Jozo passes Both parts of medical clubs still in talks about the fee.

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!

ED do you know if any truth about the Michael O Neil story? Celtic supposed to be sounding him out For the Summer?


{Ed007's Note - Well he's Irish so that should be enough for some fans.}

1.) 02 Feb 2016 14:44:18

2.) 02 Feb 2016 16:24:28
Cheers mate.

3.) 02 Feb 2016 22:04:06
Haha true ed!
If efe ambrose was Irish, then most would hail him as a messiah.
What do u make of the Nesbitt loan deal? I think it could be a cracking move for him.

{Ed007's Note - I'm pleased for the lad but I'd rather he was getting game time with us.}



30 Nov 2015 15:18:39
Well close to the winter window opening wonder who Parks and PL has picked out for us now?


1.) 30 Nov 2015 16:26:21
Hoping to get rid of some the players taking up wages to free up space for the summer.

2.) 30 Nov 2015 20:48:38
Still too much deadwood, we desperately need a clear out.

3.) 30 Nov 2015 22:18:04
I would say straight away get rid of:

Blackett, boerrigter, stokes

then we need to look to replace players with better options like Ciftci and GMS. Maybe these replacements can come from young players stepping up.

The main issue for me though is our GK and CB.

With Izzy, Teirney, Lustig and Janko for full backs, plus ambrose to cover. We should concentrate on finding a partner for Simunovic, still unclear whether or not boyata will step up to the mark. Gordon isn't good enough either unfortunately.

The only positive of not getting through the EL group may be that we can let players go in january and not need to rush to replace them as the squad size won't need to be as big.

4.) 30 Nov 2015 23:47:40
From what I've gathered from the agm and and our yearly spend spin. We have recived part payments for departing players and that is all that has been spent. The rest of the fees have been counted and included in subsequent years accounts as income and have offset losses in other areas. Route one accountancy from Pl. In his spreadsheet he doesn't have to risk a thing to keep us in the black.
Don't expect anything in January. No El money and depreciation of assets value (players) due to not making an advertising impact (pumped in europe) .

5.) 01 Dec 2015 13:28:42
Michael O'Halloran!

6.) 01 Dec 2015 19:49:37
Reckon we will only get loan players in which I used to moan about but when you see some of the dross we have got in over the last year or so then it's not necessarily bad as majority have been poor with Denayer the exception so just as well they were loans and not permanent deals!

7.) 03 Dec 2015 20:23:02
I'm expecting a very dull window.

8.) 06 Dec 2015 19:56:53
I reckon some of us could be pleasantly surprised either in Jan or summer window .
My reasoning is the board take, maybe an optimistic opinion, of what is needed . When it is obvious that we are lacking in personnel they find the funds to make a few purchases .
I know that no matter who and how many they buy there will be some who will say not enough quality or quantity .

9.) 08 Dec 2015 01:23:42
January is a very difficult window to attract or entice really good players - especially if their clubs are in European competition or going for trophies domestically.
We might do what we did last January and look to the Scottish leagues although we do have Christie already coming and Allen seems to have broken through?
I think if we manage to offload the unsettled players. We could well bring in a couple in areas that need improving?

10.) 09 Dec 2015 14:34:16
This is what i've heard

These are our main targets for the January window

Fabrice N'Sakala - Anderlect
Marko Leskovic - Rijeka
Michael O'Halloran - St Johnstone
Lennart Thy - St Pauli

Also hoping to get some out the door too.

Ambrose (only if John Souttar is signed for a mimimal fee)
Johansen (If we get a decent offer)
Ciftci (out on loan)



10 Nov 2015 22:05:21
Ed do you know who we are supposed to looking at in Portugal?


{Ed007's Note - No mate.}

1.) 10 Nov 2015 23:16:24
Thanks it will probably be another dud anyway.

{Ed007's Note - That's what I like to see, Tony, a good bit of positivity to give us all a boost. :=o

I am not sure if this topic has been said so apologise if it has but I would like to bring up the issue of Stewarding at Servco yesterday. I read somewhere that all there stewards are not Qualified and that at least some are just volunteers IF this is the case surely SFA should step in and sort that out before a player manager or fan gets seriously hurt?


1.) 30 Apr 2017 22:50:13
Tony are you seriously expecting the SFA to take action against sevco? The control stewards in an always hotly contested event allowed a nutter onto the arena to confront Brown (god help us if he had any weapon)
In fairness, it took four of them to stop LG tying a scarf to the post (as per prior instructions)
What will it take to see that the major problems with Scottish football originate from the bigot brew at ibrokes? kill that and all the other side issues will have to readjust and die.



14 Apr 2017 14:16:59
I think its time Regan resigned or gets the sack from the SFA Servco has brought nothing to our game apart from bad press and the SFA have just sat back as far as I know and let them do it we had White then Green and now King ( would it not be funny if he had gold some where in his name) enough is enough stop this circus NOW.


1.) 14 apr 2017 16:51:34
it is gold mate, comedy gold.



13 Mar 2017 19:04:40
I was just listening to the Radio Snide and had to turn it if how can a program say they call it as it is and don't sit on the fence when they have a presenter like DJ on there show? Never has and never will say anything bad about his beloved team so how is that unbiased?


1.) 13 Mar 2017 19:19:48
Don't listen to it. What do you expect to hear from that Billyboy lardass?

2.) 13 Mar 2017 19:26:40
Tony-BFDJ once made the comment on Radio Clyde after old firm mayhem that (quote) 'the reason for sectarianism in Scotland is Catholic schools'. I was cut off trying to challenge the comment by asking what his assertion was based on and if he didn't think Orange marches in my home town of Airdrie and Rangers 100 year old anti-Catholic signing policy was a bigger issue? He is a thick ignorant and arrogant loyalist apologist.

3.) 13 Mar 2017 19:44:37
Big Sutton called dj a cheerleader he's right plus that station only put callers on way questions that suits them. That really gets on my t-ts just as well for forums like this you can make a point and get others views agree with your point HH.

4.) 13 Mar 2017 20:50:13
Stopped listening to that shite years ago he's a joke.

5.) 13 Mar 2017 22:40:54
What cracks me up on Snide is the whole, oh you have an opinion on Sevco but you are a celtic fan so it doesn't warrant anything, then the anchor man tries to poke fun at the celtic fan joined in by bfdj and whatever ex-hun pundits they have on.

Just as bad is that anchor stevie Thompson saying over the hill didn't foul Griffiths enough for a penalty so stevie it was a foul in the box, which is? Wait for it; a penalty. Anyhow games gone now and the sheep are a further two points clear so good weekend 🍀⚽.

6.) 13 Mar 2017 22:41:51
@elvis88 - of course people are going to agree with your posts on here unless its one of mine!

7.) 14 Mar 2017 13:10:56
UJ, how's that new share issue going? Perhaps if at any time that you can acknowledged your team's failings and that of the Spivs running down your new club; then all other supporters will give you a bit more respect.

8.) 14 Mar 2017 17:36:35
@ignatiuslola - it isn't a new share issue. DK has been told he has to make an offer for the full club as it has been decided his buying of shares along with the 3 bears was deemed the 1 collective and not separate purchases. It won't go through though as some of the shares were bought at 70p and my Financial Advisor ( Timalloy ) has said they are currently trading at 27.5p so who in there right mind would sell for 20p
Happy to set you straight.
P. S. I can honestly say I couldn't care less what other supporters think of me or my club. I think there is more important issues in the world and life in general.



07 Mar 2017 16:56:18
What a surprise that the cup game is again on the Sunday the day after the Aberdeen v Hibs game the pitch will be a mess.


1.) 07 Mar 2017 18:47:20
It's a shambles at the best of times.



02 Mar 2017 19:18:24
RlP Tommy you and jinky were my heroes growing up I had great times going standing in the jungle with my cousins mesmerised with you both.

Maybe he wants to go if he thinks it's better for him. In that case it's better for all if he does As long as we get a good deal from it. If we keep him it would not be good for anyone an unhappy player and not a good advert for us bringing in new talent if they think we will stop them from achieving their dreams.

Its sad in a way about Moussa Dembele But not kidding ourselves on it was coming sooner or latter I don't know about the situation with Paddy and maybe Celtic have tried this before but why don't we ask to bring Paddy in on a contract and give Man City first option to get him back with a release clause solely for Man City?


{Ed007's Note - I don't know if we have tried that bit those kind of deals are quite common on the continent with young players. What I did notice in an interview with Rodgers the other week

"If there is a possibility he is coming back as a permanent player then Celtic will have a good feeling for him. You can have first refusal, but it doesn’t really come into it unless the player wants to come back."

Has Brendan Rodgers let slip that we have first refusal on Roberts? If City are selling AND we can afford it AND Paddy wants it that's it a done deal?}

Thanks for that Ed I did not see it when it was on Very interesting I loved what BR was saying and I think he is very articulate and political also the way he answered which is good IMO.

I would give player of the year to BR I know he is not a player before any one steps in but what a difference he has made its nothing more than miraculous and to be honest the full team deserves player of the year for me.
