More news coming out today that kt has agreed wages with Everton, I wish he or the club would just come out and say, no I’m staying at Celtic . Until this is done the rumours are going to keep coming about him leaving. I’m starting to think he may be off 👎.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 16:04:01
Who is the consultant saying this and what are his credentials in terms of this particular transfer? Because if he is involved in any way he shouldn't be discussing it in public. If he isn't involved, how would he know what's going on?

2.) 03 Jul 2018 16:48:19
Daily record site had it on their podcast, someone from the premier league apparently . It now looks like it’s been regurgitated onto another site. Surely if wages were to be discussed it wouldn’t involve the premier league, surely it would just be Everton and kts advisers / agent.

3.) 03 Jul 2018 16:56:30
Politely put Kev. id have just said get a grip. , Everton? We know, BR knows, he knows even the Sevies know KT, if he leaves, will be to a major club.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 16:57:15
Really hope this isn’t true. Scotsman has it in print 😩.

5.) 03 Jul 2018 17:15:29
Tabloids talk some bull, not concerned about interest from Everton at all! Not saying KT definitely won't go this transfer window but unless another CL team bids for him, he'll still be playing in the hoops next season! Cracking player worth every penny of his 30mil valuation, considering his outstanding form, age and lengthy contract, he's on route to be another Celtic legend!

6.) 03 Jul 2018 17:20:31
Don't think he'd be playing right now if this were true.

7.) 03 Jul 2018 17:59:41
Lol looked at the Record Podcast! What a bunch of nothing. No story.

8.) 03 Jul 2018 22:14:44
In the unlikely event he goes, they'd better be spending at the very least, half the cash on a couple of decent signings. One a left back obviously.

9.) 04 Jul 2018 10:16:04
He needs to shoot it down. It’s going on too long. I have no problem believing Lawell would sell his granny, but KT leaving o can’t see. He needs to make a statement. If it’s nonsense meant to unsettle us it has to be put to bed.

{Ed007's Note - There's nothing to shoot down, why should KT comment on idle speculation and made up stories?}

10.) 04 Jul 2018 10:31:27
He is at the front of the new picture advertising the new away too. That in itself doesn't meaning anything however wouldn't imagine Celtic would use KT if he was going a week later. He also started today's friendly which I would highly doubt would have happened if a deal was in place, from both the players and Everton's view point. Just the daily rag trying to stir up crap again. In my opinion however I would agree with comments before that it would be much better if the player or club just came out and set the record straight.

11.) 04 Jul 2018 10:32:50
Have you not got to agree a fee with the club first BEFORE uyou talk contracts with players? 😂



12.) 04 Jul 2018 10:35:43
Ban them.

13.) 04 Jul 2018 10:38:08
Look at the number of posts in here and other sites. The fans are getting anxious. I absolutely don’t think he will go. It’s rubbish stirring but I do think they should nail it dead.

14.) 04 Jul 2018 12:44:53
Armstrong modelled the new home top.



30 Jun 2018 13:38:28
Ed, have you heard of any interest in Pato, with a couple of tweets hinting from him. Could possibly be interested in coming back to Europe, I think Brendan was interested in him while at Liverpool . Could be a Lubo type we all love to see and possibly a replacement for paddy ( skill wise ) . He would definitely get fans excited.


{Ed007's Note - Isn't he going to Panathinaikos?}



20 Jun 2018 19:13:22
From what I have seen of Schar whilst at Basel and more so through the Swiss side he definitely looks like a player that would improve us. With the rumours of us being after him it makes me wonder why we never done the deal before the World Cup. I seem to remember we were linked a month or so ago, but surely if he has a decent tournament we will find ourselves outbid financially with wages to a mid range prem
team especially for the relatively low buying price.


1.) 20 Jun 2018 19:55:19
We know by now how Celtic do there business. If you heard it as a rumour, and its not happened a day or so later then it is and will remain a rumour. PL and BR keep their cards close to their chest. We won't find out thru rumours. although its fun to speculate.

2.) 20 Jun 2018 20:01:44
The rumours first came from those bogus websites. It's been a quiet week so the s*n decided to regurgitate it, and the rest of the rags have followed suit. Every single article refers to 'reports'. Unfortunately this one looks like column filler.

3.) 20 Jun 2018 20:25:54
Shame as he looked decent.

4.) 20 Jun 2018 21:53:28
I wouldn't disagree to be fair.

5.) 20 Jun 2018 22:02:33
He's a good player Quinn. And at the 'reported' 3.5m, would be a good signing. Anything that originates from those certain few sites though tends to be BS.

6.) 20 Jun 2018 23:02:03
Don’t really see us signing him, he was good against Brazil, so that ends our chances.

7.) 21 Jun 2018 08:39:40
@Quinn1888 - If there actually is an interest I very much doubt it's Celtic's fault the deal hasn't been sorted and much more likely that the player would want to use the WC to put himself in the shop window and assess his options afterwards.

8.) 21 Jun 2018 09:48:36
Has anyone noticed since commons left there has been no mole in cp. Is that a coincidence. Your guess is as good as mine.

9.) 21 Jun 2018 11:01:12
Guessing is not a science. I’m guessing.

10.) 21 Jun 2018 12:31:45
Lawwell will wait to the last possible minute to sign the cheapest possible players.

11.) 21 Jun 2018 13:55:23
Like he done with edouard jb67?

12.) 21 Jun 2018 19:45:11
And Sinky and Ntcham. Some folks always negative.

13.) 21 Jun 2018 23:06:29
Why do some posters continue to make fools of themselves, I hate to read a poster who continues to post nonsense about Peter Lawwell. Maybe Mr Lawwell did something nasty on Jamesbhoy67 in the past.

14.) 23 Jun 2018 11:50:21
It was already agreed to sign him last season before the 17th of june, keep up kev.

15.) 23 Jun 2018 11:47:00
No one is being negative shug, they are just stating facts about how lawwell goes about his penny pinching prudent business plan each year, he waits to see if we qualify for the champions league before going about most of his business.

16.) 23 Jun 2018 11:48:16
Oh, how the tide has turned. Not so long ago PL was going to be hung, drawn and quartered by most on here. Guy has been superb for Celtic.

17.) 23 Jun 2018 11:49:30
lawwell does the same thing every year, he waits on champions league qualification before he does most of his business.



28 Aug 2017 11:06:10
Ed, I read this morning something about us and skertl getting linked. Have you heard anything on this? Not loads of pace but decent experience and no nonsense defender? He's a safer bet than boyata I think .


{Ed007's Note - I know that some places were linking us with him along with Man City ( I know but remember they're after Jonny Evans), Newcastle and Swansea earlier this summer but if he was leaving Fenerbahce I think it would have happened by now.
Skrtel's only been in Turkey a year but he was being linked with a move away because Fenerbahce breached FFP Regs last year and it was thought he would need to be sold but with only days to go it doesn't look like that's true though that's not to say a move won't materialise.}

1.) 28 Aug 2017 12:59:22
If it were to happen ed, what's your opinion? An improvement?

{Ed007's Note - Definitely.}

2.) 28 Aug 2017 13:03:03
Afternoon ED I've been sleeping the day due to being night shift last night just wondering where we are at with PR one report says he's in or will be here for medical with Loan deal pending other report say possible permanent deal looming have I heard anything? Plus CH Rodgers knows too coming in possible can you shed in sense to these reports cheers.

{Ed007's Note - I'd love it to be a permanent deal for Roberts but unless the player himself has made a major u-turn it's going to be a loan. All the talk about why you'd need a medical for a loan is just nonsense, every signing goes through a medical even youngsters.
I've not heard anything on the CB situation but it seems to be Skrtel people are talking about.}

3.) 28 Aug 2017 13:46:25
I don't really rate him as a CB thought he was a bit suspect at time but who am I BR knows best seen someone talking about a striker too any news on that front ED?

{Ed007's Note - Maybe Odsonne Edouard.......

4.) 28 Aug 2017 13:55:05
Who's that ED? Sorry.

{Ed007's Note - He's a 19-year old striker from PSG who spent last season on loan at Toulouse. Read up on him - the GB could have a field day with their banners lol}

5.) 28 Aug 2017 14:09:16
Cheers ED I will could possible the trip to France from BR maybe he was trying to do some shopping?

{Ed007's Note - Maybe.}

6.) 28 Aug 2017 14:12:08
I've heard of this kid, think he can play out on the right wing aswell a decent prospect and with PSG signing Neymar and supposedly agreeing a loan deal for Mbappe, it could open the door for him to leave.

7.) 28 Aug 2017 14:24:24
Is there any substance to the psg lad ed or just an opinion from yourself . I think skertel and jozo would be a good tough tackling pairing together . Kenny Miller wouldn't know which way to turn 😂.

{Ed007's Note - It was a name that was mentioned to me in a conversation I had this morning and he certainly ticks all the boxes as a 'project' for Rodgers.}

8.) 28 Aug 2017 16:02:47
Please not Skrtel - he's an appalling footballer and I use the term lightly because he's really nothing more than a thug.

9.) 28 Aug 2017 16:55:37
Heard that if PSG don't bring in £150 million in transfer fees before end of window they will be in breach of ffp rules so they may be looking to offload a few fringe players.

10.) 28 Aug 2017 18:29:44
Are we talking that useless bombs are who used to play for Liverpool, Skirtle?

He would be our Senderos.

I don't believe in God, but I'm asking him to take a day aff from helping actors win oscars, nicely, to make this bull.

I actually hate the way he plays fitba.

And Skurtles a nightmare too.

11.) 28 Aug 2017 18:30:45
Not cheap enough for us. Unless they gave hundreds of players. Won't affect us.



08 Jan 2017 21:36:52
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

Is griff still carrying an injury? He’s not in the squad again, I may have missed it but did he even travel?


{Ed007's Note - No he didn't travel.}

1.) 10 Jul 2018 16:29:03
Problem with his thigh according to the gaffer.



27 Jun 2018 06:35:08
A little more to get some quality in there . Sorry it’s over two messages.




27 Jun 2018 06:34:29
With the news that we are looking to sign Moses from hull on a free, after not playing for two years, it got me thinking. Generally most people think our weakest element is our defence, it especially gets highlighted if we make it to the champions league where we get torn apart at times. Why is it we never seem to want to spend on defence. We fell lucky with vvd but that rarely happens and I feel we just need to spend.


1.) 27 Jun 2018 07:07:27
There are good defenders out there within our budget but we just don’t spend at all. Edouard was signed broke our transfer record. But we will sign another 2 players at the most I bet. Team needs freshened up and we just won’t get that. Again.

2.) 27 Jun 2018 08:33:39
After the disappointment with Compper and Gamboa, I would have hoped we would have just went that extra yard and bought a quality defender that wasn't a risk or a gamble?

3.) 27 Jun 2018 11:27:55
Exactly my thoughts OAB.

4.) 27 Jun 2018 11:37:58
Where did anybody say taking this guy means we don’t buy other defenders? Do you honestly think Celtic would take such a risk with literally tens of millions involved in a player who could break down?

Behave yersels. If he makes it we have a good player for eff all. If he doesn’t he won’t be the only RB. We will strengthen in defence, a possible £60m to be had won’t be rushed.

Defenders will come. Other than Moses.

5.) 27 Jun 2018 13:18:58
OAB what makes you think we won’t? Teams aren’t limited to one defender per window.



22 Jun 2018 10:56:21
Does anyone think we are still after a playmaker, Brendan obviously wanted another in due to him loaning the Chelsea lad but obviously that never worked out for either party. I appreciate we have Rogic there but we had him last season and we still signed the Belgian .


1.) 22 Jun 2018 12:12:54
100% Quinn, think he was looking for an adaptable player who can play the wings Aswell. People speak of Mcregor playing out wide but he’s better in the No10 role. I’d imagine a new winger will come in. Bamba has been mentioned but think it’s just talk. That would be a really good signing.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 13:30:45
Remember Christie is back in the squad and he can play there.

So it really all comes down to whether or not Rodgers sees Christie as a viable option. If not then I would imagine we will get someone in and ship Christie out.

3.) 22 Jun 2018 14:23:38
Christie is nowhere near the answer.

4.) 22 Jun 2018 16:25:07
Hes Ok. But he's nae Lubo. that's the class level we need back.

5.) 22 Jun 2018 17:31:39
Lubo is a rare kind of player. If only we had players of that class available to us. After all he was a magician.

6.) 22 Jun 2018 18:30:48
So far we go to the Austrian training camp weaker than we were end of the season. Disappointed so far. Maybe there are 2 or 3 players being looked at but we need them in sooner than later. Need some quality additions. No more projects please.

7.) 22 Jun 2018 22:08:59
We certainly are not weaker than we were at the end of season . Players are well rested and as most of them are in their early 20's they will be improved in strengths and skills and knowledge of playing Brendan's way .
Of course we are weaker the four who are at World Cup, but that is only temporary .
Two or three that we're starting to push towards the bench may well make regular appearances this season from the word go.
We won't strengthen very much on the transfer market.

8.) 23 Jun 2018 12:07:02
If we are looking to sign another Lubo, then expect disappointment - he's a one off. I just hope that despite the rumours, Armstrong stays. I'll be gutted to see him go regardless of the fee.



20 Jun 2018 19:13:22
From what I have seen of Schar whilst at Basel and more so through the Swiss side he definitely looks like a player that would improve us. With the rumours of us being after him it makes me wonder why we never done the deal before the World Cup.

team especially for the relatively low buying price.


1.) 20 Jun 2018 21:34:13
Quinn 1888 Remember the buying club usually cannot decide the date that the deal is made . In fact it is in both the selling club and the player himself, to hold back on deal for a while to see if they can get a deal that suits club or player better .
This definitely applies if we hope to buy at a relatively low price.

Like ed said as long as kt wants to stay I say keep him. How are we meant to build a team if we constantly sell off our best players. How for instance can we try and keep hold of Dembele for another season or two if we are selling off the better players. Plus, does anyone on here realistically think the club are going to let him spend all the funds we get for kt. I’d doubt it, also as most people have said on this forum, that we have needed a new right back for the last couple of seasons yet we haven’t done it. Maybe filling full back/ wing backs is not easy especially when you have to replace a top quality one for a smallish sum in terms of what other countries teams can pay.


{Ed007's Note - I think people looking for a RB to replace Lustig are going to be very disappointed, Lustig will be first choice RB next season.}

I’d be very surprised if this came off, not due to the club but paddy himself. On his interview he basically said he’d gone as far with the club as he could and wanted to try and get a premier club . Staying with us would be the safe option, id be surprised if that’s changed when it’s very early in the transfer window and there’s loads of time for other clubs to come in for him.

He’s young and a bit inexperienced, but no point getting on his back. At the end of the day we signed him from Dundee, he may have shone there but to do it for us consistently is a bit tougher. We have to expect it when we sign lads from other Scottish sides, I can’t think of any recently where they came in and improved us straight away . They all need a bit of time, I’d hazard a guess it will be the same with Mcginn when he comes. A bad game for Hibs / Dundee is not quite the same as having one for us.

I’d agree bob, it’s def not the manager, he comes across as decent to be fair. I don’t even mind the ex players that much but it’s the actual non football commentators that drive me crazy. Even my mrs said they drive her crazy and she’s only in the room reading a book 😂.

I’d hate to see kt leave but the rumours of a bid are getting stronger and I’d personally be surprised if the club turned down 25-30 million . This would then leave it under immense pressure to make a decision. Personally I’m more worried now than I was last season when a few clubs were sniffing around . I would personally prefer the club to come out and say we don’t need to sell, he’s just signed a long term contract and we are both happy. Unfortunately they didn’t do much to deter the rumours.

I really hope he stays for 10 at least but Brendan not batting it away has caused me a slight concern. On the other hand it could just be a bit more negative news spun by the media to knock us off our game . Since Gerrard has came in they are salivating that there’s a chance we could be beaten by them this year . All links with players leaving this season and hardly any mention that we have already broke our transfer record . Love to see us sign another two or three top quality players to put them back in their box.

Ed, no I don’t want Ntcham replaced. That is in fact my point in that I don’t think we need Mcginn . I just can’t see where he fits in to the starting 11 regularly. Some people in here just want Mcginn as he is a Tim and wants to play for us.
On another point I read today about a possible loan for McTominay, have you heard anything? ( again I don’t think it’s what we need but it was on another site )


{Ed007's Note - So we lose Armstrong and don't replace him in the squad and Kouassi is probably going out on loan what happens if Ntcham or Brown need a rest or get injured, who comes into the team?
Some people don't want to sign McGinn because he isn't a fancy named foreigner and 'only' coming from Hibs. McGinn is already a better footballer than Scott Brown was at that age and is even probably a technically better and more skillful player than Brown has ever been.
What do you think of the Edouard signing, where does he fit into the starting 11 if Dembele stays and do you think we needed to sign him?}
