Weah confirmed but only till the end of the season.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 20:16:17
Hate loan signings especially this short but if it wins us the league fair enough.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 20:25:32
A lot of rumours there will be an option for another year if it all goes well.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 20:21:10
If it’s only to the end of the season I’m really not overly pleased, an 18 month deal would have been a lot better. It seems like we want to improve the forward areas but don’t want to pay to do it. We signed two players now who we lose and will probably have to replace in the summer, and get it sorted hopefully before the champions league qualifiers . It all seems a bit short sighted . Hopefully we may be using the bulk of the budget on defenders as we have the same problem there in the summer.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 20:58:07
It isn't ideal but if the rumors are true on this lads potential ability I'd rather have than have not.

Get in bayo and Rodgers has 2 players for every forward position n that should turn those rubbish away draws to wins.

Im coming round to BRs thinking, young hungry players for the run in.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 21:13:48
We have Arzani due back also only so may wingers/ forwards you can have?

6.) 07 Jan 2019 22:30:31
Just a Twitter rumour, maybe just that, Daniel Sturridge to Celtic, loan or permanent unknown, allegedly from a footballers agent.

7.) 07 Jan 2019 23:18:17
No chance Sturridge will come up hear I would eat my hat if that deal would happen.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m not sure you want Sturridge mate. Be careful what you wish for.

8.) 08 Jan 2019 07:26:05
Sturridge? Did you watch him last night for someone who should’ve been busting a gut considering the competition he has was as disinterested a player I’ve ever seen.
As for Weah as much as I don’t like loans 6 month with (if there is one) 18 month extension probably makes sense considering the musonda fiasco.

9.) 08 Jan 2019 08:39:42
Im not concerned that the deals are only six months, and if the rumours of a chance to extend are true then that is all the better. if you look at the Mosunda loan, we took him for 18 months and it didn't work, we could have been stuck with him. 6 months will see if he can adapt to the scottish game and then look at extending.

looks like john park has gotten his jotters.


1.) 14 Oct 2016 16:14:42
DN30 have you sacked him?

2.) 14 Oct 2016 16:23:54
How do you mean I've not seen anything yet big d.

3.) 14 Oct 2016 16:36:00
Apparently he has left to look for a new challange lol about time this happened tbh. But now we are looking for someone to fill his roll, whatever this maybe.



27 Apr 2016 11:47:32
seen nigel pearson being linked with us now don't fancy him as the man to take us forward seems like a bit of a chunt to me.


1.) 27 Apr 2016 12:23:32
He is a bit paranoid, but all the Leicester players loved him and I was just reading Mahrez say he put down all the foundations, especially defensively. He said he should get as much credit as Ranieri. We were linked with Pearson before we got Mowbray, so someone on the board rates him. I also think if it wasn't for his slightly odd behaviour he'd be doing well, - I think that he was on edge because the fans and journalists were slating him, to be fair though they went on that great run and stayed up, and got them promoted also. I don't think his son helped either with his antics in the Far East, especially with the owners being from there. He's highly rated as a coach though, and been at other big clubs and has experience. I'm just terrified about the alternatives, - that's Malky Mackay in today from 25/ 1 to second favourite at 5/ 2. The board better realise that if they don't get this right there will be mutiny. There are loads of top managers available, also coaches who could work under an experienced director of football, they can't be trusted though, they are backward, plain and simple.

2.) 27 Apr 2016 12:30:46
It's also a disgrace if the board are waiting on Davie Moyes making a decision so he can see if the Everton job comes up again, or even another club. If they want him then he should decide straight away, he's not good enough to be choosy. He might end up out of work for another long period, - if he doesn't get the Villa/ Everton job he might be begging to get something.

3.) 27 Apr 2016 13:11:07
I'd take Pearson before Malky, Lennon, Coyle and some of the other dross we've been linked with.

4.) 27 Apr 2016 17:09:05
They could appoint Mourinho and it still won't be good enough for me if Peter Lawwell is still at club.

5.) 27 Apr 2016 19:55:59
He at least has to clarify what Park actually does. He has one of these vague/ generic titles like director of football operations, - all he seems to do though is scout players. Him and Lawwell are more like bloody football agents, especially when you add that guy called Dudu Dahan. The whole set-up is a disgrace. It also means no-one knows definitively who is doing what and who is to blame for so many mistakes. In any other organisation you would call it a whitewash. Park hasn't done anything to improve the youth dept, that's still average compared to plenty other clubs, so God knows what he does except sit in front of a computer because as far as I know it's other guys that actually go to most of the games (to watch players) especially abroad. The more I think about the whole thing the more angry I get because from top to bottom it's a complete shambles.

7.) 27 Apr 2016 21:15:29
Ranieri has even said himself he was very impressed with the organisation of the team and work ethic they demonstrated when he took over, and didn't look to change anything in those two key departments. I don't know what it is with Pearson though, he just doesn't get my heart racing. Then again maybes that's not what is important. The problem still hasn't left the club though, let's not just let it get swept under the carpet when the masses are appeased by a celtic man being given the job.

8.) 28 Apr 2016 02:56:24
I think myself included having been getting carried away with names for the vacant manager's job . We are talking about Moyes. , Rodgers, Pearson, Keane and a whole lot of other names of managers who could all get a job with the middle of the table EPL teams and Championship teams . With these clubs they could risk £10-£15m on an unknown striker and no one would blind an eye if the striker didn't strike . At Celtic there would be a virtual Inquest if a £1 striker wasn't scoring regular.
That 's why we should be looking at A Stubbs and N Lennon and maybe even Jackie Mac to realistically fill our vacancy.

9.) 28 Apr 2016 05:57:48
There's already been an inquest - JP and PL are guilty.

I think after the last few appointments the club need to pull out the stops and get somebody with a wee bit more pedigree than Stubbs, Lennon or Jackie Mac.

However, the powers that be though have meddled and ran the club into being a difficult one to manage, coupled with some fans ignorant expectations, my head tells me it's really not as desirable job as it used to be.

10.) 28 Apr 2016 06:15:12
I agree with the points made about more transparency too.



06 Aug 2013 09:58:30
Alfred Finnbogason will be a celtic player by the end of the week heerenveen are running at a loss according to their interim chief exec.


1.) There are so many conflicting posts on here I don't know what to believe!
One thing I know for sure is we are a striker, a midfield powerhouse and soon a solid centre back down and we have a must-win game in Sweden tomorrow we need to focus on.
Unfortunately the headlines leading up to the game are all negative re section 111 and not about the class replacements we seriously need to progress and improve.
I hope we win this tie and follow it up with much needed positivity on the transfer front and Celtic in general.

Jungle Jim

2.) I would love this to happen. I just can't see Celtic spending 5m on one player.

3.) Everton bound

i'm hoping that celtic use the money made from champions league and player sales to get in a quality centre back and even more so a top quality striker with good technique able to make goals on his own and good in the air what's the point in having wingers or attacking full backs whipping crosses into the box for wee guys who are crap in the air i. e stokes and hooper we should speculate to accumulate spend 10 - 15 million on some more quality players instead of some unknown's with potential if we learned anything from the juventus games is I think midfield were ok but up front and at the back we are lacking in quality and with maybe atleast a more clinical striker we may have got more from the games hoopers head is gone for me he doesn't want to be here any more we should have gave stokes the nod atleast he wants to be at celtic
big. D


1.) NL is very committed to improving the team and progressing and although we will lose a few in the summer (Wanyama will be a huge loss) the nucleus of the squad will stay. Therefore we must go for that extra bit of quality with the cash available.
Defensive frailties were obvious as you say and the inability to score in 2 full games against Juventus also tells a story, and I would love to see a flair player on the left and a creative maestro in the middle.


2.) What we need is someone on the park who can take the team by the scruff of the neck and tell them to get their finger out. Someone in the mould of Roy Aitken or indeed our Manager
Tambhoy {Ed007's Note - Scott Brown...I have said it since before the last time he was out with a long term injury how important he is to the team. I think NL sees a lot of himself in Brown and that is why he is club captain. Brown is the heartbeat of the team, when he is out nobody is willing to step up.}

So according to the BBC sevco are fighting us for the signing of Powell 😏 are we still interested in him? Don't know much about the guy I know 007 has commented on him before would he be a realistic target and for what position.


{Ed007's Note - It's Nick Powell we're trying to sign, they're wanting Enoch.}

1.) 20 Jan 2019 19:50:13
You've mentioned him before as a player BR likes haven't you Ed? Although were Wigan not looking for a good few quid?

{Ed007's Note - He's out of contract in the summer, Kev.}

2.) 20 Jan 2019 20:40:02
What's the chances of us getting him Ed?
I had read before we were after him but I thought it was just paper talk.

{Ed007's Note - 50/50, we either will or we won't.}

3.) 20 Jan 2019 22:02:08
I read that today Ed but I'm sure the last time his name popped up there was a figure of about £6m being bandied about.

{Ed007's Note - You'd easily get that kind of money for Powell.}

4.) 20 Jan 2019 23:00:00
Nice one centurian nice one. i'll get my coat.

5.) 21 Jan 2019 01:07:54
Eds I’ve noticed we have been linked with Maja from Sunderland but they want him back this guy has been linked all window I think this has got to be rubbish as we have Weah Vayo and Burke surely we don’t need another ED?

{Ed007's Note - Maybe we'll need another one in the summer.}



07 Jan 2019 14:12:04
So I don't know if this has been covered yet but assuming we sign both Weah and Bayo which one will get the song boom boom boom let me hear you say Weah/ Bayo?


1.) 07 Jan 2019 14:38:07
Well bayo deal would be permanent.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 15:16:06
Big d

You will get your Green Brigade membership burnt in front of you for that effort 👍👍👍HH.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 15:36:20
That Patter's like watter; Bayo the Weah.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 16:29:10
Just seen a 5 minute video of Bayo scoring 25 goals.
8 goals with his right foot.
5 goals with his left foot.
And an amazing 12 goals from headers.
He is a big fella and decent delivery into the box is a must to give him a chance to get on the end of the crosses.
So playing a right footed player on the left wing is not ideal.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 16:53:54
Leon, his stats for his current club:

Games - 32
Goals - 22
Assists - 9

That's practically a goal or assist every single game with a strike ratio of better than 2 in 3. Those are excellent numbers for a young guy no matter what league he's in.

6.) 07 Jan 2019 17:52:07
I watched the same video Leon, the bhoy has some leap on him and header!

7.) 07 Jan 2019 18:23:25
For me it's all about if he can handle the pressure of playing for such a massive club, time will tell. But he certainly looks as if you give him chances he will put them away, I think the best thing about this deal is we are signing him bang on form and full of confidence. 💚🍀 HH.

8.) 07 Jan 2019 19:54:52
It's exciting to potentially get a young striker in who is producing the goods in a foreign league, with the 2 confirmed loan signings, my only concern with the two loan signings is that are they here to be in the first 11 or are they here to be squad players? If they are here to be in the first 11 then it just shows the lack of ambition by the club as the first team players will have their noses poked out then move on, which means we obviously need to buy new players for those positions in the summer which probably won't happen. But why the feck are we not looking at defensive reinforcements? They should of been priority and bought now. Ralston deserves a chance to be RB but we need another CB that's a must, stop being tight PL get someone decent bought. Finally welcome Damien you were a top player hope you can get the lads going and learn from yourself.

9.) 07 Jan 2019 21:28:12
Royjac that's true of any player coming in. Been many a good player come to parkhead and not be able to handle the pressure.
Turner the club is quite clearly looking at defensive reinforcements to go along with the SEVEN defensive player Rogers has signed and the six that were already here.

10.) 07 Jan 2019 21:34:19
I'm on about decent defenders kev not the utter pish options we have bought mate.

11.) 07 Jan 2019 22:26:11
I reckon the loan signings are coming in to give SS and Forrest a bit more competition, Although we have other wingers I'm not really sure if BR trusts the ones in reserve to really come in a be as effective as the ones that are starting. So if these two lads can come in and freshen things up and create a bit more of an edge to the side, which I am now beginning to believe they will. We can march on to 8, we only have ourselves to beat really 💚🍀 HH.

12.) 07 Jan 2019 23:38:49

14.) 08 Jan 2019 09:30:09
Aye I get that Turner but your yapping about the club not targeting defence when the fact is that since Rogers has came in he's signed 7 defenders in just 2 years.
So the club has backed him in trying to strengthen the defence but his choice of signings have been poor.

ALF is out of contract this summer :P.


1.) 26 Jul 2017 22:58:39
ALF as in the wee hairy Jewish alien?

Nah he's deid Adam Le fondre or maybe Charlie Austin.



28 Jun 2017 21:30:01
i see Viktor Fischer went to mainz for an undisclosed fee (presumeably less than the 3.8 mill he cost middlesborough) thought he would have been a good signing for us but i guess it wasn't meant to be maybe the new trialist will get a contract tho.

Yes very good I'm just trying to be realistic when a team from one of the bigger leagues comes calling and they most likely will an extra year or two would give Celtic a stronger hand Not trying to put a downer on him signing or anything it's just one thing that irks me when it comes to contracts when we all know these guys come in and sold on same as sell on clauses we should try for larger sell on clauses but anyway Welcome to Celtic OE.

I think with the business model we are using to buy young and develop to sell on for a profit we should be giving these players longer contracts to protect the investment and make as much from them as possible 2 years down the line OE could be our top striker banging the goals in and with only 2 years left on his contract weakens our position at the negotiating table.

Bain for me has been excellent I think his composure on the ball and passing out from the back has taken a lot of the anxiety away from the defense hibs were pushing high up but Bain's passing nullified that he has to be number 1 from now on.

Agreed mally and it was the guy who scored the goal who committed it seems a lot of people have been overlooking it but a definite foul for me and if it had been given we more than likely would have won the game and all the drama would have been lessened but another point I thought gamboa played well however Edouard looked less than interested in the game we really need to get a new striker in.

I wouldn't say no to Roberts coming back for the right price but I think the priority should be a striker and someone like Sutton or hartson type big strong and good at holding up the ball and good in the air.
