Big Boyata signs for Hertha Berlin, don't let the door hit your arse on the way out.


1.) 19 May 2019 13:03:27
GOOD RIDDANCE! HIGHLY OVERRATED. We have better defenders at the club. No big loss IMO.

2.) 19 May 2019 14:22:34
Still can't believe we turned down £9m. Should have accepted that even if he was under contract for another 18 months. Ridiculous decision.

3.) 19 May 2019 17:20:12
Booed when collecting his medal and rightly so lol.

4.) 19 May 2019 17:54:12
Most on here defended him and Rodgers when he was allowed back in the side.

He shouldn't have wore the jersey again. Another failure of Rodgers. Happy for players to disrespect our club.

We soon found out why, as he is a snake himself.



15 May 2019 19:24:09
Apparently Celtic are going all for Rafa, talks have taken place with terms agreed. Hopefully this is our level of ambition.


1.) 15 May 2019 19:53:41
Hope this is true.

2.) 15 May 2019 20:10:11
No point in us pushing the boat out for Rafa if Lawwell then palms him off with a Ronny Deila transfer budget, if we aim for a top class manager our board need to back him properly to bring in the quality of player he wants .

3.) 15 May 2019 21:07:19
He won't have much choice as half the squad will probably be away.

4.) 15 May 2019 21:15:47
Holy god it's getting bad on here.

Benitez rumours getting stronger by the hour, bookies have him odds on and they are never wrong, they even have the UK favourite to win Eurovision Song Contest, not that I be watching.

Rafa rumours are why you never see a bookie running for a bus.

10.) 16 May 2019 01:36:27
I hope that's true, the board have surprised before with old horse gnashers. Dare to dream?

11.) 16 May 2019 09:58:25
According to reports, Rasfa is meating Ashley today to discuss a new deal.

12.) 16 May 2019 10:42:11
Was hearing the same thing about Rafa, apparently offered him a contract and he has until Monday to accept it. Was hearing as well that the sports science guy that BR brought in has been appalled at the way Lennon has been running things, especially giving the players time off to go to Ireland on the lash then not getting back into training until the Thursday before the Rangers game. Could be why they looked so jaded on Sunday? .

13.) 16 May 2019 11:24:10
Whoever it is, the board need to reign this circus in, especially after seeing Lennon in the paper today!

If its not Lennon then we need the replacement announced now, otherwise I feel a minority will be stood singing '1 Neil Lennon' come cup final day. The others will fear that singing his name will encourage the board to give him the job.

I love Lenny, but this is becoming a farce!

14.) 16 May 2019 12:53:39
Teflon, I have to admit I was a bit surprised to read on here that the squad had went 'to Dublin on a piss up'. Dublin is a great piss up I must say. But, and without knowing what sort of night it was or the restrictions on the players, it seemed like the wrong thing to do for me. A couple bevvies back at the club sure. But if its true they were on the lash over there and didn't train until thursday then that's wrong. The league wasn't over. Dead rubber or not playing Rangers is a big game. And we should have wanted as much momentum as possible going towards a cup final for a treble. Quite simply our season was far from over.

15.) 16 May 2019 15:31:13
Is that not what happened the last time he was here? Giving players time off, not training half the week, some players and coaches turning up for training still half pissed from the night before.
I know it's all hearsay but this is exactly why he should never have been brought back.

16.) 16 May 2019 16:13:58
Just been told Rafael Benitez will sign 3 year deal after cup final superb
To say standards have slipped since Lenny took charge would be an understatement, by all accounts Jack Nayler (Head of Sports Science) has been appalled by the way Lenny has treated the philosophy that was in place, so much so that Nayler and Lennon don't even correspond with each other anymore. I think Nayler will be heading to Leicester anyway come the Summer right enough.

Players are now having a multitude of off days like they weren't having before, even on the days after a match all the players would be at Lennoxtown, with the players that started the match having a recovery session whilst the other squad players would train well. This week, after the victory against Aberdeen, Lennon let the players choose between heading to Dublin for a piss up, or having a few days somewhere of their choosing, so after a three day piss up, the players were all told to turn up to Lennoxtown on Wednesday morning for a half day training session, before going to Stevie Chalmers funeral. Full training then commenced on Thursday and Friday, no wonder we were jaded as **** in the game.

The above is what was sent to me this morning.



10 Jan 2019 18:59:43
Timothy Fosu Mensha signing for Celtic, 6.8 million deal agreed.


1.) 10 Jan 2019 19:15:07
Dafabet: where are you hearing this?

2.) 10 Jan 2019 19:19:06
Is he even any gd?

3.) 10 Jan 2019 19:20:58
Where u seen this dafa?

4.) 10 Jan 2019 19:30:57
Isn’t he a defencesive midfielder.

5.) 10 Jan 2019 19:42:07
How sure are u Dafabet?

6.) 10 Jan 2019 19:42:11
He's a Centre Half.
And not a very good one from what iv seen.
Id be bit gutted if we spend that amount of cash on him to be honest!

7.) 10 Jan 2019 19:56:01
He's a RB, been on loan at Fulham. Price may be a bit much still not bad a player for his age.

8.) 10 Jan 2019 19:57:31
He not on loan at Fulham?

9.) 10 Jan 2019 19:58:10
It's on HITC. com.
I actually think he has plenty potential, speed power and versatile, can play def mid, CB or RB.
Rodgers could probably unlock a great player here, but Leeds look interested in getting him on loan for their title push.

10.) 10 Jan 2019 20:03:40
A thought he was a full back although am sure.

11.) 10 Jan 2019 20:51:27
Think this is bs fokes but would absolutely love him exactly the type of right back we a screaming out for HH.

12.) 10 Jan 2019 20:51:32
Haha that site should be shut down.

13.) 10 Jan 2019 20:54:14
No chance we are paying that sort of money when he's out of contract in the summer.

14.) 10 Jan 2019 21:07:34
He is on loan at Fulham but want to end it early.
He is a RB from Man U, a report in Newsnow says we MUST sign him, just a part time journo telling us what we should be doing.

15.) 10 Jan 2019 22:31:40
Agent Kevin strikes again!

16.) 10 Jan 2019 22:33:10
Originated from a nonsense account on twitter. Not happening.

17.) 10 Jan 2019 23:27:28
He plays LB CB OR DM. The story was an opinion piece not one saying we were signing him.



13 Jul 2018 12:53:22
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.

Brown what a servant, time to go to pasture.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 22:53:18
Why is it time for him to go to pasture as you say dafabet, he played well tonight . I for one am glad he’s with us, still need him around . Everyone knows what he gives us on and off the pitch, in fact I’d be surprised if he went to Australia as it will be burning away at him, his and the teams performance at their dome.

Does anyone on here think that he will want that picture of the people giving it to him to be an iconic moment for them in the season. He’s too much of a competitor for that. He won’t be happy til he’s pictured standing over them, probably with another league medal in his hands. Too many people want to write him off too early.



05 Dec 2018 21:46:10
How we drew that game I will never know. Perfectly good goal chopped off and we missed a pen. For me it's a must that we get a new striker in this window.


1.) 05 Dec 2018 22:56:41
I don't know why Griffith's even hits the pen. Christie and Ntcham both scored penalties recently, so Griffiths shouldn't be near it. Knew he was going to miss, he and Sinclair hurried their pens in the last 2 games. Christie is the player in form, he should take it.

2.) 05 Dec 2018 23:27:25
Agree can't see much wrong with the goal chopped off (expected) but that penalty was shocking and agree both rushed their penalties which is uncharacteristic of both players.



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.

Worst Celtic performance I have seen in many a year, not one player got pass marks. Take the luck and move on, massive improvement required. We desperately need a new first choice striker. No squad players please gaffer.
