Dani Alves released from PSG and we need a right back.


1.) 23 Jun 2019 11:27:27
Great Player but do we really need a 36 year old?

2.) 23 Jun 2019 11:31:20
He'd be quality but so will his wage.

3.) 23 Jun 2019 12:12:45
He is still a quality player but I’d expect his wage to be too high.

4.) 23 Jun 2019 12:15:23
You are having a laugh right? The guy get paid 100+k a week.

5.) 23 Jun 2019 12:21:55
Still Brazil’s first choice. No chance of coming here. China or MLS bound probably.

6.) 23 Jun 2019 13:36:22
Course I'm having a laugh. We're more likely to try get Danny Higginbotham out of retirement.

7.) 23 Jun 2019 16:44:01
He won't be coming to us, but I watched Brazil v Peru last night on Eir Sport and he was world class never mind his age,

8.) 23 Jun 2019 20:57:44
Dan Alves already has a complete set of League and Cup medals from Spain, Italy and France, he might want a Scottish set. There would be no harm in asking him. It's not as if we couldn't afford him for a year.



29 May 2019 20:08:38
Hearing lustigs moved out his house. Maybe we will sign a right back after all.


1.) 29 May 2019 20:38:43
If that's true he has been a great servant to our great club and I wish him and all his family all the best in the future.

2.) 29 May 2019 21:52:26
A great servant but unfortunately his time is up with us, Father Time has caught up with him a bit. I don’t want it to end up like Izzy where his career was slowing down and you start remembering more of his worse performances than his good ones.

3.) 29 May 2019 21:58:09
We should be signing a RB regardless. He'd be decent back up.

4.) 29 May 2019 22:34:56
O’Donnell of Kilmarnock deal supposed to be done.

{Ed007's Note - Toljan will be offered back to Celtic but it doen't look like we're too keen. Dortmund want to sell but they think he may be tough to get much of a fee for.}

5.) 29 May 2019 22:56:49
I think Lustig deserves a big thanks and I agree with most here in saying I don't think he would justify the wage next season.

Toljan didn't do it for me. With s good pre-season maybe there is a player there but I wouldn't splurge half the budget on him. There must be better out there who want to come to Celtic.

O'Donnell would be a good back up by the way, but can't see him starring in the Champions League.

6.) 29 May 2019 22:57:53
I’d love to hear the negotiation between them and Pedro for Toljan 😂😂😂😂.

7.) 29 May 2019 23:53:02
Toljan was awful. Don't recall a game where he impressed.

8.) 30 May 2019 00:14:33
Lustig was a bit teary at the final whistle in Saturday so there could be something in this rumour.

9.) 30 May 2019 09:20:13
Toljan has been surprisingly poor. Was expecting much better from a guy on Dortmund’s books. We were all moaning as well that we only signed him on loan - lucky escape.

O’Donnell is a decent defender and bombs forward well - bit of an uninspiring signing though.

Would hope someone else would be bought to compete with him. Gumny has been mentioned. Castagne defintely won’t be happening - he’s been in great form since we were linked with him in January and Atalanta going to be in the CL next season.

Unfortunately I don’t think Ralston is ever going to cut it.

10.) 30 May 2019 10:21:06
Ralston didn't look to clever recently but has been injured for a while so maybe give one more year but dynamic full backs is the modern way pity atalanta qualified for champ' league because he looked a player, so if we where prepared to spend on him surely there must be another full back of similar talent for that sort of dough, O'Donnell looks a decent player but not on the level of the boy castagne but squad player definetly and maybe loan Ralston out for 1/ 2 season and see what happens, also think goalkeeper position needs looked at hopefully Gordon out the door and another keeper preferably with a bit more presence than Bain who has done well, also would love to get benkovic back.

11.) 30 May 2019 12:49:32
Like has been said lustig has been a fantastic servant for the club and it's the right time for him to move on. He has come good the second half of the season but the legs are definitely getting slower. Please God Toljan stays where he is in Germany. Been a big disappointment. Have to say would like to see O'Donnell from killie and hope it's true a fee have been agreed. Had a good season and nothing fancy but very solid defended which is what we need at right back. In any game l saw him against us he had a good game.

12.) 30 May 2019 13:00:14
Would take Gumny and wouldn't cost us a fortune neither would O'Donnell. Could loan Ralston or offer him as part exchange.

13.) 30 May 2019 15:56:01
Toljan was fine when he first came in. He had a decent few games in Jan and Feb. Seemed to go off the boil when Rodgers left and then Lenny never picked him so when he did come back in he was off the pace. With a full pre-season he might still be worth a shout, just depends on what Dortmund want for him. if its a ridiculous amount then I expect PL will tell them where to go.

14.) 30 May 2019 16:50:21
I'd take O'Donnell before Toljan any day of the week, Toljan was massive disappointment for me. O'Donnell while not the most sexy name around Haha would be solid and dependable in my opinion.

15.) 30 May 2019 20:07:10
Come on lads toljan wansnt given enough time with us and much better player than lustig, I love lustig but he is shocking but good heart for Celtic he has.

16.) 31 May 2019 00:26:06
If toljan was any good I'm pretty sure lenny would have seen that in training every day and played him more but he did look shaky every time he played.
We should be looking at a good quality right back and getting a deal done for odonnell as back up, possibly Ralston heading the other way on loan for a season.

17.) 31 May 2019 00:54:56
Gary toljan didn't show lustig up which I would expect from someone in his price bracket and age group to do. Decent player but not the answer in my eyes.

18.) 03 Jun 2019 09:05:13
Neither Tolijan nor Ralston are good enough. Tolijan is utterly pish. Another example of Rogers not being able to spot a defender if his life depended on it.

I wouldn’t take Tolijan on a free. That’s how bad he is.



23 Feb 2018 14:33:26
Rogic rejected new contract supoosedly.


1.) 23 Feb 2018 14:42:12
He should be punted anyway.
Doesn't matter how good he is if he's spending 75% of out injured.

{Ed007's Note - That's the problem, Kev. Rodgers feels he can't rely on him over a long season. I posted on a thread the other week that Rogic is in his sixth season with us and has only managed 117 games in that time and it's only 74 of them that are league appearances.}

2.) 23 Feb 2018 14:55:42
Tierney has played that in 2 seasons ed007.
Both rogic boyata and Jozo are in same boat. How can you build a stable midfield or defence when they are never fit.

{Ed007's Note - There's no question about his ability and if I'm being honest I reckon we'd struggle to hold onto Rogic if he was fully fit for a couple of seasons but I'll be surprised if ever gets to that level.}

3.) 23 Feb 2018 15:32:20
Everytime I talk about him I end up comparing him to Phil O'Donnell. Like O'Donnell he will never reach the hights his skill level should take him to.

4.) 23 Feb 2018 16:51:03
Any squad news for Sunday yet? Anyone coming back from injury?

5.) 23 Feb 2018 16:54:35
So why did Rogic get on before Musonda last nite i thought that Musonda would've been on first t play the ten roll not the winger role he did come on for?

6.) 23 Feb 2018 17:21:59
Rogic got on because he has magic feet. When he's fit he's our best player, probably right that we would struggle to keep hold of him tbh. I would still hate to see him go.

7.) 23 Feb 2018 17:23:01
he is 50 times the player o'donnell was.

8.) 23 Feb 2018 17:37:47
I've never seen a player like Rogic last night coming on and no making an effort to run and chance and harry for the ball first then use your skills to create.

9.) 23 Feb 2018 17:45:27
ORD we keep hear people like yourself keep saying When he's fit but he never is.
His average is under 20 game a season
His average for league games in about 12.5 games a season.
That is no use to us at all.

10.) 23 Feb 2018 17:47:53
James I don't agree there but even if that's true the parallels are still there.
O'Donnell had the skill to go higher than he did but being constantly injured stopped that.
Rogic also has the skill to go higher but won't because injury will stop it.

11.) 23 Feb 2018 20:24:30
kev, you obviously didn't watch rogic win the scottish cup last year single handedly.

12.) 23 Feb 2018 20:35:31
I don't think Rogic has the skill that many of you do, and wouldn't be phased if he left tomorrow. Could he become a good or great player? Who cares. He isn't dynamic enough to do what is required in his chosen role in the modern game. Punt.

13.) 23 Feb 2018 21:49:39
Jb67 he didn't win it single handedly so please stop exaggerating. He score a cracking goal but the team won the Scottish cup.

14.) 23 Feb 2018 23:36:41
Kev, rogic did win the cup with a piece of individual skill.

15.) 24 Feb 2018 09:32:34
James so if we had played just rogic we would have won the cup then?
Keeper didn't make any saves that day?
Defenders never made any tackles at all?
Rest of midfield didn't chip in at all?
Just rogic he done it all?

16.) 24 Feb 2018 09:40:07
Was sure Armstrong score a good goal that day to.

17.) 24 Feb 2018 11:13:45
Brendan saying he knows nothing about this story could it b more made up guff from our beloved media.

18.) 24 Feb 2018 12:49:02
give it up kev you're like an old sweetie wife, the guy scored the WINNING goal, and you know that is my point, grow up.

19.) 24 Feb 2018 16:30:28
Ye I did say he score a cracking goal but you said he won it single handedly which was nonsense james.
Like I said team won the Scottish cup.

20.) 24 Feb 2018 18:26:57
with a single handed piece of skill.



30 May 2017 15:37:29
Solanke to liverpool.




17 Jan 2017 23:08:47
Fabio Sturgeon being looked at? Supposedly we had scouts at game last week.


1.) 17 Jan 2017 23:23:55
Something fishy bout that

2.) 18 Jan 2017 10:05:46
Celtic dismissed the link, everything at the club is well under wraps when it comes to transfers if anyone is signed we won't know if there are talks until the club openly admits it

3.) 18 Jan 2017 11:42:59
I had a google at him and apparently Liverpool were interested in him back in 2014, would that not tie in with Brendan Rodgers reign? Potential lazy journalism?

4.) 21 Jan 2017 00:23:27
Gus you will be headhunted for the DR at this rate

Last season we were struggling to break teams down and looked a bit off it. The bhoys went to Dubai and changed it up and went 352. We looked sharp, better, creating more chances.

This season we have come back playing a 4231 instead of the 352 that served us so well. Don't understand the thought process behind going back to a 4231.

Also I knew he was going to take broony off for ntcham today but with hed done it 20 mins earlier. As much as I love broony when the game is as tight as it is you need an ntcham type player on the park.


1.) 10 Aug 2020 06:50:45
The only reason Lenny didn’t play the 3-5-2 was because he doesn’t trust Klimala yet. The game in January proved it is the best system at Rugby Park.
There was always a possibility the game could have turned out to be scrappy because we have struggled to create chances there in the past with the majority of the players we had playing yesterday.
I pointed out a couple of days ago that we should start Elhamad incase the team was struggling to create chances and then we could have switched to a 3-5-2 formation a lot sooner.
I said to my son after 30 minutes this isn’t working and if Elhamad was playing we could have switched formations until half time to see if it made a difference with Elyounoussi moving up top with Eddy.
Because he started with Frimpong we had to wait until 67 minutes to make the change and by that time Killie were camped on their 18 yard line.
On the bright side Celtic didn’t get beat and I don’t think we picked up any injuries and now we move onto Wednesday.

2.) 10 Aug 2020 07:11:59
I think Celtic is the only team in the world where Brown keeps Ntcham out the team. He should be playing every week imo.

3.) 10 Aug 2020 08:45:17
Ntcham is clearly a better footballer than Broony but he has a tendency not to turn up. If we are going into a battle I know who I'd start. We are already lightweight without having another non tackler in midfield. Everyone goes on about when Broony was injured it should be remembered that the three were calmac Christie and rogic. Getting the big man fit could be key for me. His creativity is on another level. I know he's always injured, can only last 60 mins and turns up a few times a season. But what a player he is when on it.



18 Jun 2020 14:09:10
Wondering if anyone knows which way Celtic voted on the reconstruction vote?


1.) 18 Jun 2020 15:12:30
I last I knew Celtic were voting Yes to reconstruction.
Does anyone know who the 3 Premiership clubs that voted No?

2.) 18 Jun 2020 22:55:18
sevco hearts for definitely buzz don't know who the other 1 was.

3.) 19 Jun 2020 00:50:47
Ross County, Aberdeen and Hibs were fairly forthcoming in their opposition but I doubt reconstruction suited St Mirren, St Johnstone, Hamilton or Killie given the drop in TV/ prize money from a twelfth to a fourteenth.

Split happening at matchday 26 will make for a dull second half of the season for those 7th-11th in a 14-team league.



08 Jun 2020 00:14:53
I'm surprised Lenny came out saying he'd be happy to go with the squad we have for next season. It's looking more increasing that he will play a 352 or a 433/ 4231. To play a 352 you need 5 decent cbs. Looking at it now we could go with elhamed Jullien ajer with only bitton as cover. So we definetly need 1 or 2 quality cbs.

Apart from cb the only other position I think we need cover are on the wings. If we can get elyonoussi back on loan that would sort the left wing. Not sure what lennys thoughts are on the right. Will he try mix between Forrest and frimpong when playing a 352.Will shved be involved?

We don't need much maybe just 3 bodies and hold on to what we have.

Gk- sign forster
Rb - potentially another bauer type loan signing and fingers crossed elhamed stays fit.
Lb - sorted
Cbs- sign 1 or 2
Right wing -?
Left wing - elyounosi on loan
Centre mid- sorted if ntcham stays
Cf- sorted of eddy stays.


1.) 08 Jun 2020 08:40:39
Ideally for me :- Forster and Elyounoussi on loan deals. (move C. Gordon on)
Meling At left back. His contract is up in December. (possibly move Boli on)
I’m a big Ajar fan, but if he want to go, replace him with 2 CBs ( preferably left footers)
Paddy Roberts to sign or another loan deal.
Move Bayo on and replace him.
I agree we need 5 CBs and we need 4 reliable centre forwards if we are to continue playing a 3-5-2 system. Griffiths, Bayo and Klimala are not reliable at the moment.
Griffiths staying fit will be crucial but I feel we need to replace Bayo and hope that Klimala is better than his first impressions.

2.) 08 Jun 2020 09:10:20
i was surprised once.

3.) 08 Jun 2020 09:31:49
Might just be paper talk but Southamptom look to be playing hard-ball over Forster. What should be the limit Celtic should go to make sure they get him? Who are the alternatives? I've always liked Benjamin Leroy of Ajaccio.

4.) 08 Jun 2020 11:10:20
Need at least one centre back in, maybe 2 if ajer goes. move bolongoli on and bring a left back In to fight with Taylor. one of the priorities is left wing. if we can’t get Elyounoussi back then someone in there. covered in centre and in the number 10 with rogic and Christie, although any decent offer for rogic I’d take. some completion for forest wouldn’t do any harm either. it bayo goes another striker. priorities are left wing centre half and another keeper if Fraser isn’t coming back.3-4 quality signings and we’ll be ready for 10!

5.) 08 Jun 2020 12:27:23
every year we have reta hopes of market signings with big money invlved and ususally we accept that we have to be realistic given the financial power of Scottish football in general and of Celtic in particular. So this year in the face of corona that is obviously more apparent. If we can keep last years squad = no ins but NO OUTS I think that will be an excellent achievement.

6.) 08 Jun 2020 14:20:03
IF Lenny truly believes that he can go with the squad we have then HE should walk now Bearings in mind our first team goalkeeper will be away our left side midfield player will be away and no cover We definitely need to bring in new players no doubt about it one of the most important if not the most important season of the club's history and we don't need to add aye right. But we will add I am sure and we will yet again make history.

7.) 08 Jun 2020 14:32:43
LB is a priority position to fill. We don't have a decent LB.

8.) 08 Jun 2020 15:27:20
Tony2bhoy, I think you can take it when N Lennon says he is happy with the squad he has, he means the squad he had in season 2019- 2020 Including loan players .
I too would be happy with that plus a couple of additions ( that he has mentioned) here and there .

I know the media have all sorts of disasters befalling our ist team squad, but we all know that’s how the Scottish media gets its kicks. This is nothing new as I can remember reading Scottish papers over 60 yrs ago and they were the same then .
Probably in another 10-15 yrs Celtic fans will wise up and ignore them.

9.) 08 Jun 2020 17:55:32
I agree with you. We need a new LB because I think it’s our weakest position.
Greg Taylor is still only 22 years old and he could come good with Celtic coaching.

10.) 08 Jun 2020 18:48:29
Taylors weakness is he's got zero pace to beat a man so he doesn't offer much overlap on the left most of his play ends up short sideways or backwards passes. Agree 2 x CB needed. GK, LW, and LB and RB cover. Always liked Arber Zaneli very similar to Paddy Roberts but a LW.

11.) 08 Jun 2020 19:03:55
What do you mean we don't have a left back? We've got bolingoli and Taylor. Don't see why so many people hate bolingoli, the fella is class and will prove the doubters wrong this season.
I think cbs and wingers are the only areas we are weak. I don't think lb is a priority for the coming season.

12.) 08 Jun 2020 23:05:22
Its all opinions but personally think Bolingoli is a terrible LB. No positional sense, headless chicken. One of his first games for us he overlapped Forrest on the RW. that's how far he was out of position. Lennon obviously doesn't fancy him. He played Johnny Hayes before him.



19 Jan 2020 00:11:20
Big Jullien is a bombscare waiting to happen. I know the big man has scored some big goals and had some big performances but he puts the fear in my when he's on the ball. His back pass today that led to their penalty is school boy stuff. He seems really slow and it's as if he doesn't know how to use his body. Not sure what it is, it's as if he can use his strength and balance properly at times. Think we need another cb of high quality this window.


1.) 19 Jan 2020 13:26:18
Bomb scare come on @RONNY
one we hiccup what about all the gd stuff he did that game like win every header at halfway line he missed the ball it happens. Come confidence boosting positivity did the bing scare not play great or score a cracker against to win a cup The nit picking is bad . We are spoiled Celtic fans now we needed competition or the board would never invest. So rangers have improved correct Celtic have invested in a few new lads could be amazing and rangers can't buy any players can't sell any players and skint which side would you be happier being on.



28 Dec 2019 23:55:12

Apparently team above.


1.) 29 Dec 2019 00:21:55
This will be the team I would imagine ORD, let's everyone play in their best natural position, I would probably have Johnston instead of Hayes but Hayes probably offers better cover for Boli.

2.) 29 Dec 2019 08:16:25
Dont say that lol. Hayes?
Bizarre if true.

3.) 29 Dec 2019 08:33:27
Only change I'd make would be johnstone for hayes.

4.) 29 Dec 2019 08:49:18
It allows forrest to play on the right and Christie in no 10 so happy with that. Would have preferred johnstone but we'll see how it goes. Should have more than enough to win.

5.) 29 Dec 2019 09:11:56
I agree with that HT. The fact we have Edouard will make us a different animal to the last game.

6.) 29 Dec 2019 11:20:49
I'd change it even more and go with a back 3. Got a feeling Slippy will change it as well and have a front two of Defoe and El Coo. That'll leave enough scope in midfield for us to counter-attack or consolidate. In the CF they huffed and puffed and ended up getting nowhere.
I'd go

The Wall




I'd have Gump switching wings when need to. I've also got a premonition that El Heifer will score against us.

{Ed007's Note - Celtic XI v TRIFC: Forster, Frimpong, Jullien, Ajer, Bolingoli, Brown, Johnston, McGregor, Christie, Forrest, Edouard.
Subs: Gordon, Hayes, Bitton, Bauer, Rogic, Ntcham, Griffiths

7.) 29 Dec 2019 11:47:08
Although I'll be delighted if Christie plays through the middle how could Lennon justify playing Hayes on the wing?

8.) 29 Dec 2019 12:09:25
That would be the weakest left side in recent memory.
Go with the same lineup as Boxing Day or start with Johnston on the left, they are the 2 options Lenny has, without complicating things further.

Beating Barcelona. no biggy. Unbelievable that you think getting champions league for 4 seasons isn't good enough. Cluj and aek Athens we should be beating but qualifying for champions league isn't easy now and we made up for it every season by having a good run in the Europa.
Is it lawells fault Lennon decided to play cal at left back vs cluj?

4 champions league appearances and qualified out of tough Europa groups 3 times.

Some people are just never happy.


{Ed007's Note - It was Lawwell that appointed Lennon - the cheap option and a yes man who won't rock the boat - who didn't have the tactical nous to see out a game for 14 minutes against Cluj

mally thinks we had an excellent transfer window and six centre backs.

If someone told you you were going for 9IAR and you've got
2 good CBs on their day (jullien and ajer)
1 whos been injured on and off for 2 years any not reliable
1 is bitton - yes bitton who we've had to move to cb
1 is our first choice rb whos injured and injury prone

would you be happy with that? Why aren't we planning ahead. Every season we go into Champions league qualifiers with either no CB (hence why bitton got moved there in the first place) or with no striker.

Everyone at the club knows we need cover at CB. If Jullien or Ajer get injured then it leaves us very short.

Don't rate the lad. He's slow, turns like a double decker bus, for his height he should be bossing players and not rolling about. Boli needs a good talking to after rolling about holding his face as well.

Whatever is happening it's causing us to play very below par. We have scraped through December. Let's just win on Sunday and regroup in January. Sign a cf and lw and cb and we go again.
