Kris Commons to Hibs before midnight is doing the rounds again. HH.

Good Luck to him, personally I would keep him, just to kill the Steve Gerard rumors, and save the salary difference we would be paying.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 19:00:21
We could reasonably expect to deals to be done, but unfortunately managers of clubs who have players to sell, can move the goal posts, or have them moved by the agents, Things are moving and continuously change in the football players trading.

I see Charlie Mulgrew is away to Blackburn for a medical today. Good luck big lad, you gave us all you had when you here even though you were sometimes shite. HH.

Good riddance after leaving us a man down going off in a big cream puff in last Europe game.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 11:53:44
That is some epitaph for big Chas Celtic career.

Ever thought of speech writing for Donald trump?

3.) 31 Aug 2016 12:11:58
apologies island celt. i don't think i'm being too hard on him. He did give everything he had. He tried his best unlike some other players and he deserves credit for that. But he had some awful performances too and I think a lot of fans wanted him out. I honestly wish him well, he is a good guy. HH.

4.) 31 Aug 2016 14:00:58
I'm only teasing Bob, you called it right, good servant, some good memories, some not so great.

Good luck to the big man.

The missus has just told me she overheard 2 guys in the local shop talking. They said we're swapping Efe plus £1m for Ulloa at Leicester. She said they really sounded like they knew what they were talking about! HH.

Classic Bob, let deadline day begin with a bang lol.

Ed, you might know something, now that Everton have got Schneiderlin does it mean we're likely to go for McCarthy? HH


{Ed007's Note - We've already went for McCarthy but now Schneiderlin has signed I expect we'll find out one way or another soon enough if we've been successful.}



02 Jan 2017 18:44:50
Not that it really matters to us but I see Tony Watt's attitude is being questioned yet again. Between him and Feruz we had 2 potentially outstanding players who couldn't get their heads out of their own arses and have taken exactly the same attitude with every club they've gone to since leaving. Shame really but hey ho there you go. HH.


1.) 02 Jan 2017 19:15:00
When we talk about why there are no great talent coming thro in Scotland and we blame the coaches, playstation era, weather, facilities etc we only have to look at these 2.
This is the main reason.



01 Jan 2017 00:56:29
Nice touch from Griff when he tied a Celtic scarf to the Sevco goalpsot lol HH.




18 Dec 2016 20:42:54
Is it just me that thinks that even though we're grinding out results over the last couple of games, we're a wee bit off the boil from where we were a short time ago? Yes the points are what matter at the end of the day but we had been treated to some rather special football on the home front for quite a while and it appears to have slipped a bit.
I'm not complaining, the bhoys are giving everything. HH.


1.) 18 Dec 2016 21:31:26
At the moment we are playing a lot of matches in quick succession, which means we have to make a few changes for each game which in turn affects the continuity of our play.
It looks to me as if the powers that be are determined to have every club having played the same number of games before the break in January, I can't for the life of me see why this matters, there are only 13 days of the year left, yet in that time we have to play 4 matches, we can't realistically play our strongest team in all these games, so performances are bound to suffer.
I don't know who this mid season break is supposed to benefit, but it's certainly not us supporters, who because of it, have to watch weaker teams being put out, as usual fans are the last people that are considered in these things.

2.) 18 Dec 2016 22:47:33
I am both delighted and grateful that we have remained unbeaten - and have won so many games on the trot.
Between the demanding and draining CL schedule and the log-jam of December fixtures, I am absolutely convinced we would have struggled for such consistency in previous seasons with other managers.
Enormous credit must go to the manager and players and although we have faded a little in recent games, the points keep mounting up, while rivals are kept at a distance.
The team changes will affect consistency to a certain degree, but we are still creating plenty chances and just need to persevere until our injured players return and the players who are out of sorts, get back to top form.
I also think that the other sides in the league are so inconsistent, they will probably drop a lot more points along the way and if we can get back to keeping clean sheets, we will even increase our lead.
Not getting complacent, but this is the most confident I have felt about a Celtic side for many years.

3.) 18 Dec 2016 22:54:27
I think our dip in performance is down to big players missing in recent weeks. Tierney Sinclair and Forrest and brown suspended has hindered consistency in selection and as a result performance. Hopefully they will be back on the boil soon.

4.) 18 Dec 2016 23:57:15
Think its probably an effect of going out of europe, sort of a deflationary affect, like a hang over it will wear off, hope Brendanccomes to realise that LG and Dembelle have to play in the same team, only by playing consistently they will grow into a tremendous cpmbination, this will tell what dort of manager Brendan really id.

5.) 18 Dec 2016 22:49:00
We have played 12 to 20 more games than most teams aswell with European and cup games. I still think we are playing good we are just losing concentration at certain points in games usually towards the end. there hasn't been a game we weren't the better team but over all I am enjoying our team and performances.

6.) 19 Dec 2016 07:23:36
Don't think Brendan will play both strikers.

7.) 19 Dec 2016 13:34:14
Why do the HAVE to play in the same team?
If you change to 2 upfront we need to lose something from midfield or defence.
We are winning games and scoring a fair amount of goals in this system.
To change it unnecessary would be daft in my opinion.

8.) 19 Dec 2016 21:44:32
Celtic are looking soft centred and heavy legged in the central defence area, and the point about concentration has already been well made

Tomorrow night will be interesting as Patrick looked a handful against hearts ( albeit an uncertain unsure hearts ) !



14 Dec 2016 07:14:17
Is anyone else peed off with all this talk about us going the whole season unbeaten? We're good enough to do it but surely it's just giving the haters something to gloat about if and when we do slip up and have an off day. It'll probably happen somewhere. HH.


1.) 14 Dec 2016 08:08:17
think i'm in the minority bob but honestly don't care if we do it or not.

2.) 14 Dec 2016 09:18:09
These kinda 'records' end up putting pressure and stress onto players and supporters, where relatively easy games become more and more difficult if we don't get that early goal, or have a setback or two and its counter productive.
It's much more important to play well, enjoy ourselves and see what we have achieved at the end of the season.
We are in tremendous shape, with the best players in Scotland - playing the best football for tears - and a tremendous points advantage in the league, with another cup to play for and that is good enough for me.

3.) 14 Dec 2016 12:16:27
It speaks volumes that us losing a game in Scotland would give others something to cheer about. We're capable, it would be fantastic, but there's a long way to go and not doing it would be so far from a disaster that I don't think it should be drummed up either.

4.) 14 Dec 2016 15:43:48
I would normally agree, but in this case with games being played mainly in second gear it can also act as a bit of a motivator as well as just putting needless pressure on players. I do agree though that although a lot of us may be quietly thinking it we shouldn't have people talking about it in papers ect.

5.) 14 Dec 2016 16:09:07
I'm in the don't care camp. Was thinking about this a couple of weeks back, with the likely gap (chasm? ) between us and second by the start of the year, I wouldn't be overly annoyed if we dropped points experimenting with systems and fringe players. Wrapping up the title and bedding in new signings/ developing systems that will put is in good stead for Europe next year are far bigger priorities than a treble or an undefeated season.

6.) 14 Dec 2016 16:51:41
Would be a great achievement no doubt about that. I'd be more impressed with the treble tho that has to be the main target for me.

7.) 14 Dec 2016 20:46:17
Lennon got dog's abuse in certain forums, for trying to remain unbeaten until end of season . I always want Celtic to win and am very bad company when we lose domestically, so I would want the unbeaten season and more.

8.) 14 Dec 2016 23:13:13
I absolutely hate that talk.

Its all faux hype by the Meejits
(media eejits - TM Digibanger Inc. )

Its like a mic appears and they say, will you win the Treble, Quadruple - then the same feckin mic appears after we loose 1-0 away to eg Inverness on a wet Tuesday in the cup immediately after a Friday night in Aberdeen in the league with a win.

They always ask all teams this tho - its just the usual pish.
Good writers write books,
okay writers write in the papers,
mmmheh writers write blogs (sorry eds)
shite writers write posts like this
and then there is Scottish sports writers.
what's lower than shite?
Why did Traynor suddenly jump into my mind!

9.) 14 Dec 2016 18:44:48
It would be great to do it, but any team to go unbeaten is extremely unlikely.
And in a mangers first term, unrealistic for me.

Enjoy each game, some great football being played.

10.) 15 Dec 2016 17:27:54
Treble for me any day.

Have to be honest tho if it gets to the 30 odd games and still unbeaten it would be nice to go for but not a priority.


11.) 15 Dec 2016 21:55:04
If we get to 30 domestic games unbeaten the league will be virtually won . Should
B R try for an unbeaten season or should he rest up stars to prepare for short summer break due to E Champions league qualifiers . Thus given squad members decent opportunity to show their ability .

Guys, just by repeating these unsubstantiated rumours you're all adding fuel to the fire. Until BR and CFC make it clear otherwise then neither Griff nor Moussa are going anywhere. Can't we just leave it like that instead of listening to every feckin granny and her dog? HH.

In any sport or any profession there are many qualities needed to perform at a top level. Ability, fitness, diet etc. are all very important and success probably won't come without them but the single biggest quality needed is attitude. If someone has the right attitude, no matter what they do for a living, then they won't need to have the other stuff forced upon them. They'll know they have to do it in order to achieve individual excellence and the right attitude will make them want to do them anyway. HH.

I've been to Liege. It is a soulless shithole. There is NOTHING nice about it. I'd love to see Efe gone but even I can't disagree with his decision if it's true. HH.

I'll always settle for a 1-0 victory, no matter who we're playing. I don't like speculating about winning 2-0, 5-0, 10-2 or whatever when the priority is always to win even if it is by the narrowest margin. Anything more than that is a bonus. HH.

Tax avoidance is not a crime Cee, unlike tax evasion and tax fraud. For a detailed explanation OF 'EVASION' and 'FRAUD' please refer to Rangers before they went belly up, their actions will give excellent examples. lol HH.


{Ed007's Note - Celtic have no control over what their employees do with their money. This straw clutching by supporters of Scotland's newest club is the equivalent of accusing your son's employer of being a drug dealer because your son bought a bag of weed with his wages.
Celtic's payments of income tax, national insurance and VAT are full and completely up to date and so this regurgitated story (it's old news and has been reported numerous times before) has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Celtic Football Club.
The interesting thing is WHY has the Record ran with this story again, Oh look - a squirrel....
BTW, I've got a list of Oldco Rangers players and staff that were involved in these film schemes AND received EBTs, including Sir Walter of Particularly, Craig Moore, Barry Ferguson etc. Wee Barry is in serious financial trouble after getting his tax bill and HMRC refusing to cut him a deal because he admitted he tried to hide income from them. And that's without taking his EBT into consideration.}

I think the club were to blame for Ronny's ultimate failure because he should never have been there in the first place. Of course he was going to accept the challenge of managing Celtic, what manager from a lower quality of football wouldn't? He gave it his best shot but the fact is his best shot was never going to be enough. And that was the club's fault for taking the cheap option and appointing him. I'm sure he is a very nice guy. HH.
