Glasgow Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha elected against bringing the talented winger to Ibrox and it looks smart for now.
In the summer, if you told Hearts fans that Rangers target Jamie Walker would have no goals and no assists in his first nine games of the 2017-18 campaign then they probably would have laughed at you for such an outrageous suggestion.
After all, the 25-year-old was a major player for them last season and 12 goals in 28 Premiership starts - more than Patrick Roberts - proved as much.
But that is the reality for Walker and Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha is now looking slightly better than he did in August when he refused to be held to ransom for him.
It was the summer transfer saga in Scotland and in the end Caixinha wouldn't go above £600,000 for the man whom Hearts wanted £1 million for.
Walker's form is very peculiar based on how brilliant he was last season and you wonder whether his failed move to Rangers has caused his morale to plummet which manifests itself in such a disappointing start to the season.
It was a very exciting summer for the Gers on the transfer front and it wouldn't be unthinkable to wonder whether the winger - out of contract in the summer - was hugely disappointed not to join Caixinha's revolution at Ibrox.
