News just broke that arsenal have offered £25 million for kt.


1.) 13 Jul 2019 23:19:26
Good money but would be heartbreaking to see him go, love KT, he deserves his big money move. Hopefully he’ll come back when he’s established himself as the best full back in the world 🍀.

2.) 13 Jul 2019 23:27:14
If it's true then it will be sad to see KT go if it happens. However the lad deserves his chance at a higher level and all the best to him. He will be valued at 50 million plus after a season in the EPL. Great money for the club too.

3.) 13 Jul 2019 23:45:55
Well if true it’s now up to Celtic and Tierney now Arsenal have match the price let’s see.

4.) 14 Jul 2019 00:36:56
A cracking fee for us. Yes a true Celt but what’s to say he will come back just as good? Take the money improve the squad all round and secure the 10 for the club and fans.

5.) 14 Jul 2019 00:52:53
will he pass a medical though?

6.) 14 Jul 2019 01:18:28
We seem too have gone quiet on the recruitment front since this deal has gone quiet as much as I don't want it too happen if it facilitates 4 of 5 first teamers coming in thenit has too happen 🙁.

7.) 14 Jul 2019 02:32:51
We all knew he would be going.
We paid £3m for Boli to start and not sit on the bench.

8.) 14 Jul 2019 05:01:18
Still reckon £25 million is too cheap, but that seems to be the figure branded that will make this move happen, so in that case unless it’s £25 million up front with add ons he wouldn’t be going anywhere. I do realise some will say £25 million is fantastic money, but 1 good season down there and tierney will be quoted in the £50 million bracket. The money going around down there us ridiculous so lawwell better stand strong in these negotiations and get the absolute best deal possible for him. I’m still a bit frustrated in players coming in ie a new RB. If this deal for tierney goes through I’m fully expecting another 3/ 4 quality signings to come in.

9.) 14 Jul 2019 06:12:19
I’m a bit gutted to be honest, I wanted him here for the ten. Like another poster said earlier, how can he pass a medical unless he is actually fit and just wasn’t training to push through a move. I can’t see how we were told he still can’t train due to the hernia op and now had the pubic bone problem to passing a medical potentially two days later 🤷‍♂️.

10.) 14 Jul 2019 06:36:50
Gutted if KT leaving.
Anyone think we could go back for Castagne again if we receive £25m for KT or has that ship sailed?

11.) 14 Jul 2019 08:10:48
I great loss for us but can't help thinking it's going to be tough for him at Arsenal. They won't be winning anything any time soon and could easily drop out top 6 this season. I can even see Judas being the one to do it. I hope he stays for another year and gets a better offer and doesn't feel this is his only option.

12.) 14 Jul 2019 10:01:48
guys i will be gutted if kt leaves. but i believe he will be leaving for more than we think. i believe he is leaving to ensure we get 10iar because with his transfer money we can now kick on to a different level. it will break this wee mans heart to walk away and i believe he WILL orchestrate the green brigade again. thanks wee man for giving your young life to our club and hurry back please. hail hail.

13.) 14 Jul 2019 10:31:29
Chances are he’s off, I appreciate the league is bigger and better and he quite possibly deserves the chance to improve himself. However I can’t quite see him running back up Wembley steps with blood pouring from his mouth with an arsenal shirt on, to celebrate with fans and team mates. He will never have what he has now with us, I think he knows that as well.

14.) 14 Jul 2019 11:51:49
I think too many people have jumped the gun previously with these rumours. I for one will take everything with a pinch of salt from now.
KT was apparently leaving for far less than what was quoted 3 weeks ago by the rags!
“The deal was imminent” as they said then it went quiet.
Now that a new supposed bid of “25m” is here every Celtic fan is getting worked up again. I don’t even believe it is 25 all up front. Again some probable derisory bid of 20+ add ons
Wouldn’t trust that shower of tam shankers in a million years to report the truth, so until Celtic confirm it I’ll not worry about it too much.

15.) 14 Jul 2019 14:28:42
Like everyone else I would be gutted to lose KT and until he actually goes I still have hope that he will stay for the 10. Surely 25m up front with add-ons only means that we would be willing to sell therefore Arsenal can speak with KT about a transfer but ultimately it is his decision whether to go or not as he has a contract with us.

16.) 14 Jul 2019 17:47:00
Rumours now circulating that Celtic have rejected Arsenal’s bid of “25m”
Again, across social media so many Celtic pages and supporters getting worked up about this without knowing all the details.
We, as a club, have stated we will only sell at what we believe is the correct price (which nobody actually knows apart from our board) and also have said that we don’t even need to sell.
In other rumours, KT has apparently told a friend he no longer wishes to speak to Arsenal and wants to stay at Celtic (so who really knows now? )
I’m going to go with my gut on this and I think the arsenal deal won’t happen. But if it does happen it will be the best deal for Celtic and the player possible.
Keep the faith HH.



20 Jun 2019 22:37:12
We are signing turnbull again😂.




26 Feb 2019 15:56:10
He’s gone with his staff but left us Lee congerton 😂.


1.) 26 Feb 2019 16:20:32
Wonder if he will let us extend benkovich loan.

2.) 26 Feb 2019 16:21:23
Says it all 😂

Though to be fair Congerton might be identifying good targets and the board aren't putting the money up. Who knows?

3.) 26 Feb 2019 16:28:29
And John Kennedy👍🏻.

4.) 26 Feb 2019 17:06:05
Glad he's left kennedy.

5.) 26 Feb 2019 17:25:07
He’ll take Benkovic and be back for Tierney and McGregor in the summer and why wouldn’t he? If he offers £40m for the pair Lawwell will bite his hand off as that will offset David Moyes failing to get us into the Champions League because that how Lawwell’s mind works unfortunately, I lay the blame for today’s event squarely at the Celtic board’s lack of ambition, it’s shocking!

6.) 26 Feb 2019 17:48:55
Kennedy needs to go too.

7.) 26 Feb 2019 18:28:13
Lawwell should be reviewing his role in this saga, but we all know he won’t . every time we have a successful manager he pisses them off, O’Neill, Strachan, Lennon and inflicted Mowbray and Deila on us, to me he is the problem here, he’s only interested in banking money and pocketing his obscene bonus not taking the club forward!

{Ed007's Note - Peter Lawwell is told what to do by the board.}

8.) 26 Feb 2019 19:17:27
Kev83 just out of curiosity why are you glad he left Kennedy?

9.) 26 Feb 2019 19:51:12
Because everything u have read or heard about him seems like he is a good coach.
Plus right now we need someone in there that has worked with these players.

10.) 27 Feb 2019 01:18:30
That’s my biggest fear if he comes in for Mcgregor Tierney or Forrest how could the board or the players turn down that money treble wages and about 40million.



21 Jan 2019 06:19:28
Linked today with a Porto right back called fonseca. He’s been loaned out a couple of times already and apparently is available for less than 2million. Haven’t seen him but if there’s any substance to it, it would seem we are well down our list of right backs. Started the window with talk of 6milion Belgian, then a 4 million Norwegian, now a 2 million under 21 player who can’t get in his own side .


1.) 21 Jan 2019 06:38:11
. and if Pedro succeeds with his usual plan, we will get someone in on loan for nowt.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 06:39:34
Quinn1888, I love your positive outlook. lol
We'll just have to wait and see who comes in. HH.

3.) 21 Jan 2019 08:07:21
Only 21 and Militao who is currently being chased by Real is Porto's main RB and has played every game for them this season so not surprised the lad can't in the team.

Report said Juve were looking at him in the summer, if true the lad must have something about him. Lad's contract is coming to and end which would explain low value.

4.) 21 Jan 2019 08:55:23
Have a look at his Wikipedia account. A celtic fan seems glad we are after a eight back haha.

5.) 21 Jan 2019 09:41:22
The Belgians club are quoting 10 million for him and he said he wants to play in one of the top leagues.
The Norwegians club have said he's going no where. So I fail to see how that's lawwels fault.
Isn't that the whole point of having a list?

6.) 21 Jan 2019 10:04:57
Just because it's rumoured doesn't mean it's true. We might never have been after the Belgian. We will see who is in come end of the window then we can moan or praise the signings.

7.) 21 Jan 2019 10:20:48
The £6M Belgian was struggling to get into his own side not so long ago Quinn. This obsession with transfer fees is baffling. We've already shown that if the value is there, the club are willing to spend good money. Tbh from any clips etc I've seen I think Elabdellaoui looks much better than Castagne but that's only YouTube I suppose.

8.) 21 Jan 2019 11:51:28
We’re never going to pay £6m for a right back, nor would we pay £4m for a 28 year old. £2m for a former U-21 aligns with our transfer policy.

9.) 21 Jan 2019 15:44:33
I agree with you Kev Bhoy regarding the Norwegian, from the boys I’ve seen he seems to be the better option. With regards to them saying they don’t want to sell, realistically what does that mean nowadays . We didn’t want to sell loads of players but if a buying club puts up the money we and the majority of clubs around all change their mind. If we really wanted him we may have to pay what they want within reason.

10.) 21 Jan 2019 16:17:07
Exactly quinn within reason but if a club ain't willing to sell then it takes big money to get the player.

11.) 21 Jan 2019 16:31:11
Quinn and Kev, from the paper talk it would appear that someone, somewhere thought, or was told, Castagne was worth about €6M. Then all of a sudden Lazio, Fiorentina etc. are "interested" and then the price is €10M. If any of this is actually true but none of these other teams bid then that price may well drop again. I did read something saying the player himself was pretty uninspired by the idea of playing in Scotland - again though, God knows who these "sources" actually are.

12.) 21 Jan 2019 18:39:18
Wouldn't mind us going for someone like Petar Stojanovic at Zagreb. Big Benko could sell him on a move and wouldn't cost too much. Remember him doing well against us while at Maribor.



06 Jan 2019 08:33:28
Ed, you may have spoken about this before but can you or someone else explain who sets up the transfer deals . Say for instance, the forward we are linked with . We bid 1.7 million, we obviously scout him but who sets his value? Is it Rogers saying don't go above 2 million, or Congerton. Or would it be Lawwell ( who has been accused of penn pinching loads of times ) . If Brendan wants him could he say just pay what they want? For some reason we take ages to get players over the line, I’m sure i read we had a deal in place for Odsonne at first with PSG, let the time pass then they increased their value .


{Ed002's Note - I can't explain for Celtic but I can tell you how other clubs decide. The scouting staff will prepare reports on players and provide an idea about price; coaches will look at the players but have no idea about price; they will go to a Director of Football (or perhaps a mix of the finance director and others responsible for the monies) and say we would like this player and we think he will cost £x. Checking against available budgets, the club will likely approach his agent to ask if the player might be interested in the move and a broad idea about the package the player would want, and any broad idea about what the club would want - and what terms they may be open to (cash up front, spread over a year etc.). This sits inside the overall transfer process which looks something like this:
The process should be along the lines of: Clubs will typically informally ask an agent (a) if the player is going to be available, and (b) would the player consider a move to the club. There may be some broad discussion on the sort of deal that would be offered but no more than that. If the answer is yes, it is then necessary for the club to approach the player's club to ask if they would be willing to sell and if they would grant permission to speak to a player's agent formally about a transfer and possibly even the player about actually making a move. This will typically involve either broadly (through an offer) or actually agreeing a fee and responsibility for any significant costs (agents fees etc.). Once this has happened the club will be able to speak to the player's agent and perhaps the player himself to look at the package that will be involved. Many players are looked at and discussed at a high-level with agents and clubs; a subset of those have an offer placed; a subset of those involve discussions with the player's club; a subset of those involve discussions over terms, and; a subset of those go ahead.

Agents will often try and get more specific details of wages and other financials before they should - but most clubs are happy to follow this process. Players will often talk to other players about moves but, whilst wrong, is tolerated as it would be impossible to manage.

Alternatively, a selling club may ask an agent to find a new club for a player and he will talk directly to poetntial selling sides about the fee, personal terms and interest.

The rest of the time agents will be on fishing trips trying to find interest in their players.

In terms of what happens when the negotiations take place, broad agreement (player available and open to discussions, understanding of the price) will already have been reached. The clubs will meet to discuss the details of the transfer fee, other costs associated with the move and the structure of the payments and any additional fees (e.g another €5M for winning the Champions League etc.) but this does not take a "few days".}

1.) 06 Jan 2019 20:06:05
So for the likes of Dembele Ed, have you any idea how much Celtic would have received up front. I'm assuming Lyon wouldn't pay all £20m or whatever it was all at once? In other words, how much do Celtic have in the pot?

{Ed007's Note - The Dembele fee was paid in full after Lawwell played hardball.}

2.) 06 Jan 2019 20:52:48
Isnt that pretty unusual? But means we have £20m in the bank to splash on a striker, cb and rb is pretty useful haha.

{Ed007's Note - Yes it's unusual but after Dembele's antics Lawwell wanted to get a dig back at them and that was it - he could leave if Lyon stumped up the fee up front which really was putting the ball back in their court, if Lyon refused it would be their fault the transfer didn't go through and Dembele would probably still be a Celtic player.}

3.) 06 Jan 2019 21:50:15
Good old pistol pete.

4.) 06 Jan 2019 22:45:44
So with all that said and now done Well done Mr Lawwell but we know need a replacement thanks MR Lawwell hopefully.

{Ed007's Note - I say it again and again, you can't fault Peter Lawwell for the money he brings into the Club, it's when it comes to spending it there's a problem.}

I’m sick of hearing about the same old stuff every season regarding Europe from the club.
It’s a bitter pill to swallow,
It’s a tough lesson to learn.
I’m sorry but when are the people in charge or with boots on their feet going to heed the lessons we keep getting from mediocre sides at best in Europe .
If we get through which at the minute is a big ask for us, I would like the fans to boycott at least one of the Europa games to show our displeasure with the disregard we are shown as fans. We are biased but it would be hard to find more loyal fans than us, people that can’t afford it make efforts to follow the team, buy kits for family, all the training gear etc . Then get fed the usual load of rhetoric season after season . If we manage to get 9 it will be a surprise to me at the minute. We are ran by Peter Lawell, but we don’t have a permanent scouting person in charge, the cheapest option for a manager and an executive who is happy to show a profit without really improving a team, as long as he and the other shareholders can pick up their large bonus cheques.
We are stumbling to 9, the huns are chasing us hard and have thrown everything they can to stop us . We wouldn’t do the same . I understand we don’t want to go bankrupt but equally every now and again we could over spend on a budget to give us a fighting chance for qualification in Europe and give the fans and players a boost. Rather than how we are all feeling today.
Going out last night could probably cost us Ntcham, eddy which in turn makes us weaker again.


1.) 14 Aug 2019 12:30:27
I'll be boycotting the rest of the Euro run. Sick of paying for tickets over and above my ST and seeing displays like last night. We've become the whipping bhoys for not just the big teams but also the mediocre.

2.) 14 Aug 2019 12:31:38
I think an empty stadium for EL is the best option as sad as it is to say that.
If you can't at least match what we put into the club week in week out, then see how it goes without our support. I can't think of another option to get the message across.

3.) 14 Aug 2019 15:26:16
We r going for 9 in a row. Forget last night and get behind our team regardless the opposition or competition. Not the time to throw toys out the pram.

4.) 16 Aug 2019 11:22:16
Whoever shells out money for the EL qualifier and subsequent group matches IF we make it needs there head examined! Give them nothing and let them see an empty stadium with the disco lights on! For far to long they’ve took the fans for granted but even the most patient fans must make a stand! To lose 4 goals at home to cluj is unforgivable and something stinks from top to bottom at our club! From boardroom to recruitment to management it all got laid bare last nite with that dross! Like I said if anyone shells out money to lawell and his cronies for the EL they will never ever learn! There comes a point when enough is enough and action is needed over words!



13 Aug 2019 20:06:17
We need to sort the left back situation out ASAP . It’s going to cost us sooner or later . Lennon said they had plans in place if tierney left, where are they?


1.) 13 Aug 2019 20:37:29
Dont know what to make of that first half. If you can't get motivated for these games then what's the point. Big eyeopener for the season ahead.

2.) 13 Aug 2019 20:42:21
Feck all to do with motivation and everything to do with Lennon.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 20:42:35
The lack of signings could yet again screw us out of the champions league. they best get the finger out and win I would also look at getting a new keeper. Bain not it for me.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 20:43:26
Fair point, big pressure coming his way after this.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 20:43:31
Shocking first half, why is mcgregor playing LB? Ano bolingoli hasn’t set the heather on fire but £3 million we’ve paid for him and he’s on the bench? Playing mcgregor at LB against sevco didn’t work and it’s no working for me tonight. We take mcgregor out the midfield we lose so much. big big half here for us. If we don’t turn this questions will be asked about the lack of signings in key areas. especially LB.



12 Aug 2019 09:02:59
Has any broadcaster took up the option of the game Tuesday?


1.) 12 Aug 2019 10:07:13
No broadcaster mate but it's on Celtic tv.

2.) 12 Aug 2019 11:42:42
What’s the Champions League game BT are showing?

3.) 12 Aug 2019 12:58:46
Think it’s just celtic tv showing the game on Tuesday, bt sport showing the next qualifying round tho Im not 100%.

4.) 12 Aug 2019 14:07:42
Don’t think they want any games till the final qualifier, slavia game will probably be on BT.

5.) 12 Aug 2019 14:23:38
Well there’s a live Champions League game on the schedule for BT Sport 2 tomorrow night.



10 Aug 2019 08:13:12
Nicky Hammond must have the best job in the world, transfer guru who isn’t being used . Pointless bringing him in for a summer trial 🤷‍♂️ Can he play left back?


1.) 10 Aug 2019 10:09:26
It's a fact he has been away scouting several player but all he can do is make the recommendations after that it's up to other people.

2.) 10 Aug 2019 15:51:39
Was he not brought in to negotiate / help with negotiations? I thought it was only a trial for the summer window.



09 Aug 2019 14:30:56
It would seem that Peter is completely running the show now, something I feared when lennon was given the job . After most euro ties he said he expects a couple in before the next rounds. Not happened, sold tierney . Told we need 5 players, then later said maybe 2-3 but we need to offload players first . If that’s the case, the board need to go, are we trying to hand the league to the huns and be happy to make Europa? We all know we need players in for Prague if we get past Cluj.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 14:48:39
Most supporters feared the same as the friction between him and the previous manager was evident from his second season and he was never going to appoint another high profile manager to challenge his authority or convince him to move with the times.
Unfortunately, the rod of fear wielded since their demise in 2012 will be used to keep managers and players on a tight budget, while our ambitions and targets remain confined to our comfort zone and every summer our prize assets will be sold-off for huge profit that the manager at that time will get very little access to.
There's an argument that we have already spent well this window, but when you look at the huge exodus removed from the wage bill, plus the prize-money and previous transfer profits already accrued, it's obvious we are not anywhere near as strong and improved as we should be considering all the advantages we hold.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 15:47:53
Pedro is the best in the business at what he does and we're lucky to have him and he's a decent man to boot.

How long are they on contracts for, let’s be honest a contract nowadays means nothing, apart from putting the fee up when they move. Although, probably only makes a big difference if they are getting near the last year.

We won’t see much more of him, the way he’s started this season his play has improved quite a bit. He could play at champions league level or premier level ( where the money is ) . I’d be surprised if he’s with us after this season.

I’m not so sure everything will be forgiven this time Ed . The penny has dropped with a few more this time, realising that we are only trying to be the big fish in the small pond . I can only see the mood becoming worse, especially if we lose at ipox .


{Ed007's Note - You've already got people trying to blame Lawwell etc- even John Kennedy - for Tuesday's fiasco when the blame lies solely at the manager's feet.
I wonder if all the supporters that blame Kennedy for our defensive frailties - even though he isn't our defensive coach - also give him the credit for the likes of Virgil, Tierney & Ajer?}

With regards to Bayo, I get the impression he could be another amido blade . We threw him on there last night he ran straight into the middle, then Lennon could be heard screaming for him to get back on the left of the front three. Then he headed it out for a throw in to them the full width of the pitch.
I’ve said before on here, our policy of trying to unearth good players that no one else is after wastes a load of money. For every 5-6 bad ones we get a good one . Bad strategy again.

This isn’t a new thing with Lennon either, last season against 10 men from sevco he just stood pitch side staring out, changing very little. Let’s be honest they had us on the rack with 10 men until they gifted a goal to us.
In Europe he comes up against more sharper managers so will get found out easier.
