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.


1.) 10 Jan 2019 08:04:58
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.

Good idea if young kt is Injured as long as he's good enough.

The performance today was a disgrace, but it's not just today. On Celtic v rangers games this season we've been far from convincing. Both games at ibrox we're a disgrace, decembers was bad but today's was even worse, the 2-1 game at Parkhead aswell was rotten, particularly second half against 10 men although we did get the win that day. What was Lennons thinking in his tactics today? His substitutions were shocking aswell. The players? Those players today to a man need to take a long hard look at themselves. If they think that by wrapping up the title last week they can go to our rivals and put that sort of performance in and it's acceptable then they're wrong. no one likes losing but my god idmf your going to lose lose with a bit of dignity, a bit of fight, those players showed absolutely nothing today. simply unacceptable.


1.) 12 May 2019 16:25:07
Garry one of the lads on the live chat said weeks ago that Lennon won't make a sub until 62 minutes unless an injury has ocurred and I've watched it ever since. It's like clock work.

2.) 12 May 2019 23:46:41
The 47-year-old Cocu, who only took over in June, has seen Fenerbahce, one of the country's traditional footballing powerhouses, slump to 15th in the Turkish Super League, just one spot above the relegation zone.

Just saying kev.



11 May 2019 07:05:43
But confused on here with some comments regarding Lennon and the next managerial appointment. Yes it's all about opinions and Lennons not everyone's cup of tea for the full time job, but I'm reading comments about his style of play etc etc. while we were winning games ( just like Lennon mostly has since coming in) watching Rodgers team since the start of the season hasn't been great either. Truth being told yes results don't lie, but the football we've watched most of this season compared to the past two years has been poor, during the first half of this season under Rodgers and also since Lennon came in. Remember this though, Lennon is working with Rodgers players, keeping it to the style Rodgers has continually played. Now if Lennon gets the job ( or whoever it is) there will be new signings, players leaving, what we're watching right now won't be the team we watch next season. So while we've got him and while he's leading the team get behind him and the club and come the summer what will be will be.


1.) 11 May 2019 08:16:27
Do you think Lennon is a better manager than Rodgers? Have Leicester missed a trick paying 9m?

2.) 11 May 2019 08:42:31
Rodgers is a one trick pony. Tactics are always the same style. Similar to Wenger when plan A doesn't work u are screwed.

Rodgers is a great coach though.

Lennon although not necessarily a better manager has got further in Europe with Celtic than Rodgers even could with Liverpool.

As for the boring football comments. Strachan played boring football and our crowd was split on him.

Strachan was a better manager than Rodgers. By a long way.

3.) 11 May 2019 09:04:13
It would seem some on here are desperate for something to beat lenny with, he's a bad manager now because weah wants to go to under 20 wc, the boy wouldn't have played in the final anyway we all know that, but still never look a gift horse and all that.

4.) 11 May 2019 10:30:41
With half the Celtic fans not wanting Lenny, that's him getting it in the neck from 3 quarters of the city, which I feel is cruel and too much for someone to have to deal with.
If he does get the managers job those same fans are going to be continually over critical, which I feel is unfair and if I was him I would get out.
If he does go and we take a gamble on a Paul LeGuen type and it starts to go wrong, the meltdown from those same spoiled Celtic fans will be huge and it will effect our chances of 10 in a row bigtime.
Lenny needs to look after his family because I don't think he will get a fair crack of the wip from all Celtic fans, which I feel is a shame.

5.) 11 May 2019 12:13:52
What's the fuss about Weah, the lad wanted to play in the opening game of the world cup, that will mean more to him than appearing in a Scottish cup final, that's very understandable, Lenny was right to let him go and join the squad.

6.) 11 May 2019 12:18:01
Leon your making this sound like all Celtic fans have it in for Lenny. Every Celtic fan has Lennys back me included but that does not mean we have to want him as our new manager. He will get full backing like he always does until our last game of the season. He will get it in the neck from zombies, not us. Everyone, or should i say some people on here are making out like he was our saviour in our hour of need like it was some kind of chore or inconvenience to come manage the club he loves. He was out of work and we would not have asked him to come in had he still been at Hibs. a lot of people on here need to remove their green tinted specs. Love the man yes, a club legend yes, new manager no.

7.) 11 May 2019 12:35:18
Tell that to the critics on here the boy is quoted saying he wanted to go but it's lennys fault.



07 May 2019 22:12:12
Woah, just woah, what a result for Liverpool tonight. Thoroughly deserved over both legs.


1.) 07 May 2019 22:21:13
Where are all the Messi slaverers tonight?

2.) 07 May 2019 22:21:43
Modern coaches are all about the pass and possession.

They call any form of physical football "ignorant"

Barca got done tonight and a huge factor was Liverpool being too physically strong.

Shoulder tackles was like watching an adults side vs a kids team. Bullied.

3.) 07 May 2019 23:26:04
As much as I hate ajax I really hope they win it now.

4.) 08 May 2019 08:48:38
Henrik does the fact Barcelona got turned over last night make his achievements or how good a player he's been any less?
I wouldn't say so and I prefer Ronaldo.

5.) 08 May 2019 11:08:25
I've never said he's not a great player. But what did he do last night? Greats like Zidane would have rallied his side, all they needed was a goal. Between him and Suarez, I was glad they got pumped.

6.) 08 May 2019 14:58:18
Henrik if greats like zidane would always rallied their side's how come he lose games?

7.) 08 May 2019 16:29:01
Sorry for slagging your precious Messi, but what exactly did he do last night to inspire his team to find the goal they needed? Nothing. He was useless last night. How come he lost games? What a stupid comment.



04 May 2019 06:04:25
Read an interview with broony this morning where he says he hopes the Celtic support will one day forgive Brendan and welcome him back at Celtic Park, how great he did in his time at Celtic etc etc. Hard to argue with what he won for us in his time here and I think you'd struggle to find a fan that would criticise his win rate and trophy haul, however I wouldn't hold my breath broony on waiting on that day coming anytime soon. Brendan walked out on us at a crucial stage of the season, any Celtic diehard, minded person wouldn't have done that, no way, and that is what stuck and still sticks in the throat of most fans I'd say. The work needed done to the team come the summer also I feel is huge. We've got some fantastic players but for me Brendan also left us in a bit of a state. We've accumulated so much dead wood it's unreal, mixed in with loan signings and out of contract players, were potentially looking at the possibility of up to 10/ 12 players that will/ could leave with I'd suggest 5/ 6 MUST key signings. For me out goes de vries, gamboa, Izzy, commper, hendry, boyata, ( possibly lustig) , benyu, kouassi, Allan, Benkovic, weah and Burke. That's just 13 players off the top of my head either loans, out of contract or just not good enough to be there, coming in your looking at a CB, RB, cover at LB for tierney, possibly another GK, ST, a creative midfielder, and depending on Sinclair leaving or not ( and I know Shved is coming in) another LW. That's just my thinking others may want signings in other areas. My point is yeah Rodgers brought us success and I'll be forever grateful for it, but he's also jumped ship at a crucial stage and left us with I feel the biggest overhaul of the squad I can remember at the one time in many a year.


1.) 04 May 2019 10:21:05
Only he knows why he left us so abruptly - although cash would have been a big factor - instead of trying to achieve an historical achievement that would probably never have been beaten?
His relationship with PL was obviously very strained and it may have been aimed at him in particular, or he may have been pushed?
Whatever, the circumstances, it's all confined to the 'secrecy clause' and may never be fully explained or understood.
It still hurts the support and obviously the players and the untimely exit could have sabotaged the whole season if it wasn't for the mental strength and determination of the players and of course NL stepping in to calm the storm and keep us on course.
No matter who The Board appoint in the summer; The Celtic support will always remember those who carried on through turbulent times and never forget those who turned their back and betrayed us.



07 Apr 2019 07:03:07
Morning lads, just a wee question in general. when was the last time you's watched a Celtic game and we're happy with the all round performance? I'm not talking about results, yes the results are important especially last Sunday's, but I'm talking about a right good 90 minute performance? . this isn't me looking to have s go at Lennon by the way it's just an observation. For me it's been sometime that I've been able to say after a game " that was the complete all round performance and score line". we've one hell of s job on our hands come this summer regardless of who the next manager will be. I just want us to mathematically get this title and semi final wrapped up so then maybe it will become more clearer as to who will be in charge come next season. We've a hellava lot of players that will or should be leaving with for me at least 6/ 7 better quality players needed brought in.


1.) 07 Apr 2019 07:37:08
I don't know but for the first time yesterday I was thoroughly bored with the performance. When are we going to set up for these kind of games? It was a guarantee that Livi would come and park the bus. Boring!

2.) 07 Apr 2019 10:08:00
We need the whole team freshened up it's getting stale plus we have a raft if players jyst back from injury trying to find there feet. can only improve guys like ntcham and rogic will get better with games.

3.) 07 Apr 2019 13:11:55
No matter who gets the job a lot of money will be needed to rebuild, a lot of players leaving and a few brought in PL will not be a happy man I think.

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.

18 Jan 2019 10:30:10
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.

18 Jan 2019 07:39:00
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?

10 Jan 2019 16:49:56
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.

100% Correct chrisbhoy7 in the areas you mention needing addressed. Most fans can see it so surely the powers that be see it aswell. Big big summer coming up in terms of management and signings. I still maintain from the power of strength and financial position we’re in we shouldn’t be a team needing so much work needing done. The past couple of windows have been a nightmare and it’s coming back to haunt us big time now. I know some will say this is a massive over reaction to yesterday’s result but it’s not, the teams needing fresh blood and hopefully yesterday was the moment mr Desmond and co realised what needs done this summer.

We watched a very similar performance at ibrox in December only this performance was worse. Some people said last week we should play the under 20s at ibrox and minimise the risk of injuries. Well after watching that yesterday, at least the under 20s would’ve shown desire, commitment, no fear, and gave everything for the 90 minutes. We got none of that from those players yesterday and given the huge salaries they’re on they should reimburse every one of the 800 fans who paid to go watch that shambolic performance. It was bad enough to watch decembers shambles but to then go back there yesterday and put in a worse performance isn’t acceptable.

Said the same as you Leon bhoy, a blind man could see Johnstone was out his depth. Not the boys fault but he needs to go out on loan for a season or two, just like mcgregor and Christie had to do. Johnstone could easily been replaced by Sinclair at half time and I don’t think anyone could’ve complained, yet Lennon waits till they score the second before making that change? Couldn’t believe it. Then you’ve rogic, a guy that flatters to deceive. He could’ve been hooked at halftime anaw, could count on one hand how many touches he had in the first half but Lennon doesn’t replace him till the 70 th odd minute? Absolute shambles of a performance and shambolic management today for me.

How has weah been hung out to dry? There’s two sides of a story, if u read weah’s then yeah I agree with u 100%, but have you read Celtic and Lennons side of the story? If indeed weah was given an opportunity to represent his country but also return to take part in the cup final and refused that scenario then for me Lennon was right to tell him to go now. If weah felt for the club and fans as he made out then he’d have jumped on a plane straight back to Glasgow for the final and been part of a team going for the treble treble, instead ( if the story reported today is true) he’s let us down badly. Poor man management? Na not for me, too many people right now want to bash Lennon with a stick. Fair enough he’s not everyone’s cup of tea for the full time job, but he’s Celtic through and through, if he’s sent weah packing ( and I liked the kid) he’s done it with good reason and celtics best interests at heart. I’d also suggest he’d probably have had to get the boards backing aswell given he’s only intern manager at this stage.
