Dembele went for 20m. Just 20m short of the price Celtic fans wanted for him.

He would be mad not to go if Arsenal or some other top club went for him.

True, ironic that Scotland has 2 fantastic left backs - probably the best 2 about, in Tierney and Robertson of Liverpool.

Do they though? One is a good left back in Scottish football and the other is genuinely world class.

As suggested previoulsy 30m for Tierney is ridiculous! I'd say 20m would be decent money for him. Also a record for Scotland!

Hard to know but Robertson was playing part-time football a few years ago.  Tierney is good also - 20m is a bargain.

If you said a part-time in player in Scotland would win a Champions Lge medal a few years down the line, you'd be laughed out of town.

You could pick up good Scottish players/players from Scottish league handy enough and for a bargain...if you take a risk.

Look at VVD at Southampton.  They took a risk and sold him off for big cash.  Scotland is a good testing ground for a player - rough and ready.  A good player will stand out and be ready made for the Premiership.  If they survive Scotland, they will develop elsewhere.

But the thing was....Dembele wanted to go at that point.  Celtic had the option - hold out for more and not get it or get shot or him as he would have been sulking.

They made the right decision - good business.

Tierney is different - he would stay if Celtic don't get enough.  He understands the craic!!

Dembele is a forward player! Not many teams paying big money for left backs from a lower league.

Does KT really know the craic though? Hes a professional footballer. Hes won 3 trebles and hes still only a young player. He would be mad in the head to turn down the money from EPL. If he gets a decent off we and Celtic accept the money then he should go. Would hate to see him go but hes achieved everything he can with Celtic currently. If Celtic have a nightmare season next year they might not even get 20m for him. Would be good to get some Arsenal players come to Celtic in the deal.

Celtic fans appreciated his real value.

Celtic should push to get Smith Rowe or Nelson on loan as part of any deal. Both very talented prospects
