Celtic enhance Scotland's penny pinching reputation by trying to pull a fast one and grab Connell for loose change from Bolton

https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/sport/17736317.celtic-target-connell-told-he-cannot-tear-up-contract-at-bolton/

Celtic have signed him and bolton have thanked celtic for paying considerably more than they needed to. You may want to take your comment back.

Why pay more than what was required ? Was this to prevent any legal challenges from Bolton on the deal ?

This fellow is supposed to be a great prospect. Ireland will be trying to get him capped asap as well

Why should I? The first offer was derisory regardless. Obviously Celtic had second thoughts about that offer and possibly considering public relations as well as Bolton's plight, paid over the odds.

If anyone thinks we paid extra than we thought we had to, they must never have heard of Peter Lawell.

You think what you want but it is an accepted fact that Celtic paid over what they were required to, according to terms of football law.
It was calculated Celtic only had to pay 250k, but paid  out an extra 100k, matching the same amount an English club would have to pay.

 In similar circumstances, Celtic paid no more than their calculation of the obligatory development fee for Dembele from Fulham, that's fair enough as Fulham have enough wealth.
Whoever managed this coup from behind the scenes at Celtic did a very good job.

A good start this evening on the long road journey to the CL elite.I  would've thought a Balkan league champions such as Sarajevo would have something more about them, perhaps they were almost as as rusty as Celtic were. Some tired legs in the last 1/4, that was one heavy pitch.

Potentially our trickiest first round game in Europe for a while. Three good goals.

I guess UEFA won't be in a rush to fine the Sarajevo fans for displaying a (34th anniversary) banner behind the goal

They'll take it but Arsenal are getting a steal.

He plays in the SPL!


Your point is?

I think his point is the SPL is a very minor league in Europe and thus being a decent player in the SPL doesn’t mean you can cut it at Premier League level and that £20m odd is around Tierney’s level...

Just a guess but I’m sure michaelg will clarify!
