Atsu has turned us down and said he wants to fight for his place .


1.) 31 Jan 2020 18:33:47
Thank goodness for that, lad is rotten!



29 Oct 2019 19:01:16
With eddy being our only fit forward at the minute, should we risk him tomorrow evening? Big game Sunday and the return leg with Lazio coming up, griff will be a mile away from fitness, while Bayo doesn’t fill me with confidence, even when he’s fit .


1.) 29 Oct 2019 20:56:43
Sinclair can do a turn at CF and for me is better that Bayo.

2.) 29 Oct 2019 22:59:28
Yes, and there is that young Irish guy, he is going to be a star, I would just throw him into the first team now, either to play in a two at the front with Odsonne, or to come on in an easier game as a sub for Odsonne.

3.) 30 Oct 2019 06:00:04
He’s injured aindoh afolibi the Irish bhoy.

4.) 30 Oct 2019 11:15:29
Would like to see Sinclair start up front tonight.

5.) 30 Oct 2019 18:35:51
Bitton will maybe get a shot as makeshift striker.



13 Jul 2019 23:01:15
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.

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.

Personally I think we should have to pick up the season as soon as possible . If that means finishing the season at the start of next that’s what we have to do. It would mean a back log of games and obviously cancelling the euros.
Let’s be honest if they give us the league now, not only will it be an anticlimax the Rangers will never recognise it, they will say it will be another tainted title . As we are 13 points ahead, they will say they could potentially win both games and their game in hand and the gap would be four. In all honesty I would be saying the same thing if we were in their position.
The only definitive way to sort it out would be to finish whenever or however .


1.) 15 Mar 2020 12:42:13
I am now convinced the season will not be played to a finish at any stage. The Coronavirus is predicted to peak in the summer in the Uk and other European countries. Its not ideal but I think UEFA will crown Celtic Champions this week in line with the rest of Europe. In 1999 NATO were bombing Yugoslavia and the league was stopped 24 games into a 34 game season. Partizan Belgrade were only 2 points ahead and UEFA instructed the Yugoslavian FA to award Partizan the title.
I didn’t want to win it this way but as our manager said a wins a win and we deserve the title because we have proved we were the best team over 30 games and we showed that Celtic were the only team that had the bottle.9 In A Row this week. 👍.

2.) 15 Mar 2020 12:45:38
Whether we are awarded it now or if we have to see out the remaining 8 games the bottom line is Celtic are 9 in a row champions. What they say think or do I couldn’t care less. Facts are facts and we all know the truth. Zombies are banging on about how they can still catch us yet they are practically begging for the season to be declared null and void. That tell us everything we need to know.

3.) 15 Mar 2020 14:00:08
Not one gullible is shouting for the season to resume so "they can catch us", they all want it scrapped because they know they can't stop us on the park😂😂😂.

4.) 15 Mar 2020 15:11:52
100 percent correct, and banging on about sporting integrity, you have to laugh.

5.) 15 Mar 2020 16:08:06
They're praying it is cancelled so they can forever hold this against us saying it'll be an asterix on this seasons credentials. They've dropped 13 points out the last 10 games where as we've dropped 2. On what planet do they think they can overturn the league when they've still got us to play twice. The suspension has spared their blushes as they was going to get a hiding.

6.) 15 Mar 2020 22:32:59
The SPFL I think will look to play the remaining games. I do not see them having the bottle to declare the season void, as I would expect the Celtic board to legally challenge all the way to the court of arbr. for sport if this were to be the case - we are over 75% of the way through the season. Personally I would rather we pick up were we left off and play the games. This leaves the SPFL looking at a potential option of summer football then great I am not against that either. let's push to win this outright with integrity.



21 Feb 2020 09:24:42
With Christie suspended next week and brown probably out with the calf strain, what about playing Ajer in midfield with Jozo starting at centre back with Julian? If we are going with two up top it I’d go with cal Mac ntcham sitting with Rogic ahead .
Biton doesn’t do it for me to be honest at centre back or midfield.


1.) 21 Feb 2020 09:40:05
A lot of people would agree with that - except the manager and I think it will be between Biton, Rogic and Griff to fill both spaces.

2.) 21 Feb 2020 10:40:27
Doubt he will go 2 up top, prefer ajer and julien in defence with mcgregor and ntcham holding with rogic at number 10.

3.) 21 Feb 2020 11:14:21
The people clamouring for young ajer to be moved, you do realise that we are where we are (10 points clear and Europe after Xmas ) that this has happened with him at CB. He was always going to be a CB, just read or listen to his interviews, he is still learning his trade, first it’s Julien, then Taylor, now ajer that fans are going after, I’d hate to see the reactions if we weren’t where we are 👍

Ps, you do realise that we drew the game last night.

4.) 21 Feb 2020 12:50:12
Ajer is nowhere near good enough to be a top CM. So please can we just draw a line under that? We paid decent money for Soro. He should be playing.

5.) 22 Feb 2020 05:06:36
I didn’t realise Soro was in the euro squad as he’s only made the squad for us once. I wasn’t slagging off Ajer although he never had a great game but that happens. I was merely saying he could add physicality in midfield this week as we have lost brown and Christie, and for me biton isn’t the answer .



10 Feb 2020 07:46:51
Since we came back from the winter break, we have played really well . The break has done us the world of good, since the season started we have had a couple of poor performances ( cluj and sevco) but apart from that it’s been very good. Hats off to lennie, his back room team and the players. The squad all seem happy, I read a stat yesterday that we have already scored as many goals as we did last season, which shows the attacking intent from the whole set up.

The interesting thing for me now is what set up will lennie go for in the Europa? Will he still be brave and go with two up top, personally I would . If we are to go out, let’s go out fighting and looking to score a few, the option is always there to change it now in game time, and bring on Ryan Christie after an hour when teams are tiring a little . His energy could bring damage to many games and granted he deserves to start but then I don’t think ntcham deserves to be dropped .

Personally I feel when ntcham is on form he brings us something different to our midfield . Also his link up play with eddy is good. I think we are lucky to have both him and eddy playing for us, in a couple of seasons when they progress even higher with their careers we will appreciate the good scouting we had to get them both here. ( and moose) .

I can’t see a time where we have two or three top French under 21 year olds playing for us.


1.) 10 Feb 2020 09:37:23
I'll admit I was quite concerned with the way we were playing in the 4-2-3-1 formation at the turn of the year but the tweaked system is looking fantastic and I'd like to see us stick with it as long as the personnel are fit and firing. Ntcham on his game is absolutely unreal. He almost never loses possession, even in tight areas. Cool as a cucumber.

2.) 10 Feb 2020 11:08:36
I like Ntcham's physicality in the midfield 3 though Christie's energy and finishing offer something different. Would like to see us utilise the 352 but think we should mix it up sometimes to keep it fresh. Both Dembele and Edouard have been superb but I worry what happens with Edouard inevitably leaves? Surely Klimala isn't his replacement.

3.) 10 Feb 2020 11:09:59
It has been a fantastic season - so far - and even when we were a bit flat and tiring in December, we still kept winning - until the final game before the break.
Since Griffiths has come back, we are linking up play extremely well and seeing the best of Eddy, Cal-Mac and Forrest as well and
with the injuries starting to clear-up - plus new additions in the 'window' - the manager now has much more options to keep opponents guessing and also switch things up to suit game-by-game.
In Scott Brown, we have a player/ captain, that never ceases to amaze me with his appetite, commitment and influence; which suggests he looks more than capable of extending his Celtic career for another couple of seasons at least (if he stays injury free) . The only small concern I have is longer term and that concerns Frazer Forster; there's no doubt he has made a huge contribution to where we are at present and I really hope we can keep him?



05 Feb 2020 22:20:34
Eddy just gets better with every game, we are watching a special talent right now I think. I’d love him to sign a new contract and give us another year at least ( as like most here, fear he will be off in the summer ) . It’s funny now as the discussion over who is the best striker between eddy and him have completely subsided. Even the Rangers must know who is the better player 🍀.


1.) 05 Feb 2020 23:02:08
deserves to be wearing the 7 jersey.

2.) 05 Feb 2020 23:20:43
I seen on social media that Edouard could nutmeg a mermaid. 😂.



02 Feb 2020 14:21:48
Ignore my last message 🙈😂
The game changed when we brought on Ed’s favourite player 👀😂.


{Ed007's Note - Yeah Hayes did do well when he came on.}

1.) 02 Feb 2020 14:34:47
Hayes certainly made the difference when he came on, just what we needed.

2.) 02 Feb 2020 15:02:50
Wow amazing tactical change ntcham off. offers a lot not often enough Christie everytime glad he's back. He knows wher the goal is. Well Lenny and the bhoys.

3.) 02 Feb 2020 15:13:57
The game was crying out for more directness and pace, but I feel there is an apprehension and self inflicted mental-block, when it comes to these pitches. However, the substitutions (and I have queried these at times from NL) changed the game to reflect the difference in class and points between the two sides - even though Accies did cause our defense some problems and exploit a weakness.
Delighted with the win, the four goals and the three points; Well done NL and the team.

I was surprised to read Brady was 28 I thought he was much older.

Personally if we get anything over 13 million with a sell on he’s welcome to go. He has potential undoubtedly and I like his whole hearted ness but he’s by no means irreplaceable . He could be one of the players that regret moving from us .

Jonbhoy, I’d say he was a project as he’s only played 23 games since he went pro in 2017. Age isn’t a problem
for me, if we were going for a 21 year old that’s played regularly for a decent outfit. Maybe a decent standard under 21 player, even Soro who looks good . Lennie has said we may not see him much this season.

Another project 🤷‍♂️ What’s going on with us, where are these “oven ready “ players he kept talking about.

28 Jan 2020 09:13:19
I also think we need to get over the replacement for brown as well, the way I see it is that we have browny for this season and the next. If Soro is a hit he won’t be hanging around for 3/ 4 seasons so realistically he won’t be his replacement. At the time I wasn’t bothered about Mcginn going to Villa, but probably only a player like him who is a Tim would stick around with us for a decent amount of time. Any foreigner that signs will only be here for two three seasons at max.

Like all of us on here I’m gutted / annoyed about the result and performance from us the other night. However where people say we could have had a special euro run this year I’m not so sure. We just aren’t consistent enough when we step up to European level, there is always a chance of a “Cluj or Copenhagen “ type game within us. I know we beat Lazio this season but it was back to the wall stuff for us in both games at times and we got a last minute goal in each game. It’s always heart in the mouth stuff for us in Europe, where as years ago teams used to come to Celtic and feel intimidated now they seem to relish the atmosphere and perform better than normal.
Let’s not forget that Copenhagen are well behind mjittyaland who the Rangers beat easily in the qualifiers.
We just need to build on some of our performances this season and try and get more consistency, we can’t afford to play two decent half’s over a two leg game.
In fact I can’t remember the last game where we have played well for 90 mins .

Stevie, I totally agree with you regarding eddy. Unfortunately results like this are the reason he will be off in the summer. I think we have to enjoy him while we can, like the rangers defeat at new year he didn’t seem to hang around after the game, just headed off down the tunnel. I think he hates losing, which is a good trait although watching him this season, like van dijk before him he seems to have outgrown our team. And being honest he deserves to be showcasing his obvious talents at a better level than ours ( unfortunately ) . I’d love to see him for another season in the hoops though .

That was dire again in Europe, we didn’t have a clue how to break them down. Back to the old Rogers routine of just passing it across the back then lumping it. It was obvious they let our defenders have it, then pressed really quickly and we gave the ball back to them. I thought we turned a corner in Europe but we have just fell back into the usual performance when it matters. Jozo was awful tonight, the third goal where he just bounced through our whole defence was embarrassing.

Worryingly the reports are saying both brown and ntcham will not make it. Hope our misses don’t come back to haunt us from last week as potentially we could only have McGregor in there who is a regular midfielder . The report states we may start Rogic Bitton and calmac. If so I’d say that’s an area where Copenhagen will be attacking .
