Bayo, Weah and Burke in. Now for a right back and centre back and we are good to go.
Underwhelming, mediocre signings if ever there were ones. £15-£20M centre back needed urgently.

This is the Celtic thread, you know! If you want £15m signings support Bournemouth.

Murdoch owned PSG and Man Utd?

No, the Brits blocked the purchase, should have been clearer.  But to get as far as he did he sold his stake in PSG.

I cant see DD selling his stake in Celtic foir a seat on Rovers board, can you?

You think DD hasn't thought of that? My guess is his advisors are well versed in the ins and outs of the law. Maybe hold your fire til you've seen the detail.

Jesus I thought it was the opposite a thrilling game between two top teams giving it everything thoroughly enjoyable and 3 great goals to boot.

Makes it interesting from now on looking forward to the run in.

It was enjoyable but hardly thrilling! Was a bit like two boxers dancing around the centre of the ring landing the odd good punch.

Getting slightly concerned at the minute, just listening to Talksport and that hun Jim White absolutely creaming himself at the Defoe signing, we do need a few decent players in but after the lack of transfer activity in the summer Iím not overly confident that the quality will be added, but then who do you go for?

We are caught between two things, needing quality and needing to watch what we spend. The quality we need is too expensive and what we can afford is not good enough or may be considered a punt. Unfortunately, players like Wanyama, VVD and Dembele are the exception. One type of player like this every three years or so isn't going to improve anything but our bank balance. And Defoe isn't the answer for us either.

Some signing for the Gers.

Rodgers may put the foot down with the Celtic Board now. They were outclassed last week. Defoe, albeit 36 years old will be lethal in the SPL!

I'd say SG is pushing hard now after the last Old Firm result.  He'll be bending the ear of the board looking for reinforcements like this and S Davis also going back.  Adding experience and goalacoring for the final drive.

I hope Lawell is watching on.  He'll need to splash the cash now and crush this mini rebellion or he'll never live it down.

Would Joe Harte be willing togo to Celtic as he seems frozen out?  What wages would he be on anyway...even a loan deal for 18 months?

Gordon isn't great but eff right off with Hart!
Great forward planning by Rangers, a 36 and a 33 year old! What happens if they don't win the league? When is the last time a player came to Scotland from England and scored a shed load? There are numerous examples of players failing in Scotland and being relatively successful elsewhere. FFS Darryl Murphy is still cutting about the Championship.

Are you saying you wouldn't take Defoe on loan now for the Celts?

He'd be excellent - still pacy enough, a proven goalscoer and experienced.   

Defoe wouldn't be excellent but it would depend on the alternatives for Celtic. However, if seen it before where we've signed a player at this stage of their career and it hasn't worked. Anyway, Defoe has hardly played for two years.

Thought Iíd wait a day or two before posting to let the dust settle and think it thru properly and tbh I still canít make sense of it, I canít understand how we let the huns bully us, I canít understand the lack of fight and intensity, I canít understand how so many players were terrible in the same game and I canít understand how BR picked the team he picked (I know itís easy to say that now in hindsight).
As you all know Iím not usually one for criticising the team but there is one or two that simply canít escape it...the first and general is Boyata, I would take a £10er for him and get him out the door. What he done with us in the summer Iíll never forgive and his display on sat stank so bad, who the f**k does he think he is. Heís rank and with his attitude Iíd never want to see his face again.
Lustig is finished and his lack of pace and body strength are being exploited regularly, in his defence itís not his fault. If Brendan continues to play him then thatís BRís fault.
S sinclair is a bit like Lustig to be fair as itís not his fault he gets picked, we all know he can play and heís got the pace and skills of the game but what gets me is the lack of bravery and guts. How can you be brushed off the ball so easily, without even a fight. The lack of fight in the man is what pisses me off with SS, you donít need to be a big guy to have a bit of fight in you. Iíve a ten year old in the house whoíd put up a better fight but thatís something you canít put into a man, if youíre yellow youíre yellow.
I may be wrong here and I thought he was hard man but benkovic surprised me by going off on Saturday, I believe he didnít have the stomach for the fight and went off very easily (hope Iím wrong). Heís only a loanee so wonít lose to much sleep over that.

On the transfers...BR is under a bit of pressure to deliver as weíve had two bad windows in a row and itís bit us on the ass, the good thing is weíve a chance to recover and redeem ourselves in the second half of the season. Provided Lawell gives him the money, I know for a fact NL left his Celtic job as Lawell wouldnít back him. In fact not only wouldnít Lawell ack him but he started to sell players that NL didnít want to sell and there were two players that NL wanted a new contract for and Lawell wouldnít give them one so he just couldnít work there any longer

Don't disagree too much. However, Benkovic went off injured recently and I'm not sure he was 100% for this one. Same for Lustig. KT would have started if he'd been anywhere near fit. So I think if this had been another match and not the last before the break we may have seen a completely different back four with Ralston, Ajer and Hayes/Izzy starting. It's increasingly obvious Brown and Ntcham don't really work together so playing McGregor at LB was a mistake. Johnston up front on his own was baffling. I couldn't understand the reluctance to alternate the front three earlier either. This only happened when Edouard came on.
Anyway, that's done and reality is we have had performances like that this season against weaker teams so a loss wasn't a massive surprise. We will regroup and should still win the league but perhaps we've underestimated the quality of the other teams.

What Tyrone done to Kerry in the semi final 2003 Rangers done to Celtic today. They absolutely hounded Celtic and hunted in packs. No one had time on the ball. One nil defeat flattered Celtic, if it wasn't for the keeper it could have easy have been a 3 0 hammering. The only thing for Rangers is they absolutely emptied the tank today and it's very hard to replicate that.

Exactly, they played their max, we were almost at our worst. Celtic are still top with a game in hand. Time off is well needed. Only positive is, BR no longer has that unbeaten tag against them to weigh us down. Similar to when the invincibles eventually were beaten, it was almost a relief.

That performance wasn't a surprise in the context of our season so far. Rangers are not very good but today we made them look like a superb team. We were a bit hampered by injuries but we should still have had more than enough to beat them.

The ref had no real bearing on the result but I hate the number of niggly fouls he let them away with. No hiding it and Morelos should have been off three times.

Yep go with Hayes if KT isnít fit, Iím always wary going to that shithole but Celticís superior footballers should get us the 3 points and leave gerrard to reflect on a terrible decision to ever go near that place, 3-1 Celtic

From the outside looking in, is Gerrard not playing a blinder (or BR is having a stinker or a bit of both) having Rangers sitting 2nd? He keeps this up he'll be managing in the english Championship next year if he wants it I'd say or maybe even the Premier league

Celtic has won the treble twice in last 2 years - really hard to keep that going, regardless of the opposition.  Although in saying that, they're not as strong as they have been recently. 

Rangers are where they've been this past few years at this stage of the season. They are no better off points wise as the 2 years  before so it's an illusion that they're better.  SG has gave them a short term boost but they'll have to spend money (that they don't have) to progress. One useful addition is Mc Gregor, their keeper.  He'll save them 10pts this season I'd say.

To suggest Slippy is playing a blinder suggests some one is reading the hype. Celtic have stuttered in the league due to a combination of factors but are still top. Hopefully after today and a win in the game in hand the gap will be nine points.

How Wiilie Colum continues to get matches at this level beggars belief.

It's a jobs for the boys club, unfortunately. Not talking football allegiance bias as much as geographic bias. Most referees are from the central belt/Ayrshire. Collum is just the most recent in a long line of referees who get the top jobs through favouritism rather than ability.

Aberdeen had one main tactic, to disrupt and hack at us the whole match. May was only on the pitch to niggle at our players it seems, McGinn should have had a red, as should Cosgrove near the end, first was probably a penalty but I'd wager we don't get that one, the second was a joke and gave them a lift again when we had them reeling, they hardly had the ball in the second half until Celtic scored the fourth.
Gordon isn't great, Izaguirre works against less robust teams only, Edouard needs to start against rangers.

Going in the right direction is great.. getting over the line is something else.. Ffs Leicester won the league and Liverpool being lauded as Barcelona ffs  ;D

I totally agree they need to win something. Iím not a Liverpool supporter btw although I donít mind them as theyíre a bit more humble than Utd fans having lived through the barren years... you lads will get there soon  ;)

Iíve been in old Trafford during the 80ís all barren

Aye, football didn't start in 1992.Liverpool were arrogant in the 70's and 80's. Loved seeing united beat them. Vice versa in the 90's and 00's. Bottom line is United have won more even in last three years than Liverpool. Supporters will soon get fed up with klopp if he doesn't win something in next couple of seasons.
