Fans react to Celtic latest transfer business


Ross County clearly is of the opinion that they have pulled off a major coup with the signing of Jamie Lindsay permanently.

The 22-year-old spent the 2017-18 season at Dingwall but was unable to stop the Staggies’ fall to the second tier. Yet with promotion not far off, Ross County did not dally to sign Lindsay for the second time.

“He is a hungry and talented young midfielder who was much in demand with other clubs so it’s a real coup to have got him back to Ross County on a permanent deal,” co-manager Steven Ferguson told the Evening Times.

“Getting Jamie back to Dingwall permanently was a real priority for us during the close season and we think he will have a big part to play in the coming season.”

After a season in which former Celtic youngsters like Dylan McGeouch, Darnell Fisher and Graham Carey seem to move up the ladder in their careers, however, it remains to be seen whether the Hoops will one day regret not providing the Glasgow-born Lindsay the opportunity to grow his career with them.

The now-22-year-old kicked off his career with Celtic but never appeared with the first team. However he proved to be top tier material at Ross County where he made 32 appearances across all competitions.

And, while some Celtic fans have given him their blessing, others are wondering whether the decision to let Lindsay go was a wise one.
