Being reported that Starfelt not named in the Europa League squad. No reason given as yet.

Maybe another mistake.




21 Jul 2021 20:10:31
Swedish defender announced on a 4 year deal.




28 May 2021 23:53:00
Gordon Strachan called it some months ago.




26 Mar 2021 09:34:35
PAPER TALK. Apparently Celtic have held talks with Keane about mangers job 🤷🤷.


1.) 26 Mar 2021 10:10:23
Seem to recall them saying the same before they appointed Lennon and then we later found out that they had not interviewed anybody and just given the job to Lennon.

2.) 26 Mar 2021 10:50:17
It looks like he has had a interview, but so has others . I don’t think he will get it, this is not a rumour but I think one name will be Andriy Shevchenko, the reason I say that is it seems like his name is being linked with a few jobs and he is rated highly, let’s hope we hear soon .

3.) 26 Mar 2021 11:36:25
Hope they name a manager soon as once again we will have had two full weeks between games and I for one need a Celtic related distraction.

4.) 26 Mar 2021 12:40:26
I would prefer to be managerless than appoint Roy Keane as we will be in a better position in 6 months time.

5.) 26 Mar 2021 17:47:21
Utter garbage.



29 Nov 2020 17:04:07
Fans outside the ground, protesting.


1.) 29 Nov 2020 17:12:51
H*n sense of entitlement mentality. Embarrassing.

2.) 29 Nov 2020 17:28:32
Your post is embarrassing JFP.

3.) 29 Nov 2020 17:33:03
How's it embarrassing. The board have failed to act so far. We supposed to just accept it and go home?

4.) 29 Nov 2020 17:47:33
JFP not embarrassing its gutting this is what we have resorted to. We had belief in going for the 10. We've been fed sh*t. Its okay to pay for virtual season tickets at excessive prices. Pay for club merchandise but been forced to watch the sh*t whilst they collect in excess of 10k a week salaries. The fans are voicing their concerns can't complain about it this time.

5.) 29 Nov 2020 17:55:53
The money that Hammond and Lennon have wasted us a disgrace that all e is gross misconduct and our st money down the drain. time for hard decisions.

6.) 29 Nov 2020 18:33:15
If you guys think that singing Lennon, Lennon GTF to a man who may have failed but nonetheless had given us his best in a country where he’s been treated like that since his arrival to Scotland’s shame without us joining in isn’t embarrassing after we’ve won 11 out of the last 12 trophies we’re watching a different film lads. I’ll repeat embarrassing. Watch the videos and get a life.

{Ed007's Note - I'm with you, JFP. It's well known I'm not Lennon's biggest fan but they way some of the support have turned on him is disgusting - I called out the players for downing tools under Deila and I'm calling them out for the same under Lennon. I don't blame him for that defeat today at all, this one 100% lies at the players' feet for me, that performance today was nothing to do with tactics or coaching and everything to do with millionaire footballers either not trying a leg or thinking all they need to do is turn up and we'll get a result.}

7.) 29 Nov 2020 19:03:56
Why are these fans not gunning for Lawwell?

I'm a big critic of Lennon however its not just his fault. Lawwell has avoided the gallows on far too many occasions. He should be out the door as well.

{Ed007's Note - Good point well made, Phil but to be fair to Lawwell he didn't sell anyone as we all expected and he has backed the footballing department with money this summer.}

8.) 29 Nov 2020 19:04:11
Ed 👍 I know you’ve never been the managers biggest fan but disgusting is spot on. You’re also 100% correct again the players cannot be exonerated and need to take a good hard look at themselves.

{Ed007's Note - When we win the league - whether that's under Lennon or A.N. Other - a lot of the players will need to be reminded of these times, especially the Scottish ones who are supposed to be the heartbeat of the team.}

9.) 29 Nov 2020 19:06:05
Best fans in the world Not with this showing
Lennon shouldn’t be in this position as he shouldn’t have got the job in the first place? After Xmas last year
Rangers were dropping points left right and centre and we went on a right run and because of that he got the job
We should have seen this coming last year.

10.) 29 Nov 2020 19:10:09
Singing Lennon gtf is out of order but protesting is required. They've taken it too far though.

11.) 29 Nov 2020 19:17:54
JFP fully agree.

Reminiscent of them running through Ibrox a few years back and we all laughed!

It appears the idiots in our fan base are becoming a larger minority than previously thought!

What are they going to do if they breach the police cordon? Hit the players? Challenge them?

Heads are down, Lennon is aware of his performance but 100 goons shouting and screaming will make it all better?

12.) 29 Nov 2020 19:10:09

13.) 29 Nov 2020 19:32:25
Embarrassing fans protesting during a lockdown. Makes us look like dafties and gives their mob even more ammunition to taunt us with.
The PLAYERS are to blame! Lennon has won numerous trophies as player and manager and doesn’t deserve to be treated like that.
The board will sack him based on results not because of a mob of fans shouting abuse at him.
Another sad day today made worse by our so called fans.
Make a banner, voice your concerns on social media or directly by mail to the club.
Everyone knows this is not good enough but gathering in large crowds during C.V. lockdown is the type of thing that gets the league shut down and awarded to Rangers.

14.) 29 Nov 2020 19:27:34
I can see both sides to the argument here, but as I said the other day, lawell and Desmond don’t read this page or other fan pages. If they aren’t shown how we feel they will feel we can just ride this out. Another point I made was that the longer lennie stayed the fans would start turning on him which is not comfortable to see. You can’t blame him for not wanting to quit for a variety of reasons so the board should have took this out of his hands probably after ferencvaros.

{Ed007's Note - Lawwell and Desmond don't read these pages but you can be 100% certain that Lawwell is kept well informed with what's being said on forums etc by his lackey, baw-humming bloggers .}

15.) 29 Nov 2020 19:55:07
Henriks Tongue go back and read your response to my earlier comment and either stand by it or retract it. You now have two contradictory posts. A man with one ar$e can’t ride two horses. You asked me why it was embarrassing and i’ve told you. I protested against the board in the Kelly era. Different days different scenarios. I’m also paying hard earned cash to watch my team when I can’t see them play which is why my biggest issue is with overpaid prima-donnas. Establish the facts before shooting from the lip. Goodnight and God Bless. ☘️.

16.) 29 Nov 2020 20:20:20
ed that's sure is confidence surely you can see us win this league mate?

{Ed007's Note - Of course I can, it's the end of November and we've played 13 games.}

17.) 29 Nov 2020 20:39:34
JFP I have no problem with fans protesting. It's the only way Lawwell and Desmond are going to act. However singing Lennon gtf and fighting with police is disgraceful.

Thats what I said. Not contradicting myself at all.

18.) 29 Nov 2020 21:04:43
I think protesting in normal times is not wrong in this situation But this is not normal times And it was not right, singing Lennon GTF I don't think its wrong I really wish he would leave He has lost every bit of respect I have off him. He has ruined a good team and I do agree PL has to take a huge part off the blame for the situation we are in And I am utterly shocked that he (Lennon) is still at the club as manager Another Sally but in a Celtic top.

19.) 29 Nov 2020 21:27:28
i get that and respect what your saying but i don't see us turning this around ed but oh my i hope I'm wrong.

{Ed007's Note - Oh ye of little faith, Liam.}

20.) 29 Nov 2020 22:01:34
Ed our recruitment gas been awful not one summer signing looks the part. And we spent 5 mill on soro and turnbull why he never plays them even tho we are struggling. And we needed a w/ o her and never signed one baffling.

{Ed007's Note - So not one summer signing looks the part but you're questioning why Turnbull - a summer signing - hasn't been playing? I'm lost with that logic mate......
It isn't Lennon fault who we sign or who we don't sign, anyone that still believes he has any control - not just an input - are kidding themselves on.}

21.) 29 Nov 2020 22:44:49
In general Hammond Lennon am not including turnbull because for some reason he doesn't play when we are clearly struggling mate.

22.) 29 Nov 2020 23:11:04
spot on ed007 a few players need shown the door in January.

Wonder now that Japan are out the Olympics if the move for Ko Itakura will gather pace?


1.) 03 Aug 2021 19:51:19
It won’t be any faster Greentree because Japan play Mexico for the Bronze medal.

2.) 03 Aug 2021 21:01:49
I watched the lad Itakura play against Spain at the Olympics today. Definitely not the dominant centre half we are in dire need of although he was very comfortable on the ball and not to dis-similar to big Ayer the way he brings the ball out from the back. Actually think he would be a better defensive midfielder.

Would still take the guy in a heartbeat but we are crying out for a dominant centre half that just attacks any balls into the box and anything that gets in the way. Another big Bobo or Varga type player would be ideal.

Seen someone suggest on Twitter the other day that we should get Martin O’Neil to scout a centre half lol actually thought it was no a bad idea.

3.) 03 Aug 2021 21:46:51
Not a bad idea at all - HH MON.



02 Aug 2021 11:03:52
I'm afraid the same toxic employees who presided over last season shambles are still in position, with the exception of Lennon and Lawell.

I know we need a lot of players, but a good team is built from the back. Apart from Martin O'Neil I can't think of a Celtic manger since who built a solid back line.

We've always had to make do. Bitton case n point.

If you don't concede you don't lose. Yes I know that's simple to say.
Yes I also understand if we don't score we can't win. But a solid back line has to be the corner stone of a great side. How can Celtic never go out and buy or train a solid defence.

Look at the other side, slippy came in and built and worked on a solid back line.

I don't know how training works but we need someone who can organise, work with and train a defence.

Sorry for the next comment, but those who say we get this position filled and that position filled are way off point. We need more than that. We need a lot of luck. I fear this season is going to be a struggle and the points margin could be more than last season.

I HOPE I'M WRONG, of course.


1.) 02 Aug 2021 12:14:23
Totally agree. Not only do I doubt we'll win our games but I also don't see many taking points off that mob. With automatic CL qualification for the winners it really will pay off to invest heavily and wisely.

2.) 02 Aug 2021 14:42:43
Your MON point is truly valid, although I think WGS did a great job of building a strong team all over the pitch on a budget.
For far too long we have had serious problems at the back whether it be full back, centre half or goalkeeper and the amount of injury prone and/ or inferior stop-gaps have just prolonged the misery.
I really hope (but doubt) , that we would spend real money on the positions that we crave as it's not as if we don't have the cash.



02 May 2021 14:50:33
Right let's face it, this sevco teams isn't outstanding, decent but not outstanding. Yes they have been much better than us (under statement) bette coached and drilled.

We're the exact opposite.

New manager in, new structure, better coaching get rid of the players that don't want to be there, get players in that do.

Sevco will never have an easier season than this one. Let's regroup and see how they handle the pressure from a resurgent Celtic.


1.) 02 May 2021 15:19:40
We have missed gil edged chances in nearly every game against them, and we've had the better chances difference is they finish theirs we don't, our deliveries from wide areas is poor theirs is very good and we can't defend.

2.) 02 May 2021 17:01:22
It’s all about opinions, I thought the second yellow for McGregor was very harsh little or no contact, he went down too easily for me.



26 Apr 2021 10:37:07
The papers go on about them being ahead of Celtic. Yip ok they've won the league at a canter obviously.

But it wasn't so long ago these same papers were writing about Celtic being miles in front of them.

Celtic for whatever reason simply haven't been up to it this season. We may never know why.

After the 1st 10 games they've went through the league campaign with no pressure from anyone. May well have been a different story if we had our house in order.

Anyway my point is I don't think they're that great or far in front of us. Yes we need some players without doubt. I'd like to see all these loan players stopping, or at least not so many.

But with a decent manger, as shown with Rodgers we can get back on track very quickly.

Yes it's disheartening to see them 20 odd points in front of us. But that was us at one point.

Things can change very quickly in football.

Hopefully the new manager comes in quickly and Celtic can move forward once more and taken our tittle and cups back.


1.) 26 Apr 2021 13:00:59
They are not that great. We never turned up this year we where woefull. What we achieved it the past ten years has been amazing and it's one of the hardest things to is keep winning trophies. They are a one hit wonder they also now know it's not easy to keep winning our achievement have been unreal.

2.) 26 Apr 2021 13:30:46
We do know why. We have been allowed to regress for years going cheap. We appointed a guy who should never been manager. Our recruitment team are the worst in football. This has been coming for years now. I can't believe anybody is actually surprised. My only fear is Lawell doesn't receive another unearned £3m bonus. That woukd be the final straw for me.

3.) 26 Apr 2021 16:16:18
Lawell made one of the biggest cockups in football in a shower room pardon the allergy 2 years ago and what ever reason even when he saw it wasn't going to work out he never did anything about it that IMO is the reason we got hammered this year the Green brigade made a tefo warning Celtic ( don't sleep at the wheel) but still Lawell did nothing I am sure next season will be a lot different.

4.) 26 Apr 2021 16:21:44
They've went unfeated in the league (so far) which is a remarkable achievement. They might not have won a double or treble but that's not an easy thing to do. We need a massive rebuild and realistically none of our 1st 11 would make theirs on current form.

5.) 26 Apr 2021 21:03:47
At the end of the day, Sevco have watched their club die and a tribute act take its place. They then had to play in the lower divisions for 4 years before watching their team get pumped by us for 5 years. On top of that they have had to pretend they don't like football or get ripped off us on a daily basis.

This is why they are going over the top with their bravado and celebrations. I say let them have their day as I sure normal service will resume soon and we can start ripping the piss once again.



21 Apr 2021 19:31:09
Disappointed in that line up.


1.) 21 Apr 2021 19:43:09
I can see loads of changes for the last 2 games of the season after our visit to Ibrox.
Brown will still play in his last game for the hoops at Celtic Park.
There will be messages of appreciation for Broony around the stadium from the supporters.
It means Soro won’t get a start until the last game of the season, which is unfair.
When Lenny left, I wanted Soro to get as much game time as possible to see if he’s capable of stepping up for next season.

2.) 21 Apr 2021 19:46:34
Line up a joke even if we win why not give new lads a chance Kennedy has learned nothing.

3.) 21 Apr 2021 19:51:39
I'm seething at that line up!
Anybody on here still think JK is a great coach? 👍.

4.) 21 Apr 2021 19:53:34
Play rubbish at the weekend against Sevco, and you will still play on Wednesday, Kennedy knows he is going at the end of the season so he plays a lot of players that will be away also, will they actually try tonight, only time will tell.

5.) 21 Apr 2021 19:59:55
Agree Buzz, it's absolutely crap.

6.) 21 Apr 2021 22:10:24
I commend us for seeing Kennedy alright and as I understand it he's got a job for life in some capacity but he needs put out of his misery and put onto folding kit or whatever it is.

Mally it's all about opinions.

As it stands Celtic have a uphill struggle and need some movement on the transfer front.

The horizon can change very quickly tho.

Mally, his assessment at this stage is spot on in my opinion. The community might not like that. They seem to get deals done far quicker and have a top European side coming to their patch I dare say they're paying them a pretty heft fee. But everything they're doing at the moment is positive. We only ever seen to tread water and are in talks with this one and that one.

We have a CL qualifier in 10 days and at the moment are far from prepared.

A lot can change on 10 days tho.

12m for Ajer in the last year of his contract. I just hope the club don't regret knocking that back. I don't know the club's finances but we could have brought in 2 quality signings for his fee.

The board dropped the ball with Howie. Now we're not privy to what agreements were made or in place if any. But to let Howie mull his decision over for months on end, either he have assurances to the board or the board where just sitting with their fingers crossed. Either way the Howie situation dragged on far to long and HELPED put us where we are today.

Think we all need to remember C.V. has put a big dent on our earnings and bank balance. Books need to be balanced. We live with in our own means and won't put the club in harm's way. Unlike other clubs were financial fair play should be involved. But it's not on Scotland.

I'd imagine most signings at a club are not the managers picks. That's why we have a scouting network. Yes the manage will have his own ideas but he can't be everywhere watching players and managing a team. Every transfer is a gamble. Some come good some disappear without being heard of.
