A Croatian Journalist has announced that Celtic have offered £5 million for Lovric and the deal should be concluded soon.

@Buzz these rumours are doing my head in
Another rumour is that the boy Henry is going to Ghent for £4.5m and that Legia have turned down our offer for their right back
Nothing seems to change with our Board p! ss around until other teams come in and sign our targets.

If true buzz the fans can no longer moan about the board holding back on a few bob for a player if earlier reports are correct with regards to the clubs valuations for him being different. They clearly see what Ange has offered so far and are willing to back him as much as possible, i just hope he gets who he want through the door. HH.

tim? we've signed some decent players. money is being spent? were looking good on the park? can't see where the board are going wrong here?

The fact someone announced it makes me think, utter p ish. we need defenders . Get them in and go Lawell, save a million on a lesser player and cost us CL qualification. Get it done, buy quality and Ange will make us better in Europe. And uf we sort that we will take our skint friends to the effin cleaners.

Our media haven't a clue about who we are after. They just copy and paste foreign journalists Twitter posts. I hope it's true Buzz as he would be a great signing. Just a RB CH (striker if or when Edouard leaves) needed. Oh and a LB unless Bolongoli stays.

Lovric will be a Celtic player by the end of august. It was said a month back he would sign in the final two weeks and that looks about right. It’s just been the timing of the deal. Nothing we can do about it. Juranovic is still on the cards and so is Couto so we are trying to bring players in. Don’t forget Scales is due to come in and potentially another Centre Half. Buta wanted crazy wages as well as a huge fee and Juranovic is a better player anyway.

But if we sign a loan instead of a tried and tested international then we're at the penny pinching again, we have spent money but we've took just as much in we've seen this movie before,2mill dud who never plays against a 4mill pound player that will.

Tim you started off your post with these rumours are doing my head in that’s all they are rumours, yet at the same time you are having a go at the board because Henry is going to Ghent, It could be he wanted to stay in Belgium and why he chose Ghent it annoys the life out of me when the media print or say anything about Celtic’s interest in a player fans take it as gospel and when it doesn’t happen it’s the boards fault when no one has a clue what’s happening.

FFS the negativity of folk on here does my nut in!
Timalloy, how are the board p. ing around?
We've recruited beyond what I was hoping for since Ange took over and are playing some of the best football we've played in years yet you are still moaning. What exactly are you looking for? You want a full 11 players signed or would that still not be enough, would you also need back up?
Get real. These things take time. Ange has already said if we signed all the players we were linked to wed have signed +70 new players.
Ange is nobody's yes man. If he's happy with how recruitment is going then we should be happy!

Is the Henry to Gent a done deal then? I was a bit skeptical when I seen his valuation, I still believe Kyogo will be our first choice striker and if we are to bring in another striker it won't be for big money as he'll be a back up. Ange already has his man. People might moan about that if we sell Eddy and don't replace him but we have more important areas that need investing in and I'd rather see us get a LW, LB, RB in with that money and Itakura on loan. If we can get those in by the end of the month this has been one of our best windows in a long time not only for the signings but the deadwood we have got off the wage bill too.

Absolutely spot on pod . Some “fans” will literally find anything to complain about. Getting fed up reading complaining for the sake of complaining . There’s a few good factor at the club now, we should get behind it not find something different to complain about.

Ken I could start a list but I'd be here all night regarding duds, the point is we a know who we want and how many times have the board bought the cheap option, and in this case it could be a loan, the boy may be good he may be a dud but the creation boy is a full experienced international, regarding spending money we have still taken In more than we have spent and that's not including st money and merchandise, buy the right players thus season is a direct route to riches that our board love, so just get it right, no more ajetis ahead of toneys.

Again I feel like we’ll bring a couple full backs in a CH and a winger. Plenty time left.

Just because rags and reporters link us with players it doesn’t actually mean we are in for them. Some of these reporters have a following of a few hundred and pretend they are in the know how of Celtic transfer.

Pod1 just because we have made more signings than YOU were hoping for doesn't mean all fans are.

Malky have you read Tbhoy's post on the celtic other page? He breaks down the clubs finances and how it currently looks. This rebuild is going to take several transfer windows. If we need to loan a promising prospect because other transfers are not working out then so be it. We all know we still need reinforcements but maybe waiting until the window closes to assess how our buisness has went would be a more sensible view point. Positive changes are being made and a bit of patience is needed. We will only be able to judge the recruitment when the window closes. These are difficult times with several extenuating circumstances to navigate. This moaning is getting outa hand. It's like taking a spoilt child through Toy'r'us and the child crying because it can't have every toy that's on the shelves.

liamlennon, I should have said expecting rather than hoping. Obviously I hope we get quality players in for the positions we all know need strengthened.
My question is "How are the board p. ing around"?
Just because we are linked with a player doesn't mean there has actually been any interest from the club.
There was a player during the week who we had been linked with Celtic and came out himself and said there has been absolutely no contact from Celtic. This is my point, because the media say it doesn't mean it's true.
Ange has said he hopes to get more players in so let's see hat happens. If it doesn't materialise as hoped it won't be for lack of trying.

Your right it doesn't mean we are after the player if the media are saying so, the journalism in this country is shocking I mean even the papers now go with the headlines according to reports, well are yous not the ones supposed to be sourcing the reports so I definitely agree with you on that one. i say it constantly supporters can have whatever view they want we live in such a snowflake world were a fan can't even say something that other fans don't like, I mean come on, and on signings its massive credit to the manager the way he's turned things around so far because if it wasn't for our last few results and performances then far more scrutiny would be on the lack of fullback signings that we desperately need the manager constantly said himself he's asking to much of what he's got.

Our recruitment has been unreal since the start of the window. It almost seems like every player we have signed has came in and instantly made a difference. The team is improving and well make more signings. Just need to take a back seat and let it pan out.

The 3 priority area’s for me going into the transfer window 10 weeks ago, were the Goalkeeper and both fullbacks.
Celtic have only recently bought a goalkeeper and he looks worth the wait.
It’s disappointing that our club will probably be going into the European playoff ties in mid August, without our first choice fullbacks for the season.
I understand it will be worth the wait if both signings are better than we’ve already got, but it’s still frustrating.
Ralston and Taylor are trying their hardest and are doing a decent job, but we could go up a couple of levels with good fullbacks because they are vital to how Ange wants Celtic to play.

23.) 14 Aug 2021

Agree Buzz with a couple of pacy fullbacks in it's frightening what we could do to teams. We should've hit Dundee for double digits this early in the season once everything is in place we could well see our goals for record smashed this season. Not only will it improve us going forward but it'll allow us to play that higher backline as the fullbacks will be able to get back and tidy up those balls over the CBs.

24.) 14 Aug 2021
14 Aug 2021 13:27:00
There will be a chance no LB will be coming in. We definetly need a starting LB tho. Who have we been linked with at LB? I don't remember one LB being mentioned other than Hickey.

25.) 14 Aug 2021
14 Aug 2021 16:24:14
i don't know if the boy scales can play there i know he is left footed and plays on the left of a back 3 for rovers.

Ange plays inverted full backs, so not so much of a requirement to get to the byline and put crosses in. Inverted full backs come into the middle of the pitch when CB has the ball primarily to create a 1 on 1 situation for our wingers and the opposition full backs. If you ask me they are both becoming better at the job as the weeks go by. Taylor's stats for instance on Thursday were top notch and he was the 3rd most influential player on the pitch.

27.) 14 Aug 2021
14 Aug 2021 17:42:52
Our signings have been good, but, we need defenders in now. Our defence is doing ok, but its still nowhere near good enough. Should have been in for the Alkmar game. Or hefore. Mid to front looking excellent, do the same for the defence or it will feck us up.

28.) 14 Aug 2021
14 Aug 2021 18:28:02
exactly, so taylor not having to overlap as much which is the one thing he's decent at, a lb is a priority for me.
