With Brendan Rodgers and Peter Lawwell down in London yeaterday.
Wonder who we could have been down talking to?
Few players being mentioned are.

Michel Vorm
Martin Kelly
Steven Caulker
Liam Moore
Charly Musonda

I would be happy with any of these.

Also Lewis Morgan to sign in the next few days.
300k + add-ons then loaned back to St Mirren.


1.) 20 Dec 2017 10:45:48
I'd rather we went for a younger and more active keeper than Vorm tbh. Caulker could be an excellent signing I think.

2.) 20 Dec 2017 10:59:54
Guys rumour is Brendan and Lawwell were talking to Chelsea over an 18month loan deal for Musonda.

3.) 20 Dec 2017 11:24:15
Seen on sky he's injured as well Tim.

{Ed007's Note - He's had injury problems for most of the season.}

4.) 20 Dec 2017 11:33:15
Tim Krul playing second fiddle at Brighton at the moment would be a great signing.
Also the boy Danny Ward at Liverpool could be a good shout for a younger goalkeeper.

5.) 20 Dec 2017 15:21:26
I like Ward at Liverpool tae KH.



19 Nov 2017 21:10:05
Few signings I've heard to expect to happen in January.

Filip Benkovic - £7m
Miquel Nelom - Feyenoord - Pre-Contract
John McGinn - Hibs - £4.5m + Liam Henderson
Lewis Morgan - St Mirren - Pre- Contract
Louis Moult - Motherwell - Pre-Contract

Minimum fees may be offered for the pre-contract guys before the end if the window same as GMS situation.


1.) 19 Nov 2017 22:22:02
Dont see celtic spending that kind of money although I urge you Mr lawwell prove me wrong, one thing I would say about you valuation of benkovic is less than half the 20million being banded about.

2.) 20 Nov 2017 04:40:26
Never seen Benkovic but I doubt we've got a chance with some of the clubs looking at him. The rest can stay where they are.

3.) 20 Nov 2017 23:54:27
More outs than in this Jan some youth bhoys out on Loan Ajer Henderson needs to move on he's no getting games he's a good player who now needs to be a regular to flourish. Kouassi now needs to show his worth as well. Benyu out on Loan a CH in is a must for me anything else can wait till next year. Let's face it we only brought one in last Jan window that's what I think will happen again. As I look at it here's two teams we can put out which could still win SPFL . Gordon Lustig Boyata jozo Tierney Brown Armstrong Roberts Rogic Sinclair Dembele. De Vries Ralston Bitton Erick Hayes Ntcham kouassi Forrest MC Gregor Millar Griff. We don't need to stock pile players we may need one or two quality players to walk into first team to help in CL what do u think ED.



05 Oct 2017 07:34:28
I have been told that Lewis Morgan will be signing a pre-contract in January from St Mirren.


1.) 05 Oct 2017 10:50:50
Doubt it, he supports The Rangers.

2.) 05 Oct 2017 11:03:10
I would be delighted if he signed, he has great potential.

He supports Rangers, as does his family, but as a young player looking to further his career Celtic would be a far better option for him.

3.) 05 Oct 2017 15:32:15
What has who he supports got to do with anything?
How often do we hear that rubbish and then sign the player.
Some of the biggest figures and best player our club has had supported rangers before they signed for us.
As the great man
I can't claim Celtic were my first love but they will be my last.

4.) 05 Oct 2017 15:55:06
Look at it this way Kev, if you were offered a contract with Rangers would you take it? I know I wouldn't.

5.) 05 Oct 2017 16:03:23
Are you forgetting Jock was a rangers supporter? Look how well that came out for us eh.

6.) 05 Oct 2017 16:16:32
Im not saying I wouldn't support him if he did join. I'm just saying that he supports our biggest rivals who are also rumoured to be interested in him. Therefor it is unlikely that he will join us.

7.) 05 Oct 2017 16:18:41
I am a bloody janitor mate. If any team was going to pay me to play professional football I'd take it.
Jock Stein
Kenny dalglish
Danny McGrain
Our captain Scott Brown and loads more have supported rangers and went on to play for Celtic
Many becoming legends.
At the end of the day football is their job and it's a short career.
Most footballers will go where they have the best chance of making money and winning trophies.

8.) 05 Oct 2017 16:28:03
Robdoc21 who was last player both Celtic and rangers made a bid for?

9.) 05 Oct 2017 16:35:21
And perhaps the greatest of all - Scott Allen lol.

10.) 05 Oct 2017 16:59:43
The argument isn't which club is the most attractive prospect right now as celtic win that hands down. I went through school with Lewis and know that he's a Rangers man and if he has the chance to go back to Rangers to play in the first team then he will.

11.) 05 Oct 2017 17:02:21
still time for the boy to learn to read and write
And wash
Give the guy a chance.

12.) 05 Oct 2017 17:31:29
I will give you a 10ner charity bet that if Celtic and rangers go for him he will sign for Celtic robdoc21.
Like I said before same nonsense we hear every time we go to sign a rangers supporter.
Scott Allen the perfect example.

13.) 05 Oct 2017 18:59:24
What school?

14.) 05 Oct 2017 18:48:24
you tell em kev when the mighty hoops come calling there's no way they would shun us for them. tho true story here i spent a years at celtic bhoys when younger when i was 13 was away playing for strathclyde select manager was rangers manager says to me why didint u sign for rangers? told my da this he says they came and asked but he told em where to go haha.

15.) 05 Oct 2017 20:21:04
Who is this Rangers team you are all talking about? That club died. Just like Third Lanark.

16.) 06 Oct 2017 08:14:24
I accept your bet Kev. @Viking tim gourock high school and clydeview academy when gourock high and greenock academy merged.

17.) 06 Oct 2017 16:39:01
Good stuff rob.

18.) 07 Oct 2017 07:05:49
The last 3 players both teams bid for Kev was Weiss, Lafferty and Loovens.

19.) 07 Oct 2017 07:06:38
And also Scott Allen.

20.) 07 Oct 2017 11:01:03

Ragers - good chance of third in the league and 1 game in Europe
financial instability, signing policy - older, foreign players, dressing room unrest, etc etc

Celtic - insert superlatives here.

"our biggest rivals" - are Aberdeen bidding too?

21.) 07 Oct 2017 11:32:21
Tommo was talking about Scott Allan the rangers supporter that choice to sign for us rather than rangers.

22.) 07 Oct 2017 12:50:28
tommy gemmell was a motherwell fan and ronnie simpson was a queens park, both men made this clear, read their books.

23.) 07 Oct 2017 19:01:07
pointless arguement tbf who cares who a player supports when they pull on the green and white thee one of us.

24.) 08 Oct 2017 01:02:06
i do, i want to know they'll die for the cause, to have our own in the team gives you that bit extra heart and dig, history proves that.

25.) 08 Oct 2017 20:35:20
That's nonsense jamesbhoy. If there was one player in our team that disproves that right now it's Scott Brown.

26.) 09 Oct 2017 16:05:36
who the headless chicken who couldn't trap a bag of cement?

27.) 09 Oct 2017 18:46:52
Can you imagine how good Danny mcgrain kenny dalgliesh and even wee lee Griffiths would have been for us if they had actually supported us.



09 Jul 2017 21:58:31
Rumours has it

Paddy Roberts will be on his way back £7m + £3m add-ons.

Jean-Kevin Duverne to be signed after Linfield games for around £5m.

Also two players to be signed from Chelsea Mario Pasalic and Charly Musonda for a combined fee of £8m.

Must admit if we pull off these signings what an exciting young squad we are going to have.

I would also think some players may be on the move hopefully more deadwoodbit part players.


{Ed007's Note - Just a wee update on Duverne, Lille have put in a second bid for him after the first was rejected. I don't know the figures involved.}

1.) 09 Jul 2017 22:14:58
As much as id love the above to happen. I can't see it. Its a potential outlay of 30mil including ntcham. Also. Signing a total of 6 midfielders? Hayes benyu ntcham pasalic musonda Robert's. Id gyess rogic and Armstrong both would be sold then.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 22:24:03
I want some of what you are smoking!

I think I would be happy with 1 or 2 of them but ALL of them, no danger. We are already fairly well covered in midfield and we are going to sign another 4?

3.) 09 Jul 2017 22:38:38
We can dream

Dont think we will get Pasalic or Musonda now but Duverne and Roberts plus Ntcham will be a brilliant window for us.

4.) 09 Jul 2017 22:46:10
No chance are we signing ntcham then 2 midfielders from Chelsea! We've enough in midfield as it is! Would love the paddy rumours to be true but! And as I've said before, we definitely need a new centre back. and that was even before boyata got injured!

5.) 09 Jul 2017 22:51:15
Duverne has ruled out moving this window has he not?

6.) 09 Jul 2017 22:54:31
I'd love Roberts but I think durvene is probably a necessity now with boyatta gubbed for a while, I bet Roberts will be a deadline day move.

7.) 10 Jul 2017 06:37:57
Not a chance, id be happy with roberts back permanent.

8.) 10 Jul 2017 09:50:51
King come on this isny fifa 17 there will b a couple of decent signings butnot to that extent.

9.) 10 Jul 2017 11:25:24
I never said we'll sign all of them just rumours going about, I would be happy with Roberts and Duverne.

10.) 10 Jul 2017 14:32:59
That's a fair whack of players. Who goes though?



03 Jul 2017 13:14:44
Ed. Have you heard anything about us after a guy called Gonzalo Escalante of Eibar?


{Ed007's Note - There's no interest from Celtic in Escalante.}

10 Jan 2018 18:33:20
Have you heard anything about us interested in a young Bulgarian CB called Bozhidar Chorbadzhiyski.
He's 22 and plays for CSKA Sofia?


{Ed007's Note - No but he would be a cracking signing. I think the price would scare us off.}

1.) 11 Jan 2018 09:20:54
He could be the longest chant ever? Give us a B - Give us an O.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 10:22:26
£83 just to get his name on your tap,

3.) 13 Jan 2018 16:45:37
If players from the Bulgarian league are out with our spending reach, what league is within our reach?

{Ed0333's Note - Macedonian? Syrian?



07 Jan 2018 11:27:24
So going with reports we are about to lose half our team this window😂.
We'll be loaded come the end of Janaury at this rate🤔

Dembele - £20m
Tierney -?
Sviatchenko - £2m
Simunovic - £8m
Griffiths - £7m
Armstrong - £10m.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 12:33:14
It's the Scottish media mate. pinch of salt and all that.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 13:34:53
PL will be booking a world cruise for him and his missus.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 14:06:46
We'll be lucky to get 4 for jozo.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 14:27:50
We would be lucky to get 4m reinvested if they all went!

5.) 08 Jan 2018 10:25:30
Augustus, in the past I would say your prediction was a cert. the difference this time, I hope, is that dugs in the street know we need to invest in better quality additions to secure CL qualification. That’s looking down the barrel of a loss of £40m a year.

If Rogers wants to stop seeing his team horses in the CL he needs to demand resources. The board cannot fail to support him. If they think we don’t need to they obviously don’t watch us.

I’m confident we will invest.



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.

Heard deal for John McGinn has been done and will be annouced shortly.
£3.5m + Henderson.

So think he'll be the one to replace Armstrong.

Tim Krul playing second fiddle at Brighton at the moment would be a great signing.
Also the boy Danny Ward at Liverpool could be a good shout for a younger goalkeeper.

The reaction on this to us signing a 32 year old defender is absolutely mental.
At least give the guy a chance before he's even kicked a ball .

And as for looking to the future we have plenty of players at an age where they could be with us for years to come so maybe an older head at the back is what we need right now and after Sundays performance I wouldn't say no to that.

Also heard that Crystal Palace and ex Liverpool defender Martin Kelly is top of Brendans list for the RB position. out of contract in the summer so wouldn't cost a great deal.

Azmoun only signed a one year extension to his contract with Ruban Kazan. he was only on loan at Rostov.
Rostov claimed they bought him but they never.


{Ed002's Note - Sardar Azmoun was subject to a very public dispute between Rubin Kazan and Rostov which ended in favour of Rostov last summer. Stoke had agreed a transfer with Rubin Kazan prior to the CAS proceedings but were aware that it would be very difficult to make a case for a work permit. Everton had also looked at the player two years ago but, like Stoke, knew the Work Permit situation would be a problem. Whilst playing for RK in 2014 it was suggested that Brendan Rodgers was keen on the player but I cannot confirm that. Rubin Kazan received a little over €2M in compensation at the ruling of CAS and have no recourse for appeal. Marseille have watched the player this season and but have other targets this summer, but they remain concerned that his best form comes in International sides who are lowly ranked. Antalyaspor, Leverkusen and Konyaspor have attended matches to watch Azmoun during this past season and Liverpool had representatives at the Atletico Madrid v Rostov game but the player made clear he did not want to move to Liverpool in January. There is sustained interest from Celtic and they might yet prove to be an option - else Lazio has discussed the player with Rostov.}
