That's the Slovan Bratislava president urging us not to miss out on Sporar yet again. If there's so much interest from so many clubs why is he so desperate for us to put a bid in? It's not like Sporting Lisbon and Al Gharafa don't have plenty of cash to chuck about.


1.) 07 Jan 2020 17:24:04
I'm not sure if they're desperate for us to put a bid in mate he was maybe just saying he's surprised we haven't followed up after holding talks 2 weeks ago, it seems as if the guy is just mentioning teams so they can ask for a bigger price.

Got to be sceltic of the Slovakian league as bayo scored 18 goals before January last season but hasn't really done anything since he came here, but then again this guy sporar is scoring goals in the Europa league and seems far more accomplished.

Time will tell kev if we go for him but judging by our past transfer activity we will probably miss out on him and go down the loan route during the last week of the window.

2.) 07 Jan 2020 17:35:17
If what he says is true and we've held talks and then not followed it up two weeks later then to me that looks like he's probably not our first choice and that his club are trying to get us back interested by going on about all these teams chasing him so that we rush into a bid.

3.) 08 Jan 2020 01:54:00
100% mate, if we wanted him that badly after holding talks then I'm sure he would be close to being a celtic player by now but I reckon we've got a list of targets and are playing the waiting game before jumping straight in.



28 Dec 2019 12:24:36
The situation with this Brazilian defender is very strange. He's trying to get his contract torn up over unpaid wages but the courts have said no. If he fails then he's valued anywhere from £3-5 million even though he's 23 and hasn't reached 70 professional games.


1.) 28 Dec 2019 12:45:08
I still get shivers down my spine when l think of the last CB we got from Brazil! Bad flashbacks! RAFAEL SCHEIDT worst ever.

2.) 28 Dec 2019 12:57:34
I keep thinking the same when I read about this guy Ter.

3.) 28 Dec 2019 13:39:25
It’s no for me lads! Brazilian centre backs and Scottish football are a recipe for disaster! Add all the baggage into it and I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole!

4.) 28 Dec 2019 14:46:55
He was part of a Cruzeiro team that was relegated for the first time in their history.
There is now only 3 clubs in Brazilian football that have never been relegated.
I remember we played Cruzeiro in our Centenary match and beat them 4-2.
It was quite a dirty game for a friendly. I think they got a player sent off.

5.) 28 Dec 2019 15:53:31
It all seems a bit messy from the off. How is it we can even sign him? I thought players from Brazil had to be regular internationalists to get a work permit?

6.) 28 Dec 2019 17:21:24
Plenty of time jt couple of conmancaf cup games and call me Raphael he'll be over on the next boat to rock our world!

7.) 28 Dec 2019 21:07:26
He wouldn't get a work permit without an appeal. Most appeals go through tho.

8.) 29 Dec 2019 09:40:23
Ta kev 👍.



17 Dec 2019 21:55:32
We've been linked with Giannis Bouzoukis from Panathinaikos in the press today. Normally it's just a name drop but the report I saw mentioned that Nick Hammond is particularly keen on him. Who knows? Attacking midfielder so a replacement for Tam perhaps?


1.) 17 Dec 2019 22:10:16
Sooner Rogic goes the better to be honest. Good player on his day but his time is up, never reached his potential based on injuries. Scored some amazing and meaningful goals for us but at the same time I think we’re trying to get this clubs moving and challenging in Europe again going by the calibre of players we are actually looking at. We have the projects here and now, we’ll keep adding as new players come through. I think it’s time to start clearing the odd player here and there and replacing them. We have the depth available and the new facilities will help immensely with our youth set ups and indoor training for the winter. All massive bonuses moving forward but it’s about seeing this tough month through and getting to that winter break. Rest recuperate and come back for more with a couple new signings to bed in. My honest opinion is that Rogic and Ntcham might move on and Wanyama (dependant on Ntcham situation) will come in. A new striker and potentially another that can come in and play centre back.

2.) 17 Dec 2019 22:56:43
We need browns replacement in sharpish say what you want there is bargains to be had Jeremy frimpong 300 000 grand . Oh my days what a bargain to be honest the Nicky Hammond seems to be a real snip but time will tell i guess .

3.) 18 Dec 2019 06:58:12
Was frimpong not a develoment fee.

4.) 18 Dec 2019 12:18:17
Lenny is going to ship Sinky out and bring James Mc Clean in on loan for the rest of the season.

5.) 18 Dec 2019 13:15:36
Not entirely certain that McLean is any better than sinclair to be fair.

6.) 18 Dec 2019 13:42:47
Sinclair gave us three seasons of 60 goals and a few assists. Morgan and Johnston can only dream of this, Elyannouusi is only here temp.
James McLean will never match up to those stats either, so we really need to go after like-for-like as well as another striker.
Although we are two points clear at the moment, it's paramount that we continue winning and with added firepower - winning convincingly.

7.) 18 Dec 2019 13:44:49
Mcclean isn't good enough for us.

8.) 18 Dec 2019 14:50:21
Would love to bring Wanyama back but if it does happen it's likely to be a short term loan. We need to identify Brown's long term replacement. If that turns out to be McGregor then we need to get his in. Would be happy to see Rogic go but still feel Ntcham can offer something.

9.) 18 Dec 2019 17:13:50
Better off with lex McLean, older posters will know who he is.

10.) 18 Dec 2019 17:34:31
I reckon Browns replacement could be Christie. Brown played more advanced in his early days and RC has same appetite and engine and could easily follow browns path to midfield general. I think there is a better chance of holding on to him since he was from ICT and a bit of a late ish developer into our team. He can also put himself about.



15 Dec 2019 10:49:28
Ed, any news on when Elhamed might be back?


{Ed007's Note - He might be ready for Hearts on Wednesday but probably only for a place on the bench.}

1.) 15 Dec 2019 14:00:11
3-5-2 or 3-5-1-1?



02 Sep 2019 18:01:14
Reports that the Taylor fee is agreed. I'm quietly hopeful of one more as well after Lennon said he hoped to be busy today.


1.) 02 Sep 2019 18:14:55
I think Taylor and the young RB from Man City will be business done, unless PL pulls a rabbit out the hat but don't see it.

2.) 02 Sep 2019 18:08:47
No way Kevbhoy can’t see it.

3.) 02 Sep 2019 18:32:25
Does the rabbit have sell on value SW?

4.) 02 Sep 2019 18:36:13
Lawell has no need to pull a Rabbit out the hat now - after yesterday when he saw his three main buys contributing brilliantly in the game.
I would have loved big Vic on loan to toughen up the midfield and help Broony; however, if Ntcham is staying? He may not see the need to spend more of the KT cash - on top of all the other business.
Forster, Connell, El Hamed, Jullien, Boli, Afolabi, Elyounnoussi, Bauer and now Taylor is almost an entire team brought in, so I suppose we should not be greedy and we still have Shved as well.

Calm is required after a poor day at the office today. We didn't play well but there is so much time to go. I think we'll need to show a bit of ambition when it comes to a CB coming in and, as much as he's let everyone down, today's game was screaming out for Griffiths imo. Nobody should be worried after today's result.


1.) 10 Aug 2020 08:12:37
We were brutal yesterday never created 1 chance through open play. Manager couldn't change it when chips were down. Player's lacked urgency and ideas. Our full backs never beat a man. Our wingers never beat a man. Our defenders were scared of 1 physical player.
Lots of football to be played but no let's kid ourselves on. Yesterday was horrendous. Our board play transfer window monopoly every season.

2.) 10 Aug 2020 09:16:57
kev why should no one be worried, yes there's all season to go but we should be much better than we are in defence, after all we were against the likes of dykes and cosgrove in fact against any rough them up type striker last season and our c/ h's struggled and surely any team that has that type of forward will continue to cause us trouble, plus are we that poor in the out field that we need rogic back to break down a team that sits in.

3.) 10 Aug 2020 09:53:26
We shouldn't be worried because it's by and large the same team who had us 13 points clear and counting when the previous season was ended. There was mass hysteria last season as well when we dropped 5 points in 2 games. Transfer Monolpoly or not, that's the XI that would have started regardless and it's a failure from the players not to beat a honking Kilmarnock team. Lennon has to take plenty of the blame as well.

4.) 10 Aug 2020 09:56:43
I remember Jullien having a shocker against Dykes one time. The next game we beat them 4 or 5 nil but nobody mentions that. Don't remember Cosgrove ever giving us many problems either tbh. We need to strengthen obviously but I won't be panicking about it.



05 Aug 2020 10:40:29
If I was the CEO of the club that are "very close" to signing Ivan Toney, I'd be asking Barry Fry why he's in the papers urging Celtic to come in and hijack the deal. The guy's clearly a clown and gives me the impression there's not as much concrete interest in Toney as he expected and he's getting desperate.


1.) 05 Aug 2020 11:38:48
He's a right wee 'Arthur Daly' cockney wide boy and although Toney would do very well at Celtic - and he seems keen, the Peterborough Chairman and co are playing 'The Price is Right' with the lad and trying to set a bidding-war and Celtic will not participate.
It's yet another soap opera in our 'windows' where there always seems to be a stumbling block, hinderance or obstacle to complicate our transfer activity and frustrate.

2.) 05 Aug 2020 11:55:58
They're quite right to want top dollar you can't blame them.

3.) 05 Aug 2020 13:58:00
Good point Kev. I get the impression we're the only bidders too. Ferguson said he needs to sell Toney in order to buy so I say make them sweat a bit then go back with a marginally higher offer.

4.) 05 Aug 2020 16:10:03
Absolutely Mally but surely you can see how disrespectful it is to do it through the press when you've already got a deal that's almost done with a different club.

5.) 05 Aug 2020 20:31:24
Kev once the papers run the story it just gets stupid mate.



31 Jul 2020 11:35:07
The new Love Street away top is an absolute screamer. It's just a shame that Hearts won't be in the league but surely we need to wear it if we get drawn against them in the cups lol.


1.) 31 Jul 2020 11:48:30
Celtic wore the lime green away top for an unusual 3 seasons.
We first wore it away to Aarhus in Denmark in September ‘83 and we last wore the strip at that famous Love Street game which won us the league in ‘86.

2.) 31 Jul 2020 13:30:40
Never knew that BB 👍.

3.) 31 Jul 2020 15:40:23
I think back in the day we never got new tops released every year. It was usually ever 3 years but money has overtaken the game. If I remember correctly it was every 3 years for new tops.

4.) 31 Jul 2020 18:31:05
Every 2 years from my memory. Certainly in the 90's it was.

5.) 03 Aug 2020 07:02:36
Buzzbomb is the new statto lol.



27 Jul 2020 21:48:00
Ed, I know your thoughts on Bayo and I can't see us making back much of the fee at all so do you know if there's any interest in him for a loan deal?


{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything, Kev but it's best for all concerned if he moves on, sadly it's just not working out for him at Celtic just now. Just for the record, if it's only a loan I hope he he goes away and smashes it and comes back to us a better player than he is. There comes a point where younger players need to be playing competitive football week in and week out no matter what level that's it, that's the only way they will improve and show what they're made of. Just look at McGregor and Christie for the how it can improve players and it's one of the reasons I think a colt team in the lower divisions would be a good thing for us but maybe not for other teams in those leagues.}

1.) 27 Jul 2020 22:14:54
Cheers Ed. It must have been tough for him because every time there's a window of opportunity he ends up picking up a daft injury. Hopefully he can get a confidence boost somewhere.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

2.) 27 Jul 2020 23:18:26
Doesn't help that he's tom Kite. His touch is woeful. Think we should be blaming the scouting department for this one. At least we had seen Christie in action before signing him.

3.) 27 Jul 2020 23:20:35
I would be quite happy if we offloaded Bayo and Rogic to be honest.

4.) 28 Jul 2020 09:51:58
Brentford done away with there youth academy and decided to go with a B Team. That’s completely working for them and that shows that playing against men at a young age brings you on a lot further. 16-20 year olds need to be first team players in that age range to hit there potential.

5.) 27 Jul 2020 22:58:18
Ed Dundee utd have just made a partner ship with alloa I think. Celtic should do that with a team in each league below us and a couple down south. Get every one of the promising player out playing.

{Ed007's Note - That's a good idea, Kev.}

6.) 28 Jul 2020 10:45:48
I've been questioning this for ages Kev, almost like a feeder team where the lads will get game time, and test themselves at a competitive level.
Not sure the rules on this, I know other clubs like Chelsea use Vitesse, I think its a great opportunity, and in all fairness if Celtic don't see their youngster making it they could give that club first refusal at signing the player, gives the lads a better chance of making it in the game.

7.) 28 Jul 2020 12:14:27
What's the difference between a feeder club and sending the boys out on loan? We've used that a fair bit in the last season or two. We've used St Mirren, East Fife, Alloa, Kilmarnock, Aberdeen, Morton, Dundee Utd, Dunfermline, Ross Cty, Falkirk and Partick. Not to mention the two or three foreign sides.

8.) 28 Jul 2020 13:29:47
I think a couple of advantages of the feeder club is that we build a relationship with the staff there and if we have a few players going out, they might settle easier and quicker especially the young boys.



26 Jul 2020 13:11:11
Surprise surprise, they're having an absolute nightmare with the streams.

Can’t get logged in either, tested it yesterday all fine . Today nothing, why could they have just put them on Celtic tv and give us access to that .

3.) 26 Jul 2020 13:35:24
It is Celtic tv, that's the logo on top right of screen . It's on you tube anyway.

4.) 26 Jul 2020 14:48:27
Credit where its due, they got it sorted for half-time and it's been great ever since.

Did he say whether it was a recent bid or one from a while ago? The rumour atm is Rangers signing a striker from Osijek so chances are it's us he's talking about.

Absolutely no chance Ed. I don't know where all this talk of Ajeti having second thoughts is coming from either. All I've seen is guys on social media saying "he's having second thoughts apparently".

The Peterborough chairman came out publicly and said we had asked to be kept informed of Toney's situation so there must have been some level of interest.

Harsh on Christie for me Buster. I don't think he swans about thinking he's a superstar at all and let's not forget who scored the goal yesterday. Having said that, he's had a slow start and I'd have gone with Ntcham yesterday tbh.

Scott Sinclair couldn't get a game for a honking Villa team and Elyounoussi was bombed out at Southampton. One of the problems with the lower EPL teams is that, because they've got money, they go out and buy players who are doing well for big clubs in other leagues ie. Basle but then when they arrive and the team's got about 35% possession most weeks they wonder why the players struggle.
