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.

Who would love our club and players to say we are not playing for an organisation or manager who helped Rangers cheat all the other teams in Scotland for over a decade?


1.) 08 Sep 2018 07:41:35
Seems a bit unnecessary, the only ones who will suffer from that is the Scottish fans.

2.) 08 Sep 2018 08:53:31
I'd be very disappointed if the club tried to dictate whether the players could play for their national team.

3.) 08 Sep 2018 09:26:49
I’m very serious when it comes to the National team and I would agree ONLY until McLeish gets sacked, we need players to go on strike until he is sacked because he is running our country and national team into the ground, we need him gone before it’s too late and before we suffer even more embarrassing defeats in the nations league when we all know with the right manager, our team are a match for anyone with the right formation and players starting. Once we get a manager who knows how to actually manage a team and play modern football and gets the belief going, I’m sure everyone in Scotland will get behind the team again despite the corrupt organization. there is nothing we can do about that, our players love playing for there country. but right now they don’t under that truly awful manger who doesn’t know how to set up a team.

4.) 08 Sep 2018 09:56:36
I can't say I agree as I have no interest in the national team. It is Celtic all the way for me and it angers me that our club are not bringing the SFA to task for their years of collusion in Rangers EBT scheme and granting of European Licences.

5.) 08 Sep 2018 12:23:15
I can see both sides of this debate; and although I am firmly not a fan of any International football and see it as a hindrance to our already, long and difficult season and a potential
injury hazard - I appreciate any Celtic player who wants to represent his country - no matter what nationality.
As far as the Scotland set-up is concerned I have a bitter memory, as a kid being taken to Hamden and watching my hero Jinky - who was unceremoniously hauled off and replaced by Wullie Henderson - on the vitriolic demand of the 'Rangers End'.

Over the years there has been long controversy and extreme biased shown by the SFA against our club - or in favour of another and Celtic, I suppose are in a precarious position as far as vetoing the national side and the repercussions from Uefa/ FIFA?
on another smaller, maybe petty point I could never enjoy or support a team managed by a cheat and featuring runts like Naismith. The underlying, murky currents of Scottish football will always run deep because of the country we live in and it's roots.

6.) 08 Sep 2018 13:19:45
El Chris are u seriously saying if Scotland had a good manager they would be a match for anyone. Hahaha away n don't talk gash. If the celtic boys didn't play they wouldn't beat San marino.

7.) 08 Sep 2018 15:22:14
Stephbhoy2, nah never said that my point is with OUR players aka Celtic, we are a match for anyone, they carry the team and make them play better, but to do that they have to have the right formation and tactics to do so as Brendan does for us weekly in the league. hence why we need a new manager who knows modern football, without our players the Scotland team is a mess bar a few played like Robertson etc. I never bothered with the National team in years or even growing up but when we had our group off players come through that done the invincible season like KT Griffiths Forrest Armstrong Brown McGrgeor even Gordon, it gave me hope our country could take us to a World Cup. sadly that never happend with another joke off a manager, but not as bad as Mcleish who is completely bonkers.

8.) 08 Sep 2018 18:24:59
It's a good job most of us don't take International Football serious as we have two joke International teams we would support just now . Martin O'Neil's R O I is as bad a team just now that ever seen playing Senior Football . We all know when M O N took over Celtic he was brilliant could do no wrong . There were signs before he left his standards were slipping . During the spells he had at Sunderland and Villa his reputation slipped further.
However nothing could prepare the R O I fans for what they have to suffer when they watch their team now . Everyone knows that RO I isn't blessed with a team of stars but surely they are entitled to watch a well drilled team that knows what they should do and can create an odd bit of flair . He appointed Roy Keane as his assistant who seems to offer nothing, only fight with a couple of our better players . One of them Archer has left the squad, R O I have a very good youngster Irish parents he was born in London but he has played for R O I at all under age levels, Declan Rice, he has played 3 Senior Friendlies. England now talking to him and with Keane M O N shambles he is likely to switch to them .
Scotland are also in the doldrums and there is no doubt McLeish hasn't the ability to win anything without benefiting from EBTs . Again like R O I his team has no shame and no signs of having any worthwhile work done with them.

9.) 09 Sep 2018 00:00:31
It's a section of the tartan army that ruin it and the guys above. A decent percentage hate the fact that the spine of the team and many of the good players in the squad have been involved or are currently celtic players. Fact. Boyata getting booed. There might have been the odd tim in that group but you can safely assume it was the rangers or anti celtic masses that contributed most to that noise. It was the only player on the park they could get away with hounding without being "unpatriotic". Give me strength. I hate going to Scotland games or even going to pubs with the mixed fan base. Or even having to listen to the awful patter of the ones that prefer the highland games or rugby chat about football. I avoid this where possible. I'll also confess to being a hypocrite as if i was in the position that I was called upon to wear the jersey, I would. I'd fight and battle for my own reasons on that park as many of our players have done. It's the knowing that a large section would rather you weren't there that would push me on.
Nothing is going to change. Celtic will continue to supply the national side with its players. Our youth set up and transfer dealings will see to that. As long as our players risk injury by playing, mgmt and the powers above bend and twist the rules, our players merely tollerated and shown zero respect then I cannot and will not waste my time backing this pantomime of h. unnery.

10.) 11 Sep 2018 16:49:31
A Celtic fan has a fair cheek moaning about the filth booing Boyata playing for Belguim against Scotland . It isn't that long ago since the mouths amongst the Celtic support booed him because in their stupid opinion he wasn't good enough to wear the Celtic shirt, yet within 6 months he was playing well for Belguim in the World Cup finals.



02 Sep 2018 10:14:30
Any idea what pubs are open earl the day. Five minutes from gallowgate at the moment. Cheers.




08 Aug 2018 19:46:21
Confirmed that McGinn has signed for Villa.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 20:42:23
We'll live to regret that. Will be really interested to see who we go for as its the one position we actually need after Armstrong leaving rather than the other areas we need to strengthen.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 20:43:48
Yeah I think Lawwell better redeem himself here.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 20:49:36
all this episode has shown is that the board have just shafted this manager like every other manager before him .

4.) 08 Aug 2018 22:26:50
Mcginn would not have walked into our team . He went to villa on guaranteed game apparently . Let's flip that . If we bid 4 mill, and didn't guarantee game time, would he have turned us down if villa never came in? Celtic haven't confirmed we matched any villa offer .

5.) 08 Aug 2018 23:38:14
Lennon confirmed we matched the offer. If we had offered £3mill up front he would gave come. PL thought he would come to us in jan. Now he us with a championship side. Shows you how much he sees in SPL.



01 Aug 2018 10:10:09
Must admit that I would like a new CB and RB brought in before the window closes but only if they are better than what we have already.

That being said, if we don't sign anyone before the window closes I will not be that bothered. The reason I say that, is that I believe we already have a very strong squad who look well up for the upcoming season and should blow everyone away in Scotland.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 11:01:59
I have to disagree. We need at least one defender in my opinion. Hopefully Boyata has come back the same confident player we saw at the WC and I’d like to see another right sided CB to play alongside him and Ajer as our strongest 3.

2.) 01 Aug 2018 11:08:32
Rodgersatwork, I really don’t like the transfer policy but it’s never going to change. This window we have had a net spend of about £1 or 2mill. Sold Armstrong for £7m and brought Eddy in for about £8 or 9. We are weaker than last season but don’t know how the Bhoys out on loan last season will add to the squad. We also have about £700k back from VVD, so we are not spending any money. The idea in most clubs unless they are in trouble is to start the season stronger than the one before. Understand we have wages to pay and they are probably more than last season, but it always seems that the Board are worried to death about not making CL and want to keep fund in the bank in case we don’t make it. Moving forward, getting CL qualification is going to be difficult as it is now so what way do we go. I think we need 2 quality additions and we would get qualification and maybe a few more points which means more money, but it’s not going to happen. BR has done a great job with the players but these is only so far he can take them.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 12:00:53
We still have 30 days of the window to go, we will strengthen but it isn't easy bringing in quality players.
Once the English window closes next week I believe we will see a lot of movement.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 12:08:37
We got £7m from VVD not £700,000 .

5.) 01 Aug 2018 12:34:41
And remembet we got money for Erik so we haven't spent anything which doesn't bother me at all. Patience is the key not spending for the sake of it.
If u don't think we are stronger than last season then u don't know much about football cos we clearly are.
We have Morgan to come in, good back up for CG and Eddy who was a non runner this time last year is now a top player.
Yes RB could b an issue, also how many CHs do we need lol.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 16:51:01
Rayman, BR has come out and said we ate weaker than last season and he might know a wee bit more about it than you. Do you think Morgan is better than Paddy? Armstrong away and so far not replaced so we are 2 quality players down on the same squad as last year so how are we stronger? Enough to win the league but never stronger.

7.) 01 Aug 2018 18:01:29
No he hasn't Johnny, I challenge u to find that quote lol.

8.) 01 Aug 2018 19:24:18
Ryman that's what he said. FACT. If you missed it go google it.

9.) 01 Aug 2018 19:27:51
Rayman this morning in the scotsman. Just google brendan rodgers dayz celtic are weaker this season. See what comrs up. Keep up son, facts are facts.

10.) 02 Aug 2018 09:12:18
rayman99 Brenda said himself the squad isn't as strong as last year's .

11.) 02 Aug 2018 09:20:14
“Our job is to improve that. You also need to strengthen. We aren’t as strong a squad as what we were last year.

“We have lost players. I think everyone can see that, but the club know that as well. We all push to try to get in the best quality that we can to make us better.

"The players that we have need help. We are down on what we were. ”.



01 Aug 2018 10:06:45
Loved Rodgers wee dig at Rangers when he said he could have added 10 players to his squad if had wanted but he wants to get quality players instead.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 10:47:54
I'm glad we're going down this route and not bowing to media and fan pressure of signing anybody for the sake of it. The amount of signings we have made in the past in the 2 million pound bracket and they've not been good enough is frightening. Boerigter, Pukki, Fortune, Hooiveld and that's without thinking. We are at the stage now a 2 or 3 million pound player is not going to improve us in any position unless we are very lucky and find a gem. Would rather one 10 to 15 million pound proven quality than 4 or 5 maybes, probably not good enough players.

2.) 01 Aug 2018 12:29:24
Stevie. I can't agree with you about this transfer policy.
Johnnymac put it perfectly when he said that we should be trying to start a season with a stronger playing squad than we finished the previous one.
Last season Sevco scored more goals than us, our winning margin in the league was well down on the season before, and our performances in Europe were an embarassment. To be going into this season with a weaker squad is just stupid in my opinion.
I don't accept the line that the only players that would improve us would cost £20-30m, that is just a cop out. When I look at clubs all over the place, most of them are adding to their squads. They aren't all paying personic prices.
We have qualified for the Champions league for the last 2 seasons, if we refuse to use some of the money we have earned from that to strengthen us, then I would rather we didn't qualify as the heavy defeats are too painful to watch.
Qualifying for the Champions league, building hotels, playing Rugby matches at Celtic park, are all well and good but the most important thing about our club should be the playing squad. We have been spoilt domestically these last 2 years, but that's not a reason to get complacent. The club should always try to get the best players possible within the budget they have. I don't believe they go anywhere near that.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 13:38:03
I firmly believe Gerry that we would pay up to possibly 15 million if a quality player becomes available and most importantly is willing to come to Scotland . How many of the many 2 to 3 million pound players we've signed in the last 6 or 7 years have been a success? We did go through a purple patch with Van Diyk, Forster and Wanyama but we've had probably a dozen duds at the same time costing us a lot of money. You say there are many clubs adding to their squads without spending a fortune, You're right but what kind of quality are they adding? Not the quality we need to go to the next level I'm afraid.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 14:08:36
Stevie. I believe that that the club has become too focussed on making a profit out of players rather than the main aim of a transfer which is to strengthen the team.
I am all for bringing players on and improving them, but I don't accept that there are no players out there who would improve our squad that would be within our budget.
We must be the unluckiest team in the world if this is the case.

5.) 01 Aug 2018 16:58:02
Stevie just to add to gerryc point. We also netted £7mill from VVD to Liverpool
I thought it was £700k, but it was £7mill, so we are about £6mill up on transfers since January. There are some good £5mill players out there that could come into the first team, so if we bought 2 then our net spend since January would be £4mill. Understand wages etc but there are players such as Hayes etc that we should punt and reduce the wage bill. Too many squad players when 2 decent players changes the whole complexion of the playing staff.

Looks like Rodgers intends to go for it as there is little defensive cover on the bench and 5 attacking players.

Gazza should never even be considered for our hall of fame. Most of the time he was playing in Scotland he was a fat person. I also remember his running style of high arms and elbowing people in the face on a regular basis. Yes he did produce the odd bit of magic but often the game passed him by because he was so unfit.

Laudrup would be far more deserving of being inducted if he isn't already.

Salzburg are a top quality side and one we should be modelling ourselves on. You will see some of their players get big moves to the top leagues in coming years.
