Elyounoussi on loan. Stv reporting.


1.) 30 Aug 2019 20:57:43
Brill. Get him back and track and we'll have a real good player. Let's hope we don't end up with Kazim-Richards this time again.



29 Aug 2019 11:37:56
Reports in Romania we are about to sign Omrani from Cluj.


1.) 29 Aug 2019 11:51:15
That rumour was circling a few weeks back as well.

2.) 29 Aug 2019 12:04:52
I like him he’s a handful didn’t expect a striker I thought Griffiths bayo eddy was enough and If all three were injured or suspended Sinclair or Forrest could play there for a game or two but chances of our three strikers being out is slim so this does come as a surprise but I’ll take that more quality the better and I do think he’s got quality imo

Do we need Diabate? Winger we have Forrest shved Johnstone Sinclair heyes Morgan so not really

Left back yes definitely Melling or Taylor

Anyone else? I thought about a cdm but eboue must be around ready he was out a whole season injured but back in training 4 weeks ago he’s got the markings of what we need athletic strong fast and strong in the tackle and young but abit rough around the edges but that was half a year ago he’s bound to of polished up since then I think this year he might surprise a few if given the chance

Cb jullian ajar simonovic biton and Elhamed if Bauer is number 1 right back so I think we are covered here?

3.) 29 Aug 2019 12:28:27
Not sure a striker is needed but it's a long season and gives you options and rotation.

4.) 29 Aug 2019 12:31:45

Think Griffiths is finished in a Celtic top. Just my opinion.

5.) 29 Aug 2019 12:33:57
Evening Tims now saying it is happening in the next 48hrs (Y)

6.) 29 Aug 2019 13:14:01
Not particularly impressed with Omrani, over the 2 legs all he did was dive at every challenge and the goals he scored was hardly well crafted goals. We don't need Diabate either he's predominantly a RW and Forrest and Shved should be enough on the right.

7.) 29 Aug 2019 13:31:34
He played on the left against us so comfortable in both positions. He’s also 6 ft 2. Got a feeling this is Lenny trying to sign his new Samaras.

8.) 29 Aug 2019 13:39:12
Being reported that Celtic have rubbishd it.



21 Aug 2019 14:28:43
Lennon says we are still trying to sign 3/ 4 player's. Been saying that from day 1 of the transfer window.


1.) 21 Aug 2019 14:49:37
I think the player's he maybe referring to is for his console.

2.) 21 Aug 2019 14:54:30
Lennon talks crap. We won't be signing anyone else what's happened to Tierney replacement that we had lined up incase he left. V nothing as lennon talks mince.

3.) 21 Aug 2019 14:56:36
Wish he’d just shut the hell up! Sick of listening to it! See el hamed out tomorrow, we should be fine with our back up right back! Aww that’s right we’ve not got one!

4.) 21 Aug 2019 15:36:20
Give the guy a break the guys telling us he wants players brought in, but it's outwith his control if he gets them but all he can do is state he wants players like the fans also want.

5.) 21 Aug 2019 16:13:50
If he didn't comment fans would go mental tae.

6.) 21 Aug 2019 16:42:09
Mental how hysterical our fans are the now.
Cluj result was a disaster but if we can somehow rectify it with some quality signings and maybe have a right good go in Europa then it could go a long way to restoring some pride.
And can anyone honestly tell me half the teams we beat on the road to any league cup final before u start with how poor we were against Dunfermline?
Chill out guys, put the pitchforks to the side until after the transfer window 😅.

7.) 21 Aug 2019 17:16:56
Lenny has constantly came out and said we would have players before the next round. He has done that everytime the deadline has came and gone and still nothing. He is nothing more than a puppet. Who doesn't see he is getting played. All and celtic have to do us be honest with us instead of making us look like mugs. Come out and be honest with the fans. Tell us they are cost cutting and we will be selling our best players as PL needs his 3.4million bonus.

8.) 21 Aug 2019 17:47:23
Kev to be honest I just wish he would keep his mouth shut! Does nothing but piss us all off when we inevitably don’t sign anyone! 4 weeks ago was our last signing! None for the cluj game were we got papped out and none for tie to play in the EL! Keep your mouth shut about signings because none of us believe the crap anymore!



09 Aug 2019 20:06:41
Rumour the Turnbull deal back on.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 20:26:58
Hope so. Given Arsenal signed KT for £25m and he is recuperating from Op surely we can risk £3m of the £25m on Turnbull if Op was a success as reported.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 20:45:54
Surely not?

3.) 09 Aug 2019 21:01:24
Dra funny you should mention that because I was in airbles road round corner from Motherwell stadium today seeing a old work mate.
I actually seen him and he's still on crutches.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 21:41:45
I've had a sneaky suspicion all along this might happen with Turnbull. HH.

5.) 09 Aug 2019 22:10:50
We know he's got the ability, we've seen him at close quarters and are obviously very keen to sign him. We take £3m gambles on the likes of boli so why not take the gamble on his fitness. Its hardly going to burst the bank.

6.) 09 Aug 2019 22:46:38
Still in crunches definitely a Jan signing then.

7.) 09 Aug 2019 23:23:17
I think Celtic might take him on crutches at this point in the window. Its not been a disaster, yet, but it would go some ways to winning over certain critics and criticisms.

8.) 10 Aug 2019 06:21:26
He's 19 he'll heal quick and he'll still have the ability that attracted us in the first place.

9.) 10 Aug 2019 09:37:39
Forget Turnbull there are more pressing areas to be addressed just now.

10.) 10 Aug 2019 11:43:55
Don’t think I’ve ever seen someone pass a medical and have his photo shoot with a new kit on all in crutches . Be madness if true, we all know Lennie won’t get loads to spend, to use some of it on an injured player is beyond ridiculous.

11.) 10 Aug 2019 22:55:22
He is definitely still on crutches . Seen him on Wednesday afternoon in wishaw main street . Not putting any weight on his leg at all .



26 Jul 2019 14:13:42
Eboue Kouassi could be set to leave Celtic with Panathinaikos reportedly interested according to press in Grece.


1.) 26 Jul 2019 14:35:34
Shame, thought the boy had something about him and could have been a good player.
Never got a chance because of injuries.

2.) 26 Jul 2019 14:57:38
He has a contact until 2021 (? ) so if he is a success our on loan we would surely give him another crack here.

3.) 26 Jul 2019 20:16:09
Hopefully, no harm to the boy but if he can’t break into the team in the length of time he’s been here (keep the injury rubbish out of it, and even if it is? It’s still time to go) , then it’s best he moves on, hope it it happens and not just gossip.
More to follow 🙏🏼 Deadwood that should have been moved on + 1 or 2 that can add to the funds, just not Sinclair he’s not done just yet
Far too big of a group, it’s real life no fifa life.

4.) 26 Jul 2019 22:28:39
With that view we’d have lost Christie 😳.

5.) 27 Jul 2019 10:27:35
The kouassie deal is a perm not loan.

6.) 27 Jul 2019 14:21:28
What is illness rubbish and why can we ignore it with some and not others.

More Hibs Cemi-final tickets released. HCTS or any season book holder that bought tickets for both cup games at home. HH.




17 Oct 2019 18:33:53
£12000 Euro fine for pyro display. Credit to the young team. No Pyro No Party

Bank Balance CSC will be in meltdown. HH.


{Ed007's Note - But... but stadium closures... 😂😂😂😂

1.) 17 Oct 2019 21:09:27
Glad you think it’s funny, disrespecting the club you purport to support! We go to watch the team on the park; not some wee fannies’ Arsenal!

{Ed007's Note - 😂😂😂😂😂😂 If that's the predictive text you get I dread to think what you're internet history's like. You don't need to watch the pyro btw, you could cover your eyes, pull a hat over your face or turn your back as a staunch show of defiance.}

2.) 17 Oct 2019 23:02:02

3.) 18 Oct 2019 08:10:26
The display looks great but they're banned so why keep doing it.

4.) 18 Oct 2019 11:23:20
Hate all this panty wetting about pyro! Brings a great atmosphere, more than you sitting on your hands no cheering like 90% of the stadium! Bet you’d rather we had closures due to racist chanting like some mobs!

5.) 18 Oct 2019 15:38:59
Bringing Pyro to the ground is not supporting Celtic.
Buying a £35 ticket that costs the club £12,000 is not supporting Celtic. People that bring in flares are no better than the knuckle draggers that wreck our toilets.

6.) 18 Oct 2019 17:07:57
That’s ma favourite yet 🙈😂.

{Ed007's Note - 😂😂😂😂😂



16 Oct 2019 14:38:04
Nick Hammond full time scout just announced.



{Ed007's Note - Hammond has been appointed Head of Football Operations and there's a lot more involved in his job than scouting players, he's the scout's and the entire footballing department's new boss.}

1.) 16 Oct 2019 14:55:23
Scouting player's is what he will be judged on.

{Ed007's Note - Only by idiots.}

2.) 16 Oct 2019 15:04:39
Read the job the new zombie boy done at Southampton. Restructured the entire youth set up ECT. All there fans comments on social media yesterday was the poor signings. He will be judged on signings. You saying they are idiots won't change the fact.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah there's plenty of idiots out there that don't have a clue about how a football club is structured and run behind the scenes.
In fact I'm not going to waste my time, ask the expert TRIFC fans on social media, start with why they have different job titles and what those jobs entail.}

3.) 16 Oct 2019 15:41:49
Just aswell your here to inform all the idiots. The world is a safer place now 👍👍👍.

{Ed007's Note - We all have our crosses to bear and it's hard enough to do without you expecting me to keep the world safe on top of everything else.}

4.) 16 Oct 2019 16:01:57

{Ed007's Note - 😁

5.) 16 Oct 2019 16:46:41
Fae what I am hearing he's been tasked with stripping down and completely rebuilding the scouting department. They let Rodgers man do it and it was a complete disaster in the boards eyes and they want it fixed.
Obviously he's got a lot more to do than just scouting but that's to be one of his priorities.
I like what I've read and heard about him so fingers crossed.

{Ed007's Note - He's in charge of the scouting department amongst others, he won't do much scouting, Kev, that's what scouts are for. Congerton was a Head of Recruitment which is a different job altogether, Hammond is the closest we'll get to a DOF while Lawwell is around. All the academy staff, the sports science, medical & performance analysis teams etc are all under his control and even the first team coaches including Lennon to a certain extent will follow his plans behind the scenes.}

6.) 16 Oct 2019 17:07:45
Ye get that ed but I've heard we are down to something like 5 scouts.
2 England
2 in europe
1 in America at moment.
Seems full system is getting overhauled and quite a few new scouts for other continents being brought in.
Seems Rodgers and co decimated it.

{Ed007's Note - I'm sure Man Utd only have 6 full time scouts, Kev. Why the Hell do we have a full-time scout in the US, that's just plain crazy.}

7.) 16 Oct 2019 17:36:01
Early days to say but it's certainly the sort of role I wanted us to get somebody in so fingers crossed it pays off. Yes, when judging our recruitment, a lot will fall at NH's door step. But the big question regarding that is how much clout will he have? I'd suspect PL will still be the decisive figure there. What sort of stuff have you read about him Kev? I haven't seen much myself.

8.) 16 Oct 2019 22:41:26
Heard something about it being a mess a while back jim but guy comes in my work was talking about it last week.
Sure he said America ed.
He said we are looking to get more scouts out.
You'd think man Utd would have more than the eh?

{Ed007's Note - Not really Kev, Liverpool and Man City have about the same number of scouts that are employees. A lot of clubs use freelance scouts or the contacts of their employed scouts to do basic scouting and recommend players.}



07 Oct 2019 12:56:30
Convince me Neil Lennon is a good manager. Would love Neil to be the man to guide us to ten. After the bigoted pish he's been through.
If you don't want Lennon as manager you get called a "Neil Lennon hater". Personally love Lennon but don't rate him as manager.

Convince me!


1.) 07 Oct 2019 13:30:10
We wouldn't be going for 9 in a row if it wasn't for Lennon Dra.

2.) 07 Oct 2019 13:46:22
It’s funny how DRA appears after a Celtic loos to spread the fear? As was commented on Lennon has already played a massive part in the push for 10 in a row. it’s not a gimme as sir Walter of the cardigan proved even with all his side of mega stars that they couldn’t afford? So don’t come on here spouting anti Celtic crap looking for a bite? As the players are saying we press the reset button and start again we aren’t a bad side in 1 week. so dry yer eyes! 😂🍀🏆🏆🏆.

3.) 07 Oct 2019 13:58:51
Convince me his is'nt? Convince me!

4.) 07 Oct 2019 14:06:42
The teams that played against hibs and livi were good enough to win both games at a canter.
The players got all the praise for Thursday's win but lennon gets it when it goes pete tong.
Btw am not saying lennon is a top manager but the criticism is not balanced.
Christie challenge was ridiculous.
Eddy was anonymous.
Forrest went missing.
Boli was poor.
Ajers defending is getting worse.
Jullien got got up in the nonsense.
Brown is struggling with 2 games a week.
We had great window but I think we missed out with not getting a midfielder.
Yes lennon makes mistakes but it's two easy for fans who didn't want him to blame him for everything.

5.) 07 Oct 2019 14:24:11
A Glasgow green

Yes we would. We won leagues with Delia

Big p

I'm on forum all the time and comment about what ever is getting debated. You can call me whatever you want. It's a simple question if you can't answer fair enough. Home and Away from 88 and opinionated deal with it.

Fair enough question goes both ways. He won trophies at us first time round when the Scottish game was very weak. Not Celtic's fault he left and went into management without the big budget advantage. Disaster at Bolton got punted. Moved to Hibs started well got them out championship (his level) . Premier league mixed bag ended leaving under a cloud with Hibs 8th. Nothing away from Celtic suggests he's a good manager

Jungle John
The manager is watching all that. It's his job to counteract these problems. Tactics isn't his strong point.

6.) 07 Oct 2019 14:27:57
Can't argue with any of that JJ.

7.) 07 Oct 2019 15:05:58
DRA you can talk all day about tactics. But the last 2 games, man for man, in every position on the park we had the better players.
You could be the best manager with the best tactics but if the players are off it then tactics are out the window.

8.) 07 Oct 2019 15:18:23
DRA I think you will find it was Lennon who started this run of league championship's off.

9.) 07 Oct 2019 16:49:32
100% sometimes you get the feeling they think they just have to turn up. Scottish football is about fighting to own the pitch.

Delia added title's as well doesn't make them good managers.

10.) 07 Oct 2019 17:11:12
agreed glasgow green.
lennon did start all this, they forget this, seem to think im a lennon lover but as i said in earlier posts there swooning over rodgers gets me. he dumped us shat on on nearly fuxxxx us over.
i support every manager Celtic employ that's it but when our manager gets ripped apart i say a lot lols,
its the same few posters everytime. some times i take the bate sometimes i dont.
we have a gd team but it did not click sunday.

11.) 07 Oct 2019 18:05:24

What has the rat got to do with lennons ability. Makes zero sense both walked out on Celtic.

12.) 07 Oct 2019 18:45:48
DRA Neil Lennon's first 4yrs as manager of Celtic read as : 3 championships, 2 Scottish cups, group stage of the champions League twice and only 1 defeat in 38 games in 2014 season, I suppose that still says he's not a good manager, maybe you should apply for the job.

13.) 07 Oct 2019 18:59:08
Oh I forgot: 3rd highest win ratio of any Celtic manager.

14.) 07 Oct 2019 20:08:01
A. G G
All without the zombies in the league. Not his fault he won't last 4yrs this time to compare stats.

15.) 07 Oct 2019 20:12:54
Yeah I remember his Hampden win ratio.

16.) 07 Oct 2019 21:10:19
Ok DRA I give up, I think if Lennon won the CL you would still not rate him as a manager.

17.) 07 Oct 2019 22:00:43
He could sleep with my wife if he does that 😉😉😉😉.

18.) 08 Oct 2019 00:03:16
Lennon has always made us competitive in European competitions and his win rate as manager here is up there I believe. Many good managers go elsewhere and do nothing. He took Hibs and made them a good footballing team, look at them now. Bolton Houdini would have struggled there. So I don't see how you can say he isn't a good manager. Im sure if you told me who you rate they will still have failure on their CV. I was disappointed in Lennon's appointment but have to give him credit he has won me over in a short space of time and I like the direction and way we are playing. Everyone has off days, don't see why people need to overreact and get personal. Just get behind the team, we have had it all our own way and now we need to show some mettle and knuckle down. This season could be the making of a very very good side. They won't win every game! Regardless I won't try to convince you of anything you don't want. You have your views and so do I. Irrelevant what we think he is the manager of our great club so let's just stop being over critical and get behind what he is trying to achieve, which is the same thing we all want.

19.) 08 Oct 2019 07:20:14
Agree he's our manager and when at the games. It's 100% support for all things Celtic. This is social media there is 10's thousands Celtic fans making comments about Celtic. Some positive, some negative it won't make a blind bit difference when Ross county roll into town.

People over react to random comments online. I've watched worse managers Barnes, Mowbray and still gone to watch the Hoops. Time will tell on Lennon, but the fans that think we just need to turn up and win are in for a big shock. We have a challenge on for the league. HH.

04 Oct 2019 09:46:02
2nd highest attendance in Europa league last night. 56000 just behind Arsenal superb from the support.
Great result fast excellent football. Christie was immense. See what happens when you play best players in postion ( couldn't have it all positive 😉😉😉)
Who was your MOTM?


1.) 04 Oct 2019 09:57:53
Boli boli for me we looked like scoring everytime he got the ball.
Lenny has learned that's because he reads this forum yourself me ED OBVIOUSLY. And the rest of the lads on here gave gd positive advice 🤔🤔😜.

{Ed007's Note - I predicted both the team AND the result 😁😋

2.) 04 Oct 2019 10:21:19
The players look a lot more confident playing in Europe this season.
I can't criticise the improvements we made under Brendan Rodgers but when we played against European teams we didn't look to have much self belief.
This season we have competed well against AIK and Rennes away from home, I feel last season we would have lost those games.
Living in England, the media only want to talk about Celtic when we lose a match, the longer they ignore us the happier I will be.

3.) 04 Oct 2019 10:21:58
Hope you had a few £££ on that Ed 😉😉👍.

{Ed007's Note - Nah Peter, I didn't.}

4.) 04 Oct 2019 10:57:04
My MOTM last night was the Boli green giant.

5.) 04 Oct 2019 10:57:09
Who was it that use to do players ratings on here. Use to enjoy that.

{Ed007's Note - I think that might have been me 🤔

6.) 04 Oct 2019 15:17:19
I like to do it every now and then but it's epic typing it out.

7.) 04 Oct 2019 13:54:29
Start it back up. Always thought it was fairly accurate. Good for debating.

{Ed007's Note - I'll see if Ed033 still has the code for it.}
