One year contract extension for Sinky. Hope he celebrates it with a brace at the sheep on Saturday.

Delighted to hear this. Yes, he's never scaled the heady heights of his first season, but Sinky's always good for a goal and he gets us, and knows what's required.

2.) 02 May 2019 12:57:29
Another back heel against the sheep will do.

3.) 02 May 2019 14:22:30
I think it's an extension to sell him in the summer to get some money back.

4.) 02 May 2019 17:23:00
Does that mean he's contracted for the next 2 seasons? I thought he signed a 4yr deal when he joined.

5.) 03 May 2019 00:08:17
Agree Tony. Apparently Middlesborough are sniffing about. Wouldn't be surprised if Rodgers took him to Leicester as well.

6.) 03 May 2019 09:54:47
Don't think Rodgers will be taking him. He will be shopping in a much higher market I would think.

7.) 03 May 2019 13:42:36
I think Rodgers will talk about shopping in Saville Row, he will also drop into the second -hand or used shops, just like he did at Celtic . He was so pleased with his shopping, in the bargain basin in January 2018, he went public on National TV to praise himself and thank the Celtic Board .
However, Brendan's shopping spree that January was a complete disaster . I just hope Leicestr allows Brendan free rein to buy players this summer and the chances will be that Leicester will be looking for a manager who can do a job, rather than BR who talks a good game.

8.) 03 May 2019 18:59:51
Wow here we go again so much negativity around what I think is a great piece of business. Jesus guys we take up a one year extension on a guy who in my opinion has performed when ask to and has consistently proven the doubters wrong and his stats don't lie. Please just be pleased for once instead of putting a negative spin on everything the club do.

Hail, Hail we are the celtic family

The Happy Turnkey.

{Ed007's Note - Now there's a stranger! Nice to hear from you mate 👍

Thanks Ed im ok hope you are well too. Had a lot of major family stuff going on over last few months but i've been on when I can.

{Ed007's Note - I'm good, just dodging (hopping) along. Hopefully everything's OK with you now and everyone's well.}

Is there any news on KT?
Been bombarded all week with the Andy Murray hip injury situation and I really hope KT doesn't have a similar problem now or in the future.

Watching the highlights again this morning and how good does it make you feel to see the team in this form? Great performances all over the pitch and superb goals.
There were a few candidates for MOM, but I was delighted in particular for Izzaguire, who linked up well so with Sinclair and had a great game.
Obviously he's keeping KT's place warm, but it's a shame we can't utilize his talent more often?

Hayes and Gamboa were recalled at Fir Park and took time to settle, but Izzy looked like he'd never been away. Was thinking maybe we could ask KT to do a 'Danny McGrain' and we could see both in the same team, but I can't see it.

Once a Bhoy

1.) 10 Dec 2018 11:03:47
Totally agree, Izzy was outstanding and was one of the best performers on Saturday.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 12:06:27
I'm sure we'll see more of Izzy over Christmas would like Tierney rested before Sevco game so he's firing. He needs the odd game off so he doesn't burn out and Izzy is more than capable domestically.



18 Feb 2018 13:21:46
Any news on Armstrong, Roberts and Griffiths? It's been a long, long time since we saw wee Paddy in particular and the three of them have missed a lot of football this season and must be bursting to get involved in the run-in.

Started brilliantly today, playing some brilliant keep-ball, neat confident inter-passing and scoring a very nice early goal.
Unfortunately, regardless of total dominance, the Bhoys couldn't add to this between their very tight marking, niggly tackles and another of those God-awful plastic, unpredictable pitches.
I must have counted at least half a dozen players suffering one type of injury or another during the game and at present that is possibly our biggest threat domestically - big squad or not.
To win both away games either side of that 'bloody break' is excellent and we will need to be at our best in the coming weeks looking at the'random' fixture list - especially after EL games.

Once a Bhoy

Take the 3pts and move on.

2.) 14 Sep 2019 15:30:44
How many times did the ball bounce at a weird angle? Honestly there is no need for a plastic pitch in Scotland.

3.) 14 Sep 2019 15:22:13
It's a wonder TV wants to show these one sided, 11 men behind the ball games on an awful surface in a pathetic excuse of a football stadium! Absoulte embarrassment advert for Scottish football. Got the 3 points and we move on thankfully👍.

4.) 14 Sep 2019 19:23:23
Surely the sfa should get together with the clubs now and make a rule that it’s got to be on grass. Even for some of the smaller clubs, take a percentage out of advertising and clubs who qualify and earn money from Europe to sustain some of these pitches. These clubs I presume are battling with league two money in England or below yet none of them have plastic pitches.
The product on show with these pitches and possible injuries, slow football makes for a terrible product to sell to tv companies and potential signings for teams. Who would want to come and play on pitches like that.

5.) 14 Sep 2019 21:47:22
Agreed malkybhoy
Hamilton total embarasament there home game on there tuff never watered the plastic grass.
Some great play for the lads and another record broken well done Lenny.

6.) 14 Sep 2019 23:20:41
Though I ain't a big hater of the fake grass as a lot of fans, if a club can afford a grass park then they have no place in our top division.

7.) 15 Sep 2019 06:11:55
If we want to sell our product we should not be allowing these surfaces in our top division. Also Stadiums should have proper stands all around the pitch jeez😂😂😂.

8.) 15 Sep 2019 08:13:50
My bhoy played at a good level and played on that regularly and hated it how do youbyhink guys on 30k feel it should be banned in our top league it's an embareassmentb.



31 Aug 2019 15:47:35
After the Turnbull transfer fell though I was hoping we would try for a similar type before the window closed. I know it's possible we will go back in for him in January, but has anyone heard of any 'solid' moves to bolster the midfield before then, rather than wait 4 months?

Once a Bhoy

1.) 31 Aug 2019 16:23:27
Maybe we are waiting to go back in for him on Monday night.

2.) 31 Aug 2019 17:13:22
Turnbull is dug meat and would be another Scott Allen or Benyu👎.

3.) 31 Aug 2019 17:45:28
Nonsense Malky. The lad is a decent prospect. Whether he will be the same after his injury is debatable though.

4.) 31 Aug 2019 17:49:51
OAB I don't think they expected ntcham to be hanging around.

5.) 31 Aug 2019 19:35:14
Fair point Kev; although there was a rumour today he could still be off? Best to wait and see what Tuesday morning brings us for the challenges ahead and hopefully plenty of cover in every position?

6.) 01 Sep 2019 08:30:00
Turnbull is a player and I hope he gets fit and we go back for him.



31 Aug 2019 11:45:24
We seem to have a very close link with Southampton regarding transfers (both ways) . Is there any special reason for this - or is it we find some other clubs too difficult to deal with and do business with?

Once a Bhoy

1.) 31 Aug 2019 12:21:33
It would be good if we got Armstrong also.



30 Aug 2019 10:14:23
For more mature supporters like me, who have to watch their blood pressure, or young-yins with anger issues, steer clear of SLY Sports.
They are so far up Slippy's arse they could brush his teeth.
While the constant wheeling out of 'ex-currents' spouting their garbage + 'O. F. ' myth is pathetic.
Even the Celtic page on their website is infested with Sevco snippets, articles and updates. BSKYB = Biased SLY Broadcasting.
Wife got me it as a gift so the subscription is in her name; think she never forgave me for the non - stick pans set last Christmas?

I know the hun-media have been having a field day with their fake news and mischief making rumours, but we do encourage it with our dithering/ hesitation EVERY time.
I also realize how hard it is to attract real quality here - especially when we fritter away CL qualification, but I don't accept for a minute, that there are no decent players out and available in the positions we crave. Every other big club seems to do their business quickly and competently;
So, whether it's Lawell's reluctance to pay or the incompetence of our scouting and recruitment to identify players, it's a disgrace that we find ourselves scrambling about in the closing days looking desperate.

Once a Bhoy

1.) 27 Aug 2019 13:37:43
It's Lawwell/ those above him that determine the funds for me. There are plenty of LBs out there, and RBs, that would improve us, we could afford, and would want to come. There'll be a good few million quid made this summer for those at the big table.

That's a shame as I think he would have learned a lot more going down south or abroad?

Lawell has no need to pull a Rabbit out the hat now - after yesterday when he saw his three main buys contributing brilliantly in the game.
I would have loved big Vic on loan to toughen up the midfield and help Broony; however, if Ntcham is staying? He may not see the need to spend more of the KT cash - on top of all the other business.
Forster, Connell, El Hamed, Jullien, Boli, Afolabi, Elyounnoussi, Bauer and now Taylor is almost an entire team brought in, so I suppose we should not be greedy and we still have Shved as well.

Can't believe he's playing into their hands again with such a weak left side. MJ is a big risk, whereas Hayes would have given more much-needed protection to Boli.
The attacking players have been exceptional lately, but they need the ball to do their stuff and I worry about winning possession in an outnumbered/ out-muscled midfield?
Although it's not a must-win, there will be enormous pressure on the manager if we lose; so the players have to ALL be on top form.

Shame Calvin Miller wasn't left to develop into the direct forward he was meant to be - instead of trying to convert him into a left-back. His career at Celtic stalled and faded after that; good luck to him.

Possibly the best squad for six or seven years, with very few 'duds' and rejects, picking up wages for hee-haw.
Looking forward to seeing the players you mentioned - plus Shved and maybe even young O'Connor from Man Utd, maybe in the Scottish Cup?
Certainly is looking good at the moment, with so much competition for places; playing very well and scoring plenty.

It's only common sense to utilize the squad in domestic cup ties; but I don't see such sweeping changes as that line-up.
However, I do see Gordon, Bauer, Taylor, Hayes, Rogic, Elyannoussi and Bayo possibly starting with a mix of stars and squad on the bench.

His injury came when he was right at the top of his game and he was playing superbly; so it's possible he's still not 100%?
I was more concerned at us conceding yet another penalty (and by Broony again) , as it's happening far too often - even though big FF is the right man for the job to face them ha ha.

The Cluj game will be a chance for NL to pit his wits against the experienced and wily Petrescu for a third time this season and we are yet to beat them; so a win is vitally important and maybe conclusive.

Always thought Ajer had it all in his locker and could play practically anywhere; however, he was caught out more than once last night and had trouble with a big physical opponent.
Still would be one of the first names on the team-sheet though.
