“Blood on Scott Parker’s hands” – Incredible reaction to Celtic’s transfer coup

Away from poking fun at Sevco for a minutre (I’ll get back to that later), an article appeared in The Athletic where the writer was explaining what type of player Celtic are getting in Matt O’Riley.

The expected £1.5m signing from MK Dons is largely unheard of but The Athletic spoke very highly of him, “O’Riley profiles as something of an all-action midfielder who comes alive in the middle and final third.

The right-footed midfielder has seven goals and five assists to his name, with his distribution, finishing and dribbling all catching the eye this season.

O’Riley enjoys taking shots on, registering 40 shots so far in his 26 league appearances, and is a key part of MK Dons’ promotion-chasing form — with him on the pitch, they average 1.77 points per match and are 0.58 goals per 90 minutes better off (FBref).

But it was in the comments section of the article that gives a true fan account of how they feel about the player and the prospect of losing him for such a small fee that grabbed my attention.

User, ‘Will G‘ said of the move, “Blood on Scott Parker’s hands for not giving him a chance in the Championship.

Too many academy prospects are disappearing too soon from us, but it’s great to see the latest crop doing well with their careers after others have previously struggled.

Quite the summation and if all other reports are anything to go by, it seems Ange has pulled another belter from the hat!
