Media in London saying Tierney wants move apparently.


1.) 23 Jun 2019 07:57:54
Huw would they know if he goes it should be for top dollar.

2.) 23 Jun 2019 10:15:35
I was in London last night guys and was speaking with an Arsenal board member. Didn’t give me any details at all but just said that if Tierney wasn’t an Arsenal player by the end of this week he would be very surprised. Only passing on what he said.

3.) 23 Jun 2019 10:18:55
If it’s true we should hold out for at least 25-30 million. when you got defenders like walker and stones going for 45 plus.

4.) 23 Jun 2019 11:35:19
30m, a sell on % and a couple of their young players as a sweetener. Bielik, Reiss Nelson, Smith Rowe and Saka look like very good young players. No way should we be looking for any less than this with the money being quoted in the EPl.

5.) 23 Jun 2019 12:13:54
He will be away for £20m plus sell on clause be end of week.

6.) 23 Jun 2019 13:32:43
20 million my arse. If the club sell him for that someone should get the door for it. McKenna is quoted at 10 million for God sake and Maguire 70 million! At least 25 to 30 min in the current market and add ons on top.



14 Jun 2019 23:05:24
Celtic have been known for as long as I can remember as having a strict policy of doing business behind closed doors.

Clubs negotiating with us will be well aware of that, so why did Motherwell go public?

I think Turnbull agents (same ones Stuart Armstrong has and look what happened there) have advised Motherwell to go public to induce an English team to come in with a higher bid and bigger salary for Turnbull which leads to bigger commission for Agents.

As much as I think Turnbull is a good player, I would rather see club pull the plug and not deal with these Agents again no matter who player is.


1.) 15 Jun 2019 08:21:31
To be fair agents have to do what's right for their players, however I would honestly prefer the club move on and cut ties with the deal. If the player was demanding more game time or if it was money, I couldn’t care less. As far as I’m concerned the player has earned his move, he was offered a substantial wage rise, now if he wants more game time and more money, he has to earn that, once he's in the door. If not, he's not the kind of player I want to be at Celtic park. To be honest I liked Armstrong on the pitch but all the carry on with his contract meant he was purely at our club for the money, there was a coldness there, not criticising him, just stating how I felt. I want players who are here for the honour of playing for such a prestigious club and to be part of the family. Each to their own and good luck to the boy, just not for us.

2.) 15 Jun 2019 08:20:11
I don't remember anything untoward happening with Armstrong.

3.) 15 Jun 2019 09:25:51
Am with u on that one phil.

4.) 15 Jun 2019 11:34:36
Kevbhoy his agent messed about hawking him all over England. When they couldn't find a club he'd only extend his contract for a season.

5.) 15 Jun 2019 12:43:56
That's right enough Kev. I forgot about that.

6.) 15 Jun 2019 21:28:29
Whilst I said agents have to do what's right for their clients, I don’t believe Mr Gillis is, I think he’s enjoying the heights of the job, acting like Billy big baws, something he couldn’t achieve as a player. He done better than me as a player right enough, but I’m still grounded and am proud to earned everything I have. Something that appears to be lost here! Seen a pic of Ross McCormack sleeping off a hangover the other day, maybe young Turnbell fancies that sort of career, chasing the £’s rather than the medals. As I said earlier, move on, I don’t want to see loads of youngersters getting his name on their new strips, if that’s the way he is. Would certainly avoid Prolegal in the future!

Anyone else heard mourinho?


1.) 26 Feb 2019 15:57:47
What a turn around that would be 😂.

2.) 26 Feb 2019 15:59:12
Id take him.

3.) 26 Feb 2019 16:05:45
Bring the king home 🍀.

4.) 26 Feb 2019 16:19:48
More chance of Solskjaer if he doesn't get the Man U job at the end of the season?

5.) 26 Feb 2019 22:29:56
Not Mouruniho for me horrible watching his teams how they set up and play. Marco Rose would be amazing imo.

6.) 26 Feb 2019 23:04:58
Murinho after the UEFA cup final vs Porto? We wouldn't have been happy with that appointment at his prime.

Clarke has earned a crack at it the hard way.
Rafa is the European expert and available and why not?
Lennon will endear himself with us all within 6 weeks.
What about Ranieri? I think that's who I'd like most. Sort of in the Tommy Burns mode.

7.) 27 Feb 2019 07:18:50
Ranieri! Yes! Dilly ding dilly dong!

8.) 28 Feb 2019 11:33:27
Larsson Hartson Sutton oh and Kennedy lol dream team for ten in a row.



05 Jan 2019 20:39:53
There has been too many incidents over past few years involving Beaton. He is incompetent and a cheat. There is no way even an amature league referee would think even 1 of the incidents in question was legit.

Hearing rumours he used to have a season ticket at Castle grey skull. Hopefully he gets his wings clipped for game and sent down a few leagues.


1.) 06 Jan 2019 12:18:40
Royjac the board post our finances at AGMs etc. Go read it for yourself. £45mil.

Also people saying rangers signings won't win them the league

Or AEK we should have had enough to beat them.

Why are rangers the benchmark? They are terrible. We have no choice but to aim higher now.

Higher than the likes or rangers and AEK. This whole happy to scrape by is exactly the problem.

About time we tried to match our potential as a club.

Apparently Lennon is raging with the tea lady about performance today. She asked him if he wanted a ginger nut with his tea and it ruined his tactics for today.


1.) 17 Aug 2019 19:42:14
Can the tea lady play at left back.

2.) 17 Aug 2019 20:52:48
Only way Sinclair is getting a game if she’s injured.



14 Aug 2019 20:36:19
All these valiant posts defending Lennon are unbelievable. He is out his depth and has to go now. Still got time to make this right with a suitable manager appointed.

Should never have got the job in first place.


1.) 14 Aug 2019 21:18:41
not unbelievable mate were just getting behind him instead of putting pressure on him from his own that he does not need.

2.) 14 Aug 2019 23:24:30
Hey Philtim if we sack Lennon who do we sign as our new manager?

3.) 15 Aug 2019 10:00:24
Will you still be shouting get behind him if he costs us the league I wonder?

Party there were loads of good managers avalible in the summer.

Asking who we get is such a daft question imo. Are we to keep a poor manager just because it's easier than finding a new One?



06 Jul 2019 15:42:44
Is it just me or does anyone think the mole could of been Scott Allan?


1.) 06 Jul 2019 17:03:21
I have never thought it was a player and still don't.

2.) 06 Jul 2019 17:41:57
It’s not Celtic have asked 3 employees to resign rather than be sacked. All 3 complied. Guilty as sin. Selling stories to the record.

3.) 06 Jul 2019 18:19:29
Same Kev.



27 Jun 2019 23:25:16
Im really confident about next few seasons regarding players we are in for. It's good we are in for quality unlike our Glasgow neighbours.


1.) 28 Jun 2019 05:37:34
Phill adzactly you should see the pelters my currunt bun friends are thinking there giving me the turnbull deals off again use still not signed anyone that’s another won in for THE rangers the worrying is for them how much have they actually spent? Quality cost muney ok sometimes u get the deal of a life time but most of the time it doesn’t work out then wee go and spend there whole transfer budget and more on a centre half lol let’s blow this tripe out the water this year coybig🍀.



23 Jun 2019 02:32:19
If Tierney goes then good luck to him. Has a bright future ahead, he should aim higher than Arsenal though. Club should set an example and hold out for a lot more than £25m. Too many clubs picking star players up on cheap.


1.) 23 Jun 2019 07:04:11
Behave mate eh?

25million isn't cheap for a Celtic player. Christ almighty.

2.) 23 Jun 2019 07:21:43
Given van Dijk and Wanyama had to go to Southampton before moving on to a bigger club, I’d say its pretty impressive if KT goes straight to Arsenal from us. I’m not sure he could get any better than that. They are a huge club.

3.) 23 Jun 2019 07:44:57
Spurs or Chelsea better options in London, but he could play for any big team.
These teams can pay mega bucks so we should not take any less than £30m.
He'll be worth double that in two years.

4.) 23 Jun 2019 09:31:46
The media are pushing for the move, saying KT wants to go. I would be surprised if KT would even consider leaving before 10 in a row because he would be still only about 23 and will have plenty of opportunities in the future, if that's the road he eventually want to go down.
I never bought into Brendan was a die hard Celtic fan because his first team was Sheff Wed but we all know for 100 percent that KT is one of our own and we need guys like him for these next couple of seasons.
Celtic should come out and say he is not for sale at any price, the same as they have done with Calmac and I hope KT comes out and tells his own people that he is going nowhere until he brings home 10 in a row. HH.

5.) 23 Jun 2019 09:49:43
Half the problem with these situations are the hun-media are desperate for us to sell our best players and deplete our team, so they go full-pelt with the speculation, false quotes and fake news.
Of course there is also a Celtic Board that are in the habit of at least one big sale every summer, but I would like to hear directly from the player - who's Celtic-daft - on how he honestly feels?
A statement of intent to stay, would be better than a huge new signing and possibly have a knock-on effect with Cal-Mac and JF etc.
If he does leave? If you thought the Dembele transfer affected a player or two - then watch the reaction of other heads turning.

6.) 23 Jun 2019 09:45:19
Leon I 100% agree with you . The thing that worries me is I why the club put out a not for sale sign on Calmac and not on Tierney . I hate to say it but I get the feeling his head has been turned and wants to leave . I’m gutted by this as wanted him to be here for ten, and we all know the money won’t be reinvested . Be lucky if we are given 10 out of the 25.

Is it just me or are Arsenal starting to be a pain in the farce? They are acting the goat. 25m means 25m.

Yeah your right Tony!

Get behind a manager who got us put out of CL because of his tactics and could of caused an even bigger embarressment getting knocked out cup at first hurdle by a mediocre championship team! Great shout!

He is out his depth and the rot has got to stop now.

@United Ireland it's funny how you preach about justified barrage Lennon has received and your perception that it is out of order, yet not one mention of his conduct towards Hibs players. You are of the opinion Lennon can barrage players yet fans are not allowed to say anything about him?

@Jim1972 Fans don't need to support a manager they have no faith in! That's main reason complacency sets in, fans like yourself turning a blind eye to reality because of their affection for Lennon!

Fact of the matter is he had a good enough squad to sail past cluj and finish off Dunfermline in 90min. That never happened due to Lennons tactics and team selection. No excuses.

You blame everyone apart from Lennon for his mistakes and I'm sure you done the same last time he was at helm.

Regardless if signings are Lennons or not, any manager with a brain should play the best team he has from squad. Lennon has failed to do so.

No it's not over the top. He is well and truly out his depth and things will get worse before better.
