We paid fees for McLean and Ferguson. Robertson turned us down as he had already agreed a deal with Dundee United.
Why fish in the English lower leagues when there is better talent locally?
Our best signings in recent years have been, debatably,McLean and Ferguson from St Mirren and Hamilton respectively.
That approach coupled with developing our own talent would surely be the way to go.
If we note two of the great successes in this year's English Premier Andy Robertson would have been available from Queen's Park back in the day and Ryan Fraser was raised by Aberdeen.
In conclusion why do we not trawl the Scottish market more and combine that with a continuation of developing and introducing our own youth?
