    Personally, I read it as the board sending a message that we have been backing the manager.

    I don’t think even they’re that daft, think most signings get announced as ‘make second signing of the season’ ‘Celtic make 4th signing of the summer’ etc etc

    This just happens to be the 10th

    I don't think that's true mate as I haven't seen it with any of our other signings this window.

    I’ve seen it all day in headlines for other clubs to be fair. I just don’t think it matters. It’s a weird thing for us to get annoyed over.

    Like I say, perhaps ny cynicism is getting better of me and I read it differently.

    But the board are certainly that daft and they've every right to be that daft because they clearly think fans are even more daft than them.

    If the guy can score 26 in 30 games he must have something about him, i think Ange will get the best out of him. :50:

    Aye, that’s the obvious interpretation. Some folk just don’t want to see it that way, which is partly understandable as we’re Celtic fans and don’t want to diss our own club.

    On the other hand, it’s just the kind of passivity the board totally rely on.

    Defend the club - the real club: the fans, the movement - to the end; but don’t let the PLC away with anything, I say.

    Not in the bigger picture, it’s not.

    As we’ve seen before, it can go from ‘this is our 10th signing’ today to ‘the fans are entitled’ tomorrow.

    It all comes from the same mindset: justifying their own (lack of) contribution, with zero regard for our real expectations.

    Mate it’s the 10th signing of the window, that’s all it is.

    That’s all it is when you or I say it.

    When it appears as part of a media announcement from the club, they choose their words carefully with PR principles front and foremost. You can count on it being more than a basic statement of fact.

    Well if that’s the case the clearly * up cos everycunts taken it as ‘only 10 we need much more’

    Looks a simple statement I’ve seen loads today when it comes to other clubs signing players, always seem to mention how many players have been signed.

    I'm assuming the plan is to have him as backup to Kyogo with Jota coming in?
