Apparently West Brom have agreed a fee of £2.9 million for the boy sawyers from Brentford. I'm assuming we weren't really interested in this lad after all if we aren't prepared to match that bid.

I think we go into transfers with the feelbgvthst works is working on 1980’s price lists. Baulking at £3m for a player who we hope to take us to another level is totally bollocks. It’s as if we deluberatly try to make qualification for the CL and moving so far ahead of Sevco as difficult as we can. We get in quality we have been promised it’s doomsday for them. If a player is to add that something special and is outwith our budget at £3m then it’s hard to see us getting Anyo e of class. We spent the same on Boli and he looks awful so far. It’s early I know but he just does t look worth half that and if he is to replace KT we have put another defender who looks a complete liability in a defence we all know has been needing sorted for years. Quality costs, if we have no intention of getting that in don’t tell us we are looking at it. Unless of course you say we just like looking but if they don’t accept Provy Cheques we move on. Sevco are teetering, let’s finish them. Qualifying for the CL would be a good start but we need the players now and the game bed we need won’t cone for a bag of shrapnel.


2.) 27 Jul 2019 14:29:27
We may have bulked at paying £3 m for a player who after further consideration we may have felt that we couldn’t bring this player to a new level . Or on close inspection we may have felt this player may not have fitted into our squad, little things can change manager, s decisions.

Being reported Arsenal are apparently coming in at £22 million now for tierney. what part of £25 million are they not getting? Especially now if Napoli are interested, what makes arsenal think they can offer £22 million if the price is supposed to be £25 million? Surely Celtic being in control of this situation just chase arsenal once and for all, tell them the exact figure one last time and if they aren't prepared to meet that quote don't come back with anything less!

Garryc1977

1.) 04 Jul 2019 10:34:10
They are doing what Celtic have done for years mate wanting the best price for the player they are buying .


2.) 04 Jul 2019 10:36:03
Well in case you missed the reports lately? Crystal palace have quoted 80million for zaha. Arsenal offered 40 million Seems they don't understand club valuations . I also read they bid 50 million for Harry McGuire after man utd had a 70 million bid turned down? Surely they can't be that bad?


3.) 04 Jul 2019 11:36:05
Del it’s what bussineses do I am not condonen it but it’s the way of the world everybody wants a good deal I also want top dollar for the wee man.


4.) 04 Jul 2019 12:14:41
It was reported when they made their first bid, that they only had a total transfer budget of £45 million, then they bid £50million for Saha,


5.) 04 Jul 2019 12:54:33
Wouldn't accept anything less than 30m for Tierney, people can laugh at that amount for a player from our league but celtic are entitled to demand it in todays transfer market. Tierney would handle it at any top club in any of the big leagues so when the likes of wan bissaka goes for 50m after 1 season with Crystal palace then it's only fair.
We need to keep our best players and players especially like Tierney who is one of our own only come around once in a blue moon. I understand we're a business at the end of the day and it's hard to compete with wages/ ambition etc and if a player wants to move on and develop themselves then we have to respect that but bids of 15m then this apparent 22m is a joke for a player of his potential.


6.) 04 Jul 2019 13:13:09
I agree with Greenclover 100%, we should be demanding a packet for KT.


7.) 04 Jul 2019 13:58:32
Kt has captained his country gaining 12 caps, has won 9 trophies, has champions league experience scoring and assists in the process and he has Europa league experience also.

It doesn't matter what league he plays in really at the end of the day he is undoubtedly a talented players that lots of clubs would knocking on the door for if they actually needed a player of his position. As long as we keep giving the rich clubs our players for cheap prices, they will keep coming for them at cheap prices.

It's about time the board stood up to these teams ( I don't know but maybe they are right now ) I would be setting the price at 35m for him regardless of what KT or anyone else said. You don't pay you don't get him simple as that!

Arsenal are trying to take the p**s.


8.) 04 Jul 2019 14:47:21
Lewis dunk £40million.


9.) 04 Jul 2019 16:53:48
That's what I'm saying Phliphlop and Arsenal offered 15 for a 22 year old with a wealth of experience, chase them.


10.) 04 Jul 2019 17:03:08
If you were to put a price on Andy Robertson at Liverpool, then that's what KT is worth. Not too far apart in ability, just robertson he's had the oportunity to perform at higher level.


11.) 04 Jul 2019 17:26:27
@duffandphelps true businesses go in with low bids to start negotiations but Arsenal are being very disrespectful. For a start the alleged 2nd bid of 17.5m plus 7.5m if they won EPL is a joke! They know they will never win EPL as they can't compete with Man City and Liverpool.

Personally I hope Tierney ends up at Napoli as Arsenal are at it.


12.) 04 Jul 2019 17:31:12
Take 25 plus nacho moreno? He’s 33 but still has a good engine on him, could get 2 seasons out of him easy and has plenty experience in Europe could even help the youngsters develop.


13.) 04 Jul 2019 19:19:49
Philtim I’d rather Tierney stayed and said am here for 10 in a row get it right f**kin up the lot ae yeez 😂.

15.) 04 Jul 2019 21:44:20
do any of you really think that pistol pete and mr desmond can't and don't stand up to these other clubs, in our two we have very shrewed and tough businessmen.


16.) 05 Jul 2019 03:24:49
I’ve continually said on here I’d take no less than £30 million for tierney but £25 million seems to be the figure that sets the ball rolling ( too cheap in my opinion) with arsenal playing funny buggers, I’d like to see tierney stay, but if he’s to go I too hope it’s to Napoli, get it right round these EPL teams that think they’re the be all and end all.


17.) 05 Jul 2019 08:02:58
So if you were selling something say for £250 and somebody said £150 and you said no I’m looking for £250 you don’t think some people would then say what about £200 and you might say call it £225 and then sell?
If asking price is £25m and we are offered £22m there’s a decent chance a deal would be done.


18.) 05 Jul 2019 09:44:40
Arsenal are doing what Lawell has done for years. That strategy had seen us stall and go back. If Arsenal want to be contenders they really should not be looking at how we do stuff. Or did stuff. It seems that Peter tripped over the tin and somebody saw it before he could hide it again.

Some reports this morning about the boy Andrew Gutman from the U. S possibly coming in. Apparently had a trial with rangers earlier in the season. With reports regarding Tierney and his hip problems, this one could be a possibility, not seen anything of this guy right enough.

Anyone read this nonsense fae that twat Nicholas? How he can have the balls to question anyone on why they're on BT sports talking about Celtic. seriously? I can take criticism fae big hartson, Sutton. even Walker and provan at certain times as at least they've an interest in football north of the border, but for that twat to have a pop about petrov Nicholas couldnae even remember how to get tae Celtic park. tadger.

Garryc1977

1.) 17 Sep 2021 16:23:16
Garryc1977 what did Nicholas say.


2.) 17 Sep 2021 18:19:21
He’s basically coming out saying petrov knows nothing about this current Celtic team therefor shouldn’t have been on the tv last night talking about the game…. he forgets it was lennon and hartson who were initially meant to be on duty last night till Rangers decided they couldn’t provide adequate security to protect them at ibrox. I’d say given petrov is a regular on celtic tv match days these days, therefor knows where Celtic park is, I’d say he’s more qualified than Nicholas is to come out with such crap.


3.) 17 Sep 2021 19:51:13
Nicholas should check his facts before shouting his mouth off.
Petrov has been part of the Pass to Paradise analysis team many times at Celtic Park and he’s also done the same with Sly at Celtic games this year.


 

 

01 Sep 2021 06:13:04
Some good business done by is this widow. I laugh when I here the 🧟‍♂️ Say we're weaker having lost the likes of christie and edouard. both these guys wanted out . Only last week we were told by Charlie Adam and co we'd be lucky to get £5 million on edouard. given it was his last year I'd have been happy just to recoup oor initial outlay on him, what I will say is last year on contracts or not, we know how to get good money when we sell. In comparison you'd think with all these superstars we're led to believe that mob have there would be at least some interest in their players. keep hearing kamara is worth this, Kent's worth that, morelos is worth this bla bla bla. where were the bids? Now the windows closed get the squad together let them knit properly and let's see how we go. One of our biggest downfalls of recent times was I feel watching us play them, get by with close victories and celebrate as if all was good while all along we were static while they grew in confidence. That's what I'm seeing now between us and them. That win for them on Sunday reminded me so much of that. A scraped 1-0 win against a team in total rebuild mode. Nothings won in august and come January I expect ange to dive into the Asian market, a market he said himself was better doing in January, a market he knows like the back of his hand. Delighted with our window given the job he's had in such a short space of time.

Scottish Football can't seem to function without quotes fro Ex Sevco players, Thomson, Foster, McCann, Adam, Boyd, Loy, Dodds, etc.


 

 

31 Aug 2021 16:56:50
Have to say I'm delighted with the direction ange is looking to take us, and in general I'm please ( so far ) in the main by the signings made, I'm assuming the Greek striker and Portuguese winger is all but done, but I have to say come end of play tonight if we haven't added another 1 or 2 on top of it then that's very disappointing. Desperately needing a CB brought in, could do with another LB and having watched the game on Sunday could definitely do with a CM willing to do the dirty work instead of just the flair side of the game. But by far surely we can get another CB in the building.

Garryc1977

1.) 31 Aug 2021 18:21:25
Hopefully Garry. My gur feeling was we were always going to sell Edouard on the final day leaving things a bit tight.


2.) 31 Aug 2021 18:56:49
Edouard was always going this window Jim. We’re on the right path I’ve no fear of that. Ideally we’d get a CB in tonight, even if it’s a loan.


 

 

30 Aug 2021 07:54:25
I think looking back on yesterday ange would've learned a lot about his formation and style of play. It's great watching christie, Turnbull, rogic etc run riot against lesser teams but like yesterday and midweek these guys especially need to do the dirty side of the game aswell. Every time we play that mob those 3 especially go missing. Now I'm no saying they're bad players, but they need to work harder in those type of games rather than hide. Mcgregor can't do it all in there. We all know what's needed in terms of signings and yesterday again highlighted it. A LW, LB, ST and CB for me is imperative. We'd nothing on that bench yesterday that could make a massive difference. Abada looked done after an hour but no replacement as Forrest was injured. Ralston who was superb again I felt tired and could've been subbed but again due to our frailties at LB his natural replacement was playing there. Christie on the left could've been subbed at half time had we a natural LW in the squad, again nothing on the bench to change that, and with all his ability and he's got it in abundance turnbull could've been aff at halftime, the rogic sub could've and should've been made earlier, not as soon as they scored. All that said ange is only in the door 5 mins and his signings in the main have definitely improved us and with hopefully more to come in before tomorrow night we've definitely got a vastly improved team on anything we witnessed last season's.

Garryc1977

1.) 30 Aug 2021 08:52:13
Ange would have learnt nothing. He's a one trick pony. Couldn't change his socks never mind a formation.


2.) 30 Aug 2021 09:13:02
Think it's a bit early to write the boy off after 8 games, agree he baffles me sometimes can't get how callum is supposed to play in there himself especially against sevco who are strong and btw calkum was outstanding, abada came off in the 86th min why he was doing nothing not even helping the excellent ralston out, eddy should have been off at half time imo and Christie was having one of those days only he can have, but am still with the big fella a said before game we shouldn't get too high if we win and we shouldn't turn on the manager if we lose, but your still allowed an opinion on what you see.


3.) 30 Aug 2021 09:20:41
Bit harsh auf1888. The guys in the job a month or so give him a chance…….


4.) 30 Aug 2021 09:31:11
I was very frustrated at how long it took him to see the problems, the flaws and the under-performers before doing something about it.
Otherwise, I am really hoping he is learning lessons from some very inconsistent performances - especially away from home and once this 'window' is closed, we have a squad a lot stronger than yesterday?


5.) 30 Aug 2021 09:37:07
Auf188, think you're being a bit harsh here, the difference he has made in 10 weeks has been quite incredible really considering the overhaul that was required. His hands were tied with injuries as well and this was highlighted by the strength of the bench. If Jamesy was fit, the Kyogo goes through the middle and Ange admitted he'd have preferred this. If Mccarthy was fit, a lot more dig is available in midfield and more support offered to Calmac. We will make a few signings before the window closes to help support the group however, for me, this was always going to be a two year job as the size of the overhaul is massive. Only four games into the league and the difference in the team is night and day already. Nothing handed out in August, they are only 3 points ahead and likely to lose players instead of buy. I still fully believe in Ange and believe we can win it this year even though I originally thought it might take two.


6.) 30 Aug 2021 09:57:10
who could ange have brought on to change things lads rogic is all that we had really.


7.) 30 Aug 2021 10:01:33
well said matty its the usual doomsday stuff the guy is 8 weeks into his project he inherited a dreadful squad that mob are 4 year into there's 2 players for everything position i tell youse something if this was ange 4th season at us he would have more than 1 trophy.


8.) 30 Aug 2021 10:37:30
Auf1888, what a rubbish post that is - .


9.) 30 Aug 2021 10:51:29
Everyone is entitled to an opinion but to slate ange after a month or so in the job given the shambles left from Lennons tenure I thinks unreal. Nothing Rangers done yesterday gave me the fear, what lacked more than anything yesterday for me was the non existence of Turnbull and christie in that midfield…… mcgregor can’t do it himself and I’m sick of watching us play that mob carrying passengers…… I’m guessing christie will be off but turnbull really needs to up it in games like midweeks and yesterday’s.


10.) 30 Aug 2021 10:54:20
He could have put soro on earlier to give callum a hand for starters, eddy off and kyogo through middle, abada off and put Montgomery out wide and Christie to right, but its OK after the event,


 

 

29 Aug 2021 14:54:11
First things first, I do believe under ange we're on the right track. Before the game I said to my mate I felt turnbull, christie and edouard owed the fans and themselves a performance in this fixture. I don't think any of the 3 showed up particularly well. We've a massive rebuild taking place, the biggest I've known for years from us. I cannot remember the last season we've made so many signings in 1 window, and more is needed. That being said I'm not too downbeat on today's result, yes I'd loved to have won, goes without saying, but outwith the goal I saw nothing from this fantastic all conquering Rangers side to give me sleepless nights. For me before end of window, go get a LB, CB, LW and ST. yes it seems a lot given the signings already made but it's needed. The money is there, get it done Celtic. nothing is won in august.

1.) 29 Aug 2021 15:07:27
Another Goalie might be handy - my heart's in my mouth everytime the Ball's passed back to Hart - might be early in the season for him, but he hardly instills the confidence, the media says he does . . .


2.) 29 Aug 2021 15:19:43
I don't get all the negativity about Hart. I'm glad to have him as first choice keeper.
I no longer have the fear every time a cross comes into the box.
I think we need to stop passing it back to players when there are opposition players so close to them as happened many times today. We're just inviting pressure on ourselves doing this.


3.) 29 Aug 2021 15:41:37
And sign either ali McCann or Lewis Ferguson as we need more in midfieldr.


4.) 29 Aug 2021 15:44:34
As I've said Hart is a decent goalie but he will definitely cost us goals and remember only 1 or 2 on here wanted Hart when we were linked last year. He's an upgrade on what we have but that's not difficult. If the opportunity arose to sign another keeper provided we get rid of the diddies we have I would take it.


5.) 29 Aug 2021 15:53:45
Terrible heartless performance against a rubbish sevco team. ange ball eh.

Auf, is he better than Taylor you ask? I’d say he shows more promise than Taylor. Let’s be honest and I know Taylor gets it stinking at times, but for one is Taylor a Celtic no1 choice LB? Not for me, and if folk disagree that’s fine, if nothing else doig would push Taylor…… Taylor has no competition at LB. bolingoli is rotten and after last years antics should never be near a Celtic top again.

To be honest we’ve no one to blame bar the board for us being where we are in these qualifiers. That said I do find it bizarre a player can get an initial 8 game world wide ban, sign for another club, play a couple of games then his hands continues? But then again it’s uefa, they do as they please. Is what it is.

How can yesterday’s result be Kennedy and strachans fault Quite simply it was a performance on the park which wasn’t acceptable. We can complain about the manager to his back room staff to injuries to guys not yet up to speed…. bottom line is the team on the park yesterday should’ve been good enough to beat any Livingston team at any given time. You can’t legislate for Welsh waiting on a crossed ball to come to him rather than go attack it, you can’t legislate for mediocre performances from players who should be able to contribute a lot more than they do. For me the only player yesterday gets pass marks is a guy I’ve continually heard isn’t good enough for us and that’s joe hart…. had it not been for him with the chances Livingston had we could’ve lost at least 3 goals yesterday. Guys like rogic and turnbull need to realise it’s not all about the flair side of the game, they need to muck in and get dirty aswell, McCarthy had probably his worst ever game aswell. For me though the one criticism of ange I have is until he’s got everyone available and match fit, he needs to decide on his best back 4 and stick with it…. this chopping and changing CBs, constantly changing the personnel at LB, it needs to stop so we can get some continuity in there. I get we’ve injuries and players not match fit just now but he really needs to select what he thinks is his best backline and go with it.

I’m baffled with the keeper comment…. hart has made more saves in 1 game than barkas did in every appearance for us put together…. hart may not be the keeper he was 7/ 8 years ago but he’ll do for me any day over any other keeper currently on oor books.

Why anyone would suggest ange is getting a free hit is beyond me. The guys barely in the door, never managed in Europe, and came in to a club in total free fall in terms of players wanting away, contracts running out etc etc…. give the guy a chance for Christ sake. Yes I think we can all feel disappointed from last night given we were 2 up, but a fool could see the difference in last nights performance and the Milan performance, first 30 mins last night was as good I’ve seen us play in Europe in many a year, yes again mistakes were made, but let’s not forget we’ve a whole new backline and keeper in their, and I include ralston in that as he’s barely featured until this season regularly. We’ve a natural RB at LB, mistakes unfortunately will happen but I genuinely believe given time our defence can only improve. IMO what we can’t legislate for is crazy needless fouls…. soro yet again needs to realise every ball cannot be won, he needs to realise when to make the challenge and when to wait. He gets booked that early last night, makes a few tackles after that, the crown and betis players are screaming for a red card for him and he puts so much pressure on himself he couldn’t afford another tackle after 20/ 25 minutes…… at that level against good opposition he needs to sort that out…… postecoglous biggest mistake for me last night was not subbing soro for McCarthy way sooner than he did.
