I've been hearing young Rossiter will not play again this season. Has anyone else heard this? What the hell is wrong with him and why haven't the club announced any injury or medical condition . Why the big secret?

because this is the latest disaster with this years signings whether its tue o not that's why liverpool let him go as easily but i could have wrong info

While I wouldn't put too much faith in these rumours and would hope that it is rubbish anyone that knew Rossiter at Liverpool knew that he was a talent but that the lad had injury problems with some Liverpool supporters even suggesting that it was down to training methods!
In any event the signings made as a result of our quality Head of Coaching, McParland have not exactly been mind blowing and while he was finding players that have yet to set the heather alight Celtic went out and signed Dembele for £500k! Perhaps our Board has not set its sights as high as they should have but that is becoming the standard under King!

Gers are too quiet when it comes to rossiter. he's went from 3 weeks away from a return to 3months out something not right.

Tbf, tomusa, dembele was never close to being within our current price range. The fee was £500k which we could've afforded easily enough and we could also have agreed to him recieving a a healthy percentage of a future transfer fee as celtic have apparently done but we couldn't have matched his signing on fee (which I'm led to believe was hefty) or his reported £32k per week wages. Just not in our current ball park unfortunately. Celtic will receive a huge fee for him eventually imo but there won't be anywhere near as big a profit in it as we will be led to believe once he gets his cut etc.

It actually annoying me that people are calling Dembele the 500k player. He was out of contract and signed on a small development fee.

Spart17, I don't disagree with what you say but we were led to believe that McParland was some form of "sorcerer's apprentice" that would unearth at least one or two quality players. Sadly I am still waiting although, even quality players on Bosmans cost money and if King does not have the ambition to bring in quality that will make a difference and a massive profit for the club then we simply won't acquire their services!
Who knows, perhaps now that he has sold one of his South African Businesses to a US Company we might see some investment!

But he cost 500k so he's definitely a 500k signing.

It was a 500k development fee.
