Couple rumours floating about twitter mentioning Connell in the team for today at lwb but I can't see that, think he will play moi.


1.) 27 Sep 2020 12:03:03
Hope he's at least on the bench, he has bided his time and what I saw of him pre-season, he looked a tidy player - who wants to be here.

2.) 27 Sep 2020 13:28:58
I hope they do something. Taylor is not a LWB. We are getting little to no service from the left side. However l think Lennon with go with 4 at the back today. Hope brown is rested too as he seems miles off the pace.

3.) 27 Sep 2020 13:44:22
It would be very interesting if Luca Connell played BUT it would be a real set back for taylor .

Connell and or Taylor is not enough for the season ahead .



23 Sep 2020 10:47:34
2 names being banded about today Álex Collado and Niclas Eliasson.


1.) 23 Sep 2020 11:14:36
Swedish guy is a brilliant crosser apparently.

2.) 23 Sep 2020 11:29:55
Keep tabs on Doig from hibs as well who some believe with be better than the boy that just left hearts.

3.) 23 Sep 2020 11:59:29
The big striker at hibs doidge is worth watching as well.

4.) 23 Sep 2020 12:28:33
We were linked with Eliasson in January and as far as I can see he still hasn't signed a new deal.

5.) 24 Sep 2020 15:11:51
Ellison is a cracking player. don't know the other one though. I hope this one has some legs in it.



19 Sep 2020 12:28:12
Hearing turnbull will get his first start today.


1.) 19 Sep 2020 12:52:38
Hope u r right kev. Love to see him in action today.

2.) 19 Sep 2020 14:26:26
Your source speak with forked tongue Kev.

3.) 19 Sep 2020 14:33:38
Better turn up that hearing aid as it’s broony calmac and Oli 🤷🏻‍♂️🍀.

4.) 19 Sep 2020 14:42:43
Heard wrong.

5.) 19 Sep 2020 14:45:19
Heard wrong kev! We’ve decided we need ntcham McGregor and brown against the mighty livi!

6.) 19 Sep 2020 16:30:57
I know some of you don’t agree with the team but I think they have looked sharper today for the first time this season.
The midfield has played well, ntcham especially .
Ajeti has looked strong and sharper as well .
So far so good.

7.) 21 Sep 2020 14:20:42
After 15 minutes and up to last 15 mins, I thought we played superbly . This was the best I have seen Celtic play for a long time considering we were missing 3 very good players Eddie, Julien and Forrest . I really was happy at what I saw, but the series of calamities that led to Livingston’s second goal was the start of a very nervous and shaky closing period . We appeared to be nervous all over the pitch and we will have to do whatever it takes to over come these nerves or we will be in trouble.



16 Sep 2020 09:45:40
Hearing our 3rd bid for the boy fae Charlton is likely to go through. 1 mill + addons.


1.) 17 Sep 2020 12:26:05
Another effin punt. A work in progress we will no doubt hear. A rough diamond and then, the classic Celtic, one for the future. Before we loan him out to some cants in Algeria.

Sick of these hope and pray cheap buys. Success in all our previous punts suggests it will not end well. I just hope our luck changes and this guy can feckin play. I won't hold my breath. Going for the ten and pissing about haggling for a lad for 700k? Feckin joke.



03 Sep 2020 15:44:09
Supposedly we are keeping an eye of the seedorf boy fae motherwell.


1.) 03 Sep 2020 16:59:34
Postion does the boy play.

2.) 03 Sep 2020 17:07:26
Wide right.

3.) 03 Sep 2020 17:21:28
surely not.

4.) 03 Sep 2020 19:19:58
Hes is absolutely woeful. Hope this isn't true he's even worse than boyle.

5.) 03 Sep 2020 19:58:07
Cant see it given that he barely gets a game for Motherwell.

6.) 04 Sep 2020 12:34:30
He plays left side of the bench.

Two sayings that are doing my nut in right now
Hes a celtic man
We need someone who knows the league.
Neither are one but important in picking a manager.


1.) 07 Nov 2020 01:09:34
Spot on Kev.

2.) 07 Nov 2020 08:18:18
I totally agree Kev, if we are just looking under those criteria we are looking short term again . I like most, I presume want the best possible manager we can get, although would you say if we got a manager without any knowledge of the players or competition that he would have time to assess and change it quick enough for us this season to turn around the team to challenge the Sevconians for the league.

3.) 07 Nov 2020 11:02:59
I don’t totally agree.
There needs to be someone behind the scenes with some knowledge of Scottish football and the opposition Celtic are playing every week.
All the management team can’t go into domestic games blind.

4.) 07 Nov 2020 16:00:10
Agree Kev we just limit the pool of managers by going for Celtic men. Just go out and find the best replacement we can get on credentials and not because they have ties with the club.

5.) 07 Nov 2020 17:16:11
john kennedys been haunting the background and seems irremovable (not a slight on him as iv no idea how god he is) . so any manager theoretically has a celtic minded knowledgable man in situ already?

6.) 07 Nov 2020 20:22:55
all this trash that lennon has lost the dressing room is rubbish the players do not want to play for him. any players who think that way are letting them self down and have no self pride should never play for any other team again never mind celtic no player should dictate who is the manager. no one is bigger than our club some have lost form others think they are too good for us and believe it or some are trying too hard to make an immpression.



06 Nov 2020 17:09:33
Right guys and gals, crap week again but let's have a bit of fun.

Name a manager you would like to see take over IF Lennon leaves.
Keep it within reason not some pie in the sky name.

For me a couple stand out
Rangnick (maybe a bit to far? )
Thomas Frank who is doing great work down south.


1.) 06 Nov 2020 17:25:25
Eddie Howe is the obvious choice. Personally I'm not fussed as long as it is a young manager with modern ideas. However it ends up being whenever NL leaves they must be given full control like BR had. We don't need another PL yes man.

2.) 06 Nov 2020 17:28:24
I mentioned rangnick earlier Kev, he seems to have a good record of signing young players then moving them on for big fees . Eddie Howe who is linked, I’m unsure of. He plus decent football and done ok keeping Bournemouth in the prem but there was very little pressure on him there . They were never very strong defensively either .

3.) 06 Nov 2020 17:42:53
I don’t know anything about how a football club is run and I’ve no idea who is availability but from a purely business perspective with Celtics turnover as an international brand if DD and to a lesser extent PL don’t have a Plan B and their eye on somebody somewhere and have all their eggs in the one NL basket I’d be absolutely stunned.

4.) 06 Nov 2020 17:53:04
Steve Clark.

5.) 06 Nov 2020 18:06:26
I would say a manager on a temporary basis, who knows his way about a team and who is hard to kick some arses. With a view to a new management team and approach next year. MON, Keane, Pearson or someone until the end of the season. Then someone to rebuild next year, someone young and motivated. Maloney maybe.

6.) 06 Nov 2020 18:12:03
Chris Hughton
I know people won't be happy with this but I would bring WGS back until the end of the season with Scott Gemmill as assistant with him taking over in the summer.

7.) 06 Nov 2020 18:42:46
He knows the league
Makes teams hard to beat.
Worked at big clubs with big players.

Steve clarke.

8.) 06 Nov 2020 19:05:01
Clarke is so negative though, I know he gets teams organised but we need more than that . When Rogers came in he reinvigorated the whole club including fans . We need that again.
I wonder if lawell is digging out his waterproofs again to pop into a few showers in the hope someone takes up a job offer 🙈.

9.) 06 Nov 2020 20:28:49
Nigel Pearson
Bruno Lage
Eddie Howe.

10.) 06 Nov 2020 20:50:35
Chris Hughton was linked before Lennon got the job and I would have been happy with that. Question is, is Lennon actually going?

11.) 07 Nov 2020 00:55:04
Chris Houghton Eddie Howe Nigel Pearson are all much better than nl tactically. Howe plays attacking football however he had no plan b last year and Bournemouth were awful, Pearson could steady us like he did Watford last year b4 getting sacked when they were still staying up. Houghton been outta work for a while but think he has done well everywhere he has been so far. I'd like us to think outside the box this time and go get a young European manager maybe ex-player ala lamps and Gerrard model who have that knowledge of the modern game and give them a chance to show what they can do. Any ideas folks?

{Ed001's Note - Hughton is manager of Nottingham Forest.}

12.) 07 Nov 2020 16:03:07
Always thought someone like Solbakken would do a decent job here. Out of a job currently too.



23 Oct 2020 07:51:36
My team for Aberdeen

Ajer duffy welsh taylor
Brown McGregor
Christie Elyouanossi laxalt


1.) 23 Oct 2020 08:23:59
Frimpong Ajer Duffy Laxalt
Mcgregor Brown
Turnbull Christie Elyounoussi

2.) 23 Oct 2020 08:32:49
Drop Brown and Taylor.

3.) 23 Oct 2020 08:43:46
Kev, do you not think we need to breakaway from the instinctive brown McGregor duo. focus has been on defense but midfield is a shambles. slow pedestrian. poor in the tackle . no drive .

4.) 23 Oct 2020 09:18:26
Duffy is a scare and I am baffled as to why he’s been so poor for us

Welsh - I wouldn’t play him either - it’s been unfair to play him in the last 2 games and he’s been at fault with Duffy for most goals conceded in last 2 games - away to Aberdeen especially if we lose could kill any confidence he has completely

Taylor won’t play again while Laxalt is here unless there is suspension or injury

Back 4 for sure but Brown shouldn’t be played again this year - he’s completely finished - all good and well being inspirational but he’s a man down in midfield, no surprise that we played well with CalMac, Christie and Rogic ( who if only could stay fit )

To be honest Kev, We are in a place where no one knows what it’s going to take formation wise or personnel wise to get us back on top playing good football.

5.) 23 Oct 2020 09:58:20
guys. stop trying to second guess lennon.
we all know the team before its leaked.

6.) 23 Oct 2020 10:14:56
When brown went of last night the tempo and speed of ball deffinently picked up and was more fluent.

7.) 23 Oct 2020 10:29:56
Possession stats went up in 2nd half with change of formation. Also less defensive touches.

8.) 23 Oct 2020 11:28:23
You lot shouting about dropping brown, it made no difference to the team when we done it against St johnstone.
As for playing frimpong, its a waste of a Jersey. The bhoy can not defend and can not cross a baw. Play taylor behind laxalt makes us more solid and frees laxalt to really attack the fullback.



22 Oct 2020 22:11:56
The quicker we get forrest and elhamed back on that right hand side the better because wee frimpong is not the answer.


1.) 22 Oct 2020 22:43:47
Kev his final ball is drastic the wee man is stuck in two minds what to do most the time.

2.) 22 Oct 2020 22:44:10
His final ball is awful he's really needs to work on that. but he done mire tonight in 10 mins than did the full game sat.

3.) 22 Oct 2020 23:32:05
Frimpong needs to calm down and pick a pass . he is too jumpy.

4.) 22 Oct 2020 23:38:29
Agree Kev, Elhamed would've started that game 100% over Frimpong. Was always the worry playing 3-5-2 Frimpong would've been isolated a bit at the back he looked scared going forward because of the space he was leaving behind hin so kept passing it backwards or sideways. Played much better 2nd half when shape was changed.



17 Oct 2020 11:06:10
Rumour this is the team. I hope not because they will have a field day down the right.


1.) 17 Oct 2020 11:17:21
Rumour or not #kev83
This is our first team squad most are first team squad players. 4,4,2,
That team above should be capable. Griff on bench start with klamila his running around will have them backed up I like how he does things off the ball takes players away. Etc. If we go at them we win. Also a gd thing our squad have not played a rangers game so rangers IE Gerrard, won't know what to do as they are unfamiliar.

2.) 17 Oct 2020 11:18:54
You got it right apart from Griff. Klimala starts. Awful selection.

3.) 17 Oct 2020 11:23:50
Maybe with that, we can switch from a 4-5-1
Ajer Duffy Welsh Laxalt
Frimpong Brown Cal-Mac Ntcham MOI
to a 3-5-2 and have options from the bench as-and-when?

4.) 17 Oct 2020 11:28:53
Brown, Ntcham and McGregor CANNOT play together - we can all see that so why can't Lennon?

5.) 17 Oct 2020 11:31:36
Yep your on fire 🔥@celticmad.

6.) 17 Oct 2020 11:32:37
Totally agree bigbubs lennon is tactically stupid. We should be playing 2 strikers and get at them from the start. They will over run us in midfield yet again.

7.) 17 Oct 2020 11:37:30
Ntcham better deliver today as he has been honking this season and I have yet to see him put in a performance he is capable off.

Also if we are going two up front I would not have played MOI as second striker as I reckon either griffiths or ajeti would have been better choices.

8.) 17 Oct 2020 11:39:51
CM i definitely think it will be a 4.

9.) 17 Oct 2020 11:46:52
Wow @marco18888.
Why don't you jinx us. Tacticly stupid I hope you eat your words.
