Someone's at it
Full stop and everything
Seriously, is he officially employed by us? Hard to find any information on what he does. Thought he was an agent at one point.
It was mentioned either last season or Brendan’s first that Lubo would be a scout for the club. Can’t seem to find anything anywhere now though.
I was the opinion that lubo was on and off scouting for celtic for years sure agathe has been too

You could be right *.
Sutton knows * all about him, the same as the rest of us.
This * signed yet?
As far as I understand it, it’s kind of an indirect scout for us.
Scout consultancy basically
By that train of thought we would never have signed Henrik. Just saying
Celtic are putting the finishing touches to making Vakoun Issouf Bayo their third signing of the January window.
The Hoops made a £2million take-it-or-leave-it bid to Slovak side Dunajská Streda for the Ivorian striker over the weekend and Record Sport Online understands that is enough to win the race for the 21-year-old with Rapid Vienna and Parma also interested.
Bayo’s move is now just waiting to be rubber-stamped ahead of the striker officially being unveiled as a Celtic player.
While deals are often held up by the wait for international clearance and work permits at this stage, Bayo’s announcement could also be delayed by logistical reasons as the club look to announce the deal through their own channels.
20% sell-on clause seems like quite a concession to make to save £300,000.
Unless their previous asking fee also had that clause attached.
Some good headers there, that 1st goal was * though(greedy/should have passed and pish shot)
That's the forward and wide areas sorted, temporarily at least. Right full and centre half still needed. Good first week of the window.
CELTIC are delighted to announce the signing of Vakoun Issouf Bayo, who has joined the club on a four-year deal from Slovakian side, Dunajská Streda. The deal is subject to a work permit and a medical.
The 21-year-old Ivory Coast forward joined Dunajská Streda in March last year, having previously spent two years playing in Tunisia.
And the highly-rated striker has been in exceptional form since moving to Slovakia, scoring 18 goals in 23 games this season, as well as seven assists, helping his team into second place in the top division.
Now, Vakoun will be targeting goals in the green and white Hoops. Everyone at the club welcomes him to Celtic and wishes him every success here.
* me in the space of two hours it went from hoping to be signed this month to hoping to be signed this week to Celtic are delighted to announce the signature......
