Press conference rescheduled today for a 'major' announcement. Any guesses?

1.) 07 Apr 2017 13:18:48
@JimTim gossip I heard was either planning permission granted for their hotel complex or.
Patrick Roberts signing on a 4 year deal.

2.) 07 Apr 2017 13:28:50
Maybe both!

3.) 07 Apr 2017 13:55:45
Could be the hotel Timbo, good shout.

4.) 07 Apr 2017 13:53:55
Will be hotel PR thing could have been done at Lennox town.

5.) 07 Apr 2017 14:02:24
Hope it's paddy Roberts staying!

6.) 07 Apr 2017 14:32:15
Is it not brendan signing a longer contract.

7.) 07 Apr 2017 14:52:14
Just read it could be new contract for gaffer.
Don't know how true that is though.

8.) 07 Apr 2017 14:57:01
its footage of brown actually controlling the ball lol. (a wee post for the panty wetters lol. )

9.) 07 Apr 2017 14:59:30
new deal for rodgers.



21 Feb 2017 15:07:09
Craig Burley he seems to be the man in the know, claiming Dembele is off to Chelsea in the summer. Any word on this 007/ 002?

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement that makes anything certain. Manchester United and Bayern Munich have both been aware of Moussa Dembele since his time at PSG and were both interested in signing him when he opted for Fulham as a 16 year old. Newcastle, Lille, Juventus, Napoli, Liverpool, Wolfsburg, Marseille, Everton and Spurs had also been looking at Dembele since the start of last season before he opted to move to Celtic for the playing time. Recent glances from Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Monaco have led Celtic to put an unrealistic price on the player that could block any move in the short term - although Chelsea may well seek to get an early agreement for a summer transfer with a cash deal - potentially augmented by a player.}

1.) 21 Feb 2017 20:54:59
Much appreciated. I'd take your word over his. But, is "no agreement that makes anything certain" the same as no agreement at all?

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement at all Jim.}

2.) 21 Feb 2017 21:33:15
Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



25 Jan 2017 07:23:06
Liverpool reportedly making contact about Onyekuru 😕

1.) 25 Jan 2017 12:33:18
As quoted by his agent! Think the games have begun with this kids representatives! Clubs Chief exec has also stated he is to good to move to Scotland and should go to Germany!

2.) 25 Jan 2017 13:43:09
To good he's playing with an unheard of Belgian team, think they're trying to drive the price up better to leave this one alone me thinks



19 Dec 2016 04:05:54
Just reading there we had scouts at the Anderlecht Eupen game last night. Could lead to nothing of course but Belgium and particularly Anderlecht could be a good hunting ground for us imo and there's a few players there who wet my lips. Tielemans and Dendoncker (scored twice) the pick of the bunch, like Dembele, widely considered Europe's better prospects. There's Kara who I have seen mentioned by a few folk on here and is a classy centre half, a big athlete too. Or possibly from Eupen, they have a handy wing forward by the name of Henry Onyekuru.

1.) 19 Dec 2016 09:07:58
All good that you might be looking at Tielemans and Dendoncker but that is as far as that one will go. Kara, yeah sure he could be a good signing for you, but he'd cost you £5mil plus. That doesn't exactly work with the Celtic transfer policy (buy low sell high) . If I'm being honest aswell I don't see many players wanting to leave belgium and come to Scotland, they have a better quality of league over there. Unless ofcourse it is players who aren't getting first team action.

2.) 19 Dec 2016 10:17:07
OSA, thankfully I don't think 5m will be an issue now; with Rodgers in, Dermot Desmond having a bit of a wake up, and no John Park/ Peter Lawell transfer team. I think we'll now start to see the correct levels of investment, that we should have all along.

As for players coming to Scotland from Belgium. I don't see why Glasgow Celtic, playing in the Champions League regularly can't attract players from Belgium. We could always offer them more money if we're not attractive enough already. Dembele came from a better quality league.

3.) 19 Dec 2016 10:36:30
Maybe Celtic will change their policy, maybe they will spend some of that money. Most players worth going for in Belgium play for the bigger sides, meaning they are already on a big wage and have European football each year, not to mention the football is far more competitive in Belgium. Dembele to Celtic was always a strange one to me, Maybe the lure of European football and Scotland being of a lesser quality made him and his agent think it was a good move?

4.) 19 Dec 2016 11:02:32
OSA, I understand where you're coming from. Take Dendoncker for example. A young player, already playing for the biggest club in their homeland, already with the prospect of European football, might not see Celtic as a step forward. Then again they might. That said player might not be Belgian either, and might see Celtic as a more attractive option (I'm biased aye, but I would) . I still think we have the financial muscle too, to offer a player in Belgium a better salary. And let's face it, money often talks. The average Anderlecht player salary is 600k pa, or roughly 12k a week. We're safe there. Anderlecht would be well within their rights to demand £20m for Dendoncker. But shy bairns get nothing, and unless we try we won't know. The club has adopted the wrong mentality for several years, and sadly it's rubbed off on a lot of the fans. End of, I'd dare to dream and go for a player like that, and I've seen stranger moves than a player going from Anderlecht to Celtic.

{Ed001's Note - Celtic do have a lot more money than any team in Belgium. Also Belgian teams are built around selling to survive, so they are always willing to accept offers that match their asking price for a player.}

5.) 19 Dec 2016 11:21:03
I thought we did have Ed, that's a good added point about their strategy as clubs.

{Ed001's Note - thank you.}

6.) 19 Dec 2016 11:44:12
Wages won't be the issue it'll be the asking price, if i'm being honest I hope you do manage to improve your squad, Scotland needs a team doing well in Europe right now.



16 Dec 2016 08:40:44
Morning Ed, quick question if you have the time. What have you heard about Hibs approaching us for KC?

{Ed007's Note - It seems to be the worst kept secret in football for a good few months.}

1.) 16 Dec 2016 16:45:12
Cheers. I didn't realise the news had broken about him having a medical. I wasn't sure if the papers were just putting two and two together.

Having a bit of a moment here bhoys, can we win the league on sunday if Aberdeen don't win on friday?

1.) 28 Mar 2017 13:54:21
I don't think the Aberdeen results matter. According to sly sports after the Scotland game we will win the league if we win on Sunday.

2.) 28 Mar 2017 14:16:41
We can win the league without kicking a ball if Dundee beat Aberdeen.

3.) 28 Mar 2017 15:03:25
Thanks lads. Got to organise a bit of a get together for a mate on sunday and I'm not missing that one. Pub it is!

4.) 28 Mar 2017 17:51:49
i've a funny feeling we'll win it on friday night with dundee beating aberdeen, i'd rather aberdeen won to keep well ahead of sevco as we can win it for ourselves by beating the jambos at tynecastle on sunday.

5.) 28 Mar 2017 17:55:25
Does anybody want dundee to win?, takes a bit of the shine off it for me when that happens, would prefer to win it against hearts myself.

6.) 28 Mar 2017 21:47:43
Bhoys got a bad feeling about Tyncastle on Sunday? No idea why just feels tricky for some reason. Probably go and win 7-1 now😂.



18 Mar 2017 21:17:04
Can any of our bhoys in Oz, or anybody else, say anything about the boy Riley McGree? He's been called up for Australia to replace Rogic and Tosh is meant to be looking at him.

1.) 18 Mar 2017 21:24:56
jamiebhoy7 might be able to get that info for you jim, his uncle is a youth coach in australia and coached rogic, so he might know about this boy.

2.) 18 Mar 2017 22:57:01
Had a wee look at him on youtube on the back of your comment Jim Tim. I know these youtube videos can make anyone look good but he's 18 with only 13 senior appearances so I would say 12 minutes of highlights isn't bad for that game time. Fast on the ball and good awareness of where his team-mates are. The boy looks to have the tools to develop in to a very good player. I would support any effort to try and bring him into the fold.

3.) 19 Mar 2017 08:20:23
Interesting jamiebhoy7 trivia there. Haven't seen him post in ages, thought he might have gone chasing Isa round Norway or something. Does he still get in the live chat?

Just watched Adelaide v Brisbane there Murdoch, couldn't find any clips more than 40secs on google. Crazy last ten minutes where Brisbane's keeper got sent off for an elbow at 96 mins and a midfielder had to go in goal for the pen. Adelaide scored it and won 2-1.

Anyway, on one game McGree looks tidy. Plays in the middle of a midfield 3, good on the ball, finding space with it at his feet and in little interchanges. Quite dynamic. Tried a few worldie long rangers that were poor and started to tire. On the whole, and only on one game, looks promising. Had a good game against a team who are supposed to be a lot better.

4.) 19 Mar 2017 09:40:34
Sorry jim but who is tosh? Haha.

5.) 19 Mar 2017 10:01:49
Hi JT, JB67

Nearly right JT just a different country lol been away for 12 weeks and back less than a fortnight mate and had loads and had plenty to do upon coming back!

JB67 is right as usual lol I have emailed my uncle so see what he says in the next day or so he was right about Rogic and also sadly about Jackson Irvine who never got a chance @ Celtic and yet within 8 weeks of signing for Ross County was the best player in Scotland outwith us and now nearly single handily holding up Burton Albion in the championship with double digit (ish) goals from CH and Midfield!

6.) 19 Mar 2017 13:25:55
Good to hear from you Jamie. I'll look forward to that scouting report if that's how your uncle called it with Rogic and Irvine.

AG, Tosh McKinlay. He's working as a scout for us now. I didn't know that until I read it was him that was watching Simunovic when we signed him.



11 Mar 2017 19:38:33
I think it's only right at this time that all the Celtic Family come together, show that football isn't a barrier, and spare a thought for James Tavernier's @rsehole tomorrow. The last one probably still hasn't repaired. Poor lad.

1.) 11 Mar 2017 19:58:42
😂😂 fekn class mate!

Mon the fkn HOOPS!


Chris1888 🍀🍀🍀.

2.) 11 Mar 2017 20:10:18
I can't wait chris. I might be overexuberant, I might even end up with egg on my face. But I just can't wait. It's like Santy is coming. I might just get myself tucked in and asleep, to reduce the wait.

3.) 11 Mar 2017 21:24:00
I kno we are superior to any team in the league but i always rubbish masel (not physically lol) b4 these games! Dunno if its jus me but. can't stop hinkin aboot aner thumping to them. running them ragged!



4.) 11 Mar 2017 21:35:58
Ed. i hope people don't read that the wrong way as in i "rub" myself 😂 u could of at least put s#it lol



{Ed007's Note - It's the autofilter that changes that word, Chris. :-)

5.) 11 Mar 2017 22:34:24
Ah ok. lol



6.) 12 Mar 2017 03:03:16
Ur sounding a wee bit paranoid there chrissy bhoy. Haha 😂.

7.) 12 Mar 2017 06:25:12
Naw, not at all mate, soon as that 1st bottle eh frosty jacks is doon me the nerves arw gone! 😉






07 Feb 2017 08:04:37
I was delighted to see us in for Henry Onyekuru, but the whole spitting his dummy out with his club and going AWOL was a bit of a cause for concern. I chuckled just then when reading a move to Celtic being talked up by none other than, wait for it, Peter Odemwingie.

1.) 07 Feb 2017 10:43:43
I was just reading that JT and he's hardly the role model for advice lol.

2.) 07 Feb 2017 11:22:00
hes in the celtic park car park in his car camped out waiting for the summer transfer window as we speak lol.

3.) 07 Feb 2017 12:05:13
Exactly what I was thinking Tick.

Nice one James 😃.



13 Jan 2017 11:36:55
Morning Ed, if you get chance, do you know if Bastia and Anderlecht are actually talking to us about Ambrose and Boyata respectively? Seems to be a few rags on these rumours.

{Ed007's Note - Yes mate, Ambrose will more than likely be in France to finalise the deal this weekend and Boyata will move back to Belgium by next weekend but not necessarily to Anderlecht as there are a few teams interested in him as well as some interest from the Championship and perhaps Wolves.}

1.) 13 Jan 2017 14:23:53
Thanks a lot, that's why you da man. Reckon there could be a CB on the horizon then?

{Ed007's Note - If the exits happen it's got be as we'd be extremely short at CB. I should have said that Bastia initially wanted Ambrose on a pre-contract but Celtic told the player to tell them they won't be difficult to deal with this month and the Bastia coach today has said he will have 2 new CBs by Monday.}

2.) 13 Jan 2017 15:11:43
I'd be chuffed if we could get 1-2m between them! That's what I was thinking, if they both leave, one injury in that department and we're snookered.

3.) 13 Jan 2017 16:47:04
Jim Tim

We have Simunovic, Sviachenko, Toure and Lustig who can all play at centre half so not sure how 1 injury will leave us snookered. We also have the option of 3 at the back and both Tierney and Izzy have played in there this season so think we are covered for now.

I would like to see us thinning out the midfield a bit as we are still heavy on numbers in there.

4.) 13 Jan 2017 15:05:06
Ed I've heard Bailley is off to Seria A as well?

5.) 13 Jan 2017 15:37:20
Ed i heard that Ambrose wanted to stay in Scotland because he was trying to get UK citizenship and only had to wait till july. Is that bollocks?

{Ed007's Note - You need to continue living in the UK after you are awarded citizenship so Efe could only sign for a British team so Ambrose can't apply for citizenship AND sign a pre-contract with a European team.


6.) 13 Jan 2017 19:47:43
Niall, I think it would. Say Erik got injured for several weeks. That leaves us Kolo and Jozo (who have question marks over playing 90mins every game) and young Ajer, who to be fair to the lad is still learning the ropes (although I'd like to see him get featured) . I'd put Lustig out the equation too as you need two players for every position, and may be needed at RB (worst case scenarios we're talking now) . Having to adjust your shape based on tactics is fine. Having to do it due to injury shows a lack of depth. Ideally you want two players for every position, and an extra one for each dept., imo. That means 5 CBs, if Lustig was the 5th, that only leaves us with one RB (again, worst case scenario) . Hope that makes sense, but you have to prepare for the worst.

7.) 13 Jan 2017 20:49:34
Ed that being the case that Ambrose needs to stay in uk to gain uk citizenship then he is going nowhere. can't see why he would go now

{Ed007's Note - So why's he planned to hold talks with a team in France?}

Newcastle are my second side AG. And right now, I wouldn't split Brown and Armstrong for Shelvey. Good player though. Can pick a pass, which is what Rodgers is said he's looking for. I think it will be a player who ays a bit further up though, more of a CAM.

How can we know the cost and not the name? Teasing us there JB. I think we will perhaps finally see PL's "6-8m" player this summer. I think we'll have people here now who will actually be able to find the value rather than just talk about it.

Funniest thing you've said all season UJ. How is Scottish football's most gifted talent doing? Picked himself off the three-goal mark yet?

Just my guesses. I think Whittacer is another he's pally with. Personally I'd like to see Celtic vs. Scotland just to see how many we'd beat them by.

I could see Kevin Thomson in that CM gap, from what I gather him and Broony are still good mates. He'd probably give Mulgrew a bell too for that LB slot maybe?

25 Apr 2017 15:03:00
That's what I'm thinking fab. A wing forward, as well as a CAM. I think BR said he was after 3 quality players did he not? Either a CB or a Keeper for me then.

You're right IC, but I'd be a lot more comfortable with him fit. Hopefully this time at least Griff will be available.
