OK guys here are some "titbits" my pal told me last night.
First, a wee disclaimer, even though Brendan kindly sat down with my pal and his friend he is NOT the type of guy to say anything disparaging about anyone on the current board, this is an account of my friend's take on the conversation and what Brendan DID NOT SAY.
My Tim pal got the clear impression that if a serious offer from England had come in the summer, Brendan would have thought seriously about it.
Our manager reiterated he got on with Lawwell "most of the time" (read into that what you will) My friend got the impression it was Bankier that Rodgers was not on the same wavelength as, Bankier has a financial background and counts success by a healthy bank balance.
Obviously our manager did not say anything else on that subject, it was my pal's reading between the lines here.
Brendan was happier talking about the playing side of things and told my friend this.
On Lustig, Rodgers likes him both as a person and a player, but hinted he was coming to the end of his time as a regular in the team.
On Tierney, our manager positively purred talking about Kieran and said he could go and play in any big team in the world, and that he was lucky to have him at Celtic Park.
On Brown similar to Lustig, in that he knows Broonie cannot go on forever, which is why McGinn was targeted. The manager reckons that not playing international games has added about 2/ 3 years to Brown at the top level.
My friend told me more, but I know people hate overly long posts, so I will finish now but will just add, both the guys who met with Brendan are genuine and would not just make up stories, as you can tell by this account, my friend was careful what he told me. I have his permission to relay some of this on here. I am 100% certain what he said was a truthful account.
I am also aware some on here will not believe this and put it down as another "Timalloy tall tale" make of it what you will, all I will say is talking to my pal last night it has filled me with confidence going forward these next few months.

Interesting Tim. I'm hoping that the disappointing summer window together with the rumours about dembele and mcginn and other targets we never got in will ensure we get a couple of quality players in either in January or next summer. Did your friend get any hints of this?

@Henrik, my pal has just texted me saying I was "too diplomatic" he has given me permission to divulge some more things on Scottish referees, Scottish football reporters, Alex McLeish, his thoughts on the current managers in the SPFL AND plans for the future.
It is up to you guys, if you think it is worth posting I will post more. The stuff he told me on reporters and refs is worth a read on it's own.

Timalloy i don't doubt you. But, Lustig although lovable is done at RB; Tierney is class; Brown won't last forever but quitting Scotland will enhance his club career;the board love bank sheets more than football. It's great of you to share info but most on here have already said this stuff. Was there anything more exclusive in the unedited post?

Go for it Tim think most on here would be interested on what you have to say.

Don’t believe any part of your post.

Iceman come on pal come off the fence, don't be so ambiguous lol.

15 Oct 2018 18:58:59
Come on Tim, tell us more.

15 Oct 2018 18:59:41
I should rephrase that Tim I’m not suggesting you’ve made it up but I’m not convinced BR would be so open to your (and his pals) when discussing his players. BR is a wise man he knows how to play the game. So to reiterate I don’t believe any part of your post 😂.

@Iceman read my posts again, Brendan was very cautious in what he said, it was my friend reading between the lines and judging his tone and body language.

15 Oct 2018 19:17:54
Come on Tim you are rippin our knitting. Get it tell pal.

15 Oct 2018 23:23:34
Spit it out man. Are you angling for a serial or book. If you have info let it go. We can judge you retrospectively. as we all are.

16 Oct 2018 01:29:18
I always look forward to your stories Tim. Keep them coming.

I adore Tim’s posts, regardless wherthers the story stems from, they’re brilliant cross section views. Keep it up big man 😁✊🍀🍀.
