Afolabi signing for Dundee on 1 season loan. Think we.ve missed the boat on that one.

C`mon

I don't think so. Good on the ball, lazy when not.

Never really impressed that much. A bit too static and lumbering. Not mobile enough.

Never really rated him. He didn't look like a goalscorer, and just drifted out of games.

He's guaranteed to score against us, but not the type of player we need IMO.

Dundee have signed very well this season too. I’d imagine we will be fighting for the playoffs with them, Inverness and Ayr. I still think Hearts will dominate.

Glad that we haven’t signed him. Didn’t do much when he was here and wouldn’t even have taken him as a backup option.

He was raw, a bit slow and sometimes didnt get involved in the game, but definitely had something about him. Certainly offered more than Coley did and more about him upfront than some others we have had in recent years. Decent at linking up, holding ball up, and was starting to get a few calls with pandemic hit.

Not sure he will ever make it at Celtic, but could have been a decent addition for us.

Officially signs for Dundee on loan for the season. Would've personally taken him back to compete with our current crop of strikers but perhaps Crawford wants to look elsewhere. I still don't think we're set up front with McCann and McGill as our backups for O'hara and Mcmanus but will be interesting to see how the last week of the transfer window develops as squads are finalised

The laddie had never started a domestic first team game until he came here, thats as raw as it gets.

C’mon eco, even I looked like a footballer compared to coley so that’s no comparison.

I’m sure he’ll improve a little with game time but he was not a championship level player when he was here.

Just sitting here drenched in my own negativity!

He was better than McCann or McGill but hopefully Stevie thinks he can do better to supplement what we already have.

I defo would’ve taken him back. We can’t really judge based on the short spell so would’ve been worth a chance.

Interesting that I along with others think we need a 4th striker and have been shot down when potential rivals for 2nd Dundee have 4 and are looking at a 5th

I think there was a decent enough player in there somewhere.

Probably needed more game time.

I’m assuming Dundee have had a cash injection as well this season? They looked like they were struggling at the end of the season - offering players reduced contracts and releasing staff.

My recollection was he spent most of the time on his backside or looking for non existent fouls.

Obviously been used to getting the better of opponents physically at youth level but a big step up to first team football against senior pro's and it showed.

Agree. Seemed to resort to fouling when outmuscled by defenders as well.

Wasn’t the finished article by a long shot but would have taken him over our current 3rd and 4th choice strikers.

I'd rather see Lewis McCann get more game time for the Pars than a bang average Celtic youth player, personally.

McGill, not so much
