Potential outgoings.
This summer window is making me nervous.
Simunovic to lille, Ajer to AC Milan, Tierney to Arsenal, Cal Mac to Leicester.
I know it's all rumours but anything is possible in football, and I hate the sound of these possibilites.

1.) 02 Aug 2019 18:20:30
Turner SMSM switching on the nerves and tension on Celtic fans, as they do every year .
SMSM spent most of the window, trying to get £30m for a couple of players for David King’s Rangers . They have failed miserly to raise money for Rangers2012 and they will equally fail with their aim to break - up Celtic ‘s team.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 12:08:24
Agreed Chris, Lennon even came out after the Ajer “interest” and dismissed it.
Anything to get those clicks for revenue though.



12 Jul 2019 09:48:16
This Israeli lad is not the answer, no where near, buying someone for the sake of it is bad business.
So many more options out there, yet it seems that we are entering a panic buy situation, we've had a good start to signings and releases, don't go backward already, we have until September to recruit the correct players, another CB, a RB, another RB on loan, and a decent CAM, along with a striker on loan.

Yes we need the RB position solved before more champions league qualifiers.
Get Ntcham and Rogic sold, and use that money to bolster the team, we would probably fill all required positions with the money generated from those two being sold, sell Ntcham (12m) and Rogic (8m) , 20m is enough to play with, and keep KT for pushing for 10IAR.

1.) 12 Jul 2019 11:04:36
Has he signed.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 11:14:36
I asked you on an earlier post but you didn't answer.
How often have you seen the big Israeli lad?
Also how do we sell ntcham and rogic if no one bids for them?

3.) 12 Jul 2019 11:59:11
I've not seen much of him but what I have seen of him he is average at best, bang average.
Asking price likely set too high for Ntcham, shouldn't be a problem offloading him, Rogic different, I'm sure plenty teams are aware of his injuries, Italy would be ideal for him, even swap for a great RB if possible.

4.) 12 Jul 2019 12:19:17
Why you getting your knickers in a twist if he's no even signed and al hazard a guess you've never seen him or if you did it was against us.

5.) 12 Jul 2019 12:24:46
Callum patterson in at right back and use him as your back up target man if we are chasing a game. Big physical player, has experience and won't break the bank.

The boy Cadden at Mwell also decent on the right.

Too many fans just get excited at exotic names and big price tags.

6.) 12 Jul 2019 12:33:53
Price set to high? Your having a laugh.
This is a player who has played I the Italian top league and our top league plus European experience.
Look at the money players with less than half the experience he has are going for. Even French ed cost 9 million.
15 million is a fair price for him.

7.) 12 Jul 2019 13:01:23
Paterson and cadden my god we're struggling now caddens a winger and Paterson is mince.

8.) 12 Jul 2019 13:31:13
Anybody with some common sense will see Paterson and cadden are bang average for teams far below our level, we're needing solid players who suit there positions not somebody who can just fill in, that's when mistakes will happen in high pressure games.
I think for a quality right back and another box to box midfielder if ntcham does go we would need to spend about 10-13m, I like rogic, he's probably the most technically gifted player we have but he can't last 90 minutes so I would probably keep him for certain games and bring somebody else in who will get up and down and link the play.

9.) 12 Jul 2019 13:38:45
I actually think Patterson is a decent player but does he not struggling with injuries quite often.

10.) 12 Jul 2019 13:50:21
He's no realky a rb last to. e a saw him with Cardiff he was playing up front and he's bang average.

11.) 12 Jul 2019 14:18:13
He was put up front because they had an injury crisis. He's been a left back for years and years.

12.) 12 Jul 2019 14:51:18
Kev83, who are you talking about when you said " played in Italian top league, our league"?

13.) 12 Jul 2019 15:11:23
Ntcham, wyllie67.

14.) 12 Jul 2019 15:20:08
We need a right back that can defend, Lustiq was past it, up against nippy wingers, he made Kent look like a world beater,

15.) 12 Jul 2019 15:34:47
Ntcham mate.

16.) 12 Jul 2019 15:56:16
Kev Paterson has never been a lb he was used up front by Cardiff the majority of the time and rb at hearts and even Scotland and imo he's average.

17.) 12 Jul 2019 16:28:55
Mally it was meant to say RB but phone changed it because I've been writing out LBs for ages.
He move to RB at hearts and has played most his games down there as one. He's also played CDM and CM for Cardiff.

18.) 12 Jul 2019 17:36:03
Cool, I thought it was someone were looking at signing, lol.

19.) 12 Jul 2019 18:11:59
Any one mentioned is pure speculation until he is through the door As much as I like to see speculation at this time of year I won't think of it more than that at this time.

20.) 12 Jul 2019 18:13:53
No probs nate.

21.) 12 Jul 2019 21:40:58
15m might be a fair price but if nobody is willing to the 15 id take 12, plus sell on fee, instead of him sulking and dragging his heels, use the cash get someone else in who wants to play at the club and impress.

22.) 12 Jul 2019 23:32:54
Would sell Ntcham if he's going to down tools like last season. The money from his sale could buy us a replacement as well as RBs and a CF with change if you go with the current rumours of Baldock £3m, Elhamed £1.6m, Sawyers £2.5m and plenty left over for CF.

23.) 13 Jul 2019 02:42:43
Well there's a first for everything, an expert on israeli football on this forum PMSL.

24.) 13 Jul 2019 11:31:38
with regards to selling Nitcham I think we have to wait until after he's spoken with the gaffer and if he is of the mindset which has been portrayed and its not just journalistic fantasy then I would get rid of him asap. I wouldn't even wait for someone to bid the clubs valuation as long as we make a profit I'd punt him. I certainly would not be in favour of holding on to him to we get what he's worth (he's no KT) as we would be paying good money for nothing. It would be like cutting of your d**k to spite your wife.



08 Jul 2019 12:47:52
Any news on the Liam Morrison situation?

1.) 08 Jul 2019 13:04:48
Thought he was staying then saw a thread yesterday he was off to Bayern.



16 Jan 2019 09:50:26
BR linked with Leicester.

1.) 16 Jan 2019 11:45:24
Can't see it but maybe will put a little pressure on lawwell to splash a bit but then again we can't compete with Leicester.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 12:39:02
Theres no way he would leave during season. Loves club too much to do that. Also I think this is bull as media are trying their hardest to unsettle us.

Yesterday I noticed Daily person transfer centre online opening paragraph put celtic and rangers in order "rangers and celtic". Rule of thumb with grammar is to list items in alphabetical order, but when its comes to old firm supporters tend to mention their club first. Also we are the champions so it would make sense to mention us first. Point I'm making is, this is what we are up against with media. Total biast attitude against us, will print any crap in hope it unsettles us. Really want this league title more than stopping them getting 10 in a row.

3.) 16 Jan 2019 14:55:59
It would be easier to list the clubs he hasn’t been linked with in the last couple of years.

Liam Morrison to Bayern, I'm not looking at Celtic News Now anymore It's nothing but negativity. The board have failed miserably there, I thought Islam Feruz would have changed the way we handle our youth players, obviously not.
Good luck to the lad, he obviously has something if Bayern Munich want him.

1.) 19 Aug 2019 11:30:17
Jeez we lose one youth player and it's a disaster.
Nothing about the successes and the fact we've swooped in and snatched several youngsters the way Munich just done to us eh?

2.) 19 Aug 2019 12:23:12
Far too positive that kev we only do doon and gloom on here too many reading the rags.

3.) 19 Aug 2019 21:02:47
Bad advertisement not keeping hold of our own, and as far as us snatching from other teams this summer I think the more likely answer was they weren't as highly rated as other youth prospects at their previous clubs, or in Luca Connell case the team were strapped for cash and were happy with the extra compo we paid, so yeah it isn't great, how many youth players have made it at Celtic in past 10 year?



07 Aug 2019 20:53:47
We better buy a RB and LB and CB and CDM with this incoming cash from sale of Tierney otherwise we have been had.

1.) 07 Aug 2019 20:56:00
Turner does matter who we buy you'll be slating them.
Hendry is a better player than big elhamed remember.

2.) 07 Aug 2019 21:01:19
Our decision making at times is freightning but hee ho great ressult wee will strengthen believe that! Onwards and upwards lads 🍀👍.

3.) 07 Aug 2019 21:08:11
I thought El Hamed was good at RB tonight but Morgan and Boli should never wear the Hoops again. Morgan should be sold or loaned out again. Why give Sinclair a pay rise then not play him. He has never really let us down and was only injured once, if i remember correctly, before the League Cup Final 3 seasons ago.
He should sit tight and take the cash. Lennon will have to pick him then.

4.) 07 Aug 2019 21:16:00
Who here also used to slate Forrest a few seasons back

Elhamed was solid tonight for me.

5.) 07 Aug 2019 21:25:28
Lennon will play the tea lady first he's that stubborn.

6.) 07 Aug 2019 21:31:00
Elhamed is average at best kev, don't think he is a bobo balde.

7.) 07 Aug 2019 21:55:17
He was one of the best players on the park.
Hope he's not bobo balde because balde was a CB and couldn't pass 10 yards.



04 Aug 2019 16:39:51
Many people have criticised the appointment of NL, I had my doubts about it when he was appointed, however yesterday's performance was absolutely amazing. The team were direct, clinical, and moved around the park like a heard of gazelle in the Serengeti.
If this is the type of performances we are going to get then im more than excited about this season. None of that passing along the back four wasting time with slow build up, boring dull football.
Ryan Christie just gets better, the lad can finish no question about it.
If you were scratching your head at why Sinclair didn't start well yesterday answered that, young hungry players wanting to prove a point.
The futures bright, it's green and white.

1.) 04 Aug 2019 18:04:39
I wasn't happy about Lennon's appointment and I still don't think he should be anywhere near the job.
Not because of his managerial ability which I still don't think is right, yes it was a good performance but we were playing a really bad team that couldn't even beat Ross Co, Montrose or Forfar, My issues are with the threatening to have a young girl's throat cut after he couldn't bribe her because she was going to spill the beans when Lennon couldn't keep his pants up. Ed has also mentioned that there are other incidents where we got a D order (I think its called that) where we "can't talk about it"
As a father of 5 girls I think its discusting and out of order, I will always support the team but there is no way that I will support or approve of his appointment.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 18:51:43
🤔A great free flowing game with loads of goals yet you drag up a story from years ago Mr Negativity. What score would have made you a bit more upbeat? Thank feck I don't sit next to you😉.

3.) 04 Aug 2019 19:33:57
Pud, if you are talking to me then did you actually read me post?
I don't have any issues with the team, the performance or the score Just the appointment of the manager which the original poster mentioned.
Does it matter when the story was from? loads of people on here didn't want Danny Simpson anywhere near the team for what he did and which happened the same year as the Lennon incident but won't see a thing said about Lennon and always come out with the "in Lennon we trust" crap. Total hypocrisy in my eyes
I can still support the team without liking who manages it.

4.) 04 Aug 2019 20:03:27
I was critical of Lennon’s appointment and still do think it’s a back wards step. Let’s not get carried away like that other mob do but if he has us playing like that still at end of season and gets us into the champions league, he deserves all the plaudits that come his way. Board seem to be backing his judgment too on players.

If young Henderson isn’t going to be involved much this year i would get him out on loan. Boy needs to be playing 1st team football. Absolutely gutted we lost his brother, he came back a much better player after his loan in Norway.

5.) 04 Aug 2019 21:02:01
Totally agree Henderson needs game time, however id punt Rogic and give henderson game time, he's much more valuable to us. I wouldn't waste my time playing Arzani either when we have Sinclair Oko flex Morgan Shved and Dembele, send him back and loan a RB in asap for cover.

6.) 04 Aug 2019 21:52:45
It's one game so let's not be getting carried away with Lennon, jury is still out. let's hope we don't see a repeat of the Ibrox performance as that's where he'll be judged, but yesterday's performance certainly helps Lennon to start winning over the doubters including myself.

7.) 04 Aug 2019 21:59:07
I know where you're coming from Johnbhoy and was critical of his return last Feb and was not impressed with a lot of performances in the run-in - although did appreciate the superb effort and achievement However, the last two home performances were outstanding, with much slicker football and plenty of goals and if this form continues - the support will be delighted with what they are watching.
This season we will have many detractors, critics, haters and hurdles including many organisations and bodies trying to halt our success.
It's a time to stick together and defy those who despise us.

8.) 04 Aug 2019 22:19:10
I always wonder how any Celtic supporter can believe a word from what is in the SMSM . Ever since the Christmas Party and the Daily Record reporting on the
“Thugs Liars and Thieves “:I have not believed a word of condemnation from the SMSM, especially the Daily Record .
Obviously some Celtic fans are happy to believe stories from these sources with very little or no proof .

Th question of Danny Simpson and the alleged wrong -doings were not a reason why I didn’t want him at Celtic Pk . It’s my believe that in England and Scotland any man who is guilty of the type of violence reported to have been committed by both Lennon and Simpson would have spent time in prison . Prison sentences are given when people are guilty, not when media reports .

Neither Lennon nor Simpson spent any time in prison .
I wasn’t sure about Simpson coming to Celtic because of his age and he really not playing any last season .

Good luck to those who can have everyone working in any capacity a saint like themselves . It will be lovely to see Celtic Park lit up by halos🤓🤪🤩.

9.) 04 Aug 2019 23:06:46
I understand what you are saying OAB, I will always support the team.

10.) 05 Aug 2019 01:04:52
I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere, I thought this was a football site and not a chatroom for the moral police. I think players, coaches and managers should be judged on their ability to do the job they are paid to do and not on their personal lives, religion, politics etc.

Unless the Virgin Mary is on here using a pseudonym it's safe to say we are all sinners and have made mistakes. I for one hope I will never be judged by men and will rely on God's mercy in the final judgment. He who is without sin should cast the first stone - I won't be casting any. Let's just enjoy the football, banter and crack and leave the moralisms to the fundamentalists. Rant over, sorry.

11.) 05 Aug 2019 02:04:46
OMC - are you having a laugh?
Believe stories with very little proof? did Lennon not admit what he did and apologise? Did Simpson not get found guilty and sentanced to community service which was then changed to a house curfew? but i guess because neither got banged up then all the reports must be made up!
There are plenty of incidents of normal people getting banged up for doing the same thing as so called celebrities or people with money who get next to no punishment.
Anyway my main point was as a father of 5 daughters, to me after what Lennon did then he should be no where near Parkhead, my other point was that people on here and in other forums were outraged when it looked like we might sign Simpson because of what he did but turned a blind eye when it comes to Lennon.

12.) 05 Aug 2019 07:22:35
so johnboy no body is aloud to make mistakes. mistakes are in every human being mate. just aswell your not the judge when we pass away the whole world would be doomed.

13.) 06 Aug 2019 06:53:44
I never said we weren't allowed to make mistakes but like I said People on here will turn a blind eye where Lennon is concerned.



25 Jul 2019 10:31:42
I see the club website isn't up to date with the current squads for both first team and reserves, doesn't seem like a big job to keep on top of.
Will McInroy get a sniff of action this season?

1.) 25 Jul 2019 11:01:25
Possibly waiting until the 'window' shuts and all the ins and outs are finalized. I'm sure we will still add one or two and there are certain to be a few out the door, either for good or on loan?

2.) 25 Jul 2019 13:54:04
That part of the website has always been like that. I think they should also have a page dedicated to those out on loan to let the fans know how they are getting on each week in terms of results, playin time, goals, assist etc.

3.) 25 Jul 2019 22:48:01
Totally agree, Its 2019 the site should be far more impressive than it is, so dated.



17 Jul 2019 21:05:27
I have more control over a scalding jacket tatty straight from the oven than big Eddy has with a ball to his feet. It's like he is thinking about his second and third touch before doing the basics anf getting the ball under control.

1.) 17 Jul 2019 21:39:03
He's a poacher. Needs a good target man to play up front with him. Someone who can hold ball up.

2.) 17 Jul 2019 21:54:43
French eddy is definitely not a poacher is any shape or form. He is a player who wants to drop out the box and then run at a defence.

3.) 17 Jul 2019 22:10:39
Better on the left cutting into the box.

4.) 17 Jul 2019 22:18:56
their big no 9 impressed me over the 2 legs with his hold up and ability to bring a limited team into the game. aye, he's 34 and maybe at the tail end of his career but the disallowed finish in the opening minutes was class.

5.) 17 Jul 2019 22:55:09
Phil are u seriously saying Eddie is a poacher! He ain’t a poacher In a million years mate!

6.) 18 Jul 2019 01:00:29
Perhaps I used wrong word saying he was a poacher. Just think he links up well with a striker that can hold ball up. Worked well with Dembele. Apologies for upsetting anyone and ruining your night saying that.

7.) 18 Jul 2019 01:30:33
Big Eddie is such a frustration. He clearly has all the attributes to be a top player but his laid back style makes him look lazy and ineffective. He really doesn’t look much of a goal threat at the minute.

8.) 18 Jul 2019 06:07:21
Eddie is not a lone striker, he plays better as part of a front 2.
And Turner, he had plenty of good control when he scored the winner at Ipox in the 3-2 game or the winner in the cup final.

9.) 18 Jul 2019 09:46:16
So jonbhoy who is the lethargic lump I keep watching? I'm sorry but 9m should have us a lad destroying teams.

Chris I totally agree it's massively underwhelming, and I said the same last week israels first choice right back would be a far better option than this lad who at 28 with 1 cap for his country just speaks volumes about his ability, I mean Bitton has 21 caps, he's not exactly brilliant is he.

Totally agree.
Brown is great to have in the squad no doubt about it, however this is the time to blood in the team for the future.
What kind of confidence has been handed to Boli and Julien?
I'm not going to carry on moaning about what has happened qualifying is never a guarantee, and getting smashed in the CL isn't fun to watch.
Europa League is our level and we have to accept that.
Let's get a young hungry team picked and let's get cracking, another LB in and that will do me, enough cover everywhere else taking the young lads who need games into consideration, and try Bitton in the holding role he may prove a good replacement for Brown.

Zero chance he will be sacked kev, Bain was a liability tonight, eddy wasteful with the ball, before folk slate me yes he scored and assisted but the lad gets enough time to create and score just so indecisive.
Play off for Europa league it is, more our standard anyway let's be honest.

Well I'd rather spend money on youth investment and development than players who blow hot and cold, only bought to fill gaps in the squad, not really good enough to demand a start.
Ajer is a perfect example, and for a potential fee of £650k it's just unreal recruitment, just need more of it.
