    He would give the Villareal keeper a run for his money

    His distribution was spot on in the game he did play. Half a sweeper keeper.

    As long as we can stop people taking shots at him he’ll be fine.

    Felt myself being happy for him yesterday watching him smiling and signing in the changing room. He's been a disaster of a signing but he's just a guy trying to be a success in his life. Hope he goes and gets things back on track somewhere, same goes for Ajeti.

    Think am getting auld :giggle1:

    I'd be singing and smiling if I was picking up a heavy wage packet for doing absolutely * all and yes, you must be getting auld ya sentimental auld *. Seriously though, we need to get both him and Ajeti of our wage books as they contribute as much to our club as I do to the local barber shop

    Outcast Vasilis Barkas will have his nightmare spell at Celtic brought and end this summer, according to a report.

    The 28-year-old has failed to hold down a regular spot in the Parkhead starting line-up after following a £5 million move from AEK Athens in the summer of 2020


    Under Ange Postecoglou the stopper has barely featured and slipped down the pecking order to third choice at Celtic Park with Joe Hart and Scott Bain holding the top two positions.

    Time appears to be up at Parkhead as reports in Greece claims the club are willing to cut their losses this summer.

    Barkas is contract until 2026 and Sportdogstate that the club are weighing up "ripping up" his contract to offload his salary.


    AEK are reportedly monitoring the situation as they look to resign the goalkeeper who left them two years ago.



    PAOK are also credited with an interest with Celtic ready "to get rid of the contract" before the new Scottish Premiership campaign.


    In January, Celtic attempted to offload the stopper on loan to Swedish side IFK as well as Sheffield United.

    However, Barkas' wage demands proved to be the stumbling block.

    Makes sense we not got to pay AEK £800k if he starts the season with us making the CL

    The amount of money he cost us, and continues to cost us through his disgraceful wages, is absolutely criminal.

    Players like him, Ajeti and Boli just sum Lennon and his last season up for me. But whoever sanctioned these guys has no place at this club. Hopefully they're already long gone.

    'Wage demands'. Need to hand it to the boy, he's done well.

    We’ve heard this before.


    Until he’s actually away we are stuck with him.

    Will go down as our worst ever signing, 100%.

    There’s no one close.

    £5 million well spent. When £5 mill bought you a quality player, guaranteed.
