Nothing new but that's a good few sources now I've seen that ajer, christie, ntcham and edouard will definetely be off this transfer window with a year left on their contracts.

I've also heard that we're going to trigger the 1 year extension on Griffiths contract, I feel personally though he's had his chance and it's time for him to pack his bags. Some might disagree and say it's worth keeping a proven goalscorer in the midst of a big rebuild but there's only so many chances you can give a man and for me he's had too many, he's let the club down, the fans down and himself down and times for a fresh start.

Last season was a disgrace and for all the trophies won previous to that I don't think there sheer lack of commitment and effort in going for 10 in a row can honestly be forgiven. Out of the whole squad I can safely say in my own opinion there should only be 7 names worth keeping,
Jullien, Welsh, taylor, soro, mcgregor, turnbull and Forrest.

I have zero faith in any of the goalkeepers so that should be our very first signing whilst looking to replace the deadwood that is there.

I know some will argue mcgregor was terrible but i honestly think he was let down with the players next to him (brown, ntcham, christie) and was caught trying to do too many jobs but the level of consistency he's shown the past few years means he's a vital part of a rebuild, the rest of them either aren't good enough or simply don't want to be there.

I have also heard McGregor has wanted a move since last summer and still hopes to move on. For me, Jullien has missed far too many games since he arrived and is not tough enough physically or mentally IMO. Turnbull, Taylor, Soro, Forrest, Welsh were the only players willing to stay that showed any kind of form in a torrid season and maybe Bayo deserves a chance to prove himself?
Griff has shot his bolt and we will never a 40 goal season ever again and his fitness and discipline issues are too much baggage.
I think Bitton and Rogic are at the end of their Celtic career, although Ange may want to persevere with his fellow Aussie?
To put it bluntly, we need a clear-out and complete overhaul to exorcise the ghosts of last season and start afresh.

Jullien wanted to leave last summer as well and isn't consistent enough for me. He's had some good games but isn't tough enough so would let him go if we can recoup what we paid for him.

Well if true and these rumours are always a bit sketchy for me. and if the club hierarchy knew why keep them, is it a coincidence most were rotten all season, no idea but surely professional pride and dreams of a big move would drive them o, or maybe the rumours are mince and they had a bad season.

I think Jullien splits opinion with fans and there's no doubt he's had a good few shaky performances especially when it's been against a physical centre forward but I do feel it would be harsh to completely right him off, he got a sore one with his injury which wouldn't even have happened if barkas had dealt with it so last season he really couldn't be judged on.
Prior to that I think his first season he showed us enough that with a bit more focus and consistency he can be a top defender, he was solid in the European games and most of them in the league and realistically is the only out and out defender who can actually defend so for me he deserves another chance.

As much as rogic might know this new manager and up his game I just feel his best days are behind him and we could be doing without someone who struggles to last 90 minutes most of the time, as for bayo I don't think he should be written off just yet it's hard to judge a player when most of their appearances are from the bench.

That's the one thing I never understood with Lennon, he never gave players a chance to get a run in the team and build confidence, he was too quick to judge and stick to his favourites and old ways of playing that in the end came back to bite us in the backside.

Watching Austria v North Macedonia and the big Macedonian centre back Velkovski is exactly what we need in the middle of our defence, bi, strong, hard as nails and clears everything that come into their box .

If we could get our money back on jullien I’d happily let him go. As for griffiths, I’m a huge fan of his but he’s definitely let himself and the club down over the last year or so, and I do appreciate he has personal issues, for me if he can look ange straight in the eye and say I’m ready, I won’t let u down, I’d give him a year to prove it. A fully fit, fully focused, and fully committed griffiths would be in my team every week, but he MUST be those 3 things. If I’m his heart of hearts he can’t be those 3 things he has to move on.

Agree with you garry but we needed that leigh griffiths this time last year in a time of need when we were going for the 10 but it's too late now and it's the start of a new era.
There's only so many chances you can give a player and for me his has ran out despite that fact we're in the midst of a complete overhaul, I think most fans would be open to the possibility of using him as part of a deal to bring nisbet from hibs to parkhead.

We let Griff go and we have feck all. What we have are worse than Dykes, and he's tragic. Hopefully we keep him and Ange can get him on track. No way should we let him go.
