Ali McCann has signed for Preston for just over a million pounds, strange we never went in for him for that sort of fee .


1.) 31 Aug 2021 23:53:07
Given the abuse NL got I doubt we will ever be attractive to high profile NI players.



12 Aug 2021 22:14:14
Sky are reporting we had couto from Man City up tonight as a guest . Young Brazillian right back.


1.) 12 Aug 2021 22:28:54
Loan deal, hope this isn't our ralston back up.

2.) 12 Aug 2021 22:39:13
Reports are suggesting that Couto could cost £2.5 million in a season loan fee.

3.) 12 Aug 2021 22:40:57
I’d like the Croatian player but app he was a success last season on loan for his Spanish club. Have to trust the managers choices I suppose.

4.) 13 Aug 2021 07:27:44
Had a look at couto he looks great on video but so does everyone 🤣 but he has bags of ability but can he defend, we need to trust ange if he's done his homework personally I'd like the croat.

5.) 13 Aug 2021 07:53:37
If Yan Couto loan fee is 2.5million why don't we just buy a RB. We should have another look at Israel for a rb.

6.) 13 Aug 2021 08:58:52
If that loan fee is true then for me wee add a million to that and go get the Croatian lad fae legia Warsaw. Spending £2.5 million on a loan RB makes absolutely no sense.

7.) 13 Aug 2021 09:08:54
Agree Garryc1977, I'd rather buy a Croatian International with his experience, than blow 2.5M on a loan deal for a 19yr old Brazilian 'wonderkid'

8.) 13 Aug 2021 10:05:17
really want the lad juranovic over couto. no point of taking another clubs player to develop him when he can have a ready made international player. 2.5 million quoted for him too. just get it done celtic.

9.) 13 Aug 2021 10:21:03
I agree about buying our own player as a loan just postpones the problem. In the meantime, Ralston has upped his game and although we need more quality additions, it gives us time to find the right permanent players for the right positions.

10.) 13 Aug 2021 12:09:33
I would have to say I couldn't imagine Ralston being a player to be honest The past 4 or 5 games has made me eat my words. What a difference from last year and in such a short time under Ange now we are looking for a back up for Ralston rather than a replacement but we definitely need a backup in this window for him.

11.) 13 Aug 2021 13:04:51
I think we're looking for better than Tony and that's no disrespect to the boy, whoever comes in they have to be better and ange has said that himself.

12.) 13 Aug 2021 13:14:33
Remember Ralston only signed a year extension so he is free to sign a pre contract in Jan maybe that has got him to get his finger out but I agree what a huge difference in the bhoy.

13.) 13 Aug 2021 13:34:05
Would rather we got in Juranovic as he fixes our problem rather than a loan with no buy option. Juranovic looked solid from what I seen of him at the Euros too.

14.) 13 Aug 2021 15:39:21
Don't feel convinced by this if I'm honest, might be a good young player but it's not what we need at the moment. We need defenders in with a decent level of experience who can handle expectation especially against better teams in Europe.
The thing that worries me with the targets that have been mentioned are that they all seem to be on the small stature side, this young boy, the creation and buta, none of them are above 5 ft 8.
This might week well in an attacking sense but I've always had the concept that defenders are there to defend first and attack second. Even starfelt is only 6ft 1 which isn't the biggest for a centre half and this Japanese boy we've been linked with is the same.
We all know how bad we were with set pieces last season but if we play against better teams and deal with crossed balls into the box it doesn't bode well if they're that small trying to defend them.

15.) 13 Aug 2021 18:34:57
Are we linked to any left backs to replace Taylor?
Ive said before and its all about opinions but we need stronger defensively and more of a threat in attack.

16.) 13 Aug 2021 19:08:23
Mally do your homework mate. Be more than happy with the young 🇧🇷 player- he is quality hence numerous clubs after him.



25 Jun 2021 06:55:44
Has anyone else heard any more info on the supposed bid for berg. It was rumoured last week a Scottish club had bid for him but since then it’s gone quiet, as all transfer stores have . There is still a rumour sevco was the ones that bid for him as well.


1.) 25 Jun 2021 10:44:23
They are always quicker in transfers, that was my worry when I read a club from here had bid. Our form in the time we take woukd make it more likely to be them. Just hoping Dom isn't like Lawell in that regard, or we will go into the euro games with the same squad. He did talk about modernising, I'm. hooing that includes getting real about transfers and the need to get the finger out. Abandoning Lawells cheap punt and hope they turn into Messi woukd be great too.



17 Jun 2021 20:56:35
Leeds reportedly sniffing around Leo hjelde, who was on loan at Ross county last season. By all accounts he has the potential to be a great player, hopefully ange has a chat with him and tells him he’s going to get a chance with us. Lately we have lost quite a few young players to big sides so they must see something in them. We need to stop this trend especially as we can’t really afford to buy top level young players.


1.) 17 Jun 2021 21:53:33
He'll be the next young player we lose going by the last year.

2.) 17 Jun 2021 22:24:07
We are in such a state these days; unable to attract a big-nam manager, hold on to our better players and many of our 'projects and prospects' looking elsewhere to further their careers. It has never been so apparently obvious that we need to repair and boost our reputation and traditions or things will get much worse.

3.) 19 Jun 2021 09:35:43
If young Leo is half as good as people say, we have to tell Leeds to bolt.



05 Jun 2021 11:43:31
Some decent free contracts from the prem been released. King on a free, poss ayew from Swansea ( I know they aren’t in the prem) and if dreams could be achieved, Fernandinho, even at 35 would be class if we could get him to drop 150 grand in wages 😂.


1.) 05 Jun 2021 13:11:27
Ayew on £80k p/ W. Was mentioned during play off.

2.) 05 Jun 2021 14:04:30
Really Hugo? For that I’d def say no then. Just goes to show the gulf in wages between us and some championship sides .

3.) 05 Jun 2021 14:38:00
You wouldn't want Ayew. Rotten.

Does anyone know when the tickets for the semifinal will be on sale? I’m not on the ticket scheme so will have to wait for general sale .


1.) 22 Oct 2021 18:45:37
I can’t see any ticket information for the Semi Final in 4 weeks time.
Celtic will get about 40,000 tickets so I wouldn’t be worried about not getting a ticket.
The process will be the 20,000 plus who’re on the home ticket scheme first.
Then it will be the fans who were both at the Hearts and Raith Rovers games.
Next in line will be fans who attended only one of those matches.
It will take time Quinn but they will eventually get to anyone else who doesn’t fall into the requirements above.
You might have to wait into the last week before the match before getting a ticket.

2.) 22 Oct 2021 21:50:10
Thanks buzz.



03 Oct 2021 13:27:38
We are shocking again, 70 mins in without a change . All the defence look slack. Stroll around like world beaters but couldn’t keep kids off the street .
No shots on target. No matter whatever defence is put out we can’t defend, not sure what they are coached .
I could be writing this last season under lennon .




27 Sep 2021 20:41:44
I know it’s been probably said before loads of times, but it’s depressing to think only a few seasons ago we had a team with dembele eddy Sinclair Armstrong tierney etc.
The obvious downsizing is alarming when you think of that, we could, if our board were proactive, and went the extra mile, have had a top quality team.


1.) 27 Sep 2021 20:57:32
Celtic went to Ibrox in 2018 and we had Roberts, Sinclair, Armstrong and Edouard on the bench.
Our attacking options from the bench on Sunday, was a single Celtic B squad member.

2.) 27 Sep 2021 21:10:49
its exactly what half of us on here were saying was a possibility during the window. we knew we needed more there was no doubts about it.

3.) 27 Sep 2021 21:35:58
The downsizing and downgrading may have been a factor in Dom McKay's very premature and unexpected departure? It's certainly not what he was describing at his inaugural manifesto for the new Celtic era?

4.) 28 Sep 2021 00:14:33
Downsizing and downgrading are the wrong words to use, the problem is the recruitment, when it's Moussa, Odsonne, Ajer, Armstrong, Kyoto, Sinclair, everything is lubblydubbly, but when it's Ajeti, Klimala, Barkas, etcs it's misery, recruitment is a gamble, no one wants to recruit duffers on purpose, it's not done on purpose, get rid of words like downsizing and downgrading, no-one signs duffers on purpose, we just need to get some one in who can spot potential talent, forget about signing experienced has-beens, sign experienced not over the hill -beens, sign up and coming talent, stay away from EPL big earners who can't get a game for the first team, but are vastly talented, and will rip it up in Scotland, so their agents say, give our own youth a chance, its madness not to.

5.) 28 Sep 2021 09:46:48
Good post. It like some on here actually we sign bad players on purpose
We have injuries to our our best players it happens to every team. Some teams can scrape by we won't mention them. But if it's our strikers and we have a striker who can't score playing every week that's not gd enough as the sitters we missed where shocking school boy standard. Rogic and Turnbull have no one except for kyogo who can stack and receive those killer runs.

6.) 28 Sep 2021 10:23:16
Andy are you saying that Celtic supporters want to sign bad players on purpose what a nonsense statement that is certainly the first I've heard that one.

7.) 28 Sep 2021 11:15:15
We regularly sell big and replace with much cheaper options and I don't need to list them as we all know it happens every season; so if that is not downgrading then what is? Downsizing referred to the wage bill not the personnel as I reckon we have a similar size squad but have lost some top earners from previous seasons?

8.) 28 Sep 2021 12:53:18
Liam Go and read my post again before you get back to me. I'm saying opposite of that.
We do not sign players who are bad intentionally.



21 Sep 2021 16:17:02
With the accounts announced today, was any bonus mentioned for lawell or does that sort of thing not come up? Be interesting if he gets the big bonus when we underachieved, but he would be due some golden handshake for supposedly retiring . Maybe someone more financially astute would know? Are desmonds and other board members payments ever disclosed or are they lumped into wages for the club inc playing staff .


1.) 21 Sep 2021 17:11:48
The accounts are as detailed as they normally are Quinn. There is a lot of reasons they will be doing that this year. By the looks of it they have just produced the bear minimum to satisfy the statutory requirement where as usually it’s a 40 page detailed presentation.



21 Sep 2021 06:48:03
I take it the stories / rumours floating around a couple of weeks ago regarding Ian bankier were unfortunately that . Just rumours . The board seem to be reluctant to change even though they look stale and outdated in their methods. There seems to be no real news in regarding a new dof anymore or a head of scouting clearly two areas that need to be addressed as they are vital to a club. Whatever went on with McKay it would seem that certain board members aren’t too keen on modernising as they seem happy at what we are doing .


1.) 21 Sep 2021 09:01:03
Ange was saying the other day that now the transfer window is out the way that the club were looking at the structure and that appointments would come, hopefully bankier goes as well.

2.) 21 Sep 2021 14:20:57
It's a situation that I hope changes very soon.

I think DD overall has done well for Celtic but a part of me feels that we require someone to come in and buy him out.

In doing so, they can gut the board and put in place individuals with the vision to modernise the club and put a structure in place that will see us through the next 10years +

I can always dream ?.

We have a few injuries but the bench shows we still need more quality in January . We are going to pick up injuries especially if ange wants to play high tempo all the time.
I like others on here wanted to see McCarthy, it’s frustrating how long it takes to get some players up to speed .

This is so frustrating and weird at the same time. Back to the old pals act, we had someone that seemed to want to modernise the club. After a slowish start he did seem to do well with the window and bring in Ange. Could it have anything to do with strachan coming in, after saying in the summer he wouldn’t be . This whole affair stinks.
The chairman saying the new stand in, is a real team player. Is that a reference that McKay wasn’t pulling in the direction the tight fisted board wanted him to .

Hopefully we get McCann as I feel if we don’t, the Sevconians will possibly in the winter window . They will need a replacement for Davis, we could do with his energy in there which gives us an option we don’t really have. He looked good for them in their euro games against decent opposition as well.

That was like watching lennons Celtic again, no belief, no threat . No one getting in the box. One shot on target . Very few of our players turned up again. Starfelt played well . Criminal to lose a free header to a centre back. We don’t seem to learn. 7 games without a win is shocking, and we need to change thy quickly. We are going into games like rangers agains Rodgers teams where they knew they were going to lose.

Fitnessguru, in my rough estimation we have spent about 19 million . With potentially eddy going for anything over 16 and ajer for 14 million we have more than covered the outlay. It is a big turn around of players but we all knew we needed that after losing probably 7-8 first team players last season. Would you not agree we look like we could do with another centre back? And if eddy and griff go we have kyogo ajeti and the new Greek lad. If kyogo gets clattered and is injured there isn’t many goals in there 🤷‍♂️That would be my take on it anyway.

Pedro, he obviously had a very good season last year and he seems to have made the step up to international games quite well. I’m sure he’d love the chance to come to us, and for the outlay, even a million he could be a very good buy. Rogic has been playing well, turnbull had in patches but we don’t really have a box to box midfielder at the minute .

Brium, I’m not slagging off ange here but to compare us to city is a bit of a stretch. The epl is a much more competitive league where there are rarely easy games. Our wage structure blasts everyone out of the league, although I’d presume the Sevconians are close . Even with the turnaround of players, with the wages we are paying and their experience, there wouldn’t be many who would say we would sit six, winning only a few games at home.
Europe is a different matter, as it seems we have a really tough group but the league results should undoubtedly be better .

Hugo, I said in a previous post that I also agreed with lambert. He looked absolutely raging at the team and club last night . You could see how much it meant to him and hurt him to see us like this . We could do with someone like him in our team now that’s for sure .
