Someone is going to have to explain to me why we didn't sell Boyata for £9m and then reinvest in someone who actually wants to play for us. We will lose him for nowt next year and he is not as good as he thinks he is. Stupid decision as I'm certain if our scouts did their job we could get a decent CB for £5m or so. One of several bad decisions this window. They aren't great but will win most of their games and the game on Sunday is a must win to put down a marker.


{Ed002's Note - A good CB has arrived on loan.}

1.) 01 Sep 2018 09:06:08
Emanuel emenike is a free agent might be worth a punt big burly striker could do Us a turn as cover fir Griffiths and eddy.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 09:44:44
Chink67 I think that the plan could have been to get through the qualifiers then punt him.
We needed him for they games and the manager knew it.
The gaffer expected him to be a professional and if he had I've no doubt we'd have qualified.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 11:06:23
Heaney, Eminike is a good player but do you know if he has calmed down with age? Seem to remember he was a bit of a bam on and off the field.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 11:57:29
Lacina Traore is also unattached and guiseppe Rossi but he was always injured.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 12:04:23
He’s 31 now think he would be sound enough as cover but don’t think Rodgers would mind a challenge as long as he can still put the ball in the net.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 09:19:19
How do we know he is a good CB ed? let's face it, he got a move to leicester for a huge fee, but he is very young with very little experience. Ajer and hendry are bomb scares together and now we are relying on an unknown and boyata, a player who does not want to be here. Rodgers must be gutted. Is it just me or does anyone else see that we are going backwards? The morale and harmony in the squad can't be great after the exploits of boyata and dembele. Forgive the negativity but a 22yr unknown Cb on loan and a 31yr freebie that no one else wanted just won't do it for me. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Filip Benković picked Leicester over Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Chelsea with Spurs also showing an interest. He may well be unknown to you but he is well respected in the game. I hope he fails miserably at Celtic so you are not disappointed.}

7.) 01 Sep 2018 13:27:06
The CB has been chased by some big clubs including ours for years and the free that no one wanted was signing foe Swansea till we approach him.

8.) 01 Sep 2018 13:43:30
Just because he was linked to various clubs does not reflect his ability, he may well have potential but we don't need potential, we need ability particularly at the back! The fact he picked leicester over the clubs you mentioned ed tells me that he lacks ambition and favours money, dortmund would have been a great place for him to go! Or maybe these clubs you mentioned are just media hype. Anyway ed I ask again how do we know he is any good and not just another experiment? Please try and reply without being sarcastic. We all know we can't afford to have another experiment at the back. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Just forget it then. Try the approach of screaming vile abuse at him and start up a hate group on Facebook and force him out of the club. I truly hope he fails completely and loses Celtic multiple games to keep you happy.}

9.) 01 Sep 2018 13:51:30
I think the boy looks brilliant. I would play him tomorrow with Boyata. The only downer is he will leave before our CK qualifiers next season.

10.) 01 Sep 2018 13:58:30
For years kev, really? And we stole a 31 yr freebie from swansea, lol I should think so! Look I am just a bit concerned about where we are going and the signings we are making, like many fans I am not convinced. We are weaker than we were, no doubt about it. We lost armstrong, dembele and roberts who were first picks. Our defence is poor and we go out and get a freebie from killie, an unknown cb on loan, 2 young boys who are far from first team material and a LB who we punted a year ago. Forgive me for not being ecstatic. ☘HH.

11.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:55
Benkovic is a coup the board done well in that respect to get him here. Him Boyata and Ajer at the back will tear it up this season.

12.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:56
Benkovic will be or is the best CB at our club make no mistake this boy is a great player watch and see.

13.) 01 Sep 2018 14:29:41
Would you rather we go out and sign 14 players who are not in our league.

14.) 01 Sep 2018 15:17:56
No marco, but their two centre halfs would walk into our team. ☘HH.

15.) 01 Sep 2018 15:56:18
he has to be a troll 😂 Benkovic is a fantastic signing and hopefully will bring the best out of Jozo as well. 4 solid centre halves in the squad, until big Starvin Marvin comes in and plays a sweeper as part of a one man defence. Solid.

16.) 01 Sep 2018 16:33:50
Armstrong and Roberts first picks?
Guess you didn't watch us last season
Both where on bench when fit.
Both CBs would walk in to our team?
I smell 💩💩💩💩💩.

17.) 01 Sep 2018 17:10:39
Is that supposed to be light hearted kev? ☘HH.

18.) 01 Sep 2018 18:19:54
Goldson and there other CH are rotten they are terrible under pressure and have no pace we will take 3 or 4 off them and I’m willing to wager you on that and I never bet.



24 Feb 2018 22:46:36
Said it before and will say it again, not trying to get McGinn was a mistake. He is better now than Kouassi, Armstrong and more reliable than Rogic and eventually could play the Broony role.


1.) 25 Feb 2018 11:40:54
Top players from other spl clubs that have joined simply haven't stood the test of time. Brown, LG and SA (1 season) when on form have been exceptions. Our top players almost always are brought in from abroad. If the talent isn't there domestically, which it isn't, we have to continue to look further afield. I like McGinn but will he take this team up a level? I don't think so.
From our first team squad there could be GK departures. 3 defenders, 4 mf and 2 strikers. From the loaned out list Christie looks like the only one likely to get any game time.
To replace the likely departures 6 players at a bare minimum have to be brought in. For me they ALL need to be first team ready. 25M might do that. I'd say we won't go north of 12.

2.) 26 Feb 2018 13:40:19
Scott McDonald, Caldwell, Robson, Hartley, McNamara, Mark Wilson, Stokes, Mulgrew, Agathe etc

all our own youth players are domestic as well.

Paul Lambert was developed at SPL clubs

sure there has been as many failures but you can count as many failures we have signed from foreign leagues also.

Why don't reporters ask the pertinent questions? Like "Brendan, as an avid lifelong Celtic fan did winning a historic treble treble not register with you as something that you simply couldn't walk away from. In doing so did you think about what your departure might do to the chances of such a feat? " Jose has summed it up perfectly, he could have told them yes I want to work for you, when my work here is complete.


1.) 04 Mar 2019 10:39:05
No very often i agree with that bam but he's spot on and Rodgers knows it.

2.) 04 Mar 2019 18:27:27
A Celtic man would have stayed for the Rebel Treble he didn’t because he wasn’t and isn’t a Celtic man.



02 Mar 2019 10:00:30
So BR would like to manage us again! Talk about deluded and up himself? If Lenny wasn't available he was prepared to leave us in the lurch with no care of whether or not we could get over the line. The acts of a true Celt? And by his own admission Leicester only wanted him, so despite what they say they would have waited. Good riddance.


1.) 02 Mar 2019 11:48:42
i think the lenny deal was in the pipeline long before rodgers moved so i think he knew we were going to be looked after and in a good position, im totally torn in this situation, because to have adored a guy for so long to suddenly have that flipped to disgust for him and now i don't know what to think, although one thing i will say is those coots that sung i hope you die are the worst thing in all of this🇮🇪✌️.



01 Mar 2019 14:55:39
BR is now quoting " all my family are Celtic fans" but not including himself in that. If you listen to him after the Scottish Cup final in his first season now it is embarrassing. Words along the ones of, "no I'm not falling for this club, I was born into it" . I smell 🐃.


1.) 01 Mar 2019 23:13:15
I remember that 😂😂😂😂😂.



27 Feb 2019 21:42:31
Loved the banner. Well said. KT immense tonight and Brown drove the team to victory. Big Ajer is never a CH, school boy stuff to let ball run across him. Fantastic victory and a BIG step to 8. HH.


1.) 27 Feb 2019 21:55:24
KT was well off the pace tonight as was the whole team. Delighted with the 3 points.

2.) 27 Feb 2019 22:05:29
Disagree about Ajer, think he was sold out. Bain had chance to lump ball up park which being 1-0 up against 10 men would have been the thing to do.

3.) 27 Feb 2019 22:26:55
The ball should have been jumped but anno some o here will disagree but av never been to sure about ajer like boyata there always seems to be a mistake in him.

{Ed007's Note - Ajer's young and still learning, Boyata should have punted it out for a throw in and that would have nipped the situation in the bud.}

4.) 27 Feb 2019 22:41:08
Ajer should never been put in that position.

5.) 27 Feb 2019 22:51:05
Lennon made a good comment after the game when asked if he’d make any changes. Thought he was spot on about “bringing pressure on themselves” and “over playing at times” . This isn’t sour grapes but that’s where Rodgers failed for me, not wanting to adjust to certain games/ opponents. GBNL.

6.) 27 Feb 2019 23:09:12
Not one part of that was Ajers fault. Boyata puts the keeper under pressure, who makes a mistake and the continuation puts Ajer under pressure. He is a CB and will be in the future. He’s 20 years old and arguably our best CB bar Benkovic and he’s not even ours.

Lennons comments seem fresh. He reckons we use the ball to much sometimes forgot the actual quote. Too much passing around in the midfield, as he mentioned, one good ball into the box and it resulted in a goal. How many times have we scored crucial goals that way this season?

7.) 28 Feb 2019 01:39:22
Boyata has more mistakes in him than Ajer, when he shouldn't as he's a good bit older than Ajer, and i agree with Ed he's still a young boy and like most CBs will get better with age and gametime, also keep in mind he's only been a CB for 2 and a half years, RD signed him when he was a midfielder that could play at CB, so it's going to take time just be patient with the bhoy. Boyata or Bain should have lumped it up the park, you never play a square pass across the front of your goal it invites trouble.



26 Feb 2019 15:50:30
Regardless of whether you were BR's biggest fan or not (actually u can't be he was) he has let every single Celtic player and fan down. If he comes back to watch us what will the reception be? Compare that to if he left as treble treble manager who took us as far as he could. Seriously flawed thinking- bank balance v decency and standing in the Celtic family for ever more.


1.) 26 Feb 2019 16:11:56
We don't know what was going on behind the scenes but I am sad he chose to leave at such a crucial time in the season.

2.) 26 Feb 2019 16:27:22
Money talks mate at the end of the day. Cheers for the memories Brendan. We move on and get someone in. Lennon Delia and BR have been part of our march to 10 in a row. Every ending is a new beginning. There will be the usual moaning arguing blaming the board Lawell etc but we all know whoever is brought in we will back him 100%.2 big games coming up so here's hoping he hits the ground running!

3.) 26 Feb 2019 16:36:24
Raw, he was ragin with dembele, it's worse what he's done. At least dembele left for a decent club, and he never spun us the I'm one of u sh! te.

Problem is that any quality CB wouldn't want to come now if they are not going to play for 6 months. There can be no excuse in the summer though as the search must surely start now.

I think board realise the mob could have a decent run in and are playing them at their own game, loans or not as long as it's 8 we can properly strengthen in the summer.

I hope not, but he is way better than Hendry to be fair. And Hayes isn't going to cut it. 2 fringe players out and a first 11 starter does make some sense. Not what we would wish for tho.

BR signed most of those mentioned and you are spot on, none would be missed. Hopefully the new signings will be better but would like to see signings that will be instant first team picks.

Morgan signed for us 12 months ago, has had 6 months at St Mirren and further 6 with us. During this period we have been ravaged with injuries and loss of form and he has been unable to get into the team other than the odd cameo. He might come good, like Kouassi.

Rogic gets injured often when playing for Oz. If he sacked that we would get far more games from him. When fit and firing (admittedly not often) he is a fantastic footballer.

Can't see Kouassi or Morgan making it with us. Rather than buying 2 or 3 risky signings I would use transfer fees in and saved wages to get Burke. Right age, loves club, bags of potential, will scare the st! t of the mobs defence. No brainer for me. And he can make it happen by doing a "Van Dyke" . He made it clear to Southampton it was Liverpool or nothing.

I am on the fence. Appointing any manager has it's risks so at least with NL we know what he can bring to the table. If he gets the better of SG in the league and Cup (if they get thro) that would be enough in my book to earn at least a rolling 12 month deal. Plus See if he can sign a Centre Half! BR couldn't get that right over 2.5 years.

Quinn1888, I think it was tricky but could have been handled behind the scenes. He agrees to take over in summer but no announcement until we have secured the league - 6-8games maybe . Then a proper farewell whilst lifting the Scottish Cup. It happens all the time that way. It he drove it through asap. Why?
