As we approach tomorrow’s crucial game there are a fair few rumours doing the rounds with regard to a possible “big name” signing.

It has been suggested that James McCarthy could be approached about a move to Celtic with funds seemingly available to make it happen.

Here’s the thing though.

Is the “Marquee Signing” we crave already here?

If we have the wherewithal to sign guys like James McCarthy is the permanent acquisition of current Man City loanee Patrick Roberts unrealistic as previously thought?

City paid upwards of £6million for the winger with add-ons climbing to £12million based on appearance fees etc.

I’ve said this before but there are so many reasons why this lad should sign for us and fewer reasons for him to leave.

Reasons to stay:
Guaranteed first team football
Champions League appearances
Fan adulation
Enhanced profile via European games
Enhanced Sponsorship Deals
Trophies & Accomplishments
Shop window for world’s biggest teams
Shop window for National Team
New manager at City / New ideas
Recent (mega bucks) signings by City (2 x wingers )
Calibre of recent signings by Celtic
Calibre of Celtic manager & backroom team
World renowned Atmosphere at Celtic Park
Etc Etc….

Signing this player should be the priority for Brendan, perhaps it already is.

If he leaves at the end of the season he will break Kieran Tierney’s heart.

  1. I have been saying this for ages, the bhoy loves it here and why wouldnt he life is really always about belonging and i reckon he feels at home with our great club and i am sure we are trying to secure this HAIL HAIL in Brendan we trust

  2. How good it would be to have Patrick Roberts as a permanent signing. If he is available at a decent price then he would be a great investment for another three years. The hatchet men of the Scottish game would have him black and blue every week, but he would run rings around them. Mostly you know who.!!!

  3. Am I. The only one that is no getting carried away just a few weeks ago PL was desperately trying to penny pinch over Sinclair deal and the guy comes up the road smashes it so a can’t see us paying even 5-6 million on paddy Roberts . The truth be told here even if he is bought first bud over 9.5 -10 million he gets driven there by peter lawell himself rather than force these epl to part with the kind of sums we should be getting. My opinion is bank balances over trophy cabinet
