Seen in the Dr that lennon wants 5 more players has the penny actually dropped that we need these positions or is it the same tripe and we end up with one. These next 2 seasons are the most important in our clubs history and if lawell and his penny pinching ways threatens that there will be hell to pay. Release the purse strings and take us to the promise lands of 10iar.

1994 was the most important year in our clubs history.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 21:02:21
1887 was the most important year in our clubs history.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 22:07:13
1967 then 1998 stopping that lot lol.

1840 was the most important year in our clubs history.

So am I right in hearing that West brom have had a bid accepted for the boy from Brentford of £3 million. We best be trying to match that if we want the boy after we had a £2.2 mill bid rejected a couple of weeks ago. I trust lennon but get the feeling we could be going for 2nd rate players again. God I hope I am wrong but I have seen a lot of hoops fans not happy with this rb/ cb or what ever position he plays, he could be another Bitton.


1.) 26 Jul 2019 10:12:46
scoop. have you watched bitton play recently?

2.) 26 Jul 2019 10:42:22
I'm sure we could have matched that bid (just like we did with Turnbull) ; but maybe the player showed no interest in joining us and
there's a chance he will get paid more - even in the Championship.

3.) 26 Jul 2019 13:09:24
All the fans not happy with this rb/ cb have they even seen the lad play before?
It honestly baffles me how an opinion can be made when they haven't even seen the guy play! All because he isn't the big money stand out European right back we've went for, think people also forget it's not as easy as signing players on fifa or football manager, convincing top players to come to this league can be a very difficult thing to do.
Yes, the guy may turn out to be a poor signing, or he could be a great signing or just about solid enough but I think until then when he's played and had a chance all the negativity from the plastic fans should have a lid on it, wouldn't be surprised if it's the same people who barely go to the matches every week.

4.) 26 Jul 2019 13:19:09
I reckon most folk would be quite happy to have another Bitton. Consummate professional who gives his all and puts the team before himself.

5.) 26 Jul 2019 16:11:11
Biton is class. I actually prefer him playing cb to be honest. Feel it's his best position. Almost like he's too tall to play midfield, as strange as that seems 😂.

6.) 27 Jul 2019 01:01:48
Don't get the sudden fascination with Bitton. Guy has never been good enough for us.

7.) 27 Jul 2019 14:25:19
Bitton is a better player than some give credit for . He has often came in and done a good job for us, in more than one position . A very reliable squad player .



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.


1.) 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!

2.) 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.

3.) 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.

4.) 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.

5.) 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?

6.) 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.

7.) 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 .

8.) 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.

9.) 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.

10.) 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.



29 Aug 2018 19:43:54
Clyde 1 just reporting news out of France dembele to Lyon for 22 million pounds.


1.) 29 Aug 2018 19:57:10
Dembele house up to rent, he’s off, maybe get in touch with Hibs and unsettle Efe.

2.) 29 Aug 2018 20:42:01
Unsettle Effe because we sell Dembelle? What are we going to play him upfront?

3.) 29 Aug 2018 20:50:09
Fs johnbhoy 😂 Wooosh.

4.) 29 Aug 2018 21:11:15
That’s the sort of level Celtic are going for at the moment, rather than some quality, full back, centre back and now centre forward, plenty of quality out there, Efe would run through a brick wall for the club anyhow.

5.) 29 Aug 2018 22:35:07
Big dion dublin made a cracking centre back sure efe can step up with Rodgers talents at developing players.

6.) 29 Aug 2018 23:47:18
At least big Efe will have a decent goal celebration playing up front every week.



08 Aug 2018 12:29:55
Caulker could be on the move. i was hoping it could have been to us Brendan seemed to like the lad. sly sports saying the Australian boy 2 year loan deal.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 13:51:03
Would a accept that if. B b boyota is then sold for £12m with McGinn on a fast jet.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 14:20:14
Looks like McGinn to Villa is all but done. Could be a turning point both the board and BR. Either going to splash the cash or can see BR heading off to the Man Utd job in December when JM leaves.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 14:36:07
Teflon67 just won the mental post of the day
Rogers to man Utd 😂😂😂.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 14:51:06
Kev83, im telling you mate its going to happen. Hahaha .

5.) 08 Aug 2018 16:45:10
Caller is getting looked at for a 1.6 million bid by Leeds.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 16:46:14
You think Jose will last that long Teflon 😆.

Let's face it, lennon was never the answer he was a cheap option. now we the fans are suffering after that embarrassing show. the cheque book now needs to be opened and at least 5 players brought in. one needs to be a quality keeper. This needs to be done asap, we have had months to sort this mess out but according to lennon it takes time to look at players. what was he doing during pre season? HH.


1.) 16 Aug 2019 13:33:15
There is no chance PL will release money to sign 5 players. Will be lucky if it is one.



01 Aug 2019 10:34:08
Just out of curiosity when is the transfer window shut for the next European round, as Neil has said we were looking to get a couple in for that. the transfer talk has some what gone quite. but With adebayour, sturridge and whoever else the media is trying to spin on us is outstanding reporting. not HH.


1.) 01 Aug 2019 12:03:14
Scoop, I think its tonight at 11pm.



31 Jan 2019 07:59:14
So it looks like another piss poor transfer window without getting in what we actually need a cb and a rb. didn't Rodgers say our team would be a lot better for when valencia came calling.


1.) 31 Jan 2019 09:43:15
We are better already.

2.) 31 Jan 2019 09:43:26
We will get a rb.

3.) 31 Jan 2019 10:21:29
I'd say we're stronger and we've not even seen bayo.

4.) 31 Jan 2019 11:03:33
As an auld bhoy that saw some really hard and lean times in the early 60's, mid 70's, 80's and 90's and long periods of no European football; entering tournaments like the Texaco Cup and Anglo-Scottish Cup:- this is one of the best periods of success and good football we have seen - and it's still continuing.
There will always be positions we shoulda/ coulda strengthened, but the players we currently have are not really doing such a bad job - are they really? and our attacking players are a joy to watch.
'Always look on the bright side' fellow Tims.

5.) 31 Jan 2019 12:56:26
Away and boil yer heid if you think this was a poor transfer window for us.

May I suggest the problem is your expectations and in future you would enjoy things more if you were to temper them with a touch of realism.

6.) 31 Jan 2019 12:58:09
Couldn’t agree more OAB. Going by some of the comments I’ve seen, if some of the our younger fans had been around in previous era’s, I doubt they’d even follow the club.

7.) 31 Jan 2019 14:03:42
Well we've brought in potentially an excellent striker we've strengthened the wide areas we've bought a winger for next year which will balance out losing the 2 loans so for me it's been ok. we've come out it stronger as long as we don't lose anyone between now and 11 tonight. but would like a rb signed before midnight.

8.) 31 Jan 2019 22:53:29
we might get a right back but will he be any better than what we have.



14 Aug 2018 20:20:55
Penny pinching has cost us more than what Brendan probably wanted to spend. the defence is shocking.2-0 down.


1.) 14 Aug 2018 20:36:42
It’s not just the defence. We aren’t a champions league team.

2.) 14 Aug 2018 21:15:32
This is the result of 15 years of downsizing.

3.) 14 Aug 2018 21:56:34
Viking Tim, we need to step up in SPL never mind CL.



30 Jul 2018 10:12:38
If we want players from England Brendan needs to get his finger out as the transfer window closes on the 9th August. i fear this window will be poor I hope I am wrong. there seems to be mixed messages coming out about transfers. Hail Hail.


1.) 30 Jul 2018 10:43:26
You do realise we can still buy players from England after their window closes? They window only closes on their club's buying.

2.) 30 Jul 2018 10:49:39
Come off it scoop every man and his dug know teams from outside England can purchase English based players after there window closes.

3.) 30 Jul 2018 10:50:17
We can still get players from England until the end of August. Only their window closes on the 9th.

4.) 30 Jul 2018 10:53:52
It's just the English teams that can't bring any New players in after that time but they can still sell players after that.

5.) 30 Jul 2018 13:20:14
Guys don't rise to scoop2500.
He's put this crap on about 10 times and been told how the window works each time but then waits a wee while and puts it on again.

6.) 30 Jul 2018 13:34:09
Just checked and I apologise to you all. i miss read the article. its completely stupid what they have done. they can't buy but they can sell. so all the crap can be sold at extortionate prices lol.

7.) 30 Jul 2018 15:38:03
Loan deals galore the end of August.

I can't believe we haven't bought in decent reinforcements when lennon knew the positions, we left our £7mill man on the bench, boli his name must of come out of a lucky bag. Now with kt and Scotty possibly leaving it leaves us up rubbish creak without a paddle. I know we have till the 2nd of September but we could be out of the champions league by then and it's to late. We must show serious intent in getting top class players in. HH.

If we don't sell someone for big money then PL will close the bank, starting to think he wants a bigger bank balance because when he eventually leaves he can say look how much I made celtic. I know it takes ages to bring players in but come on Neil knew months ago what he needed and if we are playing Champions league roulette here again it's a dangerous game to upset the hoops support HH.

After seeing the score from that lot across the city, it says that they are ready for the fight, as we are still plodding along wondering when we will start getting players in. I hope this doesn't bite us in the ass on Tuesday night. as then we have to make it clear to the board that we demand good players bought into the club not the likes of Stephen odonnell.

Aye also on top of all that ajer at RB, we are seriously needing manpower. the check book best start getting opened soon. not keen on boyd but his comment on Peter's bonus must off surely hit home to the rest of us hoop fans.
