Am I the only one who thought O'Hara looked very comfortable playing in the back four. I wouldn't hesitate to play him there again.

I agree.

I thought O'Hara and McGuire both did fine and should continue until some injuries clear up.

Aye, I was sure Jock Brown was incorrect when he was saying pre-match that’s how we would line up but both done fine. Interested to see how they do against better teams. Likewise the big keeper- did everything that was asked of him, albeit that wasn’t much.

O'Hara used to play as a defender for Killie so it wasn't a big surprise he looked comfortable at the back. Certainly seems a decent option and he bring his plastic pitch experience to Livi this weekend.

He made his debut at the age of 16 for Killie and was a center back for them until Paul Hartley converted him into an attacking midfielder at Dens Park. Seemed to be highly thought of at Rugby Park but his slender figure back then apparently seen him struggle defensively.

I seen earlier Queens Park have signed Michael McGlinchey, he never made much of an impression playing for us while on loan but I think he ended up playing at the 2010 World Cup not long after departing.

I just saw that on Sportscene. No VAR needed for that effort.

David Turnbull left wi skelfs in his arse again today. Cant help but think his mysterious "injury" last year has panicked him into a wrong move. At a time when he needs to be playing, he is on Celtic's bench, getting 2 or 3 minutes every now and again. Still,  hopefully he will be an unused sub in the Cup Final and can get himself a Medal!

He was never going to walk into a regular start in that team, and doubt anyone told him otherwise. He'll do just fine.

He'd agreed the move before the injury.

The quotation marks around the word injury suggest you think it was fabricated?

Nope, just that it was a weird situation. It was an "injury" that never made him miss any games and was only picked up on a scan, yet needed serious surgery. Therefore, to my mind not an injury in the traditional sense, but more some kind of defect he always had.

Anyway thats beside the point. They have Ryan Christie who is apparently the second coming of christ, Ntcham has been moved forward from his "traditional" deeper role and now Rogic is back on the scene in a big way. Theres no chance Turnbull is getting anywhere near that team this season, apart from a few 5-10 mins here or there. They had literally no other attacking midfielders in the recent Old Firm game and STILL Turnbull only got a couple of minutes

Haha I know right, they probably told him to go for "surgery" and spend nearly a year in "rehab".

 

I'm being "serious" btw.

Hopefully it's a runners up medal.
