Heard marco rose is the preferred option as manager, and he has hinted he will be leaving in the summer. Thought this was a non starter my self but the rumour seems to be picking up traction.


1.) 21 Mar 2019 11:26:49
That would be ideal Cory. Hope we don’t just go with Lennon. I think we could learn a lot from Rose and can clearly spot a player. Plus his links to the Eastern European market would be absolutely ideal.

2.) 21 Mar 2019 13:56:58
100% agree and he is my preferred choice, but I thought this rumour was a non starter but thing seem to be falling in to place and if he does leave then who knows. If we don't get him though I think it's a cert to be Lennon unless the rest of the season is a disaster. We got 9 million for Rodgers that either needs to go on another manager or players. preferably both.

3.) 22 Mar 2019 01:21:10
Lennon would be a huge step backwards imo we need a good European coach to take us to the next level but the board need to back him.



10 Mar 2019 10:29:16
Celtic looking to get kalas from chelsea in the summer. Would cost around 6 million.


1.) 10 Mar 2019 11:21:56
Ed007 is months ahead of the press with this rumour.
He broke it before the last transfer window opened.

2.) 10 Mar 2019 12:35:19
Let's get done now because if we go into a bidding war then we've no chance.

3.) 10 Mar 2019 13:24:00
Don't know much about him, would he be a good addition?

4.) 10 Mar 2019 13:08:05
IMO We need 2 CBs and a right back in the next transfer window atleast I hope this isn't just a rumour and we are actually looking at him one thing is for sure we will need to spend a lot of money in the Summer or 10iar will be in danger let alone not being a push over in Europe.

5.) 10 Mar 2019 14:00:30
Bain/ Gordon

New RB, Ralston

Ajer, Kalas, Hendry, Commper, Jozo Tierney.

McGregor, Ntcham, Brown, Bitton, Christie, Rogic, Kouassi

Sinclair, Forrest, Johnston, Shved, Arzani, Morgan

Griff, Eddy, Bayo

Looking at the squad, we need cover at Left Back as Gutman won’t be ready. Ralston is not ready for a full season of games and we don’t have depth in that position either.

We seem weak on the wings. I imagine they are working hard on an overhaul. Going to be tough but we need to do business ASAP and push for transfers. Time to kick on. If we can get Boyata tied down.

6.) 10 Mar 2019 15:21:46
Worst thing is firstly we need to get a manager sorted for the next year who ever it is then the new players in and old ones out One thing for sure it's going to be a busy Summer for PL not sure how much of that is his own doing.

7.) 10 Mar 2019 16:51:15
Never going to happen now that the mighty Sevco have said they are interested.

8.) 11 Mar 2019 15:30:39
Been looking out since the window for him. Seems decent playing good level in the championship. Is the fee around 5 million?

9.) 11 Mar 2019 20:30:15
Potential is with these new investors we may be able to spend that bit extra on a player like Ntcham. Two or three signings in key posissions and we will be fine.

10.) 12 Mar 2019 08:27:42
IMO we are going to need minimum of 6-8 players in the summer I reckon.

GK - Bain, NEW
LB - Tierney, NEW
CB - NEW, NEW, Ajer, Jozo
CM - Brown, Bitton
AM - McGregor, Rogic, Christie, Ntcham
WING - Forrest, NEW, Shved, Morgan
ST - Edouard, Bayo, Griffiths (NEW if he doesn't make it back) .

Rest of the squad made up with some youth and younger players about the first team.
Hazard, Ralston, Gutman, Welsh, Church, Kouassi, Henderson, McInroy, Johnston, Arzani, Dembele, Oko-Flex, Aitchison

Possibly 11 players leaving with players out of contract and loans.

Out of Contract
De Vris, Lustig, Gamboa, Izaguirre, Boyata, Allan, Sinclair

Loans finishing
Toljan, Benkovic, Burke, Weah

I would be trying to offload as many of these as possible as well.
Gordon, Miller, Compper, Hendry, Mulumbu, Hayes

Some amount of wages amongst that lot, surely that could cover at least 4 first 11 players and a few squad ll players.

11.) 12 Mar 2019 12:15:57
Sinclair ain't going anywhere and I'd be happy to have Hayes as Tierneys back up.

12.) 12 Mar 2019 18:18:18
Well put King Henrik. Hopefully that’s the idea. Lennon did say that he had discussions with congerton and lawwell on incoming players. There are a few in the pipeline and i would like to think deals would be done quickly. Deals will be done regardless of the manager. Working to Congertons list. I imagine he isn’t doing as bad a job as once thought. Considering we are tapping into the right markets now. Eastern European leagues create amazing talents and there’s no reason why we can’t exploit that especially with the Gained investment from that London company. At the end of the day Lawwell needs to make money.



30 Jan 2019 09:58:37
Looks as though scott brown is about to sign a new 2 year contract. Broony is staying for 10.


1.) 30 Jan 2019 10:16:59
Not sure this is good news great captain but I just hope Rodgers doesn’t play him because he’s the captain he’s not in the top 2 cm we have now and will only hold the likes of eboue back who i believe will be a great player, I really don’t no what to make of it.

2.) 30 Jan 2019 10:26:18
Heard he's took a major pay cut to do it as well.

3.) 30 Jan 2019 11:09:16
Think it's great news the man's a leader and even if his play ing times reduced he's great to have about for bhoys like young kt and Henderson to advise.

4.) 30 Jan 2019 12:13:15
Is there no chance he could move further back into a more defensive position or sweeper type role?

5.) 30 Jan 2019 12:32:56
I'm happy he's decided to stay. He still has plenty to offer in many ways. Does anyone suspect that this decision might give the green light for a deadline day Ntcham departure? Those Porto rumours went quiet anyway.



20 Nov 2018 18:13:31
Mikey Johnston has signed a new deal till 2023.


1.) 20 Nov 2018 19:52:58
can he play right back?

2.) 20 Nov 2018 21:09:38
Steady happy will be on to you.

3.) 20 Nov 2018 22:31:15

4.) 20 Nov 2018 23:55:06
Along with grumpy, sneezy and dopey. that right mally.

My one performance I was disappointed with last night was boyata. For me he would be on the bench the rest of the season with simo and ajer first choice. Need to build a partnership for next season and boyata is no better than either of them for me. But Last night show we can compete in Europe and with a few defensive reinforcements in the summer and we can progress.


1.) 22 Feb 2019 12:54:43
Thought boyata was excellent as was the whole back line, couple of times concentrating between the back 3 happened early on with misplaced passes but apart from that they were very strong under pressure.

2.) 22 Feb 2019 17:32:08
Boyata was awful first half and rock solid second half. Jozo and Ajer was rocks too. Brown and Bain also.

3.) 22 Feb 2019 19:24:59
All the nonsense aside I think we need better than Boyata. He done ok second half but really he's not that great a defender.

We can do better. We need 2 quality CBs and Ajer should learn from them.



19 Jan 2019 18:15:15
Ralston and Bain both need to be given a run in the team. Both been superb.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 19:02:50
Bain yes, Ralston no.

2.) 19 Jan 2019 19:07:10
Ralston played well tonight
Deserves a run.

3.) 19 Jan 2019 19:13:09
Ralston man of match the boys rubbish eh dafa bet.

4.) 19 Jan 2019 19:16:10
I don't think you can judge any player after that game. Airdrie were dire.

5.) 19 Jan 2019 19:44:28
Ah daftabit after I pointed out last week that Seamus Coleman was a right back and therefore wouldn't be coming to take KT's place you must have info that he is in fact coming to take Ralston and Lustig's place. hahahahahah Have you started baking that humble pie you want me to eat?

6.) 19 Jan 2019 19:45:53
Agree lawman, Ralston looks very poor defensively.

7.) 19 Jan 2019 19:46:26
Top end SPL clubs would walk through him.

8.) 19 Jan 2019 19:52:45
Thought Anthony was the best player on the pitch, and to be fair he gives everything.

9.) 19 Jan 2019 20:59:08
Donjim, what has Kt got to do with the RB position? Stick to watching Aberdeen SON.

10.) 19 Jan 2019 21:07:05
Both Ralston and Bain deserve a chance. Not purely on today’s performance but anytime Bain has played he’s never let us down and looks so composed with the ball at his feet, distribution compared to Gordon is night and day. For dafabet to slaughter Ralston is laughable. Thought the boy done well today, and in my opinion in hindsight should have started at Ibrox instead of lustig who has been poor for long enough although I’d still like a more experienced RB brought in.

11.) 19 Jan 2019 21:54:02
Ralston was good tonight and has been since he came it. Bain is a must.

12.) 19 Jan 2019 22:49:18
They both deserve their chance and this is not just based off of today.

13.) 19 Jan 2019 22:52:15
You can say Weah is class some finish.

14.) 19 Jan 2019 22:57:26
Gerry the boy Ralston done nothing whilst out on loan last year. Going forward he looks ok, defensively he is poor and will cost us points in the SPL. Nowhere near good enough for the first 11.

15.) 20 Jan 2019 00:00:49
Daftabit you must have forgotten what you wrote on 3rd january and posted in "Celtic Other Posts" section, its still there for all to see

03 Jan 2019 17:23:57
Bhoys I am hearing strong rumours that Shamus Coleman is Celtic bound possibly part of a deal for KT.




21 Dec 2018 17:56:54
Hearts and aberdeen have said they are willing to help fund VAR for the league. How would everyone feel if celtic said the same?


1.) 21 Dec 2018 19:25:56
It still wouldn't work as whoever monitors the screens would be accused of Celtic or Rangers leanings. Every VAR decision against them would be cause for A Statement!

2.) 21 Dec 2018 19:34:27
Reply to Cory 67 personally if I won the lottery I'd pay for it tomorrow myself yes we know it's not foolproof but I'll tell you this, over a season we would Definitely benefit from it, and every Tim knows it would. BRING IT ON.

3.) 21 Dec 2018 21:21:43
I think we should too. It will prevent a lot (Not all) mistakes by refs. There will always be fans screaming bias, and there will always be mistakes but this cut out the most obvious ones. There needs to be a clear review process along with it when there disagreement. But for me it would be a step in the right direction.

4.) 21 Dec 2018 22:20:22
Do you not still require the ref to call for var to get involved during the game?

{Ed007's Note - And who makes the decisions, ex-refs, current officials etc We can all argue whether if it's a penalty after watching endless replays so at the end of the day it still comes down to the exact same officials' decisions. Would you trust Hugh Dallas Snr to run the VAR department? Bobby Maden on VAR duties at a TRIFC game with Baby Dallas on the pitch reffing the match?
If the Bundesliga need to sack their head of VAR for all sorts of shady stuff going on what chance has Scotland got of getting it right, it also opens up LOADS more avenues for match-fixing etc for gambling.}

5.) 21 Dec 2018 22:33:35
I would only trust it if oab was in charge 😂.

{Ed007's Note - Him and Tam Boyd 😂😂😂

6.) 22 Dec 2018 01:29:32
It’s one thing to describe a bad call as an ‘honest mistake’ when a referee has to make a split second decision but it would be difficult to justify it after a panel of ‘neutrals’ had looked at it in slow motion several times and still got it wrong. I say bring it on!

{Ed001's Note - you might want to go look at what has happened in Italy and Germany then. It is just as easy then, because the officials can use numerous get out calls, such as it wasn't a clear and obvious mistake so they just won't even look at it or say they haven't looked at it.}

7.) 22 Dec 2018 09:16:36
Hi Welshy; V A R stands for Vilify All Referees - (in Scotland) lol Catch up with you all on the 'live chat' later.

8.) 22 Dec 2018 09:51:09
Haha joke of the year goes to pud! Rangers or celtic leanings haha.

9.) 22 Dec 2018 10:38:21
I think he’s only calling it The the rest of the teams see it.

10.) 22 Dec 2018 11:39:55
If it's var the ones making the calls couldn't make wrong ones because it's not a split second decision and would be sacked if they did. its a yes from me.

11.) 22 Dec 2018 00:12:35
ok Ed, I guess you are not for then?
I would be ok if the paying customer (crowd) saw the same clip as ref at same time while HE explained his decision.

{Ed007's Note - I just think it's pointless as it's the same people still making the decisions, watching it again only backs up their initial decision as well. Would football fans accept a VAR decision as final if they still thought it was wrong?
The ref explaining things to the crowd's never going to happen.}

12.) 22 Dec 2018 16:23:48
Here's the thing. VAR is coming. We all know it it, so we as a club better be at the front battling to make sure it's fine right.

13.) 23 Dec 2018 03:05:01
Ed, how would the panel explain the Morelos goal at Tymecastle? If nothing else, it would sort out the erroneous offside decisions and we wouldn’t have to hope that they might even themselves out over the course of the season.

{Ed007's Note - They wouldn't need to explain anything because that's not what VAR is for. It would only cut out offside decisions if a) the ref called for a VAR review and b) the ref overrules the linesman's decision (what would that do with moral between our officials). Can you see many Scottish refs watching a VAR review and then holding their hands up and saying they got the initial call wrong?
What if the ref looked at VAR and decided Morelos goals stood, would you accept that it was onside then - after all the super dooper VAR confirmed it to the ref? What people don't seem to grasp is that it's still a human decision, it's still the same people making the decisions except now that will be able to say that he did review a decision and VAR actually strengthens the ref's case for making the initial decision.}

14.) 23 Dec 2018 11:29:35
I get that it still comes down to the decision of a person but I think when it is blatantly obvious, as in the Morelos goal, it would be difficult for that person to justify. I’d like to think that it might develop in a similar way as tennis has developed to allow each player a pre-determined number of challenges which would take out the dependence on the referee calling it into play.



09 Dec 2018 16:09:00
With brown likely to get less game time, perhaps even leave in the summer, and the obvious need for a new rb. will Tierney be captain next season? Is he ready?


1.) 09 Dec 2018 16:33:30
Can't see Brown leaving tbh.

2.) 09 Dec 2018 18:04:52
He's more than ready Cory67. His development has been frightening and I believe we'll really struggle to keep him beyond 10IAR.



26 Nov 2018 09:10:51
So the police are blaming celtic players celebrating for the fans getting crushed at the last sevco match, and want to put an end to laps of honour. it clearly has nothing to do with 50% more fans using the Janet street tunnel.


1.) 26 Nov 2018 10:16:23
They didn't blame the players for the crush.
They blamed them for inciting the fans of The Rangers.

2.) 26 Nov 2018 10:28:57
Either way still stupid. Rangers fans can't behave them selves and celtic get the blame.

3.) 26 Nov 2018 10:32:47
Good think we have a strong Plc that will be out fighting our corner. Hold my breath for the awaited report.

4.) 26 Nov 2018 12:00:25
The crush was before the game. The Rangers cut our ticket allocation and Celtic reciprocated. Their loyal fans therefore had to be held back after the game (literally) for safety reasons.

When we were celebrating it just got all too much for the travelling Govanites as we serenaded them and had it not been for Strathclydes finest they would have invaded the pitch and got to the Celtic players ironically at the same corner their previous club once did a huddle with not a word said.

Truth is the Govanites came to the Land of the Timites that day smelling blood after our fairly poor start to the season and when they were once again smited, couldn’t handle it. Nothing to do with the Celtic players celebrating. A misrepresentation of the facts by Police Scotland. The bottom line is, if you can’t go and watch your team getting pumped by the club that represents all you despise without losing the plot stay in the house.

But in fairness I would like to express my thanks to Stevie G and his travelling hoards for giving me the best laugh I think I’ve ever had at the end of a game as they were forced to watch our celebrations as a result of there own actions and subsequent reduced ticket allocation.

5.) 26 Nov 2018 12:59:39
The players go round and applaud the fans after every home and away games. They can't control their 'Battle Fever' 😂😂

6.) 26 Nov 2018 17:26:45
To be fair it’s always the Celtic players fault anytime there is trouble. Manchester, Scottish cup final against Hibs, the 2 fans getting stabbed in Glasgow few months back, fighting with Wigan fans in city centre, attempted attack on Scott brown, LG nearly hit with DD batteries, young boy getting racially abused in a Euro away game and finally their fans running onto park to celebrate a late goeal against Partick thistle. I’m sure there are plenty I’ve left out but Celtic board need to get a grip of our fans for causing all this trouble.

7.) 26 Nov 2018 19:39:08
This seems a very similar reaction to the one that followed crowd trouble at Ibrox in 1941 when the decision then was taken to close Celtic Park for a month.

8.) 26 Nov 2018 21:44:23
LG’s Buckie bottle yellow card.

Papers today dragging up 1980 cup final and the more ‘recent’ high Dallas coin!

That was 20 years ago!

9.) 27 Nov 2018 11:20:49
The fact there was only 800 sevconites and nearly the whole sevco end was mainly tims. the players had every right to go to that end of the ground. the boss was right it's up to the sevco fans to behave . they should be used to getting pumped off us by now.

I would take him in a heart beat but why would he leave to come to us, when he has just beat us twice in a season? I think this one is a non starter for me. It will be Lennon or clarke (hopefully lennon)
