  1. Sounds about wright Celtic should have sorted this out a long time ago dragging there feet .so what happened to the 30 million from last year’s CL ? Sort u self out Celtic put u money on the table so BR can get 1/2 good players in.

  2. It was never going to happen anyway! There was no pre Astana deal. That was tabloid rubbish. The player himself is hedging his bets. He won’t join unless we qualify. It’s obvious.

  3. Nothing to do with CL football sumthing to do with valuation what Celtic offered and what man city would like don’t u think Brian .think the lad would jump at the chance to play for Celtic .

    • Nobody knows what Celtic have offered Andy so any talk of us not offering the right money is pure speculation. Celtic wanted him in. They won’t release the boy and he won’t budge unless we knock Astana out. Simple as that. He’ll be back in the hoops in September I’m sure of it.
