Is reported that Tierney is recovering from hernia operation, I thought he was supposed to need a hip operation, has he had that yet?


1.) 25 Jun 2019 17:05:35
He didn't need a hip operation apparently that was just a rumour am sure he spoke about it on Celtic tv a wee while ago.

2.) 25 Jun 2019 17:29:53
He had a DOUBLE Hernia op.

3.) 25 Jun 2019 17:42:56
Ok, thanks.

You been over on the Rangers site, not one of them has a clue what they're talking about aindoh. It appears the injury is a hernia - as KT had stated. Not his hip (bones) , its a muscle that's weak across that region.

I "suspect" a inguinal hernia, common in sports, over use or excessive weight lifting on the muscle, without an appropriate warm up or recovery period can put strain over a weak part of the muscle and cause herniation.

This is a guy that the club values at £25million (I would say the best player to put a celtic strip on since the likes of Larsson) .

He'd have been treated with top specialist surgeons for this procedure. He'd have the best recovery programme developed alongside the surgeon, a world class physio who deals in hernia injury. Then all that information passed to club doctor, physio and sports science and rehab team.

Trust me KT will have the best chance of a 100% recovery from this injury long term. I just suspect he won't be with us long term.

But for 25 plus the add ons, I'd say long term for our club would be good business.

Patrick Roberts is a good winger, but not a great winger, he is a good dribbler, but I feel like the younger ones watch him and are mesmerized, because they are not used to someone holding onto the ball and going past three or four opponents, there are better players out there, this new about to be signing, will probably make all the Roberts groupies take down the pictures of Patrick they have up on their bedroom walls.


1.) 27 Jan 2019 09:55:30
Harry Wilson is better than Roberts some signing he would've been.

2.) 27 Jan 2019 10:35:55
Bit harsh on paddy i would say, he was lighting up la liga with his last few performances before he got injured, i think people are used to seeing players beat 2 or 3 men but he had the final product as well something that players like mcgeady always struggled with, hopefully shved is up to paddy standards because if he is were in for a treat.

Think Naismith will have a mysterious drop in form tomorrow.


1.) 06 Oct 2018 18:20:40
Hope so, hearts are well infront of us☘HH.

2.) 06 Oct 2018 19:29:17
Tell me, is that a player match fixing?

You would think there was enough match fixing with the refs and linesmen dishonest mistakes.

One of the TRFC goals against Rapid Vienna minnows was offside the other night. BTSport neglected to put the line up on screen.

Anyway, Celtic sit fifth with a game in hand tomorrow at 10.30am.

TRFC have dropped to seventh today and are now playing decent competition. They are worse than they were last year but it feels better because Celtic aren’t top. 🤣.

3.) 07 Oct 2018 14:49:58
Wasn't he in his on half.



20 Nov 2017 08:39:40
When you think about it the Celtic team that won in Lisbon, had maybe two world class players in Jimmy Johnstone and Bobby Murdoch, and then 4 international class players and then the rest were good honest journeyman guys that you could rely on to do their job, but they had a manager, that they believed in, that they respected and they would follow his instructions, that inter Milan team were full of the Neymars and the Messis of the time, but Celtic out psyched them, out thought them and out played them.

PSG are nowhere as good as Inter were, and Celtic are nowhere as good as the Lisbon guys, but the thing is, if PSG play to their maximum and Celtic play to their best and throw away their inhibitions, PSG are there for the taking, pride comes before a fall, and they are so full of themselves, they are going to fall a long way.


1.) 20 Nov 2017 09:07:01
Sorry aindoh but if psg play in 3rd or 4th gear they will still beat us comfortably. If they are at their best then it'll be damage limitation for us. We need to play out of our skin and hope they don't turn up to get anything.
I think it's crazy to try and compare this match to our finest hour. This psg team are full of super talented footballers whereas that inter team were full of defensive minded footballers with the mindset of winning every game 1-0. 2 completely different teams.
Also it's wrong to compare both eras matches as there is a far greater gap between Celtic and psg now than Celtic and inter in 67.

2.) 20 Nov 2017 17:11:47
If PSG play to their best we’ve got no chance aindoh. Unfortunate but true.

3.) 20 Nov 2017 18:27:51
Aindoh you are talking about a team that won THE most coveted club trophy in world football.
Threfore I would suggest they were ALL world class, and for me the teams of yesteryear have no chance against the super teams of now, football has changed dramatically.

4.) 20 Nov 2017 19:14:56
Rayman although football has changed imo it's fitness and conditioning that's different . give that lions the access to the facilities and sports science of today and their class and ability would tell in any league or competition.

5.) 21 Nov 2017 13:02:14
aindoh you are dreaming.
We are so far behind them it almost doesn't matter how good we play in a one off game and how badly they play, we'll still lose on Wednesday. For us to get anything from the game will need something close to a miracle, and yes miracles can happen but they are few and far between that's why they're called miracles! lol HH.

6.) 21 Nov 2017 21:22:31
it wasn't naymar
it wasn't Mbop
it wasn't cavani
it wasn't di maria (wasn't playing)
it wasn't ben arfa
it wasn't draxler
it wasn't alves
it wasn't silva

I tuned in knowing all these players.

they had no week links anywhere, every position has practically the best player they can afford (which is anyone)

I was blown away by Rabiot and I had no clue who he was.

I am seriously not up on European football but even this "unknown" was world class.

I agree heart etc can win games, but these guys at half speed could win the cl.

7.) 21 Nov 2017 23:05:02
Can't see anything other than 90 mins of torture the moro night, can't say I enjoy watching us against those super rich multi billionaire funded clubs. Looking forward to a bit of a breather in the Europa and hopefully a wee run. On the upside lads when sitting through the torture the moro night just think that's how Sevconians feel when they play us.

8.) 22 Nov 2017 00:36:06
When I was a young lad my old man used to get a cabbie called Jim to drive myself and my brothers home to my mums some Sundays. Great auld boy, he talked endlessly about celtic and he had an old clapped out cavalier that other drivers marveled at the miles he got out of it. anyway he said there was lads at that time that turned down professional football contracts for danger money down the pitts.
That one statement says it all. No matter how good our team could of been in the last 10/ 15 years if players stayed, the point is that the lisbon team with today's money would of been dismantled and our history wouldn't exist. Psg are pretty much one of those game console/ current times dream teams. Keep the score down. Play negative and go toe to toe with anderlecht when the time comes.

9.) 22 Nov 2017 14:10:24
Self delusion is sometimes a good thing. Why would rangers fans stick to it so passionately?

I am looking to us to put up a better show like they did against Bayern. That is all we can ask.

If they fire on all cylinders and we freeze it will be a pummelling.

If we step up and fight and play, we will still lose but by feck I will be proud. This mob will win it imo.

Get stuck in Celtic and believe in your ability.

We do.

10.) 24 Nov 2017 09:39:33
PSG are nowhere near Inter? Are you having a laugh? PSG would destroy Inter.

The Green tinted specs are strong in this one. :)

Nostalgia can be guilty of creating false realities. That teams back in the distant past would beat the very best now. They wouldn't.

Even with fitness levels they couldn't compete. Teams like Barca, PSG and a few others would run any of the great teams of the past ragged.

I have been impressed with Ajeti, I think, once LG is fit, we should go to a 433 system, with Ajeti and Edouard and Griffs as the front three,


1.) 19 Sep 2020 22:17:31
Brown in the middle of the midfield three aindoh aye haha? 👀.

2.) 19 Sep 2020 22:57:07
Griffiths can go do one - waste of a jersey.



19 Sep 2020 16:58:03
Ajer is a mistake just waiting to happen, he shouldn't be anywhere near central defence, think right back is his best position, but he isn't as good as Elhamed, so he shouldn't really be getting a game at the minute, definitely need another proper central defender.


1.) 19 Sep 2020 17:25:29
Apparently he's good enough for AC Milan, so we may need replacement?

2.) 19 Sep 2020 17:32:39
Maybe AC Milan need a right back.

3.) 19 Sep 2020 17:51:59
14 million and run for the hills .



07 Sep 2020 10:30:30
Just reading about that English player scuffing the penalty spot, I think that is disgraceful, if that guy ever plays for England again, it would be a sad reflection on the state of the English game, I hope the FA ban him sin die.


1.) 07 Sep 2020 11:35:00
Ward-Prowse it was, Roy Keane was raging because Ian Wright praised him for it.

2.) 07 Sep 2020 15:08:49
Then afterwards two players broke CV regulations and are being sent home. Will they be charged with bringing the game into disrepute, with calls for England to be docked points? Naaaahhh.

3.) 07 Sep 2020 17:21:51
Imagine what Wright and the rest of the slabbering English pundits would say if it was the other way around!

4.) 07 Sep 2020 18:57:30
It was just a bit of "Housery and Devilment"
Says Wright.
Wasn't Housery or Devilment when Maradona punched the ball into the net then?



02 Sep 2020 23:16:29
Can someone explain to me what are the advantages of a back three?, I just don't get it, I know it is probably in one of those books that Ronnie used to read, I think it was called 'Football for Dummies', the one he was most into, but I don't see how a back three trump's an old fashioned back four,


1.) 03 Sep 2020 03:45:25
It was obviously a big gamble last season that paid off.
The biggest advantage for me would be results.
The 3-5-2 played a big part on why Celtic won 24 out of 25 domestic games last season and it’s a glove that seems to fit for us.
The Motherwell manager mentioned the difference on Sunday was Celtic changing to a 3-5-2 formation.
I also think it helps McGregor get further forward with his intelligent runs,
with the security of another defender filling his space as he moves up the park.
I also think we attack in big numbers but also try to defend in big numbers better.
Another big plus is we get players much closer to Edouard for his trademark touch and turn. There is nothing worse than watching Edouard with not another Celtic player anywhere near him, similar to what happened away to Kilmarnock.
Give Edouard the proper support and he will move through the gears.

2.) 03 Sep 2020 08:22:31
A lot of teams that play against us 'flood' the middle of the park by playing a 4-5-1 (or even 4-6-0) and stifling the midfield.
As long as we have the right personnel - 3-5-2 gives us more width and that extra player, with more attacking options; it suits teams like us that are good at keeping possession as team-mates are closer together. Plus we have the capacity to have a 5 man back-line if we have to defend or a 3-4 man attack on the break.
On the down-side defending with three can be vulnerable to quick counter attacks, so the 'back three' have to be athletic, agile and have developed a very good positional understanding.
It also gives us two up front, with opponents reluctant to go man-for- man, it creates gaps for attacking from middle to front.
I think the bottom line is whatever formations you choose, the most important thing is having the best players in their best position and hope they all do their jobs?

3.) 03 Sep 2020 08:26:02
There no advantage to any system if it’s set in stone and you’re opponent can counter it. That’s why you need a coach who can read the game and adapt to what is happening at any given time.
I’ve never understood zonal marking where a six foot defender get beaten by a small attacker who has a run up and momentum. Used to dread watching us use that as it always cost goals. Hopefully intelligent managers can adapt as required.

4.) 03 Sep 2020 11:44:47
It depends also a lot on how secure and proactive the back three are. If you've 3 dummies then it's obviously not going to work. I've been reading Celic are still enquiring about Omar Colley, so having him and Shane Duffy in the back 3 will give the midfielders more security to do what they do.

5.) 03 Sep 2020 11:46:39
More width.

6.) 03 Sep 2020 18:27:05
thats what she said mally.

7.) 03 Sep 2020 22:05:44
I still don't see the point of it, a back four, with two good mobile fullbacks is way more stable than a back three, which is vulnerable to quick side to side counter attacks,



27 Aug 2020 10:01:12
People say Soro isn't good enough, people said Koubassi wasn't good enough, it goes on, no midfielder is good enough, who plays the same position as Scott Brown, because they will never get a chance to play as he will never be dropped.


1.) 27 Aug 2020 10:35:06
I don’t think Kouassi or Soro are good enough to play in front of 35 year old Brown.
But I do think on his performances this season that McGregor, Christie and Ntcham should be our first choice midfield.

2.) 27 Aug 2020 11:10:47
thing with brown is he brings a lot to the team we do not see he is that leader that every squad needs regardless of age i think he should be dropped a few games here and there and subbed at times to bring fresher legs on but not dropped completly.

3.) 27 Aug 2020 11:55:02
But that's part of the problem, he is the leader, and on the plus side he brings that to the team, but on the negative side, he is detrimental to the midfield and holds back the whole team, I hope we sign Turnbull, and he goes straight into the side, but if Brown is still in the midfield, he won't make much difference.

He is playing the same team, because he said in the paper this morning, that if he had to play Wednesdays game again, under the same circumstances, he would pick the same team again, or words to that affect, so he has to play the same team today, or he would look stupid, but I think he looks more stupid, because if he had played the team that finished today's game at the start of Wednesday's game there would have been a different result.

Too good for us, most ridiculous statement I have ever heard. He is good enough, it's the ones that aren't good enough, that are the problem, the ones with the wrong attitudes, the wrong ambitions even if they have the right skills, the Celtic management underestimated Ferencvaros the other night, they are a decent side, on the way up, somebody on here made a remark about how bad it was getting beat by a Hungarian side, Hungary used to have very good sides, maybe their time is coming again. Having thought about it, the only one to blame for Wednesday night defeat is Lenny, he got the team selection wrong, he got the tactics wrong, much the same as he got them wrong against Cluj, Copenhagen and The rangers, I have been saying for the last year or more there is something not right about the midfield, but because we won the league cup, and went 13 PTS clear in the league, everybody glossed over it, but other opposition managers could notice aswell, and they exploited it and pressed up because they knew we couldn't handle it,

Why pay him so much?, give him the same as Julien or Ajer are on, or tell him to jog on, he is not an outstanding centre back, if he can't get in the Brighton first team regularly, if he wants to come here, tell him to take a wage cut, . We are getting too strung up on this ten in a row, talking about bringing in shameless mercenaries, without progress in Europe, ten in a row is meaningless, bring in some young talented centre back with potential, develop him, progress the team, to become a European level teamm, forget ten in a row, make the goal European achievement.

I can't remember the analogy am thinking off, buts it's something like that Steve McQueen joke, from the Great Escape, "so far, so good ", or maybe we are like a canoeist, paddling desperately against the current, as the current drags us nearer to the waterfall, pretending to ourselves that we are doing alright and not noticing that the waterfall is getting closer all the time.
The team selection is wrong, the team tactics are wrong, this is beginning to remind me of one of the seasons we endured under our greatest ever manager, praise him, praise him, but of course, we won the league that season.

If Brown is dropped the earth will stop spinning on its axis, the mountains will fall into the sea, the oceans will rise and flood the lowlands, the volcanoes will erupt and fill the air with ash, turning night into day, .
It would be madness to drop Brown.

Still don't see the point of playing three at the back, it seems to introduce a nervousness that permeates its way through the whole side, why not go back to basics and play a settled and regular back four, concentrate on getting the defence sorted,352 is meant to be more attacking, think someone said, but I think it's madness, . When a team like Ross County can hit the woodwork more than once and bring out good saves in Barkas, it only highlights the insanity of persisting with a system that any half decent team will tear apart.
