Alvaro Gimmines sorry for the spelling is supposed to have joined us? I haven't a clue if it's correct or not according to a commentator on Sly.


1.) 13 Sep 2020 23:35:06
Did he not sign for Cadiz a few weeks ago.

2.) 14 Sep 2020 06:49:04
He signed for cadiz last year and hasn't made an appearance yet.

3.) 14 Sep 2020 08:06:33
The article I read was possibly the worst piece of written word I've seen for ages. How anyone concluded anything from that garbled mess is between them and their primary 3 school teacher.

4.) 14 Sep 2020 11:12:46
Marco he actually signed for them on loan last year and played 13 times, he just hasn't played since the loan was made permanent.

Peterborough have issued a statement saying that Gavin Strachan is joining Celtic as a coach.


1.) 21 Jun 2020 13:14:34
Terms apparently agreed with both peterborough and strachan and to be announced this week, supposedly knows kennedy well after going through coaching badges together.

SLY saying Brendan being linked with the vacant Leicester job l can't see any manager that is currently in a job taking that one they sack them so easy.


1.) 24 Feb 2019 11:59:41
I read earlier he’s on a two man shortlist πŸ˜‚ no mention of the other guy though πŸ€”

Usual fiasco. He’s here for ten.

2.) 25 Feb 2019 07:12:02
He walked out of a bbc interview in mid question about the Leicester job πŸ˜‚.

3.) 27 Feb 2019 15:51:41
Did he aye πŸ€”.

Ed any news on any one coming in before the deadline today?


{Ed007's Note - I've not heard of anyone mate. Roberts agent is meeting Man City officials today to discuss his future.}

1.) 07 Aug 2017 12:36:18
Still have a wild card though eh ed?

{Ed007's Note - Yeah, Kev.}

2.) 07 Aug 2017 12:48:23
It's looking more and more like a late transfer push once qualifiers are settled. I think we are more than capable of negotiating the Astana tie with the squad we've got, especially if we put a few goals past them at CP, but we still need some quality reinforcements if we get to the groups.

3.) 07 Aug 2017 16:51:45

We seem to be writing Astana off a bit. Yes we beat them last time but needed 2 penalties at home. This is going to be tough for us.

4.) 07 Aug 2017 22:01:08
There are no easy matches for any Scottish teams at this time of the season, because of lack of competitive games, I don't know how far Astana are into the season, but why is a team in Asia playing in the CL anyway, I know Australia are in the Eurovision, and Israeli teams should be playing in the Africa cup instead of the Cl,



19 Jul 2017 18:17:40
According to the daily Ranker PL is going to step down from the SPFL Board and going for election for the SFA board instead If so what will that be for Celtic point of view?

Well sums up the whole season really Sevco deserve their first top trophy this year we were miles off. If the board could not see this coming I would say back in September then they are in the wrong job I just hope it's a one off and we get back to where we belong with a completely full management team new ideas on and off the park and new goals going forward.




27 Feb 2021 09:46:00
I don't have a Scooby how the processe goes as far as appointing a manager or a DoF But surely they have talked about this for some time and surely they have names already to interview or approach. IMO IF we are going for a DoF we need him in Yesterday to start getting things going forward I understand people will say we need time to get the right people in I agree but how much time do the board need They must have been talking about this from ATLEAST Christmas There is a lot of work to do from now until the start of the new season and time is running out to get organised.


1.) 27 Feb 2021 10:53:48
The warning signs were there since as early as Oct/ Nov that this season was taking a nosedive and there was a sideshow of other issues and problems that were not just going to sort themselves out.
Most other big clubs would have heeded the warnings and would have had the foresight to meet, diagnose, plan and execute a solution. However, being Celtic, we waited and suffered; jumping form crisis to crisis all the while, we were humiliated in Europe and domestic trophies were being written-off, one by one.
Here we are almost in March, still wondering, worrying and waiting.

2.) 27 Feb 2021 11:45:03
My hope is that DD has learned a painful but valuable lesson this season if all seasons.

In the past 20ish years we have been second best, with little hope, DD has stepoed in and produced MON and BR, the two most successful managees since Stein.

In recent years when it's been left upto PL its been 'success but on a budget' a bit soap on a rope, novell when you opened it at Christmas but as the year went it proved pretty useless.

IF and until it happens, it's still an IF, we bring in a capable D. O. F followed by a progressive Manager then we should finally put an end to the rollercoaster Managerial experiences we've had in past years.

The D. O. F. implements a structure, ethos and process around the way we play, the players we buy, sell, how we train and our youth set up.

The Manager and future Managers are selected and hired specifically to fit into that style of play and structure and the same goes for the playing staff.

3.) 27 Feb 2021 13:10:40
Pedro71 I’m a bit confused with your post when you said for the past 20ish years we have been second best with little hope and that M O N and BR the two most successful managers since Stein . N Lennon won 10 trophies as manager. O Neill and Rodgers both won 7 and as for being second best how many trophies have we won in that period you refer to.

4.) 28 Feb 2021 16:09:43
Apologies Oldkilly, you're spot on. I've got fingers like Richmond sausages and only noticed I ommitted the word 'when' after I posted and on reflection, should have went further back than 20yrs.

My point being, the days when we were (and some possibly still are) on tenderhooks debating which manager ee should bring in as it seems that one person will somehow wave the proverbial magic wand and make it all great again should be a thing of the past.

All I'm saying is that we need to put as much time and investment into the structure of the footballing side of the club as we've done on the commercial side.

Hence the D. O. F. style of play, process etc

I hope that makes sense.



24 Feb 2021 13:21:30
I don't think Kennedy will be interim manager for long as Season tickets have to be sold and surely the board for all their failures this season realises this and know Kennedy will not make a lot of fans part with their money. On that I think we will go for a big name manager I would like to see someone like Ralph Rangnick come in he is out of a job just now Chelsea tried to make him Interim manager at Christmas until the end of the season he turned that down because he wanted a stable and long term contract.


1.) 24 Feb 2021 13:48:21
That would be my choice Tony.

2.) 24 Feb 2021 15:44:35
We can but dream Tony.



21 Feb 2021 22:01:12
Well after that display of football knowledge how can the board possibly sack Lennon? Football genius that no one understands some one the board have had under there wing for quit some time a project that the board look forward to nourish. Some one that if the board are not careful will bring the club down no pack off cards needed when we have Lennon in charge.




15 Feb 2021 12:45:50
How much time does it take to make a good decision? A lot slower than making a bad one it seems. Quote about Celtic won't be rushed into a decision about the manager RUSHED OMG they have had atleast 19 months of clues to make a decision yet they won't be rushed. Heaven help the finance next year when not all the season tickets will be renewed because the board will not be rushed.


1.) 15 Feb 2021 13:31:32
Tony that will be a major issue. i know quite few that ain't renewing under the present management. the club needs to communicate and tell fans what next season looks like.

2.) 15 Feb 2021 13:41:17
tony who would you bring in right now and why remember we play in Scotland and have a certain budget.

3.) 15 Feb 2021 13:52:14
I would like to see us go for someone like Diego Martinez, who has done a great job at Grenada and likes his teams to be solid defensively, which will help us in Europe. Roberto De Zerbi would be a good choice and plays the brand of football that would be appreciated by the fans.

4.) 15 Feb 2021 14:02:43
I am not saying to bring some one in right now although there is good managers without a job just now. And I can't see a permanent manager wanting to come in right now when we have lost the league but a more convincing statement from the board about the way forward should have been expected instead of the gray area that was in the statement. How is that going to renew the trust in the supporters that the club is going in the right direction? To renew their season tickets. The time to stand our present manager down was long ago but they never I am sure a lot of supporters are thinking will it actually happen at the end of the season or will they just fob the fans off yet again? That is why IMO the statement from the club should have been more clear as to the future the club was going. As far as the manager position is concerned.

5.) 15 Feb 2021 14:04:31
I agree Mally and it should have been done in that statement obviously not going into great detail but a clear indication as to where we are going.

6.) 15 Feb 2021 15:03:16
If I didn't know better, it would seem that this season was 'written-off' early-doors by the hierarchy after several warning signs were flashing brightly from August through to October.
European disaster, Unsettled/ unhappy squad, surrendering to Sevco at Celtic Park and failing at home to Ross County in the LC.
Most clubs would have taken emergency action after even a portion of what was going on, however, The Celtic Board did nothing and in the process, threw away the ten, another treble-chance and any respect and credibility, they had accrued in previous years.
I will never know how close NL was to being sacked (if at all) , but here we are playing for what pride the players have left, after some of them for one reason or another let themselves down.
It's imperative that wheels have been set in motion to address our failings and we have appointments and potential signings in place, ready to start, after the final whistle blows on our last game.
Sevco have a settled and confident side and although they are not a great team, they are where they are thanks to our incompetence.

7.) 15 Feb 2021 16:04:59
2 months for an update and we get a few paragraphs of hard done by due to C.V. again Quad Treble on repeat. So just sit back and send us your season ticket money.

The percentage is on the profit of the sale so IF IT was 15 million it would be 6 million the percentage will be on.

DoF will have to be in place before a new manager IF we are looking at bringing in a DoF that is.

That sounds great Number 1 for me then Number 3 if not but that would be great but I think a lot of money would have to go with those pairings.

You would think so Kev but if you look at our last manager and even the way he was appointed with NO other candidate looked at or considered then I don't think anyone could claim that the club always wanted the best.

Surely Celtic will have to put a DoF in first? before we get down to a new manager.

I can't but help thinking that it HAS been Kennedy that was making the decisions on substitutions all along because its the same stupid decisions for substitutions and really starting team selection its like living in a twilight zone I really hope when the new DoF and manager takes over Kennedy will be the first one out the door.

I don't think he will sadly it's been totally negligent from the board even when they had time to try to salvage it nothing changed so I have no reason to believe that we will have as much change as is needed or expected. I just can't see why the board just sat back and done nothing it's like watching a car crash in slow motion and can't do anything about it just so frustrating. They have to look at every department in the club management scouting PR department all have to go and get in new people In all areas.

This is not about what about ary If that was Celtic the Fish would have been on TV by now condemning the actions threatening this and that the police would have made atleast a dozen arrests not just saying don't do it again. This really is the country we live in and adding a political point to this if any one thinks Scotland would be better off on our own just think off the differences that are made between the two clubs as far as the government and police act bad now but heaven help us if we got independence.
