He’s gone with his staff but left us Lee congerton 😂.


1.) 26 Feb 2019 16:20:32
Wonder if he will let us extend benkovich loan.

2.) 26 Feb 2019 16:21:23
Says it all 😂

Though to be fair Congerton might be identifying good targets and the board aren't putting the money up. Who knows?

3.) 26 Feb 2019 16:28:29
And John Kennedy👍🏻.

4.) 26 Feb 2019 17:06:05
Glad he's left kennedy.

5.) 26 Feb 2019 17:25:07
He’ll take Benkovic and be back for Tierney and McGregor in the summer and why wouldn’t he? If he offers £40m for the pair Lawwell will bite his hand off as that will offset David Moyes failing to get us into the Champions League because that how Lawwell’s mind works unfortunately, I lay the blame for today’s event squarely at the Celtic board’s lack of ambition, it’s shocking!

6.) 26 Feb 2019 17:48:55
Kennedy needs to go too.

7.) 26 Feb 2019 18:28:13
Lawwell should be reviewing his role in this saga, but we all know he won’t . every time we have a successful manager he pisses them off, O’Neill, Strachan, Lennon and inflicted Mowbray and Deila on us, to me he is the problem here, he’s only interested in banking money and pocketing his obscene bonus not taking the club forward!

{Ed007's Note - Peter Lawwell is told what to do by the board.}

8.) 26 Feb 2019 19:17:27
Kev83 just out of curiosity why are you glad he left Kennedy?

9.) 26 Feb 2019 19:51:12
Because everything u have read or heard about him seems like he is a good coach.
Plus right now we need someone in there that has worked with these players.

10.) 27 Feb 2019 01:18:30
That’s my biggest fear if he comes in for Mcgregor Tierney or Forrest how could the board or the players turn down that money treble wages and about 40million.



21 Jan 2019 06:19:28
Linked today with a Porto right back called fonseca. He’s been loaned out a couple of times already and apparently is available for less than 2million. Haven’t seen him but if there’s any substance to it, it would seem we are well down our list of right backs. Started the window with talk of 6milion Belgian, then a 4 million Norwegian, now a 2 million under 21 player who can’t get in his own side .


1.) 21 Jan 2019 06:38:11
. and if Pedro succeeds with his usual plan, we will get someone in on loan for nowt.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 06:39:34
Quinn1888, I love your positive outlook. lol
We'll just have to wait and see who comes in. HH.

3.) 21 Jan 2019 08:07:21
Only 21 and Militao who is currently being chased by Real is Porto's main RB and has played every game for them this season so not surprised the lad can't in the team.

Report said Juve were looking at him in the summer, if true the lad must have something about him. Lad's contract is coming to and end which would explain low value.

4.) 21 Jan 2019 08:55:23
Have a look at his Wikipedia account. A celtic fan seems glad we are after a eight back haha.

5.) 21 Jan 2019 09:41:22
The Belgians club are quoting 10 million for him and he said he wants to play in one of the top leagues.
The Norwegians club have said he's going no where. So I fail to see how that's lawwels fault.
Isn't that the whole point of having a list?

6.) 21 Jan 2019 10:04:57
Just because it's rumoured doesn't mean it's true. We might never have been after the Belgian. We will see who is in come end of the window then we can moan or praise the signings.

7.) 21 Jan 2019 10:20:48
The £6M Belgian was struggling to get into his own side not so long ago Quinn. This obsession with transfer fees is baffling. We've already shown that if the value is there, the club are willing to spend good money. Tbh from any clips etc I've seen I think Elabdellaoui looks much better than Castagne but that's only YouTube I suppose.

8.) 21 Jan 2019 11:51:28
We’re never going to pay £6m for a right back, nor would we pay £4m for a 28 year old. £2m for a former U-21 aligns with our transfer policy.

9.) 21 Jan 2019 15:44:33
I agree with you Kev Bhoy regarding the Norwegian, from the boys I’ve seen he seems to be the better option. With regards to them saying they don’t want to sell, realistically what does that mean nowadays . We didn’t want to sell loads of players but if a buying club puts up the money we and the majority of clubs around all change their mind. If we really wanted him we may have to pay what they want within reason.

10.) 21 Jan 2019 16:17:07
Exactly quinn within reason but if a club ain't willing to sell then it takes big money to get the player.

11.) 21 Jan 2019 16:31:11
Quinn and Kev, from the paper talk it would appear that someone, somewhere thought, or was told, Castagne was worth about €6M. Then all of a sudden Lazio, Fiorentina etc. are "interested" and then the price is €10M. If any of this is actually true but none of these other teams bid then that price may well drop again. I did read something saying the player himself was pretty uninspired by the idea of playing in Scotland - again though, God knows who these "sources" actually are.

12.) 21 Jan 2019 18:39:18
Wouldn't mind us going for someone like Petar Stojanovic at Zagreb. Big Benko could sell him on a move and wouldn't cost too much. Remember him doing well against us while at Maribor.



06 Jan 2019 08:33:28
Ed, you may have spoken about this before but can you or someone else explain who sets up the transfer deals . Say for instance, the forward we are linked with . We bid 1.7 million, we obviously scout him but who sets his value? Is it Rogers saying don't go above 2 million, or Congerton. Or would it be Lawwell ( who has been accused of penn pinching loads of times ) . If Brendan wants him could he say just pay what they want? For some reason we take ages to get players over the line, I’m sure i read we had a deal in place for Odsonne at first with PSG, let the time pass then they increased their value .


{Ed002's Note - I can't explain for Celtic but I can tell you how other clubs decide. The scouting staff will prepare reports on players and provide an idea about price; coaches will look at the players but have no idea about price; they will go to a Director of Football (or perhaps a mix of the finance director and others responsible for the monies) and say we would like this player and we think he will cost £x. Checking against available budgets, the club will likely approach his agent to ask if the player might be interested in the move and a broad idea about the package the player would want, and any broad idea about what the club would want - and what terms they may be open to (cash up front, spread over a year etc.). This sits inside the overall transfer process which looks something like this:
The process should be along the lines of: Clubs will typically informally ask an agent (a) if the player is going to be available, and (b) would the player consider a move to the club. There may be some broad discussion on the sort of deal that would be offered but no more than that. If the answer is yes, it is then necessary for the club to approach the player's club to ask if they would be willing to sell and if they would grant permission to speak to a player's agent formally about a transfer and possibly even the player about actually making a move. This will typically involve either broadly (through an offer) or actually agreeing a fee and responsibility for any significant costs (agents fees etc.). Once this has happened the club will be able to speak to the player's agent and perhaps the player himself to look at the package that will be involved. Many players are looked at and discussed at a high-level with agents and clubs; a subset of those have an offer placed; a subset of those involve discussions with the player's club; a subset of those involve discussions over terms, and; a subset of those go ahead.

Agents will often try and get more specific details of wages and other financials before they should - but most clubs are happy to follow this process. Players will often talk to other players about moves but, whilst wrong, is tolerated as it would be impossible to manage.

Alternatively, a selling club may ask an agent to find a new club for a player and he will talk directly to poetntial selling sides about the fee, personal terms and interest.

The rest of the time agents will be on fishing trips trying to find interest in their players.

In terms of what happens when the negotiations take place, broad agreement (player available and open to discussions, understanding of the price) will already have been reached. The clubs will meet to discuss the details of the transfer fee, other costs associated with the move and the structure of the payments and any additional fees (e.g another €5M for winning the Champions League etc.) but this does not take a "few days".}

1.) 06 Jan 2019 20:06:05
So for the likes of Dembele Ed, have you any idea how much Celtic would have received up front. I'm assuming Lyon wouldn't pay all £20m or whatever it was all at once? In other words, how much do Celtic have in the pot?

{Ed007's Note - The Dembele fee was paid in full after Lawwell played hardball.}

2.) 06 Jan 2019 20:52:48
Isnt that pretty unusual? But means we have £20m in the bank to splash on a striker, cb and rb is pretty useful haha.

{Ed007's Note - Yes it's unusual but after Dembele's antics Lawwell wanted to get a dig back at them and that was it - he could leave if Lyon stumped up the fee up front which really was putting the ball back in their court, if Lyon refused it would be their fault the transfer didn't go through and Dembele would probably still be a Celtic player.}

3.) 06 Jan 2019 21:50:15
Good old pistol pete.

4.) 06 Jan 2019 22:45:44
So with all that said and now done Well done Mr Lawwell but we know need a replacement thanks MR Lawwell hopefully.

{Ed007's Note - I say it again and again, you can't fault Peter Lawwell for the money he brings into the Club, it's when it comes to spending it there's a problem.}



19 Aug 2018 18:32:53
Another site reporting we are closing in on Scott McKenna . We better get a bigger banner lads because that is definitely settling for mediocrity . Are defence is shocking at the minute and we are going to sort it out with a player that’s sidelined for another 6-8 weeks . And when he’s fit he’s probably no better than Hendry . Please don’t let this be true.


1.) 19 Aug 2018 19:01:23
Scoťt McKenna? Why not just bring in Paul McKenna to convince us this is a step forward?

2.) 19 Aug 2018 19:44:26
Haha love the comment about Paul McKenna however I would say he knows the Scottish league well, has potential and more to the point. we don’t have many other names flying around. I’m hoping there is only going to be an announcement made when it’s finalised but until we solve this problem area out, I’d go with Lustig at CB and Gamboa at RB.

3.) 19 Aug 2018 21:48:16
Buying a player who is injured?

4.) 20 Aug 2018 13:35:21
If we bring in Paul McKenna he can hypnotise him into believing he’s Beckenbaur and not injured. Job done.



03 Jul 2018 15:47:58
More news coming out today that kt has agreed wages with Everton, I wish he or the club would just come out and say, no I’m staying at Celtic . Until this is done the rumours are going to keep coming about him leaving. I’m starting to think he may be off 👎.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 16:04:01
Who is the consultant saying this and what are his credentials in terms of this particular transfer? Because if he is involved in any way he shouldn't be discussing it in public. If he isn't involved, how would he know what's going on?

2.) 03 Jul 2018 16:48:19
Daily record site had it on their podcast, someone from the premier league apparently . It now looks like it’s been regurgitated onto another site. Surely if wages were to be discussed it wouldn’t involve the premier league, surely it would just be Everton and kts advisers / agent.

3.) 03 Jul 2018 16:56:30
Politely put Kev. id have just said get a grip. , Everton? We know, BR knows, he knows even the Sevies know KT, if he leaves, will be to a major club.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 16:57:15
Really hope this isn’t true. Scotsman has it in print 😩.

5.) 03 Jul 2018 17:15:29
Tabloids talk some bull, not concerned about interest from Everton at all! Not saying KT definitely won't go this transfer window but unless another CL team bids for him, he'll still be playing in the hoops next season! Cracking player worth every penny of his 30mil valuation, considering his outstanding form, age and lengthy contract, he's on route to be another Celtic legend!

6.) 03 Jul 2018 17:20:31
Don't think he'd be playing right now if this were true.

7.) 03 Jul 2018 17:59:41
Lol looked at the Record Podcast! What a bunch of nothing. No story.

8.) 03 Jul 2018 22:14:44
In the unlikely event he goes, they'd better be spending at the very least, half the cash on a couple of decent signings. One a left back obviously.

9.) 04 Jul 2018 10:16:04
He needs to shoot it down. It’s going on too long. I have no problem believing Lawell would sell his granny, but KT leaving o can’t see. He needs to make a statement. If it’s nonsense meant to unsettle us it has to be put to bed.

{Ed007's Note - There's nothing to shoot down, why should KT comment on idle speculation and made up stories?}

10.) 04 Jul 2018 10:31:27
He is at the front of the new picture advertising the new away too. That in itself doesn't meaning anything however wouldn't imagine Celtic would use KT if he was going a week later. He also started today's friendly which I would highly doubt would have happened if a deal was in place, from both the players and Everton's view point. Just the daily rag trying to stir up crap again. In my opinion however I would agree with comments before that it would be much better if the player or club just came out and set the record straight.

11.) 04 Jul 2018 10:32:50
Have you not got to agree a fee with the club first BEFORE uyou talk contracts with players? 😂



12.) 04 Jul 2018 10:35:43
Ban them.

13.) 04 Jul 2018 10:38:08
Look at the number of posts in here and other sites. The fans are getting anxious. I absolutely don’t think he will go. It’s rubbish stirring but I do think they should nail it dead.

14.) 04 Jul 2018 12:44:53

07 Apr 2019 20:31:51
Does anyone know if there’s been any more news regarding lee congerton leaving. It’s seems to have gone very quiet, there was talk of park coming back ( does that depend on Lennie getting the gig )
Has congerton actually handed his notice in? This is a big close season for us with all the players out of contract, loans going back, and early qualifying for the champions league. Throw into this, possibly a new manager and surely the club are looking at all this . If we aren’t proactive, we could put ourselves under pressure next season.


1.) 08 Apr 2019 10:49:53
What? Celtic making a mess of things in the recruitment market?

2.) 08 Apr 2019 17:15:24
Really we have to have all the "I" dotted and "t" crossed by the 7th of April or we will be too late again.



22 Feb 2019 15:02:32
With Brendan working on improving Burke ( possibly for him to go back to wba a better player) , where does this leave eduarde . For us to sign someone for 9 million he really needs to be starting every game when he’s fit, I appreciate he’s had injuries this season but he needs to cement his place in the team and start proving his worth to us. If I was in his shoes I’d be pretty peed off if a 6 month loan was starting ahead of me . Also because of the outlay it needs to work for the manager as the club would be very uncomfortable agreeing to another signing like that, if they can’t see a profit in it further down the line.


1.) 22 Feb 2019 15:12:16
He has only himself to blame. Accept he has had injuries but his form is patchy at best and he needs to show a bit more drive and effort. And don't believe for 1 minute we paid 9 mil. Not a chance.

{Ed007's Note - I'll say it again for the hard of thinking - The Edoaurd fee was registered with FIFA/TMS as 10.3 million Euros.
The full contracted costs and all parties involved in any and all transfers are required to be reported by clubs to FIFA who maintain the Transfer Matching System (International and Domestic) to record all details and costs for all transfers of professional players in all FIFA member states. Clubs are required to submit this data and there are sanctions imposed if they don't - ranging from warnings, through fines, competition bans and even relegation.}

2.) 22 Feb 2019 15:38:54
People keep using Edouards fee against him but before us he had only had half a season out on loan professionally.

If we are accepting being a project driven club then these are the sort of results u need to get used to.

Purple patches followed by dry spells.

It's hard for young guys experiencing injuries and falling down the pecking order.

Part of learning curve. Different from the days of having international level players who have been in European finals etc.

3.) 22 Feb 2019 16:31:24
Eddy needs to show more when he is fit he's not consistent enough and at times he looks a bit fragile.

4.) 22 Feb 2019 16:40:00
He is also 20 years old. Mikel Johnston is a year younger and you don’t see everyone expecting the same out of him. Give the boy time. He will come good.

5.) 22 Feb 2019 16:43:11
Edouard is a top class player and I have no doubt he will go on to have a great career.

When he is on form he is unplayable.

6.) 22 Feb 2019 17:21:07
Isn't it strange ed when you have explained in detail the facts regarding the fee paid for edouard several times, those who doubt it never come back and say thanks we were wrong. oldkilly.

{Ed007's Note - I remember someone asking me where this info was - www.fifatms.com - and he came back saying it's not real because the website isn't fancy enough - even though it's an official FIFA website 😂😂😂
The users of the TMS data base are the clubs and the associations (e.g. The SFA). There are certain others that have full access to the data but no ability to change it - this is to ensure transparency and includes one News Agency, but it is not public data.}

7.) 22 Feb 2019 17:30:34
He played 16 first team games before joining us . he came I believe as the club expected dembele to stay for another season? thus giving us time to develop him . he is a boy with limited experience of first team football and still learning his trade but has potential to become a real good player.

8.) 22 Feb 2019 17:32:07
Ed i think that's the 2 or 3rd time chinks came out with that nonsense. No point repeating yourself over and over.

{Ed007's Note - Oh right, I didn't notice that.}

9.) 22 Feb 2019 19:52:25
Ed, when a fee is announced as undisclosed in the media, does that website have the exact fee?

{Ed007's Note - Yes mate the undisclosed part only means it's not being made public.}

10.) 22 Feb 2019 22:12:14
Just got to be patient with Edouard. The fee is is a magnifying glass for us, but isn't much in the scheme of things. To have Moussa spirited away when he was French Ed was always going to play off him has also made it hard. He's working hard, he's still growing, its an uncompromising role he's being asked to play and I'm glad he's sticking around.

11.) 23 Feb 2019 19:56:59
Someone is trying to make trouble Edouard is an exciting young 20 year old player . Who has suffered from a series of injuries, like many youngsters . In all probability he will become a brilliant player . Surely no sensible Celtic supporter would think that in a game like last Thursday's B R should ignore fit options available, who he expected to do a good job and instead pick an unfit player trying to work his way back to fitness .
I don't think B R is that big an idiot that in an important game he wouldn't play the best team available.



21 Feb 2019 20:13:29
Oh well, one of the main things this team needs to learn is we need consistency when it comes to Europe, we can’t afford one bad leg or these teams punish us. We played well tonight, move on Bhoys we have another 🏆🏆🏆 to win. ☘️.




10 Feb 2019 16:04:05
I know it’s early days but since the transfer window we have really pushed on.
Does anyone think this is the makings of Rodgers best team since he’s came in, pace all through the team which is what you need in today’s game.
I appreciate the invincible season, and Dembele when he was tearing it up but now we seem to have so much movement all the way through the team . I suppose thursdays game will be a litmus test for them.


1.) 10 Feb 2019 16:39:49
I think Europe will always be the better gauge as to where we really are but you are spot on with your assessment and we're looking a lot more like what one would hope to be. Coincidently Sinclair is firing again. This side should be chomping at the bit for thursday. Great performance today.

2.) 10 Feb 2019 16:45:27
Since Bain has came in we look stronger defensively, the back four looks comfortable in possession and confident playing out from the back. Haven't conceded a goal in 2019 and no defensive heart in the mouth moments either. Weah and Burke have added a freshness to the team. Have to say I thought Burke looked every bit a £15m player today. Love to see Sinclair ram people's comments down their throats. Hayes deserves a mention as does Calmac👍.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 17:28:04
Just imagine if we held onto Dembele for another season.

4.) 10 Feb 2019 21:05:38
If we had we probably wouldn't have went for burke.

5.) 10 Feb 2019 22:37:36
Dembelle is a £20m history lesson. Don’t fall over what is behind you. We move on.

6.) 11 Feb 2019 01:23:55
Or weah. in my opinion prefare the squad now than what it was when dembele was here, a lot more players are getting involved in build ups and goals. Last 2 seasons the team was built around dembele, so it seems theirs a lot more freedom in our team especially since January when we brought in the players we have. Hopefully we can tie these loans down for another season. Although I would like to see Ntcham get a we run out in midfield lol but with cal brown and Christie on this form he’s going to have to wait his turn and prove something.

7.) 11 Feb 2019 19:17:21
Sinclair has rammed in goals as well as the ill informed doom and gloom merchants on this site. He has been a proper professional and total team player for our Club since he was signed.

8.) 11 Feb 2019 22:16:30
I like to see us doing well in Europe, if we don't, I won't lose any sleep .
Domestic success is a must, to me we have to win treble treble . Now that would be something to sing about and remember to our graves .
I feel treble treble is a more realistic target for us than winning UEFA Cup, Qualifying for last 16 or last 8 won't be remembered for ever and ever and I would be surprised if we could better that.

You have done it again Kev, where did I say about him being experienced? I said I couldn’t see us paying that for someone that has scored two goals, we paid 9 for eddy after having him on loan / trial for a season to make sure we knew what we were getting .

What’s people’s thoughts on lennie being spotted at West Brom with garry Parker last night? Looking at a player for us or being linked with them?
I don’t personally want Lennie to get the job, but West Brom would be a good move for him, out from under the microscope of Scottish football. Plus they are a big club, although I watched them last night and they play dire football.

What’s the point of having a defensive team in the Scottish premier, we are always on the attack against most teams ( although not at Ibrox anymore apparently🤢) . Defensively astute when we take part in Europe but def more offensive for the league.

Kev it’s not easy for Burke because he is woeful. Even when he first came and he got a couple of goals he never looked comfortable . When he gets through one on one he always looks for a pass as he doesn’t seem confident . His touch, movement and timing for a header are terrible for a pro. There’s a reason why he wasn’t getting a game for all his previous teams.

The players don’t seem to be playing for Lennon really, but they also need to take a look at themselves. This is a really strange season where we will probably end up with a treble treble but I can’t really think of a time when we put a run together where we played good football consistently . Coming off what could be a record breaking season we are in my opinion under pressure for the end of season where we need to make important decisions regarding the management and players in and out. The nine in a row depends highly on getting these decisions done swiftly and correctly. Peter Lawwell you are now under the spotlight.
