It seems that young Mousunda is coming for 18 months. If the latest reports are to be believed. I usually take these things with a pinch of crystal meth, but, I think this could be a runner.

This is the type of quality I think will lift us. I hope it's true.

1.) 27 Jan 2018 11:07:03
Think that will be the end off rgic, he'll b away in summer then tat gives us a year to find a replacement for musanda.

2.) 27 Jan 2018 11:16:00
Rogic is class and if anybody is leaving it will be Mcgreggir who isn't good enough to be in a team that holds it's own in Europe. Rogers is twice the player and it amazes me people talk about him leaving.

The one thing that could swing it that way is he us more likely to attract a bid than Callumn.

I hope Rogic stays.

3.) 27 Jan 2018 11:30:53
Not seen much of Mousonda But when came on for Chelsea the other week against Birghton he did look the part. Not normally a fan of loan deals but if it is 18 months then def a good signing. HH.

4.) 27 Jan 2018 11:44:43
Rogic is a far better player than McGregor, but unfortunately he's made out of Weetabix.

5.) 27 Jan 2018 11:53:18
Just need to dry him out on a bowl and he turns into the hardest substance known to humankind.

6.) 27 Jan 2018 12:36:48
Rogic has undoubted talent and ability, but has been injured far too often and misses far too much football.
Not only is he injury-prone, but his recovery time is far too long and as much as I rate him, we can't rely on him being fit and avail.
McGregor is only playing because Armstrong, Rogic and Roberts are not available and he has been very disappointing for weeks, although on his game he can contribute with a goal or two.

7.) 27 Jan 2018 12:49:26
See this rubbish McGregor is only play because other players are injured it's nonsense.
McGregor has played and scored at every level for Celtic.
Every team needs a player like McGregor. A utility man that will make sacrifices and play anywhere the team needs him to.
Always under rated by fans but loved by manager's.
He's not long ago been handed a four year contracted.
Yes rogic in a very good player but he is no use to us sitting in the stand. His time at Celtic must be running out.

8.) 27 Jan 2018 19:27:21
He’s made of weetabix 😂😂😂 brilliant! as good as Rogic is he needs to be fit to be of benefit to the team. What was abundantly clear is that McGregor is not the answer to AM position he’s neat and tidy but even he looks jaded. squad has stayed the same for years urgently needs freshened up so many players out injured the squad at present is winning games but barely and lack confidence to take the chances and really finish teams off!



26 Jan 2018 13:14:43
I see Rogers is talking about the absolute need to strengthen now in the Evening Times.

Get ready for a bit of activity lads.

Not long now. And not projects. Quality.

I hope for three, but will be happy with two.

1.) 26 Jan 2018 16:46:35
We can all talk about it MP.

2.) 27 Jan 2018 10:59:56
I hear you Jim, but, I absolutely believe we will do it. In fact, I'm not one for increasing bookies take gone pay, as every gambler is, but I would bet good money this will happen.

Don't get me wrong I have put a deposit down in a padded cell just in case we don't, but, it will happen mate.



05 Jan 2018 13:46:41
I'm hearing from a very unreliable source that Kim Sung Yuen is coming back to us from Swansea.

1.) 05 Jan 2018 14:37:41
Was it rogers who bought him at Swansea?

2.) 05 Jan 2018 15:18:08
No it was Michael Laudrup that bought him, although there were rumours Liverpool were looking at him too.

3.) 05 Jan 2018 15:35:23
Is that Ki Sung-Yuens sister.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 08:58:54
I read that article too. Wasn't any link other than he wants to leave and used to play for us. nowhere did it say that we were interested in him.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 10:14:46
My source was very unreliable indeed it would seem.

I never believed it anyway. The again I never believe any rumour regarding us.

Safer that way. :)



21 Aug 2017 18:47:22
Hearing the Cape Town team have announced the sale of the CB to us.



19 Jan 2017 20:38:50
Rumours in Portugal that we have offered 800k Euros for Sturgeon. You never know.

Fabio Sturgeon Goals and Skills

1.) 19 Jan 2017 22:53:13
he looks. fabio

2.) 20 Jan 2017 01:20:45
If they take 800k it's worth a punt mabey. I was going to go down the route of we need to spend but then the skelper argument comes into play. Is this the work of pedro's time share relative benfica scout me wonders? Anyone follow the leauge and can shed some light?

3.) 20 Jan 2017 08:49:02
rglen8 I would say the calibre of player is more important than the fee. If we go for somebody who the fans can get excited about then it's a bonus if he's coming in on the cheap as well.

4.) 20 Jan 2017 10:49:11
Is see it reported that Darlington Nagbe says he wants to come and hopes we are still interested. Maybe we are playing a hand with his club.

5.) 20 Jan 2017 17:31:09
Got to laugh. We are all on about taking punts at 800k. that's about all rangers have

6.) 20 Jan 2017 22:41:24
He looks utter shite. Certainly no better than we have at the moment. would keep the bench warm. Its only a bargain if you want something but I certainly wouldn't pick him.

Well, my idea to have a large malt halfway through the first half ended up being six, as I watched the whole game again. I went to my kip about 2am and nearly got battered as I woke up my beloved.

Surprisingly she didn't share my enthusiasm for my team and let me know in no uncertain terms. It was touch and go wether I was heading back to the sofa, when I say heading I of course mean limping and trying to stem a bloodied snib.

I am in possession of a malt whiskey head that feels like there's a badger in there trying to escape.

I checked my texts to see if my big hun pal got back to me. I enquired how much he lost at the bookies. Strangely he hasn't replied so as you can imagine it must be at least £100. Poor deluded cant.

Anyway, head bursting aside, I'm still buzzing about how our young team stood up and played.

I also took a wee trip into SWALLOW SWALLOW last night, and by feck are they spewing. I haven't laughed so much in ages. Zenit are shit, we are shit, Zenit had a break, Zenit are rubbish and so in and so forth.

Total shower of deluded barstewards.

I can't wait until we visit their delapidated stadium and tear them a new one.

Next Thursday if we again okay with no fear I am convinced we will score. Even if it goes against us as long as we get stuck in I will be proud of them. Mancini was feckin shellshocked, something he had in common with Huns everywhere.

I'm actually enjoying my erupting skull, as it reminds me why I have it.

It will take a long time for me to lose that feeling, not as long as it will take to get out of the doghouse with my mrs but a long time.

She said after I woke her up, I attempted to tell her about the game. For some reason she wasn't that interested and had to resort to threats of extreme violence to shut me up.

Some people just don't get it.

This is the confidence boost our team needed. And all of us for that matter.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 12:55:56
You were drinking last night? We wouldn’tve guessed 🤣.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 13:08:05
I know, I hide it well. It tasted great and it was a case of, just one more. That happened five times and I pour a real hauf.

Paying the price today but no regrets.

{Ed007's Note - I noted (and I was shocked/scared that) you were surprisingly positive and jovial last night, MP. May I suggest you drink more often.... ;)

3.) 16 Feb 2018 19:51:12
I am
A naturally jovial type. Thought by many to be decent company. When I was online I hadn’t started to drink, so you can imagine the quality of my patter when I was three sheets.

Fecking hilarious, talking to masel mind. The mrs was in the room watching a film. She didn’t know what she was missing.

I’m sitting here seriously considering a curer. It has dawned on me that 6 trebles can be hard to get over. Maybe we should go for 6 trebles in a row and give all of Hundom a hangover they will never recover from. Still haven’t heard from my big bluenose pal. Maybe he got sad drunk last night.



13 Jan 2018 10:39:54
I read this morning, with a sense of aw naw, Rogers talking up the defence. I sincerely hope he was trying to give them a boost and not alluding to a position that we don't need anybody.

How could the board expect the fans to fork out near on £50 for a ticket against Zenit if they don't address the farcical defence we have?

The only people who can derail our superiority sit in our boardroom in my opinion.

I can't see them mess it again, but with Celtic boards you never can tell. History is on the side of complacency and hoping.

1.) 13 Jan 2018 11:48:03
I get a bit frustrated when folk bang on about mcginn etc, good players but again going by our track record we don't sign loads of players at one time, so if we focus on midfielders again - we are not addressing what everyone knows we should be addressing.

I see "a this is a bad window blah blah. " coming - so we should be getting good defenders lined up on precontracts for the summer then? no?

2.) 13 Jan 2018 12:27:21
Digibanger its more than good defenders. The reason Celtic have gone backwards this year is down to the form of Sinclair and Roberts, but mainly Sinclair. Dembele got all the plaudits but look at him this season. Average at best. Why? When Sinclair was playing he was often unplayable. Carried the ball forward, opened up defences got the ball through to the front men. So did Roberts but to a lesser extent. Sinclair one side Roberts tbe other. Whomever played up front Dembele or Griff we got goals. Now Sinclair is struggling and Roberts missing we are not the same threat. So we need Roberts back and try to get Sinclair back or we need new wingers either for this season or next but that for me is the fix. Then 2 CB's and a keeper and by and large sorted.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 12:58:30
Every 6 months for as many years as I can remember the Celtic maanger always says that he wants to bring in as many new players at the START of the transfer window. IT NEVER HAPPENS. So far we have brought in a defender who is cup tied for Europe, a winger back out on loan and a 17 year old for the future. Our squad is no better than the end of the year.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 13:13:03
@ Johnnymac
I think it's unfair to name individual players as the reason for Celtic not reaching the heights of last year. What the invincible's did last year was exceptional and anyone who expected them to repeat that phenomenon this year is a little bit Naive if you ask me. I think Celtic as a whole have not been charging on all cylinders this season and is probably down to tiredness and perhaps a little bit of complacency. I find your comments with regards to getting Roberts back or a new winger more than a little disrespectful to James Forrest. Roberts might be ready at the end of February but that is no guarantee that he is going to walk into the starting eleven.

5.) 13 Jan 2018 13:39:36
Players get paid a lot of money to play. It is not disrespectful to point out when they have lost form for a prolonged period. Its up to them to sort it. Sinclair has been a shadow of last year in an attacking sense. He is to keen to play the safe ball and his finishing has been less than what we expect.

I don know of any other work arena where if your performance slips nobody mentions it. They are supposed to be men, are we hurting their feelings? that's a shame.

Everybody knows we haven't been at it and its due to players not performing, when they stop taking their wages they will be exempt from criticism. Until then man up and find the form. Dembelle has been awful, his touch has deserted him so far and that in itself could cost us a few million if we punt him this window. I would see him and hope he regains his touch and sell him in th summer. Its like trying to sell your car when it has had it wheels stolen, not the best time.

The reason they are getting flack is because they aren't even playing ok never mind like last year.

As for Roberts, if he is back on form he leaves forrest in his wake.

6.) 13 Jan 2018 15:43:56
Donjim. What a load of tosh you sre talking. Everyman and his dog knows Sinclair is behind last season. Unfair to name players? Why. The reason we are not as good as last season is because Sinclsir, Dembele, Roberts not as good as they were. Fact. Forrest doing better is great but what has that to do with my comment on Roberts and Sinclair? As Magicpole says if Roberts gets back to last season form he is on the team sheet before Forrest.

7.) 13 Jan 2018 18:11:01
Don’t forget apart from KT and hopefully Ajer improves year on year that Our GK and defenders are total Shoite and need replaced for us to progress.

Zenit will win home and away - seen nothing this season says otherwise.

8.) 13 Jan 2018 19:48:04
Johnnymac can we assume that as we are not as good this year it is because as you say Sinclair, Dembele and ROBERTS are not as good as they were, that the others such as Armstrong, Griffiths Simunovic etc are as good as they were if not better. this was my point, not that 2 or 3 are worse but the whole team has gone backwards a bit and unfair to blame anyone in particular.

9.) 13 Jan 2018 20:31:25
Magicpole, posters like yourself contribute to the " defencive rubbish "as you describe of our defence . Brendan Rodgers has many strings to his bow which makes him the good manager he is . One he places a lot of emphasis on is confidence building . If u ever become a parent you will quickly learn that your children will react positively to praise and confidence building . If u are a Celtic supporter u should want Celtic team to react positively .
We know Dembele reads Celtic forums as he taunted forum users in the summer .

10.) 14 Jan 2018 10:41:46
Well he was praised generously old man. But unlike children, adults need t be told the truth, and supported to return to the previous behaviour or form. If you ever had children I hope you didn't bring the up thinking everything they did was brilliant even if it wasn't.

Thats lowers standard, not just in football, but in life. Sometimes the truth hurts, if Dumbelle can't take criticism when it s based upon the actual reality then he is nothing more than a child, with a feeling of entitlement. Praise me praise me when I'm great, look the other way when Im not.

Boo hoo for their feelings. If he thinks he is going t avoid negativity then he is in the wrong business, in football and life. He is in control of the bar by which we judge him. You obviously support and encourage them to get back but you don't ignore the elephant in the room because it might make him sad.

Posters like you encourage happy clapping and no criticism because you think it hurts a team. Did you not criticise your children when their behaviour wasn't up to it? In case they were sad.

You give them the coping mechanisms to overcome bad times by getting them to believe in themselves, not pretend everything is brilliant when its not.

11.) 14 Jan 2018 13:02:50
A lot have took a dip in form this season. Jozo, Armstrong, Griffiths, Dembele, Tierney, Lustig, Roberts, Sinclair you could list more. Definitely due to the amount of games we have had to play. Some didn't get a full rest over summer because of the ridiculously scheduled international fixtures. Lustig seems to be suffering most by it as his age and legs are catching up on him. He needs a rest but can't due to the injury of Ralston. Moussa and Leigh are struggling for different reasons as both have had plenty of rest as has Armstrong as he gets swapped a lot for Newham. To me I think Sinclair has been sussed out as have Celtic which is another reason for the dip in form. Pressure on the defence seems to turn into goals now so hopefully with the rest a few additions and a tweak in tactics and style of play will help is rediscover last seasons form again.

12.) 15 Jan 2018 00:42:00
You are talking nonsense Magicpole . When my children were playing footbaii and camogi I supported then and encouraged them profusely .
Also when they were preparing for exames right up to their degrees ( all five got fist class honours ) even whe was studying and attaining her Bar examples wive and I encouraged and supported all five into their professional jobs .
As children we reprimanded them for the things children need reprimanding for.



02 Jan 2018 19:09:22
Anybody know where my pal could watch the City v Watford game in the city centre? It's not in sky so would need to be a pub that gets satellite games. Cheers.



27 Aug 2017 09:17:02
This is what it's like to be Celtic
Feck about with transfers you know.
Takes that long, a beard is certain to grow, certain to grow.

Kinda sums up my view on our transfer policy.

1.) 27 Aug 2017 11:15:06
This is how it feels to be celtic
Transfer plans revealed months ago
But guarantee the fans
Will still be having a moan, having a moan

Understand your frustration bud but the gaffer told us a couple will be brought in and then a few after qualification, there's still a week left, If BR had told us differently then yeah i can understand the worry and whingeing, so if no one comes in now fair enough whinge away, but i can't see that happening, i expect a few more ins and outs tbh.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 20:19:50
Rogers told us the plan was to get the players bedded in before we started the qualifiers. His words not mine.

We will bring people in but it won't be the first choices obviously. Rivaldo gone now, so where to go with that one. We need a full back as I don't think Ralston is ready yet for CL if he ever will be, which I doubt.

Gamboa might be away and Lustig has been a worry in the last couple of games.

I know I should never thought we wouldn't be flagging about with less than a week left of the CL window.

I don't think that's good enough.



11 Aug 2017 21:43:11
Well that was truly abysmal. The worst performance in a couple of years. Hayes needs sent back. Truly woeful and a worry for Wednesday.

1.) 11 Aug 2017 22:05:52
Bit dramatic mate, granted it wasn't a great performance but until we get our injured players back fit and playing we're going to get some disjointed performances. it's been made perfectly clear that Rodgers isn't going to just sign for the sake of it. Bitton isn't a centre half no matter what anyone says and Forrest isn't a striker either and never will be. I just hope we can get through this Astana tie playing with a centre mid as a centre half and with only one fully fit striker as is I've said unless Rodgers has a change of heart that's what he's intending on doing with the possible exception of wee roberts.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 22:12:31
Bit harsh, hardly truly abysmal. Poor yes. I think your wrong to single Hayes out, most of the players didn't really get going. Give the wee man time eh, too early in his celtic career to judge i feel.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 22:22:01
Agreed. Hard work but a wins a win. The team for Wednesday almost picks itself but to me it's the difference between a 4-3-3 starting wee McGregor or a 4-2-3-1 with Rogic.

4.) 11 Aug 2017 22:49:12
you know what

0-1 celtic.

that's what's wins championships, clean sheet and a lump of luck

need more for astana tho.

5.) 11 Aug 2017 22:53:38
Day one in a Celtic career is judgement day. Hayes needs to step up. He's had lots of game time now.

6.) 11 Aug 2017 23:05:40
Hi lads first time posting 👍

I think some people are forgetting is that is 51 games unbeaten and game is gone now and 3 points in the bag. Astana game will be totally different and perhaps just as tough but then again maybe not. We all just have to get behind the boys on Wednesday night 👌

Hail Hail 💚🍀.

7.) 11 Aug 2017 23:12:14
51 undefeated going for 55 mon the hoops 😏🍀.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 00:26:54
Second game of the season. Win 1-0 and people are calling it 'truly abysmal'. You must be joking. Rested Griffiths, rogic, Armstrong who were obviously main men last season. Go find something genuine to moan about.

{Ed007's Note - Didn't we draw with Thistle at home last season? They seem to be team we either scud or struggle against over the last 6/7 years. It was a poor performance tonight but we came away with the points, it's job done and move onto Wednesday.}

9.) 12 Aug 2017 01:24:35
Well said NT, beggars belief when you read some of the comments after a win to make it 51 domestic games unbeaten. 47 wins 4 draws and you get comments like truly abysmal. Did you support Celtic from 1990-98 Magicpole? A bit of over reaction tonight I think a, " not at our best" would of done.

10.) 12 Aug 2017 07:24:07
We beat them 1-0 just before Christmas and it was a struggle it was my wee boys first game and I remember Thistle actually tried to play football it's 3 points all the same.

11.) 12 Aug 2017 07:39:58
The game should have been finished in the first half just needed the second goal. think we need to calm doen a bit.

12.) 12 Aug 2017 07:50:32
I also think partick will be a decent side this year. Did well last year and looked not bad. I also don't think it was a penalty.

13.) 12 Aug 2017 08:22:09
Abysmal ma erse! If not for their keeper havu g a good night it would have been 3 or 4. Yes we weren't on the top of our game but it's the 3rd game of the season and we are missing key players. Teams who play poorly and still win are only called one thing. champions. get a grip and support the bhoys. IBWT Hail Hail.

14.) 12 Aug 2017 09:23:01
We were stuttering. Our passing was awful. The balance of the team and fluency has dipped. We are going into the two most important games of the season hoping to have at least one striker fit and a midfielder playing at CB. We were told we would have players in and settled to go ahead in these games.

With last seasons team these games wouldn't worry me in the slightest, but we don't. Ntcham looks good, but his final ball last night was nowhere. He needs time, unfortunately we have used it all up and have five days to get it right.

Need this morning we are looking at a striker and CB with jess than a week to go. I'm sorry, but if anybody thinks that's good management I cannot agree.

Hopefully last night was a reaction to the nerves about Wednesday. That griff makes it and my team for Wedbesday would be.

Lustig Simo, Bitton, KT
Armstrong, Brown, Rogic, Ntcham
Sinclair Griff.

It won't be that, but that's how I would go.

15.) 12 Aug 2017 10:22:56
Magic the first half was fine one way traffic gordon could have sat with me if we'd scored the second the games by second half was poor agreed but the pen incident aside we were comfortable.

16.) 12 Aug 2017 10:28:06
It's plainly obvious where we are having problems. The only worry is the lack of any urgency to find solutions. Said in past, if CL money is such an important revenue stream, our lacklustre approach to getting it baffles me.

17.) 12 Aug 2017 12:29:27
i think it's clear at least it is to me that sinky needs a striker in the team to function in his natural way. He doesn't do what he does best when he doesn't have a focal point to his play. A 3rd striker is a must if Rodgers doesn't trust aitcheson. Surely there must be a player we could get on a six month loan to fill in till the moose is back in full flow. Griffiths was never going to be risked if not needed, but 1-0 is dodgy against anyone.

18.) 12 Aug 2017 12:30:51
When all is said and done a win is a win no matter who we play.

19.) 12 Aug 2017 12:32:23
" day one in your Celtic career is judgment day " just as well no one told henke Larsson that eh you nugget.

I would start the same team who played against Hearts. Moussa needs support. We need Kouassi in there to dig in and try to nullify their midfield threat.

At the back, it’s a toss up of a variation of players we are not fully confident can defend to a level we need. I think Rogers will put in Hendry, it would be a strange one if even he didn’t think he could cut it as his only cb signing who can actually play.

Hopefully if he does, he repays what Rogers saw in him. He has to because we need at least a point in this tie or we go into the cl qualifiers with the prospect of being drawn against a seeded team.

If the defence sells the jerseys this tie, and only those in possession of the thickest green specs don’t think that is a real possibility, then the responsibility is wholly Rogers for being in this position after four transfer windows squandered to sort it.

A combination of loss of form, injuries and the same vulnerable defence mean we go into this tie in probably the worst shape we have been since Rogers took over.

I can’t see him playing Charlie from the start, as he will need time to find his feet as he has been ineffective so far. We need at least a point and I will be happy if we achieve that as a first step. Play the way we can and I would be confident of that, but we haven’t played that way often enough. Hopefully this could be the game to return to and maintain our form for the rest of the season. Conversely, if we get taken to the cleaners, it will dent confidence even more and sets up a nervy run in to secure another Treble.

To be in a position where Aberdeen and Sevco genuinely believe they have a chance of beating us at their maddens shows us clearly how poor we have been. We should be out of sight of them with the resources at our disposal. What gives them real hope is the undeniable fact our defence can be got at. Couple this with us stalling mid to front and you can see if our form continues they are right. They do have a chance, two pish teams fancying their chances says everything about how we have stalled yet again in true Celtic fashion.

Rangers have improved, they are still on paper nowhere near us, but games aren’t won on paper and our players need a rocket up their arse to let them know that. It’s time they stood up and played the way they can. The sideways and back pattern of play is down to players having no confidence to beat a man and run at defences with speed and good passing. Against Hearts we saw this in spades. We need it back on Thursday. Then every game after that.

Can’t see Mc Cann being part of a master plan to get Caulker to us. That’s just a non starter. We could have matched what Dundee are paying him and this would have been a punt worth taking for me.

To see a situation whereby Rogers tells him to go to Dundee and McCann playing along is up there with the 9/ 11 inside job pish as conspiracies go.

If he does turn it on I hope he has only signed for six months and we don’t have to pay good money to that wee person. If he’s still in a job after relegation that is.

I had absolu convinced myself we would get players of quality in the help the defence. To be honest I’m more pissed off at myself for believing.

As I said though, we play with the same tenacity and skill we showed against Hearts we have a chance. I just know that we could have been better prepared and another opportunity has been missed. The news about perhaps meeting a seeded team if we fail to get a point just out the tin hat on my frustration.

I have learned a lesson though. Nothing changes no matter who is in charge. That shocked me.

It’s all about how we take them on. If Musonda can turn it on and we manage to get out of the neutral we got stuck in on Saturday then we have a chance of a draw.

I don’t know where the confidence is supposed to come from as we have been mostly poor this season. The defence is always our Achilles heel and I think we have done feck all to improve it. Hendry wouldn’t get in before Boyata on his Saturday performance where he exhibited bombscare tendencies too.

Going for the cheapskate option once again leaves us no better than we started defensively wise. Which is criminal and potentially our undoing. Who knew the board would baulk at spending money on quality? I actually believed they would for once do it right.

Never again, a board of cheapskate spivs till the end.

Well, we really tooled up to give it a go in the window. Didn’t we? To save a few bob we have jeopardised up to £40m.

A draw at least in the home leg should have been the goal. I don’t think we improved the defence at all and with injuries, could be worse than the formation who were found wanting in the cl.

If we fail to get the one draw and lose out on qualification, we will, yet again, have shot ourselves in the head.

We need to refind the form against Hearts, if we do I think we can get the point we need. It will be harder than it should have been, but, we are all used to that by now.

If we take care of becoming a team that can qualify and play well in the cl group stages, then the spfl will be an even easier proposition than it was last season. Euro success guarantees home domination. If we can cope there we are miles ahead.

Any figure you see, apart from coming from Celtic, is a figment of someone’s imagination. Taximan talk.

Rangers are rubbish. A bit better than the utter rubbish they were, but still rubbish. I have absolutely no worries about extending the gap and beating them at Ibrox and at home. The same for Aberdeen. Rogers will focus the top team to start giving teams hefty tankings.

Sunday was just too many changes and relying on too many players out of form or back from injuries. The fact we created next to nothing confirms this. Those players should have had more than enough to deal with a team of journeymen.

It was a reminder that if we don't focus we can drop points. Two draws at home with St J just isn't good enough. We need to play in the same way we did against Zenit. If we do then no one can or will get near us.

Let them delude themselves. They are in a league of their own on that score. Their pain will only be made more acute when reality calls. I will enjoy that very much. It's coming.

Too many changes and a few of the changes can’t cut it. That was clear in a piss poor show. I wish he would give the team a run without so many changes. Got it spot on last Thursday, totally blew it today. 7 changes is just nuts and cost us two points. Poor poor show.

I asked a mate who works out there and he said the Drunken Leprechaun might be showing it. Good luck.
