Potentially eddie and christie out of old firm due to C.V.
Ajeti a doubt.

Not great ahead of a must not lose match.


1.) 07 Oct 2020 15:24:00
Both out. I hope we don't get anymore before the SEVCO game.

2.) 07 Oct 2020 15:25:36
Christie to isolate for 14 days from Tuesday after Armstrong tested positive with Scotland.

3.) 07 Oct 2020 15:49:01
Not saying it's the cause; but International football is the last thing that players should be asked to play with so many increased positive tests surfacing by the hour, with high-risk and heightened alerts in so many countries. European ties should also be suspened.
Domestic football was hard enough to 'police' and contain without large groups moving around in confined spaces and travelling.

4.) 07 Oct 2020 16:36:16
Christie got it through contact with Armstrong, international football should be cancelled for now, its taking players out of there club bubble and mixing it will never end well, celtic should call all there players back! Apart from duffy we need him for tomorrow 😜.

5.) 07 Oct 2020 17:36:09
Taylor and Calmac should be withdrawn from the squad immediately before they are infected as well .

6.) 07 Oct 2020 18:30:21
don't understand why a negative test doesn't give christie the all clear.

7.) 07 Oct 2020 18:46:53
Call me cynical but I wonder if the Rangers will mpanage to get there full strength first 11 available for the game next weekend and then 3 or 4 just happen to test positive just after.

8.) 07 Oct 2020 18:48:47
Liam because u can have it and it doesn’t show so u can still affect others . All this for the common flu absolute bloody joke .

9.) 07 Oct 2020 18:57:24
yeah i know that duff and phelps but I'm talking about a week or so down the line.

10.) 07 Oct 2020 19:41:48
Eddy will be at the very least on the bench.

11.) 07 Oct 2020 21:25:44
@Jonbhoy The results are provided by an independent body, not the club. Unless their tests are being verified at the local masonic I reckon it's all fairly above board.

12.) 07 Oct 2020 22:28:55
If you have problems arising in various domestic arenas, why on earth would you even think of pulling players together from said areas 😳 If FIFA were concerned about anyone but themselves, internationals should be the first thing stopped but this ****in leach of an organisation puts itself above the survival of what it actually feeds of of 🤬.

13.) 08 Oct 2020 07:34:06
Christie hasn't "got it". He's been identified as a close contact with Armstrong who is positive. Ryan is contesting this.

14.) 08 Oct 2020 08:02:51
Duff a phelps. It's not the common flu. Flu has a vaccine C.V. doesnt.

15.) 09 Oct 2020 14:17:38
If Edouard is on the bench he would need to wear a mask. If he goes on as a sub he would need to nip down to the dressing room and wash his hands for 20 seconds with soap and hot water.

16.) 10 Oct 2020 17:05:47
Stengo that should be protocol every time rangers are in town the dirty knackers bacteria everywhere from that lot .

17.) 11 Oct 2020 10:17:33
Don’t understand why people are blaming international football for these players catching Corona. The virus has a 10-14 day incubation period so Bitton, and Eddy for that matter, would have had the virus prior to leaving for international duty.

The real question to me is why are the Celtic players who have been in close contact with eddy and Bitton not had to isolate? Christie and Tierney having to isolate because they were in close contact with Armstrong makes sense. Why other players who have been playing with Bitton and Eddy aren’t having to, baffles me.

18.) 11 Oct 2020 22:47:28
MGC19,I am not an expert, maybe you are, in fact I don't really know what I am talking about, please correct me if anything I now write is wrong, .
The way I understand it you get infected with this virus, it gets into your upper airways and lower airways, your eyes, into your mucous membranes, and then it goes to work on you .
The incubation period, from what I have read is five to seven days, but if you get tested a day or two after you have a load of virus into your nose, because sometimes the virus just gives you an upper respiratory tract C.V. and nothing more, will you test positive?, in any case they, the medical experts, that is, know so little about this virus, that the incubation period in some individuals might even be less than 5 or 7 days, and in that case I would blame these current international matches for international players testing positive.

Have said this a few times in the past but Julien doesn't do it for me.

Came in and i thought he looked very shakey, then had a great game against rangers and rightly so was praised to the heavens for it and made out to be a godly defender.

Since then he's slipped back to mediocrity and for me looks a poor £7m spent, i highly doubt we will return anywhere near that when we move him on.

We need to be realistic about Ajer, good young player and we should keep but if he wants to go how does this effect our price tag, reckon we will be lucky for £15m.

Ntcham can't get into our side half the time so why would English clubs break the bank for him. I think he's a top player but from their perspective you can see why they would have doubts.

Now it looks like Eddie will also be away with his Agent noising up about a move, our side could very soon look a shadow of last seasons with our boards signings looking like projects rather than finished articles.

On top of this a manager who is stubborn and clearly doesn't fancy many of the signings. aswell as his inability to drop brown or christie from the side.


1.) 28 Aug 2020 11:55:26
Have to disagree with you about most of that.

Why would you drop your captain (Brown) and one of your top performers (Christie) ?

Also, I rate Julien highly, yes he has the odd shocker but on the most part is a good defender, brilliant passer and goal threat from set pieces.

2.) 28 Aug 2020 12:30:30
Jullien needs a commanding, experienced partner in beside him.

3.) 28 Aug 2020 12:37:00
You've summed it up perfectly, 'Why would you drop your captain'?, . Years ago, I think, the captain was just a go between the manager and the players, now the captain is undroppable, you need someone on the field that can fire the players up, but the manager should have the most of the motivating done all ready, maybe Lennon is relying on Brown too much, to be his commander on the field, and even when Brown is holding the team back in a playing sense, Lenny still thinks he needs him there in a captains role, the captains role shouldn't be so important, there should be 11 captains on the field, all trying to achieve the same thing, all striving for the same goal.

4.) 28 Aug 2020 12:40:04
how is he being stubborn by not playing players that he doesn't fancy that doesn't make sense.

5.) 28 Aug 2020 13:01:49
but there isn't aindoh that's that thing. right now especially with the last few days scott brown is most important man at celtic right now.

6.) 28 Aug 2020 15:49:32
Hes being stubborn by leaving players we have spent good money on out of the side, playing players out of position out of spite.
Julien has his moments of looking a rock and is great at attacking set peices. There is a reason he was playing for the side 3rd bottom of ligue 1 though and i think he gets shown up more often than he plays well.
Brown still has a big role to play but shouldn't be undroppable.



25 Aug 2020 11:22:36
Do we think Eddie will stay beyond the end of the window?
I for one think he will be around for the UCL Qualifiers, after that i can't see the club not selling him as we will take a massive hit in the transfer fee if we wait till end of the season.
Looks like Villa's interest is pretty serious.


1.) 25 Aug 2020 11:30:36
If wee don’t make champions league I fear he could be off edouard .

2.) 25 Aug 2020 11:37:32
If he was staying I think an extension would have been announced. If Villa are offering silly money then he'll be away.

3.) 25 Aug 2020 12:35:34
According to reports we have agreed a £7.2m fee for a striker from the Turkish league. If true then yes Edouard will be sold.

4.) 25 Aug 2020 12:39:16
Celtic will do what we always do.
If we don’t qualify for the CL group stages.
We will sell a player who is at peak value.
Edouard could be that player because he has only 2 years left on his contract.
If he doesn’t sign an extension and plays the 2020/ 21 season with Celtic, his value will drop going into his final season.
This business plan has worked well for Celtic over the years which has kept a gap between ourselves and our competitors.

5.) 25 Aug 2020 12:46:20
Trabzonspor have come out and rubbishd it the player is going no where .

6.) 25 Aug 2020 12:49:10
I think Édouard will stay and ajer will be sold.

7.) 25 Aug 2020 13:13:12
There is not as much speculation over Ajer or Ntcham; whereas the Eddy stories are being pushed into overdrive - as you would expect from our 'media mates'. I still think we will do as we have done for the last few years and sell-big in the summer and Eddy is BIG.
As long as we get the quality in the door for the other positions we urgently need and replace Eddy if and when - then we will be fine.

8.) 25 Aug 2020 20:26:01
Hope Ajer is sold and not Edouard.

9.) 25 Aug 2020 20:28:52
I think we will get

UcL qualification and new contract
He will see out 10iar

He will go next year . but may have 2 to 3 suitors at christmas that he actually wants to move to

This is the issue. he wants to go to the RIGHT club and is happy enough and young enough to continue to develop and enjoy his time at Celtic

The new contract will be all about release clauses and " nominated clubs by his agents" giving eddy the option


He's happy
He wants to move to a bigger club

He needs another crack at UCL or Europa to demonstrate full talent

Celtic confident that a new contract will ensue

This will ALL CHANGE if we get put out of europe .

I still think he will go to Italy or france incidentally . eventually.



10 Aug 2020 10:52:27
Worries me how exposed our CB's look when they play in a 4.
I remember paul merson saying on sky a while back about CB's only looking good in a 3 shows that they aren't good enough defenders. Is that what we are seeing with Julien and Ajer?
Cant see us spending in these positions again unless Ajer was to move on for a good fee.
When teams try to mark Eddie out the game we struggle for a threat and i think it will continue away from home this season.


1.) 10 Aug 2020 12:05:43
We definitely need a decent CB, a striker that can hold ball up to link up with eddy and if teams are going to defend deep as Kilmarnock and a midfielder who can score long range shots.

2.) 10 Aug 2020 15:46:56
Don't the lads train on artificial pitches at Lennoxtown? There shouldn't be an excuse in my eyes, I would've played the likes of dembele, these youth players have played constantly on artificial surfaces and I think their pace and trickery would work against teams like Kilmarnock.
As for the 2 at the back you let a ball bounce instead of heading it and your putting a target on your own back, that is as simple as it gets.
Time after time Ajer was having problems, which he needs to get sorted soon, otherwise chuck him in at CDM where he naturally should play.

for me i don't think we can have to many complaints if he is sited. Whether we like it or not he was lucky to not be cautioned for it on sunday, and mcgregor also lucky to not see red and be banned.

He will end up at rangers i think.

Spent his career on loan and broke into their side a couple of years ago. Steady enough player but noone near the quality we should be looking at.

Dont think his agent said anything about the 10. The 10 probably means nothing to eddie.
He will be away this window mark my words. The club will recieve a good fee tho and we must activly try to find replacement.

Marco, Toney looked like our first choice, this is the deal because we didn't get toney.
Would worry if we still look for toney as that all but spells the end for ed.

Scott B lucky to stay on pitch also with a stupid elbow. This kind of stuff will cost us this year.

no way will their manager tell them it will be an easier game who u kidding.
I'm worried about the weekend without our star men.

Would happily take a point now.

Think both sides would be happy with a point. Its more of a must not lose for both teams.

enough of the coinpsiracy, the other lot had a spell of away games last month.
Tough fixtures ahead made up by the fact our december is easy.

Worrying tho as if we struggle in some of the tough away games and were to lose the OF we could be a fair bit behind them before the xmas period.

Would bite the hand off if we got that, however its easy the club saying that's what we want. not always what we will get as noone offering that.
