Celtic have now signed Timothy Weah, who plays a similar position to Burke. Also being linked with another forward in the papers today. Burke will have his work cut out getting into their team at this rate.

Burke to the championship looked a better move to me, or to Rangers or similar.

Granted he hasn’t had too much game time, but the decision to loan Butler out before knowing Barnes future is even more bizarre.

Burke has been a waste of time effort and money and wouldn't be any closer than the bench were he still at the Albion.

Would much rather see Harper/Edwards given a chance to shine to be honest.

Reckon we've got a recall clause like the Barnes one?

The fact that Burke a player who on paper could fill the slot that Barnes has vacated was loaned out before Barnes future was clarified suggests that whatever is wrong with Burke in the eyes of coaching staff is deep seated. It also suggests that despite whatever Darren has said to the contrary we are pretty close to giving up on him altogether.

Be interesting to see how he gets on up top. I'm hoping he goes there, scores goals and comes back a new player.

Burke is Celtic's No.900
Celtic 0-0 Airdrieonians

Oliver Burke became the 900th player to wear the Celtic shirt as the Scotland winger makes his debut on loan from West Brom.

FT Celtic 3-0 Airedrionians

Burke plays full 90 min, but not on the score sheet

An eventful or otherwise debut

85 mins
Oliver Burke has a great chance to score on his Celtic debut.

The on-loan West Brom winger rises unmarked to meet an Emilio Izaguirre cross but makes a mess of his header from 10 yards.

That comes seconds after a low Timothy Weah cross just evades Burke in front of goal.

Watched most of the game (for gambling reasons 8) ) , not going to jump on Burke's back but he did little against a poor but spirited Airdrie side in a Cup game .
Not convinced he'll ever make a forward let alone anything else.

Got to hope Rodgers learns how to channel his ability. He is not quite disciplined enough to be a winger and it doesn't feel a natural fit for his game, but as a front man he lacks the natural strikers instinct. He probably needs to be converted into a wide forward as he has a lot of pace, power and energy, but he is one of those enigma type players.

Couldn't watch the game due to it being on premier sports, so I've tried to look for fan reports. A number of them say his touch was poor and nobody coming out saying he played great.

As pointed out by a few of them though, he hasn't started a game for months, and he is still young. Rodgers could be the answer.

I read a report somewhere saying Leipzig let him go as he lacked tactical awareness.

To be fair he doesn't strike me as someone who naturally understands the game. It's something that could possibly develop in him as he matures as he clearly has some natural yet very raw ability, its easy to forget he's still pretty young too as it feels like he's been around for a long time.

A loan move was much needed as he simply needs minutes on the pitch and as long as he gets game time at Celtic it should improve him as he's stagnated since that move to Germany.

Can we keep this to Oliver Burke please, any other SPFL score updates have a thread in General Sports for them.

Looks like he is going to get game time and a few goals out at Celtic this second half of the season. Really frustrating that we opted to keep Burke, Leko AND Edwards all her first half of the season when we were clesrly not going to use them.

We really need to learn from this lesson, this move could well do Burke the world of good and get us money back on what has so far looked the biggest overspend in our history.

he is still only 21..he will be getting game time at a big club hopefully score goals every week and come back a different player...get rid of players like kanu and give these kids a proper chance not 5mins at end of a game,sooner players like brunt and kanu go the better

At the same time, he's not been used by 3 different managers now which is quite telling. 21 appearances for us in total with no real return. I remember Leko getting an assist having been on for 5 minutes vs Stoke a few seasons back and even he isn't used too much, whereas Burke hasn't even done that.
I think he'd have to score loads to be properly noticed whilst at Celtic.

Agreed.  Hopefully either they’ll buy him or it will ensure that we can get a good price for him on the summer, or we’ll be getting back a better and more mature player.  A no-lose situation.

None of our coaches have given any youngster a chance at club, with little or no financial support from owner academy and younger squad players should be used more. If Burke improves under Rodgers what does that say about Moore and Jones?
