Let's not forget, still unbeaten this season, another point towards our title and Sevco celebrating a draw against our worst performance this season. I'd much rather give them some hope in this game rather than the Semi Final. Chalk this down to experience, get the league won and hammer these imposters in the SC. MTH!

We've all got our banter towards Rangers supporters but I for one wish the Rangers supporters who have been involved in their serious bus crash a speedy recovery.

Agreed buddy. Banters banter but that's clearly serious. Get well soon lads.

It's been reported one man died RIP 🙏.

{Ed007's Note - That's awful news that, such a tragedy.}

4.) 01 Oct 2016 17:58:04
Just saw that as well, condolences to the man's family.

5.) 01 Oct 2016 18:06:58
So sorry to all involved in that accident and my thoughts and prayers for the person that died and all his family and friends.

6.) 01 Oct 2016 18:22:30
Horrible news.

7.) 01 Oct 2016 18:23:27
It's horrendous news. Prayers and sincerest condolences to all directly involved and family and friends affected.

To the injured, best wishes for a speedy recovery.

8.) 01 Oct 2016 19:00:57
Really sad news thoughts and prayers with all them and dead person's family.

9.) 01 Oct 2016 19:02:43
puts it all into perspective.

my thoughts are with all involved.

10.) 01 Oct 2016 19:21:44
Not seen anything about this, horrific. Thoughts with all affected.

11.) 01 Oct 2016 20:03:25
My thoughts and prayers go to everyone involved in this terrible accident, my condolences go to the bereaved mans family, and my best wishes go to those who have been injured.
I hope they all make a full recovery.

12.) 01 Oct 2016 20:27:29
hi ed and celtic supporters just want to say thanks for all the messages of support for the family of the fan who sadly passed away today after a rangers supporters bus crashed. it is good to have banter and digs at each other. but football is only a game and it is at times like this when both sets of fans come together in support.


13.) 01 Oct 2016 20:43:44
Someone went to a football game and didn't come back. Terrible loss to the family. Hope everyone else involved isn't seriously injured. Truly tragic.

14.) 01 Oct 2016 22:22:18
Thoughts and prayers go out to the guys family , we lost a much loved uncle in a crash on his way back from a Celtic game nearly 27 years ago to the day, takes the family a long long time to get over it, still looked up and asked him if he enjoyed that after the last old firm game .

15.) 02 Oct 2016 07:34:02
Have to say as much as any of us love our team to the core it's not worth a life, hatred in football is fine when it only applies to football, once it leaves the sport it becomes something else. All supporters of all teams world wide should make it home after watching their team. I just hope the other injured now make a full recovery and any Celtic fans seen or heard trying to use this tragedy for point scoring or to add fuel to the hate fire are swiftly dealt with by and and club.

16.) 02 Oct 2016 10:12:14
Fabadabadoo sorry to hear your families loss in tragic circumstances. Never easy mate.

17.) 02 Oct 2016 12:00:55
Thank you dn30.

Re the goalkeeper's position, according to my data Fasan is out of contract at the end of this season. Bailly, DeVries AND Gordon are all out of contract at the end of the next season. So is BR assessing who we've got to either cherrypick who's there and keep the best one and bring in a couple of others? Or will there be a clearout and new ones brought in?



1.) 30 Sep 2016 17:15:50
I don't know, but I expect Brendan Rodgers to do the right thing.

2.) 30 Sep 2016 18:03:16
Not sure buying Devries was the right thing, there was one or two at the euros, that might have been a better option, this sweeper keeper thingy sounds abit like a jack of all trades and master of none.

3.) 30 Sep 2016 18:04:02
I think you are all missing a very concerning point. With Toure out of contract at the end of the season and a number of players out of contract in the next two years. There maybe a plan from BR to leave at the end of next season to move on after two years with his reputation enhanced a number of trophys in his cabinet. If he does well in Europe he may get a big job in the EPL with a much greater budget.

4.) 30 Sep 2016 18:23:52
Players out of contract over the next two seasons:

Brandon Payne
Kolo Toure
Connor McManus
Josh Kerr
Efe Ambrose
Emilio Izaguirre
Eoghan O'Connell
Kris Commons
Leo Fasan

Dorus de Vries
Craig Gordon
Logan Bailly
Liam Henderson
Mikael Lustig
Sctt Brown
Stuart Armstrong

Don't think there're many in that lot which would give BR sleepless nights if they leave


5.) 30 Sep 2016 20:28:24
Let's get this season and all it offers before we start to speculate on who will stay or go. What's happening this season is well beyond my expectations and the value for money watching this BR team and last year is well worth it. Go with the flow Bhoys and Ghirls.

6.) 30 Sep 2016 22:18:23

lets just be happy that (a) he is here (b) he is building ( c) he is giving us a product to be proud of

he won't be here forever
he isn't cynically plotting an exit at our expense

we are always in a state of flux. let's soak it up…two domestic defeats and we'll be chasing him away to swansea!

7.) 30 Sep 2016 22:22:46
Your right stengo i think there's actually a couple he will be desperate to get rid off, efe and commons probs on his hit list.

8.) 01 Oct 2016 04:58:42
Hopefully new keepers. Fasan needs a season on loan.

9.) 01 Oct 2016 04:58:42
Hopefully new keepers. Fasan needs a season on loan.

10.) 02 Oct 2016 00:59:05
I am not sure he will be desperate to get rid of Ambrose . He won't play Ambrose again but I don't think Ambrose will create any problems for him or the squad . Commons on the other hand could turn the nasty face at any time . Maybe Clifti too, troublemakers need to be moved as quickly as possible.



02 Sep 2016 17:33:38
When do we find out the 25 named players or don't we?



1.) 02 Sep 2016 21:41:52
Apparently we just named a 24 man squad. why would that be?



01 Sep 2016 18:17:14
Would Efe not do a job for us as a DM? He's fast and strong and was bought as a defender who could also play in midfield. We all know the damage he can do in his own box so imagine the havoc he can cause in the opposition's and the oppportunities he can make.



1.) 01 Sep 2016 18:49:33
I'd say yes. Although I'd love to see Henderson given a chance as well.

2.) 01 Sep 2016 19:01:16
His distribution is not good enough to play there.

3.) 01 Sep 2016 19:05:46
Love it Stengo. lol

'We all know the damage he can do in his own box so imagine the havoc he can cause in the opposition's'


4.) 01 Sep 2016 19:06:00
Got a point lol.

5.) 01 Sep 2016 19:10:42
Hi Stengo-welcome to the site. I also think our man Efe could possibly play in midfield. I would just never make him my last man as his decision making is horrendous.

6.) 01 Sep 2016 19:14:00
distrubution not good enough? not any worse than scot browns also he can win a header unlike brown and bitton he was a dm for ashdod or whatever they are called but i doubt it matters he won't get a chance in any position with some of our support.

7.) 01 Sep 2016 20:03:37
Jesus. The guy isn't not good enough for any position. Why are people trying to shoehorn him back it the team when writing have managed to get him out it?

8.) 01 Sep 2016 20:06:50
would he not take the role as janitor hahaha nah that's harsh but your right he needs a role and if he's able to play midfield without any scares then i think it should be considered, we can't seem to let him go and we can't let him stay with a wage and not do anything, or he might just be used in easy games.

9.) 01 Sep 2016 20:07:37
Bang on kev.

10.) 01 Sep 2016 20:14:02
I think now that the transfer window has closed and we failed to address the soft non-tackling, non-tracking midfield, we should be looking at all possibilities with the players we are left with.
I am in no doubt that BR would like more- better players in and get rid of a few he inherited, but we are stuck with this squad until January and considering, we are involved in every tournament available, we have to utilize every player and try new ideas?

11.) 01 Sep 2016 20:14:24
So Scott browns passing is no better than ambroses, if you believe that, you know jack rubbish about football and I'm not wasting my time with you.

12.) 01 Sep 2016 20:24:45
Surely he's worth a try in that position in the reserves to see what he's like.

13.) 01 Sep 2016 20:53:47
fabadabbydoo so scot brown is known for his passing is he have a word with yourself brown's passing is average at best.

14.) 01 Sep 2016 21:39:00
Brown gives the ball away far too often and his ball control is questionable at times. HH.

15.) 01 Sep 2016 22:19:58
Now your just making up conversation's you have had with yourself and putting them into posts bigD, I never said it was the strongest part of browns game, but his passing is still miles better than effes and is very important part of being a central midfielder.

16.) 01 Sep 2016 23:34:23
well fabbi I tried posting some links that prove you wrong but for some reason either the ed didn't get them or just didn't post them site called whoscored . com and for the past few seasons in Europe going back to 12/ 13 season efe ambrose and scot brown have the same pass completion percentage (82.4%) with only a difference of average 10 passes per game between them (brown 46.1 total passes efe 36.2 total) now I don't care if ambrose stays go's or whatever but go check the stats and you will see I'm right.

17.) 02 Sep 2016 01:10:12
You really can't compare a defender passing stats to a midfielders, centre backs most of the time are either playing a simple pass to the other centre back/ full backs or to the goalie it is a large percentage of their game.
Midfielders have to play passes in the busiest part of the field and the killer passes which have a much higher risk to them.

18.) 02 Sep 2016 03:31:17
for the most part in the years I have mentioned scot brown has played a deep midfield spot and I agree to an extent with you but broony does not play killer passes and a lot of his passes are simple 5-10 yard's but this other guy is trying to make out broony is pirlo compared to efe which he most certainly is not also the topic was on dm not cm anyway i would rather play ajer at dm XD.

19.) 02 Sep 2016 04:19:29
How anybody can disagree with rayman there.

20.) 02 Sep 2016 05:03:37
Spot on rayman was just about to post the same thing myself, you know where the saying there are lies, dame lies and statistics comes from now .

21.) 02 Sep 2016 06:29:06
How does saying brown is a better passer than effe, make him pirlo? Your just talking rubbish now, guess we know what the D stands for in bigD, now put your cap back on and go and stand in the corner.

22.) 02 Sep 2016 06:39:21
Stats are important. But comparing a CBs passes to a CMs isn't much use.

Scott Brown plays more forward passes than people might think. Besides there's more to a midfielder's game than passing anyway.

I'd certainly like to see Ajer developed. He can defend and create, he's got a physical/ aerial presence, can move a bit and he's got goals in him.

23.) 02 Sep 2016 09:50:51
Better for him to play there then if he makes a mistake there is people behind him to sweep up the mess. He gets caught out with the long ball that's his biggest downfall so in DM he wouldn't have that worry. I would rather him in the reserves than play at CB.

24.) 02 Sep 2016 09:38:48
scot brown is no better at passing than efe. they have the exact same average successful pass percentage.

25.) 02 Sep 2016 10:44:49
Tbh bhoys regardless of the stats etc I've seen enough of efe and the majority of fans have also.

I get the point about not playing him at the back but what about Gordon?
The guy couldn't catch a cold so should we fire him onto the wing?

The biggest disappointment for me during the transfer window was he didn't leave along with a couple others but efe is the one I wanted rid of most.

26.) 02 Sep 2016 11:36:17
big. D, do centre backs and centre mids play the same sort of passes, in the same sort of situations? You've got to take a huge qualitative look at it not just quantative.

When Efe first signed he played CDM, and looked ok. I've said many a time I'd prefer him at RB to CB too. But thankfully, now, he doesn't get in at RB, CB, or CM. Why people are trying to shoe horn him anywhere in the team is beyond me.

27.) 02 Sep 2016 12:12:58
If you really believe that effe Ambrose is a better midfielder than Scott brown then you are welcome to your opinion , maybe he is also a better striker than Griffiths as well because I remember effe had a shot on target in one game and that left him with a statistic of 100% shots on target and griff had 10 shots but only 6 on target so had only 60% of his shots on target, statistics are funny aren't they .

See Garner's playing today so seat belts on and look out for some form of aggro. That mob are runners and will be into our box like nuclear whippets and falling at the first opportunity so Broony HAS to protect our back 4. They've got kids at the back and they have to stop us getting the treble so I guess there'll be plenty opportunities for Sinclair and Dembele to fill up. Our bench looks strong but their'e doesn't so looks like a nailed on Bhoys win. but hope we;re savvy enough in midfield and the back to nullify any counter attack. Celtic to win 3-1.

Would prefer to see Connor Hazard instead of Doohan as one the keepers. He's just signed a new 2 year deal - I'm not sure what Doohan's current status is. As far as I can see Sam Wardrop, Theo Archibald, Mark Hill and Colin McCabe have still to have their status confirmed.

Also remember who's on loan - a good number of them may be released including the likes of Janko, Scott Allan, Jamie Lindsay and Paul McMullan. That leaves a few youngsters also on loan for development purposes. So all in all there may be a further clearout if some of them fail to take the their opportunities.

If the first team do manage to go the full season without losing a league game, they'll be emulating last season's Development Squad (the Invincibles) who went the full season also not losing a game.

Can't see clubs realeasing players like McCarthy in January, it'll be probably be long forgotten out of favour players with tonnes of experience or youngsters not quite good enough for the English Premiership (or the top Championship teams) . It's also about what bids come in for our players like Dembele and Tierney if we go out of Europe.

I've seen a good number of youngsters over the years trying to break through via the BP Youths, Reserves and now Development Squad and the amount who have reached their peak at that level beggars belief. Out of the current crop I have hope for are Connor Hazard, Sam Wardrop, Joe Thomson, Mark Hill, Calvin Miller and Aiden Nesbitt. I've got my doubts about Jack Aitchison and Tony Ralston but what do I know about youth development that the club's coaches don't see on a day to day basis.

Rab, I can recall the press interview that RD gave in which he said all the players who he signed were "his" players. They would have technically been "his" players if they were in the squad he managed, but I wonder how many times the club has identified a player and went and bought him for potential reward without giving the manager the lowdown on him.

Bhoywonder, it would be great to bring in a massive transfer fee, yet DD has stated that Celtic don't need to sell him. It would be equally great to have a team firing on all cylinders and having one of the most exciting teams in European football with quality players playing in every position, but could our domestic game cope with one club having total domination for years to come?
