    Default Jermaine Beckford

    This lad is quality!

    Leeds have just transfer listed him as he has refused a new contract and they don't want their best player leaving for free. He's scored 34 goals this season, and 54 in 98 appearances for Leeds. I watch Leeds whenever i get the chance and IMO Beckford is genuine quality. Would love to see Celtic sign him even for a couple of a million smackers. Born goalscorer and i reckon he would do a great job, given the chance for us.

    Thoughts?

    There's a reason why he's only ever played for League One teams, even for that league a 55% strike rate isn't that impressive. I mean look at Billy Sharpe who romped that league scoring 53 goals in 82 appearances for Scunthorpe, once he took the step up to Sheffield United he scored 8 in 51.

    There is little difference in quality between a lot of L1 teams and a number SPL teams.

    True. Still, i believe he is capable of making a big step-up. Definately capable of producing the goods at a higher level, the lad just oozes class.

    Yeah, for me anyhting more than 2/3m might be too big a risk. But i'd just love to see him given his shot at the bigtime with Celtic, i don't think he'd dissapoint!

    He had a shot, with carlisle and scunthorpe, and didn't impress.

    Sounds like the kind of player Celtic would scramble for, promising young English player who would cost double his worth. And we're meant to be watching the penny's

    Nah the boy sounds no bad, but as said before depends what kind of dough we're talking.

    I think we were linked with him a while back

    I'd take a gamble on him, he looks the part, but I think the Wolves and Birminghams of this world just might beat us to him, with a shitload more money to spend as well.
