Being linked with J league players already and mooy midfielder who if I remember is quite handy good playmaker.


1.) 11 Jun 2021 13:28:21
I am sure there are a few there alright mally. Hopefully a bit of quality we can acquire without been robbed like with epl players.

2.) 11 Jun 2021 15:22:10
We definitely need real quality in key positions and I hope he is serious about what he is quoted as saying; another thing I don't want to see, is half a team of last-minute loans or panic buys.

3.) 11 Jun 2021 15:36:58
I didn’t realise mooy was at st Mirren for a couple years before Man City and Huddersfield.

4.) 11 Jun 2021 17:42:51
Here we go with every good player to emerge from Asia 8n the last ten years being tipped to be coming to us from guys in Possil, Clydebank, Montrose and Coatbridge. I'll start, Naka on his way. Gospel.

5.) 11 Jun 2021 18:17:59
I think we need players with character over players with talent. Character and determination will always win over quality if it's a choice of ne or the other.
And with that theory in mind I sincerely hope Big Ange doesn't sign any French players. HH.

6.) 11 Jun 2021 19:45:03
I hope he doesn't sign any players from some far flung points who are, or become international players, and miss so many games a season because they are traipsing to the other side of the world and back .

7.) 11 Jun 2021 22:43:53
Not sure what you mean aindoh 🤔, we've had no problems with Rojic 😆😜😉.

8.) 12 Jun 2021 12:33:21
Is Mooy the guy that played in the EPL. I remember his name from somewhere I don't watch any other football other than celtic, so I will probably be wrong.

9.) 12 Jun 2021 12:57:01
Yes Marco mooy has played in the Premier league but he is no better than what we have. A squad player at best if that.



01 Jun 2021 23:24:59
Pep says ange is among the top ten managers in tbe world.


1.) 02 Jun 2021 01:01:15
That's fine but why is he only been in Japan and Australia? Also maybe its the fact that the club he manages is owned by the man City group and pep was being a company man.

{Ed001's Note - he's not saying it because of that, Pep has a lot of respect for him and he was hired by the Man City group because of that. City go through Pep for almost every football decision, they even chose their club in Spain as Pep's brother wanted to buy it but couldn't raise enough funds. So they stepped in and paid the rest.}

2.) 02 Jun 2021 03:58:24
Did it matter that SSevconiansuke Nakamura only played in Japan before he signed for us?

3.) 02 Jun 2021 06:09:23
No he didn't he played in Italy.

4.) 02 Jun 2021 08:05:28
Celtics new manager will be no good, the players that Celtic will sign will be hopeless, the Celtic Fans will not be happy with the Celtic Team, all possible headlines from Scottish Newspapers and Media, before a ball is kicked this season.

5.) 02 Jun 2021 08:35:48
Love the filter on dnn's post 😆😅.

6.) 02 Jun 2021 10:00:00
I made a mess of that one lol. But in hindsight going from Japan to Serie A in Italy, is an even bigger jump in class than SPL and he held his own.

7.) 02 Jun 2021 15:19:37
Like the rest of us, I was disappointed Howe didn't sign, but I would be a liar if I said I was surprised. Then it went to shock over Big Ange, the who the feck is this and here we go again. Well, since that I decided to look into the guy and listen to people who know him and how he works. I have warmed to him. I like the cut of his jib and especially his thoughts on how to play the game. He attacks and that's us, but hopefully he can deliver a defence that isn't a feckin joke too. I am now happy to welcome him and get right behind him. My fear now is that shower of useless barstewards of a board will feck this up too. If you do arrive Ange, welcome to the Greatest Club on the planet and good luck mate. We were all disappointed, but we need to stand behind this guy. I for one will be. HH.

8.) 02 Jun 2021 16:20:01
Some Everton fans seem to want Ange as their new manager.

9.) 02 Jun 2021 18:02:58
Saw that Buzz.
Like most fans I've been pondering the idea of Big Ange coming in.
I've gone through the range of emotions from 'Who is he? ' to 'What the fekk? ' to 'Are You Serious? ' to 'Is This The Level Our Club Has Fallen To? ' and now I'm at the stage where I don't really care anymore if we announce Keano as the new manager.
People talk about him being the best kept secret in football management, which I don't buy into. Football is totally global as far as contacts are concerned and if he was this 'next big thing' then why hasn't his name popped up before now in connection with any British club? He's 55, he's not a young kid and he can't have been kept such a secret unless he's the fekkin Messiah.
Clubs sack managers all the time and if he is that good then surely someone would've taken a punt on him before now.
If he comes to Celtic then he'll get my total backing, because our shytshow of a club have given us no choice in the matter. If he wins the league for us next season then I'll openly admit that my doubts were unfounded. HH.

10.) 02 Jun 2021 19:41:19
That’s exactly it besty. if he’s so good then why at 55 has he not been given a shot in a more established league . I know he got the socceroos job but that was probably based on his performance in the A league.

11.) 02 Jun 2021 22:47:20
We can all speculate as to why he has never managed a team in a league of higher standing, but that's all it is. Speculation.

Who is to say that in the past, he has been offered manager jobs in European leagues but wasn't interested due to family commitments at that time or challenge didn't appeal to him. At age 55 circumstances might be different for him now and less need for him to travel approx 17/ 18 hours on multiple flights back to Australia.

Was travelling back to Australia not one of reasons Rogic was wanting move closer to Qatar?

12.) 03 Jun 2021 00:00:43
I'm thinking/ hoping he's the Aussie Greek manager version of lubo.

13.) 03 Jun 2021 06:49:36
Dnn38 Didn’t he put himself up for the sevco job after Pedro? If so he’s obviously been interested in managing in Europe . I read the other day apparently he’s one of the best top 10 coaches in the world . Lawell must be feeding out these lines to try and convince us he’s a new wenger .

14.) 03 Jun 2021 22:29:14
Look dnn38 I hope your right and iam wrong but it’s definitely a worry that his biggest domestic job has been Yokohama or Melbourne, maybe I’m being disrespectful to these clubs but a lot of fans had doubts about Howe because he hadn’t managed a big team, at least he’d managed in a big league.



01 Jun 2021 13:02:28
Reports that ange doesn't have credentials appears to be nonsense, negativity from the media is a disgrace and our fans are buying into it.


1.) 01 Jun 2021 13:56:17
I said it was bs he has been in continental competition with his current team the licence he has will be of equal value to the uafa one as long as fifa recognise it uafa can't.

2.) 01 Jun 2021 15:38:12
Mally, I’m not sure the fans are buying into the negativity from the press, I think we are pretty much just negative the way the club has behaved in the last year. I am obviously only speaking for myself, but if he hasn’t got his badges I don’t particularly care . We all know, this isn’t the best possible manager we can get, it’s one of the cheapest ones, who they can dress up to look like he has some great cv. Pep may have been positive after a friendly against one of his teams, and now that is getting dragged around like a badge of honour . We don’t need the press to tell us we have fumbled along since before sacking lennon, we can all see it ourselves . If there was a poll now of fans, how many would be confident or turning the league back in our favour next year? I’d presume it would be very low.

3.) 01 Jun 2021 15:43:11
I am sorry but this whole mess with ange, now hearing Kennedy and Strachan are staying in the backroom staff and now maloney could be joining is just a complete f*** up. you could of thought that if howe dropped the ball the hoops would have another top class man on the list. but unfortunately I don't feel it. I could be wrong. and I hope I am or its going to be a complete disaster.

4.) 01 Jun 2021 16:12:32
Quinn who would you realistically say the best manager we could get is?

5.) 01 Jun 2021 16:35:45
Look the press are loving it and it's all negative, keevins on ssb saying he has no European contacts, clearly didn't do his homework as someone close to him says he's plenty as a chunk of his players played in Europe when he was aussie msnager, just negative mince for the sake of it.

{Ed007's Note - Isn't it more important who the DOF's and Head Scout's contacts are?}

6.) 01 Jun 2021 16:54:04
Royjac, obviously it’s only opinions . Favre if we could have afforded him would have been more appeasing to the fans. Tripovsky wouldn’t have cost the earth to get from Prague, rebrov from ferencvaros has a decent record . He may turn out to be decent, and ill hold My hands up, but two weeks before we come back, missing loads from the first team, inc out captain . same flat coaching team, no dof or chief scout and an incoming coach who has no idea of the competition doesn’t fill me with confidence . I appreciate the people I named don’t have much info on our leave either but they all will know players from their respective markets that could improve us. I hope it will work out but I see lawell hands all over this, and it seems to me to be more penny pinching.

7.) 01 Jun 2021 17:00:26
Deffo ed crucial we get that right but some of the stuff being said about the man is just rubbish.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

8.) 01 Jun 2021 17:04:08
We don't give a feck what the Sevco press say.

9.) 01 Jun 2021 17:48:09
Quinn no chance any of them are coming to Scotland

Contrary to what many people believe or think the market the likes of Celtic have for picking a realistic manager is very small, the top coaches realistically won't come to Scotland. Most coaches/ managers down south are out of our price range, you won't bring in someone who doesn't speak the language. The pool to pick from is pretty small considering.

10.) 01 Jun 2021 18:51:43
Royjac, we managed to get Rogers, sevco got Gerrard easily enough, admittedly he wasn’t a big name manager but he was world renowned player, so still a big catch for the spfl. I’d have to disagree that we only have a small pool, but like I said it’s about opinions.
Not sure but rebrov may speak english due to being at Tottenham for a couple of seasons . Personally only favre would have been out of our price range, even though he said he was interested .

11.) 01 Jun 2021 19:22:56
I'd much rather we spent a bit more on a top coach than wasting it on projects that won't make the grade at the club. What would Favre have cost? A million more a season than Howe or less? He'd only likely be here 3 seasons tops and I'd rather we lost a million a season off the transfer budget as a better coach will get more out of the players. Rodgers/ Lennon is a prime example of that.

12.) 01 Jun 2021 20:54:38
We got Rodgers because he didn't have a job and he is a fan of the club, his stock was fairly low as he blew the league from a winning position and was dismal in Europe. Gerrard was an under 23 coach with no top level experience, christ we are supposedly about to bring in a guy that has won the league in his homeland and abroad. Has won an international trophy and qualified for two world cups on the bounce with all of his teams playing excellent football and people are saying he doesn't qualify to manage for us.
Favre will never come to Scotland and the guy from Sparta will end up at some German or Italian team.

Come on you have to be realistic guys.



25 May 2021 13:42:52
Joey Dawson passes a medical to sign for us according to reports?


1.) 25 May 2021 14:46:31
17yr old from Lincoln. Another project same rubbish just a different day.

2.) 25 May 2021 15:01:09
It's like Celtic have learned nothing. How many young top talent have Celtic signed and non get a chance. Give them a freekin chance. before we can judge them they are off and do gd things. This is one of the things the new manager has to change. Also who sanctioned this with a new manager coming in.

3.) 25 May 2021 15:40:59
Hopefully Howe Andy.

4.) 25 May 2021 15:43:18
Andy, the new regime may be all about giving youngsters a chance. Howe is renowned for it, it's Lennon who wouldn't try and bring them in. HH.

5.) 25 May 2021 15:54:44

What manager gave youth a chance? There is always the odd yin but the club support demands hinder youth.

6.) 25 May 2021 16:47:24
I see celtic are going to Wales for pre season training camp 5 of July.

7.) 25 May 2021 16:55:10
I can't see many youth players breaking through, until we regain some stability, consistency and confidence. Hopefully once we have a settled, quality side, we can then introduce the cream of the crop?

8.) 25 May 2021 17:15:54
We have Scott Robertson at Gillingham, they're raving about the young centre midfielder. Howe will play youngsters if they look the part. We need loads of signings as there's loads going out.

9.) 25 May 2021 17:50:44
Fair comment Auf. Yes our fans do demand the ready made player and it does appear that only the occasional young player gets a chance. Youth development at Celtic is partly hindered by the club's ability to go out and buy someone with a bit of credibility and that seems to have taken the focus off the young lads.
I think it's down to a lack of club focus and individual ability within the club to spot good talent in the youth ranks when the 'easy' option is to go out and buy a player from elsewhere, many of whom have also been a disaster. HH.

10.) 25 May 2021 19:47:07
About 6 or 7 of our talented youngsters have recently left as there was no pathway to first team under the last regime, the proof is in the pudding.

11.) 25 May 2021 20:29:03
Hope you are right @mally @bestybhoy. I would love this.
We seem to sign all the best up and coming young players then nothing.

12.) 25 May 2021 20:31:26
What concerns me is the level of research we do on players we sign. I'm referring to their attitude, their hunger, their desire etc.
Take Shved as just one example. He's clearly a guy who has all the ability in the world but seems to have a poor attitude as was called out by the Mechelen manager when he went there on loan. That attitude didn't suddenly happen at Celtic, it must have been there before and we didn't see it, and it was probably the reason he didn't make it at his previous clubs.
The Alex Ferguson approach of sussing out a player's background (family history etc. ) rarely failed him so I don't understand why we don't use it or something similar. HH.

13.) 25 May 2021 22:55:32
Gillingham was raving about Robertson but he went back out to Doncaster and don't think he's barely kicked a ball for them.

14.) 25 May 2021 23:51:37
I think club have potentially signed a gem in Dawson. His dad and 2 uncles have played at least championship level with Hull City (Dad) , Tottenham (uncle) and Nottingham Forres (uncle) .

Suggests to me he will have right attitude to develop and progress into first team coming from his background.

Personally I think Dawson and Shaw have been identified by Howe as I thought from day 1 he would be working behind scenes identifying players and building backroom team. I'm probably wrong though lol.

15.) 26 May 2021 09:45:34
Robertson should have been playing in our midfield last year, instead of Brown, when they are good enough, they should be playing in the first team, otherwise, there is a danger of their development being stifled.

16.) 26 May 2021 10:22:54
Would be a brave manager to drop Broony for a reserve player, when we were going for 10. Broony never got dropped for Soro even when there was nothing to play for.

17.) 26 May 2021 18:32:08
I don't see the point in us loaning him out to Doncaster if he's not going to be playing. He was one of the players I'd have liked to see get a run in the team when the league was mathematically over.



11 May 2021 13:47:32
Creation cb allegedly off to Italy, more dithering.


1.) 11 May 2021 14:08:30
Mally, not sure if you've seen it on 67 Hail Hail, they put up 11 players who are out of contract in the next few weeks - there's a few good players on there.

I'd like us to look at bringing in 4 or 5, one's with proven abilty at a high level and pay them well as we're saving on transfer fees.

Around them play younger UK based players inc our own Turnbull and CalMac with other Scottish boys in the squad with the view to playing our stronger youth players for the League Cup to bring them through in the next year or two.

2.) 11 May 2021 14:24:56
Any decent names on there ped.

3.) 11 May 2021 14:38:36
Thomas Vaclik GK, Jetro Williams LB, Aurelian Buta RB, Nick Powell MF, a boy called Buska who plays upfront for Williams Krakow.

4.) 11 May 2021 16:00:26
Let's hope our recruitment dpt get it right this time.

5.) 11 May 2021 16:18:26
Apologies Mally, I've just noticed the 'predictive' text!
That should be Wisla Krakow.

6.) 11 May 2021 16:22:16
How is it dithering?

7.) 11 May 2021 18:16:37
Was we even genuinely interested or was it another case of using Celtics name to get the players name out there.

8.) 11 May 2021 19:23:30
Well hadjuk have said we bid and it's not enough, that's what they said, if true and I don't know, but if it is its more feckin about low balling.

9.) 11 May 2021 21:28:53
Isn't this regurgitated news from weeks ago!

10.) 12 May 2021 07:51:20
Don't think it's as simple as Celtic being involved. The player and his agent. Will do what is best for them (money) . When clubs from the big league's get involved its hard to compete finically. It was a Italian journalist that said Celtic had bid, indicating Torino were always in the running.

12 Jun 2021 16:31:18
Hope lawell has kept tabs on Davies as there no chance he'll get near the Liverpool bench even, as they've signed the boy from leipzig as well as getting there injured boys back.


1.) 12 Jun 2021 17:06:01
Mally, by the time the season starts he won't have played a game for nearly 8 months.
We can do better. HH.

2.) 12 Jun 2021 17:17:26
We have had more than our fair share of sick-note centre halves with the likes of Jullien and Simunovic and with Ajer looking to leave we need a trio of real solid reliable stoppers to compete.

3.) 12 Jun 2021 17:45:45
Would take Davies in a heartbeat. He would be 100% improvement on pretty boy Ajer who was more concerned about his hair than he was about conceding goals. He certainly will not be a miss.

Hail Hail 🍀🍀🍀.

4.) 13 Jun 2021 10:40:59
Sorry, that’s absolute rubbish. Ajer was one of our better players last season and the only defender willing to take the ball and run at the opposition, and they hate that.

5.) 13 Jun 2021 14:22:15
Really, Did you watch the last game at Ibrox when he ducked at the Morelos goal. That sums him up, he is SUPPOSED to be a defender not running at the opposition.
He will really get exposed in the Premier League, the likes of Kane, Salah, Foden and Sterling will think that all their birthdays will have come at once when they play against Ajer.

Hail Hail



11 Jun 2021 19:10:09
Big ange getting a glowing seal of approval from the maestro, who's been out there for 11 years, so Al go with his take over the naysayers.


1.) 11 Jun 2021 19:42:34
Mally, plenty of love and respect for our Paul - a good endorsement from a Celtic Legend.

2.) 11 Jun 2021 20:18:03
If the best Celtic midfielder I’ve seen in my lifetime says he’s good enough he’s good enough. ☘️.

3.) 12 Jun 2021 15:35:44
We’ve still got the lad from Sheffield to come in next season as well Shaw but we need to move fast but don’t want panic buys bit of a understatement at this time of the campaign ahead but i also don’t want loan players in we should be a team of loaning players out we all know how the last loans we got in.

4.) 12 Jun 2021 16:18:07

03 Jun 2021 13:46:16
25 days till pre season, marvellous prep for next season. totally farcical situation.


1.) 03 Jun 2021 14:04:07
15 a ment apologies, and the new guy won't be processed for 2 weeks according to eufa🤣.

2.) 03 Jun 2021 14:43:17
Or even be allowed to for 21 days. Then 10 in quarantine. Then sees how pathetic the board are and chucks it.

3.) 04 Jun 2021 13:26:10
As long as he's here in time to take charge at the start of pre season it makes no difference as he won't get a look at the team (non euro participants) until then. The delay on the Dof is the bigger concern for me.

Well if true and these rumours are always a bit sketchy for me. and if the club hierarchy knew why keep them, is it a coincidence most were rotten all season, no idea but surely professional pride and dreams of a big move would drive them o, or maybe the rumours are mince and they had a bad season.

The only reason sevconians and the media were doing cartwheels when slippy signed was due to his playing career, nothing to do with his ability to manage as borne out by a paltry one trophy out of 9 domestically, this guy has a really impressive cv, some on here poo poo pooing it due to where he's managed well some could say that about our league. he's managed at a wc and won Australia's only ever trophy, when was the last time Scotland or England won anything.
Give him a chance his opening presser was very impressive speaks well and has good ideas.
