Nick Hammond confirmed as head scout from 1st July on an advisory basis with a view to making it permanent if we recruit well . hopefully a sign of things to come.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 14:58:52
Ous it not dof or both.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 15:02:05
Love it. Like a wee summer job. Proper professional set up.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 15:25:57
Phil give the boy a chance so negative.

4.) 20 Jun 2019 15:35:58
😂 Phlip. In all seriousness, what's this about?

5.) 20 Jun 2019 15:38:38
Not at all negative. If you can honestly say that a part term temporary trial summer job fills you with confidence and optimism that's great. If what's written is true the club can't even committ to his quality. b.

6.) 20 Jun 2019 16:04:56
have we ever had a DOF? it could be that both parties are willing to see how it works.

7.) 20 Jun 2019 16:10:23
Rodgers was a knee year rolling contract to start so will be similar to that. That's didn't exactly go badly so let's see what he's go and judge this time next year.

8.) 20 Jun 2019 16:13:38
Sorry jt are we talking about my view of it or the actual announcement?

9.) 20 Jun 2019 16:17:00
Phil give it a chance that's all unless you can see into the future and product failure . naw dibny think so.

10.) 20 Jun 2019 16:19:04
The West Brom fans are laughing and warning us about this guy hope he produces.

11.) 20 Jun 2019 16:21:38
Is it not better to give him the job on a temp basis to see how it goes and who he brings in instead of giving him a 3 or 4 year deal and it turns out he signs a load of crap.

12.) 20 Jun 2019 16:22:07
This a recruitment based role, does this mean we won't see any new recruits til after this guys on board?

So once again not strengthening in enough time to negotiate champions league qualifiers 🤔

Or am I picking this up wrong?

I know we just won a treble treble but its worrying with all the players leaving and the ones who are gash.

13.) 20 Jun 2019 16:30:04
Talking about the announcement Phlip. Odd one. He's head of recruitment not a DoF bhoys.

14.) 20 Jun 2019 16:30:32
I'm more a fan of recruitment which identifies quality and people with talent for the job as opposed to having the ability to shift crap easily. Short term summer trials are for seasonal workers and fruit pickers. Bit retrospective recruiting a person to progress summer targets in July. What happened to congertons work?

15.) 20 Jun 2019 16:35:08
Johnbhoy, if they don't have the confidence in this guy to give him a contract then neither do I. This is not how a club of our size should operate.

16.) 20 Jun 2019 17:02:47
Any time I saw wb last year they had some decent players but it'll be nothing to do with this boy doesn't suit the narrative.

17.) 20 Jun 2019 17:58:58
A couple of months may not be long enough, but haven't never really had a proper D of F before it makes sense to me that we should experiment to see how the relationship between D o F works with manager and works with CEO . If we find both can work then we should continue.

18.) 20 Jun 2019 18:06:36
He's head of recruitment Chris doesn't appear he's dof.

19.) 20 Jun 2019 18:40:16
What was jock browns role at the club.

20.) 20 Jun 2019 18:56:11
The Sunderland fans was pissing themselves too about Congerton so it looks like we are being consistent in our choice of HOR.

21.) 20 Jun 2019 19:01:26
I just seen a list of players signed by him at West Brom. Some good players on it.

22.) 20 Jun 2019 19:19:46
I guess you haven't been a supporter very long as this is how our club has been run since MO'N left and probably before that.
Listen to the interview WGS gave about how our transfers are done if you want to know how it goes on with Lawwell and Celtic.

23.) 20 Jun 2019 19:50:27
Think jock Brown's job title was general manager.



20 Jun 2019 02:41:38
Apparently Christopher Jullien is waiting for offers from England and Spain before he commits to anything regarding celtic, does that mean we've made a bid or is just hypothetical at this stage?
If this didn't go through id like to see us go for the likes of Ryan Porteous from Hibs, he seems a good player, physical, fast and good with the ball at his feet.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 06:40:43
Unfortunately I think a lot of the players we are linked with are trying the same they will be using the fact we are after them to See if they can get a better offer in the pub league before they commit to us.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 06:50:04
A said last week it's becoming nearly impossible for Celtic to sign quality because they look to England first.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 08:53:20
Maybe need to put cut off dates on ALL offers to stop us being pissed about. But realistically players owe us nothing. We would all try and maximise out income if we had no emotional connection .



29 Aug 2018 13:45:54
According to sportssound, Rodgers said that Dembele and his representatives met with the club to discuss his future, but no official bids have came in yet.


1.) 29 Aug 2018 13:53:00
Seen that is there any good news jeez.

2.) 29 Aug 2018 13:53:15
Good Afternoon guys!

First time poster, enjoy reading the rumours, keep up the good work.

I know it is a long shot however I think the use of the word ‘Champion’ in Toure’s agents twitter post may be a hint at his likely destination. None of the teams mentioned so far are champions, other than Celtic. Whilst I realise it would take a significant drop in wages for him to come to Celtic, I think there may be something in it.
Or i’m over thinking the post and talking complete garbage 😂🤣.

3.) 29 Aug 2018 14:27:22
They’re in talks with the club about signing a 4 year extension.

{Ed007's Note - 🤞

4.) 29 Aug 2018 14:35:24
Shadow I'm sure his agent also said that any club wouldn't be taking a gamble cos if they weren't happy with his performances he would pay back half his wages. Doesn't sound like he's takin a pay cut to me.

5.) 29 Aug 2018 19:18:11
shadow was thinking same mate, brother here, just became british citizen and game time at 35 not going to be mainstay of any those teams mentioned but would here hail hail.



30 Jul 2018 13:47:27
Was there ever any movement this summer on Caulker at Dundee? I remember there being rumours that Rodgers would be having a look at him after he signed for them in January? Not that I'm eager to sign him, more curiosity than anything lol.


1.) 30 Jul 2018 14:03:39
Tho k that was the papers that said that not brendan.

2.) 30 Jul 2018 16:51:18
Think he got sent home from there pre season camp.

{Ed007's Note - That was to get an injury looked at. There was nothing sinister in it - much to some people's disappointment - but it didn't stop people speculating and just making stuff up anyway.}

3.) 30 Jul 2018 20:14:19
Aye when a read it Ed a thought it was personal stuff. Glad it wasn’t and regardless of where he plays here’s hoping he continues to win his battles.



04 Jun 2018 11:00:52
With all the talk of wide players what about young Johnston, admittedly i haven't seen much of him but what i have seen has looked good, given a good pre season with the first team could he look to be an option this season? Or am i hoping for too much from him lol.


1.) 05 Jun 2018 09:12:06
Not seen much of him myself to be honest but he reminds me of a young sinclair.

2.) 05 Jun 2018 13:22:51
Maybe potential to be better Marco. Would love to see him push on this year he looks great on the ball. Can see why Chelsea were keen to get him. Thankfully he is ours to enjoy for another 4 years atleast.

3.) 06 Jun 2018 00:30:20
If he is quick and can beat a few players and pick out a cross what more can you ask for? I can't see a penny being spent in mf this window and a home grown surprise is never a bad thing in any format eh? ;)

Controversial post . the more I see of Boli the more I like him . there I said it.


1.) 26 Aug 2019 10:17:10
Eq93 you’re not alone in your opinion and it’s early days so hope you’re right and I’m wrong but I must have been watching a different game yesterday. Bombscare.

2.) 26 Aug 2019 10:43:06
Boli will come good, he obviously was given a license to push forward in Austria with little to defend against.

He has the pace and good attacking attributes, just need to sort his positional/ defensive attributes.

3.) 26 Aug 2019 10:44:18
I would put him in the Izzy bracket; very good wide, attacking player, but has not shown much defensively - as yet.

4.) 26 Aug 2019 13:22:05
No way was he a bomb scare
Getting better with every game
He’s still getting up to speed - have faith and back the lad to get his confidence up.
He looks like he may have a goal or two in him this year, if he does score his confidence will go sky high when Celtic park roars for him.



20 Jun 2019 12:30:24
I'm losing the will to live waiting for us to even make a bid for someone . I don't even have anxiety and its through the roof.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 12:42:40
Chill oot thought lennys interview was quite positive there will be players coming in. patience.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 12:56:22
I'll second that, it's torture having no news, however it was to be expected going by our previous windows.
Buy a RB and CB before CL qualifiers and I'd be happy.
People mentioned Robert Gumny with potential to cost, however the lad Did it get off the bench for Poland U21s, Karol Fila had a great game against Chiesa, worth a punt?

3.) 20 Jun 2019 13:24:53
If u need somethin to do go to celtic park trophy room and count the trophies that will keep u occupied for a few days lol.

4.) 20 Jun 2019 14:19:23
Think that jonjoe kenny would be an excellent signing at right back, I would be happy with Jenkinson too though

we will get the right players as someone on here said yesterday it takes a bit longer to get the better quality in as they are keeping options options open too because they can, I’m confident we will here news soon, what about Ronaldo vieira in cm looks very good from what I’ve seen young too so will only get better massive profit in that one in years to come.

5.) 20 Jun 2019 15:44:02
Could be worse, could be raiding league 2 in England for a defender.

6.) 20 Jun 2019 17:03:06
We have already tried to get some one in as well published PL has stated he expects 2 or 3 new players in by the end of this month So I think we should wait and see if he delivers.



29 May 2019 13:03:18
Looking to next season and strengthening in the summer, not to sound too optimistic its not as bad as its made out.
If we get Benkovic back on loan, we would maybe only need 3 or 4 decent signings to really kick on for next season
Goalkeeper isn't an issue.
RB we've Lustig (if he stays) and Ralston, so could do with strengthening there.
CB could be less of a priority if Benkovic stays another season.
Its safe to say Hayes is a decent stand in for KT, but would be good to have another option, or a more natural defender.
Midfield is strong - Broonie, Ntcham, Calmac, Rogic, Forrest, Sinclair, Johnston, Dembele, Hendo, Arzani and Shved.
With Griff and Bayo coming back for this season it looks a lot better than is made out. HH.


1.) 29 May 2019 13:48:47
Think another midfielder is needed rogic usually out for his 3 to 4 months so can't be relied on and although I like ntcham there's doubts about him.

2.) 29 May 2019 14:12:12
And Dembele, Arzani and Shved look promising but whether they will be knocking on 1st team door is not yet known. Bayo is a prime example, £2m and apparently miles off it, even in training .

3.) 29 May 2019 14:27:38
100% agree with both of you . Its just there's a bit of depth and promise there, but like you said i can't see some of the younger lads being starters just yet. I think 3 good players ready to start through the spine of the team should be enough to see us step up a level . but then its all depending on what players we lose players throughout the window.

4.) 29 May 2019 14:28:30
Just to clear up, i wasnt saying we didn't need anyone in those positions, just that we have options there.

5.) 29 May 2019 22:39:20
Any manager that signs 8 first team players in the close season is inevitably looking for a job himself before Easter . Bringing 8 new players into dressing room inevitably leads to serious difficulty in team building.



26 Feb 2019 08:49:36
Woke up to news Rodgers will be leaving with lennon coming in until the end of the season . looks like it's nailed on too, someone please tell me this is wrong 😬.


1.) 26 Feb 2019 09:01:30
Ed please tell us it's not true.

2.) 26 Feb 2019 09:06:02
what a person leaving us half way through.

3.) 26 Feb 2019 09:13:26
We are lucky someone as good as Lennon is available, or it would be worse.
Neil Lennon has fight and will not let the title slip, so bring it on.
We Are All Neil Lennon.

4.) 26 Feb 2019 09:19:36
No we aren't, Lennon isn't the answer
I don't know who is.



26 Oct 2018 16:25:15
Ntcham is stealing a living at the minute, he gave the ball away needlessly 3 times in the first three minutes and about 15 times over the course of the entire game, putting it out for a throw in (bad pass to KT) and then losing the ball again (another wayward pass) in the build up to their second goal, how does he escape criticism week in week out?


1.) 26 Oct 2018 17:08:57
I think he escapes criticism week in week out because he blows hot and cold. He's either great or quite poor really for me. Excusable for a young player but not desirable, no. He has had good games in Europe but like a lot of the side he can deliver poor performances.

2.) 26 Oct 2018 17:23:29
He doesn't want to be here. Goes through the motions punt him.

3.) 26 Oct 2018 21:55:35
You must have missed the Hibs game last weekend? None of our players cover themselves in glory away in Europe. Not one.

Think that's why the IPTV servers were struggling with Celtic TV before they were shut down, Celtic TV were able to block or trace the VPN to block people viewing (i think)

Think we need 4 minimum.
We need at least 1 RB, if Lennon is going to give Ralston more game time then great, but we need someone as an established RB to come in and start.
We need 1, preferably 2 CB, Simo and Ajer have been great but Simo is too injury prone, id be happy to see Benkovic back on loan for this season, and either Mckenna or Jullien come in too.
A natural Lb to cover KT is vital too, Hayes does well when he comes in but can struggle at times, especially against natural wingers.
If we can sort these out then anything after is a bonus, maybe the young guy from Bolton, Luca Connell with an eye to the future and if the board were feeling generous bring in another striker, maybe a target man type player along the lines of Ikpeazu from Hearts,

it looks like the Toljan deal will have an option to buy in the summer so hopefully he has a good few months and we can get him tied down permanently in the summer.
