Supposedly we're "battling" Newcastle for Uruguay playmaker Giorgian De Arrascaeta who is valued at £18M. If that's his price then it's completely made up or he's not coming to us 👍🏻.


1.) 16 Jul 2018 17:20:59
I just read they paid 3.6 for him and are looking for over 5.

2.) 16 Jul 2018 17:30:24
Celts Are Here are saying they're wanting upwards of £5m for him.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see that, Monaco were ready to pay about 25 million Euros for him and he's not long signed a new contract with Cruzeiro as well with the aim of maximising his transfer fee.}

3.) 16 Jul 2018 19:41:08
Never going to happen. The wait for strengthening the side continues.

4.) 16 Jul 2018 19:54:04
We should be looking for defenders in South America, Argentinians or Uruguayans, cb’s and fb’s .

5.) 16 Jul 2018 20:37:40
It's alright saying that drewzy but remember it's harder for a work permit here than other countries.

{Ed007's Note - But it's easier in Scotland than it is in England.}

6.) 16 Jul 2018 21:46:08
He has an Italian passport according to Transfermarkt. wouldn't need a work permit. If the money is closer to £9 million we may be an interesting proposition for him. Im sure Suarez would rave about working with Rodgers.

7.) 16 Jul 2018 23:18:07
Not for long ed.

8.) 16 Jul 2018 23:55:28
I can't see it personally. Not with the squad atm. Maybe with the forthcoming chat we may look to offload Allen and Christie? And with possibly Mikey Johnston off on loan we will need someone capable of playing behind the striker in any position and signing McGinn too.

9.) 17 Jul 2018 08:02:24
I hope not, have you seen his videos does not look like a player of top quality. Even look where he places a shot, ever one is hit and hope. Compare it to Morgan's last season video night and day.

10.) 17 Jul 2018 11:36:44
With Liam Hendersons club folding I can see him going back to Hibs for noting which might make the McGinn transfer a bit easier.



02 Jul 2018 12:47:34
Jonathan Bamba has signed for Lille. He was suggested as a target for us a couple of weeks back.


1.) 02 Jul 2018 15:22:37
Getting slightly concerned that we are now no longer getting linked with players. Trimming the fat from the squad is all well and good but we need to getting players in and bedded into the team for the CL qualifiers. 1st round should be simple enough but we could be out after the 2nd round if we are not careful.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 16:04:49
Did anybody actually believe hr was a target?

Step away from the glue.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 16:07:04
For all the years I've been following Celtic. I can't recall them ever going out and spending serious cash from a position of strength.

4.) 02 Jul 2018 16:20:27
Happy what do you call what we just spent on edouard?

5.) 02 Jul 2018 16:32:19
I probably say this each window but I am sure we have players in mind and talks are going on about bringing them in. Personally at present I would like us to bring in 3 new players a CB a playmaker and a right back not so gifted at some on hear to mention names so not going to attempt to say who, But I hope there will be some movement. As to be honest present team good enough for the league but can't see us get far in CL IF we get that far depending on draw with the same players.

6.) 02 Jul 2018 17:17:05
Kev83 Less money we have took in for Armstrong.

Eduardo signing is superb doesn't strengthen last year's squad.

7.) 02 Jul 2018 18:16:47
@MagicPole why is it inconceivable that he would be a target?

8.) 02 Jul 2018 20:21:38
Happy I take it you where not a fan during the MON Days then?

9.) 02 Jul 2018 22:16:49
Only time we broke the biscuit tin mentality during MON. Was when the Zombies were in front.

Martin's first season was the only season we spent heavily.

I said from a position of strength. i've been going home/ away from late 80s. Can't recall anytime we've been in front. Serious money has been spent.

10.) 03 Jul 2018 11:02:55
We didn't pay anything for edouarde, van dijk payed for it, with the armstrong and erik money untouched.

11.) 03 Jul 2018 11:04:10
Bhoys all the rumour pish is coming from SMSM and if your worried then they've got you were they want all Celtic fans. Celtic will do business there's no doubt about it. The fact that we don't do our business like Sevcos supermarket sweep style doesn't mean we're not active in the market. Keep the faith bhoys HWG10IAR.

12.) 03 Jul 2018 11:07:25
Kev, the money he is on coupled with the money to buy him. Money. It’s always about the money.



12 Jun 2018 16:10:51
Ed, it was reported that Compper would be told whether he had a future at Celtic very shortly. Do you know if the club are wanting to just cut their losses and move him on?


{Ed007's Note - I was told a while ago that Compper will be moved this summer.}

1.) 12 Jun 2018 18:07:20
With a new CB cherry picked from whichever squad wins the World Cup?

2.) 12 Jun 2018 21:25:45
He might not get another pre season tour then? 🙄.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 23:55:33
Do you think if he moves on we will replace him Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Definitely mate, we must be looking to strengthen the CB position.}

4.) 12 Jun 2018 23:56:28
Im stilk not sold on Boyata imo. Ajer looks sound enough but it would be good to get a quality CB the help guide them both.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 13:37:15
Is there any news on any possible CB coming in?

6.) 13 Jun 2018 20:00:34
What about the Edouard potential move is there new update on that EDs?

{Ed007's Note - Not that I've heard.}



20 Apr 2018 23:01:21
New top leaked and looks horrible.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 00:41:45
I agree Kev. Not a fan of that single button or the white panels on the sleeves. NB have been a bit poor for me, personally.

{Ed007's Note - I'm on my tablet and can't upload pics on it (facepalm) I've messaged Ed033 to do it asap for me in the morning.}

2.) 21 Apr 2018 00:56:54
I gave it a go Ed 🤔.

3.) 21 Apr 2018 07:35:50
I think its a grower, its one of those tops that when you see the team all wearing it, itl look cracking. As always itl look much better without the sponser. Seems to be check or tartan shadowing going through it. The official description also says that comes with green socks, im not sure about that, prefer just plain white socks n shorts. As per, il buy it no matter, and these days its only for 1 season anyway. Overall, i quite like it, after the initial gasp😂🍀.

4.) 21 Apr 2018 07:39:36
The one with the white panels on sleeve is rotten. Could possibly be the 1st time i refuse to buy a home shirt if this is genuine. Surely to god the club have a say on any design, breaking up the hoops even on the sleeve is as bad as having blue and red on the shirt when we had Ford Peoples as sponsor.

5.) 21 Apr 2018 09:41:12
Hate it. The collar is snide. Why don’t we just stick to the round collar? Green socks too I hear. Another mistake.

6.) 21 Apr 2018 10:09:16
I agree Stan, like our history, hoops should not be broken. I didn't know it was green socks either. That's put it from about a 5 down to a 3/ 10 for me. If they wanted a button collar, they should use the same sort of collar as the pink kit last season or at least a proper grandfather collar with two or three buttons.

7.) 21 Apr 2018 10:47:49
Looks better than the leaked photo I seen earlier. I think the sponsor ruins it would've preferred if they had just stuck with the gold print like on the current home strip.

{Ed007's Note - The chequered pattern is very reminiscent of our centenary year top or is it just me that sees that? The neck, again it's a riot, if you have a thick/fat neck like me round necked tops look hideous imo so I won't be buying this one until it's on sale. I'm not spending £60 on a 'sittin' aboot tap'.
Even the collar from THIS Liverpool top would have been better.}

8.) 21 Apr 2018 10:54:44
I loved last seasons it was as close to the 67 kit as you are going to get. I will not be buying this. What are Celtic playing at allowing New Balance to break up the Hoops.

9.) 21 Apr 2018 11:12:04
Should have got Hummel. 😏.

{Ed007's Note - That was never going to happen, according to THIS, Hummel only "focus on the underdogs and characterful misfits of the sports world".
No laughing at the back there!}

10.) 21 Apr 2018 11:39:27
Sitting aboot tap haha.

{Ed007's Note - Like you don't know what I mean lol :-D

11.) 21 Apr 2018 20:34:48
These fitted tops do nothing for my bucky belly.



11 Mar 2018 10:39:11
Looks like DDV is injured and Bain is starting.

If BR, as has been suggested, is looking to add a bit of extra creativity in attacking midfield I'd like to see us go for Lasse Schöne. He's only got a year left on his contract and at 32 might not cost very much but would bring excellent experience. He normally hits around double figures from midfield.


1.) 15 Jul 2018 12:18:54
Averages 9.5 a season😊.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 12:32:27
Cut myself off . he was / is a great player. but mgregor is fast becoming that type of player along with rogic . and dare I say it. mginn if we ever decide to actually buy him.

3.) 15 Jul 2018 14:31:53
I did say "around" double figures haha! I agree with McGinn but BR did say he was looking to replace Paddy as well. If that means an out and out winger then fair enough but if not then we could definitely do worse.

4.) 15 Jul 2018 16:20:28
Been pleasantly surprised at Morgan in what little I've seen so far . and young Johnstone looks like he he has the makings of a great player . with the bonus both can play either wing.

5.) 15 Jul 2018 18:15:17
I’d love BR to give Johnston a proper chance this season.



10 Jul 2018 19:20:41
Excellent result away in very tough heat. There were a handful of nervy-ish moments but overall the team looked very comfortable. That should be the tie beyond all doubt after tonight.


1.) 10 Jul 2018 19:37:32
Defo - nice and comfortable

Our set pieces haven’t improved much though, hope that’s something we can fix as we always seem to have many opportunities and don’t consolidate on them.

2.) 10 Jul 2018 19:51:54
Very comfortable and young Morgan had some nice touches.

3.) 10 Jul 2018 22:53:45
Hope we keep Morgan, the lad has good potential, just needs his chance. HH.



05 Jul 2018 11:09:10
With now being the mid point of Moussa's contract, I'd like to see the club offer him a bumper wage rise to tempt him to sign an extension and then let him move on next summer after another great season - which I think he'll have if he stays injury free. I don't know what he's on just now but say he was given £40-50k, that would pay for itself if we could get £25M+ for him in a year's time.


1.) 05 Jul 2018 16:33:16
I agree Kev. I just think we might wait to see what happens this window with him and if he's still here, then during season we'll look to get it sorted, for the reasons you're thinking. I can't wait to see him, fingers crossed with an injury free season. We know what he can do.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 19:54:11
Ed can we not add Walloper as button?

{Ed007's Note - God no, the thumbs up/down kids would go off their nut!}

3.) 06 Jul 2018 01:51:09
This window has been brilliant so far in that unlike the previous 2/ 3 Windows M
Dembele hasn't been reported to be leaving us every day by our anxious fans

Now when M D departure date seems to be on the long finger and it looks like he will be with us for another year, I couldn't believe it . I was away for a few days and was met with K Tierney leaving us. Seems fans have gone on a mad rush to get rid of one our best players . I don't know the origin of the rumours and I don't believe them.



28 Jun 2018 08:49:54
Robbie Keane spotted at Lennoxtown. 5 year deal apparently.


1.) 28 Jun 2018 10:03:50
Far too early transfer deadline day a while off yet haha.

2.) 28 Jun 2018 10:28:01

22 Jun 2018 18:27:35
I hope nobody has read too much into Gamboa having a good game today. He looked good at the last WC, got his big move to the PL and has played 30 league games in the 4 years since.


1.) 22 Jun 2018 19:18:34
Nobody is getting carried away. I want him to play well so we get more money for him when he’s punted. But, fair play to him he did well, apart from one suicidal ballsup. He got away with it but it reminded me why he’s not good enough.

2.) 23 Jun 2018 00:33:08
I'm not saying he is a world beater. I'm simply saying he hasn't had a run in the team at Celtic.

He disappears for months then gets thrown in against PSG, Barcelona or teams of that level, then gets his performance criticised.

Hard to judge unless you get a proper run of games. However if he can handle Neymar, even as a one off then I'm sure he can handle the SPL tbh.

3.) 23 Jun 2018 07:45:16
I support him at the world cup cause he's a celtic player, simple as that.

4.) 23 Jun 2018 09:40:52
Like 'Eric', Allen, Ciftci and Compper, BR clearly does not see Gamboa in his plans and although I want every current Celtic player to do well in Russia - I don't think he will be here next season.

Ed I'll be honest, I'm not reading all of that haha but I see that there are a lot of points to be covered during negotiations.

There needs to be a balance of whether getting the player in and settled is worth more than saving what, to us, amounts to fairly small change.


{Ed007's Note - This could be a good to to show a breakdown on transfer monies again, this doesn't include wages. Remember St Mirren are also due 30% -33% of any fee Hibs get for McGinn and note that McGinn hasn't requested a transfer (yet?) so is due 5% of the fee plus any monies owed to him via his contract:

(a) Transfer fee - the big number.
(b) Any levy applied by the local FA – 5% for the EPL.
(c) Tax due on the transfer fee – typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable.
(d) Agent fees – this may be to one or more agents.
(e) Tax due on the agent fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(f) Intermediary fees – this may be to one or more sponging leeches (what do you mean you have a super agent?) .
(g) Tax due on the Intermediary fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the Intermediary bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(h) Signing on fee to the player (possibly including non-reclaimable VAT if the player is VAT registered).
(i) Legal fees.
(j) VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable.
(k) Moving/relocation costs for the player.
(l) VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable.
(m) Paying up insurance costs to the selling club (sometimes waived).
(n) Variables and tax on variables which may or may not be reclaimable) – these would typically include legal fees, moving/relocation costs, etc.. This was off the top of my head and I may well have forgotten something. The big numbers are the transfer fee, agent fees and possibly other intermediary fees (what do you mean you have a super agent?}

What is paid by the selling club would typically include:

(a) If the player is under 24 and moving between different football associations, a Solidarity contribution paid to his previous clubs responsible for his training - this is 5% of the transfer fee received (apportioned 5% of the contribution for each year from the season of his 12th birthday to the season of his 15th birthday and 10% of the contribution for each season from his 16th to 23rd birthdays).
(b) If the player moves to a higher category club (all clubs being categorised 1 to 4) then Training Compensation is due for the period of age 12 to 21. Compensation is due to all clubs when the player turns from amateur to professional and thereafter only when he moves from his final training club to another club. The initial training compensation is levied at the training costs associated with Category 4 clubs. The subsequent figure is agreed between the sides or tribuneral if necessary.
(c) Any monies owed to the player if he did not request a transfer – again this is 5% of the transfer fee received.
(d) Any monies owed to the player in terms of his contract (typically outstanding owed wages (not future wages) and bonuses).
(e) Any money contractually due to a previous club as the result of a sell-on clause.}

Absolutely. I’m more interested in our club doing well than their club doing badly, so anything that makes it easier for us to qualify is a positive. Playing Thursday and Sunday usually disrupts teams domestically anyway so would probably help us too.

@JJ - No he didn’t. He said he’d have liked to have more in by now, not expect. Nobody knows how far along transfers are or who’s been approached other than McGinn because Hibs made it public.

Plus kids tops + season books + European games + travel. Fair enough if you're fortunate enough to not worry about that Pablo but it all adds up for others and then they'll bring out another 3 new kits next season.
