The Hamilton LB Hendrie was linked with us a wee while back, and his move to West Ham has just collapsed. Are we still/have we ever been interested?
Izzy desperately needs competition

mikeb433

Quotes say he is out of contract on the Summer so a bit strange why West Ham we're going to pay £2 million for him especially when he won't be a starter. Could be a good move for us on a Bosman although we would have to pay a development fee due to his age.

Hey Ed is this Darren Fletcher link just rags putting two and two together and getting five? Or is there a chance we might break the wage structure? Obviously spent a while out the side with illness but for me, one of Utd's most underrated players over a decade. Would certainly bring the experience and steady head to our midfield. Think I remember a quote of him saying he'd like to finish up at Celtic.

My mate is a ST holder and word on the street is that Bolton will get Commons. NL wants a playmaker like him and his current record since he took over as manager is not too shabby and they look likely to back him. Results good and supporters are behind him.

DN30, it was a comment passed on from a friend who has a few contacts within the club. No it does not make him an expert but I thought this was a rumours page where items like this may be of interest to others. Since he is not the manager or director I guess it does not make it official but it certainly is legit in as much as it is a legitimate statement made by my friend based on the knowledge he has.

Today is the 22nd Jan. I think the transfer window closes on Mon 2nd Feb. As it takes Celtic about 2 weeks to get any players, when are they going to start talks WITH ANYONE.Or are they going to con the fans once again.

Celtic supposedly stepping it up to bring in Armstrong in Jan, ED any news on this? I think we should offer 3m to Utd to bring in him and GMS see if they take the bait

bravetart86

(18)
(7)

20 Jan 2015 11:31:26
They rate Armstrong at £2.5m and GMS at £250.000 so there is no way Celtic are going to offer £3m for both of them especially when we get GMS for nothing in the summer too many people at celtic with the biscuit tin mentality .

AlanP

(0)
(0)

Celtic will bid on last day for something like £50k to sign GMS this window. Take it or recieve nothing. I don't think Dundee United can afford to not take £

DN30

Ed07{Ed007's Note - Dundee Utd are in a great financial position to turn it down. They posted a net profit of £1.2m for the last financial year and that figure did not include the £2.8m sale of Andrew Robertson to Hull City, or Ryan Gauld's £3m switch to Sporting Lisbon.}

(0)
(0)

Forgot about that ed. Surely though they would want to take some £ rather than nothing?

DN30

Ed07{Ed007's Note - There's circa £180k of a difference between finishing 3rd and 4th in the Premiership and circa £250k between 2nd and 3rd. Utd are chasing a European place, there's a league cup final place up for grabs and they're still in the Scottish Cup. Would you take £50k for Commons?}

(0)
(1)

Ed, the main reason for their current position is that they have highly competent businessmen running the club so surely taking a lower price for GMS would be more savvy than paying him another 4/5 month's wages and receiving no fee?

Kevbhoy

Ed07{Ed007's Note - So you'd take £50k for Commons?}

20 Jan 2015 16:21:38
Good point ed can see why they are saying 250k now. Would make sense to reject anything below that figure when they still have a lot to play for

What's your thoughts on Armstrong? Do you think we could get him in before end of the window?

Kieran_Bhoy Kieran_Bhoy

Ed07{Ed007's Note - I have no idea where the Armstrong story came from but nobody's contacted Dundee Utd about him.}

(0)

My understanding is that Celtic are no longer interested in Armstrong and are instead going to work on the progress of Henderson who has 5 years on Armstrong and has far better potential.

Darylbhoy

If we had a suitable replacement for commons and if he was not to feature in Deilas plans, I would be happy with something rather than nothing.

DN30

(0)

They put a price tag of 6m on Ciftci and Armstrong my guessing is that's 3m each I can't see them valuing Ciftci at 3.5m and 2.5 for Armstrong as he's the better player. So my opinion would be offer 3m for both Armstrong and GMS see if they take it. Or add a 10-15% sell on fee on top for Armstrong if they refuse the offer to sell both. I rate Henderson but that's all we hear from Celtic is potential we need some proven players too

bravetart86

Armstrong is far better than Henderson, he may well be 5 years younger but he's 10 years behind in footballing terms

Never heard so much 💩 in all my life. Sorry I have, keep forgetting every year for the past 6/7 years Pedro says we can sign a £5 million plus player

I'd love to know where sly sports get there sources from by the way! Says celtic have entered into negotiations for Armstrong and tryin to agree a fee! I think they just make it up as they go along by the way! I for one would be stunned if Lawell payed 2.5 million for anyone in the SPL! I really rate Armstrong and would love to see him in the hoops, but I'm afraid there's no chance! Hopefully I'm proved wrong but! We'll be lucky to spend any money in this window, just like the last one!

Dangy1888

A lot of negativity on here I think celtic will sign GMS and Armstrong before the end of this window. Will we get anyone else probably not might sign gudetti on a permenent basis but can't see us doing much more if we get them two in. I am all for buying good scottish talent I thing armstrong is better than biton and might even take over from brown in years to come. And GMS is better than what we have out wide just now if he can stay fit.

Sam1888cfc

(0)

Sam I don't think its negativity at all! I really hope we do get Armstrong and gms but I don't think we'll pay out the money! Just being realistic unfortunately, we've barely spent a penny in the past 3 or 4 windows and nuthin has made me think otherwise! But like I said I hope I'm proved wrong and we sign both of them in this window!

Dangy1888

(0)
(1)

I think we will get GMS, Armstrong and one more in purely on the basis Guidetti ain't coming so the 3m will be used elsewhere. Agree although Henderson is a decent young player and has potential he is miles behind Armstrong

bravetart86

Ed07{Ed007's Note - Well Armstrong is four years older than Henderson and has a lot more experience than Henderson. It's an unfair comparison to make considering Armstrong has played over 140 games and Henderson hasn't even made 20 appearances.
I'd say Henderson is a better player today than Armstrong was at 18.}

Heard they'r wantin the boy over for 3rd trial! Now if u don't know if u want the player after he's been over twice and scored twice in a game then Uve got to ask if theyr doing there jobs properly!This is what we've become but! We could get him and GMS for a combined half a mill but we can't even do that! Embarssing is the word that springs to mind!

He left today for Brentford, and Bournemouth waiting in the wings, we need to get a move on if we want a good player for the future

Malika20

The fact that its Brentford and Bournemouth that are waiting in the wings may tell you why we are unwilling to pay £300,000. Its a fair chunk of money for a player the manager is clearly not sure about.

19 Jan 2015 16:54:10
Chris, I do agree to a certain extent, but the fact is they want a third look at the player so perhaps they don't rate him at the asking price? Why should we just pay what we are asked? I would be happy to see GMS coming in now right enough!

Pedrobhoy

(1)
(1)

If they need to see the guy 3 times then there's sumthin wrong there! By all accounts the reports were good on the boy! 300 grand on I wouldn't imagine high wages represents no risk to us! It's just another example of us penny pinching and tryin to get every player for a few grand cheaper!

Dangy1888

(1)

Spot on Dangy1888, Pedrobhoy we must clearly rate him, I agree we shouldn't pay what we asked all the time but c'mon mate our boards penny pinching over the years a disgrace.

I take it Celtic must have asked for a price to get the 300k quote. I bet Bournemouth or Brentford would gladly pay that money for such a promising player.No doubt Celtic's interest has alerted other clubs to his availability.Time to stump up the cash or lose out to a non penny pinchin outfit who shouldn't even be considered as an alternative to signing for the Hoops!

Makes perfect sense, let's spend around 2 million each on 3 average players on huge wages and then quibble over 300 grand for others.

Any news on Maloney Ed? Lot of talk yesterday about him signing a pre contract.

Dangy1888

Ed07{Ed007's Note - Maloney himself has said he would rather stay in England so because of the one-month-rule in effect down there he will probably wait until nearer the summer to see if anyone makes a move for him on a free, unless of course someone is willing to pay a fee like Leicester are/were. I expect Leicester to have another go at doing a deal this window.}

Maloney on the way, McClean will take 3k a week cut in wages and come, no way will he play league 1 next season, get Duffy signed now and flog Virgil, some great defenders available on loan right now, who will get us through to the summer

Malika20

(19)

17 Jan 2015 11:35:54
Would take Duffy but everything else you've posted can't see it, Maloney heading to States, McClean will stay in England I think even if Wigan get relegated can see some premier clubs aswell as championship clubs bidding for him as for vvd keep him to the summer doesn't need sold him & he's agent been pricks

Chris30

(1)
(0)

You might be right Malika20 about Maloney coming back right enough but I don't get it, 1 of the reasons Commons seemingly isn't getting a 2 year deal is because his age, Maloney is older is he not? To me Commons a better player & goalscorer, don't get me wrong I've got nothing against Shaun when he on form he a good player but he didn't exactly do anything great it his second spell way us and got to remember he couldn't wait to get away the first time when Oneil tapped him up. I think the way Commons been treated a disgrace & also got to agree way his agent he gave up Scotland to focus on us, I don't get this move at all if it happens. If you can ed can you put a poll up Maloney or Commons much appreciated.

Chris30

I think Maloney would suit RDs system better but must disagree about the 'gave up playing for Scotland to concentrate on Celtic' - I am sure he said at the time he was giving up so he could spend more time with his family! - no problem with that, think he is quite right as players must spend a lot of time in hotels etc

Markiebhoy your right but he also did say he just wanted to concentrate on club football way us, I'll ask you this do you think it right the way he being treated.

Chris30

Chris

I agree he is being treated harshly but football is a harsh sport. One minute you can be worth a fortune and the next worthless.

Do you remember we signed Fojut (now at Dundee Utd) on a pre-contract a few years back and then he done his ACL? We tore up the contract at that point. Harsh but the right thing to do. Hopefully this gamble pays off too as they clearly don't see Commons as a first pick for the next 2 years.

NiallH

(0)
(0)

Totally agree NiallH I know it a harsh sport but I think as players are always said to show loyalty which in my opinion Commons has clearly done the board should be doing the same, mate if it wasn't for him last season we would have struggled for goals bar he's second season he's been consistent and we all know what he had to deal with off the park that season which would have messed anyone's head, I know he doesn't maybe fit rd system all the time but in my opinion he would be top goalscorer this season aswell if he was playing regular. Just my opinion bud I think we going back to the biscuit tin mentality, iam not gone a come on here & say I know what commons is wanting because I don't but I don't think he being holding club to ransom.

Chris30

(0)
(0)

Chris

We are on the same page. I would give Commons what he wants unless asking for a massive rise as he is one of the only creative influences we have and as you say where would we have been last season without him. He has been loyal and appears to love playing for Celtic but the board have a right to offer him what they see fit. Just because he is getting a 1 year deal doesn't mean he won't be offered another year if things go well next season. Quite a few EPL teams do this with guys over 30.

Would take this with a massive shovel of (rock)salt as he would cost £2m approx and we won't even spend a tenth of that to get GMS right away.

He's actually a winger can play on left right or off the striker. True with a small amount like that I fear what the team in years to come will end up like as for now it's not much better than the Mowbray era

Are we never gone to learn our lessons going for these foreigners when there's players in spl that would be better for us, any truth in this & we offering £2 mill why is that not going to Armstrong, I really don't get this Lennon was the same in the transfers bought duds when there was better playing in spl, I agree bravetart86 that's we were back the way like Mowbray was taking us.

Chris30

It is all about trying to make a profit apparently no one will pay the big money for Scottish players but we got good money for the likes of McGeady, Forster, Hooper playing for us and in CL. Scottish players should be the core of our team, we should have these players as our long term and get the odd foreigner in too who will likely be using us as a stepping stone. Scottish players can come cheap too with a sell on clause on offer.

Apparently we've approached Dundee United about talking to GMS. I know a lot of people would question whether he's the calibre of player we need (personally I like him and think he'd do well) but at least this way we know he can do a job on the domestic scene, which is sometimes not even guaranteed when we bring in unknown players from all over Europe.

Ronny Deila is interested in doing a swap with Adam Matthews heading to Cardiff while South Koreans Kim Bo-Kyung comes to Celtic. Anyone know if he's any good?

Matthews may be having a rough time at the minute but we all know (I think we all know) he's a good right-back. Can't see him being allowed to leave.

Heard we're looking at the striker Nemanja Nikolic of Videoton.
The guy has been monitored the past few windows and his scoring record has continued to impress having scored 16 goals in 16 games and has been the top scorer in the league the past two seasons.
Sounds like the kind of guy we need.

Thought I would cheer everybody up with the news that West Ham AND Crystal Palace are weighing up offers for Ambrose, looks like 2015 could be great year for all Celtic fans if he leaves and we make some money yippee
Please form an orderly queue to drive him down south

And don't be surprised if he thrives down in England. In my humble opinion he actually has all the skills to be a top defender. He is fast, athletic, good in the air, can tackle, has actually got reasonably good ability on the ball. The thing that let's him down is the mistakes he makes which usually turn out costly. Others must see the abilities and think that the mistakes can be coached out of him, maybe turning a player they spent a couple of million on into top defender that they can sell on for profit. They must see something on him. Markie

I agree markie, you get the impression that if he could cut out the schoolboy errors, he could be a half decent player.
He would have to learn quickly in that league though, the strikers in that division, would really punish the type of mistakes he makes here.

Sorry Timalloy would not be a great year for me if he leave's at least he want's to be here unlike VVD, who in my opinion has cost us goals by his attitude that someone else will do it

I'd rather have 11 players who gave their all for the shirt every week than 11 who do what they can for themselves to get a move for better financial gain. Who is more likely to be loyal to Celtic. Ambrose or VVD.? We are all Efe Ambrose ;)

For a long time I have felt that he would be far more effective in a midfield role where any errors are likely to be less critical. On the odd occasion when he goes forward he has shown excellent dribbling skills and adds to our attacking moves.

Agree with you cujimmy CDM is more suitable his pace and strength would provide good cover. He's no CB. I posted last week QPR and Leicester were after him West Ham have denied their interest

I think ambrose has the potential but maybe at DM! The criticism of VVD I think is outa order and his quality is really underrated! He's a class above anyone in our league and if your good at your job would you not like to play against the best! let's face it PL will be looking to sell t the right price probably banking on it!

the loan fees for tonev, wakaso and berget would of bought him and probably paid his wages for some time to

GMS would be a good signing but surely Armstrong has to be the pick since we were too tight fisted to sign Robertson! But I don't feel Berget has had a proper opertunity when he's played he has showed touches of class not that I'm saying he's a good signing just that he's not been given enough of a go.

GMS would be good for us and Armstrong would be a great signing. Berget was woeful I watched every game he played and couldn't see any signs he had seen a ball before never mind signs of class

What's peoples thoughts on the talk were bidding for Doyle? Seems like another case of quantity over quality for me. Then we'll be clutxhing at straws saying well he's only 24 and has a good record bla bla bla. Take it Guidetti has told us to GTF?

It would be a bit embarrassing. What happened to being in the market for a 5-6m player? Anyway, I'd much rather Scepovic be our number one striker and get the boy Kayode in for a few hundred k.

I agree with you both, the thought of this guy pulling on the hoops is embarrassing, is this the level we are aiming for now? So much for not being in the market for a striker, according to Ronny the other day. And jim did u actually think we would be in the market for a player that costs that much, come on its CFC penny pinching AGAIN, I wouldn't be surprised if we missed out on a couple of bargains because Pete doesn't want to pay an extra 20quid for them.

I had the same initial thoughts as you guys but after reading about him he could be worth a punt at the money quoted. B4 hibs he was a scoring sensation at Sligo rovers, didn't do well at hibs but they played him out of position out wide. Now scoring goals for fun at Chesterfield and attracting a lot of bigger clubs not just us. So surely worth a punt? Markie

I hope this is all paper talk we can do better than him. I can remember him at hibs and I wasn't that impressed to tell the truth i'd rather take Nadir from united. I seen in the daily rag that Bolton have made the first steps to lure Commons away celtic should get a grip and give him the 2 yr contract he wants he's been a great player for us since day one!.

Ed07{Ed007's Note - If you've seen Doyle playing you'd know for yourself, if you've not seen him how do you know he's worth a punt, because he's Irish?

Why does John Park stay in his job, when he seems to be responsible for bringing so much dross to the club?
Considering Lawwell is so money conscious, you wonder at him putting up with someone who seems to cost the club so much money.

gerryc

Ed07{Ed007's Note - I think he fails miserably at finding any decent strikers, not one of his recommendations has been a success but he does seem to have a knack of spotting decent defenders and midfielders. He's made the club a lot of money through transfer deals but as you say a lot has been wasted on players that should never have been given the chance to play for CFC, even on loan.}

Marco yes he did say we wernt in for a striker, does it signal that gudetti won't be signing a permanent deal? But like the Doyle rumour, I seriously hope not I've seen him a few times and have never been impressed he's a player a team ends up carrying for 90mins. I'd rather the money be spent on a decent LB as cover for izzy and a decent CB, and GMS. forget CM and Strikers got plenty of them in the squad and out on loan, time we got what we needed for a change!

If like Armstrong and Gudetti on a permenent deal and possibly a CB I'd be happy and am telling you's all now we will lose out on GMS because they will penny pinch they could have him if they wanted in celtics defence united out of order wanting 2million for someone who's contract is up in the summer.

Sam1888cfc

Sam,
I think you are talking pish regarding the £2million fee. GMS will be sold if anyone offers £0.5million in my opinion as never mind Dundee Utd Celtic would sell any player in January for£0.5 million if they were out of contract in the summer for free unless they knew there was still a chance of keeping them on ie Kris Commons do you think for one minute Celtic would not sell Commons if they thought they had a chance of him staying? I think not. Now I am a Celtic supporter the same as most people on here but at the end of the day and sadly so it is now a business and because of that the hopes and dreams of all Celtic supporters is now secondary to the business model.
Hail Hail Celtic 'til I die.

Did Celtic not sign Gary Hooper who had scored less goals than Eoin Doyle has scored in the same division?
Now I know it didn't work out for him at Hibs but he played as a lone striker a lot of the time in a pish poor Hibs team so don't be so quick to condemn him. I do however think Celtic should be looking at players of a much higher profile than Doyle to appease the fans and to convince them that the club has indeed got some f$%k!~g ambition instead of being a cash cow for the effing money grabbing shareholders who are not interested in Celtic for the right reasons.
Perhaps the money grabbing bar stewards want to look into the history of the club and see why it was formed in the first place.
Rant Over. and OVER.

Eoin Doyle could be a good signing for us, I think he is a late developer and could score a lot of goals for us .
If Celtic want GMS, they will get him for
£300/400k.

Difference being gunnie Doyle has been tested in spfl and failed, griffths played for same club and was a success and still struggles to get a game, is Doyle going to be no.1 striker at £1.5 that's a dear sub, will he play scepovic and Doyle together and completely change formation? I have deliberately left guidetti out as doesn't look like he will be here come summer
