So it looks like Armstrong is off to Southampton for 7m, pretty good business with a year left and January looming. Hope he does well as you could never fault his effort, but he ain't VVD or Victor.

A good steady player who will do well for the Saints.

Great piece of business by Lawell, what a job he’s done when it comes to getting money for players.

Hopefully we will see some incoming signings soon.

22 Jun 2018 21:01:05
Not sure if Dundee Utd get a cut? If so I heard it’s 20%.

22 Jun 2018 22:13:44
We seem to be Southampton's feeder club as that is the fourth player we have sold them in recent years.
Not complaining as we get decent cash and sell-on bonuses, but is it sheer coincidence that we supply them with so much talent?

22 Jun 2018 23:45:16
Even if Dundee have a wee cut we should have 5m+ to play with for defense.

22 Jun 2018 23:51:06
As far as I am aware he was not a Celtic fan if so I can't blame him for wanting to try something new good luck to him Good business from us also Even if some players see us as a stepping stone as long as we don't make a loss and he contributes to the team its a win win situation IMO.

23 Jun 2018 10:23:06
heard it was 4 mill with add ons.

23 Jun 2018 18:23:26
Maybe because they're not ignorant enough to ignore the Scottish game. A lot of English say anyone can look good in this league but there's been plenty that has came up here and found it hard but down well down south? And if you're going to raid any club up here then we are the one with all the talent.

22 Jun 2018 20:17:07
According to reports Celtic have agreed a £7m deal with Southampton for Stuart Armstrong and he is keen to go, he's been a good player for us over the last 3 years but if he wants to go then we should take the money and replace him with somebody better who wants to be here, all the best Stuart hope it works out for you 👍🏼.

Rumour is we were in talks with John Terry in London yesterday and Dembele is to sign a new . Watch and Wait!

Agree3 Disagree7

22 Jun 2018 09:07:11

22 Jun 2018 09:14:20
John Terry dear God why is Lawwell so scared to spend money on a decent defence.

22 Jun 2018 11:09:58
No chance he's by.

22 Jun 2018 13:20:21
I think he’d be good for a year, the others could learn from one of the best defenders to have played in the premier league.

22 Jun 2018 13:25:59
Sure he's straight😂😂😂.

22 Jun 2018 15:57:55
How is Lawwell scared to spend money? Have we not broke our transfer record with our First signing.
People are needing to stop believing everything they read on Twitter or the hun media.

22 Jun 2018 17:11:18
He said defence. Not that we haven’t spent money. Read the post and don’t jump in with what you thought he said, Peter. :)

22 Jun 2018 19:19:33
I know he said defence, Is it Lawwell that identifies the players?
He goes after the players that the Manager says he wants, Has anyone from the club actually confirmed who we are after?

People on here are just waiting on any media story to come out regarding what players we are supposed to be interested in just so they can then accuse the board of not wanting to spend money.

Maybe we should throw £3 million at a Brighton reserve player or £3 million at a Croatian defender who's team came 7th in there league in the last 3 seasons.
Would that make him happy, We would have spent money on the Defence then!

22 Jun 2018 19:30:27
What you on about. All he wants is defenders of quality bought. Lawell is the main man. Who should he have mentioned? We need to strengthen thevdefence, end of.
I’m sure we will, but ours are posted and people can have a view that’s different from you, you know.

I want him to buy defenders too. Don’t you? And not ones that can’t get a game for crap teams either. That’s what we need most, so, reacting to a post about a player whose past it made him react. I laughed. John Feckin Tery? Please. If that’s true he won’t be the only one pissed. But we won’t so everybody calm doon.

22 Jun 2018 20:16:17
My point is that people on here read crap on twitter, online forums or in the SMSM and jump about saying we won't spend money, it happens every transfer window and the board gets the blame.

I want quality brought but it doesn't have to cost millions.
and spending 3,4,5 or 6 million doesn't guarantee quality.
I know it's rare when it happens but we got Lustig on a free and Ajer for £650,000 who is a quality young defender.
On the other hand we spend between what £4 - 5million on Jozo. who is as a good defender but quality? NO. Also he's only played 52 games in 3 seasons, so would you say that he was worth the money spent? Also is he any better than Ajer? I would say No but you will probably say he is just because he cost more. and then we have Boyata £1.5 million for a good defender when he is on his game.
So maybe we should just throw £7,8 or £9 million at a player because according to people on here, that would guarantee quality.

23 Jun 2018 11:51:26
Tommy Burns son Jonathan was joking there that he was in his mates taxi in glasgow lol.

21 Jun 2018 20:59:02
Reports in Italy that Lazio are looking at Boyata, fee rumoured at 7m. Take it and run, or decide after the World Cup?

Agree2 Disagree2

21 Jun 2018 21:10:17
Behave yourself Boyata is a bomb scare and a slight improvement on Ambrose if they offered half that is take it just shows how over inflated the current market is.

22 Jun 2018 07:51:56
Hardly a bomb scare mate, guilty of a loss of concentration too often yes, but on it and focused he is much better than some would suggest.

22 Jun 2018 09:07:54
In the Belgian team before Kompany. Just saying.

{Ed001's Note - Kompany is injured.}

22 Jun 2018 12:21:30
If Belgium win the World Cup I expect Boyata to be a wanted player. Even getting to the late finals.

22 Jun 2018 12:32:12
Big man is still in one of the fancied teams starting line up? A lot say he is a bombscare but loads of centre halves have their moments even the top guys. The role of a centre back has changed to a take control of the game dictate the attacks from the back move the ball about instead of get a foot head anything on it and blooter it up the park kinda centre halves of old? Pity he only has one year left on contract. Be interested to see what Brendan does defensively with new additions. Mon the hoops 🙂🍀⚽️.

22 Jun 2018 20:10:36
The word on the streets, not mine, is that he is stalling. You can’t bkame him. Plays well gets a higher wage offer maybe, or goes to another club for a few bob. He’s in the biggest football windae there is. Makes sense to not commit.

21 Jun 2018 12:40:27
Am I right in saying Celtic will make the playing surface (pitch) bigger?
p.s first time on your site ed.

{Ed033's Note - First time as Blackhillbhoy, multiple times as Augustus glupe and other usernames.

21 Jun 2018 13:52:15
Haha sussed 😎😎😎😆😆.

21 Jun 2018 13:53:35

21 Jun 2018 15:26:09
Deary deary me lol.

21 Jun 2018 15:28:56
Hahaha ul need to get up earlier than that to fool him augustus blackhill.

21 Jun 2018 19:42:31
😂😂😂 owned!

Big brother is watching you :)

21 Jun 2018 20:59:47
I have a friend that knows the guy that sells the paint to the greenkeeper. He hasn't heard anything but I'll keep you up to date gus 🍀.

21 Jun 2018 18:05:55
Still got it Ed. the senses of a cadaver dog . which obvs would be needed for zombies.

21 Jun 2018 23:39:19
🤣🤣🤣🤣 cannot kid a kidder.

20 Jun 2018 19:13:22
From what I have seen of Schar whilst at Basel and more so through the Swiss side he definitely looks like a player that would improve us. With the rumours of us being after him it makes me wonder why we never done the deal before the World Cup. I seem to remember we were linked a month or so ago, but surely if he has a decent tournament we will find ourselves outbid financially with wages to a mid range prem
team especially for the relatively low buying price.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Jun 2018 19:55:19
We know by now how Celtic do there business. If you heard it as a rumour, and its not happened a day or so later then it is and will remain a rumour. PL and BR keep their cards close to their chest. We won't find out thru rumours. although its fun to speculate.

20 Jun 2018 20:01:44
The rumours first came from those bogus websites. It's been a quiet week so the s*n decided to regurgitate it, and the rest of the rags have followed suit. Every single article refers to 'reports'. Unfortunately this one looks like column filler.

20 Jun 2018 20:25:54
Shame as he looked decent.

20 Jun 2018 21:53:28
I wouldn't disagree to be fair.

20 Jun 2018 22:02:33
He's a good player Quinn. And at the 'reported' 3.5m, would be a good signing. Anything that originates from those certain few sites though tends to be BS.

20 Jun 2018 23:02:03
Don’t really see us signing him, he was good against Brazil, so that ends our chances.

21 Jun 2018 08:39:40
@Quinn1888 - If there actually is an interest I very much doubt it's Celtic's fault the deal hasn't been sorted and much more likely that the player would want to use the WC to put himself in the shop window and assess his options afterwards.

21 Jun 2018 09:48:36
Has anyone noticed since commons left there has been no mole in cp. Is that a coincidence. Your guess is as good as mine.

21 Jun 2018 11:01:12
Guessing is not a science. I’m guessing.

21 Jun 2018 12:31:45
Lawwell will wait to the last possible minute to sign the cheapest possible players.

21 Jun 2018 13:55:23
Like he done with edouard jb67?

21 Jun 2018 19:45:11
And Sinky and Ntcham. Some folks always negative.

21 Jun 2018 23:06:29
Why do some posters continue to make fools of themselves, I hate to read a poster who continues to post nonsense about Peter Lawwell. Maybe Mr Lawwell did something nasty on Jamesbhoy67 in the past.

23 Jun 2018 11:50:21
It was already agreed to sign him last season before the 17th of june, keep up kev.

23 Jun 2018 11:47:00
No one is being negative shug, they are just stating facts about how lawwell goes about his penny pinching prudent business plan each year, he waits to see if we qualify for the champions league before going about most of his business.

23 Jun 2018 11:48:16
Oh, how the tide has turned. Not so long ago PL was going to be hung, drawn and quartered by most on here. Guy has been superb for Celtic.

23 Jun 2018 11:49:30
lawwell does the same thing every year, he waits on champions league qualification before he does most of his business.

20 Jun 2018 19:00:22
Heard from good source this afternoon Stuart Armstrong off to Southampton fee agreed in principle.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Jun 2018 20:04:20
Sad to see him leave but we have McGregor n Rogic for that role.

21 Jun 2018 08:45:05
Armstrong is a box to box CM rather than an AM Kev so I'd imagine we might make a move for McGinn if this goes through.

21 Jun 2018 12:31:37
@SMG: any info on how much the fee is? Thx.

21 Jun 2018 19:51:19
John McGinn would be a fantastic signing but would he improve the starting XI we still have Christie and Allan on the books.

22 Jun 2018 12:24:25
I would imagine Allen would be going the other way as part of the deal!

23 Jun 2018 11:52:24
No approach for John yet.

19 Jun 2018 23:17:33
Rumour that the brazillian on trial is Wellington silva, RB.

{Ed007's Note - It's not.}

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Jun 2018 11:48:17
Already confirmed all the boys are U19's.

19 Jun 2018 11:29:08
Akashkert of Armenia in cl away first.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Jun 2018 12:00:18
What a belter of a tie for Cork City. Don't think either club will be happy with that draw.

19 Jun 2018 13:47:03
It's a lengthy trip and it's a high altitude over there but we should be comfortable over two legs.

19 Jun 2018 14:04:06
Rosenberg or Rekyavjik in game 2. Rosenberg then.

19 Jun 2018 15:38:54
I'm happy enough with that. We were too strong for Rosenborg last season without a striker or a central defence.

20 Jun 2018 08:06:24
Hot, very hot and sticky place. Tough for the first real run out but home should kill them.

19 Jun 2018 10:03:07
Sunderland want calvin Miller on loan?

Agree0 Disagree7

19 Jun 2018 10:53:12
I’d send him and Ralston down to Sunderland to get game time, as it stands neither of them are ready to play in our first team .

19 Jun 2018 13:59:33
Ralston was doing well until he got injured he should be looking to make the RB position his own this season.

19 Jun 2018 15:43:13
Ralston would have had some serious game time under his belt if he hadn't got injured.

19 Jun 2018 18:23:07
From what i’ve seen of him in our first team I can say i’ve been overly impressed, Lustig is still the best right back at the club .

19 Jun 2018 19:23:58
Ralston is not even a tenth of the player Tierney was when he broke through.

I’ll say it now, Motherwell player in a few years.

19 Jun 2018 20:54:31
Ralston I don’t think has what it takes. I too think he’s a Motherwell level, possibly Aberdeen or Hibs. wishful thinking or hoping doesn’t alter that. We need a right back capable of taking over from and hopefully even better than Lustig.

We need to buy that as we don’t have anywhere near that level currently.

19 Jun 2018 22:28:22
Probably in with the same crowd that thought MacGregor wouldn’t cut it. Give the boy a chance and see how he progresses if he was a foreign lad we wouldn’t be as quick to judge he’s only 19!

20 Jun 2018 07:23:34
Well, McGregor has had one really good season for us so let’s not get carried away just yet.

He also left for a while on loan at a more competitive league that our own championship.

I compare Ralston to Tierney when he broke through not McGregor so I’m confident that he is in no shape or form be our future RB. Nothing I’ve seen indicates otherwise and I’d happily come on here in 2 years and hold my hands up if I’m wrong.

20 Jun 2018 09:12:49
I would like to know what games people watched that made them think Ralston was the real deal. I must have missed that one. He is strong and robust but lacks awareness both going forward and defending in the games I’ve watched him. Nothing would be better if he was good enough, but, being a dyed in the wool tim isn’t enough.

Similar to Kev I will be delighted if he proves us wrong. But what if he doesn’t? Should we not get in a really good RB and let them fight it out? He us only 19, but again, if you have it, you have it. He reminds me of 80’s defenders, strong, hard tackling but light on technical ability.

KT is the benchmark, not Ralston, keep him and give him a chance to develop, but right now, for me, he isn’t good enough for the CL and that has to be the level we aim for to progress.
If he has what it takes after Brendan improves him great. If he doesn’t we have a player to do the business if we recruit.
KT took wee Izzy’s place. Ralston needs to do the same or he will be loaned then sold. It’s in his hands and I hope he turns into a brilliant player as I do with all our young players. It seldom happens though and that’s just a fact.

20 Jun 2018 09:21:36
Glad you ain't the manager Kev T all you have done recently is criticise the club. Comparing Ralston to KT. KT is a left back. Why not compare him with Lustig or Gamboa the actual players he is competing with for his position. God help our youths coming through if you are comparing them all to KT who is the first world class youth player that has come through in decades. Ralston has done nothing wrong when playing and did well on loan and was outstanding for Scotland youths recently. Give the boy a break and get behind him one read of your comments and you will put the boy of football for life!

20 Jun 2018 09:33:17
For godsake Mp you are just as bad. What games have you seen that he was as poor as you and Kev T are making out. I have high hopes for Ralston and expect him to make that position his own. I certainly ain't judging him on a performance against the worlds most expensive player, as people on here seem to be doing.

20 Jun 2018 10:24:49
It’s opinion having watched him. You think he’s going to be great. We don’t. We want you to be right though, but that doesn’t mean we believe he will be the player you think.

Time will tell. He just isn’t good enough right now. Nowhere near it, if you think he is your drinking too early. :)

Or his agent.

20 Jun 2018 10:29:46
Agrree Stan.

20 Jun 2018 11:21:52
So MacGregor has had 1 good season and we have to calm down before we make a judgement but yet Ralston didn’t even have half a season and you can judge?

20 Jun 2018 11:49:02
Not had a drink since Hogmanay mate. Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion i just believe we as fans, especially on here are far too quick to be critical. We can't keep comparing others with KT. Look at my point about Calvin Miller yesterday, he is being unfairly judged by being made to play out of position. No way i would criticise that lad, hopefully the decision to play him there and not left wing is reversed asap. As with Ralston i have seen enough to be hopeful he will make it at CP.

20 Jun 2018 13:12:51
Poor Stan have I upset you by saying it like it is

If I’m not happy with something I say it and when we do good business I applaud it like the rest

If I was boss then Ralston would be told sorry pal but Gamboa is a better player and he ain’t good enough and sign a RB that is good enough for Europe.

20 Jun 2018 14:15:58
Gamboa is a better player? I give up. Edouard is not strengthening the squad, Paddy McCourt a waste of cash and only did it against lesser teams, don't get carried away by McGregor who has only had one good season, and Ralston not even a tenth of the player KT is. Post something positive soon will you this site is being dragged into the rain clouds by doom and gloom merchants.

20 Jun 2018 15:46:17
All the info you posted is correct and agreed by many Stan

Edouard isn’t strengthing the team, why because he was here last year. I also said I was delighted he is now our player in the same post!

Gamboa is better than Ralston

McGregor has had 1 good season, the year before he was hit and miss. This year he’s been soo good that i would play him ahead of Rogic all day long

Paddy McCourt was rubbish, he may well have been gifted but where was it in the bigger games against the better players.

20 Jun 2018 19:39:55
We'll just have to disagree today Kev. I'm sure like me you will be hoping Ralston proves you wrong.

20 Jun 2018 20:05:26
For sure mate, cause Scotland also really need a RB.

20 Jun 2018 20:36:41
Aye Kev my fear is McLeish will start playing Hendry there.

20 Jun 2018 23:07:42
Eduard doesn’t improve the squad cause he was here last year, players signing extensions also doesn’t improve the squad, and I can feel a major let down coming from the board in this window, just like every other window, hope for once I’m proved wrong, but I doubt it.

21 Jun 2018 23:13:17
Eduardo does improve the squad, he is a very young footballer and if he and many others haven't improved year on year, then the board should consider changing our coaching team, from top to bottom .
