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)



28 Jun 2015 17:33:40
Looks like Balde is signing for Metz to on a two year deal. Shame it never worked out. The clear out is gathering pace.


1.) 28 Jun 2015 18:52:07
Anybody heard a fee? Doesn't look like we'll be getting much in anyway but am just wondering.

2.) 28 Jun 2015 19:03:59
I think his contract was terminated.

{Ed007's Note - 'Mutually' terminated = paid off and hunted.}

3.) 28 Jun 2015 20:32:42
I just read saying McGeough is a possibility when he's just extended his contract? Any news on Fridjonsson Ed? And anyone in for Boerrigter?

{Ed007's Note - Fridjonsson will be going out on loan, probably back to Brondby, or permanently, nothing's been decided but he won't be here next season. I've not heard of any interest in Boerrigter, I think that unless he is freed he'll need to prove his fitness before anyone would consider signing him.}

4.) 29 Jun 2015 00:37:54
2m wasted rather than paying a bit more for better quality! And that's the loss for just him we coulda bought somebody like a franchise signing with this all this wasted money! But it's constant cheapness and in the long run is bad business with our attempts to sign a striker!

5.) 29 Jun 2015 09:35:37
What you wanted to bring in McDonald's or KFC. I've always found the food court at the ground to be top notch. πŸ™ŠπŸ™Š

The question is have we improved the playing staff from last year. Other league winning teams always seem to improve and become stronger. We had a real chance after last seasons fantastic effort to bring quality additions to take us out of sight domestically and too make us competitive domestically. That hasn't happened and the last window was pretty underwhelming when it came to signings.


1.) 03 Feb 2018 17:18:02
Above should have read also make us competitive on the European stage. Need an edit facility πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.



25 Jan 2018 18:56:33
Nearly choked on my dinner. Steven Thompson sticking up for Celtic in the Scotland friendlies debacle. In fairness though I quite like him as a pundit.


1.) 26 Jan 2018 12:35:42
I like him too. He's honest and always gives praise where its due. He never holds back when giving n assessment of Rangers either. He and Stewart are an improvement on Wee Pat et al.



18 Jan 2018 14:18:42
The English transfer market has gone seriously mad. If Man City want Johnny Evans they've been quoted 23 mill!
Sanchez will sign a 4 year deal with Man Utd worth 400 thousand a week.
Chelsea are interested in signing Andy Carroll. WTF is going on. Bonkers if it all comes off.


1.) 18 Jan 2018 15:32:46
Imagine paying Β£400,000 a week to a guy who downed tools for his club over a year ago. Great player but another so called superstar whos attitude stinks.

2.) 18 Jan 2018 19:36:29
By all accounts Sanchez would rather have gone to Man City, it just shows what a mercenary he is that he not only does the dirty on them, but he then signs for their biggest rivals.
The game in England is bonkers. Arsenal get Β£35m for a player who has only 6 months left on his contract yet the press say they've got a bad deal, whereas Man United pay Β£35m + sky high wages for a player to play 15 games for them and yet that's seen as a good deal.
I wonder if sanity will ever return to that league.

3.) 18 Jan 2018 20:53:13
400,000 pounds a week, what's that?, 20 million pounds a year, Mourinho, or whoever sanctioned this is a fool.

4.) 18 Jan 2018 22:05:23
Think how many people across the world buy united tops though and then how many of them want to get shirts with his name on just to piss of arsenal supporters.



17 Jan 2018 17:42:30
Still not convinced that we will come out of this transfer window any stronger and if we are to believe reports signing a 32 year old Croatian defender doesn't cut it for me.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 17:47:55
Supposedly Compper is it for a month.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 17:49:53
He's an international that has played regularly in a CL team that made the next round this year.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 18:11:00
Apparently Celtic have rubbished reports of the boy Tosic.

4.) 17 Jan 2018 18:24:02
A few people have said there will be movement nearer the deadline day so just need to wait.

Musunda (sic) I would take, Tosic yes. Caulker if that’s still an option could provide some experience at the back and has played at good levels. Grujic from Liverpool seems like yet more lazy journalism, the MSM will eventuallly get the right player that Rodgers used to manage πŸ™„

Taking players from the top 6-10 teams in England who are not getting a look in served us well with Sutton and the likes.

{Ed001's Note - Grujic has joined Cardiff City for the rest of the season.}



11 Jan 2018 17:35:39
Why do sites link us to players that we have no chance of signing. The latest one I've seen is Mawson from Swansea quoting 25 million to buy him. Unbelievable.

I'm still confident we will get through but our defence is shocking and Gordon needs to be punted 😣.

Better second half. Griffiths coming on made the difference. Gives the midfield a better target it hit. Thought Ajer improved especially bringing the ball forward. Quicker ball from back to front instead of tippy tappy possession play.

I was comparing our build up play to that of the Man City game. Both teams like to build up from the back but in our case we seem to make that one extra pass that seems to slow down our forward momentum.
