Harkin not getting the DOF job after its been confirmed that he is staying at Man City.
This is turning into a total farce.

Announcement from Celtic coming soon to confirm:-





1.) 01 Jun 2021 17:17:37
No chance LAWWELL.

2.) 01 Jun 2021 17:41:51
The Lennedy should say Assistant.

3.) 01 Jun 2021 17:56:39
I think kennedy will end up dof.

4.) 01 Jun 2021 18:15:48
You were right the first time.

5.) 01 Jun 2021 19:43:43
Again we’ll never know how interested or close Celtic were to getting Harkin in for the DOF role. the club have told the fans absolute zilch. I get the need for privacy during these type of discussions, but it’s went on that long now right into a critical period, you’d think in the 3 months or so since lennon left or was sacked, you’d think the club would’ve came out during that period with something. since lennon went the two prominent names mentioned were Howe and harkin. All it would’ve taken from the club was a short statement saying we’ve numerous candidates for the managers position and the DOF position and we’ll announce it in due course. can’t even get that right.

6.) 01 Jun 2021 20:52:52
The club have used the press to start rumours so the fans buy into it and to spend money, what a club, I am not falling for it again.

7.) 01 Jun 2021 21:00:46
Rejection after rejection for Celtic probably doesn’t help what happened to Lawwell’s motors and house, might not of been our fans but it’s widely speculated across certain pundits and ex players. So who’s going to come to a club if that’s in the back of there mind?

{Ed007's Note - I don't think what happened at Lawwell's house was entirely football related.}

8.) 01 Jun 2021 21:32:07
Just to be clear, I don't want the jib either. Just want that it there before someone ITK starts saying I'm signing a contract on Friday. What an absolute farce our cub has become all because the people in charge are totally inept. We need a clear out of the blazers. They are a disgrace and should be nowhere near the club. I wonder who will be next to tell the b8ard working for them seriously damaged your career.

9.) 01 Jun 2021 21:40:02
I don't know who set up Howe and Harkin but who ever it was should go now Total shambles and Embarrassment and IMO Totally unprofessional and unacceptable. They should have been water tight by now And I am sure if that was one of their employees that made so much mess they would have been sacked by now.

10.) 01 Jun 2021 21:42:39
This is starting to be a complete farce from start to finish. howe not coming in. harkin who everybody thought was coming in as dof and was supposed to have said to celtic about ange. has supposed to have now rejected celtic. we are a laughing stock. I am sorry but with the rumours of maloney, Kennedy and Strachan the whole board need to take good long hard look and really get this sorted. this is one time I am not looking through my green tinted specks. sorry hoops fans.

11.) 01 Jun 2021 21:43:37
I did happen to read an article the other day ed007 about PL and his efforts against high level crime guy's masquerading as agents to get involved with young footballers and eventually launder money, I read this about a week after him and his family were attacked. Scary stuff like.

{Ed007's Note - There's been a spate of attacks across Glasgow and Lanarkshire where high end cars were getting torched for no apparent reason - it was happening in Fairhill for a while although not high end numbers obviously lol - and I thought it was just the latest Ned craze but I think there's something more sinister about it and it's nothing to do with Celtic/Rangers rivalry or anything like that.}

12.) 02 Jun 2021 14:26:04
Ed007 your right, it could be something more sinister. People are too quick to speculate that its something to do with celtic/ rangers rivalry.

Could honestly be anything and PL might not even have been the target, could of been anyone who lived in house.

Thank God no one was killed and hopefully they catch whoever is responsible quickly.

{Ed007's Note - Definitely 👍👍



06 Apr 2021 10:36:36
McKay confirmed as coming in on the 19th April, hopefully we will get an announcement regarding the DOF and Manager.


1.) 06 Apr 2021 11:56:08
Now the ball is in play.



14 Mar 2021 00:14:14
Keane now officially throwing his hat into the ring.


1.) 14 Mar 2021 08:17:57
Lets just throw it RIGHT BACK OUT.

2.) 14 Mar 2021 09:49:09
I'm with you Peter.

3.) 14 Mar 2021 11:28:56
Another old pals act if Keane gets it. I love him, but, not as a manager. Bottom line is that what we want or hope for doesn't matter. My fear is not a single one of the guys mentioned, Howe, Rafa, etc would take it and it will be someone like Keane. If it was him or Ross then he would get My vote, and it at just turn out that way.

4.) 14 Mar 2021 13:05:13
It’s a tough one for me, as a manager he wouldn’t be my choice. I personally would like someone like Rogers that could coach players, improve them and have a decent style. Also I’d like someone who could tactically change games, I may be doing Keane a disservice but he doesn’t strike me as that type .
On the other hand, our team this season has been flat, lazy, unfit and at times have not look bothered. With Keane in charge we could safely say that wouldn’t be the case . That’s what is a tough choice for me, maybe if we were coming from a position of strength, the first type would have been my choice, now we look to be chasing them potentially Keane may be the best option.
It would seem that for whatever reason we don’t seem to have the pull or finances to pull in a really top operator, that’s where we seem to be at the minute. Although I’m starting to think that time is becoming a major issue as we seem to have a lot of changes needed and if we don’t sort something out soon we will be struggling next season as well.

5.) 14 Mar 2021 13:44:00
I like Keane for obvious reasons but manager not sure, wheres the evidence of him developing players and improving them, did OK at Sunderland and Ipswich was a bit of a disaster, av a feeling the press up here would have a field day with him due to his aggressive manner. but if it's him Al back him to the hilt.

{Ed007's Note - It would be worth appointing him for the press conferences alone - Keane would run rings round the hacks up here.}

6.) 14 Mar 2021 14:05:36
Box office ed the man doesn't suffer fools.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

7.) 14 Mar 2021 15:01:05
That is the plus Ed but on the football side not so sure.

8.) 14 Mar 2021 15:01:49
Keane for head of public relations would be ideal.

9.) 15 Mar 2021 13:21:35
Keane did a great job at Sunderland, who are my English team and my Sunderland supporting family liked him. I actually don't think he would be a disaster and would hope that time with O'Neill may have benefitted him. Whoever comes in, the recruitment needs to be spot on this season.

10.) 15 Mar 2021 14:21:49
id throw my ring in his hat.

11.) 15 Mar 2021 19:15:15
If it was Keane and Martin O Neill as DOF I’d be delighted tbh. I’d also take Keane as manager if he could get a top quality coach to coach the side while he manages team. Sean Maloney as 1st team coach responsible for getting the players fit and technically ready and tactically organises and Keane to have the aura and pick the side, do team talks and deal with press would be brilliant.
If we can get Keane in alongside someone playing good cop bad cop he could be a shrewd acquisition and excites me more than Eddy Howe who is a decent coach but can’t manage big characters, Steve Clark who gets best out a bad bunch but who’s teams are the definition of boring or Chris Wilder who by all accounts has done very well at Sheff Utd other than this disaster of a season but is not a yes man and our board would never appoint him in that basis.



08 Mar 2021 20:55:50
John Collins putting his name in the hat for DOF, I think he would do a good job but a lot probably wouldn't be happy.


1.) 09 Mar 2021 07:25:47
John Collins would be a disaster he comes across as arrogant. Its a big NO for me.

2.) 09 Mar 2021 09:47:43
Jonbhoy, Collins would cost us two wages; one for him and the other for his EGO.

I'll pass.

3.) 09 Mar 2021 13:30:14
Collins D O F D##k Or F##ny no thank you.



31 Jan 2021 17:15:39
We can say goodbye to Davies as reports saying Liverpool are wanting him to cover VVD.


{Ed007's Note - Liverpool are pushing to get Aaron Long on loan subject to a little bit of work by a third party and a Work Permit - The Work Permit should not be an issue as it is a loan. They will speak to Long before tonight's match in Florida.
As far as I know and been told there has been no contact between Liverpool and PNE with regards to Ben Davies.}

1.) 31 Jan 2021 17:35:56
was just reported during the liverpool game they are after him, ed do you know if the pre contract he's been signed?

{Ed007's Note - And the BBC are now reporting that there's been no contact. No the pre-contract hasn't been signed.}

2.) 31 Jan 2021 17:37:04
Cheers Ed, It was a report I read in one of the papers. I should have known better.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

3.) 31 Jan 2021 17:47:01
thanks ed.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

4.) 31 Jan 2021 17:58:44
So Davis is still up for grabs who can give him the best way forward the best package all round shiuld get his signature basically ED 007 then? Well fingers crossed we do.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 18:46:01
been widely reported liverpool will sign him now.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 17:45:16
A guy my boy knows who works for club saying this as well . might be rubbish tho.

BBC Scotland showing our game live on Thursday.




16 Jul 2021 14:12:10
Thanks to Glasgow City Council we are only allowed 9000 for the qualifier but the Sheep are allowed nearly 6000 in a smaller stadium.


1.) 16 Jul 2021 14:19:13
Wait until you see what Sevco get when they come into it again a smaller stadium but I think they will be allowed a lot more than 9k.

2.) 16 Jul 2021 14:47:22
Guys, Why are you so concerned at how much of a crowd that Sevco and Aberdeen are being allowed. We are Glasgow Celtic we should not be concerned about anyone else. That’s school boy stuff.

Hail Hail

3.) 16 Jul 2021 14:53:53
If you a season book holder and want into the game it's a concern that they get proportionately more.

4.) 16 Jul 2021 14:57:30
Why is it schoolboy stuff we have a 60,000 capacity stadium, Aberdeen have just over 20,000 yet we are allowed 9,000 and Aberdeen over 5.500 why can’t both stadiums have a quarter of their capacity.

5.) 16 Jul 2021 14:59:20
Reason is Sevco don't let ANYONE away with anything where as Celtic just do as you say and don't say anything one great example is 55 league titles. Celtic as a club have only came out once in my lifetime as I remember and that ended up with the head off the SFA getting the sack Sevco moan all the time so everyone tries to bend over backwards to please them we should have been going on about a lot more as a football club.

6.) 16 Jul 2021 15:27:01
Boruc, stop havering mate.
It isn't school boy stuff when clubs are getting treated differently.
How can one club be allowed over 40% of there capacity when another isn't even allowed 20%?

7.) 16 Jul 2021 16:05:49
Aberdeen are allowed 27% of their capacity
Compared to Celtic being allowed 6.66% of our capacity.

8.) 16 Jul 2021 16:30:20
Hampden was at 25% for the European games, that is the base line that all clubs should be allowed to start from, although all fans will have to have similar tests or whatever the protocol was for those games.

9.) 16 Jul 2021 17:06:24
Sorry that should be 15% of our capacity at Celtic Park.
The 9,000 fans picked will probably be the fans who live close to the ground.

10.) 16 Jul 2021 18:36:33
Jonbhoy, I am not havering. There are bigger things in the world to worry about just now.

But then again some people are never happy unless they are moaning about something.

It is what it is, so stop moaning about it.

Hail Hail



16 Jul 2021 12:01:56
With the Colts kicking off there season this Saturday, I was interested to see who they had named in there squad.
According the the Official Celtic website we have named
Helde, Otto, Moffatt and Coffey as part of the B team.
I was surprised at Helde and Moffatt as I thought both did really well and were part of the group that stayed on in Wales whilst the other boys came back up the road after the first game.

ED, do you know how the squads work and can the young boys move between the colts and first team squad? is it fixed for the season or do you have to wait and move like in a transfer window.


{Ed007's Note - They need to wait until the next transfer window to transfer between the two squads.}

1.) 16 Jul 2021 13:03:00
Cheers ed.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

2.) 16 Jul 2021 17:50:42
Ed I've just read they can switch up until the player plays 5 times for then in locks down.



15 Jul 2021 12:53:53
Now that LG has been given the all clear I think its time we picked up the phone and offered Hibs £3m + LG for Nisbet.


1.) 15 Jul 2021 13:37:58
Can’t see any club wanting to take him in now - will be a huge uproar

Regardless of wether he was cleared of any wrong doing he’s just confirmed what most people think of him now - a complete and utter waste of a player.

2.) 15 Jul 2021 13:38:36
Get him off to America or China where he can earn a few pound ( his behavior suggests he’ll need it) and keep him away from Aberdeen or Hibs.
I agree that we should buy Nisbet anyway.

3.) 15 Jul 2021 13:54:44
And doig.

4.) 15 Jul 2021 13:59:10
Absolutely get them pair in now!

5.) 15 Jul 2021 14:34:50
As far as I can tell LG has scored 25 goals in the past 3 seasons 😞.

I would not have given LG a deal but with the Eddy situation it only left Ajeti and I thought, okay, Ange is giving himself another option.

Now, after the barrow load of chances he's had and this latest disaster, it's time to get rid of him.

6.) 15 Jul 2021 14:44:52
I empathize that he has had mental health problems, but a lot of his problems stem from poor decisions and choices and being at Celtic must put him under extra scrutiny and pressure. I really feel a move would be best for both parties, where he can salvage what's left of his career and we can bring in new blood.

7.) 15 Jul 2021 15:14:43
He needs to go ASAP! Far too many chances and has given us little faith in him returning as an important player. Perfect window would include, Soppy, Boye, starfelt, Doig or Hickey, McCann or Ferguson and Nisbit. Then try for 2/ 3 top quality loans Ben Davis etc if the budget can’t stretch to permanent.



14 Jul 2021 09:52:08
Looks like Abada, Soppy and Starfelt are all coming in before the deadline.
Maybe people will stop wetting there pants and moaning that we won't sign anyone
Along with Lawal, Shaw and Urhoghide. Big Ange is building a squad not just a first 11.


1.) 14 Jul 2021 13:59:26
It would be a bonus, if Celtic added some Scottish blood to the squad with Ferguson and Nesbitt.

Just read an article regarding this and it does state that it worldwide and not just for his international.
It states that he had served 2 game ban already so surely Uefa will look into why he played against us and a couple of league games.

If Aberdeen want £5m for Ferguson then we should pay it. We will get at least double that selling him on in 2 or 3 seasons.

We could have bought Doig, Nesbit, Ferguson and the Dundee Utd keeper 3 or 4 weeks ago and they would have went straight into the team.
