Second bid turned down.


1.) 14 Jul 2019 18:46:37
Maybe arsenal have us confused with the gullibles 25 mill or no deal, are they stupid or what.

2.) 14 Jul 2019 20:20:28
Wouldn’t it be great if Celtic and tierney could come to an agreement were we look after him on the best terms possible, keeping him at the club for life? I know it’s wishful thinking on my part but I’d love to see tierney in the mcstay, Boyd, brown, mould going on to captain the club for the rest of his career.

3.) 14 Jul 2019 20:44:49
People might be surprised by this but I don't want KT staying in Scottish football his whole career.
I want to see him reach the very top of world football and he isn't going to do that in Scotland.

4.) 14 Jul 2019 21:04:08
Arsenal offered 20m upfront with 5 million in addons celtic want 25 million upfront and a 10/ 20% sell on clause or so I have been told.

5.) 14 Jul 2019 21:24:53
I agree with you kev, I'd like to see him at a top club in a top league, just not to sure if arsenal is the right club for him at the moment.

6.) 14 Jul 2019 21:31:06
Wulie the gunners are still a massive club who play a style that suits him. 2 years down there and some of the super powers of football will be queuing up to sign him.

7.) 14 Jul 2019 21:50:27
cannot see them getting cl football, and don't come across as an ambitious club,

8.) 14 Jul 2019 21:51:35
Is it just me or are Arsenal starting to be a pain in the farce? They are acting the goat. 25m means 25m.

9.) 14 Jul 2019 22:04:54
Got to agree wullie, arsenal are always the bridesmaid and never the bride in recent years. It’s a shame there isn’t more clubs chasing him but being injured hasn’t help the transfer chances of KT. I’d love him to stay for another year or two and then get his big move.

10.) 14 Jul 2019 22:05:49
Well said, Kev. I always imagined KT playing in Spain: fancied him to take over from Marcelo specifically, tho' I'm no fan of the team. Total fantasy? Time will tell. I just hope that he choses his move away from Celtic carefully.

11.) 14 Jul 2019 22:42:59
It’s a bit hypocritical for our fans to complain about Arsenal trying to low ball us over the fee for Tierney. We have low balled almost every other team in the Scottish premiership over the years. It’s just the way that the market works. Having said all that, i thought that KT would be here for at least nine.

12.) 14 Jul 2019 23:53:11
People going on about champions league as if that will be a major factor.
6 games at best against big clubs.
Down there he will be playing against the likes of Liverpool man city man Utd Chelsea spurs. That's more games against big clubs right there.
He performs in they games week in week out they will beat down his do it to sign him just like they did VVD
The gunners are still a real big club and definitely a step above the likes of Southampton.

13.) 15 Jul 2019 00:59:15
Kev. well said, buddy! No one wants to hold the bhoy back. He can reach the very top! Pay the money and he goes with everyone's best wishes. Hopefully be back one day.

14.) 15 Jul 2019 04:51:43
I don’t think anyone is doubting the level of football in the EPL, or how big a club Arsenal are. If arsenal really want tierney then I’m pretty sure by now they must know what’s required to make the deal happen. Their first offer was a complete joke. Celtic clearly are open to offers hence why there’s been no statement from the club saying he’s going nowhere so you’d imagine lawwell must’ve told arsenal what’s required to move the situation forward yet they come back with an offer unacceptable to the club. Celtic hold all the aces in this, tierney is Celtic daft and yeah probably would love to go test himself in the EPL, but I don’t think KT would be battering down lawells door causing a scene to push for a move unless Celtic get what they want. The boys under contract till 2023, it’s simple as far as I can see, match the £25 million in a structured way that suits Celtic or he goes nowhere. surely arsenal (or any other club who might be interested now know celtics stance.

15.) 15 Jul 2019 14:33:07
At least it's not just us that does business the way we do. Wonder if there's an Arsenal rumour page going daft the way they're dragging this out.

16.) 15 Jul 2019 18:25:46
The add ons were 2.5m for arsenal winning the World Cup and trump marrying a Mexican2.5m for.



13 Jul 2019 00:13:05
Looks like KT won't be going anywhere this window as his hip troubles have flared up again meaning he could miss beginning of the season.


1.) 13 Jul 2019 05:56:41
I’ll be happy if he stays Kev, hope he gets injury and pain free soon. good thing is we’ve now got boli in and providing he stays fit along with Hayes we’re covered In that position. Hopefully we can make progress soon in the RB area. Seen Lennon saying he’d like to bring two in for that position, hopefully sooner rather than later.

2.) 13 Jul 2019 09:26:49
Not to mention Gutman who I’ve been impressed with in pre-season, however would expect him to be sent out on loan again to gain experience.

3.) 13 Jul 2019 10:11:20
Tompo88 don't think we have a work permit for him do We?

4.) 13 Jul 2019 11:23:51
I got this injury Osteitis pubis, basically the pubic muscle come away from the pelvis, I never played for nearly a year, got treatment a Rosshall, Cortisone injections and physio, the muscle needs to grow back on, you can`t run, it`s very painful, the best think to do is rest but it does get better, slow recovery, KT will not play till next year.

5.) 13 Jul 2019 11:59:42
Never realised that Kev.

6.) 13 Jul 2019 13:52:32
Here Fred Perry, with an injury like that were you looking for" new balls please"? 😜👍🍀.

7.) 14 Jul 2019 10:41:56
Looks like I was wrong eh!



11 Jul 2019 23:14:18
Seems we had a 4 million bid of Smith accepted but couldn't agree personal terms with the player.


1.) 12 Jul 2019 00:03:21
Interesting Kev surely he couldn’t be on that much more playing for Huddersfield.

2.) 12 Jul 2019 07:06:38
That’s the issue with going for championship players or EPL players, the money on offer is ridiculous! There’s absolutely no shame at all in losing out on players down there when it comes to wages! And that’s the bottom line, it’s the wages that kill us! We’ve shown we’ll pay money but the average wage down there for bang average players is frightening! I see what lennons doing going British and in the hunt for a RB but maybe we should be concentrating on the Dutch Belgian or Scandinavian leagues for these players! Better value for money and the wages aren’t astronomical!

3.) 12 Jul 2019 07:06:47
They were a epl team so he'd be on a good wedge.

4.) 12 Jul 2019 08:09:13
But got to say lads if we had been able to sign everyone we had bid for the board would have paid out
17.5 million by now.



10 Jul 2019 20:06:11
Seems the RB from Huddersfield has left their training camp today after hugging a few people to say goodbye.


1.) 10 Jul 2019 20:14:41
That's a solid signing if we get him, he's dependable, strong, no nonsense, a good addition.

2.) 10 Jul 2019 20:58:41
Never seen the Bhoy or actually heard of him but if he is as good as people say then I hope we get him.

3.) 10 Jul 2019 21:02:22
Not long seen the rumours circulating, but to think a LB a CB and a RB have been signed all in one window suggests that we mean business and will no doubt be a few more over the line.
If we only get shot of Ntcham as our main assets then I’d be buzzin!

4.) 10 Jul 2019 22:56:03
Hearing he’s off to stoke. not to fussed by that to be honest! Solid enough but hardly a world beater! Only players who actually want to come thanks very much!

5.) 10 Jul 2019 23:04:03
Just hope it’s us and not Stoke he’s away too.

6.) 11 Jul 2019 00:09:44
Smith signing for Stoke.



02 Jul 2019 16:49:15
Big Marvin has left the building.


1.) 02 Jul 2019 17:10:10
Would like to get the skinny on that one too. Our club is definitely a bit wtf right now.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 17:11:56
Shame to see him go, never got the chance, there was a player in him, gone but never forgotten, well done Lenny, transfer of the decade.

3.) 02 Jul 2019 17:17:52
What? Shame to see him Go? Take it u r taking the piss. Certainly one of the worst transfers Celtic ever had.

4.) 02 Jul 2019 17:18:24

5.) 02 Jul 2019 17:19:02
Best bit of business this window that.

6.) 02 Jul 2019 17:32:31
Hope there’s a sell on clause been put in by Lawell.

7.) 02 Jul 2019 17:50:23
I assumed tamtam meant selling him, finally, was a masterstroke. (Rogic up next)

8.) 02 Jul 2019 18:11:02
A heard the big man was on 25 k a week Marvin compper can anyone clear that up?

9.) 02 Jul 2019 18:51:20
Never forget the clean sheet at Morton big Marv. We should definitely retire shirt number 33. God speed mate.

10.) 02 Jul 2019 19:28:14
End of an era, I mean error.

11.) 02 Jul 2019 20:36:15
Finally we can sing Go - Compper!

12.) 02 Jul 2019 21:52:44
Complete legend!
There’s only one Marv comper!

13.) 03 Jul 2019 01:50:12
Comperr you will never be forgotten.

14.) 03 Jul 2019 07:37:20
I can decide who is better Scheidt or Compper, but when you look the statistic, 3 games versus 1 is easy won by brazilian.

15.) 03 Jul 2019 19:57:13
Statue to be unveiled at his testimonial I’ve been hearing.

19 Jul 2019 21:52:08
JJ your point was that the board wouldn't spend unless kt sold, which is clearly not true as they have tried to spend money.
It's not their fault that Turnbull had a dodgy knee or that Smith wanted to stay in England.


1.) 19 Jul 2019 22:08:27
I get what you're saying mate. i just feel it's all smoke and mirrors.
If Turnbull had been signed would boli have been at the moment.
A leopard never changes its spots. PL is not going to spend the guts of 20million and risk not making the CL or Kt not being sold. and maybe even ON.
Kev you can't surely be happy with what we have done so far with 2 weeks to go before the league starts
5 weeks before we go to ibrox.
Do you think we are stronger at this moment. do you think they are giving
NL a far crack at it and why has it all went quite on the transfer front.
At the end of the day you could be right mate and we will spend 20million. i just don't see it until he knows the spend will be covered.



18 Jul 2019 18:27:20
Just seen a video of Hatem Elhamed and he looks rapid.


1.) 18 Jul 2019 18:43:57
Should be very useful defensive cover and strong competition at RB assuming we sign another RB.



18 Jul 2019 12:59:27
Got to love these Celtic bloggers.
James Forrest is someone I liked reading though I don't always agree with him his writing is good.
Just disagreed with him on Facebook after he was going on about Simpson's assault charge.
Pointed out Lennon and Griffiths both have problems in the past and it didn't stop us signing them.
So he blocked me. 😂😂.


1.) 18 Jul 2019 13:25:35
Kev, all people have a past mate you are bang on there. Simpson should be given his chance he is obviously a good player having played in the pub league most of his career.

These bloggers can be far to critical and unforgiving sometimes not that I condemn what went on in his past.

He could prove to be shrewd business.

2.) 18 Jul 2019 13:28:09
Here's what I wrote EA to get blocked.

We've got a manager that threatened a woman that he's get someone to hold a knife to her throat because she was going to grass him in for messing around with her
We have striker who has been charged by both the SFA and the police for 2 separate acts of racism but we ain t demanding them be kicked out the club or marches to Lennox town.

Now I ain't condoning what he done or saying we should sign him but some serious double standards at work here.

3.) 18 Jul 2019 13:44:54
Just read his piece there Kev. While I don’t condone Simpson’s past, it is in the past and for me everyone is capable of making mistakes in life, it’s how u deal with those mistakes going forward that’s important for me. Must be great to for James Forrest who wrote the piece to be in a position of living a mistake free life and look down on anyone who has made mistakes.

4.) 18 Jul 2019 14:22:21
You sound a drama queen Kev.
No charges were brought against Lennon and he carried on as Bolton manager.
He apologised for his behaviour which could mean he was apologising for getting involved with another woman. The media jumped on the apology and are insinuating it was for something more sinister.
You can always tell which guys watch all the soaps.

{Ed007's Note - This is from his time as a Celtic player.... and there is also cases under D-Notices that we aren't allowed to talk about.


5.) 18 Jul 2019 14:36:22
Leon it's all well documented and Lennon was asked write out about the knife threat in a press conference and didn't deny it.

MY point in the full thing is we can't say don't sign Simpson for his past while turning a blind eye to our own manager and one of our top players.
How that's being a drama queen I don't know.

6.) 18 Jul 2019 14:41:54
You were quick off the mark with that one Ed. Finger at the ready because I can remember on here, not too long ago, when the same subject was brought up and it was being said that Lennon put a knife to a womans throat which was dramatising the whole thing.
There is a good few years in jail, the difference between threatening someone and actually doing it like Simpson and Flanagan.
Its Thursday, I think Eastenders is on later.

{Ed007's Note - Nobody said Lennon put a knife to anyone's throat - it was proven and he apologised because he threatened the woman with a knife. So it would be OK with you if someone threatened your Mrs or daughter as long as the person doesn't actually carry it out, endless streams of abusive calls & texts terrifying them and you wouldn't phone the police?
Unbelievably it's actually illegal to send someone threatening messages AND you can get jailed for threatening someone.


Those pesky laws getting in the way of Neil Lennon's misogyny and sordid private life eh? If people are allowed a second chance how many second chances has Lennon had so far?
Celtic fans are quick to pontificate about Gazza & Flanagan but aren't as keen to shine the same light on 'one of their own' who has a history of abusing and threatening multiple partners.}

7.) 18 Jul 2019 15:08:59
Ed and Kev, you are both correct, its not okay to threaten anyone and mud does stick and it will get brought up from time to time, which is understandable.
Kev, I was only kidding about the soaps because i know your a mans man 💪.

8.) 18 Jul 2019 15:28:32
Pretty sure most people have done something they’re not proud of in life, some worse than others. In the case of Simpson, for me if he’s signed, as long as he gives his all in the hoops then that’s all I’m interested in.

9.) 18 Jul 2019 15:43:43
Ed007 great post.

{Ed007's Note - Scaumbaggery is scumbaggery to me mate.}

10.) 18 Jul 2019 15:46:01
Leon I have 4 weans and a wife. Only time I get a shot of the telly is when Celtic are on and they know not to push it.

11.) 18 Jul 2019 16:39:42
Simpson's personal life aside, he's the wrong side of the hill as a footballer. And wasn't spectacular enough in his prime to take on in his twilight years.

12.) 18 Jul 2019 16:45:31
Jim wasn't he a right important part of the squad that won the EPL for Leicester city?

13.) 18 Jul 2019 17:15:47
I would say he was Kev. Was a right solid right back in the season Leicester won the title.

14.) 18 Jul 2019 18:39:27
Garry like I said I like his writing but don't always agree.
But he constantly gets stuck in to our press and shouts about how they block him on Twitter if he pulls them up but then does the same. Never even said anything rude.

15.) 18 Jul 2019 18:48:19
The blogger Forrest has became like a lot of the posters on this site, grumpy entitled wallopers that would rather complain than get behind the team.

16.) 18 Jul 2019 18:52:01
Lmao Kev83, 😂😂😂, been there.

17.) 18 Jul 2019 19:04:32
A title winner aye bhoys. But one that needs a trial? I think that they were all as important as eachother Kev. Consistent yes, a stand out though, no. He's ok defensively but got nothing going forward. It was a fantastic team achievement by Leicester. But a better achievement was making Simpson look like a title winning player. And that was then. More recently he's been a weak link. He's a championship level player. I think we can aim for better, or younger with the potential to be better.

18.) 18 Jul 2019 19:53:08
Well I can’t say I’ve seen him much lately but the season they won the title and the season after I thought he looked a solid right back that could defend and I’d rather that that one that’s good going forward but poor in defence.

Even if we bring him in I think there will be another right back brought in.

19.) 19 Jul 2019 01:17:16
Too true bhoywonder.

20.) 19 Jul 2019 09:29:28
looks like we're getting desperate.



18 Jul 2019 08:30:39
I still think that we will bring in another RB even if we sign both Simpson and Hatem Elhamed.
Lennon said he wanted 2 RBs and another CB
I get the feeling that they are waiting on someone they are tracking becoming available.


1.) 18 Jul 2019 08:36:53
Kev I’d like also to see a centre forward big time.

2.) 18 Jul 2019 08:51:16
That would be a bonus for me jfp1888 but RB is a must.

3.) 18 Jul 2019 09:10:14
We are RB where we started before the window opened no RB to cover the RB position that Lustig left and by what is rumoured replacing him with a RB the same age as what Lustig is It's a position that should have been sorted out last summer but for what ever reason it was ignored I think the letters RB have been used more than any other ones for at least a year and nothing gets done We all can see it I don't know why the board can't.

4.) 18 Jul 2019 09:28:12
Couple points Tony
We did make multi million offers for 2 different RBs but where knocked back, so it wasn't ignored.
Almost everyone on here wanted lustig away now they are shouting we shouldn't have let him go.
Now seems the board agreed with the fan but offered him a one year deal and he wanted more.
The board can see it as they have bid for 3 RBs over the last 2 windows and brought in toljan who had an opinion to buy at 6 million but he didn't work out.

5.) 18 Jul 2019 09:29:51
Hopefully bayo stays fit and we see what he's got.

6.) 18 Jul 2019 09:57:37
Said this last week and everyone disagreed with me.

7.) 18 Jul 2019 14:21:44
Boli looked good going forward after a nervous start, but as a defender he looked like a typical Celtic defender. Caught out of position, gave away the ball for the goal. If he’s here to be a LB then he needs to nail that’s first. Thought he looked rubbish as a defender, good going forward.



10 Jul 2019 08:27:16
Did anyone notice last night when the bbc guy was getting slapped down by Lennon, he made out he was getting information from someone inside celtic.

When he said someone had given him duff info Lennon asked something like "ye who was that? "

Reporter goes " am not telling you that, you might be talking to him in a minute"


1.) 10 Jul 2019 10:18:44
The plot thickens kev.

2.) 10 Jul 2019 10:36:52
Everything they can to unstable us.

3.) 10 Jul 2019 10:48:02
Nothing to do with the fact the player came out a said it in papers then?

I wouldn't say we are majorly weaker.

Out of the 10 players you mentioned that have left only lustig and benko would get near the team.

Also you've got elhamed down as a right back when he's mostly a CB and Lennon said he wanted 4.

I don't see how you could think that when we've bid close to 20 million on players this window already.
