    Good wee piece in the EEN about him.

    Interesting to see that Hibs/Rod Petrie put him on gardening leave for 18 months, even though he could no longer play.

    I still remember that performance against Celtic, he was outstanding. I had really high hopes for him it's a shame how things turned out for him.

    Good report and just shows how lucky you have to be in football as well as talented. He looked a top prospect as well but obviously the injuries hampered his progress and then stopped him playing

    Heartwarming to hear they way our club treat the players, he actually says itís 2 and a half years we paid him for, 18 months of which he was sofa bound due to the injury.

    A real classy gesture from RP and Iím glad the club is run in a way where we can afford to look after the guys, especially when a young guy has their career ended like this.

    Recall we did something similar, and rightly so, with Tom Smith about 20 years ago.

    Reading that just makes you even more convinced he would have become a great player. I remember him well - mostly, speculating on when he might be back because he looked so good.

    I bet heís a great career coach and those young people in Ayrshire are lucky to have him.

    Thanks for sharing this. Well done Rodders, touch if class that.

    Bailie, like Mark Dempsey should have made the very top.

    He looked great in that Celtic game. Thought we were into a real winner (we possibly were).

    Great from Petrie and the club. Did hearts not punt Cummings as he got injured and they wouldnít pay for treatment?

    Yup. Shafted him through the NHS.

    A sad story but good to see the club supported him when he most needed it.
