After FIFA banned a referee for falsely giving a penalty, 5000 Scottish referees are scared they may be banned also.

Big dimbele might get the ban he rightfully deserves.

21 Mar 2017 11:02:16
Haha! Ban the big man for the rest of the season and we'll still win the treble lol! And it's laughable when your mob has a striker with the same number of cards as he's got. You don't half brighten up a rotten day.

21 Mar 2017 11:21:12
Banned for what cee or is it just wishful thinking. mind the gap HH.

21 Mar 2017 12:17:32
Cee your club should of got ban they deserve #pay your taxes like everyone else.

21 Mar 2017 12:33:44
Fact is, Cee is scared of Dembele destroying his tribute act of a team again!
Maybe he needs to look closer to home at his beloved cheats and divers.

21 Mar 2017 15:20:30
@coloradobhoy - hardly scared when Dembele is firing more blanks than a castrated bull!
It's Celtic fans who have the FEAR:-
For Ever Always Rangers!

21 Mar 2017 16:22:12
For Ever Always Republicans?! Could be right UJ.

21 Mar 2017 18:14:15
@union sack did Dembele nit rip yous apart in 5-1. Oh forgot yous have got kenny zimmerframe up front. Loves your club that much that he jumped at chance to pull on the green and white hoops.

21 Mar 2017 19:33:30
Uj more blanks than waggy or wee gurner last a looked the big mans on 33 gials prob more than wee gurner and jenny have put together mind the gap.

21 Mar 2017 20:49:41
@dn3 - when you bring up a game from September 2016 as his highlight of the season then you confirm how poor he is currently playing.
As for KM he always seems to return to his first love. Celtic were just a naughty bit on the side!

21 Mar 2017 21:28:12
Union jack, you take clutching at straws to new levels.
I'll happily settle for Dembele going a whole 2 games without a goal, his 33 goals up till then have done more than enough damage to be going on with.
I think you should be more concerned about the dross at your own club, you haven't got one single player that I would want for our team, you would even struggle to get any of them into our second team.

21 Mar 2017 22:13:31
@union sack no your right. A hat trick against the newest club in scotland doesn't really count. Scoring against top teams in europe (something your club has never done) like Man City and Borussia Monchengladbach just shows the class Dembele has.

33 points ahead of yous. Treble is in bag. Here we go at least 15 in a row.

21 Mar 2017 22:47:31
Dn i still can't see them.

22 Mar 2017 10:02:49
Union Jack, on a Celtic site saying forever and always rangers! 😂😂 brilliant! And bringing up a game from 2016 and how poor he's currently playing!

I'm sure the big man has scored 12 goals in the last 5 weeks! lol. if that's poor I'd love to know what miller, waghorn, garner and dodoo combined total is in the same period! Come union enlighten us! 🙊😜😜.

22 Mar 2017 10:07:36
im kinda glad we drew our last game tbh, as honking as we were i can't see a repeat of that performance again.

22 Mar 2017 15:31:47
@lh96 - 9 goals combined in the ' worst Rangers team ever '
Doesn't get away from the fact Dembele couldn't hit Leigh Griffiths forehead with a banjo at this very moment. How's his call up to the French squad going to add another couple of zeros to his Dembele Dollar value?

22 Mar 2017 15:41:31
33 goals is firing blanks? aye right mate keep taking the tablets, next you will be saying larsson only got a couple in his time here!

22 Mar 2017 16:18:32
now they're the worse rangers team of all time! Well since you started up 5 years ago anyway! Lol. how many goals combined has your 4 strikers scored in the last 5 weeks again, im sure you said 9 🙊😂.

dembele has scored more in one half than kenny RRM miller has managed this year! That must make miller one of the worse rangers players of all time eh? Lol. and how's his France call up coming!

He's only got strikers from arsenal athletico Madrid borussia Dortmund and Man Utd in front him, wee diddy teams them aren't they! lol. many of your whole 'strike force' are away on international duty this week then? 🙈😂.

22 Mar 2017 19:49:49
@jb67 - never scored as many as Boyd!

22 Mar 2017 19:50:12
@lh86 - I was being sarcastic regarding 'worst' team - I had to sit through the Super Ally years.

P.S. Giroud? £9.6 million and the £50 million Dembele Dollar Man can't oust that donkey from the national side!

22 Mar 2017 19:35:10
@union jack, or 9 goals scored combined against "new tenants at ibrokes who actually pay tax".

22 Mar 2017 20:59:44
How a sevco fan can call any striker from another team a donkey when they made a song up about one who had more bookings than goals at that time is the funniest thing I've heard all year!

And talking of strikers who are donkeys, I noticed you never answered about how many of your strikers are on international duty this week? your a good one for making statements then passing it off as sarcasm.

The bottom line is you would do anything to have a striker like moussa in your team, who is worth more than your whole club! And it troubles you and your fellow tribute act followers that we snapped up this bhoy for less than half of what you payed for joey garner! lol, who by the way I heard zidane say would have a long and successful international career ahead of him!

No wait a minute that was big moussa he was speaking about! But hey what does zidane know about being a player eh 😜😂.

22 Mar 2017 22:41:35
@lh96 - he's worth more than the current Rangers squad? And yet he had to resort to cheating in his last couple of games to try and win penalties as he has went right of the boil.

P.S. there is a big difference being a player than actually spotting one / nurturing / developing talent.

P.P.S. it doesn't trouble me, I consider it a good bit of business to get a player at that price considering Spurs had offered £5-6 million for him 6 months earlier.

23 Mar 2017 09:42:33
Uj what's with the obsession with moussa nearly every modern day striker goes down easily my god your mob should know that. but because your struggling to find fault with his play you use diving to slag the bhoy HH.

23 Mar 2017 09:34:02
i knew you were going to say that about boyd, he's played about 13 more years in scotland than henrik did.

23 Mar 2017 09:49:48
See there you go again with right off the boil! When if you look at the last 5 weeks he's scored 12 goals and is part of a team who are still unbeaten this season! And I never said worth more than your current squad I said worth more than your whole club! Lol.

And P.S I think I'll take zidane's opinion on a player than a sevco fan's any day of the week!

23 Mar 2017 10:26:09
242 goals in 7 seasons uj played with the biggest and best team in scotland not a financially doped one. Won the CL with Barcelona and had man u begging him to stay longer please don't use boyds name in the same sentence as king Henrik HH.

20 Mar 2017 15:33:33
Afternoon Ed,

JimTim and JB67 were looking for a "report card" on the lad Riley McGree mate

Family there say he is "handy" but nowhere near the level Rogic is said he started as a 10 moved to the wing and now playing as a holding and that is where he is earning plaudits really surprised at his inclusion in the Oz squad and played nowhere near enough football to merit a move to Celtic

Would benefit from at least another season in Oz. Hope that helps bhoys (y)

Agree2 Disagree3

20 Mar 2017 15:56:25
Thanks Jamie 👍. I suspected he would be one to watch. Somewhat ignorantly, but confidently, I knew he wasn't going to be a player for now.

20 Mar 2017 14:49:27
Afternoon lads, which would you prefer? Sticking with same team after we win the league to try and go season unbeaten or play players that haven't been playing or youngsters to see if they have it for next season?

Agree0 Disagree2

20 Mar 2017 15:23:51
Give youngsters a chance. When else would we get a better opportunity. Rotate the squad so that the 'first team' are geared up for cup ties, but use youth to fill in the gaps.

20 Mar 2017 15:45:58
It's a difficult one that as the players who have put us in this position will want to see it out. I'd be happy with that but would love to see some of our youngsters get a good 25-30 mins end of each game. Once the league is won and the pressure isn't as intense it will be a good environment for them to play in.

20 Mar 2017 17:59:14
I think that youngsters should only get a place in the first team if they are good enough.
After the split we will have away matches at Ibrox and Pittodrie, I wouldn't want to give any of those sides a cause for optimism before next season.

20 Mar 2017 18:29:21
I would give izzy, ralston, calvin miller, Henderson, GMS, eboue, aitchinson all a run out once the league is wrapped up but wouldn't drop to many at the same time maybe easev 3 or 4 in at a time.

20 Mar 2017 18:39:22
I agree. Great to go unbeaten but if we are ever going to develope young plsyers we need to put them on the pitch. Best for the club but somehow i dint think we will see that.

20 Mar 2017 18:48:20
Ddv Gamboa boyata simunovic izzy bitton kouassi McGregor Roberts griff gms team after we wrap up the league apart from ipox players need a break early clq keep employees fresh hh.

20 Mar 2017 19:50:07
Maybe Toure in for simunovic.

20 Mar 2017 21:58:53
Could not give a flying feck about going unbeaten.
Get the youth in and get them game time.
Building for the future is more important to me.

20 Mar 2017 22:12:04
Realistically we should be able to do both. It would be daft to change almost a whole team but putting in 3, 4 even 5 of the fringe players would still give us a strong XI on the park who should be able to take at least a draw from any team domestically.

20 Mar 2017 22:50:23
Break in youngsters but limited numbers. Have to remember that a lot of fans want to see the real team on the park and that means established names (they pay the money)

21 Mar 2017 10:36:47
Ddv Gamboa boyata Toure izzy bitton kouassi McGregor Roberts griff gms think that's a team that could stay unbeaten under brendan plus I think it's established give or take maybe 1 or 2.

21 Mar 2017 22:15:36
Cant see GMS playing again unless in an emergency.

20 Mar 2017 05:35:32
It's hard to be too critical of the players given the season were having but some players performance's have been way off the boil the past few weeks especially the two main front players dembele and Sinclair. Both have been outstanding this season but maybe a wee rest or rotation is needed. maybe this international break will do them both good but I'd like to see wee Griffith's getting more game time. I know he's been criticized by Rodgers and he's been injured but this guy scored a barrell load of goals last season and for me deserves more game time. unless of course his attitude beging the scenes isn't good but reports recently suggest he's taken the criticism on the chin and in a positive way.

Agree2 Disagree2

20 Mar 2017 08:17:27
Agree about griff garry def deserves mire time moussa last few games has looked jaded as has sinclair but a think we're missing that wee bit of creativity in the last third and hopefully rogic stays fit till the enf of tbe season.

20 Mar 2017 09:39:02
Said as much in the live-chat yesterday. They all have had exceptional seasons with guys like Lustig, Brown, Tierney and Armstrong consistently solid, while Forrest and Gordon have gone up a notch or two in many of the games with Simunovic and Boyata showing great potential.
Sinclair and Dembele have put us where we are today with their goals and creativity where Rogic and Roberts have similarly their part when they have been available.
The break comes at a good time to rest and recharge - apart from maybe those involved at international level?

20 Mar 2017 10:05:03
Mallythetally, definitely agree with lack of creativity in the last third. Hopefully rogic will be back after the international break, definitely brings more to the team with him in it. As for Griffith's, like i said just think if he's fully fit then there needs to be game time made available to him, especially when the likes of Sinclair and dembele look jaded in games.

20 Mar 2017 10:57:28
And the thing is griff will be really fresh and hungry so no brainer for me.

20 Mar 2017 12:24:30
What about this team for the semi.


Sviatchencko Boyata Simunovic

Forrest Brown Armstrong Tierney

Roberts Dembele/ Griffiths Sinclair

What's your thoughts guys?

20 Mar 2017 12:49:05
Can't see Rodgers playing without a recognised right back wether it's lustig or gamboa. Hopefully rogic will be back for it and going on how things have gone this season i think dembele and Sinclair will play with Griffith's on the bench again. personally I'd play Roberts before Forrest, i know Roberts will likely be going back to man city but at this moment he's still a Celtic player and has been for the last year and a half. forrest has had a great season compared to previous seasons but i must admit i prefer wee Roberts on the wing.

20 Mar 2017 13:33:06
This would be my 11 if Rogic is available.


Lustig Boyata Simunovic Tierney

Roberts Brown Rogic Armstrong Sinclair


20 Mar 2017 14:45:21
That would do for me stan.

21 Mar 2017 18:17:13
Sviatchenko is far too much of a liability. Has no control over back post and there seems to be distinct lack of communication with Lustig.

19 Mar 2017 19:50:01
I see Eboue getting a little stick today; all justified. I beleive he will take time to settle and we won't see him start a game until next season. I was disappointed Hill was not given a place on the bench ahead of Eboue after outperforming him in the development side. How can we expect our own youngsters to believe in themselves if players who are bought in are first choice even if you play better.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Mar 2017 21:25:09
Jonace, I suppose when you spend £2m on a player there is a pressure to show that the money hasn't been wasted.
There is a tendency in football where clubs would rather pay money for players rather than go with their own youngsters. Man Utd sold Pogba for around £5m, then spent £89m to buy him back. Chelsea sold Lukaku to Everton for I think it was £17m, and now a couple of years later want to spend £50m to bring him back.
It's as if clubs can only see how good a player is when they play for someone else.

{Ed007's Note - Pogba left Utd on a free after refusing to use one of Fergie's cronies as his agent and the compensation was around £800,000 which also had to be shared with Le Havre where Utd signed him from (a move FIFA investigated) and a couple of other small French clubs.}

20 Mar 2017 09:45:24
There was some expectation and anticipation, as the player came with a good reputation and decent price tag.
However unlike other 'foreign imports' he does seem to be taking a lot longer to get up to speed and looks pretty raw and will probably take a while to develop?

19 Mar 2017 15:24:12
Another 3 points closer to the title probably sums up that game. It's at the point where things tend to become scrappy because we're so close to getting the league over the line. We did enough to win but the international break is coming at a nice time for a few of the players who have looked a little bit tired recently. Hopefully they'll come back ready for one last push for the treble. HH.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Mar 2017 18:02:03
Pleased with the result, but too many below par performances, particularly in attack. I'm not sure if it's tiredness as we did seem to be able to move about. Far too many heavy touches, mishit passes, people running into eachother and tripping over the ball. Poor Eboue even fell off the bench lol. So much of our good attacking play has gone through Sinclair who looks like he is in a wee dip right now. Forrest did well for the second, bit offered little else. We're missing Rogic as a CAM, just somebody in there orchestrating things. As a result Dembele looks like a frustrated player. Winning whilst playing poorly is always good though. I think you're right about the scrappiness possibly being from the title being so close though.

19 Mar 2017 19:23:29
Unable to win the league against Sevco, we have the next best thing. Winning the league at the Edinburgh huns. Got this funny feeling though that we will win the league on the Friday when Aberdeen lose to Dundee. After that, never mind the unbeaten run, BR should tinker with squad to get the best possible team ready for the Semi Final. MTH!

19 Mar 2017 19:31:04
Kev agree with you and jim tim but confess to being worried for a few weeks now. Sinclair has been great and in my opinion as good a player if not a better one than Dembele? He has looked poor for 3/ 4 weeks. don't know if he has got bored or its just a drop in form but when he does not play then Celtic don't play. Sounds harsh but i would not have played him today after Rangers performance. Something feels not right. Need to restore the fluid play we produced earlier in the season and do it quick.

19 Mar 2017 21:36:34
Sinclair be back to he's best soon aye it's frustrating because we know the players better than what they've been giving us last few weeks no just Sinclair but it was always bound to hit a spell when we had to win ugly, iam a massive fan of young KT and he's only going to get better but I feel he's final ball in last 2 games been poor yet I hate picking that out because he's only human, we've missed big Rogic at times guy takes a lot a pressure off Dembele when he plays whrn he comes back be good to see, as I said in a previous post think breaks came at right time because a lot a players maybe going through the motions a bit but get this title wrapped up and back them like we've done all season to get this treble. ☘☘☘.

19 Mar 2017 21:49:07
Is it a coincidence that Sinclair's dip in form has happened around the time his Mrs has started working again? I'm not sure if she moved up here with him and moved back down for work?

19 Mar 2017 15:13:14
Would like Brendan to come out now and lament some of the challenges as it's getting beyond a joke. O'Dea should have been red carded for the rugby tackle on Sinclair but that was one of many. Thought KT was off the pace which is so unlike him but thought Kouassi was awful when he came on but still early days for him. Best men I felt were Armstrong and Boyata. One more win and we are champs without a defeat which is incredible although I'm certain we will lose before the seasons out HH.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Mar 2017 15:49:14
Definitely thought Kouassi looked out of place on a day where there was few stand-out performances. Time enough tho.

19 Mar 2017 16:13:40
Boyata did well but suspect at there goal although it was some strike.

19 Mar 2017 17:12:25
I fear eboue is going to be another 1 of these players who just doesn't cut it 1 of a long line over the years but time will tell I suppose! Think we should give dembele a break for game or 2 and give Griffiths a wee run!

19 Mar 2017 17:44:52
Give the guy a chance neldo.

19 Mar 2017 19:04:54
Think the breaks came at the right time tbh think a lot of a players going through the motions a wee bit but 1 game away from being champions and hopefully just 2 games away from the treble, Bhoy Kouassi been here 5 minutes let's give him a bit a time guys, been a fantastic season so far and hopefully will get better. ☘☘☘.

19 Mar 2017 19:17:39
The boy eboue hasn't even had chance yet neldo yet you've got him shipped out already. we've had it good this season with our performances, because we hit a bit of a dip people on there back. Cut them some slack there not robots.

19 Mar 2017 20:10:07
Somebody said similar about Dembelle after his first game or two.

19 Mar 2017 20:40:46
Van dijk looked hopeless his first few games lads let them adapt and feel they're way into the team and style Scottish footballs a hunner miles per hour.

19 Mar 2017 20:53:12
the boy will need to get up to the speed of frantic scottish football, after the league is won he will probably get a run of games from the start to give him experience of the league, and probably the more promising youngsters will get a run out too, the hard work is done in the league now, hopefully the sharpness will return for the semi then the final.

20 Mar 2017 08:22:58
Its tough coming off the bench into a game going at 100 miles an hour with dundee kicking everything that moves culture shock for the bhoy . give him time he's been here 5 mins.

19 Mar 2017 14:49:01
Brdndan a class act congratulating the boy on his strike well done sir.

Agree3 Disagree2

19 Mar 2017 15:19:51
He does it quite often, talks to players about things they did during the game that impressed him. Some may find it condescending but I don't think that's the intention.

19 Mar 2017 14:35:58
Kicked off the park again but 3 points none the less at times the first half was like watching the rugby.

Agree4 Disagree3

19 Mar 2017 13:03:15
MR Maddon where you watching the everton v hull match 1footed lung = red card what does 2footed lung=? .

Agree3 Disagree0

19 Mar 2017 15:05:21
He thinks one foot cancels oot the other, lol.

19 Mar 2017 16:29:11
Maybe he should have watched the Rangers game yesterday and seen that an elbow to the face = yellow card.
