Jozo's ban extended for extra game, unbelievable never even thought it was a red.

...Stevie

Is that bassa dallas still snooping around.


2.) 28 Jul 2018 14:20:00
It was a lazy, stupid mistimed challange. I don't believe he was even thinking when he went in for it. Raised the boot out of instinct and got it wrong. We done them with 10 men. With an extra man on the park we will bury them.


3.) 29 Jul 2018 01:16:22
That was in the last tie mate.


 

 

16 Jan 2018 18:52:28
Has Erik been sold or is it a loan back to his previous club?

...Stevie

{Ed007's Note - It's a loan and so far there's been no agreement on making it permanent although all parties would like to see that happen in the summer.}


1.) 16 Jan 2018 19:20:51
Cheers Ed.

{Ed007's Note - No probs.}


2.) 16 Jan 2018 21:35:49
I heard that there has been two Chelsea youngsters Celtic interested in Mosonda is one and Is a midfielder and word on who the other is ED?

{Ed007's Note - Lewis Baker.}


3.) 16 Jan 2018 22:00:08
Any truth in it ED?

{Ed007's Note - I don't know mate, I just read something about us being linked with him. He's currently at Middlesbrough on loan but I read he hasn't kicked a ball for them since September. He's meant to be a cracking player but if he isn't getting game time for Middlesbrough that sets alarm bells ringing for me.}


4.) 16 Jan 2018 22:36:37
I agree there ED why would we want someone who can't get a game when on Loan. Do we expect any movement this in or out this week?

{Ed007's Note - It's difficult to put timescales on anything, Rich.There will be movement both ways before the window closes.}


5.) 16 Jan 2018 22:49:22
Any news on who may fill Erik’s boots Ed? The only CB I’ve really seen us linked with consistently is Hendry and if that’s the case I don’t think BR will have his wish of being stronger after the window than we were before it. Perhaps a deal for Caulker could be on the cards?

{Ed007's Note - I'd say Ajer and probably more Compper have already taken Sviatchenko's spot.}


6.) 16 Jan 2018 23:43:56
Cheers ED.

Celtic Statement - We note today's decision by the Supreme Court. Celtic's position on this issue has been consistent - that this has always been a matter for the courts of law and also the Scottish football authorities, whose rules are intended to uphold sporting integrity.

In 2013, we expressed surprise - shared by many observers and supporters of the game - over the findings of the SPL Commission that no competitive or sporting advantage had resulted. Today's decision only re-affirms that view.

We are sure now that the footballing authorities in Scotland will wish to review this matter. Celtic awaits the outcome of their review.

...Stevie

1.) 05 Jul 2017 16:03:47
Hopefully every football club and fan in Scotland demands punishment to fit the crime of these cheats. Every Trophy won in that time taken from them. Expect the Government to act also. Regan and Doncaster can clear their desks!


2.) 05 Jul 2017 18:56:04
Regan and doncaster will be popping the diacam in handfulls they must act.


3.) 05 Jul 2017 18:59:26
Sfa already released a statement stating no further action to be taken against the old club it's in the hands of the spfl now. But surely when the cheating happened it was under sfa power so they should be dealing with it.


4.) 05 Jul 2017 20:49:33
SPL SFA SPFL will all be trying to offload it on each other with none of them wanting to be the ones to do it knowing of the angry backlash by the peepel I don't care who does it, to be honest just as long as it gets done if none of the Scottish governing bodies will do it can it be taken to UEFA or CAS?


5.) 05 Jul 2017 20:57:29
I reckon they should give them an option title stripping or demotion back to div 2.


6.) 06 Jul 2017 00:24:05
after the court ruling today and hmrc looking to go after others. what clubs do u think they will be looking at? I take it they will all be in the epl.


7.) 06 Jul 2017 00:26:25
It is inevitable that the 5 league titles won between 2001 and 2010 will be stripped. Juve got 2 titles stripped for match fixing, and the huns punishment will be identical. The authorities also stripped Lance Armstrong and Ben Johnson of their titles also for cheating, and gaining a sporting advantage by doping. I am going to throwa party when they are stuck on 'Going for 50' for time immemorial.

Did anyone read Murray's statement? That guy has a brass neck dropping Craig Whyte's name into it as a deflection.


8.) 06 Jul 2017 11:43:42
theres no way anything will happen to sevco, it will be swept under the masonic carpet as usual.


9.) 06 Jul 2017 20:28:57
If this is brushed under the carpet i will never attend another SPL game in my life. Celtic need to lead from the front with this. I don't want their trophies i want the ones they won by cheating removed from the history books. Just saw on Newsnow a link to the Daily Record phone ins, zombies telling Celtic fans to leave it and that they had already paid fines and were demoted.

Still they believe they were demoted. The only people on this planet who don't understand the meaning of liquidation, poor little Rangers always the victims. Had we died and cheated do you think they would just leave it. No chance.

Really hope all of Scottish football does something about this they can't be allowed to get away with it. There is enough people in the know on the good side of the fence to make sure this is dealt with correctly and they are punished for crimes.


10.) 08 Jul 2017 19:06:52
Stan, who cares? Don't give a toss what happens at Rangers. It about Celtic and how we keep on beating them and the rest. Who cares. Tainted titles makes no odds to is. Be more concerned about the SFA, Regan and Doncaster. Donkeys both of them.


 

 

29 May 2017 12:08:43
Just thought i'd share what i heard on Saturday when dropping off a spare ticket to the owner of the pub we drink in on match days. He's fairly well connected with goings on inside Celtic and it supposedly came from the son of a director that there is a real possibility that Wayne Rooney will be a Celtic player next season. Wouldn't normally bother posting this kind of stuff you here in pubs but with it coming from this source there might be something in it. Mind you he did also say Scott McDonald is going to the dark side, surely not.

...Stevie

1.) 29 May 2017 19:01:54
I could see McDonald at ibrox, Ronald McDonald he'd compliment the other clowns over there.


2.) 30 May 2017 10:42:10
the so called celtic fan mcdonald was about to join rangers before celtic came in for him years ago.


3.) 30 May 2017 10:43:37
Pmsfl Rooney really.


 

 

02 May 2016 17:01:31
Is it true that our shirts next season are going to have Dafabet across the front and Magners across the shoulders above players name?

...Stevie

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard that Stevie but it's definitely a possibility and would be a good money maker.}


1.) 02 May 2016 17:21:01
Celtic will wear Dafabet on the Front of the jersey and magners on the shoulders it was confirmed last week from Lawwell when we signed a new deal with magners stating that magners would be moving on to the back of the shirt on the shoulders!

{Ed007's Note - Cheers, Gaz. I missed that myself.}


2.) 02 May 2016 17:22:08
heard thar maself stevie, magners just extended the sponsorship.


3.) 02 May 2016 17:37:49
Both have been confirmed and going by reports then that seems to be the way?!

{Ed001's Note - it is a Scottish record shirt sponsorship deal.}


4.) 02 May 2016 18:08:20
Ed/ Stevie, does anyone one know what the new shirt deal is in terms of £££/ years?

Thanks.

{Ed007's Note - It's rumoured to be circa £2.75m per year for four years with bonuses for CL qualification.
Stevie, do you know if it's still Magners as the main sponsor on the training kit?}


5.) 02 May 2016 19:11:42
Think so ed i'm sure it was mentioned that a small logo would remain on training kit.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers.}


6.) 02 May 2016 20:18:57
If £2.75m per year is correct that's some deal.


7.) 02 May 2016 20:41:07
With the New Balance deal and the recent Magners/ Dafbet deals and the extra revenue you make from the Zombies. There is no reason why we can't give the New manager a decent transfer budget. Time for some serious investment know.


8.) 02 May 2016 20:54:45
I read that the away top is going to be black with a green design and white trim. Looking forward to seeing what they've come up with.


9.) 02 May 2016 20:57:49
Not keen on either sponsor only because the kids tops look horrible with no sponsor!
But when money is sparce it sounds like a good deal all round, Magners deal will have changed with having the smaller space on the shirt but it's a good wee money maker and with the other mob coming back up and the money we were supposedly losing lol that can be banked again give or take a few 😂 Probably take.


10.) 02 May 2016 23:09:49
Agree Kev I hope it is something like black with flourescent rim sleeves and collar think that will look pretty smart.


11.) 03 May 2016 08:57:34
I think the tops look much better without the sponsor


12.) 03 May 2016 20:47:17
Is the away top not pink.

17 Aug 2018 21:31:46
Hey lads I never knew we had a 55 million pound a year wage bill at Celtic, it must be true just read it on the Sevie page😂😂. 55 million that's equivalent to 55 employees on 20 grand a week😂 Our ballboys must be on a grand a week and the paradise windfall ticket sellers on 100 grand a season😂.

...Stevie

{Ed007's Note - Our wage bill according to the last accounts (2016-17) was £52.2 million - that's 58% of our turnover, down from 71% in 2016 when our wage bill was sitting at £36.9 million.
You have to remember the wage bill covers ALL players at and ALL employees throughout the Club (or company?) from Pedro, the manager, his staff, players, Gerry ******* McCulloch, all the way down to shop staff and office staff, part-time employees the lot.
If you listen to all the doom-mongers and their talk of our financial meltdown, even among Celtic fans and bloggers, what they're saying basically is that we're in the same position as Rangers were when Craig Whyte needed McCoist to qualify for the CL to pay the bills - now does anyone actually believe that?
With season ticket money, annual money from sponsors etc (including the new Dafabet deal) on top of what's been banked the last couple of years the lose of CL revenue is a sore one - not as sore as they way we went out - but it's hardly the financial disaster some are saying.
I was speaking to my "Square Mile Guy" yesterday and Celtic's shares had risen to a yearly high of £1.37 on Thursday's market, the day after we were eliminated from the CL, that's a better sign of our financial well being than anything you'll read on the internet - and that probably includes what I've said 😁


1.) 17 Aug 2018 23:03:32
I find it staggering and quite unbelievable that our wage bill is anywhere near 52 million, not that I'm doubting your post ed. That's a million pound a week, we have a 33 player first team squad, now this is very rough figures, just say their average wage is 10k a week roughly 500,000 a year, that's 16.5 million on highly paid players. Brendan and his staff let's give them 5 million, that's 21.5 million. That leaves 31 million that's roughly 800 x 40 grand a year wages. Where's the 800 40 grand a year employees. Mind you I've no included Pedro, Bankier etc in my sums they"ll have a big chunk of the missing millions🤣.

{Ed007's Note - There's no missing millions lol it's all there in the accounts. How many admin and office staff is there, media/social media staff, technical staff, CelticTV staff and PR, shop staff, ticket office ajd Celtic Pools staff, stewards and kiosk workers, coaches at all levels, Lee Congerton the academy and scouting staff, canteen workers and groundstaff at Lennoxtown, maintenance staff, catering & hospitality and groundstaff at Celtic Park... it goes on and on....
Obviously some of those jobs overlap and there'll be jobs I missed - John Clark and his team - but there's a lot of people involved in keeping us at the top of Scottish football.
Not me though - I'm skinto!


2.) 17 Aug 2018 23:25:36
That is right Ed, your "square mile guy" is s spot on (Y)

Celtic had the BIGGEST profit margin EVER last year if memory serves me right

Adjustments will be made accordingly having not gained entry and given as you indicate what is already been brought in am confident we will produce a profit come December unlike some other Glasgow clubs

After yesterday's TOP panel suspension a certain chairman has called an AGM for the 31st of the month despite the law being for a PLC to give a minimum of THREE weeks notice CLEARLY counting is not there strong point! Someone is trying to get something "passed" before the next court gathering IMO (Y)

{Ed007's Note - Cheers, Jamie, I knew the post would catch your attention and you could add some clarity. My "Square Mile Guy' is still raging he never took up our Tena tip off lol


3.) 18 Aug 2018 00:23:39
Oh f##k Jamies on the scene, this is going to get all high brow and technical now . That's me out 😫🤣.


4.) 18 Aug 2018 10:19:19
With our increased fixed costs being so high you would think more effort, or indeed any effort, would be taken to ensure we had a fighting chance to securing CL money.

Still nothing. That’s total incompetence wrapped up in mind blowing complacency. It beggars belief. Just think what another £60m+ would have done to our bottom line.

All gone, and that is shameful.

The soon to be liquidated Rangers don’t seem to be having a problem improving them with allegedly no money. They have improved their defence. We still don’t have one. And will probably take on Sudova with the same Keystone cop backline.

When push comes to shove our board bottle it and prefer to hope everything will be ok. In any other business heads would roll for such financial mismanagement. That’s just a fact. In our case our CEO will still trouser £1m bonus. Being rewarded for incompetence is a scandal. He should resign. He won’t but he should.


5.) 18 Aug 2018 10:59:39
Is BR not on 3 million a year himself anyways would be interesting to know the annual first team squad salary.


6.) 18 Aug 2018 11:01:47
Jamie if you look at last years accounts as published Sept 17, and remove say £25mill turnover from participation in CL, allow for increase in players wages, allowing for disposal of intangible assetts, amortisation of Eddys £9mill over 4 years, i can't see how we show a profit at all. What am I missing? Wages will be 70% of turnover. Is there some disposals I have missed making up the shortfall in revenue?


7.) 18 Aug 2018 12:28:01
Hi Johnny, In very rough terms the VVD money ( sell on ) has as well as Eric has cleared the purchase of OE . You have the Armstrong money. Cifti, Armstrong among a number of reserves have been taken of the wage bill.

We usually SPEND £5-6 million on players that has not been spent yet and you done have the matchday COSTS and ALSO Bonus monies attached to that. So at this moment in time outwith the new deal have plenty of coverage. In all probability they have not spent having had the outlet for OE to see if we qualify as a fan am exasperated at the next. Will we have a run in the EL? Will Boyata leave other income streams.

But for the avoidance of doubt I expect to spend money within our means and balance the books the year before we only made circa £600k profit but it's still a profit. We could easily cope with a small operating loss (Y)


8.) 18 Aug 2018 17:34:35
Jamie revenue will be about £70 mill tops if we get a Europa run. Fixed costs will wipe that out. can't reduce them unless we sell. Impossible to make a profit.


9.) 18 Aug 2018 20:06:43
Let's wait and see Johnny, Bonuses attached to CL will be massive

Am not overtly worried about it with the £30 mill plus in the bank we are well stocked to suggest we would have a big operating deficit would be folly IMO (Y)


10.) 19 Aug 2018 00:06:14
Yes, that's the difference, superally, had to get the old Rangers into the champions league to keep their heads above the water, failure to do so, meant misery as Mr Pickwick said, failure for Celtic, this year, means there will be a dent in their profits and their pride, it doesn't mean they will cease to exist, as happened to the old Rangers.


11.) 19 Aug 2018 00:45:06
Ainfoh we have a £30mill cash surplus, however the reason PL is not allowing BR to buy is because our costs have increased by £20mill from 2016 till now. that's £20mill in 2 years. that's a lot.


 

 

15 Aug 2018 18:46:37
I hope the club take a sensible approach when pricing 3 match packages for EL if we get there and don't try pricing them up near CL level. £60 for 3 matches would be a good gesture and would probably stick 15 to 20 thousand on the gate. I'm not holding my breath tho.

...Stevie

1.) 15 Aug 2018 19:18:24
Completely agree Stevie sure it was about £75 last time in Europa. Biggest disappointment for me is going to be sundays nightmare for my travel 😬.


2.) 15 Aug 2018 19:31:01
Are you kidding they will be wanting 90 to 100 for the 3 match package.


3.) 15 Aug 2018 20:05:23
It's one of the downsides of EL Welshy the Thursday -Sunday thing, i stay in the central belt so doesn't really bother me but must be a nightmare for the Irish and support from down south.


4.) 15 Aug 2018 20:27:52
Can see the price being £100 a skull.


 

 

15 Aug 2018 12:57:01
Here's a list of players that will send shivers down your spine that we've had in fairly recent years.
Olivier Kapo
Holmber Fridjohnson
Steven Mouyokolo
Mo Bangura
Kazim Richards
Carlton Cole
Tyler Blackett
Stefan Scepovic
Teemu Pukki
Amido Balde
Mubarak Wakaso
Jo Inge Berget
Alexandar Tonev

Christ no wonder we're scared to go into the transfer market😂😂.

...Stevie

1.) 15 Aug 2018 13:03:20
How could I miss out Derk the tampon Boerrigter 😣.


2.) 15 Aug 2018 13:24:41
You better put Rogic on that list to keep the Dark Knight happy 😊.


3.) 15 Aug 2018 13:25:42
I was trying to think of Wakasos name the other night where did he end up? Mouyokolo 😂 Well remembered that!


4.) 15 Aug 2018 13:35:05
Mubarak Wakaso? Plays for deportivo alaves.

He wasn’t actually a bad player, he scored an absolute belter for us against Salzburg.


5.) 15 Aug 2018 13:36:28
Add to that - DDV, Gamboa, Hendry, Commper, Kouassi, Benyu, Hayes. I wonder what the bunnet would have said to any of his managers if they came to him with a list that had any the names mentioned on it😂😂.


6.) 15 Aug 2018 15:04:08
I mind Wakasos goal against Salzburg Andy it was a belter. He had some pace if I mind right but so has Usain Bolt to be fair 🤣.


7.) 15 Aug 2018 15:36:18
If I mind right Lennon spoke very highly of Steven Mouyokolo.
Did he not get a bad injury that basically killed his Celtic career?


8.) 15 Aug 2018 16:29:44
Not sure if we got him Kev after his big injury that’s why he was a free.


 

 

15 Aug 2018 10:46:15
Reading some of the posts down the page many are mentioning spending money and get back challenging in CL. Those days are gone, we don't have the free income i. e either a sugar daddy to throw obscene amounts of cash at us or a tv deal to throw similar at us. If we spent every penny we have on transfers it wouldn't make a huge difference to the success we're currently having, ok we might win the league by 30 points instead of 15. I find it incredible that people think it's that simple to compete with the massive spending sides we are paupers when it comes to CL level. Playing devils advocate here just say we spent 30 or 40 million last month, a fortune in our world but not a lot in today's game and failed to qualify for CL, where does that leave us? those players still have to be paid their 50 grand a week for beating Dundee, StMirren, Livi etc for remainder of season. Yeah I want a few signings in but to talk of trying to compete at CL level is nonsense and dissing the Europa league as a crap tournament is baffling, this is where we belong at the moment whether we like it or not.

...Stevie

1.) 15 Aug 2018 10:58:07
Stevie we spent that kind of cash on transfers and wages when Martin O'Neill was manager and we got to a European final. It's ambition. Spend and reap the rewards on and off the park.


2.) 15 Aug 2018 11:05:58
To be honest Stevie l agree with you that Celtic can't spend stupid money on players. We don't have that kind of finance to buy the very top u need to compete against the top sides. However l do think we should be able to get players at a better standard then what's there at the min especially in the defence. I said in last year's champions league that we are simple making up the numbers like most teams in pot 3 and 4. We will still need players in especially the defence which gives up goals to even the poorest side in the Scotland. Apologies if l am wrong but l think Celtic have only had one clean sheet in the last 5 matches. The Europa league has some serious sides in it and will be a serious test if we can qualify for the group stages.


3.) 15 Aug 2018 11:06:38
Too sensible. Come back after the window is shut and silly season is over with comments like that young man.


4.) 15 Aug 2018 11:11:07
Stan other teams were not paying
200 million for players or give 300 thousand a week in wages in Martin oneills day.

Do you really think we could have got players like
Sutton
Hartson
Lennon for 6 million now a days?

Not a chance.

A bhoy out of psg reserves costs 9 million.


5.) 15 Aug 2018 11:12:17
Stevie agree with what’s been said, although with better scouting we wouldn’t need £40 million and we could at least put up a better showing. To look at some good buying over the years Lubo, Henrik, mjallby, Agatha, VVD, Wanyama, Forster, Hooper, Petrov, Ledley, Matthews, mulgrew, etc there's > 10 players and all for less than £20m and I think most would agree we would get a few results.

It’s not what we spend eg Raphael £5m, it’s who.

Man City, PSG, Man Utd etc all spent £100s millions and still not got success in Europe so it’s not the route to go down.

Another point, BR seemed to have full control of signings with Congerton. Perhaps with so many BR players not playing the board have got involved. From DDV, Gambia, Comper, Benyu, etc a lot has been spent on wages for what reason? Maybe it’s as Mourinho says managers are now just head coaches.

Get the scouts to earn their corn.


6.) 15 Aug 2018 11:30:25
I couldn't care less what other clubs do kev. That's the problem currently infesting our club comparing what others do. Maybe if we focused on ourselves we would be in a better place. Always the poor little us defeatist attitude in this country.


7.) 15 Aug 2018 11:31:42
Jsean you could add Dembele, Armstrong, Ntcham, Sinclair, Griffiths and Rogic to that list of decent scouting not costing a fortune.


8.) 15 Aug 2018 11:33:23
It's a realist attitude Stan.


9.) 15 Aug 2018 11:37:40
Stan of coarse what other clubs can do is important.
We are all in the same market for players.

So we invest say 30 million.
What does it get you when youth players now cost 9 million?

Average players are costing 20 million


The days of getting seasoned pro's for 5 or 6 million are gone.


10.) 15 Aug 2018 11:42:39
To people with no ambition it is.


11.) 15 Aug 2018 11:52:08
There are plenty of places to go find talented players. U don't have to go to the over rated and over prices premier league to find players kev. Look at VVD and big Victor as a example.


12.) 15 Aug 2018 12:43:28
Ter 161 both VVD and Victor were not quality experienced champions league players.

And that is what people like Stan are calling for.
They don't want under a million 20 year old players that are prospects.
They don't want 22 year old 3 million pound gambles that haven't won anything and are inexperienced

They want players that have been there and done it.

We would never have had van djyk or big Victor if some of the fans on here were incharge.


13.) 15 Aug 2018 13:10:57
Did i say get rid of the 'projects' we have? No. If we added quality experienced players to play alongside the 'projects' we currently have then we might have done better.

Kev all you are doing is naming the 'projects' who made us cash. How about naming the list that never kicked a ball.


14.) 15 Aug 2018 13:51:47
I didn't name anyone. It was other people that named players.
I just informed them that they players didn't fall into the category of players you want to sign.


15.) 15 Aug 2018 15:14:00
Kev reading your posts we may as well just pack it in. AEK are not a great side. We should beat them. We are not asking for £20mill players but over the last 18 months we have not strengthened at the back. We are weaker than last season as a whole but when a poster mentions that you argue we are stronger than last year because players have improved? Who is better than last year? We need additions.


16.) 15 Aug 2018 21:16:40
Stan, To spend the equivalent nowadays to get that quality of player like Sutton, Hartson, Thompson and Lennon you would be looking at over 100 million . Not mentioning O'Neil inheriting Larsson.


 

 

14 Aug 2018 22:21:52
First job tomorrow morning should be to get Boyota tae f### asap. Disgrace of a player on and off the pitch.

...Stevie

1.) 15 Aug 2018 20:49:07
I wish the club would reveal more but in the end that would only devalue him so best to get what we can, punt him then, if he achieves his potential, take the add ons.

You asking me that question Callum? I was replying to BB when he said we've never had our bums off seats since UEFA Cup final. Come on keep up son🤣.

At least get the year right we reached euro final if your going to troll Bruce. Secondly my bum was off my seat many times when Strachan took us to CL last 16 twice.

If they're better than what we've got and not signings like Pukki, Fortune, Balde, Hooiveld, Compper, Benyu, Kouassi, Janko, Scepovic, Ciftci and many more who were brought in to appease the "we need new signings" brigade.

You're correct Madyin, if they type of pitches are heavily watered then there's not a problem with them. Seems to be when we come calling they don't see a bit of water and they become similar to trying to play on a piece of tacky rubber. There should be a ruling that refs should make sure pitch is heavily watered at start and half time to ensure safety to players.

I find it staggering and quite unbelievable that our wage bill is anywhere near 52 million, not that I'm doubting your post ed. That's a million pound a week, we have a 33 player first team squad, now this is very rough figures, just say their average wage is 10k a week roughly 500,000 a year, that's 16.5 million on highly paid players. Brendan and his staff let's give them 5 million, that's 21.5 million. That leaves 31 million that's roughly 800 x 40 grand a year wages. Where's the 800 40 grand a year employees. Mind you I've no included Pedro, Bankier etc in my sums they"ll have a big chunk of the missing millions🤣.

{Ed007's Note - There's no missing millions lol it's all there in the accounts. How many admin and office staff is there, media/social media staff, technical staff, CelticTV staff and PR, shop staff, ticket office ajd Celtic Pools staff, stewards and kiosk workers, coaches at all levels, Lee Congerton the academy and scouting staff, canteen workers and groundstaff at Lennoxtown, maintenance staff, catering & hospitality and groundstaff at Celtic Park... it goes on and on....
Obviously some of those jobs overlap and there'll be jobs I missed - John Clark and his team - but there's a lot of people involved in keeping us at the top of Scottish football.
Not me though - I'm skinto!
