Ed007 just heard that Christie will not be leaving on a permanent but will be going back to the dons on loan.
You heard anything similar?


{Ed007's Note - The talk was that Christie would go back to them on loan before all this Jonny Hayes stuff started but with Sunderland looking at McInnes - Walter Smith is advising them - Christie isn't keen to commit until he knows who the Dons boss will be.}

1.) 03 Jun 2017 14:12:14
Typical of Smith . If he can't help his own shower of Sh£te he'll try and disrupt their challengers.

{Ed007's Note - That's exactly my thoughts too mate, wtf can a dinosaur like Smith offer as advice. As soon as I heard he was involved I knew that he would recommend McInnes, who else is he going to put forward, The Slug?}

2.) 03 Jun 2017 14:12:56
Walter Smith advising them Ed? Why because Martin Bain is at Sunderland if so that's another joke? fur fox sake they must be some knitting needles to make a cardigan to cover here to the north of England!

{Ed007's Note - I'd imagine there's an earner in it for Smith as a consultancy fee from his old partner in EBT tax crimes Bain.}

3.) 03 Jun 2017 14:42:47
I never took the Hayes transfer serious Ed I took it as paper talk but it seems to be happening is that the case mate?

Also Borini, now gathering momentum too is he next? (Y)

{Ed007's Note - I'm still not believing the Hayes story. There was all sorts of rumours yesterday about him having talks with Lawwell and/or Rodgers, he was seen at CP and Lennoxtown etc etc even though he's back over in Ireland.
Borini isn't going to happen, it's just made up.}

4.) 03 Jun 2017 14:52:59
I read borini had a fall out with the gaffer and slagged him in the press.

{Ed007's Note - Borini refused to leave for Sunderland in a permanent switch after his initial loan deal and Rodgers forced him to to train on his own away from the first team.

"I’m a proud person, but after a while I understood there was no future there and knew I just needed to accept it. Training alone was the hardest thing but they were pushing me away, forcing me to make the decision to go.
"Maybe I didn’t get as many opportunities as I deserved but the world doesn’t end when you leave Liverpool and now I’m very happy here. I’ve had too many clubs, too many changes, so I want to stay at Sunderland, to have some stability.
On Rodgers he said: "We don’t speak anymore. It’s sad. It ended badly between me and him, it’s not what I wanted."

5.) 03 Jun 2017 14:54:36
That is amazing that Sunderland are taking advice from Smith Have they no ambition?

6.) 03 Jun 2017 15:12:48
Ed has there been any news about the young Chelsea lad that was supposedly shown around Celtic Park, Will we be more eager to get a deal done now that his team mate Solanke chose Liverpool or is it a case of waiting for a definate answer regarding Roberts before making a move. I can't recall his name but pretty sure he was a right winger that can also play as a striker.

{Ed007's Note - Charly Musonda? Chelsea are offering him to Monaco as part of a deal for Tiemoue Bakayoko.}

7.) 03 Jun 2017 15:33:06
That's the one cheers Ed, zero chance of that happening then.

{Ed007's Note - Doesn't look like it, we never did find out if the tour actually happened though did we? It was just rumoured to be him.}

8.) 03 Jun 2017 16:17:00
Aye if we were to believe in every rumour we heard we would have a squad big enough to compete at the Olympics.

{Ed007's Note - :-D



25 May 2017 11:56:44
Parade before the charity game has been cancelled.


1.) 25 May 2017 14:19:23
I don't think we should be stopping parades or gatherings myself. i think in some ways that's giving success to the idiots by making us change our plans. It also doesn't make a great deal of sense when your still allowing 50k and 60k fans still gather in the streets around Hampden and parkhead anyway. I doubt it will happen but I hope these decisions are reversed.

{Ed007's Note - Spot on, Jim. There's a sell out Hampden on Saturday and sell out Celtic Park on Sunday plus the show at the Hydro tonight yet they're cancelling a bus parade. Why haven't these events also been cancelled?

2.) 25 May 2017 14:34:29
Happy to be contradicted here Ed, but I think it is the celebration aspect angle of things that is being binned?

Cant see Man Utd taking that route either for obvious reasons will Arsenal or Chelsea?

{Ed007's Note - The players won't be parading the Scottish Cup - if we win it - at CP after the game and the bus parade before the Legends match has been cancelled, why? It's a total nonsense and I can't understand why the Club has taken this decision. Why not just cancel the games if security is so important?}

3.) 25 May 2017 14:47:49
Living in manchester and working literally 7 mins away from mondays events I can understand the current panic. It was chaotic here tuesday and very quite in town centre since. I suppose the matches in stadium can be vetted much better than people just congregating on the streets. Does stink abit when you consider the achivement the club has managed and potential treble also. Makes you think are people just using this as an excuse to spoil the party.

{Ed007's Note - That's horrible mate, all our thoughts and prayers are with your wonderful city at this time, God bless you buddy. My dad spent a couple of years living in Manchester when his family left Cork and I still have family down there who were thankfully all safe.
Yes it's easier to control things in the stadium but remember the scumbag in Manchester wasn't at the concert, he was hanging around the foyer so imagine the crowds teeming out of Hampden and Celtic Park or the Hydro this weekend, how's it different controlling them than a much smaller crowd at Celtic Park to see the players present the cup?
I seen someone on Twitter say that our bus parade would stretch the police - obviously not as much as the Orange walks that are on this weekend across Scotland though.
Cancelling these things is just letting the bastards win, they've got us living in fear of going about our daily business and things are just going to get worse if we don't get the Tory warmongers out, they've consistently proven that they can't keep us safe in our daily lives all the while cutting police and defence budgets further and selling arms to people known to supply Middle East nutters under our noses.}

4.) 25 May 2017 14:48:57
I don't honestly know Ed, On some aspects it's "not to put a further drain on resources" others it's to "dumb down" the celebrations like out of respect that appears to be the two takes on it

When you tackle the first one what is in place for the FA Cup final? Surely, they must follow suit?

{Ed007's Note - Are the OO walks not draining resources though so that doesn't really wash does it? They're talking about deploying the army at Wembley. Now I'm not a cowardly murdering scumbag but I'd think Wembley would be a much higher risk target than a bus parade in Glasgow or a few thousand folk at CP.
Man Utd and their fans didn't mind celebrating winning the EL last night but we can't celebrate in Glasgow out of respect? That's a bollocks excuse too. Then there's the thousands of supporters going to a party with Rod Stewart and the Bay City Rollers for a piss up and a sing song - awfy respectful that is!
I wonder if they would have been cancelled if they were paid ticket events?}

5.) 25 May 2017 15:52:19
I've sent an email to Celtic at my disappointment at these cancellations as I genuinely believe we shouldn't fear what might happen. If there is a genuine concern then cancel all events but then where do you stop fear? stop going to the movies high Street pub shopping centre etc.

{Ed007's Note - (clap)

6.) 25 May 2017 16:31:49
Is it cancelled for fear of what might happen or is it a mark of respect? HH.

7.) 25 May 2017 17:12:04
That's my point Bob, Aberdeen have indicated they will not parade in that angle and is Aberdeen a target?

I fully accept that in the grand scheme/ scale London is a more of a target so what is happening there?

Is it a "scaleback" or other aspect? (y)

8.) 25 May 2017 17:26:06
Don't worry bhoys when we win the treble I'll be parading down the m6 singing the Celtic song.

9.) 25 May 2017 16:29:42
Thanks for the kind words mate. I just took a walk to albert square on my lunch/ dinner break and it just hits home even more so. The thing for me is the threat its obviously high atm but in manchester we are still going ahead with the great manchester run this weekend. If they really wanted to do the parades for us in glasgow they could. Just seems they are using this as an excuse. Bloody hope we win this treble on sats.

{Ed007's Note - It must be tough down there but well done on keeping the run happening, that's the right attitude imo.}

10.) 25 May 2017 19:42:43
" no one is making any money out of it ". that's right a lot of the poor unemployed or part time workers on minimum wage would have been going, you know the one's that can't afford forty quid a ticket for the final or 500 for a season ticket but these people have no voice in society now 😞 because the torys have successfully demonised them, so no one is going to complain on there behalf , a problem that is affecting wider society also 😒.



16 Feb 2017 14:31:51
Looks like ambrose on the way back.


1.) 16 Feb 2017 15:55:55
What do we need to do to get rid of him 😂.

{Ed007's Note - His work permit application will now need to be appealed after it being rejected. My own theory is because if it had passed Efe would have been able to play Man Utd in the FA Cup and Jose was a bit worried - think along the Jorge Cadete fiasco :-D

2.) 16 Feb 2017 16:45:48
Ah would have thought with big Efe in the starting line up that would have been man utd playing with 12 men.

3.) 16 Feb 2017 20:31:13
If we didn't need our subs and appearance was the issue I'd give the guy a run out on the 89th for the next few games (as long as he went up front) . The establishment have gone trully mad if he doesn't meet the criteria?

4.) 16 Feb 2017 20:26:30
Is he not due for residency come the summer? Sounds mad to me that a work permit is being dragged up after his his lenght of time here, appearances domestic/ international combined and the tax he has chipped in. Weird world. Who is pulling the strings on this?

{Ed007's Note - The problem is that Ambrose hasn't played enough internationals in the last two seasons to meet the FA criteria but they're all great points you've made.}

5.) 17 Feb 2017 20:00:51
Feel sorry for him, he will be wanting to get his career back on track with a fresh start.

6.) 17 Feb 2017 23:18:48
Never forget being at paradise when we beat Barcelona 2-1. Efe was a rock. Hope he gets a wee run in the team once the leagues wrapped up before he leaves at end of the season. Guy deserves a good sent off.



30 Jan 2017 11:34:36
Efe to hibs?


1.) 30 Jan 2017 12:20:28
Does he need a lift?

2.) 30 Jan 2017 13:36:39
Looks we are losing nearly a full team over the next 24 hours of the papers are right.

Gordon to Chelsea
Izzy to Leeds
Efe to Hibs
Simunovic to Crystal Palace or Sunderland
Dembele to half the EPL
Commons to Hibs
Sviachenko to Leicester
Tierney to Sunderland

3.) 30 Jan 2017 15:44:28
Wishful thinking from the scottish papers Niall Efe and commons and that'll be it but of course it will be an exclusive

4.) 30 Jan 2017 16:58:35

That was the point of the post. We are trying to build a squad, not sell one.

With Commons and Efe probably after some kind of pay-off to go 6 months early it will probably be just as expensive to keep them.

Izzy will also be required for cover.

No danger we will sell the others.



02 Jan 2017 17:57:57
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.}

Do people really think because the press can't tell us who Celtic are looking to sign means the board are not working on signings?


1.) 21 Jun 2017 22:48:12
Not one bit Kev . In fact I am more annoyed when I read that Celtic are interested in such and such a player. More than likely nonsense.

2.) 23 Jun 2017 11:25:02
History of the board does not fare well mate simple. I am heart to be convinced. Tell
You what i may be proven wrong, but a don't think we will break our transfer record, lawell has his story ready, we can't compete with the rest of Europe or epl. see it right now easy way out. Yes I do think they will buy one or two squad players, but only once they sell a few.

3.) 23 Jun 2017 11:32:02
If memory serves me correctly, all of last years signings were very hush hush until they were in the bag.

Have to be confident Brendans being backed by the board but I don't think we'll see anyone else in before the last qualifiers at the earliest. Although could be wrong.

But reastically we aren't exactly a team in tatters. Main squad seems to be getting kept, any coming in need to be first team ready and be an improvement on who's in an already more than decent, invincible, treble winning side.



14 Jun 2017 16:09:15
Scott Allan to Dundee on loan.




13 Jun 2017 16:43:23
Just read something about how all 3 of our kits are green next season. What happens when we play away to a team that also wears green?


1.) 13 Jun 2017 17:29:19
Shirts v Skins.

2.) 13 Jun 2017 17:53:01
Probably have to wear bibs.

3.) 13 Jun 2017 18:05:47
Taps aff!

4.) 13 Jun 2017 20:25:48
Someone can correct me if I am wrong but early 2000s Hibs had a green home strip and white away so we had to play in an away shirt either at home or a cup final because our home strip clashed with both.

5.) 13 Jun 2017 20:52:40
My post above was annoying me.

9th September 2000 and 25 February 2001 we wore the yellow strip while they played in green at Celtic park.

About the time I used to go regularly so rung a bell with me.

6.) 13 Jun 2017 20:56:44
All the shorts and socks are different colour and are all different shades of green it will be fine.

7.) 13 Jun 2017 19:17:13
when i was a bhoy celtic played hibs and celtic wore the hoops and hibs played in their normal green and white jerseys.

8.) 13 Jun 2017 20:41:07
Both wear away kits usually in cases like these. Its probs deliberate by marketing to make sure they wear the 3rd kit more than once, as per the pink kit.

9.) 14 Jun 2017 00:03:13
i was showing my age there, we didn't even have a badge on our jerseys back then lol, it was only the early 70s before some of you get cheeky lol.



10 Jun 2017 17:49:02
Best Scottish left back for years.
One of best in Britain
never plays left back for his country.


1.) 10 Jun 2017 23:00:18
Wise up about Gordon, despite some of your lot spending the season waiting to fault him for losing a game domestically, the fact is he didn't . We have had people weeping in their pants for most of the season that our centre defenders were accidents waiting to happen . If the slabbering naysayers are right how did we go through season unbeaten? I will tell you everyone did a good job, nobody was handing out mistakes like fliers .
Put on a clean pair of panties for you must have been wetting your panties all day .



08 Jun 2017 21:22:26
What was everyone's favourite goal this season?
Must say I loved wee mcgregor finish against the mob.
Calm and classy.


1.) 08 Jun 2017 21:33:34
Team goal v St Johnstone for me!

2.) 08 Jun 2017 21:39:00
Plenty of good ones to pick from. Loved Griffiths against aberdeen at start of season. Touch by a defender and smashed post and in.

3.) 08 Jun 2017 23:16:34
Dembele at Ibrox. We started poorly and that got us back on track.

4.) 08 Jun 2017 23:47:31
Armstrong vs Hamilton was a cracker!

5.) 08 Jun 2017 23:50:57
any one against the currants.

6.) 08 Jun 2017 23:52:26
Moussa at ibrox.

7.) 08 Jun 2017 23:54:25
I agree with kevbhoy👍.

8.) 08 Jun 2017 23:56:46
Dembelles flick through gilks is leg the cis cup final.

9.) 09 Jun 2017 01:27:31
Armstrong equaliser after a min in the SCF. So important to hit back quick. Great goal too.

10.) 09 Jun 2017 08:38:40
Plenty choice but I'd also say the team goal v St. Johnstone.

11.) 09 Jun 2017 12:38:07
My favourite Celtic goal this season was Simunovic's tackle on Miller at Ibrokes lol HH.

12.) 09 Jun 2017 19:16:53
Dembeles turn and curler was a beauty, rogic volley up at pittodrie also was a cracker and lustig against rangers was quality.

13.) 09 Jun 2017 19:42:34
Rogics for the treble.

I very much doubt it will be over there on the 11th or the 12th.
Too many people will be travelling and tell Police will be stretched thin as it is.
Add to that that most of the hotels bnbs ferries and flights will be booked up well in advance for the knuckle scrappers to go marching.
