Again, good point - that lack of coeffiency has deterred the big players from signing. As i said though, if your a Championship player with teams looking at you even from the EPL - IF Celtic are in the CL Group Stage I know for a fact young hungry players and their agents are attracted by Celtic.
Sometimes @Gash premier league clubs ruin players - look at Aiden McGeady (!) and Liam Miller (Man Utd) and the best example is Tony Watt.
McGeady was never that good a player, looking good in the SPL massively clouds the judgement on him, he's pretty much looked completely out his depth since he came here. Liam Miller was never a Man Utd player and another who looked good in the SPL but struggled with the gulf in class. It was always a strange move that, saw the bright lights and left on a free only to become a journeyman which would suggest he wasn't good enough in the first place. Wasn't aware that Watt had played in the Premier League? He's dined out well on "that" goal but the fact he's back at Hearts would probably suggest he's Championship/League 1 standard at best.
It's all relevant though, it's a bit like a food chain, the Old Firm take young Scottish players then some of the Premier League clubs take the top Old Firm players but that's becoming few and far between these days. Scott Brown sums up the state of Scottish football, one of the top players there even though he's not very good and in his 30's now and never once been seriously linked with a big move.
On another point of interest Alan Stubbs did an amazing job at Hibs and is now at Rotheram, if he continues like that especially in a EPL job, future candidate for Everton hot seat?
I don't think he did that well at Hibs, made a right mess of things a couple of times trying to get out the Championship, fair enough he won their first cup but the Premiership is where they need to be and he blew it twice.
