I know just about everyone other than RS himself has formed an opinion on Gunning, but at times like these I like to think back to what Morton fans said about him when he joined us.

They were gutted to see him go. They said he'd been a real stand-out performer at centre back, and while I'm fully aware that you can make a strong argument against the standard of Scottish football I do believe Gunning has ability.

I also accept that he's not really shown his potential with us, so it's up to RS as to whether we take a gamble on him for next season.

Not sure which league Morton play in but but outside their Prem, the general standard in Scotland is very much non-league level, with a few exceptions

But he's only played 2 games in centre back, I feel sorry for him in that respect.

I remember Brentford fans saying very much the same about Matt Heywood.....

Lets face it, MB shot himself in the foot with this one, bigged him up as a "future target" that we got early, pace, strength, technical ability, personality all promised.... in his games to date i can only recall one moment where he looked composed on the ball and broke between the lines carrying the ball forward. He has been sent off, red mist at Blackpool by all accounts and was it Crewe where he pretty much clothes lined one of their players running through ?
No pace, terrible with the ball by and large and i wouldnt say that great in the air either. Yes he gets in the way sometimes and disrupts play but personally would be very disappointed if we couldnt find a much better replacement.

Oh dear god Heywood...Slowest turn in the football league I've seen trucks make a 180 faster. But on Gunning regardless of if we think he's had a fair chance to show what he can do on the pitch aren't his attitude problems a worry on their own? Looking into his history it's nothing new he's had similar outbursts of madness in Scotland like he's had for us.

Not much good to keep a player who habitually gets outbursts of anger and commits acts to violence to get sent off several times a season.
