Looks like we are going to miss out on rekeem Harper. That's liverpool and Juventus talking to him.
Hopefully we can still pull it out the bag.

If they are it’s a dead duck. Plucked marinated and cooked. Feck, Bansley can pay more than us. :)

2.) 23 Jun 2019 11:39:33
Missed the bus again, he was at Celtic Park weeks ago, why do we always faff about when we have the initiative, if reports of big money offers for KT and Calmac are true and Lawwell is even considering selling them given the underwhelming transfer targets we are getting bandied about then surely Harper would been approached by now,
I think this could be a deadline day scramble fest yet again and we could pay the price for it .

3.) 23 Jun 2019 12:16:49
Thought we'd dropped our interest?



16 Jun 2019 11:37:32
Please tell me we ain't in for Adam Matthews or Gary hooper or giving lustig another 2 years.
We wouldn't just be standing still with these signings but taking a massive backward step.
I know the window has just opened but why we are starting pre season without a new signing is criminal.
Players could and should have been lined up.
Someone has to be signed this week and give the place a lift.

Jungle john

1.) 16 Jun 2019 14:21:51
Yes give the place a lift, would make a nice change from lifting trophies.

2.) 16 Jun 2019 16:56:43
Id give lustig another 2 years as the number 2 RB.

3.) 16 Jun 2019 17:25:35
On his current salary Kev83 as that's apparently the reason he's leaving?
Father times definetly caught up with him and I think Celtic are correct in reducing his salary in the offer to extend his contract.

4.) 16 Jun 2019 18:10:01
Would definitely keep lustig as a back up RB which would mean reduced salary. Definitely need a new RB with experience and definitely not Adam Mathews.

5.) 16 Jun 2019 18:12:33
I'd back board with that one tae pod.
If he's playing a reduced role then reduced wage but if he can get more else where then good luck to him.
I do think he played very well after Lennon arrived and he didn't need to bomb forward as much.

6.) 16 Jun 2019 18:48:06
Carl jenkinson is also been linked what's yer take on him guys.

7.) 17 Jun 2019 12:39:24
Lustig has been a great servant of Club but in my opinion his time is over. I don’t see point in keeping him as a number 2 RB as he’d be rusty coming in at his age and stage of his career. We’re 2 away from 10IAR and we can’t afford to be sentimental when it comes to players etc. I have a few mates on the Dark Side and they say same about their attempt at 10. They were too loyal to players who were passed their best.



05 Jun 2019 19:34:25
If the transfer rumours are to be believed, then some of Europe's top clubs could be circling around KT.
For debates sake what would everyone's selling price be.

Jungle john

1.) 05 Jun 2019 19:45:16
As long as he wants to be with us I wouldn’t sell him, not only one of our best players but he has a massive connection with the fans. Historically we don’t replace our big assets with one big signing, say if he went for 20/ 25 million . We would be lucky if the manager was given 8-10 of it and generally that would be spent on 3/ 4 players . So a massive not for sale sign for me, debate or otherwise jj.

2.) 05 Jun 2019 20:12:01
Think the bench-mark is easy to set in this case: something around what Liverpool would expect for Robertson. 40+.

3.) 05 Jun 2019 20:17:58
Lustig 2 year deal done.

4.) 05 Jun 2019 20:40:19
Is he arriving with Mark mcghee and Gary Parker tamtam?

5.) 05 Jun 2019 20:43:51
False alarm, Twitter nonsense, no deal, yet.

6.) 05 Jun 2019 21:02:24
Sorry about the rumours, must be on the wrong page, Parker did say no, still time for McGhee and Lustig.

7.) 05 Jun 2019 21:10:24
Parker didn't say no. He was never offered it.

8.) 06 Jun 2019 07:45:12
Tam get off twitter mate.



29 May 2019 21:43:43
Am hearing fees agreed for O'Donnell and turnbull.

Jungle john

1.) 30 May 2019 07:37:23
Ad take both.

2.) 30 May 2019 07:56:16
Brilliant that's all we need.

3.) 30 May 2019 11:09:24
David Turnball is a class playmaker and might cost us a bit to get him.

4.) 30 May 2019 11:39:39
I like the look of turnbull would be worth a punt.

5.) 30 May 2019 12:08:53
Turnbull is just what we need - so I hope it's not BS - his style reminds me of Phil O'Donnell RIP.

6.) 30 May 2019 12:40:42
Hopefully it's true. Both have had good seasons. Turnbull could be a serious player and definitely worth it. Also like O'Donnell who has been rock would for kille and had good games against us. Nice that he came through the youth system here too.

7.) 30 May 2019 12:55:19
Turnbull I'd be happy with but would hope for better than O'Donnell.

8.) 30 May 2019 12:57:36
Turnbull will finally be the replacement for Armstrong we never got. Goals through the middle. We sold Armstrong and replaced him with Mulumbu (free) only to loan him out. Ridiculous transfer strategy.

9.) 30 May 2019 14:20:54
I hear motherwell want 4 million, think that would be enough for lawell to body swerve any deal.

10.) 30 May 2019 16:45:31
Anytime I've seen O'Donnell against us he has played pretty good, I would have him in before Lustig now.

11.) 30 May 2019 23:23:23
4 million sounds like a fair price,4 million would have got McGinn.

12.) 31 May 2019 00:22:09
O'donnell could be a real coup but still think we should be going for a proven quality right back and maybe have him as back up, Ralston is still here aswell mind.
I know the lad turnbull has had a really good season but would he get a game in our midfield? Worth taking a punt imo considering what happened with mcginn last summer and the season he's just had, should be a lesson learned.

13.) 31 May 2019 00:52:35
No it wouldn't aindoh cos mcginn didn't want to come to us.



27 May 2019 17:00:51
If we are being linked with tomori of Derby then I hope it happens.
He looks quality.

Jungle john

1.) 27 May 2019 17:52:34
Same John looks a very capable young centre back. There'll no doubt be competition for him.

2.) 27 May 2019 19:16:32
Well let's hope we try get it done asap as with derby no winning today gives us a great chance.

3.) 27 May 2019 21:49:00
Derby staying down hopefully the offer of silverware and European football can tempt him up here.

4.) 27 May 2019 22:58:36
Is he not on loan from Chelsea?

5.) 28 May 2019 12:55:28
He is aindoh yes.

6.) 29 May 2019 02:06:29
marked arguably the best striker in that league out the game on Monday. Kinda reminded me in denayer when he came in and quick to get a foot in.

In the last few months I have back the club when lots were slaughtering them over the the managerial appointment ect, however heading out to a training camp with a depleted squad and no new signings is mismanagement of the highest order.
Smoke and mirrors as usual.
Why no one has let the fans know what is happening with Turnbull shows the contempt in which they hold us with.
Yes people will say there's time to go in the window but there should of been deals ready to go.
Other clubs are getting their business done and getting players settled in and we are scratching around playing at being a big club.
Time to start making some announcements.

Jungle john

1.) 24 Jun 2019 16:56:07
They did they leaked a pic of turnbull in a celtic top. Medical delayed till today. Nothin to worry about.

2.) 24 Jun 2019 17:43:35
You really think The Celtic Board hold the Celtic fans with contempt? Bit far mate come on. They could probably do better to keep us updated with things, but get a grip they've told us they are working on multiple signings and I don't see how much more they can do other than be more specific on who these players are.



19 Jun 2019 18:50:37
People are saying we haven't had a good window in years, players coming in and not making an impact.
Yet we have won everything.
Can you imagine we bring 4 or 5 players in who hit the ground running.
We will be untouchable again.
That's my hope for this window. if the Turnbull saga shows us anything I think it's that we will have a busy window and money will be spent on the right players on our terms.
Who ever comes in will be wanting to play for us clearly Turnbull didn't.

Jungle john

1.) 19 Jun 2019 19:16:53
That's what we need is a good strong window. A few more faces moved on to fund quality ones coming in. All strikers will be available next season and hopefully we don't have same injury issues. If we can add quality 5-6 players amd keep our star players we will have had a very good window.

2.) 19 Jun 2019 19:54:04
We have been/ are going to find it harder year-on-year to compete against the huge salaries on offer in England. Kids are being offered lifechanging contracts and 9/ 10 times money will sway them.

Every so often a player will come along who will buck the trend and put development and honours in front of money. Sadly, they are becoming more of a rarity.

We need to concentrate on our youth system and developing players. Obviously we will always need to spend and supplement that with experience. We also need to retain our Tierney's, McGregor's etc. because we just don't have the clout in the transfer market to get players of a similar calibre.

3.) 19 Jun 2019 20:37:08
Our Club will strengthen, to build on what is a historical period as a supporter. Think you should stop listening to the "people" and use your own intelligence. 10 IAR and a good run in Europe is all I want. oh and entertaining and winning football on the park.

4.) 19 Jun 2019 21:16:36
Welcome back abighandforgeremybeadle. your views are normally fair . A feel Celtic did right here . Offered the asking price . Offered a fair wage . No more pissing about like mcginn. It wasn't accepted, move on . Where do we go from here? Would u rather sign frees no one wants or puts offers in ? The reason a say that it others bid for edmunson and they were out at Penney. Let them bloat their squad as we reduce . A want superstars like the rest. The window is just open . Yes a rb n ch is priority . Breath deep . We have already offered to spend more in hard cash than that lot ever could!

5.) 19 Jun 2019 23:59:37
Calmac and Tierney have to be tied down at the end of the season, with the money saved from Brown's contract. Another £15k each would make them stay and not be tempted to head South. I must say the way the transfer season isn't going for us so far, i'm glad Sinclair signed on for another year.



18 Jun 2019 19:08:17
Turnbull might have bucket loads of talent but for me he has bottled it.
If he had faith in his own abilities he would have signed and tried to make the position his.
He clearly never wanted to come and I think we have dodged a very expensive bullet.
We move on.

Jungle john



15 Jun 2019 06:01:46
On the surface the player seems to be showing no desire to play for us. clearly driven by money.
That's why I was hoping to wake to the headlines of Celtic pulling out of the deal.
It all leaves a sour taste.
Motherwell putting the story out just stinks of letting other clubs know what's going on.
Over 10 grand a week for a prospect is probably over and above what we would normally go.
For me it's over. get the 2 English boys in for half a million and let Turnbull go to the championship.

Jungle john

1.) 15 Jun 2019 09:19:08
Well said mate. seems the agent used us for a better offer down south. I do not under stand the greed of players.

2.) 15 Jun 2019 09:29:54
Withdraw the contract offer and the bid to Motherwell and let him join Sevco😂😂.

3.) 15 Jun 2019 09:45:10
Just business.
Most of us would walk over broken glass for the chance to pull on the hoops but that is passion and heart ruling head.
The reality is, His agent realises the window has a long way to go and there are clubs down south who can give him a lot more cash in personal terms.
imo We don't do our business through the media but we should announce that we have pulled the deal off the table and move on.
Personally, if figures are true, it was a good offer and if he thinks he can do better elsewhere then so be it. He should take a long hard look at the others who used us and then it did not happen for them (Hooper is a fine example)
I hope he lives to regret this decision but that is the heart side of me talking now.

4.) 15 Jun 2019 21:18:54
better to find out now if the lad is only motivated by money, if that is the case he could cause problems further down the line. you shouldn't need to be coaxed to play for glasgow celtic. you should think it a privilege. hail hail.



14 Jun 2019 20:01:20
I don't claim to know how transfers work.
But surely Celtic would have discussed terms with Turnbull's agent prior to the fee being agreed for the simple fact of this happening.
We wouldn't agree a bid fee if they we thought he might not come.
If the player wants to come then he should be telling his agent to make it happen.
If he doesn't want to come then we dodged a bullet.

Jungle john

1.) 14 Jun 2019 21:02:51
Maybe the boy realises he's not going to be a 1st choice. And would prefer to play another year at Motherwell and then be more established.

Tbh and it's only my opinion but I feel we need a Harper type before a Turnbull type player.
But I would be happy to get both.

Yes kev but a younger back up is going to naturally give you more energy.
All that is happened to lustig is that father time has caught up with him.
He ain't got the legs and he will only get slower with a lack of game time.
It's only my opinion but RB is a priority position that needs addressed.

A lustig not playing every week doesn't work. his fitness when called upon wouldn't be up to it.
We have to get a new RB. and possibly Ralston as back up.

Looks like bit kev but for me especially against sevco we were to passive with no aggression in the middle of the park. i think he could replace kouassi. I think Turnbull will add more goals and compete with RC and TR for the advanced position but RK would have given us the strength and ability to break play up given time.
Kouassi just doesn't cut it for me and it would be a step up in my opinion.

I was told the fee had been agreed for turnbull. but we all hear from "someone in the know". is it true, well that's up for debate.
But you can't blame any young Scottish talent from moving south when you see what Robertson and mcginn are producing.
The good sign for me is that we are, as yet, not overlooking the really top Scottish talent in the league. in my opinion this boys the best of the lot.
I know the debate was raging about on about nitcham and although an obvious talent he did not contribute much for me last season. along with rogic they both flattered to deceive.
Would a move away for both players be good for all concerned?
