Ed any truth in Oliver Burke?


{Ed007's Note - It seems a strange one to me but going by what's being said down south it looks like we have made an enquiry for Burke - I just don't see why we would. WBA want him to go on loan for game time so why would he come to be Forrest's understudy and why do we need him when we have Johnston who can play either wing?

1.) 01 Jan 2019 14:33:55
If true would he play on the left and be understudy to Sinclair or is Sinclair for the off?

2.) 01 Jan 2019 15:10:55
Probably be selling Forrest to balance the books.

3.) 01 Jan 2019 20:04:11
Could it be Sinclair and Johnstone on the left with Forrest and Burke on the right?
With Morgan maybe going out on loan?

4.) 01 Jan 2019 14:54:55
Unless Johnstone is being preferred to play on left as understudy to Sinclair and Morgan being loaned out ed?

{Ed007's Note - I'd be surprised - and a bit peed off - if we're loaning in players to cover loaning out our own youngster. If so send Johnston down to WBA, if we're going to waste time developing their players that can't get a game then the least they can do is return the favour.}



03 Jul 2018 01:27:59
Celtic offered £1.5 million but Hibs want closer to £4 million I'd offer £2.5 plus Allan and Benyu on loan let him get experience in the SPL.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 03:03:03
Need to make this happen before some ELF team comes in and offers the asking price.
Not that I think he is better than Brown and Ntcham but we need quality backup in case of injuries.

2.) 03 Jul 2018 08:45:57
He will be ours soon. kids Celtic daft. Plus Celtic have proven we are the place to be as a stepping stone. Id agree with above, we won't offer much more cash but if we can add Allen itll happen.

3.) 03 Jul 2018 09:38:00
Shug Petrie is a known for playing hardball with negotiations. Would wager the leak about transfer came from the Hibs end trying to create other intrest.

McGinn is Hibs biggest asset. This transfer is a major part of lennons budget. Can see it dragging on. Unless Celtic pony up asking price straight away.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 10:16:36
He only has a year left balls in mcginn court.

5.) 03 Jul 2018 12:55:23
Its nothing to do with John Mally, its up to celtic and hibs to agree a fee, John is dying to sign for us, it will be sorted soon.

6.) 03 Jul 2018 16:30:45
James it'll happen just think John holds the upper hand a few will be agreed hibs can't let his contract run down.



11 Apr 2018 17:42:53
Ed have you herd anything about us being interested in Abel Hernandez? Not sure if I'd take him. And apparently Hull want to take Ryan Christie.


{Ed007's Note - I seen the Italian press are reporting that us and Bologna are in for Hernandez but I don't believe it. Christie won't be going anywhere.}

1.) 12 Apr 2018 12:40:16
Came a bit further now, apparently we’ve offered him a 3 year deal?

2.) 12 Apr 2018 14:05:31
Would love this hope it happens but I'm doubtful absolute quality striker great in the air also fingers crossed.

3.) 12 Apr 2018 17:17:03
He is injury prone like Rogic therefor should only get a pay as you play contract.

4.) 12 Apr 2018 19:01:24
The same rubbish site reporting it also reporting he isn't interested.

5.) 12 Apr 2018 20:08:49
He did well in Italy but his stock has plummeted since he chased the money with Hull

Another player wasting his talent choosing a better wage rather than glory.

6.) 13 Apr 2018 00:03:29
The linking us with Hernandez is complete and total bollocks . Don't believe anything like that, that you read for everyone that comes to fruition twenty and more remain a figment of someone's imagination.

7.) 13 Apr 2018 01:39:22
Shug kevT and oldman so who we going to sign then? Yous know who we're not signing including this lad so who let's have it I'm all ears?

8.) 13 Apr 2018 16:59:12
KevT what glory? He left a Palermo side who were poor on the pitch and facing financial struggles to play in the EPL (they signed Kyle Lafferty remember) . What player would do any different? It’s obvious he made the smart choice when you see Palermo stuck in Serie B.

9.) 14 Apr 2018 18:50:57
A few serie a clubs where wanting him back then as he was highly rated

Pretty sure Roma where very keen so like I said chose money and now will end up regretting it playing for a scabby mid table championship team.

10.) 14 Apr 2018 23:06:03
Where did dembele come from mid table championship same as Hooper.



22 Jan 2018 10:01:19
Ed is there any chance or even any truth in us going for Subotic? This lad is exactly what we need.


{Ed007's Note - Sadly not mate, it's just wishful thinking and it makes a good click bait story.}

1.) 22 Jan 2018 10:32:47
The way the gaffer is talking the CB position is filled unless someone leaves.

2.) 22 Jan 2018 13:02:43
Afternoon EDs I see reports today that an EPL side are looking at Hendry as a signing is this just story made up to put the pressure on Celtic to move along with there plans or Jen up?

{Ed007's Note - Hendry's been watched by a load of EPL clubs the past couple of months. Newcastle, Bournemouth, Southampton, Crystal Palace, West Ham and Swansea are teams I know of.}

3.) 22 Jan 2018 13:21:53
So he might he be worth a shout then. The other day BR said to reporter how many CH do you think we need that to me tells me that's not tree main focus this window creative player is what he wants I think?

{Ed007's Note - Unless Simunovic moves on I don't think we'll bring in a CB this window especially after the way Ajer has performed since he came into the team. We've got the Zenit games but apart from that the defence is more than capable for the league and Scottish Cup, we've kept five clean sheets in a row since that freak show at Tynecastle and two of them were against TRIFC and Aberdeen.}

4.) 22 Jan 2018 13:41:09
Is our interest genuine Ed. If it is what are we waiting for.

{Ed007's Note - I don't think there's a place for him in our squad. We've got Boyata, Simunovic, Ajer, Compper and possibly Bitton already vying for the 2 starting slots.}

5.) 22 Jan 2018 13:50:18
Ed is Hendry any better than ajer?

{Ed007's Note - Hard to say, Kev as I've not seen that much of Hendry. He is quick, seriously pacy for a CB and he looks comfortable on the ball and he's good in the air. The only thing missing from a Hendry/Ajer partnership would be experience.}

6.) 22 Jan 2018 14:04:51
So hopefully we will get that creative touch we need here's hoping EDs.

{Ed007's Note - I think that's our main weakness just now too.}

7.) 22 Jan 2018 14:45:54
Just think if we sign him it could end up the youngest back 4 in history of club.
Ralston Hendry Ajer Tierney.

{Ed007's Note - With 22-year-old Angus Gunn in goal.}

8.) 22 Jan 2018 16:01:21
Gunn? Really? Is that a possibility?

{Ed007's Note - Hahaha I don't know, Rich... I mean, Welshy :-D He is on Man City's books so why not at least ask?}

9.) 22 Jan 2018 16:13:13
Haha thought u had something up your sleeve there. Only seen him in the cup game the other night v chelski looks good tho.

{Ed007's Note - He ticks a lot of the boxes on our recruitment model and with him being at City I'm sure Rodgers and his staff are well aware of Gunn.}

10.) 22 Jan 2018 16:17:53
Ed I was talking to someone about Gunn the other day. I think I mentioned it on the live chat. My mate seems to think he has the makings of a cracking keeper but I ain't seen him play. Is my mate right?
I like the boy Ward that at liverpool.

{Ed007's Note - I've also been told that Gunn is great young 'keeper, Kev and I wouldn't mind Ward either.}

11.) 22 Jan 2018 16:42:24
If we’re intrested we should sign him and loan him back until the end of the season. There’s no point in him coming and not playing and there would be no point in letting a good player escape our grasp because of squad space. Ed have you heard anything about us looking at keepers?

{Ed007's Note - We can't do that with Scott Allan already at Dens Park on loan, you're only allowed one player on loan from another Premiership team.}

12.) 22 Jan 2018 16:53:59
Gunn would be an absolutely fantastic signing. Exactly the direction we should be going with signing a GK. Mentioned him on here before. Ed please tell me that's you dropping a wee hint there.

{Ed007's Note - If we do sign him it was a hint and if we don't it was just a suggestion :-p

13.) 22 Jan 2018 17:41:05
Is that Bryan Gunns son Ed? Has he chosen England or Scotland at International level? (Expecting an i don't care reply) 😂.

{Ed007's Note - Didn't he get called up for England last year?}

14.) 22 Jan 2018 18:05:59
I don't know anything about the lad if i'm honest i remember reading about him a couple of years ago i didn't realise he was with Man City. Fair play to him. I always wanted us to go get Kasper Schmeichel from Man City could have got a few years out of him.

{Ed007's Note - I'd say he's in the same bracket as Roberts and Ntcham at City and his chances of making it there are slim. There would probably be a few teams interested in him but any EPL side it would probably be as a No.2 for now so why not offer him the same chance as Fraser Forster, if you don't ask you don't get.}

15.) 22 Jan 2018 18:07:46
So do u think musonda if it were to happen it could be the last day of the window or will there be a chance to get someone else if told no?

{Ed007's Note - I can't put timescales on stuff mate.}

16.) 22 Jan 2018 18:37:16
Worth a try definitely. Did you see the photo of Conor Hazard at the Airport flying out to Dubai. Good lord all it lacked was a beanstalk. He must be a good bit over 6ft.

{Ed007's Note - Aye he's about 6 ft 5 or 6 inches.}

17.) 22 Jan 2018 19:01:40
There is a young guy coming through the ranks fae Croy that was about that size at 14 or something. Sporting Lisbon tried to sign him when he went to Celtic. Think his name second name is Rae.

{Ed007's Note - Joshua Rae that came from Accies? He must be 16 or 17 now and was over 6 ft when we signed him 3 or 4 years ago but he was freed last summer and joined Leeds.}

18.) 22 Jan 2018 19:14:46
He will look like a Giraffe in yellow kit 😂.

19.) 22 Jan 2018 19:50:04
Did He? Surprised by that he had loads of teams after him. Us Liverpool Everton Lisbon and Atlético tae am sure. I use to M. O. T his uncles motor.

{Ed007's Note - I just remember there being a wheen of clubs watching him when he was at Accies. He played for their under-20s when he was 13!}

20.) 23 Jan 2018 09:33:26
So we would need to tie Allan up in any deal to make that possible. Seems it would be worth a go.



30 Jan 2017 21:10:14
Ed any truth in Chelsea putting a 34 million bid in for Dembele its in a couple of papers online.


1.) 30 Jan 2017 21:48:16
Aye its all over the tinterweb. Might be something in this, gutted to see him go but 30-40m that's a no brainer. Think about the reinforcements that would buy (provided big pedro doesn't back pocket it)

2.) 30 Jan 2017 21:57:11
Dembele + Gordon = Begovic +34m

That would have to be a done deal

3.) 30 Jan 2017 22:13:34
Hope to God that's not true and he stays put.
The bhoy is priceless in terms of qualifying for CL next season and building upon what we have.

4.) 30 Jan 2017 23:49:11
Whilst I would not like to see him leave, its highly likely he will go in the summer. If this is the case it would be better now to let him go as long as we have a replacement which seems unlikely. Regardless of if and when he goes the club will benefit financially and also in the future. We are now truly highlighted as a fantastic opportunity for exceptional young talent to showcase themselves and develop as long as you perform. This can only benefit the club in the longer term by attracting a higher calibre of player who previously wouldn't even consider playing in the SPFL? Aberdeen and Hearts will also benefit along with the rest of scottish football. I did not include the new club simply as they struggle with the financial side currently.

5.) 30 Jan 2017 23:43:01
Reports on a core of pages say he's on his way to London for a medical. Not sure how accurate the source is deal for 34 million if this happens I hope we bring someone in tomorrow night. Saying that I'd be happy to get Roberts signed up.

6.) 31 Jan 2017 08:51:29
Why is it likely he will go in the summer? Did the kid not say a while back he wanted a couple seasons with us to develop?

7.) 31 Jan 2017 15:59:26
Sorry imo its highly likely, better?

29 Aug 2018 21:19:25
Ed can you see us bringing anyone in before the window closes, it is very worryimg especially before two of our biggest games on the horizon. I'm worried along with the rest of the Celtic support.


{Ed007's Note - I'm 100% confident that there'll be more signings, Sam.



20 Aug 2018 20:15:28
Hello Ed have you heard anything of potential new signings? Im worried about the lack of noise coming from us. If we don't sign any defenders we are in trouble. Hopefully this Boyata issue is put to bed soon and we get cash for him and put it back in the team.


{Ed007's Note - I haven't heard anything mate, it's been brutal trying to find out anything this summer.}

1.) 20 Aug 2018 21:18:03
Nothing to hear here . move along

2.) 20 Aug 2018 21:27:29
It looks like there’s probably been nothing to find out tbf Ed.

{Ed007's Note - There's not even anything about players being watched or clubs/agents being contacted. I did ask Ed002 about Bruma and the answer was:-

"Jeffrey Bruma is available and Crystal Palace and Frankfurt looked at him but nothing happened. Rodgers knows the player well so might be interested."

3.) 20 Aug 2018 22:12:51
I remember you saying a lot of the inside info had dried up since BR came in, which I suppose is a good thing. I think Bruma is the template of what we should be looking for - physically imposing and no nonsense defending style - but unfortunately guys like him cost good money. I’d have said McKenna was worth going for if we didn’t have Hendry and Ajer already but not now.

{Ed007's Note - Bruma would be a fantastic signing but I can't see there being anything in it. I used to say that Hendry and McKenna were about the same level but - and I hate slagging off young players that are at least giving 100% - I'd maybe offer Hendry in a deal for McKenna. It's a shame to say it but I don't see Hendry ever being accepted by a lot of fans now no matter how he progresses, every single mistake or slack pass is going to be magnified and see the lad crucified.}

4.) 20 Aug 2018 22:13:25
Fingers crossed on Bruma then boys!

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Chirivella come in, seems strange for him to pull the plug on his Rosenborg deal, we missed out on McGinn, another play Rodgers knows so logically all makes sense.

Never seen him play but he’s got a fancy name, the fans will be buzzing.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 00:35:34
You are right, it looks like we have lost Hendry, he can't be enjoying his football and certainly isn't benefitting from playing at home . If fans tried to encourage him and build up his confidence we might have a footballer .
Fans destroyed Ambrose and took all hid confidence
Fans gave Boyata a hard time for long enough, although they eased up as he played better in the 2nd half of last season, the fans may have made up his mind to leave now.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 10:58:35
It’s been murder to get news about transfers this summer because there haven’t feckin been any. Getting news on things that haven’t happened is impossible. Maybe the next week will change that. My feeling is it will be the usual last day scramble hoping for a cut price deal as is the way of our board.



06 Aug 2018 09:35:21
Ed do you think there is a real chance of us getting Roberts back on board? Or is it just paper talk?


{Ed007's Note - I think Paddy might have been a little surprised and disappointed at the level of teams showing interest in him.We know he is very confident in his own ability and probably doesn't fancy a Pub League relegation fight or even worse playing in the Championship.}

1.) 06 Aug 2018 13:18:58
Ed he is a top championship or a mid table EPL team. A Newcastle or a Burnley. However they will pay him £30k a week no problem. I don't think he would be sold for less than £8mill to £10mill maybe more. Is he really a £10mill player? don't think so.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 13:35:20
Johnnymac players that have no first team experience, no European experience and have won nothing in the game are going for more than
8-10 million right now.
Jesus Christ waghorn is valued at 8 million so paddy is definitely a 10 million player.
Think fans need to get their heads round the fact that 10 million doesn't buy you very much now a days.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 17:42:42
I agree Kev but he is £10mill because he is in EPL. You have seen him play for us. He is not a £10mill player. Thete must be better ways to spend £10mill and with Morgan, the Aussie coming in do we really need Paffy. don't think so.



28 Jul 2018 18:03:06
Ed you herd anything about us being intrested in Harry Artur from Bournmouth?


{Ed007's Note - Are you just plucking out random players names and asking me about them?}

1.) 28 Jul 2018 20:17:56
I seen that scrolling through google. don't click on that hit whore p*sh site.

{Ed007's Note - Ah right, that explains it. No then, Sam :)



17 Jan 2018 17:15:14
Ed have you heard anything on the Jack Rodwell front? Free transfer he's worth taking a punt on surly.


{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't take him on a free, he's garbage and thankfully we have no interest in him.}

1.) 17 Jan 2018 17:31:57
Wouldn’t touch Rodwell with a barge pole! Brown Ntcham Armstrong far better than Rodwell! And I heard he’s on 70 grand a week! Staggering honestly!

Can't find this anywhere what's the source? You's will probably not agree but Robert Huth is on a free he would definitely fill a gap at the back experience and solid.

In all honesty I think he's going to end up at a mid table English team they'll pay the 15 million no bother they will want to get money in after buying Schiderlin and we'd only be interested in a 6 month loan I think Rodgers has other targets hence Eboue I hope I'm wrong but can't see it at all.

06 Dec 2016 15:43:45
I can honestly see him getting shot of the wee man hope I'm wrong he's done nothing wrong to be put out of the team one injury and that's it. Think Rodgers won't stand for the rotten attitude but hopefully he works with him gets him back in the team there is no doubt LG is 100% committed to us he gives his all on the pitch and he'd definitely have something plenty to offer to a team in the BPL don't want to loose him.
