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.

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.

Heard in Bristol today that we are after some highly rated centre half. Can't remember the boys name, half a story here but thought I'd pass it on.

I see we are being linked to sunderlands Borini, any thoughts on this bhoys? I have not seen anything of him.
I expect the Scottish press will link us with everyone until the close of the transfer window. Any truth in this one?

Island celt

I think hed do well up here a bit lije sinclair has lost his way but imo hed score goals.

2.) 13 Apr 2017 17:53:36
i know this will get shot down and Sheffield Wednesday have a game tomorrow but i saw Garry Hooper today going through Lennoxtown.

3.) 14 Apr 2017 01:25:12
he was up at a funeral.

4.) 14 Apr 2017 08:08:38
I think there is better options than Borini, but I think we should be looking at players who have a bit more experience in Europe, id be looking into leagues with a lot of time for wingers like the Portuguese league or Dutch league. Not saying Borini wouldn't be a good signing just think there's a more wide variety of options for that sort of price.

5.) 14 Apr 2017 09:19:20
Like Sinclair I think borinis best days were playing under br at Swansea
Cheap journalists though
Links this summer will be borini routledge allen vorm
One name I'd love at Celtic is sigurdson if Swansea go down I think it could happen depending on what prem clubs are interested.

{Ed001's Note - Sigurdsson has made it known he wants out of Swansea.}

6.) 14 Apr 2017 09:29:47
Never really happened at spurs for him but I think he's the type of player Celtic should be looking at this close season
Not sure what sort of financial package would be required mind you but would expect around the same as what Sinclair is on.

7.) 14 Apr 2017 12:16:10
Swansea will want about 100 million dollars so can't see it. Some player though, he would be immense!

8.) 14 Apr 2017 22:37:42
borini is a plate of mince to my mums tatties.

Anyone know when Rogic is due back?

Island celt

1.) 24 Mar 2017 12:12:02
I was just thinking the same thing, I hope Brendan and the coaching staff have arranged a friendly or a devolopment match or two to get him playing again.
If he makes the semi final, I have a good feeling as he will want to atone for that penalty miss last year (bl00dy Hampden pitch)
I would even have a bet on him scoring hail hail.

2.) 24 Mar 2017 15:05:33
When he started back training the gaffer said he was 4 weeks away.
Think that was 2 weeks ago.



26 Jan 2017 18:29:07
A lot of talk regarding Gordon

Here is a question:
Gordon or Douglas?

Myself- Gordon

Island celt

1.) 26 Jan 2017 19:08:56
Douglas as in Rab Douglas?
I don't think that's even a debate.

2.) 26 Jan 2017 19:30:54
Douglas a bit old now at least Gordon has a year or two left?

3.) 26 Jan 2017 20:04:27
Not even debateable, Douglas was a horrible keeper

4.) 26 Jan 2017 20:16:25
Douglas was up there with Carl Muggleton. Cost us a UEFA Cup in my opinion. Not a big fan of Gordon but Douglas makes him look like Peter Schmeichel. Pity we didn't have Forster in nets against Porto.

5.) 26 Jan 2017 20:29:15
I'd take Ian Andrews purely for his Tennets Sixes performance ahead of Douglas

6.) 26 Jan 2017 21:48:37
Big rab was hopeless

7.) 26 Jan 2017 22:39:29
Douglas was good at the time. Gordon or de vries is more apt and it's Gordon every time.

8.) 26 Jan 2017 23:33:53
I always felt big Rab was by far the weak link back in the day.
We have never been blessed with solid keepers until the holy goals and big fraz.

A great celt but I never rated packie either.

How did we get on yesterday troops?
Looked like a line up far from our first, best eleven, so happy with the win
How did the ntcham and kouassi pairing look?

Island celt

1.) 15 Oct 2017 09:16:17
Not good to be honest, but apart from Paddy you could say that about everyone.

2.) 15 Oct 2017 09:42:29
Celtic were very poor. Could hardly find a team mate with a pass, had very little in the last third, Grifiths and McGreggor were particularly brutal, Sinclair was off the boil and Paddy was too deep to be effective and didn't deserve MOTM for me. Though Boyata had a good game and De Vries was outstanding. In fairness while we were pants Dundee played well and took the game to us and always think Paul McGowan is not a bad player and should have made more of his chance with us than he did. ☘️.

3.) 15 Oct 2017 17:58:18
Agree with everything we were Brutal but Dundee kicked us off the pitch that little Rat McCann tactics were if it has a Celtic top on then kick it.

4.) 15 Oct 2017 22:07:02
I don't really agree with this resting players before a big game, I think unless the player is injured he should play, a team that plays together, develops together, grows together, gets to know each others little ways, and all that, moreso after an international break, where the Celtic players have been taken out of the Celtic routine, I just don't understand it, it is almost like we are going back to the bad old days of Ronnie, (who's managing methods seem to be getting more blizzard)



24 Aug 2017 19:16:22
Great draw for me, a bit of glamour, different away trips, and for me every reason to be optimistic.

What's the point of being in the CL if it's not to test yourself against the best?
In pot 4 we were always up against it. In fact Being in the CL we are always going to be up against it. I reckon we've a good shout for third.
Keep the faith troops.
By the way I hope neymar gets his cumupince of of big Mikel. Can't stand the man, maybe send on Ralston to half him.

Island celt

1.) 24 Aug 2017 19:33:49
Good draw but realistically third looks doable but you never know.



22 Aug 2017 19:49:21
Bit of a wake up call tonight:

Wasteful in midfield (brown especially)
Keeper beaten near post (again)
Wasteful of chances (griff for Europe? )
Young guys inexperienced at this level but will benefit from this game
Teams who press us high up the park will either get slaughtered on the counter or will reap the rewards.

Great job to qualify delighted for us all, this team is building and learning every game.

Imagine this draw:

Real Madrid

Regardless of the draw it's great to be back in the group stages.

Island celt

1.) 22 Aug 2017 20:05:34
Definitely a wake up call ralston ajer out of their depth. I know biton only covering but hurry back all our cbs. Needing cb with pace. overall good experience for the young guys tonight. Let's. Get a good draw for a change .

2.) 22 Aug 2017 20:10:56
id much rather something along the lines of spartak Porto and Liverpool.

3.) 22 Aug 2017 20:25:21
Spartan Moscow Porto Basel then I would be looking for top of section. As long as all players are back including PR.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 21:06:21
Can't say I thought either ajer or Ralston looked out of their depth tonight . biton yes.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 22:01:35
DRB - I know you champion the youth but the pair of them where well of it tonight.

Bitton did as well as he could in that position. I personally at one point thought Rodgers had made an arse of it tonight. But . I should never doubt the man as he hasn't let us down once.

6.) 22 Aug 2017 22:39:29
Kev I watched game again there and the two worst performers in defence imo where lustig and biton . thought ajer was the best of the 2/ 3 at cb and remember he too has only in the last season converted to cb. same with Ralston lustig was really bad at rb ( not much better at cb ) when moved in and i thought Ralston coming on shored it up . i don't know what you seen to think ajer or ralston done wrong . But everyone sees things slightly different i know.

{Ed007's Note - And Ajer is more used to playing on that kind of surface after spending a season at Kilmarnock.}

7.) 23 Aug 2017 08:28:58
Thought ajer did ok tbh, unlucky own goal, just hope he stops the bombing forward, got caught out a few times, reminded me of kolo last yr, im old school, as in a defender should defend first and foremost.

8.) 23 Aug 2017 12:06:03
Think your being a bit harsh lsland celt, yes we made a bit of hard work but 4-3 (8-4 on agg) is not bad result for going there, hearing there was some trouble from Astana fans too.

9.) 23 Aug 2017 12:14:37

Ralston in 18 years old, and Ajer 19. Give the kids a fecking break!

We gurn about youngsters not getting a chance and then slaughter them when they do. We won the tie, qualified and that experience will be invaluable to their development. The manager believes in their ability and has shown a great deal of faith pitching them into recent games. That may have been a bit of necessity, but I certainly don't think he done it out of sentiment.

10.) 23 Aug 2017 12:11:50
I would go with this draw.



12 Jul 2017 17:33:55
Not posted for a wee while - just wanted to say a few points:

-welcome aboard to the new bhoys, that Oliver looks a big lad let's hope he can bring it to our midfield.

-good luck to everyone on Friday (is the game on tv? What channel anyone? )

-I reckon there is quality to be added to the squad post CL qualification (fingers crossed)

-seen the Scott Sinclair banner in NI - complete disgrace, what sane people must think of this is beyond belief. He is a real talent and should be welcomed by one and all into the scottish game. Acts like this must deter decent people.

-don't want their tainted titles, but I would encourage fans of all clubs to unite and force a review- cheats are cheats, but for the SFA to condone it makes a mockery of football and our country.

-I'm still clinging to hope of Paddy in green and white hoops with a no. 7 on his back.

-I reckon johnny Hayes will bust a gut for us this year.

All The best troops.

See BBC sport reporting that aiden mcgeady is off to Sunderland.

What's does everyone think - has he made the most of his career, developed significantly since he left the hoops?

I thought it was a bold statement by moving to Eastern Europe when he left us, but I never felt he delivered that much in England. It was time for him to move when he did go - I felt he was never going to progress any further at Celtic - similar to Forrest in that respect (in my opinion) .

Good luck to him - I enjoyed his time in the hoops.

Island celt

1.) 04 Jul 2017 19:08:35
I always enjoyed watching Aiden, The twist and turn for the Scott McDonald goal at Pittodrie a stand out memory for me. He's looked like his old self this season plenty game time and the chance to show what he could do regulary. I'd have accepted him back at Paradise no problem. Good luck to him.

2.) 04 Jul 2017 19:06:02
he picked Ireland over prodland, that was enough for me to like him, i wish i had the chance to play for Ireland and Celtic.

3.) 04 Jul 2017 20:43:22
He had his time with us and we got great service but, I never believe in bringing any player back who voluntarily left us (either for money, bigger league or both)
They are never going to be the same and we will always reflect back to when they gave us their best. Returning is a bit like admitting, I made a mistake leaving.
Same with aging stars looking for a final pay packet and how it was always an ambition to play for us. Yeh, right. If that was the case why wait until their twilight years? Why not fulfill that ambition while they are in peak condition?

I have never rated miller as a player
Always thought he was over rated - everywhere he played
No Johnston was a great player, that's why I can't stick him, a judas with talent. Miller just strikes me as a prick.

I had just been to my first ever Scotland game vs Cyprus at the old hampden (wooden seats) and Johnston scored a cracking overhead kick. I was just properly getting into football and didn't realise he was an ex celt. I was delighted when my dad told me a bit of history, and ecstatic when the news of him signing shortly followed. When he then signed for them and was pictured with souness I was devistated.
Never to be forgiven in my eyes.

Don't agree with you jamie
Fergus tenure was tough but I believe it set us up for where we are today. I don't care if he made money, he laid out his plan and walked away big deal. Who cares if he was a Celtic man or not he saved the club albeit he did it for a profit, but he was prominent in our salvation.

We are the top club in Scottish football and long may it last.
You don't have to love the man but I Believe he is a man to be revered for what he did. Especially as history has shown what it could have done to our wonderful club.
