Why are Celtic saying KT has his price but Calmac is not for sale. Seems odd. Surely position should be the same for both - young, talented and on long term contracts.


1.) 23 Jun 2019 18:09:13
Maybe they know something about his hip injury and are willing to let him go.

2.) 23 Jun 2019 18:20:19
Or more than likely. they haven’t told them a value, and simply said 15m isn’t close and the media are lying as usual.

3.) 23 Jun 2019 18:21:36
Because if they sell them both in the one window it represents selling the club out IMO

There would be a backlash just my opinion when as you point out they are on long term contract's.

4.) 23 Jun 2019 19:47:21
Or maybe KT has told them he wants to move on. I think he’ll be gone by the end of this window.

5.) 24 Jun 2019 08:25:50
I think KT wants to go onto the highest level plus from what I heard was that he wasn't keen on the standard of players being brought in.



01 Sep 2018 08:11:50
Someone is going to have to explain to me why we didn't sell Boyata for £9m and then reinvest in someone who actually wants to play for us. We will lose him for nowt next year and he is not as good as he thinks he is. Stupid decision as I'm certain if our scouts did their job we could get a decent CB for £5m or so. One of several bad decisions this window. They aren't great but will win most of their games and the game on Sunday is a must win to put down a marker.


{Ed002's Note - A good CB has arrived on loan.}

1.) 01 Sep 2018 09:06:08
Emanuel emenike is a free agent might be worth a punt big burly striker could do Us a turn as cover fir Griffiths and eddy.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 09:44:44
Chink67 I think that the plan could have been to get through the qualifiers then punt him.
We needed him for they games and the manager knew it.
The gaffer expected him to be a professional and if he had I've no doubt we'd have qualified.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 11:06:23
Heaney, Eminike is a good player but do you know if he has calmed down with age? Seem to remember he was a bit of a bam on and off the field.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 11:57:29
Lacina Traore is also unattached and guiseppe Rossi but he was always injured.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 12:04:23
He’s 31 now think he would be sound enough as cover but don’t think Rodgers would mind a challenge as long as he can still put the ball in the net.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 09:19:19
How do we know he is a good CB ed? let's face it, he got a move to leicester for a huge fee, but he is very young with very little experience. Ajer and hendry are bomb scares together and now we are relying on an unknown and boyata, a player who does not want to be here. Rodgers must be gutted. Is it just me or does anyone else see that we are going backwards? The morale and harmony in the squad can't be great after the exploits of boyata and dembele. Forgive the negativity but a 22yr unknown Cb on loan and a 31yr freebie that no one else wanted just won't do it for me. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Filip Benković picked Leicester over Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Chelsea with Spurs also showing an interest. He may well be unknown to you but he is well respected in the game. I hope he fails miserably at Celtic so you are not disappointed.}

7.) 01 Sep 2018 13:27:06
The CB has been chased by some big clubs including ours for years and the free that no one wanted was signing foe Swansea till we approach him.

8.) 01 Sep 2018 13:43:30
Just because he was linked to various clubs does not reflect his ability, he may well have potential but we don't need potential, we need ability particularly at the back! The fact he picked leicester over the clubs you mentioned ed tells me that he lacks ambition and favours money, dortmund would have been a great place for him to go! Or maybe these clubs you mentioned are just media hype. Anyway ed I ask again how do we know he is any good and not just another experiment? Please try and reply without being sarcastic. We all know we can't afford to have another experiment at the back. ☘HH.

{Ed002's Note - Just forget it then. Try the approach of screaming vile abuse at him and start up a hate group on Facebook and force him out of the club. I truly hope he fails completely and loses Celtic multiple games to keep you happy.}

9.) 01 Sep 2018 13:51:30
I think the boy looks brilliant. I would play him tomorrow with Boyata. The only downer is he will leave before our CK qualifiers next season.

10.) 01 Sep 2018 13:58:30
For years kev, really? And we stole a 31 yr freebie from swansea, lol I should think so! Look I am just a bit concerned about where we are going and the signings we are making, like many fans I am not convinced. We are weaker than we were, no doubt about it. We lost armstrong, dembele and roberts who were first picks. Our defence is poor and we go out and get a freebie from killie, an unknown cb on loan, 2 young boys who are far from first team material and a LB who we punted a year ago. Forgive me for not being ecstatic. ☘HH.

11.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:55
Benkovic is a coup the board done well in that respect to get him here. Him Boyata and Ajer at the back will tear it up this season.

12.) 01 Sep 2018 14:27:56
Benkovic will be or is the best CB at our club make no mistake this boy is a great player watch and see.

13.) 01 Sep 2018 14:29:41
Would you rather we go out and sign 14 players who are not in our league.

14.) 01 Sep 2018 15:17:56
No marco, but their two centre halfs would walk into our team. ☘HH.

15.) 01 Sep 2018 15:56:18
he has to be a troll 😂 Benkovic is a fantastic signing and hopefully will bring the best out of Jozo as well. 4 solid centre halves in the squad, until big Starvin Marvin comes in and plays a sweeper as part of a one man defence. Solid.

16.) 01 Sep 2018 16:33:50
Armstrong and Roberts first picks?
Guess you didn't watch us last season
Both where on bench when fit.
Both CBs would walk in to our team?
I smell 💩💩💩💩💩.

17.) 01 Sep 2018 17:10:39
Is that supposed to be light hearted kev? ☘HH.

18.) 01 Sep 2018 18:19:54
Goldson and there other CH are rotten they are terrible under pressure and have no pace we will take 3 or 4 off them and I’m willing to wager you on that and I never bet.



24 Feb 2018 22:46:36
Said it before and will say it again, not trying to get McGinn was a mistake. He is better now than Kouassi, Armstrong and more reliable than Rogic and eventually could play the Broony role.


1.) 25 Feb 2018 11:40:54
Top players from other spl clubs that have joined simply haven't stood the test of time. Brown, LG and SA (1 season) when on form have been exceptions. Our top players almost always are brought in from abroad. If the talent isn't there domestically, which it isn't, we have to continue to look further afield. I like McGinn but will he take this team up a level? I don't think so.
From our first team squad there could be GK departures. 3 defenders, 4 mf and 2 strikers. From the loaned out list Christie looks like the only one likely to get any game time.
To replace the likely departures 6 players at a bare minimum have to be brought in. For me they ALL need to be first team ready. 25M might do that. I'd say we won't go north of 12.

2.) 26 Feb 2018 13:40:19
Scott McDonald, Caldwell, Robson, Hartley, McNamara, Mark Wilson, Stokes, Mulgrew, Agathe etc

all our own youth players are domestic as well.

Paul Lambert was developed at SPL clubs

sure there has been as many failures but you can count as many failures we have signed from foreign leagues also.

If KT goes it will be tough to take but, if it's a BIG if, we spend a chunk of the fee on recruitment it should secure 9 and 10. Losing a left back will not hurt us domestically as much as other positions, he was afterall missing a lot last season. Still a miss though especially in big games.




09 Jul 2019 23:19:07
Anyone know why one of our most expensive signings ever was on the bench and Bitton (who is an average midfielder) was playing in defence? Surely if Julian was fit he should be on and if not why waste a sub?


1.) 09 Jul 2019 23:55:37
I think his fitness still isn't there. I imagine Lennon planned to bring him on before the 2 injuries.

2.) 10 Jul 2019 00:05:15
Lennon says he needs games and will be starting v renne Saturday lads the big centre half will nail his place wanse he gets going bhoys have no qualms about that.

3.) 10 Jul 2019 08:10:14
Biton played well last night.

4.) 10 Jul 2019 10:55:35
Some people overlook to suit their agenda Kev. To put Julian in last night wouldn’t have been the best calls, especially on that pitch when he’s not played any pre season and isn’t near match fitness.



06 Jul 2019 21:47:03
Ntcham is not as good as he thinks he is, last year he was mostly anonymous so good riddance. My reading of the KT situation is he feels that he loves the club more than they love him, I. e. CalMac isn't for sale but KT has his price. For that reason I think he will rightly leave. If club said hands off, he is going nowhere he might be here for 10. Love him to stay but can't see it now.


{Ed007's Note - Let's not blur the lines, it was KT that made it known to the Club after the Scottish Cup Final that if an acceptable offer was made during this window he would be interested in moving on, remember his agent has held talks with Lyon, Arsenal and has supposedly spoken to someone representing Napoli
There's no conspiracy and nobody's forcing anyone to do anything and disappointingly for some there's nobody to blame - KT simply thinks his career will progress better playing elsewhere and the Club have accepted that so IF (note the capitals) a club matches their valuation and KT agrees he will move on, I don't see him leaving for any old EPL club fighting relegation just because they'll pay him £60/70k a week and I'd be surprised if Leicester were appealing.
Btw, contrary to reports elsewhere KT has not recently changed his agent to the same as Rodgers, he joined Stellar Management sometime before Nov 2017 and they negotiated his last contract renewal then - and don't get me started on buy-out & release clauses.}

1.) 06 Jul 2019 22:25:13
2 years ago tierney and robertson were at a similar level quality, progression, performance and profile wise, however liverpool have been excellent as has robertson and now robertson is seen as a level above tierney.

this is the reason he will want the move, tierney has all the qualities to match what robertson and achieve similar in similar environment however injuries and staying at celtic will not get him to that stage so he is quite right to want to move to the EPL if he has asperations of being one of the best full backs in the world which at this time robertson clearly is.

{Ed007's Note - As I said the other day on a thread before the morons killed it, how high will KT's star be in 2 years time? Will staying in Scotland winning 10 in a row attract a Barca or Chelsea or will it be a Southampton, Bournemouth or some other diddy Pub League team where he would need to waste another 2 years like VVD or Wanyama before a big club - and Arsenal are a big club - come calling again.}

2.) 07 Jul 2019 04:49:09
All I can say is good luck to him. He has been a great player for us and if he has decided now is the time to move on, I wish him all the best.

3.) 07 Jul 2019 07:30:20
I hope he progresses to the best of his ability and comes back to Celtic when he 28!
Joking aside look at how Robertson has progressed over the last couple of years, KT (if he goes) will go with my blessing. His love for the club is not in question.

4.) 07 Jul 2019 01:45:02
Good to see you back commenting again Ed.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers mate.}

5.) 07 Jul 2019 01:59:12
Ed007, how are you? . Noticed you have not been on for a while. I'm only on here for your transfer put downs and occasionally baiting the opposition lol. Hope you're well. A lot of people here in Oz grateful for your hesgoals info you gave me for watching the football. Get back to your usual acerbic self😁.

{Ed007's Note - I'm good thanks, Bri 👍

6.) 07 Jul 2019 11:29:26
Can't begrudge the boy a move he has achieved everything he can here. Elsewhere it isn't seen as much of an achievement so he'll want to test himself in a tougher league and prove that he's a player. Everyone has their cycle at a club. It just so happens his is now, at a time where we would do with the cash towards a major rebuild after poor past windows and a lot of players out of contract ect. It's a win win really for both player and club.

7.) 07 Jul 2019 12:06:37
Hope you didn't mean me killing the thread Ed. I came on a wee while after to see if you or anyone had added anything after me and saw it had gone.

{Ed007's Note - It was nothing to do with you mate.}

8.) 07 Jul 2019 21:05:47
I would agree KT needs to move to a level within his grasp. What think would help him get the club he deserves, is if our defence improves even more, then we might not come back from CL games holding our arse. If we do better, he looks better, he gets a better team than feckin. And we get much more money and he’s a legend who stayed for 19iar. I can dream. :)



30 Jun 2019 09:00:34
Man U looking at McGinn, valued at £50m! Aye very good, have they seen his Scotland performances? Crazy prices down there.


1.) 30 Jun 2019 09:28:02
Did you see his performances for Aston Villa
There player of the year last year
Not worth £50 mill.

2.) 30 Jun 2019 09:33:03
I live in Leeds and there saying that there player kalvan Phillips is worth £40 mill unbelievable so if he’s worth £40 and McGinn if worth £50 mill . What is Callum McGregor worth.

3.) 30 Jun 2019 11:03:46
A player is only worth what another side offers and his team accepts.



28 Jun 2019 14:39:23
I can't see why Motherwell rejected the deal we offered. What is the benefit to them, player or us? He needs an Op so will not play for them for around 4-6 months, they need to fund the op and rehab plus pay his wages. Then once he is fit he will surely be subject of bids, either Jan or Summer. Are they doing so to try and get more money (risky) and if not why? Surely the players wish, ambition and bank balance should have been considered. And his state of mind, he must be gutted at a. The news of the injury then b. The deal being off. Common sense has not been shown.


1.) 28 Jun 2019 14:51:12
It's possible a deal may still be agreed before the window closes?
Motherwell went from quids-in - to zilch in a week and will be feeling very disappointed (as will the player) , so as you say, if and when common sense prevails, we may still have a mutual solution.

2.) 28 Jun 2019 16:08:17
It seemed to me they were asking 'well to take all of the risk.

3.) 28 Jun 2019 18:56:56
Motherwell should be taking all the risk, he's there player, they never picked up on the injury or did they know about it n still try to flog him for a record fee!

4.) 28 Jun 2019 18:59:59
Which is what's happening anyway cavalcanti. At least they were guaranteed the full fee if they'd taken our deal and the recovery was a success.

5.) 28 Jun 2019 20:57:55
Turnball will never be seen in a celtic jersey again after the way we have treated the lad and motherwell if we really wanted him deal would have been done we paid double the price for john hartson almost 20 years ago with the same scan results sometimes you have to take a chance hope we don't regret this decision in years to come.

6.) 29 Jun 2019 05:01:26
The way we've treated them? They never exactly treated us with respect did they? Motherwell decided to go public to badger us into signing an injured player, I think they both knew he would fail the medical but if they created a bit of hysteria the deal would have to go through. We've done nothing wrong here.

I also think KT must be keen to move otherwise would say so. Might not see a happy ending to next season under NL or simple ambition to play at a higher level with life changing money, I. e. £80k per week. Be gutted if he goes but thankful for what he gave and wish him every success.

Ntcham nope. Got to earn it and he didn't last year. Same for Shved, big expectations but needs to deliver to replace Forrest. Hope Griff gets back to form and fitness but honestly think he might be more of an impact sub now.

If they get him for £20m it will be a bargain. 2 or 3 good games and MOTD will be saying what a player he is etc and worth £40m - £50m. And btw given what happened with Turnbull it would not surprise me if KT failed a medical also.

It's a total shambles. Why no word from club on what's going on? How long can a medical take?
