Celtic don’t have too much problem with buying players.  Deeper pockets than most Championship sides

Not really. They've spent more than £6m on a player once in 18 years.

I'd be loathed to send him to Rangers or Celtic.

Both are big clubs and if he does well as a Scot, you can see a player getting swept up in it. Neither have serious money so I could see us getting our trousers pulled down.

Where ever he goes though I hope we put penalties in the loan agreement like Everton supposedly do. We cant let anyone use him to pack a squad and waste everyone's time. He needs to be playing.

Forget the fee that we paid for him that has gone now it is just a question of moving him on and recovering anything we can. The first step in that process is getting him playing somewhere anywhere.

I just  want to see him playing to be honest, wherever he goes. He clearly has talent and needs to get some game time in. Best case scenario is that he goes to Celtic, starts on a regular basis, scores a few goals and gets noticed. At the end of the season we get a decent player back or a saleable asset. I don't think we can afford to be too picky on where he goes based on their ability to buy him at the end of the loan. The lad is no mug - he just needs to be pointed in the right direction.

Depends what we want. If he was to shine in the Scottish prem we should be able to get some reasonable money back....could also repair some damaged confidence.

No point loaning him to Celtic, probably wouldn't start and would be playing against dross whenever he got on the pitch. Bottom 5 Championship or even a League 1 team where he's guaranteed to start every game.

Have to agree with that, Dundee / Hamilton et al should hardly be a real test for him, if, he is to be good enough to stay with what will likely be a premiership cannon fodder side next term.

top Coach in Rodgers could get the best out of him and he's not shy in playing youngsters in his side.

This. If he's still going to be in charge, then Burke could probably do with his approach to the game tbh.

From the Birmingham Mail today - Celtic, Forest and Milwall allegedly interested.

https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/celtic-oliver-burke-west-brom-15628443

"West Brom winger Oliver Burke is a man in demand.

Celtic are known to be interested in signing him in the January transfer window, and now it seems he has a new admirer.

Nottingham Forest are reportedly monitoring his situation at West Brom.

The former Reds winger looks likely to leave the Hawthorns this month with Millwall recently said to want him on loan .

With Celtic and Milwall interested in the Scotland international on a short-term basis, Forest are also keeping tabs on developments.

West Brom signed Burke in August 2017 on a five-year contract, but he has managed just three league appearances from the bench for Darren Moore’s Baggies this term."

Has now gone on loan to Celtic.

Will do him good and maybe they'll buy him off us at the end of the season.

Glad he has gone out on loan early, but not sure if Celtic would have been my first choice. I've seen a few times this season where Scott Sinclair has been a sub, and he is fsr more developed that Oli Burke.

Still, this will definitely get him exposure and maybe being in Scotland will be good for him. If he does well, then Celtic might be prepared to splash the cash on him.

Should be ok up there..lots of kick and rush and 1000 mph frantic football..just look at Sinclair....not  suitable for us even though only limited chances..doubt we will see half of the 15million if he is sold..

I wish him all the best and hope he does well. There's a good player in there, he just needs regular games. You could say that though for most the younger players in our team though.

I hope he goes there and does well....im sure there is a really good player in there who could make a serious impact in the future.

Glad we've stated no option to buy and its purely because we want him to develop into the player he can be and then utilise him

Best of luck to him

Let’s be honest, he’s not impressed here and isn’t going to get any more chances in the team. So a loan move is best for both parties. If he does well he’s putting himself in the shop window for a summer move

Not sure that Scotland is an environment which will challenge him too much, that said if he does not shine in that side in that league we will know what to do with him and if he does he will have earned another chance down here. I suspect much will rest upon his attitude

Hope he get enough chances there, I think Brendan Rodgers could benefit to his development.

What a disastrous signing. £15 million...Only in football would such a failed outlay be swept under the carpet.

Nothing against the lad by the way - whenever I saw him play for us, he always gave his all. He just wasn't upto it. I wish him well at Celtic.

I think he’ll be a hit in Scotland. Similar to Scott Sinclair

I hope he does brilliantly up there and that they buy him.

Hopefully, our upfront fee for him was about £8m-£10m and we can get half that back at least, as this guy is terrible.

All the best Ollie, please tear it up there.
