Won't cough up.

They are spending and if they are serious about Nisbet then Ron will make sure it’s the valuation we want and the extras too, the days of them paying in glass cheques or provident cheques are over

Which is how I know they won't cough up.
They treat Scottish players the same way English clubs do.
Expect it cheap.

They think everyone falls over to be given the chance to play for them.
They'll come in cheap.

If they do we all know Ron won’t bow down to them, they either pay it or fuck off

The only thing celtic can offer us is a loan for Leigh.
Hes a free agent again after the summer and he's not taking a pay cut in the short term. If he comes and has a storming season here, don't you think he'll follow the money in a year's time when he's free?

Apparently he’s on a pay per game deal at Celtic and there’s pretty much zero chance he’s playing for them again when half the Celtic crowd are booing him after his social media “activities”.
It’s a no for me anyway but realistically he’ll have to leave Scotland to play now.

I think he’ll get ripped when he plays everywhere in the UK. Probs go overseas, USA mibbe.

Hopefully no

Be gutted to lose Nisbet. I'd love to see LG back at Hibs. He's still got a lot to offer.

However, I don't think he's at all a tradeable asset for Celtc. So the deal for Nisbet would need to be a transaction for him alone. And for me it's £4 million minimum.

My caveat to that deal would be them loaning Griffith's to us and them paying his contract. If not then GTF.

I feel it's inevitable this window or January Nisbet a Celtic fan ends up there.

Personal feelings about Griffiths recent exploits aside, this is a move that made a whole lot more sense when Doidge was fit. We can't exactly put a bundle of cash up front until he gets match fit.

We would absolutely need another striker on top of this deal.

If it's true that Griffiths is on a 'pay per play' deal, I'd be interested to know why he signed it? He must have known he had very little chance of getting a game.
I can understand the new boss sanctioning the deal - nothing to lose.

Must be money involved. In him signing the contract/a pay off to him for leaving early etc. Doesn't make much sense he'd re-sign otherwise.

They hadn't bought Kyogo yet, Édouard looks disinterested and was likely to leave, they had European games coming up, Ange was barely in the door... Had panic signing written all over it.

All my Celtic supporting mates were spitting when he got signed on again, talking about not renewing their season tickets etc... They're back to thinking they are Real Madrid four weeks later, obviously.

I've thought for a while that Celtic would be in for Nisbet, if not now then in January. Hibs must surely be aware of this and have planned for his departure. Scott is actually more similar to Nisbet in playing style than he is to Doidge, however I hope he has not been brought to the club as a stop-gap for Nisbet potentially leaving. If we do lose KN, then serious money (at Hibs level) must be spent in securing a replacement who can score 18 goals a season. I am a huge Leigh Griffiths fan, but he is now 31 and his overall fitness must be a problem. There is also the baggage that he would now bring, however I predict if he did come back to Hibs and start scoring regularly for us then all that would be be conveniently forgotten about by the fans.

We have been short of strikers for years. With Doidge out till New Year, Mueller coming in later on and now Scott here for a season we still need to add one more IMO and two if we sell Nisbet. Ross is quoted in todays EEN that he expects some more ins and outs before the window ends and that a central defender is the absolute priority. He didn't however rule out further additions to our last third options.

Griffiths is a very very good goalscorer and on form would be a fantastic signing

I'm with you on this K.....only difference would be 4 million plus Griffiths on a contract ...no loan.
Get him fit, get him settled and happy at the place he loves and he scores goals for fun.
Plus we'd have some cash to spend.
