Ed any news on any one coming in before the deadline today?


{Ed007's Note - I've not heard of anyone mate. Roberts agent is meeting Man City officials today to discuss his future.}

1.) 07 Aug 2017 12:36:18
Still have a wild card though eh ed?

{Ed007's Note - Yeah, Kev.}

2.) 07 Aug 2017 12:48:23
It's looking more and more like a late transfer push once qualifiers are settled. I think we are more than capable of negotiating the Astana tie with the squad we've got, especially if we put a few goals past them at CP, but we still need some quality reinforcements if we get to the groups.

3.) 07 Aug 2017 16:51:45

We seem to be writing Astana off a bit. Yes we beat them last time but needed 2 penalties at home. This is going to be tough for us.

4.) 07 Aug 2017 22:01:08
There are no easy matches for any Scottish teams at this time of the season, because of lack of competitive games, I don't know how far Astana are into the season, but why is a team in Asia playing in the CL anyway, I know Australia are in the Eurovision, and Israeli teams should be playing in the Africa cup instead of the Cl,



19 Jul 2017 18:17:40
According to the daily Ranker PL is going to step down from the SPFL Board and going for election for the SFA board instead If so what will that be for Celtic point of view?




16 Jun 2017 13:50:50
There is a report that Celtic have signed 2 players but it doesn't say if it's renewed contracts or new players but it won't be released until BR comes back from his holiday.


1.) 16 Jun 2017 14:02:43
Says its 3 on page i read.

2.) 16 Jun 2017 14:56:28
Do they speak Brazilian?

3.) 16 Jun 2017 15:09:39
Read three tae.

4.) 16 Jun 2017 15:36:45
On this note though I heard we'd made an offer for that Jean kevin Duverne, no got a clue if it's true but I'm sure we had been scouting him earlier in the season. To be honest Celtic are amazing at keeping signings on the downlow unlike the prison across the way.

5.) 16 Jun 2017 15:46:21
The one I looked at says it excludes Hayes.

6.) 16 Jun 2017 15:54:18
What was this on? I seen some people throwing some big names around but they seem a bit far fetched. Bojan, Januzaj even Ibra. Silly season. Even though Bojan could be possible. Hopefully the report is right tony 👍.



31 Aug 2016 15:09:45
Jozo passes Both parts of medical clubs still in talks about the fee.




04 Mar 2016 14:18:53
Celtic supposedly sounding out David Moyes for the summer as RD is on a year rolling contract.


1.) 04 Mar 2016 21:07:23
Read a few times today that he's on a rolling contract is it definite? I know Lennon was, hopefully he is!

2.) 04 Mar 2016 22:22:15
He is on a rolling contract, for a year, so it doesn't matter if we were to sack him tomorrow or in July - he still gets 12 months salary! Every day is the start of a new 1 year rolling contract! It suits the club better in that if he is sacked they aren't liable for say 3/ 4 years! If the manager gives his notice he has to stay for 1 year! Or the club he's going to has to pay the years salary to Celtic if they agree to let him go early!

3.) 05 Mar 2016 11:18:02
Not a chance of Moyes taking the job especially with the budget he'd get!

4.) 05 Mar 2016 11:36:51
Why don't you tell us your thoughts Des - you don't agree with anyone else! You said I have all the answers, well I don't but I've got an opinion, what's yours? Are you enjoying the way we're playing? Give us a bit of your insight - I love fans having different opinions to me, or in general, as long as they back it up though!

5.) 05 Mar 2016 11:51:43
Well I'd never call for a managers head when the team are top of the league and with a home draw in the cup quarters finals maybe that's what sets me aside from some. What sort of message would it send to a prospective new manager when his predecessor is sacked when at the top? Oh and Delphic if your waiting on Moyes taking the job you're in for a very long wait. He would only take job it if was a very very very last resort.

6.) 05 Mar 2016 14:02:17
I'm not waiting for Moyes - you said I knew everything, well I gave 10 names last week and he wasn't on the list, so get it right!

7.) 05 Mar 2016 15:02:17
So let's hear the 10 names. Most I suspect are out of a job at the moment so their bound to be big names!

8.) 05 Mar 2016 18:52:09
Prandelli, Bielsa, Rudi Garcia, Hitzfield, Seedorf, Mazzarri, Favre, Yakin were the 8 I said were out a job. Hiddink and Marcus Weinzeirl will be available in June! I know most would say no, but you never know! My point was there are good managers available! There's also plenty other managers that aren't seen as glamorous, - Southampton went for Pochettino who had been sacked by Espanyol. Watford took a chance on Flores, and Ranieri was begging clubs in England for a job. Watford and Leeds both blanked him even though they have Italian owners! I think we need someone with experience, at least someone who has done it in a big league where there is pressure! There was no pressure on Ronny at Stromgodset. Celtic is another world, because you do something at a small club doesn't mean you can just replicate it across the board! I don't like saying it but Warburton has done a better job in 6 months than Ronny has done with an extra year!

9.) 05 Mar 2016 19:00:21
If we didn't spend any money in the summer but brought in a top manager on a top salary I'd be happy! It's not just about us being top of the league, it's the product we're watching, the progress we've made this season, and most disturbing for me is we have had 2 players who have done themselves justice! The West Brom fans aren't happy at staying up, they are raging at the football Pulis has them playing! It's not black and white! Well Ronny says these very words! If you're happy though it's cool, but don't be taking hissy fits because I'm not and don't agree with you!

10.) 05 Mar 2016 21:56:53
If we had pushed the boat out we could have got Bilic a few years ago, he said he was leaving Croatia and spoke about Celtic, he ended up at Besiktas months later. The manager is the most important person at the club by far, so if you have to pay extra and save money somewhere else it's worth it.

11.) 05 Mar 2016 23:52:06
Said it before: if we were (genuinely) looking, I'd like us to go all out to get Yakin but even if we got him I think we'd find a lot of the same issues -- both in the boardroom and the stands -- would still be there.

12.) 06 Mar 2016 14:34:08
Hitzfield Hiddink pmsl. As for the rest I take it most are out of a job at the moment. Speaks volumes.

13.) 06 Mar 2016 16:56:21
Whilst I agree that most are pie in the sky, being out of a job doesn't mean anything. Guardiola was out of a job when he went to Bayern. Ranieri was out of a job when he went to Leicester. Klopp was out of a job when he went to Liverpool. And so on.

14.) 06 Mar 2016 18:15:56
I only remember you posting 3 times Des and you just hate everything else! I said to you the last time, offer up something! You don't seem to know too much, - those other managers that are out of work have good pedigrees, more importantly good experience in big leagues at big clubs! Circumstances dictate why certain managers are out of work, it's about timing. We could get a manager now that we might never normally get in a lifetime because of his situation! You would never get out of bed in the morning listening to your sort. Hiddink had agreed to come to us before, my point was he might prefer it to retirement when he leaves Chelsea. Hitzfield has been out of work since he left the Switzerland job a while ago - how do you know he wouldn't take it. What would you prefer - Forrest and Mulgrew getting a new contract or getting a top manager? I've kept it simple for you! And by the way I'd have liked nothing better that Ronny to be doing better, or even agreeing to stay under a Bielsa or another old wise head but I don't think he'd accept that! You tell me - if we played Molde again tomorrow in a qualifier, (they are only a few months away) would you be confident, I'd be less confident!

SG Hasn't taken long to start the blame game was never a foul for our goal but SG sees it with the Blue glasses on and blinkers on for the McGregor kick next he will be coming out with they were the better team. Just can't give credit to the FAR SUPERIOR TEAM.




31 Aug 2018 21:02:26
As much as I would have loved Mousa to have stayed I am pleased Celtic done the right thing for the player and the club If we were seen as a club to stop players dreams we would not attract ambitious players And I wish him all the best in his New club once a TIM always a TIM.


1.) 31 Aug 2018 21:31:39
Unless a suitable replacement comes in, within the next 2 hours its 100% not in the best interest of the club. Id rather take a slightly lower deal in jan and promise MD he can go then, with our strikers injury record i can see us having spells of the season where either christie or sinclair will have to be our striker which just isn't good enough.

2.) 31 Aug 2018 21:28:30
Agree Tony, wish they might have seen something so far fetched as a bid for the Moose and had a fella amend lined up . Shambolic window . Does the board want a strong ' Old firm ' ( I know they died )

3.) 31 Aug 2018 21:51:21
I don’t see how Celtic have done the right thing here. Rodgers said himself “ no player has ever been given a time they can leave” so what’s dembele’s tweets all about then? I don’t care what anyone says, dembele signed the 4 year deal, respect the contract, respect the club, respect the fans. taking his moods to social media to force a move is pathetic.

4.) 31 Aug 2018 21:58:25
Tony I couldn't disagree more. I am sick to the back teeth of signing young players who despite what the coaching staff do for them, show not the slightest interest in playing for our club as soon as the pound signs appear in front of them.
Instead of having the slightest bit of gratitude for helping them in their careers, these players would have you believe that they were being kept in some kind of slavery.
I think we have to try and move on from being a club who develop players for everyone else. If we invested properly in the squad we should be able to have players who have their best years here rather than just a training ground where other clubs to pick their talent from.
I can never understand why there is such a lack of ambition from the people at the top of our club, they continually fail to strengthen from a position of strength. These policies have seen us fail to qualify for the Champions league in 3 of the last 5 seasons, in any other business that would be seen as failure and the people at the top held to account.
I will always support my club, but the people running it are taking us for fools. They are more interested in their bonuses than growing us as a club. They are a disgrace.

5.) 31 Aug 2018 22:20:12
If he went for £20 million, we have paid out about £3.5 million in transfer fee and wages. £16.5 million profit.
It was definitely the right thing to do and Boyata's bid from Fulham should have been accepted as well.

6.) 31 Aug 2018 22:44:00
Gerry, it's simple, it's run as a business to make profit . As few a risks as possible ( big money signings ) and we've been out spent by our neighbours for 3rd time in a row . Imagine we did spend a little more than them every time with a rear made player for the first team and a very promising youngster rather than punts on spl pish.

7.) 31 Aug 2018 23:04:45
Birminghambhoy I think it was more the negative damage that B R was afraid M D would bring to the squad . None of us know exactly what image M D was demonstrating and how troublesome he could become . We have to trust B R made the right call.



31 Aug 2018 13:21:04
I am with Dembele With this WHAT OTHER CLUB would let there star player talk to another club let him agree a fee with that club then say No you are not going anywhere we haven't agreed a fee with the club you are talking to and its to late in the window to get another player in of quality? I JUST can't UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH US JUST NOW 1 You would think we would have agreed a fee before letting any one talk to another club 2 You would think a replacement was in position BEFORE YOU LET YOUR PLAYER TALK TO ANOTHER CLUB. really bad management again Celtic.


1.) 31 Aug 2018 13:43:52
That what happened aye?

2.) 31 Aug 2018 14:01:43
Just sounds like Lyon tried to low-ball us on the fee. Perhaps there was an implied evaluation that they failed to hit in their (first) bid. Dembele is not an 18M player and if they want him they'll just have to stump up a plausible amount of cash.



24 Aug 2018 17:49:45
If we don't bring in ANY new players from now until the window closes does any one think we will win the League as comfortable as the last few years Or even win the League?


1.) 24 Aug 2018 18:09:47
I am confident we will win the league. We'll gain momentum going forward. We do need a CB. And Boyata gone. A poor start is being over examined especially by the rangers favouring media.

2.) 24 Aug 2018 18:15:03
The points gap closed significantly, last term and we had apparently a stronger squad - if you count Armstrong and Roberts although they both missed many games with injury.
Currently we have several players that seem either surplus to requirements or not good enough to be trusted with a run in the side and a few are carrying injuries, so I would say we need at least a couple of additions and if it's true we won't get anyone in before 31/ 08, then we will be first in the queue in the January sales - hopefully still in contention on all fronts?

3.) 24 Aug 2018 18:18:52
First question. It looks highly unlikely the tin will be found in time. Second question. I still think we can if we step up to the plate. Rangers are overhyped. They are much better than last year, but if our squad can’t be that load of rubbish then we have been deluding ourselves for a couple of years.

It amazes me, re the defence, that there doesn’t seem to be one player in the Academy 19+,
that is better than the players we have. If that’s true, then let all of them go on Monday.

4.) 24 Aug 2018 18:42:43
I haven't seen any of the Servco games at all this year can't argue that they have improved by what people say (no pun) but I think we have taken a step back from the standard we had last season just hope even with the step back we still have enough to get through this year but still hoping for new quality before the end of the window can't see any other team coming close.

5.) 24 Aug 2018 18:43:33
Over the full season double figures.

6.) 24 Aug 2018 19:41:43
Last year despite beating Aberdeen and Rangers the points gap wasn’t great

This year even if we still beat them both if they both are more consistent then that gap will fall.

Celtic - have certainly taken a few steps back
Aberdeen - looked really poor against 10 men and even at Dundee
Rangers as much as it pains me are miles better than last year and on a good run so potentially can reduce the points gap if we don’t get our fingers out from top to bottom.

7.) 24 Aug 2018 20:29:54
We will struggle as things stand at the moment as we seem to have fallen into bad habits of the 2nd half of last season. I'm sure once the French connection is back up front and we can shuffle between the new set up planned during pre season we will start hammering teams again. Certainly need a lift with new signings. CB I'd say Boyata, Bitton and Compper out and buy someone decent that isn't the cheap option and get JT in to bring on Ajer and Hendry. I wouldn't mind us selling Jozo either he's a liability and too injury prone. Hopefully we can spend some cash and get in a box to box midfielder and decide which RB to keep and who needs replacing too. RW a loan would suffice for now to keep Forrest on his toes.

8.) 24 Aug 2018 20:35:08
Everyone needs to stop panicking and settle down with "the points gap"
Of course it was closer because the year before we didn't lose a game!
Maybe a lot of fans have been spoilt because of the invincible season.
I watched the orcs last night and they are still rubbish.

9.) 25 Aug 2018 00:31:54
Tony2, I don't think we will win the league unless we bring in 3 quality players. Do I think we will bring in any quality player? The answer is no.



14 Aug 2018 17:40:46
K. O At 7pm tonight encase any one thinks it's later.

Do you think its All Lawwells fault for not bringing in New players? I am not entirely sure But who ever fault it was something new has got to be in place for January it was so clear that we needed new players in And that dross that we have seen from the start of the season is far from good enough it was clear we needed a right back a CB and an attacking midfielder and it's clear that atleast 2 players in that team today would struggle to get into the bench for Falkirk and should not be anywhere near our team.

I am not bothered about the amount of money the players cost But we were FAR short at the Summer window it was SO clear that we needed new players in some positions that for what ever reason did not happen And l just hope we have learned from that really bad mistake and sort it out now.

January is not an ideal time to bring in new players or so the (experts) say on Sky spurts so I think we will only manage one new player and perhaps an other loan player.

Both are different sort of players and for different games we need both not a good idea IMO to get rid of one we need both of them.

I hope you are wrong about only having Hendry if that is the case we should look at our youth team as Hendry is worse than useless.
