The Ross County fans seem to rate his performances, good strength and work rate but a glaring lack of goals.
He's still only young so the goals could come in time. If he was working hard, being a headache for defences and creating chances for Rhodes or Gestede to put away, then I wouldnt be complaining
Looks like the penalty he won tonight may have just kept Ross Co up

Fair enough, makes sense.

Easy to put them on the list but much harder to move them on. You can see all of them being still at Rovers this time next season but been on loan somewhere.

Statement of intent, better than not making it.

Indeed a good statement of intent and probably might look good in the eyes of the financial fair play that we are seen to be trying at least to lower the wage bill. Not to mention of course the six players in question have nothing to offer us at all. Which brings up the point of do these players have anything to offer other clubs. Certainly not on the wages some of them are on. We often hear of players renegotiating contracts when they perform well for the club. Why can't it work the other way around. Etuhu has recently stated he wants to stay at Rovers as he feels he hasn't left his mark yet. Quite true but lets see him take a drop in wages until he can live up to what he was brought in to do in the first place. Put your money where your mouth is Dickson. As for Best and the rest i don't expect any comments stating a desire to stay and fight for the cause. Good luck to them when there contracts run out because i don't see any club in there right mind will fork out similar financial reward Rovers have given them.

Don't remember seeing anything like this in public before. Maybe a message to those players as much as to other clubs. I wonder if it will ultimately come down to a choice between money or personal pride for a few of them.

Haven't Rayo got an option to buy him as part of the loan deal? As with Judge, no need to advertise...
