Regardless if you want them as permanent signings or not does anyone reckon there would be the finances to sign Paddy and edouard at the end of the season?
Would this be dependant on the mousse leaving the hoose?
Would anyone be happy with this arrangement?

Love to get Paddy. Would like to think we'd get him for under 10 big one's. As for the big fella, widdnae bother.

2.) 20 Feb 2018 21:50:57
Id be over the moon if we could get 20 mil for dembele. But on current form we'd be lucky to get 10mil.
If we DO manage to get 20+mil for him I'd be delighted if we could sign Robert's and edouard for 15 of that and the board can keep the rest.

3.) 21 Feb 2018 00:13:46
If paddy kicks on for the last bit of the season we will be priced out. If the board/ BR can get 20m for the moose it will be at the cost of edouard not getting games. That 7.5m can't be justified. To keep our strikers happy and valuable going with 2 up top is the only option. Might give teams something to think about as well and give us the option of going direct in games where side or backwards passes are the only things happening.

4.) 21 Feb 2018 00:39:18
Not 100% but if youth is counted Paddy is considered a homegrown player. There are plenty of epl sides that would be glad to have him. It all comes down to where he wants to be, what he wants to earn and what mancity want cash wise. I just can't see it. Even if the moose goes for 20m do you think we will sign 2 players for 15m? Again I can't see it. There is a massive rebuild of our team on the horizon.

5.) 21 Feb 2018 09:52:25
I'm with Jennyfleck, didn't bother with Edouard. Certainly not at £7m Paddy? Mmm, not for me. Forrest come on a ton. Let's be wise here. Hotel in the pipeline etc. nah.



31 Jan 2018 21:56:20
The board said we would spend £6-8 million if the right player came available.

Why oh why have we not went out and signed the bison?

I say we organise a protest march and boycott, imagine bringing in a lower quality singing like charly bhoy from Chelsea and retaining the services of the moose when we could have obtained the services of the SPLs most prolific haircut.

The season books won't be taken up I tell you.

Or we could do nothing and sit back and watch our club die, apparently its the done thing lol.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 23:03:51
and there it is. Lawwell wins the day again with a loan signing.

A good signing but again at the cost of not improving in other areas.

Also see this "watch our club die" by spending cash. that's not how "they" died btw

they tax dodged, they didn't die by spending. They died by spending someone elses cash and getting caught.

HUGE difference. get it right next time.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 23:20:38
Tesla I think u missed my point, I was referring to the sevco fans.

4.) 01 Feb 2018 00:45:59
Maybe so, but I've seen so many people delighted at this transfer window. it's a disgrace tbh. So many people lowered their standards. We should be trying to improve.

Right now it's one step fwd and two steps back. Get inexperienced players, develop, sell.

repeat, repeat. No progression. No investment to move forward. Just happy stuck in one place, going nowhere.

Yet quite happy to put ticket prices up.

5.) 01 Feb 2018 07:43:51
Most important thing was retention this window mate. Last window we were close to seeing a few regulars leave, we have strengthened instead. Support and be happy man.

6.) 01 Feb 2018 07:43:44
I completely get where Tesla is coming from.
If I told you at the start of the window that we would have the injuries that we have now but don't worry we'll get Scott Bain on loan and a cb who'll soon be 23 but people still refer to as a "young prospect" who has only ever made 56 professional appearances, half of which are with Dundee. I am confident that all of you would've been dissapointed.
We have spent less than the new club who are apparently in financial trouble.
Yes we've spent roughly £8m this season, according to transfermrkt, which in the past would have been a large amount but in todays market that is peanuts.
We have the money from CL and transfer clauses of VVD etc.
I understand the club are trying to expand in other ways with the hotel etc but I think we should continue to improve what we have on the pitch at the same time.
Fair enough we have been playing very well but if we don't improve and somehow the new team manage to find investment from somewhere and continue to spend more than us every season then they will eventually catch up.
It will probably be after ten in a row, but it will happen.

I know I'll get a load of dislikes but I felt that something had to be said.

7.) 01 Feb 2018 08:36:01
Jeeze, AGAIN, for the umpteenth time, how much do you think it takes to run Celtic? Musonda? HUGE outlay on a guy we could never afford. Young Morgan, BACK UP keeper and a highly rated young player who, you have to admit, looks a player. Added to a squad who were unbeaten last year, with Rogic and Paddy back soon. Come on mate. Sevco SPENT more? I'll leave that there.

8.) 01 Feb 2018 09:56:23
How is he a "young player"?
The boy is nearly 23!

Yes Sevco have spent more this season,
If they continue to spend more then eventually they will catch up.
No one really knows where they are getting the cash from but if they continue to invest they will continue to improve.

Our keeper situation was already shaky with Gordon in the first team let's be honest.
He was being slated on here after every game.
He's injured and we're now left with DDV, who GORDON was keeping out of the first team.
Bain who I used to rate very highly but now cannot get a game for Dundee or Hibs.

I do know how much it takes to run Celtic.
Celtic's revenue grew 74.2% last year compared to the previous year while our expenses grew only 33.4%. We are still owed £5.7m from player sales. It was reported at the end of 2017 that we have a year-end net cash at bank of £17.9m, huge increase from the £3.6m we had at the end of 2016.
All figures from Celtic's end of year accounts.

We have the financial resources to go out and sign a quality first team player but we didn't.

9.) 01 Feb 2018 11:46:13
See, Jhedi sticks up for board, gets a few likes n that. Support really is split on it but god knows why.

Happy to simply retain players? is that how amateur we are now?

The only thing it seems will take for fans to realise will be when zombies catch us. Only then will they demand. Quite pathetic really that the only thing some care about is being better than them.

Our standard should be Europe and to at least be a solid Europa side. Not settle to win a broken and beaten SPFL.

10.) 01 Feb 2018 12:15:12
Tesla who says we aren't a solid Europa side? We'll find out in a couple of weeks if we're a decent Europa level or not. I don't buy into this OTT fear of Zenit. If Anderlecht had qualified instead of us, people would be saying it's a 50/ 50 tie but because it's us we're doomed.

11.) 01 Feb 2018 14:44:15
Tesla, or maybe just maybe BR won't shell out for players who won't improve our team, and u also forget there is a real possibility we could be spending 12-15m in the summer with Roberts and Eddy so mibi we keepin it for that.

12.) 01 Feb 2018 14:44:15

13.) 01 Feb 2018 20:11:50
I was heartened by players stepping up against the east coast loyal, but the fact is the board did not spend to bring in defenders who aren't cup tied and will slot straight into the team, or bite the bullet and buy a good keeper.

Hendry may or may not be an answer, Morgan may of may not make a position his own next year. No RB means we either think we have cover in Hendry or that Ralston can cut it. Either way its unknown and that for the board to go wth hope rather than a belt and braces approach by signing a good one in the £4-5m bracket doesn't surprise me.

Im sorry but a young player from Dundee who may or may not be good enough, is just not good enough if we are genuinely serious about becoming a CL level team. It just isn't.

I was absolutely convinced we would bring in quality, but I meant more than one player.

14.) 01 Feb 2018 21:09:31
spot on a Magicpole.

15.) 02 Feb 2018 00:11:46
island celt, don't you know we're skint and the stadium is crumbling. We just can't throw money we don't have. When will this 2nd season meltdown end, i just can't take it anymore.

16.) 02 Feb 2018 00:14:45
I'd say we haven't done anything in Europe for about 5 seasons.

So we have basically just qualified at best. as for the rest see magicpoles post.

17.) 02 Feb 2018 02:46:22
The last time we built from strength was the seasons leading up to the sevile final. The team aged and dispersed. How much is 5 or 6m in todays money? We've had a few good teams since as well. When the window closes next summer we will know exactly where the club is going. I had a look at the celticfc official site and I scrolled down the squad and counted players that may leave, should and will. It's a big chunk. 2019/ 2020 will be Rodgers team. This is his summer. Should of been winter but we have too many 1st team players the aren't ours or are likely to leave.

18.) 02 Feb 2018 11:47:49
There is certainly something amiss in a person's when whether we have had a good transfer window is based on how much money we spend. This is total nonsense.
If P L and B R cared as little about the club as these nobodies do, then they could spend £12-15m on any run of the mill player and these fools would be satisfied.

19.) 02 Feb 2018 12:33:56
Old man Chris literally nobody is saying a good window = highest money spent.

if you get a Van Dijk at £2mil, Wanyama at 900k, Dembele 500k then superb!

but if you are struggling in a specific position and need real quality to take you to the next level then you MUST be willing to cast a bigger net out.

Instead our board bring in Hendry who no offence to the guy but probably isn't even better than Sviatchenko who we have let go on loan.

People are talking about a lack of progress in quality in the squad, not a lack of spending 500 mil.

20.) 02 Feb 2018 12:54:47
why do you keep harking tote totally false presumption that we would be happy if we spent £12m or big money. that's a total misrepresation of the position and clearly shows your total lack of understanding of the actual situation.

What we want is Toby a quality player who would slot intothe team and improve it. If we are lucky we may find a gem fora couple of million, like vvd. We have chosen to go for a player who plays with Dundee.

You yourself have said Brendan could improve him. Do you also think he could go inright now? If you don't do you refute the fact we actually need someone right now and thirdly do you think that recognised quality players come in a lucky bag?

Nobody wants us to spend money for these of it. what we want is to spend money that will ensure we can improve our chances of both beating Zenit and qualifying for the CL. we a ll know we have enough to win at home . The disconnect is between our stated aim of becoming a recognised CL taming the evidence of defensive frailities that led to us being totally hammered in too mny games.

If e don't address this it will continue. Is that what you want? To flatline? We need to up our defensive game . That requires additional personnel. if it is a quality player then of course he is going tocost more. What your attitude exemplifies is the fact if we don't bite the bullet then we stall. Your menaical support of the board and their strategy is risky.

None of this would be an issue if Peter and Rogers hadnt stated we have ambitions to be a CL level club whilst at the same time not investing in the type of player who doesn't need to be improved before he can step in. that means we go with what we have. That means that the immediate opportunity to make us harder to breach in the Zenit games could fall to the same players who couldn't cut it in the group stages.

How can that be a good thing?

Its not about spend spend spend. I ts about looking for a player who is better than what we have. It is recognising that this type doesn't come cheap, but in investing in quality it better ensures we qualify for the CL, have a better chance against Zenit and move us even further ahead at home.

We should have the money to do this with two lots of CL money, vvd money, 50K season books sold. We are nt talking about £20m we are talking about using the £7m from vvd add in another £3m from the CL revenue and buy two defenders in the £5m bracket.

That wouldn't break the bank. and it would improve us. Instead we have a young guy from Dundee who might be the answer, but might not be right now. well the world operates in the right now, later is dependent upon the right now. If we don't strengthen now will we risk missing out because the pattern of defending and lapses kills us. Then not fixing it with an outlay of £10m might cost us £40m.

Thats the risk. Remember Commpare can't ply against Zenit. Beating them will bring in other £5m in gates and Tv and progressing. That recoups the cost of one player right there. We lose because our defence is still weak and that's money down the drain.

You obviously think they can do no wrong. Blind faith was never my thing.



16 Jan 2018 13:17:57
Any murmurings on a new keeper, or do you reckon summer?
Gordon has done well with shots recently, but the distribution still gives me the fear.
At the moment there seems to be no credible push from any of his understudies to take the no. 1 spot.
Do you reckon we are developing a young keeper as the replacement?

How many 'good' keepers have we every produced? I couldn't think of any!

Island celt

1.) 16 Jan 2018 13:26:13
Boruc? Marshall? Bonner?

2.) 16 Jan 2018 13:26:19
David Marshall has had a good career.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 13:40:55
We had shay given on our books and let him go, not sure if that's what you mean but just one that's not been mentioned.

5.) 16 Jan 2018 14:40:54

I’d forgot about david marshal - cracking game against Barcelona years ago.

6.) 16 Jan 2018 14:55:03
I liked Stuart Kerr but he had to leave to play more football, it's a shame he had to retire so early.

7.) 16 Jan 2018 15:55:27
We had brad friedel and shay given on the books at same time. Givens contract was up and Lou macari wouldn’t pay his digs on top of his wages then Blackburn cane in and offered double - just finished reading packies book on hols 😂.

8.) 16 Jan 2018 19:34:22
Any good welshy?

9.) 16 Jan 2018 19:37:10
Boruc was only a year into his international careee when he signed for us but I firmly believe he got better under Stevie woods.

As for developing young players, keeper is one that rarely sees someone from the academy make the grade and step up and we always have someone with more experience as number 1! To be fair in the last 10/ 20 years very few players have made the step up from the youths to first team. KT, Forrest McGeady and Maloney are the only ones I can think of.

Stuart Kerr was decent too. For me though keeper is one of always rather see a quality experienced player fill.

10.) 18 Jan 2018 22:07:39
Fraser Forster isn't a bad one either.



30 Nov 2017 12:04:17
Just a general point on how quick your fortunes can turn:
Paddy roberts ran riot second half of last season, fast forward to now and he's been hindered by disjointed pre season, indifferent form and injuries. Bit gutted for the wee man, but this season won't boost his city first team aspirations. On another note James Forrest- a few big goals this year.

Island celt

1.) 30 Nov 2017 12:32:20
makes you kind of glad we didn't pay 12 million for him but all in all a very good footballer who improves our team.

2.) 30 Nov 2017 15:21:23
I think it is his poor pre season that has probably brought on these injuries IC. Everyone else was getting game time and a proper work out through the summer while he was sitting on planes and benches. It's a shame we didn't get him in earlier. Credit to JF though who has certainly been our star performer this season.

{Ed007's Note - You've hit the nail on the head, Stan regarding Roberts' preseason. While we were playing competitive matches and Euro qualifiers he was travelling the world sitting on City's bench.
If you remember back to last year Roberts had the same stuttering start to the season because he was behind everyone else fitness and sharpness wise, how many competitive games had we played before Roberts signed this summer? For the first couple of months of the season he's playing catch up with the rest of the squad who done a full preseason with us and played CL and SPFL games.}

3.) 30 Nov 2017 18:51:13
It might allow us to pick him up permanently in the summer.

4.) 30 Nov 2017 23:01:59
There is always an excuse for Paddy Roberts, I am not sure the Celtic fan base ever had the same sympathy for one of own home produced stars James Forrest who unless he is giving a MOTM performance can expect to hear " go to f. k Forrest you are useless"

5.) 01 Dec 2017 00:29:42
Now it's third instalment do we change it up or go with same again thanks?

Lustig Boyata jozo Tierney

Brown. Armstrong

Hayes. Rogic. Forrest


6.) 01 Dec 2017 06:28:17
The pre season definitely didn’t help him, mind you no one has looked overly sharp so far! Bit unfair maybe, still unbeaten, Top of the league, silverware in the bag and a CL away win.

Discounted bid for Paddy maybe?

7.) 01 Dec 2017 21:46:26
who is to say forest isn't play so well because there's competition for his place.

as long as we are winning Roberts/ forest what's the diff.

8.) 02 Dec 2017 13:57:23
The criticism Forrest has received was wholly justified. He has failed to reach the potential he showed. His final ball was arm tricuspid and he never scored enough goals.

You don't get a by because you are home produced. I'm home produced, can I get a game.

Forrest has upped his game at last. It's only taken 7 years. He needs to keep it up or he will lose his place, which is the way we moved forward. Home produced does trump talent.

He has no one to blame but himself for chronic inconsistency and no one to rely on to keep in the team but himself also.

9.) 02 Dec 2017 14:35:04
Paddy out for 3 months so let's see Forrest keep up his form with no competition. I am more of competitive threat than Hayes.

Over to you James, show everyone you can maintain form. Be a nice change for everyone concerned.

10.) 02 Dec 2017 18:28:54
Way to go James. Well played son.



09 Oct 2017 23:45:46
Lots of talk about it's a good thing that Scotland didn't qualify- players should be proud to represent their country, winning caps and competing against the best in the world should be considered an honour.
Top players play in tournaments - all the pish about how Celtic are better off grips me.

Quality players win games, raise the profile of the game in this country, inspire youngsters.
The manager didn't get it right but all this were better off malarky is dross.
I'm sick of the international game but it's all down to this glorious failure tripe. How about glorious results.
Scottish club Irish history, come on the republic tonight and here to Scotland in the next euros.

Island celt

1.) 10 Oct 2017 11:46:13
I'm furious we didn't qualify, We have that players we just need a manager who is willing to use them and play players on form not sticking with favourites who have let him down in the past. I would rather Celtic had a squad of internationals playing at World Cups and the Euros as it means we have a squad of world class players. Infact i long for the day when the Scotland team is 11 Tims!

2.) 11 Oct 2017 18:43:41
I blame Scotland for not Qualifying on the SFA not any players and not really the management team. But the football set up in this country is poor to say the least and that in my opinion comes down to Regan and the SFA and until he is removed from the position he is in and some one New comes in with fresh ideas and commitment we will always remain a 3rd rate country as far as football is concerned.

Not been on in a while, just catching up on the posts. Lots of people having a pop at the manager and team.
I'm not saying some criticism isn't justified as performance levels have been well below last year, but lots of the posts seem to be overly negative.

seems to be a 50/ 50 split on here. team A. we are awful, team B. but were still on for everything. thursday night etc. the thing is. its 2 different teams. thursday/ heats amazing. random other games dire. i agree fully that our b team SHOULD be smashing the spl but rubbish happens. we have no middle ground due to crazy injuries. its not rotation. its a full swap. im happy to take every point while its happening. right away to sit back on my fence.

{Ed007's Note - Would you say that was our B team though, Gerry? Look at the players we have out injured, Ralston and definitely Compper would have played yesterday, Armstrong or Ntcham depending on who played the EL game and the same between Roberts and Forrest, LG would have probably started Thursday on the bench but in the starting line-up yesterday and it was Rogic's first game after a 6/7 week lay off. I wouldn't say yesterday was a B team but that it was more a case of Rodgers playing who was available to allow the best possible preparations for the Zenit game.}

2.) 19 Feb 2018 22:28:44
Spot on Ed. BRENDAN HAS PRIORITISED the Zenit game. We have loads of players to come back and then we may not need to rotate as much as now.

3.) 20 Feb 2018 08:48:34
Celtic have averaged 2.26 points per game in the league this season.
TRIFC and Aberdeen have averaged 1.926 points.

Being generous and saying either team hits Our average points tally then they shouldn’t get any more than 77 points (more then either of them got last season) . With that scenario we would only need 5 wins and a draw (say 6 wins) to win the league.

Nae bother at all.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 12:42:49
There's nothing to say we can't go unbeaten for the rest of the season. Or win all of the remaining games. We done it last season. Think wits the players coming back that'll give us more options. If we beat Aberdeen and Rangers then the league is in the bag. As we aren't going to slip up with that big a gap with the other 10 games.

5.) 20 Feb 2018 22:03:57
totally agree 007. my point was mostly that wee seem to have a flair team for bigger games and a workhorse team for the grind. as the injured come back i think well see a much more even rotation. Hail Hail.

How about poll - given the choice between either James McLean or Paddy Roberts (permanent signings) who would everyone prefer?

Island celt

{Ed033's Note -

McLean or Roberts Poll

1.) 04 Jan 2018 23:49:16
Paddy all day long. as much as McLean is a Tim. I'd rather sign John McLean from diehard.

{Ed007's Note - What an absolutely stupid and pointless comparison, McClean and Roberts play in different positions and are completely different types of player. McClean's a more rounded midfielder who plays on the left and Roberts is an out and right winger who has never shown that he can track back and do the defensive work McClean does.
A better question would be should Celtic have signed McClean or Hayes in the summer or should Celtic have bought McClean for £1.5 million in 2015 rather than give Kris Commons a 2 years extension?}

2.) 05 Jan 2018 00:53:57
He's not even anywhere close to that good.

{Ed007's Note - OK then, you're probably best stick to watching films with balding middle aged men wearing a simmit.}

3.) 05 Jan 2018 06:49:42
Totally agree ed McLean would walk it up here he's a completely different player as u say to paddy. daft poll imo.

4.) 05 Jan 2018 09:18:37
Pointless poll as had been said. I'll pass thanks. What really pisses me off though is people taking the boys political beliefs into account and being worried about a PR disaster. What a load of totally politically correct utter pish.

5.) 05 Jan 2018 09:56:49
James Mcclean is a winger/ attacking midfielder that has scored a total of 11 goals in 160 EPL games. so not far off 2 goals a season. He's pish. end of.

{Ed001's Note - is he that good? He can't shoot, tackle, pass or cross. He has no intelligence nor discipline on the pitch. His sole redeeming feature is that he has pace, unless you count hard work, as he does work hard but personally I think that should be something every player is expected to do as a bare minimum and not be considered a plus point.}

6.) 05 Jan 2018 10:46:26
Bhoy wonder my comment didn't relate to his ability or lack of but to the politically correct pish that some of our supporters seem to think is relevant and a concern in terms of being a PR disaster for the club. Different club and supporters from the one I grew up watching if that's the case.

7.) 05 Jan 2018 10:36:50
Just a note:
the idea behind the poll was not a like for like positional comparison.
It was meant to be a straight forward ‘who would you want to see in the hoops (permanently) ?

8.) 05 Jan 2018 07:51:08

Oh, you meant the other guy from Die Hard lol.

Come on let’s not be having polls on here! Leave that to the tribute act! More ‘polls’ than Lewis Hamilton over there! 🤣🤣🤣 paddy on top form any day of the week but like the other lads say theyr 2 completely different players! Just a question ED is there any actual interest in James Mclean lol!

{Ed007's Note - It's all just speculation for now mate. McClean's available and he recently done an interview with the Celtic View about how much he would love to play for us and people are putting 2 + 2 together. It's a possibility but I wouldn't hold my breath on it happening just yet.}

10.) 05 Jan 2018 11:48:23
001 while we have your attention I did say to you a while back both VVD and big Fraser would improve your team if your lot would have listened you would have saved yourselves £60 million plus?

PS Have you solved that goal keeping problem yet? :-P (Y)

{Ed001's Note - Fraser Forster is the only keeper in the Prem worse than Mignolet. He still can't move his feet. Crap keeper.

As for VVD I would rather we had signed a better defender, as that is his weakness. Good footballer but not a good defender, when we have plenty of footballers, just a lack of quality defenders.

Not sure why you felt the need to hijack a thread to have this convo. You could have quite easily just started a fresh one and left this one for the discussion of McLean that it should be for, so I will ask Ed007 to delete any further comment on here taking away from the actual discussion it should be for.

Is McLean a European level winger? Not in the slightest, he is a downgrade on the players you currently have, so why bring him in? Makes no sense. Yes he will be good enough to win the SPFL, but you already have those players so it is just stupidity to bring him in. If he was English or Welsh not one person on here would be calling for him to sign. He has struggled to hold down a regular first team place at relegation strugglers, he is not Sinclair who was a regular in a midtable team then struggled at the top team.}

It’s not often I agree with you ed01, but I do with you assessment of McLean, think he is a very average player, trying to work his way to Celtic, just my opinion though, and have been wrong a couple of times before 👍.

He’s a downgrade on Johnny Hayes?

13.) 05 Jan 2018 14:35:00
Aye fair enough 001, Just not seen you on here for a while and wanted to highlight what I already thought was a good fit for Liverpool

The only keeper worse than Mignolet in the EPL is Gomez @ Watford IMO Danny Ward has to be the best keeper @ Liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - Forster is the worst, at least Gomez can play well at times, he is just incredibly inconsistent. On his day he is sensational, while Forster on his day is below average, he is just a big lump who takes up a lot of the goal.

I like Ward but Klopp doesn't.

As for the rest, no worries, just don't want to get threads taken too far from the actual point of them.}

Klopp won't be at Liverpool for too long, so Ward might be at 'pool soon enough .
Klopp seems to be a nearly man, a couple of wins and just when the fans thinks they are getting somewhere defensive sleeping costs them badly .
I will be amazed if he is still there at Christmas.

With the link in the media today regarding our interest in the German defender from RB, who was everyone's favourite German to pull on the hoops. I can only think of two:
Hinkel, Thom.

they are the only 2 that come to mind Hinkel and Thom out the 2 I would say hinkel.

2.) 12 Dec 2017 15:59:48
2 great players, what a screamer Thom scored at the Bigotdome. I think Cha was German born although he chose to play for South Korea.

thom for me

had a seat 14 rows back on the halfway line and watched him tear up and doon.

4.) 12 Dec 2017 17:20:01
Does anyone remember Dieter Knapper from around late 70's?

5.) 12 Dec 2017 18:12:57
Thom was a cracker as crackin player, that goal against ebt United was the highlight.

Jermaine Alliadiere 😁😁😁.

How did Johnny Hayes play yesterday?
I read BRs comments saying he was worth pass marks?

Island celt

1.) 03 Dec 2017 14:55:41
Was good. A 7 or 7.5 rating I'd say. Best he's played for us.

2.) 03 Dec 2017 15:04:51
I thought he was excellent - won nearly every tackle he went in for and his delivery on his right foot was good almost every time. He gave Motherwell a lot of problems and linked up well. He tired and was subbed after about an hour but I suppose that was likely due to his lack of games.

Best game in a Celtic jersey by a mile.

{Ed007's Note - I thought the same myself about Hayes. I'd have liked him to get a goal though which would maybe have given him a real confidence boost as I've heard that getting his dream move to us has been weighing him down a bit.}

3.) 03 Dec 2017 23:24:45
I thought the team played v well yesterday mainly due to the high pace generated by Hayes and Sincair . Ntcham was brilliant in midfield and our new striker looked excellent.

The pool hall is next door to a pub called the spiders web (or at least it was) , now she’s a boozer. Tread carefully if you venture in there.
