Norwich have agreed a fee for Turnbull. HH.


1.) 18 Jun 2019 21:49:49
Don't be surprised if he is loaned out to sevco.

2.) 18 Jun 2019 23:13:20
So did Celtic.

3.) 18 Jun 2019 23:45:09
Your point aindoh?

4.) 19 Jun 2019 00:12:52
So he will get pumped by Liverpool in his first game.

5.) 19 Jun 2019 00:58:38
He was going here all along I think he knew of the intrest and wouldn’t sign with us, just hope some news in some targets pop up soon bit quiet at mo.

6.) 19 Jun 2019 12:54:51
Same as last few transfer windows nothing early and nothing till it’s too late

Players should have been ready to sign quickly and 3 weeks till we play our first game with a squad 10 players down at least.

Dortmund, Real Madrid all had players prepared and signed ASAP to get used to their teammates god even Aberdeen had 4-5 players signed up.

Not one player linked with us so far has even been remotely exciting.



28 Feb 2019 11:40:30
Is it true that BR wanted Kennedy to go with him but was turned down? If so then fair play to him, that's the action of a true fan and not someone who always puts their own ego first. HH.


1.) 28 Feb 2019 12:02:49
Ye and woods.
Rodgers was willing to leave us without ANY first team coach that had worked with this group of players going into the hearts match.



16 Feb 2019 08:52:07
Bhoys, here we go again.
We show a bit of progress on the domestic front and everyone is full of praise for our team. Then we come up against a very decent European side and we're found wanting. It's the way it is. It's what happens. So many of you seem to be taking it as a personal insult so let me make it clear to all.

we are a strong team domestically but we are weak on the European front.
I am as passionate about Celtic as any of you, but I realise that we have our limitations on the bigger scale so please stop yapping like school kids when we take on a much higher level of opposition.

Do I wish we were more competitive? Yes I do, but we are where we are in the grand scheme of things. The days of 1967 are long gone, we have no automatic entitlement to anything on the European scene. Everything is as it is so let's focus on the things we can influence and forget the stuff we can't. Whatever replies you want to make are fine but please stop saying our club is in the doldrums. Be a true Celtic fan and support the club more than you criticise it. HH.


1.) 16 Feb 2019 11:04:07
Strachan got us to the last 16 of the champions League (twice) with Telfer Caldwell McManus Naylor in defence.

Almost beat a world class AC Milan side in last 16

So why can't we play better in Europe?

Nobody is talking about winning it but actually us showing some level of ability

Right now we play like a part time team in Europe, we look lost at that level, despite the fact we have done better with worse squads of players.

2.) 16 Feb 2019 11:09:25
I agree with most of what you say there bobthecat, but I wouldn't exactly say we were weak in Europe as we reached the knockout stages of EL. I'd say that was average. Don't forget we knocked out Leipzig and no one says they are a weak team, far from it.
It's clear though we need a couple of quality additions to be more consistent in how we play, and we need our best 11 available and on form or we struggle against the very good sides.

3.) 16 Feb 2019 13:46:17
isleogreen I remember thinking that after Zenit last season; one or two quality additions might give us that extra edge to go a wee bit further. Now look at us a year on and we're still in the same position. Even with the players we have we there is no excuse for the lack of courage on Thursday, which sadly is becoming the norm. IMO under Strachan we would have won that game, Lennon probably a toss up but Thursday was like watching a Deila team in Europe.

4.) 16 Feb 2019 15:01:14
Kevbhoy it's true since Deila era we have produced many technically great players but mentality is gone.

The wide open way we play is simply ridiculous.

To play this style you need a massive amount of quality in the squad at this level.

5.) 16 Feb 2019 21:25:55
Valencia are far from a top side. If it was Napoli that we lost to I’d say fair enough but Valencia away from home are bang average. They draw loads of games and away they rarely win.
We made this stage down to good fortune with Rosenborg let’s not kid ourselves. We lost 3/ 4 against the better sides in our group, we lost to AEK the worst side in the Champions league group stages. We have suffered our biggest defeat in our history at home to PSG and away to Barcelona in group stage and have won a solitary match in group stage under Rodgers.
He was piss poor with Liverpool in Champions league not even getting through the group stages.
If Lennon managed us in Champions League or in Europa there would never be a flat mediocre performance if we lost it’s because the opposition were of a high standard.
Valencia played about 5/ 10 and beat us, we were about 2/ 10 it was like watching a Scottish Championship game in 1st half the standard was so bad, neither team could string 3 passes together, they were there for the taking and as always we bottled it! Yeah we were missing key players but so were they and with our best team we have failed time and again in continental competition under Brendan. We have literally had 1 great performance all season in Europe.
Bring back Lennon IMO.

{Ed007's Note - If they bring back Lennon I'm chucking doing this site.}

6.) 16 Feb 2019 22:17:22
Great post GGGG. Rodgers only won a single game for Liverpool in the groups and it was from a 90 min penalty

Dropped into Europa League and lost at same stage we are at now. That's with English money. So the money excuses can drop now.

He's a good manager at dominating with superior players but not so good at tactics outside of just possession.

7.) 16 Feb 2019 23:17:45
I reckon we’ll qualify this week and beat Valencia away. Then we can congratulate the team for reaching the last 16, but still recognize we’re going backwards.

8.) 17 Feb 2019 05:15:45
Get rid of Brendan and bring Lennon back?


Turn it up you lot eh?

The guy has done wonders at our club since he came in, won every trophy on the bounce.

Yes, his record in Europe is poor (with Celtic and Liverpool)

He's still learning also, I understand the frustration, I feel it to.

But hopefully he learns from this, gets some quality additions in the summer and cracks on with it as we all hope he will.

But to say bin the manager after all he's done in his time here, well that is simply ludicrous.

Realise where we are right now and stop acting like spoilt brats.

We've had I too good domestically over the years and it seems a few have overlooked that and just want more and more.

Be grateful for what we have right now please.

9.) 17 Feb 2019 06:39:47
Nobody’s saying Rodgers is a bad manager far from it domestically he has been truely outstanding and in no way do I think Lennon is the answer he had his time and left hopefully Rodgers stays for however long he likes they are left Wondering tho if rodgers has a plan B when we don’t have Possesion and teams play the high press on us, right now the answer is no. you have to change your tactics to try and beat your opposition especially in Europe over in knock out format if they team are Better standard than you and alter your principles slightly to ultimately achieve the goal of progression in cup competitions. I’m hoping for an early goal to give us a chance on Thursdays game but IMO today’s game is more important and Europe as much as it frustrates me at times will always play second fiddle to domestic affairs.

10.) 17 Feb 2019 12:08:12
Wanted to stay clear of the site after Thursday and seeing the comment bring back Lennon has justified my decision. What a ludicrous suggestion.

11.) 17 Feb 2019 13:23:49
Gerry, my response to that ridiculous post from GGGG was a touch less diplomatic but Ed has chosen not to publish it. It’s a little bit disappointing but I guess I’ll have to use a bit more tact in these situations. However, my point is that I agree with you completely and perhaps I should avoid the site when the moonhowlers are out in force.



14 Feb 2019 14:01:57
I'll be pleasantly surprised if we go through over the 2 legs against Valencia. If it's a close battle instead of another humiliation at the hands of a very decent European team then that would be great. I will of course be cheering us on and hoping for the best, we are playing pretty well at the moment, our attack and defence seem to be gelling well and on our day we'll give anyone a decent game. Valencia are nobody's mugs though, they have lost fewer games this season than Real Madrid and are a flippin decent team so we need to be very wary. If we can avoid our early goal disease then who knows? HH.


1.) 14 Feb 2019 16:31:53
Keep the faith! I think it will be 2 hard games for both teams, but I believe we can do it. To all the Celtic fans who are going to the game sing your hearts out and cheer on our great club win lose or draw! Hopefully win of course 🤞.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 17:17:00
Good shout Mick, the fans have a big part to play tonight.



30 Jan 2019 07:25:39
Ed007, any truth in the rumour that Broony is staying on a new 2 year deal? Saw it on a fairly disreputable site (HITC) where the Melbourne guy Lou Sticca supposedly said they were disappointed he wasn't going to them but they wished him well at Celtic. HH.


{Ed007's Note - Most places are reporting it now.}

1.) 30 Jan 2019 10:48:25
I hope so Ed. He still has a lot to offer overall. Anyone remember what happened when he was written off a few seasons ago? He ended up giving us 2 incredible seasons of quality and leadership. I think he has it in him to do it again. HH.

{Ed007's Note - I've never written Brown off any of the other multiple times plenty of supporters (and his critics outside the Club) were but theses days I think it's a case of the mind is willing but the body might struggle.}

2.) 30 Jan 2019 11:09:22
He will end up doing what Lambert did. Coming on and helping see out games or in for games we need a bit of steel in midfield.
He brings so much more than just what he does on park though and I am glad he's staying.

3.) 30 Jan 2019 11:42:39
A big problem with our team is that it lacks experience through the middle.

I feel like a lot lies on Brown, which at his age is difficult to do alone.

We Really should have a few more experienced guys about to take the load off and to help take more pressure off our young or inexperienced players.

4.) 30 Jan 2019 12:30:37
I'll admit I wrote him off at the end of Deila's time but was delighted when he proved me wrong. However he's a couple of years older now and chances are he won't recapture that form but he will still have an awful lot to offer - even just his presence.

5.) 30 Jan 2019 14:13:20
Scott Brown staying is a wonderful piece of news. He's been a tremendous servant and thoroughly deserves a two year deal. Yes, he's probably been told he won't play every week, but to have his experience and leadership around the club is priceless. Also, I'd imagine he asked the gaffer what his plans for the future were before committing himself. Great news.

6.) 30 Jan 2019 14:46:12
Scott Brown when he is out injured I feel takes a few extra games to get back in his stride. Hopefully a run of games will do him good because I feel that after last old firm, he will hit them hard in next old firm.

7.) 30 Jan 2019 15:57:03
Tesla you say no experience but at what point do we credit mcgregor or Forrest with experience?

Forrest’s been around a while, mcgregor must be 24-25?

Sinclair not exactly young or rogic so midfield has a fair bit experience.

Brown staying is excellent news, can’t only be a good influence but imagine having another mid 30’s Guy in there with him and bang and the pace is gone.

8.) 30 Jan 2019 22:30:19
I think I mentioned this before but there was a lot of speculation that Bobby Lennox was finished on the day of the 1972 cup final and he actually played his last game for Celtic about 8 or 9 years later.

What we need to remember guys is that whilst a particular player may be our first choice it doesn't mean we are their first choice. As fans we can't understand why any player wouldn't jump at the chance to come to Celtic and we sometimes take it personally when they don't jump up and down with excitement and say yes immediately. That's life, that's football, that's the way it goes so let's relax for now and see what happens. HH.

If KT is going to be sold this Summer how on earth do you put a value on the lad?
According to Sky Sports, Man Utd have offered Crystal Palace £40m for England Under-21 defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka but Palace want closer to £60m for him. Absolutely crazy! HH.


1.) 11 Jun 2019 01:02:34
Exactly Bob. Going on current market value, I believe we could easily command at least £25million, EASILY.

PL, although not a favourite amongst most supporters is very shrewd in business, he would get us top dollar if KT was actually going to leave, of that I have no doubt.

2.) 11 Jun 2019 07:44:26
I agree about PL and he would also have a sell-on percentage clause.
Would hate to see him leave but he will eventually.

3.) 11 Jun 2019 08:49:50
Where are these rumours coming from? Here we have a Celtic fanatic, living the dream, who most of us saw as a future captain.

4.) 11 Jun 2019 10:06:45
As much as I think KT will inevitably leave one day, I just don’t see it right now when we’re on the brink of 9/ 10 in a row. if u read the daily rags today we’re selling KT, mcgregor and ntcham. absolute crap.

5.) 11 Jun 2019 10:11:47
Once a bhoy

On here a few days ago Ed advised his agents are speaking to Lyon but did state he isn't their first choice.

My concern is that they even want to have the conversation with them, tells me he will leave if the offer is right regardless of living the dream or 10 in a row.

6.) 11 Jun 2019 12:05:09
If KT does leave; I will feel much more disappointment and anger than I did when the manager announcement was made and very disillusioned at the direction we are heading from a position of vast superiority.
Whats the point of building a hotel, museum and state of the art training facilities, plus the new pitch and razzmatazz lighting if we don't have the team to reflect this image and ultimately the support to enjoy it - if we deteriorate and let the standards drop?
It's not as if we have a Dembele/ Boyata type situation, with a moody, prima donna player screaming to leave.
Cashing in on foreign players who use us as a stepping stone is one thing, but when we chase one-of-our-own out the door, it's wrong.

7.) 11 Jun 2019 12:12:25
KT will not leave before 10! I’d bet my house on it! And before I here comparisons with 2 face Rodgers it’s not even remotely the same! Here we have a Celtic man to the core who’s only 22 years old and on the cusp of 10 in a row! No chance he will leave! There’s plenty of time to move on in the future but certainly not now! I’d be astounded if KT left in the summer!

8.) 11 Jun 2019 12:35:33
If we keep hold of our scottish stars we will win 10 in a row.
Bain, KT, Mcgregor, Forrest, Christie, Griffthis and Brown and I would keep Lustig and Ajar who have that Scottish mentality. All those players have international experience and are born winners which will be crucial.

9.) 11 Jun 2019 12:58:42
Cant begrudge KT a move away as he's too good for our league now. If we are to raise funds for the rebuild then Ntcham and Rogic should be considered before Tierney, McGregor or Forrest.

10.) 11 Jun 2019 13:12:58
If KT leaves is won't be because he was chased out the door.
It will be his decision and made to further his career.
No matter when he goes he will go with my blessing and well wishes for the future.
This boy is one of our own and destined for the top, no way should any fan grudge him his chance or demand he stays.

11.) 11 Jun 2019 13:27:19
KT will leave when he feels Celtic have chucked it in moving to Lowell’s words of being at the CL table. If Lawell doesn’t get his finger out it could be this year. I personally can’t see him leaving before we do ten. However, if we shop once again in the bargain basement bin and loans he will go. And for his own sake so he should. It’s all down to Lawell. It always is. God feckin help us all.

12.) 11 Jun 2019 15:02:19
Magic that's nonsense KT will leave because he because he is good enough to play with the best teams in the world and win the biggest trophies in the world. The most it will be to do with lawwel will be getting us a great fee.

13.) 11 Jun 2019 15:20:32
The bubble will burst soon as the money involved is mind boggling.

14.) 11 Jun 2019 19:16:44
KT is one of us always will be I hoped he would be the one that would lead us to ten. Football careers are short his injuries are building up who knows if he will get the chance to get to where he deserves in 2 years time if he goes he goes with my blessing and support. Paul McStay is a prime example of someone who stayed too long.

15.) 11 Jun 2019 19:33:22
Every good player we have is being linked away, we were alledgelly in turmoil as "the rangers were coming" (still waiting) , Scott Brown slaughtered for eating a pizza after a night out instead of being praised for soaking up alcohol and yet Alan McGregor was videoed absolutely panelled harassing a woman (swept under carpet) .

Don't be so naive believing the nonsense media is spouting! They are trying their hardest to break us and it's not working.

16.) 11 Jun 2019 20:16:53
I don’t read into media phill and I hope he doesn’t go but I’ll support whatever he chooses. As for turmoil haha treble treble and ten on the horizon it’s great being a tim 🍀.

17.) 11 Jun 2019 22:26:49
KT is on roughly £25k a week, Robertson at Liverpool is on £100k, you do the maths.

18.) 11 Jun 2019 22:54:56
Defo is welshybhoy. I can't stop laughing at them thinking they have closed gap because they finished 9 points behind us.

19.) 12 Jun 2019 05:16:21
Robertson's on £60k not £100k. You do the maths.



09 Jun 2019 00:31:04
A prolific young striker we should consider is Erik Sorga from FC Flora. HH.


1.) 09 Jun 2019 05:36:40
Alexander Isak for me. Although at the moment I really have no idea who a realistic target is any more.

2.) 09 Jun 2019 09:59:41
Bob I take it you just heard the commentators talking about his stats when he came on for the last 10 minutes of the Northern Ireland game? 😂. Isak would be a great shout JimTim had a great season in the Dutch League on loan from Dortmund. For me these are the markets we should be looking at.



31 May 2019 22:37:39
True United Ireland, some of the remarks about Lenny are unfair. He's the new manager and some folk need to get over it and stop criticising him. HH.


1.) 01 Jun 2019 07:53:00

2.) 01 Jun 2019 11:16:34
Lenny first season in charge wee lost the title on last day made two cup finals. lost out one to rangers in extra time and win the other one and this was lennon walking into a team that was a mess. and may i point out this was a strong rangers side with walter smith at the helm who had just win two titles in a row. People on here only say negative things about lenny but leave out all the positives.

TTT, as much as I hate the thought of it I think you are right about Broony. There's no need for me to go on about how important he has been to us etc. but the truth is that he does slow our play down a lot. He still has a lot to offer us on and off the pitch though and I hope he stays for the foreseeable future in one role or another. HH.

Fair point Pud. We need to make this transfer window count and I do believe we will. Let's all be honest, do we really want a player who really wasn't bothered about coming? Fair play to Celtic for telling him to go and get stuffed but they need to show serious intent with a few quality signings now. #keepthefaith HH.
