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.}

Gutted. We lost this last week in Glasgow, now we've crashed out of Europe to a bang average team. Two ways of looking at it now. We go into the Europa, with teams who are more our level. We can march on. Secondly, we crash totally out of Europe and can concentrate fully on the treble treble.
One thing's for sure, Boyata has to go.


1.) 14 Aug 2018 21:15:25
Treble treble would just show how pish spl is . tonight shows how far behind in Europe we are .

2.) 14 Aug 2018 21:19:10
See this bang average stuff how arrogant have we become.

3.) 14 Aug 2018 21:20:15
Yes, but that's where we are. No getting away from it. Our board are clearly not backing Brendans ambitions. What did you expect though? It's not as if the board are renowned for their generosity.
Getting a bit sick of it.

4.) 14 Aug 2018 21:26:07
AEK are average mate, it’s that simple and we only have ourselves to blame for losing to an average Europa league team

DRB - treble treble is a fun gimmick to have but imo I’d rather see European progress with better players

I’m so disappointed with the start to this year and no idea where we go from here.

5.) 14 Aug 2018 21:26:19
thing is, it wouldn't be so bad if we would react well. Like if we failed and the the board went out and spent to make us better next year then it's no so bad.

but ye know they won't, it will be used as an excuse to sell and go cheap again.

this kind of failure should bring a new era of reinvestment, but instead we will get fed the same old nonsense.

6.) 14 Aug 2018 21:29:04
Patrick, do you not agree that AEK were bang average? They should never have been a threat, if we had all our players available.

7.) 14 Aug 2018 21:36:16
I think bang average are hearts aberdeen hibs but this aek had a better rb 2 better cbs a better keeper a more productive striker better organization and more know how I'd take their 2 cbs.

8.) 14 Aug 2018 21:45:46
People may say AEK are average but what does that make Celtic. Also show what you can do if you have two rock solid CB. There two CB guys in particular the number 4 were superb over the 2 legs. And then u look at us! Christ come back Eric all is forgiven!

9.) 14 Aug 2018 21:48:57
Bullcrap mate, we actually made them look good.

10.) 14 Aug 2018 21:52:18
Even with the players we had out tonight we should have won over 2 legs. BR needs to get more out the squad he also shoulders blame for those performances. All in all not really where we want to be.



08 Aug 2018 16:54:31
Heads up guys, it's chaos in Glasgow just now. There are no trains through both low level Stations and road closures throughout the City due to the cycling. Give yourselves plenty of time to get to the game tonight if going.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 17:05:19
Cheers Rab.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 17:10:58
My advice is don't be lazy and walk to Parkhead. Just do a pub crawl through the Gallowagte.



04 Aug 2018 20:41:44
Result never in doubt for us. Missed the Livi goal due to still sussing out my route North after the games but listening to Open all mikes, it sounded like another Gordon blunder. I really don't like singling players out after a win but thought Johnny Hayes was a wee bit off the pace today. He needs more game time. Was impressed with The Griff, a couple more weeks and he'll be back to his best.
All in all, we absolutely bossed them today and looking forward to Wednesday night, a totally different prospect ahead but I'm confident!


1.) 04 Aug 2018 22:48:43
Ajer switched off, free header into path of the scorer.

I managed to watch the game through vipbox if anyone else in Australia was struggling.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 23:14:23
Really shoulda hammered them today after such a dominant display and 3-1 was a ridiculous reflection of the game.
Got to be happy with the victory and the sharpness in front of goal will hopefully get better as we should really turn all this possession into more goals sooner or later.
AEK will be a tougher opponent and we will probably resume the back four and in my opinion, 'Eddy' is much more effective in a pair and although I don't see it happening, I would like to see him and LG play together and try to gain a big advantage in the home leg.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 00:03:51
It's a bit much criticising a player for something that happens as you are walking to car . It's a good job you don't like criticising a player.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 00:30:26
Read my post Chris, I was mildly criticising Johnny Hayes who I watched with my own eyes before he was subbed. Gordon as far as I am aware as I wasn't in the ground at the time, was to blame for the Livi goal. Not everyone leaves at the final whistle and some reports and info come from third parties.
Nothing wrong with that, is there?

5.) 05 Aug 2018 01:55:07
My bad, wasn't header, it was a volley touch on to scorer.

6.) 05 Aug 2018 07:00:14
I thought Hayes played alright
Especially the first half.
I was thinking wee Griff was slightly off it, he needs his two goals over the line pronto, make his mark in the 100 Club and set him up for the season. He may be 3rd choice when the moose is fit.

7.) 05 Aug 2018 14:49:30
The defence switched off, as simple as that. The game was effectively finished and ref blew the whistle when Celtic kicked off.



26 Jun 2018 11:12:11
As the hype builds about Boyata it's time to ask ourselves a big question. It's very likely paper talk but Boyata is 'Holding all the cards' with regards to his future. Do we cash in on him now and get a decent transfer figure for him or do we push out the boat with regards to a new contract?
I'm very undecided on this. Yes he has had howlers and especially in the big games but all in all, he's a solid Internaionalist who is currently first choice, no matter why, for a very good Belgium side.
Again though, all this hype could go to the boys head. If Lazio are offering him 50k a week, we can't compete with that and that's a fact.


1.) 26 Jun 2018 14:00:18
If he wants to leave then quite simply this could be the best time to cash in. I'd like him to stay though.

2.) 26 Jun 2018 15:49:26
I can say with all honesty that I wouldn’t bat an eyelid if I never seen boyata in a celtic top again! The guy is a bomb scare plain and simple! And nobody will convince me otherwise! Where this hype comes from for this guy I’ll be there know! I’ve read all the boyata holds all the cards and Celtic are struggling to hold on to him pish! Are these people for real! Let him go and let’s finally get a centre half who can actually defend under pressure!

3.) 26 Jun 2018 17:46:29
I'd like him to stay but regardless of whether he does I think now is the time to add a really good centre half to help us push on in Europe.



22 Jun 2018 20:53:19
Armstrong looks like he's off for a hefty fee. Great business by the club. If what they say is true, we've just banked £7m for a squad player. That's Edouard paid for!


1.) 22 Jun 2018 20:57:48
Done well for us, healthy profit and he wants to try something else, good luck to the lad.

Hope we have our usual 10% sell on clause in the deal. so more cash for us.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 21:09:02
7 million in for a squad player 10 out for another squad player . that's great business bigrab😉.

3.) 22 Jun 2018 21:54:44
Not unhappy at that, VVD money covered the Eduoard transfer we usually spend 5 mill close season in the model if we could get the same for Boyata in his last season and recoup our money for Gamboa . We could spend as much as 20 mill close season. Cannot see it myself but it stacks up that way (Y)

4.) 22 Jun 2018 21:55:47
It's a good fee, but it's also about the going rate and to be honest what I would have expected with him having a year left. I've seen worse midfielders signed for a hell of a lot more the past couple of years. Southampton have done a turn or two on our players as well so I doubt they'll see playing in Scotland the same way some clubs might. This should really open the door for us to get another quality signing in.

5.) 22 Jun 2018 22:00:02
Think once he was fit, Armstrong would be more than a squad player, I would have him as an essential part of the midfield, I hope it's only a rumour that he is away, but if it is true, it means Southampton have got a bargain, and another example of Scottish based players being sold on the cheap compared to the prices lesser English players get transferred for.

6.) 22 Jun 2018 22:28:32
What did Armstrong bring last season and what did Eddy bring? The difference is, Eddy sees where he wants to be for the next few years, im not sure Armstrong does. If he wants to go South to a mid table at best mediocre team then so long. No more big European nights, or trophys. He gets exposure in the big EPL, if he's lucky to get off the bench that is.
Good luck to him and I hope it works out. Celtic won't miss him.

7.) 22 Jun 2018 23:01:22
Not going to bad-mouth him as he made a fantastic contribution to the 'Invincible' season and was a potential Celtic great - if he had, had our club at heart, which he clearly hadn't and was looking elsewhere for a wee while now. Good luck to him, now we must progress and improve and concentrate on fully committed players.

8.) 23 Jun 2018 09:46:57
He was a good player for us. I hate all this ge was a squad player crap. It’s disrespectful and doesn’t sit right. Wish the guy well, acknowledge what he contributed and down play it because he wants to try England. Lacks class.

Good luck Stuart, thanks for your contribution son. Okay great and get us another few bob when you get a move to a better team.

9.) 23 Jun 2018 12:05:13
I rate Armstrong as one of the best midfielders I. Britain. If he goes, whatever the fee, I will be gutted.

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!

Daisy Ridley, Martine Mccuteon earlier. You got a thing for dark haired actresses at the moment Ed? 😂🤣
Expect transfer rumour madness over the next couple of weeks when we get linked to every available player under the sun.


{Ed007's Note - It's not at the moment lol I've always had a heavy crush on Martine MCCutcheon, Rab and she smells amazing!!!!!
