Jordan Ibe deal almost done. Will be signed on loan shortly.


1.) 16 Aug 2019 18:43:48
Can he play full back?

2.) 16 Aug 2019 18:44:02
Good signing if true, you heard of anymore definates Dafa?

3.) 16 Aug 2019 18:48:23
Eddie Howe has said he is going nowhere and is an integral part of his squad.

4.) 16 Aug 2019 19:04:47
Big Sutton’s just sayed we’re close to signing Meling. could have done with him 3 days ago!

5.) 16 Aug 2019 19:10:16
Chris Sutton says Meling deal is close.

6.) 16 Aug 2019 19:27:25
Aye but how reliable is that info he spoke about PR coming back which am not sure happened the first time he did come or was it after that he said he would be coming back but didn’t not sure how reliable.

7.) 16 Aug 2019 19:40:25
Dafa howe stated ibe not leaving.

8.) 16 Aug 2019 19:47:43
If it had been done 3 days ago Danny he'd still have been cup tied.

9.) 16 Aug 2019 19:59:33
Was Taylor a few days ago.

10.) 16 Aug 2019 20:17:04
Good point kev 🤦🏻‍♂️🤣🤣.

11.) 16 Aug 2019 23:03:12
Boys he is coming, . Eddie Howe is posturing at best!

12.) 17 Aug 2019 13:18:42
No chance Dafabet u could get this right to is there?



12 Aug 2019 09:50:28
Ok bhoys here is what I have. Taylor looking likely, Benkovic not getting a look in at Leicester, loan deal looking likely. Cifuentes deal edging closer.


1.) 12 Aug 2019 10:12:47
Don't see point of benkovic when Lennon wouldn't play him last time.

2.) 12 Aug 2019 10:28:52
Let's hope so Dafabet 🤞🤞🤞.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 10:54:41
Kev, I don't blame Lenny for doing that. I suspect he didn't play him because he knew he was going back to The Rat at the end of the season and he wanted to give our lads a game. He was fantastic for us when he played and I'd love him to come back for a season. HH.

4.) 12 Aug 2019 10:55:05
Maybe a loan to buy is an option Kev. Fact is we are now short in defence.

5.) 12 Aug 2019 11:02:23
Any outs Dafabet.

6.) 12 Aug 2019 11:04:56
Like Old Killy posted in the Banter page :- I would prefer not to deal with Leicester City at all and have them looking for 'favours' in return or opening up any business links.

7.) 12 Aug 2019 11:11:43
OaB, if Leicester came in and offered big money for any of our players the door would be opened to them and they'd be welcomed in. Same as any other club. The idea that Benkovic or any other player in their squad coming on loan is 'opening up business links' is total nonsense. That's not how it works and anyone running any business will tell you the same. HH.

8.) 12 Aug 2019 11:14:21
Bob that would be ok if we weren't going for the title.
For me you play your best players whether they are Loans or not.
Yes we still won title but I can't see benkovic making any serious impact. He only managed 20 games last season (not all 90 minutes) and now I'd say there are more players infront of him.

9.) 12 Aug 2019 11:15:08
If it has option to buy then that does change it for the better ken.

10.) 12 Aug 2019 11:22:36
Kev, he was a stand out for us when he played. His playing time was restricted because Lenny chose not to play him for his own reasons, not because he wasn't good enough. We often have players on loan. That's how we can benefit from top players without having to pay a big fee for them. If he was here for a season he'd walk into every team Lenny picked if he's fit. Whether there's an option to buy is a completely different matter but the fact you mention it suggests you think he's good enough to be here. HH.

11.) 12 Aug 2019 11:30:37
Plus, he played a total of 28 games for us last season. 20 in the league, 4 in domestic cups and 4 European games. That's 40% more games than you claim he played so perhaps he ain't too shabby after all. HH.

12.) 12 Aug 2019 11:41:44
He's a good player but lenny was right to play the boys that are here this season. incidently ajer and jozo hardly put a foot wrong so he was proved right. he's injury prone as well.

13.) 12 Aug 2019 11:45:23
Bob out of our 4 central defenders he played the least games.
He didn't stand out any more than any other CB and in fact is say Ajer out shone him by miles.
My point at the beginning was that Lennon wouldn't play him before and he was behind Ajer and Simi under Lennon. Now add jullian to that I can see him getting very much game time.
Unless there is an option to buy then I'd say it's a pointless loan.

14.) 12 Aug 2019 11:45:23
If we get Benko on loan might be a sign that McGregor will on his way next as makeweight deal Benko and £6 mill for Calmac. obvs not in this window.

15.) 12 Aug 2019 11:47:50
Benkovic is a great player but would he be happy being the 3rd choice CB? He isn't going to play before a new 7m signing and I can't see anyone removing Ajer from that starting 11. One of the 1st names on the team sheet for me.

16.) 12 Aug 2019 11:51:33
Benkovic would be a great addition but he did seem to get injured very easily. Unfortunate Im sure but still a concern.

17.) 12 Aug 2019 11:56:06
4th choice bubs because he's clearly behind big Simi as well.

18.) 12 Aug 2019 12:05:40
Callum McGregor is the best footballer at our club. He could play in the premier league no bother. Undervalued completely. If tierney was worth £25m. Then surely Cal Mac would command a fee upwards of that.

19.) 12 Aug 2019 12:34:34
Ken, you're right about McGregor. Top lad. The one to keep an eye on at the minute is Christie, I reckon he'll turn out to be at least as good as (if not better than) any other player we have now. HH.

20.) 12 Aug 2019 13:02:01
Kev much as Simunovic is playing well just now Benkovic is a better player IMO.

21.) 12 Aug 2019 13:07:14
Christie and McGregor should be tied to massive contracts.

22.) 12 Aug 2019 13:26:10
How long are they on contracts for, let’s be honest a contract nowadays means nothing, apart from putting the fee up when they move. Although, probably only makes a big difference if they are getting near the last year.

23.) 12 Aug 2019 14:06:50
Christie on a 3 year deal. McGregor will be on 4 since he signed a new 5 year contract last year. Or the year before. Not 100% sure but if they both sign again they’ll be up there with the highest paid at the club.

24.) 12 Aug 2019 17:58:15
None of them improve the team. Maybe Taylor will out Boil. Squad weaker if that's our business than what finished last season.

25.) 12 Aug 2019 19:09:05
Dafabet we only want to know if wanyama is coming 😎

26.) 12 Aug 2019 19:52:45
And Melling.



07 Aug 2019 20:54:45
I posted a few weeks back that KT was 100% off once the valuation was met. Should have some good info on new players later this week.


1.) 07 Aug 2019 21:05:46
Absolute gutted tbh.
Arsenal have got an absolute bargain here. Keep us posted anyway Dafa, we move onwards!

2.) 07 Aug 2019 21:23:02
Rich T sure has missed you Dafabet 😂
The move was always going to happen, when the boy wants a look at something else it was only going to come down to the right deal for all involved, just hope we use the money wisely and get suitable replacement.

3.) 07 Aug 2019 21:37:18
Someone on a previous post was correct say his name 3 times and he’s appeared. Wonder if that happens with Ed 007?

{Ed007's Note -


4.) 07 Aug 2019 21:39:39
A don’t get why the fans are cracking at the board? The wee man wanted the move wee move on cracking piece of bussiness.

5.) 07 Aug 2019 21:59:38
Anyone know the price.

6.) 07 Aug 2019 22:01:02
We all knew this would happen, anyone saying KT didn't want the move is deluded.
If he didn't want to leave he would have came out weeks ago and said he was going no where. I'm more annoyed about Sinclair possibly leaving, I really hope Lawwell spends the money and gets 3 or 4 quality players in.

7.) 07 Aug 2019 22:03:19
Sorry dafabet but the ed posted that KT was of about 2 days after the scottish cup final. He is definitely the one who broke it on this site.

8.) 07 Aug 2019 22:05:47
🤣 good to see your still about mate!

{Ed007's Note - 👍

9.) 07 Aug 2019 22:18:58
For me Lennon should be given the full £25 million to strengthen our team. Gutted we’ve let KT go, annoyed that arsenal have pissed about for over a month leaving it till the last minute to sign him when Celtic made it abundantly clear from the off the acceptable fee. Absolutely no good reason why Lennon shouldn’t get that money given tierney was a product of our youth system costing us absolutely nothing.

10.) 08 Aug 2019 09:01:01
Man it really amazes me that people think because a player comes through the youth system he costs nothing. People seriously don't know how football clubs run eh.

11.) 08 Aug 2019 10:23:26
I bow to your knowledge Kev of the day to day runnings of the club 👍🏻.

12.) 08 Aug 2019 16:06:53
Does it matter that he moves on the last day of the ENGLISH transfer window. We still have three weeks to find a replacement. In any case, he is still coming back from injury and will take maybe up to eight weeks before he's match fit. The earliest I would expect to see him back in the hoops would have been about October.

13.) 08 Aug 2019 21:15:51
Kdycelt, it doesn’t really matter it was the last day of the English window, it’s just annoying that arsenal never paid the acceptable fee earlier. Had they done it instead of messing around for months maybe more signings would’ve been made by now. who knows.



23 Jul 2019 10:29:06
Got a wee bit of info today, we are still looking for 3 players, a defender, midfielder and a battering ram of a Center forward in the Sutton mould, we could be set to break our transfer record on the right forward. Will update once I get more.


1.) 23 Jul 2019 11:02:17
I understand that you have some form of contact Dafa. Decent signings in each position?

2.) 23 Jul 2019 11:07:13
Many supporters would be happy with that happening - as long as the defender was a RB lol.

3.) 23 Jul 2019 11:48:33
That can't be true the guys on here are saying that no one will be bought now that arsenal have pulled out of KT signing.
Surely you know that Dafabet.

4.) 23 Jul 2019 13:05:23
But once it’s done dafa the know it all posters ( extensive knowledge of Israel market ) will still complain about something 👍.

5.) 23 Jul 2019 14:17:34
We habe Edouard Griffiths and bayo who we've still to see play so can't see us spending big when we have 3 strikers already.
As for a defender and midfielder, hopefully we get this israeli boy and look for another back up right back or centre half for cover,
We still need a solid physical midfielder to help the likes of brown and mcgregor if we get to the group stages but that would probably be dependant if we sell ntcham and kouassi, can't see that happening but.

6.) 23 Jul 2019 14:32:08
Greenclover one of the 1st things Lennon said when he got the job was that he wanted another striker.

7.) 23 Jul 2019 14:42:22
Let’s wait and see but the 3 positions mentioned will be covered with quality, potentially a loan signing. I’ll get some names and post them as usual. Apparently a real willingness to spend big and break the transfer record on the right forward.

8.) 23 Jul 2019 15:01:19
That sounds really positive Dafabet. I think if that happens it will definitely knock the wind out of Newcos sails along with the money they have to pay back to Ashley. Coybig 😊.

9.) 23 Jul 2019 15:01:36
Dafa I've said few times it looks like they are willing to spend when you consider they have put bids in of around 20 million this window. But the people in the know say we ain't spending if we don't sell and the bank in closed.

10.) 23 Jul 2019 15:13:46
Greenclover, yeah we’ve edouard, griffiths and bayo and if all stay fit and healthy then I’d happily go with them in order to strengthen in other areas. The problem is bayo so far has been constantly hampered by injuries, edouard gets his fair share of them throughout the season and griffiths who I love is just coming back from his own personal demons and I’m delighted he is back however no one including griffiths himself knows what’s around the corner. another CF can only be a good thing.

11.) 23 Jul 2019 15:16:24
You mentioned possibly looking at McTommey of ManU is that something that is being looked at still?

12.) 23 Jul 2019 15:17:20
@Dafabet I have information that Celtic will, probably, maybe, some time in the future sign some players, but my source cannot be revealed.

13.) 23 Jul 2019 15:35:10
Kev83. You’re always on it. Points are always justified and make sense. Always have constructive input. And that’s not taking the p***!

14.) 23 Jul 2019 15:38:05
Tim are u definitely positively sure or is that a mibi lol.

15.) 23 Jul 2019 16:21:04
Try my best ken.

16.) 23 Jul 2019 17:09:48
Get a room 🤤.

17.) 23 Jul 2019 17:23:39
I remember Lennon saying that kev and I agree Garry that injuries/ issues will play a part this season but has a striker even had a solid link to us since the transfer window opened?
Unless they're waiting until later in the window or the last minute to see what position we're in then I can't see anything happening otherwise we would have already made attempts for another striker.

18.) 23 Jul 2019 18:08:08
Posted already on Banter.
We want a battering ram of a forward? How about Onuachu who plays for Danish Club Midtjylland, Rangers next opponents if they beat Progres.
He is an absolute monster, aged 25, 2.01m (6ft 7ins) and has 6 caps for Nigeria, all this year. We could buy him for £5 million after he knocks Rangers out in the 3rd round. A far cheaper option than Assomalonga and a great target man, for the rest of the team.

19.) 23 Jul 2019 20:19:48
Ken are you hard up my friend? You seem to be buttering the Bat up for some reason.

20.) 23 Jul 2019 21:16:02
Mally you’re the man too. Don’t get too flattered I hate everyone equally 😂🤔.

21.) 23 Jul 2019 21:19:48
Still looking? Surly we have identified player's by know.

22.) 24 Jul 2019 09:01:34
I heard we were going to sign a lot of great players too. The problem is I’m alwats hearing that from people with sources but, let’s be honest, it’s usually wishful thinking, a punt or a wild guess that comes to nothing. Salt and a lot of to be taken with every claim is the order of the day.



20 Jul 2019 16:04:29
Danny Simpson deal is a non starter, won't be happening.


1.) 20 Jul 2019 16:47:01
And your reasoning dafa?

2.) 20 Jul 2019 18:35:44
So we are inviting him for a trial for no reason?

3.) 20 Jul 2019 19:15:24
The trial has been cancelled, you heard it here first.

Brown what a servant, time to go to pasture.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 22:53:18
Why is it time for him to go to pasture as you say dafabet, he played well tonight . I for one am glad he’s with us, still need him around . Everyone knows what he gives us on and off the pitch, in fact I’d be surprised if he went to Australia as it will be burning away at him, his and the teams performance at their dome.

Does anyone on here think that he will want that picture of the people giving it to him to be an iconic moment for them in the season. He’s too much of a competitor for that. He won’t be happy til he’s pictured standing over them, probably with another league medal in his hands. Too many people want to write him off too early.



05 Dec 2018 21:46:10
How we drew that game I will never know. Perfectly good goal chopped off and we missed a pen. For me it's a must that we get a new striker in this window.


1.) 05 Dec 2018 22:56:41
I don't know why Griffith's even hits the pen. Christie and Ntcham both scored penalties recently, so Griffiths shouldn't be near it. Knew he was going to miss, he and Sinclair hurried their pens in the last 2 games. Christie is the player in form, he should take it.

2.) 05 Dec 2018 23:27:25
Agree can't see much wrong with the goal chopped off (expected) but that penalty was shocking and agree both rushed their penalties which is uncharacteristic of both players.



13 May 2018 19:34:37
It was a nothing game today however we need to be much better next season. Rangers can't be worse, they can get better. Hail Hail.


1.) 13 May 2018 21:12:23
The magnificent 'invincible' season was always going to be a benchmark for BR and the team, but in reality it may never be equaled again as everything fell into place perfectly last season.
This season has seen numerous injuries and form dips, resulting in 33 less goals scored and the winning margin drop to nine points - from the previous years 30, with us losing four games and drawing ten and although it does show the performances have not been as convincing and the gap between first and second has closed, we are still by far the top side in the country, but we do need to keep improving and adapting to maintain our superiority.
There's no doubt most teams raise their game and pack their defense against the Champions - that's the way it always is - but we really need to work on overcoming these tactics and especially making maximum use of set-pieces, as we do earn a fair amount every game, but waste far too many.

2.) 13 May 2018 22:12:46
There was nothing at stake today so the result wasn't important. It's just a bit disappointing though that we finished the season with 2 home matches yet failed to score in either of them. I do think that we need to address this in the summer.
Just a small point, and it has nothing to do with the result today, but how is the amount of injury time worked out? . In the first half there was no injury time at all, and in the second half there was only 2 minutes despite there being six substitutions, an Aberdeen goal, and the trainer being on the field. I was always led to believe that there should be 30 seconds added for each substitution and 30 seconds for each goal scored, that's before the time for any actual injuries.
This isn't complaining about the result today, I'm not sure we would have scored if we'd been playing for another half an hour, it's just that in England they seem to add on 4, 5, or 6 minutes at the end of a game. It seems to be quite a big difference.

3.) 13 May 2018 23:25:35
Would it be too difficult in this age of digital timepieces and and other ways of measuring time, to have someone somewhere pressing a button for every stop and start in play, and working out the added time, better make that two people of different persuasions to rule out any accusations of bias.

4.) 14 May 2018 08:15:22
The game yesterday was a nothing game as the players wouldn't want an injury before our hopefully history making game next Saturday. Hail Hail.

5.) 14 May 2018 21:09:44
Celtic team by their outstanding achievements last season and this deserve to be able to take their foot off the pedal in games of little importance . The vast majority of our supporters on forums and in our stands understand the need for the team to preserve some strength and enthusiam to a more important game.



21 Apr 2018 14:40:30
This Celtic team that is going fir a double treble are poor, nothing to boast about.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 15:52:39
We'll be doing a lot of boasting next Sunday 😂😂😂.

2.) 21 Apr 2018 16:38:28
I Daftybet, A poor team that has only lost 3 domestic games in 2 years, Get a grip of yourself man.
We had a poor game after last week, we will take the new club by 5 or 6 next week to win the league at home, I bet you will be crying into your cornflakes when we hump your team.

3.) 21 Apr 2018 21:56:44
Don’t think it’s a poor team but we have dropped points in 12 games this season in a league that isn’t high in quality

Stop living in the past with 3 losses in 2 years, last season is gone, this season is now and it’s been a poor one.

Far too many disruptions to the team, be it injuries or BR changing teams for the sake of it.

I can only recall at best 5 good domestic games this year and I hope it’s not a sign of things to come next season.

4.) 22 Apr 2018 10:29:23
Agree kev, that’s why I’m so frustrated. We can’t win more than a few games in a row. Jon away and boil your heid, I’m a Celtic man alright, I just don’t wear the green tinted specks like most other fans!

5.) 23 Apr 2018 23:29:05
Yes we are so poor that if we happen to win the SPL by some fluke and then go on to beat Motherwell in the SFA cup final, the only decent thing to do would be to stand aside and let Motherwell go up for the Cup . We should accept the runners up medals because some of our fans think we are poor .
Poor I remember the 90's we were poor, I remember the early 60's we were poor . I certainly don't relate B R 's team to those others.



11 Mar 2018 14:32:47
Rocking in here boys, brilliant hospitality and more importantly an easy win. Welshboy I have no do I you will gladly pay our charity bet. Hail Hail.

Was lucky enough to get a game of golf at Lochlomomd golf club yesterday and Davie Moyes was there with Dean Smith the villa manager. Got talking to him and asked if Ajeti would make it at Celtic, a resounding NO - he is not Celtic class was the response. On the reports of West Ham having an interest in Eddie he said NO. Good player but lazy.

KT will be off for 25 million plus add on. I will confidently say that Mcgregor will stay. For all KT badge kissing etc, he wants a move. Wee Callum operates under the spot light and will remain loyal. Tells you everything about the guy.
