I saw a rumour that Norwich and a few other clubs are looking to take Patrick Roberts on loan next season and hijack the deal he has with Celtic.
I've no idea what the details are of his loan, but I wondered if this could actually happen?
I'm not a great fan of loan signings, but if this is true, then it just shows what a nonsense a lot of them are.


1.) 03 Jun 2016 13:04:03
It woukd be a hammer blow. Arguably our mist gifted player and has the sort of return a Celtic winger should have. Having a pkayer like that on loan though, we'd only have ourselves to blame.

2.) 03 Jun 2016 15:46:45
Gerryc i wouldn't worry too much. As much as i'm not a PL fan, i'm sure he will have made sure there was no call back option for man city as a 6 month loan would of been pointless for both parties. After the success of developing Denayer it would be in Roberts best interest to stay put.

3.) 03 Jun 2016 17:52:43
Why are some of you guys going on about zlatan it will never happen get a grip of reality it's absolutely nonsense.

4.) 03 Jun 2016 19:17:48
I haven't seen the odds from the bookies, but if it was true that Celtic were second favourites for his signature, then why wouldn't fans want to talk about it.
There's enough nonsense spouted on your own sites for you to worry about without you bothering what is written on ours.

5.) 03 Jun 2016 19:54:50
Gerry what makes u think wullie1967 is one of them? A would've thought 1967 would give u a hint? Maybe am wrong n it's the year he was born but even if it was, what rangers man would put our finest year into his name?

6.) 03 Jun 2016 22:51:25
Well said Stephbhoy and gerryc I'm a real Celtic supporter don't miss a game and I'm not stupid in thinking zlatan comming to Celtic stupid rumours like that are embarrassing.

7.) 04 Jun 2016 09:47:28
why is it embarrassing wullie, the man himself said he would love to play for us, are we not allowed to think that maybe he was considering us?, its a rumours page mate. i found it quite refreshing to see us linked with a class act rather than the usual dross .

8.) 04 Jun 2016 10:14:57
Exactly bhoywonder it's a rumour page it was never going to happen, don't no if you no but people make this stuff up all the time especially on here you could start a rumour on here about Messi comming and it would take off lol
Hail hail.

9.) 04 Jun 2016 10:39:22
Wullie 1967, I apologise to you, I made a mistake in reading your post.

10.) 04 Jun 2016 10:46:00
i get what your saying wullie but i felt this was different as in he's spoke of his admiration for us and his agent saying some will be surprised, in reality were today linked with steven taylor, give me a ibra fantasy than a taylor reality every time pal.

11.) 04 Jun 2016 14:49:32
A think we are all just wanting a name in and hopefully it will happen soon hail hail.

12.) 05 Jun 2016 04:03:11
Wullie1967 we don't want any names in we want a big name in.

I always enjoy reading the various opinions on this site, but I can't help thinking that some of the reaction to Sundays defeat is a bit over the top.
I've read from some posts that Gordon, Lusting, Boyata, Jozo, Armstrong, Dembele, and even Tierney are not good enough and should be sold on, it almost feels that we are in a relegation battle rather than having just come off a 69 match unbeaten run.
Getting beat was always going to happen at some point, teams that aren't as good as us will always try to find flaws in our game. Hearts pressed us high up the pitch and forced us into making mistakes, it's an area where teams are targeting us lately, but that is what all good teams have to put up with, it doesn't make us a bad team.
Man City are playing some great football at the moment, but I bet that next season teams will have figured out a way to reduce their effectiveness, it won't make Man City a bad team, it's just that teams who can't compete with them for ability will find ways not to be overrun by them.
There is no doubt that we could do with being strengthened in certain areas, you always have to try and keep improving, but I think the magnitude of a 69 match unbeaten run should be considered before ripping apart the team that achieved the feat,


1.) 19 Dec 2017 16:06:50
Totally agree with that. We didn't play well and had a bad day at the office. Also thought that the players didn't handle the pitch well as it looked soft and slippy. Nobody would have thought we could achieve a record run like that and four trophies as well as two five one victories against the new Rangers.
We should all get a grip and stop complaining .

2.) 19 Dec 2017 17:35:27
The defeat was coming for weeks. The players looked jaded and out of sorts. Some of them have played the 6 qualifiers and a few International games but tiredness is no excuse as we should have had decent cover to rest a few of them. Eric and a few others will be going in January and at the end of the season. A few defenders and a good keeper to challenge CG for the long-term.

3.) 19 Dec 2017 18:54:08
To overcome the down turn in our recent form we must return to our high level of pressing all over pitch, from start to finish .
We have missed about 30 days when we could have done intense training, or practised new tactics . Ten and more games played August to December results in 30 lost days. We can't get those back, and so we must do our work on the actual pitch during game .



28 Nov 2017 17:49:35
I wonder if the goons in the press who were begging Motherwell to beat us on Sunday will be begging Aberdeen to win tomorrow night. After all, it would keep Aberdeen in touch with us and would be good for Scottish football.
I somehow doubt it.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 22:42:56
What a thought gerry. We shall watch the print in earnest.

2.) 30 Nov 2017 11:52:03
If Aberdeen win both games, did the old Rangers ever lose four games in a row?



28 Oct 2017 23:28:21
I think that there were maybe too many changes made today.
Although we had 11 good players on the pitch it's not easy to suddenly find the cohesion when they are not used to playing together regularly, add the conditions into the mix and it's not really surprising that we struggled at times.
The manager knows the condition of the players better than I do, but I would rather have started with less changes and a stronger line up, then possibly take players off if we were well ahead in the match.
I'm not trying to be wise after the event, but the 3 home games where we have dropped points seem to be after we have made quite a few changes from the previous games, so it's not really working for us.


1.) 29 Oct 2017 07:40:44
Couldn’t agree more Gerryc. I had a feeling when I heard the line up we might struggle, too many changes, I know he divides opinion, but I think Forrest has been playing really well again lately, players like him need momentum. The centre half situation is really coming back to bite us, Simunovic just can’t seem to stay fit, Steve Clarke is a terrific appointment for killie though.



26 Oct 2017 09:40:15
If ever there was a performance that said "keep your hands off our title" then last night was it.
It wasn't just the score line, but the way we played which sent a message out about how far ahead we are of everyone else.
I was at Hampden on Saturday and thought we looked a bit laboured at times, so I was a bit wary of going to a fired up Pittodrie so soon after, but the manager did a great job in preparing the team and we coasted it.
I don't think there would be many managers who would have left out Sinclair, Roberts, and Griffiths from arguably our toughest domestic game of the season, it shows how in command he is of our team, and it sends a message out that whoever you are, if performances drop he will not hesitate in leaving you out.
Well done to everybody last night.


1.) 26 Oct 2017 10:45:35
It was exhibition football at times and as well as giving the support so much pleasure and satisfaction it will have further instilled a supreme confidence in the players (and manager) of what we they have become as a team.
This month was always going to be a very tough challenge and there were signs of fatigue after the internationals and CL travels but this team never ceases to amaze and delight and long may it continue.

2.) 26 Oct 2017 13:38:18
I agree and I grudgingly have to say that the Ref had a good game also giving credit where it's due.

3.) 26 Oct 2017 18:02:33
Excellent performance, even McInnes was complimentary, absolute master class both in play and tactics.

If the fee for Roberts is way beyond what we can afford then fair enough, if however our board are playing silly games with Man City and we end up losing out on his signature, then I reckon there will be a fair bit of anger amongst the supporters.
With the money we earned last season from the Champions league, the money we will get when Van Djik moves on, and 50.000 season tickets sold, it would be terrible to lose a player of Roberts ability due to us trying to be too clever for our own good.

I think first of all a player has to have ability, the fitness side of things come afterwards.
I think a lot of the modern coaches are only interested in how athletic a player is, it doesn't seem to matter to them if they can actually trap a ball correctly or be able to make a pass to a teammate.
I've said it before, but I wonder how many of the modern coaches would have Jimmy Johnston in their teams?, I reckon a lot of them wouldn't like him dribbling with the ball, and they would no doubt want someone who tracked back better and had a good "engine".
I wouldn't mind betting there are quite a lot of young players out there who didn't make the grade because they were better footballers than athletes.

I thought Rodgers did a good job at Swansea but a poor job at Liverpool. I hope to goodness it's the Rodgers from Swansea that we see and not the Rodgers from Liverpool.
It always looked to me when I saw Liverpool play that he couldn't sort out their defence, if he struggles to sort out our defence then we are going to be in trouble.

By all accounts Sanchez would rather have gone to Man City, it just shows what a mercenary he is that he not only does the dirty on them, but he then signs for their biggest rivals.
The game in England is bonkers. Arsenal get £35m for a player who has only 6 months left on his contract yet the press say they've got a bad deal, whereas Man United pay £35m + sky high wages for a player to play 15 games for them and yet that's seen as a good deal.
I wonder if sanity will ever return to that league.

I wouldn't worry too much about the players Sevco are bringing in. They're nearly all players who cost nothing and can't get a game with the clubs they are at.
If any other team in Scotland were bringing in these players nobody on here would raise an eyebrow, because it's Sevco though some people are getting in a panic.
If you look at the squad they already have and add these players that they are bringing in now, I still don't see one player out of all of them who I wish was in our team.
If they ever start buying players who are better than we have I would start to be concerned, but the state they're in financially, I don't think that'll be anytime soon.

Timmy88, you are right in what you say.
We're in a position where although we are in a position to spend money we can't spend enough to make any difference to the level of success we can get.
We are dominant at home but to go any further in the Champions league we would need to spend between £50-100m, there is no way we can do that.
I do think though that it shouldn't be beyond us to strengthen the team enough to ensure that we have an easier time qualifying for the CL, then if we get there, to avoid some of the heavier defeats that we've suffered in the last couple of years.
We will never be able to sign the Neymar's of this world, but it shouldn't be beyond us to find 1 or 2 players with ability who actually look as if they want to play at that level and don't just stand back in awe of the opposition.

I think it's fine to build for 3 or 4 years down the line, but that isn't any help in getting us into the Champions league next season, or avoiding some heavy defeats if we get there.
I accept the argument about transfer fees, but I can't believe that it would be impossible to strengthen our team if we really wanted to.
As fans, we have had to endure some awful hammerings in the Champions league, the reward for that is the club makes an awful lot of money out of it.
If we are saying that it is impossible to improve our team with a bit of the money we earn from the Champions league, then why exactly are we trying to qualify for it? .
