On a couple of websites we are linked with the Turkish left back and Joe Gomez of Liverpool. Then today rumours of Chelsea and Munich looking at kt. I know he shot the rumours down but do you think the club are looking to sell kt. I sincerely hope not, I know possible cover is needed if izzy was to go but would a full international (turkey ) would be keen to come to sit on the bench


1.) 08 Jan 2017 22:24:17
A hope not mate, a doubt Rodgers would welcome any interest in kt. N he's a celtic diehard, he will go one day but not anytime soon hopefully. Fingers n toes crossed.

2.) 08 Jan 2017 22:33:58
I hope not but I think in most if not all clubs have a price for each player if they think its crazy money and if he would go I think it would happen but like you guys its just news papers trying to make up a story

Can anyone explain why Roberts doesn't start ahead of Forrest? He just seems to create so much more for us . It's not like Forrest defends that much


{Ed007's Note - I think that's why Lustig is attracting so much criticism, Forrest never gets back to help out.}

1.) 22 Jan 2017 17:10:34
Paddy for me should be given 90mins to see if he can cause problems the whole game and not fade out. Forrest looks the stronger of the two physically and is quicker but lazy. We are missing a creative grafter on the right. Shame gamboa hasn't cut it.

2.) 22 Jan 2017 19:08:03
We really need to get wee paddy signed up pronto. Not another loan deal. Push the boat out and land him on a 4/ 5 year contract.

In the summer I thought moyes was our best option. How wrong was I, really think we dodged a bullet with him and won the prize with br. Fortunately for us, he thought he was too good to come and manage us and he deserved a premier league job. Hope u r enjoying it now moyesy, looks like a terrible decision now . On sky basically whinging that he has no money and anyone he brings in won't make a difference. Get on with it and coach like u r paid to do, just goes to show the over rated premier league isn't paved with gold the way they try and sell it to us. Thank goodness we got Brendan instead


1.) 20 Jan 2017 17:30:23
Football coaching has got to be a lot easier if you have plenty of money to spend. I wonder how well Guardiola and Mourinho would do if they had to manage the likes of Rotherham or Chesterfield.
If Moyes is as good as he thinks he is then he should be able to improve the players at Sunderland and keep them up that way.

2.) 20 Jan 2017 17:32:22
I think he a dick. Always have tbh. Arrogant in his attitude towards the hoops. Hope he's burnt his bridges now tho

3.) 20 Jan 2017 18:13:27
Spot on Quinn-I agree with every point you've made brother-but I was firmly in the Rodgers camp and always had an inkling Moyes was an egotistical fud whose so called Celtic minded credentials were debatable 🍀

4.) 20 Jan 2017 18:59:05
I remember him saying that the reason he failed at Man U was because they told him they were going to buy Ronaldo back as well as Messi. Now it wouldn't take a genius to work out that both them in a team would make a significant impact, but to be stupid enough to come away with that. He basically told everyone himself that he was sh1te

5.) 20 Jan 2017 21:42:13
Definitely dodged a bullet there quinn. It's a good thing our bhoy Desmond canny stand smug huns.

6.) 20 Jan 2017 23:00:44
wasn't that long ago we were asking Coyle, McKay, to give up engerland (and wales) to come to us and were knocked back.

whats fur ye.

7.) 20 Jan 2017 23:34:42
mourinho sets out his team to defend, organise and hit on the counter. Quickest way for Jose to punch ye is call him fat sam with a mare dough

8.) 20 Jan 2017 23:51:17
It's well reported that as a coach he is in the dark ages training and tactic. Didn't want him and admittedly was unsure about BR but I'll hold my hands up. I work with a scouser that has a side in tickets and hotel packages he has built up over the years and he has said on numerous occasions if backed with the right group rodgers would take us to the knockouts. I laughed it off as I thought he was taking the piss engarund type. He wasn't and is adamant. Wtf not? HH



31 Dec 2016 17:55:18
First things first, we have to say congratulations to the team. Playing so many games in such a short space of time and coming out undefeated says so much about our side at the minute . Looking back at today though, for many times it looked like the defending from when Ronnie was in charge. Lost count of the amount of times the two centre backs let the ball bounce or let their forwards come through 10 yards to win the ball easily. Probably just tiredness and maybe a bit of complacency creeping in. Still all things said the bhoys have definitely earned their break, hopefully we will get a couple of decent players in Jan to help us push on again. Great effort, hail hail.


1.) 31 Dec 2016 18:37:30
Forgive me Quinn1888, but so what? It's not the best footballer's book ever, but Paul Lambert told a story in his about how angry he'd been at Dortmund, despite them winning. Andreas Moller, no less, told him to forget it and move on. A win is a win, and I'll take 2-1 every week. Have a great Hogmanay with your family. HH.

2.) 31 Dec 2016 23:26:53
I'd take a win over that mob any day of the week, any way it comes just looking at a bit longer term, still think we could do with another top centre half. Heading towards the champions league qualifier.



26 Dec 2016 09:29:34
Hope everyone had a merry Christmas. I was wondering, if we manage to go on and win the treble this year and smash the league by loads of points. Does anyone think br will start to get bored if there is no significant challenge next season and maybe look to head down south? ! The way we are looking at the minute and with investment over the next few windows we look like we will only get better. At the minute I'm really enjoying us playing and would love to see us go on and get 10 with br in charge. But someone, probably the Huns have to put a challenge into us for him to be kept interested.


1.) 26 Dec 2016 10:20:26
BR's a young man Quinn and I think he'll be here for 10 in a row no question. He knows that will write him into the history books. He's also on record as saying it not about wining trophies or not winning them it's about coaching and developing players. No better infrastructure than Celtic have to do that. I think there's a bigger question there though about Scottish football sorting itself out in order that other clubs can mount a challenge. I think Hearts, Hibs, Aberdeen etc. have that potential. Wouldn't bet on the Huns being around long enough to do it though 🍀.

2.) 26 Dec 2016 11:20:38
Taking his (potential) achievements at Celtic out if it, there is another factor: Liverpool.

Given he has already managed at the top end of the EPL, I don't think he'd leave for a middling team down there. In other words, unlike a lot of players/ managers who see Scotland as a stepping stone, he's already done it. Now, that's not to say he won't go to a European team, or even be offered another crack at the top end of the EPL - though a Man Utd fan, I'd have to ask, who is bigger than Liverpool that he'd (realistically) get?

And on the slim chance a top English/ European come for him, it'll be on the basis of huge (relative) success for us.

3.) 26 Dec 2016 14:19:10
I think Mr Rodgers speaks fluent Italian and Spanish so he may not be looking to the cess pool EPL.

4.) 26 Dec 2016 15:14:02
Quinn it's swings and roundabout and eventually we will be looking up at someone, let's keep our feet on the ground and just enjoy every trophy, every European campaign and every slap down we give the newcomers from govan as they come . it's a work in progress and we are not a great team yet, we are just the closest Scotland has to one, by a huge distance 😊.

Does anyone know of a replacement lined up for John park, after he left there was a couple of names bandied around but since then it's gone quiet.


{Ed007's Note - Park's actual role is now defunct and the Club are overhauling the scouting/recruitment so I don't think there will be a direct Park replacement,}

1.) 10 Dec 2016 07:31:57
Park for me, was masquerading as a Director of Football. With BR being his own man, and previously expressing disproval at working under a role, I don't think we'll see one. A technical director? More likely, but between the expertise of people like Driscoll, McGuinness, McCart and Naylor, we could have those bases covered to a level that is already satisfactory for BR. We'll obviously see in the coming months how much he sees McGuiness and McCart as part of his set up. It's easy to get mixed up between titles and roles though. My guess would that we'll see a new head scout soon enough.

I honestly can't see why he doesn't start ahead of Forrest. Forrest started the season quite well but he seems to be going missing again in games . Roberts always seems to create something for us .

Love to get him in the hoops, could be a bit of a lubo type player for us

If the gerrard rumours were to come true, there's no way McCarthy will be brought in as well. Just couldn't see the outlay on wages. Also I think we will have the same problem getting rid of players that we don't want as we always have. Just look at efe, we may end up paying a few of these off to get rid of them.

I have to admit that griffiths has been unlucky to be dropped but I personally don't think he could play the no 10 role. He doesn't get his head up enough to play killer passes for me in that role like a real no 10. When he got his start last week unfortunately he had one of his nights where it looked like he could play all night and not score, where he was trying so hard. I think Rodgers will give him games and he will need to be ready when called upon, it was only a couple of months ago he was jumping in the managers arms after scoring while dembele looked really out of sorts. I personally think as well he will have to grin and bear it at the minute because if he eventually looks for a move it won't be to a premier league team so it will be a step down. Also we all know dembele won't be here forever . He seems to love playing for us so hopefully the manager can keep him happy.

Without sounding too patronising, the opinions shared by people on here are just that . Opinions . Just because Ed gives his opinion doesn't mean it has to be bang on, how many people on this site including myself have seen a lot of de vries on a regular basis . I would presume not a lot . I personally don't rate Gordon either but if there's a budget left, say for arguments sake of 6 million maybe the manager sees it better judgement to pay a small amount and leave the budget for an outfield player he thinks we need .

Good luck to him, he never let us down at the start of the season. He was unlucky to be out of the team to be honest

Have to admit, the club do a great job of keeping things under wraps. The gutter rags just end up guessing names but I am intrigued as to who we will bring in. Like you I think maybe two more, presumably another centre back as we are releasing a few, but izzy keeps getting linked away as well.

But I thought br wanted a no 10 type in the summer . Hopefully he can pull a couple of exciting players in to add to what he's already built. I'd have thought ed would have had some info but even he seems quiet .

I'd personally be gutted if they accepted that bid, which I don't think for a minute they will. The other point is dembele had multiple options during the summer including spurs who are a much better option than West Ham . After him personally saying he is both very happy at the club and came to get game time, champions league experience and experience of winning things, I personally don't think he would contemplate moving to them. He seems like he has his head screwed on regarding his career and can obviously see us as a stepping stone to a massive club. Not a tin pot club like them. When he leaves us I presume it's going to be a real top side . ( and for bigger money than 20 million
