Forrest straggling with a muscle injury according to Lennon. I'd go with Burke and Sinclair on the wings with Eddy up top I'd Forrest doesn't make it.

Ice Man

1.) 29 Mar 2019 05:53:09
That's a shame because I read an article saying Barisic could be out, meaning Halliday or Wallace would be at left back? Not sure, but Forrest's pace would leave either for dead. In that case it would have to be Burke.

2.) 29 Mar 2019 09:56:11
Another bloody injury get Burke on right he'll absolutely run riot against holliday.

Isn't it great to see the genuine delight in Timo Weah's face due to the fact he's playing for Glasgow Celtic. The way he celebrated both his goals and interacted with the fans as well as the way he talks about the club in his interviews he seems genuinely honoured to be here. And to read his instagram page today he says that we are more than a football club, we are a family. He totally gets it. I'd love him to stay longer than his 6 month loan 🍀.

Ice Man

Hope the wee man starts on Saturday let’s see him get a full ninety minutes 🍀.

2.) 25 Jan 2019 03:04:08
Cannot wait till wee get the rangers in our own pad and restore natural order. The pace through this team will destroy this team of overpayed passengers . Comon Celtic rap up the treble treble asap and dump Valencia 🍀 great days to be a Tim.

3.) 25 Jan 2019 06:13:50
Nice to see genuine delight in celebrations. Maybe some of the players giving him stick could show a bit more as too many these days seem to just shrug off scoring a goal. It's nicer to feel that connection. The boy Bayo coming in looks like he loves a celebration too. I think just that little bit of freshness in the attacking third will raise the bar.

4.) 25 Jan 2019 11:22:29
What players are giving him stick?

5.) 25 Jan 2019 11:25:27
Wylie Christie says they where winding him up all in good banter.

6.) 25 Jan 2019 11:52:31
About his celebration I think lol.

7.) 25 Jan 2019 13:01:59
It's cause when he scored his first goal he done about 5 celebrations at the once lol. all in jest though and apparently has been warmly welcomed.

8.) 25 Jan 2019 15:21:55
I completely agree. It's great to have such a someone with such a positive energy come in and appreciate what we're all about. I love how he gives the glory to God too. Very humble and he can only be a good influence on the rest of the squad with an attitude like that. The added bonus is that he also seems a bit tasty with the football :D.

9.) 25 Jan 2019 15:30:28
Awrite lol, cheers.

Good to see big Benko in full training in Dubai. Injury must not have been as bad as first feared 👍🏻.

Ice Man

1.) 10 Jan 2019 12:04:18
hope it isn't to bad as he was our best ch apart from the gers game he has looked very good.

2.) 10 Jan 2019 13:30:03
What's the chances of getting him in on a permanent basis at end of the season?

3.) 10 Jan 2019 13:48:35
Nane unless we've got a spare 13mill lying around.

4.) 10 Jan 2019 13:56:36
Personally I thought he bottled in the last Glasgow Sevco Derby.



05 Jan 2019 13:32:35
Am hearing Celtic have withdrawn their £2m offer Bayo and have gone back in with a 6 month loan offer.

Ice Man

1.) 05 Jan 2019 16:06:59
Imagine the scenes.

2.) 05 Jan 2019 16:08:11
Some quarters saying a final bid of 2m take it or leave it. typical.

3.) 05 Jan 2019 16:21:34
We sell a 20mill striker and his poss replacement is in the 2m bracket and we baulk at the fee we never learn lawell at his best.

4.) 05 Jan 2019 17:19:37
That 20 million striker was bought in at under a million.
That's how we work. How hard is that to understand.
Bring them in make them better sell them on.

5.) 05 Jan 2019 18:43:38
Let's think about this rationally. How would the papers know what we have and haven't done in terms of bidding for a player?

I very much doubt the people involved are running to the paper to tell them every intricate part of the process as it happens. Which would suggest the papers are just guessing or are being fed from someone else professing to be in the know but who is also just guessing.

6.) 05 Jan 2019 18:54:29
They don't all have to cost under a million Kev83. We can push the boat out and pay 5mil to make 20mil. Still buisness. Jesus, we could spend 10mil to make 20. Obvioulsy not us, but your statements ish.

7.) 05 Jan 2019 19:12:09
That's right kev think a get that my point is there's 20 mill from the dembelle deal and were haggling over a couple of hundred thousand . How hard is that to understand.

8.) 05 Jan 2019 19:21:34
Holy I don't care how much we spend as long as the we get the right players.
But to say stop buy cheap because we have 20 million from dembele who we bought CHEAP is mental.
If we weren't buying cheap with him we would have missed out on the 20 million.

9.) 05 Jan 2019 19:23:58
I get your point Kev but once that business model has borne fruit to the tune of millions upon millions, shouldn't we then start to spend a bit extra for a more established level of player who we could still sell for big profit in 2 or 3 seasons whilst also improving our levels on the field? I'm happy with us going for this lad because we did spend big on Eddy but if we could do it in a couple of other key positions we could really kick on.

10.) 05 Jan 2019 20:23:34
Kevbhoy here's a question? Will spending the 5 10 or 20 million on one player guarantee that they will be more successful than the million pound player?
Or would it be better to scout properly and puck the best player for what we need?

Remember edouard cost around 9 million and he was a youth player.
A fecking youth player.

11.) 05 Jan 2019 20:25:48
I think what a lot of guys fail to grasp is, the money from the Dembele sale will be in next year's accounts and probably most of it will fill the hole of no champions league money and go to the wage bill.

12.) 05 Jan 2019 20:34:12
It takes a hell of a lot of money to provide ist class facilities, playing, coaching and training for our players . We may not be able to match the EPL wages but we have to do our darnest to give them the best facilities possible . These facilities are important in attracting top and Kung players who will eventually leave at big profit . Celtic shouldn't buy in a £10-12 or £15m player as no doubt it would create a problem in our close net dressing room.

13.) 05 Jan 2019 21:02:28
Kev83 nothing is a cert but I think an example of kev Bhoys point is benkovic, we had a chance at him last year for 6 or 7 Mill, baulked at the fee n now look, we'd bite the hand of Leicester for him.

I suppose we have with ntcham and eddy but If you have faith in the process release the funds.

14.) 05 Jan 2019 21:21:12
That all I am saying and kevs went mental just push the boat out a wee bit more. why lose a player we obviously want because of a few hundred grand it's nuts.

15.) 05 Jan 2019 22:33:15
Some people just want to spend the money, as a sort of symbol, like if you spend £5million on a player then you are guaranteed to get a good player, (wakey, wakey, no you are not) , and if you spend £1million on a player then you are guaranteed to get a not as good a player as the £5million pound player (again, wakey, wakey) , so these people would be quite happy if we spent £5million or more on an inferior player than the one we could get for £1million, because at least the board were showing intent.



03 Jan 2019 19:09:36
So we've increased our bid for Bayo from £1.75m to £1.8m. A bit embarrassing really. I'm all for negotiating but to up our offer by £50k. If we really think this player will make a difference make a proper offer.

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - I was told earlier this evening that there has been no second bid and that the figure being reported as the initial offer is "wildly inaccurate".}

1.) 03 Jan 2019 19:50:26
Hopefully that's the case Ed. Do you reckon Bayo and Weah are the two strikers that BR is bringing in or will Weah be used as a winger?

{Ed007's Note - Knowing Rodgers it could be anywhere across the front.}

2.) 03 Jan 2019 20:21:47
People need to stop reading the national press or Twitter.
Stick to Celtic sites like this.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 20:29:18
Or left back. 😊.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 20:30:05
What’s your thoughts on Defoe Ed?

{Ed007's Note - As I said on another thread - I've never seen the fuss about Defoe and have had many a debate with posters about him over the years, all he ever had was pace and at 36 that's long gone - his overall record of 242 goals in 638 games is a joke.
I'd have been seriously pi$$ed off if we had signed Defoe 6 years ago.}

5.) 04 Jan 2019 04:20:00
So with the bid for Bayo inaccurate I hope that we might have bided higher than the 1.75/ 1.8m then am hopping then ED?

{Ed007's Note - That's how I took it.}

6.) 04 Jan 2019 12:32:00
All about opinions, but Defoe would have been a brilliant signing 6 years ago.

7.) 04 Jan 2019 12:54:34
I don't massively rate defoe but how is 242 goals in 638 games a joke? that's an average of about 1 in 2.6 games. Not bad considering he has played for some crap teams. Rooneys overall is 1 in 2.3 or something and he wasnt a bad player.

8.) 04 Jan 2019 12:46:25
I dunno Ed, 6 years ago he might have been a decent signing.

9.) 04 Jan 2019 13:15:01
Aye but Rooney was moved all over the park and very rarely played as an out and out striker.
Defoe ( who I did rate) played exclusively as an out and out striker.

10.) 04 Jan 2019 14:41:18
Well rooney was just an example. Defoes goals per game is decent was my point as he did play for a few lesser teams therefore less chances.

11.) 05 Jan 2019 00:38:33
What has his strike rate been say, in the last three years, just out of interest.

12.) 05 Jan 2019 01:20:40
4 goals in 28 appearances for Bournemouth. 38 goals in 115 appearances since 2018. I wouldn't be too worried about him.

13.) 05 Jan 2019 06:41:41

14.) 05 Jan 2019 22:32:35
Defoe is a joke of a signing . No club in England would take him now . Fairly good 3 yrs ago, good 10 yrs ago.
Davis return is Rangers2012 buying a from the occupied 6.
If these deals do go through they won't benefit Rangers2012 on the playing pitch.

In light of their recognition and incredible display for a big Billy McNeill how about a friendly against Athletic Bilbao. Home and Away friendlies would be brilliant. Create a bond with a great club and show our appreciation for what the did for Caesar 🍀.

Ice Man

1.) 13 May 2019 18:27:24
Celtic played them in a friendly a few years ago to celebrate the opening of their new stadium, I think it was 0-0.The Green Brigade went in force and made a good impression with the locals.

{Ed007's Note - Home and away friendlies were being discussed before Billy McNeill's death.}

2.) 13 May 2019 19:20:21
Their display was awesome, I just hope none of them watched that embarrassing performance yesterday.

3.) 13 May 2019 19:43:02
Either way brilliant display from what I saw on the net. Hats off to Bilbao and welcome to Parkhead anytime.



12 May 2019 20:32:21
Well now that I've had time to calm down what can be said about today.

Wow what an inept performance to say the least. Losing a game of football I can accept but that pathetic performance is downright unacceptable. To just lay down to that lot is an utter disgrace. We seem to have this anti Celtic and football style of play where we are at a walking pace and continually passing backwards and sideways. It's like we have forgotten how to attack.

Their weakness is their defence and it took us until the 84th minute to register a shot on their goal. It's utterly unacceptable. Rogic waste of a jersey as is Burke. McGregor a passenger and Edouard again never a £9m player for me. And before anyone gives me "he's scored 20 goals this season" I don't care he does not offer enough. Boy do we miss Griff.

I was looking forward to seeing what the summer brings in terms of manager and players, now I'm rubbishting it. We need to get this right. As the GB stated. 10 in a row is not a project. Over to you mr Desmond and the Celtic board 🍀.

Ice Man

1.) 12 May 2019 21:31:41
How on earth do we miss Griff

1 good season in what 4 or 5 years and he’s not been considered number 1 since Rodgers took over

I highly doubt when he returns that he will be good enough for us, would prefer to be wrong but can’t see it.

2.) 12 May 2019 22:15:00
Kev T 1 good season? Nonsense.
The guy has scored over 100 goals in under 200 games.
Any squad would miss that.
He's a major asset even if just coming off the bench.

3.) 12 May 2019 22:16:21
198 games 104 goals for someone mostly benched or played out of position.

Terrible record eh?

4.) 12 May 2019 22:32:20
If he was a Brazilian called Grifinho people would say he's a £20mil striker.

5.) 12 May 2019 22:50:13
Kev T are you for real? Griff has scored over 100 goals for us. When you no longer have that of course you we are going to miss him. The boy is a born goal scorer no matter who he plays against. You’re entitled to you opinion mate but I’m going to have to disagree with you on this.

6.) 12 May 2019 22:53:14
Shows how bad a comment that is kev t if he and tesla are agreeing it's mince.



28 Apr 2019 00:10:55
Ed what do you know of the young fella Cameron Harper. I thought he was terrific in the Youth Cup Final. Our standout player by a distance. Hopefully he's not to far away from a first team call up.

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - To be honest I don't know that much about him except that the coaches and a couple of guys I know that follow the youngsters have high hopes for him if he keeps progressing the way he is. At 17 though I'd be surprised to see him regularly getting near the first-team squad for a while yet.}

1.) 28 Apr 2019 09:57:49
I think that's a big problem of ours especially as a club who is trying to develop and sell.

We are too scared to bring in the younger players on a regular basis.

Most other clubs similar to us aren't scared to field a 17 year old but we are.

2.) 28 Apr 2019 11:10:26
I didn't watch the game, but reading the comments there seemed to be a few talented players on both sides, and whilst The rangers side was a well coached, well drilled unit of a team, while the Celtic one was a loose collection of talented individuals, time for a shake up of the youth coaching setup?,

3.) 28 Apr 2019 16:16:00
In our team this season alone
Hendry have all spent time in our youth system and have all played 1st team football this year.

I wouldn’t like to see young Dembele in the squad yet. He was completely overpowered by their u/ 19’s in the cup final. The young fella just ain’t ready yet.

Ice Man

{Ed007's Note - Dembele is nowhere near ready for the first team and it's sheer stupidity on Lennon's part to even consider putting a kid like him in against what we know will be a very physical Craig Levein side. If he plays I'll just be hoping he doesn't get injured.}
