Doak got a few minutes off the bench for Celtic's first team at 16, so you can see why he's highly rated. You can joke about the level of play not being great in Scotland and all but it's a serious achievement anywhere really isn't it. Excited to see how he kicks on. If he had stayed there this could have been a breakout season for him where it's hard not to play him despite his age.

We need to be buying up the best prospects at that age while they're affordable. Between Doak, Ramsey, Bajcetic, Clark, Gordon and Van Der Berg you'd hope to get some first team players, or at least some decent fees if they get sold on (i.e. Hoever, Brewster, Solanke). Hopefully Elliott and Carvalho more of a sure thing as well.
