Celtic park did not crumble when King Kenny left for pastures new or when King Billy McNeill retired and lately when Henke called time on his hoops career and it certainly won't if any of our current squad move on. I'm not saying this in any bitterness towards Stuart Armstrong, Tom Rogic or wee Paddy, but if you see your future elsewhere then thanks for your service and good luck for the future.

When your down there in the land of plenty tell Gary Hooper and big Fraser Foster we were asking for them. Grass might be richer but certainly not greener down there.

Brilliantly put Pat. No one is bigger than the club.

2.) 14 May 2018 09:15:23
Agreed, but. You cannot fault anyone for chasing cash, it's a short earning span so anyone would, far less guys who were not Celtic fans as kids. Some put contentment and a settled family life before cash.

As long as someone does their job to 100% in our shirt i wish them luck.

Remember the highest paid players at Celtic are earning more money than the lowest paid players in the EPL . In a recent survey the average wage in the EPL was given at £20,000 per week.

4.) 15 May 2018 15:20:24
Average weekly wage in epl is £50000.

5.) 15 May 2018 17:52:43
With some getting upward of two hundred thousand and more getting upward of one hundred thousand and many more getting upward of fifty thousand, there must be some on really low wages for a footballer for the average to be twenty thousand.

{Ed007's Note - I remember a couple of years back (under Lennon's time I think) and the average Pub League wage was £28k because I remember thinking we should be able to afford £30k a week for a couple of players that would transform the team. A defender, midfielder and striker in that wage bracket would have been a better gamble than signing players like Amido Balde, Bangura and Pukki and how much money overall did we waste on Boeriggter? Somebody should have got a boot in the haw-maws for that one.}

6.) 15 May 2018 19:22:58
Amido Balde’s name still gives me the fear, the other players mentioned were poor but he was a different level. Was like when you invite a new boy to fives and soon realise that football wasn’t his sport😂.

7.) 15 May 2018 21:58:29
Remember a couple of years ago, a West Bromwich Albion player drove on the closing day to London to talks with Harry Rednapp . This player whose name I cannot even start to play was on £7k per week .
If the ave wage is £20k or £40k, some players can be on as little as £10k or less . Scottish players certainly are not entering above average, more likely below.

8.) 16 May 2018 10:49:03
We can def afford to give 40-50k a week for a starting 11 and bench.

we just choose not to at the moment because we don't need to. The board are happy playing it safe and fair enough.

Makes us look like we need a Rangers challenge though, which we don't as we have made record profits without them.

It's just that the board lack ambition without challenge, but imo we should be setting our own standards and not always playing it so easy.



26 Apr 2018 23:37:36
Just a wee word on big Ajer. I think the boy is going to be a cracking player very composed and will benefit having a class CH beside him but at Easter road last week he made some good breaks from defence up the park but second half far too often he lost the ball and put us in trouble. All part of the learning curve but the big fella needs to know when to go and when to be sensible. The cry of " Right Dedryck I'm off on a run you hold the fort gives me the jitters". Having said all that big Bobo on the charge was epic. Didn't stop till he reached Bridgeton cross 🍀.


1.) 27 Apr 2018 10:54:28
agree Patdabhoy. Reminds me of Van Dyke when he bursts out from back up to half way with two big strides, he`s just not mastered it yet, done it a few times in semi, only to turn ball back to Broonie who had dropped back as cover.

2.) 27 Apr 2018 23:21:17
Patdabhoy How often did Ager lose the ball whilst on charges up the field and how often did he put Celtic under pressure .
Did we concede any goals as a result of a charge up the pitch.

3.) 28 Apr 2018 23:30:21
Lost a couple in the second half that put us on the back foot and no we never lost a goal directly from him losing the ball. read my post again old man im praising the boy just needs to play with the head at times. Lose the ball like that in Europe your punished.

4.) 29 Apr 2018 03:53:01
He won't do those runs in Europe. It's a gap in our central skill set. We didn't get punished when he tried it before and I wouldn't discourage it. How many times this season have we watched left to right and backwards passing? I'd say let him do it and improve at it because we don't have anyone that runs with the ball through the middle apart from SA.

5.) 30 Apr 2018 11:29:37
Being older he reminds me of a young Alan Hansen, and I don't think I can pay him a bigger compliment.
Agree, a mature CH right next to him and he could be world class.

6.) 30 Apr 2018 22:45:49
He will play many a game before he is fortunate enough to play with as class and as dominant as yesterday with Boyata . Boyata was suberb yesterday and showed fully just how good he is . We will be exceptionally lucky if Brendan can persuade him to sign new contract.
Ajer is only young, if he doesn't make foreward runs against diddy wee teams like Hibs and Rangers 2012, how will he know whether he can do them against European clubs, but more important he has one of the best Uk manager B R to advise nim how and when to carry foreward and when to pass . He is only learning and we can trust Brendan.



08 Apr 2018 21:20:12
Said before our wins at Pittodrie and Ibrox that domestically when we need to step up a gear we do and the same for next Sunday. Today was laborious like many games of late. Personally I think our European adventures caught up with us. Not sure exactly how many more games we've played than the rest but the manner of some of the defeats left us chasing shadows and took a hell of a lot out the bhoys throw in an injury list as long as your arm and its a fair effort being three games from another treble. For me its Bain KT Ajer Boyata Lustig Brown McGregor Roberts Forrest Rogic Griffiths.


1.) 09 Apr 2018 07:19:55
Ad go with bain lustig ajer boyata kt
Brown ntcham Armstrong rogic Forrest dembelle.

2.) 09 Apr 2018 08:15:43
Griff must start next week last two games Dembele has been clean thru missed both.

3.) 09 Apr 2018 12:15:22
Have to start with the Griff and moussa on the bench.

4.) 10 Apr 2018 09:38:21
Has to be gordon, lustig, simonovic, boyata, tierney, brown, armstrong, rogic, mcgregor, forrest, griffiths for me anyway.

5.) 10 Apr 2018 13:25:54
That whole team are ronnies team are they not? It’s just the one pace I fear if we go with a tempo they won’t live with us as all over the pitch we are superior it’s the pace that dictates it for me? cannot wait would love a wee hun skelping start my birthday week off with a bang 🙂🍀⚽️.

6.) 10 Apr 2018 18:52:27
makes no difference if its ronnys team as its brendans now but imo that is our strongest 11 as we stand and that team would do them over.

7.) 10 Apr 2018 20:44:36
patdabhoy no way roberts and forrest will both start.

8.) 11 Apr 2018 09:55:30
Moussa is a big game player he is rank rotten in the run of the mill games but steps up for the big games . bit I would start the semi with griff up front.



22 Feb 2018 21:28:50
no one can doubt big lustigs love of celtic and the service he has gave us but his times up at celtic. how musonda didn't start is a mystery. i genuinely thought that zenit team were there for the taking even at 2 -0 but alas we watched the same old movie. i still think its grossly unfair to criticise our achievements over the last season and a half but its clear some boys need moved on kouassi being one.

id take 30 bob for jozo and the 40 million for the mouse seems a lifetime away. win the next two league games and the leagues in the bag young Bain needs a game DDV was embarrassing tonight. the subject of investment will raise its head again but in a nutshell we won't and can't spend to compete with the likes of Zenit who in my opinion are no great shakes. We shall not be moved.


1.) 23 Feb 2018 09:35:21
I agree with everything except the kouassi part last week was his best game for us last night he wasn't up to it.

2.) 23 Feb 2018 12:41:40
Sad to have to admit it about Lustig. Ideally he could stay around and finish his career here, playing on a more occasional basis, why some young prodigy learns the ropes.

3.) 23 Feb 2018 12:48:17
It isn't all about how much we spend. Astana drew 3-3 away to Sporting and imo Sporting are better than Zenit and we are better than Astana. We should be capable of better than that performance. There needs to be more quality added to the team and not these cheap budget signings. The team needs quality experience added too. I think over the campaign we have seen who our core players are. Ajer, Tierney, Brown, Ntcham, Forrest. Time to build a team around these guys. Still got the likes of Sinky, Griffiths, Compper, Clamac, Musonda Be interesting to see if BR is backed by the board now as I'm sure he'll want to overhaul the squad in the summer and get shot of the ones he doesn't think is up to standard. But knowing the board it'll be the usual biscuit tin approach until our European fate is decided. They'll be question marks over Gordon, De Vries, Jozo, Boyata, Lustig, Gamboa, Armstrong, Rigid, Dembele, Edouard, Roberts at the end of the season.

4.) 23 Feb 2018 12:52:27
Lustig needs rested and Ralston developed giving us the best of both a rejuvenated lustig and game experience for his natural replacement with both fighting for/ backing up the right back position. is musonda mature/ good enough to run the midfield. kouassi and ntcham cost a combined 7 mill aprox . both are ok. But 1 quality player instead of two ok with potential would've been better? . bain who went to loan at hibs and never played. harsh until we see him in goals for us l know . but we've known we needed a new keeper since before br arrived and still not been addressed.

5.) 23 Feb 2018 18:01:58
I'd like is to buy Bain as our number 2 and get shot of both Gordon and De Vries and get another keeper too and try loan out Hazard. I hope there has been a lot of cash out by for a spending spree as the squad clearly needs investing in. If all of the mentioned above was sold on that would generate around 30 odd million. Add VVD cash and CL cash and there plenty there to overhaul the squad. There's a few that don't want to be here, a few not good enough to be here and a few that are injured far too often. With that cash surely we can afford a new GK, CB, RB, CM and ST. If the board aren't willing to back BR then why should he stay?



04 Feb 2018 01:44:44
Ok the two injuries didn't help and the pitch wasn't great but hey its alright as long as Rangers get beat. well it's not ok our style of play is so predictable average teams like Killie (no disrespect) make us look bang average and Brendan can't change it. Still insist we missed a trick not getting Moult from Motherwell because when we need to go long there's nobody suited for that.

Should have sold Dembele in the window his heads elsewhere (French world cup squad) . It's not good enough just to win the league it's how we do it that concerns me. Like the look of Hendry and big Ajer was doing well. I think Helen Flannagan should be getting the suitcases packed because I'm not sure sinky will be there next year. And we still need a number 1 GK in the summer.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 06:45:30
If dembele has his head on the world cup squad then he would need to get his finger out.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 10:03:59
To be fair to Dembele he received no service whatsoever. A day when everything that could go, did go wrong. It could easily have been a bigger beating. They missed a couple of great chances.

I wonder if Gordon will revert to eddy and Moussa again? With Charly taking Forrest’s place?

That’s how I would go.

3.) 04 Feb 2018 11:58:54
As I have said all season, this slow build up from the back is so frustrating. all we do with passing the ball about the back is give teams time to get 11 men behind the ball and get organised.
Honestly think we are far too predictable in our play and never mix it up, yesterday Forrest only player willing to take players on and try and create something.
What has happened to Sinclair? he has lost it this season altogether.
Some players really need a kick up the arse.

4.) 04 Feb 2018 23:22:55
Dembele and Edouard are both 6 foot or above so explain how there was no one to go long to? They barely touched the ball because the service was shocking.

Just seen the headlines in the Record regarding the passing of young Liam Miller. Utterly deplorable and if Peter Lawwell has any balls he will ban this rag and every journalist related to them from Celtic park. God rest your soul Liam. Rosary said for you tonight ☘.


1.) 10 Feb 2018 19:01:46
How what did they say pataboy?

2.) 10 Feb 2018 19:21:00
Posted a pic this morning if anyone buys this rag again they need look in the mirror . only in Scotland.

3.) 10 Feb 2018 21:34:52
Regardless of the story in the record regarding Liam miller, the fact they removed the story and apologized says it all. Totally agree, this rag and their journalist's should no longer be welcome inside the grounds of Celtic park.

4.) 10 Feb 2018 23:26:14
Im not following bhoys, yous are upset that they reported his death?

{Ed007's Note - The headline was inappropriate and of order but the article was spot on, it was a bit strange the headline got the go ahead in the first place. }

5.) 11 Feb 2018 01:11:05
Well the sun had Liam's picture on the front page, and a respectfully written piece inside, can't believe anyone or any paper would write a bad word about this story, will have to check it online.

6.) 11 Feb 2018 01:17:40
Said he sent pics to jealous friends boasting about how great his life was in America just months before he got cancer. it was online they took it down and posted a half hearted apology. scum of a paper.



17 Jan 2018 20:50:23
Good luck to Liam Henderson in the new chapter of his career. Maybe unfortunate to break into the side at a time when midfielders were rife but in all honesty he was just a bit short of being a mainstay in there. Good luck to the bhoy all the same ☘.




01 Jan 2018 18:19:02
Happy new year to all on here. Sitting here thinking to myself about 2017 as a celtic supporter and you know what I think my first game was 1972 or 73 and if I live to be 100 I doubt if I'll see a season/ year like we just had. We are all experts when we give our opinion on here myself included and being realistic it's unfair to criticise again myself included. Celtic teams evolve Celtic teams break up but one things for sure we'll be there and we'll always be there like we have for the last 130 years of unbroken history. Hail Hail ☘.




29 Dec 2017 23:49:08
Lewis Morgan looked the business tonight against Dundee United. Two cracking goals and at 300K definitely one for the future.




27 Dec 2017 21:26:29
Carrying on with the festivities here's a wee joke.
Celtic v TRIFC at parkhead and wee Billys off to game. Unawares he strays into a staunch celtic pub for a pint. Barman and the locals notice his blue scarff and surround.

Hey you says the barman we don't allow bluenoses in here, in fact we kill them but seeing it's the festive season I'll give ye a chance. Barman hands Billy a dice and says if you roll a 1 2 3 4 or 5 we do ye in. What happens if I roll a 6 asks Billy? Ye get another shot says the Barman ☘.

Kenlike I think the shock might be Armstrong staying put. Unless there's people in the know then correct me but he didn't celebrate on Wednesday like a guy that's for the offer. Wouldn't be the least surprised to see Dembele go right at the end of the window so there's no time to spend the dosh and that'll be another £20 million towards Paradise hotel.

Thought Paddy looked really scunnered on the bench and at one point when the camera was on him he lowered his head and stared at the ground. The impression it gave me there and then was that he's had enough sitting on the bench.

Hearing rumours of a press conference At Ibrox tomorrow. Guy that owned the whiskey bond at Dumbarton sold out to yanks for 280 million and is investing 30 million. Two others also investing heavily too. Heard this from a glimpse mate. Another 10 million and they might be able to pay there debts. Time will tell but a don t think Gerrards here without some dollars to spend. If it's true being it on.

Some performances domestically haven't been great but like Pittodrie last sunday when we need to turn up we usually do and the same will happen at Ibrox. To be fair they've picked up points of late but we will be a different prospect. Said last week that a win at aberdeen and away to them then the leagues over and stand by that.

DeVries has to start no other option back four of Lustig KT Ajer and Jozo. Jozo hasn't become a donkey overnight and there's no way you can throw young Hendry in with Ajer. Far too inexperienced. Brown Ntcham and Forrest are stick ons. Sinclair on the left but he must turn up on Thursday. Not suggesting the lads not trying but there's others coming back from injury to take his place. Hopefully SS turns it on. I would have McGregor in front of the midfield for his work rate alone.

Games probably too soon for Stuart Armstrong and maybe not suited either for Musondas flashy tricks. Moussa or Edourd. probably just Moussa. Remember lads there will be a decent bench for back up and I think I read somewhere that a draw home or away earns enough points for us to be seeded at some stage in the qualifying rounds. Praying for a home no goals against win but a nil nil wouldn't be a disaster bhoys. Just my humble opinion ☘.
