Oh F**k, Brendan's off to Spartak Moscow now!


1.) 23 Oct 2018 07:31:45
They really don't want him here do they lol.

2.) 23 Oct 2018 22:41:00
It's really just becoming white noise now, he'll be linked to every half decent team on Earth from now to 10IAR.
They'll probably have him as Stevie G's successor when the messiah gets 'resigned'.

There we go, Brendan's off to Newcastle now!


1.) 13 Oct 2018 12:37:53
If BR feels like he isn't being backed at Celtic, Newcastle would be even worse. Only, they aren't even a top side in their league. Villa was more realistic and I laughed that one off. I think we'll all just have to get used to BR being linked with every single English job.

2.) 13 Oct 2018 12:51:20
Eventually he will leave and the press will celebrate that they got one right.

3.) 13 Oct 2018 13:52:43
this love affair with Steven Gerrard and Rangers that the Scottish media seem to be having will not last for long. They seem to be trying their hardest to upset the Celtic dressing room and back room at present. Its not just the constant media attention on trying to get Brendan a new job, it impacts on our ability to recruit. Who will come to work with BR and improve as a player under his guidance if they feel he will be gone 6 months after signing.

Got involved in this one over on the Sevvies site and I wondered how the rest of you sit on this one. The SFA took Steve Clark away from Kilmarnock when they're currently in their most successful period for more than 50 years. As an association, I would say they have a responsibility to keep our teams as competitive as possible which in turn makes our league more competitive. For that reason, I don't think they should be taking a successful manager away from a member club. For me it simply demonstrates that their influence is destructive to our game. They charged Broony with not acting in the best interests of Scottish football. In my opinion, they should now be facing those charges. Thoughts anyone?


1.) 21 May 2019 18:43:45
As much as I have no interest in the sfa that’s a ridiculous post bud.

2.) 21 May 2019 19:14:28
So let me get this right COYBIG you’re saying the SFA should NOT appoint a success manager?

3.) 21 May 2019 19:15:47
A blind man could see that Clarke was best man for the Scotland job mate.
For once the sfa have got it right and kept a good manager involved in Scottish football.

4.) 21 May 2019 19:22:15
Cant see your logic there mate, a think he was leaving kilmarnock anyway for family reasons but the sfa are entitled to go for whoever they want. Personally I don't like international football so I shouldn't really have an opinion but I think clarke has just taken his last managers job, scotland will ruin his reputation, well maybe he'll end up back at killie.

5.) 21 May 2019 19:36:18
The bottom line is Kilmarnock will probably go downhill from here after progressing into a top three side, capable of taking points off ANY SPL team and be replaced by another Lee McCulloch or Allen Johnston type who will possibly undo all the good work done before?
I don't think the SFA forced Clarke to leave or if Kilmarnock had tried to extend his stay, but he seems to have made his own mind up for personal reasons and for those of you that follow International football, I suppose it's light years better than EBT McLeish.

6.) 21 May 2019 19:50:00
Great appointment for Scotland
Here to a major finals
It’s been a while
Scotland for the World Cup!

7.) 21 May 2019 19:56:02
Ok, doesn’t sound like i’m getting much support for this. My point is they should be looking for someone who’s either out of work or from another association. I don’t think they should’ve sacked Strachan as he he came close to qualification which is probably about as good as we can expect.

8.) 21 May 2019 20:08:33
Ok Coybig let's go for Alex Mcleish.

9.) 21 May 2019 20:21:31
COYBIG they should be looking for the best they can get no matter what job he's in IMO.

10.) 21 May 2019 20:51:15
Fair enough Kev, it’s an opinion, as is mine. It may seem a bit defeatist, but I’m not sure any manager can get us to a major tournament now. If I’m right about that, it would make more sense to leave Clark at Kilmarnock where we he could continue to enhance our game and appoint someone who’s out of work. Terry, no!

11.) 21 May 2019 21:24:02
Clarke was always leaving killie . i for 1 want scotland to do well and think it would have been stupid for scotland to miss this chance at a decent manager . for once they have got their finger out and made the right appointment . sacking strachan was a mistake as he done not too bad but he was getting to that stubborn strachan era so i can see why he got the boot also . hopefully bowie will fund another good manager to keep killie on the right footing as we do need progressive clubs in scotland for us all to improve . on the fact of them bringing the game into disrepute . they've been doing that since they found out rangers was dying then carried it on to confer the tainted titles to newco . so ye they should all be charged 😂
Hail hail.

12.) 21 May 2019 21:26:08
How often hv Killie taken points from old firm over last 18 months. Got to think Clarke can set us up to nick results against higher ranked nations instead of the cannon fodder under EBT.

13.) 21 May 2019 21:49:41
I think he’ll do well. Whether he can get us to a major tournament is another story but I hope he proves me wrong. I think we all know that managing the national side is a different kettle of fish to club management. Despite my opposition to this, I’ll be right behind him and I hope Griff will get back to full fitness to take part in it with him.

14.) 21 May 2019 21:50:48
I think we have the players to do a lot better than we have of late and Clarke is a manager that will organise them properly.

15.) 22 May 2019 00:04:11
Think he had decided to go back down sarf, anyway, so maybe he let the SFA know this, and that's why they could appoint him as Scotland manager without having quibbles about weakening one of the Scottish clubs.

16.) 22 May 2019 00:05:18
Good post buddy. Im happy with clarke as new manger excited to watch scotland games again. But as you says it has weaken kilmarnock wile they were improveing our league and makeing it more intresting and could have done well in europe next season with clark. Something our league needs. Think scottish football as a whole should be pushing sky for more money and i mean everyone invovled with scottish football. How much alone to do think they make off our old firm games. People like hugh keevins saying the money sky give our league is not scraps.

17.) 22 May 2019 00:06:55
Terry, but there is no OF, just a Glasgow Derby with the new boys on the block.

18.) 21 May 2019 23:44:15
Terry Munroe, who is the old firm? I have to say Clarke's standing at the moment is very high . Will it be the same in two years time . ? I doubt it .
The biggest problem Clarke and Celtic has, is if Clarke wants to have the best Scottish players playing their best football, he is going to want very many Celtic players playing at their best in friendlies and competitive games . He will want to develop best playing style to suit the style he thinks best .
Celtic have too many games in a season and half our players will have many more .

Just one other point, he should pick Dembele for Scotland's first competitive game and bring him on for as little as last minute and Scotland has Dembele for his whole career.

Brilliant piece by Chris Sutton today on the 'doom and gloom' merchants among the Celtic support. Well worth a read.


1.) 18 May 2019 10:26:25
Haven't read it but it's true a lot of us are failing to appreciate the most successful period of a Celtic team for many years and letting negativity cloud the true picture of success.
The team have had to put overcome a long string of problems, hurdles, injuries, controversy and change since day one of the season including a horror transfer window and exit from the CL.
However, here we are on the verge of a magnificent achievement and are still the dominant force in this country by far.
The high profile desertion of a selfish manager in February would have crushed many other teams moral, confidence and momentum and -although it's clear we have not been at our best - it's enormous credit to the players that they carried on regardless, showing remarkable strength of character to win the league at Pittodrie.

The media have predictably played their part in filling our minds with doubt and criticism deflecting away from their own teams barren season - and don't get me started on referee controversies.
OK Sevco have moved up a place, but where's the trophies and medals for that? You'd think we had lost the league last week .
All of us hate to lose as we are so used to winning and maybe we should take a wee breath, realize under the circumstances and events stated, it wasn't possible to win every game 4 or 5 zip and although losing at Ibrox again hurt us all, it changes NOTHING.

2.) 18 May 2019 10:33:11
Saw it coy he was spot on.

3.) 18 May 2019 11:52:35
This is our dominant period I can remember when the old club were barely winning leagues against Aberdeen even when they out spent them 5-1 using all Murray’s financial wizardry. The press would never print a negative about oldco it was all positive spin. But we get negative after negative but they get pleasure from our reaction. The best way to deal with the haters is to not react and do what Broonie and Lustig do. laugh in their faces?

4.) 18 May 2019 12:04:10
OMC commented in another post how the Scottish media must love us because so many of us just accept the pish that’s written without questioning it. They then give it credence by commenting further on it. On a daily basis, James Traynor lobs a hand grenade in here and sits back to view the ensuing carnage.

Just back from Celtic Park with my daughter laying our tributes to Big Billy. I bumped into a guy I went to school with and his dad. We live about 50 miles apart and don't even have each other's phone numbers. Since we left school the only times I've ever seen him is in connection with Celtic. We were both impressed by the number of tributes from other clubs, Aberdeen, Motherwell, Porto, a couple from Inter and a lot from Rangers fans. I take my hat off to them all. Football is often seen as, and reported as, being divisive and responsible for trouble but there's a lot of unity created by football as well and sometimes I really wish this was given a bit more prominence.




23 Apr 2019 20:43:41
My first game was the SC semi final in 1969 but I was too wee. I was only 6 and I couldn't see the pitch and I spent the entire second half of the game picking the coconut off a macaroon bar. I don't like coconut. My dad took me to a couple more when I was a wee bit older but the pivotal moment for me was the 1972 SC Final. We went early and got to the front which was just as well because there were 106,000 at the game. Williams, Craig, Brogan, Murdoch, McNeill, Connolly, Johnstone, Deans, Macari, Dalglish and Callaghan. Bertie was playing with Hibs that day and Lennox was our substitute but I don't think he was brought on so there were 5 of the Lions on the pitch. Big Billy opened the scoring after 6 minutes and we went on to hammer a very, very good Hibs side 6-1. I can still picture the ball swinging over from the corner and Big Billy thumping it into the net for his third goal in a Scottish Cup final. Not bad for a centre half. RIP big man and thanks for the memories.

It's nice to see Brendan Rogers in his dream job again. 😂😂😂😂😂.

Find it hard to believe. I really thought he got what it meant to manage Celtic but clearly he doesn’t. I think he’ll regret this decision at some point but to be honest, I don’t really care. Happy with either NL or SC and one of them can take their place in Celtic history as the guy who lead us to 10 in a row.

Gerry, my response to that ridiculous post from GGGG was a touch less diplomatic but Ed has chosen not to publish it. It’s a little bit disappointing but I guess I’ll have to use a bit more tact in these situations. However, my point is that I agree with you completely and perhaps I should avoid the site when the moonhowlers are out in force.

Good shout Kwaj. As I’ve said before, we need to stop subscribing to SKY and BT as this only helps to widen the gap between us and Europe’s elite.

Careful Kev, you’re starting to sound a bit like Dave King. Next you’ll be saying the titles we won when ‘they’ weren’t there don’t count.

Players are under contract and will only leave if they are allowed to. As for rubbing players up the wrong way, Jock Stein did that and whilst he lost quite a few players because they couldn’t handle it, the ones he had on board would have run through a brick wall for him. On the subject of trebles, before Rodgers arrived we had only ever won the treble 3 times in our unbroken history. Of the 21 previous managers, up to that point, only two managed to do it, Jock Stein (twice) and Martin O’Neill. It seems to me that to judge a manager on being unable to deliver a treble is an indication of how ‘entitled’ a lot of us have become.
