Was looking at transfer news in Portugal. This loan deal for Jota looks like it is done or will be done soon. A years loan and medical will be done in Portugal to speed up transfer.

1.) 28 Aug 2021 17:18:06
Paul, would he need to quarantine as well?

2.) 28 Aug 2021 17:21:11
Is there a option to buy within this deal? Don't mind loans as long as we have the option to buy after helping a player improve.

3.) 28 Aug 2021 17:48:13
Nothing to stop us making a bid.

4.) 28 Aug 2021 18:47:14
I would be very happy with this deal, the boy is a very good player and will tear it up here.

5.) 28 Aug 2021 19:39:28
Looks like he oozes confidence. Hopefully his decision making and end product kicks in with us.

6.) 28 Aug 2021 21:52:57
I would say he would have to quarantine alright. At the moment I've only read about a loan deal. But you never know what is going on in negotiations. There a few teams in spain and Italy interested aswel.



16 Aug 2021 13:27:33
Celtic have beaten Southampton to the signature of Liam Scales. A 600k offer has been accepted by Shamrock Rovers and Liam Scales is due for talks with Celtic. This is what I'm hearing.

1.) 16 Aug 2021 14:35:36
Read that earlier paul, is he a left cb who can play lb paul, and is he any good.

{Ed007's Note - Don't you listen to the podcasts? 😁

2.) 16 Aug 2021 15:19:37
Excellent piece of business Celtic; well done.

3.) 16 Aug 2021 15:20:40
Why has he got to wait till the end of the month to join?

4.) 16 Aug 2021 15:37:17
Because Celtic have agreed to let him stay with Shamrock Rovers to help them qualify for group stage of Conference league. He is mostly a left wing back, who can play CB and LB Mally.

5.) 16 Aug 2021 16:02:57
Don't know how Ed HH.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

6.) 16 Aug 2021 16:05:22
Thanks Paul. av listened mate a might have missed that piece tho 🤣👍.

{Ed007's Note - 😁😋

7.) 16 Aug 2021 20:31:02
So if we sign this boy what do yous think will happen with Montgomery? Will he be loaned out or ordrop to the youth setup? The boy is talented and needs game time. Maybe a loan to his if Doig leaves?

8.) 17 Aug 2021 00:04:48
He should be loaned out to a spl club at the least.



03 Aug 2021 21:03:12
An unnamed Premier league team scouted Liam Scales tonight for shamrock Rovers tonight in Champions league game. After their scouts saw him a bid by the Premier league club has being submitted. This is the calibre of the player Celtic could get. And if we have to use DD to get this player then DD get this deal ASAP as other clubs are now on the case.

1.) 03 Aug 2021 21:20:00
Is he a good player Paul?

2.) 03 Aug 2021 21:32:01
Yes Ken, this lad is the hotest talent in the league of Ireland at the moment. His rise to the player hasn't being unnoticed as I said ina previous post Championship teams and Premier teams have been Scouting him for some time. For Celtic to get him now would be a great addition to the squad. But we need to act now as from what I'm hearing in Ireland is there are as many of 5 Premier league teams interested in him.

3.) 03 Aug 2021 21:32:07
He is very highly rated kev and a stand out in the league. The fact a Premier league team have made a bid tells the story.

4.) 03 Aug 2021 21:32:09
Must have came over in their Delorean cause the Shamrock Rovers game is Thursday and it’s a conference league qualifier.

5.) 03 Aug 2021 21:47:26
Nobody scouted Liam Scales tonight. Shamrock Rovers don’t play until Thursday.

6.) 03 Aug 2021 21:50:04
It was last week so TB he was watched my apologies if I got the match day wrong but the bid was made today and I thought match was on today when I was reading up about it.

7.) 03 Aug 2021 22:00:09
Bhoys, I wouldn't be worrying too much about any other side coming in for Liam Scales as DD owns 25% of Shamrock Rovers.

8.) 03 Aug 2021 22:05:36
Got my dates wrong about the match guys, he was actually watched on last Friday against St Patrick's Alectic. And bid came in today. Unfortunately I only follow Cork City and we are league one at the moment. I rang a friend of mine who is big fan of league of Ireland and he said yes Celtic have made a bid but another bid from unnamed Premier league club came in today for. Any more details I get I will post it.

9.) 03 Aug 2021 22:16:51
That's what I'm saying Pedro if DD has to do the deal then do it. But some folks saying then that it's DD signing the player and not Ange. If DD has to do the deal it's good enough for me. I really don't mind who is doing deals at the moment once we get players. I'm hearing it's Ange, DOM with help from DD.

10.) 03 Aug 2021 23:31:06
That makes sense Paul, I doubt Ange or Dom will know players from the Emerald Isle as well as DD.

If the lad is good let's get him signed. I read they're talking about 500K, so the money is not an issue.

11.) 03 Aug 2021 23:54:24
Agree Pedro 100%.

12.) 04 Aug 2021 09:28:08
Would this guy get in our first team.



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.

1.) 06 Apr 2021 21:50:50
No chance, we will be getting Kennedy. : (.

2.) 06 Apr 2021 22:14:21
Keane story just isn't going away LAW. AT this stage it wouldn't surprise me.

3.) 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.

4.) 06 Apr 2021 22:41:26
Very true bestybhoy.

5.) 06 Apr 2021 23:59:10
Oh aye Paul ate u on the whined up lol.

6.) 07 Apr 2021 00:30:06
Guys have some consideration for our my mental health and blood pressure. :P.

7.) 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.

8.) 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.

9.) 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.

10.) 07 Apr 2021 12:38:56
Very true OAB2 👍.

11.) 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.



17 Mar 2021 23:39:57
Apparently Jullian wants to go back to France in the summer. Anyone hear anything about this. I think we should be staying away from french players in the future. There attitude and commitment to clubs has always been hit and miss for me. And will only turn up to play when it suits them. Never like the french football team or rugby because of their attitude. Should we now start to look at different leagues to scout for players. We got some great from France but when they want to up leave that's when they become a problem and it spreads all through the dressing room.

1.) 18 Mar 2021 06:06:54
When you start believing the Re*ord you are in trouble. If you ready what he said, he is not angling for a move.

2.) 18 Mar 2021 08:04:16
Think there was talk of him wanting to leave earlier in the season and to be honest he was becoming more of a 'sick-note' than Simo; so it would probably be better to get-shot and anyway young Welsh has grabbed his opportunity with both hands and with a class partner, who can be relied upon, will only get better.

3.) 18 Mar 2021 08:15:14
Paul, I said the same thing a while ago. The French lads do have a tendency to become very moody. It's not exclusively the French but they do tend to be fairly consistent with that mentality. HH.

4.) 18 Mar 2021 10:17:00
Yeah rumours were rife that he wanted to leave at the beginning of the season. Also some chat around faking a back injury. If he's not 100% committed get rid. Had enough of that this season.

5.) 18 Mar 2021 10:34:41
Ed confirmed he was itching for a move at the start of this season so you'd imagine it'll be a similar scenario this summer unless the new manager really gets him excited.

6.) 18 Mar 2021 11:20:13
U r bang on Paul. The French lads are acting like children. Look at the way eddy and in particular ntcham has behaved was shocking. And before someone comes out with he scored 20 goals and all that the guy attitude stinks! And look at ntcham in France right now. And now jullien thinks is too good for Celtic. I said it on here a while back that the like of ntcham and eddy had downed tools and had no interest in being at Celtic. If we learn nothing else from this year alone it's if a players want to leave then we let them go. Otherwise we will have the same childest actions we have seen this year from certain players. CELTIC IS BIGGER THAN ANY PLAYER!

7.) 18 Mar 2021 13:07:33
If we can recoup £5m for him id move him on. He too injury prone and after showing a lot of early promise has ended up a bit of a flop.

8.) 18 Mar 2021 13:35:04
DK_96, plus the fact that he can't handle being roughed up by big imposing strikers who press him. Lyndon Dykes was just one example, could you imagine him up against the likes of a Hartson or a Sutton? They'd have destroyed him. HH.

9.) 18 Mar 2021 15:12:13
He's quoted today saying he wants to get fit for the new season and win everything with us. I wouldn't trust the Daily Ranger if they told me milk was white.

10.) 18 Mar 2021 15:46:50
You are privileged to play for CELTIC FC. If you make any claims to want away then pi** off. Sell him asap. We can do better.

11.) 18 Mar 2021 16:23:51
When did he say he wanted away? Was that in the Ranger too?

12.) 18 Mar 2021 18:12:03
He is bang average at best and heard there was some toys out the pram and dust up involving Duffy. Another over priced failed NL signing. Get rid.

13.) 18 Mar 2021 18:53:56
This is his quote from the interview, doesn't sound like he wants to leave to me.

“A move to Marseille? I don’t know what the future holds. At the moment I’m at Celtic. I have two years left on my contract and an injury that I have to get out of. I am French, I don’t have to come back to France.

“In January and February we didn’t get good results. It hurt to see that. We had lots of discussions with the coach and the group, from playing in front of a full Celtic Park to closed doors didn’t help. It could have been a historic season, unfortunately we didn’t achieve that.

“Next season we want to win everything. It’s non-negotiable at Celtic. ”.

14.) 19 Mar 2021 09:16:47
He never said he wanted to leave. Just papers stirring rubbish.

15.) 19 Mar 2021 12:16:41
Derk Boerrighter his agent apparently.

16.) 19 Mar 2021 13:00:41
Correct Kev, the disappointing bit for me is the amount of people who believe what is written in these rags.

17.) 19 Mar 2021 18:43:29
Regardless if true or not he isn't good enough, no where near, squad player at best, too good looking doesn't want to spoil his looks, not a CB what so ever.

I hope we get the result required Sunday to stop their undefeated run, however I don't want the board thinking a good victory means we don't invest fully in the squad.

Kyogo hasn't been selected for Japan and will stay with Celtic and continue his rehabilitation and could be back for Motherwell game on the 16th. Just read there.

1.) 28 Sep 2021 18:01:10
Excellent; but I would hope the club makes a stand for other Celtic players who have missed several domestic games, yet are selected for their national squad. Club before country every time IMO.

2.) 28 Sep 2021 18:08:25
Agreed OAB

I understand players wanting to represent their country but the man that pays your wages is the man that gets tae decide where you’re working.

3.) 28 Sep 2021 18:24:58
100% on this point.
I actually think that when a player is already injured (not 'he's carrying a knock') the national team should not be allowed to approach the club.

4.) 28 Sep 2021 20:00:09
Delighted he is staying. Its won't make any sense for him to travel if he is not playing for his club. The club are the ones who pay his wages.



23 Sep 2021 22:25:01
Giakoumakis picked up a Calf injury in the warm up tonight. Chris Sutton just confirmed it.

1.) 23 Sep 2021 22:31:50
Paul, that's quite surprising to hear. We usually sign players who are first team ready! lol
On the plus side Scales didn't let himself down when he came on. He could be a decent signing. Seems quite quick and has a decent touch. I watched him a few times in League of Ireland games and he was always quite solid so the transition to Celtic hasn't really surprised me at all. HH.

2.) 24 Sep 2021 00:34:56
Makes sense why he didn't get a run out then.

3.) 23 Sep 2021 23:06:30
Apparently it was a knee injury and he was sent for a scan?.



09 Sep 2021 18:26:50
Liam Scales said ina interview today his preferred position in Left side in the centre back role because that's the position he has played since he was a boy. The question put to him today was is that his strongest position and Scales replied no, I've no strongest position as I'm comfortable in any position once it's on the left side. I'm used to playing LWB now as I played that role with Shamrock Rovers and like to use my pace on the wing.

1.) 09 Sep 2021 19:49:34
Hope he's the Tierney replacement we've been looking for. Of the highlights I've seen he looks a decent player. If he performs as he's done for Shamrock he'll be a fan favourite and an absolute steal.

2.) 09 Sep 2021 20:31:43
True Pablo.

3.) 09 Sep 2021 21:35:12
His old coach thinks lb is his best position.

Not a problem, glad to be able to give you an insight into Scales. You should listen to tonights Podcast Ep 49, where Mark, Barry and myself talked about new signing and what we can expect from them. Should be a great listen as we did a full player analysis tonight.

I would say he would have to quarantine alright. At the moment I've only read about a loan deal. But you never know what is going on in negotiations. There a few teams in spain and Italy interested aswel.

Because Celtic have agreed to let him stay with Shamrock Rovers to help them qualify for group stage of Conference league. He is mostly a left wing back, who can play CB and LB Mally.

Please only be a rumour. I'm all for Irish lads getting a chance only if they are good enough. Can't see him score the goals we need next season and I've seen a lot of David over the years and it's a straight no for me. Celtic can do a lot better.

Hi Mallythetally67, yes we did say about Reo Hatate, when I was doing up my research on the players for the podcast, every news agency in Japan when I translated their views on all 3 players it seemed everyone was talking about Meada. But not in Japan they were saying wait until we see the speed and skill that Reo Hatate has. We have a gem and star in our hands.

I've read the kennykids Deepriver, there certainly young players that I recognise and Celtic should be looking at the Irish set up more closely IMO. We have some great young talent in our under age group and bring them in now as young lads is a no brainer. But of course we will have Celtic supporters saying they aren't going to be good enough because their playing in the LOI OR their a DD signing and not an Ange signing.

I'm going to do a question and answer in the podcast lads so keep them coming in. I'm keeping note of all of them. I'll be closing it off at 3pm so I can sort things out for the podcast.
