      A summer to get in shape and sober up @ a serious Championship side would be a good move. I wonder if he has the appetite for it any more, he must have a few bob in the bank to keep him in guinness for at least a few decades.

      He seems to have lost his way massively, I guess we are about to find out how much football really means to Shane.

      There's a narrative developing that Shane lost his way because he's been in the pubs and in the Casinos?

      Really?

      They've all been closed for nearly all the time he's been at Celtic. They were open when he was with us and he was in them, (but he played brilliantly).

      I think the truth is closer to, Celtic was just the wrong environment for him at the wrong time. His form deserted and he couldn't recapture the confidence.

      He will come back in the summer and there won't be any clubs willing to take on his huge contract. We'll look to loan him out with us paying probably 80 to 90% of his salary.

      There's an outside chance he can't find a suitable loan club, he stays with us and we'll see him again in the stripes in a few cup games or possibly up front in the PL for the last 5 minutes of games where we need an equaliser

      I think it sometimes can be the wrong thing to do to join your boyhood club, it's not just he supported Cetlic, he absolutely adored and idolised them. This season will have left him bereft and broken hearted. I am sure a class act like Shane can turn it round in the right environment.
      Hands, face, space and fresh air....lets take this next step together safely

      He's a tough tackling, throw himself at everything, 'repel all boarders' defender .... great in the Hughton team that played for survival from minute 1.

      I don't know where that sort of player would go ... arguably a Fulham could have used him, but I'm not sure why Celtic wanted him (surely not a few set piece headers). If Derby are ambitious I'd struggle to understand why they would want him either, although keeping Rooney might suggest they aren't!

      I could see him back here with the odd cameo performance, or maybe a Champ club with a leaky defence in second half of season

      While I admire his defend-at-all-cost attitude, I don't rate Duffy as a Premier League player. I'm also not impressed with how he seems to behave off the pitch. Get rid.
      That's just, like, your opinion man.

      With the plethora of centre backs now at the club, and with us adopting a style of football that really doesn't suit him, l really do think that Shane's wearing an Albion shirt may well be over.

      No place for him at the back now, even off the bench, and l really can't imagine that someone like Graham Potter will simply throw a big lump on up front in the last few minutes to try and bludgeon us a goal.

      If it was Chris Hughton then yes absolutely, but those days are long gone now. A great asset in the right set up, but that isn't our way anymore.

      Harsh in the extreme. I readily acknowledge that his days at the Albion are almost certainly over, but he did a great job for us in our first couple of seasons under Chris Hughton in the Premier League, he and Dunky were a formidable partnership at the back. Just saying get rid doesn't show any respect at all.

      Iím sure you were saying this when Duffy was our player of the season.. right? Nah. Course you werenít.

      Shane made the right move at the wrong time. To a dinosaur manager with a deprecating Celtic team trying to play a system that doesnít suit him.

      If he were to go to a Burnley, a Brom, Newcastle, Palace he would be a very solid acquisition for them. Heís not a ball playing defender. But that doesnít mean heís a poor one.
