    It's underwhelming, but I don't know why. He's a good keeper.

    If Hart is inured, who do you want playing in goals - Barkas, Bain or Ben?

    No question he's a step up as no.2, and on a free it's great business. Everything about it screams proper planning and smart business, somehow I just can't get excited about it :56:

    I think it's because we're used to first choice players being brought in. In all probability, Seigrist is going to be back up and will play against poor opposition in the cups or when Hart picks up an injury.

    He’s not our one and only signing on deadline day to replace Dorus De Vries ffs. He’s another cog in the wheel. Long term term replacement for Hart and a keeper who will ensure Hart is always looking over his shoulder.

    I could get used to these early signings. Months before a competitive game.

    Listen I'm not hanging the board out to dry or anything just being honest, it doesn't really get me excited. He's an improvement, but I don't see him as a long-term replacement for Hart. For me he's coming in straight up as a number 2, which is fine.

    Aye, that's it basically. All for signings like this but they don't get the juices flowing. We seem to be scarily prepared this time around with the big ride in charge though so it doesn't matter because I know we've got an exciting first team signing on the horizon.

    He impressed the * out of me against us last season. Very good move.

    It's underwhelming because while he is a decent enough keeper he hasn't really shown he can play the way we would need him to if he's called upon.

    But as it's Ange's style of play he must think he is capable of learning to play that way and, let's face it, that's not exactly Hart's strong point either and he's done ok. I think I've just about managed to convince myself he'll be a good signing for us.

    Welcome to Celtic Park.

    Very happy with this signing. A few more and we'll be ready to spank the * down the road. 2 of 10 for sure.

    Good signing and smart business. If Hart remains first choice as expected, we've still managed to improve our goalkeeping options on a free transfer, which can't be a bad thing.

    Welcome Ben.

    Welcome to Celtic!

    My only concern is 4yrs is a long contract for a backup though.

    Aye apart fae Forster, hart, never get to excited about a new goalie especially as back up Guy was main reason Huns dropped 5 points from 6 at tannadice, apart from 3-0 game at tannadice he was there best player in 2 draws against them and last minute win at Celtic pk, all a can really go on but definitely a massive step up from what we had/have as back up
