A few points on the potential signing of Simpson:

1. If this was a £8m 25 year old right back signing from France or Portugal who had been found guilty of what Simpson has done, there would be a lot less people saying he shouldn’t be anywhere near our club. People like to pick and choose when to take the moral high ground (the same people don’t seem to have a problem with Griffiths or Lennon)

2. The fact he is the same age as Lustig is irrelevant. Just because Lustig’s legs have gone doesn’t mean Simpson is the same. Every players condition is different at that age. Look at Dani Alves. 36 and still the best right back in the world

3. Just because we appeared to make big bids for Piccini and Castagne doesn’t mean that we have a £7m+ budget for a right back. We have a new manager now and he’ll have been given a budget to work with this summer, so has to spread this around the positions he thinks need filled. Lennon obviously wanted an experienced centre half from a good league and this costs a few bob. Maybe he thinks a solid right back that's available on the cheap is the best way to go, so that he can make the most of the rest he has to spend

4. Tactically Simpson doesn’t seem to fit the bill in terms of what we all thought we’d be after - an attacking right back. However, he’s an exceptional defender, and given our new left back appears to like to roam all over the place, having a right back who is bombing on may not the way to go. Lennon might want a right back who holds position so that we aren’t over exposed on the wings.

The game is full of players who have done wrong from cantona attacking a fan to grobbellar throwing games and then the Bevvy merchants you can't condone it but it's there and we all deserve a second chance.


2.) 19 Jul 2019 09:55:09
To top of that lm67 I don't think he will be the only out and out right back we bring in if he does sign.
I think the other lad is to cover CB.


3.) 19 Jul 2019 13:03:55
If Simpson is still as good, why didn’t Brendan keep him?


4.) 19 Jul 2019 13:16:21
Even though I'm glad it's work being done at right back, I do believe this is a cheaper alternative and wouldn't say he's an "exceptional defender".

If he's that good then why did leicester let him leave? They don't exactly have one of the best right backs in the world.

We know Lennon is on a budget but we also know the amount of money we've raked in, especially from last summer. We might not be able to pay 7-8m on a top drawer right back after paying that amount already on a new centre half but I'm pretty sure there's far better options out there who wouldn't cost as much and would benefit us more than Simpson would going forward.


5.) 19 Jul 2019 13:40:52
Putting aside the daft comments from Griffiths and whatever allegedly happened with Lennon (I will make no excuses for their behaviour here and I will base this on its own individual merits here) ; it sends out the wrong message.
I am still very confused to this concept as to why people think it’s ok for celebrities / footballers / musicians etc to walk back into a job making a very comfortable living for themselves after doing some pretty horrible things.
But that’s maybe that’s just me?
The thing that bugs me about Simpson was his attitude afterwards, reading reports, he basically appealed community service and then had the audacity to appeal his house arrest? Doesn’t exactly sound as if he was even slightly remorseful about the situation.
Footballing ability aside, and purely on a human level, I’d rather we perused someone else.
But each to their own. HH.


6.) 19 Jul 2019 13:48:53
Naka that just historicity. Set aside Lennon and Griffiths behaviour but not Simpson's.

So people with high paying jobs should be punished more?


7.) 19 Jul 2019 14:49:48
I said I’m taking this one it’s individual merits.
All are unsavoury for me either way.
But if it’s you or me that battered our missus about we would likely serve jail time, have a criminal record and our career prospects would diminish.
I think it says more about society than it does the individual however Kev
Simpson was hardly even punished and barely sounded like he gave a feck anyway!
If he signs then good luck to him, but like I said on a human level I’d rather avoided this one imo
If he smashes some people and not some birds that would maybe make it slightly better but we will just have to wait and see.


8.) 19 Jul 2019 15:41:18
To say that Simpson shouldn't sign due to his past isn't hypocritical just because we've previously had staff on the books who have had violent and/ or criminal pasts.

I do not think any man who lifts his hands to a woman should be hired into a job where a his new employers will be held accountable for his actions.

I have read only a couple of articles which quote his charges, but if he is in a position in the future where he is violent at work and under Celtic's employment, while Celtic knew he had offended previously, the club would be in a position where they'd hold some liability for his actions.

There's no sign that he's completely rehabilitated and doing work for domestic abuse charities to try and make amends, so I don't think he's deserving of another club taking the same risk Leicester did.

I'll be appalled if Celtic do sign him, especially in the current environment.


9.) 19 Jul 2019 16:04:29
That's just nonsense.

Giovanni Gonzalez. Penarol. 24 year old right back. 5 caps for Uruguay

Potentially our new right back.

He’s been mentioned online. Seems too obscure a name for there not to be something in it.


4.) 16 Jul 2019 11:23:32
The two Ecuadorians were to be signed by this time last week according to words attributed to them. Modern media makes it harder to separate fact, fiction, opinion and outright nonsense. I'll wait for the official sign on photo as we all know the unofficial ones end in tears.


5.) 16 Jul 2019 14:58:45
I. e. David Tutnbullesc.

Boli Mbombo another left back alternative according to Twitter.

23 Jun 2019 23:17:09
Max Lowe of Derby (on loan at Aberdeen last season) linked as KT replacement. Was always impressed by him last season to be fair, however, would have hoped for a more exciting replacement.

I suppose it’s going to be impossible to sign anyone anywhere near as good as KT.

Lowe is good defensively, could we bring him in as well as a good attacking full back like Melling? And select who plays depending on opposition.

KT was brilliant going forward and defensively - huge shoes to fill.

LM67

1.) 24 Jun 2019 05:55:45
They are big shoes to fill LM. KT is one of the beat young left backs going. But then surely we're already enquiring about other beat young left backs, and will base what we want for KT on the cost of his replacement. Or will we sell him for 20m+ and bring in the dirt cheap option with the shareholders trousering the rest.


2.) 24 Jun 2019 07:12:21
Very underwhelming if we are looking at him to be Tierneys replacement. Hopefully after someone more experienced too as first choice.


3.) 24 Jun 2019 07:42:48
No way can it be acceptable for Lowe to be brought in as a replacement for KT. as a back up to KT then yeah but not to replace him.


4.) 24 Jun 2019 08:48:37
Is Lowe just not for back up for KT? I mean if he doesn't go we still need back up for the left back position, we new we would need back up for KT, even before arsenal and the RAT came sniffing aboot! Stop the panic lads, I think he'll stay! He's Celtic thru and thru!


5.) 24 Jun 2019 09:41:01
Maybe Lowe is being targeted to replace Izzeguire and back up.


6.) 24 Jun 2019 09:46:09
Rumours that Boli Mbombo is being looked at as a possible transfer. 23 year old left back that plays with Rapid Vienna, don't know anything about him apart from he had played over 90 senior level games.


7.) 24 Jun 2019 10:40:58
Lowe was probably one of the best players out with our club in the league last season. Mbombo would be a good addition also. I expect tierney to leave.


8.) 24 Jun 2019 12:03:03
Boli Mbombo is a very physical LB like KT and I'd be pretty happy to see him come in as rumoured yesterday.


9.) 24 Jun 2019 12:32:30
Replacing KT with Lowe would be akin to giving up your Bentley for an all day ticket on the feckin bus. If Lawell thinks we will accept that he can go feck himself. In fact, if he doesn’t tool up for the CL he can pack his bags right now.


10.) 24 Jun 2019 12:43:16
Rather than knocking back the latest offer. Why not say, not for sale. The only reason they aren’t indicates it’s KT who wants to go. He holds all the aces, it cannot happen unless he agrees. I’m hoping it’s all bollocks, but without him saying anything, it’s seeming more likely he’s had enough of living the dream. Even writing that made me feel sad.


11.) 24 Jun 2019 15:42:51
Hopefully it's to replace Izzy rather than Tierney 🙏.


12.) 24 Jun 2019 16:16:14
The fact Arsenal are bidding shows they’ve received encouragement to pursue a deal from KT and his agent.


13.) 24 Jun 2019 16:19:40
Bhoys we all new this day would come we just didn't want it to happen for me he should go and test himself in a so called better league us as celtic fans can’t deny him that
Deep down we all know this is a poor league but we have to play what’s in front of us . I will be gutted to see him leave but if we get £20 mill plus and spend it wisely it would be good for the club . He will always be celtic through and through.

A lot of talk on of selling Rogic, and while I agree he was poor last season, I still think he can produce magic that no one else in our team can.

I knew he would have a poor season as he hasn’t had a proper break/ rest (other than when in injured which obviously isn’t the same) since summer 2016! Played for Oz in Confed Cup in 2017 and World Cup last summer.

No surprise either that after that rest in summer 2016 he produced his best season for us, scoring 12 in 36 games.

I wouldn’t write him off just yet. A proper rest this summer will hopefully have done him a lot of good.

LM67

1.) 22 Jun 2019 12:55:52
Lm67 he is a passenger in most games and lives of the odd big goal. He plays in what is meant to be the most creative area in the park and creates very little.

His over all goals and assist stats for his full time at the club are atrocious.

He misses serious amounts of games every season and very rarely finishes 90 minutes.


2.) 22 Jun 2019 16:26:30
As much as rogic has that bit of class to open up team is does it way too little for me. And does go missing in some big games. For me if we did get a good bid for him it one that we need to seriously think about.


 

 

20 Jun 2019 22:58:47
Good sign if Lennon’s told Lawwell that he wants to sign him no matter what it takes and he’s went and slapped the offer on the table. Maybe not his pupper after all.

27 May 2019 21:37:02
Lennon was by no means my first choice, far from it. But I think there’s been a major negative over reaction to his appointment.

He was brought in to deliver the treble, and he’s done it. Yes the League was pretty much wrapped up, but the cup wasn’t and the ties we got in that were far from easy.

Obviously the performances haven’t been up to scratch, but I’m hoping with the summer to bring in his own players and have implement his own style we’ll see an improvement. He’s also had it tough injury wise since he came in, and has had next to no use out of KT and Christie, and none out of Griffiths.

Do I wish we’s got someone else? Of course. But I still think we are in capable hands as we head towards the 10.

LM67

1.) 28 May 2019 12:58:03
Didn't he do that at Hibs? They was terrible most games and only picked their game up when playing us or Sevco.


 

 

23 May 2019 21:22:46
Moyes is by no means my first choice as our new manager. However, I’m surprised that his potential appointment is being greeted with so much negativity.

I’m in no doubt that the main reason for this is that too many of our supporters are convinced that we actually have a chance of getting Mourinho, Benitez or AVB. Can you really picture any of these guys rocking up to Dingwall on a Wednesday night with a team full of £2-3m summer signings? No chance.

Do I think Moyes would blow us away with free flowing football like in Rodgers’ first season (his final 18-20 months were poor) ? No

Do I think he’d make us more competitive in Europe? Maybe

Do I think he’d lead us to 9 and 10 in a row? Definitely.

Don’t forget this is a man who was handpicked by one of the greatest manager’s ever to manage the biggest team in the world not so long ago.

To think he’d fail in Scotland is laughable.

LM67

1.) 23 May 2019 21:47:07
He was on a hiding to nothing following fergie and in relative terms didn't spend much compared to what van gal and Jose spent he then made 2 bad choices going to Spain and serial failures West ham.


2.) 23 May 2019 22:10:33
I have multiple reasons I don't want him near our great club, here's a few
1) He hasn't done a thing in the game- Managed Preston -mediocrity
Managed Everton -mediocrity
Every job he's had since has been disasterous.
2) He is one of the most boring people to listen to-zero charisma, good managers need to be good talkers.
3) The main reason is he has I believe had the chance to come to us when he was in demand and ruled himself out pretty quickly.

Get him tae f***. Just no no no
ABM- Anyone but Moyes.


3.) 23 May 2019 22:28:45
It has nothing to do with the likes of AVB or jose.
It's to do with the fact he is chronic. He's never achieved a thing and it a plod along manager at best.

I have been quite vocal about not thinking Lennon is the man for job but I'd take him over moyes any day.


4.) 23 May 2019 22:51:05
Not my first choice, was good at Everton but that's it.

In fairness though Man Utd was a sinking ship before he took over. If they were still winning titles, Fergie would still be in charge.


5.) 23 May 2019 22:58:47
Rodgers has never won anything outside of Scotland either though kev.


6.) 23 May 2019 23:11:42
Exactly Kev, I'm not deluded enough to think we are going to get some of the names being mentioned but Davie Moyes! come on we can do better than that. This is a guy who's desperate for a job because nobody wants him. I smelt a rat weeks ago when he turned up at the Kilmarnock game but tried to convince myself he was going to get the Scotland job or he was up to pay his respects to Cesar. As I said earlier once you have turned down the chance to come to our great club you don't get another.


7.) 24 May 2019 06:00:54
The mangers position will be sorted next week one way or the other thank god, then the speculation stops and whoever gets the gig wether it’s Lennon, moyes, Benitez, mourhino, the Pope, we need to get 100% behind them. Next season is massive, everything that’s been won and done for the past 8 years has led us to the brink of 9 in a row. I grew up with the stories of the lions doing it and never in my wildest dreams thought I’d see a Celtic team achieve it and possibly better it. Whoever the next manager is we must give him our full support, pull together as one and build for next season. We’ve a huge job on our hands in terms of players leaving and quality being brought in. The manager ( whoever he may be) needs to fully focus on that, not wasting his time trying to unite the fans who are divided on who got the job and are happy/ unhappy with it. As long as a manager is announced pretty much straight away after Saturdays final and gets to work immediately on signings in key areas with quality I’ll be happy, after all these champions league qualifiers don’t half come around quick style.


8.) 25 May 2019 12:14:07
He never won anything in England but then again neither did Brendan Rodgers.

He's not an exciting name, probably a better manager than he gets credit for but he will be more defensive compared to Rodgers which may be a good thing.


 

 

14 May 2019 23:13:30
Interesting that Lennon and Gary Parker were at the west brom game tonight given they don’t have a manager and Parker isn’t part of Lennon’s backroom staff just now.
