The player, who scored 123 goals for Celtic, will know that there is almost no chance of him being offered anything going forward by Celtic and the fact that Dundee are not using him despite their struggles for goals is telling. He has been offered a number of chances in recent times but fitness issues have left him struggling for game time.
