A few months ago I posted about a friend of mine and his business man pal who were friends with Brendan Rodgers both guys travel a lot and have footballing contacts in England as well as Brendan, I met my mate recently and he gave me this update. Make of it what you will.
My friend said Rodgers told him he went to Leicester with the board's BLESSING, £9m saw to that, it was only the fans who felt let down. Lawwell was well aware of leicester's interest.
On Shved, the Ukrainan winger, Celtic have high hopes for him and Lawwell is hoping it saves club money, as apparently moves were afoot to either extend Butke's loan or maybe make an offer, but Lawwell is hoping Shved can replace Burke next season.
On Bayo, it seems Lennon is not as impressed as Rodgers was, the present coaching staff feel Bayo is way off the pace and needs extra fitness sessions to get him up to speed, so next season is his target. Board are also hoping wee Griffiths is back challenging for a first team place also.
On new signings, apparently Rodgers had given the board names, some Lennon would be happy with, others not so. But Lennon is wanting board to get players in place quickly, even if Lennon is not the manager.
As I say all rumours and speculation let's see what transpires.

The Bhoy Shved looks a real talent. heres hoping he can come over and settle he has a cracking left foot.
Bayo i think was always going to be next season even if Rodgers had stayed. Who would you fancy for the job mate? i seen the AVB rumours id take him in a heartbeat.

Timalloy, there's nothing new in what you said. I think any of us could have reported something similar even without having contacts. HH.

On the new Bhoy Shved, are we looking for him to just replace Burke- or are we looking for him to replace Sinky?

we really do need another LB Cover.
RB replacement.
Another CB and
another striker.
just for starters.

{Ed007's Note - Shved plays on the right, Peter so he can't be replacing Sinclair. Shved signing should put any talk of Paddy Roberts coming back to bed at least - unless Forrest leaves.}

I don't think we need a striker unless one leaves. Eddy, Griffiths and bayo is enough.

Rb and CB has to be priority. Potentially 2cb and cover at lb to unless Miller or the American boy is being seen as good enough for next season.
