Big Tom Rogic signed a new contract, 2 massive signings for us already.


1.) 16 May 2018 19:03:28
where did you hear this?

2.) 16 May 2018 19:28:16
I heard that too but not officially yet. Fantastic negotiations 👏🍀🇮🇪.

3.) 16 May 2018 19:41:01
There was rumours at the weekend a deal was close. Great news if true. Hopefully Griffiths also and would love to see McGregor get an improved deal and extension, would be well earned.

4.) 16 May 2018 19:52:50
Rumours are he hasn’t but are advanced talks, rumours came from fake account.

5.) 16 May 2018 19:55:48
Great to get Tam signed up. Any info on Stuart Armstrong?

6.) 16 May 2018 20:03:07
Yeah, it’s from a fake account, fake news unfortunately. 😥.

7.) 16 May 2018 20:36:56
I’ve been severely trolled here! My bad for getting everyone’s hopes up! Don’t believe everything you hear is the lesson of today.

8.) 16 May 2018 21:58:08
I'd love him to sign on for a couple more years, unreal to think he came from the Nike ID? Academy! Also looking forward to when we eventually see Leo Mazis, as he is apparently very similar to rogic's style of play.

9.) 16 May 2018 22:33:58
Stan wee McGregor signed a four year contract this season I am sure?

10.) 17 May 2018 06:22:23
No it runs until 2020 Kev. Plenty time but he should be given better terms plus an extension like KT and Griffiths. He has earned it with his contribution since BR came in.

11.) 17 May 2018 07:19:08
He signed a four years contract in September Stan.

12.) 17 May 2018 09:39:59
Not sure why i thought it ran until 2020 Kev. That's great news.

13.) 18 May 2018 01:33:29
Tell me that fake account has dembele on a similar deal 😂😂😂.

14.) 19 May 2018 15:17:56
Well Ken should have fought your corner and stuck your guns. You were right. Changes the lesson lol.



11 May 2018 08:10:32
Fabian Schar has been linked to us in the Spanish media? Apparently a €4m euro release clause and a very expeirienced defender. Anyone heard anything further?


1.) 11 May 2018 12:17:22
Swiss International, European experience, seems to score a good amount of goals from CB and at 26 is probably just coming into his peak. Ticks a lot of boxes.

2.) 11 May 2018 12:52:09
My thinking exactly Kev! He was Basel’s Penalty taker, got a decent conversion rate from the spot! Wonder if any of the EDs hold information on him? I’m thinking there could be something in this as he played for Hoffenheim, which may link back to congerton from his time in the bundesliga.

3.) 11 May 2018 14:57:09
I was hoping he was just really dominant at corners Ken.

4.) 11 May 2018 15:16:10
I would be happy with this for that sort of price. He's comfortable on the ball dribbling out from the back and spraying passes. Would suit our style. Good age and experience of playing at the top level too.

5.) 11 May 2018 16:18:49
He sounds like an ideal candidate. which means we probably will keep Boyata lol.

6.) 11 May 2018 18:50:40
He sounds like the ideal candidate. Which means we will probably sign his da.

7.) 11 May 2018 21:14:59
And to top it all off he's left footed! Would be over the moon if this is true.

8.) 12 May 2018 00:17:16
A great amount of excitement for someone we are probably not interested in signing.

9.) 12 May 2018 01:30:46
@tompo88 thought he was right footed?
OMC- wheesht. A 4m 26yr old cb international is a decent place to start. A Spanish hack/ agent kicked this all off. Not a bad or unrealistic target. At least the dafty transfer link train is off and rolling. You'll probably get a cut price fare for a wee day trip or two. Hop on.

10.) 12 May 2018 11:01:18
On second check you're correct rglen8 he is indeed right footed, just getting confused as Fifa I played him LCB due to his 4 star weak foot lol.

11.) 12 May 2018 11:11:36
Guilty as well. thank God for the old fifa database haha.

12.) 12 May 2018 12:41:41
OMC that's what the close season is for. Reading rubbish about who we are being connected to and getting excited about it.
How boring would it be if we didnt.

13.) 12 May 2018 16:26:21
Watched a couple of video's (yes I know) but this guy looks well worth 4 mill one video was his highlights v Real Madrid and although they lost 3-0 he looked impressive.

14.) 19 May 2018 01:49:29
I hate the close season and the twelve billion connections to players we never sign. We all know what we need, what we don’t know is who we will go for. We can’t compete with the richer clubs and as soon as you read an epl team are also in for a player that immediately rules them out.

I’m hoping we have already a list, but, the last two defensive signings shows me at least the limitations of any list that would have had Comparre and Hendrybat the top of it. Hendry may or may not fit the bill, but not now. I have my doubts he ever will reach the level we need if we are to move to the next level.

He can’t get a game now and we have players we know have Achilles heels, that doesn’t fill me with hope. He’s another project. Compare baffled me. It still does.

We had a game against Zenit after the new year and all knew defensively we needed vast improvement. These two were not that. Those kind of buys again in the summer will see us again entering a CL qualifiers with a weak and vulnerable defence.

Boyata is a perplexing and at times infuriating player. When he is good he is very good. His concentration and risk taking has us all reaching for the valium. He has had no competition, even after bringing in two CB’s. That isn’t good enough in recruitment terms.

I hope whoever is on the new list is capable right now.

I will read all the rumours though. I’m like a moth to a flame. Just get it done Celtic. If we do, 10 will be the least of the worries for our deluded neighbours. The savings to our NHS in reduced Valium prescriptions alone is a good reason. My sanity for me is up there too. :)



08 Apr 2018 10:32:15
Rodgers again quoting that the Edouard fee being quote by news outlets are wide of the mark, wonder if it's closer to the 3m bracket. If so I'd sign him in a heart beat. Plenty potential in him.




07 Apr 2018 11:54:18
Daniel Wass is a name that came up in conversation with my mate, apparently out of contract in 2019, Rodgers was interested at Liverpool and may be available for a cut price? Just passing on what I heard. Wonder if there's any interest? Anyone care to elaborate.


1.) 07 Apr 2018 12:32:34
Supposed to be looking at the striker on loan at venlo.

2.) 07 Apr 2018 14:48:00
Coincidentally there was a story on HITC about him this morning. Wouldn't believe anything off there.

3.) 07 Apr 2018 16:09:07
The boy from venlo read the story in the papers.

4.) 07 Apr 2018 17:05:36
Daniel Wass is a good player, experienced Danish international who started off as a right back now starring for Celta Vigo as an attacking midfield player, would be a decent option price depending .

5.) 07 Apr 2018 17:11:50
26 with about 40 senior career goals. Could be legit considering our track record.

6.) 07 Apr 2018 23:35:30
I wouldn't mind Swedish Isaac Kiese Thelin currently on loan at Beveren in Belgium. Currently having a good season and looks tidy.



06 Apr 2018 09:25:02
Looks like a lot of contractual work for our own players is working behind the scenes right now. Griffiths in talks, Rogic, Ajer, Armtstrong? This seems to be a good idea as it gets this all done prior to the transfer window opening. Hopefully we can tie down our best players early, this clearly excludes boyata. I'm hoping for a few fringe players to move on this summer and bring in quality to improve the squad.


1.) 06 Apr 2018 09:43:51
Getting Griffiths, Rogic, Armstrong and Ajer on long term deals would be as important as new signings. I don't want to see any of that 4 leave unless they say they want to leave and that has not happened yet. We have to build a new defence around Ajer, KT, and hopefully Ralston.

2.) 06 Apr 2018 11:09:53
Well said Stan, I always seem to agree with your reasoning! I think Hendry is going to grow into a great player and could potentially be a partner for AJER once he gains more expeirienced within the club and understand the play and Celtic as a whole. Ralston looks good and the thing I like about him is his attacking presence, has the same attitude as Tierney.

3.) 06 Apr 2018 11:34:36
Not many did yesterday after our disasterous season ending CP is falling apart 1-1 draw 😉

Hendry still finding his feet so i'm not going to judge him by Wednesdays performance, He could have won us the game at the end and only the week before he was excellent for Scotland so he will progress well with games and coaching. To have a back 4 of Ralston Hendry Ajer Tierney would be quite something. I rate Ralston highly he will come back raring to go for pre season his time at the Arabs will do him good.

4.) 06 Apr 2018 12:28:56
Sorry lads am not convinced by Ralston I may be unfairly comparing him to KT but am just not sure he's the great hope we all hope - I do hope am wrong.

5.) 06 Apr 2018 12:54:00
I don't know what he has done wrong when playing NJS. He wasn't made a fool of by the worlds most expensive player this season. The lad has had to deal with a couple of injuries along with not getting a decent run in the team so its hard for him to build up a bit of momentum. Hopefully next season will be a good chance for him to show what he can do when he is fully fit after a good preseason and spell at Tannadice. I think too many people are compairing him with KT which is a bit unfair he should be compared to Lustig and Gamboa.

6.) 06 Apr 2018 16:17:25
Lustig is still well ahead of Ralston in all aspects apart from age imo, he’s had a couple of poor games but in big games over the years he rarely let's us down .

7.) 06 Apr 2018 16:39:10
Great player and an amazing servant to the club but we need to be looking long term now, injuries look to have taken there toll on him. No reason why Lustig can't be back up and used sparingly next season at RB and CB if needed. I think he deserves that. He needs a break but isn't going to get it with the World Cup so how is he going to come back having pretty much been playing continuous for 2 seasons.

8.) 07 Apr 2018 00:11:46
KenLikeEh- the part of your post that stood out was getting theses guys signed up before the transfer window opens. It's a deal breaker for me. If they haven't then it's time to seriously look at replacements. The board have to weigh up what the contract cost v a few hit and hope signings will be. Being in the last year we won't get the money we are after. Upping the wages to tie them down will be less than a few punts on mabey players. Thing is the two of them know that and won't sign half arse contracts. Nor should they.

9.) 07 Apr 2018 01:51:02
For me lustig still has a valuable place in our team. He is still a good defender but he can't play that overlapping role that seems to be the only merit in some people's eyes. It's been a missing link in our team having a pacey rwb to back him up and support or a rm that can track back and cover well. I didn't think the mcclean shout was a bad idea at all for that reason. Kt at times does the job of 2 men on the park it's difficult to see the wood from the trees when you have a player that does so many things well playing on the other side.
To be fair BR signed gamboa for the right reasons. didn't work out.
If we manage to tie up the good ones in the squad. The board have a "cheap" option of a rm, cb and a striker.

10.) 11 Apr 2018 01:13:31
Sorry but hendry alongside ajer is not the answer.

23 May 2018 18:34:01
I wonder if Celtic have been watching Harry Cochrane? 17 years old, starting for hearts, making a name for himself, obviously got a lot of potential. One of the better young players in the league.


{Ed007's Note - Cochrane's from Larkhall and proper staunch - there's no way he would sign for us and his family would never allow it.}

1.) 23 May 2018 19:43:19
Summed up my speculation in a Oner ED!

{Ed007's Note - :-D

2.) 23 May 2018 19:57:40
I think if we continue to bring through and develop guys like KT, Callum McGregor, Calvin Miller, Aitchieson and young Johnston, added to the other young potential we have acquired, we will be just fine.
I know it was a testimonial, but I thought Miller and Johnston were very impressive, with the winger even showing shades of Paddy Roberts.

3.) 23 May 2018 23:19:53
Hes definitely got lots of potential but he’d never realise it if we signed him because he wouldn’t get anywhere near our team.

4.) 24 May 2018 13:04:03
Better aff watching Eddie Cochrane.

5.) 25 May 2018 11:39:33
they all want to join us but lol.



17 May 2018 17:54:18
Rogic signed a Five year deal, this is not a drill.


1.) 17 May 2018 20:00:01
It actually is a drill KLE! A drill right into the heart of the sevconites that they have to be at the hands of the wizard's left foot for another 5 years!

2.) 19 May 2018 15:21:28
Are you sure ha ha ha. Don't want you getting cold feet again.



01 May 2018 09:45:20
ED, how many of our recent signings have been the result of lee congerton? I'm unsure of how all this works! I'm surprised we haven't dipped into the German market more (Compper not included) .


{Ed007's Note - Congerton is part of the process with every signing we make but the final decision comes down to Rodgers and Lawwell.}

1.) 01 May 2018 11:06:41
Thanks ED, have u heard anything further on the rumour front?

{Ed007's Note - Nah not much, but this loan deal for Rhian Brewster doesn't sound too reliable considering he is out of contract this summer and can sign for training compensation only.}

2.) 01 May 2018 11:25:49
Does anyone know what’s happening with Compper, he seems to have disappeared.

{Ed007's Note - I've heard a return to Germany could be on the cards this summer.}

3.) 01 May 2018 11:40:58
Worth a punt if it comes down to compensation, look how the last one we got turned out.

4.) 01 May 2018 11:53:09
Do you know what happened ed007, was there a falling out, or is he just not good enough?

{Ed007's Note - He just doesn't seem to be impressing anyone in training etc and now he's injured yet again.}

5.) 01 May 2018 12:20:36
He looked no better than what we already have. End of.
We need a better quality of defender, hopefully a decade younger too would be a start. Neither him nor Hendry fir me at least are anywhere near the level. Hendry has a chance, small one for me, but Comparre? Never.

6.) 01 May 2018 13:29:01
MagicPole, I think you’re being a bit harsh on Hendry, he’s got the attributes to be a very good player, his inexperience is the problem here and I think Rodgers will bring out the best in him within a season or 2.

7.) 01 May 2018 15:27:15
He's young and inexperience shows but I think that's why B. R bought him. He's a coach man manager works with players to get best out of them. I just think he's going be a great player.

8.) 01 May 2018 16:03:42
I hope you’re right. He looks nowhere near the post code of great to me. Time will tell. There are too many signings we need to wait for them to turn from projects into players. We need players now, in time for the CL qualifiers and hopefully group. We also need them for domestic games as we are weak in defence. I will bet you a pint Hendry is not in defence when we embark upon that qualifying campaign. In fact, I will raise that to a pint and a double malt.

Again, gecdelughted to lose that if he steps up. If he doesn’t he’s a risk, and we have enough of them already.

9.) 01 May 2018 15:12:48
Ed if Brewster is out of contract then he either ain’t that good or Liverpool have no say on where he goes? So is this a non story? Also any news on Dembele injury?

{Ed007's Note - Why does his contract running out mean Brewster isn't any good? Liverpool have been trying to sign him to a professional contract for ages and there's teams all over Europe keeping an eye on the situation including Borussia Dortmund and Man City.
If Dembele just missed Sunda's game he should be fine for this weekend.}

10.) 01 May 2018 17:42:21
I think we will be seeing a centre back and a right back coming in, someone with more expeiroemce to partner Ajer.

11.) 01 May 2018 18:54:19
A must. No ifs or buts, this has to happen. I think rather than just players who play there, they need to be of a quality that they go straight in. No projects please Brendan.

12.) 01 May 2018 19:50:47
Rb cb cm cf and an attacking midfielder
And probably bain
Gamboa comper sviatchenko simunovic armstrong lg dembele
I can see both dembele and lg moving on this summer if the right bid comes in for dembele.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see LG leaving when he's in talks to extend his deal and talking like this:

"I've got another three years left on my contract as it is, but why would you want to go anywhere else? I'm playing at a top club with a top manager, in front of up to 60,000 in every home game.
There's no reason to go anywhere else. We've got Champions League football every season. It's harder for us to get to the group stage now but when we do, those are memorable nights.
Hopefully, if we can come to an agreement, I'll not be far off the time Broony has been here."

13.) 01 May 2018 20:25:40
Fingers crossed he stays just got a feeling
Not sure if they will make a move for mcginn this summer going into the final year of his contract i think they might let than run its courze and look in jan
Boy from liverpool fits the bill
Same as dembele situation
Can see dembele moved on edourd signed up and this boy from liverpool signed vg business.

14.) 01 May 2018 22:09:55
There is no pleasing some people Boyata was superb on Sunday, it was obvious that B R had got through to him and built his confidence up . The fact that Rangers2012 were the opponents mean't that fans were all involved in game and the abusive shouts were drowned out by crowd . Now all we need are Celtic supporters to encourage Boyata to play like Sunday every day . It's easier and more certain to get a good centre half out of Boyata than a young one we buy.
Dembele wants to stay, yet our fans continue to talk up his departure Why? Why do we want Dembele out.



15 Apr 2018 16:47:08
2 wins away from the double treble, what a feeling being a Celtic fan right now! Hopefully we can hold on and make history COYBIG!


1.) 15 Apr 2018 17:35:25
Ken, it's an unbelievable feeling pal. This would only come second to that glorious day back in May 67. Brendan and the players deserve the utmost credit for what they have achieved in so short a time. Scott Brown, arise my man, you have become an immense ambassador and captain our our wonderful club, God bless you. Exciting month ahead bhoys and ghirls, time for a Glendronach!



08 Apr 2018 19:45:16
Doesn't matter what striker stars next week! Surely it doesn't matter who plays we should still beat them with no issue. My one concern is Boyata. I have no trust in him what so ever.

Bain/ Gordon
Hendry, Ajer, Simunovic, Tierney
Ntcham, Brown
Roberts, Rogic, McGregor


1.) 08 Apr 2018 19:51:57
That's my back 4 also K.

2.) 08 Apr 2018 20:01:57
That would be my team Kenlike, Armstrong for Rogic after an hour and Jamesie for Paddy at some point, tempted to start Griff but got a feeling the Moose will do the business. Wouldn't have Boyota on the bus to the stadium.

3.) 08 Apr 2018 20:08:04

4.) 08 Apr 2018 21:20:43
I think Hendry us cuptied.

5.) 08 Apr 2018 23:48:58
Ken, Boyata has been our best defender in our last 3 games and more . Your dislike for him is such you would pick Jozo, who has had a so so season ahead of Boyata and Jozo has played very little.

Hayes is a good cover player he can play anywhere down the left and will put in a shift domestically. Hard worker which Rodgers clearly likes. Pity he had an injury or I’d imagine we would have seen more of him.
