Surely not the Defoe and Caroll rumours again. Can these people not make up new material 😡😡.


1.) 23 Dec 2018 12:01:18
Eh? has mikey Carrol won the lotto again?

2.) 23 Dec 2018 12:02:24
I said a few days ago I'd take Carroll. He's a big, route 1 type of striker which we don't have atm. I wouldn't be willing to pay too much of his wages right enough.

3.) 23 Dec 2018 13:11:18

Celtic don't play route 1 football. Brendan is actually trying to play football by keeping the ball and fast tempo passing.

Think route 1 football is finished in modern football.

4.) 23 Dec 2018 14:15:34
I didn't say we do, or should, play route 1 football. What I said is that he is the type of striker who can play route 1 - meaning big and physical - which we don't have right now. Since Dembele left we don't have anybody who can bully defenders and put themselves about.

5.) 23 Dec 2018 14:21:12
He's never off the treatment table and it would be a loan his wages are a prob also.

6.) 23 Dec 2018 15:02:29
Carroll is an injury prone dud. Defoe is well past it.

7.) 23 Dec 2018 15:31:40
Defoe would score goals but I'd prefer someone younger but big Andy is never fit.
Guys like him McCarthy and wilshere are as well retiring.

8.) 23 Dec 2018 15:40:12
I wouldn't touch either of them to be honest, as I've said before if we can make it happen I'd go for the lad Pavkov from Red Star Belgrade or maybe Origi on Loan from Liverpool.

9.) 23 Dec 2018 16:03:17
Uninspiring if true. Both would score goals if fit but would rather we invested a good chunk of the Dembele money buying someone who will make a profit down the line. Rather we loan one and buy one striker as the loan comes 2 an end we'll hopefully have Griffiths back. So spend the money on a target man and loan a poacher would be ideal.

10.) 24 Dec 2018 20:38:09
Wasn’t Carroll the first player that Brendan got rid of at Liverpool?!

{Ed007's Note - He wasn't the first but he wasn't far off it.}



10 Jul 2016 00:18:19
Bradley Dack from Gillingham is that someone who we are going for. Never really heard of him.


1.) 10 Jul 2016 10:35:47
No another no 10 got enough of them.

2.) 10 Jul 2016 11:51:45
I may be wrong, but can he not play on the wing as well?

3.) 10 Jul 2016 12:22:49
Doesn't matter where he plays this would be an awful signing.

4.) 10 Jul 2016 15:16:59
Fair enough Jim I know nothing about him at all, but a lot of folk have been waxing lyrical saying he's dynamite and is the next best thing since Deli Alli.

5.) 10 Jul 2016 17:34:00
Can't say I know a great deal either really bud apart from him popping up on the football league show and goals on sunday etc. He can't be better than what we've got. McGregor had a season just as good as his down in League One. We've all being banging on about quantity over quality, making signings that will take us to CL level and we're supposedly chasing players from Gillingham. I refuse to believe it.



07 Jul 2015 16:25:37
Rumours spreading that we have won the race to sign Martin Odegaard on loan from Real Madrid. If this does transpire I can only think it will be good for Celtic. My reasoning is that if he is as good as Real think he is and we give him game time where he returns to Real a mature and improved player then the posibilities of tapping in to Real for other players in the future improves. Let's hope we do get him and he is successful with us.


1.) 07 Jul 2015 17:38:05
I have no doubts he'll bring some excitement for us fans. The kid has tekkers. But I just feel somewhat underwhelmed given he's one of the hottest talents on the planet. Because we'll not be keeping him. And unless he plays a big part in carrying us into and through the CL groups do Celtic really benefit? Can only pray he falls in love with the place, gets himself a Scottish lass or something and runs down his contract with Los Blancos and signs for us! But aye, even if just for a season it'll be great to watch a player of his skill and guile in the Hoops.

Seems strange that the report says despite, as thought, Real wanted to loan him in Spain, that it is the player who has convinced Real to loan him to Celtic.

2.) 07 Jul 2015 18:25:21
Obviously there is a lot of hype around him but I can't say I've seen a lot of him, but if he comes who would drop out of the side . I'm presuming he's a no 10, so that would mean less game time for commons , gms or Armstrong dependant on Ronnies formation . As he won't be our player , what will we gain out of the deal unless he is a top drawer player . Obvious Ronny knows him well and has been after him at various times but he must offer something completely different from what we already have .

3.) 07 Jul 2015 21:50:17
Was reading Jack Harper might not be renewing his contract with Real, I don't know anything about the lad does anyone know if he's a player worth trying to get in.

4.) 07 Jul 2015 21:59:56
Martin Odegaard: this guy has a clause in his contract to say he must play & train in the first team @ Real.
He looks a real talent, however, who do we drop to fit him in?
will there be a min number of games we must play him?

5.) 08 Jul 2015 07:42:00
Stan, can't say i've seen him bud but have read rave reviews about him and admit it has crossed my mind that one day he might be worth a look! No idea if he's a 'tic fan fan and it may be a bit naive but if there's a young player who has spent time wih Real, and could be available for just compenation etc. then he's at least worth a trial in my opinion.

6.) 08 Jul 2015 07:57:47
I agree cprs if he comes one of our players won't get a chance can't stop thinking it won't be good for moral



05 Jul 2015 20:12:59
Apparently we have had a million pound bid rejected for McGeady. Disappointed if this is true. He has had his time with Celtic and both he and the club have moved on. No thanks.


1.) 06 Jul 2015 12:25:31
Absolute rubbish why are people posting this. The last thing we need is a winger.We just bought Mckay Steven as far as my opinion on Mcgeady wouldn't even give Greek Euros for a winger that can't cross his legs nevermind a ball

2.) 06 Jul 2015 18:07:16
Have to say I was hoping for an attacking wide man, ideally a goalscoring wing forward. I think Johansen, Commons, Armstrong and Rogic are more suited down the middle. That only really leaves us with GMS, Forrest and Stokes. The latter two I think we need to be looking for better and Boerrigter looks done. I'm all up for a playing style where the front four might not have strict positions but fill in the gaps (just search clairefontaine in the page search I remember Ed giving a good lecture). Perhaps that's what we'll go but I would still like to see a more naturally suited wide man.



30 Jun 2015 09:10:03
Apparently we have had 900k bid for Nadir Ciftci knocked back by Dundee Utd. I don't know if this is the sort of player we need. There is no doubt he can score goals but his temperament and the baggage he brings does not sit well with me.


1.) 30 Jun 2015 10:10:21
I'm not sure either mate.

The players i'd like us to go for and who we do go for are two different things these days. Granted we've found some rough diamonds.

That said and only commenting on the player in our sights, I quite rate him. He's the striker in Scotland i'd prefer the most. If that counts for anything. He's the perfect 'type' to play that lone striker. Can run and shield the ball and really work a defense by himself. Got that bit muscle and poacher instinct in the box too. Plus I think the three behind him would really benefit from his game play.

Costing us by doing something stupid is a big worry, and whether he can make the step up to CL level remains to be seen. So those two factors just put a bit doubt in my mind.

2.) 30 Jun 2015 10:57:51
There is no doubt Ciftci can play a bit , but his temperament and attitude are not what I want to see in a Celtic player , he would do well enough in domestic football , but I'm not so sure at European level , I'd much prefer us to persue the bid for Jelle Vossen , we are fast becoming Dundee Utd lol .

3.) 30 Jun 2015 11:12:22
I'm not over the moon about this either! I was really hoping for us to sign someone better!

4.) 30 Jun 2015 11:40:49
Thought we were only gone sign players that only make us better??

5.) 30 Jun 2015 15:12:58
No what big Pete meant was the cheap option and if he makes us better that's a bonus. I just wish we would go and sign a proven striker.

6.) 30 Jun 2015 17:36:40
Would not like this boys from Dundee utd but mabye it's better the devil you know considering the shocking strikers we have bought in over the last few seasons, is there not a young striker in the development squad wee could bleed through behind griffiths

7.) 30 Jun 2015 18:53:59
Guys give the guy a break, we have had the likes of Pukki/Balde etc and all the talk when we signed them was they look good. If Cifti was coming from Europe we would all be on youtube saying this guy got something about him. because he from Utd its this guy not good enough. Well LG has stepped up and so could Cifti. I also think Scepovic could step up this season also if given the chance.There has been many many old frim players down the years who struggled their 1st year.

8.) 30 Jun 2015 20:24:30
Anyone else getting a sense of deja vu,the way some people are talking about Cifci is very similar to the way they were talking about Griffiths last year.

9.) 30 Jun 2015 20:40:44
I agree with you lawman
Looks like we are trying to go for the safe option but in RD I trust

10.) 30 Jun 2015 22:26:17
Hi Rayman, A usually agree with you more often than not but not this time Bud!

Cifti is up in three weeks for this biting charge and although a don't have a crystal ball he is going to get a 5 or a 6 game ban IMO A mean BITING FFS! a don't know about you but as was repulsed at the Suarez incident and we don't need the grief!

So disappointed in this even approach in so many fronts if am honest must have a better option than him surely even WITH how poor our record up front is :-(

11.) 01 Jul 2015 00:20:44
@Jamie I not saying he anything special but we tend to go on about players because they from Europe. I know he Turkish but he getting it because he playing here. Mate the biting thing I have never seen simply because I had no interest in it. But surely he innocent to proven otherwise. Incidently I would take Suarez in a minute lol.

12.) 01 Jul 2015 14:56:40
Hi Rayman mate, He did it mate (bite) the Dundee's players Mrs was mad about it in the papers because he gave him a better "lovebite" (pmsl) than she ever could (y)

If there was ever a perfect example of Scottish referees being inept or favouring a certain team then the two decisions against Kilmarnock tonight are prime examples.


1.) 20 Feb 2019 20:39:25
Oh they have made absolutely certain there was no chance of Kilmarnock going through - they couldn't have that!

2.) 20 Feb 2019 20:50:15
Just saw what killie keeper got sent off for my god it's embarrassing for the ref a disgraceful decision.

3.) 20 Feb 2019 20:50:45
Brother Muir doing his bit to release the pressure.
I noticed we have Clancy on sunday.
Surprised since he was the ref when we last played Motherwell.
When he prevented Celtic going 2-0 up due to a phantom foul, which in the end up cost us.
We also have the privilege of a conservative linesman in the off off off mr ross.

4.) 20 Feb 2019 21:07:17
I haven’t seen either of the contentious incidents but when you’ve got Gordon Smith saying Kilmarnock should have had a penalty and Neil McCann saying it wasn’t a red card, it doesn’t do much to improve your paranoia.

5.) 20 Feb 2019 21:09:47
Saw the wee Tory knob on the telly the night.

6.) 20 Feb 2019 21:18:23
For the first time in 4 months Collum is pencilled in to help officiate a sevco match.
He will be 4th official in the home midweek fixture. Good way to ease him back in.
Im glad cos it keeps him away from us.
Celtic away to Aberdeen was his 11th league game of the season.
In his previous 10 he never awarded a single penalty, then he gives two against us in the one game. If it wasnt for french Eddie it would have cost us.

7.) 21 Feb 2019 08:30:24
Kilmarnock should have had a penalty as well when Worrall fouled in the box near the start of the match.

8.) 21 Feb 2019 10:31:07
Just seen both incidents and it's cheating, bias, etc, but no words seem strong enough for the level of it. My partner just asked me why as Celtic fans we even bother watching the games or getting involved when it's clear for all to see, nothing is done about and it's so extreme. I told her it's because it makes beating them even sweeter. But honest to God, those decisions last night are disgusting. A definite penalty and NEVER in a million years a sending off. In fact their player should be banned for cheating. Needless to say it won't happen. I'm almost surprised he didn't give them a penalty for that - Dallas bloody well did!

Pyrotechnics. naughty. 😂.



30 Aug 2018 21:51:21
I know it was only Sudova but there was a lot of pressure on them tonight and they passed with flying colours. Credit where credit due especially to young Johnston who I thought was terrific. Christie also brought a lot of energy when he came on. Well done all and onto Sunday.




11 Aug 2018 14:51:32
There's not much to be said about that performance today but I think it does show us and hopefully the deal makers at Celtic who is up for the job and who is surplus to requirements. The list is long unfortunately in my opinion.


1.) 11 Aug 2018 15:10:25
Couldn’t agree more lawman. We have too many fringe players that just aren’t up to the task, Hayes ( granted had a big injury last season but when plays just doesn’t look like the guy that played for Aberdeen. Allan, why he’s still at Celtic god only knows, Christie comes back from Aberdeen and struggles to make the squad, kouassi been here 2 years now and shows nothing when he does get a cameo appearance, the list of dead wood we have is ridiculous and it’s never more evident than when we make 4/ 5 changes in the line up and that could be against any opposition, and as for comper, does anyone know what this guy looks like or even if he’s still in the country? What a waste of money that guys been.

2.) 11 Aug 2018 15:25:13
Hayes was great at a club with no expectations almost forgot we had him.

3.) 11 Aug 2018 16:34:50
Maybe Allan would have made a better contribution today, than some of those playing, he keeps getting condemned on here, but hasn't had a chance to show what he can do in a competitive game, so far this season, after playing well for Hibs last year.



25 Jul 2018 21:26:36
If Celtic can keep this level of football throughout the season I can't see anyone touching us. Treble treble anyone 😎😎.

Why would we need a medical for a loan deal. I could understand if it was for someone we never had before but if he still has two legs and a head why bother 😉.

I'm feeling very positive about this transfer window but as with AOB the squad is becoming a bit bloated and we need to get rid of the deadwood.

You'll probably find that the reason he's gone there will be both clubs are owned by the same group. It will be for a shuffling of finances probs to satisfy financial fair play in Man City's respect. Nothing to do with player development.
