Reports in Holland suggesting we are interested in PSV right back Joshua Brenet.




18 May 2017 08:31:53
I've heard that Brendan has 5 main targets for the summer and prepered to spend round £15m mark.

Joe Gomez - Liverpool (£3.5m)
James McCarthy - Everton (£6.5m)
Henry Onyekuru - Eupen (£4m)
Patrick Roberts - Man City (500k Loan)
Dominic Solanke - Chelsea (500k)

If a deal can't be done for Roberts then there's a winger who plays for Partizan Belgrade who would be our next option.


1.) 18 May 2017 09:27:05
No chance one or two will come in depending on who goes CB and a number 10 and maybe if we are lucky Wee paddy Roberts.

2.) 18 May 2017 10:32:22
cant see us getting Gomez or McCarthy that cheap tbh, not with the overinflated prices down there, onyekuru will go to mid table EPL team, id be happy wi paddy on a new deal atm, armstrong also, don't think we will be shopping for EPL players, wages would scupper most for a start.

3.) 18 May 2017 10:57:25
If we didn't lose any key players, shipped out those who aren't needed, and brought in those five, I'd be a happy tim.

4.) 18 May 2017 11:33:32
Spot on JimTim, I'm n agreement with u mate n even getting rid of a few n bringing in Roberts solanke n onyekuru etc I'd be happy, it's just the right quality in certain positions. I would be over the moon however if we brought in a top goalkeeper Roberts n even solanke or onyekuru or another forward type, the keeper position is one i think needs addressed asap, specially for champions league.
We have a good squad so far n we will only improve, with a good bit of investment we could see progression in Europe n Being there regularly as well as racking up trophies, glasgows green and white the futures green and white.

5.) 18 May 2017 13:27:42
Bigshaw, I've been banging on about how I think we've regressed from Forster to Gordon since it happened. I've warmed to Gordon a bit more, but has he really been tested? At European level I would like to give him a chance and hope the big mistakes are behind him, but I fear there might just be a blunder there waiting to happen.

6.) 18 May 2017 13:39:22
Actually, what am I saying. I'd like a new keeper.

7.) 18 May 2017 13:50:30
JimTim, in my opinion Gordon has stepped up and made some amazing and crucial saves. He is a quality keeper but we do need something new, I was hoping the Costil rumour would be floating around for a bit longer but I really think Gordon is for Rodgers, can't see anyone new coming in sadly.

8.) 18 May 2017 14:34:59
Would love us to go for someone like Sigurdsson from Swansea but I feel he is out of range now with Swansea staying up.

9.) 18 May 2017 15:52:43
CG has went up in my estimations Ken, the overriding feeling though is it's a position we've went backwards in.

Let's not forget mind, BR did try to replace CG. I think most of us on here said at the time De Vries wasn't the answer. Thankfully BR wasn't stubborn and showed good management by going back on a decision. Sometimes managers show too much loyalty to a signing.

I'd love us to stump up for a younger bit of quality. Timo Horn I've mentioned on here for quite a while. Alban Lafont looks the dog's but he's probably out of our reach. Or Karius at Liverpool. He looked really promising in Germany but has found it hard for games. Worth a cheeky bid.

10.) 18 May 2017 17:25:30
Ed007 said it best he's a great number 1 just not for Celtic. He has made some decent saves n kept us in games here n there but there have been too many karate kick moments, blinder saves etc that i feel while comfortable at spfl level i feel we need a better goalkeeper for Europe. I look at a goalkeeper n dontjudge them solely on the but allow me to throw this out there, when looking at a goalkeeper i think is he going to save a last minute penalty or a big moment penalty when the pressures really on n i just don't see that with Gordon. Boruc n Forrester i always had faith in in that situation.
Don't get me wrong JimTim i agree mate with u and the others he has improved under Brendan but i just feel we need someone of top quality in that position.
We r not far away from a really good side with a couple leaving n the right quality coming in we have a bright future. So so hope we get Paddy signed up permanently or for at least another year with a view to permanent as he is absolute class n will go on to be a top player. He is that lubo, Nakamura, type player n delivers in Scotland as well as Europe.
As always great to be a Tim.
Hail hail.

11.) 18 May 2017 20:16:44
Not really sure about Mccarthy at 6.5 million. Not sure we're he'd fit in.

12.) 19 May 2017 01:16:50
Mat Ryan - Valencia would have to be considered should we need a new keeper. Out on loan and would be a great pick up, fits the bill perfectly for us.

13.) 19 May 2017 10:19:40
Sure I read that Bournemouth were interested in 10million rated joe Gomez.

14.) 26 May 2017 12:40:57
McCarthy would fit in to our team like a glove, be an amazing signing. He would be my number 1 signing, love this guy n he's a tim from glasgow n would run through brick walls for us, and he is pure class. hh.



12 Jan 2017 21:43:46
Bastia offer Ambrose a 2 year contract.

Boyata has knocked back Anderlecht as he wants to go back to England.

O'Connell away on loan to Wasall.

Ajer and Henderson are also supposed to be close to completing loan deals.

Espanyol and Fulham set to make bids for Bitton.

Only player not heard anything about is Ciftci.


1.) 12 Jan 2017 22:05:58
Heard that ambrose might sit it out to end of the season because he will be eligible for citizenship.



17 Nov 2016 11:29:55
This over the next 2 transfer windows would be amazing.

RB - Calum Paterson
CB - Jerry St Juste
CM - James McCarthy or Dave Ki
FWD - Saido Berahino or Sardar Azmoun



1.) 17 Nov 2016 11:52:42
Might just be me but I really don't get why some fans want Patterson brought in! The guy is average at best! I've seen nothing from him to say he would be a good addition! We need to aim for better than that IMO!

2.) 17 Nov 2016 12:10:11
Wouldn't touch berahino with a barge pole.

3.) 17 Nov 2016 13:53:47
juste and mccarthy for me,

4.) 17 Nov 2016 13:56:22
Why would we want Gamboa out . Keeping a player 4/ 5 months and then getting rid of him would give a poor impression to players we may be interested in.

5.) 17 Nov 2016 14:11:19
Gamboa out. Gee the guy a chance for feck sake.

6.) 17 Nov 2016 15:41:49
Gutted tho.
When barton signs he'll get his immediate 1 match suspension.

Green whyte and barton. that's why you know there's a god and he's a tim.

7.) 17 Nov 2016 16:32:38
Wiss, agree totally don't rate Patterson at all n is he better than what we have? no so pointless signing, i'd only take McCarthy n St juste, I do feel that simo n big Erik should be our defensive pairing n would be happy with another midfielder (McCarthy or other) n a permanent deal for Roberts.
I would however be cool with going with Armstrong n Henderson in beside brown if we didn't sign a partner for brown as I want to see both of them progress n that only happens with game time added to the other aspects. Gamboa needs time but I'd agree with the op on a few outgoings.

8.) 17 Nov 2016 17:10:16
Azmouns record looks rotten, what's the big deal about this guy? Agree on The Gamboa front, give him a chance.

9.) 17 Nov 2016 17:12:54
Keep on forgetting we have the big man Ajer for that holding Mid role. think he is going to be a great player from the little I've seen so far, but reckon he'll get his chance next season.

10.) 17 Nov 2016 20:04:45
Honestly don't see why every1 is banging on about McCarthy! His form for Everton and Ireland when he's played has been really poor. I just don't get the hype, he is an ok player. We can do better than that, not to mention his wages 😳.

11.) 17 Nov 2016 21:08:46
Remember Sinclair wasn't exactly on top form at Villa, so surely McCarthy should provide what we need? The confidence boost playing for us may be what he needs! But obviously I understand the wage demand and there are other players out there.

12.) 18 Nov 2016 09:16:29
Plenty on here didn't want sinclair and he us strolling it and so would Mccarthy just amazed some on here don't see it.

13.) 18 Nov 2016 18:22:48
I need to admit that I've been a regular listener to Clyde phone in for years but after the way big fat Derek Johnstone has put down moussa dembele tonight I will no longer listening while he is polluting our airwaves big Sutton was right to nothing more than a trifc spokesman; aka an arsehole.

14.) 22 Nov 2016 12:12:23
What did Cheerleader Supreme say about Mousa?

Trying to question the value being put on him I bet. Johnstone is thick as. Sutton nailed him.

He is as articulate as a village idiot recovering from a tragic head mangling incident involving the back wheels of a tractor.

Without the laughs.



01 Aug 2016 12:29:30
ED. Have you heard anything about these 2 players?

Darko Brašanac - Partizan
Haris Duljević - FK Sarajevo

Supposedly we are interested in them.


1.) 01 Aug 2016 17:48:52
I've not heard of either of these players!
Darko Brašanac Seems to be a central midfielder watched a few clips of him on YouTube wasn't overly impressed looked very avarage.
Haris Duljević Seems to be a left winger attack midfielder he looks decent bit of a flare player with some nice finishes!
Not that YouTube is anything to go by I remember watching Beram Kayal when we were first linked with him his video made him look like Xavi and Iniests love child! He had all the skills! None of which we Seen at Celtic.

2.) 01 Aug 2016 18:12:15
I never heard tell of either of them . Are they footballers? If so what position do they play.

3.) 01 Aug 2016 18:49:26
Bit unfair to say that about kayal gaz. Kayals twice the player brown is.

4.) 01 Aug 2016 19:06:33
yeah harsh on kayal who before elbows almost ended his career was in my opinion looking like a real class act.

5.) 01 Aug 2016 19:11:14
Bit of a stretch that yayo, I'd say Kayal was more mobile, but nothing else. It's funny the amount of sensible fans (and pro managers) that see something in Brown when so many don't.

6.) 01 Aug 2016 19:17:18
Got to agree yayo! Kayal was looking a class player before that bawbag did what he does best got a hold of him! Seen him a few times for Brighton since he went and he's played really well!

7.) 01 Aug 2016 22:15:28
Jim Tim, I agree completely S Brown has been among our top 3 players most seasons since he joined us . He wouldn't be a favourite of the MSSM and it now appears he is becoming the second least liked Celtic player by a number of our posters.

8.) 01 Aug 2016 22:22:07
The same pro managers that are fooled by Efe Ambrose and James Forrest?

9.) 01 Aug 2016 22:41:55
Bit different DG, I'd say with both JF and EA, our managers have pretty much have their hands tied.

10.) 02 Aug 2016 01:23:13
Anyone is twice the player Brown is!

11.) 02 Aug 2016 02:10:22
Just wish we would start getting a move on. 5 days away from the league starting n we've got in a free transfer and a compensation fee player and although I am very happy with both those players it'd just be nice to see some cash spent.

12.) 02 Aug 2016 04:04:23
Can't disagree with you there DG. Whilst I'm happy with Dembele and Toure also, by the time you take out our departures, we're probably up again. That's all fair enough for the balance sheets, but it means there has been no 'investment' so to speak. Yet again it's speculate to accumulate, or a lack of. And unless something (s) significant happen over the next few days, leaving tje bare minimum in terms of settling in for the play-off round, I'd have to say that the paying fans (not me this term) have been taken for a bit of a ride again.

13.) 02 Aug 2016 12:06:05
Celtic, Worlds No 1 Club for raising your hopes then totally ignoring them.

They have the season ticket money already stuffed into the tin.

That tin lid is made of the hardest substance known to man, after dried in weetabix. Obviously.

14.) 02 Aug 2016 13:18:26
Agree with oldbhoy and Jimtim. Most people forget how often we've struggled without Brown in the team and when he returns we all rave about missing him. Short memories fans have nowadays.

15.) 02 Aug 2016 16:20:16
I agree CMC, and I would add he looks sharper this season
As for new signings IMO the players we are targeting to come in will be dependant if we progress past Wednesday whether that is a Dependant with the club or the players themselves I don't know but I think that is the situation.

16.) 02 Aug 2016 16:23:03
Don't understand how people can disagree that it's time to get a move on n spend money. Fans getting taking for a ride as usual.

17.) 02 Aug 2016 20:41:20
Cmc do you forget last season when we where scoring goals for fun and then brown comes back against aberdeen an we get humped. We play a lot better when he's not in the team. Last game of season prime example also don't think he played at tannadice and against hamilton all high goal scoring games. Been plenty more games too.

07 Jun 2017 12:20:07
Really looking forward to see what happens in this transfer window once the management get back from there holidays, liking the look of some of the players we have been linked with so far.

Obviously Patrick Roberts

Martin Caceres
Jean-Kevin Duverne
Fabian Delph
Luca Leiva
Henry Onyekuru
Johnny Hayes
Sadar Azmoun.


1.) 07 Jun 2017 13:37:11
Caceres - he was a good player. Worth breaking the bank for? Not sure.

Duverne - can't comment as to whether he'd even make the first team but some top sides are watching him. Could we loan him out? And what about Ajer though, got high hopes for him.

Delph - never understood any hype.

Lucas - not for me. It'll have to be a special CM to break Broony and Armstrong up.

Onyekuru - very exciting. Too much of a risk though with his antics at 7m.

Hayes - squad player.

Azmoun - looks a classy forward. Would be disappointed if he was Dembele's replacement though.

Paddy Roberts - Yes, Yes, Yes. He's capable of unlocking defences at any level. He's got the skillset and bravery to take anybody on, he's added to the defensive/ pressing side of things and will only get better. Pay the 8m.

2.) 07 Jun 2017 14:16:51
Average PL players have the potential to be stars in our league, sinclair being the example, i wouldn't mind lucas on a free tbh, sell bitton, tbh its roberts back in some capacity that excites me the most on that list, delph is a merc imo, onyekuru had his chance but looks like a dosh chaser, if we get hayes which im still not convinced of he will be cover for sinclair, dunno much about the CB and ST.

3.) 07 Jun 2017 14:29:21
Do you think we will sign onyekeru. hayes . and Roberts.? . liked the look of the boy cyle larin worth a punt? . if moussa to chelski deal in van ginkel and christianson as part of deal. as you say jimTim Lucas and delph? As we still have to see what kouassi can do (possibly ajer in there also) guy I work with supports killie and says he's class.

4.) 07 Jun 2017 14:42:57
Brendans training ajer as a CB mate, think that's where he played when he was on loan bud.

5.) 07 Jun 2017 15:41:33
Onyekuru never had a chance Wonderbhoy, his club knocked back our offer and now have agreed a £6.8M fee with Arsenal. I wouldn't be surprised to see him get a decent amount of game time there tbh.

6.) 07 Jun 2017 16:51:11
Fair doos Kev, didn't know that.

7.) 07 Jun 2017 18:44:51
I imagine most of those listed are not real targets of Brendan Rodgers . Our media never concern themselves with the truth.

8.) 07 Jun 2017 21:36:00
Meant to say Bhoywonder before not wonderbhoy lol.

9.) 08 Jun 2017 08:03:06
@ DRB; I'd have Van Ginkel over both of those players. Christensen is class but we'd do incredibly well to sign him. Tbh, I'm trying not to think about what I'd do with the 'Dembele Dollars'. And as for Kouassi we were told he's a talent so let's just wait until he settles in and gets a run 👍.

10.) 08 Jun 2017 08:12:33
@Wonderbhoy; Would you split Armstrong and Brown up for Lucas? Push Armstrong forward? Or just get him in as competition? He's a good player Lucas, I'm just not sure what he's really good at if that makes sense and it would all depend on the price.

11.) 08 Jun 2017 14:34:12
I don't rate bitton jim, so to get a player like lucas on a free, and a fee for bitton makes sense to me.

12.) 08 Jun 2017 15:56:51
i think the silence is a good thing, it says to me that we are just going about our business quietly behind the scenes.

13.) 08 Jun 2017 16:49:38
If we got Lucas in for the money we'd get from the sale of Bitton and his freed wages, It wouldn't be a step backwards I'll say that much. My guess would be he's on a good 60k a week though. He doesn't improve the first team for me, simply, but in terms of consistency and experience he would raise the squad. I like the idea of the player I think Bitton could be, rather than what he's shown at a consistent level and I think it's time we tried to improve his slot if we're being ruthless. I guess I'm just hoping for somebody else.



26 Jan 2017 21:31:16
So with 5 days of the transfer window left. who would we all like to see come in and leave?

IN -
Henry Onyekuru
Number 10

Permanent - Bailly, Ambrose, Bitton, Commons, GMS, Ciftci
LOAN - Henderson

I think with a few youth players added, this would be a very good squad to work with.

GK - Gordon, De Vries, Fasan
RB - Lustig, Gamboa
LB - Tierney, Izaguirre
CB - Sviatchenko, Simunovic, Boyata, Toure
CM - Brown, Armstrong, Eboue, McGregor
AM - Rogic, NEW
RLAM - Sinclair, Forrest, Roberts, Onyekuru
ST - Dembele, Griffiths

Obviously come the summer we will need to bring another few players in to replace Izaguirre, Toure, Roberts (unless they sign new deals, or we some how manage to keep Roberts) and another Striker.



1.) 27 Jan 2017 00:19:58
a young henrik and lubo lol.



20 Jul 2016 11:06:17
Jerry St Juste will be signing either today or tomorrow.
Third bid for Sinclair been knocked back so our attention will now turn to Bartosz Kapustka.

Will be delighted with these 2 young players.


1.) 20 Jul 2016 11:37:50
Would love it if true but will have to wait and see.



03 Jun 2016 10:47:58
Brendan Rodgers first 2 signings will be
Joe Gomez (Liverpool)
Sam Johnson (Djurgarden)

Also expect another CM and Forward these will be 2 big money signings.

Players Leaving
Allan (loan)

Squad (4-3-3 Formation)

GK - Gordon, Bailly, Fasan
RB - Lustig, Janko
LB - Tierney, Izaguirre
CB - Sviatchenko, Mulgrew, Simunovic, Gomez, O'Connell
CM - NEW, Brown, Johansen, Rogic, Armstrong, Henderson, Ajer
Forwards - Griffiths, NEW, Johnson, Roberts, Christie, Nesbitt.


1.) 03 Jun 2016 10:57:44
A good source?

2.) 03 Jun 2016 11:01:05
U should stick the lottery on tomorrow mate, with your ability to read the future u could be a rich man by tomorrow nite! Lol. i'd love to know where you come up with all that by the way! There's been a few mystic megs on here lately! Lol.

3.) 03 Jun 2016 11:27:48
The player in the Swedish league I'd go for is pawel cibiki can play wide right left and cf. and why no mgregor who was probably our best midfielder last season. I also think there is too much anticipation of the bhoy ajer if he isn't a world beater in his first few appearances the hype could turn on him.

4.) 03 Jun 2016 11:45:22
I think one of the papers has us battling Sevilla for Sam Johnson lol.

5.) 03 Jun 2016 13:17:56
The bulk of this squad have been poor in Europe in the past three seasons and even assuming the new manager can get a wee bit extra out of them, I still think we are three players short of the experience and quality we require.
It's encouraging that we are gradually off-loading fringe, flopand surplus players and I hope we can make a couple of decent signings through the spine of the team when the transfer window is open.

6.) 03 Jun 2016 17:05:54
Izzy is going to MLS.

7.) 03 Jun 2016 19:13:57
Kinghenrik your almost bang on except formation will be 3-4-3.

8.) 04 Jun 2016 09:53:59
Hope so dn30



12 Aug 2015 08:46:36
So this Mystery Striker.
I'm not saying it's going to be him but what about Michu from Swansea


1.) 12 Aug 2015 09:47:06
Great on his day but he's been injured for the best part of 2 seasons

2.) 12 Aug 2015 09:53:19
Been reading the papers mate? Seriously, it seems there is a bit of traction to this.Having said that I don't believe a word from the press.ED. over to you ,any sniff?

{Ed007's Note - It looks like somone has put 2 and 2 together and came up with this story. Michu's agent held talks with Sevilla over the weekend.}

£30m + McCarthy. Rodgers could do some damage with that sort of money without even dipping into his own budget/ champions league or potential VVD money.

That sort of money could pay for the likes of

Jean-Kevin Duverne
Paddy Roberts
Henry Onyekuru
Sardar Azmoun.

Ideally I would like to see the following come in

Filip Benkovic - Dinamo Zagreb (big, big fee tho)
Leander Dendoncker - Anderlect (big, big fee tho)
Henry Onyekuru - K. A. S. Eupen

Would be top class if we could pull off Vilhena and Delaney.
You would think these two would only happen if we make the Champions League.

Also heard that these two are being seriously considered, maybe if we don't make the Champions League.

Darko Brasanac - FK Partizan
Wilfred Ndidi - KRC Genk.
