Scott Bain in talks with Aberdeen, that would suggest Benji deal isn't too far away.

Also Ajeti is in talks with a loan move back to Basel however wages are proving troublesome.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2022 11:31:34
It's disappointing that both Ajeti and Barkas are only going out on loan as it would be better to permanently get-shot of all surplus; getting whatever cash we can to boost funds. However, I suppose neither of them done nearly enough at Celtic to merit a serious bid.

18 Jun 2022 12:37:42
Millwall are in for Lewis Ferguson, why not Bain and fee and bring him to Celtic.

18 Jun 2022 13:08:49
Please. No Lewis Ferguson. I don't rate him.


18 Jun 2022 13:23:10
His 14 goals n 1 assist from midfield no enough for ye Brian? In a struggling Aberdeen team at that ?.

Celtic have conceded more goals to Lewis Ferguson, than any other player in the last few seasons.
He can burn the candles at both ends.

{Ed007's Note - I didn't know that, Buzz ? That'll get JFP's, Ter and Pedro's engines running.}

Lewis Ferguson has scored 6 goals against Celtic in only the last 3 seasons.
I can’t think of any other player who is close to that number.
Lewis has scored 7 goals altogether against Celtic because he also scored in our 4-3 victory at Pittodrie in December 2018.

18 Jun 2022 17:11:19
Lewis Ferguson is an absolute no brainer. His physicality work rate and goal threat would be ideal in our midfield. I find it strange we are being linked with the lad Connor Barron from Aberdeen when Ferguson is streets ahead of him.

18 Jun 2022 17:35:29
I've said it many times, Lewis Ferguson should be our 'go to' guy if he's interested in coming. The fee will be neither here nor there if his heart is in it, and playing for Celtic will give him the chance to show what he can do and then get a really big move down south in a couple of years time. HH.

18 Jun 2022 18:07:28
Lewis ferguson all day long for me. The guy has the quality and experience to play for celtic no problem. Plus he would add the needed physical side which he has.

Again I'm obviously in minority of views / opinions on him.

Stats are just that.

All about opinions. I don't rate him as an outstanding player. He looks good at times when playing in a very poor Aberdeen side.

If Celtic were serious about signing him I'm fairly confident we would have heard about it.


18 Jun 2022 20:02:01
Be better off with Barry even now tbh.

{Ed007's Note - Lewis Ferguson is already a better more rounded player than Barry ever was, Barry was a very accomplished CDM whereas Lewis can play CDM and do the box to box job as well and is a bigger goal threat.
Barry's stats seem to be a bit contradictory depending where you look but according to Transfermarkt he played 469 professional games and scored 48 goals by the time he retired, Lewis has already scored 37 goals in 185 games - and wasn't Barry their penalty taker as well?
You can't compare the two as they are completely different types of footballer. Lewis Ferguson is the best young Scottish midfielder since McGinn and one of the top young talents in the country with a Hell of a lot more experience than 22-year olds in our squad. Celtic should always be looking to sign the best Scottish talent - even for the homegrown rule - and if they aren't then it's a dereliction of duty.
Remember the Ferguson camp were RAGING that Aberdeen turned down a £2 million bid from Watford last summer after the promises that were made to them and considering Ferguson is one of the lowest paid first team players at Pittodrie and IF Celtic and Ferguson both wanted the move I'd be amazed if he cost us more then £3 -£4 million.}

18 Jun 2022 20:42:21
No chance mate he wouldn't lace Barry's boots pretty much like trying to compare Barry to mcstay mcstay was levels same as Barry is to Lewis.

{Ed007's Note - McStay and Barry Ferguson were totally different players compare Barry to Lambert or Peter Grant. Lewis is far more similar to McStay than Barry.}

18 Jun 2022 20:57:56
I have to disagree mate I'd say b Ferguson was similar in style to mcstay although Lewis is a good young player he's nowhere near his uncle b Ferguson would walk into any Celtic or rangers team of the last 20+ years I'd doubt Lewis would get a game for both current teams in terms of all rounder b Ferguson wins tackling passing control set pieces I've no doubt David Turnbull will have more career goals than Callum McGregor and he can play DM but he's never on McGregor levels but is levels above Lewis.

{Ed007's Note - We'll just need to disagree but for me you're comparing different types of players - it's all about opinions. I'd compare Barry more to a Roy Keane type of player, McStay was different gravy and could do it all in midfield, not even Scholes could do what McStay done as an all rounder as his defending/tackling like McGregor was atrocious.
I like Barry (and his extended family) as a person and respect him as a player - I hate the wee tadger for being an ex-Rangers player though - but he was never a fully rounded midfielder that could defend, create and score goals from midfield, Lewis has proven at least at SPFL level that he can do the lot, similar to McStay imo.}

18 Jun 2022 21:10:07
Agreed to disagree but if I remember correctly when he broke through the press were comparing b Ferguson to a young Paul mcstay.

{Ed007's Note - Celtic manager Billy McNeill compared Stevie Fulton to Bobby Baggio ?

18 Jun 2022 21:16:34
Did they have similar styles ? listen even the press were wrong comparing Ferguson to mcstay although they do have similar styles.

{Ed007's Note - They definitely carried themselves the same way with a bit of quiet swagger, I'd say that Ferguson and McStay could have easily played in the same midfield, Barry doing the "dirty" work with an eye for a pass and McStay being the Maestro and running the midfield knowing Barry was covering and backing him up. Imagine those 2 as your 2 in a 4-2-3-1 ?

18 Jun 2022 21:27:51
A good pairing I agree with that although I still think he was a lot better than just doing dirty work lol.

{Ed007's Note - There's a phonebox in Fairhill says otherwise! ?

18 Jun 2022 21:38:04
As I've said a few times either in "Ange we trust" or we don't?

Are Celtic genuinely interested in Lewis Ferguson?

If Ange rated him and with all available stats to go on don't you think he would be a priority target signing?

It's a big NO from me.


18 Jun 2022 21:55:51

{Ed007's Note - I've been saying for ages we need to add steel and dig to the midfield as we get outmuscled by teams in there and unless Ange has his eye on someone - or Gucci or Jimmy Mac can step up - Ferguson could do that job at the domestic level and would improve under Ange no doubt. For me he's the best young Scottish midfielder in our league and as I said Celtic should always be looking to sign those players. The homegrown rules need to be noted as well.}

18 Jun 2022 22:07:17
BRIAN. G, maybe Ange is interested in him. None of us know. HH.

19 Jun 2022 09:41:49
I personally don’t think he would come and the team I want to see has better technical players than him in it. I don’t think it will ever happen. If we were going n for him it would have come out. It hasn’t. And it won’t. Probably.

19 Jun 2022 12:19:41

You maybe right, however as I said in one of my earlier replies I'm fairly confident that if there was a real genuine interest then it would have been leaked somewhere.

I agree in parts with what Ed has said regarding signing an enforcer type midfielder however Lewis Ferguson is not the one for me.

Apparently Millwall have made a bid for him ?

Regarding signing young Scottish talent. When was the last time we signed one of them?
We were constantly being linked with
Ali McCann (St Johnstone at time) , Josh Doig (Hibs) , Ramsey (Aberdeen) and others.
If my serves me right many fans were screaming for us to sign Ali McCann and we didn't.

I honestly don't think that Celtic will sign any Scottish based player young or old unless they are exceptional and could start for 1st time. The reason I don't think this will happen is that due to C.V. losses etc they will not want to be giving transfer fees to prop up another Scottish club. as I said unless player is exceptional.

I maybe wrong but time will tell.

Hail Hail ?.

{Ed007's Note - The last young Scottish player we signed was probably Turnbull 2 years ago when he was 20. And it looks as if Scottish based Siegrist will sign for us this week.}

19 Jun 2022 13:51:54
Hi Ed

Thanks for info. Don't want to be nit picky. But

I think Turnbull was pre C.V. and Siegrist not Scottish I don't think and is free agent so no transfer fee involved.


{Ed007's Note - You said you didn't think Celtic would sign any Scottish based players ? Is that me being nit picky? ?
Turnbull signed for Celtic on 27 August 2020.}

19 Jun 2022 15:06:18
Perhaps we are both being nit picky. my post was meant to read actual young Scottish players based in Scotland.

Ps. The only real nit picky person I knew was the Nit Nurse at school lol ?
Mibi your too young to remember them ?.

{Ed007's Note - No I can remember the nurse coming into primary school checking your hair, ears and fingernails. I wish she had checked the cuffs of our jumpers because the girl I sat next to must have been like a teenage boys bedsheets the amount of times she wiped her snottery nose on them! ?

19 Jun 2022 15:27:55

I always though this forum was a well cultured, thoughtful and informative site. Lol ??.

{Ed007's Note - We have our moments ?

19 Jun 2022 22:10:37
On Lewis Ferguson Ed, feels a bit like that Steelers Wheel song with some of the posts on here ?

☘️ ? ☘️.
