Bitton away at end of season?

{Ed007's Note - I've been saying for a while that I could see that happening, Kev. It;s a bit of a stick or twist for Celtic with him going into the last year of his deal - do we still only offer over 30s a years extension? - and will Bitton himself be happy with that at his age and only being a bit part player?
He had the chance to return to Israel last summer but decided to stay, maybe now is the ideal time for him and his family to return home and start playing every week.}

If he leaves it will be with a huge thanks from me as he has been a great servant and we then need to find a replacement with his quality.

Kind of coin you think we will get for Bitton. CCV celtic man next season is the word on the street.

{Ed007's Note - I'd just let Bitton leave on a free as a thank you for his service.}

You'll struggle to find a more selfless player and that's why his team mates have so much love and respect for him. He's so often forced to be a square peg in a round hole and it gets him stick from the fans but he's the ultimate team player. All that being said, I think we probably could improve on him in the summer window.

Being reported in the Jewish Telegraph and his Instagram seems to back it up.

Free he will walk out Celtic a millionaire. He didn't do it for nothing. Would you let Calmac leave for nothing. Would be looking for 1/ 2 million for him.

{Ed007's Note - Calmac is 28-years old, Celtic captain and one of the best Scottish midfielders of his generation. If Celtic sell Bitton he will be due any money due on his contract plus 5% of any fee we receive
He could always just sit and see out his contract and get around a million in wages for doing nothing then leave on a free next summer along with the loyalty bonus for seeing out his contract.
Probably when you work out the finances of all the options it'll be a few hundred thousand £ of a difference if we got £1 million for him.}

You have to give a player what he's owed In a contract. That can't be right, so we had to give Tierney 4yrs money and they walk into a multi million pound contract.

{Ed007's Note - If a player doesn't ask for a transfer they are due a percentage of what they're outstanding contract is worth plus 5% of the fee the selling club receive. KT asked to leave in the terms of transfers.}

A loyalty bonus for running down their contracts. Jesus some gig they are on.

{Ed007's Note - These days players have a loyalty bonus tied to the end of their contract - remember Henrik and the board pulled a flanker with his? Transfers are not as black and white as a lot fans think and that's why sometimes it's easier just to do a deal for them to leave for free.
It would cost Celtic well over £1 million if Bitton decided to stay and leave on a free next year - and to be honest I don't think he is part of even Ange's short term plans. We have Gucci to play in there and it looks like Bosun Lawal will be promoted to the first team squad for next season.
I don't know if Celtic will be looking for a fee for Bitton, all I'm saying is I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't.}

Cheers Ed if only I had talent.

That's big news to me Ed. You'd think if a player agrees to the move then they shouldn't really be entitled to any remaining wages as they're essentially an equal partner in ending the contract.

{Ed007's Note - If you hand in your notice you're still entitled to lie time, holidays due and contracted bonuses etc If you get paid off you're due redundancy, holidays etc etc That's maybe the best way to look at it.... Feck knows lol

Fair enough. Just another reason on the ever-growing list of why we should have stuck in and been football players lol.

{Ed007's Note - ??
