Caulker the Bhoy that got away

Fair play to Steven Caulker first and foremost, mental issues are not trivial and I offer him congratulations for returning to the field with aplomb, last night he looked every bit the defender we should have signed on a free in the last window.

McCann came with a plan to frustrate Celtic and the Dee’s executed it with great professionalism, I hate the wee rat but you can’t fault a team at the bottom parking the bus vs the Champions.

Caulker cleared plenty of balls from attacking areas and harassed our Bhoys when we were on the ball relentlessly, he looked like a player we should have picked up on a free in January.

That he has been subjected to a bid for 1.8 million pounds from Rosenborg shows the esteem he is held in.

Dundee have taken a mature view of their own survival by rejecting the bid, after selling us Hendry they needed a stop gap in defence and it would appear that they haven’t just made a million on Henry’s transfer but will be in line for an improved bid for Caulker in the next window.

If that bid comes from England, then it will be an amazing bit of business for the Premiership strugglers.

I wish Caulker all the best, it is maybe a transfer that Celtic will look at in the Summer, somewhat ruefully thinking he could have been ours for free.
