Celtic to get more exposure in USA as ESPN buy Scottish Cup rights.

Nathan Dunn explains all. New writer for TJDS, Nathan Dunn, explains in his first article how Celtic will be benefiting to American audiences this year with ESPN’s new coverage.

Gabbo, or Wanyama, is coming

Gabbo gabbo gabbo Everyone is saying announcement this, and announcement that, but no one is saying right back this, or another loan that! The rumours are rife that we’re making some big announcement today and many seem to believe it’s Victor Wanyama returning to the club, possibly on a loan, but the basis for this has been nothing but vague whatsapp interactions and someone mentioning how ‘Paul The Tim said it’s true anaw’.

Scott Allan, another chance? Do me a favour love!

Read that in the Andy Gray voice It’s often the case that a player who hasn’t played in quite some time for us gets a lot better, without kicking a ball, and his reputation is majorly enhanced.

Oliver Burke and the truth behind ‘55’

This is big news lads. A few days ago, some saddos, including me in an ironic sense, felt it was highly dubious that new on-loan signing, Oliver Burke, had ‘55’ in his Twitter Handle, especially at a time Rangers fans are making big noises about going for their 55th league title.

A hiccup, albeit a concerning one.

Rangers 1-0 Celtic. Games are never settled after a minute, but they don’t half give away the direction one is going to go.

Rogic out of the Rangers game & McGregor’s new deal

Try and get over it lads. The ‘support’ for Tom Rogic on this site is ..unique, to say the least to you can imagine my complete lack of interest or care that he’ll be missing against Rangers on the 29th.

Celtic V Valencia, and some thoughts on that Hibs game.

It’s official – I’m overweight! It’s also official that we will be playing Valencia in the next round of the Europa League.

We’re on our way........somehow!

Baku here we go Celtic put in a dismal performance against Salzburg last night and deserved absolutely nothing from the game, but thanks to the good lads at Rosenborg, who chose the best time to pick up their first point in the group, we are through to the last 32.

Leigh Griffiths taking ‘time out’

Let’s just address what everyone is on about then, Leigh Griffiths will be out for ‘the forseeable’ due to ongoing personal issues, confirmed by the manager today.

Celtic V Salzburg – a throwback

Red Bull is a common sight for ensuring chaos in Glasgow, as half your workplaces in the city will be tanked up on the stuff, causing reckless behaviour and questionable decision making under the influence of a well marketed energy drink.

Ryan Christie – November POTM

Well in Ryany Bhoy After a string of superb performances for club and country, it was no surprise that Ryan ‘No good enough for us according to certain outspoken Celtic superfans’ Christie picked up the November player of the month award.

Motherwell 1-1 Celtic

Baffling stuff. Celtic’s complacency at Fir Park this evening ensured Motherwell earned an undeserved point in a largely frustrating game in Lanarkshire.

Seven out of Seven. Celtic 1-0 Aberdeen.

That treble treble is gonnae win itsel Another trip to Hampden under Brendan Rodgers ended with another piece of silverware to make it seven trophies from seven domestic competitions, and as always, it was as routine as you’ll get.

Rosenborg bodied again by Celtic

Second place surely a formality now There’s a few things in life you can set your watch by.

Rosenborg – who are they and what do they want

Let’s patronise the readers and make out they are an obscure team who we have never heard of.

Celtic smash Hamilton, Rosenborg likely to suffer the same fate.

I predict it The last international break of the season done and dusted then, and Celtic got back to domestic duty with yet another routine win over a team that will survive relegation once more this season due to the teams around them being a lot worse...

“James Forrest not consistent enough to play in the EPL” – Kris Commons

Groan I normally see these articles designed to noise up fans, rack up the hits for online tabloids and essentially ‘get a reaction’ which is the end goal.

The Celtic AGM & James Forrest on fire

Reidzo does it again It’s that time of the year where a jolly rotund man delivers good news to expectant people all over the world.

Celtic stars flourish for Scotland despite KT loss

It’s taken a while, but on Saturday – at long last – Scotland finally clicked and played how we all know they can by taking apart Albania in ruthless fashion – with Celtic’s key midfielders vital to the performance.

Lustig to stay at Celtic?

In a surprising piece of news, Mikael Lustig hinted that he could still be at Celtic next season.

From Leipzig to Livingston – Celtic back on top.

I can be quite critical of Celtic on here, I’m the first to admit that, but after thrashing Hearts and beating Leipzig, a goalless draw at the Anthony Macaroni Arena yesterday was probably a fair result and considering the effort put into Thursday’s game, it would be extremely harsh to shout and bawl about dropping two points, as we’re still back at the top of the league...

Celtic V Leipzig – match details

Tomorrow’s game is officially not a ‘must win’, but it is one we should be aiming to take three points from to spare the definitive must win match against the best team in the group – Salzburg – after this upcoming encounter with their caffeine loving cousins.

Hearts broken again, Celtic focus on Leipzig.

The momentum must carry on I wasn’t about to do the official shoot prediction for Hearts on Friday there due to work commitments, but I was going to say we’d win 5-0 anyway so that’s two in a row for me.

As predicted, Celtic thrash disgraceful Dundee.

The worst team ever in the Scottish Premiership? Dundee that is! The ‘Ten Niller’ patter was a work, the five nil one was a shoot.

Dundee V Celtic – A ten niller imo

Okay, eight. Is there really any point in Dundee turning up tomorrow? If they don’t show up, at least Celtic are automatically awarded a 3-0 win.


Kidding on. Thanks for opening the link. Of course, I am not going to subject the readers to a ‘Here’s the lowdown on the German hotshots’ or a ‘what we need to know’ regarding Thursday’s opponents RB Leipzig, we all follow fitba, we know they’re a German team who had a financial advantage when the war was over and the Red Bulls had won plus more importantly that they’re no mugs and even beat Rangers in a glamour European one off match in January 2017...

Celtic smash Hibs and prepare for Leipzig.

Are we back to our best? Well, in an ever flip flopping season, so far we are, but that opinion could change on Thursday evening after the Leipzig game.

Celtic V Hibs – High scoring game likely?

BTTS for the degenerates. You need to go back to 2010 for the last time a Hibs team left Celtic Park with three points.

Celtic are back, for another month.

International breaks have been going for a number of years, but this year seems like they’re neverending – perhaps because they quite literally are hampering our momentum this season domestically.

Celtic dressing room not at war – Brown

Your favourite week, the ones of the international variety, are back yet again! It’s world class for slow and recycled news so here’s Scott Brown having to come out and say the Celtic dressing room isn’t at war with each other.

Salzburg quickly forgotten as St Johnstone are smashed

They really need to do one. The ongoing concern and rage after a poor European display followed by another routine domestic thumping is going to be a cycle we’ll need to get used to this season, but no one could have expected the complete decimation handed out to a club that are quickly becoming one of my most hated to play against in this league.

Another momentum change

Rangers never Celtic forever ..this week at least. Up until the weekend there, Rangers were getting the plaudits for drawing with Villarreal, and smashing heavyweights like St Johnstone and Ayr at Ibrox.

Shootweek: Brendan V Levein. Part 3.

The bout to knock the other guy out ..again! Brendan Rodgers has sensationally revealed he is capable of an RTP today, when he had a dig at Craig Levein, and Hearts over the potential state of the pitch at Hampden Mania a month from now.

St Johnstone V Celtic – Preview

With both teams having nightmares at the weekend, something has to give tonight between St Johnstone and Celtic, with the winner going to Hampden for the semi finals of the Betfred Cup.

Celtic V Rosenborg Preview

We’ll smash these jobbers imo After Friday’s howling performance and disappointing result against St Mirren, Celtic are back, but thanks to negligence from the manager, certain players and the board over the summer we’re not in the Champions League, but the Europa League, which is still nothing to be snobby about, but a game yet again versus Rosenborg is one nobody is that excited by...

Leigh Griffiths signs new deal

‘Here for ten in a row’ Ahead of tonight’s match with St Mirren in Paisley, striker Leigh Griffiths has pledged his future to the club by signing a new four year contract.

Cheerio Scotland, hello again Celtic.

The break is over, but we’re back. So, Scotland are done and dusted for another month and a bit, and domestic fitba is back...

Celtic end their ‘crisis’

We’re GR-EIGHT haha! My wife left me earlier on. This was supposed to be the game that a marker was laid down by Rangers.

Official: Celtic agree fee with Lyon for Dembele

He’s off. This disastrous transfer window is almost at an end, and it’s been confirmed that Moussa Dembele is heading for the exit door at Celtic Park.
