Seemingly Delaney has bn asked by the media and reports he left the country last week and his link to us. He replied with a smile that "yes sometimes when we get a couple of days off we travel".

1.) 16 Aug 2016 16:08:08
There isn't a sniff of it on tinterweb apart from some stories going back to February. Better not to listen to meaningless gossip, it gets some people all in a flutter! lol.

2.) 16 Aug 2016 17:25:15
Here's the story quote
Danish newspaper Tipsbladen spoke to Thomas Delaney ahead of their Champions League clash. They also as asked him about speculation linking him with Celtic - here is his reply

"Apropos " crazy world " . In transfervinduets last weeks blows it with rumors in the world of football, and when FC Copenhagen players last week had two days off, was gossiped about Thomas Delaney's " whereabouts " . In several places, it was reported that Delaney was spotted at Copenhagen airport on the way out of the country while his name still abound on the rumors in Scotland, where he again be associated with Celtic
What says Thomas Delaney to these speculations?

He responds with a poker smile :

- Yes, when you have two days off, there are many of us who travel .

He would not comment further. Now it is about Champions League.

3.) 16 Aug 2016 17:57:42
so because he smiled he's going to Celtic?

4.) 16 Aug 2016 18:34:56
Deduce what you want from it. Its a have a bit banter rumor page. What you expect mate.

5.) 16 Aug 2016 18:45:02
Smoke and mirrors mate, while he's under contract he won't comment on any other interested club, wait till the second legs by with and if there's something there I'm sure it will materialize.

6.) 16 Aug 2016 18:53:35
Shug, thanks for that translation. It's clear that he's on the verge of signing for us. There could be no other meaning! lol.

7.) 16 Aug 2016 19:26:50
Lets face it. The big name CM will be Stevie G 🤔.

8.) 16 Aug 2016 19:37:44
I've got a sneaky feeling Stevie G could be the marquee signing. makes sense, season loan, gets to move back into hs house near Liverpool, champs lge again. he loves the hoops too. doable imo

9.) 16 Aug 2016 19:39:25
Would he be eligible for CL.

10.) 16 Aug 2016 19:45:37
Is there actually substance to this if we get through to the CL then we'll sign a big name player? Sounds to me like a lot of people on here could be really dissapponted by the way! I know skinnybhoy has said its a cert that it will happen! But I wouldn't get my hopes up by the way! Hope it happens, but I'm always sceptical! Lol.

11.) 16 Aug 2016 20:27:37
I'm just thinking of potential big names that we could attract. Stevie G for me is a more realistic target. plus BR likes to sign players he trusts.

12.) 16 Aug 2016 20:36:00
Since when did singing Gerrard become marquee. He is done and hopefully remains in the good old US of A.

13.) 16 Aug 2016 21:05:26
schwienstieger keeps popping up everywhere, i first thought no thanks but if it is him what a statement of intent that is.

14.) 16 Aug 2016 21:44:06
Schwienstieger is under contract for 2 years and is on approx 275k a week. I think that we can put that to bed. He ain't taking a 95% pay cut, Man U ain't gona cover his salary on a loan.

15.) 16 Aug 2016 22:16:52
If he wants the dough he will go to America. Didn't fit with man u and his stock has dropped. His wage will be putting a few clubs off.

16.) 17 Aug 2016 09:19:25
Gerrard would be a fantastic signing IMO. Been there and done it in the CL. Brilliant leader. Does his best in training and often stays back after it has finished to practice even at his age. Will calm the younger players and show them a proper professional way to do things. A bit like what Kolo is doing just now which is doing wonders for our back 4.

17.) 17 Aug 2016 17:33:51
Delaney agrees to Join Bremen in january.



15 Aug 2016 20:42:04
Hope this one isn't true

Guys on KDS all flinging McGeadys name about. Seemingly has built a new house in Glasgow and his kid has started school up here

Really don't fancy it. PR is who we want on that position.

1.) 15 Aug 2016 21:15:39
stuff that.

2.) 15 Aug 2016 22:28:41
It's true about the new house, that's in bothwell however that means nothing the money he has now he could have 20 houses!

3.) 15 Aug 2016 23:26:41
He still has a house in thorntonhall and so it means nothing. Plus a certain Mr Lafferty also has a new home yards from me and he hasn't joined the club to the south west as far as I can gather.

4.) 16 Aug 2016 00:28:44
A chap I know from the pub is childhood friends with mcgeadys dad, and he told me ages ago that he (aiden) is quite the property collector. So a house in bothwell means hee haw really. He has dozens of properties including ones in Scotland and the ones he still owns when he was in Russia.

5.) 16 Aug 2016 13:32:08
First time poster.

His daughter was enrolled in school yesterday. Our Lady of Lourdes.

Obviously doesn't mean he's definitely coming back but the above is true at least.


6.) 16 Aug 2016 15:35:10
Would not want him, he wouldn't improve the team and unless he's grown up a lot, he'd be trouble especially with the promotion of amrhat new team.

7.) 16 Aug 2016 19:40:39
Never happen, BR likes his wide men to have out and out pace, which is why forrest is back in team. McGeady like GMS doesn't have that. rely on tricks t go past players but struggle to get away from men afterwards.



05 Aug 2016 21:49:37
BBC sport confirming Sinclair medical tomorrow lunchtime.

1.) 05 Aug 2016 22:45:19
another medical?

That must be his 6th!

we will wake up on monday and it will be like a scene out of Dallas …. Henke will still be here and we'll be 2-2 with Porto in the UEFA Cup and everything else didn't actually happen :)

{Ed007's Note - :=D

2.) 06 Aug 2016 00:07:20
well i would be happy with that.

3.) 06 Aug 2016 02:11:39
never got over him …still watch clips …. at least monthly …blessed to have him …. i know i know i know …i should move on but what a player eh?

4.) 06 Aug 2016 09:04:25
That's all very acceptable paradisewon. A true legend indeed, as long as you don't think about him when you're having a w**k! lol.

5.) 06 Aug 2016 14:31:08
Besty what would be wrong with that being an inclusive club and all that, a club like no other

As it so happens. I don't but I have a life size rubber doll with dreadlocks that I like to take to bed once in a while

That okay?

6.) 06 Aug 2016 16:20:23
If you shout 'Oh Henrik' at the crucial moment then I think you might need help! lol.

7.) 06 Aug 2016 17:14:45
Henriks the striker for me for me

Oh henrik


8.) 06 Aug 2016 19:04:23
I think you're obsessed! lol

That ain't healthy :-)

Excellent performance tonight. About the most disciplined i have seen them play recently. Musonda shows what he can do in a tight space with his part in drawing 3 players in before the goal. McGregor deserved his goal for his work rate but for me Ntcham continues to improve game on game.

Well done bhoys



27 Aug 2017 19:14:51
Well that will depend on whether he can score a perfect hat-trick into Celtic. We can compare them then.

1.) 28 Aug 2017 10:10:40
who shug?



08 Apr 2017 18:03:15
Arguably the best signing this season.



22 Feb 2017 21:50:03
Was the upload to controversial Ed 😆.

{Ed033's Note - no it's not too controversial. It'll be up soon enough, thanks

1.) 23 Feb 2017 10:39:17
Looking forward to this shug. Hope it's not a let down.

{Ed033's Note - It's already up on the Sightings page as '3 Sevco Rangers supporters'.

2.) 23 Feb 2017 15:02:18
No bad shug. Would've loved to see them getting off that bus n realising what had happened. Daft huns, who'd have them.



08 Jan 2017 14:55:58
So now media saying our value on MD is 30m. I think he will be a superstar one day but if that kind of money gets offered, and BR has full control, then 30m plus whatever else we are going to have to spend would allow us to transform the the team into something really special.

1.) 08 Jan 2017 15:34:59
Would be massively dissappinted to see MD sold at the moment even though £30m is a lot of cash in anybody's language that could indeed be reinvested in the team. Still don't see the rush though as his value will only increase if he's as good as we think he is. As I've said before finding raw talent and giving it a stage at the highest level accepting we're a window to EPL has got to be our business model but we need to get the balance right in terms of getting the best out of them for a few seasons beforehand. For me timing needs to be based on making sure we keep the best of the best to qualify for CL or it's both false economy and demoralising for the fans. 🍀

2.) 08 Jan 2017 17:30:38
though we made 30 m off champs league, so we have 30 m to spend already

3.) 08 Jan 2017 18:32:16
We didn't make £30mil, maybe close too!
And if we do get £20/ 30mil for Dembele? That's not how it works and won't work lol
It's not all spends, only a fraction.

4.) 08 Jan 2017 18:50:34
The money might be tempting, but qualification for CL is priority for next season again, and that would be much more realistic with MD on our book than reinvesting his sale on new players that might not settle in as well as moussa has.

I hope we keep him until he at least earns his first cap (which can't be too far away) . Ideal time to sell would be after World Cup imo, where his stock will be at its highest. will we be able to resist until then?

5.) 08 Jan 2017 20:22:01
Dembele might be the difference between qualifying again, and getting another 30m of champions league money. Look at it like that. We have the power over the fee any club wants to pay

6.) 08 Jan 2017 20:27:48
We should also try for a higher sell on percentage if/ when he gets sold say 20/ 25% cos he will get an even bigger move later no doubt

7.) 08 Jan 2017 21:40:53
Devil's advocate but worth remembering that it was Griffiths that got us to the UCL group stages, not Dembele. Yes he had his (very important) penalty against Astana but LG scored against LRI, Astana home and away, and a double against HBS.

8.) 08 Jan 2017 22:54:04
Agree griffiths was the man who got us there, and is probably still the best finisher in Scotland. I just think over the last few months, especially in the bigger games, Dembele has stepped up and it's clear Rodgers sees him as the main forward.

For what it's worth, I think Griff is suited to most games we play and is very unfortunate to find MD in the form he was/ is when Leigh got injured

9.) 09 Jan 2017 12:56:47
We are a much better team with both Dembele and Griffiths available - as opposed to recent seasons where Ciftci, Scepovic and Stokes were possible options?
The whole point of appointing BR was to lift the club to where it should have been since 2012 if managed properly and decisions were in tandem with our huge advantage and regain our CL status and improve quality.
Obviously huge offers will be very tempting, but the manager must be given every chance to finish what he started and keep players that seem very happy to be here.

Don't think there are many who will disagree mate. I'm all for finding a gem like Dembele and Ntcham but there are times when we just need to spend and get a finished product. Our defence including Gordon is poor overall with KT the exception. 3rd place is doable in this group but only if there is a vast improvement in defence. That 20min period the other night was a big wake up call imo.

I'm not judging either. The kid may be another Dembele or Ntcham, but i can't see it. And where our defence (that's including Gordon btw) is just now I am expecting another hiding like Barcelona. Don't get me wrong, being there to get the hiding is where we want to be but we at least want the confidence that if we park the defence we can hold back another real do in. As for height of defender, that doesn't bother me if he's got the right attributes.

ED i don't know how your not on medication having to put up with all the mood swings on here.

Guys, roll back to Monday. I tell you all that we will beat Zenit but draw today and you will all take it and be pleased. So why are we moaning about today when we field a team that some the players aren't even 2nd choice. And maybe i am being positive but there was good play today but just couldn't put it in the net.

{Ed007's Note - There always a bit of a negative reaction when we don't win easily by a few goal. Even though I think a lot of it is an over reaction everyone's entitled to their opinion, I'm more a glass half full type of guy and can understand why Rodgers made the changes he did with the squad flying out tomorrow - AND even though it obviously didn't work out the way any of us wanted I think all the talk about not winning the league etc is ridiculous.
Rodgers simply looked at the bigger picture and gambled today but when you look at the injuries we have he had one hand tied behind his back, Ralston would have played, Compper would have played in this game, Roberts or Forrest depending on who would have played on Thursday there, Griffiths would have at least started today's game as would Hayes. If we had a fully fit squad the team out there today would have been a lot different, he even had Rogic playing in Brown's position today!}
