Saw Elyounoussi went off early with a foot injury for Norway.

Really hoping it's nothing serious.


1.) 14 Nov 2019 17:17:51
Don't worry we have Morgan to cover.

2.) 14 Nov 2019 17:34:09
Or Jonny Hayes 👍.

3.) 14 Nov 2019 17:54:30
Lol Kev.

4.) 14 Nov 2019 19:17:49
That's quite good patter for you Kev 😜.

5.) 14 Nov 2019 20:33:07
Sinclair might get a chance and about time too.
Oh look, i've just spotted a pink elephant flying by.

6.) 15 Nov 2019 09:14:44
Only way sinky playing is if the tea lady has blown her cruciate ligaments.



28 Aug 2019 17:28:59
I’m being told we are signing Melling and Fousseni Diabate on season loan from Leicester (I’ve not heard of the latter) .

Both expected to be confirmed by tomorrow.


1.) 28 Aug 2019 17:51:55
Where u hearing this tompo?

2.) 28 Aug 2019 18:08:24
Diabate looks a good player to be fair.

3.) 28 Aug 2019 18:10:09
Diabate is he type 1 or two? 🙈😂😂.

4.) 28 Aug 2019 18:16:26
Tompo88 is the Meling a Loan or permanent deal?

5.) 28 Aug 2019 18:28:54
Heard off my dad Danny who has a few pals that seem to know about these things before most.

Could be load of rubbish (considering the way this window has gone) just passing on what I've heard. I guess we'll see by tomorrow.

6.) 28 Aug 2019 18:36:19
They were both named in a post on KDS along with Bauer this morning.

7.) 28 Aug 2019 18:54:02
Nice one tompo, hope your right 👍🏼 Been talking about melling all window lol! Be a good solid addition if it happens.

8.) 28 Aug 2019 18:54:46
Really would prefer us to have no dealings at all with Leicester - for obvious reasons - but we do need players in from somewhere?

9.) 28 Aug 2019 19:11:13
Meling permanent is what I was told Rich, the Leicester lad on a season loan.

10.) 28 Aug 2019 19:23:09
Diabate does don’t look a holding midfielder?

11.) 28 Aug 2019 20:14:08
Cheers Tompo88 fingers crossed mate.

12.) 28 Aug 2019 20:27:39
What is the big thing about people not wanting to deal with Leicester?
They gave Rodgers the option to stay until the end of the season and he said no.
They paid the £9m compensation so what's the problem?
Will we never do business with Arsenal or Southampton because they had the nerve to buy our players?

13.) 28 Aug 2019 20:38:19
Duff Lennon has said several times he wants to add more attacking players.

14.) 28 Aug 2019 21:05:27
Kev he looks fast and has good feet.

15.) 28 Aug 2019 21:17:03
Diabate looks a player from what i've seen i would welcomr him box to box midfielder.

16.) 28 Aug 2019 22:59:44
Johnboy; it's nothing to do with clubs who have attained our staff. It's about opening up a line of trade with a team who's manager has designs on our best players and tried to get Cal-Mac on the English deadline day and I would never want to get into a situation of reciprocal 'favours'.

17.) 28 Aug 2019 23:08:30
He’s plays on either wing or striker not a clue how good he is never heard of him but Meling is a big one think he’ll do well for us 👌.

18.) 29 Aug 2019 07:53:05
Oab if Rodgers and Leicester want to bid for calmac or anyone else do you really think that us loaning or not loaning a player will make one bit of difference?
And if anyone think that calmac isn't going down south in the next few years your aff your nuts.

19.) 29 Aug 2019 08:19:08
Loan players there hunting them down got one already out of nowhere so don't be surprised what turns up just phone up as long as your for loan your in Paul lambert scouted our loan player phoned lennon OK tell him bring his boots he signed.



12 Mar 2019 10:29:00
Interest shown in centre back Srdjan Babic from Red Star Belgrade.

Big bit of a boy at 6'5, 22 years old and apparently was very impressive for Red Star in Champions League recently.

With him and Ajer at the back we certainly wouldn't be losing too many aerial battles.




19 Feb 2019 13:00:18
Anyone know or seen much of the bhoy John Mahon from Sligo Rovers that we apparently keen on?


1.) 20 Feb 2019 15:48:45
6.1 cb who allegedly a load of teams are tracking one being sevco highly rated.



30 Oct 2018 14:11:23
Noticed Arzani didn't wasn't in reserve squad that played QOS last night. Could we perhaps see him in the squad tomorrow?


1.) 30 Oct 2018 16:29:53
That would be a refreshing development. We fans like to see new talented blood running out in the famous Hoops. He’s highly rated in Australia and Man City didn't buy him for nothing. (He’s only 19) .

I’d like the club to start signing targets on pre contracts. So we know who we’re getting in January and the summer.

It shows a proactive mindset and delivers upbeat news for fans in the cold winter months. It beats emergency cash splashing in hours before windows close. No more of that thanks!

2.) 30 Oct 2018 16:42:06
Arzani can step into left wing, right wing and attacking midfield.

He can give a break for Sinclair, McGregor, Rogic, Christie or Forrest after Leipzig and cup semi exertions.

3.) 30 Oct 2018 17:15:41
Hopefully we can see the boy playing and see if he is good enough. I think he will be, but, if Rogers won’t okay him send him back so he can gain what he needs most, game time. It’s not the boys fault it was Lawwell who brought him.

4.) 30 Oct 2018 19:04:42
I don’t think we know who brought him. I posited speculation and a “what if” a week or so ago.

Regardless of his route into the club, if he’s good enough he should play. In my book after 4 months of reserves, he deserves a showing or two or three.

Kouassi and Ntcham should be benched for a bit. Mulumbu is on a jury’s out naughty step, it appears.

It’s going to be a young fast attacking midfield if he partners Christie.

5.) 30 Oct 2018 19:22:52
He's a 19yr old boy from another country. His time will come if he's good enough. Brendans strong point is player development he knows what he's doing. Took Tam Rogic a while to get going.

6.) 30 Oct 2018 19:35:22
I wouldn’t rest Sinclair
He’s had plenty time on the bench of late and is just staring to spark again.
See what the young lad can do in the centre - pull the strings and give Rogic a rest for the weekend.

7.) 30 Oct 2018 20:47:27
The last think sinky needs is a rest he needs a run of games now.

8.) 30 Oct 2018 21:18:41
Island Celtic

If you were in charge of Celtic. You would throw the boy into Dundee away on a cold Wednesday night to see what he can do.

Thank God your not in charge.

9.) 30 Oct 2018 21:49:14
Would you try him against hearts at the weekend then?

What’s playing at Dundee in the cold got to do with it?

Maybe you sneak over at bedtime and tuck him in?

Give him a start at the worst team in the league - makes more sense to me, but I’ll bow down to your knowledge there. Aye.

10.) 31 Oct 2018 00:38:59
Speaking as a bhoy who now lives in Australia, young Arzani will find our winters very hard to cope with, Aussies hate the cold, but Rogic has Aclimatised. I think he will be a good option for us.

11.) 31 Oct 2018 08:03:04
Island Celtic

Thanks for admitting my superior knowledge. Joking aside can't recall us ever going to Dens park and not having a hard game. They fight for every ball. Parkhead when we are winning last 20minutes is when I would introduce him.

It's pointless because the young yin won't start. He told me last night while I was tucking him in.

12.) 31 Oct 2018 08:26:58
Everyone goes on about this lad being brought in without BR knowing about it. Yet the lad said on the day he agreed to join us that he was desperate to come here after speaking to BR on the phone for over an hour.

13.) 31 Oct 2018 10:55:41
Nakasjockstrap, that could have been PL on the phone putting on a soft Irish brogue voice.

He is quite clever. He might even hire a guy with the same voice.

Once you become all powerful and control all people and all the money and all the SFA, you do crazy daft things for the fun of it.

Then again, he could be a BR target. But that’s just boring.

14.) 31 Oct 2018 12:07:58
Rodgers said mulumbu is injured. He said he back training this week.

15.) 31 Oct 2018 19:23:29
Happy Hoppy

Your response cheered me right up today!
Good to see our boy is on the bench though.

Maybe get a glimpse of him later.

Celtic Player Sightings page entitled, What's this


1.) 27 Aug 2019 22:27:54
Those signings could win them a cup.



19 Aug 2019 21:00:36
Surely this Ibe loan being reported again tonight is nonsense considering Eddie How came out and stated he's going nowhere as he has injuries in that area?

Not a lot of other chat which is worrying but in a perfect world I'd want

Gumny for RB £5-6 million being reported and would offset that with.

Taylor for LB. Cheaper option that Meling and as good as the latter was going forward he wasn't exactly great in defence. Taylor would imo be more solid option and a different one to Boli

Wanyama on season loan or the Ecuadorian under 21. Really thing we need a proper CDM

Benkovic on loan, seen that is now second week he's not even been in Leicester squad. Injury to Ajer and we are in trouble

I'd be very happy with that. Potentially another loan for an established winger in English PL who ain't getting a game would be a bonus. Although we have a good few majority are young and think that would give us a proper starting 11 that picks itself

Loan out a few lads if possible.


1.) 19 Aug 2019 22:39:18
Listen the DR are now reporting that there is no interest in IBE from sources inside Celtic park I am beginning to believe nae body is coming in.



10 Jul 2019 00:07:04
In all honesty a decent RB, young understudy, CAM and back up CB and I'd be happy. But if we're talking perfect window for the banter.

I'd go for this Huddersfield boy for RB. Smith and also test the water with a bid for Gumny from Lech Poznan. Latter has had a few injuries but as far as I'm aware was rated in January at around £3-4 Mill and has bags of potential (getting both obv depends on player sales)

Either get Benkovic back on loan (as we have 3 potential starters signed long term) or a young CB with potential that we can develop

If KT goes - Nice lad Perraud (spelling)

Baller of a CDM with cash from hopeful Ntcham sale (no specific suggestions but if we're getting silly I read other say Wanyama has been told to find new club - lol imagine) But back to reality though young lad with some potential would do nicely, although I still hold some hope for Kouassi. See he's been included in Champions League squad, this is make or break season. Also have young Luca Connell so not a priority position IMO

Sawyer for CAM to compete with Rogic and Christie (if need be although prefer him at CM alongside McGregor)

ST - if that Leeds boy Roofe is in last year of his contract and available for £5 mill I'd take him (although dubious that's the case sure he'd go for more last year or not) If not a season loan for a young lad along same lines as Weah last season. If Griff and Bayo push on this isn't even required but with last season in mind risky chat we don't need this season

Thought Morgan was done after poor Sunderland loan and jury still very much out but impressed tonight. We still have Arzani and Shved to judge as well

Exciting times. Hopefully get a wee look at big Jullien against Rennes at the weekend HH.


1.) 10 Jul 2019 05:11:13
I don't think suggestion of Wanyama is silly at all. You never know with football.

2.) 10 Jul 2019 07:06:24
There a big striker in Danish league Robert Skov I’ve heard good things of him. A big lump of a lad and knows how to find the net.

In my opinion this is an important piece of the jigsaw that needs to be addressed.

There is suppose to be several clubs monitoring the guy.

3.) 10 Jul 2019 11:39:04
I keep reading about Gumny but has anyone ever seen him play? His name seemed to come out of thin air last January with no real evidence of Celtic interest.



07 Feb 2019 17:26:41
Just seen there that Jozo is in the dock for coming together with Shaw.

I’ll guarantee you what will happen is Jozo will get off but so will they two thugs McGregor and Morelos and this will be their way of taking the heat off by letting our player off the hook as well.

Is getting so blatant… not even trying to hide it now.


1.) 07 Feb 2019 18:18:14
No doubt Morelos will get let off and sevco will get 2extra league games at the end of the season against the top 2 sides in the championship as compensation for refs victimising him haha have I went too far.

2.) 07 Feb 2019 18:31:00
Maybe not too far 😂.

3.) 07 Feb 2019 18:40:48
That's exactly what will happen Tompo. It's getting that predictable what happens when The Sevies are concerned that Timalloy is making a fortune at the bookies with red cards, yellow cards and penalties. Wonder if they"ll take a bet on the outcome of the appeal 🤣.

4.) 07 Feb 2019 20:11:23
Has McGregor even been cited.

5.) 07 Feb 2019 20:33:15
Morelos will get away with it because they've set the bar with the brown and ralston incidents.

6.) 07 Feb 2019 21:30:03
never know? They have 3 easy enough matches next they know they could easy win without HIM. So why not give him a suspension now to hide up the fact there not going to let rangers get away with if at much. Which in a away makes sense in away. Look I don’t know I over think sh1t and had couple J’s maybe just being PARANOID! Lol.



23 Jan 2019 10:32:19
Looks like we have got the Ukrainian Maryan Shved! Apparently we were the club he was talking to the other day meaning he did not travel with his team and deal should be wrapped up within next few days (believe this is being reported by Ukrainian media)

Realise we have got quite a few attacking options but from small amount I’ve seen boy looks like very tricky winger. Can play left but prefers right, cutting in and is left footed. Bhoy certainly can score goals as well… could be a very promising signing.


1.) 23 Jan 2019 11:34:26
My issue with this is BR seems to be contradicting himself. He says we won't bring in defenders unless they're better than what we've got or will go straight into the team but will we have an attacking 4 of Weah, Burke, Shved and Bayo? I highly doubt it.

2.) 23 Jan 2019 13:38:25
Ok realistically how many top class defenders are out there who we could afford and who would want to come and ply their trade in Scotland. Genuine answers and names to that simple question would help me understand all the negative posts that monopolise this site, particulary in transfer windows.

3.) 23 Jan 2019 14:48:07
That's up to the scouting team Loyal and it's also not the point. BR has stated he will not stockpile players and then brings in 3 attackers with potentially another one on the way.

I may be in the minority here. I thought Meling was dynamite in all the games against us for Rosenberg, stood out like a sore thumb.

However I think Taylor is more so what we need atm. Boli (who I'm not writing off yet at all) was very highly rated at Rapid as an attacking fullback as well, performances getting better with minutes but Taylor I think gives us something different.

Taylor from what I have seen of him does his job in defence first and foremost and especially in Europe I think we will definitely need that the way we play under NL. I'd go as far as saying if he was signed earlier he'd be my pick for tomorrow.

Time will tell but I'm very happy after yesterday's announcement. I'm happy with todays. And I see Wanyama still hasn't signed Brugge deal yet, if we could somehow pull that off it (unlikely I know but still possible) would totally flip a previously underwhelming window into an epic one. HH.

Am I right in thinking the lad can play at CB as well?

I was told that was his main position for Man U youngsters but he played at RAB a lot of their season due to injuries.
