News just broke that arsenal have offered £25 million for kt.


1.) 13 Jul 2019 23:19:26
Good money but would be heartbreaking to see him go, love KT, he deserves his big money move. Hopefully he’ll come back when he’s established himself as the best full back in the world 🍀.

2.) 13 Jul 2019 23:27:14
If it's true then it will be sad to see KT go if it happens. However the lad deserves his chance at a higher level and all the best to him. He will be valued at 50 million plus after a season in the EPL. Great money for the club too.

3.) 13 Jul 2019 23:45:55
Well if true it’s now up to Celtic and Tierney now Arsenal have match the price let’s see.

4.) 14 Jul 2019 00:36:56
A cracking fee for us. Yes a true Celt but what’s to say he will come back just as good? Take the money improve the squad all round and secure the 10 for the club and fans.

5.) 14 Jul 2019 00:52:53
will he pass a medical though?

6.) 14 Jul 2019 01:18:28
We seem too have gone quiet on the recruitment front since this deal has gone quiet as much as I don't want it too happen if it facilitates 4 of 5 first teamers coming in thenit has too happen 🙁.

7.) 14 Jul 2019 02:32:51
We all knew he would be going.
We paid £3m for Boli to start and not sit on the bench.

8.) 14 Jul 2019 05:01:18
Still reckon £25 million is too cheap, but that seems to be the figure branded that will make this move happen, so in that case unless it’s £25 million up front with add ons he wouldn’t be going anywhere. I do realise some will say £25 million is fantastic money, but 1 good season down there and tierney will be quoted in the £50 million bracket. The money going around down there us ridiculous so lawwell better stand strong in these negotiations and get the absolute best deal possible for him. I’m still a bit frustrated in players coming in ie a new RB. If this deal for tierney goes through I’m fully expecting another 3/ 4 quality signings to come in.

9.) 14 Jul 2019 06:12:19
I’m a bit gutted to be honest, I wanted him here for the ten. Like another poster said earlier, how can he pass a medical unless he is actually fit and just wasn’t training to push through a move. I can’t see how we were told he still can’t train due to the hernia op and now had the pubic bone problem to passing a medical potentially two days later 🤷‍♂️.

10.) 14 Jul 2019 06:36:50
Gutted if KT leaving.
Anyone think we could go back for Castagne again if we receive £25m for KT or has that ship sailed?

11.) 14 Jul 2019 08:10:48
I great loss for us but can't help thinking it's going to be tough for him at Arsenal. They won't be winning anything any time soon and could easily drop out top 6 this season. I can even see Judas being the one to do it. I hope he stays for another year and gets a better offer and doesn't feel this is his only option.

12.) 14 Jul 2019 10:01:48
guys i will be gutted if kt leaves. but i believe he will be leaving for more than we think. i believe he is leaving to ensure we get 10iar because with his transfer money we can now kick on to a different level. it will break this wee mans heart to walk away and i believe he WILL orchestrate the green brigade again. thanks wee man for giving your young life to our club and hurry back please. hail hail.

13.) 14 Jul 2019 10:31:29
Chances are he’s off, I appreciate the league is bigger and better and he quite possibly deserves the chance to improve himself. However I can’t quite see him running back up Wembley steps with blood pouring from his mouth with an arsenal shirt on, to celebrate with fans and team mates. He will never have what he has now with us, I think he knows that as well.

14.) 14 Jul 2019 11:51:49
I think too many people have jumped the gun previously with these rumours. I for one will take everything with a pinch of salt from now.
KT was apparently leaving for far less than what was quoted 3 weeks ago by the rags!
“The deal was imminent” as they said then it went quiet.
Now that a new supposed bid of “25m” is here every Celtic fan is getting worked up again. I don’t even believe it is 25 all up front. Again some probable derisory bid of 20+ add ons
Wouldn’t trust that shower of tam shankers in a million years to report the truth, so until Celtic confirm it I’ll not worry about it too much.

15.) 14 Jul 2019 14:28:42
Like everyone else I would be gutted to lose KT and until he actually goes I still have hope that he will stay for the 10. Surely 25m up front with add-ons only means that we would be willing to sell therefore Arsenal can speak with KT about a transfer but ultimately it is his decision whether to go or not as he has a contract with us.

16.) 14 Jul 2019 17:47:00
Rumours now circulating that Celtic have rejected Arsenal’s bid of “25m”
Again, across social media so many Celtic pages and supporters getting worked up about this without knowing all the details.
We, as a club, have stated we will only sell at what we believe is the correct price (which nobody actually knows apart from our board) and also have said that we don’t even need to sell.
In other rumours, KT has apparently told a friend he no longer wishes to speak to Arsenal and wants to stay at Celtic (so who really knows now? )
I’m going to go with my gut on this and I think the arsenal deal won’t happen. But if it does happen it will be the best deal for Celtic and the player possible.
Keep the faith HH.



20 Jun 2019 22:37:12
We are signing turnbull again😂.




26 Feb 2019 15:56:10
He’s gone with his staff but left us Lee congerton 😂.


1.) 26 Feb 2019 16:20:32
Wonder if he will let us extend benkovich loan.

2.) 26 Feb 2019 16:21:23
Says it all 😂

Though to be fair Congerton might be identifying good targets and the board aren't putting the money up. Who knows?

3.) 26 Feb 2019 16:28:29
And John Kennedy👍🏻.

4.) 26 Feb 2019 17:06:05
Glad he's left kennedy.

5.) 26 Feb 2019 17:25:07
He’ll take Benkovic and be back for Tierney and McGregor in the summer and why wouldn’t he? If he offers £40m for the pair Lawwell will bite his hand off as that will offset David Moyes failing to get us into the Champions League because that how Lawwell’s mind works unfortunately, I lay the blame for today’s event squarely at the Celtic board’s lack of ambition, it’s shocking!

6.) 26 Feb 2019 17:48:55
Kennedy needs to go too.

7.) 26 Feb 2019 18:28:13
Lawwell should be reviewing his role in this saga, but we all know he won’t . every time we have a successful manager he pisses them off, O’Neill, Strachan, Lennon and inflicted Mowbray and Deila on us, to me he is the problem here, he’s only interested in banking money and pocketing his obscene bonus not taking the club forward!

{Ed007's Note - Peter Lawwell is told what to do by the board.}

8.) 26 Feb 2019 19:17:27
Kev83 just out of curiosity why are you glad he left Kennedy?

9.) 26 Feb 2019 19:51:12
Because everything u have read or heard about him seems like he is a good coach.
Plus right now we need someone in there that has worked with these players.

10.) 27 Feb 2019 01:18:30
That’s my biggest fear if he comes in for Mcgregor Tierney or Forrest how could the board or the players turn down that money treble wages and about 40million.



21 Jan 2019 06:19:28
Linked today with a Porto right back called fonseca. He’s been loaned out a couple of times already and apparently is available for less than 2million. Haven’t seen him but if there’s any substance to it, it would seem we are well down our list of right backs. Started the window with talk of 6milion Belgian, then a 4 million Norwegian, now a 2 million under 21 player who can’t get in his own side .


1.) 21 Jan 2019 06:38:11
. and if Pedro succeeds with his usual plan, we will get someone in on loan for nowt.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 06:39:34
Quinn1888, I love your positive outlook. lol
We'll just have to wait and see who comes in. HH.

3.) 21 Jan 2019 08:07:21
Only 21 and Militao who is currently being chased by Real is Porto's main RB and has played every game for them this season so not surprised the lad can't in the team.

Report said Juve were looking at him in the summer, if true the lad must have something about him. Lad's contract is coming to and end which would explain low value.

4.) 21 Jan 2019 08:55:23
Have a look at his Wikipedia account. A celtic fan seems glad we are after a eight back haha.

5.) 21 Jan 2019 09:41:22
The Belgians club are quoting 10 million for him and he said he wants to play in one of the top leagues.
The Norwegians club have said he's going no where. So I fail to see how that's lawwels fault.
Isn't that the whole point of having a list?

6.) 21 Jan 2019 10:04:57
Just because it's rumoured doesn't mean it's true. We might never have been after the Belgian. We will see who is in come end of the window then we can moan or praise the signings.

7.) 21 Jan 2019 10:20:48
The £6M Belgian was struggling to get into his own side not so long ago Quinn. This obsession with transfer fees is baffling. We've already shown that if the value is there, the club are willing to spend good money. Tbh from any clips etc I've seen I think Elabdellaoui looks much better than Castagne but that's only YouTube I suppose.

8.) 21 Jan 2019 11:51:28
We’re never going to pay £6m for a right back, nor would we pay £4m for a 28 year old. £2m for a former U-21 aligns with our transfer policy.

9.) 21 Jan 2019 15:44:33
I agree with you Kev Bhoy regarding the Norwegian, from the boys I’ve seen he seems to be the better option. With regards to them saying they don’t want to sell, realistically what does that mean nowadays . We didn’t want to sell loads of players but if a buying club puts up the money we and the majority of clubs around all change their mind. If we really wanted him we may have to pay what they want within reason.

10.) 21 Jan 2019 16:17:07
Exactly quinn within reason but if a club ain't willing to sell then it takes big money to get the player.

11.) 21 Jan 2019 16:31:11
Quinn and Kev, from the paper talk it would appear that someone, somewhere thought, or was told, Castagne was worth about €6M. Then all of a sudden Lazio, Fiorentina etc. are "interested" and then the price is €10M. If any of this is actually true but none of these other teams bid then that price may well drop again. I did read something saying the player himself was pretty uninspired by the idea of playing in Scotland - again though, God knows who these "sources" actually are.

12.) 21 Jan 2019 18:39:18
Wouldn't mind us going for someone like Petar Stojanovic at Zagreb. Big Benko could sell him on a move and wouldn't cost too much. Remember him doing well against us while at Maribor.



06 Jan 2019 08:33:28
Ed, you may have spoken about this before but can you or someone else explain who sets up the transfer deals . Say for instance, the forward we are linked with . We bid 1.7 million, we obviously scout him but who sets his value? Is it Rogers saying don't go above 2 million, or Congerton. Or would it be Lawwell ( who has been accused of penn pinching loads of times ) . If Brendan wants him could he say just pay what they want? For some reason we take ages to get players over the line, I’m sure i read we had a deal in place for Odsonne at first with PSG, let the time pass then they increased their value .


{Ed002's Note - I can't explain for Celtic but I can tell you how other clubs decide. The scouting staff will prepare reports on players and provide an idea about price; coaches will look at the players but have no idea about price; they will go to a Director of Football (or perhaps a mix of the finance director and others responsible for the monies) and say we would like this player and we think he will cost £x. Checking against available budgets, the club will likely approach his agent to ask if the player might be interested in the move and a broad idea about the package the player would want, and any broad idea about what the club would want - and what terms they may be open to (cash up front, spread over a year etc.). This sits inside the overall transfer process which looks something like this:
The process should be along the lines of: Clubs will typically informally ask an agent (a) if the player is going to be available, and (b) would the player consider a move to the club. There may be some broad discussion on the sort of deal that would be offered but no more than that. If the answer is yes, it is then necessary for the club to approach the player's club to ask if they would be willing to sell and if they would grant permission to speak to a player's agent formally about a transfer and possibly even the player about actually making a move. This will typically involve either broadly (through an offer) or actually agreeing a fee and responsibility for any significant costs (agents fees etc.). Once this has happened the club will be able to speak to the player's agent and perhaps the player himself to look at the package that will be involved. Many players are looked at and discussed at a high-level with agents and clubs; a subset of those have an offer placed; a subset of those involve discussions with the player's club; a subset of those involve discussions over terms, and; a subset of those go ahead.

Agents will often try and get more specific details of wages and other financials before they should - but most clubs are happy to follow this process. Players will often talk to other players about moves but, whilst wrong, is tolerated as it would be impossible to manage.

Alternatively, a selling club may ask an agent to find a new club for a player and he will talk directly to poetntial selling sides about the fee, personal terms and interest.

The rest of the time agents will be on fishing trips trying to find interest in their players.

In terms of what happens when the negotiations take place, broad agreement (player available and open to discussions, understanding of the price) will already have been reached. The clubs will meet to discuss the details of the transfer fee, other costs associated with the move and the structure of the payments and any additional fees (e.g another €5M for winning the Champions League etc.) but this does not take a "few days".}

1.) 06 Jan 2019 20:06:05
So for the likes of Dembele Ed, have you any idea how much Celtic would have received up front. I'm assuming Lyon wouldn't pay all £20m or whatever it was all at once? In other words, how much do Celtic have in the pot?

{Ed007's Note - The Dembele fee was paid in full after Lawwell played hardball.}

2.) 06 Jan 2019 20:52:48
Isnt that pretty unusual? But means we have £20m in the bank to splash on a striker, cb and rb is pretty useful haha.

{Ed007's Note - Yes it's unusual but after Dembele's antics Lawwell wanted to get a dig back at them and that was it - he could leave if Lyon stumped up the fee up front which really was putting the ball back in their court, if Lyon refused it would be their fault the transfer didn't go through and Dembele would probably still be a Celtic player.}

3.) 06 Jan 2019 21:50:15
Good old pistol pete.

4.) 06 Jan 2019 22:45:44
So with all that said and now done Well done Mr Lawwell but we know need a replacement thanks MR Lawwell hopefully.

{Ed007's Note - I say it again and again, you can't fault Peter Lawwell for the money he brings into the Club, it's when it comes to spending it there's a problem.}

Well that was pretty dire, got exactly what we deserved.




29 Aug 2019 22:28:21
Any chance of benkovic in for the season, we could do with him now. Especially for Sunday . Not quite sure about lennies resolute defending comment. Against better sides they will take some of the chances we give teams.




29 Aug 2019 18:32:03
Our defence is worrying going into Ibrox the amount of chances we give, don’t stop crosses and pick up players through the centre.


1.) 29 Aug 2019 18:50:04
Sick ajars going to be out aswell at least wee look dangerous in attack!

2.) 29 Aug 2019 19:02:26
Our defending has been awful we never learn stop the cross and we need another player in middle although tie is over.

3.) 29 Aug 2019 19:26:06
Going to be bitton in there at Ibrox nightmare.

4.) 29 Aug 2019 19:16:24
Our defending, or should I say lack of it is a massive worry for not just Sunday but the whole season! The space beteeen the fullbacks and the centre halfs is scary! Ajer must and I mean must be kept at centre back at all times!



20 Aug 2019 20:52:36
Cluj look average at best, Prague don’t look like world beaters either . Just hammers it home how much a missed opportunity it was 🤢.


1.) 20 Aug 2019 21:50:04
Spot on Quinn. I've sat and watched the last 10 or so minutes and all I've done is make myself annoyed. We should have had enough to get past both these teams.

2.) 20 Aug 2019 21:52:01
Agreed where did our team go to I can't understand it first game they could beat anybody then that?

3.) 20 Aug 2019 22:08:31
Ajax struggled big time to.

4.) 20 Aug 2019 22:16:02
Just makes me even angrier when I think about it to be honest! Our boards utter incompetence has seen us miss out on 25 million for 2 seasons in a row, it really is that simple! But at least we brought in a couple of players to make up for the cluj disaster and give us a boost to try and at least make the EL! Aww naw wait a minute that didn’t happen either! Pathetic!

5.) 20 Aug 2019 22:55:35
Porto went out in last round. Were not alone just threw it away a bit.



19 Aug 2019 10:37:36
The way I see it, we started off the season well. We were then found out in the European tie, which personally I thought was inevitable either that round or against Prague . The people are definitely stronger and with all this negativity it only feeds them and makes them stronger.

Was I happy Neil got the gig, no but he has so we can only back him. I was pleasantly surprised with our attacking intent in the first few games, we aren’t where we all wanted to be regarding the champions league but it’s gone. I think Lawell, lennie and to an extent the players are to blame for different reasons.

Like I said earlier, the people have thrown everything into stopping us this year,
It wouldn’t surprise me if they still get Kent now their window has shut.
We are in a position to shut all this down within the next two weeks. It’s down to Lawell and the board to back lennon, regardless of what’s been spent, we need more.
The window of opportunity is rapidly closing so we need to be proactive for once, if we need to over spend on a fee, or on wages so be it.
The 9 is more important now to us, if we fail with money in the bank it will be gut wrenching .

If we were to get in the two Norwegian full backs we won’t be in a position scrambling around pre season next year looking for loads of players but this season is important. We can snatch back the position from rangers if Lawell backs the club and fans for once. Could you imagine the celebrations if they stopped us. Sky and other media outlets are frothing at the mouth over them and they haven’t won anything . Give the fans something back for once before it’s too late .


1.) 19 Aug 2019 11:07:17
You mean Lennon was found out in Europe. The players are clearly raging he publicly blamed them for his failure to manage a champions league game. Lennon has lost the dressing room it's time for him to go👍.

2.) 19 Aug 2019 11:54:50
How do you know this you are not the dressing roomy ou are panicking he'ss not lost the dressing room. Let's get Thursdays game with a win and defeat hearts. It was the players on the pitch who lost the game we could not put the ball in the net to many chances fluffed same as Dunfermline game should have been strong enough. We started slow last season to fans moaning not enough tempo but lucky for us the rest of the team's in Scotland started slow. We are attacking teams breaking them down playing better football we could not do this under Rodgers. We are just not putting the ball in the net which gives others teams hope. Give it a few more weeks we will have more games behind us the team's we are playing have played more games than us we have new style of play new players new manager it takes time. Two great league wins at the start hard fought win over Dunfermline still in the Europa League what are you want we are in a really strong position to keep building on yes we need a few more player but Celtic FC know this let's see what happens after sundays game against hearts then judge but we need to be assertive middle of park throwing our weight around.

3.) 19 Aug 2019 11:58:44
Hey not much talk bout brow not on the field not on the bench was not mention during the game. Imo we attack more when he is not there Lenny know this. If we could get a young broony who attacks and can give that killer pass who can fight kick etc and one more striker I would be happy. As I think the midfield is missing one more holding midfielder who tidys things up. Come on Thursday let's get behind the lads make some noise.

4.) 19 Aug 2019 12:27:14
Nope it was Lennon that lost the champions league tie and because he had a cheek to blame the players they have lost all respect for him hense the awful performance against Dunfermline👍.

5.) 19 Aug 2019 12:45:13
We tried to get him Guru but he failed his medical.

6.) 19 Aug 2019 21:03:31
Ye bravetart
True. What's the latest on Turnbull's operation.
Arsenal took Tierney £30 mill risk we did not risk 3 million plus. If this guy has a full recovery and gets game time. Does our medical staff have to be looked at. ?

Three great buys really, eddy, moose, Ntcham . It’s unusual for us to pick up under 21 French players, been nice if we could have held onto the moose a bit longer and used that connection to bring in a few more young players from France . Hopefully it will be a market we can keep involved with, if these lads are anything to go by.

I don’t see how it was fake news, the comments were said by the manager. After every euro game he came out and said he wanted players in but never got them. He said he or they had a contingency plan if kt left, it would seem playing calmac there was the plan. I know people can go overboard but I can’t see how people don’t realise we go through this scenario every transfer window. Why is it that we have to sit back and relax and see what happens at the end o of the window. My trust in the board to deliver has gone unfortunately .

If pl would allow a football person to come in beside him and he stayed on the business side that would be good. I just don’t think he would hand over the reins that easy, also his bonus etc is linked to the football business making a profit . It would only be arguments all the time as the football side would be asking for better players, Peter would be wanting to keep costs down . Not sure how it would work.

I read on another site, it’s a loan deal . This window is getting worse, signing players no one has heard from, and now they are loan deals. What is going on at our club? It’s embarrassing .
We have been fed so much crap this window it’s unbelievable. Lies after lies
Players will be in before champions league qualifiers : never materialised
We have a plan if kt is sold : nothing materialised
We will wait and use the English market once it’s shut : only Fraser on loan
We will have two players in by today : nothing again.
And on and on we go, meanwhile the window is closing on us. We all know the people will get Ryan kent and it will be another boost to their morale, while we sell off or let our defence leave without replacing them properly . Look to push out one of our biggest goal threats . If we sign only loans, Peter makes his profit, I wish he would be asked to leave, get someone in who puts the team first before profits and hotel ideas . We are a football club, where fans travel far and wide to support . Myself included, I’m really not bothered what hotel I stay at.

I’d take a couple of seasons where we got the odd beating if, we used the money wisely and built a team towards not being embarrassed . Follow the likes of Ajax, they spend more than us regularly but reinvest again with future stars. Plus keep building the academy because even with the champions league money, we would still be dwarfed by the figures that go to the prem and the other big leagues. Unfortunately we don’t invest everything, we prefer to keep the balance sheet looking good .

I’ll be the first to admit Lennie wasn’t my original choice to take over, the end of last season was stuffy football and like others I thought he was the cheap option. Apart from the hole Cluj game I have been really impressed. For the first time in a while we are showing everyone the gulf in standard of squad we have to everyone else. Scoring an average of three goals a game this season is great considering the amount of games we have played already.

The squad look happy, and where we were crying out for players in certain positions we now seem to have two strong ones for each . Keeping the squad happy will be important but bringing in players for various games, now that Lennie knows they don’t necessarily weaken us will stand us in good stead. It will be interesting next week to see how much we have improved when we face Cluj at home. Well done to the squad and manager though so far.

I haven’t seen Hayes have a bad game at left back for us, gives his all every time he’s called upon. Doesn’t seem to be groaning at the lack of game time, squad seem to really like him . Just because we signed Taylor doesn’t mean we have to put him straight in ahead of Hayes . Boli, has played better recently especially at Ibrox but he seems to be caught up the pitch too much when his passing goes astray . We can probably get away with it domestically but in Europe he can be picked off with that type of mistake.
