Loan deals to Championship sides would be more beneficial than Celtic young stars playing in the Lowland League…
Duncan Ferguson was recently announced as the manager of Inverness Caley Thistle, and his comments regarding seeking loan deals from premiership clubs made for interesting reading. Ferguson said that he was seeking to use his connections in the top flight to bolster his squad in the form of loan deals.
He name checked our own manager Brendan Rodgers, saying he spoke to him the very morning of the day he was announced as the new boss at the Highland club. This would from a footballing point of view make perfect sense, sending out youngsters and squad players used to get much needed experience in the decent surroundings of the Scottish Championship.
In my opinion it would be much more beneficial than playing in the Lowland League which is one of the reasons why we have been having increasing difficulty retaining our top young talent, although the excellent news this morning from Fabrizio Romano that young left-back Mitchel Frame is going to be signing a new contract at Celtic bucks that particular trend.

Playing against experienced pros in front of decent crowds will do more for the development of players than playing against players who with the greatest respect aren’t in the same quality and perhaps Inverness would be a decent shout for you Frame?
Just like the old reserve league it will bring young players on leaps and bounds and make them more first team ready. It makes perfect sense. Let’s hope it materialises.
Just an Ordinary Bhoy
