I’m off to the celtic game tonight, having never got to see more then cameo appearances for us it will be good to see how he plays against quality opposition in Valencia.

Please let us hear your thoughts on his performance,cheers.

Watching Celtic,Burke playing cf has touched the ball twice in the first half, committed one foul and apart from that has run around like a headless chicken with very poor positional sense.I can see why he didn't get  much of a look in with us.

Watchng the game, OB has shown a good turn of pace (which we already knew) and little else, albeit against a much higher grade of defender than he would meet in the SPL.

Ridiculous statement.  You completely fail to mention he has had zero service and that Celtic can't even string 5 passes together in their third of the pitch let alone the final one.

He could be useful at this level, someone with his pace and physicality can always cause problems. He clearly doesn't have the technical ability level to make it much above this level though, his touch is terrible and he's found out against decent defenders.

He can make a nice career for himself hitting 15-20 a season in the SPL.

Still not convinced he would do better than Scott Sinclair. :(

good all around if Burke gets to stay at Celtic. However, the challenge we will have is recouping anything like what we spent.  I cannot see Celtic coming up with more than £5m for him given their current spending profile, which may be well short of our valuation.

My god the bloke has only been on loan for five minutes and fans are moaning. Stick the loans we got in January into a side to play a top Europea team who can bring on 35 million sub and see how they get on. No service last night was his problem.

Anybody watching the lad? Granted he’s only been on 10minutes but the 3 involvements he’s had proves why he is nowhere near good enough for us.

It proves no such thing. Wait until the end of the season at least to make that sort of call.

4 managers, nearly 2 seasons, 3 different systems. Still nowhere near us.

Cut our losses, move on.

Looks like Ollie's honeymoon period is over

One of the embedded tweets saying Burke is not a striker. No he isn't, and nor should he be.

Looks like Brendan Rogers is going to Leicester today. Wonder what will happen to Burke now?

It's unlikely to be good news for Burke but he will complete his loan period and DM has always said he'll be coming back to us. Sounds like there was some sort of agreement that Burke would be used as a striker at Celtic so we'll have to see if that continues.
Re a comment above about he's not a striker.....all attackers have to be versatile these days, or it helps anyway. Burke is quick, decent in the air. Playing as a striker doesn't always mean being a genuine No 9 like a Rondon.

Ask Brendon to do a swap deal with Burke for Barnes

Really bad news for us and Burke. Rodgers was likely picked as he has a good record of incorporating young players in the past. If Lennon gets the job, I wouldn't be surprised to see Burke become marginalised. One of the criticisms of his time at Hibs that seems to have been repeated by their captain last week was that he froze a few players out who are now getting game time again under a new boss.

Seeing as Burke has fell out of (or was never in) favour with Hassenhutl, Pulis, Pardew and then Moore, it is a reasonable guess that it may be a big risk with Lennon.

Better hope they opt for Clark as manager instead.

Ollie was an unused sub in Celtic’s win yesterday.

Life under Lennon may be a different prospect for him altogether

recall him and offer him to Leicester in exchange for Barnes? We should take the punt that Brendan has been in Jockland so long his brains have been addled !

Ollie was an unused sub in the big Glasgow derby, which Celtic won 2-1

Another benching for him under Lennon

Ollie came on as a 73rd minute substitute as Celtic secured an eighth consecutive title.

Got to be one of the worst buys by our club with the money paid out. Just hope it's all add ons.
