Second bid turned down.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Jul 2019 18:46:37
Maybe arsenal have us confused with the gullibles 25 mill or no deal, are they stupid or what.

14 Jul 2019 20:20:28
Wouldn’t it be great if Celtic and tierney could come to an agreement were we look after him on the best terms possible, keeping him at the club for life? I know it’s wishful thinking on my part but I’d love to see tierney in the mcstay, Boyd, brown, mould going on to captain the club for the rest of his career.

14 Jul 2019 20:44:49
People might be surprised by this but I don't want KT staying in Scottish football his whole career.
I want to see him reach the very top of world football and he isn't going to do that in Scotland.

14 Jul 2019 21:04:08
Arsenal offered 20m upfront with 5 million in addons celtic want 25 million upfront and a 10/ 20% sell on clause or so I have been told.

14 Jul 2019 21:24:53
I agree with you kev, I'd like to see him at a top club in a top league, just not to sure if arsenal is the right club for him at the moment.

14 Jul 2019 21:31:06
Wulie the gunners are still a massive club who play a style that suits him. 2 years down there and some of the super powers of football will be queuing up to sign him.

14 Jul 2019 21:50:27
cannot see them getting cl football, and don't come across as an ambitious club,

14 Jul 2019 21:51:35
Is it just me or are Arsenal starting to be a pain in the farce? They are acting the goat. 25m means 25m.

14 Jul 2019 22:04:54
Got to agree wullie, arsenal are always the bridesmaid and never the bride in recent years. It’s a shame there isn’t more clubs chasing him but being injured hasn’t help the transfer chances of KT. I’d love him to stay for another year or two and then get his big move.

14 Jul 2019 22:05:49
Well said, Kev. I always imagined KT playing in Spain: fancied him to take over from Marcelo specifically, tho' I'm no fan of the team. Total fantasy? Time will tell. I just hope that he choses his move away from Celtic carefully.

14 Jul 2019 22:42:59
It’s a bit hypocritical for our fans to complain about Arsenal trying to low ball us over the fee for Tierney. We have low balled almost every other team in the Scottish premiership over the years. It’s just the way that the market works. Having said all that, i thought that KT would be here for at least nine.

14 Jul 2019 23:53:11
People going on about champions league as if that will be a major factor.
6 games at best against big clubs.
Down there he will be playing against the likes of Liverpool man city man Utd Chelsea spurs. That's more games against big clubs right there.
He performs in they games week in week out they will beat down his do it to sign him just like they did VVD
The gunners are still a real big club and definitely a step above the likes of Southampton.

15 Jul 2019 00:59:15
Kev. well said, buddy! No one wants to hold the bhoy back. He can reach the very top! Pay the money and he goes with everyone's best wishes. Hopefully be back one day.

15 Jul 2019 04:51:43
I don’t think anyone is doubting the level of football in the EPL, or how big a club Arsenal are. If arsenal really want tierney then I’m pretty sure by now they must know what’s required to make the deal happen. Their first offer was a complete joke. Celtic clearly are open to offers hence why there’s been no statement from the club saying he’s going nowhere so you’d imagine lawwell must’ve told arsenal what’s required to move the situation forward yet they come back with an offer unacceptable to the club. Celtic hold all the aces in this, tierney is Celtic daft and yeah probably would love to go test himself in the EPL, but I don’t think KT would be battering down lawells door causing a scene to push for a move unless Celtic get what they want. The boys under contract till 2023, it’s simple as far as I can see, match the £25 million in a structured way that suits Celtic or he goes nowhere. surely arsenal (or any other club who might be interested now know celtics stance.

15 Jul 2019 14:33:07
At least it's not just us that does business the way we do. Wonder if there's an Arsenal rumour page going daft the way they're dragging this out.

15 Jul 2019 18:25:46
The add ons were 2.5m for arsenal winning the World Cup and trump marrying a Mexican2.5m for.

13 Jul 2019 23:01:15
News just broke that arsenal have offered £25 million for kt.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 23:19:26
Good money but would be heartbreaking to see him go, love KT, he deserves his big money move. Hopefully he’ll come back when he’s established himself as the best full back in the world 🍀.

13 Jul 2019 23:27:14
If it's true then it will be sad to see KT go if it happens. However the lad deserves his chance at a higher level and all the best to him. He will be valued at 50 million plus after a season in the EPL. Great money for the club too.

13 Jul 2019 23:45:55
Well if true it’s now up to Celtic and Tierney now Arsenal have match the price let’s see.

14 Jul 2019 00:36:56
A cracking fee for us. Yes a true Celt but what’s to say he will come back just as good? Take the money improve the squad all round and secure the 10 for the club and fans.

14 Jul 2019 00:52:53
will he pass a medical though?

14 Jul 2019 01:18:28
We seem too have gone quiet on the recruitment front since this deal has gone quiet as much as I don't want it too happen if it facilitates 4 of 5 first teamers coming in thenit has too happen 🙁.

14 Jul 2019 02:32:51
We all knew he would be going.
We paid £3m for Boli to start and not sit on the bench.

14 Jul 2019 05:01:18
Still reckon £25 million is too cheap, but that seems to be the figure branded that will make this move happen, so in that case unless it’s £25 million up front with add ons he wouldn’t be going anywhere. I do realise some will say £25 million is fantastic money, but 1 good season down there and tierney will be quoted in the £50 million bracket. The money going around down there us ridiculous so lawwell better stand strong in these negotiations and get the absolute best deal possible for him. I’m still a bit frustrated in players coming in ie a new RB. If this deal for tierney goes through I’m fully expecting another 3/ 4 quality signings to come in.

14 Jul 2019 06:12:19
I’m a bit gutted to be honest, I wanted him here for the ten. Like another poster said earlier, how can he pass a medical unless he is actually fit and just wasn’t training to push through a move. I can’t see how we were told he still can’t train due to the hernia op and now had the pubic bone problem to passing a medical potentially two days later 🤷‍♂️.

14 Jul 2019 06:36:50
Gutted if KT leaving.
Anyone think we could go back for Castagne again if we receive £25m for KT or has that ship sailed?

14 Jul 2019 08:10:48
I great loss for us but can't help thinking it's going to be tough for him at Arsenal. They won't be winning anything any time soon and could easily drop out top 6 this season. I can even see Judas being the one to do it. I hope he stays for another year and gets a better offer and doesn't feel this is his only option.

14 Jul 2019 10:01:48
guys i will be gutted if kt leaves. but i believe he will be leaving for more than we think. i believe he is leaving to ensure we get 10iar because with his transfer money we can now kick on to a different level. it will break this wee mans heart to walk away and i believe he WILL orchestrate the green brigade again. thanks wee man for giving your young life to our club and hurry back please. hail hail.

14 Jul 2019 10:31:29
Chances are he’s off, I appreciate the league is bigger and better and he quite possibly deserves the chance to improve himself. However I can’t quite see him running back up Wembley steps with blood pouring from his mouth with an arsenal shirt on, to celebrate with fans and team mates. He will never have what he has now with us, I think he knows that as well.

14 Jul 2019 11:51:49
I think too many people have jumped the gun previously with these rumours. I for one will take everything with a pinch of salt from now.
KT was apparently leaving for far less than what was quoted 3 weeks ago by the rags!
“The deal was imminent” as they said then it went quiet.
Now that a new supposed bid of “25m” is here every Celtic fan is getting worked up again. I don’t even believe it is 25 all up front. Again some probable derisory bid of 20+ add ons
Wouldn’t trust that shower of tam shankers in a million years to report the truth, so until Celtic confirm it I’ll not worry about it too much.

14 Jul 2019 14:28:42
Like everyone else I would be gutted to lose KT and until he actually goes I still have hope that he will stay for the 10. Surely 25m up front with add-ons only means that we would be willing to sell therefore Arsenal can speak with KT about a transfer but ultimately it is his decision whether to go or not as he has a contract with us.

14 Jul 2019 17:47:00
Rumours now circulating that Celtic have rejected Arsenal’s bid of “25m”
Again, across social media so many Celtic pages and supporters getting worked up about this without knowing all the details.
We, as a club, have stated we will only sell at what we believe is the correct price (which nobody actually knows apart from our board) and also have said that we don’t even need to sell.
In other rumours, KT has apparently told a friend he no longer wishes to speak to Arsenal and wants to stay at Celtic (so who really knows now? )
I’m going to go with my gut on this and I think the arsenal deal won’t happen. But if it does happen it will be the best deal for Celtic and the player possible.
Keep the faith HH.

13 Jul 2019 19:24:13
Heard a rumour about Danny Simpson signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 19:48:24
Think he was at the game the day, he is 32 now but bags of experience, not ideal but could maybe do a job. Plus wouldn't cost anything.

13 Jul 2019 19:57:02
Good player but older than Lustig. I guess we’ll see.

13 Jul 2019 20:34:11
I haven't seen what he was like Last year. Remember him a few years ago and was good. I would say if we get him we should be aiming to get someone else with potential as well.

13 Jul 2019 21:18:37
We need a right back that can defend, I didn't know much about Simpson, so I looked on Wikipedia, it says he is a defensive right back that doesn't venture forward much, but is good defensively, that was Lustiqs failing as he got older, he looked ok going forward but was worse and worse at the defensive stuff, much like Tavernier at the other lot, I want a right back that can defend, I don't care what else he can do.

13 Jul 2019 21:49:43
Aindoh I think tat was the fault of Rodgers asking lustig to bomb forward when he no longer had the pace to get back.
After Lennon came back in and told Lustig he didn’t need to get forward so much I think there was a major improvement in his defending again.

13 Jul 2019 22:38:00
Don't agree Kev, Lustiq just couldn't handle the defensive chores any more, is easier to run forward and put the opposition under pressure, but he couldn't react fast enough defensively when a pacy forward was having a go, when you get older is hard to admit to yourself, you are getting older, and then you have all this blind loyalty to the club, (talking about the Lustiq supporters) , who just won't admit, that he isn't good enough anymore, probably the same people who are criticizing Lawell, for not spending X millions to bring in over paid, under performing, but big name Mercanaries.

14 Jul 2019 00:14:49
Has he still got the legs for it? never seen him play that I can think of.

14 Jul 2019 00:38:57
Wikipedia says he can defend - get s grip

He’s been freed and no one wants him.

14 Jul 2019 05:26:15
I agree with Kev, there was a huge improvement in lustig defending when Lennon took over from Rodgers and while I’ve been screaming out for new quality RB to be brought in, I do feel lustig could maybe have been a more than capable understudy to a new RB. However lustig gone now as have gamboa and toljan ( which in my opinion had to happen) both weren’t good enough, however what it has done is left us with nothing at RB. yes ralston is there but does Lennon really rate him? Can he stay fit long enough to challenge for a place? It’s ok letting 3 RBs go but it’s a position we’ve looked to strengthen for a few years now and badly struggled to do so. Surely there’s a quality RB out there somewhere more than happy to come to a club the size of ours? I don’t know who I’d go for that’s our scouting networks job to identify targets but for me I’d forget the over inflated prices of players from down south and be looking around the Austrian, Belgian, Dutch leagues etc for more value for money.

14 Jul 2019 12:54:59

13 Jul 2019 00:13:05
Looks like KT won't be going anywhere this window as his hip troubles have flared up again meaning he could miss beginning of the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2019 05:56:41
I’ll be happy if he stays Kev, hope he gets injury and pain free soon. good thing is we’ve now got boli in and providing he stays fit along with Hayes we’re covered In that position. Hopefully we can make progress soon in the RB area. Seen Lennon saying he’d like to bring two in for that position, hopefully sooner rather than later.

13 Jul 2019 09:26:49
Not to mention Gutman who I’ve been impressed with in pre-season, however would expect him to be sent out on loan again to gain experience.

13 Jul 2019 10:11:20
Tompo88 don't think we have a work permit for him do We?

13 Jul 2019 11:23:51
I got this injury Osteitis pubis, basically the pubic muscle come away from the pelvis, I never played for nearly a year, got treatment a Rosshall, Cortisone injections and physio, the muscle needs to grow back on, you can`t run, it`s very painful, the best think to do is rest but it does get better, slow recovery, KT will not play till next year.

13 Jul 2019 11:59:42
Never realised that Kev.

13 Jul 2019 13:52:32
Here Fred Perry, with an injury like that were you looking for" new balls please"? 😜👍🍀.

14 Jul 2019 10:41:56
Looks like I was wrong eh!

12 Jul 2019 09:48:16
This Israeli lad is not the answer, no where near, buying someone for the sake of it is bad business.
So many more options out there, yet it seems that we are entering a panic buy situation, we've had a good start to signings and releases, don't go backward already, we have until September to recruit the correct players, another CB, a RB, another RB on loan, and a decent CAM, along with a striker on loan.

Yes we need the RB position solved before more champions league qualifiers.
Get Ntcham and Rogic sold, and use that money to bolster the team, we would probably fill all required positions with the money generated from those two being sold, sell Ntcham (12m) and Rogic (8m) , 20m is enough to play with, and keep KT for pushing for 10IAR.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 11:04:36
Has he signed.

12 Jul 2019 11:14:36
I asked you on an earlier post but you didn't answer.
How often have you seen the big Israeli lad?
Also how do we sell ntcham and rogic if no one bids for them?

12 Jul 2019 11:59:11
I've not seen much of him but what I have seen of him he is average at best, bang average.
Asking price likely set too high for Ntcham, shouldn't be a problem offloading him, Rogic different, I'm sure plenty teams are aware of his injuries, Italy would be ideal for him, even swap for a great RB if possible.

12 Jul 2019 12:19:17
Why you getting your knickers in a twist if he's no even signed and al hazard a guess you've never seen him or if you did it was against us.

12 Jul 2019 12:24:46
Callum patterson in at right back and use him as your back up target man if we are chasing a game. Big physical player, has experience and won't break the bank.

The boy Cadden at Mwell also decent on the right.

Too many fans just get excited at exotic names and big price tags.

12 Jul 2019 12:33:53
Price set to high? Your having a laugh.
This is a player who has played I the Italian top league and our top league plus European experience.
Look at the money players with less than half the experience he has are going for. Even French ed cost 9 million.
15 million is a fair price for him.

12 Jul 2019 13:01:23
Paterson and cadden my god we're struggling now caddens a winger and Paterson is mince.

12 Jul 2019 13:31:13
Anybody with some common sense will see Paterson and cadden are bang average for teams far below our level, we're needing solid players who suit there positions not somebody who can just fill in, that's when mistakes will happen in high pressure games.
I think for a quality right back and another box to box midfielder if ntcham does go we would need to spend about 10-13m, I like rogic, he's probably the most technically gifted player we have but he can't last 90 minutes so I would probably keep him for certain games and bring somebody else in who will get up and down and link the play.

12 Jul 2019 13:38:45
I actually think Patterson is a decent player but does he not struggling with injuries quite often.

12 Jul 2019 13:50:21
He's no realky a rb last to. e a saw him with Cardiff he was playing up front and he's bang average.

12 Jul 2019 14:18:13
He was put up front because they had an injury crisis. He's been a left back for years and years.

12 Jul 2019 14:51:18
Kev83, who are you talking about when you said " played in Italian top league, our league"?

12 Jul 2019 15:11:23
Ntcham, wyllie67.

12 Jul 2019 15:20:08
We need a right back that can defend, Lustiq was past it, up against nippy wingers, he made Kent look like a world beater,

12 Jul 2019 15:34:47
Ntcham mate.

12 Jul 2019 15:56:16
Kev Paterson has never been a lb he was used up front by Cardiff the majority of the time and rb at hearts and even Scotland and imo he's average.

12 Jul 2019 16:28:55
Mally it was meant to say RB but phone changed it because I've been writing out LBs for ages.
He move to RB at hearts and has played most his games down there as one. He's also played CDM and CM for Cardiff.

12 Jul 2019 17:36:03
Cool, I thought it was someone were looking at signing, lol.

12 Jul 2019 18:11:59
Any one mentioned is pure speculation until he is through the door As much as I like to see speculation at this time of year I won't think of it more than that at this time.

12 Jul 2019 18:13:53
No probs nate.

12 Jul 2019 21:40:58
15m might be a fair price but if nobody is willing to the 15 id take 12, plus sell on fee, instead of him sulking and dragging his heels, use the cash get someone else in who wants to play at the club and impress.

12 Jul 2019 23:32:54
Would sell Ntcham if he's going to down tools like last season. The money from his sale could buy us a replacement as well as RBs and a CF with change if you go with the current rumours of Baldock £3m, Elhamed £1.6m, Sawyers £2.5m and plenty left over for CF.

13 Jul 2019 02:42:43
Well there's a first for everything, an expert on israeli football on this forum PMSL.

13 Jul 2019 11:31:38
with regards to selling Nitcham I think we have to wait until after he's spoken with the gaffer and if he is of the mindset which has been portrayed and its not just journalistic fantasy then I would get rid of him asap. I wouldn't even wait for someone to bid the clubs valuation as long as we make a profit I'd punt him. I certainly would not be in favour of holding on to him to we get what he's worth (he's no KT) as we would be paying good money for nothing. It would be like cutting of your d**k to spite your wife.

12 Jul 2019 08:04:07
Don't know wither to laugh or cry, it seems that the all the tabloids and web sites have all these players linked to Celtic and high on Lennon's transfer list. If that's the case, why are we not going out of our way to make sure we get them.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 08:40:40
Uve answered your own question really! The tabloids are full of rubbish and shouldn’t be listened to when it comes to our transfer business! Surely u must know by now they’ll make up anything if it means we look bad! Stop reading the tabloids!

12 Jul 2019 08:50:43
Just because the papers are saying it doesn't mean it's true. It takes time to get the right players in.

12 Jul 2019 10:05:11
Ditch all this interest in players based in England. They want money well in excess of ability due to the vast amounts of money. It’s a waste of time. We need to be looking at markets where £4-5m gets you a player. England is not the answer. Unless the answer we want us paying an inflated price and wages for a player who isn’t that good. It also diverts us and takes too long to finally be outbid by rubbish teams. We still don’t have the players we need and important games are played with glaring weaknesses in our defence.

The penny needs to drop that England is a waste of time and money.

12 Jul 2019 10:19:05
We are looking to get quality in. Teams don't generally want to sell there best players so we just have to wait. I for one would rather stick with what we have than have an over inflated squad of average players.

12 Jul 2019 11:35:32
I've been thinking the same thing magicpole, we should be looking in the Dutch, polish, Ukraine, type markets much better value to be had than down south. I honestly don't know why we keep looking in that market. are these Lennon's recommendations or are we still going for players scouted by Congerton?

12 Jul 2019 12:01:47
Probably scouting budget is pish so it's easier to keep an eye on players down south, but your right we should be targeting eastern European leagues, even south America, get them in and give them a sell on clause as we know if they become any good the club's from EPL will come sniffing.

12 Jul 2019 13:33:09
100% agree to avoid the English market for the most part. Surprised we aren't looking further east still. Surely a player or two in Japan or South Korea etc.
A whole world of hidden gems but were too busy looking down the road .

12 Jul 2019 13:55:33
Again where is this nonsense we are only scouting England coming from.
We have made 3 signings so far and only 1 has came from england.
Our last permanent signing from england before that was ntcham and he had spent the 2 seasons before that in Italy.

We should be targeting eastern Europe?

You mean like Ukraine where we got Shevd?
What about east central Europe like Austria where we got Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo?
Or Slovakia where we got Bayo?

Ye seems like pish scouting budget that only looks at England.

12 Jul 2019 18:41:56
Tend to agree, stick to Europe and forget down south.
Wouldn't sign anyone likely to disappear during the season to play in African nations cup etc.
Since being linked with Castagne, everyone seems inferior now, but there will be a gem out there.

13 Jul 2019 10:45:03
I'd say in terms of percentages. The players we have got from England have been very good. Struggling to think of a failure from England in the last 10 years. I'm sure there is 1 or 2 but when we go abroad there is much more risk of it not working out.

11 Jul 2019 23:14:18
Seems we had a 4 million bid of Smith accepted but couldn't agree personal terms with the player.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jul 2019 00:03:21
Interesting Kev surely he couldn’t be on that much more playing for Huddersfield.

12 Jul 2019 07:06:38
That’s the issue with going for championship players or EPL players, the money on offer is ridiculous! There’s absolutely no shame at all in losing out on players down there when it comes to wages! And that’s the bottom line, it’s the wages that kill us! We’ve shown we’ll pay money but the average wage down there for bang average players is frightening! I see what lennons doing going British and in the hunt for a RB but maybe we should be concentrating on the Dutch Belgian or Scandinavian leagues for these players! Better value for money and the wages aren’t astronomical!

12 Jul 2019 07:06:47
They were a epl team so he'd be on a good wedge.

12 Jul 2019 08:09:13
But got to say lads if we had been able to sign everyone we had bid for the board would have paid out
17.5 million by now.

11 Jul 2019 19:23:04
Looks like Elhamed is pulling a 'Boyata' on Beer Sheva. It's a no from me.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Jul 2019 20:20:23
Hendry is better, waste of money this one.

11 Jul 2019 23:58:08
Jack Hendry?

12 Jul 2019 07:07:16
Better off with Stephen hendry!

12 Jul 2019 08:07:44
Turner how many times have you seen this guy to come out with a statement like That?

12 Jul 2019 10:27:57
He looks decent on YouTube but so can anyone. I'm sure he'll only be to cover both CB/ RB if signed.

12 Jul 2019 11:16:54
I don't remember him if he played against us but do remember beer sheva giving us a going over but we still qualified. Looked like a team that could be playing champions league.

11 Jul 2019 17:28:29
Heard we have asked about a Middlesbrough striker. I don't know anything about him so hope he is good.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jul 2019 17:46:02
He's cost them about 15 million I read.

11 Jul 2019 19:21:19
Britt Assombalongo. Terrific striker scores bundles of goals and exactly what we are looking for but I find it hard to believe we could get him. Hope I’m wrong though.

11 Jul 2019 20:49:05
Would be brilliant signing if we got him. Scores a lot of goals and is strong and powerfull.

12 Jul 2019 10:11:33
If he’s that good he won’t be in our price range. Why even bother talking about players we couldn’t afford or would have offers to stay in England? It’s like talking about Mesdi coming. Although he is obviously.

12 Jul 2019 10:20:38
Does anyone think this guy would come or are we really interested in him or just more paper bull.

11 Jul 2019 11:31:55
Not sure about this but we have enquired about Youssouf Sabaly a right back at Bordeaux.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jul 2019 12:46:40
No bad player.

11 Jul 2019 15:40:55
At the ACOFN the now, would be kinda pointless as wee need a RB now and not in 4 weeks time.
