Jonathan Afolabi fae Southampton?


1.) 17 Aug 2019 13:52:53
Good prospect!

Another wide player though.

2.) 17 Aug 2019 13:55:16
20, winger and can play CF, no Sinclair again today, did he move in transfer window.

3.) 17 Aug 2019 14:07:42
No tamtom. Must have failed that medical eh?

4.) 17 Aug 2019 14:20:56
The treatment of Sinclair has been disgraceful.

They took a risk and extended his contract hoping to get a fee for him.

Now we have a player on £30k per week who isn't playing and won't be in the squad most weeks to accommodate Morgan and Johnstone who will be lucky to get 10 goals and assists between them this season.

5.) 17 Aug 2019 14:31:54
He’s failing something with Lennon.

6.) 17 Aug 2019 14:47:22
Why are we playing a better team against the Pars than again Cluij.



09 Aug 2019 08:40:16
So Rogers tried for McGregor and got told to bolt.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 08:50:31
Thank God kev, just read Desmond stepped in and stoped it, see the sheep got humped again, how many times will they let the coefficient points slip, every year! . ing hopeless!

2.) 09 Aug 2019 09:45:29
I know for a fact the RAT called Forrest a few times over the summer to ask if he would be interested!

3.) 09 Aug 2019 09:54:11
If that's true it would be tapping up.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 10:00:13
Don't doubt for a second that happens with players all over the world Kev.

{Ed007's Note - No it doesn't. That's why players have agents.}

5.) 09 Aug 2019 10:30:06
Big bubs it's totally different putting feelers out to agents to find out if a player would be open to a move, than a manager openly contacting a player to ask him to move.
Mind jose and Cole got caught in the restaurant and got their bums felt for it.

6.) 09 Aug 2019 10:39:22
Did Jose not do it with Gerrard as well? Ed you're not telling me that if a manager has a personal relationship with a player he wants to sign he wouldn't pick up the phone?

{Ed007's Note - Jose Mourinho & Peter Kenyon met Ashley Cole and his agent in a hotel and that led to Cole being fined £100k by the PL back in 2005. Only an idiot would risk it these days and considering what happened at Liverpool when Rodgers was there I seriously doubt he would do it. You're not trying to tell me that Lawwell wouldn't LOVE to pick up the phone and report Rodgers to the PL for it?
Players will often talk to other players about moves but, whilst wrong, is tolerated as it would be impossible to manage.}

7.) 09 Aug 2019 12:53:47
So if Desmond had to step in to stop McGregor from being sold does that mean Pistol Pete was ready to sell him?

8.) 09 Aug 2019 13:01:05
The Rat trying to sign McGregor is no big deal guys. So what if he did? Managers of clubs try to sign players all the time.
It was somewhat refreshing though to hear that Desmond and Co. said no to the idea. HH.

9.) 09 Aug 2019 13:33:15
Why is Rodgers a Rat yet Tierney is OK.

If people are saying Tierney did what was best for his career then so did rodgers.

This has been the first offer for Tierney and he wanted to go. Rodgers might have moved in February but that's when the offer for him came in and he decided he wanted the new challenge. He might have taken his backroom staff with him but they came with him and he's comfortable with them, it happens with most managers.

And he has every right to go for players he feels will benifit his team we got sinclair that way.

Tierney left because he wanted to just like Rodgers we can put blinders on all we want but at the end of the day he left for the first club that offered him a way out.

I wish him well and I hope he does well.

10.) 09 Aug 2019 14:03:39
I believe KT left because of Rodgers, I believe when Everton were interested before and Rodgers stated it would be morally wrong to stand in the way of a young man quadrupling his wages. I reckon he should been saying he is not for sale at any price, I think that was probably when KT decided he would be moving rather than staying for the 10IAR we all thought he would stay for.

11.) 09 Aug 2019 15:01:49
As I said in an earlier post (somewhere) , one major differeence between Rodgers and KT is time. Rodgers can continue managing into his 70's like many others before him whilst on the other hand a players time i limited. Few can continue playing at the top level after ther mid 30's. KT was, is and as far as I am concerned always will be a Celt whilst thw manner of BR's leaving etc could quite easily have resulted in Celtic not winning the league last season. For me BR could easily have waited until May. KT obviously sees that to improve his game he needs to be tested week in and week out against the best and like it or not thatthe EPL where very goodplayers are more evenly spread around the various squads whereas Italy, Spain, Germany, France etc are a bit like 2-3 horse races. In an ideal world KT could have realized other dreams with us but unfortunaately its not a level playing field and I cannot see Celtic achieving another European title whilst we play in Scotland. I wish KT all the best and hope I live long enough to see him pull on the hoops again.

12.) 09 Aug 2019 15:43:30
Rodgers walked out at a crucial point in thecseadon and basically left us in the lurch so there's a massive difference for me.

13.) 09 Aug 2019 15:58:47
The difference between Rodgers and KT is the timing, Rodgers jumped ship at a point in the season where if his replacement hadnt hit the ground running, we could have lost the league and cup. KT has won all he can with celtic and given us years of his life and tbh 10iar is not a given. I for one wish KT well and hopefully see him back in the hoops once he has conquered world football as the best left back in the world.

14.) 09 Aug 2019 16:29:45
Anyone that can't see the difference between what Rodgers did jumping ship before the treble was finished while trying to gut the club of our entire back room team and Tierney transferring to a better league during the transfer window must be sniffing glue.

15.) 09 Aug 2019 17:56:38
Players come and go, as do managers, if Rodgers left in the close season he would have had all our blessings I’m sure, but he left right before 2 very important games against hibs and hearts, absolutely stupid comparison to make between Rodgers and tierney.



08 Aug 2019 17:26:41
What happened with Sinclair? Did he move?


1.) 08 Aug 2019 17:48:38
Dont think so mate but the more I think about it, i actually reckon once we sign another LB Boli will be moved further up the pitch in place of Sinclair.

2.) 08 Aug 2019 18:02:51
I know where id put boli.

3.) 08 Aug 2019 19:19:37
Further up the park into the stand behind the goals if he continues to be as bad .

4.) 08 Aug 2019 19:30:28
Looks like Lennon and Celtic's attempt to sell Sinclair has backfired on them. NL now has to play him because he is far better than Morgan and wanted to stay here.

5.) 09 Aug 2019 11:05:12
This hating on boli is pathetic. His stats were better than than the new RB v St Johnstone but it already seems the knives are out for the guy. I'll reserve judgement until Xmas n gi the boy a chance.

These same fans are the mob who'd have 'driven forrest down' when he hit a bit of poor form under Ronnie few seasons back, now 'he's a true celtic man'.

6.) 09 Aug 2019 16:11:37
He said it tongue in cheek and it’s been taken out of context. He confirmed as much in today’s press conference.



07 Aug 2019 20:44:25
Being reported we've agreed terms with the gunners.




02 Aug 2019 09:31:37
Reports coming out of Italy that Milan are looking at Ajer.


1.) 02 Aug 2019 09:51:49
If he was smart he wouldn’t go there, shambles of a club. He won’t leave this season as he knows himself that he has got some developing to do before the move is right.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 11:44:22
Seems they are changing their focus and going to recruit young up and coming players.

3.) 02 Aug 2019 14:00:42
They certainly have but they’re nothing special in my eyes and there billionaire owner will never eclipse what Milan used to be. World class players opting to play for them and wanting to play for them.

4.) 02 Aug 2019 14:07:31
Reports coming out of Italy 😂
It was in the BBC gossip page at half 7 this morning. Hot off the press or should I say gazetta.

5.) 02 Aug 2019 15:05:50
It was on Celtic news it's a load of rubbish.

6.) 02 Aug 2019 15:09:06
Pjf23 it originally came fae a Italian web paged then picked up by Scottish press.

7.) 02 Aug 2019 15:53:51
the site tuttomercatoweb in italian has Milan having talks with agent of Lovren and having thought about Ajer. Ruour probably originates in Italy ok but they haven't looked at Ajer just thought about him. For me a bit like the story of the Equadorian who said might come to us only for Lennon to say he had no interest.

Now he's doing the post match team talk on the field after games ala Phil Brown.

Losing the plot altogether.


1.) 17 Aug 2019 19:11:42
It was as if we won a cup final it's really embarrassing.



17 Aug 2019 17:34:53
Wonder if it's everyone else's fault rather than Lennon today?




17 Aug 2019 09:23:47
Am I the only one that's annoyed with big Sutton for leaking transfer info?

All the big man will achieve if this doesn't go through now is to ramp up the bad feeling and tensions around the place.


1.) 17 Aug 2019 10:17:46
Tbf I don't think Sutton would have jeopardised his credibility making a statement like that. The deal is obv going ahead👍.

2.) 17 Aug 2019 10:27:29
mabe he is trying to take some heat away from his wee pal lenny.

3.) 17 Aug 2019 10:28:36
Agree with kev to be honest. sutton shouldn’t be coning out with stuff like that, especially when tensions between us and the club are running high! Like kev said it doesn’t happen then the anger just goes up more! Sutton should know better.

4.) 17 Aug 2019 10:58:46
Well if it doesn't happen then as had been said it causes more unrest and pressure on Celtic. Not to mention leaving Sutton with egg on his face and fans annoyed at him too.

5.) 17 Aug 2019 11:23:20
Going by what i have read, we could have the majority of the Norwegian defence by the close of this window.

6.) 17 Aug 2019 11:38:40
I just hope the Meling and elabellaoui do sign it would restore a bit of faith in Lawell and co.

Who else will Nick H be casting his eye over?

If there is a deal to be done for big Foster let’s get it done as well, Gordon will be leaving at some point and better to get someone in now before we are left short again.

Let’s get a good result today and get our heads back in the game.

Hail Hail 🍀💚.



16 Aug 2019 15:17:26
Has Lennon been on the gear?

We didn't deserve to go out?

Who is he trying to kid?


1.) 16 Aug 2019 15:23:42
He's always been a manager that sees a different game from the rest of us and unfortunately I think he believes his own version.

2.) 16 Aug 2019 15:38:03
Utter tripe from Lennon. How he can’t admit that playing mcgregor at LB was a mistake I’ll never know. Yes there were individual errors in each of the 4 goals but the tone for the night was set by him putting mcgregor at LB whilst keeping a £3 million LB that he signed on the bench the entire night. Can he not see that upsets the whole dimension of the midfield? He’s quick to point out that twice on the night we were in control of the tie but rather than make changes to make it harder for Cluj to get past us he continued to watch the shambolic defensive display. He’d rather hide behind the “ collective mistakes” than come out and admit he poxed it up.

3.) 16 Aug 2019 15:45:06
Garry it was like watch a car crash in slow motion.
Even if he had changed it at half time we would have went through and he'd probably be taking the applause for recognizing it wasn't working and fixing it.
He's deluded if he thinks that line up wasn't a factor.

4.) 16 Aug 2019 15:58:09
Aye collective mistakes but not any by him the way he's talking! he's a puppet for the board and this proves it beyond doubt for me . I wonder what the players think listening to that p**h, and I wonder if brown did accidentally like that tweet slaughtering Lennon.

5.) 16 Aug 2019 16:22:54
The man can't defend that. Shambles!

6.) 16 Aug 2019 16:24:52
We have a squad good enough to have sailed through game the other night. Even though bolingoli has been poor (hopefully still finding his feet) he would of made difference. McGregor should of been playing usual position.

Lennon euro record is abysmal, had it not been for sion fiasco we would not of seen European football for 3 seasons last tenure which raises a question. why did he get job?

7.) 16 Aug 2019 16:26:37
I counted 7 tactical errors in 1 game. It beggars belief.

8.) 16 Aug 2019 17:02:45
Total and uttter delusion! Actually quite frightening that he can’t see that playing McGregor at left back threw the whole shape of the team off and gave the mighty cluj encouragement and a foothold in the game! And he says we were rampant at 2-1 up! Forgive me but shouldn’t we be keepin things tight and not rampaging forward? Another bit of tactical genius! And bringing on Lewis Morgan to save the day I guess wasn’t his fault either I’m guessing! He’s lost the plot and I really fear for us by the way!

9.) 16 Aug 2019 17:05:00
Where does the criticism of the board come from?, Lennon has been given enough of a transfer kitty, get Brown out of the midfield and let the team thrive.

10.) 16 Aug 2019 17:59:03
The Board have sat on their hands for most of this window and any signings they have made are (poorer quality) replacements for guys who have left us and it was imperative to fill those positions.
The failed effort for Turnbull, gave us all optimism that the club was in fact looking to ADD quality and new dimensions to our play, however, since the failed medical, we have been ominously inactive in efforts to add more REAL quality or have a plan B for Turnbull.

11.) 16 Aug 2019 17:43:10
7 rayman? I got at least 9.

12.) 16 Aug 2019 19:13:45
OAB they gave Lennon 13 million worth of players and he leave 10 million of defenders sitting in the stand.
Yes they should have done more by now but Lennon hard been supplied with the tools to get us through this round.



15 Aug 2019 12:35:29
Celtic have spent £61.249m over the past five years. However, they received £102m in transfer fees over the same period, meaning the club’s net spend is -£39.501m or a surplus of £40.751m.

Board don't back managers?


1.) 15 Aug 2019 12:58:17
That's average £12m a season managers are spending on players, that's a lot of money. How much of that was wasted by managers signing players that were barry white? Funny how managers and fans blame the board for a managers failings.

2.) 15 Aug 2019 13:02:13
Agreed it’s not the money being spent that’s the problem it’s the recruitment that’s a joke imo.

3.) 15 Aug 2019 13:08:52
I think they include CL money in there coatings. when we don't make it in like the last 2 years we compensate by sell someone to recoup the money.
Its essentially a flawed business plan.
I think we will still bring players in. my gripe is not necessarily the amount we spend but the recruitment as a whole.
Shved. byoi. boli. jullien Connell who actually signed them.
NL didn't help himself on Tuesday but he pay the price for PLs need to see a big bank balance.
We they doing enough to help player recruitment. Getting them in early and settled in.
The answer is clearly no.

4.) 15 Aug 2019 13:58:33
John that's nonsense.
The simple fact is managers so all round football don't identify players to sign. Yes they have a say but not much

You think it was Lennon who signed wanyamma?

The comment about lawwel is nonsense as well.
Celtic spend most the money we earn. There is no massive bank balance. 30 million last accounts for a business that has 100 million turn over.
That ain t a lot.
Next account you can be sure it will be under 30 million.

5.) 15 Aug 2019 14:14:16
There seems to be a belief that Lawell and the 'Head of Recruitment' bring in the vast majority of these players without a managers advice or consent and that has to be addressed sensibly if we are to stop wasting money by bringing in unwanted or inferior players.

6.) 15 Aug 2019 14:17:25
Kev everyone on here speaks nonsense according to you.
Look in the mirror.
You actually think if all our bids had been accepted we would have spent over 20m. now that's nonsense.
Celtic will as normal come out this window in profit.

7.) 15 Aug 2019 14:21:01
OAB it's only fans that think this because they don't get how it works. Lennon has said several times he's involved with meetings about signings.

8.) 15 Aug 2019 14:50:56
What I said was fact jungle. We've bid about 19 million for players this season. That can't be denied.

We don’t blindly follow them right off a cliff.

John beaton is as bias as they come. Most of them are just rotten but he's a cheat.

For all the things Lennon has got wrong the last few weeks the ref ignoring a hand ball isn't one of them.

Same ref that ignored several assaults by moreles including a stamp on the back of our full back when he was 5 yards from it.

Jamie Fergus McCann was proved right. He said he would not risk our future to stop them win 9 or 10.
He said he was building us to not only survive but dominate for years to come.
He should be carried on our shoulders and Celtic booed him.
History repeating it's self?

Not for me. I might be vocal amongst fellow fans about how I feel about the manager not being right man for the job but I wouldn't do that again unless the club was at stake like last time.
Boycotts are for saving the club not changing a manager IMO.

Wanyama wasn't a central defender. His favourate position was centre mid though Lennon wanted him to be a cb but he quickly realised it wasn't going to work out.

Most teams are now playing left footers right and vice versa now a days.
