I see we are reported as being interested in the Salzberg LB Gideon Mensah was scouted by Barcelona. looks very fast on utube but not the greatest testament of a players ability. However this would really stuff it to kilmarnock having bought a replacement.


1.) 27 Aug 2019 18:08:04
I don't care about stuffing it to killie. I care about getting the right player for our team.
This boy I know nothing about except he's very inexperienced and looks like he'd be a back up at this moment.
He also would have to do some serious travelling when it comes to international Football, so with all that in mind I'd rather Taylor.

2.) 27 Aug 2019 18:53:20
Much prefer Taylor. He knows the league and has proven to be a solid LB and now a international. The last thing we need is another young guy to go into the development side. We need players that can go into the first team.

3.) 27 Aug 2019 18:56:55
If Meling isn't coming then we should be getting the Taylor deal done pronto and stop feckin about over a few quid. Does our club never learn? HH.

4.) 27 Aug 2019 19:05:18
That'll teach Killie to ask for decent money for their prized asset!

5.) 27 Aug 2019 19:24:59
Looks like Gideon Mensah is already on loan at Sturm Graz .

6.) 27 Aug 2019 19:30:30
Use a fringe player plus cash and just get the feckin player Lawell!

7.) 27 Aug 2019 19:37:40
@Drewzybhoy he was on loan at Sturm Graz for the second half of last season.

8.) 27 Aug 2019 19:58:33
Seems he's tried that OAB and they said no.

9.) 27 Aug 2019 20:33:03
I read on another site, it’s a loan deal . This window is getting worse, signing players no one has heard from, and now they are loan deals. What is going on at our club? It’s embarrassing .
We have been fed so much crap this window it’s unbelievable. Lies after lies
Players will be in before champions league qualifiers : never materialised
We have a plan if kt is sold : nothing materialised
We will wait and use the English market once it’s shut : only Fraser on loan
We will have two players in by today : nothing again.
And on and on we go, meanwhile the window is closing on us. We all know the people will get Ryan kent and it will be another boost to their morale, while we sell off or let our defence leave without replacing them properly . Look to push out one of our biggest goal threats . If we sign only loans, Peter makes his profit, I wish he would be asked to leave, get someone in who puts the team first before profits and hotel ideas . We are a football club, where fans travel far and wide to support . Myself included, I’m really not bothered what hotel I stay at.

10.) 27 Aug 2019 20:57:32
I agree with all of that Quinn bar PL to go. What we need is a football man making these decisions. The major shareholders also need to know that running a football club, that so many put their heart and soul (and hard earned money) into, is different from running any other business where the aim is just to make a profit.

Kev if the reports are correct that we've offered 1m when they only asked for 3m then I'd hardly say we have tried.

11.) 27 Aug 2019 21:04:24
It truly is a complete joke, Thursday will be difficult and we may sneak through but I'm not confident for Sunday. I honestly think this could be a disaster of a week, the moaning will start at 2pm on Sunday, and quite rightly so, the board are a disgrace.

12.) 27 Aug 2019 21:14:57
If pl would allow a football person to come in beside him and he stayed on the business side that would be good. I just don’t think he would hand over the reins that easy, also his bonus etc is linked to the football business making a profit . It would only be arguments all the time as the football side would be asking for better players, Peter would be wanting to keep costs down . Not sure how it would work.

13.) 27 Aug 2019 21:47:03
How should killie not ask for top dollar pot kettle on here sometimes.

14.) 27 Aug 2019 21:49:45
I've officially stopped even looking now at who we're looking at they're just names plucked out the air and nothing seems to be happening it's becoming very frustrating.

15.) 27 Aug 2019 22:00:48
total shambles again, this board can`t do transfers, laughing stock again, when will the fans wake up to this nonsense ever transfer window, Manager making a complete fool of himself again, PL has to go .

16.) 27 Aug 2019 22:43:52
Somebody reads something in the paper and gets all upset about it, because it's in the paper it must be true, it's amazing the power and influence of the media, the papers, TV, radio, now we have the internet aswell, just look at what Orson Welles did in the fifties with the Martian invasion, with the old fashioned radio, now rumours and speculation fly across Twitter and WhatsApp and chatrooms, and before you know it people are having stand up arguments about a pack of nonsense, calm down and carry on, wait untill the transfer window is closed then start arguing.

17.) 28 Aug 2019 00:27:01
I think they will wheel turnbull out on the last day and that will be our wack.

18.) 28 Aug 2019 06:35:21
Bang on Mally. For weeks this page was talking about how we won't let Tierney go on the cheap because he plays in Scotland. Which I agree with. Then the club identify his replacement and won't stump up an EIGHTH of the fee. It makes a laughing stock of the club.

19.) 28 Aug 2019 06:37:21
Aindoh, I don’t always agree with your posts but your spot on the money for me here. Panic and frenzy overload all based upon fake news and social media.

20.) 28 Aug 2019 07:17:18
I feel strongly that we need another few players in during this window but I think everyone needs to calm down until it 100% does not happen. There has been no promises giving by Lennon, he’s just openly told us what he wants and what we are looking for. Everything else is speculation until we get it done. To say that it’s no good signing get players that no one has knowing about on loan is irrelevant when you consider the fact that no one knew about players like wanyama etc. I would like to see a left back in for this game at the weekend but all be can do is hope. If we sign 6 players by Sunday there will still be people on here skating Lennon, the board and the players for not being good enough.

21.) 28 Aug 2019 09:29:15
I don’t see how it was fake news, the comments were said by the manager. After every euro game he came out and said he wanted players in but never got them. He said he or they had a contingency plan if kt left, it would seem playing calmac there was the plan. I know people can go overboard but I can’t see how people don’t realise we go through this scenario every transfer window. Why is it that we have to sit back and relax and see what happens at the end o of the window. My trust in the board to deliver has gone unfortunately .

22.) 28 Aug 2019 10:19:08
That’s Rosenberg out, get Meling.



21 Jun 2019 19:46:10
NL saying in his interveiw players definatley leaving. Hope it is not Tierney, Macgregor, Or Forrest.


1.) 21 Jun 2019 20:04:52
This is the worry - especially with The Leicester Louse keeping tabs on our players. It wouldn't surprise me if the Turnbull deal isn't a sweetener for some bad news on the horizon.
It's also more likely that we will only get decent bids for decent players and the surplus fringe players will be harder to shift?
All we can hope for is that the Board uses any considerable income to invest in real quality and not supplement/ settle for bargains.
We cannot afford to drop our standards, or lose the initiative.

2.) 21 Jun 2019 21:25:37
I fully believe that our "contacting" Turnbulls people last night was because of the below. I was discussing a couple of points with a pal of mine last night and today about the whole situation.

1. we were custard pied by other targets after telling him to jog on.
2. we needed that type of player because we have already accepted an offer from the RAT for Big Tam Rogic.

I then heard that some unknown Journo down south has now stated that a 17.5mil bid will be coming in from RAT City for Calmac. It all seems to be falling into place for Pedro.

Build a half decent team that can do damage with adequate additions (additions we all have been screaming out to get for 3 windows if not more. RB and CB's) and our team could be dismanteled to fill it with Kilmarnock and Motherwell players.

What if the Kieran bids are to good to refuse, also what if the Eddy bids are to good to refuse (not from the fans stand point, we are meaningless to the club) as i appears now. Its ok Pedro will sanction moves for Taylor and Brophy from Killie. Not to mention the still more than possible move for O'connel to fill lustigs boots.

I couldn't care less if they are signing people, they take in 10 players a season and still haven't won a cup. We are being taken for granted and have been for far to long. The fans deserve a better product on the pitch.

We are 3 or 4 very good signings in key areas away from being an excellent football team. This top guys have to be kept otherwise the back lash that will come if we fail to get 9 far less 10 will be on a massive scale.

3.) 21 Jun 2019 21:39:48
Love big tam to bits buts he's no where near fit enough to play in epl he's not even fit enough to play in spl half the time.

4.) 21 Jun 2019 22:05:51
God I hope Rodgers has had a bid for the myth that is rogic.

5.) 21 Jun 2019 22:45:24
Now could be the time to cash in on Rogic. has been a good player for us but we're just not getting value for him over the past 18 months.

I expect a goalie to leave and maybe 2 or 3 other midfielders.

I will end up on that Kerrydale Meltdowns Twitter account if Tierney, McGregor or Forrest go.

6.) 22 Jun 2019 02:08:04
Why do people always think the worst? He could of meant fringe players.

7.) 22 Jun 2019 02:55:17
I Would be amazed if Celtic were willing to let McGregor or Forrest go or if the players themselves would want to go. Ya maybe it's rogic they are after which l won't mind too much. Good player but injury prone and a drifts in and out of games at times.

8.) 22 Jun 2019 05:08:45
Would happily let rogic go for the right money but we must keep mcgregor and tierney. The club should issue a statement saying under no circumstances this season will tierney or mcgregor be going anywhere. Let yer Leicester, Arsenal, Napoli etc know they can’t just turn up here thinking the can take our best players on the cheap. I mean £15 million for tierney. are arsenal having a laugh? That only buys his right leg.

9.) 22 Jun 2019 12:27:02
What would people realistically expect for Rogic? £6m? As he isn't prolific enough in a poor league and his fitness is horrendous. Bit like McCourt, pleasing on the eye bags of ability but the fitness of a pub league player.

10.) 22 Jun 2019 16:48:21
if we can see rogic only gives us a bit of a season so can everyone else and that includes the rat so why would they be interested in paying good money for him, its most likely calmac as i seem to remember the rat saying that calmac had everything to be a top player and any team would want him.



10 Jan 2019 17:27:34
Reports coming out of America that we have signed Gutman and Manny Perez more young players coming in. I do not have a problem with youth as long as there are quality and stay a good few years.


1.) 10 Jan 2019 23:12:02
Manny perez following celtic twitter now, could be nothing or could mean he's signed. Any chance at all you think hell be a first team player this season Ed, if signed?

{Ed007's Note - He might get a run out against a Dundee or Accies or depending on who we get in the cup but I can't see him being a regular starter.}



16 Jun 2018 16:11:12
I have just read that the Edouard transfer fee was as follows
4.5 million + add ons for champions league group stage qualifing for four years + extra if capped for france + his agent and wages for four years
Total 9 million that would tie in with what BR said.


1.) 16 Jun 2018 17:03:20
I can’t believe what you’ve just described is the biggest potential outlay ever by the club, which is what they said in the club statement. Sutton and Lennon were both £6m and must surely have been on at least £25k per week in wages.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 01:44:09
I'll concede that the deal has been done ;) . As far as the contractually binding bump up fees go? . Your a country mile ahead jono. I've not seen the paperwork. No one has. Unless James Forrest decides to write a novela of his life so far with a tasty insider tell all and spills the beans we will never know.

3.) 18 Jun 2018 11:38:58
What’s your source for this breakdown?



22 May 2018 16:24:02
I see we are being linked to a Newcastle defender. They are quoting a price of 8 million it will never happen at that cost no way will Pl or BR sanction that for a player who could not even play in a mediocre PL team.
Also i have not seen any interest in Stuart Armstrong from any sites he will be lucky to get a move to a average championship club. He would be better off staying where he is on improved terms.
And finally i believe that the deal for Osmund Edouard would be more like the same as that of Ntcham.

I wonder what stephan thomson will do today afterall he won, t be able to select more than 3 of his beloved team in the team of the week I wonder who from celtic he will pick perhaps 2 maybe 3 no doubt aberdeen and kilmarnock will make upthe majority.


1.) 20 Oct 2019 19:13:25
Its alright jonace, Michael Stewart will sort him out.



03 Oct 2019 23:33:48
I do not wish to be a kill joy after what was a very good performance tonight. However i have just watched the Arsenal highlights when Emery played his youth team with Teirney have his first game. Wow these youngsters are top dollar and the goals were first class.
It should be remembered that we will face tougher teams the futher we go in this competition.


1.) 04 Oct 2019 10:01:00
Seriously that's what your thinking. Feck Arsenal and Tierney will rag doll them if they have the misfortune to play us. HH.



23 Sep 2019 12:26:16
Good morning everyone. Good comeback on Sunday under pressure, after the St Johnstone result
Turning our attention to the thistle game i would play all those players on the fringes
Bain, Frimpong, O'Connell {if they are ready}; Taylor, Ntcham, Rogic, Bayo. I would also play Hendry, Kouassi, Griffiths and Sinclair.
I know this may seem odd but if you want players to move on you have to put them in the shop window to get clubs to notice them.
You could have an experienced subs bench to cover in case of emergency.


1.) 23 Sep 2019 13:14:45
Bauer. Elhamed. Ajar. Taylor
Ntcham. Mcgregor
Morgan. Rogic. Elyounoussi
Rogic needs game time. I don't mind playing Ntcham further back, just not alongside Brown.

2.) 23 Sep 2019 13:31:50
Jonace, that team would potentially be good enough but a lot of changes. My concern is arguably they might not have narrowed the gap to us but they’ve widened the gap between them an the rest of the pack which means we can’t afford to drop points in daft places either.

3.) 23 Sep 2019 13:37:44
If Bauer and Jullian are still carrying knocks, we could play one of the young defenders we signed on Sept.1st.

4.) 23 Sep 2019 13:51:33
Its league cup not league game. thistle under new management macall. should field a strong side not too many changes (4 or 5) enough until game safe then changes afoot. imo. He will be dying for an upset.

5.) 23 Sep 2019 15:08:36
Strongest team of fit players should start every game. Make a few subs when winning comfortably. One of Lennon's biggest issues during his previous reign was playing weakened sides in cup matches.

6.) 23 Sep 2019 17:05:23
i kind of agree with you to many changes tho this is what rodgers did and it failed.
a few changes yes but keep the core of the team the same. to justify the changes the regulars need to be on the bench just in case lols.
cant wait for wednesday,

7.) 23 Sep 2019 18:55:02
BigBubs gets it👍.

8.) 23 Sep 2019 21:58:30
Not any major changes for me guys. This is the first trophy of the season and winning it has a major effect Not just on our team but the rest of the league.
It slaps them all down and shows our dominance.
Let's get it won.

9.) 24 Sep 2019 08:38:56
Leon Taylor is cup tied.

10.) 24 Sep 2019 10:20:44
I know BR is rat but you can't say he failed. . won every domestic trophy he played for?



21 Sep 2019 10:05:15
Good morning everybody.
Lovely day down here sun shining and evrything is looking good in he garden,
Team are performong very well great result in midweeek, looked very competative at all levels.
Hopeing for a good game tomorrow with some changes to give others game time.
I am gald to be Celtic class act by NL and PL at Ibrokes always proud of this club.
On a negative point poor from some supporters in Rennes letting off flares. We all know what UEFA think of doing this and what others countrys do is no excuse.
I hope the club indentify the fools and take them to court to recover the cost of the fine.

{Ed007's Note - Well you watched a video with guy blow his hand off with a firework for some strange reason, so what ever floats your boat too. I mean come on, obviously both guys were complete morons but the guy you watched was probably using illegal fireworks to try and impress his moronic kids in their back garden somewhere - like happens every year - so he's a special kind of moron. Do you know if he had asthma?

03 Sep 2019 17:10:45
All in all a very good window for us. I would have liked a left sided centre half such as Benkovic, Porteous or McKenna.
We have almost two players for each position now. except left centre half.
It is clear we are stronger than we were a month ago. This makes the defeat to Cluj harder to take we could easily been playing in the CL.


1.) 03 Sep 2019 17:26:09
McKenna? He would have came in and sat on the bench.
No way would he play before Jullien or Ajer and Bitton has been outstanding since he came in.

2.) 03 Sep 2019 17:40:25
Wheeshed jonace😂.

3.) 03 Sep 2019 17:42:11
We have Simo Ajer julien even Bitton can play their and he has been solid for us, is at not where Elhamed played on Sunday aswell? when Bauer was subbed on, Think we are sorted in at position until January mate. Aslong as we don’t go through another injury crisis.

4.) 03 Sep 2019 18:03:53
McKenna the guy is as quick as a 3 legged donky that's just been put down. Shocking defender.

5.) 03 Sep 2019 18:41:15
Big julien uses his left peg not too bad.

6.) 03 Sep 2019 18:47:47
Btw just read that the bhoy o Connell can play left cb according to some of the man u fans he was there best defender in there development squad.

7.) 04 Sep 2019 01:40:38
Having 2 players for virtually every defensive position and everyone up to speed, we should win Home and Away against Cluj. How many more points will we need to go through to the next phase.

8.) 04 Sep 2019 09:35:24
I think we could need 10 to make it through.

I agree with most; replacing the two full backs and Awesome but bringing in Ntcham is questionable. He does not tackle and never plays well away from Celtic Park. If you want to play him bring in Bitton and play him at 10. This would allow us to rest Christie and Macgregor. Having a strong bench would let us make changes depending on the way the game was going.

I hope Turnbull still signs. If he dosn't then it is down to the agent not the club. This could make clear to other players and agents that the club is bigger than anyone person.
The agent concerned may find that other players will think twice before joinng him as Celtic are clearly saying we will not be messed about; take it or leave it.

I don, t think any of these players are any good definately not any better than Ralston or Hendry. If we want good young defenders then look to Mexico and the RB and CB playing for Club America. Edison Alvarez and Jorge Sanchez together they would cost £10 million hopefully for the full package and bringing them over together would definately help them settle in at celtic park and allow us to get the best out of them.

04 Feb 2019 21:09:22
I hear everything people are saying about Hendry, but in his defence he has not been played in his prefered position and without a run in the team nor a regular partner.
Watching Ajer and Siminovic play together I get the feeling this is the pairing in practise matches and in training. They look confortable with one and other likewise Boyata and Benekovic.
He has been played at RB and on right of a three he plays like Ajer in style and physical appearance and i would prefer Hendry or Bitton to Boyata. We have looked much better with ball playing defenders. Boyata may have a role to play in difficult away matches and I would like us to play 3 central defenders at Valencia and Ibrokes and maybe at Pittodrie and Tynecastle.

Yes and he is 32 yrs old if that is the case perhaps we should ask Danny McGrain if he wants to play RB.
