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.

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.



12 Feb 2019 14:11:24
Do you know what happened with regards to our statement about Beaton's performance in last Celtic v Rangers match.

I'm assuming that there is nothing to see here Timmy and it has been brushed under the carpet.


1.) 12 Feb 2019 16:08:41
They had a summit.

{Ed007's Note - The same as Rab C Nesbitt had?}

2.) 12 Feb 2019 16:26:14
Probably a roll over by Celtic As Beaton did not get demoted. I just can't understand why we just except all the crap that comes from the SFA and not demand action like the Servco board would have done.

3.) 12 Feb 2019 17:01:23
Was it a roll and summit?

4.) 12 Feb 2019 17:06:23
The last thing I would want from my Celtic club, is for it to become so vulgar and behave like the low life club from Govan .
I thought we may have had some success as the thug Morellos got 3 match ban and McGregor offered two match ban . Both were long over due but at least last wk, they got what they deserved .
Also for maybe the first time this season the referee in our game on Sunday was not clearly biased against us .
Now maybe we have had tiny steps as a result of Celtic's quiet diplomacy, but I would have been happy if they hadn't appointed Madden to referee our game on Sunday . I doubt that no matter how hard he tries he couldn't be impartial and to be honest I have no reason to believe he will try .
I just hope last week's Compliance meeting and referee's performance were not one offs.

5.) 12 Feb 2019 17:30:26
Ed ah wear a summit! 😂👍.

{Ed007's Note - I used to wear a summit and long johns during the winter when I was working on the tools. The workshop was one of those places you couldn't get a breath in the summer and there was frost on the steel in the winter.
You just know that Timalloy and Old Man Chris are simmit wearers 😉

6.) 12 Feb 2019 17:36:25
I am positive, games involving Madden, Beaton, McLean, baby Dallas and the tag team of Collum and Ross will all be the topic of conversation in the weeks to come for one reason or another.



05 Feb 2019 10:36:18
I would like to share one of my favourite sayings with my fellow posters, which I think is very apt with the current referee bias and corruption within the SFA being discussed at present.

The saying is as follows:

"The term conspiracy theory is often used to prevent institutional analysis. "

When I get accused of being a conspiracy theorist I just outline facts and quote this saying to them and then ask my accusser what their thoughts are on the facts I have presented to them and why they would want to avoid institutional analysis. This is often enough to either shut them up or rethink their current position.


1.) 05 Feb 2019 21:12:07
I have to say that Andrew Dallas is an unique person, Andrew and the rest of us knows his person father Hugh.



05 Feb 2019 00:55:35
I see ex referee Steve Conroy is saying that he was the only top flight ref that supported Celtic and all the rest were Rangers' fans.

The people responsible for this need the boot and we need to start the whole process again and introduce full transparency if we are going to get rid of this bias in future.


1.) 05 Feb 2019 07:20:38
My Celtic supporting brother in law was a low grade referee who trained with the lanarkshire refs. He mentioned there was plenty of young refs in the system good enough to make the top grade but were stopped getting to the top because they supported Celtic.
This was a guy who always sticks up for refs, he would have said baby D got all the decisions correct on Saturday.
I wasnt surprised about what he was saying many years ago, only surprised it was coming from him. that's when I knew it was a really bad situation which won't get better as it stands.
RAW I agree with you, we need a change from the top, so I would replace John Fleming because the standard is really bad under his watch.
They could change the way they run the Lanarkshire referee association which received bad reviews on the Paul Larkin Anyone But Celtic documentary.

2.) 05 Feb 2019 09:18:29
My old man worked with Steve craven. He was the lines man that along with dougie McDonald changed thier minds on giving us a penalty then lied about why.
He told the truth about it and was the only one every punished. Banned from running the line at ANY level of football.
He was a Celtic fan. He told my dad that there is a glass ceiling for anyone that is a Celtic fan in that job.

3.) 05 Feb 2019 10:00:51
Kev83 celtic fans who are officials only get to run the line or referee lower league matches, whatever system the Lanarkshire referees association are applying needs changed forever.
They could do a lot worse than employing Craven and Conroy to help start from scratch.

4.) 05 Feb 2019 10:39:05
When you have the heads of the SFA (Campbell Ogilvie, Jim Farry, Stuart Regan, et al) blatently helping Rangers or hindering Celtic. Then this only proves that this bias/ corruption goes right to the top of our game and we need the clear out to start at the top and filter down.

5.) 05 Feb 2019 11:16:56
With regards to the refereeing topic I am of an age (70) where over the years I have witnessed some obscene decisions against Celtic too many to detail, all by let’s say not Celtic minded officials. On the other side of the coin decisions by Celtic minded officials in favour of Celtic were hounded out.1965 league cup final v rangers Hugh Phillips awarded Celtic two penalties in a 2-1 victory never saw him again. 1967 match v rangers at Celtic Park when Jim Callaghan never ordered John Hughes off sacked.

In the 1980s Kevin O’Donnell allowed a controversial late Celtic winner v Hearts sacked and only found out when my nephew who he taught informed him that it was in the press. James O’Hare a linesman who lives a few doors from me sacked after flagging for a decision that didn’t suit his bosses, sacked. Well done to Steve Conroy for his comments, and have you noticed Willie Collum hasn’t been in charge of a rangers game since they complained about him. don't build your hopes up of it ever changing, after all those years of hoping it would it won’t. oldkilly.

6.) 05 Feb 2019 12:10:58
I agree that things won't change if there is no pressure applied. The only way we will see change if there is a fan movement, comprising of fans from a wide range of clubs. This movement have to put pressure on their clubs, like we saw when they tried to shoe horn newco into the spfl and the issue has to be politicised. It won't be a quick process but it can be done if there are enough motivated people.

7.) 05 Feb 2019 15:21:44
RAW what is needed is someone like Fergus who if still at the club would have those at the top hiding under their desks. oldkilly.

8.) 05 Feb 2019 16:31:24
If I was in charge of Celtic I would hire private investigators to get all the dirt on the sfa and current crop of refs and use it to bring down this house of cards. Then I would use our clubs influence to sway the other clubs to help introduce transparency and put measures in place to ensure this corruption never comes back.



04 Feb 2019 14:52:02
How do you like my team of injured or suspended players.

Ralston Benkovic Ajer Tierney

Ntcham Kouassi

Forrest Rogic Arzani


Subs: Griffiths, Boyata, Lustig

Maybe after Wednesday's game we will have a keeper and our full allocation of subs for the injured XI.


1.) 04 Feb 2019 16:19:38
It's the worst I can remember for injuries at Celtic and it's amazing we still have the talent to field a decent team despite that list; although we still have one or two that still couldn't get a game lol.

2.) 04 Feb 2019 18:53:31
Dont tempt fate RAW lol.

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.

Weah for Griffiths and Burke for Arzani.

She isn't yer maw so nothing to worry about.

That being said if she is intent on doing something, just tell her going out on mothers day is a rip off as they jack the prices up and suggest you go out the weekend before.

Failing that pump her best pal and make sure she catches you. That way she won't want to do anything on mothers day. Then later you can tell her you were drunk and it didn't mean anything.
