talking to one of the workers on nights with me a little while ago and he lives at the gates of Lennoxtown complex. He says that large silver Merc came out back gates tonight just as he was heading to work with driver and he was sure Paddy Roberts in back seat. He said it is very unusual to see anyone come out that late on a Sunday night.

Agree1 Disagree3

14 Aug 2017 00:26:30
No way no that late on a Sunday no chance hope he does but can't c it they mite do something but not for Roberts just now mayb after CL games.

14 Aug 2017 10:04:10
Some reports now say roberts signing depends on qualifying for the group stages.

It's rumbling on a bit is it not?

14 Aug 2017 10:55:45
Its daen ma heed in hope it doesn't bite us in the erse if we wait.

14 Aug 2017 11:05:27
I always thought it would depend on champions league football from city point of veiw.

14 Aug 2017 11:56:42
He's travelled to Spain with city squad for a friendly tomorrow.

14 Aug 2017 23:54:43
seemingly he was in arnold clark on sunday afternoon getting a puncture sorted on his car.

12 Aug 2017 23:30:00
Rumour is Danny Ings is striker Celtic are looking at.

Agree4 Disagree4

13 Aug 2017 09:20:06
We already have 2 injury prone strikers. No chance will we add a third.

13 Aug 2017 11:05:26
couldnt afford his wages, plus he won't come to play 2nd or 3rd choice.

13 Aug 2017 11:15:57
That wis 4 year ago, think Liverpool are going to give him a shot this season.

13 Aug 2017 12:37:41
rumours picking up tonight tomtam, 6 month loan.

13 Aug 2017 13:52:27
Who's that?

13 Aug 2017 14:25:14
It must be getting to that part of the window where the rumours are rife because I over herd 2 guys in front of me on the flight back from alicante talking that we wanted someone called coulibally from gent, never heard of him before anyone who could shine a light on this would be welcome.

13 Aug 2017 17:10:51
He is a striker with Ghent, there was a player with same name who scored from 40 yards against de vries, he played for Kilmarnock.

13 Aug 2017 17:13:40
AG, a think he was the killie player they had scored a peach against us and they sold him on for a million, he had his contract ripped up I think.

13 Aug 2017 17:17:16
Are we actually in for him tho? And is any good?

13 Aug 2017 17:41:43
Different player, same second name.

13 Aug 2017 19:47:24
Had a google at him, names kalifa coulibally. Looks a big lad and strong as a horse. Hope there's something in it could be doing with someone like him.

14 Aug 2017 23:50:23
Bookies have priced Paddy to Celtic at 1/5. that's it jinxed now haha.

12 Aug 2017 18:52:26
Just been hearing that paddy Roberts wants to move back up here but man city want him to go to Southampton on loan to test himself, makes me wonder weather we might get him on a permanent deal if city decide to just offload him if he won't listen to there advice.

Agree3 Disagree1

12 Aug 2017 22:22:03
No chance cowabunga he will listen to them the wee man wants to try and make it at City so me thinks he will listen to them if not I will apologies if Roberts7 sighs hh.

12 Aug 2017 20:01:52
We are being linked with a 20 year old defender from Ajax Cape Town, South Africa. Ricardo Coetzee, boy has 16 full caps for South Africa and 90 club appearances in the top devision of SA football.

Agree2 Disagree2

12 Aug 2017 21:07:45
Unknown not the answer.

12 Aug 2017 21:51:35
Victor wanyama - nobody heard o him

Van dijk - "

If this guy IS who we r going for let's trust BR knows wit he's doin. am all for finding these hidden gems (well maybe) but we kani expect in our league to attract top class defenders to come in with a high wage bill and cut it by 75% . on another note C'mon Tha fekn HOOPS! and HIBEEES 😂




12 Aug 2017 22:23:17
This young lad is highly thought off.

I would be very happy if we brought him in.

12 Aug 2017 22:53:18
Leader, remember Lubo.

13 Aug 2017 10:19:49
Kevt . Ajer is highly thought of and is already here . id rather we brought in an experienced guy .

12 Aug 2017 19:33:34
The Boss Brendan stated that Celtic would do there proper business late in the transfer window as he knows how the English market works. So would everyone calm down let our manager do what he said from the start he was going to do. Honestly some celtic fans on here sound like the tribute act fans. We are Celtic and Brendan will not let us down.

Agree5 Disagree0

12 Aug 2017 20:54:03
I didn't catch BR saying that dth, but hopefully he's right and we will do some business towards end of the market.
I do remember him saying we would be stronger by the time the qualifiers come round, which I'm unsure if we are, but suppose the injurys haven't helped with that.
I just hope we can get past Astana or it won't be looking good for anymore signings. HH.

12 Aug 2017 21:12:18
How will he not let us down mate. We are weaker full sto. We have two strikers injured two centre backs who aren't good enough for European group stages injured. Let's be honest. He left it too late, what players and where mate., the EPL prices and mArket are stupid. Push players are costing silly money. Where's Roberts, if he doesn't come, what then hated.

12 Aug 2017 21:37:57
I wouldn't say we're weaker, just unlucky with injuries. What decent striker is going to come to Parkhead knowing full well we play 1 striker upfront and when Dembele and Griffiths are fit he might end up playing third fiddle. If we rush out and sign a centre back now all that it's going to result in Is us being totally overloaded in defence when everyone's fit. I agree that our centre backs aren't off group stage quality but we may need to shift more players on before signing more. No point signing players just for the sake of it and bloating both the squad and the wage bill. On a more positive note I've been impressed with Ntcham since he's signed.

12 Aug 2017 21:38:58

That logic will make plenty of sense if we crash out of the Champions League and we don't have the proper funds available or the attraction of the CL for the players we want to sign.

Also let's deal in facts for once. after we qualified for the Champions League last season we signed 1 player. That one player was Christian Gamboa. In my eyes our third choice right back. So do you think we did well last season after the EPL teams had settled their squads?

12 Aug 2017 18:28:03
Any news on kouassi? Thought he was having a scan a few days ago?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Aug 2017 23:45:02
Sure Kennedy said find out beginning of week after specialist sees the scans.

11 Aug 2017 18:39:29

Wrapping LG in cotton wool for Astana.

12 Aug 2017 07:44:26
Out of the blue the day Celtic have been linked with a CH a striker and still waiting on PR news wtf is going well n I think someone is desperate to hang on to their jobs at the news papers haha.

11 Aug 2017 17:23:40
Reason for the delay with Paddy is the club is trying for a permanent deal rather than a loan.

Agree1 Disagree4

11 Aug 2017 17:37:59
Which club, us or city?

A permanent deal would be good news.

11 Aug 2017 18:38:34
Anybody know any real news regarding paddy, just seen on sky transfer centre he's rated at 4.8 of a possible 5 to sign for us, whatever that means.

11 Aug 2017 19:28:22
Guys I posted a couple of weeks back, Paddy will sign for Celtic before the season ends for 8 million. I stand by that.

11 Aug 2017 23:40:46
Augustus he was 4.3 to sign for Southampton a couple of weeks ago as well. Take no notice of Sly, listen to the Eds and the other guys on here.

10 Aug 2017 14:39:04
Shaun Maloney back at Paradise as Under 20s development coach.

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Aug 2017 14:58:14
Welcome home wee man.

{Ed007's Note - That's Roy Aitken yesterday and Maloney today back where they belong.}

10 Aug 2017 17:25:17
both of them left for money too.

10 Aug 2017 17:21:28
Aye could it be PR the morra to make it a triple? Not holding out much hope now think Man City have long term plans and PR will be helped by them seeing how he fair in the EPL next only my gutt feeling.

10 Aug 2017 17:02:27
Great stuff Could you ever see RD returning Ed? Was told by someone in the know that Rodgers really rates him and thought a lot of the work he done set good foundations for him and that the sports science stuff was first class.

{Ed007's Note - Rodgers has been full of praise for the foundations RD put down behind the scenes and he was surprised the sports science department was as advanced as it was. Even though I'd love us to hire him in some capacity I just can't see it. It would need to be replacing someone like McCart as Head of Youth Development and I can't see him going anywhere soon.}

10 Aug 2017 18:48:17
Hi ED I really hope the PR signing come through but if it doesn't do u think they will try anybody else?

{Ed007's Note - Not specifically for the RW position, Rich, no. If the Roberts deal doesn't come off I think we'll look at other attacking players who can cover playing as a striker if needed, that's what Rodgers has said he's looking for rather than a 3rd choice striker.}

10 Aug 2017 20:16:50
By the sound of big Kennedy we shouldn't get our hopes up of anythin happening soon with paddy! ED I really hope we don't hang about til the last days of the window and get left with hee haw! Surely we're looking at other attacking options rite now mate? I'm like everyone else and would love to get paddy back in, but what an anticlimax it would be if we missed out on him and didn't get anyone else! Still plenty of time in the window left of course but it wouldn't be the first time we've arsed about with these things!

10 Aug 2017 20:00:52
Well fingers and toes crossed ED what does your gut tell u ED?

{Ed007's Note - I'm pretty confident that something will get done with Roberts.}

10 Aug 2017 20:01:25
Does my nut in when people slag delia off bhoys a hero in my eyes and will always be a big part of our history Esp when we hit 10 HH.

10 Aug 2017 20:38:58
What are maloneys credentials as far as coaching goes?

10 Aug 2017 21:26:59
Well he's not Marcello Bielsa or 62 years old but i'd say he's very worthy of coaching our youngsters.

10 Aug 2017 21:34:20
Some people are negative . I am sure B R took into consideration S M coaching credentials when deciding he was man for job . I trust B R decision making .

I remember you sneered at me for suggesting C P pitch needed a couple of more weeks to bed down . Appears it is now well nigh perfect, but sure u would only complain about it.

10 Aug 2017 23:19:05
I remember my last rubbish Chris. what's your point caller?

11 Aug 2017 06:15:02
Cheers Ed I'm of same opinion Welsbhoy.

11 Aug 2017 11:01:12
Spot on wels bud.

11 Aug 2017 11:32:46
Wels I don't always agree with you but your spot on there.
Ronny laid a lot of the foundations for what Rogers has built in my eyes.

11 Aug 2017 11:58:57
Well said Welshboy RD did not have the stature (Or experience maybe? ) to fully implement his ideas, but I firmly believe the steps he took has assisted Rodgers in his task. On top of which he won two title to keep us on track for the 10 in a row and almost won a treble in his first season. He was not everyone's cup of tea but his place in history is there for me.
I would like to see some form of link up with Ronnie, I thought he was intelligent and forward thinking.

Did Kris commons every play under BR?

11 Aug 2017 12:32:33
How can you not always agree with me kev ma wife says I'm always right haha.

11 Aug 2017 12:33:27
Nice to see some sensible posters acknowledging the work and foundations laid by RD. Rodger's will have found it a heck of a lot easier taking over from RD. Said when RD was here, that the more I warmed to what he was doing, the more I seen him as a key figure in the background and perhaps not a manager (the fact he wasn't really given the chance to be a proper manager is something else) but more to do with youth development. I hope we've kept his number.

11 Aug 2017 15:13:57
Am the only one out of ma mates that says anything good about deals, am grateful for the job he done. A hope he comes back one day. Maybe as manager if he has some more success but ad love him to be in the backroom staff the now.

11 Aug 2017 17:15:32
welshy he was a boring fanny who's tactics put us to sleep.

11 Aug 2017 22:44:19
James u know I love u pal but leav Ronnie alone it won't end well 😏.

12 Aug 2017 15:23:13
he was a tit, worse than macari and mowbray.

09 Aug 2017 18:57:44
Has there been any update on wee Shaun joining as a coach and with him being offered the job does that mean that big Kolo won't be joining?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Aug 2017 11:14:41
I read Kolo was talking with the Ivory Coast about being invilved with the national set up.
