Turnbull failed medical surely not?


1.) 25 Jun 2019 19:50:34
What a total farce.

2.) 25 Jun 2019 20:44:54
The banter years! We've become a bigger laughing stock than Sevco.

3.) 25 Jun 2019 21:19:21
This is a perfect scenario for Peter Lawwell though. come start of the 2019/ 20 season or even the Winter transfer window, he can say we were heavily involved in trying to get players in. God knows how trying we have been.

4.) 25 Jun 2019 21:38:10
So the boy has a medical issue and we are a laughing stock? How? More of a laughing stock if we sign a player that has an issue surely?

5.) 25 Jun 2019 22:05:26
The whole thing has been amateurish and unprofessional if you can't see that then you're clearly blind. To the statements on Twitter, Kennedys comments, the leaked photo in a Celtic top and now it turns out he might not even pass the medical. laughing stock! If you're anyone but a Celtic fan.

6.) 26 Jun 2019 00:03:49
Why would that be bravetart. Because a player failed his medical. And they have signed about 5 free contracts.

7.) 26 Jun 2019 00:07:48
Bravetart, I agree with most of what your saying buddy but bigger laughing stock than sevco! Behave urself for godsake. this is the same sevco who have went through 5 managers in 3 season while we’ve won 9 trophies in a row! I agree that our transfer dealings are a shambles and if we know how to make an arse of it we usually do, but come on mate let’s calm down a bit eh.

8.) 26 Jun 2019 00:08:22
big hartson had an issue with his knee and failed a medical for the gers but did vert well for us.



03 Mar 2019 10:13:45
BR linked with a move for Boyata (and McGinn) is that it started? Can we expect him to come in for McGreggor, Forrest, KT or maybe Sinclair?


1.) 03 Mar 2019 10:29:27
Tbh mgregor or Tierney would never go unless they got told there off specially not with him.

2.) 03 Mar 2019 19:26:13
I’m not so sure Tierney never distanced himself from the Everton speculation with media reports suggesting he was open to the change.
Boyata will go to Leicester on a Bosman for certain.

3.) 03 Mar 2019 23:29:39
I think Boyata takes a few games to get back to form even after a short spell out through injury but when he has played a few games he is definitely a fine centre half.

4.) 04 Mar 2019 17:41:53
I think we will probably struggle to buy a better defender than Boyata, on his day he is very good player. Yes he has the odd lapse of concentration but if he didn't he would still be at city I suppose.



14 Jan 2019 20:51:12
No to James McCarthy and just no to Ya Ya Toure. A 35 year old midfielder is a bigger gamble than a 36 year old striker.


1.) 15 Jan 2019 01:46:06
Sorry JFP, I would love McCarthy to sign, even if it was only for 6 months.



12 Jan 2019 18:24:52
Bit disappointed if as is being suggested there are no more signings in this transfer window. While Bayo and Weah are undoubtedly exciting prospects that's what they are. Prospects. I'm fine with that in essence and think we are well covered for rest of season in central defense.

However would have liked us to bring in an experienced proven striker even one at the latter stages of his career. Dare I say it I would have been happy if we'd signed Defoe. I know BR and the clubs preference is to nurture and develop young talent but I think a blend of youth and experience has a lot to be said for it.

We'd have known what we were getting which would have removed some of the concerns about unknown quantities up front irrespective of their potential going into the remainder of the season. Just my thoughts fellow TIMS.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 18:46:23
Defoe? really! Never I would always want a young player instead of over the hill people coming for a swansong, I never liked these signings and i did not believe they helped improved the team long term. In fact i always believed that the manager in these signings was stating his intention to leave.
I would be happy with someone like Jeffery Brumma coming in and Boyata moving out in this window, Then another CH and RB brought in the summer.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 18:56:21
BR never said there will be no more signings he said there will not be a marquee signing.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 19:19:40
I'm not sure we are well covered in defence jfp, we need to plan for our cb pairing leaving, boyata as far as I'm concerned should never be near the first team if he is leaving in the summer, he should never have got back in the team in the first place but that's another days work. What happens if someone wants to buy benkovic can Leicester sell him or do they need to wait till the loan is up? The way he's been playing I think there'll be clubs sniffing about him. If we lost 2 cb's we must replace them.

4.) 12 Jan 2019 21:24:05
Jfp stop stressing bud are we really scared of that lot c'mon reality check bhoys sort the away form out and we will win the league at a canter. New bhoys signed will be hungry and can only be good for competition for places. Defoe? I was concerned when it was laudrup de boer etc in their prime but Defoe how did it come to that 🙈.

5.) 12 Jan 2019 21:25:07
Steph I’ve had a couple and prob best I don’t get on the subject of that rat Boyata 😏.

6.) 12 Jan 2019 21:30:31
Need to stop believing what the SMSM keep spewing.
There won't be any £8-9 million signings but BR never said we won't sign another player.
We will bring in another 2 or 3 players.

7.) 12 Jan 2019 22:04:53
Ffs panic stations!

Still plenty of time to do business and nobody said there wouldn't be.

Defoe is finished, its beginning to look like The rangers were his only option. He has rapidly declined and personally i think he will struggle to get a game in front of kyle lafferty he is that bad. Not even a league 1 side down south put an offer in.

8.) 12 Jan 2019 22:35:36
He is on silly money overpaid. imo but still think he will do ok.

9.) 12 Jan 2019 23:40:25
Phil have u not heard he knocked back English sides to become a zombie? Aye right.

10.) 13 Jan 2019 02:00:13
Personally think Defoe will actually not be that bad a signing for them the chances Morelos misses he will put them away, but also the track record of older players coming to Scotland thinking it will be a walk over aren’t that good so will need to wait and see . But to our signings I genuinely think our signings are young and hungry and willing prove there worth but I think there’s a few panty wetters in here desperately trying to drag us down. Fingers crossed a few more new faces come in to freshen things up as I think a few will leave on loan .

11.) 13 Jan 2019 11:13:41
Boyata is definitely leaving at the latest the end of the season. Benkovic will also return to Leicester aswell. Therefore it’s imperative that we sign a new CB now. Don’t want to wait until Champs league qualifiers and hope the new guy settles instantly.
I know there’s less availability in this window but there are still good players available. What happens once Boyata signs pre contract elsewhere if club decide to keep him till end of season if he picks up niggling injuries he won’t want to risk himself and personally once a player has committed future to other club I for one don’t want him playing for us.
Benkovic can as we know be recalled and if they sell McGuire to Man U, sack manager or 1 of their CB gets injured he can be recalled.
Everywhere else except RB seems to be strong enough to still win league but for me CB and RB must be addressed in this window.
Iv no doubt we will sign players for both positions I hope they are permanent signings with experience, still got 18 days to sort it, I’m just surprised Iv not heard us linked with any CB’s really in tabloids.
Rodgers keeps stating he felt he needed more in final 3rd and is happy with new acquisitions but hasn’t mentioned much about the need to significantly strengthen at the back.

12.) 13 Jan 2019 12:12:44
Like it or not we are in a title race. I understand people saying if we sort our away form out we will be grand, however I haven't seen anything so far this season to suggest it's about to suddenly change. My preference in this window would have been tried and tested experience, we have plenty of young projects already and with youth comes inconsistency. Don't blow it Brendan.



09 Jan 2019 19:53:10
BR looked calm and collected in Dubai and seemed very confident there would be other signings. I know centre half and right back positions could be problematic particularly come the summer but I'd prefer to see us signing a proven experienced centre forward in this window to compliment the project youth lads we've brought in who I think will be exciting to watch.


1.) 09 Jan 2019 20:48:47
Jfp1888 we now have 3 strikers 4 if We count the griff. We play one up front. Where does another striker fit In?

2.) 09 Jan 2019 23:54:35
Will depend on formation of course, however we now have option of including ones that play two strikers.

3.) 10 Jan 2019 00:07:26
Personally so would have preferred 1 established striker in this window but now we have went down the exciting prospect route there’s no room for any more.
I’d rather we signed proven CB between 23-30 would be ideal age but more important of course is ability level. Would be great if we could get Benkovic on a permanent deal.
A back up LB and a 1st team RB are also needing addressed. I think we will sign all 3 especially if we can send 4 or 5 fringe players back out in loan to free up some wages.

4.) 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.

Have always defended Lennon thought he was the right man to get us over the line after BRexit which he did and thought he therefore deserved the opportunity. But he must carry the can for last nights team selection most notably McGreggor at left back a failed experiment his buddy Brendan tried previously to our cost at the Bronx. Add to that Johnstone, Sinclair, Morgan questions. But answers also required from Peter Lawell another man I've always stood by but he watched as our transfer window was panned in last summer and has done so again this season. I've had a season ticket longer than I care to remember and unlikely ever to give it up but woke up disillusioned enough to consider it this morning and I can't be alone. Big concern is (1) it has only made recruiting quality players more difficult and (2) which players may now be enticed away. Stop the rot Celtic whether we want to accept it or not the club previously known as Rangers are indeed coming.


1.) 14 Aug 2019 09:15:16
Sums it up!

2.) 14 Aug 2019 09:26:45
Kennedy and duff could have got us over that line last season
That has been a smoke screen for Lennon for to long now.

3.) 14 Aug 2019 09:58:41
neil lennon finally proved to us all last night. he does not have what it takes to drive our club forward. he is only puppet master to peter lawell. get rid of the two of them. now.

4.) 14 Aug 2019 12:11:26
Slept on it and Lennon was wrong choice for this season. BR clearly didn't like something to go to Leicester. PL is a disgrace not interested in the fans.



10 Aug 2019 13:56:06
Well done Celtic and Neil Lennon. 12 goals in 2 games. Ajer a superstar in the making.


1.) 10 Aug 2019 14:09:18
Somebody get a hankie for Obese Boyd and Bad-yin McFadden paira dicks. Stuttering start, poor goal to lose, but what an emphatic recovery and dominant display. Ajer, Bitton, Forrest and Ntcham were superb, with another Griff-special and very good improved second half from Bolingoli and Broony who both had a struggling start.
Another goal-fest and three more points - what more do we want?
Maybe a couple of quality additions to enhance our dominance and further our European ambitions. Well done Celts.

2.) 10 Aug 2019 14:30:31
Brown was terrible.

He will be the slowest player on the pitch in 95% of our games.

Its embarrassing watching him chase back as he never gets close.

He can't press teams as his legs are gone.

Great servant but he needs to be phased out this season.

3.) 10 Aug 2019 15:14:50
Thought brown played well.



08 Aug 2019 08:37:42
I assume KT is away then? If it was his decision in our 9 in a row season with the potential for a historic 10 while understandable both from a football and financial perspective it also places him in the same bracket as Rodgers in that it would make the previous 'Celtic Man' rhetoric laughable. No 'Celtic Man' would go at 22 years of age with history in the making.

The only real 'Celtic men' and women at Parkhead are those paying £500 plus every year to watch us not players who £25,000 a week isn't enough to play for us.

I wish the lad no ill will but it's Kieran who? for me. Good bit of business on Celtic's part though if it's £25m for a player with a major injury question mark we played half of last season without and I for one only want players who want to play for Celtic. All the best son but like Rodgers before you you've forfeited your potential legend status.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 08:48:08
Well said, got to agree with that, no player is bigger than the club and I've said before on here, if there's a hint of a player going, get rid, i. e. TH and John Collins!

2.) 08 Aug 2019 08:57:49
sorry JFP,
KT is not dumping us half-way through the season with a very important run-in to complete like BR did.
The bhoy is ambitious and has the opportunity to get new challenges and possibly even move on to bigger things.
Celtic have to play 4 fecking qualifying ties for CL while 4 fecking English teams don't.
That pretty much sums up our standing with Europe (like Benfica, Ajax etc. ) in the hard light of day.
Bear in mind that he has not played for us for quite a while but we still managed the Treble Treble.
So, while sorry to see him leave, I see it as a good bit of business for Celtic and KT and we move on.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 09:03:40
It is a big blow to lose such a talent and like our previous manager it was something I, personally never saw coming so soon.
However, the days of one-club Celtic men are dwindling fast and the amount of testimonials staged these days are proof of that.
The realization for me in the seventies that we were a selling-club and players actually wanted to leave us was hard to take, but these days it's a case of appreciate special talent while you can and enjoy them at the time, because managers and players come and go but Celtic FC and the support (as you say) are for life.
Fortunately unlike other clubs, we have a very long and distinguished history of producing and welcoming some great players - some of which become legends - and that will continue.

4.) 08 Aug 2019 09:11:51
Good to hear from you JFP! Only way is down once they leave! On a plus note big Hatem looks some player!

5.) 08 Aug 2019 09:22:42
I am gutted that KT has wished to leave us, but he is not a Brendan Rodgers. KT has came through the Celtic system and managed to become Scotlands young player of the year 3 seasons in a row, which is the first time this has ever been achieved. He will go down as a Celtic great and the best left back I have witnessed in my 40 years of watching the hoops.
At the end of the day he is still one of us and I am sure he will continue to do us all proud down south.

6.) 08 Aug 2019 09:52:29
We've survived without him since Xmas last year so life gies on i live the bhoys bones but he's not bigger than this club and better players than him have left it's good business as long as we use the money over to you Pedro.

7.) 08 Aug 2019 10:09:53
I, like the rest of the guys and Girls on here am shocked KT has decided to leave when we’re on the cusp of history! And spare me he was forced out garbage eh, he’s wanted to go!

Wouldn’t put the boy in the rodgers category but, he was a rat pure and simple! But I think it proves that real Celtic man tag doesn’t exist anymore in football. he's left at 22 years old on the cusp of 9 and 10,and real Celtic men do not and never would do that! Forget this EPL more money and chance to become the worlds best left back stuff, that could have been sorted after 9 and 10 IMO!

But I wish the wee Guy nothing but the best and the club gets a great deal! The only problem I see now is we’re weaker now without him and Sinclair on that left if your replacing them with boli and Morgan! Money needs spent ASAP on that side of the pitch!

8.) 08 Aug 2019 10:32:40
What if KT had no desire to leave but PL has told him £25m benefits the club more than having him on board for another 2-3 years? None of us know the facts behind the scenes and what has been said or done.

9.) 08 Aug 2019 15:40:30
Lh86 or he could have had his career ended this season. You've got to take your chance when it comes because it might never come again.

10.) 08 Aug 2019 15:56:26
Dont be so naive.

11.) 08 Aug 2019 16:30:26
Kev he'll never get the chance to do 10 in a row with his boyhood heroes again that's for sure.

12.) 09 Aug 2019 19:41:17
If KT had no desire to leave he wouldn’t be in London right now! If he really wanted to stay and made that clear then lawell could do hee haw about it!



07 Jul 2019 09:49:51
The press and pundits have been trying to sell KT since he broke into the first team as they did since day one of BRs reign so I haven't paid much attention to the speculation. However couple of thoughts. I'd be really disappointed in KT and surprised if he chose to leave at 22 years of age with the chance of being remembered with the 10 plus he saw the fans reaction to BRs departure. Doesn't tie up with being one of our own. Celtic will already have made him a very wealthy man in two years time and personally with 10 years plus ahead of him career wise nobody could have paid me enough to leave Parkhead in his position. On another note if he does choose to go the logic of the league he plays in being a factor in the asking price is lost on me. A loaf in Scotland costs the same as a loaf in England. The only three relevant factors in establishing the sale price are (1) how good is he (2) how much does the buying club have in their pocket and (3) how desperate are the selling club in this case Celtic for the money raised. The last point is a factor only in as much as the point at which we couldn't knock back the cash is obviously lower than what EPL clubs could knock back given the differential in revenue. That being said we're not desperate so why sell unless KT himself wants away and if we do it should be for top dollar. Table £25m as a starter then we'll start talking would be my position which I don't think is unrealistic or excessive by an stretch of the imagination.


1.) 07 Jul 2019 10:44:14
Can we stop this media trying to sell players p*sh? He's open to a move. Quite clearly.

2.) 07 Jul 2019 15:23:14
My name is KT i want to play for celtic but i also have to think of my career. If celtic were in epl i would be here for life but sadly that can't be. I have to go and test myself as i am a professional sportsman.
Though i am waiting on the daily papers telling me where and when i will go. Aye right.



20 Jun 2019 19:21:20
Personally very disappointed to see PC Lustig leave. A great servant to the club and unlike some premature departures who were meant to be supporters when they arrived you will always be welcome back. All the best Mika and many thanks for your contribution to the cause. God Bless.

Lennon’s bad decisions cost us the game and is indefensible 100%. McGreggor at left back was an insane experiment which had already failed under BR at the Bronx. However what is EMBARRASSING is the personal attack’s from Celtic supporters and allegations about personal problems the man may or not have. He’s had enough of that to Scotland’s shame since the first day he arrived in the country. That isn’t just indefensible it’s EMBARRASSING and unforgivable.

No matter what the crack is or whose to blame or how disappointed we are me included there is absolutely no need or justification for calling Lennon a clown or makinf reference to any personal problems he may or may not have. Leave that to many others in this country who will gladly oblige. I think he’s due some of respect for his contribution as a player and as a manager previously considerably more so than the Rodent.

After last night for the first time I have a? over Lennon with respect to team selection playing McGreggor at left back, Morgan, Johnstone and no Sinclair etc. plus £10m of defensive talent on the bench. But fair point United Ireland the board let BRexit and Lennon down. I for one would never give him abuse there have been enough people that have done that since the day he first arrived in Scotland to our shame.

Rodgers got his answer to McGreggor at left back at the Bronx. Why did Lennon need to try it again?
