Any truth in the rumour that if Moussa goes we'll try to bring in Dani Gomez from Real Madrid?


1.) 16 May 2017 20:03:13
It was inevitable that Dembele would be sold but if it's this Summer then for me it's another slap in the face for fans. Talks of how we don't need to sell out best players clearly is a load of shite.

To sell your top striker with champs league coming up is madness when the only back up we have is griff. And any replacement coming in couldn't be trusted to slot right in to Brendan's play.

Maybe he wants to go if he thinks it's better for him. In that case it's better for all if he does As long as we get a good deal from it. If we keep him it would not be good for anyone an unhappy player and not a good advert for us bringing in new talent if they think we will stop them from achieving their dreams.

3.) 16 May 2017 23:44:46
And in reality the team has time for the glue to set, this is only the early baby stages of this new era of what Celtic is, a powerhouse in europ I hope. If Dembele stays and wants to put Scottish football on the map again good on him, he could be as great as Larsson if he believes he can be the best.

Info from a good source: a person who has worked extensively for many years with Everton in a legal capacity has told my brother in law that when Lukaku goes in the summer, Dembele is the preferred replacement IF Celtic are willing to sell.

This guy is my brother in law's cousin and lives near Birkenhead. I have been to Goodison with him and my brother in law in the past and he has a very strong relationship with all the staff there.

He is Everton to the bone. He says it all depends on whether Celtic want to sell and if Dembele wants to leave Glasgow. He is a very respectable and well connected guy. Apparently Everton have watched Dembele numerous times and he's the guy they want. HH.

Bobthecat. The next family meeting will be a tad awkward if you have indeed delivered here :) . Names address and leanings. I like the slashed odds of variable sources even though i've never heard of them 😀. Better than a cabbies maw no end!
Not sure who reads this but you may have to change your name to ally cat. Nice sunshine. Like a good rumour!
. everton can gtf. my 2 pence anyway.

{Ed007's Note - Right now William Jose is the player that Everton are looking very seriously at as a striker to replace Lukaku. Dembele won't be going anywhere this summer as nobody will pay the - what is seen as unrealistic by some - price Celtic have put on him to frighten any potential suitors off. }

2.) 16 Apr 2017 02:15:03
What a name!
Im not the superstitious type.

3.) 16 Apr 2017 10:42:20
I hope you're right Ed. HH.

4.) 16 Apr 2017 19:05:08
MD is seen by all as a very good player and can only improve.

Its not news to say everton are interested, it would be news if everton aren't interested.

but until someone actually steps up with the asking price he's ours.



24 Feb 2017 15:12:09
Great to see that Griff is fit for the Hamilton game. Hopefully that means he is fit in body, mind and spirit. He is a top player when he's on tune and I think Dembele's success has taken away from that a bit. I've always liked Griff. He is a clinical finisher and hopefully he accepts that, as BR says, he had a duty to himself and the club both on and off the pitch to look after himself. HH.




11 Feb 2017 21:10:51
Apart from our very own Moussa is there any player in British football who is as dependable and reliable as KT when he plays? Bearing in mind that he still has some development ahead of him (all being well) he is going to be an absolute superstar on the stage of world football. HH.


1.) 11 Feb 2017 23:43:24
The boy is frightening, best player since larrson.

2.) 12 Feb 2017 10:51:22
Feed the mousse!

3.) 12 Feb 2017 11:13:44
Listen lads kt great wee player he's learning, so is dembele, but kt is behind him as far as experience goes. kt is full blooded raw player. atm he's the best lb in Scotland, he's had some hard times in cl ect Barcelona man, but c'mon guys this is his first, 1st team experience let the lad learn and enjoy him, hh.

4.) 12 Feb 2017 12:12:13
KT is not only the best young player to come out of the but also a incredible young man. Really proud of him on and off the park. A legend in the making.

5.) 12 Feb 2017 12:46:24
KT can easy go on n play at the very highest level. May it be the epl or la liga. But for now let's jus let him gain experience n enjoy the passion he brings to the side. HH.

6.) 12 Feb 2017 15:04:14
Yes DesH, by all accounts he seems to be a classy young lad in every way, both on and off the park.
Down to earth, living his own childhood dream of playing for Celtic and with both feet firmly on the ground with the help and support of a great family and circle of friends.
What a pity Feruz and Watt didn't have his attitude. Both of them could have (not necessarily would have) had great futures. HH.



29 Jan 2017 13:07:36
Paper stories suggesting that Celtic are to offer CG a new improved contract to stay. If true then fair play to the guy. I suspect he doesn't really want to go anyway and this might just be falling nicely for him. HH

Assuming Sevco beat their Europa League opponents it might be an idea for our club to restrict the selling of tickets for the away leg to Celtic fans in Ireland. The travelling would be dangerous for Scotland based fans seeing as a lot of Scots loyalists travel to Belfast every year for the 12th July Scumfest. There are enough diehard Celtic fans in NI to fill Windsor Park many times over. HH.


1.) 20 Jun 2017 09:00:23
Read that celtic are thinking g of turning down tickets to Windsor park.

2.) 20 Jun 2017 09:33:49
Hope so kev! For a start I wouldn't give them the money, and there's no way of our fans being safe over there at that time of year! Just want the game over and done with to be honest.

3.) 20 Jun 2017 09:55:29
That would be the best outcome Kev with the same conditions applying to the return leg. HH.

4.) 20 Jun 2017 11:30:37
Bob we have to offer tickets I think but can turn them down.
That right ed007?

{Ed007's Note - Yeah, Kev.}

5.) 21 Jun 2017 01:57:56
I have to say this was my first thought and I totally see where you are coming from BUT if we give in to these bigots and do this, then we are giving into them, a lot of the older members of our families have fought and campaigned against anti catholic bigotry in generations past and we have made some great strides against it, albeit with a lot of work still to be done . So if we as Celtic fans, who go all over the world supporting our club, with very little problem and a lot of joy, then we should in this day and age be able to go to Belfast and do the same, I have every faith in our support and if the other lot want to cause trouble then the authorities MUST deal with them .

6.) 21 Jun 2017 02:19:12
There's no chance that game will be played on the 12th.



26 May 2017 18:36:53
Are we going to see these for the next few seasons guys?


HH :-)


1.) 26 May 2017 19:17:00
Champ50ns 😏.

2.) 26 May 2017 23:26:27
Let's go for 55 wb ring any bells.



20 May 2017 07:20:03
The enigma that is James Forrest.
Much improved season for him under Brendan, here's a question.
Is he perhaps more suited to a different position? If you take him off the right wing where would you play him? Could he be an attacking wide midfielder? Any other thoughts? HH.


1.) 20 May 2017 08:18:44
I would turn Forrest into a RB with his pace because his final pass/ cross going forward is dreadful.

2.) 20 May 2017 08:30:14
You obviously haven't seen him trying to tackle malkybhoy.

3.) 20 May 2017 09:40:10
Thought he looked very comfortable on the left against thistle.
I would definitely keep him if he keeps this form up. Even if he is for back up and rotation.

4.) 20 May 2017 09:50:22
If roberts signs he is second choice to him on the rw. and Sinclair on lw . He could soon be overtaking in all positions available to him by the likes of Christie. Miller. nesbitt. johnstone. malky drop lustig. Gamboa who is faster and hinder Ralston to accommodate him? He is having his best season since breaking in to tbe team i agree . but players come to point where they are not going to progress or be the best option for the team and I think jf is approaching that stage in his Celtic career.

5.) 20 May 2017 16:59:42
There seems to be a higher bar set for home produced players, than those we have bought in accoriding to some fans.
This season although almost perfect domestically has seen some of the knowledgeable faithful decide that James Forrest and C McGregor are not good enough . Fortunately for himself K Tierney has managed to keep his head above this imaginary high bar .
Personally I really love the youngsters coming through and like to give them a wee bit extra support throughout their Celtic careers .
In my opinion it will be our youth of today that will determine our long term success of our club on the pitch . We will always compete at the bottom end of transfer market.



19 May 2017 09:21:29
You can only admire Brendan Rodgers and how he dealt with the Leigh Griffiths outburst that many would love to turn into a drama.
The guy is a class act in every way. HH.




03 May 2017 10:19:30
What do you think will happen with wee Paddy for the cup final? He said himself it will be either club OR country but it can't be both as the group stages for England finish the day before the cupfinal. He said he wants others to make the decision for him. HH.


{Ed007's Note - I don't know how it's going to pan out but for me he should be playing in the SC Final as I believe your club should always come first. I'd be happy if none of our players played international football.}

Surely there is no way we could offer him any kind of contract that another big team couldn't double or treble if they wanted him? HH.

If Roberts signs for us on a permanent deal I think we'll see an extra 10-20% from him next season, and what a player that would make him. He has been with us on loan and he has applied himself fantastically well but psychologically I believe he'll improve if it's made official that Paradise is home to him for the foreseeable future.
In a way it's a bit like comparing a house you rent to a house you buy. Yes you'll settle in the rented house for as long as you're their but when you buy a house you'll settle yourself much more. HH.

Is it cancelled for fear of what might happen or is it a mark of respect? HH.

The club will sell any player if the fee is correct. BR, Lawwell, Desmond and Co. know the value of our squad and if they're sold then it'll be for the right fee or not at all. HH.
