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.

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.

Is it not a bit ironic how start of the season that mob were slagging Julien off and he gets us the win against them? Lol.


{Ed007's Note - It's funnier or ironicer(???) that we've been slagging off & laughing at El Duffalo for years and once again he done hee haw and was lucky to stay on the park.}

1.) 08 Dec 2019 20:24:54
Julien has been a rock. Yes we rode our luck today but football is about winning. We have our chance on the 29th to put in a better performance and put a nail into there so called title challenge.

2.) 08 Dec 2019 21:39:09
Julien might have been a rock but in that first half they were getting their heads to too many crosses coming into the Celtic box, I thought it was a great result but a shocking, shocking performance, I know Brown is an inspirational figure but what does he bring to the midfield in a footballing sense, I would rest him and stick Ntcham in his place.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 21:44:37
Be must had about 10 fouls and countless dives. No bottle V The Champions.



06 Oct 2019 13:50:37
It's a bad day going into a game against an inferior team whilst we are on form, knowing we are going to get beat due to a plastic pitch.

If Livingston had a regular pitch they would not be in SPFL this season it's anti football.

If we had to lose at least it's at this stage of season and not further down.


1.) 06 Oct 2019 14:00:41
Pitch had a huge part to play, and that is not an excuse. Christie lost us the game, plain and simple. The surface is only fit for a long ball battle and you need 11 men for that. It’s the ultimate leveller as it killed Celtic’s ball players, especially when down to 10. Must do better.



01 Sep 2019 15:25:27
@ed007 apologies for post the other night........................


{Ed007's Note - Forget about it buddy, it's water under the bridge. Hopefully everything's back on track 👍 take care 🙏

1.) 01 Sep 2019 16:48:57
ED any wee snip bits for us for the transfer window closing any wee late surprised do we think?



17 Aug 2019 19:15:24
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?

Ed007 Do you think Edouard will definitely leave this summer or do you think we will get another season out of him?


{Ed007's Note - It's too early to say but there will be bids to test Celtic's and Edouard's resolve.}

Just seen something online that Lennon said he wasn't in squad cause Edouard wasn't starting and on the bench.

We could of won 5-0, had 99% possession all game, not commit a single foul and that mob would still try taint result.

El Bill really struggles against any decent defence.

That mob know how good a player Edouard is and when they realised he wasn't playing and we had recognised striker starting, they knew if they had any chance of winning they would have to throw everything they had at us while Edouard was not on pitch. It's amazing how game turned after he came on.

For all these chances they had apart from Ryan Jack shot, I think I can only think of 2 chances Morelos had that were any threat. He does not know what to do in front of goal under pressure. Is it just me or does anything else think Morelos can't use his left foot?
