Rogic and bitton leaving officially announced

I wouldn't have minded losing Rogic a few seasons ago but this has literally been his best season in a celtic Jersey
The one where he really became the player we had been waiting on.
Bitton has had a good season as well. Wish him well.


1.) 13 May 2022 11:43:54
Wish them both best of luck wherever they go. If in honest I'm not too bothered about either leaving. I believe we can get much better in. Hopefully they both get game time on Saturday so they can get a good send off.

For all rogics good play a player in his position should be scoring and assisting more than he does. Will be interesting to see who we bring in.

2.) 13 May 2022 11:50:16
Rogic looked detached in the post-match celebrations the other day, not exactly channelling Stan Petrov all those years ago but I figured something was up. I agree Kev: Rogic showed the player he could be this year. I wonder if the plan is for O'Riley to star there or bring someone in?

3.) 13 May 2022 11:54:09
Totally agree Kev. A couple of seasons back when he was rumoured to be heading away I was OK with it. I was really looking forward to seeing what he could do in this team but if the decision was his then all the best and good luck to him. It will be very exciting to see us try and replace a guy of his guile and creativity.

4.) 13 May 2022 11:59:33
Both Forrest and Rogic’s contracts expired on May 31st 2023.
Forrest gets a new 3 year extension but Rogic doesn’t.
Maybe Rogic wants to try something new.



07 May 2022 18:41:53
Bitton away at end of season?


{Ed007's Note - I've been saying for a while that I could see that happening, Kev. It;s a bit of a stick or twist for Celtic with him going into the last year of his deal - do we still only offer over 30s a years extension? - and will Bitton himself be happy with that at his age and only being a bit part player?
He had the chance to return to Israel last summer but decided to stay, maybe now is the ideal time for him and his family to return home and start playing every week.}

1.) 08 May 2022 10:37:47
If he leaves it will be with a huge thanks from me as he has been a great servant and we then need to find a replacement with his quality.

2.) 08 May 2022 07:48:50
Kind of coin you think we will get for Bitton. CCV celtic man next season is the word on the street.

{Ed007's Note - I'd just let Bitton leave on a free as a thank you for his service.}

3.) 08 May 2022 11:18:27
You'll struggle to find a more selfless player and that's why his team mates have so much love and respect for him. He's so often forced to be a square peg in a round hole and it gets him stick from the fans but he's the ultimate team player. All that being said, I think we probably could improve on him in the summer window.

{Ed007's Note - ?

4.) 08 May 2022 11:31:34
Being reported in the Jewish Telegraph and his Instagram seems to back it up.

5.) 08 May 2022 14:29:17
Free he will walk out Celtic a millionaire. He didn't do it for nothing. Would you let Calmac leave for nothing. Would be looking for 1/ 2 million for him.

{Ed007's Note - Calmac is 28-years old, Celtic captain and one of the best Scottish midfielders of his generation. If Celtic sell Bitton he will be due any money due on his contract plus 5% of any fee we receive
He could always just sit and see out his contract and get around a million in wages for doing nothing then leave on a free next summer along with the loyalty bonus for seeing out his contract.
Probably when you work out the finances of all the options it'll be a few hundred thousand £ of a difference if we got £1 million for him.}

6.) 08 May 2022 15:07:11
You have to give a player what he's owed In a contract. That can't be right, so we had to give Tierney 4yrs money and they walk into a multi million pound contract.

{Ed007's Note - If a player doesn't ask for a transfer they are due a percentage of what they're outstanding contract is worth plus 5% of the fee the selling club receive. KT asked to leave in the terms of transfers.}

7.) 08 May 2022 15:08:46
A loyalty bonus for running down their contracts. Jesus some gig they are on.

{Ed007's Note - These days players have a loyalty bonus tied to the end of their contract - remember Henrik and the board pulled a flanker with his? Transfers are not as black and white as a lot fans think and that's why sometimes it's easier just to do a deal for them to leave for free.
It would cost Celtic well over £1 million if Bitton decided to stay and leave on a free next year - and to be honest I don't think he is part of even Ange's short term plans. We have Gucci to play in there and it looks like Bosun Lawal will be promoted to the first team squad for next season.
I don't know if Celtic will be looking for a fee for Bitton, all I'm saying is I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't.}

8.) 08 May 2022 17:17:01
Cheers Ed if only I had talent.

{Ed007's Note - ?

9.) 08 May 2022 23:04:40
That's big news to me Ed. You'd think if a player agrees to the move then they shouldn't really be entitled to any remaining wages as they're essentially an equal partner in ending the contract.

{Ed007's Note - If you hand in your notice you're still entitled to lie time, holidays due and contracted bonuses etc If you get paid off you're due redundancy, holidays etc etc That's maybe the best way to look at it.... Feck knows lol


10.) 09 May 2022 11:59:34
Fair enough. Just another reason on the ever-growing list of why we should have stuck in and been football players lol.

{Ed007's Note - ??



10 Sep 2021 16:48:46
Hearing that McKay has stepped down for personal reasons?


1.) 10 Sep 2021 17:11:28
There will be plenty of rumours about Dom stepping down.
The one I’ve heard already is that his relationship with Dermot Desmond has completely broken down.
Due to Lawwell still working in the background.
Lawwell is supposed to have been given the job of appointing a DOF and Dom feels this should be his task.

{Ed007's Note - ????

2.) 10 Sep 2021 17:09:53
This is so frustrating and weird at the same time. Back to the old pals act, we had someone that seemed to want to modernise the club. After a slowish start he did seem to do well with the window and bring in Ange. Could it have anything to do with strachan coming in, after saying in the summer he wouldn’t be . This whole affair stinks.
The chairman saying the new stand in, is a real team player. Is that a reference that McKay wasn’t pulling in the direction the tight fisted board wanted him to .

{Ed007's Note - ???

3.) 10 Sep 2021 17:20:06
It's been confirmed. That's a shock!

4.) 10 Sep 2021 17:25:55
Did you like that you Ed,
That was from my son and the time on that information was before 2pm today.
I hope Dom and everyone connected to him are okay.

{Ed007's Note - ??

5.) 10 Sep 2021 17:42:21
Probably the last thing we needed this season as it's unsettling for the club again. Maybe he was out of his depth or maybe promises made by the board wasn't kept who knows we can only speculate, But at least he successfully overseen the massive rebuild that needed doing. I can only hope we don't go for another penny pinching CEO that doesn't want to spend the money to help us be competitive in Europe.

6.) 10 Sep 2021 18:10:00
Sorry Mark, what's actually funny about this?

{Ed007's Note - All the silly conspiracy theories.}

7.) 10 Sep 2021 18:37:02
Well what’s the real story then ed? Don’t think it will effect us anyway as business is already done.

{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't like to speculate but remember we had to give the stock exchange 6 months notice that Lawwell was leaving, CEOs don't suddenly leave a job after a couple of months because they've spat the dummy out or because they're not getting their own way.
Of course it will affect us, CEO's don't only have a job to do during transfer windows. We're back to square one with the restructuring and modernisation of the Club.}

8.) 10 Sep 2021 22:33:32
I think that it's because WGS has been trying to shove his copy of How to be a CEO for dummies, down McKays throat, I can think of nothing worse for an incoming CEO than having a wee know it all like Strachan, giving his unwanted and unneeded and totally inept advice, every minute, of every hour, of every day, that he happens to be at Parkhead, it would be enough to make anyone resign, (well that's my conspiracy theory ) ,

{Ed007's Note -McKay was all for WGS coming in - footballing people making footballing decisions.
We need to start a $hiteSherlockCSC with the nonsense flying about tonight.}

9.) 10 Sep 2021 22:57:07
Did Shaun Connery no shae that ?.

10.) 11 Sep 2021 07:51:02
Maybe it actually is personal reasons he's left. Wish him well and hopefully he is okay. Literally no point speculating and anyone saying they know the reason this early on is talking out their arse.

11.) 11 Sep 2021 10:01:57
Yep, it might actually be a good decision for reasons unknown but just when you think a bit of stability this happens. Which ultimately means the decision makers have shown poor judgement again. Does anyone have any legitimate info?

12.) 11 Sep 2021 11:36:04
Looks like our old board who got us into the rubbish we got into have ousted the guy trying to oust their ways. Not good for us or Ange. Detest our board of Torys.



13 Aug 2021 10:43:46
Few rumours floating about saying the bhoy Lovric will be in by end of the window.


1.) 13 Aug 2021 12:22:48
Would like to get him in ASAP Kev, boy sounds good.

2.) 13 Aug 2021 12:25:07
Was literally about to ask Ed what the script with this guy is, cos if he’s not joining he’s turned into a fan bhoy lol.

3.) 13 Aug 2021 13:02:25
He's posting stuff on social media about us, bit strange jn a good way 🤣.

4.) 13 Aug 2021 13:28:18
It looks like he wants to be a Celtic player and that’s good.

5.) 13 Aug 2021 14:01:33
Well let's hope the board let him get his move.

6.) 13 Aug 2021 14:52:21
I think we will only sign this boy if hritie leaves. That's if we are genuinely interested.

7.) 13 Aug 2021 15:22:14
do you think we are waiting to see if a bid comes in for christie before we sign lovric?



16 Jul 2021 12:45:44
Kristijan Lovrić next?


1.) 16 Jul 2021 13:05:01
Can’t see us buying another wide player.

2.) 16 Jul 2021 13:14:50
Why we are desperate for a left for them.
Mickey johnstone can't be relied on because he's injury prone and not good enough.
Jury still out on dembele imo
Leaves us with 3 in forrest, abada and Furuhashi ( who will also play upfront when needed. )

3.) 16 Jul 2021 13:48:22
Can’t see them paying another £5m on a winger possibly the boy Edwards who’s name has been going about on a free? Give a bit more depth. Time to look on finishing the deals to seal up our defence.

4.) 16 Jul 2021 14:32:51
Edwards on trial elsewhere Says it all, Johnstone can't be replied on shved prob away and the japanese boy can play Central so kevs got a point, but I would like a rb and cb first if honest.

5.) 16 Jul 2021 15:03:03
The japanese bhoy actually plays more left but we need more than one.

6.) 16 Jul 2021 15:08:46
Kev83 I take what I said back lol as the Croatian winger has started following Celtic and Celtic Fan Zone on his social media accounts. May be a fan of the club but a bit strange to start following lol.

7.) 16 Jul 2021 15:17:18
We will need another forward player when Edouard leaves as we only have Ajeti and the Japanese boy.

8.) 16 Jul 2021 19:46:31
We need a Defence, GK + x2 CB's + LB + RB. Then x2 Strikers.

9.) 17 Jul 2021 00:17:00
Since looking at stats. Japanese striker is a CF.
Abada. Also a CF.

10.) 17 Jul 2021 00:21:46
He's just followed Celtic on Instagram. Maybe some truth in it.
The way big Ange sets up good wide players are needed.

We're we taking winning for granted?
Did losing last years title remind us of what an achievement it is?
I ask because this is one of my favourite title wins in my lifetime, up there with 97/ 98 00/ 01.


1.) 15 May 2022 14:16:22
Kev83 ?

☘️ ? ☘️.

2.) 15 May 2022 14:17:24
I asked that way back keV. Was winning now more an achievement than the 10. Given where we were I feel it was. Totally different challenges but this was the greater of the two. Demonstrates Lennon's failure even more.

3.) 15 May 2022 15:06:18
We certainly got used to dominating Kev but for me I was more frustrated with our board and governing body allowing a financially doped club challenge us. Had we lost to an Aberdeen or Hibs I wouldn't have been as angry.

4.) 15 May 2022 15:17:49
10 men won the league 79 and god bless Albert kidd 86 . my two favs.



14 May 2022 14:18:20
Ed007 just a quick message to say thank you for all your hard work again this season. Without you this site and chat wouldn't be the special thing it is. Have a nice summer big man.


{Ed007's Note - Thanks very much, Kev and the same to you mate.}

1.) 14 May 2022 15:01:07
Couldn't agree more, this site, for many of us is THE place to share opinions, get things off our chest, debate and enjoy Celtic banter. Not to mention the enlightenment and factual detail of Buzz's stats. Anyway, thanks for managing and maintaining this site for another - light years better than last - season. HH.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks OAB ??

2.) 14 May 2022 15:14:11
I was thinking the same today Kev.
The site wouldn’t be the same without Ed.007.
I really appreciate the effort and the loads of time he puts in to the site, every single day.
It’s good to know that when we write a post or a reply,
That Ed.007 posts it almost immediately and that adds to the instant enjoyment and banter.
Have a good day celebrating everyone ?.

{Ed007's Note - Hahaha and you send that while I'm away to Mass and can't post it immediately ? but thanks Buzz and thanks for all your input on here as well ?

3.) 14 May 2022 17:08:41
What he said.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks Stubbsie ?

4.) 14 May 2022 17:53:22
Same as Stubbsie, big respect Mark HH.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks AGG ?

5.) 15 May 2022 07:26:19
Same as the rest of boys Ed HH.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Jic ?



14 May 2022 12:04:31
The fact that Ange has not selected Bitton for the starting line up today shows a lot about his mentally.
Team comes first, no one will be selected on sentimental reason, no one will be selected just because they are a pal or a favourite of the manager, being one of his signings doesn't guarantee you a game.


{Ed007's Note - There's a game to be won first and foremost, Kev ?



12 May 2022 14:32:06
I swear this title is up there with 97/ 98 and 00/ 01 as my favourites.
Our club was in disarray, divided top to bottom, our squad was paper thin.
Up stepped Ange Postecoglou, no one gave him a chance, wrote off and insulted by not just outsiders but many of our own.
What a season!


1.) 12 May 2022 17:56:39
Kev83 ?

☘️ ? ☘️.



29 Jan 2022 18:40:09
Didn't see where that goal was coming from.
Games like that are where champions are made.
2 games in a row we've had to beat the opposition and the referee.
Great result.


1.) 29 Jan 2022 19:31:42
Agree Kev, they parked the bus and he was the conductor.

I'd have had O'Riley to start over rogic myself for the extra work rate then brought rogic on when they tire but that looks a good line up.

Problem with rogic was that all we ever heard was "on his day" when his days were few and far between.
In reality he was a luxury player or a super sub.
Now he seems to have an epiphany and has added hard work, energy ect ect to his game.
Keeps this up and it really could be his days now.
