DR linking us with Marvin Johnson who used to play for Motherwell, now at Oxford. Apparently Man City and Leicester have had him watched too. A very strange one.


1.) 30 Mar 2017 14:44:48
thats stv got a hold of that story too now kev, it certainly is a strange one, i don't ever remember him being any great shakes, he was just a run of the mill journeyman player.

2.) 30 Mar 2017 15:29:40
At least it's not Marvin Andrews.

3.) 30 Mar 2017 19:56:54
or julie andrews.

4.) 31 Mar 2017 17:08:10
Man City? 😂 This is a day too early.



23 Mar 2017 21:53:57
Ed a lot of people, including yourself, have suggested Celtic could or should go for John McGinn in the summer. I've noticed that the social media rumours are gathering pace after BR praising him. Are you aware of any genuine interest from the club to make something happen?


{Ed007's Note - John Park had McGinn scouted and we were keeping an eye on him but I don't know what the new scouting regime will think of him. I'd imagine Lee Congerton will want to see him for himself before deciding if scouting him should continue.}

1.) 24 Mar 2017 14:57:04
Cheers. I like the look of him and a boy in work is really good mates with him and says he'll be leaving Hibs in the summer. BR has said he wants to be making an impact in Europe though and he's maybe not at that level.

{Ed007's Note - I said the same thing but he's more than capable of holding his own on the domestic front. I'd also try and get shot of Scott Allan as part of any deal.}

2.) 24 Mar 2017 22:35:52
he wants to move down south.

3.) 26 Mar 2017 13:24:16
How do you know that jamesbhoy67, because he's from Clydebank? Moving south didn't work well for his older brother, so a few more years up here would be better suited.

4.) 26 Mar 2017 14:15:50
my family has been friends with john's family going way back more than 70 years, john went to school with my son so its safe to say i've had a few conversations with him and his family about it, he's had his heart set on playing down south for years, his two brothers weren't as good as john.

i've said to him never mind england get yourself in the hoops, but i said the same thing to my friend kevin gallacher, and playing in england didn't do kevin any harm 53 international caps later.

5.) 27 Mar 2017 19:54:37
If Celtic come calling I'm pretty sure there's a good chance he'll end up in the hoops. Realistically who down south is going to target him? The only club mentioned in January was Sunderland and they'll be a championship club in the next few weeks! If he'd prefer to play in the Championship over coming to Celtic I'd be very surprised. Big Celtic supporting family will guide him.

6.) 27 Mar 2017 21:24:23
he's never had an offer from celtic.

7.) 27 Mar 2017 21:39:06
That's why I said "if" Celtic come calling! Never suggested they've made him an offer.

8.) 27 Mar 2017 23:57:10
Unless Sunderland offer him double the wages Celtic do ice man.

9.) 27 Mar 2017 23:13:53
between you and me mate i don't think he thinks he would get a game at celtic.

10.) 28 Mar 2017 11:02:58
If money is the motivation then fair enough can't argue with the kid wanting a slice of the English riches!

11.) 28 Mar 2017 11:13:34
Don't really see the fuss with him.
Is he really any better than what we have already?

12.) 28 Mar 2017 18:34:44
as i said kev i know the boy doesn't think he's good enough to get a game for celtic, i think rodgers will be targeting a higher class of player for the champions league next season.

13.) 29 Mar 2017 12:07:41
Did we not say the same about McCarthy etc?

14.) 29 Mar 2017 16:44:41
A lot of people are still saying that about mccarthy island. Not me by the way.

15.) 30 Mar 2017 14:37:40
celtic's offer to everton for mccarthy is still on the table.



14 Feb 2017 11:39:12
DR running the story that Sevilla are in for Henry Onyekuru now. It seems to me that if we were really desperate to get him we would have paid the money and got the deal done quickly like we did with Kouassi. This story will run and run until the summer with a number of clubs "joining the race" and if he goes elsewhere in the summer, which seems likely given his attitude and behaviour during January, he'll have "snubbed" Celtic. IMO he looks a cracking player but we have the money to go out and get an established CL quality winger in the summer so it wouldn't be a massive loss.


1.) 14 Feb 2017 11:51:29
He looks like a cracking player, somebidy we could realky do with. Was it him BR was frustrated about not signing? Possibly. As for the personality, big question mark for me. It could just take one schemer from the SMSM to literally make up that an EPL team are after him in January, and he might be getting a lift down the road from Odemwingie.

2.) 14 Feb 2017 13:21:12
If moussa leaves in the summer and let's hope he doesn't this boy might b the ideal replacement and the next big thing.

3.) 14 Feb 2017 13:32:52
Of course the gutter press will say he snubbed celtic. they'll only write this stuff so people buy their guff.

4.) 14 Feb 2017 14:27:50
Mallythetally I think he's more of a winger than a striker but it would be an excellent signing from what little I've seen of him. Ed mentioned that his attitude had been highlighted to Celtic as a potential concern though and you can understand why. Like I said though, we're now in a position where we can afford a current big thing rather than the next big thing!

5.) 14 Feb 2017 17:51:05
Agree, not an out and out striker but have not seen much of him. maybe brendan could convert him.

6.) 14 Feb 2017 19:17:34
The lads been playing as a striker this year for his club! Scored the winner at the weekend against Gent. That's 13 goals for the season so far! I'd happily take this guy.

7.) 14 Feb 2017 22:32:04
He has mainly been playing on the left of a front three Ice Man. Looks like by the time he scored against Gent though, that he was moved into the middle, once Sylla came off. It's good to have that wee bit versatility though, especially when trying to get a smaller squad.



26 Jan 2017 10:52:31
I'm sure there is a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes on the transfer front but I'd be surprised if we heard anything before Sunday as it's going to be an historic day for our club and the full focus of everyone should be on that. I can't wait and am hoping there is a full house! HH.




23 Jan 2017 23:41:53
The s*n reporting Eboue went to a Glasgow hospital with suspected malaria! Out now and apparently given the all clear.


{Ed007's Note - Aye, Kev. He had 'suspected Malaria' but was well enough to train today...... I smell BS buddy.}

1.) 24 Jan 2017 00:19:26
Must be that Russian strain.

23 Apr 2017 19:19:11
With regards to Scott Brown's appeal. After Halliday's tackle today he shouldn't be worried at all of winning it but if he doesn't are there timing issues that would allow him to play on Saturday? If not I'd like to see McGregor and Armstrong play central with Rogic further ahead but BR would probably go with Bitton.


1.) 24 Apr 2017 09:08:20
Surely all SB has to do in his appeal is whip his phone out and show them the Halliday challenge. It's about as identical as you can get. I have no real complaints about Brown being shown a red, as it could have went either way. What I have a problem with is the inconsistencies, in the space of a week!



13 Apr 2017 09:15:47
I must say I'm very underwhelmed at the thought of signing Fabio Borini. The guy averages under 5 goals a season in all competitions.


1.) 13 Apr 2017 09:28:34
He'd surely only be coming in as back up to Dembele. He has failed to live up to the early potential shown. It would probably be a similar move to SS, in that BR will be hoping to get the best out of him again. Given how difficult it would be to get the right striker in as back up it might not be too bad, but I was hoping for better myself Kev.

2.) 13 Apr 2017 11:22:54
The difference with SS is that he had performed well consistently for Swansea in the Championship and Premier League which got him his big move to City. I'd rather have LG as back-up to MD.

{Ed007's Note - Are people forgetting what happened between Rodgers and Borini at Liverpool? The way the player was treated and the way they parted company means it would be nigh on impossible that Borini would be interested in a move to work under Rodgers again and I seriously doubt Rodgers would want to work with him either.}

3.) 13 Apr 2017 12:12:12
Very expensive back up jimtim. we've got a 40 goal striker who can back moussa up! Borini is a decent player and can play a few positions, but with the fee and wages he'd command then it's a no for me!

Our priority should be a quality number 10 And top class centre half, and if I'm being greedy another right winger for when paddy goes back! But I trust Brendan on whoever he feels is right for us! Hopefully an exciting summer transfer window for us 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻.

4.) 13 Apr 2017 12:20:41
What happened, I can't remember anything about it.

5.) 13 Apr 2017 12:24:22
Take it they had a fall out?

6.) 13 Apr 2017 14:40:37
Borini said they didn't speak at all near the end of there time at Liverpool, so can't see why Brendan would go for him now.

7.) 13 Apr 2017 15:27:42
Lh86, we definitely need another striker. Few times this season we've played with no striker because of injury.

8.) 13 Apr 2017 14:53:39
Same Ed, I have no idea what happened between the 2 of them. Don't pay much attention to EPL stories.

{Ed007's Note - Rodgers didn't like the fact that the Borini transfer was a disaster and the player refused to join Sunderland on a permanent deal so Rodgers banished him to train himself. The player and his agent blasted both Rodgers and Liverpool over his treatment and that's why I would be amazed if there was any truth in this story - Rodgers would need to do some crawling to reach out to Borini and we know the manager never admits mistakes which it would look like - by the time the Italian left Liverpool him and Rodgers weren't even on speaking terms.
We have Dembele and Griffiths so Borini would be 3rd choice for a start, so a 26 year old player Rodgers broke promises to and banished to train himself is going to be happy sitting on our bench at best?
One of the things Borini has mentioned is the fact that he was never brought into the Liverpool squad even when they had no fit strikers so that shows how far out of Rodgers thoughts and plans he was.}

9.) 13 Apr 2017 16:16:32
Looks like it won't be Borini then. I wasn't aware of that story I just thought BR took him to Liverpool and FB struggled to make an impact. Still think we need another striker Lh86, as Aitchison obviously isn't part of the firat team plans just yet. Like I said getting the right man in to play as back-up will be a bit of a tough task.

10.) 13 Apr 2017 16:36:14
Totally agree kev83. we definitely need cover up front. i would think it would maybe an up and coming young striker who wouldn't mind being left out some times, rather than an expensive more experienced striker who wants to play every game! Which won't happen with dembele at the club. but agree 100% we need another striker to cover dembele and griff!



07 Apr 2017 17:43:18
Great business by the club getting BR tied down. If another team comes in for him now they'll need to pay top dollar or look elsewhere. Well done Celtic. HH.


1.) 07 Apr 2017 18:27:49
It's really positive news, I don't think that he would have signed such a deal unless he was convinced about the ambition of the club.
For the last 4 or 5 years the board seemed content to win the league and very little else, this approach was frustrating as it felt like the club was stagnating. All fans ask for is for the club to try and reach its potential, the difference in mood this season has been massive.
Supporters can take setbacks as long as they see the club doing what they can to get success. I think the season ticket sales will go well this summer.

2.) 07 Apr 2017 19:39:57
Great news, but for me that's a statement of intent.
Money will be spent.

3.) 07 Apr 2017 19:57:39
I am over the moon. The most important signing is the manager. Forget players the manager is the one who makes it happen.



28 Mar 2017 21:29:56
A big congratulations to Jackson Irvine who scored for Australia today. A lot of player's heads go down if they're let go by a club like ours but he's worked hard and done really well for himself down south. I even read he'd knocked back big money from China because he wants to play at as high a level as possible. That's a terrific attitude and a good example to any young player let go by a big club.


1.) 28 Mar 2017 23:38:42
Think we made a mistake when we let him slip away.

2.) 29 Mar 2017 00:11:29
Maybe Kev but he may never have had the game time he needed to really hit this form. One of those "what if" situations.

3.) 29 Mar 2017 16:00:17
Always thought he stood out against us whenever he played against us.
Hope he goes on to a good career.

4.) 29 Mar 2017 20:24:08
I may be wrong but i think we offered him a contract towards the end of his loan spell at Ross County, likewise I also thought he done well against us, I believe he is one of the better players at Burton, I hope he gets a move to a more established championship club and kicks on from there.

5.) 29 Mar 2017 21:06:35
We did Doidy16 but he knocked it back saying it was only offered so we could get cash for him.

6.) 29 Mar 2017 22:45:57
I recall that, we did the same thing with Dylan McGeouch before punting him to Hibs, don't blame him for rejecting it.

7.) 30 Mar 2017 00:42:43
He's a trier that one. Overlooked for a junior spot in the A-League as a youngster, and still managed to believe in himself and work his backside off overseas. Any success he has had or will have is all down to him. Guys like Miller and Watt would have had amazing careers had they had Irvine's determination and level headedness. I hope he keeps his place and ends up in Russia.

8.) 30 Mar 2017 08:42:10
That's right bhoys and if would be kind enough to acknowledge I was the first to say it was stupid to let him go!

Lad can play in a right few positions and within 8 WEEKS of letting him go he was the best player in Scotland outwith us according to a decent sunday paper

And the next one who is the next mistake IMO is Leo Fasan! His weakness his kicking and with no gripe at all with BR he likes a ball playing keeper

But as an ex keeper fur fox sake what ever happened to having a keeper that could catch it at corners? and you had a wee wager he could keep a penalty out? (y)

9.) 30 Mar 2017 19:37:14
peter latchford used to catch it with one hand jamie, and be waving the bhoys up the park with the other hand while he was doing it lol.

10.) 31 Mar 2017 15:00:28
Aye a remember saying that very thing to him JB a few years back when he came into my box a few years back lovely bloke happy to talk GK's all day long.



19 Mar 2017 15:24:12
Another 3 points closer to the title probably sums up that game. It's at the point where things tend to become scrappy because we're so close to getting the league over the line. We did enough to win but the international break is coming at a nice time for a few of the players who have looked a little bit tired recently. Hopefully they'll come back ready for one last push for the treble. HH.


1.) 19 Mar 2017 18:02:03
Pleased with the result, but too many below par performances, particularly in attack. I'm not sure if it's tiredness as we did seem to be able to move about. Far too many heavy touches, mishit passes, people running into eachother and tripping over the ball. Poor Eboue even fell off the bench lol. So much of our good attacking play has gone through Sinclair who looks like he is in a wee dip right now. Forrest did well for the second, bit offered little else. We're missing Rogic as a CAM, just somebody in there orchestrating things. As a result Dembele looks like a frustrated player. Winning whilst playing poorly is always good though. I think you're right about the scrappiness possibly being from the title being so close though.

2.) 19 Mar 2017 19:23:29
Unable to win the league against Sevco, we have the next best thing. Winning the league at the Edinburgh huns. Got this funny feeling though that we will win the league on the Friday when Aberdeen lose to Dundee. After that, never mind the unbeaten run, BR should tinker with squad to get the best possible team ready for the Semi Final. MTH!

3.) 19 Mar 2017 19:31:04
Kev agree with you and jim tim but confess to being worried for a few weeks now. Sinclair has been great and in my opinion as good a player if not a better one than Dembele? He has looked poor for 3/ 4 weeks. don't know if he has got bored or its just a drop in form but when he does not play then Celtic don't play. Sounds harsh but i would not have played him today after Rangers performance. Something feels not right. Need to restore the fluid play we produced earlier in the season and do it quick.

4.) 19 Mar 2017 21:36:34
Sinclair be back to he's best soon aye it's frustrating because we know the players better than what they've been giving us last few weeks no just Sinclair but it was always bound to hit a spell when we had to win ugly, iam a massive fan of young KT and he's only going to get better but I feel he's final ball in last 2 games been poor yet I hate picking that out because he's only human, we've missed big Rogic at times guy takes a lot a pressure off Dembele when he plays whrn he comes back be good to see, as I said in a previous post think breaks came at right time because a lot a players maybe going through the motions a bit but get this title wrapped up and back them like we've done all season to get this treble. ☘☘☘.

5.) 19 Mar 2017 21:49:07
Is it a coincidence that Sinclair's dip in form has happened around the time his Mrs has started working again? I'm not sure if she moved up here with him and moved back down for work?

Sorry Ed, maybe not that early but I can remember them taking heart from it and him struggling as he couldn't put the foot in after that. Forrest offers very little defensively but it's still probably more than Roberts. Attacking there's only one winner. Regardless we should have enough to do a job on them. Moussa needs a performance.


{Ed007's Note - The whole team owes us a performance after some of the recent lacklustre showings. I'm hoping Rogic coming back will give us a huge boost in the final third and with Sinclair consistently performing well even though he looks a bit jaded at times there should be plenty of chances for Dembele to put them to the sword.}

My only issue with your team Ed is that Lustig struggled with McKay's pace at Ibrox and ended up getting booked quite early and with Roberts not the most willing to track back, it could pose a problem when they attack.


{Ed007's Note - Lustig wasn't booked until the 65th minute but hopefully on Sunday Forrest will do his job and track back to help his fullback for a change.}

I'm not overly fussed how much we shell out in transfer fees as long as we spend wisely and ambitiously.


{Ed007's Note - I never believe these type of stories, there's far too many factors involved to believe they are accurate, does the £15 million include agent fees and signing on fees? What about wages etc?

What is paid by the buying club would typically include:

(a) Transfer fee - the big number.
(b) Any levy applied by the local FA – 5% for the EPL.
(c) Tax due on the transfer fee – typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable.
(d) Agent fees – this may be to one or more agents.
(e) Tax due on the agent fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(f) Intermediary fees – this may be to one or more sponging leeches(what do you mean you have a super agent?) .
(g) Tax due on the Intermediary fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the Intermediary bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(h) Signing on fee to the player (possibly including non-reclaimable VAT if the player is VAT registered).
(i) Legal fees.
(j) VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable.
(k) Moving/relocation costs for the player.
(l) VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable.
(m) Paying up insurance costs to the selling club (sometimes waived).
(n) Variables and tax on variables which may or may not be reclaimable) – these would typically include legal fees, moving/relocation costs, etc....

Are all these costs coming out of the £15 million?}

I thought Collum had a good game. I missed the first few minutes but from the replays Halliday should've been off no question but from then on he called the penalty perfectly and rightly discarded Miller's handball shouts. Thought he did well so credit where it's due.

Sometimes I feel for the refs when players dive as it just makes their job more difficult but there is absolutely no excuse for yesterday's penalty decision, none whatsoever. Brown's, at the time, I thought was very reckless because of the speed he dived in and it was pretty clear that he'd lost the head and went for the man and not the ball. Whether or not it warranted a red card I don't know. I know he was frustrated but the league's won and there are important games coming up you'd expect better from your captain.

Who's tip-toeing around it miko? Even Neil McCann said it was blatant cheating. Absolutely disgraceful from the player and the officials. Scott Brown should know better than to dive in at that speed in injury time, he's let us down but luckily we can appeal.
