At 32, he's hardly finished, and hardly going to get a big pay day at Falkirk.

Who's your alternative?

Lee Miller is exactly the signing we need, failing that Jon Daly but I wouldn't sign both. We'd still need 1 other striker however. Lee/daly, Baird and Biabi are 3 completely different options and a fourth would give us variety up front which we haven't had this season.

I'd also look to sign a right back and a creative midfielder. I'd have no problem at all if we resigned Liam Craig. Personally I'd also look to replace Macdonald but that's purely on the info I've heard that he's the top earner at the club and if I'm honest I don't think that's justified if true and he's replaceable

Lee Miller is best left alone in my book. Excellent the first time round and it's great that he's been back to see us play a few times since but I can't see him being anything like the player we had before.
If Clarkson and Keatings are still available along with Baird and Biabi that would be my ideal and hopefully if we can get a cheaper goalkeeper (going by rumours on here about McDonalds salary) then hopefully we could push the boat out a little for them.
I'd take Kello in goals but none of the other names mentioned in the original post.
I think we need 2 forwards, a right back and maybe another attacking midfielder (and a keeper if McDonald does leave) and I think we have the makings of a very good team for next seasons 1st division.

Saw him play for Killie a couple of times last season and for their under 20's at Westfield and he was utterly hopeless every time I saw him. As is the norm there will be hundreds of players looking for a job during the summer break. I'd hope our scouts and manager will be able to unearth some decent talent instead of bringing in an old face whose been struggling to get a game for anyone for a good while now.

He was brilliant for us 1st time around but looked a shadow of that player the few times Ive seen him on TV/Sportscene this year - and Killie fans were pretty scathing about his performances this season. Would prefer we went for someone younger, faster and not looking for a final contract to top up the pension. Kello would be OK, as would Liam Craig - not sure about Jon Daly - pretty injury prone is he not.
Most of Miller's appearances came from the bench last season at Killie as he had picked up a couple of injuries. I think he would be the ideal foil for Baird to work with.

Would like to see Muirhead and Grant at the back with McCracken as back up. Definitely need a couple of strikers
Baird and Miller? Surely that would like slow motion...we need speed to open defences to make us exciting...I am even questioning Baird as a striker too, to me he is slow and looks at least 2 stones overweight

Baird didn't look that much of a slouch when he ran away from Lee McCulloch at Ibrox to create Taiwo's goal. He will score goals in this league given the right partner, we certainly could have done with him on Saturday, i'd almost forgot that Smith was actually playing.

That'll do

With Hibs signing Keatings that gives them striking options of Keatings, Cummings, Dja Djedje, Malonga, Handling and Farid. It would be reasonable to assume that at least one of them may be looking for a new club come new season. I would take any of them at the club and given his problems with injury Farid may be the first out the door...

Maybe we could loan Liam Henderson from Celtic although I suspect they would like him to go to a higher division if they plan on sending him out again.

He's at Rosenborg and seems to be doing well. No chance of getting him as Rosenborg are actually keen to sign him permanently. However, Celtic see him as being the next big thing and are in no hurry to sell him. Source, his grandad (who is Nicky's father in law).

Faure, McCulloch, Boyd, Mohsni, Black, Smith, Daly, Foster, Hutton, Simonson, Robinson have all left Rangers.

If macdonald leaves, should we be looking at robinson? Looked ok from what i saw of him last season.
What we think of these players (except from moshni lol)

Daly is a Houston type player, in that his knees are crocked and he wouldn't play more than 10 games a season.

Robinson is a dreadful suggestion for a goalkeeper.

Marc wilson formally of dundee united is a free agent and would be a good acquisition to the squad i think. Was really surprised that he spent 4 months at dumbarton to be honest
