I know it's early days but has anybody heard of any potential movement in January besides James McCarthy? The club played their cards very close to their chest in the summer so we may not hear much until deals are nearly pushed through.


{Ed007's Note - McCarthy is Rodgers No.1 target for January and as I said the other week Celtic are one of the clubs who have contacted Everton about signing him.}

1.) 10 Nov 2016 15:59:11
Hope it's true ed think him and broony would make a great pairing, but will come down to money as per or maybe a season loan.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see Everton agreeing to a loan, they want him sold. The main problem I foresee is how much Everton want for him but the player could well dig his heels in and demand a move to Celtic by letting Everton know they can either sell him to us or have an unhappy player who is surplus to requirements but contracted to them until 2020.
I'm quietly confident that McCarthy will be a Celtic player by the time next season's CL qualifiers kick off.}

2.) 10 Nov 2016 16:03:22
Do you think we'll be busy Ed? I know people like the idea of a settled team for qualifiers but January is notoriously difficult to find good players or good prices. I don't see us buying for the sake of it and McCarthy on his own would be a major coup.

{Ed007's Note - I think we'll be busy trying to get players moved on more than on incoming signings, Kev.}

3.) 10 Nov 2016 16:03:45
Kevbhoy u are right, we don't give much information about possible signings until the deal is near done and I for one like that, as it stops many different cases of disappointment .

I am far from sure about Mc Carthy, on the basis of his international form he is not the type of midfielder I would want and I don't think he would fit into the midfield engine that B R wants . He isn't mobile enough, he wins the ball and plays a short pass but doesn't make himself available . I think people are judging him on the potential he showed at Hamilton .
I hope I am wrong, I always like to see a Celtic player playing for ROI.

4.) 10 Nov 2016 16:05:57
Any idea of the terms Ed? Loan, buy, loan to buy? Wait and see?

{Ed007's Note - Everton don't want a loan deal but anything can happen.}

5.) 10 Nov 2016 16:53:47

Going back to the player digging his heels in. I like to think he'd want to come. In the most respectful way I don't think there's anything left for him in England. Come home, enjoy your prime, become a hero and be part of 10 in a row. Or stay at Everton or a club of a similar ilk and go through the motions.

{Ed007's Note - It's a no-brainer for me, JT.}

6.) 10 Nov 2016 18:39:07
Spot on Jim Tim. That prospect could be a tantalising lure for other targets normally out of our reach.

7.) 10 Nov 2016 19:41:30
Hope it's permanent deal if any ed, disagree with OB I think he is mobile and is a good passer also reads game well and decent in the tackle would do for me.

8.) 10 Nov 2016 19:44:11
I think he would be a great signing. We need a DM, he fits the bill and wants to sign. I can't understand the criticism. Hope you are recovering well old bhoy but what exactly do you want a good dm to do? Against good opposition I'd be quite happy for him to win tackles and keep possession. For the last few years he has played against some great players and has done well in lower teams if you will call them that. I'd still take him if the years were rolled back and he was putting in similar preformances at that age in the spl. Difference is he moved and for a long time was a first 11 player in the epl. It's a no brainer for me if he wants to play here for a deal of say 5m with addons. We have wasted that again and again. Brown limped off with a dead leg the other day (I thought it was worse and I think it is) and I $hat a brick because we still don't have direct cover.

9.) 11 Nov 2016 09:17:00
It must certainly be an attractive prospect to a Celtic fan Rab (yes)

10.) 11 Nov 2016 17:33:41
Mallythetally . Have u watched him playing for the ROI over his last half dozen games or so . Do you think he has played well. ?
If so I think you are setting the bar very low and although I want him at Celtic B R will have to do a lot of work with him .

11.) 12 Nov 2016 07:51:36
If you think his signing would be setting the bar too low, as indeed I do. Why want BR to sign him at all? The money it would take simply because of the over rated over priced league he is in suggest to me a better, younger player could be found.

I have always thought McCarthy a good player but never a great one.

12.) 12 Nov 2016 22:32:00
Magicpole This forum is on the road to hell, we are in total agreenent.

13.) 13 Nov 2016 10:55:07
The world shifted on it's axis Old Bhoy. :)

14.) 13 Nov 2016 19:26:35
Magicpole, we won't sign McCarthy, he is a red herring
Yesterday ROI beat Austria and with for the most part a new midfield pairing of Myler and Arher . A fit McCarthy wouldn't get on ROI team now .

15.) 14 Nov 2016 09:59:12
I'm just not convinced he would take us to a level that the money to secure him should do. But, we will need to stop agreeing, people will start talking. :)



28 Sep 2016 14:23:17
I've heard that we are considering going for Snodgrass in January as he is out of contract. He's on top form atm and will be very popular but also is a massive Celtic fan. Any idea if:
a) It's true

b) There's any chance?


1.) 28 Sep 2016 15:28:15
Would love this if true.

2.) 28 Sep 2016 17:32:55
Don't know if it's true or if there is a chance but I'd take him no bother.
Really good player.

3.) 29 Sep 2016 09:58:01
Could be true. Hopefully be good to see him playing for his bhoy hood heroes.

4.) 29 Sep 2016 10:12:55
I'd have him but wouldn't be bothered I'd we don't tbh.

5.) 30 Sep 2016 11:00:12
Who would we drop if we signed snodgrass . because I don't think with they way we are playing just now he would get in our team.



20 Aug 2016 21:35:48
It's all gone very quiet on the transfer front. Are any names being whispered or is everyone holding their breath until after Tuesday night?


1.) 20 Aug 2016 22:05:38
I'm hedging my bets on there being no more signings. Unfortunately tho as I still think we're short of 1 or 2 I. e a full back and a number 10.

2.) 20 Aug 2016 22:17:01
On the basis we qualify we will sign another two. I've heard Bony will be one of the signings.

3.) 20 Aug 2016 22:33:42
Think if this big signing is going to happen it will be after we qualify! Hope the clear out starts soon squads too big!

4.) 20 Aug 2016 22:05:38

Would imagine all our thoughts and energy will be on the game bud! Hoping there's some movement after the match is out the road.

8.) 20 Aug 2016 23:17:00
giving what rodgers said I think there will definitely be ay least 2 more if we go through. Who? No idea but hopefully a midfielder, a right back (Janko awful again today) and if possible another striker.

9.) 21 Aug 2016 00:02:10
Would likely be a few loans we get in now. Young City RB Pablo Maffeo is highly rated wasn't far off first team squad until picking up an injury can cover both CB areas too.

10.) 21 Aug 2016 08:25:58
Thinking about right back when Lustig rested, Henderson could do a job in there got to be better than Janko.

11.) 21 Aug 2016 09:21:40
We need guys in at rb who are rb's not guys playing out of position. That's where deila went wrong plus I just don't think the team had confidence in him. Just look at the difference Rodgers has made with pretty much the same players.

12.) 21 Aug 2016 10:37:58
From what I've seen I don't see Janko being a mainstay in the squad never mind as first pick RB. He's fast and strong but so was Amido Balde lol. Don't think he's technically good enough.

13.) 21 Aug 2016 07:06:32
The clear out will happen after we know if we have qualified or not. As a lot of the deadwood are due bonuses if we make the group stages. So they won't want to move till we know what uefa comp we are in . Am I right ed.

{Ed007's Note - I've said before that is certainly a possibility, Marco.}



08 Jul 2016 23:03:24
Martin Ødegaard on loan starting to do the rounds on Twitter. Probably nothing in it but if so I'd rather have a player of our own since we're already losing Roberts after this season.


1.) 09 Jul 2016 00:28:33
You think he will be ready for the man city first team or bench when he's done this year @KevBhoy?

2.) 09 Jul 2016 08:06:18
Who knows but chances are they'll take him back and loan him again elsewhere like they did with Denayer.

3.) 09 Jul 2016 18:56:13
I don't think Roberts will ever make the man city team. The only way it would happen is if they tighten the purse strings on transfers which isn't going to happen. No disrespect to Roberts but say they spend in January and again next summer, where does that leave him? Lucky thing for him is that he is English and young he won't have a problem finding a club with the homegrown rule.

4.) 09 Jul 2016 18:58:08
If he has a good season with us I'd like to sign him but wage wise we couldn't offer him what he would get down south so it's a non starter.



04 Jul 2016 16:06:54
Unless we hijack the move at the very last minute it looks like Elyounoussi is signing for Basel. There'll be a few disgruntled folk on here I'd imagine.


1.) 04 Jul 2016 16:23:50
Cant believe we are passing that up for that price.

2.) 04 Jul 2016 16:26:38
One here. Bit annoyed that we were so close too. This kid and Dembele in would have had us looking very exciting in the near future.

3.) 04 Jul 2016 17:05:15
Maybe if RD was still in charge we would have gone back in but BR has his own targets in mind? Either way he's better than what we have currently. I stress the word currently (fingers crossed) .

4.) 04 Jul 2016 17:11:35
I'd be annoyed 2 as that would b a great attack with Griff Roberts dembele elynouusi in a 4231 if not elynouusi then hopefully another type of forward like him can beat a man n cross as well as be a scoring threat.

15 Jan 2017 01:13:49
I haven't had a sniff of a rumour for the past week! Anybody got any info at all? Ed? I reckon we'll bring in 2 more but probably in the last few days.


1.) 15 Jan 2017 08:21:11
Have to admit, the club do a great job of keeping things under wraps. The gutter rags just end up guessing names but I am intrigued as to who we will bring in. Like you I think maybe two more, presumably another centre back as we are releasing a few, but izzy keeps getting linked away as well.

But I thought br wanted a no 10 type in the summer . Hopefully he can pull a couple of exciting players in to add to what he's already built. I'd have thought ed would have had some info but even he seems quiet .

2.) 15 Jan 2017 10:26:29
With Eboue coming in, Armstrong could fill that number 10 spot.

3.) 15 Jan 2017 11:28:29
Ed. I read this morning that we are trying to get Roberts loan extended for another season. is there any truth in this?

{Ed007's Note - Rodgers wants Roberts to stay, wether that's another loan or permanent isn't clear yet.}

4.) 15 Jan 2017 12:15:55
Please don't move Armstrong he playing out of his skin,
Only Ronnie would move him lol.
I think we need a player for the right wing in the same mould as Sinclair and we would destroy teams.
Forrest is too inconsistent and Roberts is probably off in the summer.
If being greedy a CH would be good as well.

5.) 15 Jan 2017 14:09:39
I'm with you rayman I keep hearing posters on here wanting him in the no 10 position but can't understand why.

6.) 15 Jan 2017 14:27:41
I find that strange Ed as BR rarely plays Roberts.

{Ed007's Note - Roberts has made 28 appearances this season.}

7.) 15 Jan 2017 17:09:10
Its reported as an additional season lone extension, not a permanent move unfortunately.

8.) 15 Jan 2017 17:54:05
Yeah but 5 minutes off the bench counts as an appearance Ed. BR's first choice wingers are Forrest and Sinclair and Roberts starts the majority of games on the bench.

9.) 15 Jan 2017 18:43:14
However most of us know that Roberts should be starting ahead of Forrest, form wise Roberts is in better form, creates more n is more deadly at scoring as well as his link up play.

He has also had more impact with less game time than wee james in my opinion n will star in our team when played regular which I feel is starting with him being in the side these last few games n also champions league has always looked good at that level, whereas for me wee james goes missing.



09 Jan 2017 20:53:36
Any update on the Eboue work permit? From the noises the club are making, it's gone to appeal and they're completely confident it'll go through but what's the normal timescale for this? Another day or two?


1.) 09 Jan 2017 23:19:31
Apparently it's finalised that's why eboue is travelling back to Russia to sort himself out before moving to Glasgow. Another day or two before the official signing.

This is only what I've heard tho so might be a bit of Chinese whispers going on!

2.) 10 Jan 2017 03:25:35
BR is talking the boy up a fair bit, sounds like an exciting player.

3.) 10 Jan 2017 11:10:48
Havn't really seen the boy much, but I wanted a ball winning CM, particularly for Europe where the turnover of possession is so important. Getting him in now, up and running will be ideal. The fact he can supposedly play a bit too is a bonus.

4.) 10 Jan 2017 12:57:57
apparently he's signed now work permit went through

5.) 10 Jan 2017 16:03:38
Just reading some comments from his agent there though. Whilst I fully accept the reality of it all, I'm not a fan of him saying that we're a stepping stone - before he's even kicked a ball! You just keep your head down Kouassi and remember you have to earn those moves by giving this team 100%.

6.) 10 Jan 2017 17:57:57
Big wanyama said the same if a remember right Jim. It's the way they see it mate n it's probably how celtic put it to them, there should be someone from pr telling them how to word it tho cos it's not so endearing.

7.) 10 Jan 2017 20:13:48
Would rather have an honest player than a badge kisser

8.) 11 Jan 2017 00:31:08
Of course we are a stepping stone for players if they want to make it to the top eboue like wanyama not only wants to play in the champions league but maybe have a chance of winning it some day I for one have no issue with that providing they earn their moves by being successful with the hoops first.

9.) 11 Jan 2017 07:24:13
tell him to turkey off we are celtic not brechin, stepping stone? goosing cheeky bastard.

10.) 11 Jan 2017 08:16:01
See he has aspirations to become better than Pogba. The last player I remember likening himself to a player of that caliber and talking about us as a stepping stone was Mo Bangura

11.) 11 Jan 2017 08:29:41
I agree Digi, but it was his agent and not himself mind. I think that's what I didn't like.

Like I said I accept it's just the way it goes, but you might be right Steph, we might put it to young players like that. Almost a usp of our business model.

12.) 11 Jan 2017 12:07:51
ed i see you have used a poultry theme when you edited my above post you must have thought my language was FOWL just as well you didn't use a meat theme you might have said my language was OFFAL.

{Ed001's Note - nice one mate and well spotted. That is this week's swear theme. Be a different one next week though!}

13.) 11 Jan 2017 02:35:24
still no confirmation ed?

{Ed007's Note - Not yet mate.......

14.) 11 Jan 2017 21:32:25
its an agents job to sell players, then sell them again, and again and again.

so we are miffed at an agent. doing his job? (ie prepping for is next next move! )

they are lowlifes and don't care about football - just the $$$ but we have to get real and just accept that its part of our beautiful game now

15.) 12 Jan 2017 02:03:50
my point was digi that he hasn't even kicked a ball for us yet, you can expect that crap a season in but even before he's signed? that's just taking the piss.



07 Jan 2017 10:14:05
Are we playing a bounce game at all while out in Dubai? Seems like a decent idea as there are plenty of ex-pats out that way who'd love to see the hoops. It's not like Pedro to miss a trick where money is involved either.


1.) 07 Jan 2017 12:48:21
Pedro ain't calling the shots anymore buddy he would have to ask Brendan

2.) 07 Jan 2017 14:46:27
Even so, it doesn't seem like the worst idea. It couldn't do any harm having a friendly against a UAE XI or something.

3.) 07 Jan 2017 16:39:03
After so many games and only in January think we are better with a weeks rest and recharge the batteries



05 Jan 2017 16:44:48
West Ham have bid £20M for Dembele according to DR. Tell them to jog on!


1.) 05 Jan 2017 16:50:22
Jog on indeed. He'll do much better than west ham eventually.

2.) 05 Jan 2017 16:52:25
So it begins. Can't blame them for low-balling 😃. I wouldn't sell him now, for that. We can get more out of him in the hoops, and in time, more out of his suitor.

3.) 05 Jan 2017 17:15:16
is there any actual offer confirmed by either club?, don't believe it maself, why bid 20 mill when the EPL lowball us all the time.

4.) 05 Jan 2017 17:26:34
Am wae u bhoywonder just don't believe the record. Never have never will. Until it's confirmed by one of the club's or ed.

5.) 05 Jan 2017 17:33:06
W. H have confirmed on their own web page that they have bid 20m for a player from Scotland. Id say that's pretty much all you need tbh.

6.) 05 Jan 2017 17:50:54
Saying that I heard bilic is a big effe ambrose fan if carlsberg done transfer windows.

7.) 05 Jan 2017 18:06:33
Shug . You say West Ham site say they've made a £20m bid for a player from Scotland . For all we know it might be McKay or even Garner ✅.

8.) 05 Jan 2017 18:48:01
also says player from scotland, not player from scottish league, could be rhodes, mcormack etc.

9.) 05 Jan 2017 19:09:36
efe? lol.

10.) 05 Jan 2017 20:08:08
Do you think rhodes or mccormack are worth 20m
More than one paper reporting its dembele. However as ed has said its under their "insider" section on the page so how "official" is that. i suppose it will all come out in the wash.

11.) 05 Jan 2017 20:14:33
Maybe its a typo and we are paying WH 20 mil to take efe.

12.) 05 Jan 2017 20:14:39
Me? 🍀.



04 Jan 2017 21:31:53
Eboue should be wrapped up soon from what we're reading but we should be wary of getting a taste for transfers with such an early signing because BR has said himself probably just one or two will come in. Even today we've been linked with Lansbury and Duverne and tomorrow it will be another name. I'm quite content that if Eboue is a Celtic player by the end of the week we may well have a fortnite or so of absolutely nothing before something else crops up.


1.) 04 Jan 2017 22:19:40
I recon that it will only be two or three in to be honest. Not panicked about only getting a couple as long as theyou are the right players who improve the squad instead of just adding numbers.

2.) 05 Jan 2017 01:10:24
Could do with centre forward for cover only have 2 (great as they may be, may get injured) or is there young player ready to step up?

Would be happy to see three or four moved out permanently in this window as well to help free-up cash for investment in new arrivals or improving contracts.

I'm surprised a Russian team is willing to sell their rising star for £2.5/ 3 million. Although having seen the way some of the fans behave over there, I'd imagine he'd prefer to ply his trade in Glasgow.

I was saying on one of the Celtic FB pages that his record is worse than 1 in 6. Amido Baldé was 1 in 3 for the club we bought him from and that was in a much better league. If he didn't have that last name nobody would be happy if we were linked to him.
