Just read we have had another bid rejected for Omar Colley. Don't know whether it's an old story revived to stir things up or are we caught in two minds between Colley and Doughty? Whatever the case just do it Celts!


1.) 22 Sep 2020 17:43:13
Ones a CB and the others a winger so I don't think its an either or situation.

2.) 22 Sep 2020 20:57:53
Ajer away for 12-15 with add ons, and Coley in for 9ish. sounds about right. Timalloy. God bless mate. God will make everything ok.

3.) 23 Sep 2020 11:18:20
I think if we let ajer go for less than 20 will regret it in a couple of seasons.

I think we sold Ajeti to Basel earlier this month and as far as I know Barkas is on loan at Utrecht. Celtic also have 13 players currently out on loan including Haksabanovic, Kwon, Tillio and MJ. On top of that we have guys like Forrest, Kobayashi, Siegrist, Lagerbielke and McCarthy, who are contracted but appear to have no future at Celtic.
Then we have the players we bought in the summer window that the manager is reluctant to start, like Iwata, Holm, Oh, Nawrocki, and Yang. While Abada is literally 'a man short', like a couple of others who seem to be struggling Celts?
This emphasizes the incompetence of our Boards contract and recruitment business and the reasons why these saboteurs have to feck-off.
I appreciate there's already enough negativity on here, but this calamitous situation will take a lot of time to rectify on top of our immediate issues and problems.


1.) 20 Feb 2024 09:51:41
Abada is basically on strike.

2.) 20 Feb 2024 12:14:33
Barkas is a utrecht player now.

3.) 20 Feb 2024 12:29:30
Was Barkas' contract terminated which allowed him to move to Utrech for free?

4.) 20 Feb 2024 13:00:15
Celtic mad is good you appreciate that there is enough negativity on here, and I would love it to end .
I appreciate that our supporters have so much intense love for our club and desire for success that they feel they have to let their feelings out and share their anger against Board Recruitment team, Manager and players but the time will have to come sooner or later, that we need to return to what we do best and support and encourage players and manager by creating a positive attitude.
Negativity never wins anything, negativity never yields success . Imagine going into work at computers and owners removed all chairs and seats and leaving a message that from now on there would be nothing to sit on and shorter breaks as the employees had become stale and not interested in work . This wouldn’t encourage workers to produce higher output, similar our players feeling that they didn’t have fan support or encouragement won’t improve on field performance.

I was talking to my Son about Celtic player Haksabanovic last week.

I don’t think Brendan liked him because he didn’t train well and was a little lazy. ( rumours )

Haksabanovic was frustrated because he wasn’t getting played and he then worked his ticket out of Celtic, on the last day of the summer transfer window.
( September 1st )

The following week Abada got himself injured.
Tilio was already injured.
Both Forrest and Yang were inconsistent.

Palma and Maeda both had decent starts to the season.

I reckon Haksabanovic would’ve been an asset to Celtic this season.
He would’ve got regular game time due to the poor form from our wingers this season.

It’s just a pity he spat his dummy out to gain a loan move, instead of fighting for his place in the Celtic team.

Haksa us better than what we have at the minute buzz.

7.) 20 Feb 2024 19:05:44
Ange didn’t think much of him either, he had very much a small part time role with Haksa . I remember thinking in summer he would up his game for new manager . But he didn’t .

Many of us were unimpressed when the return of BR was announced; however, sacking him now will not happen and would solve nothing anyway. Because we would not get anyone better at this time. Call Neil Lennon III or promote John Kennedy, or Mourinho Aye Right!
The established players are a sad shadow of their past glories but I don't really buy into them being told to play pedantic, predictable guff. Remember (and you need a good memory) back in October, we beat Hearts 4-1 at Tynecastle, Killie 3-1 at home and the way we matched Athletico for much of the 2-2 match and the slick style we played. Inconsistency has been our biggest weakness all season, due to drastic lapses in form of guys like Cal-Mac, MOR, AJ, Kyogo and Maeda. Plus several long term injuries to important players - and of course the atrocious recruitment in the last two windows. The Abada problem is also a distracting factor.
The manager must have thought he was coming back to a cushy number with a treble winning side and Sevco in disarray, but he has also been culpable. By underestimating opponents, team selections or tactical flaws - and publicly criticizing the quality of the squad was a major balls-up. However, this season plays out, there will be some major issues to resolve within the club, whatever happens come May-June. The protests and abuse, although understandable, is playing right into detractors and rivals hands and increasing the already mounting pressure on us and a team bereft of confidence and racked with fear of failure. Most of them for the first time in a Celtic strip. It's hard to suppress the anger at what has been allowed to happen at Celtic (even since the crooked 5-way deal with the devil) ; but it's adding to our disruption when there are still trophies to win. Support the team and save the wrath and fury for the proper time.

100% Celtic mad.

2.) 18 Feb 2024 13:13:47
Totally agree with everything you say. Only thing I would like to add is that while anyone connected to the secret 5 way agreement is still at the club, there will always be disharmony between fans and board.

3.) 18 Feb 2024 13:53:23
Our winter of discontent continues.
Everyone in the stadium could see that goal coming in fecking slow motion yesterday. Just like we have seen how pathetic a defence we have Just like a powder puff midfield we have and countless inept wingers. Still 13 games to go with 2 v that lot although you would think they have won the league reading the media and listening to fickle and overexcited fans. Both teams have been crap this season and both will drop points.

4.) 18 Feb 2024 14:29:48
Great post! You are missing the massive balls up by the board relating directly to banning various fan groups from the stadium and in that vain had a terrible run of form and a dip in confidence in the players.

The board are to blame.

5.) 18 Feb 2024 14:36:49
They promised him money they promised him help why would he come back to the same turmoil we got basement bargains should have signed shankland the Aberdeen boy and a good left back but his method of football is far too slow and easy for teams to sit the full backs pass the ball either back or side to side any crosses they panic we can pass 60 times and no end results players out of positions it's all there to see we needed a team that wants to fight but they aren't up for the fight never plays direct always slow the team is all over the place its a shambles surley it's not the fans fault they expect celtic to be at another level but they have dropped a level when your club goes through this again as its happened before why would a board with the money and resources weaken there team there a level where season tickets holders expect as they shouldn't have to be shouting sack the board they should be bouncing out the ground they have inflicted this damage surley if a manager needs funds to build his squad and gets dross to work with that's why the fans are unrest we should be well above all the clubs in Scotland but we're bang average through lack of help the board members must know as we have thrown points away the fight and desire in this squad is gone we back to square one from a treble team to this pure turmoil which could have been avoided with the right people in charge but us as celtic supporters have to endour there negligence and non ability to keep us where we should be they there for us for our team but it's shambolic pathetic that the manager who was promised was let down again for the second time there a level of players and some don't even come close to wear the Jersey but the manager has to try and motivate this we should have got quality to drive on we got what they wanted not the players brendan wanted but we have to keep going and keep supporting as its the second time we faced this so it's up to brendan to try and get results there still games to play we just have to keep hope in our hearts and hope the group know and fight for the title we forgot we should never stop and never give I will keep believing always as I love my club regardless always.

20 million was seemingly spent what a waste man .

7.) 18 Feb 2024 16:25:43
Chalky67, we were told by the SMSM of the millions that was going to be spent Us fans, including myself were gullible enough to believe the media, this left many fans having even less confidence in Board than before . Brendan Rodgers denied he had anything to do with the nonsense and said the Board had their plan and policy.

8.) 18 Feb 2024 16:25:58
That Celtic lineup yesterday cost our club about £11M.
That’s an average of about £1M per player.

9.) 19 Feb 2024 00:51:40
A lot more than the Kilmarnock team, I would suggest.



07 Feb 2024 21:11:09
First and foremost; Glad to be winning at HT, but there are some old concerns cropping up again. Surely BR doesn't tell them to play sideways and back or for the wide men to cut back every time?
That's six or seven different wingers we have used this season and I reckon only Yang and Mikey Johnston attack the defense.
Another thing for me is for a team that ;high press' we are very easy to play through with too many standing off their man. Apart from that we seem to have found a penalty taker but I think we will need more goals tonight to make sure of a much needed win.




27 Jan 2024 18:17:04
The one positive from today was the three points. After starting very well and getting a fortunate break so early, we seemed to fizzle out and RC actually controlled the next ten minutes with passing/ movement and several corners and should have scored. Albeit we missed yet another penalty - twice!
We have too many players that prefer a sideways or backward pass and our wide men cut back far too often and we are leaving Kyogo starved of service and taking him out the game for long periods.
Possession is never a problem, but the decision making and final ball have been better - although our pitch is cutting up really badly. Today was not a one-off as we have struggled to score goals at home a few times this season and that must be a worry to the support - if not the manager and Board.
I was hoping MOR would have been taken off at HT as a precaution and hope that doesn't come back to bite us, with 3 must-win away games coming up. Normally we come back after a winter break re-charged and ready for the title run-in, but we really need to step up a few gears. As far as the 'window' is concerned the gaps in quality is there for all to see, but with such a big squad already assembled, it would take some amount of wheeling and dealing to conjure up solutions and that doesn't look like our club is capable or willing right now.


1.) 27 Jan 2024 18:58:09
Terrible performance. Bernie is no replacement for GT. Defence were caught so many times today with balls over the top and with quick ball movement.

RC played right through the middle of us at times, and yet again we have to hang in at the end.

We do not have a quick centre back when CCV is not on the pitch.

The ball was so slow today, we hardly created a chance and gave Kyogo no support.

Why Palma tried to wrong foot the keeper twice with the penalties, when he should have just hit it with power.

Scales has no right foot going forward. He gets into great positions to have a shot and he then goes left all the time.

There was a lot about Kuhn prior to him coming and his quality, he must have been watching from the bench questioning our quality.

The only bonus for me is Hatate and Maeda have to come back.

2.) 27 Jan 2024 22:18:15
Turnbull unfortunately needs moved on, the pace of the game is to much for him, he looks so slow when he plays, technically gifted but so slow for the top level.



11 Jan 2024 17:20:38
The rumblings seem to be growing about us going for Miovski and Sevco considering Shankland?
This reminds me of many years ago when the dead club and ourselves used to 'cherry pick' from the SPL.
On one hand it weakens opponents, but on the other it keeps the cash in this league and they can use the money for recruitment or overheads.


1.) 11 Jan 2024 17:43:49
Hopefully Miovski is just a rumbling.

2.) 11 Jan 2024 17:53:51
I'd have Miovski over Shankland.

3.) 11 Jan 2024 18:11:41
I'd be surprised if they can afford shankland.

4.) 11 Jan 2024 18:46:20
I would take either and give them oh on loan for the rest of the season and then go and get an older head someone like van veen on a short term deal.

5.) 11 Jan 2024 19:29:13
Rangers2012 cannot afford either Shankland or Miovski, in that there is no doubt . However there is no need for us to get complacent as Sevco have never regarded it as a problem raising the money by fair means or foul whenever they have needed money and I suspect this window will be no different . The OO and Masons always have money available to help their brethren when in dire needs.

6.) 11 Jan 2024 21:17:24
Weejoe I’d be even more surprised if he even considered signing for us .

There are so many rumours and has been so much wild speculation, I have no idea who we are trying to sign and where we are looking?
I never build my hopes up or have any wish-list as for the last decade or more we have signed plenty of players I hadn't heard of! Just want the 'window' to close asap without losing any star players and coming out of it stronger than when we went in?

I saw that Ideguchi had left us this morning and there were stories of interest in Lagerbielke (loan) and Vata also possibly leaving? Therefor it would seem we are making room as Stengo suggests.

The fact we are overloaded in that area after buying two more centre backs last summer would have been a factor and it would seem any speculation with signing Shankland may also be off the mark as he is being heavily touted with Sevco. Whatever happens, it's imperative that Celtic add real quality to improve the team and not stand still, or even lose any good players.

Think Ed 007 and others have said the whole club needs a 'shake-n-vac' from the Academy set-up, through the scouting and recruitment, up to narrow/ short sighted Board; with a DOF position considered.
We have not moved forward an inch since 2012, during which we slipped into European obscurity and allowed Sevco to catch up.
The current 'Custodians' should be very ashamed - but they're not.

It's another example of teams on much smaller budgets and resources doing much better scouting and recruitment than us this season.

Absolutely Gerry; Celtic have played 32 competitive matches in all competitions all season and how many games have we actually played like we should/ could have and the support enjoyed?
The list of 'factors' are real enough, but the manager and players have all fallen well below the standards we know and expect.
Some would call us 'entitled' but when you see the poor standard of the SPL and even the acceptable CL group we were part of, it is certainly a case of 'Should do better'. My worry is getting back to a consistency and confidence required to win the remaining 2 trophies that has been missing far too often so far?

I also think Hatate (and Maeda) bring the best out of Kyogo as too many of his runs are missed or ignored by others.

We are notorious supporters for a conspiracy Gerry, but this season has too many self inflicted 'errors of judgement' and glaring baffling decisions to be true. Something stinks for sure.
