Janko is away to st etienne, is that a transfer or a loan?


{Ed007's Note - Transfer, he signed a 4-year deal with them yesterday.}

Any fee involved?

4.) 09 Jul 2017 16:38:07

Yes, we paid them to take him!

I heard Bailly was also away too. We will have cut a fair bit off the wage bill with people leaving this Summer.

5.) 09 Jul 2017 19:02:48
Ha was kinda expecting that.



08 Jun 2017 16:06:10
I don't expect Brendan, to bring more than two players in, if we hold onto Dembelle, the team is playing well and is probably only lacking a truly creative midfielder, I would like him to give Ajer and Simuovic a try as a centre back pairing, if Hayes does come in I think he might surprise a lot of people with what he brings to the team, if the team from last season isn't disturbed too much.

I think it can make a real impression in the CL, I think what makes a great team is consistency of selection, players playing together, gelling, getting to know how each other plays, under Ronnie the team was chopped and changed, because squad rotation was the buzz word, and he was a believer, and so were a lot on this site, we can all reel of the Lisbon lions not because they played one game but because the majority played regularly, and the counter argument is that the modern game is faster and more physical, and you need rotation, but modern footballers are also faster and more fitter.

just look at the number of players Leicester city used last year, what I am trying to say is that we have the basis of a very good European team here, but we just need a bit more guile in midfield, but aye there the rub, where do you find it.


1.) 08 Jun 2017 17:27:51
At the moment I'd rather see Jozo and Dedrick as our CH partnership unless we bring an other CH with proven ability. I don't think Ajer is ready for and every game campaign yet. I would though like to see him get a few games under his belt.

2.) 08 Jun 2017 18:49:19
Id be quite happy with 2 maybe 3 signings of as good a quality as we can attract to scottish football. One of those signings for me must be wee paddy roberts providing man city and roberts himself are willing to make it happen. Just as important as new signings, we must try our very best to keep our main assets ie wee tierney, dembele, armstrong etc. If we can do that then i think most fans would be over the moon.

3.) 08 Jun 2017 18:50:55
I'd definitely like to see more than 2 coming in aindoh. We need a quality defender, a quality midfielder and another couple who will improve our squad rather than first team. Then the cherry on top wee Paddy!

4.) 08 Jun 2017 21:23:48
I think it will be 3-4 signings with 2 top notch.

5.) 09 Jun 2017 07:20:21
reckon a cpl of quality players will be brought in, definitely need a RW (PADDY HOPEFULLY) . and a playmaker, need to shift a few players also, with commons and efe away that's a good chunk of change saved on wages so far.

6.) 09 Jun 2017 08:32:10
Ed is there any truth to the rumour about leicster wanting roberts if mahrez goes?, lot of talk about it from down there apparently, meant to add it to previous post.

{Ed025's Note - its everton who are interested in paddy bhoywonder..

7.) 09 Jun 2017 11:09:51

just noticed ACs interest in Costa - ends the Moussa rumour?

9.) 09 Jun 2017 18:39:15
Read it was a loan the were after. Still good news though as they wouldn't be sniffing about till Christmas.

10.) 09 Jun 2017 21:44:03
Moussa is staying put. if anyone is going its Armstrong.

11.) 10 Jun 2017 12:05:26
We're not lacking a creative midfielder. If Celtic can get rogic 100% fit then we will have 1 of the most creative midfielders in Europe! I honestly think that on his day, that bhoy could tear anyone to shreds.



14 May 2017 15:25:20
It is madness to think about selling Dembelle until it becomes a necessity, when he makes his full french debut, his value will skyrocket, it is also madness to talk about downgrading Griffith's in the pecking order for someone who is very much unproven as is the case of Solanke, probably won't come north of the border but if he does, hope it isn't another case of what happened with Guidetti.


1.) 14 May 2017 17:33:17
It's not madness, the whole point is developing the squad. Rodgers isn't a massive fan on Griffiths so he has to work for his place. I agree he's a very important player for us but if a better striker comes in it's only correct to replace him. I'm sure it would be the same case for solanke.

2.) 14 May 2017 20:01:11
Unless we get an offer in excess of £30m (which I can't see) then I would think the board would look at the bigger picture with what we could earn for CL qualification. I TOTALLY get the 'what if he get's a bad injury' argument. tricky one.

3.) 14 May 2017 21:03:39
I agree with your first point Aindoh. If Dembele is willing to stay, and I honestly think he is, then we would be silly to sell him this season. I think he will want to play CL football for us, knowing he will participate in every game and gain further experience. He appears to be a very patient and mature kid who is astute enough to know that time is on his side.

I partly agree with your second point. I think LG would and should be rightly pissed off if he was to get pushed down the pecking order. However, I will qualify that by saying that he's at a big club and big club's are fluid in their development. The playing staff will constantly change and hopefully improve. It is up to him to secure his place in the starting line up.

As for Solanke, who knows if he will come and who knows if he will be a success. The point is, if it isn't him coming to challenge our current strikers then it will be someone else. We should be embracing that sort of investment and improvement instead of fearing it, and so should the players.

4.) 14 May 2017 21:10:57
In brendan we trust a would bet we'll come out the summer transfer window stronger HH.

5.) 16 May 2017 01:06:15
Don't really post much but on the subject of Griffiths I feel I had to. Anyway I don't see what goes on behind the scenes but on the field you can hardly fault Griffiths for his contribution. If he hadn't picked up that injury I would have expected him to score 20+ even with his limited game time.

To even consider him being third choice is insane imo, if dembele was to leave or get injured long term I'm sure he would easily pick up where he left off. I hope Rodgers issue isn't down to his ego especially with what he said when he first arrived or down to him trying to stamp his authority although I do believe Griffiths should be doing as he is asked.

Hopefully we can get to a point where we have 3 top class forwards (demblele, Griffiths+1) as we did with Larsson and co. Neither are in the same league mind you 😉.

6.) 16 May 2017 12:49:35
Sutton, Larsson and Hartson, the hunskelpers.

7.) 16 May 2017 22:42:03
We won't get an offer of over £25-£30 million for Dembele as our Board will make it clear to any club who show an interest that a bid isn't welcome . Interest will be snubbed at outset .

Of course its no surprise that we have no idea who may be coming in, Celtic have always been good at keeping their cards close to their hearts and Brendan is keeping this tradition.

The referree tomorrow night once abandoned a Europa league game because of one of the visiting players being struck by an object thrown from the crowd, he might have handled the Belfast game differently than the ref on the night.

Is there any reason that Lee Wallace is being considered for a Scotland place other than the team he plays for? .


1.) 07 Nov 2016 10:48:13
well the undisputed best left back we have in Robertson is injured. is their any reason you doubt his ability other than the team he plays for? you want your bitter in a pint glass?

2.) 07 Nov 2016 10:57:15
Both Robertson and Tierney are injured or he wouldn't be near the squad as he is inferior.

3.) 07 Nov 2016 11:17:00
Be honest Cee, do you think his form this year merits a place in the Scotland squad,?, even your own forum has got people guestioning his place in The rangers team, am not bitter just wondering if he was playing for Ross county would he be in the Scotland squad.

4.) 07 Nov 2016 11:23:35
Who would you have in there aindoh?

5.) 07 Nov 2016 11:27:48
To be perfectly honest, he was on the International fringes when he was an SPL player with Hearts and that is probably why he has been called in to cover for injuries. I agree that if and when Strachan has his first choice (s) avail, he will be surplus to requirements.
There was a time when Rangers players were picked to appease/ increase the crowd eg: Henderson over Jinky, but not this time.

6.) 07 Nov 2016 11:48:08
Cee the team Wallace plays for has nothing to do with it. the fact he's utter Shoite does! He should be nowhere near that team on Friday! Put the boy from Swansea in!

7.) 07 Nov 2016 12:10:38
Wallace has regressed to an alarming degree - and it has less to do with the team he plays for, and everything to do with the standard he's been playing at for five years. Five years that, as a full back, should have been his prime.

He could have (and looked to) become an International class full back. Now? He's decent SPFL level and that's it.

Tierney and Robertson are streets ahead of him. As for
Who should play? I'd have shinnie in before Wallace every day of the week.

9.) 07 Nov 2016 13:08:08
To be honest, not sure, who I'd play, just think Wallace is there on past reputation and because he plays for The rangers, don't rate Strachan as a manager, and don't think he has checked out all the available alternatives to Wallace, .

10.) 07 Nov 2016 13:34:48
As much as I think he's way overrated by that mob, I'd struggle to name somebody else who would do a better job as 3rd choice. But, like yourself, I haven't really done too much research. It's a win-win for him anyway because if we win he'll get credit and if we lose it'll be Scott Brown's fault haha.

11.) 07 Nov 2016 13:31:21
I posted about this as well mate its in the other posts. shouldn't be anywhere near the team he his rotten and is only in the team because who he plays for shinnie of Aberdeen should be in before him and I'm nor just saying this because who he plays for because even their fans say he's got to go and isn't captain material.

12.) 07 Nov 2016 15:46:32
Shinnie every day of the week!

13.) 07 Nov 2016 17:14:19
Bottom line is Lee Wallace is a grass.

14.) 08 Nov 2016 09:46:30
bumped hibs players and tradition when your club was formed and now your bumping their patter haha.

15.) 08 Nov 2016 09:47:55
shinnie who plays centre midfield nearly every week?

16.) 08 Nov 2016 10:19:54
You never answered my question, Cee, do you think Wallaces form this year merits a place in the Scotland team?, or are you scared of losinf brownie points with the rest of The rangers support.

17.) 08 Nov 2016 16:17:37
U wanted Rhodes in the and he canny get in the boro team you really are a font of knowledge, shinnie is a left back all day long you'd need to ask wee del why he's playing him there although he likes to lay the boot so maybe that's the answer.

{Ed007's Note - How funny would it be if WGS played Mulgrew at LB instead of Wallace?}

18.) 08 Nov 2016 16:39:58
In the words of Kevin keegan ed a would luv it haha hope your right.

{Ed007's Note - I don't know if they can get any more raging than their usual level of 'permanently', but that'd be one way to find out.}

19.) 08 Nov 2016 17:09:40
Think Mulgreww might be better in centre of defence than what's there.

20.) 09 Nov 2016 14:24:07
Cee, hilarious given you "purchased" your history.

And a Shinnie playing in midfield every week is still an improvement on a Wallace playing in (insert ANY right winger/ midfielder this season) 's pocket every week.

21.) 09 Nov 2016 17:55:03
Cee, I don't think u should be trying to be smart with what Celtic did 128/ 9! Yrs ago . The Govan cheats stole the clothes off the bacjk of the dead 1872 club in 2012 . Grave robbers .
You reckon Wallace who regarded as a Scottish Div 3 player a few years ago, to now be an International player, no surprise your fool of a manager reckons your goalkeeper will play for England . Cee u and Warburton talk nonsense.



14 Oct 2016 13:37:21
Oldbhoy, an interesting article in the paper today, Brendan speaking about young Dembele, think the young lad will be in safe hands with Brendan.


{Ed007's Note - It will be years before Rodgers has any real say in Dembele's career. You're getting mixed up with people's jobs again. It is up to John Park, Tommy Mcintyre and the youth coaches to nurture young players and plan their development.}

1.) 14 Oct 2016 13:59:42
He's trained with the first the though. Rogers must have been part of that decision.

{Ed007's Note - So? Rodgers has looked at players at all levels and had young Dembele take part in a light training session and bounce game when he first came in, and Dembele wasn't the only youngster involved. It was something fun to let some youngsters see what it's like being a first team squad member and is a common practice.
Brendan Rodgers has enough on his plate managing the first team without getting involved in other people's jobs. Remember John Park is the Football Development Manager, it's his job to oversee the footballing operations at the Club. McIntyre will speak to Park before he would speak to Rodgers about young players, hence Rodgers not knowing Dembele was going to play for the development squad, why would McIntyre need to ask the first team manager about it when it's not part of his remit?}

2.) 14 Oct 2016 14:48:22
What exactly is John Parks job?, just out of a matter of interest.

{Ed007's Note - As the Head of Football Development he is in charge of the footballing operations at the Club and answerable only to the CEO. He'll be involved with teams at every level but his input to the first team will be minimal in conjunction with Rodgers and his team and not really anything to do with training etc. He will help develop the training and coaching methods up to the first-team.
He has overall responsibility for the scouting department and procurement of players and will produce reports for Lawwell and Rodgers before any decision is made on making bids for players.
All staff on the footballing side report to him, the scouting department, coaches, the medical department, player's liaison officer all report to him.
Here's some job descriptions for Head of Football Development at different levels:

just been announced John Park leaving celtic.



15 Sep 2016 09:58:11
If you look at the big scores from the recent european games, what does it tell you?, that there's a big gulf between this lot and that lot?, what it says to me, is that certain nanagers and teams seem to get affected by what I will call europeaninitis, it does'nt matter how well the team is playing domestically, the team and tactics must be changed because they are now playing in europe, Barcelona might be a very good team, but they only look like the greatest team ever when they play teams afopting the same tactics as Celtic adopted, maybe I am wrong and they win every game in Spain 7-0,but I doubt it, because over there, other teams will be fighting to win points to strengthen their positions in the league, not stsnding of them admiring the so-called 'best players 'in the world, the weakest part of Barcelona is their defence, Celtic should have tried ti have a real go at them, and got stuck in and challenged and hounded, fairly and squareley for every ball, they would probably still get beat by a few goals but at least they would have scored some.


1.) 15 Sep 2016 11:28:32
simplistic - but you are underestimating the quality of barca.

its not simply when they have the ball they can find space - its when they don't have the ball - every one presses - everyone.

so you are scott brown - you are used to having 10 secs on the ball domestically - you play Barcelona and as soon as the ball is despatched towards you - or even sooner it the pass is anticipated to come to you - there is a man on you.

you simply can't say scott brown should think faster - he doesn't have that ability - but all of the Barcelona midfield and forward line do have that ability to think that fast - that's why the are brought in to play the Barcelona way

if they are ranked no1 in Europe - where are we?

2.) 15 Sep 2016 12:06:13
Perhaps we could have taken the game to them more, but I agree with digibanger, it is just too simplistic. Their defence might not be the strongest (it's still pretty darn good) but their midfield and attack are that good on the ball, and the way they defend and move as a team, is arguably THE best. There are teams much better than us that have 'tried to have a go at them' and ended up p*ssing into the wind.

3.) 15 Sep 2016 12:14:04
We have played Barcelona several times and most of them have been a lot closer matches than the last two.
During our contests they have always had better players than us (some world class) and were rated in the top few teams of Europe.
The difference in recent years is that our standards and quality of player have dropped so much and with it, a defeatist attitude and acceptance of our limitations.
Of course we were well beaten, but those other Celtic teams in previous years would have gone down fighting and battling.

4.) 15 Sep 2016 12:28:58
What was the piint of chsnging a team that was playing relatively well, if everyone was expecting us to get beat anyway, ok, it might be simplistic, but would rather that we came out more, worse teams than Celtic, will get better results against Barcelona, by playing different systems, don't fall into the trap of thinking that they are supermen.

5.) 15 Sep 2016 12:46:49
Another argument would be that we should just put 11 men in our own box for 90 mins. Perhaps we'll get a point off them that way.

6.) 15 Sep 2016 14:08:01
any team playing Barcelona should use only 1 tatic.
5 players on the goal line
4 players on the 6 yard line
1 player on the penalty spot.
Come on Barcelona score 7 through that lol.

7.) 15 Sep 2016 14:21:20
How many times do they score 7 in the domestic league?

8.) 15 Sep 2016 14:45:15
Far too many Barcelona admirers and apologists on here.
Aye they're a great side, but I have seen us beat OR at least compete with countless great sides over the years and we have never, ever been big spenders or had teams full of super-stars.
I have watched Leeds Utd, Man Utd, Real, Juventus, AC and Inter, Barcelona themselves and other top sides, all play us in European competition and we never surrendered and chucked it like Tuesday.
There is a pride and passion that comes with the jersey and if you watch Celtic The Musical you will see cameos of players who won with style and lost with fight and always earned respect.

9.) 15 Sep 2016 17:59:14
yes they can be beaten

but remember how tight la liga has been in the last 4/ 5 seasons - not only real challenging and winning but Atletico as well now.

so much so that Barcelona RESTED top players at weekend - and paid the price - rested them so they could be full force against who - CELTIC!

They didn't underestimate us - they respected us that much.

So a far better team, resting players and getting beat in their very tight league - can you imagine if we rested players last Saturday?

I am not standing back and admiring Barcelona - and saying that's why we got beat - admiration has nothing to do with it.

Its a Stone cold fact. so we line up 5-4-1 - put extras in defence and we still got pumped! .

I agreed it didn't work. we should have played our own game - and perhaps we will at home. but if its 8-0 because we play expansively - don't come greetin in here!

10.) 16 Sep 2016 01:01:26
There was no doubt we were wide open on Tuesday and should have been tighter .
The problem of making up your own word is that no one understands your point . Barcelona are a fantastic team and standing back admiring them only make them better . However that wasn't what B R intended in my opinion but what he wanted was to cover where they wanted to run and pass ball to, but getting stuck in and challenging every mood based on past performances would result in one thing and that is a number of red cards for Celtic players. These super Barcelona players are very adept at diving and rolling over and conning referees . I am sure Brendan rightly spoke about that . A straight red card would have put a Celtic player out of one or two games against our best hope the Germans as well as City.

11.) 16 Sep 2016 02:03:58
'Acceptance of our own limitations'-- that phrase sticks for me and its sprawled all over our collective comments for years now. I'm now aspiration its, but let's be in it to have a go, like the Lisbon lions, or like Leicester.

12.) 16 Sep 2016 22:01:54
Many realistic Celtic supporter will use the term accepting, a heavy defeat against a team like Barcelona . There is no comparison between the money Leicester spent over the last 2 seasons and we have spent .
We can all be positive before a match against any team, but no matter how we are beaten if we have a twitter of wit , we know that by and large when we play the best in the world, we are only going to win once in ten and that's when everything goes right and nothing wrong.

There are no easy matches for any Scottish teams at this time of the season, because of lack of competitive games, I don't know how far Astana are into the season, but why is a team in Asia playing in the CL anyway, I know Australia are in the Eurovision, and Israeli teams should be playing in the Africa cup instead of the Cl,

Let's forget about paddy, if it's not going to happen, don't worry about it, he is a talented young guy, but he is nothing that special, at the moment, maybe he will develop into a superstar, maybe not, I think the young supporters of today are so starved of any kind of talented players, they go absolutely doolally if anyone manages to dribble the ball.

I don't sing about people blowing innocent men, women and children up, there are different times and different situations, I don't know how old you are, but maybe one day, when you are older, you will realise, it's all a lot of rubbish, there are no beginnings and ends, there is no alpha and omega, there is no heaven or hell, just do unto others what you would have them do to you, and as for Mohamed, he is about as much a messenger of God as Jimmy swaggart (you might need to Google that)
