Just posted a photo of the new kit in the sightings page that was supposedly leaked online. Ifit is, its a belter!




24 Apr 2017 20:16:00
50th anniversary home kit to be unveiled at CP on the 4th of May. Here Celtic, take my credit card details now!


1.) 24 Apr 2017 23:19:28
Im expecting a cracker of a jersey this time around. Better not be a let down. Still get it anyways😊.

2.) 24 Apr 2017 23:54:34
Anythin leaked yet online?

3.) 25 Apr 2017 09:24:20
Not a thing, they are keeping this one pretty shtum. wouldn't surprise me if it was of similar style to the Lions kit.

4.) 25 Apr 2017 13:58:45
Hopefully plenty of hoops in the design.

5.) 25 Apr 2017 19:33:13
ok lads this is the sellik offishul site so jist pit aw yur details doon here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
bank cairds expiry dates etc etc.

6.) 26 Apr 2017 13:44:10
Leaked now online and it does look a belter.

{Ed007's Note - This?


Apart from it looking like something you'd get at a market stall in Turkey, JP Taylor has confirmed that it's not real.}

7.) 26 Apr 2017 15:45:46
I'd like something along those lines but that does look to cheap and nasty to be the real deal. Haven't bought a top for quite a while but might just invest if the new one's smart.

8.) 26 Apr 2017 17:40:01
I was hoping for a gold badge.

9.) 26 Apr 2017 20:01:48
I think a white badge and nb logo on the white hoop would help make it look as close to the lions kit as possible, plain and beautiful, as it should be.

10.) 27 Apr 2017 18:20:50
That's the one Ed, I like it, Agree with others be nice with a gold badge an NB.

11.) 28 Apr 2017 20:37:23
Heard that it will have a gold lion badge on the back at the neck with 25/ 5/ 67 and a something round the badge

Also that there maybe a player only top for the final as it is being played 27/ 5 closest match to the date similar to what Man Utd wore to commemorate the busby babes

It's rumours so take what you will from that.

12.) 28 Apr 2017 20:43:44
Attached image of the badge only 50 years rather than 40 and one fir the back below the neck

Ed how to I add pics.

{Ed007's Note - Go onto the sightings page and you can send pics in.}

As far as I was concerned, that was a great win for us yesterday. That dump is a difficult place to get points, especially when their players bust a gut to keep up with us. Yet again though, very poor refereeing was evident throughout the match. I don't think Collum is biased, I just think he is utterly out his depth as a referee. Clueless man!

It was a great advert for our Premiership, but this league will never go anywhere with Doncaster and his cronies in charge. They couldn't sell water in the desert.
Feeling a lot more confident for Saturday.

To our hard working Editor and all our posters, readers and lurkers, have a very happy Christmas from BigRab and family. All the best for Boxing day and the 29th! And of course, 2019, our 8th title In a row!


{Ed007's Note - Merry Christmas to you and your family, Rab.}

Merry Xmas to you all and your kin. 🍀.

I went to see my wee Grandson on his first birthday today and recorded the game. Spent a nervy drive home trying to avoid any human contact and have now just finished watching my hero's lift another league cup trophy to keep us on the road for the treble treble!
Any criticism about individual performances are for tomorrow. Today, we are league cup winners again!
Well done Celtic, well deserved!


1.) 02 Dec 2018 20:33:36
Happy first birthday Wee Big Rab! 👍.



15 Nov 2018 10:18:38
Just seen an online poll regarding a new deal for Mikel Lustig. 3000 people polled and a 65% swing towards not renewing his contract. It's obviously a difficult one for the supporters. Lustig has given us the best years of his career and has been a great servant to the club. Unfortunately though, I've got to agree with the poll. Lustig will be on a very decent wage and any new deal will take that into account. This is money that could be freed up for a new player/ players. Lustig is looking slow in games and was seriously lacking in the later stages of the Liepzig game.
Celtic is a football club and we need to be ambitious in who we contract to play for us and there is no room for sentiment.
Harsh, I know but Lustig over the last few months has shown me that his time is up.


{Ed007's Note - What about Scott Brown? It was only a couple of seasons ago people were saying he was garbage, injury prone etc well now we've seen we can play without him - some even say we're better without him and that he slows our play down - he's spent a lot of time injured as well so should we offer him an extension or save the wages of the top earner at the Club?
Remember there's no place for sentiment.}

1.) 15 Nov 2018 10:52:58
Didn't want to get into the Scott Brown debate but your correct Ed, that also has to be looked at. You can't have a rule for one and not the other. Before he was injured, Scotty was a rock in defence but since he's been sidelined the team looks to have improved a great deal. This could be put down to the completely different way we play without him.
This is about Lustig though, and in my opinion, he gets shown up far too often and struggles to keep up with play. Sorry, but for me, he should be moved on.

2.) 15 Nov 2018 11:26:29
I don't believe that it's down to brown being out we are so much quicker.
It's just that a lot of players have hit their form at the same time.
Both brown and lustig would get contracts from me but lustig would be heading towards being the back up for both RB and CB.
Both players bring so much more than just what they do on the park and I think fans forget that sometimes.

3.) 15 Nov 2018 12:54:21
I would give lustig a new deal. Probably 12 months with option to extend for 12 months. I know lots of people are saying he is finished but I'm wondering does he just need a rest? He has played in WC and a ridiculous number of games in 2 years.

4.) 15 Nov 2018 17:55:55
Celtic is a football club and there’s no room for sentiment? There was me thinking we were born of famine and oppression and a club like no other with other motives than pure profit and pound notes. I hope Lustig doesn’t read the banter page and neither does KT or he will see the thoughts of 65% of supporters when it comes to loyalty.

5.) 15 Nov 2018 19:45:41
I’m one of those ed but that’s a moment thing at the moment we’re playing better without him bhoys who have the shirt deserve to keep it. That said broony is a class act as far as I’m concerned but that doesn’t mean he had to play there’s no way with such a young team that we could do without his influence even if it’s just in the dressing room but knowing we can call on him that’s a great plus. Lustig new contract def for me the bhoy has earned it no room for sentiment? Sorry but I disagree I do agree we need another rb but Lustig like Izzy are great back ups.

{Ed007's Note - I'd definitely be giving Lustig an extension too, he brings a lot to the squad and the youngsters all look up to him as a senior member of the squad.}

6.) 15 Nov 2018 19:46:42
Ed, I personally believe that Scott Brown is past his best and will be off to Australia, in the belief that it for the best interests of family, in my opinion I would do anything to gain the opportunity to move over there but unfortunately my wife disagrees.

{Ed007's Note - Don't take her then.}

7.) 15 Nov 2018 20:38:12
Ed 😂👍.

{Ed007's Note - 😋

8.) 15 Nov 2018 21:11:04
Broonys here for ten and rightly so enjoy the performances for now but we’re going to need him 🍀.

9.) 15 Nov 2018 21:35:45
Brown past it? Lustig out the door? I seem to remember quite recently that Ryan Christie was ‘not good enough’. Thankfully, we’ve got people running the club who actually know what they’re doing and they make the decisions about who we offer contracts to.

10.) 15 Nov 2018 21:46:04
Bang on coybig as I said above it’s about the moment and at the moment these bhoys are doing well. Sunday v Livi we actually missed broony hard away games when someone needs to step up it’s usualky him.



09 Nov 2018 19:35:12
Can't say much more about last night's performance than has already been said on here. We were immense. My personal view though is on the attitude young Ryan Christie has shown over the last couple of years. He must have had serious doubt hanging over him about if he was going to stay with us and how he was going to break through into our squad. He went out to the Dons and played brilliantly for them. It pains me to say but we actually owe Aberdeen a bit of gratitude for how they let Christie play for them.
He came back to us this Season and after a shakey start, has shown he is as good as anyone in his current role. He is a role model for young players who might be lagging a bit at their clubs to just get the head down and do their absolute best. As long as Ryan shows this form, he's a guaranteed starter.


1.) 09 Nov 2018 22:31:06
Great post Rab. Completely agree. I’ve always been a Christie fan but must admit myself I thought he may have been moved on in the summer as I could not see where he would fit into our team. But Bhoy has he grabbed his opportunity. His work rate, effort and ability are outstanding. I believe we have a gem on our hands.

2.) 09 Nov 2018 23:09:36
Well put, Rab. The start of the season there we had some banter about whether lads like christie would get there chance or be able to take it. Just shows you. He made himself the chance, bided his time, and took it. No looking back now. I hope Morgan will take heed and fancy him for the same sort of impact when the time is right.

Depends where he goes. It's not Kilmarnock is it?

Hi Arrowh, just like to say all the best and good luck with your fight against that bastard disease. It destroys lives but there are always good news stories nowadays regarding Cancer. It's not the sentence it used to be. Keep the faith bud, you can get through this again.

This is the norm for a semi final with a club who cannot take their full allocation. Murderwell couldn't fill a bath never mind half of Hampden. What will be interesting to see though is what the cash split will be.

C'mon Ed, it must have happened! The USA told us it did so it must have. Some of the conspiracy theories are funny though. My favourite being the stars and stripes flag planted 'fluttered' on a moon with no weather. They said it was caused by someone opening a door in the studio!
And Beardy, I thought we matched City quite well in both ties.


{Ed007's Note - Kubrick would never have let a schoolboy error like that slide on any of his sets let alone one as important as pulling the wool over the world's eyes. ;)

It's looking more like this lad is being motivated by money. What are West Brom, Bournemouth or Burnley ever going to do apart from get humped by teams week in, week out? He has a chance to be a star for a team that wins things. If he has any doubts, we should make his mind up for him and cash in. There are plenty more decent midfielders out there who would crawl through broken glass to play in the hoops. Sign up or get lost son!

No way we should even be entertaining this. Yaya was a brilliant footballer but he's a midfielder and he's 35. He might look after himself but there's no way he would keep up the pace in our league. He would end up as a very expensive sub.
Its a big no from me.

Its all If's and buts. What if we didn't have such a bad start to the season? What if they won their games they dropped points in and were now way ahead of us in the league? What if Hearts were still unbeaten? It's all irrelevant. We currently head the league on goal difference, we're still in Europe, the treble treble is still on, in fact the quadruple is still on this year if you are super confident! We go into the New Year top of the league. All the fairy stories from the MSM can't deny us our place. I haven't looked at a rag today but I know exactly the gist of what they are writing about.

We got beat fair and square and it had to happen some time. They were the hungrier side. We retreat, lick our wounds and come back stronger in January. Maybe add a few new faces but let's face it, if our current squad were up for it, we wouldn't need anybody else. We have a squad more than capable of horsing this league.

Sevco and the rest of them can pretend they are title challengers but the old cliche says leagues are won over a season. We will all drop points in the run in but we should be good enough to stroll it.

Welshy, we've got to take from that game what it was. Take off any tinted shades, they deserved that win. They bullied and harassed us for 90+ minutes, were first to almost every ball and pretty much stamped their authority on it. We were poor and didn't turn up. I'm not even going to start singling out individual performances.
We have had the warning signs for months now. We are not the team we were and other, lesser sides are sussing us out.
Time for a refresh in the next month. They won today but they were far from great, more we were garbage. It's our league to win and the only team that will stop us is Celtic.
Poor display today. It's got to be onwards and upwards from here.
