That would be a good calibre of signing. Danish national team are in the Top 10 right now.

Nick Hammond confirmed as head scout from 1st July on an advisory basis with a view to making it permanent if we recruit well . hopefully a sign of things to come.

😂 Phlip. In all seriousness, what's this about?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 15:38:38
Not at all negative. If you can honestly say that a part term temporary trial summer job fills you with confidence and optimism that's great. If what's written is true the club can't even committ to his quality. b.

have we ever had a DOF? it could be that both parties are willing to see how it works.

Rodgers was a knee year rolling contract to start so will be similar to that. That's didn't exactly go badly so let's see what he's go and judge this time next year.

Phil give it a chance that's all unless you can see into the future and product failure . naw dibny think so.

The West Brom fans are laughing and warning us about this guy hope he produces.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 16:21:38
Is it not better to give him the job on a temp basis to see how it goes and who he brings in instead of giving him a 3 or 4 year deal and it turns out he signs a load of crap.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 16:22:07
This a recruitment based role, does this mean we won't see any new recruits til after this guys on board?

So once again not strengthening in enough time to negotiate champions league qualifiers 🤔

Or am I picking this up wrong?

I know we just won a treble treble but its worrying with all the players leaving and the ones who are gash.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 16:30:04
Talking about the announcement Phlip. Odd one. He's head of recruitment not a DoF bhoys.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 16:30:32
I'm more a fan of recruitment which identifies quality and people with talent for the job as opposed to having the ability to shift crap easily. Short term summer trials are for seasonal workers and fruit pickers. Bit retrospective recruiting a person to progress summer targets in July. What happened to congertons work?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 16:35:08
Johnbhoy, if they don't have the confidence in this guy to give him a contract then neither do I. This is not how a club of our size should operate.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 17:02:47
Any time I saw wb last year they had some decent players but it'll be nothing to do with this boy doesn't suit the narrative.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 17:58:58
A couple of months may not be long enough, but haven't never really had a proper D of F before it makes sense to me that we should experiment to see how the relationship between D o F works with manager and works with CEO . If we find both can work then we should continue.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 18:06:36
He's head of recruitment Chris doesn't appear he's dof.

20 Jun 2019 00:55:55
So with Lustig away who else has officially left the club?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

20 Jun 2019 06:51:19
Boyata, Gamboa, De Vries and Allan's contracts have expired. Technically Burke, Benkovic and Toljan were signed until the end of the month but won't return. Izzy's deal runs until the end of this month but I doubt he'll return either.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 07:19:00
Move on he’s another who doesn’t want to come here.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 02:41:38
Apparently Christopher Jullien is waiting for offers from England and Spain before he commits to anything regarding celtic, does that mean we've made a bid or is just hypothetical at this stage?
If this didn't go through id like to see us go for the likes of Ryan Porteous from Hibs, he seems a good player, physical, fast and good with the ball at his feet.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

20 Jun 2019 06:40:43
Unfortunately I think a lot of the players we are linked with are trying the same they will be using the fact we are after them to See if they can get a better offer in the pub league before they commit to us.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 06:50:04
A said last week it's becoming nearly impossible for Celtic to sign quality because they look to England first.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 08:53:20
Maybe need to put cut off dates on ALL offers to stop us being pissed about. But realistically players owe us nothing. We would all try and maximise out income if we had no emotional connection .

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 21:20:14
Mika confirms he’s away. Terrific free transfer and loyal servant. All the best PC Lustig.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

19 Jun 2019 21:31:03
Sad to see him depart, but he did so as a fan and will come back a legend for the 10. Anyone else in Glasgow nabbing a copper's lid wouldn't live to tell the tale. Viva Mika.

19 Jun 2019 21:39:54
All the best to the big man
Big shoes to fill.

Sad to see Lustig go he is a great player and a great servant to the cause.

He will still offer a lot at his next club.

See you for the 10 in a row party my friend 💚.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 22:57:56
Perfect example of a foreign player coming here and knowing what the club means to the fans! Became a big player on and off the park for us and will be welcome back any time! Think we all knew his time was up over the last 18 months or so but I would still have liked it handled better! Wish him nothing but the best wherever he goes and I’m sure we’ll see him again sooner rather than later supporting the team!

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 23:04:48
Well done to lustig what a fantastic servant he was for Celtic. It's the right time for him to go and best of luck to him for the future.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 23:22:31
Ain't it great seeing all these tributes to big Lustig, Halfway through the season he was getting pelters and being castigated for being slow and finished. None as fickle as football fans. Good luck to Mika wherever he goes. I for one am sorry to see him go as I thought he had rediscovered his mojo under Lennon.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 10:23:16
The man has been a wonderful servant to our club, and all the more remarkable that we got him free. He took to Celtic very quickly and our club certainly got under his skin. He's been our lucky charm in many ways as he's known nothing but success, but if he was honest with himself he probably knew his time was coming to a close. However, in my opinion, he merited at least another years contract, and for that experience both on the field and in that dressing room would have been vital over this coming season. I'm also sad that he didn't have the opportunity to say farewell to us. He's been remarkable for us and I wish him and his family nothing but the best. Officer Lustig, we salute you.

John Kennedy spoke earlier and said it’s going to be a couple of weeks before faces come in. If we were to lose Ajer or another defender in the pre season we could be down to the bare bones for the qualifiers.
I can see his point a little bit in the fact that we are back and some teams are just going off on holiday, but other sides have made signings, some significant signings . Was turnbull the top of our list? If so we move onto other targets, does that mean lesser options?

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 18:03:17
Same old bollocks then from Kennedy then. If we have another window like that total farce last summer then everyone at the club involved in transfers should be court martialed and sent to a dungeon somewhere.

My worst fear of Lenny being a total poodle willing to accept feck all is gathering pace.

We must be the worst team in football at transfer windows. feckin totally sick of our dithering and cheapskate p ish.

Agree4 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 18:58:37
John Kennedy making a fool of himself by trying to explain the issues with the transfer window and it could be a couple of weeks. Tell that to other teams who are already 4 and 5 players deep in recruitment.

What has gone on? Did we have nobody lined up to sign as soon as the window opened. Are we not all fully aware of the players that have been required for the last 3 windows.

We get mixed up in a farsical move for a kid that we did not even need and we have damaged our already poor ability to navigate a transfer window. When do we say stop?

Does Tierney, Eddy and McGregor leave this window with no acceptable explenation other than the fully expected. "the leaked transfer doc put us in a very difficult situation and this was the main reason why we have only 18 1st team players and 100mil in the bank blah blah blah.

As i say i fully expect the above excuse.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 20:51:17
Sorry what other teams Aberdeen hearts and sevco
Even without signings we would still have a stronger team
It’s hard but we must keep faith with the board and hope they make the signings the fans want?

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 22:07:41
Lennon on Celtic TV and here is his quote
We are looking to make some additions and it will be important to integrate them in as quickly as possible.

There is a huge amount of work going in and we hope we will get some positive news soon. ”
After what has just happened he best hope.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2019 02:45:42
Boss is a West Brom fan. When I asked his opinion he said "Crap. Came from Reading and that's why we are lumbered with Hal Robson Kanu on 50k a week" 😂.

So he will get pumped by Liverpool in his first game.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 00:58:38
He was going here all along I think he knew of the intrest and wouldn’t sign with us, just hope some news in some targets pop up soon bit quiet at mo.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 12:54:51
Same as last few transfer windows nothing early and nothing till it’s too late

Players should have been ready to sign quickly and 3 weeks till we play our first game with a squad 10 players down at least.

Dortmund, Real Madrid all had players prepared and signed ASAP to get used to their teammates god even Aberdeen had 4-5 players signed up.

Not one player linked with us so far has even been remotely exciting.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 19:22:00
Guys, I'll stick my neck out here. it's been reported that the Turnbull deal is off, I've been told it's on. Quietly confident the deal will be done.

Please let it be true it’s still on as I think this boy
Will be a talent also il believe it when Celtic come out at tell us.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 19:52:32
Don't think so bud. Some pretty strong sources seem to be saying it's off.
The club should have binned it on Friday.

Agree0 1Disagree

18 Jun 2019 20:12:04
I hope Turnbull still signs. If he dosn't then it is down to the agent not the club. This could make clear to other players and agents that the club is bigger than anyone person.
The agent concerned may find that other players will think twice before joinng him as Celtic are clearly saying we will not be messed about; take it or leave it.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 20:15:49
Well our transfer window has kicked off well, Lennon knew what we needed why are we dragging our heels over signings or is it typical Celtic wait to see if we are in champions league proper to spend.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 20:17:38
I thought Derek riordan was going to be a super talent and look how that turned out.

As much as I think the wee guy has bags of potential also, Celtic as a club can't be held to ransom by a 19 year old (who's only played half a season) and his agent.

For me, we move on.

Agree4 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 20:31:57
How's it lennys fault if the player doesn't want to come there's both I g lenny can do we're supposed to be after the French cb so it's up to the money men to go the deal not lenny.

18 Jun 2019 20:59:34
ok Dafa: what make you come out with a statement like that?

18 Jun 2019 21:30:31
He’s away to Norwich.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 22:07:04
Guys get real. How could we possibly sign him now after pulling out of the deal? HH.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 22:12:17
Regardless of how good he is right now or just potentially. Lennon clearly wanted to sign him. The Club acted in an unprofessional manner by publicly stating where they were DURING contract discussions. This put extra unnecessary pressure on the young boy and now it looks to have backfired and we look like idiots.
Board better act like the professional club we are in future and keep negotiations in house until a deal is either dead or concluded.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 22:28:39
GGGG that's pure nonsense. Board has got this one spot on.
This player and his agent have tried to use our club as a bargaining chip to put him down south.
The board also had to keep the fans up to date because if they hadn't the fans would have wanted to burn park head to the ground with the board in it.

Agree7 1Disagree

18 Jun 2019 23:04:37
Well said kev, totally agree 👍🏼.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 00:02:28
Norwich sign him loan him back to Motherwell Come January or even before.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 08:17:57
Kev what’s nonsense? Lenny DID want to sign him. You think the board wouldn’t have been able to say we have had a bid accepted and at the moment we are in negotiations with the player and his agent?
Then if he went elsewhere they can release statement saying they offered him 10x what he was on at Motherwell and he was reluctant to sign therefore we have ended negotiations. Please tell me all the other clubs who make it public what a player from another team are asking for in terms of wages during negotiations when deal is ongoing?
This is confidential information that allows other potential clubs to know what you are willing to pay.
Norwich prob though he was a cert to sign for Celtic and only entered the race when it became clear what he was asking for is a standard wage for a player who’s fee is £3m and that Celtic wouldn’t pay it.
If it was private and deal wasn’t struck then the board could of said a BPL team offered far higher wages due to the finances down there and we would of said fair enough.
Now it’s clear we are offering small wages to players like Lustig who will prob leave after being shafted by the board.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 11:30:19
£3m Kouassi apparently on £1.2k per week. Just because it's standard in England doesn't mean we should pay it. I don't imagine Edouard demanded a £9m player's wages otherwise he wouldn't be in Glasgow.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 15:46:44
You've seen that info too Mike. I found some of it unbelievable when it had gamboa on £31k.

19 years old kid want to earn megabucks rather than work hard and earned it, no problem. He can do problems elsewhere. ther are plenty players like Bain who apriciated what he is having at the moment here.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 19:25:53
What a carry on how much time and effort has went into this fares of trying to sign Turnbull surely these details of contracts would have been discussed to test the water before going all out to get the player. What waste off Celtics time. If this is how our window is starting how is it going to end? What a joke what has the footballing world turned into when a 19 year old and his reps try’s to take their new employer to the cleaners in term of their contract.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 19:27:10
I agree Kev apparently no English club have came forward to be interested in him so I hope his greed gets the better of him and he remains with Motherwell.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 19:27:39
Gutted we haven’t signed him but if it’s down to the agents
Trying to get more money fair play to Celtic walking away
. Now let’s push on and get our targets in (if we have any)

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 19:31:44
Obviously making demands that the club think are ridiculous silly lad could of made a name at celtic and got a big move once proven but nope thinks he’s a superstar already.

Glad this has been settled. If he has his heart set on Barnsley then good luck to him. Seriously, good luck.

I keep seeing people trying to absolve the player and saying it's all down to the agent.
Who employs the agent?
The agent can't knock back a bit without players say so.

Agree0 1Disagree

18 Jun 2019 20:34:57
At the end of the day if he really wanted to join he would have told the agree that he was delighted with the deal and happ to sign. Clear the were both pushing for more money. Thank God it's over.

18 Jun 2019 20:54:40
Spot on kev the player will have the final say.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 21:02:26
Celtic are calling his bluff. They've noted that no other offer is on the table so they've basically carried through on their take it or leave it threat, and good on them for that. Chances are he will either go to England or come crawling back to Celtic, but it will be on Celtic's terms not his.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 21:07:21
This is simply Celtic carrying out their take it or leave it threat. They've noted that no other concrete offer is on the table so they've called his bluff. He'll either end up at a lower league English side or he'll come crawling back to Celtic. If its the latter then it will be on Celtics terms, not his.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 17:05:15
Bizarre story of the young Celtic cb who's apparently being chased by Bayern Liam Morrison how the he'll did this happen he could go missing over there would be better staying where he is.

He's my nephew.

I disagree Mally. There are lots of young British players heading to Germany right now and thriving. They really believe in youth over there. Bayern in particular have a great coaching set-up.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 18:05:32
Get what your saying jim but imo he'd have a better chance with us it would be some achievement if he broke through that set up . good luck to the kid just wish we could have kept him.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 18:33:40
For my sins I don't keep up to date much with the youths. Can't help but feel it might be one that's getting away if the likes of Bayern are keen to snap him up.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 19:59:11
Goodluck to the lad. A few clubs have been trying to sign him up since he was 14. What a football education he ll get at Bayern, our loss but hopefully Scotland’s gain.
