Jozo passes Both parts of medical clubs still in talks about the fee.

Celtic supposedly sounding out David Moyes for the summer as RD is on a year rolling contract.


1.) 04 Mar 2016 21:07:23
Read a few times today that he's on a rolling contract is it definite? I know Lennon was, hopefully he is!

2.) 04 Mar 2016 22:22:15
He is on a rolling contract, for a year, so it doesn't matter if we were to sack him tomorrow or in July - he still gets 12 months salary! Every day is the start of a new 1 year rolling contract! It suits the club better in that if he is sacked they aren't liable for say 3/ 4 years! If the manager gives his notice he has to stay for 1 year! Or the club he's going to has to pay the years salary to Celtic if they agree to let him go early!

3.) 05 Mar 2016 11:18:02
Not a chance of Moyes taking the job especially with the budget he'd get!

4.) 05 Mar 2016 11:36:51
Why don't you tell us your thoughts Des - you don't agree with anyone else! You said I have all the answers, well I don't but I've got an opinion, what's yours? Are you enjoying the way we're playing? Give us a bit of your insight - I love fans having different opinions to me, or in general, as long as they back it up though!

5.) 05 Mar 2016 11:51:43
Well I'd never call for a managers head when the team are top of the league and with a home draw in the cup quarters finals maybe that's what sets me aside from some. What sort of message would it send to a prospective new manager when his predecessor is sacked when at the top? Oh and Delphic if your waiting on Moyes taking the job you're in for a very long wait. He would only take job it if was a very very very last resort.

6.) 05 Mar 2016 14:02:17
I'm not waiting for Moyes - you said I knew everything, well I gave 10 names last week and he wasn't on the list, so get it right!

7.) 05 Mar 2016 15:02:17
So let's hear the 10 names. Most I suspect are out of a job at the moment so their bound to be big names!

8.) 05 Mar 2016 18:52:09
Prandelli, Bielsa, Rudi Garcia, Hitzfield, Seedorf, Mazzarri, Favre, Yakin were the 8 I said were out a job. Hiddink and Marcus Weinzeirl will be available in June! I know most would say no, but you never know! My point was there are good managers available! There's also plenty other managers that aren't seen as glamorous, - Southampton went for Pochettino who had been sacked by Espanyol. Watford took a chance on Flores, and Ranieri was begging clubs in England for a job. Watford and Leeds both blanked him even though they have Italian owners! I think we need someone with experience, at least someone who has done it in a big league where there is pressure! There was no pressure on Ronny at Stromgodset. Celtic is another world, because you do something at a small club doesn't mean you can just replicate it across the board! I don't like saying it but Warburton has done a better job in 6 months than Ronny has done with an extra year!

9.) 05 Mar 2016 19:00:21
If we didn't spend any money in the summer but brought in a top manager on a top salary I'd be happy! It's not just about us being top of the league, it's the product we're watching, the progress we've made this season, and most disturbing for me is we have had 2 players who have done themselves justice! The West Brom fans aren't happy at staying up, they are raging at the football Pulis has them playing! It's not black and white! Well Ronny says these very words! If you're happy though it's cool, but don't be taking hissy fits because I'm not and don't agree with you!

10.) 05 Mar 2016 21:56:53
If we had pushed the boat out we could have got Bilic a few years ago, he said he was leaving Croatia and spoke about Celtic, he ended up at Besiktas months later. The manager is the most important person at the club by far, so if you have to pay extra and save money somewhere else it's worth it.

11.) 05 Mar 2016 23:52:06
Said it before: if we were (genuinely) looking, I'd like us to go all out to get Yakin but even if we got him I think we'd find a lot of the same issues -- both in the boardroom and the stands -- would still be there.

12.) 06 Mar 2016 14:34:08
Hitzfield Hiddink pmsl. As for the rest I take it most are out of a job at the moment. Speaks volumes.

13.) 06 Mar 2016 16:56:21
Whilst I agree that most are pie in the sky, being out of a job doesn't mean anything. Guardiola was out of a job when he went to Bayern. Ranieri was out of a job when he went to Leicester. Klopp was out of a job when he went to Liverpool. And so on.

14.) 06 Mar 2016 18:15:56
I only remember you posting 3 times Des and you just hate everything else! I said to you the last time, offer up something! You don't seem to know too much, - those other managers that are out of work have good pedigrees, more importantly good experience in big leagues at big clubs! Circumstances dictate why certain managers are out of work, it's about timing. We could get a manager now that we might never normally get in a lifetime because of his situation! You would never get out of bed in the morning listening to your sort. Hiddink had agreed to come to us before, my point was he might prefer it to retirement when he leaves Chelsea. Hitzfield has been out of work since he left the Switzerland job a while ago - how do you know he wouldn't take it. What would you prefer - Forrest and Mulgrew getting a new contract or getting a top manager? I've kept it simple for you! And by the way I'd have liked nothing better that Ronny to be doing better, or even agreeing to stay under a Bielsa or another old wise head but I don't think he'd accept that! You tell me - if we played Molde again tomorrow in a qualifier, (they are only a few months away) would you be confident, I'd be less confident!



02 Feb 2016 14:05:36
ED do you know if any truth about the Michael O Neil story? Celtic supposed to be sounding him out For the Summer?


{Ed007's Note - Well he's Irish so that should be enough for some fans.}

1.) 02 Feb 2016 14:44:18

2.) 02 Feb 2016 16:24:28
Cheers mate.

3.) 02 Feb 2016 22:04:06
Haha true ed!
If efe ambrose was Irish, then most would hail him as a messiah.
What do u make of the Nesbitt loan deal? I think it could be a cracking move for him.

{Ed007's Note - I'm pleased for the lad but I'd rather he was getting game time with us.}



30 Nov 2015 15:18:39
Well close to the winter window opening wonder who Parks and PL has picked out for us now?


1.) 30 Nov 2015 16:26:21
Hoping to get rid of some the players taking up wages to free up space for the summer.

2.) 30 Nov 2015 20:48:38
Still too much deadwood, we desperately need a clear out.

3.) 30 Nov 2015 22:18:04
I would say straight away get rid of:

Blackett, boerrigter, stokes

then we need to look to replace players with better options like Ciftci and GMS. Maybe these replacements can come from young players stepping up.

The main issue for me though is our GK and CB.

With Izzy, Teirney, Lustig and Janko for full backs, plus ambrose to cover. We should concentrate on finding a partner for Simunovic, still unclear whether or not boyata will step up to the mark. Gordon isn't good enough either unfortunately.

The only positive of not getting through the EL group may be that we can let players go in january and not need to rush to replace them as the squad size won't need to be as big.

4.) 30 Nov 2015 23:47:40
From what I've gathered from the agm and and our yearly spend spin. We have recived part payments for departing players and that is all that has been spent. The rest of the fees have been counted and included in subsequent years accounts as income and have offset losses in other areas. Route one accountancy from Pl. In his spreadsheet he doesn't have to risk a thing to keep us in the black.
Don't expect anything in January. No El money and depreciation of assets value (players) due to not making an advertising impact (pumped in europe) .

5.) 01 Dec 2015 13:28:42
Michael O'Halloran!

6.) 01 Dec 2015 19:49:37
Reckon we will only get loan players in which I used to moan about but when you see some of the dross we have got in over the last year or so then it's not necessarily bad as majority have been poor with Denayer the exception so just as well they were loans and not permanent deals!

7.) 03 Dec 2015 20:23:02
I'm expecting a very dull window.

8.) 06 Dec 2015 19:56:53
I reckon some of us could be pleasantly surprised either in Jan or summer window .
My reasoning is the board take, maybe an optimistic opinion, of what is needed . When it is obvious that we are lacking in personnel they find the funds to make a few purchases .
I know that no matter who and how many they buy there will be some who will say not enough quality or quantity .

9.) 08 Dec 2015 01:23:42
January is a very difficult window to attract or entice really good players - especially if their clubs are in European competition or going for trophies domestically.
We might do what we did last January and look to the Scottish leagues although we do have Christie already coming and Allen seems to have broken through?
I think if we manage to offload the unsettled players. We could well bring in a couple in areas that need improving?

10.) 09 Dec 2015 14:34:16
This is what i've heard

These are our main targets for the January window

Fabrice N'Sakala - Anderlect
Marko Leskovic - Rijeka
Michael O'Halloran - St Johnstone
Lennart Thy - St Pauli

Also hoping to get some out the door too.

Ambrose (only if John Souttar is signed for a mimimal fee)
Johansen (If we get a decent offer)
Ciftci (out on loan)



10 Nov 2015 22:05:21
Ed do you know who we are supposed to looking at in Portugal?


{Ed007's Note - No mate.}

1.) 10 Nov 2015 23:16:24
Thanks it will probably be another dud anyway.

{Ed007's Note - That's what I like to see, Tony, a good bit of positivity to give us all a boost. :=o

Not celtic related and probably a stupid question but I just got the end of the Aberdeen game today and I noticed one of them did not have any name or number on the shirt is that breaching the rules?


1.) 19 Feb 2017 15:26:34
Happens quite a lot if someone has had their strip torn or blood has got on the top.

2.) 19 Feb 2017 18:18:53
I see Hodson doesn't have a club crest on his Sevco shirt, must be embarrassed the boy.

3.) 20 Feb 2017 10:01:46
Can't be accused of not playing for the badge if you don't have one! lol.



01 Jan 2017 15:00:29
Happy New Year to every one on here and your Family's I wish you all good health and Happiness And to Ed keep up the good work mate and you and your Family all the best and Happiness for 2017.


{Ed007's Note - Happy New Year, Tony, all the best to you and your family.}



05 Dec 2016 12:11:39
Looks like we will be bringing in or hope to be bringing in more than one player this opening do you guys think they will be squad players or first team and if first team what position?


1.) 05 Dec 2016 14:18:04
Tony2B: Must be a 1st team player, we have more than enough squad players to fill a bus, let alone a subs bench.
The only difficulty is getting the actual player you want.

2.) 05 Dec 2016 15:00:36
The ideal scenario would be to get rid of 5, 6, 7 of the guys we don't need and use the money to pay 2 or 3 guys with higher quality. In January that's a very difficult thing to do though.

3.) 05 Dec 2016 15:09:33
I agree with you on that but looking at the team not sure what position needs stenthend the most? For a first team player being realistic who do you leave out Gordon? Or go for a better box to box player? Or both?

4.) 05 Dec 2016 15:27:50
We have good track record in January window so I expect 1-2 1st team signings.

5.) 05 Dec 2016 15:35:18
BR must know who/ what type of player he wants, I she looking to get a perm replacement for PR as I think he is looking to get GMS fit for that position (no cost) , So for me it has to be a Mid player and a top class 1 at that.

6.) 05 Dec 2016 18:06:15
For me I want B R to buy one or two players who would be amongst the top five players in our squad come the summer . If we we can move on four or five players that Brendan has no intention of playing all the better.

7.) 05 Dec 2016 20:40:09
I agree with you there, Oldbhoy, would be much better with a much smaller first team pool, some managers are obsessedw wiwith squad rotation, and having a big pool of players means they change the team every week, just so members of the pool get a game, to the detriment of teamwork and team bonding, I know you previously supported this crazy squad rotation system, and maybe you still do, I wouldn't be in the least surprised.

8.) 05 Dec 2016 21:06:00
For me the question is
-will we make the CL with the current squad?
-do we gamble on the answer being yes in order to attract a better player with the prospect of CL football.
-is there anyone available and willing to come who would raise the standard of play?

For example if we signed a CM (the box to box type) would that me Stuart Armstrong would be benched? Or would it be better to wait and see if Armstrong can do the business?

I reckon a first pick keeper would benefit the squad
And I would love to see a permanent contract for pay roberts.

9.) 05 Dec 2016 22:27:14
Think we probsbly have more than enough at the moment, think the only thing we lack is a creative midfield player, can't remember his name but he was egyptian and played for basle a few years ago, someone lije him, the only thing is cover for injuriesi think big what's his name, will be a superstar, if he can stay clear of injuries, but I think Brendan might have a surprise orvtwo up his sleeve.

10.) 06 Dec 2016 10:41:49
IMO for the league we are more than covered just being honest But for a run in Europe we need to strengthen we won't win the cups but we could have a decent run by strengthening now.



25 Nov 2016 16:54:35
I know it's a one off game on Sunday but I wonder what that BAD LOOSER to Celtic excuses are going to be this time for sure he won't say better team won we were out classed the full game we could not get near them.


1.) 25 Nov 2016 21:53:51
Maybe he will use the bread man's famous "there isn't much between the sides".

2.) 25 Nov 2016 23:10:15
Let's not get too cocky lads it's a cup final n Aberdeen are no mugs.

3.) 26 Nov 2016 11:45:12
The old saying 'pride comes before a fall', is an old saying because that's what happens, pride comes before a fall, if the team are'nt 100% concentrating, and treating it as a must win game, anything can happen, they might be a bit deflated after the Barcelona game, but thinking Aberdeen will be a walkover will B a mistake.

4.) 26 Nov 2016 13:04:56
I would have thought that Aberdeen will be well up for the match, so we will need to show the same determination as them.
Where I think that we are a lot better this season is that you don't look at games and think that the opposition are hungrier than us, that wasn't always the case in the last few seasons.
We weren't really unlucky against Barcelona, so there won't be a feeling of being robbed, equally we weren't hammered by them, so our confidence won't be affected too much. If we play to the same level as we have done so far this season then we won't be too far away.

5.) 26 Nov 2016 14:05:17
They've had all week to prepare and that wee slug will have them well pumped-up, so we will have to be on top form to win that cup.
Never taken any cup-tie for granted since I saw big Jock's side lose to Dunfermline in 68 (my first ever time seeing a defeat) and the LC final of 1971 against the Jags when we lost 4-1.
There have been a good few cup disappointments since then and although we are hot favourites, anything can happen (including honest mistakes) - However, on our game, we are the best in the land.

6.) 26 Nov 2016 16:48:13
For sure the sheep will come out n try n get in about us n kick us off the park, that's their way. As broony said after the win at pittodrie we stood up to it n that's what I'm sure we will do tomorrow. You win the battles n earn the right to play n i can see us winning 3 1.
Hard game as all games against the sheep, specifically in any final but I see us being too strong for them. Roberts n forrest in if sinclair is out, other than that I'd start Roberts rogic n sinclair.
Hail hail.



22 Nov 2016 14:43:48
Aijurier band from entering the UK for the Arsenal game WTF What about us? Why don't they ban the full Barcelona team? Where is the sporting integrity there?


1.) 22 Nov 2016 17:04:45
Tony-you've lost me my friend-can you explain to the hard of thinking in Airdrie please 🍀.

2.) 22 Nov 2016 19:25:20
It's a joke PSG had a player stopped from coming into the uk to play arsenal for an alleged criminal offence But I guess not so funny if you have to explain it Lol.

3.) 22 Nov 2016 19:27:02
And not saying Barcelona are full of criminals.

4.) 22 Nov 2016 21:54:57
Well you all are experts in tax law get a few of them banned lol.

5.) 23 Nov 2016 03:25:46
Not full of criminals? What about the murdering they committed last time we played them? Not to mention the unbearable torture they inflicted on us supporters.

6.) 23 Nov 2016 07:18:41
Messi is a tax dodger surely he qualifies as a criminal.
Is mascherano not 1 too.

7.) 23 Nov 2016 14:07:32
Suarez is always biting people that's ABH.

8.) 23 Nov 2016 15:04:12
Smokey has got me thinking why is tax avoidance treated as a lesser crime than say a drunken assault stealing millions should be considered worse should it not.

9.) 23 Nov 2016 14:20:30
And that's why we pay our taxes and you didn't.

10.) 23 Nov 2016 16:12:58
Suarez for his biting antics
Neymar dodgy transfer dealings
Messi tax affairs

Ha ha that would be one way to stop this forward line. Here is hoping for another great night tonight, if we play as we can then who knows?

11.) 23 Nov 2016 17:07:50
Maybe if the Scottish electorate had voted for Independence instead of listening to the English Tory lies, backed - up by the poodle Browne, we would have our immigration services based in Scotland . They may have looked at the White collar criminals in a different light.
The fact that Barca's three criminals are welcome in Britain and a man charged with been involved in a pub brawl isn't, shows exactly what is wrong with our capitalist Tory Country.
