One year contract extension for Sinky. Hope he celebrates it with a brace at the sheep on Saturday.

Once a Bhoy

1.) 02 May 2019 11:30:48
Delighted to hear this. Yes, he's never scaled the heady heights of his first season, but Sinky's always good for a goal and he gets us, and knows what's required.

2.) 02 May 2019 12:57:29
Another back heel against the sheep will do.

3.) 02 May 2019 14:22:30
I think it's an extension to sell him in the summer to get some money back.

4.) 02 May 2019 17:23:00
Does that mean he's contracted for the next 2 seasons? I thought he signed a 4yr deal when he joined.

5.) 03 May 2019 00:08:17
Agree Tony. Apparently Middlesborough are sniffing about. Wouldn't be surprised if Rodgers took him to Leicester as well.

6.) 03 May 2019 09:54:47
Don't think Rodgers will be taking him. He will be shopping in a much higher market I would think.

7.) 03 May 2019 13:42:36
I think Rodgers will talk about shopping in Saville Row, he will also drop into the second -hand or used shops, just like he did at Celtic . He was so pleased with his shopping, in the bargain basin in January 2018, he went public on National TV to praise himself and thank the Celtic Board .
However, Brendan's shopping spree that January was a complete disaster . I just hope Leicestr allows Brendan free rein to buy players this summer and the chances will be that Leicester will be looking for a manager who can do a job, rather than BR who talks a good game.

8.) 03 May 2019 18:59:51
Wow here we go again so much negativity around what I think is a great piece of business. Jesus guys we take up a one year extension on a guy who in my opinion has performed when ask to and has consistently proven the doubters wrong and his stats don't lie. Please just be pleased for once instead of putting a negative spin on everything the club do.

Hail, Hail we are the celtic family

The Happy Turnkey.

{Ed007's Note - Now there's a stranger! Nice to hear from you mate 👍

Thanks Ed im ok hope you are well too. Had a lot of major family stuff going on over last few months but i've been on when I can.

{Ed007's Note - I'm good, just dodging (hopping) along. Hopefully everything's OK with you now and everyone's well.}

Is there any news on KT?
Been bombarded all week with the Andy Murray hip injury situation and I really hope KT doesn't have a similar problem now or in the future.

Watching the highlights again this morning and how good does it make you feel to see the team in this form? Great performances all over the pitch and superb goals.
There were a few candidates for MOM, but I was delighted in particular for Izzaguire, who linked up well so with Sinclair and had a great game.
Obviously he's keeping KT's place warm, but it's a shame we can't utilize his talent more often?

Hayes and Gamboa were recalled at Fir Park and took time to settle, but Izzy looked like he'd never been away. Was thinking maybe we could ask KT to do a 'Danny McGrain' and we could see both in the same team, but I can't see it.

Once a Bhoy

1.) 10 Dec 2018 11:03:47
Totally agree, Izzy was outstanding and was one of the best performers on Saturday.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 12:06:27
I'm sure we'll see more of Izzy over Christmas would like Tierney rested before Sevco game so he's firing. He needs the odd game off so he doesn't burn out and Izzy is more than capable domestically.



18 Feb 2018 13:21:46
Any news on Armstrong, Roberts and Griffiths? It's been a long, long time since we saw wee Paddy in particular and the three of them have missed a lot of football this season and must be bursting to get involved in the run-in.

Brilliant news about Turnbull.
Well done PL and Celtic.

Well done Celtic.
Hopefully its the first of many 👍.

2.) 12 Jun 2019 19:08:43
I bet pistol Pete has got him for under 3 million.

3.) 12 Jun 2019 19:19:39
Great news. I am sure your are right kev.

4.) 12 Jun 2019 19:34:18
If he turns out as good as previous buys from Motherwell, Dixie Deans, Joe McBride, Andy Walker, Phil O’Donnell (RIP) i’ll be happy.

5.) 12 Jun 2019 19:36:37
BBC are claiming it's a fee of £3m plus add one.

6.) 12 Jun 2019 19:46:10
Oldkilly you forgot wee Skippy McDonald.

7.) 12 Jun 2019 20:33:26
As long as his hamstrings aren’t as tight as stephen Pearson’s.

8.) 12 Jun 2019 21:57:24
That bhoy would have ended up a legend if he could have stayed fit.

9.) 12 Jun 2019 23:33:56
Apologies Kev it’s my age.

10.) 13 Jun 2019 05:50:03
Did we not sign Brian McClair from Well too?
Was my favourite player growing up.

Any idea if Weah and Burke had any chance of extended loans - or is that it put to bed?

Once a Bhoy

1.) 09 Jun 2019 12:39:34
Hopefully put to bed as don’t come back.

2.) 09 Jun 2019 15:19:25
Burke is one of worst players I've seen play for celtic in recent years. Thank God it was only a loan.

Weah done alright for us, but I think there is more to story as to why he hardly featured after Lennon took over and his early loan termination.

3.) 09 Jun 2019 15:38:29
Both aren’t good enough to be first team regulars it’s as simple as that! Like Phil i never rated Burke and never have! Why the big fuss has been made about this boy I’ll never know honestly!

4.) 09 Jun 2019 15:55:25
Burke did score some important goals and played most of his time here out of position remember guys, so I think you are being quite harsh there.
That being said I think we are well enough covered in his natural position and money would be better spent else where.

5.) 09 Jun 2019 18:04:52
When Burke played in position he was actually worse.

6.) 09 Jun 2019 19:50:19
I agree phil, no way is he worth the money quoted.

7.) 09 Jun 2019 20:59:19
Your right Stephbhoy. He is a prime example of how crazy the transfer market is down south.



01 Jun 2019 20:52:09
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - You're havin a laugh. No real champions on show here so far. Penalty decision after 25 secs, was highlight of the half.

Once a Bhoy

1.) 01 Jun 2019 22:49:14
You missed the streaker, OAB? Shame about the second half, right enough.

2.) 03 Jun 2019 00:15:19
Europa league has more champions in it than the so called champions league. Its should be called the skys money clubs cup.

3.) 03 Jun 2019 00:15:18
cavalcanti - streaker? naw just a burd advertising. Real streakers got their full kit off.
(remember erica row and the guy getting escorted off with the bobby covering his boaby with helmet? )



19 May 2019 17:47:05
looking at our victorious team enjoying the rewards for all their effort, blood, sweat and injuries.
It's easy to spot the genuinely happy Celts as well the few who's hearts are not really in the club.
I also see Moussa wandering about as well; - gatecrasher ha ha - and then there's the new improved Dembele with all of his family clearly loving the atmosphere and the occassion of his proud debut.

Very good performance from the younger players today and a good win to end the campaign.
Don't get sucked into this 'poor performance yet again' garbage that SLY and 'the rest' are so quick to brainwash us with every feckin week. The team only lost one domestic game in 2019 and had the title won by 9 points before the no-show last week, where they were that pumped-up and hyped that they lost their next game - not for the first time if you check.

It's one of the best periods in our history and don't let anyone try to devalue, minimize or trivialize these players or their achievements just because they can't stomach our success.
No team on earth can play that amount of games (in almost a whole calendar year of competitive matches) - playing champagne football every week. Especially with so many injuries and changing manager 3/ 4 way through a season and still contest a treble treble.

Once a Bhoy

1.) 19 May 2019 18:00:59
Moussa Dembele has an absolute cheek stoating about the pitch joining in celebrations! Shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the place! He left us in the lurch on the last day of the transfer window and couldn’t get out the place Kwik enough! Quite convenient he blames Rodgers after he pissed off aswell! 2 peas in a pod and as bad as each other if u ask me!

2.) 19 May 2019 18:09:26
Saw him in a box, didn't realise he was on the pitch. Is that true?

3.) 19 May 2019 18:27:32
Happy with that once a bhoy.

4.) 19 May 2019 18:39:49
He was down pitch side getting interviewed after the game HT! A flame thrower couldn’t mark this cants neck!

5.) 19 May 2019 19:05:12
He will be picking up his medal.

6.) 19 May 2019 20:10:11
Great post OAB. Every fan on here should pay heed to his words. We’re witnessing something never seen before and unlikely to ever be seen again. Enjoy it, celebrate and pay tribute to the team, the manager, back room staff, Pedro, the board, everyone connected with the club. Ignore the noise coming out the media and internet trolls. Some people would have us believe Glasgow was blue last week. It certainly wasn’t where I was. I was in Grace’s and I was talking to a Man Utd fan. He said if this is what it’s like after losing a game, it must be mental when yous win. I told him it makes no difference, we don’t care if we win, lose or draw. Next week, Glasgow really will be green and white and I’ve a funny feeling this is going to be one of those special moments in our history. Savour it and don’t let anyone spoil it for you.



18 May 2019 14:15:03
There's been lots of speculation about Griff's comeback/ career and unfortunately it looks unlikely he will feature at all? Obviously we really could have done with some form of striker/ poacher in games and young Aitchieson didn't seem fancied but what's the story with Bayo?
I remember reading he was injured -after taking an eternity to get near any sort of fitness to begin with. Any update?

Once a Bhoy

1.) 18 May 2019 14:40:40
I thought aitchieson would of been more involved in the match day squads under rodgers. Did something happen? Or has he just not progressed as much as everybody though he would?

2.) 18 May 2019 14:49:35
Was he not on loan.

3.) 18 May 2019 14:56:00
I think him and Edouard up front together would help both progress quicker and can learn from each others games as heard Bayo does very little outside the box but is a physical presence in it. And Edouard could learn the natural number 9 movements and be more of a target man too.

4.) 18 May 2019 15:17:55
I honestly don't understand why Edouard doesn't play as a left winger. The vast majority of his contribution of scoring and assists comes from the left and can take on men easily enough from what I've seen. Unless its the question of who plays upfront because of the lack of strikers but then yet again I honestly don't think Edouard is a central striker. I think Edouard would be better in Sinclair's position and wouldn't be surprised if Sinclair had more success in the cf role.

I trust the club to do the right thing for all concerned.

Not the appointment most fans hoped for and certainly not (if it happens) one that will raise the roof and deflate opponents like what happened on May 20th 2016. who'd have bet on a Paira Gingies?

It's been like this for a wee while now; knowing well in advance what positions we are struggling in, but failing to replace or recruit with the quality needed/ expected.
Instead we have stockpiled guys like Compper, Gamboa, Hendry, Izzy and several midfield players that can't be trusted week in week out, or even in some cases do a job as cover?
This contributes to our problems as we are wasting money while we have such a bloated squad and it's obvious we need to offload.
It was well documented that the previous manager had some friction with PL regarding transfers etc and NL could have the same dilemma?

We have a superb business model, very healthy bank balance, state of the art facilities, very successful team setting domestic records. However, when it comes to recruitment, transfer deals and building from a position of strength - we are still in the last century.

Some of us have been asking that for years. Too much of our business is 'leaked' or commented on before, during and after, while other clubs seem quicker and more efficient to the 'punch'.
I am sure we will sign some players as-and-when, but we do seem to lack that bit of cut and thrust in transfer deals?

Very concerned about this sudden and persistent speculation.
Here we have a bhoy who loves the club and has always appeared very happy to be here - talked of as the next captain and even watches the games with the fans when injured.
The main worry I had over KT last season was the extent of his injury, the operation date and the recuperation period?
Suddenly, we seem to be touting him all over the continent.
Is it the change of manager that has prompted KT to look elsewhere or is it yet again the Board wanting to make the mandatory big-sale to compensate/ insure against possible lack of CL revenue?
This trend of depleting the quality of the team before a ball is kicked - literally, is not only foolish and unsettling, but sends out very negative messages to supporters and opponents alike.
I appreciate we are a selling club, but there is a time to sell and a time to strengthen - and we get it wrong far too often.

The pressure/ panic always mounts because of these CL qualifiers and the failed transfer bid for Turnbull has added to the pressure.
It's still very early in the 'window' and I do believe we are trying to get players in the door at this very minute.
However, the squad we have at present including a fully fit Griffiths (on their best form) are very capable of getting past the first round if it comes to that.
