Celtic Confirm Tonev Loan

Celtic Confirm Tonev Loan

Aleksandar Tonev has this evening completed a season long loan move to Scottish club Celtic.

The 24 year old moves up there having made eight starting appearances for us, with a further 12 from the bench after joining us last summer from Lech Poznan for a reported £2.5million.

We certainly saw that he had an eye for a shot in his season with us, but he wasn't overly impressive unfortunately - although he was lively - and nobody could predict where his shots would go or where he'd try them from.

As part of the loan deal there is already a fee agreed and Celtic can make it permanent next summer if they choose to and he impresses for them, and chances are I think he'll fare a lot better in their shirt.

Good luck Aleks.

A sensible decision all round. I was one of his harshest critics but I don't wish ill will of him. At this stage of his playing career the step up to the premier league was several steps too far. He needs to take this opportunity with both hands and DON'T try to over impress by looking to score a 40yard screamer everytime. Will keep an eye on his progress because nobody can be that bad and I think one day he will show the potential Petrov saw in him.

More chance of scoring goals at villa park from Celtic pitch.

Another one of Lambert's failures. This useless manager was told to reduce the wages bill but it has risen under him with the likes of Tonev etc. I cannot recall any other Villa manager buying so many players only to lend them out as no one wants to buy them.

Lambert needs to go, watch pre season and the team were so bad! Nothing going forward players look totally not interested.....!

Sell lamberts players you will be in equity, fact. Wages are also down, just watch wage bill in next 2 years of account. Amazing though fear how cause you have a slight friendship with Lerner you just keep shooting the messengers. Let's all get behind the manager, and start a revolution against that low life Lerner.

Lambert is the best manager we've got: he is staying, and he has something to prove. We have more chance of being sold if we finish mid-table. Given ALL the circumstances he has had to work with and the resources he has NOT had to work with, I think Lambert has done a good job. No one better would come to us as manager at the moment so get behind him and the team.

Have we got other managers then?

Listen to yourselves harping on how good Lamebrain is. Fact - League position since he arrived is no better than McLeish. Fact.. knocked out of Cup comps by low league teams. Fact.. Heaviest defeat in our Premiership history,need I go on. Go read the fairy tale The Emporer's New Clothes. You see Lambert as all good, come back in 8 months when we are looking at the fixtures iin the Championship.

yes we know lambert aint that good, kevin. but fact is no one will work for lerner. we are a big club with huge expectations, that spends pennies. he is in his 3rd year of contract. and look at our sepnd this summer on transfers lol. some on here just know that lerner is the core problem, until he leaves there really is no point in swapping managers x
