Leeds reportedly sniffing around Leo hjelde, who was on loan at Ross county last season. By all accounts he has the potential to be a great player, hopefully ange has a chat with him and tells him he’s going to get a chance with us. Lately we have lost quite a few young players to big sides so they must see something in them. We need to stop this trend especially as we can’t really afford to buy top level young players.


1.) 17 Jun 2021 21:53:33
He'll be the next young player we lose going by the last year.

2.) 17 Jun 2021 22:24:07
We are in such a state these days; unable to attract a big-nam manager, hold on to our better players and many of our 'projects and prospects' looking elsewhere to further their careers. It has never been so apparently obvious that we need to repair and boost our reputation and traditions or things will get much worse.

3.) 19 Jun 2021 09:35:43
If young Leo is half as good as people say, we have to tell Leeds to bolt.



05 Jun 2021 11:43:31
Some decent free contracts from the prem been released. King on a free, poss ayew from Swansea ( I know they aren’t in the prem) and if dreams could be achieved, Fernandinho, even at 35 would be class if we could get him to drop 150 grand in wages 😂.


1.) 05 Jun 2021 13:11:27
Ayew on £80k p/ W. Was mentioned during play off.

2.) 05 Jun 2021 14:04:30
Really Hugo? For that I’d def say no then. Just goes to show the gulf in wages between us and some championship sides .

3.) 05 Jun 2021 14:38:00
You wouldn't want Ayew. Rotten.



18 Apr 2021 13:24:42
Anyone else heard rumours griff is starting as eddy and Forrest are out?




07 Aug 2020 23:34:19
Is this a new story of griff where he’s had a party at his house or an old one to cause him more trouble, surely after getting himself back in shape he wouldn’t hold a house party especially after lennon told them all about their responsibilities as club employees .
It’s all over twitter tonight,
Loads of fans are saying that’s him finished and he doesn’t have a future now .


1.) 08 Aug 2020 06:37:12
Looks like a new one. his daft mrs put up photos then quickly deleted them. I just don’t get people and social media these days. Love sticking themselves in cause they can’t wait to put a photo on insta. I mean he coulda had has party no put any photos up and no one woulda been any the wiser lol. If this is true though I think he’s done with Celtic.

2.) 08 Aug 2020 08:58:22
This is probably why we are looking to bring in two strikers; as he never seems to learn - or just doesn't want to?

3.) 08 Aug 2020 09:16:48
On his day griff is brilliant but there has to come a time when enough us enough. The club and fans stood by him during his depression you would think he would want to repay that trust. If he doesn't want to do that then it has got to be goodbye. If we get ajeti and Fletcher then we are covered anyway. Unless Lenny has already told him he is finished then maybe that's why he had the part as he couldn't careless. Only he knows why.

4.) 08 Aug 2020 09:29:16
Very compassionate " The club and supporters stood by him during his depression "

5.) 08 Aug 2020 10:27:28
Aye, see banter thread where I was ridiculed for my baby shower story

When it's closer to home and not east of the A9 or south of the clyde we switch to . shouldn't have put the photos on INsta .

This season will be crazy bonkers.

Apparently when this party was on he was in his room and the image of him on a mobile bucking bronco was a malleable cardboard cut out and the bottle of beer was fake.

6.) 08 Aug 2020 12:47:12
Simply put

Griff isn't the brightest . gets caught in the moment. like an excitable pup . not his fault that he doesnf have the capability to strive for maturity, discipline and reliability

Its s shame coz when he is in the zone he can be very useful.

7.) 08 Aug 2020 13:19:25
Hes trying the clubs patience on the whole its not too bad si ce he was at his own home but he realky should be comcentrating on his career.

8.) 08 Aug 2020 13:51:15
If its true that it's new Then it's sad a real good player but can't sadly see him coming out of this a Celtic player. I hope it's old pictures.

9.) 08 Aug 2020 15:18:49
Tony. its Griff being Griff. the only issue is that Celtic have moved on to another level in terms of expectation and professionalism and griff hasn't. simples.

10.) 09 Aug 2020 19:31:14
It isn't an old one his girlfriend put pictures on Instagram of friends in the house then deleted some.

Fed up with Griffiths to be honest I honestly think we should just cut ties and get rid of him, all it would have taken is for him to catch the virus off someone that was there then bring it into training, even if nobody did have the virus he still broke distancing rules and the potential was there for it to happen, he's nothing but a liability now and he's shown a total disrespect to everyone associated with celtic, not least his teammates the management and fans who supported him through his troubles.

I wouldn't wish mental health issues on anyone but the club supporting him through it then getting that attitude in return is a joke, send him on his way.

11.) 10 Aug 2020 13:44:50
I seen the vids it was last Saturday night. When he wasn't in squad for game on sunday. No real big deal as wouldn't be allowed with team due to virus. Also he was only seen in the videos at start none of him steaming. No evidence he was drinking. So can't socialise if a football player now even if not involved? I think being unfit is unforgivable for any pro but can still have some sort of life. If was in squad he would have been in hotel and unable to attend. So what people want if no in team you have just to sit in yourself.



19 Apr 2020 09:46:46
There’s more rumours surfacing of arsenal being in for eddy, if true I’d say he would be off when the window opens . Bit gutted, but if we can’t keep kt from arsenal, we have no chance with eddy 🤮.


1.) 19 Apr 2020 10:37:38
Not for £25m he won't be 😂 You see this 16 year old from Birmingham be valued at £35-50m in his first season in the championship we should be demanding similar for Edouard especially when you see the value of some of the rubbish strikers the pub league has brought over the years. Joelington for £40m is one that stands out with 1 goal in 29 league games lol.

2.) 19 Apr 2020 11:29:41
Definitely the 50 million bracket if a 16 year old with 1 season under his belt is quoted at that I don't know where they get these prices from sometimes.

3.) 19 Apr 2020 15:43:46
It's madness mate seems to be the new English thing if someone has a half decent season now it's £50m valuation straight away. Wasn't McGinn being quoted to United for £50m? 😂.

4.) 19 Apr 2020 16:13:42
Yer a season after we wouldn't pay a few extra grand for him haha don't understand how a year after any1 leaves Scotland there value triples or is ten times what they left for its madness we need to be getting a fair wedge for these players coz as the old saying goes if you don't ask you won't get 👍🏻.

5.) 20 Apr 2020 01:34:45
Agree with you there Frank always the way with players up here. Was asked about VVD when Arsenal was interested in him from us and said he's 10 times the player Stones is and he went for £50m! Mates was saying it's only the Scottish league anyone can look good up here. That's just their general outlook on the standard of the league.

There’s an apathy coming over the fans with the way the board and the club have performed over the last year at least. Rumours that some of our better players want to leave, and again for less than they are worth due to the management letting them rundown the contracts, hasn’t helped either. I’m not sure how season ticket sales are going but we are still a loyal bunch. If the board want a surge of ticket sales, it’s an easy fix. Give us a couple of decent signings this week, it will give the fans such a lift instead of the usual silence, and rumours dropped to press or media outlets. The rumour that ange is to be introduced on Thursday, wouldn’t it be nice if he wheeled out a couple of signings to give us some hope for the upcoming season .


1.) 21 Jun 2021 15:47:06
Cheer up we gave Ralston another contract. We knew a rebuild was needed back in November yet we are a few weeks away from The Champions League qualifiers and we are still not moving forward.

2.) 21 Jun 2021 16:10:17
Pud, we didn't give Ralston a new contract.
We triggered a year's extension which was written into his previous contract.
If we let him walk it would have left us with only the young boy from Man Utd that we signed last year as the only RB at the club.

3.) 21 Jun 2021 18:17:18
Probably he will be a back up for league games. I've seen a few articles that we have bid 7 million for a RB from sporting lisbon.



20 Jun 2021 09:20:21
With the news breaking today that strachan is getting the top job at parkhead, I’m struggling to see many positives. We hired a firm of headhunters to find us a modern dof, and we turn back to someone in his 60s who is working for Dundee . Don’t get me wrong but he done well for us as a manager but that was over 10 years ago. He spent all last season on Celtic tv telling us there wasn’t much wrong with us as we watched the season unfold dramatically. He continually bigged up the board, he won’t go in and demand money off them to drastically improve us, can anyone imagine jnr being released now or Kennedy and ange bringing in his own men . We have gone from Harkin who has massive contacts with young players as that’s his job at city, a market we actively shop in, to this backward step. Another easy option taken by the board to insulate themselves again. A modern forward thinking club, we are not .


1.) 20 Jun 2021 10:08:22
Strachan knows his football he is not a fool when it comes to football and he did better than well for us 3 league titles in a row took his last league season at us to the last day and also got us into the last 16 of champions league TWICE ac milan goal was a sickner it could have been last 8. turned over teams like man u and ac milan who were major forces at the time.

2.) 20 Jun 2021 10:30:21
Ui, I’m not denying strachan done well but Milan was 14-15 years ago. I’d be saying the same if Oneil was brought in. Football has moved on and I feel we needed and in fact the word from the club was that we needed modernising. I’m struggling to see how this modernises us.

3.) 20 Jun 2021 10:49:00
Always felt Strachan was harshly treated by large section s of the fans. Even during games where we were 2 up there'd be people sitting moaning about him. Always seemed to have an averagely talented squad punching above their weight and getting good results.

4.) 20 Jun 2021 10:50:21
All I can say about Strachan is that he is a better manager than Lenny, if it is true about him getting a top job at Celtic, then I see that as a way, way backward step.

5.) 20 Jun 2021 10:51:00
Totally agree what u said only problem that those achievements are a manager job he not coming in as a manager.

6.) 20 Jun 2021 11:13:27
he will not be able to keep his wee nose out of the team. jnr will be in the backroom reporting back to daddy. big ange will walk. this pantomime just gets worse by the day. if mckay is allowing this then he is just a puppet to desmond. am away to bed for a couple of years.

7.) 20 Jun 2021 12:04:59
PK that is the concern, An average squad punching above their weight. Is that what we are to expect next season? The players being linked seems to point to that. The latest being a Brazilian CB for €1m or an Oxford CB to replace Ajer. I get the squad needs some shrewd reinforcements but if this is the caliber of players we are replacing our best players with then it reeks of downsizing. My concern with WGS would be he'll be happy to just shop only in the Scottish league or lower leagues in England which doesn't give me confidence of winning back the league.

8.) 20 Jun 2021 13:09:12
Love Gordon but it’s a backwards step bringing him in.

9.) 20 Jun 2021 13:40:57
There's nothing decided or official but it wouldn't faze me, he knows football inside out, why would it be a negative because he's 60 doesn't mean he doesn't know football he has the cv so why not fergie retired at 70.

10.) 20 Jun 2021 14:03:31
That’s a good assessment Quinn.

11.) 20 Jun 2021 14:31:22
Quinn you are spot on. The club is saying we have to come into modern times look too the future I can't see that the Strachan story coming to anything IF they are serious about moving the club forward and to the future. Surely it will be someone with a more modern approach to football?

12.) 20 Jun 2021 19:40:32
so should every one involved with football at Strachan's age just chuck football if this is how modernising a club is seen if you know football you know football and he knows it. i think the board will be modernising it in a way it brings in more cash commercially and we make more cash of player sales we produce . look at the teams down south all there new stadiums are basically shopping malls with a football pitch in the middle. true football is gone.

13.) 20 Jun 2021 20:04:35
No not saying anything about his age and he was a good manager But I don't think he has a modern way of looking at football just my opinion.

14.) 20 Jun 2021 23:26:20
I have no issue with Gordon Strachan but if we signed him in any capacity, it would be a backwards step.

We've got a new head coach on the cheap (no offence to big Ange) , the 'level' of player we start signing will soon show how ambitious and forward thinking our board are.

I'm still in disbelief at what took place last season and nothing that our board have done so far suggests to me that the massive improvement we require is anywhere on the horizon.

15.) 21 Jun 2021 00:52:54
Quinn, the club never said he was getting the job.
It now appears he isn't and never was so please stop reading the media rubbish as if it's fact. HH.



16 Jun 2021 19:57:15
With only 5 weeks until our first qualifier, how many players would we realistically like to see in. Bearing in mind we always seem to be slow to get deals finalised, but hopefully this will improve slightly now pistol Pete has left the building . Also would fans be keen to keep hold of ajer and eddy for the qualifiers?


1.) 16 Jun 2021 20:27:34
It's a big concern that we need so many players in such a short time and even more so because we are in the middle of a major tournament with players 'tied- up' for weeks to come and the same old problem with the transfer windows of players holding out for the best deals. I'm not so sure about using unhappy players (although we may have little choice? ) as it was these same unsettled players that failed miserably in last seasons qualifiers and caused the NL meltdown. Basically, I am more worried this pre-season than I have been for two decades, with a new unknown manager and the squad needing rebuilt.

2.) 17 Jun 2021 10:20:46
A lot of the guys playing in the euros won’t be available for some of the champs league play offs so I heard.

3.) 17 Jun 2021 13:00:58
Hopefully Berg is wrapped up quickly if we are the Scottish team interested. Wyke looks likely. Need a LCB, LW and a RB at least before the Midtjylland game.



28 May 2021 16:09:53
So we are starting again now Howe is off the table. People saying favre, but I don’t believe that for a minute.
I’m going Alex Neil as a guess, if not John Kennedy 🤢.




28 May 2021 15:35:35
Stephen macgowen has just tweeted and the record have followed it up saying the Howe deal has collapsed and we are in advanced talks with a new manager .
Embarrassing if true.

Possibly oldkilly, but how many games were Bournemouth on tv, and would he have been watching in the hope he got a job in Europe. If we were linked with some j league players or Aussies I’d presume they would be his picks . To me it looks like someone else, be it the old scouting networks or whatever and they are putting these players to him. To me it all seems a bit confused, it’s like he’s a coach and we have a dof arranging players, without having a dof.

Onceabhoy, you would hope that’s the case . I’m not sure who is putting these players forward though, and how much ange has seen of them. Is he actually having the final say on these players? For instance we are linked with Carter vickers, he was on loan at Bournemouth last season and Luton before that. I can’t imagine ange had watched a lot of the championship while in China .

He’s not a bad defender but if ange likes to play a high line and high press, surely we need fast defenders to cover. Big Erik isn’t fast . I’d prefer if we moved for zanka the other Danish centre back, think he played for Huddersfield.

I think he was linked with a 15million pound move at the weekend.
Does anyone know did he play for hibs at some point?

I’m the same jfp, renewed at the weekend. In my head I’m saying the club will sign cheap players and loans but my heart is saying they will surprise me and really back the manager with players he wants. Please let it be the latter . 🙏.

Jfp, what’s the difference between eddy and griff? One wanted to leave the other couldn’t be bothered getting fit after numerous chances . I don’t see why griff gets a pass of loads of fans . Going into a season with someone who hasn’t been a first choice forward for over four years is another gamble . I’d rather we got shot of both and started fresh.
