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?



28 Jan 2017 19:53:20
Hello Ed see the Hernanes thing is doing the round again on the social media you herd anything? I know he's getting on a bit but still class he's not getting a sniff at juve just now hope there is some truth in this.


{Ed007's Note - Look where the story originated.}

1.) 29 Jan 2017 08:11:01
Where did it start Ed.

{Ed007's Note - That poxy hit whoring site, HITC. That appears to be where the story came from.}

2.) 29 Jan 2017 12:12:46
is there any word coming out of Celtic park of any potential signings in or out before Tuesday 12 o'clock deadline. With papers and online chat saying that there is no in comings do u think that it's a case of the board not backing BR or is it simply the players not being there to get? I would like to think that we would be able to get in one player at least. For instance a number 10 as BR wanted in the summer surely with the money and the time we've had since the summer that a player would've been identified and been able for this window.



01 Jan 2017 09:52:00
Ed you herd anything about us going for Jordan Larsson?


{Ed007's Note - No.}

1.) 01 Jan 2017 13:41:22
pish paper talk, a bid of 8.5 mill as they quoted tells me that.

2.) 01 Jan 2017 14:38:03
Why would we?

3.) 01 Jan 2017 20:30:21
As much as I'd love to see it for nostalgia, he just got relegated from sweedens league. He's hardly going to oust dembele or Griffiths. He's got a lot to do before he deserves a move to us.

4.) 01 Jan 2017 21:27:42
I was saying on one of the Celtic FB pages that his record is worse than 1 in 6. Amido Baldé was 1 in 3 for the club we bought him from and that was in a much better league. If he didn't have that last name nobody would be happy if we were linked to him.

5.) 02 Jan 2017 11:24:57
Nail on the head kevbhoy.

6.) 02 Jan 2017 13:46:21
Jordan Larsson signs for NEC Nijmegen in three-and-a-half-year deal.

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!



01 Jan 2018 22:45:00
Ed do you think we will try for Mcginn this month or you reckon he's south bound? I'd love to see him in with a solid centre half that's not cup tied and another striker.


{Ed007's Note - It would need to be an extraordinary offer for McGinn to turn down Celtic.}

1.) 02 Jan 2018 02:06:19
Lennon would want at least same money we payed for Brown maybe even more but we won't pay higher than 5m I hope CH keep jozo Boyata can go we need number 10 which he has craved about what's the chances though ED of us doing that let's c . Loads of links and bull stories to come wae it being a small window let's c what the best bull story will be. Am sure there will be a wee surprise in there somewhere bring it on haha.

2.) 02 Jan 2018 00:52:20
Do you expect us to put a bid in Ed? Wouldn't mind seeing him replace Armstrong and rotate with Ntcham/ Kouassi.

{Ed007's Note - Yes I do but McGinn would be best staying at Hibs until the summer and playing regularly. The only way I'd bring him in this month is if Armstrong leaves.}

3.) 02 Jan 2018 10:46:12
From the family ed, no offer yet.

4.) 02 Jan 2018 12:48:28
I like McGinn don't get me wrong the boy is a good player but is he any better than what we have, would hate to think we are going to spend 4m on a player who wudnt get a game.

5.) 02 Jan 2018 23:36:21
Rayman99 The negative view is that u would hate that McGinn @ £4m wouldn't be any better than we have . However I would look upon it that it would be great that for only £4 m we get a player much better than we have.



23 Jun 2017 11:56:12
Anyone worried about the lack of transfer activity so far I really hope we aren't waiting to see if we qualify for the champions league that's not good.


1.) 23 Jun 2017 12:23:28
Sam don't worry about it. we just started pre season on Monday! There is no rush to bring players in. yes it would be good to have them bedded in but we've got more than enough to deal with the first couple of CL qualifiers! Brendan says he'll add 2 or 3 bits of quality and that's exactly what he'll do! This is a squad that just went through a whole campaign unbeaten, so there's absolutely no need to worry. we're in as good a pace as we've been in for years, both on and off the pitch. this is actually the most relaxed I've ever felt going into a new season!



04 Jun 2017 23:01:14
Ed just seen a couple of headline saying we are in advanced stages of a permanent move for Roberts can you add anything mate always appreciated.


{Ed007's Note - They need to finalise the price.}

1.) 04 Jun 2017 23:18:59
So its looking likely to happen Ed? Would be a superb deal.

{Ed007's Note - I've said all along that I expected Roberts to be playing for us next season and I still do.}

2.) 04 Jun 2017 23:59:13
That would be fantastic. I hope we don't quibble over the price too much, as we have done before and lost out on someone, especially with the potential windfall from VVD.

{Ed007's Note - If I was to take a guess I don't think it's the fee and more likely to be add ons or sell on clauses or even a buy back option.

3.) 05 Jun 2017 00:22:44
its true sam.

4.) 05 Jun 2017 00:44:16
Really hope so! will Man city insert a large sell on percentage that will sweeten the deal or is it regarding the fee?

5.) 05 Jun 2017 06:56:46
But what about Johnny Hayes? Surely paddy won't be happy to play 2nd fiddle to Johnny Hayes.

6.) 05 Jun 2017 07:09:43
Brilliant Campsie lol 👍.

7.) 05 Jun 2017 09:12:31
Jamesbhoy but you source says we won't be signing anyone till after champions league qualifiers .

8.) 05 Jun 2017 11:45:41
paddy's agent told celtic he wanted to join us, a lot of talk its getting financed by the virgil sell on fee cash.

9.) 05 Jun 2017 12:14:08
That's great news, Roberts must be keen to come if the talks are at an advanced stage.
He is a cracking player, and I am amazed that a lot of EPL clubs haven't shown much interest in him.
I read in the Daily Mirror that Celtic have offered £5m, whereas Man City want £10m for him, I obviously want Celtic to get the best deal possible, but when you look at the ridiculous fees clubs in England pay for players, even £10m doesn't sound too excessive for a player of Roberts ability.

10.) 05 Jun 2017 22:37:43
Paddy Rodgers is a better fit at Celtic than most EPL teams . Most clubs outside top 6 would be reluctant to sign a rather small ball dribbler, they would over look his shooting and assisting ability and feel that he is a bit of a luxury player .
Top 5/ 6 might think he hasn't the blistering pace to set himself aside from other good wing typec players .
Unlike any other team our Manager and his coaches, his team mates and our supporters know better than any other club what he can do and what B R wants to improve on . He is happy here and he has Kieran Tierney.
We have more to offer him he has more to offer us.



26 Jan 2017 16:34:15
Ed if we decide to sell Gordon do you think Rodgers will bring another keeper in or go with what we have? I know he's not wanting to sell but 3 million plus would be hard to turn down especially with Gordon getting on a bit.


{Ed007's Note - I don't think we'll sell Gordon. Adrian from West Ham could be a possible replacement, his agent has made it known to Celtic that he would be open to joining us.}

1.) 26 Jan 2017 17:28:45
Is Adrian any gd? Not seen a lot of his games or any pundits raving about him

{Ed007's Note - I've not seen much of him myself.}

2.) 26 Jan 2017 17:34:45
There have been spells where he's looked fantastic. But he's too prone to 'moments', like Gordon. A good idea to think about is that Randolph (who I always thought looked a decent keeper) is keeping him out the side. Adrian wouldn't be much of a step up in my opinion.

3.) 26 Jan 2017 18:32:11
Would love vorm to replace gordon

4.) 26 Jan 2017 19:09:10
Vorm was a good keeper but has spent years sitting on a bench now tae.
I always question what drives a player willing to do that.

5.) 26 Jan 2017 18:44:45
Ed what about vorm from spurs? Wasn't BR looking for a #1 keeper earlier in season. I just can't believe we would turn down 5 mill to keep Gordon. He has been a bit better but still makes dumb mistakes and cost us in Europe.

I'm sure he has targets and could upgrade in nets for CL

{Ed007's Note - We approached Spurs in the summer about Michel Vorm but they said he wasn't for sale and they then gave him a years contract extension in December taking his deal up to summer 2018.
Unless he requests a transfer Spurs are happy with him as their No.2.}

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.

I trust his judgment he's brought the best out of Forrest and Armstrong two players that where probably on borrowed time at the club I'm sure he can get this lad to his best too, I think this is depth to the squad I just think he'll get shot of Mcgregor and Biton bring McCarthy in on loan and Mutch permanent think it's going to be and interesting window more outs than in I think.
