One great bit of business was...

We sold Dicks to Liverpool for 2 million, he flopped up there and we bought him back for 500 grand and he rediscovered his form...

Should have been capped by England. Pearce was a great left back though so Dicks did have serious competition.

Hey i tell you who i like....

Bobo Balde.

He looks a right brute and i have seen him a few times when Celtic have been on the TV. He looks a real tough defender but when he gets forward he is like a raging bull, no one can stop him...

yer about balde, he can be good and is strong and does some great last ditch tackles, and we got him for nothing, his passes are sometimes out of control and does silly things, pity he suffers alot of racist abuse sometimes

Celtic chairman Brian Quinn has given supporters the news they had been dreading by revealing there would be no pot of gold for manager Martin O'Neill to spend.

The club revealed at its Annual General Meeting on Wednesday that its debt had fallen to 15million from the 17.78million of the previous financial year.

But, despite landing a five-year 25million sponsorship deal with sportswear giants Nike, the Northern Irishman was told they had to remain stringent in order to wipe out their debt.

O'Neill has only brought in Juninho on a free transfer from Middlesbrough and Henri Camara on loan despite losing Henrik Larsson and other influential stars.

But the Parkhead chairman warned the shareholders and fans at the AGM the club must remain careful for the foreseeable future unless they achieve surprise success in Europe.

yer, not very good about the money, we lost larsson, a player called jamie smith who was just a squad player, mjallby and liam miller. and just get in juhinho and camara, that is the money we had aside for transfers,

although, we still too good for rangers so that guarantees a bit of money for the league

i think we need to get rid of players like hedman, petta, sylla, fernandez etc they are junk

and there dermet desmond, he has stakes in man utd to i believe, and he dont do much with celtic, its like a conflict of interest

After not exaclty setting the league a light with his flair and creativty juhinho has promised to improve


Celtic midfielder Juninho has pleaded for time to prove himself to the club's fans.

The Brazilian international has admitted he is frustrated by his start to life in Glasgow after arriving from Middlesbrough in the summer

celtics attacking player put on a good performance yesterday and juhinho also managed to bag his first goal for the club


Juninho scored his first goal for Celtic in their 3-0 win over Hearts.

The Bhoys extended their lead at the top of The SPL to eight points, although Rangers can restore the status quo on Sunday, with a comfortable display at Parkhead.

Martin O'Neill's charges were made to wait until the 41st-minute to take the lead, with Henri Camara the man in the right place.

Celtic midfielder Neil Lennon has told the Parkhead board the club are "going backwards" after failing to spend on squad strengthening following the UEFA Cup final.

The former Northern Ireland international was part of the Hoops' team which crashed to a 3-0 defeat by Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine on Wednesday.

The team are now in danger of failing to qualify for the UEFA Cup as third-placed team in their group.

After finishing as runners-up to Porto in the UEFA Cup in May 2003, Celtic boss Martin O'Neill has not been allowed to break the bank to strengthen his squad.

Now the midfielder believes the board are letting the hard work which led up to the game in Seville go to waste.

Lennon said: "We have put in so much good work in Europe and we don't want that to start ebbing away, but it's looking that way at the minute unless we can strengthen the squad. Maybe not now but definitely next season.

"If that doesn't happen then we're just going to be the whipping boys all the time.

Celtic striker Chris Sutton has been ruled out of action for the forseeable future because of a chest injury.

The former England international joins a lengthy casualty list ahead of Saturday's league trip to Motherwell and next week's must-win Champions League clash at home to Shakhtar Donetsk.

Sutton, who also plays in midfield and defence, suffered a muscle strain setting up John Hartson's first goal in Wednesday night's 3-2 Parkhead defeat by Aberdeen.

Ultrasound tests performed earlier today confirmed he would have to be sidelined for "the next few weeks", according to the club's official website, celticfc.net

Manager Martin O'Neill said: "We are obviously very disappointed as this is a big blow but it is one we will all simply have to recover from."

Alan Thompson, Henri Camara and Stephen McManus missed the Aberdeen game through injury and a number of others played despite not being fully fit.

John Kennedy, Shaun Maloney, Ulrik Laursen, David Fernandez and Joos Valgaeren had also been unavailable through injury.

its bad news about sutton, he is a very important player and the one thing you get with him, he is always going to do his best, and lennon is right, we do need to get some more quality added to the side,

being doing bad recently, losing alot of goals which aint common

o'neill would like to see the winter break introduced again as he says there is just to much games


Celtic boss Martin O'Neill would like the Scottish Premier League to reintroduce the winter break.

O'Neill was unhappy that The SPL scrapped the winter break, as he feels they are playing too many games.

Celtic look set to be boosted by the return of defender Stanislav Varga for the Champions League match with Shakhtar Donetsk at Parkhead.

The Slovakian missed the win over Motherwell with a virus but he looked to have recovered from that which is good news with the defence conceding goals at an alarming rate.

Manager Martin O'Neill is also hoping that Henri Camara recovers from an ankle injury while other players have been carrying knocks for a few weeks.

Team (from): Marshall, Hedman, Douglas, McGovern, Balde, Varga, Sylla, McNamara, Juninho, Pearson, Lambert, Lennon, Petrov, McGeady, Hartson, Agathe, Wallace, Cuthbert, Beattie, Thompson, Valgaeren, Petta, Camara, Varga.

UEFA again this year! Can't progress in the Champions League.

yer, it looks that way, although, we better make sure we get another point at least. as we are level on points with shaktar and they have better goal difference i think

in fairness though, milan and barcelona, not the easist of groups


Celtic kept their slim Champions League hopes alive with a nervy 1-0 win over nine-man Shakhtar Donetsk.

Alan Thompson's first half free kick was enough to give Celtic all three points against Shakhtar who had Anatoli Tymoschuk and Cosmin Barcauan both sent off.

Bobby Petta is looking for a new club after agreeing a settlement to leave Celtic.

i think this is important as juninho has not been a great player for celtic yet, but in fairness, it takes time to adapt

and he has been on the bench a few times, but in time, i think he will turn good


eltic manager Martin O'Neill has insisted that Juninho can be a success at Parkhead.

The Brazilian has failed to make the expected impact since his move from Middlesbrough earlier this season.
