CELTIC are closing in on the signing of Rosenborg full-back Birger Meling, not sure what he's like.


1.) 18 Aug 2019 17:40:30
Played very well against us few times over last few seasons.

2.) 18 Aug 2019 17:51:11
Thatโ€™s good to know Kev, hopefully heโ€™s the defender we were looking for.

3.) 18 Aug 2019 22:17:56
If we manage to sign Meling it will be a great bit of business. The fact big Ajer is at the back should help him settle quickly into the squad and country.

Really hope we manage to sign him.

Solid and puts in a shift. What you would expect from a Scandinavian.



21 Aug 2017 20:28:59
Ajax Cape Town havr announced an agreement with Glasgow Celtic, for the sale of defender Rivaldo Coetzee HAS BEEN CONCLUDED .
The search for a CF still continues.


1.) 21 Aug 2017 21:19:27
My only issue with this signing is this, since Ajax Amsterdam are the parent company, then why haven't they signed the boy up? Or is it just a case of someone seeing something that Ajax Amsterdam dont. Interesting i think.

2.) 21 Aug 2017 21:15:21
He's still to take a medical and work permit supposedly.

3.) 21 Aug 2017 21:40:09
Bham - I wouldn't worry about Ajax and defenders.

They said Veltman was a better prospect than Van Dijk, well we know what's happened there.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 09:20:00
He looks brilliant and with Shev and Boyata permanent bomb scares I will take this young guy any day of the week.

Check him out on YouTube.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 09:32:01
A bit unfair on Boyata Mp he was playing consistantly well and scoring some important goals up until injury.

6.) 22 Aug 2017 09:55:11
Boyata ain't the answer Stan. i'll give him credit for getting back in the team and doing well in the spl but against decent strikers he's just not good enough! Don't know if this young guy will be the answer but I'm willing to give him a chance. looks quite aggressive in the challenge and good with both feet. if I'm being honest but I was looking for a bit more experience to be honest! Somebody maybe 27 or 28 who's played in Europe, but maybe we've got another bargain with this kid.

7.) 22 Aug 2017 10:25:43
Time will tell mate we all want a Stubbs or an Elliot but not easy to find. I still think Boyata can do a job for us he has improved dramatically under BR, he had plenty scary moments before BR came in but I think it's unfair to say he has had any prior to injury. I think Jozo had some very slack passes in the Astana game but they were ignored because of the score and everyone talking about how well Bitton played. That said, Jozo is a class act and I don't recall him having any poor games. Be good to see what our new signing has to offer I'm quite happy with us having Jozo, Boyata, Ajer, and Coatzee. Erik for me has been the bombscare so would bite the hand of anyone offering ยฃ3m for him.

8.) 22 Aug 2017 11:24:42
Boyata had a great season once he got in and scored quite few goals.

9.) 22 Aug 2017 12:16:52
I'd prefer a Marc reiper over Stubbs and Elliot thought he was outstanding for Celtic
Take nothing away from the other 2.

10.) 22 Aug 2017 12:47:06
Anyone know what the transfer fee is on this one?

11.) 22 Aug 2017 13:21:35
Supposedly 800k.

12.) 22 Aug 2017 13:23:31
Great player Marco would be hard for me to seperate the 3. I enjoyed watching Stubbs not so much for winning the ball but because he was a fantastic passer of the ball from the back almost all diagonal balls to the wingers went to feet. Thought Kennedy was going to be very similar until injury.

13.) 22 Aug 2017 13:56:31
Bit strange that there is nothing on the Club website?

14.) 22 Aug 2017 15:55:33
Didn't Ed say the other day that no deals are likely to be announced until the team are back at the end of the week?

{Ed007's Note - I just can't see the Club and their PR department announcing any signings without Rodgers there for the pictures.}



30 Jan 2016 17:58:08
Ed, any truth in Feyenoord's Colin Kazim-Richards flying into Glasgow today to hold talks about signing for us?
Is he any good?
Do we need him?
What's the deal?


{Ed007's Note - As far as I know there is no deal.}

1.) 30 Jan 2016 22:51:07
Leeds bhoy . seen the bhoy from dobbs shamrock scored in a trial game. was looking him up and watched some clips of shamrocks and the midfielder brandon meile. looked a player . what do our irish posters think of him is he any good in the flesh worth a punt?

2.) 30 Jan 2016 23:26:23
Hh dr Bhoy, its an no brainer signing in my opinion 18 goals in 13 games says something,
I know he's young and like the Smiths youth FA very few make it at that age, but this guy is rated by the best English and Irish scouts.
He's defiantly worth a gamble.



27 Jan 2016 22:37:44
Ed007: I'm new here, but I assume your the man to ask, I've been reading tonight we're to complete the signing of Manchester City youngster Patrick Roberts.
On loan I assume, did you hear any update?
Do we actually need the wee man?


{Ed007's Note - It looks like Roberts will be coming in but if De Bruyne's injury is serious it could scupper it. For me personally I don't think we need him, especially only until the end of the season but the good thing is it means we aren't signing O'Halloran, so every cloud and all that.}

1.) 27 Jan 2016 23:17:23
Yeah totally agree about O'Halloran, but Roberts at 18 year old bought for ยฃ11Mill by city seems last season seems like a no brainer to our benefit. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ€.

{Ed007's Note - What's the point of bringing him in until the end of the season though? We don't need anyone to win the league, hopefully the treble, so all he'll do is hold back one of our own youngsters.}

2.) 27 Jan 2016 23:24:08
Sorry Ed but I'd rather we signed Michael O'Halloran permanently and developed him than sign Patrick Roberts for 4 months to help Man City develop him, its a no brainer, O'Halloran is a good pacy young forward who would improve greatly playing with better players .

{Ed007's Note - I don't see a 25 year old as a young player and I'd much rather see our young players get a chance than see us bringing in an average SPFL player. Do you really see a 25 year old as a player to bring in as a project and develop? If we are buying players at that age I'm looking for a better standard and quality than Michael O'Halloran who is no better than what we've got, in fact he's worse.}

3.) 27 Jan 2016 23:47:37
That's my original question but now I'm warming to the signing,
Ronnie got a cunning plan lol.
But at least he'll be a great influence on our youths which can't be bad.
Hh Ed๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ€.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

4.) 28 Jan 2016 01:08:08
There can not be any justification or sense in signing an 18 year old on a six month loan, that can be of any benefit to Celtic, the only one getting any benrfit is man c, there youngster is just beig kept fit at the detriment of any youngster coming up thru the ranks and being denied a place by this wunderkid, Celtic need to develop and encourage and play their own 18 year olds rather than be a patsy to man c.

5.) 28 Jan 2016 06:27:11
the man city conveyor continues. I wish the deal had been made to join in the summer. 18 or not he is still an 11m player. We have sviatchenko and if that stuttering ljuban deal goes through we will have spent our tin busting 2m!
I'd like to see nesbit getting the odd game but he isn't ready for playing week in week out.
If forrest decides he isn't signing then I'd freeze him out, freeze him out anyway tbh :) .

6.) 28 Jan 2016 11:58:08
Why would you freeze out one of our players that has really come on this year?

7.) 28 Jan 2016 12:42:23
Cmcbhoy. Forrest has stayed fit. I wouldn't say he a has came on any. I still see the same player with the same abilities and same numerous failings. I don't rate wingers with no awareness, poor finishing and final ball. Added to that if he isn't going to sign a new deal we are going to upping his sign on fee which I don't think he deserves considering his input over the last few years.

8.) 28 Jan 2016 12:47:09
Any time I've seen Forrest this year he's been a class apart. I agree that he needs to be more consistent and that his final ball is not always the best but I think if he's managed the right way and stays fit he could well be a top top player. I did hear that he wasn't happy with the contract offered. He should accept anything with the injuries he's had.

9.) 28 Jan 2016 13:54:48
Ed, I agree that we should be going for a better standard of player than O'Halloran, but I think he is better than you are rating him, he would do a good job for us and that seems to be our market nowadays .

{Ed007's Note - We've got enough deadwood and average players at the club without adding to it. Who would O'Halloran get in the squad in front of, who would you drop for him? Don't you think that if he was any good he'd be at a higher level than St Johnstone by the time he reached 25, he hardly got a game down in England and now after two years of being an average player in a poor St Johnstone team you think he could do a job for us? And here was me thinking we were meant to be building a team to qualify for the CL.
By the way I've been told that we've never contacted either St Johnstone or O'Halloran.}

10.) 28 Jan 2016 15:28:25
He is an ok spl player fast but not a great finisher.
The only reason he has been given all this extra attention by the media is to soften blow to rangers when st johnstone turned them over. Now he is a star!

{Ed007's Note - Exactly, and it seems because of TRIFC's interest all of a sudden some people are thinking he's good enough to play for us. If we has signed O'Halloran last summer the fans would have been seething and rightly so.}

Can anyone explain why we are punished equally with Sevco today for their bad losers attitude, violent aggression towards our players when we beat them at the asbestos dome. After all they received three red cards and Broony was formally judged not to have been unsportsmanlike?


1.) 03 May 2019 11:33:34
Because we celebrating winning an important match in our own stadium with our own fans and sevco couldn't handle it and attacked our players . that's why we should take it the whole road.

2.) 03 May 2019 13:10:35
This biased and totally slanted situation has been going on for as long as I can remember (and long before that) and it will persist unless Celtic eventually protest or simply say 'Hod on a wee minute'.
In this day and age, there is plenty 'video' evidence recorded from various sources - so it'e not just their word against ours.
It's fine saying our dominance and success is testament enough, but I would much prefer seeing our club stand up against corruption.

3.) 05 May 2019 12:32:50
It's a total disgrace and Peter Lawwell needs to insist that the SFA makes public announcement explaining the thinking how Rangerss2012 with 4 people punished are not fined any more than Celtic whose team behaved impeccably even though it's captain and others were targeted.

Rangers2012 manager received a 1 match ban for targeting referee after the match . Celtic must make SFA address their bias towards Rangers immediately .
SFA set out to cheat is clear to everyone with a passing interest in football and it's obvious that on Friday evening that Beaton will cheat Celtic on Saturday like he did on December29th.

Dembele is an example of that stage now, offers now top millions from the EPL, in a word no chance., maybe when heโ€™s in his late 30s.
