Ryan Christie signing a four year deal before end of the month. M. L. two year extension. HH

Seen that rumour on Twitter. As this is called Celtic Rumours I thought I would stick it up. If true 2yr extension for Lustig seems strange.

He'd be very decent back-up for a new RB Hoopy.

In all my years of watching Celtic I have had many disappointments when big players leave the club for big money offers, mainly in England. Macari, Dalglish, McClair, Nicolas and in more recent times, Forster, Wanyama, Van Dyke. It’s really encouraging that we’re holding onto the majority of our stars these days and I suspect that’s down to BR. It’s also encouraging that the board are willing to sanction the increase in the wage bill we’ve seen as a result of this. Holding onto guys like Lustig, Izzaguirre, Biton, Hayes etc. are an important part of maintaining our strength in depth.

Christie out of contract in the summer. Do we offer a new contract or is this the type of squad player we have to get off the wage bill?

23yrs young had a good 45minutes yesterday but over all his Celtic career is non existent.


1.) 29 Oct 2018 10:16:12
He's in negotiations with the club already.

2.) 29 Oct 2018 10:33:40
There's many in front of him in the queue to get punted. Tbf he's spent a fair bit of his Celtic career on loan where he was a regular with the sheep, it would be foolish to punt him now. Hopefully he can make the same impact now that McGregor did after he spent a few seasons on loan at Notts county I think it was.

3.) 29 Oct 2018 10:34:14

My Bhoy set the heather on fire at Aberdeen. He’s the real deal and has to stay and become a legend. Watch out McGregor Tierney and Forrest. Here he comes.

Check out my latest post about UEFA Scots players requirements too.

4.) 29 Oct 2018 11:22:36
It was good to see him make such an impact as up until now he has been unable to establish himself under different Celtic managers.
However, with so many midfield players in the squad we really need to off-load quite a few (including sending one or two out on loan) .
We are crying out for an Armstrong type player and although, Christie is a bit lightweight, he really got involved yesterday and must have impressed the manager, his team-mates and the support. Well done.

5.) 29 Oct 2018 11:23:21
On that form if he can maintain it definitely but he needs a good run of games.



25 Oct 2018 16:45:55
Celtic team to play RB Leipzig:

Gordon, Šimunovic, Gamboa, Morgan, Christie, Boyata, Ntcham, Edouard, McGregor, Tierney (C) , Kouassi

Going to be a long night. Then again some of Celtic best results over the years is when we have been written off. HH.

A fantastic solo goal from Karamoko Dembele as Celtic continue their relentless start! .

Young Karamoko scores his first for the Reserves. 15yrs old a special talent. Hope he picks career development over money when the time comes.


1.) 23 Oct 2018 16:54:12
I hope so too. I think we'll need to get him in and around the first team as soon as he's old enough though as sadly, he can get career development elsewhere playing with reserves.



18 Sep 2018 09:28:57
Read George Peats comments in today's press. he's not saying who the unnamed chairman is who asked that no help should be giving to old Rangers in 2008.

Hope it was the Celtic chairman. At least they were fighting the club's corner. No-one helped us in 2003 and we had every right to argue the case.

Didn't make much difference as old Rangers got their extension. Backfired though as they lost the UEFA cup final and we won the league.

Tommy Burns Thursday was one of the greatest highlights I've had following Celtic. That night inside Tannadice was amazing.


1.) 18 Sep 2018 11:06:30
I sincerely hope it was the Celtic chairman that made the call. Not that it done much good they still got their extension even though it was them that asked for a game earlier in the season to be postponed so they could prepare for a Euro tie, also if I remember correctly they had a spare midweek a few months earlier that they refused to use for a fixture. Personally i think it was a scandal they got the 4 day extension.

2.) 18 Sep 2018 12:42:54
The establishment are rotten to the core with Sevco sympathizers, secret hand-shakers and split loyalties by biased member chairmen.
The bottom line is that this and similar topics should not even up for discussion if the club/ team liquidated in 2012 had been properly dispersed and not allowed a back-door pass under a fake I. D. -
never mind the ongoing fallacy of this same club and stadium pish.
TRIFC 2012 should have been made to start afresh under their real identity and any 'Rangers' references should be resigned to history; like Arnott and Simpson, Azad Video, Woolworth, M F I, Pizzaland, Gretna FC and Third Lanark.

3.) 18 Sep 2018 15:35:16
And who was sfa president when sevco were cheating there way to cups and titles none other than Mr peat he wasn't to quick to grant us a break when we came back from Seville straight into a league decider at rugby park, And let's not forget sevco were allowed to cancel a game before a euro tie which kind of led to the fixture congestion they were moaning about, what a riddy complaint now big hug and the likes and obviously it bothered brother peat.

4.) 18 Sep 2018 16:45:09
We still have fans hell bent in keeping the anti Celtic SMSM alive and capable of pouring out its venomous propaganda pro Rangers 2012 and anti Celtic . If someone had told me 20 or 30 years ago this would be the case, I would have laughed in their face.

5.) 18 Sep 2018 16:36:14
The old club had a cheek to ask for help in 2008, considering they were cheating during this period and still couldn't win the league in 2008😂😂😂😂 have a peek at the sevco pages they are up in arms, crying sporting integrity😂😂😂 To all sevco fans reading this when you claim not to visit the champions pages - YOU DESERVE NOTHING!



17 Sep 2018 08:16:55
Dembele, Roberts and Armstrong out the first team. Massive lost to our team and no quality replacement.

On the bright side the bank balance is very healthy and the Celtic plc will get their bonuses.


1.) 17 Sep 2018 09:21:22
Them getting their bank balance related bonus is the only thing that helps me hang on. Ntcham and Boyata will be off too. If we want any money in for him and let’s face it, Lawell needs cash in to ensure his goody bag next year he will be sold in January. If he doesn’t go then Lawells failure to replace him will cause us losing millions to add tonthevtens if millions he has already cost us.

He should be sacked never mind rewarded for abject failure.

As I’ve said before, McGinn will move on for millions to add to that total of loss. But, remember Defabet deal and the Disco lights. Where would we be without them? Phew!

2.) 17 Sep 2018 10:34:46
I know we can seem ungrateful/ unappreciative of the success we have achieved under BR and we wouldn't swap a minute of it and will never forget the 'Invincibles' and the 'Double-Treble' winners and obviously hope we carry on wining trophies, breaking records and creating history.
However, there is absolutely no doubt that the manager is being let-down in his quest to keep improving and building this Celtic team in the way he has repeatedly professed .
The start to this season has been inconsistent to say the least, with CL disappointment, a transfer window which failed to replace lost quality and indeed - missing out on 'stick-on' target' the Boyata situation disrupting the squad and losing a last day asset.
The timing of the International break was bad luck, just as we had put two impressive performances together, but the last three months have no-doubt affected consistency and confidence, resulting in patchy performances, with players 'not at it' and a lack fluency, creativity and goals.
There is nothing we can do about adding quality, for the time being, but there is a lot the players can do, to improve their attitude, sharpness and application and prove a point to everyone.

3.) 17 Sep 2018 14:35:23
good post once a bhoy. Not talking about directors bonuses etc. I don't know how many, if any, players we approached and were given a polite "No but thank you for showing your interest but playing in the SPL is not really what I hoped for. " Even mickey mouse teams in England can offer more money and give a bigger display window.
Personally, I don't believe we have not tried to get players.
Did we try hard enough? I don't know. But a player wanting to move is not worth the disruption.
Sadly, the days of any honour among contracts has long gone. The vast majority of players are inj it for what they can get (I am not saying its wrong) .
However, some of our "Invincibles" have just not got into gear yet and when they do. someone is in for a mauling.
(I am not naive enough to think we don't need to strengthen but WHO? McGinn knew what he was doing and professing a love for Celtic was nice to hear but if it were true he would be at Celtic Park now. he played a good game and got a move down south.
The rest, we all know about.

4.) 17 Sep 2018 16:32:41
Ok magicpole we get it, you don’t like Peter Lawwell (note the spelling) we are all disappointed we never managed to get certain players during the summer. You’re posts are becoming repetitive and boring. As I said, we are all disappointed with the transfer window business but we don’t rant on regarding it. I noticed when we beat rangers recently everything was okay, now when we draw with St Mirren Peter Lawwell gets it from you, for goodness sake give it a rest. oldkilly.

5.) 17 Sep 2018 17:30:16
I never said everything was ok. I said it should have been 4. Just bypass anything I put up. You don’t dictate what I can feel and write as I wouldn’t with you. The problems caused will be long term if something isn’t done. My post was a reaction to OMC saying we should name a Stand after cheapskate. I gave a few possible names I think would sum him up.

6.) 17 Sep 2018 18:17:35
We still haven't won 4 League games in a row for over a year. We have won 9 out of the last 18 home games which is dire. From this week onwards hopefully we hit some form and start fireing on all cylinders.

7.) 18 Sep 2018 20:59:09
What's the prize for winning four league games in a row .? Do the SPL put up a special bonus of £1m or more for achieving 4. In a row .
I thought the goal in the league is to finish at the end with more points than any other team in the league, somehow or other we have managed that for our last 7 seasons so we seem to have the knack of winning the league ok .

Good buisness by Celtic guarantees a big sale when time comes. Ntcham will need to up his game more regular to be First team pick.

This split in the dressing room causing this crisis is hard to watch. HH.

McGuire singed his 5yr deal in the summer of 2017. So will come down to if Leicester want to cash in. Would be good if he stayed.

Benkovic staying/ going Should not be a consideration in January window. We need 2 quality CH in this window. We need to be ready for European qualifiers. RB and another Striker in January would be a good window. A striker in the mould of Dembele would be nice.

Island Celtic

Thanks for admitting my superior knowledge. Joking aside can't recall us ever going to Dens park and not having a hard game. They fight for every ball. Parkhead when we are winning last 20minutes is when I would introduce him.

It's pointless because the young yin won't start. He told me last night while I was tucking him in.

If you were in charge of Celtic. You would throw the boy into Dundee away on a cold Wednesday night to see what he can do.

Thank God your not in charge.

He's a 19yr old boy from another country. His time will come if he's good enough. Brendans strong point is player development he knows what he's doing. Took Tam Rogic a while to get going.

Compare that to Leckie's hatchet job in the rag he writes for. You can feel the hurt in him. Actually I enjoy knowing it hurts the fat slug so much. You can always rely on the Scottish press to promote our game.

I salute your ability to still think at that stage. Personally I was just shouting random gibberish by that point. By added on time I was barking and shouting about whistles. HH.
