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.

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.

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 was reading the SFA's reasons for giving Aberdeen more tickets for the final than Celtic.

They say that the East stand at Hampden has less seats than the West stand, if that is the case then how did they manage 50-50 splits before now. Have we always been given less tickets for these games?, and if we haven't been given less tickets, then what on earth is different this time.

I've never been in favour of a 50-50 split on the tickets for the simple reason that I think supporters who go to matches week in and week out should get some priority over fans who never attend matches other than cup finals.

If Celtic had an allocation of 22,000 and Aberdeen were given 18,000, would that be so unfair, after all it would still allow a lot of Aberdeen fans who never go to games to get tickets, and lots of Celtic fans who go week in week out will still miss out.

I'm fortunate in that I have got my ticket for the final, but I feel for supporters who have spent lots of money following the team throughout the winter months but will have to watch the match on television, whilst other fans who probably haven't been to a game since October are deemed more worthy of a ticket.

That was a great way to clinch the title.
I thought that it was interesting to hear Brendan Rodgers talking after the match, he said that even when we were 5-0 ahead he was still kicking the dugout in frustration if we did something wrong. I like to hear that as it shows a desire for us to improve and never settle for the level we are at.
There are a lot of people hostile to us who always try and pour cold water on our achievements, I think that this time they'll have their work cut out as the football we've played this season has been a joy to watch, we were just miles ahead of everyone else.
Well done to everybody at the club, the title win is thoroughly deserved, I would love it if we could add the Scottish cup, that would be some way to mark the 50th anniversary of the Lisbon lions.




12 Mar 2017 21:18:26
The build up to the match had nearly every pundit talking about how easy it was going to be, and how likely it was that we would score 4,5,or even 6.
I think that spurred Sevco on, as because so little was expected from them, they could just get in our faces, knock us about, and be happy in the knowledge that anything under a 3-0 defeat would be seen as some sort of triumph.
Our players on the other hand never really got going, whether this was down to complacency, or they found the expectation hard to handle I'm not really sure.
The positive thing I'll take from the game today is that I don't think Sevco have got any more, that was the best they could do, whilst we probably gave our poorest performance of the season and we still should have won. I'd far rather the players have their off day today when there is nothing really at stake.

I was delighted with the win yesterday, I had a funny Feeling leading up to the game that it might be a bit tougher than it looked on paper and St Mirren were very well organised for the first hour.
I think that looking at the last few matches we are really starting to miss Rogic, although we are still dominating games we seem to be lacking a bit of craft in midfield, it looks to me that we need to have either Roberts or Forrest available as without Rogic they are our best hope for opening up packed defences.
I doubt very much that Roberts will be here next season, so as Rogic is very injury prone, I think it's something that Brendan will have to look closely at in the close season.


1.) 06 Mar 2017 14:32:59
Been saying for weeks we are missing Rogic totally agree can't wait for the wizard of Oz to return.

2.) 06 Mar 2017 17:29:53
Anybody know when he's due back?

3.) 06 Mar 2017 18:28:32
My team for sunday is

I cannot see why LG can't play the 10 role as well as Rogic.
Rogic is quality but clearly not the fittest/ Quickest or hard working the way he should be for this team.
LG has pace got goals (obv) and works hard, I think he could play this role easily and could also go beyond Dembele which Rogic wont.
Considering this sevco team ain't that good their defence is all over the place, just look at the goals in our team.
Thoughts lads.

4.) 06 Mar 2017 20:58:28
Ray that's my team as well griffs got goals and work rate. unless he goes with bitton and changes it if its needed.

5.) 07 Mar 2017 00:23:09
Rayman - I thought not being the quickest, being fit or hard working shouldn't have been a problem to get in the team last year?



02 Mar 2017 15:10:54
I was truly saddened to hear of Tommy's passing, he will always be a legend in my eyes. My earliest memories of football came from seeing a lot of the Lisbon lions from the late sixties onwards, these players were like Gods to me.
With the news last week about Billy McNeill having dementia, the only thing I can do is thank these legends for the pleasure and pride that they have given to us over the years, and realise how lucky we are that it was our club that benefited from their brilliance.


1.) 02 Mar 2017 16:04:30
Couldn't agree more Gerry c 2 wonderful ambassadors for the Celtic family. Rest in peace, big Tam 🍀 🙏🏼.

2.) 02 Mar 2017 16:35:19
Will miss you big tommy thanks for the great moments, through the years. The difference between celtic and other teams we don't abuse our hero's,

3.) 02 Mar 2017 17:43:02
This is not a time for point scoring , it's a time for showing one of our true legends how much we respected him . God bless big tam .

I'm glad Dembele wasn't subbed in the semi final.

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.

When I was driving back from the match on Sunday, the talk on the radio was that Commons is going to coach one of the youth teams.
He loves Glasgow, and his kids are settled in school.
I don't know if it's true or not, but that's what they were talking about.


{Ed007's Note - They are staying in Glasgow so it could be possible.}

My thoughts and prayers are with the innocent victims in this tragedy.
I'm not sure that these atrocities have anything to do with bombing Muslim countries, this Islamic state seem to commit murder and savagery as much in Muslim countries as they do in the West.
They just seem to enjoy violence, how can you reason with that?

I would be happier if no Celtic players were involved with Scotland. This match against England is not being played for a fortnight after the Cup final, with the Champions league qualifiers starting not long afterwards, it's not giving our players much of a rest.
I don't know who arranges these fixtures, but it seems a stupid time to play it, if nothing else a lot of the players won't have played a match for 3 weeks.

If Scotland ever won the World cup, they would probably say that it counted for nothing if none of their players were in the team.
Their bitterness is almost comical.

I don't think that it matters how strong the opposition is, to go through a whole season unbeaten domestically is some achievement.
There is no point comparing different sides, MON's team never reached the last 16 of the Champions league whereas Gordon Strachan's and Neil Lennon's teams did, and they never spent the type of money that MON had to spend.
I'm in no way criticising MON, he was a brilliant manager for us, I'm just saying that you could pick faults with any team.
This current team is a good team, we as supporters should enjoy it, I personally will never tire of seeing my team winning well and entertaining us.
