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
Armstrong modelled the new home top.



30 Jun 2018 13:38:28
Ed, have you heard of any interest in Pato, with a couple of tweets hinting from him. Could possibly be interested in coming back to Europe, I think Brendan was interested in him while at Liverpool . Could be a Lubo type we all love to see and possibly a replacement for paddy ( skill wise ) . He would definitely get fans excited.


{Ed007's Note - Isn't he going to Panathinaikos?}



20 Jun 2018 19:13:22
From what I have seen of Schar whilst at Basel and more so through the Swiss side he definitely looks like a player that would improve us. With the rumours of us being after him it makes me wonder why we never done the deal before the World Cup. I seem to remember we were linked a month or so ago, but surely if he has a decent tournament we will find ourselves outbid financially with wages to a mid range prem
team especially for the relatively low buying price.


1.) 20 Jun 2018 19:55:19
We know by now how Celtic do there business. If you heard it as a rumour, and its not happened a day or so later then it is and will remain a rumour. PL and BR keep their cards close to their chest. We won't find out thru rumours. although its fun to speculate.

2.) 20 Jun 2018 20:01:44
The rumours first came from those bogus websites. It's been a quiet week so the s*n decided to regurgitate it, and the rest of the rags have followed suit. Every single article refers to 'reports'. Unfortunately this one looks like column filler.

3.) 20 Jun 2018 20:25:54
Shame as he looked decent.

4.) 20 Jun 2018 21:53:28
I wouldn't disagree to be fair.

5.) 20 Jun 2018 22:02:33
He's a good player Quinn. And at the 'reported' 3.5m, would be a good signing. Anything that originates from those certain few sites though tends to be BS.

6.) 20 Jun 2018 23:02:03
Don’t really see us signing him, he was good against Brazil, so that ends our chances.

7.) 21 Jun 2018 08:39:40
@Quinn1888 - If there actually is an interest I very much doubt it's Celtic's fault the deal hasn't been sorted and much more likely that the player would want to use the WC to put himself in the shop window and assess his options afterwards.

8.) 21 Jun 2018 09:48:36
Has anyone noticed since commons left there has been no mole in cp. Is that a coincidence. Your guess is as good as mine.

9.) 21 Jun 2018 11:01:12
Guessing is not a science. I’m guessing.

10.) 21 Jun 2018 12:31:45
Lawwell will wait to the last possible minute to sign the cheapest possible players.

11.) 21 Jun 2018 13:55:23
Like he done with edouard jb67?

12.) 21 Jun 2018 19:45:11
And Sinky and Ntcham. Some folks always negative.

13.) 21 Jun 2018 23:06:29
Why do some posters continue to make fools of themselves, I hate to read a poster who continues to post nonsense about Peter Lawwell. Maybe Mr Lawwell did something nasty on Jamesbhoy67 in the past.

14.) 23 Jun 2018 11:50:21
It was already agreed to sign him last season before the 17th of june, keep up kev.

15.) 23 Jun 2018 11:47:00
No one is being negative shug, they are just stating facts about how lawwell goes about his penny pinching prudent business plan each year, he waits to see if we qualify for the champions league before going about most of his business.

16.) 23 Jun 2018 11:48:16
Oh, how the tide has turned. Not so long ago PL was going to be hung, drawn and quartered by most on here. Guy has been superb for Celtic.

17.) 23 Jun 2018 11:49:30
lawwell does the same thing every year, he waits on champions league qualification before he does most of his business.



28 Aug 2017 11:06:10
Ed, I read this morning something about us and skertl getting linked. Have you heard anything on this? Not loads of pace but decent experience and no nonsense defender? He's a safer bet than boyata I think .


{Ed007's Note - I know that some places were linking us with him along with Man City ( I know but remember they're after Jonny Evans), Newcastle and Swansea earlier this summer but if he was leaving Fenerbahce I think it would have happened by now.
Skrtel's only been in Turkey a year but he was being linked with a move away because Fenerbahce breached FFP Regs last year and it was thought he would need to be sold but with only days to go it doesn't look like that's true though that's not to say a move won't materialise.}

1.) 28 Aug 2017 12:59:22
If it were to happen ed, what's your opinion? An improvement?

{Ed007's Note - Definitely.}

2.) 28 Aug 2017 13:03:03
Afternoon ED I've been sleeping the day due to being night shift last night just wondering where we are at with PR one report says he's in or will be here for medical with Loan deal pending other report say possible permanent deal looming have I heard anything? Plus CH Rodgers knows too coming in possible can you shed in sense to these reports cheers.

{Ed007's Note - I'd love it to be a permanent deal for Roberts but unless the player himself has made a major u-turn it's going to be a loan. All the talk about why you'd need a medical for a loan is just nonsense, every signing goes through a medical even youngsters.
I've not heard anything on the CB situation but it seems to be Skrtel people are talking about.}

3.) 28 Aug 2017 13:46:25
I don't really rate him as a CB thought he was a bit suspect at time but who am I BR knows best seen someone talking about a striker too any news on that front ED?

{Ed007's Note - Maybe Odsonne Edouard.......

4.) 28 Aug 2017 13:55:05
Who's that ED? Sorry.

{Ed007's Note - He's a 19-year old striker from PSG who spent last season on loan at Toulouse. Read up on him - the GB could have a field day with their banners lol}

5.) 28 Aug 2017 14:09:16
Cheers ED I will could possible the trip to France from BR maybe he was trying to do some shopping?

{Ed007's Note - Maybe.}

6.) 28 Aug 2017 14:12:08
I've heard of this kid, think he can play out on the right wing aswell a decent prospect and with PSG signing Neymar and supposedly agreeing a loan deal for Mbappe, it could open the door for him to leave.

7.) 28 Aug 2017 14:24:24
Is there any substance to the psg lad ed or just an opinion from yourself . I think skertel and jozo would be a good tough tackling pairing together . Kenny Miller wouldn't know which way to turn 😂.

{Ed007's Note - It was a name that was mentioned to me in a conversation I had this morning and he certainly ticks all the boxes as a 'project' for Rodgers.}

8.) 28 Aug 2017 16:02:47
Please not Skrtel - he's an appalling footballer and I use the term lightly because he's really nothing more than a thug.

9.) 28 Aug 2017 16:55:37
Heard that if PSG don't bring in £150 million in transfer fees before end of window they will be in breach of ffp rules so they may be looking to offload a few fringe players.

10.) 28 Aug 2017 18:29:44
Are we talking that useless bombs are who used to play for Liverpool, Skirtle?

He would be our Senderos.

I don't believe in God, but I'm asking him to take a day aff from helping actors win oscars, nicely, to make this bull.

I actually hate the way he plays fitba.

And Skurtles a nightmare too.

11.) 28 Aug 2017 18:30:45
Not cheap enough for us. Unless they gave hundreds of players. Won't affect us.

20 Aug 2018 22:20:25
Well lads, 10 days to go in what as we all know has been a shocking window so far. Very little rumours emerging at the minute, I’m personally worried that we won’t be signing anyone of substance . Maybe a loan, the way it looks at the minute is we will be going into the sevco game with the same centre backs as unless we sign someone like Bruma I doubt Brendan would blood them straight in . As we all know we can’t keep a clean sheet, which will probably mean we need to score at least two against the people . Please Celtic, lift our spirits and give us two decent signings to close of the window to freshen us up 🙏.


1.) 21 Aug 2018 00:17:53
If your fear is Rangers2012, then I worry for you. A collection of 11 or twelve new first team players at any club never augers well when they come up any sort of decent team . Add in a man managing a club for the first time, surely to God we will beat that lot . With Ager and Jozo and Hendry our choices for 2 centre back positions I would worry more against other mid table SPL teams.

2.) 21 Aug 2018 06:14:01
As much as I hate to say it Chris, I think the challenge from sevco is a real one this year. And recently we look like a side that is not confident for whatever reason and we would be naive to write them off. Gerrard has them much stronger defensively this year so I can see them being a lot more consistent in picking up points, where as last season we dropped quite a few needless points. In saying that I still believe we are the better team but my point is a couple of good signings could lift the whole club.

3.) 21 Aug 2018 08:36:43
We can't go into any season thinking it's going to be easy. It's that mindset at Board level that has seen us stall rather than strengthen. I hope every player we have has the attitude that they need to go onto that park and give it their all to get a result, no matter who the opposition is. Peformances against Hearts, Partick etc etc simply not good enough so i hope to god our players don't think it's going to be easy.

4.) 21 Aug 2018 08:50:44
Old Man Chris i think we have all done there is no threat from Sevco to death. It is quite obvious to all that they are a threat. They remain unbeaten in 10 games which breeds confidence. We really lack confidence right now. We have better players but they have the momentum right now. There is not a lot between us as we stand here today, but we need to freshen it up, everyone of us knows that. Its going to be close on 2nd September, its not going to be a 5-0 Celtic win.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 10:06:26
Sorry but I disagree. At one stage last season Pedro had the persons playing so well they were cheering in the dressing room after drawing us in the cup and we all know how that panned out. Yes they are playing ok but we are so far better and when faced with that particular challenge we shall rise and once again show Glasgow is green and white. It can't come soon enough for me. HH 3 to go till 10 in a row.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 10:15:50
Everyone says we are “so far ahead” and “we won’t be caught”. Look at the real picture here and tell me why we won’t be caught? No new players, the strongest position we’ve ever been in as a club. No “real quality” that is always being quoted being added. Slowly declining as we have shown. Everyone can say “there’s 2 weeks left in the window, there’s 10 days left in the window” etc. So what, at the end of it we brought in French Eddy, a Dundee keeper and an injured Scott McKenna whose not good enough when fit. Where the heck is our money, we all pay thousands of pounds a year following celtic and we can’t even give the fans some players to shout about or even improve the squad. Pathetic.

7.) 21 Aug 2018 10:44:51
Potentially an injured Scott McKenna*.

8.) 21 Aug 2018 16:51:25
I really hopeim wrong but i don't think wel even signanyone, and im so sick of the dissapointment yr after yr, itsthe same, we went for this one or thst one but wejust couldn't get the deal over the line? Every season is the same. Il be praying 🙏 over the next ten days for some good news, but we've been here before and I'm not at all confident we'll get anyone of note. Hail hail.

9.) 21 Aug 2018 18:23:22
I never thought normal sensible Celtic fans could post such nonsense .
Rangers2012 have compiled another new team from a crowd of nobodies . They play the most basic style of defensive football of the 1970's .
It is impossible to judge their centre defenders for example because when an opposing team puts the ball into their area there are at least 5 defensive minded players there to hoof the ball up the park . No matter how small a club they play the wee club with the weaker team play all the football.



19 Aug 2018 14:30:31
Where has the rumours of Bruma appeared from, seems decent if true?


1.) 19 Aug 2018 14:48:00
Just Twitter I think mate.

Certainly a better pedigree than we’re often linked with but probably nonsense.

2.) 19 Aug 2018 15:15:02
It’s from a twat called Agent Kevin, an alleged Celtic fan and is supposed to be made up. If it is he needs to get a grip of himself. Bad enough sevconians taking the piss.

3.) 19 Aug 2018 16:10:18
Shame, he looks like what we need, a bit of a monster at the back. Any rumours to who Rogers is down to Man City to see/ talk to?

4.) 19 Aug 2018 18:17:11
Agent Kevin didn’t start this one, he just jumped on the bandwagon. Appatently it originated on KDS this morning. It’ll be constant like this every day until the window shuts.



19 Aug 2018 12:35:53
Anyone take Mulumbu on a free to come in as back up for browny / Ntcham . Looked decent last season for Kilmarnock, without a club at the minute as well. Or if we are really pushing the boat out, Yaya Toure . Surely if we gave him 30 grand a week it’s better than not playing . He could coast it up here at centre back and prob at centre mid if needed.


1.) 19 Aug 2018 13:27:11
Mulunbu, yes. Wonder why no club?

2.) 19 Aug 2018 13:57:41
Neither - Marchisio maybe.

3.) 19 Aug 2018 14:57:45
Marchisio would still demand a big wage.

4.) 20 Aug 2018 00:40:16
Why has nobody signed up Mulumbu? He bossed Brown and Ntcham at Rugby Park last season. Would definitely take him. I am not a fan of John Terry but would take him in a heart beat if the option is there. Decent defender, scores goals, loads of experience.



18 Aug 2018 11:43:11
With the last two results, this is a brave team selection from Brendan . No second chance in cup games and everyone will be looking at us waiting for us to slip up again. c'mon celts, get back on form . Win today then settle down and push on to get ready to put the people back in their box.




15 Aug 2018 12:01:15
Why is he we constantly hear that we spend every penny we make on the team, yet we have money in the bank that isn’t touched . It would be nice if Lawwell came out and at least explained why we aren’t making signings. If we are not careful the fractures in the relationship between board and manager could be harder to repair.


1.) 15 Aug 2018 12:24:33
Are you saying we should spend till we don't have any money in the bank?

2.) 15 Aug 2018 12:38:41
That's not what we hear at all Quinn. We're told that all money brought in is invested back into the "club" through one way or another. This includes upgrades like The Celtic Way as well as transfers etc.

3.) 15 Aug 2018 12:42:14
Players wages gone up with new contracts. We also need to get rid of the dead wood who take big wages too. I would rather the books were balanced.

4.) 15 Aug 2018 12:51:36
The money in the bank gets taxed Kev so it is best to spend every dime.

5.) 15 Aug 2018 13:30:48
It always seems that the board refuse to get players in until our European fates decided. It was always going to be harder qualifying this year with the extra round and better quality we could draw yet we go in even weaker than last season. Can't see many being signed now it'll be a few loans in to compensate for the loss of the CL bounty.

6.) 15 Aug 2018 15:32:32
My mistake kevbhoy, they do say that. My argument would be then that surely team funds come before anything else . I said last week in a post that we could be using our new 2million pounds lighting system for Livingston or Kilmarnock if we aren’t careful. In my opinion I go to watch Celtic, the team play, not a light show or a new hotel, even Celtic way. What’s people’s opnions here, would they prefer a better team or better experience? I know what I’d prefer.

No way green b, u r completely wrong. Andy Halliday would walk into our team, prob take the captaincy of broony as well, he’d probably start picking the team as well . Well seeing as we are talking bollox here we may as well add to it.

Is it not Jeffrey Bruma the centre back?

11 Aug 2018 23:59:02
Sell him ASAP for 10 million if we get it. He’s had a good 6 months but before that he was a bomb scare every time he was on the pitch. You would think he owes the club, manager after they stuck by him as for two seasons before he’s hardly pulled up trees. Plus you can’t have players moping around causing trouble . Sell him and move on.

No Kev our scouting wasn’t poor when we found the players you mentioned, my point would be is that they couldn’t come up with a new alternative or was the board going for the cheap option? Not every deal is going to work out either Kev so while I agree with you on the players mentioned there is also failures . Again my question would be is it the board going the cheaper route?

The trouble is now unfortunately with no champions league these type of teams look a lot more favourable than ours . Be gutted if a bid is accepted as 8 in a row seems more important now than cash in the bank for one of our main players. If he goes in and says he wants the move where does that leave us. Hopefully stay together, sign a couple of players to improve us and win the league again because the way things have been going for us lately we are giving our challengers some impetus for the season.
I understand we do our business quietly but the fans could definitely do with a lift, as Porto have bid for Ntcham we aren’t even bidding for a player as yet. It’s rare that a bid is made, agreed, everyone happy all at once . There’s generally a bit of tooing and throwing but we are completely silent.

Anyone know how much the two centre backs were for aek as they looked a massive improvement on what we have . Defenders who love a tackle and header . ?

Kev83, what is your honest opinion regarding the club at the minute as you always shoot down peoples opinions regarding spending and improving . Not being argumentative but are you happy with how we are at the minute, if not what would you like to see change? If you aren’t happy how much do you think the club should back Rogers, if at all . ?
Just wondering.
