With baby lawell going last month and his head of scouting, is there any rumours or news of them being replaced. Surely we need someone in with fresh eyes asap as we obviously need to replace quite a few players in the next window. The most part of why he was pushed out was that players he had put forward were not good enough, so it would surely be silly for the club to still work on his list of potential signings. I would like us to possibly look to someone like the lad rangers got from Holland, someone with a complete new list of targets . Dutch teams always seems to find players and it’s a market that isn’t too overinflated in price. Either way we need to find someone quick in my opinion.

Hopefully the loss of ML will mean the manager has a bit more autonomy in the summer regarding transfers.

2.) 24 Mar 2024 17:19:05
Daddy L will just give his mate Duhan a call.

But seriously, we need to get a DOF in pronto, and someone that will be here after BR is gone.
It's crazy that every time a manager leaves, we go into meltdown.

Did haskabanovic turn down paok as we agreed a few of 1.7 million for him then we loaned him? We had the chance to recoup our initial outlay ?‍♂️.


1.) 02 Sep 2023 14:02:22
If he does well we might make more.



26 Jul 2023 06:24:38
Rumours breaking last night on Twitter that we are still keen on the Croatian keeper who after a week, still hasn’t signed for Fenerbahce. App we are looking at a larger up front fee for him. Personally I’d welcome this even though Joe has been great for the team and squad for the last two years, I feel his better saves are becoming less regular as he’s ageing .


1.) 26 Jul 2023 11:11:12
On the back of rocki signing get him in.

2.) 26 Jul 2023 14:50:14
Other reports say we aren't interested.

3.) 26 Jul 2023 15:09:43
I've read that but don't understand what the point would be in us offering them a bigger up-front fee if they've already accepted a bid from Fenerbahce.

4.) 26 Jul 2023 15:38:21
Would love this goalie, but can’t see it.

5.) 26 Jul 2023 15:55:21
naw were no.



07 Jun 2023 15:29:52
A new name has landed at second favourite with the bookies, with photos of him at Glasgow airport.
Des Buckingham, the manager of the giants who are Mumbai . Surely this has to be a joke.


1.) 07 Jun 2023 15:45:50
Literally just looked him up Quinn. No thanks. Even more leftfield than Ange was.

2.) 07 Jun 2023 15:55:38
Compared to the giants that are Yokohama F. Marinos?

3.) 07 Jun 2023 15:57:48
Maybe Kennedy replacement! the city group seem to have a big part to play in celtic.

4.) 07 Jun 2023 15:59:51
Apparently won their league with a record points and goal tally I heard. Very high risk but it wouldn't break the bank which is the board all over. A lot more of these cropping up that ain't very overwhelming.

5.) 07 Jun 2023 16:00:41
Surely that can’t be true, ange was unheard of by most but if you looked him up he had years of experience, including as a national team manager . This lad has barely been an assistant and had a season in Mumbai . With all the managers available surely this can’t be the best we could do if true.
We were supposed to have 30 million to spend to bring is up another level, could you imagine the club doing that with him.

6.) 07 Jun 2023 16:43:22
It better not be total embarrassment.

7.) 07 Jun 2023 16:47:08
Assistant! .

8.) 07 Jun 2023 17:18:54
My brother is saying he is being considered as assistant to marresca.

9.) 07 Jun 2023 17:19:25
Would imagine if he’s in Glasgow for talks would be for assistant. Makes me feel like maresca will be manager and someone will come in as director of football. The city group link grows. Don’t know why we would be speaking to him for assistant before we appoint a manager….

{Ed007's Note - It's being reported he is in Glasgow to visit friends and it's nothing to do with any job at Celtic.}

10.) 07 Jun 2023 17:21:20
If Man Unt'd had went for Fergie, before he went to Aberdeen, I wonder how that would have turned out.

11.) 07 Jun 2023 17:41:42
Thanks for the update Ed. Hope you’re coping with all the rumours going around.

{Ed007's Note - It's still pretty tame & sane - well apart from the Phil Neville one ? - but I think it's going to be a busy summer and it's great to see some new posters on the forum, welcome aboard to you all ??

12.) 07 Jun 2023 18:12:12
Here's a good one for you @Ed007, Alan Thompson is suggesting Henrik Larsson.

{Ed007's Note -


13.) 07 Jun 2023 19:12:18

{Ed007's Note - ??

14.) 07 Jun 2023 20:56:53
Wee Joe Larsson must be a free transfer again this season surely ed? so perfect double act.

{Ed007's Note - Jordan Larsson has 2 years to go on his deal at Schalke 04 but he's been on loan at FC Copenhagen.
Moussa Demeble is available on a free.}

15.) 08 Jun 2023 11:53:48
If kyogo went I would take big moussa back.



10 Jan 2022 14:21:42
With the news filtering through that the Aussie has signed, now we are reporting that a bid for an Iranian forward has been rebuffed, but we are going back in for him .
Point 1 is where are we going to fit in al these forward thinking players
Point 2 is who are we selling to level the spending up a bit?


1.) 10 Jan 2022 14:48:13
I was thinking the same. Doesn't look good for us signing Jota permanently IMO.

2.) 10 Jan 2022 15:25:56
These players are costing nothing compared to the outlay for Jota and CCV -
If we move 3 or 4 players out, our net spend will be less than £10 Million.

3.) 10 Jan 2022 15:35:00
They're different players there's no huge outlay and we have been cursed all season with Injuries, better having too many as not enough.

4.) 10 Jan 2022 15:56:52
It's worth remembering the size of the squad rebuild that Ange faced in the summer and I'm delighted he's wasted no time in continuing this.

The J-League bhoys combined cost was less than 2.5M.

Barkas, Bolingoli, Soro, Ajeti will hopefully be moved on soon. Tunrbull is out for the foreseeable and for months we've been saying how poor the bench is.

I've also read that we were close to completing a deal for Jota - hopefully that goes through.

☘ ? ☘ ? ☘.

5.) 10 Jan 2022 16:12:20
I totally agree mally as we have been crippled with injuries, just not sure where they are all going to fit in. I don’t think we are signing these as we aren’t getting jota by the way, maybe ange is seeing a couple of the Japanese lads might need a bit of time to settle in and was potentially easing them in for next season.
Either way hopefully when qualifiers come around we won’t be searching around for players as most have been signed this season.

6.) 10 Jan 2022 15:45:55
Jota will sign. What player have we signed that can play Jota position.

7.) 10 Jan 2022 16:32:31
We don't really work on net spend we work on amortization. With everyone we have at the moment our annual amortization sits at £14.5m APPROX. If we get rid of Soro, Ajeti, Barkas and Boli. We reduce this by £3.4m per season. Interestingly with Jullien entering the final year of his contract we would reduce this by a further 1.5m if he resigns.

Given the historical accounts we seem happy with the amortization figure being between 13-15.5m per season. So if needed i think we still have a few quid we could spend.

8.) 10 Jan 2022 16:33:29
I should have mentioned the £14.5m figure incorporates Jota, CCV and McGree as permanent transfers.

9.) 10 Jan 2022 16:48:24
I honestly think they are planing life without Forrest and going to bin Mikey Johnstone nobody is safe no matter how long you've been at the club Ange clearly wants players that can step up and be called on right now Forrest and Johnstone are bringing nothing to the table right now in the way of injury prone or just under performing it's not got anything to do with not signing Jota on a permanent basis Ange wants his own lads in.

10.) 10 Jan 2022 17:25:02
I really hope we can and will get Jota and CCV on permanent contracts. And we do have something like 35 players now if that happens but there is a few that shouldn't be at the club and I hope we can shift them out in this window.

11.) 10 Jan 2022 18:24:04
I don’t really think we could bin Forrest AND Johnston. We need 4 homegrown and 4 association players in our 25 man Euro squad or we lose a place.

At moment we have

Welsh - if we don’t sell currently qualifies as B squad but won’t next year


Bain - who arguably time may be up

So we’re pretty thin on the homegrown players. And from the looks not sure if we have anyone ready to make the big step in the B team and don’t think there much association talent within our reach. I thought Hickey may have been a good answer but way out our price range now.

12.) 11 Jan 2022 00:17:01
Tbhoy - another reason to bring Ferguson in? Lad would add a bit of steel to the midfield.

13.) 11 Jan 2022 07:03:30
We fit some in 1st half and some in second half. allowing us to play fast pace for 90 mins

Nearly every game i've watched we've blasted teams for at least 30 mins in 1st half with not much goal penetration, exception hibs away. we seem to naturally take a dip in levels during game also.

If these players can do whst ange wants then we have a bench capable of coming on and frightening teams when 1st 11 is hitting the natural dip in energy levels. not to mention cover for the injuries our intensity of play can cause.

14.) 11 Jan 2022 13:40:01
I think McGree if he comes will add steel and pace to our midfield, we don't need Ferguson imo.

Does anyone think a conversation needs to be had regarding McGregor . Apart from the ibrox game early in the season, I’m finding it difficult to remember a really good game he’s had . Whilst he has been a great servant to Celtic, approaching 31 and with the amount of games he puts his body on the line for us with, could he be starting to slow up?
When we play. European level teams he struggles to break up play and defend play as it’s not his natural role.
Do we need to move him forward a bit with a proper mobile defensive midfielder behind him or do we start using him more sporadically to get the best out of him? I feel he needs to be playing regularly to keep his tempo up as we have seen recently with his performances .
Or is it in fact not a position we need to look at imminently with the other positions we need to improve on more important? Or I is he just having an average season and it’s noticeable as he normally is one of our better players and this season has dipped?


1.) 29 Apr 2024 13:34:04
It’s the most important position on the pitch in my opinion. As soon as Iwata came on yesterday all the pressure on our back line was almost mitigated. It’s been the same all season, he is an empty shirt at the moment and shouldn’t play again this season.

Give the man a rest and see where he is at in pre-season. Have to remember he will be away to the euros as well.



20 Apr 2024 12:03:28
At the minute the season is turning back in our favour, and obviously we are putting our feelings to one side for a bit. But was there not strong rumours that lawell was meant to be leaving, ? He’s prob kept his head down, hoped it turned around and will carry on. For us to move to a higher level we need him gone . We need more modern thinking people on our board not the dinosaurs that we have and I’d hate for us winning the league to gloss over the way they treat fans .


1.) 20 Apr 2024 12:10:56
So is Lawwell getting the blame for potentially winning a double?.



08 Feb 2024 07:21:49
Two terrible teams going for the title this year, let’s be honest it’s a different narrative from the press regarding sevco, but they aren’t exactly hammering teams with some lovely brand of football. Just arm the press aren’t highlighting it as they never do and their fans are behind them so they are playing without pressure. We know they fold if we can turn around the pressure onto them. But like I say both teams are poor.




01 Feb 2024 06:56:45
I can’t wait to hear that January is a tough month to bring players in, we were close on a couple of really good players but the selling club changed their minds at the last minute, but we are already working towards the summer market and have started to put work in behind the scenes .


1.) 01 Feb 2024 10:17:01
Brendan already towing the party line with his comments.



31 Jan 2024 12:22:40
I really can’t work out how we went from supposedly offering ange our biggest transfer pot to keep him to borrowing a Norwich reserve forward .
We were probably one season and three decent signings from being a really good side that could have competed in europe ( Europa level) to a side that has been allowed to regress to a pale shadow of what it was 6 months previous. Rogers can be to blame for some of the football played, yes but he has already stated the players signed in the summer were already far down the line of signing, if he comes out and says Kuhn and idah are his signings he can be judged on that . But really this again falls on the board, and the transfer team we have supporting the manager .


1.) 31 Jan 2024 12:39:51
I can remember it being mentioned last year, that Celtic would be better prepared for our CL campaign this season.
This season has been nothing short of Sabotage.

2.) 31 Jan 2024 12:44:36
Hope its the board that get any abuse and not the boy idah.

3.) 31 Jan 2024 12:45:09
Idah in onloanno buy option meanwhile hoydonk to Norwich on loan with an option. me neither.

4.) 31 Jan 2024 12:50:58
I posted something similar DRB but it’s not appeared yet.

Apart from doak, Robertson how many have left our reserve / young sides and have gone on to anything special. Very few which shows:
a : they are not as good as they think they are or being told they are by their reps
B : our youth set up is not very good as we rarely produce players good enough for our first team for a consistent period, we regularly get beaten off most of the European teams in tournaments.
If he wants to go then so be it, but as a caveat I would have liked us to get the best possible coaches for the youth set up as well as prominent positions in the club . No disrepecrt but if Darren o dea and Steven McManus are the best two youth coaches around I’d be surprised. This promoting from with needs to change if we are to progress.
The new chief scout/ director of football will probably be from within as well.

I’d like to see lagerbielke ad well, unfortunately it will be Welsh, feel for him really . Blocked his move in January and then processed to drop him out of squads, all the time when he hasn’t been that bad for us, apart from the euro game where he was sent off.

Hopefully the team give him the send off he deserves with a double. He was a massive player for us over the last few seasons, whilst not claiming he’s the best keeper we have ever had, his commitment and drive for the team cannot be underestimated .
To come to Scotland and take a massive wage hit and be away from his family was a great sacrifice .
He is a massive leader in the team, one which will need to be replaced, which won’t be easy .

I think they will be give him 20-25 to spend,
Then sell o Riley thus weakening us again. And break even on the spend . Tell us that they are working on players, couldn’t quite get them over the line but the work had already started for the January window.
Shortly followed by January is a notorious hard market to buy quality players .
Sadly we will never step up another level whilst we sell our best players constantly . Or am I being too cynical ??.

Definitely need quite a few new players, with pace and physicality. We have so many free kicks and corners especially domestically and we are not even a threat.
So much so that you basically know we aren’t going to score. I said in a previous post about us hiring a dead ball specialist, arsenal done it and have scored more from set plays than any other team. Normally a massive chance to get a goal especially for us in Europe if we are playing against better players.

Completely agree Once a bhoy, my view is clearer . If the board don’t want to alter the mindset regarding fees for players then get out of the way, and let the club modernise.
Whilst being successful recently we could have pushed on further, especially in Europe, our spending model needs to change. I’d say without doubt now we will spend circa 20-25 million in the close season, and then sell o Riley to negate it.

Be lovely for them to drop points today so we can win it but basically we win next week it’s done. That would be us 6 clear with two to go then no one could see us losing both games .
It would be pretty much done but it would be nice to be able to win it next week and be crowned champs, baldemort would explode.
