Folks here s some news for you s!

the board are not willen to spend over 1.5 millon on a player this month, we are tryen for loan deals which may or may not happen.

as for the players mentioned

robbie keane- hasnt played 90 mins in a first team since he left celtic, well worth 65 000 NOT!
conner sammon- 1 good season in his full footballen career, o a must for celtic again NOT!
eremenko- a good player in a bad killie side this is a fact folks.
shay given- an old man no where near as good as hart or boruc fact.
richard dunne- decent centre back but should be wear en a balaclaver instead of fitba boots as he s robben wages from villa skill doesn't match weekly wage.
stephen irleand- couldny get a game for hibs the noo so rusty why would we even want this guy.

so all in all fellow fans lets hope lawell choices better than this lot, and afore its stated lenny runs the team that he may but lawell runs the purse so he choices our players FACT

I wish we would actually sign a bloody striker, hopefully vaughan will do a job for us, but we have to get some players out the door surely? anyone got any news on juarez? is there any truth in the ljungberg falling out with directors? i hope loovens goes, samaras scored two against the filth but that's about all he's done to be honest, can we not free up the wages and get surplus players out the door and BUY a striker, a cb and another goalie? not sure if forster is the man to replace the hoalie goalie.

Meanwhile, the agent for French striker Garra Dembele has told BBC Scotland that Celtic have tabled an offer for the 24-year-old.

Dembele has scored 27 goals for Bulgarian side Levski Sofia this season.

"I can confirm Celtic made an offer for Garra and he is very interested, " said Christian Emille.

"There has also been interest from top clubs in England too. At the moment Levski are weighing up all options but the player himself would prefer a move to a club in the UK."

"This is from the club website. . . . . . OLIVIER Kapo has left Celtic Football Club after a short spell with the club. The French internationalist made two appearances for the Hoops.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon said today: These are the facts. Olivier Kapo signed a contract with the club which allowed us to terminate on January 10, 2011.

Celtic took this option to terminate as we felt he had not done enough to justify a longer-term contract.

We were willing to look at an extension to this short term contract with Olivier. However, he was not willing to accept these terms.

Clearly, everyone at the club wishes Olivier well for the future."

WOW. GOOD BUSINESS JUDGEMENT FROM CELTIC
WHEN THEY OFFERED THE CONTRACT, AS WE DON'T GET LANDED WITH A PLAYER WHO ISN'T WHAT WE WANT.

HOPEFULLY THIS IS A SIGNAL THAT WE DO INTEND ON SIGNING A STRIKER, AS GETTING KAPO OF THE WAGE BILL WILL HELP IN WHAT WE CAN OFFER.

Celtic midfielder Olivier Kapo is quitting Parkhead after less than three months at the club. The Frenchman, speaking on his official blog, has claimed Celtic have made unacceptable changes to the contract offer that was discussed when he signed for the Hoops in November.

The player announced his intentions on his official blog but as yet there has been no confirmation from Celtic. Kapo said that his decision had not been taken lightly but that decisions taken at a high level at Parkhead had forced him to leave.

In the open letter on the blog, the player says he did not require payment for his initial "probationary" period as he was keen to prove his worth and earn the one and a half year deal that would take effect in January.

Kapo now claims that senior management at Celtic changed the terms of that contract, informing him that they were only prepared to offer one third of the wages he says had been agreed. The winger says that Neil Lennon and his coaching staff wanted to keep him at the club but that he was leaving as a result of the financial changes.

I wanted to inform you of my decision to leave Celtic Football Club, Kapo announced on his website.

This is not an impulse or a whim. That is why today I feel the need to explain why, in the interests of transparency.

"On November 4, 2010, I signed a contract which binded me to the club until 2012 with a probationary period of three months. During that time, I required no pay. My sole concern was to recover the pleasure of playing.

"A moral committment was then made by the football management of the club that my trial period would be converted, as expected, into a contract of 18 months. I began looking for an apartment for my family and a school for my children. My future was with Celtic.

"On January 11, there was a twist. The executive management called me and said my contract would be changed. My salary would be divided by three and would now expire on June 30, 2011.

"The position of the club was a 'lack of experience', because four games had been postponed due to the weather and I had been out injured with a thigh injury in late December, from which I have now fully recovered.

"I still do not understand this sudden change of situation. I feel a deep injustice, even though the coaching staff wanted me to stay.

"Despite the insistence of Neil Lennon, I did not want to stay longer in a situation where a young coach, who was an experienced player, is not able to impose his choices on the financial management.

"I wish to thank all staff at the club, the fans and my team-mates for their warm welcome support during my three months. I extend my best wishes for their success."

The left winger was a free agent when he agreed to join Celtic late last year, having been released by Wigan Athletic in the summer. The deal that Kapo signed was unusual, running until June 2012 but with a "get-out clause" that allowed Celtic to terminate the contract in January 2011 if they were not satisfied with Kapo's fitness and contribution.

Kapo made two appearances during his time in the SPL, playing 13 minutes against St Johnstone and 38 minutes against Motherwell in December.

Celtic told STV on Tuesday afternoon they were aware of Kapo's blog post but are yet to make commentsource STV
