no Edouard or ntcham in the squad could they be off.

2.) 20 Jan 2021 19:13:06

It Looks like Elyounoussi will partner Griffiths up front.
And Ajer will play right back.

3.) 20 Jan 2021 19:28:14
Don't they have to self isolate UI?

4.) 20 Jan 2021 19:55:05
thats probs what it is Henrik mate.

1.) 16 Jan 2021 13:51:57
Thats a shocking line up.
Welsh was the best defenders against hibs.
We were playing with a man down with rogic.
Laxalt and and duffy are chronic.

2.) 16 Jan 2021 14:01:27
Spot on kev! Thought young welsh was the our best player the other nite, and we put in the guy who cost us the game at snake mountain in place of him! Also bringin young Robertson who was getting valuable game time at gillingham back to sit on the bench is yet another idiotic idea! Really just about getting these games over with and the countdown for Lennon to get tae! Hopefully followed by lawell!

3.) 16 Jan 2021 14:03:44
agreed on young welsh no wonder our youngsters are looking elsewhere for first team football.

4.) 16 Jan 2021 14:08:39
Totally agree kev Welsh was our best defender Taylor should have cone in as well.

5.) 16 Jan 2021 14:15:35
Exactly Liam! If now isnโ€™t the chance to let our youths show us what they can offer then when is! Another moronic decision from Lennon and co! But not surprising in the slightest!

6.) 16 Jan 2021 14:17:51
Is that a 4-5-1 as both Ralston and Frimpong are starting? Would that mean Rogic is up front lol? Welsh was standout literally nothing got through him the whole game against Hibs, shame he's got dropped for someone who isn't a CB and was pish against the peepul.

7.) 16 Jan 2021 14:22:18
i would guess 4 1 4 1.

8.) 16 Jan 2021 14:29:35
Fully agree lads. What a joke. Our best defender from last gets dropped. How rogic is playing tell us exactly why we are so bad. Total joke! Welsh has been shafted!

9.) 16 Jan 2021 14:39:15
And replaced by Israel best rugby tackler!

10.) 16 Jan 2021 14:40:41
I must admit I though it was between Bitton and Duffy to see who partnered Welsh.
Welsh had over 90% passing accuracy on Monday.

11.) 16 Jan 2021 14:43:17
Dont worry the Scottish johnny Wilkinson will be back on wed to fire a few more shots over the bar.

12.) 16 Jan 2021 14:45:47
Going by the above comments more points are going to be dropped today!

13.) 16 Jan 2021 15:19:18
I see the bingo machine has been rolled out again.

14.) 16 Jan 2021 16:38:44
Was that John Kennedy on the sideline when Oko-Flex was coming on?
I thought he was in isolation.

15.) 16 Jan 2021 17:17:14
I absolutely give in with our management team. I am begging the club to start the rebuild now. Get a manager in place now and allow him a few months in the building before next season starts. The poisoned chalice of 10 is well and truly gone now and if there is to be anything good to come from this season, the change must happen now. The Craig Leven tactics of playing without a forward was criminal, Ewan Henderson being brought on as a game changer is comical and why are we playing the ball around at the back, when we are in the closing mins/ secs. I just canโ€™t believe how quickly our world has crumbled. If we do not change the manager now, then next season will be a write off too. Livingston were the fittest and best coached team today, they didnโ€™t just sit in, the attacked and had the engines to get back. That is down to the training regime Gary Holt installed at Livingston. Honestly i fear this season wonโ€™t be a one off, unless NL goes now.

16.) 16 Jan 2021 17:37:11
Maybe Holt left Livingston, because he is coming to us.

17.) 16 Jan 2021 18:14:43
Gary Holt was announced as the new sporting director of Falkirk a couple of days ago.

18.) 16 Jan 2021 20:09:26
Why bring Robertson back when his getting game time and plaudits at gillingham when thatโ€™s one area we havenโ€™t really been hit? Been better off get aflobi back so we actually had a recognisable striker. Clueless.

19.) 16 Jan 2021 21:13:17
Welsh should of been playing. Can't understand why he is not getting more game time.

{Ed007's Note - We kept a clean sheet, what difference would playing Welsh have made?}

20.) 16 Jan 2021 22:18:56
that would have been a shout, if I'm honest i forgot about that boy if we had the option it should have been took up.

21.) 16 Jan 2021 22:30:32
We were fortunate to escape with a point today Livvy created a few good chances while we played in 1 good ball across the box in the full game and a half chance from Frimpong.
We could of played almost same starting 11 as cup final where we at least created numerous chances.
Canโ€™t understand why Rogic would play up top? Heโ€™s good at long range shooting and has nice feet in tight areas and the eye for a pass, he doesnโ€™t run on shoulder of last man, win aerial duels, hold it up or spin in behind so what attributes would make anybody feel he could play up there?
Embarrassing getting outplayed for long periods at home to Livvy on grass surface.

At least weโ€™ll see some youngsters.

2.) 11 Jan 2021 18:43:52
All 4 strikers out.
Wee Harper can make a name for himself.

3.) 11 Jan 2021 18:44:23
So is that the squad for the next three games (counting tonight) ? Unless we make a few signings this week?

4.) 11 Jan 2021 18:45:36
Always on the plus side steph.

5.) 11 Jan 2021 18:49:26
Still a pretty decent team I suppose.

6.) 11 Jan 2021 18:55:03
I thought we were told Duffy wouldn't make the game?

7.) 11 Jan 2021 18:57:29
Nice experiment in a rubbish time.

8.) 11 Jan 2021 18:59:25
I think the players only miss 2 games because the 10 days will be up next Monday or Tuesday.
Thatโ€™s if the 10 days started from when they arrived back in Glasgow.
If the players can get a training session in next Tuesday, they might be okay to play at Livingston.

9.) 11 Jan 2021 19:00:27
I'm not confident with Duffy.

10.) 11 Jan 2021 19:03:18
he deserves credit for making himself available jon.

11.) 11 Jan 2021 19:18:37
Let's just face it the club is a total embarrassment to the fans and some one has to pay for the shambles that have happened in the past 2 years some one at least has to walk after this.

12.) 11 Jan 2021 19:21:22
That's us had it Lennon is still going to run this game.

13.) 11 Jan 2021 20:18:06
Tony league is finished, been an absolute embarrassment. A total letdown on the fans in every aspect. Personally I think a total clearout from top to bottom should start just now.

14.) 11 Jan 2021 22:15:05
If any faint hopes for title were there before tonight they are gone now. Most in form team in country in next 2 games 1 without full squad and 1 with it but fir the already tricky way game. If we can get 4 points I will be happy tbh because if we get any less we might actually have to fight for 2nd spot.
Canโ€™t believe how badly let down I feel this season wouldnโ€™t have been as bad in my worst nightmare in August this is just ridiculous now.

15.) 11 Jan 2021 22:24:50
A clear out from the very top is well required. We were spoiled under BR, the standards and fitness levels were something else. 2 years before BR arrived, Broony was finished to some and BR arrived, he raised the fitness levels and Broonie was back to being a hero again, to the doubters. I see Calmac is getting it in the neck from some tonight also,! the guy deserves better. The clear out should start with Pedro and NL should go too. Got to thank them for their service but both under estimated the opposition and their desperation to stop 10. I love NL but sorry his football is in another era. We need a proper coach back in, someone who is first in and last out the door, a coach who leaves nothing to chance and drills the team. Celtic need to get back to being fitter off and on the park and to be honest, I would start the spade work now. This car crash of a season has nothing positive to look forward to and at least if the changes started now, we might have something to look forward to. The pressure of 10 is gone, up in smoke, so let's start the rebuild, sooner rather than later.

16.) 11 Jan 2021 22:49:17
Hazard is complete sh*te.

17.) 11 Jan 2021 22:53:08
Callum McGregor should be utterly ashamed of his performance (or lack of one) tonight. Heโ€™ll be captain if heโ€™s here next season, and thatโ€™s what weโ€™ve got to rely on. Rogic hasnโ€™t kicked a ball since the rat left. Let him go if anyone will take him.
Hazard made the saves he should have made, then sold the game when he has to deal with a cross. Heโ€™s a pub league goalie.
Laxalt canโ€™t defend, Taylor canโ€™t attack, frimpong canโ€™t defend and has no final ball.

18.) 12 Jan 2021 16:24:23
I wasn't complaining, I was happy to see him in the line up.
I was just surprised after reading that he would miss the game.

19.) 12 Jan 2021 17:23:23
I looked forward to watching the younger guys, see whstvthey could do turns out, as I feared, they're nowhere near good enough, and I include Johnson in that as long as he weighs 3stone. Powderpuff doesn't get close. Harper had some nice close control, but again, he showed nothing to suggest we will not have to sign strikers. He got cramp after 58 minutes, Ofaflex too looked nowhere near fit enough.

Welsh looked ok, Duffy was better, but when it mattered we fell in our arse again. Felt for Hazard but, again when it mattered found flapping. Even though I always thought our seemingly maniacal obsession with regressing would arrive. Still hard to take as we have basically allowed a deid club with no money to overtake us. 9 failures to qualify for the CL in a dozen years is Lawells legacy. He as well as our manager and everyone involved in recruitment need to k8ve on. This latest farce with Dubai requires the CEO to spend more time with his heated driveway and if he takes the bonus this year he has no shame.

1.) 02 Jan 2021 11:22:31
That'll be all the pi*h about the team being leaked shot down then.
Really happy with that line up. Looks like we're going to take them game to them this time.
Let's get in tae them!

Hail Hail.

2.) 02 Jan 2021 11:26:46
Laxalt and Frimpong will have to be disciplined and sit in a bit more today, I hope he has drilled that into them.

3.) 02 Jan 2021 11:28:04
Glad he's playing Griff and Eddy and maybe Nelly Noosi would have been better than Christie? Frimpong and Laxalt could be our weak links; but plenty of options on the bench if required, as long as any changes are not left too late as usual. COYBIG.

4.) 02 Jan 2021 11:29:08
Itโ€™s the team most of the supporters wanted.
The most attacking team he couldโ€™ve picked.
Thereโ€™s going to be plenty of goals,
As long as Celtic score more than them.

5.) 02 Jan 2021 11:31:43
Well as long as if one goes forward the other stays back. No point all charging forward and leaving the CB exposed.

6.) 02 Jan 2021 11:38:09
Laxalt and Frimpong give me the fear.

7.) 02 Jan 2021 11:49:11
Agree Stevie. I'd have Ajer RB and Taylor LB with Duffy and Bitton in the middle.

Christie worries me as well, always gives away needless fouls. Last thing we need is them pumping balls in to the box.

8.) 02 Jan 2021 11:57:23
That would have been my back 4 to keep solid and let the rest take care of itโ€™s self.

9.) 02 Jan 2021 12:00:31
Confident we will score it's the other end am worried about.

10.) 02 Jan 2021 12:08:14
Back line is the weak link Iโ€™m afraid! Weโ€™ve got what is essentially 2 midfielders at centre half with a 40 grand a week international centre half on the bench! Happy with middle to front and I think weโ€™ll cause them problems! Just need to hope that back line holds up!

11.) 02 Jan 2021 12:15:44
As long as we win nothing less will do and sadly nothing less can do.

12.) 02 Jan 2021 12:25:47
Don't feel good about this today, they will get shots on goal without doubt and I don't think I've seen barkas make an actual "save" in any game played.
They will score at least 1 probably 2 so we need at least 2 for even a draw.

13.) 02 Jan 2021 12:27:39
I would have that back line aswell, I would also play Frimpong as a right winger, and leave Christie on the bench.

1.) 30 Dec 2020 14:02:10
Iโ€™m glad Hazard has been taken out of the team.
His time will come when he builds more experience.
Itโ€™s a good lineup, the only change I would make,
Is to put Ajer right back and bring in Bitton to play alongside Jullian.

2.) 30 Dec 2020 14:07:00
Kick in the teeth for young Hazard but let's hope Barkas is up for it if called upon.

3.) 30 Dec 2020 14:16:37
Keeper change again baffling. won 5 on the bounce and we change the keeper.

4.) 30 Dec 2020 14:37:46
Barkas is the no. 1. Hazards time will come.

5.) 30 Dec 2020 14:41:44
Great line up.

6.) 30 Dec 2020 14:47:25
I agree putting too much pressure on Conor Hazard is damaging in the long run, but he should take great credit (and a Cup medal) from what he did during a very difficult period. He will be back!
Barkas was bought to be the number-one and although he has had some dodgy performances, it's high time he proved why we brought him here.

7.) 30 Dec 2020 15:05:05
Just weakened the back line again. So we have a back three of a goalkeeper and two defenders. Baffling.

8.) 30 Dec 2020 15:59:36
Still think Michael Stewart nailed it a few weeks back, we donโ€™t hit the line often enough. 30 yards out, everything goes inside to an already congested area. If we stretch teams a bit, eddy and griffโ€™s one twos will take them apart.

9.) 01 Jan 2021 10:06:11
Hazard is 22 he's not 16. It's not his age that will keep him out it's his ability. This, it could ruin him is pish. If he was good enough he woukd play, he isn't yet and unless he improves he won't ever be our goalie. That's why he's out.

10.) 21 Jan 2021 13:23:29
I genuinely believe that NL staying on as coach is further damaging the Club.

I would hope he has the strength of character to approach the board and tell them he cannot do anyomre, this is the end of the line.

The board then need to make the next move for the good of both NL and Celtic Football Club, which would be removing NL and his staff from their positions.

This way he could depart with dignity.

11.) 21 Jan 2021 13:32:23

there's nothing deluded about it he is saying what it is complete and utter hypocrisy. slagging us for some they gave us permission to do yet heap praise on another club for something there players were told not to do. well done to him dubai was maybe best not to go but the slagging we have took for it is a complete joke by the people who told us to go and by the media.



13 Jan 2021 17:20:29


1.) 13 Jan 2021 17:44:53
I think Lawwell deserves credit for coming out and doing what our fans wanted and thatโ€™s apologise for making the mistake in going to Dubai.
I still believe that Dermot Desmond had the final say in keeping Lennon back in November.
I think if it was up to Lawwell, then Lennon wouldโ€™ve been replaced.

2.) 13 Jan 2021 17:49:59
Whats your view on his statement Ed? apart from the fact he used "Proven" 50 million times ๐Ÿคฃ.

{Ed007's Note -


3.) 13 Jan 2021 17:57:31
Totally agree with you Buzz. I think.

4.) 13 Jan 2021 17:58:02
Ed 007 at least the club have come out and acknowledged their mistake with regards to Dubai. Sometimes in life you make mistakes and irrespective of how much you would like to rewind and undo it you canโ€™t. The best you can do is hold your hands up. Heโ€™s done that with respect to Dubai and apologised he can do no more. Iโ€™d like to know if it was Dermot Desmond that nailed his tail to that seat and made him make the announcement and apologise.

Disappointed however that he didnโ€™t honour the boardโ€™s commitment made in November as I said earlier to update us following the January review in the context of their statement made then that Neil Lennon was the man to turn thing round about which we all know now not to be the case. Maybe that will come later in January but it will certainly need to come before season ticket renewal time. PS: he hasnโ€™t half aged dramatically.

{Ed007's Note - The Dubai stuff I really couldn't care less about, JFP. The Board never made any commitment to update the fans regarding a review:

"The Board continues to work closely with Neil and his team to support them as they seek to do so and progress will be reviewed in the new year.
The Board wishes to take this opportunity to thank all Celtic supporters ....."

I think even JP Taylor has got the wrong end of the stick as there was never any official statement - that I can see anyway - that fans would be updated.}

5.) 13 Jan 2021 18:17:06
All staged by lawell, he may as well have gave Gerry the questions.
Itโ€™s worked for us the last 4 years, yes but we werenโ€™t in a global C.V. and we werenโ€™t 19 points behind them.
Then the usual โ€œletโ€™s stick together โ€œ heโ€™s starting his baiting for season tickets already, mentioning world class club . World class clubs donโ€™t get beat by Ross county, go 22 points behind their rivals, and the football we watched this year has been anything but class.

Ed good quote that statement certainly doesnโ€™t reflect JP Taylorโ€™s statement. For me the reason an apology was due for Dubai isnโ€™t that it wasnโ€™t too clever but the outcome and losing to Hibs with having to play with no recognised strikers self isolating. As I said he canโ€™t undo it what's done is done. Just received the PL interview from the club by email which has obviously been sent to all season ticket holders something had obviously made him act. On another note the interviewer referred to allegations of arrogance and loss of values at the club? I think these guys are on the banter page Ed. Iโ€™ve thought that with a few articles Iโ€™ve read elsewhere which were just about word for word for comments on here. Either that or one our butters are under cover reporters. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Cheers Ed.

Too little too late and maybe an attempt to escape further sanctions and curry favour with a support that he knows wants him gone.

8.) 13 Jan 2021 18:05:35
The statement is appalling yes he says it was wrong and apologies then spends 5 minutes explaining why it was a great idea. Complete non apology makes things far worse in my view.

9.) 13 Jan 2021 19:10:51
KOK thatโ€™s a fair point when somebody says to you โ€˜Iโ€™m sorry BUTโ€™ itโ€™s not an apology not even in Korea.

10.) 13 Jan 2021 19:11:52
Aye get your own news agency to write the questions, definitely practice the questions then ok the cut recording.

11.) 13 Jan 2021 19:48:11
Personally I think the Board now realise the arrogant and aloof approach was not going down well at all with the fans and felt they had to change tack. I feel that the statement is about as disingenuous as you will come across and is seen by them as a sop to try and calm the disquiet. It shrieks of fabrication and appeasement. It is also the classic tactic of "it's them and us" scenario. I, for one, am not buying it. No deflection from the corporate dereliction of duty from the top down in my opinion.

12.) 13 Jan 2021 19:52:39
Agreed Foxi ๐Ÿ‘.

13.) 13 Jan 2021 20:14:49
Listened to the statement with an open mind and hope, just didnโ€™t seem sincere to me, coming just after Walker saying an apology was required wasnโ€™t helpful. Should have happen d as soon as sturgeon raised it.

Apology not accepted Peter.

The most impressive thing about that is how he kept a straight face when claiming he wanted to maximise the potential of our club when he gave Lennon the manager's job.

I don't know why my reply didn't come up there. Anyway, I think the idiot should keep his mouth shut and keep his nose out of things that has nothing to do with him.
How would he have liked it if Jose Mourinho had came out and said he wanted the Man Utd job during his disastrous spell there? I knew he had no class but this is a new low even for him.
He basically said the club would need to give him substantial money to spend so for once I applaud Peter Lawwell for his frugal approach - anything that keeps that clown Moyes away from CFC has to be a good thing.

William Troost-Ekong's contract with FC Groningen runs until 30-06-217 and he is currently on loan to FC Dordrecht until this summer. He only left Spurs for FC Groningen in the summer of 2013 signing a 4-year-deal. He played 2 games for them before joining FC Dordrecht on loan in January 2014 until the end of the 2013/14 season then last summer he was sent back to FC Dordrecht on loan for the entire 2014/15 season.
That's why the name of the source website is filtered out, Tony, they just make up stories to attract hits without checking their facts, hit-whoring. If they can't get his contract details right what chance do you think their rumours are true?

It might be an apt time to explain again about the cost of transfers (excluding wages). What is paid by the buying club would typically include:

(a) Transfer fee - the big number.
(b) Any levy applied by the local FA โ€“ 5% for the Premier League.
(c) Tax due on the transfer fee โ€“ typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable.
(d) Agent fees โ€“ this may be to one or more agents (as an example, Liverpool have spent ยฃ44M plus VAT on agent fees (nearly double the next highest) last season alone).
(e) Tax due on the agent fees โ€“ typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from โ€“ it is not reclaimable.
(f) Intermediary fees โ€“ this may be to one or more sponging leeches (what do you mean you have a super agent?) .
(g) Tax due on the Intermediary fees โ€“ typically this is VAT at the local rate where the Intermediary bills from โ€“ it is not reclaimable.
(h) Signing on fee to the player (possibly including non-reclaimable VAT if the player is VAT registered).
(i) Legal fees.
(j) VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable.
(k) Moving/relocation costs for the player.
(l) VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable.
(m) Solidarity and Training Contributions (see below).
(n) Paying up insurance costs to the selling club (usually waived).

What is paid by the selling club would typically include:

(a) If the player is under 24 and moving between different football associations, a Solidarity contribution paid to his previous clubs responsible for his training - this is 5% of the transfer fee received (apportioned 5% of the contribution for each year from the season of his 12th birthday to the season of his 15th birthday and 10% of the contribution for each season from his 16th to 23rd birthdays). This is generally (there are exceptions) recoverable from the buying club but responsibility (that is meant to be with the buying club) can be assigned to the selling club.
(b) If the player moves to a higher category club (all clubs being categorised 1 to 4) then Training Compensation is due for the period of age 12 to 21. Compensation is due to all clubs when the player turns from amateur to professional and thereafter only when he moves from his final training club to another club. The initial training compensation is levied at the training costs associated with Category 4 clubs. The subsequent figure is agreed between the sides or tribunal if necessary. This is generally (there are exceptions) recoverable from the buying club but responsibility (that is meant to be with the buying club) can be assigned to the selling club.
(c) Any monies owed to the player if he did not request a transfer โ€“ again this is 5% of the transfer fee received.
(d) Any monies owed to the player in terms of his contract (typically outstanding owed wages (not future wages) and bonuses).
(e) Any money contractually due to a previous club as the result of a sell-on clause.}
