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.

5.) 10 Jan 2019 11:20:36
Good idea if young kt is Injured as long as he's good enough.

Evening Ed, do you know anything about Maryan Shved? Seen a site tonight claiming we're linked with him and he's been allowed to leave his winter training camp in the Ukraine to hold talks with a club with a view to a move. I believe he's a right winger.


{Ed007's Note - I'd think he is seen more as a possible summer signing when Burke and Weah return to their parent clubs.}

1.) 22 Jan 2019 12:51:13
ED does anyone know how long the work permit thing works or takes to process? Surely it doesn’t take that long cause we have potentially 3 players wait on it.

{Ed007's Note - Relax, Bayo has been granted a work permit and is now just awaiting his visa.}



12 Jan 2019 07:31:55
Read a quote from Brendan's interview yesterday which said " second half of the season is about bolstering our offensive options". Well we seem to have done that with Burke, Weah and the boy from the Ivory Coast however for me our defence is equally important . We have lustig and boyata free to sign pre contracts right now, good chance both will go, benkovic will definitely head back to Leicester I'd imagine, Ajer I'm more than happy with at centre half but we need experience in their also. I know we're looking like signing a LB &RB from the states again being projects. We need experience in these positions also. We can't keep depending on young inexperienced guys to get us by, especially with the amount of qualifiers we play to try get into the champions league. Really hope Brendan's got something going on behind the scenes in terms of the defence because if we lose lustig, boyata, benkovic I really fear if we think we can get by with replacing them with inexperienced 19 year olds.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 08:49:28
I think BR latest comments are another dig at the board.
I believe he isn't getting the targets he wants and that the club are once again in full control who comes in.
There has to be a balance of old and young. I understand maybe a project to come in at LB because we have KT. maybe even give Ralston a shot as number 1 RB.
However we need 2 dominant CHs with
some experience and l believe and 1in the middle of the park also.
BR comments mean the likes of wanyama coming in are all pie in the sky.
I also think it means we don't have the pot of cash we all think we should have.
I doesn't however mean that with good scouting we can't pick up some good players. the question is longer term will BR see it the same way.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 10:12:48
We have spent our cash on wages. Wage bill is absolutely huge. Not always about new signings- McGregor, rogic etc 5 years will have a price attached. Our wage bill is 3x that of The Rangers (although they are catching up! ) And Brendan has bought Haynes, Commper, Hendry, Kouassi and about 10 others who are a waste of a wages. We don't have a bottomless pit of funds- and Brendan has spent a lot. CB/ RB has been a problem for about 4 windows now- he hasn't solved it.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 10:24:36
It could be, we may have decided to go with the defensive players already here - Lustig, Ralston, Ajer, Simunovic, Boyata, Benkovic, KT, Izzy, Gamboa and even Bitton (and there are plenty options) .
Possibly because we would not get realistic bids in this window, with so many near the end of their contract or simply not desired enough?
I would have hoped for at least one decent defender coming in now in preparation for CL qualifiers with a few surplus players leaving to free-up the cash and as it's only Jan 12, it may still happen?

4.) 12 Jan 2019 18:18:59
I didn’t hear his interview what did BR say that suggested he was disappointed with backing from board?



07 Jan 2019 20:02:09
Evening Ed, just wondering your take on the two 6 month loan signings. Personally while I'm happy new players are coming in to freshen it up, I'm just a bit bewildered by it as come the summer they more than likely go back to they're respective clubs. I'm just hoping theirs a few permanent signings coming in in the defensive areas.


{Ed007's Note - It's just a complete waste of time for me.}



06 Jan 2019 08:24:12
Morning Ed, just a wee question regarding griffiths. I'm not on here to have a go at the guy as he's clearly got issues at the moment but what really is the truth with him do u know? From what I thought was the case is that Celtic have told him to take an indefinite break from football, stay away from Lennoxtown and Celtic Park, and keep a low profile yet this past week while after getting beat at Ibrox later that day he's sitting in the stands at Easter road watching Hibs, now there photos of him at the horse racing circulating yesterday. Doesn't look good when Celtic pay his wages, he's apparently got a gambling problem ( if that's true) and he's at the races? I might be the only one not privy to his real problems as there's all sorts of stories being branded about but for me he'd be better just keeping a low profile.


{Ed007's Note - I don't remember the Club telling LG to keep a low profile, Garry, why would they do that, and he will have handed in a sick-note just like every other employee? LG is suffering from depression and believe me the last thing you should do when suffering is lock yourself away from the world - that's just make your mood even worse. As far as I know a while back (I'm talking maybe 18 months/2 years ago) LG felt he was gambling too much and decided himself to knock it on the head for a while as he wasn't enjoying it, whether he went to GA or sought other help at the time is really nobody's business but his own.
Drug use, drinking too much, gambling too much, eating too much or too little can all be brought on through depression, there's some days you can't even be arsed getting out of bed or washing your face - that's the REALLY bad days that can drive people to do silly things. Days out with friends and family doing things you enjoy are encouraged by doctors and I doubt LG would be at horse-racing if he had any serious gambling problem, he would be dragged over the coals by his doctors, family & friends if that was the case so he wouldn't be standing posing for pictures, more likely he'd be there with a 'disguise' on trying to avoid cameras.
The best thing for LG is for everyone to stop speculating and give him the peace and time he needs to get better - and it does get better.
I'll just finish by saying to anyone reading this and struggling with mental health or an addiction don't let it all build up, talk to someone, anyone (even e-mail me if you aren't ready to talk to your doc or wife yet) the toughest thing is that first talk and asking for help but as soon as you do you're starting on the road to recovery 🙏

1.) 06 Jan 2019 16:17:53
Supposedly the racing picture was in October. Not that it matters.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 14:18:16
I said a simpler version of that earlier ed.
Now today Griffiths has came out and told everyone it has nothing to do with gambling or drink.
That should be the end of that.

3.) 06 Jan 2019 16:23:50
Well said ed excellent reply. As the BT advert said "it's good to talk" HH.

4.) 06 Jan 2019 16:31:13
Good on you ed👍.

5.) 06 Jan 2019 16:48:03
Well said Ed. You summer it up nicely. i've recently been diagnosed with PTSD and depression. Taking the first step and opening up is the hardest part.

6.) 06 Jan 2019 16:51:34
Well said Ed the problem with depression it leads to other problems and is not straight forward to solve my humble opinion is give him time and space and the occasional shout out on match days to let him know that 60k people give a dam. sorry Ed.

7.) 06 Jan 2019 17:37:01
Its just goes to prove the media has a disgusting agenda about club and will stoop to lows of telling lies about Griffiths who is clearly in a vunerable mental state.

Whats even more interesting is The Sun willing to print lies they have yet when i contacted them a few months about a convicted paedophille working as a fast food delivery driver in Dumbarton they were not interested. Nice to see they have priorities right.

8.) 06 Jan 2019 15:05:07
Good man ed.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers mate.}

9.) 06 Jan 2019 15:14:25
Excellent post Ed, really does put this illness in perspective and how to hit it head on.

{Ed007's Note - Taking the first step and talking is the hardest thing you might do in your life BUT it will also probably be the best as well.
To Pud, sorry to hear that mate, keep your chin up and keep on fighting - we're all here for you. God bless 🙏

10.) 06 Jan 2019 15:27:26
Best reply you have ever made Ed 👌🏻.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate.}

11.) 06 Jan 2019 16:45:22
Ed that is the best post I have seen from any person for many a year. You, like me, have suffered similar issues to Leigh and you direct no holds barred put down by anyone who doubts the impact MH can have on people and their families; is spot on. The need to build communication and enjoyment for someone suffering is key. at least that is how I try to deal with my demons. You sir are a credit to this site. 👊.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks very much for that mate, I go out to my mum's for dinner and come back to a serious pile of posts held for me on this thread so I will get through them all lads.

12.) 06 Jan 2019 17:44:07
You know where we are Pud👍.

13.) 06 Jan 2019 14:16:47
Great post ED.
Depression is a terrible thing to suffer from.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, JB.}

14.) 06 Jan 2019 15:00:24
Thanks for replying to my post Ed, just wanted to understand the truth in what’s actually going on rather than listening and reading all the nonsense. When I say about keeping a low profile, what I was actually meaning and probably didn’t explain myself properly was Leigh being who he is is always going to attract the vultures of the press up here and he’s quite well within his rights to live his life how he sees fit. Now he’s felt he’s had to respond to the nonsense being written about him then hopefully the press will now leave him be to recuperate and get better. I meant no malice or upset in my post or earlier post 👍🏻.

{Ed007's Note - There was nothing wrong with your post, Garry don't worry about that mate. I hope you didn't think I was having a pop at you btw?

15.) 06 Jan 2019 15:25:26
Great response Ed, your bang on the money with that.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

16.) 06 Jan 2019 16:16:44
Excellent post Ed.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, DJ.}

17.) 06 Jan 2019 18:59:06
Definitely didn’t think u were having a pop Ed, just wanted to know exactly what’s going on with Leigh. No one needs to buy papers to here the strries being branded about. Just hope he gets left alone now to focus on a speedy and full recovery mate.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

18.) 06 Jan 2019 21:11:28
Really well written Ed, well done.

Pud, small steps my friend.

At the end of the storm, there's a golden sky.


{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate.}

19.) 06 Jan 2019 23:23:27
Cheers Ed and malky.

See Celtic have tweeted that Oliver Burke has signed a 6 month loan due to a medical. who's next through the door?

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?




Click To View This Thread

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.

Just been reported to have arrived in Scotland tonight so he’s here. He shouldn’t be our main concern right now.

He’s certainly worth a shot malkybhoy. Never let us down yet in the games he’s played.

Best we can hope is to extend his loan deal. I’d have loved his loan to be in the same mould as the paddy Roberts loan, an 18 month loan minimum that gives him a right taste of Celtic and gives us a chance to see what he can really do over the course of a full season plus.

I’ve slaughtered Sinclair at times on here and yes he misses some chances but today he could’ve and should’ve had at least 4/ 5 goals himself. His pen I thought was poor and the offside goal for me was as shocking an offside decision as your ever likely to see, not even close to being offside. He is frustrating at times I get that, what I would say is he gets himself into those positions to have the chance in the first place.

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.
