Which leaves sevco with a problem as they have two players from Hibs on a option to buy bases,now this team can't pay thier players full pay and have now deferred payment for 3months with no direct income,any payment the get for thier league position has a que waiting for payment,yet they are still trying to match Celtic in the transfer market,with the commitments they have where is the money coming from?? Even if they sell Ell Buffalo which I can't see any money getting spent on a risk like him,whenever Celtic earmark a player they express an interest,this can only be to appease thier supporters.must live in a different world from the rest of us

I'm sure the Buffaloon will move on to bigger and better things. My money is on Bradford.

Great that our club news is about targeting and signing new players for next season.It says a lot about the positive attitude, priorities and professionalism of our club, even in a time of global crisis. We are looking to the future. Focusing on improving our club. Contrast that with what is happening elsewhere. This is why we are champions and will be so again. HH

Can’t see us spending much, if any, money on transfer fees this summer. We may see some loan deals, possibly with option to buy next summer, players out of contract or allowed to leave their club on a free, and a project or two at low financial outlay.
Forster on another season loan a possibility.

We've had some pretty good luck lately with French players -- Ntcham, Jullien, Edouard -- and in the past with Dembele. So Soppy is certainly worth a look.

Don't know, Niall -- I know it's a buyer's market, but why spend money when we don't need to? I wasn't crazy about Turnbull and I'm not a huge fan of Donnelly since I'm not a huge fan of hammerthrowers. This kid from Hamilton might be worth a look.

I'd be tempted to agree Larry but I think we will have to address playing a back 3 without a left sided centre half and Bauer's option to buy won't be taken up, so we are gambling on Frimpong as the only right back/wing back.
Even if we returned to a back 4 El Hamed has a poor record with injuries so far.
I don't like the idea of 'hammerthrowers' either but in Scotland we don't exactly protect our players so we need the odd player who will fight our corner where the refs don't.

OK time to reopen a previous debate. There was no mention of Shankland in your article. Surely we are at least considering such a prolific goalscorer - especially if French Eddy is a target for a number of teams?

I think he could work well partnering Griffiths up front being supplied by Forrest, Christie, CalMac, Frimpong, Rogic, etc, etc. And with his massive forehead he'd be able to score headers from his own half! And he'd cost less than many of the foreign failures we've gambled on and he doesn't need to adjust to the climate or style of football.

Fair enough but the writer is a Celtic fan with decent contacts at the club. We are obliged to reference where any quotes are attributed from. This means that supporters can get their Celtic news from fans media and not the red tops - the other one seems worse to me and Evening Times has faded badly. The Celtic Star has a majority of content that is entirely original, whereas others just lift, cut and paste and call it quick.
