John McGinn is being brought in to supplement the squad. Brendan has said he needs to replace Armstrong and Paddy before he brings in the quality that will go straight into the first team.


1.) 15 Jul 2018 08:56:47
I reckon we already have paddy replacement in Johnston and Morgan.



05 Jul 2018 00:56:56
guys if it's true that Everton want to pay 25 million fir KT then we should seriously consider it. Top money.


1.) 05 Jul 2018 03:20:47
Considered it. nah.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 05:43:20
How is it top money if spurs got 54 mill for a left back.

{Ed001's Note - what is the record fee for a player sold from the Scottish League? Would it be top money compared to that? I honestly can't remember, but thinking that might be the comparison, rather than a made up, non-existent Spurs left-back going for 54mill, which has never happened. They did sell a right back for that price, in Kyle Walker, but never a left back.}

3.) 05 Jul 2018 05:47:36
Who would you replace him with Dafabet?

4.) 05 Jul 2018 06:55:27
Is the record fee not what we sold big virg for mate.

{Ed001's Note - which would be around about £14m I think. Though not sure if that includes any sell on fees or other add ons. In which case that would make £25m top money surely? Not as much as the player would be worth if he was in one of the top 3 leagues plying his trade, but for the SPFL surely the OP has a point?

Saying that, if the club don't need to sell and the player is happy to stay, why on earth would you sell him for it? There are so few quality left backs around, you would be mad to let one of the best young ones go for anything less than obscene money.}

5.) 05 Jul 2018 08:16:27
Will never get my head round wanting to sell or best players for x amount. Could understand if we were in finical trouble but we aren't.

6.) 05 Jul 2018 09:10:48
We could keep him for another 2 years and if he keeps progressing like he is at the minute and remains injury free there more money to be made.

7.) 05 Jul 2018 09:29:17
VVD sold on the cheap no less than 50 million or look elsewhere simple.

8.) 05 Jul 2018 10:08:35
Yeah we got done on the VVD situation like.

9.) 05 Jul 2018 12:31:36
I'd accept £40 million it's a crazy number even for KT, but football is a crazy money down south. If someone came in with that kind of offer it's to good to knock back. If that was invested and the club offered a further £10-15 million transfer fees your looking at taking the club to the next level. But a it's and buts. £25million I'd knock back atm.

{Ed007's Note - And if KT doesn't want to move do you think the Club should force him out the door?}

10.) 05 Jul 2018 12:44:52
Kt is only going to improve so surely if we're going to get to the next level it would be better to keep our core of young players and let them take us there. Unless they want to leave of course.

11.) 05 Jul 2018 13:05:59
I hope he stays but if these epl teams want him bad enough then the price I would put is 50 million 25 million is peanuts to these clubs.

12.) 05 Jul 2018 12:51:19
Defo not Ed. We have him for 6 yrs, his stocks only going to go up. But id agree, 40m is where id start talking to people. 25m, meh. We have more than that lying around already and can't spend it.

13.) 05 Jul 2018 15:19:46
It would be false economy to sell the best players, possibly meaning less money from Europe because the teams been weakened.

14.) 05 Jul 2018 15:46:19
Like ed said as long as kt wants to stay I say keep him. How are we meant to build a team if we constantly sell off our best players. How for instance can we try and keep hold of Dembele for another season or two if we are selling off the better players. Plus, does anyone on here realistically think the club are going to let him spend all the funds we get for kt. I’d doubt it, also as most people have said on this forum, that we have needed a new right back for the last couple of seasons yet we haven’t done it. Maybe filling full back/ wing backs is not easy especially when you have to replace a top quality one for a smallish sum in terms of what other countries teams can pay.

{Ed007's Note - I think people looking for a RB to replace Lustig are going to be very disappointed, Lustig will be first choice RB next season.}

15.) 05 Jul 2018 16:35:38
Ed007 and rightly so. Great player for us.

{Ed007's Note - We've got two defenders that are playing for teams in the Last 8 of the World Cup and a lot of fans want rid of both of them.}

16.) 05 Jul 2018 17:44:08
It’s bit about replacing Lustig if he is in top form. It’s about having someone to fill in who we can have confidence in. We need quality back up and right now we don’t have it. Say he gets injured? What then? Ralston? Gamboa?

We need a right back to compete for the position.

17.) 05 Jul 2018 20:51:11
Sorry for the late reply. If KT doesn't want to go that's fine he doesn't go. I'd rather have KT who wants to play for Celtic than 4 £10 million players who use us as a stepping stone. When you play your heart out for the club the fans know your giving it your all. That's all we can ask.

But in theory if he went for £40 million I'd wish the board invest but probably unlikely to happen.

18.) 06 Jul 2018 10:12:03
We can't sell PC Lustig, we need him for the celebrations when all the goals fly in against sevco.

19.) 06 Jul 2018 10:14:36
Sorry guys take the £25k he's only worth about that at most, up your offer to us to £3m for McGinn and you've got a bargain, and by the way you need to pump the Huns.

20.) 06 Jul 2018 22:58:27
Ed007 . You mentioning our two players still in the World Cup, yet our fans have given them dog's abuse . Sometimes fans are hard to understand.



12 May 2018 12:58:30
I think we can all agree the things have not worked out for paddy this year due to injury, it's a pity as he is a quality player. He wants to play in the EPL next year so fair play to him. Will be interested to see the ins and outs this summer, I think there could be a lot of changes in the squad due to players wanting to leave, not getting game time etc.


1.) 12 May 2018 15:40:17
That RB from Fulham would be a good signing Fredricks quick and good going forward and seems like a not bad defender, out of contract at the end of the season supposedly 👍🏼.

2.) 13 May 2018 10:11:53
Can see Roberts at Leicester if Mahrez gets his City move

Wish him all the best, Edouard apart our loans gave not been hugely successful and I hope we ditch them.

Would rather see if our own players can make the step up.



04 Apr 2018 22:53:32
Guys just heading home from the game and yet again we were useless. We can't string a couple of wins together. The truth is we are a decent amount of points ahead purely because the opposition is even worse. If any of the chasing pack win the last 7 games in a row they will run us close.


1.) 05 Apr 2018 08:17:43
Useless? Really? In what way were we useless because we didn't score with any of our 10+ chances?

2.) 05 Apr 2018 08:50:33
Terrible performance, build up painfully slow and no goals v st johnstone, motherwell and now dundee. We are limping over the line and every team comes to Celtic park to sit deep and we continue with this 20 passes to cross half way line. Also jack hendry was dreadful and caught out of position far too often.

3.) 05 Apr 2018 13:15:44
Lets limp over the line and reassess where we are and what we do in the summer. Yes at times it ain't pretty and players have not been up to standards of last season but that said we are still top and going to be champions. Would rather be in this position than that of the zombies.

4.) 05 Apr 2018 13:46:34
If we manage to win the double treble playing like we are nobody will remember the performances. Will you still be complaining and using outrageous statements like "we are useless" if we do so? . I think your reaction is way over the top, I agree some of our performances have been lack lustre but some have been amazing as well, but again to cry us useless is ridiculous.

5.) 05 Apr 2018 15:43:38
Sounds like a fan who only goes to games when his pal cannot make it or watches it on a live stream? I can’t make it to as many games the joys of working in retail but I realise we can’t go out all guns blazing all the time and wipe the floor with teams. If a team parks the bus and are well organised it’s hard to break them down we had twenty odd efforts at goal last night about half hitting the target so unlucky not to take the points but be reslistic 1.75 seasons in and Brendan will do for me? Uj mind the gap and hail hail 🍀⚽️🏆🏆🏆.

6.) 05 Apr 2018 16:23:37
Stan, did you attend the game?

If you did you would know that their keeper didn’t have anything to do or a real save to make.

7.) 05 Apr 2018 16:55:23
. and that makes us useless. Ok.

8.) 05 Apr 2018 16:56:19
He must’ve had something to do as we had 7 shots on target? I would hope wee paddy gets a run of games switched Forrest to the left and let’s see how that works out get Griffiths back in also get some drive and desire to win a game and by a few goals again onwards and upwards.

9.) 05 Apr 2018 18:26:30
Big p that's the point nobody has made wee paddy needs more pitch time he came on agaibst Motherwell and another 10 mins and we'd have won it.

10.) 05 Apr 2018 19:31:39
Too many people with the green tinted specks on, I don’t know why but we have not played well on very many occasions this year. Just my opinion. when we come up against a well organised team with journeymen pros such as Kilmarnock, Dundee and St Johnstone etc we struggle to break them down. How Forrest didn’t get subbed last night is beyond me.

11.) 05 Apr 2018 19:52:03
That's the thing Dafabet how often do teams come out and attack us at home they are usually set up as a defensive unit. The best players in the world struggle to break down teams that set up with 2 lines of defense. We do better against the so called better teams because they come and have a go and leave gaps for us to exploit on the counter attack. Yes performances nowhere near as consistent as last season but it certainly does not make us useless. Will anyone care about last night when Broonie is lifting the Trophy for No 7, doubt it.

12.) 05 Apr 2018 21:08:01
Dafabet - this season to date has been infuriating

If R.D. was in charge the reaction would be different though. Yeah we may well get another treble but you want to get it in style not with mediocre performances.

And let’s be clear we should be going for our 7th treble in a row given the gulf in quality between us and the rest, that’s where B.R. comes into his own mind and hopefully he can get us playing well and winning next season.

13.) 05 Apr 2018 21:27:12
On the way to seven in a row and back to back trebles still a distinct probability and so called fans come on to ridicule.

14.) 05 Apr 2018 21:27:35
In what dimension are one of the teams behind going to win the next 7 games in a row? 😂.

15.) 05 Apr 2018 22:05:15
Agree Kev T.

16.) 05 Apr 2018 22:08:38
Baws, you can bet your bottom dollar we won’t win all our Remaining SPL games. We can’t get passed 3 this season.

17.) 06 Apr 2018 11:44:23
Apart from about four games, we have been frustrating to watch this year. Some players form has dipped and the defence continues to cause heart failure and goals.

We keep hoping they will click and all thought after the Zenit gone game that it might happen. Even in that game our failure to put away chances was a worry. The return was poor and those missed chances cost us.

Form will return for those players affected, but, the defence needs sorted or we are in for a harder time qualifying fit the CL and the real possibility of embarrassing defeats from the top two in any group.

Brendan has had four windows to sort the defence. After Ibrox even he must know he needs to buy quality RB CB. and for me at least, another goalie.

Sort that and we will take off.



21 Jan 2018 18:05:07
Edd 007 is it true that we had agreed a few with Chelsea for Moussa last year and he failed a medical?


{Ed007's Note - First I've heard of it.}

1.) 21 Jan 2018 18:42:05
When would he have done the medical?

2.) 21 Jan 2018 20:22:02
Was he not pictured outside CP last season or am i thinking of someone else.

3.) 22 Jan 2018 10:58:15
Aye he was seen outside CP last season, he was on top of Shergar and Lord Lucan was carrying his bags. I remember seeing it on the news. Elvis was there too, but was too shook up to comment.

4.) 22 Jan 2018 11:35:12
He was down in London towards the end of last January's window. There was talk it was to meet Chelsea reps but BR came out and said it was for a scan on his knee. Could have been a smokescreen?

5.) 22 Jan 2018 13:56:43
I've just realised this post is about Moussa and not Musonda!

6.) 22 Jan 2018 16:53:50
Me too lol.

13 May 2018 19:34:37
It was a nothing game today however we need to be much better next season. Rangers can't be worse, they can get better. Hail Hail.


1.) 13 May 2018 21:12:23
The magnificent 'invincible' season was always going to be a benchmark for BR and the team, but in reality it may never be equaled again as everything fell into place perfectly last season.
This season has seen numerous injuries and form dips, resulting in 33 less goals scored and the winning margin drop to nine points - from the previous years 30, with us losing four games and drawing ten and although it does show the performances have not been as convincing and the gap between first and second has closed, we are still by far the top side in the country, but we do need to keep improving and adapting to maintain our superiority.
There's no doubt most teams raise their game and pack their defense against the Champions - that's the way it always is - but we really need to work on overcoming these tactics and especially making maximum use of set-pieces, as we do earn a fair amount every game, but waste far too many.

2.) 13 May 2018 22:12:46
There was nothing at stake today so the result wasn't important. It's just a bit disappointing though that we finished the season with 2 home matches yet failed to score in either of them. I do think that we need to address this in the summer.
Just a small point, and it has nothing to do with the result today, but how is the amount of injury time worked out? . In the first half there was no injury time at all, and in the second half there was only 2 minutes despite there being six substitutions, an Aberdeen goal, and the trainer being on the field. I was always led to believe that there should be 30 seconds added for each substitution and 30 seconds for each goal scored, that's before the time for any actual injuries.
This isn't complaining about the result today, I'm not sure we would have scored if we'd been playing for another half an hour, it's just that in England they seem to add on 4, 5, or 6 minutes at the end of a game. It seems to be quite a big difference.

3.) 13 May 2018 23:25:35
Would it be too difficult in this age of digital timepieces and and other ways of measuring time, to have someone somewhere pressing a button for every stop and start in play, and working out the added time, better make that two people of different persuasions to rule out any accusations of bias.

4.) 14 May 2018 08:15:22
The game yesterday was a nothing game as the players wouldn't want an injury before our hopefully history making game next Saturday. Hail Hail.

5.) 14 May 2018 21:09:44
Celtic team by their outstanding achievements last season and this deserve to be able to take their foot off the pedal in games of little importance . The vast majority of our supporters on forums and in our stands understand the need for the team to preserve some strength and enthusiam to a more important game.



21 Apr 2018 14:40:30
This Celtic team that is going fir a double treble are poor, nothing to boast about.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 15:52:39
We'll be doing a lot of boasting next Sunday 😂😂😂.

2.) 21 Apr 2018 16:38:28
I Daftybet, A poor team that has only lost 3 domestic games in 2 years, Get a grip of yourself man.
We had a poor game after last week, we will take the new club by 5 or 6 next week to win the league at home, I bet you will be crying into your cornflakes when we hump your team.

3.) 21 Apr 2018 21:56:44
Don’t think it’s a poor team but we have dropped points in 12 games this season in a league that isn’t high in quality

Stop living in the past with 3 losses in 2 years, last season is gone, this season is now and it’s been a poor one.

Far too many disruptions to the team, be it injuries or BR changing teams for the sake of it.

I can only recall at best 5 good domestic games this year and I hope it’s not a sign of things to come next season.

4.) 22 Apr 2018 10:29:23
Agree kev, that’s why I’m so frustrated. We can’t win more than a few games in a row. Jon away and boil your heid, I’m a Celtic man alright, I just don’t wear the green tinted specks like most other fans!

5.) 23 Apr 2018 23:29:05
Yes we are so poor that if we happen to win the SPL by some fluke and then go on to beat Motherwell in the SFA cup final, the only decent thing to do would be to stand aside and let Motherwell go up for the Cup . We should accept the runners up medals because some of our fans think we are poor .
Poor I remember the 90's we were poor, I remember the early 60's we were poor . I certainly don't relate B R 's team to those others.



11 Mar 2018 14:32:47
Rocking in here boys, brilliant hospitality and more importantly an easy win. Welshboy I have no do I you will gladly pay our charity bet. Hail Hail.




10 Mar 2018 19:23:33
Bed time for me boys. currently 4 hours ahead. Think Celtic will win by 2 clear goals. Hail Hail 🙌🇮🇪🇮🇪🇮🇪.


1.) 10 Mar 2018 21:33:58
Dafa: 4 hrs ahead post the result @ 10am tomorrow please :)

2.) 11 Mar 2018 09:23:10
Nice morning on the beach and getting ready to head to the Dubliner bar to sing and be merry with my fellow Celtic supporters. Even Timalloy would be welcome today. Hail Hail.



03 Mar 2018 17:00:09
Very pleased to win, the first half was awful even the manager said it. Early days but Compper looked slow, hopefully that will improve with games. Second half much better, Celtic without question can't seem to string two good half's or games together. Got a sneaky feeling we will win by a couple on Sunday, however we are miles below our performance standards from last year. Looking through today's posts it seems to fans are split over today's performance, I'm taking the positives.


1.) 03 Mar 2018 17:32:44
hope we do win by a couple . don't forget our wager lol.

2.) 03 Mar 2018 17:39:54
Got to agree with you, I thought first half was awful. Second better and Odsonne really lifted things (his miss was awful but hey) Early days for Compper but on basis of that performance he really can only get better. We seem to lack the aggression and drive that we had last season and in too many games this year we have looked rudderless, square balling and back passing. I don’t share your optimism about next week on basis of that first half today. We outclass Sevco from back to front but Ntcham probably cost more than that whole team this avo and they made us look pretty ordinary for first hour. Depending on what Celtic turns up next week we could struggle.

3.) 03 Mar 2018 19:48:59
Welshboy I hope I am handing you over the money. I think now Rangers have our full attention, yes we are much better player for player but we need to have the players performing. For me Sinclair is indelicate of our team this year. nowhere near our level. Hail Hail.

4.) 03 Mar 2018 20:02:50
charity bet mucker :)

I agree about sinclair tho u can see why brendan has persisted with him as we all know there's a player there. Agree with other posts we have to go with edouard next week at no point do we ever wanna be chasing a win we wanna be on the front foot from the off and put these zombies in their place HH

hendry ajer jozo commper
forrest brown ntchiam kouassi kt

{Ed007's Note - I don't think we'll be allowed to play with 12 players, Welshy.}

5.) 03 Mar 2018 20:13:43
haha just noticed that lol commper out then haha.

{Ed007's Note - I think it'll be the same formation and players as today except Rodgers must be thinking of playing Edouard instead of Sinclair in the 2 behind Dembele.}

6.) 03 Mar 2018 20:15:07
And that is him without a drink in a week too Ed 😂😂😁😁🍀.

If we go out on Wednesday I fear Brendan will walk. We can all feel that something is not right at the club. Already this could be a very long and hard season. Totally outplayed today and more worryingly out fought. No decent players coming in and the squad looks low on confidence.

For me we are selling the manager short, we have a bigger task than ever to make it to the champions league group stages and we have effectively turned a loan into a perminent move and lost 2 good players in Armstrong and paddy. We are also down Lustig, Boyata and Rogic, overall we are a much weaker side for our first qualifier.

Just when the pitch was looking brilliant as well. Looked like a bowling green. I know this was always planned.
