We've been credited with an interest in Tasos Douvikas. He plays as a striker for Utrecht and reports are that Barkas could be used as a bargaining chip in the deal. Seems a bit lazy to me but he's the Eredivisie top scorer and that's worked out well for us recently!


1.) 09 May 2023 13:02:17
Lazy? That's insane. Work smarter, not harder.

Get rid of Barking and get a top quality striker from a good European league? Shocking business that.

2.) 09 May 2023 17:02:22
I didn't say it was lazy from Celtic, I meant lazy from the Dutch media.

3.) 09 May 2023 18:10:33
That would be amazing buisness if it happens!

4.) 09 May 2023 22:16:58
Kyoto, Oh and Douvikas as our strikers. I would be well happy with that.



06 Dec 2022 13:05:10
It's being reported that Cho Gue Sung is close to finalising a transfer to a new club. I'd describe the links with us as woolly at best, so does anyone think this could be a goer?

He's been dubbed the World Cup's sexiest player so if he's a flop we could at least punt a few calendars!


1.) 07 Dec 2022 09:32:39
Nope, will be surprised if it’s us. His profile has risen so coming to Scotland I just can’t see happening. We will get someone not one has ever heard of.

2.) 07 Dec 2022 10:31:54
Agree with you there MP. Scouting unknowns has worked out very well for us recently so long may that continue.



30 May 2022 20:44:11
There's a midfielder from Gent who's been linked with us on KDS; Elisha Owusu, Ghanaian International. I'm not sure there's anything in it tbh but he's definitely the profile of a No. 6 I'd like us to go for. Good timing in the tackle, quick, strong and athletic but also very good technically - not just a bruiser. Also, good to have you back Ed.


{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Kev. Elisha Owusu of Gent and Aliou Dieng who plays for Al Ahly have both supposedly been scouted for that role.}

1.) 30 May 2022 21:56:45
Yeah I've seen both names mentioned Ed. Like a good few of Ange's signings I'm sure it'll end up being a signing out of nowhere but, like I said, if he fits the profile I'll be happy.

{Ed007's Note - We need to look at the Mark Lawwell factor as well when it comes to potential signings.}



27 Aug 2021 22:07:42
Rubin Kazan, Bordeaux, Everton, Crystal Palace all getting in on the bidding war for Eddy now. While it'll make a lot of fans wring their hands it makes me sad. For me, he's the best striker we've had since Hooper - edging out Dembele purely for longevity - and it's become all-too-common for fans of my generation to only be able to enjoy a player for a brief period of time and wonder what could have been if we kept the gang together. He's not been the Eddy we know he can be lately so it's definitely the right time for him to move on so he goes with my best wishes. I'd love to see a good chunk of the money invested in a big brute of a CB.


1.) 27 Aug 2021 22:18:48
Agree that time for him to go. Not sure if better than Moussa, for me he was total footballer-almost like a third centre half with corners and so composed on the ball, also able to bring others in in way Edouard doesn’t. . Ed has that beautiful composure in the box or on a run towards. I just can’t stand the attitude and I also think that he might stifle Kyogo. I do 100% agree though that I would love us to bring in a proper centre half, preferably someone seasoned with bit of experience.

2.) 27 Aug 2021 23:28:31
On his day an unbelievable talent. Different player to Moussa so hard to compare but both supreme talents. Pity both saw us a stepping stone as both could have been legends.

3.) 28 Aug 2021 00:36:11
Different strengths Chinks you're right but in terms of pure footballing skill and ability, I'd go for Eddy. Dembele was a powerhouse.

4.) 28 Aug 2021 13:44:02
He stared to shine when mousa left imo. I don't think he's as gd as mousa different but not as tough as mousa which Eduard lacks.

5.) 28 Aug 2021 21:52:14
If he starts the two of them tomorrow eddy has to be on the left and kyogo through the middle.



19 Jul 2021 22:29:29
"Rennes defender Sacha Boey (20) rejects Celtic due to the presence of foreign intermediaries, according to L'Équipe. "

Anybody got a clue what this even means?


{Ed002's Note - Sacha Boey (RB/LB) After a year on loan Celtic have opened discussions with the youngster who is cheaper than the preferred Brandon Soppy. Unfortunately, the approach taken was unusual and involved a third party who had demands of his own and this has blocked any move. This will likely of ended any chance of a move, although interest is maintained in Soppy.
Brandon Soppy (RB/CB) is refusing to extend his contract and wants to be playing at a higher-level has attracted interest from several sides but their is concern over his attitude. Rennes are more than happy to pass him on with an admission that Lens, Udinese/Watford, Monaco and Celtic have all enquired after him. Jonathan Barnet has been offering him around and raised the player with Celtic when discussing the future of Odsonne Edouard, and significantly, with Lille when discussing another player.}

1.) 20 Jul 2021 11:20:32
Why go for players with issues or get third parties involved? Totally amatuerish every season.

Excellent first half, very disappointing second half. Daft bookings had a few of them reluctant to get stuck in later in the game. Their penalty was very, very soft. Hatate being back is absolutely massive. I don't think I can handle much more of Liam Scales and I wouldn't be disappointed if I never saw Yang in a Celtic shirt again, heart of a mouse.


1.) 07 Apr 2024 14:10:57
Very harsh on Scales, who’d you prefer in that position?

2.) 07 Apr 2024 14:11:45
Disappointing result but against 12 men a draw maybe not the worst. Think we bottled it a bit in the 2nd half.

3.) 07 Apr 2024 14:18:45
Johnston fresh aired the ball which led to matondo goal and Yang let him cut back onto his strong foot. McGregor's slack pass was the initial mistake though.

4.) 07 Apr 2024 14:42:22
LeedsCelt, I'd have Lagerbielke or Nawrocki at CB next week. Scales has put in a great shift when we needed him but he's becoming more of a bombscare on the ball with every week that passes.

5.) 07 Apr 2024 15:04:35
I’m my opinion Scales had nothing to lose when he got into the team at first he is now playing like a player with everything to lose which is affecting his decision making I think the manage should be taking time to re assure him and get him back to the way his mentality was when he first broke into the side.

6.) 07 Apr 2024 16:07:33
You've made my point much better than I did Lee. That's exactly how he's been playing. If he can get back to where he was, great, but I think there's too much on the line to hope he improves.



30 Mar 2024 20:10:31
I'm looking forward to the gane tomorrow after the dreaded international break. Hopefully we'll see Hatate get some action, what a miss he's been this season. I saw some of their game today and they really aren't anything special at all. A win next weekend is very doable but only if we play the way we can.


1.) 30 Mar 2024 20:21:18
Would you risk him on their artificial pitch?

2.) 30 Mar 2024 23:05:22
Absolutely mate. Probably not the full 90 because he's just back but at least half an hour. He's too important to the team and we're running out of games.

3.) 31 Mar 2024 07:34:55
I agree about his importance but I'm not sure I would risk him on that monstrosity of a pitch.

4.) 31 Mar 2024 08:03:45
It’s a big call about Hatate because he needs game time before Ibrox but it’s that horrible plastic pitch. ?‍♂️.



03 Mar 2024 14:06:52
I don't think we can be too harsh on the players today. The red card and penalty were pretty scandalous. Down to 10 men for 80-odd minutes, there's not much you can do but dig in. I felt our penalty was quite soft as well and Idah lacked conviction in the strike. Just too bad this Hearts team didn't have nearly as much about them last weekend.


1.) 03 Mar 2024 14:24:53
If that’s a penalty today, then Goldson would’ve gave away several penalties since VAR was introduced.

Neil Lennon and Shankland mentioned it’s never a sending off.
Kris Boyd and Steven Naismith said it wasn’t a penalty.

But Cheatin Beaton had other ideas.

2.) 03 Mar 2024 14:27:53
Fair enough; and when you add the absence of Cal-Mac we were up against it today. However, it showed once again that we do not have the battling qualities of previous Celtic sides, who would have used these instances to spur them on. Too many were off it today and we lacked real quality and composure when it was needed.
Not over until the fat lady sings, but it's a reminder of how inconsistent this season has been and BR's record against some teams in this league has been less than impressive.

3.) 03 Mar 2024 14:55:16
I don't think having battling qualities makes you any more able to deal with the opposition having an extra man for almost the entire game though mate. It's going to take its toll no matter how up for the fight you may be. It's a tough old slog, especially against a good team.



28 Feb 2024 23:51:11
What a performance from the team tonight, to a man. The ending at Fir Park felt different than a few of the other false dawns and it looks like that might finally be the turning point. Yang put in one of the best individual performances I've seen for a long time, an absolutely pleasure to watch. We really need to get out of the habit of shipping late goals, though. It's been a consistent problem whether we're 1-0 up or 7-0. If we play with that intent and intensity until the end of the season there isn't a team in Scotland who can live with it.




23 Feb 2024 00:07:13
Scotland are in serious danger of losing 10th place in the coefficient rankings. That would mean after next season there's no more automatic CL qualification unless we can outperform the league that overtakes us (in this case Czech Republic) . Essentially we need Rangers to go on a run and save our bacon yet again. Pathetic.


1.) 23 Feb 2024 10:24:05
The way our club has been run in the last decade and a half does nothing for our chances of regular European football and a team worthy of getting results and respect once again in Europe.
Up until now they have seen winning the SPL as a chance to make a fast buck to lock in the safe and even when we had to qualify, we were never properly prepared and top players were sold regularly. This season has seen more CL disappointment on the pitch while the huge profits have given the directors a very health bank balance. Meanwhile our domestic season, ironically also hangs in the balance. Does anyone know the Latin for - 'Never build on a position of strength' - as it could be our Board's motto.

2.) 23 Feb 2024 10:48:05
I didn’t realise Scotland were in any danger this season but Czech Republic have come from Nowhere this season.

Scotland have got 6.2 coefficient points this season compared to Czech Rep having 12.750.
( more than double )

Scotland are now only 0.53 points ahead but the Czech Rep have 3 clubs left in Europe compared to Scotland only having Sevco.

The Czech Republic also get more points per win or draw because they only had 4 representatives in Europe this season and each win of 2 points gets divided by 4.
( 0.5 points per win and 0.25 points each draw )

Scotland had 5 representatives in Europe this season and each win and draw gets divided by 5.
( 0.4 points per win and 0.2 points each draw )

It looks like the Czech Republic are favourites because their 3 clubs left and they only need one extra win and a draw more than Sevco, to overtake Scotland into 10th place.

This comes as a surprise Kevbhoy because I didn’t think our 10th place could be caught this season but I knew we dropped down to about 15th place for next season.

The Europe draws start from 11am.
It will be interesting to see who Sevco and the 3 Czech clubs get.

3.) 23 Feb 2024 11:26:22
The Prague clubs got Liverpool and AC. Milan in the Europa League draw.
Benfica V Sevco.

The other Czech club Plzen, will find out their opponents in the Conference League draw this afternoon.

4.) 23 Feb 2024 11:29:25
To be honest we don't deserve to be in Europe let alone CL the way the club is run just now Total joke of a board.

5.) 23 Feb 2024 11:30:01
Sparta Prague have drawn Liverpool and Slavia Prague have drawn Milan so two very tough ties. Best case scenario Rangers and the 3 Czezh teams all get horsed ?.

6.) 23 Feb 2024 13:11:41
In the Conference League draw,
Czech club Plzen got an easy draw against Swiss club Servette and the 2nd leg is in the Czech Republic.

The website I seen there’s 0.55 difference ( not 0.53 )
Scotland have 35.850
Czech Rep have 35.300.

I'd like to see Palma in the last few games. He started off strongly then hit some poor form but hopefully he's hungry to impress during the run-in.

Like what? We don't have a single winger producing anything right now and it's a massive factor in our lack of goals. And Tillio being on loan means he'll be due back, hence him needing shifting.

Hopefully Joe. There is contact, completely instigated by the £40m wonder-dud, but it's all part of the one motion from Johnston and he clearly wins the ball first. Really poor decision after getting it spot on initially.
