Dundee United striker Shankland is one of Scottish football’s most coveted players and the 24-year-old conjured up a typical poacher’s finish to score his 25th goal of the season against Hibs in today’s Scottish Cup fourth-round clash.

Do you think McKinlay was at the game to watch Shankland?
And given Shankland has scored 25 goals in 25 games so far this season, albeit in the Championship, do you think he’d be capable of making the step up and performing for a club as big as Celtic?
