The exclusive you gave on our podcast about Leigh Griffiths looks like being the correct information.
Reports are suggesting Celtic have until April 30th to activate the last year of his contract.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers, BB and a big thanks to "Stuart" who passed the info onto me 👍 I'm not sure if he even has a log in on here or he's just a lurker but he's got that spot on by the looks of it. Remember he also said that according to someone high up at Celtic that Ajeti is "one of the worst human beings he's ever come across" and that his attitude is shocking.}

08 Apr 2021 11:21:00
That made my mind up about Ajeti.
I think we should try and move him on because he will never get fit with a bad attitude.

{Ed007's Note - I'm starting to think that way as well mate.}

08 Apr 2021 11:22:00
Ed007, if I recall correctly Charlie Adam said something similar and that his signing was a big mistake.

{Ed007's Note - Adam said signing Ajeti was a gamble (aren't all transfers gambles?) and that he had heard that he wasn't at the level people think - I think that was more about his ability he was referring to.}

08 Apr 2021 11:28:55
I thought there was a player inside Ajeti but it takes more than just talent or ability as we're well aware with some first team players attitudes this season.

We've made some bad buys recently when you look at Klimala, Ajeti and Bolingoli to name but 3.

08 Apr 2021 11:33:27
I also think LG is done and his reported £15K a week wage would be better spent elsewhere.

08 Apr 2021 11:33:52
Guys i agree with you on Ajeti. I think its time wee griff looks elsewhere. He is still one of my recent favourites but i do not think we should waste any more time waiting on him "getting fit". Only he can get himself fit and that doesn't seem to be happening any time soon.

08 Apr 2021 11:54:20
See if the Ajeti rumour is true. Scandalous that it wasn't picked up prior to signing him. He didn't just become one of the worst humans beings with a stinking attitude. Complacency at board recruitment level is going to cost us millions in the next few years. Suppose it's ok we sold Big Van Dijk for millions.

08 Apr 2021 12:01:31
"One of the worst human beings he's ever come across". Wow, that's a pretty grim assessment to make of any person Ed. Are there any teams sniffing about who'd be willing to let us recoup a % of our outlay for him?

{Ed007's Note - I'm sure if he's available somebody on the continent will buy him.}

08 Apr 2021 12:22:45
Hopefully Ed because it's quite obvious he's got talent but he only shows it in brief glimpses.

{Ed007's Note - I thought the lack of a preseason was affecting him and he would get fitter as the year went on but it just never happened, I do think there's a player in there tgough.}

08 Apr 2021 12:40:05
Edouard will be sold in the summer and our other 3 strikers aren’t good enough to keep for next season.
I know they haven’t had much game time but Ajeti has only scored One goal in Seven months, Klimala has only scored One goal in 6 months and Griffiths has only scored One goal in 4 months.

08 Apr 2021 13:15:05
Please Buzz, no more stats 🙏 on our present strikers.

08 Apr 2021 13:20:12
Al ne mentioned toney, but you just have to look at the shape of him, poor signing and waste of money.

08 Apr 2021 14:17:54
Ajeti is just another example of our pathetic recruitment. He joins a mile long line of utter punts who do nothing. The only difference is we spent £5m instead of our usual £2-3m. If we don't have the worst scouts in world football I pity the fools even worse than us. The only light in the tunnel we are in is Lawell, the architect of our strategy us leaving. Pity it's over ten years and 9 out of 12 failures to reach the CL late. If he took all the duds he signed home, he would need to buy a tower block to house them.

08 Apr 2021 14:33:59
'Pity the fools' 😄🤣😂.

09 Apr 2021 13:40:07
Sorry Pedro, duly noted.
It sure is depressing stuff.

07 Apr 2021 22:45:03
All a will say is if eddie howe has to be persuaded to come it won't take a lot to persuade him to leave in a year or so. Let's look elsewhere he isn't for us we need a long term plan.

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Apr 2021 07:23:41
good point.
Not in any hurry to get in and assess what he has and what he needs.
There is still a Scottish Cup to play for and what a start it would be if he got that.
Not my first choice but.

08 Apr 2021 09:08:55
Did Neil Lennon not take a week to consider the offer after Lawwell approached him in the showers? Some amount of jumping to conclusions here, he's not even in the door and you've got him back out again.

07 Apr 2021 22:09:55
howes agent has said there are many clubs after him and talks of any deal being close are extremely premature.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Apr 2021 22:19:12
He also said he would not be in glasgow until the summer.

07 Apr 2021 22:21:38
I'm pretty sure his agent made that comment a number of weeks ago. Just because it's being regurgitated today doesn't mean it's still accurate, but it might be. HH.

07 Apr 2021 22:41:00
I think it was just made bestybhoy.

07 Apr 2021 22:48:15
No am afraid these comments were made today.

08 Apr 2021 08:17:36
I'm not convinced that Eddie Howe will be anywhere near Glasgow let alone Celtic in the near future.

For me he'll end up at Palace or Newcastle this summer regardless of league.

My hope is that our plan is to appoint a D. O. F when McKay arrives, get him in place and then, along with the D. O. F, look at a shortlist for the Manager role.

As far as Managers go, we could do a lot worse than the ex Dortmund coach, Favre.

08 Apr 2021 09:06:25
Article on BBC about granada and their coach. He sounds like the type we should be looking for. Contract is up at end of season so no compensation to pay.

08 Apr 2021 09:29:01
Wee Wullie Mcginty, s contract is up can we not offer him the job?

08 Apr 2021 11:09:42
Pedro and PK85 I would not disagree with any of those If it's not Howe we need to get our finger out ofcourse get it right but time is ticking and not that much time to assess the squad and get set up for Europe.

08 Apr 2021 12:23:33
If our plan is to let McKay appoint a DoF, then they choose a manager, then we’ll be in June at the earliest when they start looking. We have basically written off the CL this year, and playing catch up in the league before it’s even started. Most of the squad will be out the door before a manager is even in place.
They’ve also got to sell season tickets. C.V. means I’ll have to give it consideration rather than just blindly handing over £600, and if they haven’t got a manager in place, or it’s Keane or Clarke then that makes the decision up for me.

08 Apr 2021 14:56:21
It could be that perhaps the board have a new manager in place and DoF And will reveal all when McKay takes over on the 16th? I can hope anyway but I can't see the new manager taking over full time until the end of the season perhaps just watch the squad we have and assess them I can wish anyway.

07 Apr 2021 19:29:32
Big announcement next week.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Apr 2021 19:51:17
Fact or fiction Rich T?
I'm guessing fiction unless you can enlighten us. HH.

07 Apr 2021 21:08:44
Well it won't be howe, I can assure you that.

07 Apr 2021 21:31:34
Wulie10 how can you assure anyone that? You don't know for certain.

07 Apr 2021 21:32:15
Why will it not?

07 Apr 2021 21:58:52
Any of yous been on sky sports the night.? The guys using us to attention from the pl. He has been offered the job and he is playing around. Time to move on before its to late.

07 Apr 2021 22:28:00
Wulie10, maybe Celtic have moved on. HH.

07 Apr 2021 22:58:12
So many more bull stories coming out it must be close the more clutching at straws reporters are doing the more funny it gets there even pop singers tryng to get some publicity by saying they have spotted Howe house hunting what a carry on one bull story after another there are only a hand full of people who really know what's going on so until Celtic say something well it will only b bull stories.

08 Apr 2021 00:19:23
It was the Fratellis front man who is a massive Celtic fan that supposedly said he seen Howe house hunting the street next to his (The street where Lennon and Gerrard live) . Sounds like made up pish to me. If Howe is holding out until the summer to make his mind up and see if a PL club come calling then we should move on to the next candidate. Favre is available and said he was interested so Celtic should interview him.

08 Apr 2021 12:23:58
Big announcement is new smart toaster in the players kitchen.

08 Apr 2021 12:25:07
A PL club has come calling Bravetart. A Peter Lawwell club.

06 Apr 2021 21:48:39
I wouldn't put my money on Howe yet lads. Keane stories are hotting up here in Ireland. He did supposenly have a meeting with DD and is very interested in the job. So I wouldn't hold our breathes just yet on Howe.

Agree2 0Disagree

06 Apr 2021 21:50:50
No chance, we will be getting Kennedy. : (.

06 Apr 2021 22:14:21
Keane story just isn't going away LAW. AT this stage it wouldn't surprise me.

06 Apr 2021 22:34:30
We'll see. Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.
What's more important is that we don't get hyped up by the media. None of them know anything, and that's GUARANTEED. How do I know that? Well it's common sense guys because if any of them did know anything for sure they'd be shouting it from the rooftops and claiming to own the story.
Everything we're seeing is opinions and unnamed sources and stupid bollox being quoted by individuals who want to use the story to draw attention to themselves.
Do not be fooled by their rubbish. HH.

06 Apr 2021 22:41:26
Very true bestybhoy.

06 Apr 2021 23:59:10
Oh aye Paul ate u on the whined up lol.

07 Apr 2021 00:30:06
Guys have some consideration for our my mental health and blood pressure. :P.

07 Apr 2021 00:56:26
Do you think Paul it is the DOF or someone for that type of role is holding up this. Lots of talk howe wants Hughes of Bournemouth to come. Harkins was seemingly near done if reports were to be believed. Or is there more to it.

07 Apr 2021 08:59:34
Guys, I’m new year, always reading messages on here and wished I could reply but didn’t have an account. We need to back the club regardless of Manager, DOF etc. We have had 10 favourites, the bookies have made £10000s off us just on manager bets. If I placed £100 on Micky Mouse he would be in the running. My own thoughts for months is Keane DOF and the Manager as Howe but this is only an opinion.

07 Apr 2021 09:12:12
The longer the negotiations go on, the more fake news and mischief making speculation there will be. However, it would all go away if and when the club have something to report.

07 Apr 2021 12:38:56
Very true OAB2 👍.

07 Apr 2021 21:40:35
I'm getting fed up with will he be joining or not, the board will make the decision and announce it when they are good and ready to do so.

06 Apr 2021 10:36:36
McKay confirmed as coming in on the 19th April, hopefully we will get an announcement regarding the DOF and Manager.

Now the ball is in play.

06 Apr 2021 10:13:53
Guys the london stock exchange were notified when both lennon and rodgers LEFT the club. they were not notified when they were appointed to the club.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Apr 2021 10:37:40
So, it's even worse than we thought? We were waiting for today as it was supposed to be done and just the SE formality. If that's not the case then by the hour wee Strachan s blurting out, don't out your eggs comment looks more like what I thought it was. A warning all is not great and certainly not a done deal.

06 Apr 2021 12:21:02
Magicpole, it's not worse than we thought. Why do you think it is?
Who said that anything was definitely going to happen today?
We're hoping things happen quickly but the club has never named today or any other day as a definite date for anything to be announced. The media is rubbing it's hands over fans who fall for their nonsense. T
We did receive confirmation this morning that Dom McKay is coming in sooner than expected so that has to be a bit of good news. It may not be everything we all wanted to hear but it's a start.
We will have a new manager soon, we might be getting a DOF and there could be other additions but until it happens please stay away from the media if this is how it's affecting you. HH.

06 Apr 2021 12:43:57
spot on bestybhoy. some fans are going into complete meltdown.

06 Apr 2021 13:46:46
So I am the onky one that was looking to this morning and hoping the stock exchange, as we have been told, is the first instance of him actually coming? Now we are hearing it won't be until June and a possible hurdle will be him wanting his pal to he DOF. If that's the case then I don't think We should agree to that. He should pick his backroom staff but the DOF is another matter. We hire his pal and he's off as soon as Eddy gets an offer for a EPL team that suits his ambition. I would be surprised if any board would agree to that unless the guy is brilliant. I don't know enough about him to judge that. My worry is not restricted to Howe, if he doesn't want to come or his conditions for accepting are too much, then say goodbye and move on. We have a Herculean task to refloat our strike ship. Waiting until June is a recipe for disaster. We are never prepared for the CL when we have a manager, the need to replace those leaving, get in players who are actually defenders and a goalie and winger, tells me we are in for a torrid time trying to qualify. It seems that no matter what task our board embark upon it takes an age. They must know if they are go8ng to accept his request his pal joins him. If it's yes, say that and ask him to sign. If it's not acceptable say that and move on. I would love Howe to be appo8nted but we can't hang about as he tees up another club coming in. I mentioned Strachan who knows there are issues and warned not to get all hopeful thst it will happen soon. I have taken that on-board and woukd like the board to make their offer and force the issue. It makes no difference to Howe dragging it out, and may even help him get an EPL job using us as a trigger to move in. He's entitled to do that, but if he is not willing to give an answer quickly I wouldn't be gang8ng about. Every week that goes by is a week less to deal with the shambles not acting quick enough to get rid of Lennon caused. It seems making decisive decisions is a skill set our board don't possess. Time is if the essence, I don't trust the board and I think Howe eemand8ng his pal gets the job too is taking the piss. All this in principle stuff is bollocks either accept it or the board should tell him to bolt. I wonder if Keane woukd be willing to still take it after he seen the overwhelming majority of us against him getting it. I have said previously I would support Keane, at least he wouldn't come out with the in principle piss and want to name the DOF. I want the board to break the habit of their tenure and make a feckin decision and not do their usual dithering while we need action. Howe to me is like a player who doesn't want to be here no matter how good they are, catch ye.

{Ed007's Note - You probably weren't the only one looking at the LSE this morning but the question is why you and them were? If you choose to believe stuff in the press and social media it's hardly the Club's fault when the bull$hit doesn't come true. You're taking out your frustrations & disappointment on the Club rather than the people making this stuff up.}

06 Apr 2021 14:09:09
maigicpole. chill out mate a new manger will be in place for the summer the club does not need to do a report every morning on what's going on. the media are putting every name and story out there a lot of them doing the story's will be pro sevco having a laugh at the meltdown of Celtic fans on social media.

06 Apr 2021 14:25:49
Ed I never bought the SE crap. Lennon was announced on a Saturday night, in a shower. I waited though, because it might have been the way they wanted to go, although when I saw nothing thus morning, I wasn't surprised. Why I am getting at the board is their form for dithering. They should make their final offer, he was supposed to be think8ng it over an Easter egg, another load of made up manure. Tell him the truth, we can't wait and he has to let us know. I think it's gone too l8bg and am thinking yes using us to get an English club, I hope I'm. wring but that's how I feel. If he doesn't want to come I won't bother my arse. I have always had the opinion you don't any to be at our club feck off then. But, I do worry about time being wasted. Hopefully he will sign but if he hasn't by the end of this week we walk away.

{Ed007's Note - Who told you Howe was thinking it over during Easter, who told you Howe was wanting his pal as DOF, was it the same people that said Harkin was a certainty for that job and was bringing in staff from Man City?
I never heard any of that that come from the Club so yes it was made up manure, but made up manure that you believed. Like I said you're taking your frustrations out on the Club because you're believing rubbish on the internet and over things you think should happen.}

06 Apr 2021 14:52:31
I hear you. And if we are taking your point to it's conclusion Howe might not have even talked to us. Do we believe he has, and if so why? It came from the same places all the other stuff did? I haven't read a single word from Celtic 're Howe, so under your rationale, that could be bull also. Do you believe we have talked to him? And if so, why? He hasn't commented, the club haven't commented either. It works both ways. Do you think we are even negotiating with him? We can't say all the rest is groundless and leave out we might not have even considered him, never mind offered him it.

{Ed007's Note - OK.}

06 Apr 2021 15:37:50
Until Celtic announce it ignore them all. I stopped clicking on all there click bait crap years ago IV also learned until Celtic announce we know nothing.

06 Apr 2021 16:21:56
That's why the support are clutching at any story flying about. The board don't tell us nothing. There communication with the support is scandalous, it's our club we finance it. We travel every corner of the world supporting them. We deserve better communication than we get. Saying that i know everyone who's every played for Celtic's birthday or when they want money off me. Disgrace the contempt they have for the support.

06 Apr 2021 18:32:12
If we are to believe nothing then as far as we know they've all been 9kay8ng monopoly since the season started. hold on, that actually makes sense. The board do treat us like rubbish. We all knew that Lennon had to go in September or earlier, they coukdnt see it. Called us over reactors, well, we weren't and it proves we are being run by dithering rubbishbags who couldn't make a decision if the 10 depended on it. It was their pal. I agree about the birthdays too, and all the old games they show as if that deflects from what a shower of useless barstewards they all are. If anything can be fecked up, our board are in a league of their own.

06 Apr 2021 09:20:46
I saw a rumour that we're interested in Kristijan Lovric. We were linked with him last season as well so it would definitely fall into the category of a "club signing" but probably one that would please a lot of the fans if the incoming manager was on board with it. He's 25, Croatian international, can play either wing and has excellent delivery from set pieces. He's been at Gorica for 3 seasons now so not the highest level but has 44 goals and 21 assists in 90 games which is impressive.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Apr 2021 10:43:30
Have we not had enough Lawells to last us a lifetime?

06 Apr 2021 11:13:02
Definitely Magicpole but there's a difference between a Lawwell ego signing and taking advantage of prudent scouting. I'd be surprised if it came to anything but it's the sort of profile I'd love to see this summer; International players who are flying at their clubs, full of confidence and hungry to make the step up.

06 Apr 2021 11:30:35
Kevbhoy, it's more media nonsense. We don't have a head of recruitment, we don't have a manager and our new CEO hasn't started yet so unless it's the tea lady doing the deal I wouldn't be getting too excited just now. HH.

06 Apr 2021 12:10:55
It would definitely be a surprise if it happened Besty but, like I said, it's the type of player profile I'll be hoping for once the appropriate people are in place. We've had too many hopeful punts over the past few years.

06 Apr 2021 14:28:24
Paper talk and as mentioned, unless it's the tea lady it's made up crap.

06 Apr 2021 15:16:35
I would like to thank surely Celtic have learned the lesson about signing players without the manager or perhaps the DoF okaying it and IF we do bring in a player without a manager being announced I would hope that we have some one sorted for the position as manager and he has agreed to the signing WE certainly don't want to go back to the PL mentality as far as players signing goes surely we have learned that lesson if nothing else.

06 Apr 2021 15:38:24
Magicpole how can you confidently say its paper talk when you were having a meltdown in the above thread about paper talk.

06 Apr 2021 18:19:49
He certainly can't DC because it was on a Celtic fan page lol.

07 Apr 2021 00:35:57
I am not saying the story is true but just because Lawwell is leaving and Hammond has left, does not mean we have stopped looking at players and that we can't move for a player if the opportunity arises.

John Kennedy said as much the other day.

07 Apr 2021 10:59:12
Exactly LAW. It would be crazy to throw months or years of scouting in the bin just because Nick Hammond has left. The key is making sure the new DOF or manager like what's presented to them rather than just charging on and signing players.

07 Apr 2021 11:47:50
DC you are right. We don't know anything. Not a single thing. I was having a meltdown not because of the papers, but what came out of Strachan's mouth. That was clear it's not in the bag. As for anything else going on, you're right. We sometimes choose what we wish is true to believe. I think we all need to knock that on the head.
