Ed, do you know anything about the player that signed today?He got the number 16 jersey, he's got a funny name ( Ber Something ).

Jungle Bhoy Jungle Bhoy

{Ed007's Note - Jo Inge Berget it is JB. He's a 23 yr old Norwegian striker who's down at Cardiff just now. Ole Gunnar Solskaer signed him in January from his previous club Molde, he played ONE game for Cardiff. Has he actually signed?}

Just read on the Celtic website they are arranging a friendly with Villarreal for charity. A quote for Peter Lawwell says: "Celtic is delighted to have such a magnificent support worldwide and we have enjoyed a fantastic relationship with Villarreal and Celtic Submari CSC (Celtic Villarreal fan group) over the years. Does this also mean the Aquino deal could be closer/revived?

I've read reports that Southampton are meant to be coming in for both FF and VVD.
Seems they have cash to burn after the sale of Lovren and Chambers.
You heard anything about this Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Southampton are interested in both of them, I think it's almost certain Forster will end up there, it's between him and David Marshall but with England GK coach Dave Watson there Forster looks more likely. How better to help break into the England team for France 2016 than working with the England coach every day.
It's the same with van Dijk, what better way to raise his profile and help his international chances than playing for a Dutch manager in the EPL. Louis van Gaal told van Dijk before the World Cup he was one for the future so perhaps there is an outside chance of Utd bidding, Moyes was interested and van Gaal knows all about him. He's been watched by nearly every EPL team last season and this summer and Spurs are keen on him as well. I think the van Dijk situation is harder to call, if we get CL football he might fancy working under Deila to see how things go.}

Forster, certainty to go. Main reason we got Gordon- in keeping with cheap option policies in place.

Van Dijk, not so sure this season. I reckon he knows big club in premiership are watching him and perhaps will hold off a season to see if Van Gaal will make a move for him and take him to man utd.

Ed do u think he has just not show. Enough to RD? And do u think we are having a clear out? There are so many players I would sell befor what!

{Ed007's Note - I'm surprised by the move, Watt is a better player than both Stokes and Griffiths but if RD has seen enough and is happy to let him go then so be it but I'm even more surprised Watt has chose to return to Lierse after what happened there. I just hope the decision wasn't influenced by others bending RD's ear.}

Why are we selling him? He needs to be given a chance a proper chance. He is a great talent better than most of the options we already have. Not happy with this what so ever.

We should sell pukki. he's been a complete flop. even against reykjavik he played bad. if he would always score 2 goals that would be fine then but he'll have big problems when the better teams come. all schalke fans I know wanted him to leave at the time we bought him. i'm happy with the squad, I just want a top class striker we can rely on!

Maybe the decision was taken out of RD's hands due to past indiscretions and lack of discipline - whatever the case, it is a big disappointment as he was a class act.
It just adds to the frustration of our whole transfer strategy when we should be adding quality and building a better squad - not losing our brightest talent.
Maybe if he goes we could go for Johnny Russell as a like for like replacement?

I think he has major promise but maybe he's not giving RD what he's looking for? I would loan him In the spl for a year and see what he does before making any decisions like this what about a poll ed if us the fans want him to stay or go.

It would appear that tony watt does indeed have an attitude problem.from what we hear, he was quite rude to Danny mcgrain and Neil lennon, and took his attitude to Belgium which we have all read about.now it would appear Ronny Deila has seen enough to sanction his move away from the club.i said in a post a few weeks ago that he had been given an opportunity to resurrect his career at celtic, but as the previous poster said you have blown it, good riddance.killy.

I don't think its a good idea to get rid of anyone untill new faces arrive. I personally don't know the facts of Tony Watts discipline issues at celtic, but one thing I do know is the set up they have in belgium at the moment is up there with the best in europe. The experience would of only of enhanced his game. Just got a gut feeling sanctioning transfer will come back to haunt us.

Ed, do you know if celtic have any links with belgium clubs? Personally I think if we did it would be a fantastic opportunity to develop youth farming them out on loan

{Ed007's Note - We did have a partnership with Oostende but I'm not sure if that's still active.}

Why we selling our best striker for peanuts? because apparently he's got the devils attitude! Boy gets bad press for nowt. Lived the dream scoring THAT goal, then Lennon didn't use for him weeks and when he did he was thrown on the wing! He took the huff to this and so what? The boys an out and out striker. Every time he's on the ball he looks quick, strong and direct something we lack very much! Far too many sideway passers#boring#easyoption. Can't believe we're sitting back and let such a talent walk away. And just throwing this in there young boy chambers who just signed for arsenal made like 24 senior appearances went for £16m. We're going to sell our biggest assets for under £10m each. Time to start acting like the huge club we are!

I'm not being funny but every teenager early 20's think they know it all! But to sell is a big mistake loaning him for another year or two yes but it's such a waste of potential! We all don't know exactly what's went on behind the scenes and yes we have too many similar strikers but I just don't see selling as a good option!
Thanks for the poll ed.

Might be backward thinking but would we get better on a free? A lot of us are open to some of the current squad getting a chance under the new system and I think Sammy is better than some of those guys. don't think it will happen. NL wanted to keep him as far as I could see. I don't see PL making a U turn.

I think it's absolutely terrible the way yous go on about him he was a great servant for the club and yous have very short memories he has had some amazing displays in Europe and domestic we have had a lot worse than sammy at the club that's for sure I for one would bring him back to the club. He loved his time there and took a massive wage cut to come from city so do us a favour and lay off the big man.

Sam maybe if I had a short memory I wouldn't despise this guy as much as a player, I was scarred a long time ago by season upon season of abysmal performances from him, If you think that playing 2 or 3 good games a season is acceptable well there's no hope for us.

Am sure he played more than 2 or even 3 good games for us. And for having no hope for us havint we just won the spl 3 seasons in a row and qualified for the champions league too am sure sammy played his part in that. Just think to give a ex player such a hard time is wrong bet yous were all singing his name after the old firm game when he was unplayable that day not to mention the winner against spartak Moscow away, if am not wrong think that was a defining game in our qualification to the last 16 yeah thought so hope the big man signs and makes a lot of people eat there words.

He's worth more than £10m. Southampton are a joke club where every prem league club taking there players. If they can sell a 19 year old u21 player for £16m to arsenal then Virgil is in that price bracket.

Said back in May Newcastle, Southampton and West Ham had all made it clear to Forster that they may move for him this summer.

Celtic recieved a bid from Forster today from Southampton. NUFC have been in touch though and he's going to hold out until Krul is sold.

Forsters preference would be to move to a club near London. He's not forcing a move but obviously has ambition to play in the premier league now.

This hasn't really come as a big surprise. Foster has been angling for a move for a while and it would appear the Club have been patiently waiting on a suitable offer after the WC.

If he goes to Southampton then I think it is a great suggestion to get Boruc back as part of the deal. let's be honest Gordon isn't the answer. Oscar Pistorius has better knees and his arms have been been smashed more times than Katy Prices' barn doors.

Hopefully we don't continue with this downsizing exercise for much longer

Good, he does my head in with his attitude. He's got talent, but his all round attitude/demeanour is appalling! And when I say he's got talent, I mean some talent, I don't mind a bit of arrogance, especially if you can back it up with top performances in huge games, but this guy is a complete chancer. His record in Europe takes a bit of beating, I don't think he's scored against the other mob either. Look at Hooper he had something like 10 goals in 13 games against them. Hopefully stokes takes a few with him, because there are a good few who are no-where near as good as they think they are. We have no real leaders in this squad either, no leaders of men, that would take players by the throat and say get a grip of yourself, and show a bit of respect. This team badly needs an Aitken/McGrain type, - guys like Brown/Mulgrew etc, although they are senior players, they spend too much time fannying about/playing pranks for me. This just gives guys like stokes/Griffiths/Watt etc to behave like spoiled children. I am so underwhelmed with the current team it's driving me to distraction!

If I was boss it's what I would do. Whatever affinity he has with the club, it should not stand in the way of progression, or blur peoples perceptions of the player.

I have and still actively think that stokes needs replaced for a cl level push. but when he has been paired with a footballer up front he has ticked over domestically. scored some really classy goals that would of made noise in the epl. I don't hold him solely as a celtic man, or on a pedestal because of that or any way that would influence that type of judgement. I don't think many do now. he isn't that versatile(and never showed up enough as a leader of the line maybe) and that may be his short fall in Ronnys plans. I always want new signings to push out any regulars if needed to improve the team. is Ant the cf we all want honestly?
im not sure what his current contract is or his rep with rd but a more direct passing style of play might help?. trying to be diplomatic lads(not easy at all)
. it can be looked at as me being whinging git but for us to even disscuss AS departure as a stumbling block then we won't move forward.

Aquino supposedly in Glasgow? I expect this lad to compete with Commons, Griffiths and Boerrigter for the wide positions. Griffiths and Commons though are better down the middle, so hopefully we'll BUY another wide man yet. Fridjonsson going out on loan, I'd punt Stokes and send Balde out on loan too, bring in another Striker ahead of Griffiths and Pukki and possibly keep Watt too. Then there's just the case of a CDM, CB and LB too.

Celtic are supposedly leading the race for 21 yr old Ostersunds' striker Modou Barrow, he was recommended to the club by ex-Accies manager Billy Reid who's their current Asst Mgr.

Barrow had a £600k bid from Bolton rejected for him (valued at £1.5m by Ostersunds) after spending last week on trial at Burnden Way.

He's also being scouted by Hull, QPR, Swansea and Everton!

Got told today that the possibility of the Atsu signing is not going to happen so suppose not really a suprise.

Good strong stating line up with options on the bench. I am glad RD sees the potential in the youth, time for them to shine in this season. I am hoping for a rugby score tonight (no murrayfield pun intended!)
From pre season games I seen I enjoyed RD free flowing, starting from the back attacking methods, no more goalkeepers humping it up the park. I think this is a refreshing system to the past few years of same old same old under NL. I do not want to mar his successes but if he chopped and changed the line up he could have developed the youth academy so much better. Here's to this season bhoys n ghirls. 4 in a row n that!

It's really a Lennon team with McGregor in instead of Henderson or Kayal. I am glad he hasn't changed personnel too quickly and I expect only small changes in style of play over the next few games . Ronnie's new personnel and new tactics will be all revealed as the season progresses .

We've made an approach for Harry Maguire of Sheffield, few clubs are interested also, so that's a Maguire and Atsu, think we can expect a few signings now, no doubt there will be others also

I'd be delighted if we moved for Maguire! Exciting young CB, very consistent for Sheff Utd over the past few seasons.

I doubt if we sign either., these rumours are going around too long to have any substance, normally we don't hear anything from Celtic who usually keep interests private and confidential.

Any idea if the rumoured interest in Atsu is true Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Yes it's true. CFC have contacted Michael Emenalo to register their interest.}

He was decent at the world cup, final ball let him down a few times. Hopefully he'd fancy a crack at the Champions League, more importantly, hopefully Chelsea want him to play in the Champions League rather than prefer to loan him to another Premier League team
