I don't think Ryan Christie or Scott Allan, have much of a chance of getting a run in the first team when they return, which I think is a shame, I think if I was the manager, they would definitely be in my first team squad, as they are exceptional players, but what about offering them plus money to Hibs for John McGinn, who I think will become the sort of player you could build a team around, .

Agree1 Disagree1

1.5 million with no players is all I would pay for McGinn as he is out of contract next summer.

Aindoh, How many games this season have you seen Christie and Scott Allan play . Probably no more than myself ( watching on the radio doesn't count ) . Now I know that I haven't seen enough of them to decide and I think our manager will watch them and have them watched properly before he decides .
I think he has seen enough of Allan to know he isn't Celtic class .
There is no point of signing players for the craic of it.

£3m + Allan should be enough. Gets rid of him as he's clearly not fancied by BR. I would keep Christie as there's still question marks over Rogic especially if he impresses at the World Cup. Think Christie offers a better attacking threat than McGregor in the final third but McGregor is the better rounded player and stronger further back.

From what I have heard, whenever Ryan Christie plays well - Aberdeen play well and he is often at the source of their attacks and goals. BR has also stated Christie has a future at Celtic - although Allen may well be used as leverage in any deals with Hibs for players?
It probably depends on the question of Rogic, Armstrong, Hayes and maybe Biton having futures at the club, to make way for new talent?

Gaffer has already said Allen is done but Christie is being brought back to state a claim. Also reported Celtic looking to extend his contract for another year.

Old Bhoy, is not about being Celtic class, is about playing people in their most productive positions, you just need to think back to how Ronnie, praise him, praise him, played players out of their best positions to see how some players would look less good than they could potentially be, Lenny is getting the best out of Allen now by making the full use of his creativity, something none of the Celtic managers managed, even Brendan, and Neil is doing it by playing him in his best position, changing the subject a wee bit, I really like Armstrong, and I hope he signs a new contract .

31 Mar 2018 23:47:27
And another thing, I think McGinn might well attract a lot of attention from down south, so don't think there is any way he will go cheap.

Armstrong is the only real ball carrier we have who can drive at defences from deep. Brendan rightly called Tom Rogic the Magic Man. To move on both at the same time would be a big risk we do not need to take. Big goals at crucial moments are Tom's stock in trade.

01 Apr 2018 12:54:44
I think Rogic and Armstrong will sign new deals, maybe two years.

That may well be wishful thinking, but, I believe it. I realise that an even stronger belief that we would get defenders on who would go straight in was wrong. Similar to most beliefs, it was all in my head.

Hope we keep them though. Getting better in the CL will give them more chance of a bigger club.

I can see both moving on in the summer. Ntcham has shown he is capable of replacing Armstrong. But Rogic will be tough to replace. Maybe Musonda might get his chance if that's the case but it still isn't a replacement only a stop gap until the following season. But if reports are true that'll be DDV, Boyata, Bitton, Gamboa, Armstrong, Allan, Roberts, Rogic, Dembele, Edouard and potentially Simunovic all going in the summer. First team squad returning would be Morgan, Christie, Ralston, Sviatchenko, Benyu and Ciftci. Can say the 3 latter look like they don't have a future either. So we've bigger problems than replacing just Armstrong and Rogic.

Aindoh, Are you saying that Brendan isn't as good a manager as Lennon . Do you think Brendan couldn't find the place within the team that would have Allan a brilliant performer . Or are you judging Allan's ability from Radio reports and brief highlights .
Even Allan can look like a footballer under these conditions .
I am afraid you, yourself haven't seen enough to back -up your claims about either Allan or Christie.

03 Apr 2018 10:19:18
Aindoh, really? Scott Allan? So you want to drop any 1 of rogic/ Armstrong just to fit in Allan? first of all are you nuts? and second of all you must have realised watching a game/ listening r completely different as commentators usually big up anything in our own half for the opposition as if it's a goal.
On another note I assume you didn't celebrate the titles won by Ronny? Which would have included a treble had it not been for blatant cheating from officials. This despite him not playing Scott Allan and players supposedly playing out of position, odd that as kt played at left back rogic attack mid, broony centre mid and Griff up front and Gordon, lustig, Forrest n Roberts all playing where they should. Only 1 that played slightly different was Armstrong coming in from the left however we also had johansen at that point.
As for Brendan, he clearly doesn't fancy Allan, we just won a treble and are going for back to back trebles and u want to have a go cause he doesn't play Allan n Lenny does? reason Lenny plays him is he's found his level, he ain't Celtic class. Rogic is way better, I would also like to see paddy Roberts in that number 10 role but allow that 3 to interchange, but even if rogic, Armstrong n Roberts didn't resign I still wouldn't play Allan as Christie is better.
PS I have watched Allan play, not just hear him on the radio so that's what I base this on.
