4-6 months for Hayes. That could be the end of his Celtic career.


1.) 27 Dec 2017 17:32:16
You're not wrong.



28 Nov 2017 08:56:40
Celtic trying to buy a controlling stake in an Austrian club.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 10:12:34
I understand to progress as a club we need to find inventive ways of generating income and having an affiliated team down under with all the Celtic fans out there makes sense. I just hope we’re not in danger of becoming a franchise like Man City who also have an Australian team. I’d rather be Celtic than a soulless money machine.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 13:17:24
Austrian or Australian?

3.) 28 Nov 2017 14:01:26
Australian sorry. Spelling crap.

4.) 28 Nov 2017 20:04:52
Jackson Irvine, Tam Rogic and Skippy are not bad examples of what we could pick up from the Ozzie league.

5.) 28 Nov 2017 22:28:25
Fan based great. Better would be a decent youth academy. Never know what will turn up. If it's minimal which to be honest it will be. Shipping over some older gear to be reused by keen young players with good picked coaches no matter where it is in the world is a good thing.

6.) 28 Nov 2017 22:29:21
Didn't ask but what club?

7.) 29 Nov 2017 08:08:23
Brisbane Roar.

8.) 29 Nov 2017 08:32:20
Their 1st choice Central Coast Mariners with Brisbane roar as a back up.

9.) 29 Nov 2017 23:13:24
Big fan of the A-League. Lots of goals on BT Sport early doors on a Saturday morning and always decent crowds.

I think this could be a tidy bit of business by the club.

If it is Roar they go for could they rename them Brisbane Lions?



16 Nov 2017 18:33:46
Dorus de Vries has signed a contract extension which will see him remain at the Club until the summer of 2019.


1.) 16 Nov 2017 22:49:46
Honestly?, didn't see that coming.

2.) 17 Nov 2017 21:13:30
Not overly excited by this to say the least. Looks like we are stuck with the golden oldies for our gk options. I don't think CG will move to be a PL no2 at this stage of his career and the long contact he is on :/ . Never know. If CG jumps ship in the summer and we go for a new no1 then fine but it looks doubtful now.

3.) 19 Nov 2017 17:18:36
I think de vries is quite well liked around the club. May be something to do with bringing through the you lad hazard. Always good to have experienced heads around, which actually there aren't too many at Celtic.



13 Nov 2017 12:06:15
Reports saying we have offered a contract to
Ukrainian striker Artem Dovbyk.




27 Oct 2017 16:38:33
Ralston is getting a minor operation on his knee and will be out a further 6-8 weeks.


1.) 27 Oct 2017 18:48:29
Thats awe we need like the bhoy good replacement for mik.

2.) 27 Oct 2017 21:11:43
Is that bad because he is a younger player it’s a minor op as oppressed to him being older that would make it a Major op. sorry where’s my coat .

Can't say I know much about this found bhoy Morgan but looks like he can hit well with both feet from a video I just seen.


1.) 05 Jan 2018 15:39:06
He was released but the Huns Kev then the supposedly offered him a deal aswell and he’s told them to bolt looks quite good from what iv seen and there manager rates him very highly and is another good coach.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 15:44:52
Just need to see if he can step up campsie. Looked like he could play the number 10 roll as well as winger tae.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 09:22:07
He will really have to up his game if he wants to take Sinclair's spot. I see him as a squad player for that reason and will compete with benyou.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 09:44:02
I know a couple of St Mirren season ticket holders, who’ve been raving about him all season.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 14:43:05
I don't think he is any better than GMS to be honest. I believe he will go the same way get a few games not establish himself and be moved on. If you look at GMS now with Aberdeen he looks great but was lost at Celtic as so many are. Not a purchase i would have made.

6.) 06 Jan 2018 16:26:58
The way Sinclair is playing atm there's a place up for grabs .

7.) 07 Jan 2018 17:51:25
How many game have you seen Morgan playing live this season and how many have u watched GMS live also .
It impossible to judge a player from either A TV match or highlights.



23 Dec 2017 17:27:40
2 words for today
Kristoffer Ajer.


1.) 23 Dec 2017 19:48:54
Thought Ajer was excellent Kev but had Ncham or Broon as my MOTM. ☘️.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 20:15:49
Ajer just edged it for me today. Who officially got it?

3.) 23 Dec 2017 20:16:37
Ajer was super today. So composed on the play and a tower of strength in their air. Mad to think he's only 19. Lads what's then story with griffs?

4.) 23 Dec 2017 20:40:20
Broon officially got MOTM which IMO he deserved. I've heard the manager and Grif have issues due to his attiitude at training but is that because he's not playing? Our most prolific scorer since Henrik and not that long ago we were talking about him beating the kings record. Does anybody have a wee question mark over Rodgers in terms of having an ego problem and it's either my way or the byway? Just throwing it out there!

{Ed007's Note - There's no question mark over it, that's the rules and rightly so. And everybody knew he had an ego before he took over.}

5.) 23 Dec 2017 21:01:32
Fair enough Ed as long as we all know where we stand with Rodgers. I'm a big fan and applaud all he's achieved but an ego is never a good thing for me.

{Ed007's Note - Look at the problems we had with a one of the lads type manager (Lennon) and the quiet reserved professor type (RD). It was no coincidence that Mulgrew, Commons and Stokes all found themselves heading to the exit when Rodgers came in. I'd have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Rodgers invited Brown to his house for dinner and the conversation turned to the dynamics of the squad.}

6.) 23 Dec 2017 21:29:04
Tommy Burns didn't have an ego problem it was all about Celtic the club he lived and the fans and we played some of the the best football I've seen Celtic play in my lifetime under him. As I said EGO can never be a positive for me but as they say opinions are like arseholes we all have one Ed. God Bless.

{Ed007's Note - There's a difference between having an ego and having an ego problem. TB couldn't control Pierre, Di Canio and Caddette. Brendan Rodgers has managed rat scumbags like Suarez and Jack The Lads like Gerrard, he knows how to manage players and you need an ego and confidence in your own ability to do that.
So do you think when Rodgers talks about what the Club means to him and how important the fans etc are he's only saying what people want to hear?}

7.) 23 Dec 2017 21:48:23
Agreed Ed there is no issue with a belief in your ability but there is a differential between an EGO and an EGO problem. Time will tell which Rodgers has. Goodnight and God Bless Ed. I'm off to my Peter ☘️.

{Ed007's Note - Night buddy, God bless.}

8.) 23 Dec 2017 22:01:34
Time has already told. 4 trophies 69 unbeaten run 2 champions league qualifications and European football after Xmas.
The manager is in charge he picks the team. If a player doesn't like it or don't toe the line then goodbye. Doesn't matter what player.

9.) 23 Dec 2017 22:49:44
Big Jock took no crap from players, press or peers and could back up his attitude with his success and stature.
BR is in the same mould and will prove to be a legend at Celtic and those who try to hinder or upset the harmony, objectives and confidence within the dressing room will be out on their arse - and regret making the biggest mistake of their lives, having such an opportunity and flushing it away.

10.) 23 Dec 2017 22:51:59
Agree with Ed. Ego is not always a bad thing. As regards Griff its likely he could be off in the window. His attitude just can't be right in training. He is now 3rd choice striker and now if you want to talk about egos I don't think he will want to stay and fight for his place. He could be off.

11.) 23 Dec 2017 23:43:01
I was thinking it was something like that. That is a shame to hear. Be sorry to see him go if he does in the transfer window.

12.) 24 Dec 2017 00:18:34
Griffith's for me is by far the best striker at the club. Dembele will be off in January/ summer. Griffith's for me has nothing to prove on the park for Celtic the boy is a natural goalscorer that can score all types of goals. Personally Griffith's would start ahead of dembele every week for me.

{Ed007's Note - It's all about his bad additude, not trying in training and umpteen massive fall outs with Rodgers. By a sheer quirk of fate the stories about bust ups etc always happen just because he didn't start a game, we had them last December/January too and I'm sure his appearances are similar.
Nobody I know has told me there's any problems with LG, the guy came out and said so himself and people still prefer to believe pish off Tw@tter or what someone said in the pub.}

13.) 24 Dec 2017 01:03:02
We need to be careful with this labelling of B R with his ego. Show me a manager anywhere who hasn't got an ego and I will say he hasn't won much .
There is only room for one "ego" in dressing room and that is the manager .
I am delighted with B R 's self awareness and long may he continue boasting his own ego, so that his. and our club "ego " may continue.

{Ed007's Note - I feel like Scrooge here - I must be having a dream of Christmas present if I'm agreeing with you, Chris. I feel woozy again lol

14.) 24 Dec 2017 10:27:21
Eds totally right. Griffiths has played over 20 times this season. This happens every time he's on the bench.
Johnnymac Griffiths has stayed and fought for his place everytime he's needed to. Under Lennon Ronny and rogers. Why would now be different?

15.) 24 Dec 2017 20:41:04
Ed007 . Don't worry even you can be right once a year .

Happy Christmas Ed and good health in 2018.

{Ed007's Note - Merry Christmas, Chris and all the best in the new year.}

16.) 24 Dec 2017 22:15:54
I am 100% behind BR. He has a deep rooted passion for the club that most fans will understand. Griff, on the other hand, he's a super talented lad who has to accept what the boss says. If he has an issue with that then BR has to make a decision about what is in the best interests of the club and I think we can all agree that he should have the final call.

If an individual is upsetting the dynamics of the squad (and I'm not saying Griff is because I don't know) then that individual has to go. If that is the case then it's a very disappointing situation. BR has the ability to make Griff a better player than he already is but he has to listen and take on board what he is being told.

With BR I don't think it's an ego, it's more a genuine confidence in his own ability and he expects others to tow the line. I do think he's a modern version of Ferguson/ Stein/ Paisley etc. Their methods wouldn't work today if they were new to the game because players nowadays hold so much of the power about who they play for but BR is clearly trying to take all of the facts into consideration and we need to back him. HH.

17.) 24 Dec 2017 22:17:54
I think this ego problem is, how you say?, a diversionary tactic, some players need to keep playing so that they can become a team, this squad rotation is crap, was crap and will always be crap, Ronnie, blessed be his name believed in that, but it is crap, Griffith's and Dembelle are the two best strikers at the club, do you think they can sit on their arses on the bench week in and week out, and then be given a starting place, after weeks of idleness in terms of first team football and you expect them to be like they were six weeks ago, it is ridiculous, what had happened, has Brendan started reading, Ronnie's "how to manage a football team, for dummies", book that he left behind him.

18.) 24 Dec 2017 22:21:52
Rangers supporter here so go easy on me. I think the problem with LG not playing is a much simpler one and down to money. How could Celtic possibly sell dembele for 20M+ if he can't get into the starting 11. Because of this Dembele will ALWAYS get the nod. It's a shame because I think LG offers a lot more but he may have leave to have a chance of playing unless he is happy to sit on the bench until Dembele leaves.



19 Dec 2017 20:07:12
Bit of good news today. Young ralston played for a hour for the development team today.


1.) 19 Dec 2017 20:54:55
That is good news looking forward to seeing him back involved asap.

2.) 19 Dec 2017 21:04:55
I think if he hadn't have got injuried he would have been first choice by end of the season stan.

3.) 19 Dec 2017 22:13:42
He was certainly playing well Kev i'm sure he would have played a big part these last few weeks had he been available. Be like a new signing having him back involved.



18 Dec 2017 20:13:35
Right guys players you expect to leave in the January window?
Big Erik
Benyu (on loan)
Sneaky suspicion Armstrong if bid comes in.
Anyone else?


1.) 18 Dec 2017 22:24:49
Ajer on loan probably.

2.) 18 Dec 2017 22:38:55
Hayes, Simunovic, Erik, Gordon and Gamboa can go. None of them will get better and are simply not good enough. A few others yet to prove it but might come good - Kouassi needs a run but must be doubts about him. What has happened to Moussa?

3.) 18 Dec 2017 23:16:12
Can't see Hayes leaving. Ajer I think will be kept tae.

4.) 19 Dec 2017 08:13:02
Johnston, Miller and Aitchison are going to have to consider loans soon if they are not given game time. Said enough times last week that I don't believe playing in the Development league is any good for them. Considering the lack of game time Ajer has had this season his development and learning how to defend would have been better served with another 6 months at Kilmarnock, even more so with Clarke an ex defender there.

5.) 19 Dec 2017 18:56:59
Our squad is small enough without loaning out players who we might need.
If our coaches are not better than those of other Scottish teams, then I am living in a very deluded world.

6.) 19 Dec 2017 19:39:49
Chris i am pretty certain Ajer would have learnt a lot more about defending by playing 19 games with Kilmarnock rather than sitting on the bench or at training. If the defence is being taught so well at training why did they let in 4 goals against Hearts. I have been saying since last week these young players should be getting game time rather than us playing players who clearly need rest yet they haven't been given game time so what use is training when you ain't playing, unless of course you think the Development league is a great standard. I dont.

7.) 19 Dec 2017 21:11:22
Petrov, I don't agree, if he learned a lot in the 19 games with Killie he would have played a bigger role this season . He played some games at start of season and obviously disappointed those who matter . He was out of first team match squad for some time but obviously leaned plenty from the better quality coaches and players at Lennoxtown . At least recently he has got some match time and first team squad time.

8.) 19 Dec 2017 22:15:58
I can only go by what the lad said himself and that was that he learn a lot from being at Killie. Would really like to see him involved tomorrow, I'm sure he will be he was terrific last week.



15 Dec 2017 10:41:00
Ed I just read a story about the young Milan keeper. It said in it that he has played in the EL this season but if he signs for a CL club he can play in that tourney.
Does that mean if Celtic sign someone that's played in the CL they can still play for us in the EL?


{Ed007's Note - Yes.}

1.) 15 Dec 2017 12:08:32
Cool. That means the Germain guy still an option then. But is he any good?

{Ed007's Note - The German guy, Marvin Compper, would be ineligible to play in the EL for us because RB Leipzig are also in the EL. There's a thread on the rumours page where I explained it (yes)

2.) 15 Dec 2017 13:20:20
Aw that's right you can't play against a team you've played for. Mind it fae other day sorry ed.

{Ed007's Note - You can't play for another club if the club you left is currently in the same competition.}

Oscar you moaned that we are being linked with loans then praising the mob for bringing in players on loan.
Martin is a dud and I wouldn't pick him for a school team
Murphy is a not to bad player but that's it.
Cummings is a clown and spfl level and has just proved that.
All they players are for it catching Aberdeen not us.
Come end of the season I'd bet all 3 are back at their parent clubs.
I think we will strengthen. I think another CB will be brought in at the very least.
As for LB I don't think we are in a serious rush as Compper can play there as well.

Can't see it ed or they wouldn't have gave him the contract. Think it's more likely the summer for any movement in the keeper department.
