CELTIC are in the market for a goalkeeper on the eve of the new season beginning.

The bhoys will make their way through to Edinburgh on Saturday to face the returning Hearts who were promoted from the Championship last term.

It’s likely going to be Scott Bain in goals for the first tie of the season – it beggars belief when Celtic fans knew we needed a new goalkeeper back in January.

Out of necessity, many, including myself, tried to get on the Barkas bus. I was an advocate of the goalkeeper getting the gloves and showing what he can do after a poor debut season for the club.

However, after the howler against Midtjylland and his subsequent performance against West Ham, any faith which was placed in him evaporated fast.

Celtic are keen on bringing Joe Hart to the club to fill the position. The 34-year-old has been playing backup at Spurs last season but is looking to move on.

RecordSport are now reporting Spurs want £1m for their goalkeeper – if they’re to let him leave this summer. Affordable for Celtic but will they insist on a lower fee because he really is surplus to requirements in London?

Joe might not be the full time answer but he might just have enough to put Celtic back in the picture this term.


  1. A 34 year old keeper who hasn’t played for ages, really? Is this where we’re at. It’s not difficult to sign a decent keeper but yet again we watch in disbelief the total incompetence of those at the club. I said we would be out of everything by Christmas, it’s taken one round to put us out the CL if we don’t sign three good defenders, at least one quality midfielder, a left sided wide player and another striker we won’t compete again this season. Fans are being short changed yet again

  2. Plenty keepers out there that would give there all same as players if you pay the asking price and wage you can buy nearly every player instead of profit first lets put out money that will cover us for the next 10 seasons with top players at Celtic stop being a small club with no money invest in the players that can take us in to CL groups year in year out then we make plenty money on top of that more money comes in from player sales and media big money from merchandise plus sponsors do this make the loop it pays every ones wages plus profit… Season ticket sales is only a small part of the income do this Celtic and become a big club…
