I read a couple of reports on him and the teams interested and Celtic were mentioned along with nearly every big team in England and a few European clubs. It was around this time i also read his father , who acts as his agent, was a big Celtic fan and Billy himself was a Celtic fan. i have since been told this it untrue and he is from a family of Rangers supporters and until recently his cousin was posting on Follow Follow. He has taken a back seat from posting as he was getting so much hassle about his young cousin
Time will tell if he is the real deal. Hopefully we have a sell on clause in the deal.
His cousin did say it was down to Rangers and Chelsea at the end. He also said the young lad had agonised over it. IMO he has 100% made the correct decision. All this lost to football nonsense and never get near the first team talk. Robbie Crawford, Chris Hegarty, John Fleck, Charlie Telford, Andy Murdoch, Luca Gasporoto, Craig Halkett, Scott Roberts, Ryan Hardie, Tom Walsh, Danny Stoney, Ryan Sinamon and many many others. All more or less to top class football and all touted at one time or another among the best in the country.
Lewis McLeod and Barrie McKay are the exceptions that prove the rule
