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!

Neil Doncaster to meet with a delegation from the Celtic supporters Association tonight I really hope that they have a good solicitor with them and a recording of the interview both will have a good idea what both will say so I hope they have some curved ball questions to throw him off to me Doncaster is doing all he can to stop the back lash that is coming his way.




26 Jul 2017 12:00:47
I see SPFL have came out with a statement saying they can't legally punish Rangers No one I know says they want old Co punished or the tribute act what as I be leave is people want the tainted titles to be taken away Another sham and twisting of words from the SPFL things to keep them quiet its really scandalous It would just make some people wonder if the SPFL have something they want kept hidden if they did go ahead and in my opinion quite rightly take away the tainted titles.


{Ed007's Note - People are too focused on the title stripping when the point of attack should be the overall governance of the Scottish game - done independently - since the original Rangers admitted to the DOS (wee tax case) which the LNS weren't allowed to look at. From there an examination of the Rangers 2011 Euro application, what Rangers withheld and what the SFA/SPFL knew at the time and ignored. And an explanation of why TRIFC didn't take Rangers place in Europe in 2012. I'm actually surprised no TRIFC supporter wants to know that, unless they're afraid of the answer of course.
If that's done the rest will fall into place, this is very far from over, Tony and will run for a good while yet.}

1.) 26 Jul 2017 12:24:51
I hope justice will be done in this case and ALL the people that were and are involved in this scandal will be dealt with legally.

{Ed007's Note - There has to be justice done or the game in Scotland will never recover. This isn't about Celtic v TRIFC and don't let them make it that, this is about how the game in Scotland has been ran for years. The SFA and SPFL are just as guilty of breaking football rules as Rangers were, worse in fact because they were part of Rangers cheating for years.}



21 Jul 2017 08:27:12
I would like to congratulate Aberdeen for getting through to the next round good to see THE TOP TWO TEAMS in Scotland by FAR go through.


1.) 21 Jul 2017 14:21:39
How can anyone disagree with that statement? Oh yeah deluded don't do facts, just fantasy.

2.) 21 Jul 2017 14:36:25
It will be the visitors from the tribute act 😂😂.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 15:08:16
Nameless 3 explain your selection! My mind is open-ish and willing to entertain new thinking.? ;)

4.) 21 Jul 2017 16:58:37
Kwaj it's easy to understand their thinking-they dont! They can't not be the first, never mind the second or not even the third best team in Scotland. It's no fair. Even at 6-0 down on aggregate their cousins fae Mingfield were giving it 'We urr the People'. It's their God given right Kwaj. Rule Britannia and aw that. For feck sake Kwaj ye could be a bit more sensitive. This TIMS on top and sheep above them mullarkey isnae funny ye know. Or if your struggling on the understanding and sympathy front you could either try and develop your capacity for empathy or just roll about pishing yirsel laughing wae me! 😂👍☘️.



21 Jun 2017 16:06:10
As far as our CL draw goes I don't know why Linfield don't ask to play the home game at the crumble dome win, win as far as I can see Servco get to listen to the CL music and will be a lot safer for all and Linfield will get the money they look for and get to play at the crumble dome.


1.) 21 Jun 2017 17:24:39
SAFER at the crumbledome!? Lol.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 17:34:55
I get your point wyllie lol but yes I think for all concerned it would be can't see them asking or it happening but I do think it would be safer.

{Ed007's Note - If Linfield can't guarantee Celtic's officials and fans safety they should withdraw or be kicked out of the competition. Here's the Regs that cover it:

7.01 The clubs are responsible for the behaviour of their players, officials, members,
supporters and any person carrying out a function at a match on their behalf.

7.02 The home club (or the host association) is responsible for order and security
before, during and after the match. The home club (or the host association) may
be called to account for incidents of any kind and may be disciplined.

21.01 All matches are played according to the UEFA Match Calendar.
These dates are final and binding on all concerned, subject to the provisions
of Paragraph 22.01 to Paragraph 22.04. The following principles apply to this

a. UEFA Champions League matches are played on Tuesdays and Wednesdays,
with the exception of the final, which is played on a Saturday.

22.01 The venues, dates and kick-off times for matches in the three qualifying rounds are fixed by each home club and must be confirmed and communicated to the UEFA administration in writing by theirassociations by the deadline set by the UEFA administration. The UEFA administration may alter or confirm dates and kick-off times according to the principles set by the Club Competitions Committee.

22.02 The UEFA administration decides on match dates and fixture reversals on a case by case basis, according to the principles set by the Club Competitions
Committee. The UEFA administration reserves the right to impose a match date in
the event of clashes between matches in this competition and other UEFA club
competition matches.}

3.) 21 Jun 2017 18:54:59
There can be a lot of genuine reasons why a fixture might have to be moved, but moving a match so a lot of bigots in bowler hats and sashes can march around intimidating people shouldn't be one of them.
Linfield should be ordered to play the match on the original date, if they can't, then as ED says they should forfeit the match.

{Ed007's Note - Spot on, Gerry.}

4.) 21 Jun 2017 20:18:39
Well that's them FD lol.

{Ed007's Note - It's only a week ago that a 63-year-old Orange scumbag who had been previously convicted of gun offences was found guilty of driving his car into a group of people including a then 16-year-old girl - she was knocked down and then driven over shattering her pelvis and fracturing her ankle and collarbone - and 2 police officers during the July 12th "celebrations" two years ago. An act that should have been treated as a terrorist attack going by what's happened around the world.
Are Celtic and their supporters really expected to put their lives at risk by going over there? UEFA need to step in to this as soon as the tie is finalised if Linfield go through.}

5.) 21 Jun 2017 22:59:45
This man was released on bail prior to sentencing . No doubt to give him his big day out in July.

{Ed007's Note - I noticed that, Chris, that's a shocking decision considering what the judge said at the end about his sentencing and that the case was so harrowing she excused the jury from further jury service for life. Let's hope he's banged up for a long time very soon, the world will be a far better place with scumbags like that locked up.}

6.) 22 Jun 2017 23:47:10
There was a photo in the local press where he was seen marching with one of the negotiators currently at Downing St .

7.) 23 Jun 2017 11:23:19
Hit the nail on the head Gerry. Play on the 12th or go feckn paddle in the Boyne preferably without water wings! ☘️.

8.) 23 Jun 2017 11:24:35
The venues, dates and times are fixed by the home clubs, so does that not mean it's up to Linfield when and where they play their home leg?

9.) 23 Jun 2017 23:27:30
True but UEFA had designated 11th and 12th for the first leg .
However the 1690 men said NO .
I would have thought game should have been played in the Aviva on either of original dates.



13 Jun 2017 17:42:16
Although I like this time of year with the speculation about who is arriving and who is departing I did think we would have maybe had one player in or as near as damn it in
Ed have you heard of any one MAYBE arriving?


{Ed007's Note - I've got nothing new mate. I'm hoping a lot of phone calls are going on while people are on holiday and we'll get someone announced when Rodgers and Lawwell are back.}

1.) 13 Jun 2017 19:22:43
Still plenty of time tony mate. i'd rather we took our time and added quality. the only thing that worries me is going for Hayes! Just hope that's not the level of player all our targets are!

2.) 13 Jun 2017 20:49:53
Thanks Ed I agree Lh I just hope its people filling up the papers.

3.) 13 Jun 2017 21:15:20
Interesting words from Neil Warnock today, Says Aberdeen want 2 players from Celtic. 2 players plus £1.2m? Surely not. I would not even give them Mackay Steven and Ciftci with no cash for Hayes. I hope we pull the plug on this farce.

4.) 13 Jun 2017 21:05:11
im actually surprised the clearout hasn't started yet, ambrose aside who's contract was up anyway and was leaving.

5.) 13 Jun 2017 21:24:08
Im with you stan. Hayes would have to have to have plenty untapped potential to justify us using christie as a make weight never mind +1.2m i've never seen it.

6.) 13 Jun 2017 21:24:19
Commons and O'Connell have also left James.

7.) 13 Jun 2017 21:30:46
Aye Philiphop it doesn't add up. If i had to choose between Hayes and Christie next season it would be Christie. So for him to go to Aberdeen next season, and another player + supposedly £1.2m that's crazy.

8.) 13 Jun 2017 22:31:41
Its not as if he's got recent international or European experience that suggests he can kick on. Is it likely we are conducting business whilst the main players are on holidays?

9.) 13 Jun 2017 22:58:05
Troops a question? Do u trust our manager? Well shut the f&$k up eh in Brendan we trust or are we a acting like the zonbies hh.

10.) 13 Jun 2017 23:02:19
I hope this goes into a Hayes and he never signs Christie all day for me. I just hope that when The Aberdeen manager goes he takes Hayes with him to Sunderland.

11.) 13 Jun 2017 23:30:30
I'm not that keen on signing Hayes either, but:
1. If we were linked to a player from any other league in the world who had 11 goals and 24 assists last season we'd be saying sign him up.
2. The best opposition he has came up against is ourselves and he has done it against us on many occasions.
3. Christie has done nothing to suggest he's good enough for Celtic or that he is a better player than Hayes.

12.) 13 Jun 2017 23:46:00
It's the fact we should be looking to get CL quality in Christie has potential Hayes is not any better than what we have.

13.) 13 Jun 2017 23:56:30
commons left a month ago stan as his contract was up, and o'connell was a reserve player, im talking more about de vries ciftci gms bailly and possibly bitton and forrest, toure is another one who has left after the expiry of his contract but i never put him or commons on my list as they were off anyway, and i nearly forgot scott allan lol.

14.) 14 Jun 2017 01:24:17
I do enjoy the raise a point - act like a zombie - logic that pops up here every now and then. Its not a matter of trust, its a group of folks online discussing something that may never happen. Be a dull wee site if for every question, query or quip the second retort was 'dont be a zombie' or 'hail hail'.

15.) 14 Jun 2017 07:48:49
Am not to bothered about hayes signing think it will be good cover and young christie getting a game every week would help him develop because he'll not get that with us.

16.) 14 Jun 2017 08:18:25
Janko aswell.

17.) 14 Jun 2017 12:35:42
What's a Zonbie ;-D.

18.) 14 Jun 2017 17:04:49
I'd rather have Hayes than Forrest, atleast Hayes ha she an end product. Also our first 11 aside the squad is mediocre at best. I mean de vries couldn't keep a spot when handed to him on a plate, Erik/ boyata both pretty poor especially in Europe. We have no back up to either Sinclair brown Armstrong or Forrest ATM, and we currently have only 2 strikers in the squad.

19.) 14 Jun 2017 20:58:57
Various reports today we are trying to sign januzzi. usual websites plus betting odds so take from that what u want lol.

20.) 14 Jun 2017 20:58:00
oh aye wylie that's another dud i forgot lol.

21.) 14 Jun 2017 21:20:58
Aye shandybhoy we'll all shut up because you said so eh! And name one person who says they don't trust the manager? No we're just questioning the logic in buying a 30 year old journeyman for 1.2m plus one of our top young players! Which is the exact opposite of what the ZONBIES do, who don't question anything that goes on over at the asbestos dome! Hence the name the gullibles!
