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.

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 see that Rogic got a one match ban for celebrating scoring the winner that won us the treble, meanwhile no action is to be taken against Stockley for elbowing Tierney in the face and breaking his jaw.
If anything sums up how inept the SFA are, then surely that is it.


1.) 30 May 2017 19:56:22
Rogic has nobody to blame but himself for picking up too many bookings, although I'm sure it was well worth it!

2.) 30 May 2017 21:47:12
it should not be a bookable offense to run to your fans or take your shirt of celebrating a goal it's almost as bad as American football where the NFL decide what type of celebrations are acceptable. for me unless your standing in front of the opposing fans/ bench giving the old up your's it should be all good.

3.) 30 May 2017 22:01:28
Agree with kevbhoy, although it was a great goal and worthy of celebration, all players know when they leave the field and run into the fans they are getting booked.



28 May 2017 21:23:14
I just wanted to say how proud I was of the team yesterday.
With the anniversary of the Lisbon lions, doing a treble for only the fourth time in our history, and probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to go through an entire domestic season unbeaten, the pressure on these players was absolutely massive.
I think that because Aberdeen turned up and made a match of it, the win seemed even more special.
I must admit that when Brendan Rodgers was appointed last year, I wasn't totally convinced he was the best choice. I'd seen that for a while as Liverpool's boss they couldn't defend to save their lives, and I feared that he might be another Tony Mowbray, where we were okay going forward but defensively a shambles.
The job he's done here though has been magnificent, the way he has improved several players, the team spirit that he's created, and his tactical knowledge, has absolutely transformed us. I've not enjoyed watching a Celtic team as much as this one for many years.
My only worry looking ahead to next season is that how can you top this, I mean we could win the treble again, yet if we lost one league match, some people would say that we couldn't match the achievements of the previous season, that's how high the bar has been set.
Well done Brendan and the team, you have earned your own place in Celtic's history.


1.) 28 May 2017 23:31:13
Think a lot of us were the same Gerry I have to admit he wasn't my first choice after some of the Liverpool stuff but as good managers and players do he has learned from his mistakes and has done an unbelievable job and lifted the entire support let's hope it's just the start. H.H.

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.




02 Apr 2017 18:55:06
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.

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'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.

The advantage of signing Roberts is that we know exactly what we are getting, once you have to start looking elsewhere for players, you may end up with a player who although talented, may not settle in as well, and also someone who doesn't have the same liking for the club that Paddy seems to.

Fair enough ED, I stand corrected.


{Ed007's Note - It's peanuts really when you see what players are going for down south - £250k for Waghorn(pen) is absolute madness!}

I wouldn't judge ntcham too early, last season I wasn't overly impressed with Dembele in his early games and he turned out okay.
The thing that amazes me though, is how players can be worth £4.5m when they have played none or very little first team football.
Sadly, with the Neymar transfer, fees are only going to get even more ridiculous.


{Ed007's Note - Ntcham played over 40 games for Genoa whilst on a 2-year loan there, Gerry and still had 3 seasons to run on his City contract. English clubs were being quoted £6 million and European clubs were being told Ntcham would cost 5 million Euros as long as they allowed City to have a buy-back clause or 7 million Euros to buy him outright.}

I think we could right off buying players of any quality if we switched to summer football.
It's maybe not a popular view, but I think that there are far too many teams in Scotland. If you take a 40 mile radius of Celtic park, there must be 20 or 30 clubs within it, that's far too many when you haven't got much talent to go round.
I think that fewer but bigger clubs would be a better bet, rather than changing the calendar. I can't see it happening though.

I didn't see the match last night although I saw the goal this morning.
I was delighted with the result, it showed a lot of character, it's the sort of match we may have lost in previous seasons.
I had a feeling that Rosenborg wouldn't come out too much, when you don't score an away goal it leaves you very vulnerable and their main aim would be to stop us scoring.
It will be tough in the play off round, we've played a few of the teams before and the ties have all been very close. The thing is though that we have beaten these teams before, and we look to be a stronger side now.
