So with Lustig away who else has officially left the club?

Rich T

1.) 20 Jun 2019 06:51:19
Boyata, Gamboa, De Vries and Allan's contracts have expired. Technically Burke, Benkovic and Toljan were signed until the end of the month but won't return. Izzy's deal runs until the end of this month but I doubt he'll return either.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 07:19:00
Move on he’s another who doesn’t want to come here.



14 Jun 2019 16:45:18
DR reporting that Turnbull agents have turned down a deal for Turnbull which Celtic have offered and are now touting her m for a move down south.

Rich T

1.) 14 Jun 2019 16:59:32
Looks like it another riddy.

2.) 14 Jun 2019 17:06:34
If this is true. Can we ever trust Lawwell again, looks the "low ball offer in wages" Pedro just GO.

3.) 14 Jun 2019 17:12:45
I think he wants to go to england so let him go. Wages won't be the problem . Move onto next target.

4.) 14 Jun 2019 17:18:12
If his agent is hawking him round England then Celtic should cancel the deal and move on.

5.) 14 Jun 2019 17:20:54
Shouldn’t be a surprise, another fun transfer window on its way.

6.) 14 Jun 2019 17:27:47
Don't think it's PL fault on this one we can't be held to ransom for any player.

7.) 14 Jun 2019 17:27:49
Fae what I read he was offered a deal that matches our wage structure so can say it's a low ball.
This boy is a good player but he's not someone we should break wage structure for. He's only played about 30 games for Christ sake.
If his agent is playing silly buggers and trying to get over the odds for him then bin it and move on. Let him deal with trying to get the money down south.

8.) 14 Jun 2019 17:28:23
If it's true and his agent is doing this then Celtic should simply say this is the offer take or leave.

9.) 14 Jun 2019 17:28:35
I'm with lawell on this, here we have what is effectively a wee guy, who we're willing to pay 3mil for.

Seems more like Mr Agent isn't getting as much fee as he would like and has rejected it on his behalf.

Agents man, **** of the earth.

10.) 14 Jun 2019 17:33:22
I think the asking price was pretty high for a guy with one good season. If he's knocked back our offer than we should definitely walk away. Hope Motherwell get stuck with him and his value plummets.

11.) 14 Jun 2019 17:53:03
How can this be another riddy? We’ve matched the asking fee of £3 million from Motherwell which for a guy in his first full season is all we can ask. If turnbull and his agent want more wages than Celtic are offering then he can jog on. I’m pretty sure for a 19 year old he’ll be getting offered a handsome wage and if he progresses then will more than likely get improved over a period of time. I’m not sure what else people want the board to do? Are we to pay this 19 year old top wack after 1 full top flight season?

12.) 14 Jun 2019 17:54:07
Celtic have announced what they are going to do so it’s now in the players and agents hands now how much does a 19 year old want in a weeks wage etc we wait again haehoe.

13.) 14 Jun 2019 18:50:15
Timalloy, you're talking bollox. Do you know what the offer was to Turnbull? I suspect not but you still come out and publicly criticise Lawwell. You know nothing of the facts but you feel justified in being an idiot with your narrow minded shyte. HH.

14.) 14 Jun 2019 19:14:45
Don't hold back bobcat lol
If Celtic have matched the fee set by murderwell and offered the player a salary within out wage structure (which would be a hella of a lot more then his current wage) only for the agent to start touting him down south, I'd give him an ultimatum, you've 48hr to accept or the offer is withdrawn and we look elsewhere. No way we should be getting held to ransom by a player who's had one decent season.

15.) 14 Jun 2019 21:10:13
A definite time scale by Celtic should be put on this. No way should we be dictated to or held to ransom by greedy agents and a player with 1 good season as a pro.

16.) 14 Jun 2019 21:46:53
Simple trying to hold the club to ransom. We agree to pay the fee Motherwell wanted and the player going to get an increase in wages and l would imagine by some amount to what he is currently on. What planet is his agent on? He is a fine player and been given a chance to play with a great club and have a chance to win trophies. Maybe he or his agent should stop reading there own press. Well done to Celtic and PL who at time l don't agree with but here l do for taking a strong stance on this. It's simple sign the deal offered or goodbye.

17.) 14 Jun 2019 18:15:47
Like I said the other day give it a rest Timalloy, it’s getting as boring as you’re ex bear tales. oldkilly.

18.) 14 Jun 2019 23:03:57
Why not offer incentivised wage structure, the more you play the more you will earn year on year if he’s got belief in his ability and wants to succeed it’s win win for us if he doesn’t then end the negotiations now clearly he’s not the type of player we need.



14 Jun 2019 13:18:53
Reports of Turnbull completing medical after flying back from holiday are floating about.

Rich T



09 Jun 2019 00:15:54
In regards to the offers for Turnbull one bid was 2m but no club was identified with the 2m bid do we think Barnsley are more likely to have put the 2m bid in cause going with PL record it wouldn’t surprise me.

Rich T

1.) 09 Jun 2019 10:33:14
Depends what report you read. Some saying it was us that bid 2 others, say we did 1 and the scotsman said we haven't bid at all.



04 Jun 2019 23:33:59
Boldock Rb from Sheffield united we’ve apparently opened talks with him (daily Mail )

Rich T

1.) 05 Jun 2019 07:34:40
It's on BBC as well now. I live in Sheffield and been to a few games he looks a good player. Is attacking so would offer a threat down the right similar to kt does on the left.

2.) 05 Jun 2019 08:31:47
Would he be in addition to, or instead of O’Donnell? Glad we are trying to 2 right backs if that's the case. We definitely need 2. But I’d have hoped that one would have had a better pedigree than these 2. Quite a drop from Castagne. We just buying them in hope that we get lucky and at least one doesn’t turn out to be another Jack Hendry?

3.) 05 Jun 2019 08:40:10
Boldock is a good player think he’d fit in well
Also the players on the list are decent players 👍🏼.

4.) 05 Jun 2019 09:28:23
Boldock would be a good signing. Was first team last year with Sheffield United who got 2nd in championship.

5.) 05 Jun 2019 10:54:39
Yes but he’s now being deemed not good enough for Sheff Utd, but apparently still good enough for us? I set my sights higher than us signing players not good enough for the EPL.

6.) 05 Jun 2019 11:06:06
Lm67 he has not been deemed not good enough for Sheffield United. Celtic are trying to buy him.
So every player Celtic try to buy is deemed not good enough for his team if that's what you are saying.

7.) 05 Jun 2019 11:35:38
I live in Sheffield I have friends that are United fans they all rate him and have said he will be first team next year if he stays. Don't know where you got that from LM67.

8.) 05 Jun 2019 12:25:30
There’s not a single EPL player that you can buy for £2-3m if their club want to keep them. He has a year left so they are open to offers. From what I’ve read he is capable going forward but not the best defensively. They want to buy a more defensive minded right back as they know they’ll be under the cosh constantly next season.

Do you really think an Englishman whose just reached the EPL for the first time would want to swap first team EPL football for the SPL? No chance. He’ll only come if he isn’t in their plans. Which appears to be the case.

9.) 05 Jun 2019 12:46:18
So your moaning because you don't want an epl reject but then openly state if they are wanted by their club they won't come to us. Are you listening to your self? can't win with some fans. I've watched the guy he will improve us.

10.) 05 Jun 2019 13:06:01
Sky saying it's unlikely utd will sell so it's onto the next one.

11.) 05 Jun 2019 13:39:20
I don’t want to be shopping in England at all. There’s no value there.

12.) 05 Jun 2019 17:48:38
LM67 - Sinclair was deemed not good enough for Villa, came here and ran riot. Pukki was deemed not good enough for us and he's fired Norwich into the EPL. Sometimes players are a much better fit at a certain club.

13.) 05 Jun 2019 17:46:38
Aye boldock played very good in a competitive league and won promotion to the most competitive league in the world

I’d be happy with him at right back he’s not someone who sprung to mind but I think he’s good business at 26 with only a year on his contract, id get him on a 4year contract he isn’t injury prone either and O’Donnell would be a good back up to him

Harper in cm and turnball as attack mid looks to be who we are going for in the middle and looks like barker from Man City winger too definitely don’t need a winger in my opinion but he’s young and looks good on the cheap why not? A centre back and striker to follow, I don’t think we are going to spend a lot of money we are looking for bargains in a over inflated market, like someone posted before British players have served Lennon well in the past so why not just can’t wait for the season to start and see how wee get of the blocks, if we spend big it will be on cb and striker I think.

14.) 05 Jun 2019 17:49:08
Given the silly money being thrown around in the EPL it would be a surprise if we signed him.

Does this appointment of Hammond reek desperation to help bring in players when they have been working behind the senses from February and nobody in so far even in terms of actually being linked with players. Am sure this guy has got experience at finding the right profiled player required but if you are coming in now surely that part of the job has been done by now. I just don’t understand it?

Rich T

1.) 20 Jun 2019 16:45:07
With this appointment we should see the ball start rolling in terms of bringing players in. Don't know much about him but surely he has a better eye for a player than Congerton!

2.) 20 Jun 2019 16:59:09
Didn't Lawwell say after the cup final that Lenny had a great eye for a player? If that's the case then why do we need this guy? HH.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 17:08:44
Totally agree rich T, if this is only a short term thing what good will that serve? What kind of working relationship can be made between him and Lennon over a 6/ 8 week period? Surely we should already have a long list of potential targets in place without this guys short term input? I’m all for a director of football but why short term? Why not appoint this guy or whoever on a long term deal? Just don’t get it. Given he’s not starting his “ short term role” until the 1st of July, does that then mean we shouldn’t expect any activity before then?

4.) 20 Jun 2019 17:43:05
The transfer window isn't about to close . We have no games coming up within the next month that should cause our present squad any great trouble .
Just keep calm, it will be alright on the night.



20 Jun 2019 08:34:57
Can someone answer this how come clubs can go out scout a player then it might get linked with club and player then day or two later the player is being paraded with new team? But Celtic like to make it drag on.

Rich T

1.) 20 Jun 2019 10:16:02
Some of us have been asking that for years. Too much of our business is 'leaked' or commented on before, during and after, while other clubs seem quicker and more efficient to the 'punch'.
I am sure we will sign some players as-and-when, but we do seem to lack that bit of cut and thrust in transfer deals?

2.) 20 Jun 2019 10:17:40
Dear god Ritch u ask some questions mate! 🤦🏻‍♂️🤣 it’s a frustrating time for every Celtic fan the now mate, and it always feels like we’re dragging our heels in every window we go into! But nobody on here knows the exact ins and outs of deals and they way theyr set up! your asking questions we don’t know mate!

3.) 20 Jun 2019 10:36:41
LH86 usually at least one of the Eds could shed some kind of light on the subject but they are either on a short break or just not wanting to answer anymore who knows?

4.) 20 Jun 2019 10:50:19
At the end of the day we all just really guess and have our say mate. but like I said it’s a frustrating time being a Celtic fan in the transfer window. like OAB was saying, we lack cut and thrust in the transfer market! Not all but a hell of a lot of our deals are dragged out! We never seem to be on the front foot when it comes to transfer dealings! And I would bet strongly it will be the same in this one! But I promised myself I won’t get angry early on in the window. i’ll Save that for 2 days before it shuts and we still haven’t got a right back 🤣🤣🤣🤣.



20 Jun 2019 06:53:49
Does anybody know the cut off point for CL the qualifying rounds for transfers to be added. As in first round cut off etc?

Rich T

1.) 20 Jun 2019 07:28:56
I think the first qualifier is the 4th July and we can add one player up to 24 hours before the first leg.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 10:37:27
Cheers LB10.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 11:25:29
so we have 13 days to fill all our vacant positions. somebody is going to be busy then. lol good luck and hail hail.



20 Jun 2019 00:54:39
Excuse my ignorance but can anyone tell me what hard work goes into signing a player, what process are involved? For example I am the manager and I want an attaching full back how would I get one in?

Rich T

1.) 20 Jun 2019 05:50:17
Dig deep mate something that knocks Celtic to the pit of there stomach Lawell playing Russian roulette here if wee blow the ten they’ll be he’ll to play.



19 Jun 2019 15:58:10
Does anyone think that we could be like spurs and get nobody in after the way this has been handled do people think others will follow Turnbull way. Use a big club to get to a better league?

Rich T

1.) 19 Jun 2019 16:50:20
We'll get people in Rich. The window might be open and we might be back but as JK said today there are a lot of clubs that aren't, players still on holiday etc. Things will be in motion.

2.) 19 Jun 2019 17:45:29
If our club panicked the way some of our fans panick . 3 days into window and nobody signed, doesn't mean we won't sign players in the next 70 odd days .

3.) 19 Jun 2019 19:20:40
The pressure/ panic always mounts because of these CL qualifiers and the failed transfer bid for Turnbull has added to the pressure.
It's still very early in the 'window' and I do believe we are trying to get players in the door at this very minute.
However, the squad we have at present including a fully fit Griffiths (on their best form) are very capable of getting past the first round if it comes to that.

What a carry on how much time and effort has went into this fares of trying to sign Turnbull surely these details of contracts would have been discussed to test the water before going all out to get the player. What waste off Celtics time. If this is how our window is starting how is it going to end? What a joke what has the footballing world turned into when a 19 year old and his reps try’s to take their new employer to the cleaners in term of their contract.

It’s reports that he was impressed with Norwich but sees Celtic as the better opportunity for where he is right now. He would’ve made more money down south but I wonder if he is to be loaned back to Motherwell for the season that might be the difference something has changed to get him home maybe it’s that?

Yeah what now Celtic hopefully have shown that they will back Lennon with funds after the bid for Turnbull I really do hope that continues. That’s the only positive I take from the Turnbull mess. I am going to stop reading paper talk and social Medea for transfer news and just wait until there is a player being paraded with new team Celtic colours with the news that a player has actually signed.
