We can also rule him out as one of the pre-contract lost focus scapegoats.

I wonder who will be joining us next season; mccall has a big rebuilding job on his hands.

Too hard to give any meaningful suggestions given we don't know what division we will be in but I would suggest given our injury problems this season we should be looking at players who were available for 80%+ of their current sides matches this season even if they did not start ie not injured.

I think we need to cut adrift some of the perennially injured/miss at least 10 games a season in the current squad no matter how popular.

From the 'out of contracts' expect Crawford, McDaid and Shankland to be signed up quickly and move elsewhere. 
Hope we can keep a hold of Geggan, McCowan and Moff. 
I love Jamie Adams as he is so versatile and rarely has a bad game, but his injury problems are never ending. 
After that lets see some freshness in the squad.  This might bring about some competition and hopefully some confidence to a team who were excellent for 70% of the season.

If we go up serious upgrading required so really can't sign up to many before the season ends.

As per previous post, need to look at moving on those that miss 10-15 games every season through injury no matter how popular.

I doubt Ferguson and McGuffie will be there next season despite being contracted.

Louis Longridge released by Dunfermline would be a decent and not unrealistic signing as he was one of their better players - I would imagine he will be back to the SPL with someone else though.

Higginbotham released as well - he would be worth signing to fill the obligatory scapegoat role -  things would genuinely be his fault - thus taking the pressure off of Harvie/Crawford/Moore or whoever else's turn it is.

Be interesting to see who stays/goes and where they end up - I have a funny feeling it will be a wtf moment when Shankland signs for Dundee or St Johnstone or someone else equally underwhelming.

I would like us to try and find a midfielder who will look to shoot and can blooter it from thirty yards, either scoring or getting a parry that falls to the enrushing striker - McCowan might have that in his game. I think the lack of an out of the box midfield goal threat was as much our undoing as injuries and opponents working out how to play against us.

Players who aren't only fit July-November also a must.

I expect we will be linked with Jordan Preston when Shankland leaves.

Scott Fox available as he can't agree terms with Ross County.
