After comparing McKay with Hazard i'm sure it's only a matter of time before we're told that Windass is a better tackler than Tierney.

I would just like to be the first to congratulate "The Rangers" on this momentous occasion of three in a row against the cream of the highlands. I'm sure that after the disappointment of the non appointment of a manager they will feel much better tonight. Another couple of victories and I have no doubt Mourinho and guardiola will be applying for the vacant managerial post and the going for 55 campaign will be in full flow once again.

its a huge achievement getting a 3 game unbeaten run.

With such a tough league and with injuries, media bias, referee bias and all the other stuff - it really puts it into perspective.

So if 3 is good. 67 is .

They even won this one without tapping-up the opposition manager.

if you had the money, would you buy them out, mess them around and try to get them closed down?




again, Mr Green and Mr Whyte?

What happened last night made me think of events before i was born and which resulted in my father becoming a Celtic fanatic and consequently passing the faith to me,
"During their time in competition, Celtic had won the Irish League fourteen times, the Irish Cup eight times, the City Cup Winners ten times and the Gold Cup seven times. The Belfast Celtic team was the pride of Irish football until it was forced out of competition after the dramatic game against Belfast rivals Linfield on Boxing Day 1948.
The Celtic team had to run from the pitch for their lives when Linfield fans poured over the terrace barriers at the end of a 1 - 1 draw. Centre forward Jimmy Jones was thrown over a parapet, kicked unconscious and left with a broken leg. Defender Robin Lawler and goalkeeper Kevin Mc Alinden were also seriously hurt. At a meeting, the same night Celtic's directors decided to withdraw from football once the season' commitments had been fulfilled"

Should it be considered a sign of improvement that linfield supporters only throw bottles and don't invade the pitch breaking legs?
Should we not thank them for their phenomenal restraint in only throwing bottles in the face of such provocation ( noone can deny that griffiths was wearing the famous green and white hoops- a red rag to a bull) ?
In the almost 70 years that have passed since Linfield forced Celtic out of the league their behavior has dramatically improved and Griffiths should thank his lucky stars for that. I just regret i will not live long enough to see them throw flowers onto the pitch.

Only way you ever see flowers thrown onto the park there is if Tim Flowers signs for us.

UEFA should kick Binfield out the competition. They are an embarrassment to all decent football fans. I love Celtic but I would not throw missiles of any kind at opposing players no matter what was going on. The muppets have probably got something planned for Celtic Park. We don't need their kind in important football competitions. Mon the Hoops!


3.) 15 Jul 2017 14:37:43
Celtic should ban their fans coming to celtic park.


4.) 15 Jul 2017 16:48:18
Wasn't that long ago a Scottish referee had blood pouring down his face when a Celtic fan hit him with an object during a game at Celtic park. EVERY team has those types of fans - even Celtic.

{Ed007's Note - That was 1999, 18 years ago - and you're saying that's not long ago! There's people on here that weren't even born when that happened. This is just pathetic whataboutery at it's very worst.}

The only possibility of getting the jelly and ice cream before it's liquidated would be to order it in Brazilian from Amazon Prime next day delivery. Was with Benny just before Christmas and he is looking really well all things considered and as for Frankie he thanks you for your kind regards but is still a little saddened by the fact that Scotland didn't vote for independence. He was saying to me if only you had voted independence UJ would have to change his name to "The man with no name" as without the union there would be no union jack.

Uj I would be very surprised if you translated me as I wrote in Italian and not Brazilian. I was just saying that I have lived in Rome since 1990 and I was very grateful to UJ for keeping me up to date with what's in The Italian newspapers. You don't by any chance call your mate Mike Wazowski?

io abito a Roma e sono veramente grato a UJ per questo informazione perché non ho letto i giornali questa settemana. Ma come sto qui da 1990 e ho tantissimi amici che sanno che sono un tifoso di Celtic sono un po' arrabbiato che nessuno di loro mi aveva detto qualcosa, incluso un buon amico, tifoso di Milan.

Sometimes I wonder is it really for to improve our team that we buy certain players or is it to weaken the opposition. I think of how buying Ciftci, Mckay Steven and Armstrong decimated Dundee Utd and only Armstrong made an impact with us. I liked Scott Allen when he played at hibs and we bought him and he did nothing. I think we need players who will strengthen our starting eleven so unless we're going to offload midfielders or McGinn is so much better than we have already what's the point in buying him or would he want to come here to be a squad player like happened to Jonny Hayes. Forgive the rant but I get frustrated at times with a buy buy buy mentality and i would only buy to improve us as there is no point in winning by weakening the opposition as we will only go backwards in europe if we don't strengthen.

in total agreement LH. I can't get my head around all these figures as I'm still in awe of how much we got for Dalglish or how much we paid for Moravcik or Larson. you could get a full squad for 20-30 million. The only thing that helps me understand that we could get 20-30 million for Dembele is the fact that Morelos of the dead is valued at 10 million.

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.

@ 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.

The death of a loved one is never easy. Will remember your aunt and the whole family circle tomorrow in my prayers. May the Lord grant you all his consolation at this time.

@ed007
When I said let he without sin cast the first stone I wasn't being critical of Timalloy, nor was I judging him. The quote was directed s much at myself as to anyone else as I believe we are all sinners and should accuse ourselves not others. How can I be entitled to cast stones at someone for breaking the law just because I haven't broken that particular law, even if i have broken many other laws. It would be a bit hypocritical don't you think? . I don't believe any of us will change unless we recognize the need to change and in that sense Griffiths needs to mature, he has to recognize that he has a problem and seek help. He doesn't have to be strong willed etc he just has to recognize his weakness and trust in the Lord. I hope he gets it sorted forhimself but also for his kids sake.

{Ed007's Note - I don't buy into all that 'he needs to get help' pish either, DJ it's just an excuse wheeled out when famous folk get caught nipping about. Oh so and so needs to get treated for sex addiction! Try telling that to a woman from Fairhill - they'll treat it by cutting of your banger when you're sleeping and show her pals how wee it is on Facebook while you're on the phone to your mam in the background screaming and covered in blood!}
