On a Green Brigade facebok page, someone has said that Turnbull has had a knee problem identified during medical.
Anyone heard anything or is it just the usual transfer window garbage?


1.) 22 Jun 2019 18:09:09
Think it’s garbage pal there’s a pic going about with
Turnbull and Lennon in the trophy room think he’s signed mate.



13 Jun 2019 09:10:33
My mate (a red hot Bolton fan) is telling me that the word down there is that Celtic are very interested in 17yr old Luca Connell. He reckons the boy is a great potential and would be a great buy.
I personally don't know much about the boy, any thoughts?


1.) 13 Jun 2019 14:59:44
He'll have to get rid of that Paddy McCourt hairstyle lol. HH.



29 Mar 2019 23:26:11
Quite possibly true
Scott Brown hints at retirement end of season.
He was interviewed on radio today and hinted retirement.
He said he has a great carer and playing for Celtic is just beyond word on how fantastic it has been.
However, he said it is now beginning to take its toll on him. His muscles now seize up and he tires quickly.
The interviewer went on to say he was surprised to hear that as he said that Scott always seems to stroll through games and never appears to suffer cramp or other leg pains. Always lasts the minutes and even extra time does not seem to affect him as he strolls along. Broony replied, "It's no ma legs, their fine. It's ma fecking erms wi' lifting awe them trophy's.


1.) 30 Mar 2019 17:25:08
Who’s his carer Tim.

2.) 31 Mar 2019 05:58:57
get him on a charles atlas courses.



11 Mar 2019 20:44:06
no back-up evidence but my cousin just sent me this rumour (take it with pinch of salt)
Rumour is that Celtic have approached Roberto Martinez with Sean Maloney as assistant and Kennedy staying as part of the management team.
A London based company, Lindsell Train, increasing their share to around 18.5% of Celtic. (not sure how that works as he tells me they also have major shares in Juventus)
Anyone else heard, or just another from the rumour mill?


1.) 11 Mar 2019 21:03:00
This was mentioned on another thread about the investment firm tiny.

2.) 11 Mar 2019 21:51:52
I’m a hibby but I heard about the same mate x.

3.) 11 Mar 2019 23:31:30
Just read about Martinez and maloney on Twitter as well, and a press conference tomorrow by Lawell to announce it, probably just twit talk.

4.) 12 Mar 2019 09:41:48
Martinez appears to be doing a decent job with Belgium.
Apparently (according to papers at the time) he spoke to Celtic in 2009 but ultimately turned us down when the chance to go to Wigan Athletic came up. HH.

5.) 12 Mar 2019 10:04:11
Tam10Tam, I would be most surprised if we made an announcement like that with Lennon still in the caretaker manager role and at this stage of the season. I know Celtic occasionally do bizarre stuff that surprises the fans (not always good either) but that one doesn't sound like a starter at all. HH.

6.) 12 Mar 2019 10:30:48
I think it would make sense to get the New manager signed up now for the start of the next season IF its not to be NL as it gives him time to have a look at what he has got and what he wants in.

7.) 13 Mar 2019 14:51:11
Don't know if it's just because we have been linked with him in the past that these rumours are around. He historically said some good things about Celtic. If the club do go for him it will show some ambition. I like lennon and what he achieved for Celtic but I feel a bigger name attracts bigger players. But I thought Larsson was crap after his first game for us. So who knows😊.

8.) 18 Mar 2019 07:49:40
There has been a marker set now lads. The next appointment isn't just a job it's a statement. Ticking over with old flames isn't the way. Fire us up yeah. Long term no. We are in a different place now. To ignore that will not be in the club's best interest for us to move remotely forward. Fresh blood. On the park and pulling the strings.
Duck out and coasting it isn't an option. Rag doll puppets dancing with invisible strings isn't the way. One big boss requires another to take the place. Demands it.



30 Aug 2018 08:21:14
is Dembele transfer confirmed?
I have seen all the rumours etc. but the only thing I concrete is Lyon are interested.


1.) 30 Aug 2018 10:27:11
Not done yet but if Lyon meet our valuation he will be off.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 10:58:41
What an absolute shambles, has to be the worst transfer window ever. Every time we are linked with someone it gets shot down straight away. Massive 4 days ahead of us.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 11:17:05
Lawwell will be happy, will fund his pointless hotel whilst we will probably get a 200k signing to replace him if we are lucky. Instead of the Four Seasons Hotel we will have the Two Seasons Hotel! Only took two Dembele seasons to find it.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 11:53:09
Can you explain why a hotel would be pointless marquez?

5.) 30 Aug 2018 12:05:09
Would we not make more money kev if we invested money on decent players that could get us into the champs lge where we would reap the financial benenfits instead of trying to make money off a hotel?

6.) 30 Aug 2018 12:14:16
Yes we would the Bhoy. We’ve got no need for a hotel when our fans start to dwindle because our manager has left and out players are nonsense.

7.) 30 Aug 2018 12:17:05
OK pointless might be a bit strong but not a priority at the moment in my opinion. Just raging about the current transfer window!

8.) 30 Aug 2018 12:31:16
I’m with you Marquez a B&B will do. Get the players first and get these huns skelped on Sunday.

9.) 30 Aug 2018 13:12:01
The hotel will be another revenue stream and will help the club to attract major events to CP etc. The more off-field revenue we can generate the better because it means we won't be so dependent on the CL group money which is becoming increasingly harder to get and the blow won't be as hard as it currently is, especially if we get a better TV deal as well. 100% we should have strengthened this summer and made sure of CL qualification but that should be independent of the hotel/ museum money and doesn't make those a bad idea.

10.) 30 Aug 2018 13:27:30
Exactly kev. The hotel should be independent. Nowt to do with the team. We're not worried about the hotel at the moment, in case you hadn't noticed our team is a feckin shambles. That's what people are pissed off about.

So we have millions in the bank and what do we get?
Let's spend some of it, splash the cash, get the cheque book out.
PL just looking after his bonus blah blah blah.
Some fans need a reality check.
We are essentially considered a Mickey Mouse league.
We do not generate the same revenue as your Spains, Germanys, Englands etc.
TOP players do NOT want to come to Scotland (Celtic have no control over that. )
PL is smart enough to know that players have valuations to buy and to sell on.
PL is not looking at the next 2 years (as many fans are obsessed with 10 iar) HE is looking at 10/ 20/ 30 years of existence.
HE not only knows the History, HE is ensuring we keep adding too it.
Yes I want 10 iar but not any any price.


1.) 13 Aug 2019 11:02:48
Tiny a said the other day we are lucky to have the man 16 years at our club and we have had unrivalled success on and off the park with outstanding facilities with more projects in the pipeline. or we do an oldco and go out of business. i want players in as well and am sure at least 3 will sign by the deadline.



09 Aug 2019 08:10:05
Splash the Cash calls once again.
What, like pay over the odds for an average player? The Ronaldos and Messis are not exactly beating at the door to sign for us.
An historic Treble Treble, An historic unbeaten run of games, 8 titles in a row. There is just no pleasing some people. We need to spend serious money. ON WHO? In case some have forgotten, we play in the Scottish League, not exactly known as the peak of challenges for top players. (We also have to play 4 CL qualifying ties to get into the CL group stage) We also do not make the kind of revenue which is being pumped about down south and in other leagues but we have a top class stadium and support to match. Honestly, some times a reality check is called for.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 08:51:08
Tim I ain't a one for shouting about spending money but some serious cash needs spent on this squad.
Also this garbage about players not coming here needs to stop.
Yes the players in the top big leagues with think like that but we can still attract players from places like Holland, Norway, Sweden and even the English championship but that's getting expensive as well.

Your asking who we should sign but that's the job of the scouting department, which we pay millions a year into.

However we all like to think we know a bit and have suggestions and mine would be Melling from Rosenberg for left back.
He looked great against us
He has won titles
He has won cups
He has European experience
He is an international
He is a great age at 24
He wouldn't break the bank.
There are players out there Tim.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 09:04:12
well said tinytim
this is why celtic are so successful as its run properly.
i had a feeling in my stomach Rodgers has been quiet then true to his sneaky ways he jumped in for mcgregor when celtic where offguard with the teirney sale.
We need calmac hope he can't be swayed until next year but i understand ambition he will now know he is wanted by the english top division great money huge signing on fee, his pal KT is challenging himself.
macgregor fee will be huge if he leaves rodgers will come in again poss £30,000000 then he will go.
celtic new if mcgregor went well especialy me i would be pissed as he is our best asset but the board did the right thing just now but i don't think this is over yet.
what about we sinky did he want to leave not sure is he going now to take the huff and demand to go.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 09:31:45
Of course there are players we can afford, I think Liam Lindsay would be good cb for us, he then sign for about 2m, Meling would be my first option as Tierney replacement, I would take Liam Henderson back, in scandinavia are a lot of good gk to replace Gordon next year.
Emil kraft Rb who sign for Newcastle
Nikola Maras cb in portugal
Yes I know I should stop playing FM😁.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 09:47:32
Richmond Boakye of Red Star Belgrade is a copy of Dembele, this are all young hungry players in our pay range
Florian Coman (steaua bucharest) would be my left winger if he is not too expensive
Lukas Haraslin was linked with a lot of Seria A clubs.

5.) 09 Aug 2019 11:03:22
Although I'm sad to see KT move to pastures new, in my opinion, our pot of gold is Calumn McGregor. He's technically brilliant with an obvious goal threat that will attract big clubs eventually. We have to hold on to him as long as we can. HH.

6.) 09 Aug 2019 11:06:35
You know this is real life not a football game in here?

Have you actually ever seen any of these guys play?

7.) 09 Aug 2019 12:18:34
I have seen then on TV and YouTube, we have scouts who watch players in person but we still sign duds like balde, bangura, compper.
If you Look where this players play you will find that they are in decent leagues, some in european competions. Im just saying that we should look at these market not just england
Are you heard of players for example Astana, Maribor who beat Celtic in europe? think not but that don't mean they don't have good players.

8.) 09 Aug 2019 12:35:23

Are you still talking.

9.) 09 Aug 2019 12:41:10
Seen Melling on at least 5 different occasions.

10.) 09 Aug 2019 13:06:36
Of course he is still talking you asked 2 questions.
What a daft reply.

11.) 09 Aug 2019 15:14:32
Dont worry kev he's probably rough as a dog or still onit 🍷😂.

12.) 09 Aug 2019 17:57:44
Wasn't it Coman that scored a worldy against England U21s? Looked a cracking player and agree wouldn't mind him. Liked the look of Arber Zaneli but think that ship has sailed now he went to Reims as he'll probably cost too much now. Agree on Meling he Wouldn't cost a fortune. RB I'd be happy with Ankerson. CF either Krmenchik or either striker from Red Star.

13.) 09 Aug 2019 20:01:51
Tiny Tim,

We can't recruit better than we have. We are cash rich and it should be spent to improve the squad.
Every Celtic fan is grateful of our recent achievements doesn't mean we don't try and kick on. Who actually said sign Ronaldo or Messi bonkers.

14.) 09 Aug 2019 20:56:50
Who asked you batman?

I have seen Melling also.

New image uploaded to the
Celtic Player Sightings page entitled, Apparently it is Kilmarnock's fault and not the supporters who jumped up on the disabled shelter roof


1.) 06 Aug 2019 11:07:54
Yes TT, according to that statement the Sevvies did indeed warn Killie in advance that the thugs were on their way. This makes it very clear that Killie are at fault for sure. How dare they suggest that the Sevvies are in the wrong. lol HH.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 12:47:05
It's about time other clubs limited their allocation accordingly.
The stewards and police have shown that they can't handle them, so reduce their numbers while lowering prices for home supporter areas.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 15:45:59
The press ain t trying to sell our players. They are trying to drive a wedge between the club, the players and the fans.
The only thing that can stop Celtic is Celtic and they know it.

4.) 07 Aug 2019 12:16:00
I don’t know about the stewards, but the police on Sunday and and at no other Rangers2012 match made any attempt to control or manage the Rangers fans . The police chiefs, Masons, have instructed police to turn a blind eye to the clubs whose Board of Directors are fellow Masons .
Kev. 83 are you the poster that used to claim referees and officials were impartial as far as Celtic are concerned .

It should be impossible for media to drive a wedge between club and fans, as all decent non gullible Celtic fans have stopped reading or listening to media years ago.

New image uploaded to the
Celtic Player Sightings page entitled, I have noticed (on quite a few Celtic sites) a number of fans who hate Liverpool since Stevie G crossed to the dark side. Kind of surprised me as I always thought we had a great relationship with them


1.) 31 Jul 2019 11:28:34
I've never really got why we have a connection with Liverpool. We have more in common with everton.

2.) 31 Jul 2019 11:44:44
I've never really liked Liverpool or any English team for that matter. Nothing to do with Gerrard going to the rangers as I never liked Gerrard either he was a great player but used to dive a lot which never really got much attention because of who he was. What I find funny now is the the amount off fans from the rangers who now suddenly support Liverpool.

3.) 31 Jul 2019 12:54:56
Always preferred Everton. I do really like Klopp though so do like to see them do well at the moment. I can honestly say I had an irrational disliking of Gerrard as a player.

4.) 31 Jul 2019 13:54:54
Nope I never really liked them either I remember my cousin telling me a story that they were formed by people who follow the dark side of Glasgow no idea if that is true or not but he is usually spot on (Y)

5.) 31 Jul 2019 14:31:22
The time they played us in a friendly after the Hillsborough disaster was special. Whole city in mourning and Celtic helped to start the healing. Justice for the 96.

6.) 31 Jul 2019 16:24:38
Liverpool fans gave their tickets to us at face value when we beat them at Anfield in Europe.

7.) 31 Jul 2019 18:31:09
worked in Holland with one of each, both when drinking used to say about each others teams, why you drinking to him they're all huns, were the catholic club, good fun but still don't know whose version was nearer the truth.



20 Jun 2019 08:03:22
I might be wrong here so feel free to correct me (like you need approval lol)
Yes, PL and the board will accept bids for any of our players. We are a business and we do not have access to all the sky cash being poured into EPL etc. So, to survive we will always have to try to buy low and sell high.
That said, every transfer window we see the same old story about the board biscuit tin mentality, PL locking up the cheque book, looking to get their bonus money so sell top players. I get that it's frustrating but.
If a player does not want to sign for us then nothing we can do about that.
Also, if any of our players do NOT want to leave then they have the final say on that as well.
So, if KT leaves, regardless of anything else, HE had the final say on staying or going. WE might not like it and it's easy to blame but the bottom line - The Player makes the decision.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 11:26:22
The buy low and sell high part is flawed. Where have the Dembele Dollars gone? Totally defeats the object.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 12:29:44
Jim here was me thinkin it was perfect as well.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 13:14:30
Rayman we don't need to do that to survive. It's what we need to do to have any ambition. But it's what we do to line the pockets of major shareholders.

disaster right enough.
I mean completed the League Title, completed the Cup run so he completed the Treble Treble. totally ruined my season.

sad really but partially understandable how supporters are turning.
If we do not get the treble this season it will be seen as a disaster and NL and PL will probably be crucified .
NL stepped in when we were dumped and abandoned by the rat, and finished the job.
It seems he is now going from Hero to Zero .
If only we had a David Murray or a Dave King who would spend all the money on any player the manager wants regardless of actual value.

sorry JFP,
KT is not dumping us half-way through the season with a very important run-in to complete like BR did.
The bhoy is ambitious and has the opportunity to get new challenges and possibly even move on to bigger things.
Celtic have to play 4 fecking qualifying ties for CL while 4 fecking English teams don't.
That pretty much sums up our standing with Europe (like Benfica, Ajax etc. ) in the hard light of day.
Bear in mind that he has not played for us for quite a while but we still managed the Treble Treble.
So, while sorry to see him leave, I see it as a good bit of business for Celtic and KT and we move on.

similar but not football.
I worked with a company who used to advertise for the various job positions (offshore drilling rigs) in the papers under a box number with no company named.
They did this:
1. To see who might be unhappy and want a change.
2. To judge what size of pay rise they should consider.
3. To see if any of their supervisors applied.
Not uncommon for companies etc. to use the system for information,
