fanbase learnt to spell my name.

Do they know what your name is? 🤔

Who are we playing at the weekend?  Expect this urine to ramp up over the next few days.

Honestly as a Rangers supporter I laughed at this post, but you have been spot on as I see the Daily Record doing an interview with Alex McLeish saying  that the lad would jump at the chance to sign for Rangers 😁

Sry to have taken the thread a bit off topic…but a massive thank you to you…she (43) suffered a stroke in Jan, then found out about the Cancer in March.
 

As the Doctors realised it was early on she was straight into chemo/radiotherapy…it’s been a effing horrible 8/9 months, especially as I stayed working, looked after house and four kids….but honestly to see her now you wouldn’t even know she had been through both this at all.

 

Added to the fact the JT’s are back to where we should be just explains why I’m constantly happy at the moment!

Post of the Year IMHO.

Am sure you should not put on here who is training who isn't, it's not difficult when you see bibs, what team is, but never have nor ever will put that info on here.

Has it ever actually put a professional footballer off his game? Do they even read newspapers these days?

Walker was dropped under Cathro after speculation of joining the huns.

However, he suggested the defender would want to move up a level to play for Rangers.

McLeish told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “He’s had a few injuries. Is he at the level of the current Rangers guys?

“At the moment he’s probably just behind them but you would say he’s rebuilding his career again after a threatening injury.

 

Some encouraging words for John from Alex McCleish.

So that's one. And was it confirmed by Jamie himself that he wasn't in the right frame of mind?

You better have a word with the club about putting pictures up of players training on Twitter and Instagram 🤣🤣

It was confirmed by Cathro.  it's one publicly known about. 

 

Didn't Webster get dropped for ages too?

Apparently it happens every time we play the Old Firm. So two examples (without quotes from the players saying it affected them) out of hundreds of games is hardly conclusive proof.

It's not.  But it's happened before on a regular basis.   Lafferty to the huns another example.

My reply was actually to the rangers poster Largo (above) who didn’t believe this sort of thing happened.

I don't know if we could afford to spend 3.5% of our turnover on one (injury prone) player's contract. A big risk.

It's tinfoil hat stuff. Some wee journalist sitting there thinking "how can I put John Souttar off his game this weekend"? 🤔 "I know, I'll ask the editor if I can put a story in about him joining Rangers" 

 

Do you honestly think that happens?

I don't.  What i do know is supporters of rangers will have the game against us in their head (players, tactics, results etc) what better way to get clicks or sales is to link one of our best players to their club?

I’ll answer both your questions:

 

1.  No, it will not put him off (as alluded to by other posters).

 

2.  Yes that happens…….see Daily record

If any EEN journos are about, getting a wee tongue in cheek article quoting Levein or Robbo talking about how Morelos or Patterson should be eying a move to table topping Hearts that would be great :P

Have you been living in a cave? The OF's MO when it comes to signing up other Scottish team's best players is typically:

 

Unsettle player with placed press stories (ie tapping up via the papers) along with probably other ways of tapping up (through Rangers players on international get togethers for example)

Make a derisory bid (sometimes they don't even bother offering money to a club)

Sit back and wait for the player to agitate for a move or the player's agent to start demanding more money from their current club etc

So he's saying that Souttar would leave Hearts for Rangers knowing he would a bench warmer, because he's not as good as any of the Rangers' central defenders? 

Not a very encouraging move for John to further his career.

If John signed a wee extension with us, with a release clause, and proved himself reliably fit next season, he could do a whole lot better than Rangers. 

I don't think that there would be any Hearts fan who wouldn't wish him all the best when he did move on, if he stayed a wee while longer.
