Any news on O'Reilly interest? I love him but I'd probably cash in - he's a wonderful player but I don't think we should be knocking back 40/ 50m for him. Take it and then reinvest - buy a world class goalkeeper and a new cm to replace him and have money left over. We have a team good enough to get to the latter stages of the CL if we invest properly and O'Reilly sale can fund that!

Would rather keep him but we rarely stand in the players way. on this occasion we literally can name our price as we are cash rich. I'd be hoping we start the bidding at 30m plus.

According to Salary Sport,
Matt O’Riley is on £14k a week and that’s the same wage as Siegrist, Ralston, Lagerbielke and James McCarthy.

It was mentioned that O’Riley received a big pay rise in October 2023 but his original wage, would’ve be low after his transfer from MK Dons in 2022.

If the above is true,
Matt deserves another rise if he’s to remain at Celtic Park next season.
It wouldn’t be fair for our biggest asset, only being about the 10th highest earning player at our club.

I reckon he will leave and get 5 times his wage in a much bigger league and I wouldn’t blame him for showing ambition at such a relatively young age.

MOR seems an excellent professional and undoubted team player and I have heard nothing to suggest he's unhappy and wants to leave. However, I did think he was unsettled by the Athletico speculation in Januauary and it seemed to affect him for a while.
Because our club is notorious for selling off our best players, I would not be surprised to see him leave, but I really wish our club would act like the big club they think they are and bring in the additional quality to build a better team around him and progress.

Surely when MO’R signed his new contract in Oct 2023 it contained a decent increase in wages and adds -on plus provision for further increases between seasons as Board would have recognised his value to Celtic and would want to keep him as long as possible. The more he is earning, the more Celtic could raise his asking price .
There are publications around that still want to label Celtic with the biscuit tin mentality. We know what Celtic pay for wages in total, individual wages are pure speculation.

He should be offered 50k pw to stay. Well worth being our top earner and the team should be getting built around him.
Unfortunately he won't as we aren't ambitious enough.

I hope he stays for another year.8 Champios League games this coming season and more domestic medals for him to win Then he can get his big move.

Not sure what BR thinks of the Japanese bhoys or whether they fit in his system. Kyogo does it for me and should stick around but will he be the number one striker? Hatate can be decent every now and again but think he's got a lot more to give and I can't see it. Iwata is steady but is that enough? Maeda is faster than Dai Rea, the Welsh boy. We need better to give it a go in Europe so this transfer window and the next is going to be mightily interesting.

Derry Tim, there is no reason with a good basic wage and bonuses for domestic trophy winning as well as progress in Europe that we couldn’t manage £50k . After all as Bertie Auld told the Rangers player before a match that the Celtic bonuses were guaranteed.
