As Celtic splash out up to £4m on young Argentine left backs, Sevco continue to struggle to meet the cash demands of shopping in the bargain basement of football.
Reports yesterday seemed to suggest the PAOK had taken pity on the cash strapped Ibrox side and agreed a cut price deal for Croatian striker Antonio Colak.
However, their manager has since come out and said a deal hasn’t yet been agreed as it would leave them short of options up front and their season is close to starting.
And now one of their ex players has weighed in on the transfer saga, giving a damning verdict of the player and labelling the the striker “easily replaceable”.
Speaking to Metropolis 95.5, former PAOK midfielder, Toni Gonzalez said.
“We all know how football works.”
“Colak is an important player for PAOK. But, last year, he did not prove what he can offer. Lucescu will have to decide what to do.”
“I think he is a good footballer. And I am always of the opinion that, when you bring in a player, he should be better than the one you have.”
“If you ask me, I can bring you five better than Colak from the Spanish market. From there on, it is another matter whether they will join PAOK. I would demand an amount of over 2 million euros.”
Colak has an extremely poor record of only 3 goals in 29 games for PAOK, a stat Ryan Kent would be proud of.
