Being highly praised for his display today. Star man for home team versus Motherwell today. Just to keep AU and others who didn't think much of him in the loop. Laughing

Well in defence of AU Embow, the ahemm "wonder kid" had to show improvement at some point.

He's managed a grand total of 0 goals this season. The boy is a complete dud.

He has just turned 19. Still playing premier league and for his country. Your comments are completely dud!

The issue with Wighton is that he is looked upon by club and fans as some Wunderkid, when he doesn't live up to expectations by outsiders he is considered fair game, the club and fans are just as much to blame for promoting him in this manner.

Don't know what the fuss is.

He was completely hopeless with us, be it through lack of effort, poor motivation, lack of confidence, poor players around him....could be all or none of the aforementioned. Bottom line he was rubbish.

He isn't our player, he never was our player. Some loans work out, plenty don't, that's football. Barrie McKay looked a Sunday league player for us, year or so later he is a Scotland international!

Good luck to the Wighton, I really hope he goes on to realise the potential that plenty people believe he has

Was listening to open all mics on BBC radio yesterday - Wighton was getting a lot of praise from the reporter at the game. Involved very heavily in both goals apparently.


At the end of the day the boy couldn't be arsed playing for us - seems to always play well at Dens. I was very glad when he left us - waste of a shirt.

Got MoM yesterday, apparently.
Saying no more on this guy until he pops up with a hat trick for Scotland in the next World Cup finals! Razz

Terrific. I'll have to suffer another editorial piece in the Courier this week about his coming of age Rolling Eyes

Signs a 3 year deal with hearts. Possibly Daly behind this move?

We should get a cut in the form of a development fee, having had Wighton on loan.
Probably about two quid and given Dundee's record of honouring creditors, we may wait a while.

2 would be paltry compared to the two figure sum we received in respect of the Jamie Walker settlement.
