The New No 7 is on his way, he will be announced just before the KO against the mini Huns tomorrow, loan again this season, with fixed price to buy at the end of season, Welcome. Back Sir.


1.) 13 Jul 2017 09:24:36
could a new 7 be an old 27?

2.) 13 Jul 2017 09:45:36
I am very excited about this, I got it from a friend who is a man city nut, and I really hope it is true and in the bag.

3.) 13 Jul 2017 10:14:40
Believe it when it happens Malika mate.

4.) 13 Jul 2017 10:19:19
Dont want any loan player having the 7 jersey tbh, even with option.

5.) 13 Jul 2017 11:11:23
Why bother negotiating a loan with a fixed price if we want to buy him now?

6.) 13 Jul 2017 11:38:04
Heard a few days back BR wants as many as 3 more top players in so i'm praying Paddy is one of them. Said it before if we can get this lad long term he would be our best signing in 20 years. Don't think Tierney will want to leave any time soon but if he had his buddy beside him for 10 in a row we can build a team around that 2. Hope we continute to get rid of the players who clearly don't have a future at the Club and we get more of the youths out on loan to other SPL clubs as its worked with Ajer and Christie. Pains me to say it but i now think Henderson will have to move for the sake of his career, i think he's fantastic and will follow his career regardless where he goes but we now have so many midfielders i don't see him holding down a place unfortunately. Same applies for Bitton.

7.) 13 Jul 2017 13:10:12
You're mate is a man city nut but somehow knows when celtic will unveil a new signing? Knowing about the signing, I could see as viable but not knowing when Celtic will unveil.

8.) 13 Jul 2017 16:04:16
If you were down to your last tenner, how many would stick it on Paddy being announced tomorrow?

No one?

Thoughts so.

I think this is a pile, but I hope it's true.

9.) 13 Jul 2017 17:47:37
Loan player who is in line to be first loaner to get a testimonial!



10 Jul 2017 11:21:08
Just heard from a friend of mine that Paddy Roberts is not included in the Man City, pre season tour squad. My friend is a bit of a city fanatic and normally doesn't miss much that goes on there, maybe good news for us?


1.) 10 Jul 2017 13:23:54
It hasn't been named yet. Is he a pal of Pep?

2.) 10 Jul 2017 13:30:50
Beat me to it. I have looked over all the city pages and they only came back today for training and nothing confirmed on squad.

3.) 10 Jul 2017 14:34:39
We are open to wishful thinking re wee paddy, in uo there with the best of them, but we need to not take anything at face value.

I will be gutted if paddy doesn't return. I know I'm not alone there.

4.) 10 Jul 2017 14:47:49
I asked my pal, about the squad being named, he told me that those going were told yesterday, public announcements I do not know about,

5.) 10 Jul 2017 18:17:56
I hope you're right. That would make my day.



18 Jun 2017 11:19:44
See some of the papers are reporting that Everton might come in for Dembelle, that might be a good bit of business all round,30 million plus James McCarthy sounds like good business and a nice pot to source a couple of good signings with. That would be progress which would please the board and keep us plebs dreams of CL and 10 in a row going strong.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 11:51:22
I hope he stays but this could be a great move for him if true as lukaku is leaving and could end up with plenty game time.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 13:05:33
£30m + McCarthy would be an amazing bit of business.

3.) 18 Jun 2017 16:12:58
£30m + McCarthy. Rodgers could do some damage with that sort of money without even dipping into his own budget/ champions league or potential VVD money.

That sort of money could pay for the likes of

Jean-Kevin Duverne
Paddy Roberts
Henry Onyekuru
Sardar Azmoun.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 16:15:05
Is McCarthy going to take a big drop in wages then?, I would like McCarthy in but I would prefer to keep Dembelle for another year, his value is only going to increase.

5.) 18 Jun 2017 16:52:07
Nowhere have I seen £30m + McCarthy quoted. I honestly think £23m + McCarthy + a 10 per cent sell on clause would be amazing biz! Hope I am totally wrong btw. HH!

6.) 18 Jun 2017 17:01:52
Clutching at straws lads, no way would we get 30 plus mccarthy.

7.) 18 Jun 2017 19:41:05
10m plus McCarthy would be tremendous business. HH.

8.) 18 Jun 2017 21:45:46
I wish people would stop going on about McCarthy, for the last year or so he's been consistently injured . I also don't really see him controlling many games in the prem or for Ireland. For the outlay I'd think there is more important areas.

9.) 19 Jun 2017 09:47:07
35mill plus mcarthy plus 25 % add on / sell on clause. and they are still getting a bargain . they want him to replace lukaku which means they think he's up to the job . do you think theyd accept 10 mill plus an ok player plus 10% for lukaku. no chance. if he's going to the epl the so called greatest / richest league in the world then its epl transfer money. we don't need to sell. we gave away wanyama. foster . Virgil . with "its only spl he's playing in "mentality . no more.

10.) 19 Jun 2017 15:55:26
Why the rush to sell Dembelle and why link his sale with the purchase of Mc Carthy . Neither are realistic . I think that Celtic should sell Dembelle when it suits Celtic not the SMSM who would like nothing better than see Celtic sel their top stars too early and at a bad price.

11.) 19 Jun 2017 22:12:01
Bhoys i am betting now we don't sell dembele for more than £20 mill. let's not argue the point just wait till he is sold.

12.) 19 Jun 2017 22:13:29
its the papers that are trying to sell dembele, he hasn't told celtic he wants to leave.



14 Jun 2017 10:10:59
Reto ziglier, that comes from the left field, says he has already been offered a contract, plays in KT's position and d is out of contract with FC SIon.


1.) 14 Jun 2017 11:05:11
I thought Izzy had just signed an extension.

2.) 14 Jun 2017 11:56:41
This is a bit of an odd one. Ziegler has a fair bit experience, but Izzy is one of our most experienced players and more than capable of being cover, unless of course he's on the move?

3.) 14 Jun 2017 11:59:49
i doubt he would extended his contract then make him 3rd choice.

4.) 14 Jun 2017 14:01:03
DR reporting they've made calls to Celtic sources and there's no interest in Ziegler. Just trying to drum up interest for himself.

5.) 14 Jun 2017 21:13:09
KT maybe switching sides perhaps. Just a suggestion but has been mentioned here BR likes to change people's position so maybe that's it or he's going to push KT further up field.

Or play this guy at cb as he can play there allegedly.

Or maybe it's a non starter and just paper chat.



31 Mar 2017 13:44:16
Some Rags touting Scott Bain, does anybody know anything? I was hoping that Michael Vorm was comming but with CG signing a 3 yr deal, that may have gone by the wayside.


1.) 31 Mar 2017 18:01:26
I think we have been linked with him in the past. Anytime I've seen him (which is mostly against us) he looks like a decent keeper, makes some gd saves.

2.) 31 Mar 2017 18:19:33
To small what about Angus Gunn at Man City future Scotland keeper if he does not get a England call up.

3.) 31 Mar 2017 18:38:44
Was he not playing for england under 21's last week? Is he allowed to play for scotland as long as he's not played with england first team?

4.) 01 Apr 2017 12:46:48
Is this the same Scott bain that shipped 7 last nite. 9 shots on target 7 goals hardly looks good on him.

5.) 01 Apr 2017 13:09:57
I liked the guy that was on loan to Aberdeen fae Liverpool.

6.) 02 Apr 2017 04:03:56
Kev83 thought he did well for them as well.

09 Aug 2018 16:21:36
Just listening to Sam Allerdyce on sly taking about the amount of signings Everton have made and the amount of surplus players they will have, does anybody think that we would be back in for James McCarthy? I also liked the look of Mohamed Besic,6 million maybe a great price.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 16:33:47
Would take McCarthy in a heartbeat Malika, would make up for losing McGinn. He's back training and looking fit.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 16:36:54
James McCarthy spends more time on the treatment table than on the pitch.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 16:52:28
Why does anybody think we are going to match any EP. Players wages when Lawell baulked at £750k for a player who will move for upwards of £15m in a year?

Delusional. Even Championship play.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 17:01:20
Much the same as Dembele and Griffiths Kev.

5.) 09 Aug 2018 17:06:52
So we should sign another Stan?

6.) 09 Aug 2018 17:07:46
15 million in a year?
Please tell me you ain't talking about squad player Mcginn? 😂😂😂😂.

7.) 09 Aug 2018 17:13:55
No wonder your laughing Kev

McCarthy can stay in the physio room at Everton and McGinn will be a championship player for his whole Villa contract.

8.) 09 Aug 2018 17:17:03
Yes, I'd take him no problem at all. Injuries happen it's part of the game, happens in all sports. His latest was a break he can't be blamed for that it's not like a recurring injury like Dembele and Griffiths seem to have.

9.) 09 Aug 2018 17:26:00
How many multi-million pound players on EPL wages did the AEK Athens team that held us to a draw at home in their first competitive game of the season have last night?

10.) 09 Aug 2018 17:38:09
Would take McCarthy any day of the week. Fantastic player. Agree with Stan would make up for losing McGinn. I think MCarthy is the better player but McGinn has youth on his side. I hear what you’re saying Kev regarding his injuries however his last one was an unlucky leg break making a fantastic last ditch tackle. Could have happened to any of player. Still only 27 years old. Interesting how Brendan mentioned last week how the English window closing early could benefit Celtic. So come on Peter go out and get McCarthy and while you’re at it bring Paddy home, you’ve got some making up to do!

11.) 09 Aug 2018 17:42:42
Stan it's one thing for injures to happen but it's another to go out and sign a player that has spent
630 days injured and missed 80 games since 2011.
He's injury prone and what use is that?

12.) 09 Aug 2018 17:43:29
Kev, I don’t think Brendan Rodgers agrees with you regarding (quote) ‘squad player’John McGinn and neither do I. A major blow for me that undoubtedly put a downer on the team before last nights game which has left the manager potentially a tad dissalusioned and as I said last night the only player to bullly Broonie last season my friend.

13.) 09 Aug 2018 17:48:15
New manager needed then jfp.?

14.) 09 Aug 2018 17:52:37
BR rates him and clearly O'Neill does too. That's good enough for me he would stroll the SPL. Everton have spent a fortune today whos to say we can't get him on loan with a view to buy?

15.) 09 Aug 2018 18:21:29
Unfortunately DRB while it breaks my heart I think yes a new manager will be required at potentially one of our most successful times in our history and the board should hang their head in shame as in my view it would take much for a man who knows very much what we’re all about to walk away. Sad day.

16.) 09 Aug 2018 19:00:27
I would buy the whole AEK defence on last nights showing.

17.) 09 Aug 2018 18:22:10
Ed genuine question here are you aware if Brendan or any of his staff follow the site just so they know who we would like signed? 😂😂.

{Ed007's Note - If they did read the site we'd win every game 5-0 lol

18.) 09 Aug 2018 19:20:03
Jfp if we have a full squad to pick from then NO WAY would Mcginn make the starting line up.
Who would you drop for him?
Brown or ntcham geez peace.

19.) 09 Aug 2018 19:45:11
Kev what age is Brown and what age is McGinn. Listen to BRs interview and try to remain open to the possibility you might not always be right. Yir geeing me a sare heid and I’m up early so off to ma kip. Goodnight and God Bless. ☘️.

20.) 09 Aug 2018 22:29:08
Talk of Brendan going is a bit premature, but if he does, we have to replace him with Steve Clarke of Kilmarnock. This man knows how to build a solid defence with limited funds, which is the situation we are in now.
Celtic have to get Boyata signed up now, or he goes for a song
at Christmas. £9 million down the swanee after turning down Fulham.

21.) 10 Aug 2018 22:32:07
I, too would take MaCarthy but only if there was no other midfielder available now or for 5 yrs . The man was good at Hamilton but his career is all down hill since then.



08 Aug 2018 12:21:07
Is McGinn doing a medical with us today, if not he should be. I am not referring to the quality of the player, our manager has already identified him as one of his targets. I am referring to the CEO and Owner who should be doing handstands to keep the manager and supporters happy.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 12:50:04
McGinn is making a decision whether to accept the Villa offer to hold discussions with Celtic. I think he will go to Villa.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 13:02:41
DD ain't our owner malika although he likes to think he is. The support have put more cash into the club since he became largest shareholder.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 13:28:54
McGinn supposed to be going through a medical at Aston Villa. let's finally put that one to bed and move on! Frustrating losing out on the lad and the manager clearly not happy about it. just got to hope they’ve got someone else lined up!

4.) 08 Aug 2018 14:18:00
I think he will sign for us. It’s been an unnecessary Lawell caused palava, but his own desire to be a Celtic player I feel will win the day. Hopefully.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 17:00:21
No chance Magicpole. He is a Villa player.



31 Jul 2018 21:27:30
Legia Warsaw knocked out of CL, always a good feeling saying Addios to that Shower.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 00:47:02
They spanked us though.

2.) 01 Aug 2018 08:30:43
Why the hatred, they were the better team by miles, and but for (if I remember correctly) a sub who wasn’t properly registered, they got thrown out, and we got humped again in the next round.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 09:31:33
For one they tried to blame us for them getting thrown out. Said a good few nasty things about our club.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 12:58:39
I remember their chairman coming out and saying that Celtic wouldn’t talk to him on the phone etc, and saying that he was a Celtic supporter and was disappointed and thought we should have pulled out the tourney, but to me it was frustration that a secretary has ballsed up player registration, we would have been as angry mate.

5.) 01 Aug 2018 23:32:23
Need to sign quality cb and rb, also need left winger,3 quality signings could make the difference.



10 Jul 2018 15:37:03
Hail hail Bhoys and Girls.
We Start Again, isn't it great to be a Celt, not expecting a big show today with the heat, just controlled today and then give them What For in Paradise.
I am really glad to be here to start the season, I had a heart attack in May, have had some surgery and then some stents inserted, I am doing ok, having some mobility issues due to the blood dilution tablets, but hopefully that will clear up soon. The Wife has allowed me back online, so can't wait to get started, so it's Live Chat and CTV for me today, Great to be alive.


1.) 10 Jul 2018 15:43:06
Great to hear Malika. Enjoy yourself.

2.) 10 Jul 2018 15:48:04
All the best Malika 🍀.

3.) 10 Jul 2018 16:07:22
Hope you pick up soon Malika, you take care (Y)

4.) 10 Jul 2018 16:14:01

5.) 10 Jul 2018 18:34:17
All the best buddy
Watch the blood pressure on the road to a treble treble with a few champions leagues nights under the new lights thrown in.

When the tribute go bust you’d better have an ambulance on stand by!



10 Jun 2018 15:28:38
Let's get SA out to WBA on a swap with James mcClean, get him out on the left, he would soon put the fear of God into the opposition and would score midfield goals for fun,


1.) 10 Jun 2018 15:46:48
James McLean at 29 nearly 30 has scored 44 career goals do you honestly believe he would start scoring goals for fun if he came here? Is being Irish and a Celtic fan reason enough to take an average at best player? Imo he's no better than hayes.

2.) 10 Jun 2018 17:22:28
DRP I agree with some of your post and disagree with other bits.
I really don't think a lot of people would want McLean if it wasn't for the fact he was an Irish Celtic fan.
But he is better than Hayes.
But he is not better than Scott Sinclair.
He would make the squad better but no way would he be an automatic starter.

3.) 10 Jun 2018 17:28:57
James McClean for Stuart Armstrong are you serious Malika? , James McClean is not good enough to get in our team and is nowhere near as good as Stuart Armstrong .

4.) 10 Jun 2018 20:10:06
I agree. McLean should be no where near Celtic. If Armstrong wants to go that's fine. We don't need to include him in any swap deal. CL qualifiers start in 4 weeks and we need some players so I am getting slightly worried about where we are so far. We need players in for pre season which starts in 2 weeks. BR and the Board need to get the finger out or this is going to be another disappointing window.

5.) 10 Jun 2018 20:33:32
Johnnymac u at the wind up! Get the finger out, the transfer window has just opened! Wee bit early to be worried about disappointing transfer windows bud! Lol. brendan will know what we need and the positions we need strengthening in!

6.) 10 Jun 2018 21:11:27
Sometimes we look too much through green tinted specs when it comes to possible targets and lose sight of the quality of the current squad, the formation and style of play we favour and the ability and value of players in a very over-inflated and exaggerated market.
The current trend has been to nurture and develop young talent, whether it is Celtic Academy sourced or otherwise and the only time we should compliment this is by adding real proven quality that will definitely improve us in Europe and maintain domestic dominance.

7.) 11 Jun 2018 00:27:15
Although you cannot really compare them because they play in different positions, Armstrong is ten times the football talent that McLean is.

Well he must be very hopeful of a move to epl, english championship clubs, with the execption of the recently relegated clubs are now playing an average of 11k a week, less than half of what he has knocked back. Good Luck to him, the Celtic jersey is obviously to small for his ego, so out him asap.

He has lost the plot in Spain, he does not make the second string at Real because they do not know him as he trains with the first team, and last season Zidane made him train on his own. He is 19 yrs old and on 86k a week, he will not becoming anywhere near us.

If any of them offer 15 mil then take it, his head is up his arse now so say thanks and ship him out, he his no good for us now. We have Griff who can put the ball in the nett just as regularly as MD, the only difference is LG wants to be here, and after a 40 goal season had every right to be tetchy when left on the bench.
None of the big boys in Europe have even looked at MD this season so 15/ 20 is a wonderful price.
Sell on % is difficult, but at least we have a good commercial guy in Lawell who will work his chops off to secure a deal, whatever you might say about him regarding spending makes no difference as he certainly knows about earning money for CFC.

He will be off if this behavior from the board continues.
