Kazim-Richards signs 2.5 year deal

357

24 hours after a lightweight-looking Celtic were dumped out of the League Cup, Colin Kazim-Richards (29) joined the club on a 2.5 year deal from Feyenoord.  Kazim-Richards is a centre forward who can also play in the wide-striker positions.  No one will call him light-weight, not to his face anyway

The player left Feyenoord under a considerable cloud, after being suspended for the last two weeks of January for threatening a journalist, not his first encounter with controversy.
After spending 2006-07 in the English Premier League with Sheffield United, Kazim-Richards moved to Turkey, where he has spent most of the intervening years, playing for Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Bursaspor.  Feyenoord picked him up 18 months ago and he delivered 12 goals in 26 league starts but he’s been used sparingly this season.

What’s he going to give us?  Well, we can expect a more combative style when he’s on the field, which is perhaps what Ronny Deila is looking for.  No more being pushed around.  For Colin, it’s an opportunity to get his career back on track after a what, from the outside, looks like a series of mistakes.

  1. We’ve just grabbed a £12million 18 year old.

    He’s on a 4.5 year deal ,so he’ll be alright for a TUPE.

    Colin Healy?

     

    ——————————-

     

    That’s the only one I can think of.

     

     

    Do I have a Colin blindspot?

  4. Has anyone watched Colin’s interviews yet ? I have and I think he will be a cracking team mate for the Bhoys I also hope he beats the shit out of a few journalists while he is here, intellectually of course. Good luck big man.

     

     

    Hail Hail.

    No I just want to get an idea what our plan is?

     

     

    I’m deeply suspicious that there is no plan for the club / team.. The only plan I see is one that heats Lawwell’s driveway.

    Celtic, that was a total downer yesterday. Weak of mind and body all over the park.

     

     

    Too many of the current picks fail to absorb the physical and mental challenge of claiming their own space on the football pitch we’re watching, to impose themselves on the opposition. You play for Celtic. Smile. Take your gaze off the grass, speak to your team-mates and show us you won’t accept second best.

     

     

    There isn’t a player in Scotland outside of Celtic Park who should be here. Two trophies to win, starts from Wednesday bhoys.

     

     

    Celtic forever.

    Aiden will hopefully get regular first team football at PT.

     

    When he comes back at the end of the season he will have played against all or most of the first team defences in the premier league. Maybe less likely to get his leg broken while learning his trade than he would in the hoops too!

    I can give PL £100 to heat the driveway pretty pathetic to use it criticise someone.

     

     

    A losing team heats his driveway how?

  9. Tricoloured Ribbon on

    So Sviatchenko,Kazim-Richards and Roberts to start on Wednesday.?

     

    Or will we get the usual bull.?

     

    Too early,need time to settle in,unfit..

     

    Get the three of them straight in.Let’s see what they are made of..

  10. You need 3 or 4 hard men in a,squad. I don’t mean nutters or pretend fighters like elbows – I mean guys who take no crap and demand the same,of more feint hearted team mates.

     

     

    It beats,most teams before they set foot on the park. If you are as fit or fitter, tough or tougher and technically better you win 95% of tge time. At present we are only one of the three.

    Agreed. The sky/ bt/ EPL is a global franchise.

     

    If they can break the American market I think football might change completely for ever.

     

    What’s to stop some mega bucks from buying man utd, moving them to LA and changing their name to the Los Angeles Red Devils.

     

    Fan power?

    I know nothing about this young Roberts guy, never saw him play

     

    Do you have any idea what he is like. Yes he is valued at 12 million. But does that actually mean anything

  12. Well, here we are.. 50 mins to the close of the window, and we’ve made 3, if not Marquee, then pretty high profile signings.. We’ve managed to offload a couple of fringe players out on loan, and I reckon, the Team looks stronger than it did 24 hours ago, (yea, ok, time will tell)..

     

    Happy?? don’t you believe it.. 36 hours after the gross disappointment of hampdump, there are those who are still at it.. still calling PUBLICLY for the Management Team’s heads and that of the Boards.. despite, ‘failing’ to do what weve only ever managed to do on 3 previous occasions, on a coo field of a pitch, with 10 men for 75 minutes, with 5 players on a Yellow card and against a team of hammer throwers.

     

    C’mon ghuys.. get real, don’t let disappointment be confused with bitterness and anger. We suffer enough with the masonic administration and the media. Stop doin it for them.

    It means hes worth 18p did you not read the EPL SPL transfer ratio earlier?

    Up the Tontine Hibs and the Renton Guild..;-)

     

     

    *and the Vale Emmett…..BTW there used tae be a Bonhill Hibs, Neilly McCallum’s 1st team.

     

     

    Because of the dye works in the area there was a huge abundance of Irish women who came tae work there.

     

     

    First tangerine parade, with hassan (he of the Egyptian da and free state mother) leading it in the Vale and an ould Irish woman was leaning out of a top floor windae at the Fountain waving the Gold Harp flag.

    My maw used to call me a cheeky wee article :)

    RobertT,

     

    Kevin Nolan should have been the very man you are on about.Hard tackler,good passer and a tremendous goal scoring record for a midfielder.

     

    I ‘m sick saying it.The answer is on our doorstep in Britain.That’s how we got Hooper.Ledley,Matthews etc.

     

    I said that lad Winnall of Barnsley would get us goals and I stand by it.

  17. Margaret McGill on

    In the light of the shocking revelations about corruption in football, athletics, cricket, tennis, hockey, baseball, tiddlywinks and all other sports, the governing bodies have promised that they will fix everything.

     

     

    Said the head of the Federation Independienti Sportif Honnete International, “We are very disturbed by these allegations and we are determined to stamp these allegations out! The only way to ensure that sporting standards are kept to their current high standard is to put a great deal of money into them.”

     

     

    He continued, “I am personally putting a bet on sport being cleaned up soon at 100-1. Now there’s a deal!”

     

    Lord Coe of Sebastianis added his concern, saying that the performance of all the world’s sports bodies had been unimpressive.

     

     

    “We need to enhance our performance and we need to do whatever it takes!”

  18. Roberts, Just going on the you tube clips and his interviews so far, I would say he is clearly talented from a fitness and technique perspective but the only way he will become a wise guy on and off the pitch is repetition and time, he needs games and time, if that happens then maybe he could be a wee bit special, who knows for sure.

     

     

    Hail Hail.

    Huddle

     

    So man city paid 12 million for him?

     

    Who did they buy him from. He is 18, has he played any games, I suppose I could Google him but can’t be bothered.

     

    Will ronny pick him

    It was and is a metaphor of how far our CEO is adrift from the values of our club. Genuinely I believe Lawwells plan begins and ends with his own betterment. £20k a week tells me he’s implemented that plan better than the one that sees the team develop as it should.

     

     

    Only my opinion. You are entitled to yours too. As for the £100 you are willing to give him. Keep it I doubt he’d need it as much as you. He probably wipes his @rse with them given he’s gets 200 of them a week and has done for some considerable amount of years.

  21. THE HUDDLE

     

    I just logged on again and I noticed your comment on my post. You suggested that everything I said was incorrect. Let me clarify:

     

     

    1. Everyone around me agreed that it was an accidental trip but a trip non the less and therefore a straight red.

     

    2. Ross County could have been 3 down in the first ten minutes but were coming back into the game when the penalty was given – fact.

     

    3. Staurt Armstrong is being played out of position, at least that is what he himself said – fact.

     

    4. SA confidence must be affected when he hears the abuse that he was subjected to yesterday although I could be wrong.

     

    5. IMHO Richards is a very questionable signing, although I would love to be proved wrong.
