    Given how unprofessional we've been so far I'd wager we have further issues to deal with.

    Really struggling to think what it could be hes alluding to. Maybe offered an extension on heavily reduced terms?

    What the F*** is going on at this club! Hopefully just the leak that he is speaking of...
    Deserves a lot more this guy, hes been a legend and a great ambassador of Celtic Football Club.

    Wish him all the best, but his time has come here.

    Would rather we hadn't offer the extension at all and got two RBs in.

    Not like Celtic to try and go for the cheap option, that really benefits none.

    He's good backup until you need to play him in a game where we need to defend pace.

    We’ve been trying to get a RB for the last 2 windows and ended up with sweet * all. Do you really think we’re capable of getting a new first choice and a back up in the space of 4 weeks?

    We’re heading into the Euro qualifiers with a young fella at RB who’d put in a better shift on a building site

    That’s not necessarily true. We got Toljan in.

    On a failed loan. He’s gone and we’ve ended up with sweet * all. Now we’re sitting here in the same position as this time 12 months ago?

    Arguably worse off without Gamboa

    Yeah but there was no reason to expect he’d be a ‘failed loan’ when we recruited him. Either way it’s not true that we got SFA.

    My statement was ‘we’ve ended up with sweet * all.’

    That’s not true?

    Says a lot.

    My inclination is the leak document, he has questioned about it (likely on the back of why offer a contract to him) and their response has probably been cold and heartless to *.


    Isn't the first and won't be the last time this current board have been so * poor in handling players with respect.

    Both Lustig and Izzy rejecting contracts, the * are they actually offered? (not saying I wanted them as staying)

    And once again our beloved club... in search of the cheapest option... adds to the complete * that is known to most other clubs as a transfer window. Here its just a * benny hill/ frank spencer * show.

    I don’t think it’s a concern that we might only have Ralston at the club, currently.

    I’m happy for Lustig to sign on as back up but we can’t, not, sign a new RB this window.

    If we get to August and we’re in the same situation, then I will be concerned.

    I’m sure we have a contingency plan for when the first choice RB leaves, that’ll kick in any minute now.

    After all it was there in black and white in April’s meeting minutes

    If he goes, we can’t, not, sign two RB’s IMO.

    The first qualifier is 4 weeks today, August is too late for having our * together

    First qualifier won’t pose much of a threat, imo.

    Sure, and the second mightn’t either. But the third round and the play off round will. We can’t just turn it on when we like unfortunately

    Contract signed 4 years ago, knew it was running out, player could have signed for another club 6 months ago on a bosman, april scout meeting they acknowledged he wasn't being kept.... Nah I don't see why we would have needed to sort a replacement.
    2 transfer windows and now 12 weeks of this window to go...we will still be trying to fix this come August 31st.

    It probably doesn’t, but if we’re rushing these guys in for the tougher qualifying rounds then we’ve already left it too late imo. You want them bedded in properly.

    I think the most frustrating thing is that we’ve known Lustig’s time as first choice right back has been coming to an end for about 18 months now. We’ve likely also known that we’re not renewing his contract since April. There’s been so much time to get a replacement lined up and to have various backup options if needed.

    I agree. I assume we’re trying to sign someone, just hope it happens soon.
