    I don't believe we would have done that deal. We're a compassionate employer having funded his sick leave, but I can't imagine we would still be paying the full wage while he is at Celtic. Pure hypothesis - maybe Celtic pay 20k, we pay 50k?
    The "whatever we can get" needs to be a significant clawback on our costs in the last 2 years.
    Might be right if they paid us a substantial loan fee instead.

    Not sure how accurate this site is but suggest Celtic are paying 40K per week - 50%?
    I think I read somewhere Celtic had a wage ceiling of 35k.

    We can hold out for a significant clawback on our losses and end up keeping him till the end of his contract, and lose a whole lot more.

    Angus Gunn doesn't seem to be totally in favour with Ralph. Do you think Ralph may want to retain Forster and have him compete with Macca?
    I guess we'll make a decision at the end of the season, whether to retain or look for offers on FF. Lots of talk that FF will take a wage drop, but no talk about what Celtic will give to us to make it happen.

    Except the club aren't because he's only on loan until end of the season and there is no deal in place with Celtic yet for a permanent move. Two years more of his enormous contract extension that stupid fool now at the FA gave him. Bet Fraser's agent couldn't believe his luck.

    Low fee or no fee and Celtic pick up the wages instead of a bigger fee is the only way out for Saints. And slap themselves around the head for not sacking Reed after the January 2017 transfer window debacle.

    Not directly him but as usual, 3 shots, 3 goals.

    Only saves things if it hits him mostly.
