Possibly a shrewd move by the club not releasing the fee imo.  We clearly have a wee bit of cash to spend this summer and I suspect they are trying to keep their powder dry so other clubs don't know what we have available.  This may yet turn out to be a good window for us as a result.

Quite a rambling statement but clearly not  too happy about the result. Ultimately the rules are the rules and form is not a part of the process.

I feel for Hamilton, but we've been burnt ourselves with this situation. Absolutely delighted that we have Ferguson.

I’d think somewhere between 100-200k. Absolute bargain from what I’ve seen so far. Certainly doesn’t play like an 18 year old.

I don't know, it all seemed a little after the event from them. We had similar with Fraser (not with a tribunal obviously), but everyone - quite rightly - was annoyed with AFC for not acting sooner. We clearly didn't realise we had a player on our hands, and then dicked about offering insulting development wages to a guy who was clearly going to be a first teamer. Everyone blamed the club (a few the player), and correctly so. It was a mistake, and the hope is that we've learned from that. Compare that with our handling of McKenna and it's night and day. The minute he showed first team promise we got him nailed down with a respectful offer on a long contract. Hamilton's entire business model is to promote youth and sell on, that they've made such an error is something that their fans should be holding their CEO to account for. The obvious, and only plausible, conclusion is that they didn't think they had a player on their hands like we did Fraser. The tribunal, it sounds, came to the only conclusion it good given player development and contract offers.

Hamilton feel they have been robbed but if he was still under contract and we had just made an offer of say 750K for a player with so little experience our support would be up in arms.  Valuing a player who has played 14 games for Hamilton at any more than a couple of hundred thousand would be crazy. 

It's night and day comparing his value to that of James McCarthy which they had eluded to.  McCarthy had played a good two or three seasons for the club before he was sold and was much more experienced.

Ferguson made his debut for Scotland U21s coming on as sub against Andorra last night. Almost got a debut goal as well.
