Some reports this morning about the boy Andrew Gutman from the U. S possibly coming in. Apparently had a trial with rangers earlier in the season. With reports regarding Tierney and his hip problems, this one could be a possibility, not seen anything of this guy right enough.

Not sure about this guy if They had a look and didn’t want him well why would that make him an ideal prospect for us?


2.) 10 Jan 2019 08:37:40
Reports say that they did offer him a deal but so did we.


3.) 10 Jan 2019 08:46:36
Chat I've heard Rich was they did want him but he is choosing us over them.


4.) 10 Jan 2019 08:52:59
Rich they offered him a deal.

Morning ED, just wondering if you've heard how Leigh griffiths is getting on?

Garryc1977

{Ed007's Note - I haven't mate, sorry.}


1.) 01 Mar 2019 12:08:05
Ntcham, Benkovic and LG should all be close to getting back and hopefully we will have Rogic, Christie and Cal-Mac before the end of March as well? No doubt the way things have been going we will pick up another injury or two before then, but I'm sure the returning players will want to show NL what they can do as soon as possible.


2.) 01 Mar 2019 16:06:02
Ntcham will be on Rodgers radar and Benkovic could be called back early . Its what sewer rats do.


3.) 01 Mar 2019 19:42:32
Can't call him back now window is shut.

Can't believe we're allowing Rodgers permission to speak to Leicester at this stage of the season. I've no problem with him leaving come the summer but right now? If he does indeed take the Leicester job which looks likely, the Celtic board have huge questions to answer. Typical board, see a few pound signs and think of the dough. If this does go through Lawwell and co better hope Lennon or whoever comes in gets this title over the line or there will be serious rumblings from the fans.

Garryc1977

1.) 26 Feb 2019 09:10:00
Serious rumblings? It would be a colossal f*ck up! Not impressed at all by this news he could be leaving mid season. And Lennon better not be the clubs idea of a permanent replacement by the way!


2.) 26 Feb 2019 09:12:21
Garry what choice to the board have?
Refuse permission and he quits and then court cases?
Or he sticks it out ain't happy and we lose the league.
Nothing to do with pound signs.


3.) 26 Feb 2019 09:42:43
It’s got everything to do with pound signs . It’s not the first club that’s refused a manager permission to speak to a club. You telling me rodgers would down tools, at a club he supposedly loves as his own because we refuse him to talk to Leicester? The board should stand strong, tell him he can go by all means but it won’t be before the summer.


4.) 26 Feb 2019 09:48:52
It is all to do with last summer transfer window, the damage was done then and has been well hidden, what I mean by that is the fact that the first half decent opportunity that comes up, he is considering taking it. His love for Celtic is beyond doubt and even the honnour of a treble treble or taking us to 10 in a row is not enough to keep him, the questions must be asked of Mercers Desmond and Lawell, they did the same to Lenny, pulling the money from under his feet. We really have to question the ambition of our board, or rather maybe the business model which suits them and shows scant regard for us supporters. BR will no doubt be given pots of money by them to win the FA/ League cup.
I hope the board will do as much as possible to try and keep him.


5.) 26 Feb 2019 09:56:41
Got this totally wrong; who could had seen this happening outside the Celtic Boardroom? Very disappointed in the news and timing.
Wonder how Desmond feels about his Messiah taking the 30 pieces?


6.) 26 Feb 2019 09:56:51
Let's be honest it's not the board fault here. Rogers clearly want to go otherwise he would have said no thanks. All the board do is say Leicester have made contact and the rest is up to the manager. He clearly isn't happy at Celtic if he thinks Leicester is a better place for him.


 

 

26 Feb 2019 05:47:32
With all this press talk about Leicester and Brendan Rodgers, id like Celtic as a club and Brendan to come out today and put this to bed. Tell Leicester Brendan is going nowhere or even Brendan to come out and say " listen I'm flattered being linked to the job but whilst there's been no contact between the clubs, i wouldn't be interested anyway, I'm more than happy where I am and totally focused on winning the title again this season". Something along those lines puts this to bed and we move on. According to sly, Martinez has done something similar and ruled him myself out.

Garryc1977

1.) 26 Feb 2019 07:06:55
That’s not going to happen though is it. He’s off. Maybe not now, but definitely the Summer. I’m just shocked that so many fans are surprised that he’d want to leave after what happened in the transfer window last Summer. The McGinn shambles was the last straw. I’m surprised he didn’t walk then.


2.) 26 Feb 2019 07:29:43
With the huge number of players out of contract/ end of loan at the end of the season I wouldn't be surprised if BR has asked for assurances on how much he's got to rebuild the squad. If the figure doesn't fill him with hope he might not fancy the challenge of rebuilding it on a shoestring budget. Which would then look like Clarke would be the ideal man to take over. He won't leave unless there's a bigger job for him to walk in to. I can't see him getting any of the top 5 clubs purely down to his poor record in Europe.


3.) 26 Feb 2019 07:33:17
I’m not so sure he’ll even leave in the summer mate. Kennedy came out at the weekend saying rodgers is already working on next season. I do get anything can happen, that’s why I’d like the club to come out in no uncertain terms and declare what Brendan’s intentions are and draw a line under this situation and chase the press onto another story letting us concentrate on getting this title over the line.


4.) 26 Feb 2019 08:38:38
bravetart, RE your point about rebuilding due to loans and players out of contract.

would you guys trust rodgers with the money needed to rebuild? undoubtedly he is a good man manager but his record when it come to buying players is atrocious ( and not only at celtic ) . i don't think PL will back him as he knows this

add in the points about not being able to advance in europe and won everything he has in domestic then i think he will walk away

as for Clarke, i think he is too thin skinned for the job if his recent behaviour is anything to go by. can you imagine him taking the abuse lennon got, the bullets etc? i thin khe would be a bad choice.


5.) 26 Feb 2019 08:44:19
Looks like he's off just now.


 

 

15 Feb 2019 07:35:42
Last night performance again in Europe was dire to say the least. I've slaughtered Sinclair on here at times but he was by far our best player last night yet BR saw fit to whip him off? On the other side we had Forrest who up until maybe the 70th minute hardly touched the ball. Could we not maybe have took Forrest of instead and pushed Burke wide and still bring in edouard and left Sinclair on? Also the tactics in Europe need addressed. We're trying to play the same way as we do domestically, against better opposition and getting punished big time. How many times last night was the ball going too and fro across the back line, going from Bain to brown and back again, almost getting caught out on a few occasions totally inviting pressure onto ourselves. This at that level needs to change, we don't have the personnel with the quality to carry that style out in Europe and the results since Brendan's cane in prices this. I've said it time and again, we've a massive job in the summer sorting that defence out and to be in a situation in any window where we're needing possibly 6/ 7 signings is not good enough. From the financial position and winning situation we're in the past 7 years we should be making 2/ 3 quality additions each window not needing to sign 5/ 6/ 7 players.

Garryc1977

1.) 15 Feb 2019 09:57:20
Good post garry thatt would have been my shout or just take Burke off and leave Forrest because he had started getting past them but Burke was way off it he might get away with playing no9 in Scottish game but not at that level he hardly showed for the ball and av no idea what Christie was doing he hardly touched either.


2.) 15 Feb 2019 13:00:17
Christie last night was way out his depth for me mally. Definitely a player there and with experience should progress but not yet at that level. It’s so frustrating, I get Valencia are in a better league, more expensive players etc but I just feel yet again we failed to compete. For me I always thought we’d go out this round, mainly down to our away record in Europe but really thought we could’ve won that game last night maybe a 2-1 or so but it just didn’t look like we competed, on top of that we’ve players that couldn’t pas a ball 10 yards at times without finding an opposition player, and this passing across the back then back again, at least twice I can remember last night us nearly being caught out by our own messing about. We can do that domestically but not in Europe against quality opposition, we inevitably get punished, so frustrating mate.


 

 

10 Feb 2019 15:33:39
Great performance from the bhoys today. Some really nice football, good goals and even in the few occasions we didn't have the ball we chased it down and got it back rapid. Sinclair was brilliant, Burke looks superb, overall a really good day. Roll on Thursday night.

I think u could be right kev with the thinking of maybe getting who he really wants in the summer but McKenna? I’m not convinced he’s any better than Ajer. Infact I’d say Ajer is a much better prospect than Mckenna. I’m with one of the other posts, if possible get as good a centre back as we can right now and drop boyata if he’s not staying. I’m not buying this “ any centre half we bring in right now would have to wait to play”. why? If boyata isn’t hanging around then he’s out for me.

If boyata doesn’t sign an extension which seems highly unlikely but not impossible then what message does that send to Ajer and jozo? It tells me that at the moment, Ajer, jozo and hendry are 3rd 4th and 5th choice. Going by that assumption if boyata leaves in the summer along with benkovic which I think most anticipate then whoever comes in will be looking to play straight away. I get to an extent why brendan will play boyata till the summer if no one in that position comes in this month but if I’m Ajer and jozo I’m thinking “ I’m not that well thought of when a guy that’s running his deal down, walking away for heehaw, is still playing before me”. If come the end of January and no new CB is brought in then I’d play Ajer ahead of boyata.

If that’s true kev I’m very disappointed. Benkovic will almost certainly go back to Leicester in the summer. It looks like boyata is being allowed to run his contract down. when both are fit they are Brendan’s preferred pairing, outwith Ajer I don’t think brendan really rates the rest. Unless something is already in place for 1 or 2 CBs to come in in the summer I think it’s a big gamble as they European ties don’t half come around fast.

After the summer shambles with boyata I was dead against him playing for us again, however in the main since then he’s been superb ( outwith that Ibrox game where everyone of them except McGregor was rotten) . That said, it really needs addressed this window, he either signs a deal or we need to replace him. If we can’t get a replacement in then for me he has to drop out and Ajer/ jozo takes his place till we get another centre half in. We can’t continue to play him if brendan knows he’s definitely going to leave. What message does that send to Ajer/ jozo?

I’d be very surprised if another striker comes in now. Like most I’m concerned with the defence, up until now unless things change, boyata will be off in the summer, benkovic will go back to Leicester, for me we’re desperate for a right solid, hopefully experienced Centre half if not two, cover at LB as Izzy clearly isn’t fancied after the Ibrox carry on and definitely a RB. Gamboa will likely go, hendry I’m not convinced by, jozo, I don’t think brendan fancies him when they’re all fit and lustigs best days are behind him. Defence for me has to be priority now after the 3 signings we’ve just made.

I was one of the fans slaughtering Sinclair earlier in the season and I’m big enough to admit I was wrong. Like many pointed out on here his goal return is great considering he’s not a striker, yes he floats in and out of games and frustrates at times as we all know what he’s capable of on his game. When he’s got the ball running direct at the defenders taking them on, that’s the Sinclair I love to see. Definitely without a doubt we should be looking to extend his contract. Wether he’d sign up again who knows but it certainly needs to be offered.

Actually prefer Bain to Gordon. Good shot stopper, can come and collect a ball and can actually pass the ball out better than Gordon for me.

His explanation to his departure doesn’t wash. Leicester wouldn’t wait? Well sorry brendan it’s Leicester, they want u that bad they’d have waited till the summer it’s that simple and if they didn’t and he’d went on to win the double or treble treble I’m more than confident he’d have gotten a bigger club than Leicester. All this bull about leaving us in a good position is bull as well, yeah we’re 8 clear and in a quarter final but unless I’m wrong the don’t hand trophies out at that stage. There’s hard work still to be done which he turned his back on. Plus how short is his memory? We’ve a wage bill that would choke a horse and more than half a squad that are earning right good dough and we need shot of. De vries, benyu, Compper, gamboa, Lustig, boyata, Allan, kouassi, Izzy, Benkovic, weah Burke. there’s 12 first team squad members that will either go back to they’re respective clubs or move on due to contracts being up or need shipped out cause they’ve done nothing in the time they’ve been here. Our whole defence ( with the exception of tierney) needs replaced. What a job he’s left for whoever the next manager is, bearing in mind we all bang on about getting things sorted in advance of the summer due to the European ties coming around thick and fast. It’s hard enough qualifying for the champions league these days without a manager having to come in and straight off deal with that. Yes Brendan you gave us the high of the invincible season, the double treble but you S##t all over your legacy with what you’ve done!

Welcome mate, hard to disagree with most of what you said. The thing with Rodgers and why people are fuming is it isn’t so much that he’s away, that day was always coming. It was the way in which he done it mate, that’s where the bitterness comes in, but like u say it’s done now we must move on and the boys done fantastically well to get those 3 points last night. Wasn’t a great performance but with what’s gone on the last 48 hours and being at Tynecastle it was always going to be tough. roll on Saturday now at Easter road.
