I heard a rumour last night that the reason lennon is still here and will remain till end of season is because we want lampard. But lampard is still being paid his 70k per week wage at chelsea till the end of the season and can't sign another contract till then so celtic are holding off till then.

{Ed001's Note - he can sign a new contract at any time. All it would mean is that the Chelsea payments would stop.}

Exactly but we won't pay 70k per week. So I'm guessing he's said that he won't sign till end of season to maximise his income. If it's TRUE that is. Would make sence.

{Ed001's Note - you would think he would want to get back into a job straight away. He is a multi-millionaire with no need of the money.} Become a Patron!

Lampard, can't see it for personal reasons as his wife and ex missus plus kids are all in London with no chance of them moving up here.

23 Feb 2021 08:18:39
This will definitely not happen.

23 Feb 2021 08:33:29
We have as much chance of signing Lampard as we have of getting Rafa.

23 Feb 2021 08:41:40
Multimillionaire or not it would probably be a difference of 1.2 million a year. The same reason however could also be given to roy keane with his contract with sky till end of the season. not to scare everyone.

{Ed001's Note - of which a huge chunk would go in tax. It would not make a mite of difference to him one way or the other.}

I'm not saying will happen, it probably won't and we will probably still have Lennon come next season knowing our board but I also remember a lot of people saying sevco had no chance at getting gerrard. I guess we will find out over the coming months, I'm just praying its not Lennon.

23 Feb 2021 09:20:52
Cory67, it DEFINITELY won't happen so there's no need to worry yourself over his Chelsea contract. HH.

23 Feb 2021 09:33:23
Not sure if it would matter ( seeing as Gerrard was known to like Celtic ) but app he’s a bit of a rangers fan. Plus his mrs family are all pro sevco. It’s all immaterial anyway as he will have offers for more money from down south in the summer.

Lennon is apparently on 1.5m a year. Lawwell was on about 3.6m a year. Wasting 45k a week on Duffy, and god knows what on laxalt, Kenny and Moi. That’s easily enough to pay to a top drawer manager. Rafa went to China for money, so no reason why we can’t tempt someone here if we pay a decent wage.

23 Feb 2021 10:49:35
I always thought Lennon would be on a decent bonus if we got ten. I’ve heard from a few separate parties that this is the case. One said 3m if he gets sacked before the league is done.
It seems to me that he’s just hanging around for his pay off and it freaky concerned with how the club is getting on. His behaviour at times is baffling and looks like he’s trying to get sacked. Sitting with his feet up when we’re losing g to the bottom club is ridiculous.
Strachan and le guen knocked back pay offs because they didn’t do their job. Lennon is hanging on for a pay off from the club he supposedly loves. Exactly the same as Mowbray did.

23 Feb 2021 12:05:09
degsy. strachan was here for 4 season he won the title in the first 3 of them and lost out on the last one on the final day of the season he also took us to last 16 of champions league and nearly took us to last 8 was so close to it. Strachan was a great manager for us and was very successful to say he did not do his job is a joke and slander.

23 Feb 2021 12:23:36
Can I ask what makes people think we wouldn't get lampard.

23 Feb 2021 12:31:23
The fittest Celtic team I’ve seen was when Strachan was our manager.
Strachan still doesn’t get the credit for the good job he done at Celtic.
I didn’t buy into Ronnie’s teams were fit.
Ronnie himself was probably fitter than most of his players.

23 Feb 2021 13:26:40
United ireland. I didn’t say he didn’t do his job at Celtic. I said Strachan refused a payoff because he didn’t do his job. His decision, not my opinion. I also didn’t say it was at Celtic. He’s managed other clubs.
It was at middlesboro that he refused his payoff. Le guen did it at oldco.

{Ed007's Note - Strachan didn't "refuse a pay-off", he resigned.}

23 Feb 2021 14:44:54
Why would we want lampard?

23 Feb 2021 15:08:25
If celtic get Lampard this would be amazing for scottish football him n SG fighting it out next season, im sure all would agree.

23 Feb 2021 16:23:52
Strachan resigned, but he would have still been due money. He didn’t take it because he didn’t do his job (his words).

23 Feb 2021 18:03:40
thats my point i personally wouldn't be over excited by it. folk saying it won't happen as though he's out of our league i don't agree with.

23 Feb 2021 21:00:42
Why wouldn't we want him? He done very well at chelsea last season with kids. Narrowly missed out on promotion with derby from one of the hardest leagues in the world and was probably unlucky to get sacked this season. he's a huge name and would attract player similarly to Rodgers did.

23 Feb 2021 22:32:57
Im not saying I wouldn't want him only it wouldn't overly excit me but I would also say if it was to happen then It also wouldn't not suprise me for us to be successful my original point is some saying there's no chance as if he's been more successful than he has that's all.

23 Feb 2021 23:55:24
He is away tomorrow.

24 Feb 2021 02:00:11
We just need a manager who is tactically aware, who is not biast towards playing favourite players no matter how rotten they are and someone players want to play for.

On subject of players in the event we sign blockbuster signing in terms of manager, the players who downed tools this season even if they have a change of heart must be removed.
