KT is back in training.

Praise the Lord.

Good news, young Henderson just signed a new 3.5 year deal.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 18:20:49
Fantastic, I am really pleased about this 🍀💚 HH.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 18:35:33
Brilliant business hope he kicks on.



02 Jan 2019 00:34:10
Unless we see players leave this window, thus freeing up some wages and possibly adding to the kitty, I don't think we will see a lot of fee paying transfers this window.

My guess is we will only splash out on a right back and a striker, anyone else that comes in will be a loan deal until the end of the season.

However, I do expect there to be far more going on in the summer as we have a number of players out of contract.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 08:04:03
We just need to learn from the mistakes of the summer and put forward the best fair offer for a player right away put the ball in their court and if they then don’t want to come or ask for more money then they don’t belong at Celtic.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 13:48:08
We need players in but just don't trust Rodgers and his scouting staff, his list of players that he has signed in the last couple of years hasn't ben the best.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 17:02:43
So Teflon, you don’t think Sinclair, Ntcham, Edouard and Dembele prior to his sale proved their worth? Take Compper and Hendry our of the picture which Rodgers signings have failed?

4.) 02 Jan 2019 17:08:34
Read numerous rumours on line that don't seem to go away regarding lee congerton and another guy supposedly leaving and going abroad? Is it congerton who wasn't trusted in the summer? Are the poor signings all Rodgers? One blog says this month's targets have nothing to do with congerton . I'm sure time will tell . But like many have said loads taking a wage and not giving anything back plus benkovic and boyata away in the Summer, probably brown and lustig also . A major rebuild needed starting now and targets identified for the summer departures . Won't be any cl next season with this squad especially if we don't reinforce strongly for the second half of this season and create a gap between us and the chasing pack . This is ours to lose at this point.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 18:40:59
KennyBhoy77, Ntcham and Edourd get pass marks but only just considering the price tag a their inexperience. What about Devries, Gamboa, Mulombo, Hayes, Kouassi, Izzaguire Morgan in addition to Hendry and Compper?

6.) 02 Jan 2019 19:01:44
How can anyone judge Lewis Morgan after a few substitute appearances? Look at Ryan Christie now who has been written off more times than anybody, give the Bhoy a chance, he is a talented young player .

7.) 02 Jan 2019 22:48:31
Why do we ‘need’ players in Telflon? We’ve won 7 domestic trophies in a row.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 22:50:07
Why do we need a major rebuild Delbhoy, we’ve won 7 trophies in a row?

9.) 03 Jan 2019 12:54:00
Morgan isn't ready yet as is the same with Hendry should've both been loaned out and not playing a part for us yet. Maybe they won't make the grade after a loan spell maybe they'll prove their worth like Christie but they was always ones for the future but with injuries to the squad they've had to step in.

10.) 03 Jan 2019 13:24:53
KennyBhoy77, there have been some successful signings. Jury still out on Edouard and Ntcham and we got lucky with Dembele as he had one brilliant season then just gave up playing for us and now can't get a game at his new club. Sinclair has been hot or miss of late. What about Kouassi, Musonda, Hayes, Hendry, Gamboa, Compper, Morgan (could still come good) , De Vries, Izaguirre, Toure and Benyu. Four out of 15 signings have actually be ok but the rest have either been mediocre or non existent, not sure if its Rodgers or the scouting staff but with just over a 25% success rate id say something has to change.

11.) 03 Jan 2019 18:02:52
I also hope that we have back up options.

Big issue in the summer, when top target fell through we didn't have a plan B.

If castagne, bayo, weah / Burke doesn't happen then we move to next target.

After putting calmac at LB on Saturday think we now need to throw a LB into the mix as BR obviously doesn't have faith in his LB options he signed.



11 May 2018 07:33:03
In the rags today, Rangers after John McGinn.

I very much doubt it because Hibs have him valued at 5 million.


1.) 11 May 2018 09:04:52
Thats fine mate because windyass will go for three plus add-ons. In fact some think they should hold out for five. that's the level of rank stupidity we dealing with here.

2.) 11 May 2018 10:13:20
And I’m signing for Man City to replace Aguero.

Keep that to yourself though.

3.) 11 May 2018 10:29:53
Makes sense. The 12mill they didn't spend on Rooney can now be used for mcginn with 7million profit. simples.

4.) 11 May 2018 13:05:32
Ludicrous to value McGinn at anything over 1.5 million.

5.) 11 May 2018 17:14:26
Kev to be fair McGinn could go to a Championship side and Hibs would get £2 to £3mill for him. He is a decent player and still young so spending £3mill in decent championship side is not a risk really. don't know if I fancy him any more than Kouassi and he cost us £3mill.

6.) 11 May 2018 18:52:18
is aguero going to rangers? just as MP is going to man city, Aguero MUST be going to rangers, surely.

7.) 11 May 2018 21:29:14
More chance of me and James McClean joining the Saltcoats orange flute band than there is of John McGinn joining sevco, i know what John said when he heard it, i will give you a clue, the second word was off.

8.) 11 May 2018 23:30:52
Jamesbhoy67 you’ve said before you know him and his family. Have they given any indication that there’s a potential move to the hoops in the summer. I’m hoping maybe a bid of £2m-£3m plus Scott Allan will be enough to do a deal.

9.) 12 May 2018 01:53:45
Didn't think of the Allan chip, it's worth the ask but I don't see it being a big factor. He has no future here and wants to go there. Hibs will be savvy enough to know celtic would take 500k in a heartbeat which isn't much if they are after 4m+ with a few clubs interested. It will come down to where the hair goes and if BR rates McGinn head and shoulders above kouassi as they are fighting for the same spot with brown (ncham, mcgregor, sa and biton are all on the books in there as well) . The only time we would need 2 or 3dmfs on the park is against the best in Europe under the cosh in a 4321 or to see out a 1-0 lead. I'm still not convinced we need to spend 4/ 5million there.

10.) 12 May 2018 09:26:37
James Mc Clean is a sensible and realistic suggestion . Hard working amd commitment wouldn't be doubted on at least a par with what we have .
As for Roberts, time to shoo him off to get caught in the cogs of the PL conveyor belt .

11.) 12 May 2018 13:12:10
Hi Ice Man, there has been no approach from Celtic yet, Cardiff and Burnley had scouts up watching him a few times in the last week.

12.) 13 May 2018 18:44:06
TTTS you might not be too far off with your fellow Derry man signing for Celtic.

13.) 16 May 2018 10:56:45
People all said the same nonsense when we spent about 4.5 million on Scott Brown.

before and after he signed, he's came good though. People forget when you sign the likes of McGinn they then get chance to develop and improve also.

I think he is a good player and what our skillful midfielders like McGregor, Armstrong lack a bit of physical style as well.

Good passer but can dig in and wins possession back as well.



09 Jan 2018 17:12:04
Any chance we will go back for Coetzee?


1.) 09 Jan 2018 21:21:14
I would hope so but I’d really like to sign a first team CH to play beside Compper and KT and however at RB.

Players Ajer can learn from and let the current CH’s all go.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 09:34:31
If Coetzee is fit I would love us to go back for him. He looked fantastic and would cost buttons in today’s market. We spent more on Ciftci and a lot more on other duds over the years. I would go for it as at least the boy looks a player.

He might be able to play in Europe which should be no 1 priority, or our defence will do what they do and feck us up with their mandatory suicide defending.

I have a feeling it will be a last day scramble to get players in. We always talk about getting players in early. We are good at talking like that. Just as we are good at talking about being a CL team. Let’s keave the talking to Sevco and get done what dugs in the street’s wee pups can see need done, and it’s not talking about improving, it’s fecking improving.

I’m optimistic we will this time. I said it last year, the only team who can feck up 10IAR is us. We have form and surely this time the board see and act on what needs to be done.

If we don’t, It will be the a dereliction of duty by the blazers and prove this group are as hestirant and devoid of real ambition as every other board when we have been in a position to move forward.

They will do it, they have no choice, because right now our team has too many weak links. Even for Scotland never mind the CL.

Drawing with that pile of rubbish at home, should leave every board member convinced they need to act.

Where’s that Tin opener?

3.) 10 Jan 2018 12:00:06
Coetzee hasn't kicked all ball yet for his new team. Might be one for the future if he can get fit again.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 16:08:14
Magic we might have some weak links that need strengthened for Europe but we are strong enough to win the spl at a canter. We shouldn't stand still tho, and we wont.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 12:12:13
Steph I agree we will improve. You could not call yourself a Celtic man/ woman and not know we need to improve. The board are no different. I for once am quite optimistic that the board will strengthen, there is absolutely no alternative.

The better we get as a CL team, then the further out of sight at home we become.

My choice for our next manager would be Mareclo Bielsa at Leeds Utd as I think he could achieve great things with our current set of players.

If Leeds don't get promotion I think there is a chance we could get him as well.

However, if we do decide to go with Lennon, I would like to see a Director of Football installed and a top team of fitness and dietry experts.


1.) 02 Mar 2019 15:55:46
They're heading to the epl so there's no chance.

2.) 02 Mar 2019 16:23:36
There's a full sports science department that looks after the diets and all that. Has been since Ronny was here.

3.) 02 Mar 2019 16:43:09
Hopefully they are still there then.

4.) 02 Mar 2019 19:06:47
What baffles me the most if how highly rated Rodgers is as a manager.

Seen people describe Leicester as getting one of the worlds best managers.

Based on what? He's done nothing on that level lol.

He's been one of our better managers domestically but in Europe he hasn't a clue.

I'd rate Clarke or Lennon over Rodgers for Europe any day.

Even with Liverpool he won 1 champions League game against ludogorets with a 90min pen at a field. Then immediately got kicked out of the Europa.

5.) 02 Mar 2019 19:07:09
They are and it's been improved since then.

6.) 02 Mar 2019 20:40:45
Telsa he came a baw hair far winning that league.

7.) 02 Mar 2019 21:28:23
So what kev. In one instance we criticise him for having his head turned by the EPL

Then the next we justify his overinflated reputation simply cos he had 1 good season in it.

What about the seasons after that? What about the fact he got the boot from Liverpool?

The fact he could barely win a game in Europe even with EPL money.

His tactics have only worked when he had far superior players.

He develops players really really well. Tactically he his barely different from Deilas level.

And I'm not even one who wanted his head for leaving. It's a 50/ 50 mess up between him and Lawwell that dragged us down.

Even his domestic success. Last year 82 pts is below the level we need. Lose leagues most competitive years.

This year we dropped lots of pts and performances were often poor.

8.) 03 Mar 2019 03:46:25
Why not just put O on Neil (Neilo) and an A on Lennon (Lennono) . There you have it folks a manager with a European name who ticks all the right boxes .

Including the pisses of the panty wetters box.



26 Feb 2019 22:30:42
My guess is that Rodgers did not leave for the money as he had chances before to go to EPL and didn't take them and Leicester are hardly a big club down there.

Obviously I can't say for certain but my guess is his relationship with his boss deteriorated and eventually jumped ship when the opportunity came.

Anyone that has worked somewhere they hate their boss will know the feeling well and how glad you are to move on and get away from them.

I personally don't have an issue with him leaving but I am disappointed that he chose to do it at a crucial time in the season.


1.) 26 Feb 2019 22:58:55
Spot on we have problems in various areas of the club that need fixed.

Unless we begin to act like a big club again and building properly then we won't be an attractive prospect for any high level player or manager.

2.) 26 Feb 2019 23:04:24
He's not the first Celtic manager that has had problems with their boss - and I am not just talking about Lawell.
Even big Jock was treated shabbily towards the end of his tenure and there have been several other high profile issues over the years.
The Board - or their link-man to the boss has rarely ran smoothly one way or another and I honestly can't see this changing.

3.) 27 Feb 2019 01:04:12
In Brendan’s statement he released today, he says he feels he developed Celtic as far as he could possibly! he loved working with the players wishes them the best, sounds like a dig at the board to me he always said now was the time to take Celtic to the next level when your on top basically strike while the irons hot but Lawwell and co seem happy with domestic domination and maybe a miracle European win.

4.) 27 Feb 2019 05:57:10
Celtic are a big club.
At present the money in the top leagues right now is frightening, we can't come close to competing anywhere near that level. Playing in Scotland, it is what it is.
Spending 50 million still won't get us into the last 16 of the champions league.
We should just concentrate on dominating Scottish football until the day when the tv money dries up or the big leagues get into financial trouble due to the rediculous wages they have found themselves paying out.
Most clubs are in tonnes of debt, yet our club is run brilliantly and some fans are still complaining.
We should sit back and enjoy what is happening to our club with a treble treble and maybe one day the finances in football will have a meltdown and at least it won't involve Celtic.

5.) 27 Feb 2019 13:19:13
Excellent post Leon. 100% correct.



26 Feb 2019 16:14:34
I bet Petrie is spewing that he won't get any compensation now lol.


1.) 26 Feb 2019 16:43:05
Time to get rid of that stupid avatar pal. He's shown utter contempt for us as a fan base. Lennon is the man to get us to 10 in a row.



21 Feb 2019 15:06:07
Nice to see Craig Levein backing the call for refs who don't support Rangers (I know he said OF but we all know they are mainly Rangers) .

Hopefully, more clubs get on board as this the first step, along with making refs confess the club they support and making sure they don't ref a game involving their club.


1.) 21 Feb 2019 15:49:50
Raw I don’t get this getting them to say what team they support they can say any team willy nilly.

2.) 21 Feb 2019 16:50:23
The trouble is Refs are usually interested in football. And most people from Scotland interested in football, support one of the two. So that probably doesn't leave many unless you wanted the same couple of refs for every Celtic or Rangers game. This is where the idea of foreign Refs comes in. That, and the fact that the standard, like players, is generally low due to a small population. But would we be getting the best Italian, German etc Refs or would they be occupied with their own FAs?

3.) 21 Feb 2019 17:03:28
Are we going to ask them what school they went to next? Jeez give this " cheating conspiracy stop the 10 campaign" blabbering a rest it's getting embarrassing!

4.) 21 Feb 2019 17:25:00
I'm with ypu on that Malky, but just discussing the prospect of possible declarations like in England or Germany. In an ideal world it would be a safeguard, I'm not sure Scotland would have the pool necessary to implement it though. No cheating in my eyes, just a poor standard.

5.) 21 Feb 2019 17:46:03
IMO it should just be about comparability a programme that they say they have in place already but we all know it's not working if a referee gets a decision badly wrong demote him to the bottom league and let him work his way back up and bring a referee from a lower league up like a relegation promotion system one goes up one goes down.

6.) 21 Feb 2019 18:45:37
The sheer number of top flight officials who are Rangers fans indicates that there is a "prima facie" case to answer for cheating in the SFA. Unless offcourse you think that Rangers' fans make better referees than those of any other team?

Even if we ignore that fact, we cannot ignore the phenomenon known as "ingroup bias", which is the reason refs should have to declare their allegiances and not be allowed to referee a match involving their own team.

For those who don't know, psychologists have proven that members of a particular group exhibit bias towards other members of their group and this happens both consiously and sub-consiously. Therefore, how can it be right for a Rangers fan to referee a game involving Rangers, especially if it is against Celtic?

Moving on, if we go down the same route as England and stop refs being officials at games involving their own team, then we also need to have a rule that states you will have permanent expulsion if you are later found to support a different team than the one you declared as this would prove you set out to cheat.



14 Feb 2019 10:54:29
If we cast our minds back to 2010 and the infamous match where Dougie McDonald overturned a penalty award and then lied saying the linesman told him to.

A short time after the match Craven, who was the linesman that day, resigned from his position.

A statement was released by the SFA saying he had resigned because of death threats. However, these allegations were never substantiated and it later turned out that Craven resigned because of bullying by Fleming and Dallas.

Now fast forward to last Celtic v Rangers match. Right after the match when the referees impartiality and decisions on the day came under scrutiny, the SFA released a statement to the papers saying he had received death threats.

Like before these allegations were never substantiated and it would appear that this allegation only came about to deflect away from the real issue of bias refereeing.


1.) 14 Feb 2019 11:07:10
There were no death threats. My dad worked with craven when this happened.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 11:08:21
Craven was only one punished because he came out with the truth. He is also a massive Celtic fan.

3.) 14 Feb 2019 12:52:00
Like before, I am sure there were no death threats this time either. I just found it a convenient coincedence that the death threat allegation got rolled out once again, when the officials came under scrutiny for bias.

4.) 14 Feb 2019 13:18:49
He sure is Kev and he’s a decent guy too.

5.) 14 Feb 2019 18:35:17
Agreed RAW, it all went quiet very quickly didn’t it.

Let's think about this rationally. How would the papers know what we have and haven't done in terms of bidding for a player?

I very much doubt the people involved are running to the paper to tell them every intricate part of the process as it happens. Which would suggest the papers are just guessing or are being fed from someone else professing to be in the know but who is also just guessing.

A large chunk of that money will be used to cover our expenses from now until end of season.
