it annoys me as much as it annoys you. its also stealing the scouting from the wee clubs, these wee clubs find good players at a good price, a rare commodity, and have to scour europe to find them. in the case of didier agathe, its different, as hes a 1st team regular, but well, i suppose he wasnt bought with that in mind, maybe. its also depends on the player, whether they can make it.
I think he's a great signing for Celtic and I predict he will play more games than Sylla, McNamara and Weighorst who ARE squad players and will indeed play far more games than Lubomir Moravcik did last season.
he could prove to be a good buy for the SPL but i think you will need something a bit more for Europe
as for Rangers and Celtic 'stealing' other teams players. Mixed views on this - partly what has already been said in the thread, but it also has to be remember that the £1 million will really help Livingston given the dodgy financial circumstances in the game at this time
