The CHAMPIONSSSSSSSS!!!! Love the graphic and the work that goes into them man! Can't wait to see how you get on!
Very difficult draw for you, however crazy things have happened in this competition in the past, perhaps you can do the unthinkable and beat those French so and so's ;)
Incredible achievement to reach the Last 16! You probably got put up against one of the top 4 or 5 sides in Europe in the form of PSG, which is unlucky. Hopefully you can give them a good run for their money, and even potentially cause an upset and progress further in the competition!
mgriffin2012 Thank you, that is one reason why at times I don't update much, the graphics take a while to create

ScottT Looks like I need to call up the great Kevin Gauthier and have him spy for me

Justice I want Dembele to show how stupid they were for getting rid of him

Celtic look to get an early start in the summer window as search of a goalkeeper begins

18 DEC 2016

With the average age of 32 Celtic's goalkeeping squad is starting to age and it looks as if the club is ready to start a search for the next player to possibly lead between the sticks.

In recent times manager Brendan Rodgers has hinted that one of his top priorities is to find a goalkeeper for the future.

Despite the fact Craig Gordon is having his best year to date with, 17 clean sheets his age is starting to creep up and with Celtic's ambition of a second Champions League title they need to find someone more suitable for that role. Dorus de Vries and Logan Bailiey have had limited action this season.

A source from inside the club has told us that four keepers are on the Parkhead Radar for a purchase in the next few weeks but a move will not happen until the Summer of 2017. Each of the four are talented individuals and would be an asset for the Bhoys.

The first is Hertha Berlin's Thomas Kraft. He has made a total of 9 appearances this season and has limited time in the last few seasons. His upside is that he has had Champions League experience and has played at a high level with FC Bayern. Likelihood of joining: Probable

Following Kraft is Serbian Predrag Rajkovic of Maccabi Tel-Aviv. The 21 year old is seen as one of the top goalkeeping prospects in Europe and has several teams looking at him. This season he has made 21 appearances with his club. With several Premier League and Bundesliga clubs in the hunt it will take Celtic a lot to get him to join and I doubt Brendan Rodgers is willing to break the bank on an unproven wonderkid. Likelihood of joining: Probable

Over the past few weeks, goalkeeping coach Stevie Woods, has been singing the praises of Italian International Mattia Perin of Genoa. Perin is seen as a quality keeper who could easily dominate the Scottish Premiership. The thing is that he has no interest in joining Celtic at this time and it is rumored that Celtic would have to pay upwards of £40M for him. Likelihood of joining: No Chance

Finally is Blackburn's Jason Steele. This is the one player who makes the most sense in terms of a move.The 26 year old would be a useful signing and fit many holes including a possible Brexit Exit scenario as he is English. Another positive is that Steele will be a relatively inexpensive transfer less than a million pounds. Likelihood of joining: Excellent

Other goalkeepers on Celtics radar include; Adrian Semper, Daniel Bentley, William Yarbrough and Ted Smith. Stay tuned for updates on this and other Celtic transfer news.
Steele would bring some good experience and a nice mix with (relative) youth, but if Celtic can land Rajkovic then that might be the better long-term move!
Probably correct on the Perin chances, unfortunately. Of the other three mentioned, Rajkovic would certainly be the best fit for the club!
Jason Steele is the man coming in I reckon. Not a bad keeper to be fair and he would be a good option for you.
I wonder where i've seen talk of this before :P a good selection of goalkeepers, all four of which would improve your options but Steele would most likely be the safest and best bet to take!
InfraRed Steele and Rajokvic are my top two targets

Justice I feel that is a bit too high for Perin as he is decent but not the best. My issue with Rajokvic is they are wanting way too much than what I want to spend

ScottT Always been a go to signing for me lol

mgriffin2012 Just wait and see lol. I do want Steele though
Saidy Janko: Barnsley set to sign winger from Celtic on a permanent deal

24 December 2016| Football

Janko in action with the Reds this season

Championship club Barnsley have signed Celtic winger Saidy Janko for a £1.3M fee on a two-year deal.

The out of favor winger has had a pretty good season so far on loan with Championship side Barnsley, making twenty-two appearances and scoring two goals in the process.

Janko originally arrived at Celtic Park last season during the Ronny Deila era only making ten appearances. Since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers he was one of the several players who were cast aside this season and sent on loan.

This transfer will officially take place in a few days giving the Scottish Champions some extra money in the bank that could be used to sign a few key players for next season, as Brendan Rodgers said that there is no plan to buy anyone new in the upcoming window that would make an impact this season.

On word of his loan becoming permanent Janko said, "It is nice to be able to stay here and I am enjoying Barnsley more than at Celtic, I wish them all the best but personally for me it was not a good fit, Barnsley has been a great club so far and I am excited to stay here for the next few years."

Money coming in for an unwanted player, not too much to complain about. Now to reinvest that money in to the first team!
Good business from both sides, you can use that money to go towards your new keeper.
Justice I was shocked he went for that much to be honest, he is not really that good.

ScottT Yes it should help a lot

Scott Brown making a play for the ball during a free kick

Tom Rogic handed Celtic their first win at Ibrox in almost six years as Brendan Rodgers' men claimed a 2-0 triumph over Rangers.

An error from Rangers' Danny Wilson allowed Moussa Dembele to score his fourth goal in two games against Rangers.

Australian Midfielder Tom Rogic continued having a good season as he would score what would be the final goal for Celtic in 2016.

Celtic have not conceded in six league games thanks to stellar play from Craig Gordon. The defending champions are currently are on top with 55 points fourteen in front of second place Hearts.

Rangers could not compete

For Pedro Caixinha's side it was the same thing from before, they try to out play Celtic but it backfires. This time it was in front of their home crowd who are not pleased that the Portuguese Manager has been out scored by Celtic 7-1 this season.

Their midfield were the most overworked group on the pitch this day as Celtic play the counter all match long. A poor performance by Jordan Rossiter and an injury picked up by Emerson Hyndman did not help.

Having struggled to get a telling delivery at set-pieces, Rangers may have gone tied the game just before Celtic's second as Danny Wilson met Tavernier's corner, Gordon making the save.

Stuart Armstrong had a very productive day as a substitute

Celtic duo to the fore again

Summer signing Dembele and Academy Graduate Kieran Tierney had run the Rangers defence ragged in September's 5-1 win at Celtic Park, and the duo's link-up play was again the catalyst as the visitors continued showing why they are the best partnership in Scotland.

Tierney's set-piece was controlled and rattled into the top-right corner by Celtic's top scorer Dembele - a fourth goal against Rangers for the Frenchman this season.

And he should have taken that tally to five after Callum McGregor squared the ball to the striker early in the second period, a miskick allowing Wes Foderingham to save.
Dembele could have added to his first-half strike

Foderingham came to Rangers' rescue when Patrick Roberts was played in on goal by Mikael Lustig but Rogic would ensure a happy end to 2016 for his team, applying the finish to Lustig's piercing ball across the face of goal.

McGregor, Sinclair and substitute Stuart Armstrong forced further saves from Foderingham as Rangers continued to struggle in defence.

Craig Gordon saves the day again

It has been a season to remember for the 34 year old who had another clean sheet today, bringing his SPFL total to 14. He was everywhere Rangers were and could not be defeated. Several key saves had helped his team secure the shutout.

New Year beckons

The Scottish Premiership enters its winter break for the early part of January and Celtic can extend their advantage at the top to 30 points if they win their game in hand against St Johnstone near the end of next month.

The league leaders, who have won 17 Premiership matches in a row and have only dropped four points all season, are targeting a sixth straight top-flight title win and a first under manager Brendan Rodgers.

For Rangers, they suffer their first competitive home defeat since September 2015 and face a battle to hold on to third place with Aberdeen, who are two points behind them.
