Seen Peter Lawwell boarding a plane to London this morning. Hopefully down to conclude a deal or two.


1.) 10 Jul 2019 12:13:01
KT? 😂.



04 Jul 2019 15:17:48
The Stacey deal will not be happening PL will not get into a bidding war. Two new options at right back. Ronael Gabrielle from Mainz and Colin Dagba on loan from PSG. Mctominey from Man U is still being looked at.


1.) 04 Jul 2019 16:51:21
Dont know the lad from Mainz at all but I'd be cool with the other 2 no problem 👍.

2.) 04 Jul 2019 18:51:11
With Boli in and Perraud maybe in, is Tierney our new right back.

3.) 04 Jul 2019 19:13:21
Gabrielle just signed for Mainz for 5.5m so how will we sign him exactly?

4.) 04 Jul 2019 19:14:59
A but gutted if this is true .
Had a look at his stats and watched a few clips, looks like he could of been a cracking player for us!

5.) 04 Jul 2019 19:18:05
No chance will it be the lad from Mainz, he’s just signed for them from Monaco.

6.) 04 Jul 2019 20:18:34
What happened to Peter Ankersen the Danish right back?
He would have been a good replacement for Lustig .

7.) 04 Jul 2019 22:33:32
Read a few places that our interest cooled on Peter ankersen drewzy.

8.) 04 Jul 2019 23:42:45

When you say there’s 2 new options at right back is this just from your own extensive scouting network or are they on the lips of celtics scouting team?

9.) 05 Jul 2019 09:38:22
If young Stacey has the chance to go to the EPL, even if it’s a team from a place where old Brexiteer go to die, then he’s out of the equation, which is a pity. There are plenty of quality rbs out there and it seems someone has dropped an acid into Lawells tea, so we might step up and actually spend a few bob on one.

10.) 05 Jul 2019 12:02:00
Tierney is never a right back can only use his right foot for standing. Different with Danny McGrain he could confidently use both feet, unfortunately Tierney can't.

11.) 05 Jul 2019 16:33:01
That's not actually true weemarty.
When Mcgrain started getting played on the wrong side he couldn't get a good cross or tackle in.
He went and done extra training with a Celtic coach to work out why.
Took him weeks to figure it out.
I seen him talk about it in an interview.

12.) 06 Jul 2019 12:45:54
As good as he is, KT no matter how much he progresses will never be as good as McGrain. Danny is the best LB we have ever had and sadly, probably will ever have had. He was beyond brilliant.



02 Jul 2019 13:33:05
Gents, just passing on what I have heard.
Mbombo to sign within the next 4 to 5 days. Right back will be either Perraud or O' Donnell both being seriously looked at. Don't rule big Benko out for another loan and the Hail Mary attempt, Jesé on loan from PSG.


1.) 02 Jul 2019 13:43:16
Think we need Perraud and O’donnell tbh Ralston hasn’t shown me he’s ready to make Rb his own long or short term. Benkovic is class would have him back but he’s not want to sit on the bench unless they move Ajer into browns role if Julien and Benkovic play together at back. Jesé is at a crossroads not performed last few loans he’s been on but worth a punt.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 13:47:34
Perraud not a Left Back?

3.) 02 Jul 2019 14:55:29
Daryl my mistake also that mbolo is aswell if there both being mentioned Tierney must be a done deal heard as much but wether it’s true or not is another story, lol still need another right back then Along with O’donnell.

4.) 02 Jul 2019 15:19:02
Perraud is a left back.

5.) 02 Jul 2019 15:32:53
As it stands, if we get Mbombo then he's KT's back up which is decent cover. If KT goes then I can see us going for Perraud as numero uno.

6.) 02 Jul 2019 17:18:02
Can’t see us buying two left backs gutman looks good and deserves a chance he has early return on loan clause and if tierney leaves I expect that he will return, Perraud isn’t any better than Mbombo if anything Mbombo is rated higher.

7.) 02 Jul 2019 17:44:39
Had word that the Boli deal has now been completed.

8.) 02 Jul 2019 17:47:11
Stephen O’Donnell is not good enough in my opinion and neither is young Ralston, neither are anywhere near the level that Lustig was for us and we should be looking for better .

9.) 02 Jul 2019 18:19:20
The Adam Matthews rumours just won't go away either. Surely him and Jenkinson should be nowhere near the team they aren't anywhere near good enough and we'll only have 2 cabbages on the books we can't get rid of, wasting wages! Money needs spent here as it's been our Achilles heel for a few seasons now. How can we go from offering £8m for Castagne to apparently wanting to sign up pish like Matthews and Jenkinson.

10.) 02 Jul 2019 18:28:28
Tomas Foket or Hamari Traore or kelvin Adou any of that 3 right backs would do me.

11.) 02 Jul 2019 21:16:54
If Tierney going, can we not go back for Castagne?
Money will be there.
I know Juventus looking at him but have a go.



23 Jun 2019 14:05:53
Big McKenna wants the Celtic move and his agent is in talks. 8 million is the magic number.


1.) 23 Jun 2019 14:40:31
Am no going to go against your knowledge Dafabet after Turnbull news.

2.) 23 Jun 2019 14:53:28
There must be around 4000 better centre halves in world football you can buy for £8m.

3.) 23 Jun 2019 15:20:32
Cheers Rich T, there is a very real chance this deal could happen. Personally, I wouldn’t pay 8 million for him, I just don’t see that good a player when I watch him.

4.) 23 Jun 2019 15:45:12
It does seem steep but then he is like their teirney, and they're quite right to be wanting top dollar for him.

5.) 23 Jun 2019 16:07:10
Dafabet what about the French CH any word on him?

6.) 23 Jun 2019 16:16:06
They can demand what they like. Personally I wouldn't buy him for any figure. I'd rather play Ajer and Simunovic. If w get a CB in then it needs to be an improvement on what we already have.

7.) 23 Jun 2019 16:15:40
Ed 007!skinnybhoy has hacked dafabets account. Tell him to stop telling lies!

8.) 23 Jun 2019 16:42:38
Phil, I only pass on the bits I get. Everyone including the press was saying the turnbull deal was dead. I posted it was still very much on.

9.) 23 Jun 2019 16:43:07
Ritch, not heard much on the French boy.

10.) 23 Jun 2019 17:06:00
I'm beginning to think Tierney is away this window. Not much has been said from club to say otherwise. If he does go I hope club pushes boat out and uses funds to bring a rock solid CB in, obviously a good LB to replace Tierney, Ankersen RB and if rumours are true bergovic GK.

A striker in on loan to give Bayo a chance to show what he can do and we are laughing.

11.) 23 Jun 2019 18:12:13
If KT is sold and we are looking at the quality of McKenna for CB, you can say goodbye to the 9 IAR and also any chance of us getting to the CL group stage.

12.) 23 Jun 2019 18:19:58
I know dafa. I'm just hoping your very wrong on this one.

13.) 23 Jun 2019 18:21:50
It’s no a magic number if all you’re getting for it is McKenna.

14.) 23 Jun 2019 19:31:34
Johnbhoy, KT is definitely going if our valuation is met. The supposed figure is 25 million.

15.) 23 Jun 2019 21:42:12
One thing that is definite, is that nobody knows what is definite when it comes to transfer speculation.

16.) 23 Jun 2019 21:51:22
The problem with McKenna is that when you list his qualities - big, strong, good in the air, decent ability on the ball, brave - you would think he had the lot to become a great centre half. That’s why he receives interest and attention.

The problem is, his negatives outweigh the positives - rash, poor decision making, poor positioning.

For £2m? Maybe.

For £8m? No chance.

17.) 23 Jun 2019 22:29:36
Add to that poor discipline too LM67.

18.) 23 Jun 2019 22:43:29
U have to laugh when u see 8 million for McKenna and then a figure of 15 million offer for KT. Players are worlds apart. More like 3 to 5 million McKenna max and KT at least 25 million.

19.) 23 Jun 2019 23:23:10
If we are going to spend £8m why not get the french boy or the boy Kalas from Chelsea, read Chelsea are only looking for £5m.
This McKenna boy puts me in mind of Caldwell to much.



18 Jun 2019 19:22:00
Guys, I'll stick my neck out here. it's been reported that the Turnbull deal is off, I've been told it's on. Quietly confident the deal will be done.


1.) 18 Jun 2019 19:29:48
Hope so.

2.) 18 Jun 2019 19:35:41
Deal is off we've dropped our interest it's on sly.

3.) 18 Jun 2019 19:37:26
Please let it be true it’s still on as I think this boy
Will be a talent also il believe it when Celtic come out at tell us.

4.) 18 Jun 2019 19:52:32
Don't think so bud. Some pretty strong sources seem to be saying it's off.
The club should have binned it on Friday.

5.) 18 Jun 2019 20:12:04
I hope Turnbull still signs. If he dosn't then it is down to the agent not the club. This could make clear to other players and agents that the club is bigger than anyone person.
The agent concerned may find that other players will think twice before joinng him as Celtic are clearly saying we will not be messed about; take it or leave it.

6.) 18 Jun 2019 20:15:49
Well our transfer window has kicked off well, Lennon knew what we needed why are we dragging our heels over signings or is it typical Celtic wait to see if we are in champions league proper to spend.

7.) 18 Jun 2019 20:17:38
I thought Derek riordan was going to be a super talent and look how that turned out.

As much as I think the wee guy has bags of potential also, Celtic as a club can't be held to ransom by a 19 year old (who's only played half a season) and his agent.

For me, we move on.

8.) 18 Jun 2019 20:31:57
How's it lennys fault if the player doesn't want to come there's both I g lenny can do we're supposed to be after the French cb so it's up to the money men to go the deal not lenny.

9.) 18 Jun 2019 20:59:34
ok Dafa: what make you come out with a statement like that?

10.) 18 Jun 2019 21:30:31
He’s away to Norwich.

11.) 18 Jun 2019 22:07:04
Guys get real. How could we possibly sign him now after pulling out of the deal? HH.

12.) 18 Jun 2019 22:12:17
Regardless of how good he is right now or just potentially. Lennon clearly wanted to sign him. The Club acted in an unprofessional manner by publicly stating where they were DURING contract discussions. This put extra unnecessary pressure on the young boy and now it looks to have backfired and we look like idiots.
Board better act like the professional club we are in future and keep negotiations in house until a deal is either dead or concluded.

13.) 18 Jun 2019 22:28:39
GGGG that's pure nonsense. Board has got this one spot on.
This player and his agent have tried to use our club as a bargaining chip to put him down south.
The board also had to keep the fans up to date because if they hadn't the fans would have wanted to burn park head to the ground with the board in it.

14.) 18 Jun 2019 23:04:37
Well said kev, totally agree 👍🏼.

15.) 19 Jun 2019 00:02:28
Norwich sign him loan him back to Motherwell Come January or even before.

16.) 19 Jun 2019 08:17:57
Kev what’s nonsense? Lenny DID want to sign him. You think the board wouldn’t have been able to say we have had a bid accepted and at the moment we are in negotiations with the player and his agent?
Then if he went elsewhere they can release statement saying they offered him 10x what he was on at Motherwell and he was reluctant to sign therefore we have ended negotiations. Please tell me all the other clubs who make it public what a player from another team are asking for in terms of wages during negotiations when deal is ongoing?
This is confidential information that allows other potential clubs to know what you are willing to pay.
Norwich prob though he was a cert to sign for Celtic and only entered the race when it became clear what he was asking for is a standard wage for a player who’s fee is £3m and that Celtic wouldn’t pay it.
If it was private and deal wasn’t struck then the board could of said a BPL team offered far higher wages due to the finances down there and we would of said fair enough.
Now it’s clear we are offering small wages to players like Lustig who will prob leave after being shafted by the board.

17.) 19 Jun 2019 11:30:19
£3m Kouassi apparently on £1.2k per week. Just because it's standard in England doesn't mean we should pay it. I don't imagine Edouard demanded a £9m player's wages otherwise he wouldn't be in Glasgow.

18.) 19 Jun 2019 15:46:44
You've seen that info too Mike. I found some of it unbelievable when it had gamboa on £31k.

Brown what a servant, time to go to pasture.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 22:53:18
Why is it time for him to go to pasture as you say dafabet, he played well tonight . I for one am glad he’s with us, still need him around . Everyone knows what he gives us on and off the pitch, in fact I’d be surprised if he went to Australia as it will be burning away at him, his and the teams performance at their dome.

Does anyone on here think that he will want that picture of the people giving it to him to be an iconic moment for them in the season. He’s too much of a competitor for that. He won’t be happy til he’s pictured standing over them, probably with another league medal in his hands. Too many people want to write him off too early.



05 Dec 2018 21:46:10
How we drew that game I will never know. Perfectly good goal chopped off and we missed a pen. For me it's a must that we get a new striker in this window.


1.) 05 Dec 2018 22:56:41
I don't know why Griffith's even hits the pen. Christie and Ntcham both scored penalties recently, so Griffiths shouldn't be near it. Knew he was going to miss, he and Sinclair hurried their pens in the last 2 games. Christie is the player in form, he should take it.

2.) 05 Dec 2018 23:27:25
Agree can't see much wrong with the goal chopped off (expected) but that penalty was shocking and agree both rushed their penalties which is uncharacteristic of both players.



13 May 2018 19:34:37
It was a nothing game today however we need to be much better next season. Rangers can't be worse, they can get better. Hail Hail.


1.) 13 May 2018 21:12:23
The magnificent 'invincible' season was always going to be a benchmark for BR and the team, but in reality it may never be equaled again as everything fell into place perfectly last season.
This season has seen numerous injuries and form dips, resulting in 33 less goals scored and the winning margin drop to nine points - from the previous years 30, with us losing four games and drawing ten and although it does show the performances have not been as convincing and the gap between first and second has closed, we are still by far the top side in the country, but we do need to keep improving and adapting to maintain our superiority.
There's no doubt most teams raise their game and pack their defense against the Champions - that's the way it always is - but we really need to work on overcoming these tactics and especially making maximum use of set-pieces, as we do earn a fair amount every game, but waste far too many.

2.) 13 May 2018 22:12:46
There was nothing at stake today so the result wasn't important. It's just a bit disappointing though that we finished the season with 2 home matches yet failed to score in either of them. I do think that we need to address this in the summer.
Just a small point, and it has nothing to do with the result today, but how is the amount of injury time worked out? . In the first half there was no injury time at all, and in the second half there was only 2 minutes despite there being six substitutions, an Aberdeen goal, and the trainer being on the field. I was always led to believe that there should be 30 seconds added for each substitution and 30 seconds for each goal scored, that's before the time for any actual injuries.
This isn't complaining about the result today, I'm not sure we would have scored if we'd been playing for another half an hour, it's just that in England they seem to add on 4, 5, or 6 minutes at the end of a game. It seems to be quite a big difference.

3.) 13 May 2018 23:25:35
Would it be too difficult in this age of digital timepieces and and other ways of measuring time, to have someone somewhere pressing a button for every stop and start in play, and working out the added time, better make that two people of different persuasions to rule out any accusations of bias.

4.) 14 May 2018 08:15:22
The game yesterday was a nothing game as the players wouldn't want an injury before our hopefully history making game next Saturday. Hail Hail.

5.) 14 May 2018 21:09:44
Celtic team by their outstanding achievements last season and this deserve to be able to take their foot off the pedal in games of little importance . The vast majority of our supporters on forums and in our stands understand the need for the team to preserve some strength and enthusiam to a more important game.



21 Apr 2018 14:40:30
This Celtic team that is going fir a double treble are poor, nothing to boast about.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 15:52:39
We'll be doing a lot of boasting next Sunday 😂😂😂.

2.) 21 Apr 2018 16:38:28
I Daftybet, A poor team that has only lost 3 domestic games in 2 years, Get a grip of yourself man.
We had a poor game after last week, we will take the new club by 5 or 6 next week to win the league at home, I bet you will be crying into your cornflakes when we hump your team.

3.) 21 Apr 2018 21:56:44
Don’t think it’s a poor team but we have dropped points in 12 games this season in a league that isn’t high in quality

Stop living in the past with 3 losses in 2 years, last season is gone, this season is now and it’s been a poor one.

Far too many disruptions to the team, be it injuries or BR changing teams for the sake of it.

I can only recall at best 5 good domestic games this year and I hope it’s not a sign of things to come next season.

4.) 22 Apr 2018 10:29:23
Agree kev, that’s why I’m so frustrated. We can’t win more than a few games in a row. Jon away and boil your heid, I’m a Celtic man alright, I just don’t wear the green tinted specks like most other fans!

5.) 23 Apr 2018 23:29:05
Yes we are so poor that if we happen to win the SPL by some fluke and then go on to beat Motherwell in the SFA cup final, the only decent thing to do would be to stand aside and let Motherwell go up for the Cup . We should accept the runners up medals because some of our fans think we are poor .
Poor I remember the 90's we were poor, I remember the early 60's we were poor . I certainly don't relate B R 's team to those others.



11 Mar 2018 14:32:47
Rocking in here boys, brilliant hospitality and more importantly an easy win. Welshboy I have no do I you will gladly pay our charity bet. Hail Hail.

KT will be off for 25 million plus add on. I will confidently say that Mcgregor will stay. For all KT badge kissing etc, he wants a move. Wee Callum operates under the spot light and will remain loyal. Tells you everything about the guy.

Ed007, better to move on if you feel that way. No point doing something if your heart is not in it. Could be worse, you could have just renewed two seats in the Walfrid, only to see NL getting the job!


{Ed007's Note - Luckily for me - and my nephews - it's my mum's money that renews 2 tickets in the South Stand every season. At least I won't spend an hour before every game looking for a stream next season.
I hope Mr Lawwell kept the banners to cover the empty seats, in these cost cutting days at the Club there's no need to buy new ones surely?}
