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.



24 Nov 2016 17:57:43
Any news on Sinclair, would be a pity if he was out for Sunday?


{Ed007's Note - Nothing to report on Sinclair, we'll probably find out tomorrow.}

1.) 25 Nov 2016 08:53:50
Out for a month.

2.) 25 Nov 2016 17:20:08
Brendan doesn't know whether he can play on Sunday



01 Nov 2016 08:00:26
Anybody know what is the story with LG, flu, food posion, or?


1.) 01 Nov 2016 17:01:05
Gaffer said virus and that's why he has only stay away.



29 Aug 2016 14:41:42
Some bloggers saying James McCarthy is booked in for medical today? Can really not believe that, anybody got any info?


1.) 29 Aug 2016 15:50:56
Would love this to be true but not getting my hopes up until i see him in the green and white.

2.) 29 Aug 2016 16:36:59
Thought he was injured and needed an op?

3.) 29 Aug 2016 16:37:19
We're the bookies favourites to sign him at the minute.

4.) 29 Aug 2016 17:21:24
Neil Lennon
Roy Keane
Moyes were all bookies favourites to be our new manager at one point.

5.) 29 Aug 2016 17:41:02
So Kev you are telling us there is a 1 in 3 chance?

I know you were talking about Lennon coming back this Summer but couldn't resist.

6.) 29 Aug 2016 18:03:02
Hope not, would not be much better. decent player, nothing more.

7.) 29 Aug 2016 17:59:54
Conflicting reports now circulating McCarthy to Celtic is not happening. Another midfielder on the cards? 🤔.

8.) 29 Aug 2016 18:32:43
What's the info Skinny? What you hearing?

9.) 29 Aug 2016 18:54:42
skinny you look like your puttin a wee bit a weight oan no?
here is yur sister no fat?
ur iz it ma glesses lookin thru yur letturboaks.

10.) 29 Aug 2016 19:33:43
Skinnybhoy gie it a rest Mate eh! Lol. what reports? Utter pish!

11.) 29 Aug 2016 19:52:35

Whatsapp - jimmy, its skinny, r u signing fur ra tic
Jimmy - wrang number pal - my names Betty.

12.) 29 Aug 2016 20:14:28
😆😆😆😆😆 nice one digi! U don't half set urself up for sum pelters SB! Lol.

13.) 29 Aug 2016 20:21:31
Why do a lot of people give skinnybhoy grief whether it's made up or not who cares it's a rumor and banter site would be a lot worse if wasn't telling us his info don't let them put you off kid 1 day you will get one right lol.

14.) 29 Aug 2016 21:23:56
Skinnybhoy's in his mid 60's - he's just retired, and because he's bored he's noising all us up! Well that's what my source told me, I'll try and get round all my contacts over the next few hours, if I'm wrong and he is a kid then apologies Gordo, and your good self Skinny!

15.) 29 Aug 2016 21:39:26

He gets a hard time because he talks poo.

We could all claim to know someone in the boardroom, that players already mentioned on here are signing and that we are signing a no-named player IF X, y and z happens but some of us don't because we live in the real world.

16.) 29 Aug 2016 21:47:48
If poor Skinnybhoy is in his mid 60's he has my sympathy . I am 66 and no one even in my family pay any attention to what I say .
All I feel like doing is enjoy the Celtic ride now, because if we ever tumble I don't think I will be around to see Celtic in the ascendancy again.

17.) 29 Aug 2016 22:16:37
I know he talks poo mate but it's harmless fun we don't want him scared away before the window closes on Wednesday lol.

18.) 29 Aug 2016 23:24:43
I prefer a Hoops88 rumour myself.

19.) 30 Aug 2016 07:10:35
Sky sports news transfer analyst commented on mccarthy yesterday and said any deal is unlikely as everton are short on cover in his position and he's technically injured needing an op.
Also Leicester seem interested in him.

Not sure there was anything concrete from us i think any fee would start at 10m.



25 Aug 2016 16:44:08
The guy who told me that Shane Duffty was coming to CFC and Saido Berahino was going to Stoke, (he is retired, but his son is an agent who I know has dealt with some EPL transfers) I had a nice singles and double bet on this, still vald until next wed. Anyway he told me today that Celtic is still a move for Duffy, that discussions were still going yesterday, it is up to him to decide between us and Brighton, and he is moving towards us, the fee is around 3.6 million. he told me also that the James McCarthy move could be on the cards, said that he is on 35k a week, not 50 or 70 and that Bournemouth are in for him with a 8 million offer on the table, but that a CFC loan for this season with us paying all the wages would suit him better. Just passing on what I heard.


1.) 25 Aug 2016 18:01:15
Malika I hope this is a non starter. He ain't good enough and at £3.6 million a complete waste of money.

McCarthy not for me, unless either Bitton and SJ leave

With that draw, we need quality not more of what we have. Need to go a level or 2 above these types.

2.) 25 Aug 2016 18:49:54
There would be a lot better options for 3.6m than Shane "own goal" Duffy.

3.) 25 Aug 2016 18:57:23
Mccarthy would be a great signing imo mobile good passer can read game well and can put himself about.

4.) 25 Aug 2016 19:35:39
I've never watched a game and thought that Mccarthy is some player.

Less than 50 league goals in 300 apps I'm surprised we are looking at him.

{Ed007's Note - What's your point? CDM's tend to not score many goals, our club captain has scored 55 goals in 505 appearances.}

5.) 25 Aug 2016 19:59:39
I think mccarthy would be a great signing he was being linked with a arsenal not so long ago . for me he's better than any other cdm we have at our club including club captain brown. I've no seen a lot of duffy to be honest but I think we need another cd that has serious pace.

6.) 25 Aug 2016 20:23:52
McCarthy would easily be our best cm if he came in.

7.) 25 Aug 2016 20:40:53
Tick67,strange point about McCarthy mate! He's not a goal scoring midfielder mate, and his goal tally is pretty decent considering he's played at a far higher level than anything up here.

8.) 25 Aug 2016 20:44:39
Simonovic has pace Toure has pace and big Eric has pace.

9.) 25 Aug 2016 20:47:36
Is there mileage in the McCarthy link Ed? I actually thought Darron Gibson would be an option via Everton they looking to move him on.

{Ed007's Note - Something could happen if Everton can't sell him which is their preferred choice.}

10.) 25 Aug 2016 21:15:06
that was supposed to say cb lol . eric is slow in my opinion toure has pace and jozo is always injured so far so think we'd be better with more pace as cover cause boyata, ambrose are quick but both are liabilitys imo.

11.) 25 Aug 2016 21:26:19
Guess my point is should we not be looking for a goalscoring midfielder?

Sorry guys just not feeling your enthusiasm for the boy can't for the life of me mind him ever being a good player.

12.) 25 Aug 2016 21:36:57
Darren Gibson? Scraping the barrel with him

Supposed to be looking for players to improve the team not rejects that can't stay fit.

13.) 25 Aug 2016 21:46:03
Just seen law well saying we're in for 1 more, surely we need more than 1 decent player given the group we got?

14.) 25 Aug 2016 22:25:22
I like McCarthy - but he's only marginally better than SB, NB, SA, GMS when they are playing good (which hasn't been a lot lately)
SJ - something going on in his heid - he's been a shadow of himself lately.

15.) 25 Aug 2016 22:26:40
Rocker fella if you think we only
Need one more decent player considering the group we got you are seriously deluded. If we had played a quality team during the week we would be out on oor Arse. The defensive frailties where there for all to see in the first game. And the second game just hammered it home even more. Let's just hope the board seen it too and get some cash out.

16.) 25 Aug 2016 22:27:58
I don't think we need a goalscoring midfielder, we have rogic, Robert, Sinclair and Forrest. We need someone to play next to brown. I think if we could get McCarthy and Paterson from Hearts I'd be more than happy with the squad.

17.) 25 Aug 2016 22:48:44
White bits, did u no read wat a said? We'll need a hell of a lot more than one player to give us a decent account of ourselves.

18.) 25 Aug 2016 22:51:02
Whitebits, Rockerfella said we needed more than one, give the guy a break and read the messages correctly.

19.) 25 Aug 2016 22:51:11
I just don't see it lads. I would be over the moon with McCarthy and realise he's out of favour but he just signed a 5 year deal with Everton last August did he not? That puts him out the loan with option to buy bracket and considering how many EPL teams would pay north of 15 mill surely puts him out of a straight buy market as well.

20.) 26 Aug 2016 02:57:46
Can't believe anyone who has watched our centre mid would think McCarthy wouldn't be good enough lol unbelievable, he would be a class signing.

21.) 26 Aug 2016 07:23:31
Take mcarthy in a heartbeat, would rather have Shane Duffy from boyzone than the one from Blackburn.

22.) 26 Aug 2016 08:30:01
All the people slagging McCarthy when do you actually get to watch him on the match of the day highlights? The Bhoy would walk into our starting 11. i'd start him ahead of Brown or Bitton!

23.) 26 Aug 2016 08:55:36
When do you watch him?

24.) 26 Aug 2016 08:56:37
Is Patterson not a rb?

25.) 26 Aug 2016 09:45:08

Alot more than most i actually go to Goodison Park every season and have seen him make a fool of plenty so called world class EPL players. Saying that i have never seen him play for Ireland as i'm a Scotland fan.

26.) 26 Aug 2016 10:34:30
Peter Lawell has said they will try to bring one more player in. So there won't be two one three players coming in which has been branded about.

27.) 26 aug 2016 10:33:15
i actually know shane duffy very well and his family. there is no substance in shane duffy any longer coming to celtic and as for mccarthy he is definitely on 60k plus a week. just saying what i know.

28.) 26 Aug 2016 11:09:30
I hate to many loan players one is ok but not more than that, best to buy players that want to be part of the team for 3/ 4/ 5 years that is the only way forward we got money so buy.

29.) 26 Aug 2016 12:03:18
doirebhoy, that stuffs my bet, ah well, was hoping he would come as I felt he would be great for us, do you think he is going to Brighton? a few weeks ago he was gambled on from 10/ 1 into 4/ 7 to go to Swansea and some friends of mine in Derry told me that it was a dead cert, and "The whole of Derry is on it" do not know what happened to that.

30.) 26 Aug 2016 12:14:54
Well if he's making a fool of world class players then let's get him in.

I've seen him play many a times first at Hamilton where I thought he would amount to something special.
Seen him many a times at Wigan, Everton and Ireland and personally I've never seen him look any better than average but I'm happy to take your word for it man.


31.) 26 Aug 2016 12:33:26

Celtic Park will be the place where he will show his real class. Fingers crossed. (If it happens! ) . There's nothing better than seeing one of our own in the heart of the engine room. HH.

32.) 26 Aug 2016 12:48:58
Hope you're right Stan the man.
You make a good point tho he's one of us so straight away earns brownie points.


33.) 26 Aug 2016 12:59:55
I honestly think he will produce his best football for us if we can get him. Can you imagine him walking out the tunnel in the green and white v sevco. He'll tear Barton a new one! HH.

34.) 26 Aug 2016 13:58:28
Duffy just signed for Brighton so can cross him off the list.

35.) 26 Aug 2016 14:07:56
That would be worth every penny lol Barton is a duchess 😀.

36.) 26 Aug 2016 22:27:39
I have a feeling, if by any chance we got McCarthy permanently, he will become a very special player for us .

Any good cheltenham tips Tim?


1.) 07 Mar 2017 20:21:07
@Malika still doing my "due diligence" lol but I will be posting some tips closer to Cheltenham, maybe on Monday
Also as I keep saying, check out the football rumours betting page on here as ED023 usually comes up with some nice priced horses.

05 Mar 2017 14:46:48
Great to see LG get a decent run out, time wise today, and a goal, hope it puts some sense iinto him, We want him and he will never ever play on a bigger stage than we give him. Come on LG settle your head and get back to business.


1.) 05 Mar 2017 15:11:32
Just in time for sevco. But gms just will not do not good enough even for a fringe player.

2.) 05 Mar 2017 18:12:52
Chuffed for LG he looked sharp.

Felt a bit sorry for GMS today he was getting into decent positions and making good runs but it just wasn't happening. Roberts was much more affective when he came on.

3.) 05 Mar 2017 18:57:47
GMS is not going to cut it. Sorry for the lad but not upto Celtic standard but will do fine as a pro but not with us. I really think BR will see that today. Well done to BR for changing everuthing at half time. The odds dropped to 1/ 2 at half time so had some of that. Not often you can get Celtic st those prices this season. Result never in doubt.

4.) 05 Mar 2017 19:08:18
Roberts back in time to make arse out of wallace.

5.) 05 Mar 2017 19:18:06
celtic v sevco semi final, easy tie.



05 Feb 2017 17:03:18
Ed, what did you make of BR comments on LG after the game? I hope this is not a serious affair, would hate to see LG fall away, for his own well being and Celtics.


{Ed007's Note - LG seems to be falling into old habits and is obviously not applying himself in training. The thing is, RD was saying the exact same things last year about the mentality of Scottish players.
Since day one when Rodgers invited Scott Brown down to his home for dinner he told him what he expected from his players and the need to be a 24 hour athlete to be the best you can and the importance of nutrition and eating right - all the changes RD made are still in place and some have been improved under Rodgers. Rodgers - like most modern managers - is more focused on the importance of sports science etc than RD was.

'Leigh’s a very important part of what I’m looking to do, and will continue to be. He’s a brilliant striker but he has to be fit and available, and to be fit you have to look after every part of your life. This is not slight on his enthusiasm. He’s a great boy and we have a great relationship.
What I answered, I answered when asked the question of him going forward, and it’s very simple. He needs to develop that mentality. This is his life as a professional player. You can’t just settle for what you’ve got. Be the very best you can be. Nutrition in modern sport is very important.
He’s clearly a talent. But if we’re going to be a Champions League club consistently then you need a Champions League mindset. Otherwise you’ll be playing somewhere else and that goes for anybody.'

If RD had said that he would have been crucified. A striker who scored 40 goals for us last season isn't living the lifestyle the Club demands, he either shapes up or ships out. And remember when Rodgers was asked about LG scoring 40 goals last season his answer was 'I wasn't at Celtic last year'.
Or should we get rid of Rodgers for talking all this rubbish about nutrition etc?
And I'm absolutely delighted that Rodgers is talking us up as a CL club, finally we're starting to act like a big club.}

1.) 05 Feb 2017 19:04:05
ED007.Good to hear yer on BR's side now. after all of your negative comments re him in the past. Him and his 'bit of fluff' and all that.

{Ed007's Note - I don't remember being negative, I remember having some reservations after spending 2 years laughing while reading the Liverpool fans discuss his numerous mistakes and his downright bizarre decisions.
Is it negative to say I think he's made mistakes in the last 2 games by not starting with a recognised striker on the pitch, is it negative to question why Rodgers decided to play, Calvin Miller, a player voted one of the best in the world playing as a forward at LB?.}

2.) 05 Feb 2017 19:59:35
Edd07 you make mistakes like everyone, I do recall your views when BR was appointed.

{Ed007's Note - So having a valid opinion and not wetting my panties like some daft wee lassie over Rodgers appointment was me making a mistake? I hardly think so.
So go and dig out all these negative posts I made, it's easy enough to do.
Unlike a lot on here I'll back whoever the Celtic manager is even if I have reservations about them, the new manager just so happened to have given me two years of hilarity as he blundered his was through Liverpool, the way he behaved and how nothing was ever his fault.


And there's plenty more reports of his crazy decisions like the team he sent out to face Madrid in the CL.
Just because someone becomes Celtic manager doesn't erase history and their mistakes. Liverpool fans have a far different opinion on Rodgers than Celtic have, you should ask some of them - ask Ed001 - or doesn't that fit your perfect wee vision of him?}

3.) 05 Feb 2017 20:02:03
Ed007 do you ever think Miller will get a crack up front? I'd love to see him get a chance up top if he was so highly rated there in the past.

{Ed007's Note - Probably not - he'll probably become what's known in Liverpool as being 'Brendaned'.}

4.) 05 Feb 2017 21:00:01
No one ever disputed the importance of nutrition, in fact that was about the only string to Ronnies bow that he was any good at, in fact am sure some of us even called him a nutritionist, with his crazy team selections, even crazier tactics and formations, and mad substitutions, not to mention his post match interviews, he certainly was'nt a football manager.

{Ed007's Note - And yet without him we'd only be sitting on 97 trophies and 3 leagues in a row. Maybe we just shouldn't count the trophies he won. I wonder what Kieran Tierney and Leigh Griffiths thought about RD as a manager, even Tom Rogic who had never been fitter and played 39 games last season.
Wouldn't you class Celtic playing 4-3-3 at home without a recognised striker on the park a crazy team selection? RD got pelters for playing one up front - Rodgers does every match and there's not a peep about it, he then goes one better and plays with none, TWICE!!, and nobody seems to bother.}

5.) 05 Feb 2017 21:29:51
Brendan got Liverpool closer to the title than any other manager has done for years. I will be forever thankful we got him and not that idiot Moyes!

{Ed007's Note - And what a laugh that was. As they say, second is just the first loser.}

6.) 05 Feb 2017 21:56:21
What was funny about it?

{Ed007's Note -

7.) 05 Feb 2017 22:08:55
Bit of a difference in how the team are playing from last season compared to last.

8.) 05 Feb 2017 22:45:18
I think we are seeing a very different man now in BR.

He was a bit of an arse at Liverpool and that stupid ch5 documentary was a horses arse of an idea - as it made him look like a horses ares.

I think since then he is humbler - and learned a lesson - and now at a team like celtic he is rebuilding his reputation as man manager and a good tactician.

I always want the best for celtic and when he was appointed I was disappointed. I want someone in high demand at the top of their game - but we ain't going to get PG or JM (would you really want them) . I think now - he is the best we could get in the current set up and with his point to prove, we are a good fit for him too.

{Ed007's Note - He certainly looks to have learnt a lot and comes across a bit more humble for want of a better word - and he can work the media up here in a way they've never came across.
The Channel 5 documentary was another high profile cock up with hilarious consequences.}

9.) 05 Feb 2017 22:47:46
The right Edd, Brendan told him to slip!

{Ed007's Note - But it was just sssoooo funny.

10.) 06 Feb 2017 07:20:03
Brendan has the potential to be the best Celtic manager since Jock Stein. If the board back him property then I believe he can get us competing properly in the champions league.

11.) 06 Feb 2017 08:02:34
I don't see the point in bringing up the past . We should only judge Rodgers on what he Does here. If he could screwed up at Liverpool too bad . he hasn't screwed up here yet. Another point about this unbeaten season. I would rather bring the young bhoys through than go unbeaten.

12.) 06 Feb 2017 09:39:28
I'm one of the guilty 1s that called Ronnie D a nutritionist. It seems BR has that mentality also but has a few more strings to his bow.

13.) 06 Feb 2017 11:35:36
What's even funnier is the state Klopps got them in they are terrible, but agree ed the ch5 doc was horrendous.



25 Jan 2017 21:46:22
Btw,3 points all the way, but Not good enough display, really rubbish, should have seen these by 4 / 5


1.) 26 Jan 2017 10:09:35
professional performance against a decent side

ok we had a break so not tired but not up to full speed yet either.

and BR tinkered with the team

on another night Sinclair, Armstrong and MD/ LG would have scored too and 3/4 - 1 would have been a more accurate score.



02 Jan 2017 15:07:22
Where has that Skinnybhoy gone? I thought he would have been flooding us with rumors by now, Day 2 and all quiet.


1.) 02 Jan 2017 22:59:33
I'm waiting for Hoops88 to make an appearance with his reliable sources.

2.) 02 Jan 2017 18:08:04
Maybe Ed007 could give us any info he might have on new signings. Do you still expect James McCarthy to sign Ed?

{Ed007's Note - I never said I expected McCarthy to sign.}

3.) 03 Jan 2017 09:34:01
missing the transfer mince maself lads, so im going to start one, i heard thru a reliable source ( guy that sells two fur a pound socks in paisley) that we are on the verge of signing mark wright from towie as cover for left back, although were getting him on a free it severely depletes our budget as it means we have to double the intake of fake tan and teeth whitener, were also looking at steve evans as fitness coach and iain dowie as the face of celtic.

4.) 03 Jan 2017 11:21:31
Love the term "transfer mince" lol! Been waiting for a "reliable source" who drinks with Yaya Toure's uncle's mate to tell us he's up for a medical and it's a done deal!

5.) 03 Jan 2017 00:00:53
Hoops88 was always good for info.

Onyekuru is maybe not coming, I had a couple of pints with a current epl players father on Sunday who told me that Onekuru is in constant touch with Kevin Miralles at Everton, and that he will be signing for them for 4million with à one million tax free signing on fee or him. James mc Carthy is still on the radar, he has no future at Everton and has told them he will not go to clubs like stoke, Bournemouth, etc, etc, and to sort out something better, he also told me that maybe we will sign a young right winger from Liverpool on loan, english 20 yr old. Just a chat over a couple of pints but you never know.

Kev83 of course not, but what I am saying is that BR would have targets that he would have sounded out the connections before CL qualification, and based on income generated from that, you could reasonably expect that deals would be done.

Such a pity that BR doesn't really have complete faith in LG, but as one of LG defenders on here when he first came, and impressing on doubters here how much he knuckled down and improved, I can still see that BR will look even with Dembelle for another CL striker. I just hope that both of them for whatever reasons do not fly the coup this summer.

Tim, I got 2 tips from a friend of mine who is over there and has a small interest in a couple of horses, non of them good enough to run at Cheltenham.
The first was Willoughby court, it won yesterday at 14/ 1.I was out and did not get the message until too late. The other one is Rockgone, running in the 4 10,it is 28/ 1,so I am going to do a mugs ew double with your Rocklander, and if it comes in will buy you a pint somewhere in the Bahamas next week.
