Crann’s report states that the club are set to receive £300,000 as part of the agreement which saw Shaw join Celtic earlier this week, and it seems that whereas some fans of the cash-strapped side were far from impressed, others believe it was a pretty shrewd move:

Judging by the responses to the tweet, many are pleasantly surprised by what seems like a good bit of business.

Only time will tell as to whether the fans will regret this move or continue to look back on it with fondness.
