Nevermind the shite player being linked.

Again its mentioned Christie is in the finally months of his contract.

It appears no one know if his contract runs out in December this year or July next year?

If he has offers from french teams he should go there. It will improve him as a player and from a purely Scotland point of view he needs to improve as he has regressed in two seasons. He again looks like an Inverness Caley Thistle player.

Thought it was confirmed his contract was up in December so due to when he was given a new deal and it running for 18 months or similar so it didn't land on the traditional 30th June end?

Is he not basically free to talk to clubs in 10 days with a view to signing for them in January?

I saw somewhere this morning of Christie being linked with Leicester City.

That's even more of a cock up than Eduoard and Ajer. I mean this boy could stay for another 6 months and not kick a ball. As no one is going to pay over 2m for him when in 10 days they can sign him for a free and get him in January.

I don't see Eduoard or Ajer leaving until round about the day before the transfer window closes when Celtic realise they are going to get nothing if they don't reduce their asking price for both.

Oh man this is just too good. Took a major hit to keep players to win a league they never won and now that might cost them at minimum the next two league titles, which could cost them over £80m in missed revenue.

he's not kicked a ball in 12 months so another 6 is not a big deal

I'll admit, I do expect big Flange to improve them somewhat, but if they don't get the finger out and make some signings I'm not sure what sort of team he's going to end up with come the games against Midtjylland!

Surprised there's not been a bit more action that way from them.

Apparently they have triggered a 1 year extension to keep Anthony Ralston

B-D
Ralston will be doing cartwheels. Signed without having to take a pay cut. Happy days...or maybe celtic want to cash in on the multi million transfer fee he'll bring in.

I'd expect that if they held onto their best players (& they actually felt like giving it a go) but as it stands, they seem to be scrambling about in the bargain bins so filling their team with dross likely won't be an improvement, regardless of how he wants them to play. It's intriguing. They could be mid table come December before he ends up in that same bin & Clarke gets the inevitable call to steady the ship.

It will be funny to see if Eduoard and Ajer downtools in case they end up cup tied in the CL or Europa League and say they don't want to feature in those games.

Had a look on KDS for a laugh, some are speculating on their starting XI for the start of the season.
Bain
Taylor Julien Welsh
Forrest McGregor Bitton Soro
Turnbull Johnston
Ajeti

Another couldn't bring himself to post the keeper and defence so just gone for their attacking 'options'.
A front 6 of

Soro McGregor
Forrest Turnbull Johnston
Ajeti

Isn’t bad. It’s not great, obviously, and you’d be wanting high quality, ready to play replacements for Soro, Johnston and Turnbull.

But that front 6 should easily take care of the other 10 teams in the league.

It’s the defence that’s the real worry. Presuming Ajer goes we’ve got one guy (Jullien) who is good enough.

Imagine your defense was so bad that you turn to that 'front 6' for solace!


Trying not to get drawn into the mindset that we have the league won but f*ck me they are comically unprepared.

He’ll do well to get the points total Neil Lennon got.

They'd struggle to finish 3rd with that team

Yeah, 1 wildcard 24 hours before but hoping they have no new players in place apart from that.

Was hoping it would be sooner than the week of.
If any of the new signings are currently playing at the Euros they’re going to be going into the first leg with about a week of training along with their Scottish players.

They really dont learn their lesson do they?

Remember the reason Howe was late was because Bournemouth were still in the playoffs? Well now the reason they don't have a DOF is because it's Maloney and he's busy the noo with Belgium
Maloney looks an odd choice for DoF

A few years of Belgium assistant coach experience and then he’ll be running the show over there and telling Flange what to do?

Looks like a continuation of their recent comical plans to me

Would also be a horrific step down for SM who has a lovely gig currently

20th July
plenty of time to revamp a squad, quarantine incoming foreign players, implement coaching overhaul & new philosophy and start games
That’s my issue about our games. Any signing from outside the U.K. has to do 5 days quarantine down south if they arrive there, or 10 if they come directly here.
Hopefully we get stuff done early
