Aidan Nesbitt to Mk Dons. Looks like a permanent deal.




29 Jan 2017 16:08:38
Bojan away to Mainz in Germany on loan. Another one scored off.




07 Aug 2016 23:08:55
Just read the news a few people have been dreading. BR telling James Forrest he does have a future at Celtic and it is now up to his agent and the club to sort out a new contract for him.


1.) 08 Aug 2016 06:35:12
He said it on live TV and so why people are ticking unbelievable is beyond me.

2.) 08 Aug 2016 11:06:46
Probably because they don't it to be true.

3.) 08 Aug 2016 12:04:34
The disagree button on here is a pile of mince. Reckon some people just do it automatically (cue the cunny funts)

4.) 08 Aug 2016 12:22:08
Has he not played well recently?

Let's see how he performs this season under BR as he may finally be a player worth keeping.

5.) 08 Aug 2016 13:05:41
Worth keeping imo played well in games this season scored yesterday and played 90 mins br knows who he needs and who he doesn't.

6.) 08 Aug 2016 14:53:29
I have been impressed by Forrest in the last few games but his consistency is the problem, if BR can get that from him I don't see any reason why we shouldn't give him a contract.

7.) 08 Aug 2016 15:17:55
Even if its just to sell him at the end of season rather than loose him in December for free.

8.) 08 Aug 2016 15:52:16
For rest has been putting on a crazy effort since the season started. I watched him bust a gut against Astana tracking back. This is the absolute minimum BR is requiring. It works too. For rest will need to consistently beat his man and find the cross as the end product. Personally I think he Wi lose interest or pick up an injury. From BRs point of view he came and was faced with these Euro qualifiers. What could he do but get them all on side till we get through this and then I am sure the new faces will arrive and certain people will go. He has done brilliantly so far man management wise.

9.) 08 Aug 2016 17:16:28
Back in the day I was a huge Forrest fan, if he can find form, sign him up.

10.) 08 Aug 2016 19:55:20
He played well yesterday to be fsir to him but he's been living off that Karagandy goal for 3 seasons now and you could count the number of times he's played well since on one hand. It reeks of playing for a new deal before he sinks back into injury and inconsistency.

11.) 09 Aug 2016 16:27:56
I think forrest is worth another season and unfortunately for that he requires a contract. I've been suprised by his effort under br although still think he drifts in and out of games.
It's a clean slate for me nobody was exactly pushing the boundaries under Rd so give everyone a shot.

Oh except efe, boyata and CG 😁.



11 Jan 2016 18:00:00
Rogic to Leeds starting to appear on a few sites. Talking about £1 million. Would you take that for him? Starting to show his worth but how far away is his next injury?


1.) 11 Jan 2016 18:15:55
I'd be absolutely fuming if we sold him for that I think this bhoy can be something special!

2.) 11 Jan 2016 18:39:43
No chance, If the board sell him for that then they all need sacked.

3.) 11 Jan 2016 18:45:02
I would hope they would at least hold out for more. He's still young £1m is an insult if we was buying Rogic from Leeds they'd want about £4-5m for him!

4.) 11 Jan 2016 19:52:43
He's really come on this year. Wouldn't be chuffed if that happened.

5.) 11 Jan 2016 20:01:31
It's not even his next injury, he's only had a couple of good games in the SPL, and as usual fans are raving about him! He was poor in Europe and cost us a school boy goal! He's also only got just over a year on his contract and we don't know what he's asking for! It's the same as Scott Allan, he's done nothing except having 1 good season for Hibs! I'd prefer Rogic to GMS, but I'd prefer Mane to Rogic! We also have Christie who is a left footed no 10 type! We need quality down the spine! Centre half, holding midfield, and a real no 9 to play with/ compete with Griffiths! Commons has also been awful this year, and I'd happily let him leave!

6.) 11 Jan 2016 20:08:23
Sorry I meant to say £1.5/ £2 million would probably be fair for Rogic! I'd prefer more, and I'd be happy if he stayed but none of our players are that good that they're unsaleable! I'd take £10 million for Biton in a heartbeat, he's good but doesn't put himself about enough, dominate enough, especially being 6'5". Rogic is also a little like that, for someone at 6'2" he is also a little lightweight. I've said it before, this is the softest Celtic team I have seen in 30 years!

7.) 11 Jan 2016 20:40:50
Just to justify that - I don't mean I'm happy for us to sell our best players, only that they should be truly judged in Europe, not the SPL! Also selling players isn't the problem, the problem is we don't replace them with quality! We replace them with more projects, putting us back 2 years or whatever! I have to say though that the players we have been linked with this window sound better! I'd be happy with Mane, the Croation midfielder, a striker and an aggressive centre half! Mocinic and Mane are young but they are pretty experienced!

8.) 11 Jan 2016 22:16:16
I wouldn't sell him for as little as that but I think with the midfielders we already have at the club and being linked with more we should at least consider offers for ANY of the guys we already have at the club.

9.) 12 Jan 2016 08:00:38
Couldn't care how much he goes for. Chances are he won't be replaced.

10.) 12 Jan 2016 16:28:01
I wouldn't want to see him leave, especially for £1m. He's been one of the only positives about this season so far, keeping free of injury and getting a few goals. If he keeps it up he'll reach double figures from midfield. Stefan Johansen on the other hand hasn't kicked his arse all season, his first good game was Sunday. I'd genuinely have Rogic (or Armstrong) instead of him until he gives himself a massive shake.

11.) 12 Jan 2016 16:48:57
If he continues the way he has been progressing then we will have a very stable squad player for us. Still a few parts of is game are missing but 1m? If true leeds can get to #.

12.) 12 Jan 2016 18:05:20
Does it matter how much we get for a player if it is not going to be reinvested on a like for like manner? Same applies to CL. If money is not going to be reinvested, then monetary values mean nothing.

13.) 12 Jan 2016 22:08:38

We are never going to be able to replace a Forster with another England international keeper or a VVD with a Dutch international centre-back probably because Dundee United don't have either!!

Seriously though we do have to start investing in key positions. Why are we being linked with more midfielders when we all know we are weak in every position but that?



08 Jan 2015 21:34:37
On Celtic rumours Now and that we are looking at ex-Hibs striker Eoin Doyle. Hope not.


1.) 08 Jan 2015 22:32:01
I hope not think this is the worst target we have been linked with in a long time I have no idea what deila is thinking am not looking forward to the rest of this month. If like Armstrong and Gudetti on a permenent deal and possibly a CB I'd be happy and am telling you's all now we will lose out on GMS because they will penny pinch they could have him if they wanted in celtics defence united out of order wanting 2million for someone who's contract is up in the summer.

2.) Sam,
I think you are talking pish regarding the £2million fee. GMS will be sold if anyone offers £0.5million in my opinion as never mind Dundee Utd Celtic would sell any player in January for£0.5 million if they were out of contract in the summer for free unless they knew there was still a chance of keeping them on ie Kris Commons do you think for one minute Celtic would not sell Commons if they thought they had a chance of him staying? I think not. Now I am a Celtic supporter the same as most people on here but at the end of the day and sadly so it is now a business and because of that the hopes and dreams of all Celtic supporters is now secondary to the business model.
Hail Hail Celtic 'til I die.

3.) Did Celtic not sign Gary Hooper who had scored less goals than Eoin Doyle has scored in the same division?
Now I know it didn't work out for him at Hibs but he played as a lone striker a lot of the time in a pish poor Hibs team so don't be so quick to condemn him. I do however think Celtic should be looking at players of a much higher profile than Doyle to appease the fans and to convince them that the club has indeed got some f$%k!~g ambition instead of being a cash cow for the effing money grabbing shareholders who are not interested in Celtic for the right reasons.
Perhaps the money grabbing bar stewards want to look into the history of the club and see why it was formed in the first place.
Rant Over. and OVER.

4.) Eoin Doyle could be a good signing for us, I think he is a late developer and could score a lot of goals for us .
If Celtic want GMS, they will get him for

5.) Doyle is in league 1 hooper was in the championship and got relegated when we signed him

6.) 09 Jan 2015 21:39:12
Difference being gunnie Doyle has been tested in spfl and failed, griffths played for same club and was a success and still struggles to get a game, is Doyle going to be no.1 striker at £1.5 that's a dear sub, will he play scepovic and Doyle together and completely change formation? I have deliberately left guidetti out as doesn't look like he will be here come summer

Celtic Player Sightings page entitled, My, my how the tables have turned




27 Oct 2017 19:52:49

Tried to share a photo of the final 1993-94 League table as found it funny when looking at the current table that Aberdeen and Motherwell split Celtic (4th) and Rangers.

Love how the table has turned with us top and Sevco 4th, split by Aberdeen and Motherwell. Also funny that Hibs were 5th and Hearts 7th in both tables.

Reason for the post was that this was never a problem in 1994 but us being so far ahead of the rest seems to be an issue now.


1.) 27 Oct 2017 21:03:16
Exactly mate did you hear that horses arse souness spouting that Scottish football is dead with a rangers in it they said that when the original rangers died from cheating does he want this new one to go down the same route.

2.) 27 Oct 2017 21:06:27
I was just talking about the same thing the other day, no one seemed to mind while they were going out spending money they couldn’t afford on English and Dutch internationals while we were signing players like muggleton and vidar riseth to compete . There was no talk of tainted titles then or didn’t count as there was no challenge .

3.) 27 Oct 2017 21:22:37
Exactly where was the headlines back then saying "scottish football need a strong celtic team"

4.) 27 Oct 2017 21:47:49
My earliest memories are of Celtic finishing third or fourth. And bhoy does it taste sweet now.

I can't say I remember the media's or society's assessment of it all, but like the posters above have said, I'm assured by family and friends that there was not the begrudgement there is right now.

All I seem to see and hear from the Klan and the 'pundits' (some of which by the way had to endure being a Celtic player during Rangers' period of domination through doping) is that our success is somehow down to a lack of competition.

Worse yet, it's twisted in a way that, the other teams being shit, is somehow OUR fault.

GIRFUY (and get used to it too)

5.) 27 Oct 2017 22:27:48
I’d love for our league to be much more competitive because it would drive us to be even better but you get these pundits who’d happily see us nosedive into similar mediocrity as the rest in the name of “competition”. It’s up to the rest to drag themselves to our level, not the other way round.

6.) 28 Oct 2017 01:39:04
They NEVERN will kev. The spl missed the boat with sponsorship and TV deals and made some howlers in the process. It's the cl money, scouting lucky finds, fan base and tight admin that have elevated us to the position we are in. We all know we should of spent more this summer covering positions and could of, should of and didnt. Take that down a level for the teams in the top six bar rangers and they can't build teams to compete. Give Aberdeen 8m or hibs, they won't win the title but they would narrow the point gap at the end of the season. As long as we keep doing the same things consistently we will be the only show in town.
Gutted 😉.

7.) 28 Oct 2017 02:17:23
We are in a position now where we would be outraged if kt and the moose went for 15m each. Look at the top 6 spl clubs. How far would that money go? 2 players v multiple squads. Those pundits know that, we know that. Let them have column space or social media hits. I honestly don't know when we will have a competitive league again unless a big investor pisses a champ man dream down the plughole.



24 Aug 2017 20:19:38
Great draw but just heard Barcelona are buying Dembele for £110 million. Not our Dembele but the guy who managed 6 goals in 32 games for Dortmund. Absolute silly money.


1.) 24 Aug 2017 20:56:43
Aye but how miny de set up?

2.) 24 Aug 2017 22:19:54
I wouldn't be playing £110 million to have a guy setting up goals. Hell if they are willing to pay that for someone to assist a few goals they are welcome to buy Johnny Hayes from us. 11 goals and 24 assists in 44 games last season.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 23:30:15
Tongue in cheek Niall, as if setting up goals justifies a price like that! . Hail Hail.

What I really love about the team this season is that we have goal threats everywhere. Last season if Griffiths didn't score we had no one else stepping up (except the last game of the season, 7 goals and 7 different scorers vs Motherwell when Griff was out) .

In the last 6 games we have had McGregor, Sinclair, Lustig, Boyata, Griffiths, Forrest, Tierney, Roberts and Armstrong all scoring, some more than once.

I agreed with your post but we shouldn't just be thankful about what we have. We need to build from a position of strength.

It is great we kept the boys you mentioned and I am happy with Roberts and Ntcham but on the negative side we are weaker at the back than we were last season when we had Kolo and Emilio in reserve if needed. I also feel Hayes wasn't needed, have you ever heard of a senior player signing and 5 weeks later being linked with a loan out? Benyu? We just have to wait and see with him but he is rough around the edges and won't see much action this season.

Do you think we should be concerned by the over-inflated prices? With Britain leaving the EU this is likely to make transferring overseas players harder for us and if average players like Evans, AOC, Barkley are going for over 30 million we are going to be on the look out for pre-contracts for guys from Accrington Stanley!


{Ed007's Note - Nobody knows what'll happen under Brexit yet mate but I imagine it will be harder to get players in for every team in the UK because of the work permit system.}

Oxlade-Chamberlain the one that kills football for me. £35 million for him? He is ok but I would have Roberts, Sinclair and Rogic over him every day of the week. Hell I would even take the Sevco wingers and Dorrans over him too. actually that is too far! 😂.

Just saw the video and even in MacLean was one of our players I would struggle to defend him.

Very clever refereeing as no retrospective action can be taken on the player but hard to see Collum coming out of this unscathed.
