There are seven players leaving this summer, I believe their combined wages ammount to £100,000 per week this would equate to 4 players at £25,000 per week these would improve the team considerably.


1.) 14 Feb 2017 20:14:31
Why not 2 players? B. R has already stated he could break the current transfer record, I personally would rather have 2 players of a higher calibre on 50 grand. Obv a player that would command 100 grand a week would be to hard to attract to scotland and the transfer fee would be ridiculous but I feel 50grand should be within our budget.

2.) 15 Feb 2017 09:01:06
£50k for one or two players may be within our budget Augustus but then when our other top performers start asking for the same it becomes an issue.

3.) 16 Feb 2017 00:08:36
I'd be very surprised if we spent the whole 100k. We have trimmed the wage budget year on year near enough since the mon era. If as you said 7 going and 100k is there, say a few still under contract go we should have a bit to play with. If we can trim by 10 and add 2 with pedigree and 3 more ready for the 1st team we are in a great place for having a proper go at Europe. Just hope the skelper stays regardless. His sale would result in a better squad if his fee was invested but it doesn't mean a thing if your can't get em goals!

4.) 18 Feb 2017 09:41:42
We will probably need to replace Izzy, would be good to get an attacker who can play LW/ CAM who can push Rogic and Sinclair and provide cover (Onyekuru) sign up Roberts too but we still have him on loan for the time being. Get rid of both Bailly and De Vries and get a good commanding keeper in.


De Vries
Still need to lose a CB.



05 Dec 2016 16:43:29
See RB Leipzjg have joined the bidding for Moussa. This could be good news 25 mill + Oliver Burke or 30 Mill from Real Madrid with a loan back for a year would be good news.


1.) 06 Dec 2016 15:43:45
I can honestly see him getting shot of the wee man hope I'm wrong he's done nothing wrong to be put out of the team one injury and that's it. Think Rodgers won't stand for the rotten attitude but hopefully he works with him gets him back in the team there is no doubt LG is 100% committed to us he gives his all on the pitch and he'd definitely have something plenty to offer to a team in the BPL don't want to loose him.

2.) 06 Dec 2016 17:05:40
How the hell could the unsubstantiated rumour about any bid for a top player like Dembele be good news . Dembele has repeated time and time again that he has no interest in leaving .
I thought it was bad enough the MSSM doing their best to unsettle him., without people who claim to be Celtic supporters doing the same.

3.) 06 Dec 2016 22:48:45
Guys, just by repeating these unsubstantiated rumours you're all adding fuel to the fire. Until BR and CFC make it clear otherwise then neither Griff nor Moussa are going anywhere. Can't we just leave it like that instead of listening to every feckin granny and her dog? HH.



10 Jul 2015 11:26:40
See Denayer wants to leave city we should push the boat out and get this guy in asap Then if VVD leaves he would be no great loss


1.) 10 Jul 2015 13:21:03
Not sure bout the truth of this story in the press. Says he wants to leave City if not guaranteed first team football. He'd be very lucky to get into the first team never mind be guaranteed a place!

2.) 10 Jul 2015 13:23:48
No chance mate! He's in the Belgium national team now! He'll have plenty of offers in EPL or abroad! We done well for him and he done well for us,but he won't come back to the shitty league we play in! And it just proves how shite it is with that result from tommy(mourinho)wrights diddy team last nite! Embarssing!

3.) 10 Jul 2015 14:07:38
We should through a 5m bid in to test the water! It's as safe an investment as we could get!

4.) 10 Jul 2015 16:29:30
That was obviously a joke there mate wasn't it? 5 million!! On one player! A can hear Lawells heart racing from here lol

5.) 10 Jul 2015 19:27:14
5m probably wouldn't buy him but now joke if he wants to leave I'd be happy to Ity us spending that sort of cash on a known quality like denayer!

6.) 10 Jul 2015 22:34:26
He already said he did'nt want to come back here on loan as he wanted to try a stronger league,he hardly going to come here full time,or did I read that quote wrong

7.) 11 Jul 2015 09:00:00
Maybe so but if we qualify for the CL it might be different story but I don't expect us to sign him! At least he would be wanted here and he seems more interested in football than money!

8.) 11 Jul 2015 12:35:57
A £5m fee will render Lawell a gibbering, troubled wreck.

More chance of my cat developing a love for the works of Solzhenitsyn than us spending that kind of cash.

I see Eboue getting a little stick today; all justified. I beleive he will take time to settle and we won't see him start a game until next season. I was disappointed Hill was not given a place on the bench ahead of Eboue after outperforming him in the development side. How can we expect our own youngsters to believe in themselves if players who are bought in are first choice even if you play better.


1.) 19 Mar 2017 21:25:09
Jonace, I suppose when you spend £2m on a player there is a pressure to show that the money hasn't been wasted.
There is a tendency in football where clubs would rather pay money for players rather than go with their own youngsters. Man Utd sold Pogba for around £5m, then spent £89m to buy him back. Chelsea sold Lukaku to Everton for I think it was £17m, and now a couple of years later want to spend £50m to bring him back.
It's as if clubs can only see how good a player is when they play for someone else.

{Ed007's Note - Pogba left Utd on a free after refusing to use one of Fergie's cronies as his agent and the compensation was around £800,000 which also had to be shared with Le Havre where Utd signed him from (a move FIFA investigated) and a couple of other small French clubs.}

2.) 20 Mar 2017 09:45:24
There was some expectation and anticipation, as the player came with a good reputation and decent price tag.
However unlike other 'foreign imports' he does seem to be taking a lot longer to get up to speed and looks pretty raw and will probably take a while to develop?



10 Mar 2017 17:38:02
Reading McCoist's comments from afar ( I live in the south of england) He says Dembele is not a 30 Million player then state that P Lawwell may get 30-40 Million for the player Dah that makes him a 30 Million player. Does he not understand the English language or is he so badly educated he cannot constuct a complete sentence?
In a way he is correct if Mousa stays for another season he will be worth 50+. I hope France give him a start in the next games on the form that he is in he could score a record against Luxemborg.


1.) 10 Mar 2017 22:17:55
I don't think Dembele is a £40 mill player either. We will do well to get £25mill. What would make a difference is being called up and playing for France. If he did well then we may get £30m. Everyone saying he is off in the summer? Not so sure. Maybe stay for another season. Hope so. Think BR is building something special.

2.) 11 Mar 2017 17:22:12
Jonace. that's not really what Sally Mcmoist said.
Reading it, wether it it be locally or from afar as like you are, that's the problem.
It's not miles off but it's not what he said and that's what the Scottish media love, the smallest detail and people bite.

3.) 11 Mar 2017 19:31:48
Don't know how McCoist can have the neck to put a value on a players selling price, he already showed his lack of expertise in valuing a player when Andy Robertson, played three times against his team in the bottom division, he didn't see his potential, as for Dembelle, the sky is the limit if a couple of clubs with deep pockets both want him, and if you look at the crazy money lesser talents go for in England and abroad, upwards of 40 millions wouldn't be a surprise.



10 Mar 2017 13:18:18
I see a lot of people are picking there team for Sunday, The thing that is quite significant is that the team and formation almost picks itself.

The only debate is Erik or Simo, Paddy or Jamesy. This is the sign of a very good side Yes we have Griff, Tom, Issi, Gamboa, MacG and Liam if we need to change style or get an injury but the team is always the same group.


1.) 10 Mar 2017 15:11:02
Jonace I'd honestly rather have Erik and Jozo because I think they're both better than Boyata. I prefer Roberts to Forrest but if Forrest is fit I'd try and get 45/ 60 minutes out of him and then let Paddy rip them apart for the remainder.

2.) 10 Mar 2017 16:21:14
I think they will do what st mirren did and let boyata have the ball. so I'd go with jozo and sviatchenko. Although jozo ain't the best passer, boyata panics.

3.) 10 Mar 2017 16:46:57
If both wingers are available? I would prefer Biton out of the starting line up as he slows the play down and loses possession too often; however I feel BR will go with:-
Lustig Simunovic Schiavchenko Tierney
Forrest/ Roberts Brown Biton Armstrong Sinclair
As this seems to be his preferred formation?

4.) 11 Mar 2017 16:59:21
Lustig canny decide Tierney

Think Boyata and Shevchenko are too accident prone and need to be replaced if we want to progress in Europe. We are weak in central defence.

Midfield of

Button, Broon Armstrong, Roberts

Sinclair and Dembele

Probably go with Simo and Boyata in CB

Rigers will go with Shevchenko and Boyata.



21 Feb 2017 16:34:07
Two comments to post today
1 since Saturday i have read and heard excuses, as to why the ref did not send off Bowman; for the tackle on young Tierney.
None of which really stand close examination. It was a horror challenge and Tierney's reaction alone told you it was a really bad tackle. He has never faked a tackle in all his time in the green and white. He and I thought he was going to spend more time in crutches as he lay on the ground. Excuses like Bowman got the ball, No celtic player reacted or the ref was not in a good position are all crass it was a straight red.

2 this is going to get me slated but i have to say it. I have been mildly impressed listening to B Ferguson on radio Scotland recently. He was definately a pratt in previous times but since going to Clyde he seems to have grown up lost the privledges of mollycoddled professional footballer and understood the troubles of a working supporter and part time player. He has not been promoting serco nor demeaning Celtic. Therei have said now start shooting me down.


1.) 21 Feb 2017 22:55:02
I'll happily shoot you down jonace, for point 1 and not point 2. Even BR said he didn't think the player went for KT. He blamed it on the pitch. Yes, contact was made and it could have ended badly but let's be thankful it didn't.
As for point 2, I have no opinion on Ferguson. HH.



19 Feb 2017 17:21:27
Couple of points from the weekend

First Dembele great to see he took time to contact the dad he met at Nandos and and arrange to meet up with him and his young son. A club like no other that is why we are supporters not because of some passed religous disagreement.

Two Kilmarnock lost it today really sad was hoping to see the league won by march 12th when i will be in Glasgow stilltrying to get a ticket.

Three what a sad side this new club are, these are poor players masqueradeing as footballers well done Dundee.


1.) 19 Feb 2017 21:58:51
Dembele really buying into what our great club is all about, really like this guy, we should enjoy him while he's here.
Not too disappointed with Killie, the leagues won anyway, we can still wind them up.
And I have it on good authority that Garner will be suspended for the game at Paradise but Celtic will appeal!

2.) 20 Feb 2017 12:46:37
I hope Dembele stays for another season to develop and hone his skills under BR. It would be great to hold onto him and he makes the french squad for next year's world cup. Mabe ZZ will want him and loan him to us for another year. It would be a good scenario with him still here and crazy money banked.

3.) 20 Feb 2017 16:15:27
You only support Celtic to hate rangers. It's what you all live for! Look at your last sentence - you don't love Celtic, you love hating Rangers.

4.) 20 Feb 2017 17:42:21
I don't hate Rangers Cee, I find it very funny that you are all so delusional and you can't see what a fraud your chairman and board are. We went through this over 20yrs ago and look at us now. The problem is that your "new" club are in a far worse position than we ever were. We had great people willing to help us, all you and your pathetic club have are charlatans and fraudsters and not enough of you are willing to say so. So hell mend you all for that, there will be years of pain ahead for you all and I for one have no sympathy.

5.) 20 Feb 2017 18:32:05
Cee, the irony of your post is that your old club went out of business in a vain attempt to match our achievements, they could never stomach us winning the European cup and spent money that wasn't theirs out of sheer jealousy.
Your new club haven't learned a thing, instead of trying to get the club on a sound financial footing, all the new club seem interested in is somehow trying to stop Celtic, instead of accepting realities, your support are taken in by any crook and fraudster who takes control, you've been taken in by, Murray, White, Green, and if that wasn't enough you are now being taken in by a convicted tax cheat.
The only thing that these chancers have done for you is to claim to be real Rangers men, and make stupid promises that none of them could keep.
The fact you keep coming on these pages to see what Celtic fans are saying, shows that it's you who are obsessed with us rather than the other way round, you should be more concerned with the lies that you are fed by the people running your club, and your support in general should stop being so gullible in believing them.

6.) 20 Feb 2017 18:51:19
Well said gerryc, my point exactly. Cee was probably one of the deluded fans who thought their troubles began when they moved down the leagues as a new club should.
My own personal feeling was that their troubles wouldn't really start until they were in the top league and struggling against so called lesser opposition, never mind our Celtic.
We are miles ahead of them and if I was you Cee, heaven forbid, I would be standing outside greyskull screaming for that non-board to stand down like we did and we got the bunnett but that would require forward thinking.

7.) 20 Feb 2017 19:58:43
I guess Cee you are only on here spreading love aren't you mate!

8.) 21 Feb 2017 10:18:25
Spot on gerryc, cee just got served.

This is being hyped by the English press and Arsenal as they want Tierney on the cheap. By offering Willock at an over inflated price.

Dont see this just left ajax after not playing for over a year did not play much before that due to injury. has just signed 4 year deal at copenhagen not even played a game yet.

This is paper talk put out by the player, agents or the selling club to create interest in a player who cannot get a game for Palace, Ziyech at Ajax looks the real deal and with St Juste as a back 3 would improve us no end.

I don't see this with the excecption of St Juste, Samiras is at Benfica and has 2.5yrs on his contract they will not let him go cheap and we won't pay big. Park Jo Hoo is 29 why would you buy a 29 year old back up Azamoun is again to pricy for back up striker.

Thank god for someone else who has seen that Sviatchenko is to slow for defence, yes he has good points but in todays game pace is vital. I too think he has cost us goals in big games, and that means Europe where we will face real tests.
Check my previous posts i suggested months ago moving him into midfield in place of Biton where his strength, tackling will gives us a powerful midfield and he can stide forward to provide hieght in the penalty area. I know we have bought Kouassi but he is young and raw. Why does he not get selected for his country.

Agree completely have you just seen the disgrcefull tackle by Garner and only a yellow card, I wonder what Smith and McCann will say that he got the ball and did not touch the man. The hamilton man obviously dived.

I remember D Mcgrain breaking the line against Wales in the home internationals. He tackled their LB on the half way line and sprinted through on his own only to be fouled in the penalty area by the backtracking welsh defender. Ref was so far behind he was still in the scotland half and did not give a penalty. He was world class that day, electic pace and tackled like a demon. No one could get past him and remember he could play on the left too. I also have a memory of JS setting a tactical master class against Hibs when he pulled he whole team to the left and Mcgrain on the right to destroy their defence.
