Being reported that the gaffer is getting 6 million to spend in the window.


1.) 02 Jan 2017 18:21:03
Is that the Van Dijk money if he goes to Chelski? I believe that McCarthy was our number one target, 6m might be enough, but Gueye is off to the AFCON and Everton may be reluctant right now. Injury concerns over him too.

2.) 02 Jan 2017 19:37:18
spend the whole £6m and buy Patrick Roberts on a perm deal, then in the summer buy Mcarthy.


3.) 02 Jan 2017 20:04:16
Think it will be for more than just one player to be honest.

4.) 02 Jan 2017 22:15:14
Don't think we need too many to b fair, another quality midfielder in the mould a rogic n Roberts ad b over the moon.

5.) 03 Jan 2017 02:28:12
We are not going to buy Roberts for 6 mil, Man City paid around 12 mil don't think they are going to loan him out for progress then let him go for half the price, let's get real guys, we won't get him on a perm deal.

6.) 03 Jan 2017 08:44:45
Majority of that is add ons mate. I'm sure I remember Ed saying the fee was around or even under 6 million, the adds on depend on performance. Also keep in mind he was bought by a different manager so would not be that strange for him to be let go. however the real issue is when other English clubs hear he is available there will be many out there willing to offer more than we can afford.

{Ed001's Note - I am pretty sure they paid nearly £13m for him but you are right that Pep is not keen on him and the recruitment policy at City in general is something he wants changed. There was a bit of a set-to after they played Liverpool between himself and Txiki Bergiristan over that. If Celtic want to take him on a permanent, they will find Citeh are very receptive to an offer right now.}

Is it true that scott Allan is training with the youth team at Rotherham?


1.) 03 Nov 2016 17:13:55
Scott who. who cares he's not ever going to be in br plans.

2.) 04 Nov 2016 13:34:50
A mistake from the past . Never prepared to add a little work rate to his range of passing.



28 Oct 2016 15:41:40
Tierney hurt in training anyone else heard this.


1.) 28 Oct 2016 18:57:18
Hearing he has broken his leg : (

2.) 28 Oct 2016 18:59:40
Just heard it rom my mate. Out for the season with ankle injury.

3.) 28 Oct 2016 19:02:04
BROKEN ankle / leg.



31 Aug 2016 11:00:29
Simunovic failed his medical?


1.) 31 Aug 2016 11:16:44
the daily ranger couldn't wait to get that report out. HH.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 11:23:15
Sly sports news still reporting he is in Torino for medical? No mention of failed.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 11:25:59
did we honestly expect anything else. he has only returned from a serious injury and has hardly trained.

4.) 31 Aug 2016 11:39:26
Hope this is false. More so for the Jozo this would be demoralising for him.

5.) 31 Aug 2016 11:50:48
Apparently he has extra fluid in his knee but Torino are still interested in a deal.

6.) 31 Aug 2016 12:11:44
Bbc are reporting that failed medical rumours are rubbish and he's still to have his mefical.



21 Aug 2016 11:50:48
I would be massively surprised if balotelli rocked up at park head.
I would go as far as saying no chance.
Everyone the manager has brought in so far he has had a good working relationship with.
Balotelli and him don't.


1.) 21 Aug 2016 17:05:39
Kev, Balotelli seems to be just another Islam Feruz or Nile Ranger kind of player. Bags of skill and talent but an attitude that would destroy the best dressing room in the country.

See young oconnell out on loan.
When does his contract end ed007?


{Ed007's Note - This summer........

1.) 12 Jan 2017 12:44:36
Hope we tie O'Connell down long term as he looks the part👍

2.) 12 Jan 2017 13:41:06

Going out on loan with 6 months left and not having played a first team game for 3 months? It looks like his time is up.

3.) 12 Jan 2017 13:41:18
Always impressed me O'Connell. Just a shame there's a few ahead of him.

4.) 12 Jan 2017 14:42:03
JimTim. O'Connell has always impressed me also. always looks comfortable in his position. NiallH. you could be right. maybe Brendan wants to see him playing a decent run of games before he decides whether to offer him a new deal.

5.) 12 Jan 2017 15:50:11
Would say his time is probably up then.

6.) 12 Jan 2017 16:11:21
I think he should have been out on loan earlier in the season to show what he can do because at present he is competing with Eric, Jojo, Toure, Boyata, Ambrose and even Lustig for a central defender slot where we have more quantity than quality and he is by no means worst.

7.) 12 Jan 2017 16:40:43
PT with him playing in the CL qualifiers as well as pre-season I think he might have been part of the plans until Jozo ended up staying. Did that deal not collapse right at the end of the window? It'll be desperately unfortunate if that is the last we'll see of him.

8.) 12 Jan 2017 18:15:42
I'd imagine he will be offered a new deal if he cuts it down in England, surely he'd have signed on a pre contract (if that is available) . I reckon Brendan will keep a close eye on him

9.) 12 Jan 2017 18:17:09
I agree with that Jim as he was certainly ahead of Boyata and Ambrose in the managers eyes at that time.

10.) 12 Jan 2017 18:18:21
Really strange how we can't seem to produce our own central defenders anymore which Scotland was generally renowned for ie. McNeil, Miller, McLeish, Gough etc. I watched the young Hoops and had had high hopes for the other Cork lad as well as O''Connell. Cannae remember his name but started wae a K. Kelliger maybe? 🍀

11.) 12 Jan 2017 18:27:50
Hegarty, Narey-the list go's on so why not now me doth ponder? 🍀

12.) 13 Jan 2017 09:29:24
Kelleher bud. Looks decent from the little I've seen too.

13.) 13 Jan 2017 12:23:05
hes on loan at peterhead. i watched one of their games on alba and he didn't look anything special.



10 Jan 2017 12:28:28
Old firm eye Falkirk ace.
When the press going to get they rangers ain't competing with us for any signings?


1.) 10 Jan 2017 12:46:22
Celtic should come out, once and for all both dismiss and distance themselves from this obsolete and outdated term.
The only people who use 'old firm' are sevconians who hang onto our coat tails craving attention and publicity far and above what their new club merit.

2.) 10 Jan 2017 22:04:54
Thumbs up v thumbs down. 7-1 perfect. Just freeze it there ed

3.) 10 Jan 2017 23:42:31
Well said kev 👏
Released youth who is enjoying his football and playing well for his club. No more in it.
Same source original drafted piece included.
"BR allegedly has burrowed through his full x3 artist value sketch pads from b&M (monthly allowance) working and reworking formation ideas, tactics and finances to blood the new lad in for next year. A long term replacement for toure has been quoted around the brass of cp as br would like to mould the young midfielder into a left footed comanding cb.
After shaking the (remainder of the ) barton contract and the kings cellar of ginger bottles valuation met the asking price has been negotiated over instalments and the mighty teddy's have done a heavy hitting scott Allan revenge blow on thier age old rivals. "



03 Jan 2017 10:23:50
The first thing I would do in the transfer window is tell commons Allan and Bailey they can leave for free if they go find new clubs.


1.) 03 Jan 2017 11:15:35
Add Ambrose and Ciftci too. TBH I think from what BR has said those who haven't featured have already veen told that.

2.) 03 Jan 2017 11:43:46
Think we could get a few hundred thousand for Boyata?

3.) 03 Jan 2017 11:51:09
Would the club let ciftci leave for free after paying that much for him?

4.) 03 Jan 2017 13:51:42
I wrongly thought Ciftci was contracted until 2018, in which case I would have said aye. I'd imagine his agent has been working on something before now anyway. If we could off load him without paying up his entire contract I'd do it. Can't see us getting close to what we paid.



17 Dec 2016 18:51:41
When was the last time we had this many goals scores spread through the team?


1.) 17 Dec 2016 19:36:33
Good point kev it's been a long time.

Makes picking 1st goal scorer at the bookies a pain tho lol.



10 Dec 2016 17:16:27
Right guys what do you all class as playing football the CELTIC ways as?
Had someone say to me that we shouldn't be playing the system we are because it's not the celtic way.
To me playing free flowing attacking football and winning things is the celtic way
Formation doesn't matter to me as long as they work.


1.) 10 Dec 2016 18:11:11
For me its about winning whilst being entertained consistently throughout a season.

For someone who started following Celtic during the dark years of the early nineties, I can say happily that this team, along with O'Neill and Tommy burns, have given the most consistent "Celtic way" of playing.

Just my thoughts 🙂.

2.) 10 Dec 2016 17:57:04
*because system isn't 2 upfront.

3.) 10 Dec 2016 18:57:44
If the balls getting put about fast and we're scoring goals while also keeping it right at the back, I'm happy. That Blackburn UEFAgame where Hartson, Sutton and Henke bossed it is pretty much the Celtic way for me but if we can have have the ball fizzing about with one up front I'll still be chuffed.

4.) 10 Dec 2016 19:13:57
Never understood the term myself tbh so i'm interested to see responses.

5.) 10 Dec 2016 19:37:16
Always understood it to be entertaining, attacking, free-flowing football, a sprinkle of 'Stars' and goals-a-plenty.
It's what I was fortunate enough have seen in the sixties when I started going to the games and it has been the trademark of all great Celtic sides.

6.) 10 Dec 2016 20:37:41
It is a good question.

I agree with Passing Time, free flowing attacking (but winning) football. I have also taken it as if you score 7 we will score 8 unless you are Barcelona and we are trying to park the bus 😀

I don't think its related to playing any particular formation. I would say that even though Strachan had his team playing winning football and brought a lot of success it wasn't the celtic way for me as i didn't find it very entertaining (yes there were moments) , but overall i wouldn't have said we were playing any form of progressive football like we are trying to do now and did in 67. Under MON i would also say he was not trying to play the celtic way but with the quality of his squad its what we got (sometimes, as sometimes it was a little turgid) . Again i'm not saying it was bad in these eras where we had very good success. but i just prefer the approach at the moment and if we fail after giving it a right good go and trying to take the game to an opponent it makes any defeat a bit easier to take and that is the Celtic way as long as our team has tried its best to impose a fast style of attacking football regardless of the outcome i'm a happy bhoy.

7.) 10 Dec 2016 23:27:06
There is no definitive definition of what the "Celtic Way" is from my understanding.

I dare say that it will mean something different from person to person. To me I would define it as being totally dominant in attack and attacking with flair. The formation is not relevant to me.

8.) 10 Dec 2016 23:32:49
For me it's attacking open football with 2 flair wingers and a number 7 being the most reliable player on the park we haven't had a number 7 for years probably a weird 1 but to me it's iconic.

9.) 12 Dec 2016 09:09:50
I always thought the saying came when big jock developed a 'new' style of play i. e. Attacking full backs, the whole team building attacks etc. This for me (although I'm not old enough for Lisbon) was personified when the lions dismantled the very defensive style of inter (anti football? )

Did the term 'the Celtic way' exist before big jocks tenure?

For me the term will always mean 'winning in the right way', fast free flowing attacking football, quick breaks, swagger on the ball. But most importantly winning with class and sporting integrity.

I always feel (paranoia perhaps) , that we have to beat that 'extra man' in black (and the sfa) when we step on the pitch, therefore we need to dominate teams and be clear cut winners. I'm not saying we don't get our share of decisions but I never feel confident in the big cup ties regarding referee impartiality.

I want entertainment when I wat h the team and this season is the first in a long time I genuinely get excited before the game.
Speaking of entertainment- lubo or di canio for sheer spark?

Bhoy has looked the part everytime I have seen him and by all accounts he is a very mature young man with a good head on his shoulders.
I am genuinely excited to see how he does.
