I agree but we could sign a player for £5m+ who isn't as good as those to. That doesn't mean Shankland would be a success but it doesn't mean he wouldn't be useful either.Is be better than Alfredo - No
Is he better than Defoe - No
I think you have your answer.
It's like calling up Kenny Deuchar in the 2000's. The inability of Clarke shouldn't be used as a barometer of someone else's abilitiesHaven’t really watched him but getting called up to the international squad from the 2nd tier is genuinely impressive no matter how bad Scotland are.
