Surprised at that, thought hibs would’ve rejected it because he just didn’t fancy it and easy for them to say they want more money for him.

I still think Saudi Arabia would be like utter hell to live there, 30 grand a week or no Warnock


They’re starting to get a wee reputation for standing infront of players moves though. That’s 2 good bids for nisbet and boyle they’ve rejected recently when the players want to go, but then maybe you say fair play for valuing their players higher than a couple mil when these teams can pay silly money.

30k a week for 6 months and then back to join Celtic sounds a decent move for him like.

Probably put up in quality digs, playing against tripe and paid handsomely, would be brilliant.

Easy enough to get to Oz/Asia too for WC qualifiers.

Think it’s either tax free out there or a flat tax rate much lower than the UK? So a million quid a year out there is probably equivalent to earning about £1.5 million in the UK. They’ll probably put him up in some fancy villa while he’s out there as well Tony Hmm

Tbh I doubt he’s earned much from football until his current contract he signed in the summer and think he’s late 20s so a couple years there could be the difference between being able to retire properly or having to get another job after football.

From a football perspective it’s presumably a shite league but it’s a much easier location for international breaks with Australia and being acclimatised to the Middle East can’t be a bad thing before the Qatar WC.

Personally wouldn’t want to live in Saudi Arabia but as long as he doesn’t mind indulging in a bit of sportswashing its hard to see a downside Warnock

He's literally being made a millionaire for being able to run in a straight line fast. Ivan Sproule absolutely spewing he isn't playing in 2021.

Just read he’s already on loan at some German mob but rangers have recalled him.

I personally would take the Saudi dollar and make up for it by doing Twitter threads about how bad they are after coming home Deal with it

Hibs boy in my group chat saying rumours are that they've accepted a bid for Boyle and their new signing Clark has done his hamstring and is out for 2 months. Hope both are true jjay

Double your wage for an extra hour commuting. We’d all take that.

Tbf United do have more potential and better fans, tradition. A proper Derby too.

Aye, I think so. He will be on buttons at Motherwell as he was lucky to get that move after not setting the heather on fire at Johnstone.

United can drop Shankland levels of wage if they want their man, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s went from 2k a week to 4-5k a week.

All conjecture of course. Maybe he’s trebled his wage. Depends what he was on and also what motherwell offered alongside United’s offer

Dundee United are probably paying more but they’re also a bigger club with a much higher ceiling than Motherwell. Probably the best move Watt could have got unless Aberdeen fancied him.
