Do the powers that be in Scotland have the authority to call the European places and finish the season whenever either later this year or early next year even if that's behind closed doors? It seems a reasonable proposition.


{Ed002's Note - No. The European places need to be determined on merit - so if the season is to be ended, by whatever route, based on that. There is no option to suspend the season and disrupt next season significantly.}

1.) 15 May 2020 14:27:26
Don't know if there is anything to it but was told that due to rangers not submitting accounts then the euro places have overlooked them and as it stands Aberdeen and motherwell will get the places with the cup still to be decided.

2.) 15 May 2020 20:22:51
m1ck, that would be the icing on the cake if it were true! lol HH.

3.) 15 May 2020 21:58:27
How will they manage to play the European preliminary rounds if this situation is ongoing?, can't see there being any European competition football next season, in fact can't see there being a next season.

4.) 17 May 2020 12:09:09
I hope that IF the rumour is true that Sevco haven't submitted proper accounts satisfactory to UEFA rule and on time That the powers that be think twice about putting them forward for a place in next season competition give them another reason for a new statement not that they really need a reason.

5.) 17 May 2020 15:58:58
It'll all be big Pistol Pete's doing if that ever happened 😂.



25 Mar 2020 08:42:23
The talk of players wages and capping them at £2500 per month is very interesting. Why not? Maybe these dark days will make us all reconsider the celebrity culture we have embraced whatever a celebrity is and remind players especially the EPL overpaid Prima Donnas who the real hero's are namely the brave men and women in the NHS who are risking their lives to save yours and mine. Greater love hath no man than he lays down his life for his friends.

I remember wondering 20 years ago when my mother died in hospital and I saw first hand what nurses do why my accountant was being paid £100,000 for looking after my money and nurses where being paid £20,000 for looking after my mother.

Don't think I've ever had an answer to that other than it telling me where society's priorities lie.

Keep them in your prayers.


1.) 25 Mar 2020 13:24:26
It's always the workers who pull through a tough situation. At the end of this mess who will the heroes be? The Billionaire CEOs? Or will it be the Hospital staff, care home workers, bus drivers, shelf stackers and delivery drivers?

2.) 25 Mar 2020 20:09:48
Every now and then we need something to bring us back down to earth.

3.) 26 Mar 2020 14:03:05
I totally agree with what Lou Macari says in today's paper about premier League players digging into their pockets and donating money to the fight against the virus,

4.) 27 Mar 2020 17:25:43
We also need the fans to dig deep for their teams as well as the nhs. I see Stirling Albion raised £20k in 36 hours to help save their club. Fair play.

5.) 29 Mar 2020 00:32:14
I would run through brick walls if I could for 2.5k per week. Once I earned this probably wouldn't the next time lol.

6.) 29 Mar 2020 00:47:07
I think we need to all (the whole world) : rethink things, forget about this ten in a row rubbish, itz meaningless, (that for all these ten in a row obsessed headbangers who think this ten in a row team (potentially) , is better than the Lisbon lions,

This corovirus will go on a long time, and a lot of people we know will die, well I might die and you might die, when my mother was growing up in he west of ireland, she said in every house, in every village, someone would die of TB, the more things change, the more they are the same.

7.) 29 Mar 2020 08:48:23
Cheer up man this thing will peak and life will get back to normal. and 10 iar hopefully will happen it's not pish it's about making history.

8.) 29 Mar 2020 14:47:34
The Lisbon Lions won every honour they entered in ‘67 and that will never be repeated in Scotland. The Lisbon Lions will still go down in our history as our greatest team ever because they brought the big cup home.
This current squad have had a domestic invincible season. They have won a Treble Treble and counting. They will eventually win 10 In A Row and for me personally I will put them up there with the Lisbon Lions because they will eventually be the most successful squad in our history and the most successful that I have witnessed.
If that makes me an obsessive headbanger then so be it.

{Ed007's Note - How can you put the amount of players that will have contributed to the 10 in a row in the same bracket as a team that won a EC?
The current squad don't have a Treble Treble, the current squad doesn't have 8 leagues in a row and the current squad didn't have an invincible season.}

9.) 29 Mar 2020 15:15:08
The Lisbon Lions was only 11 players and they only played one game together after Lisbon against Clyde.
There are plenty of players in that era we class as Lisbon Lions because they all deserve the credit and not only 11 players. They won 9 titles in a row and also reached 20 domestic finals out of 21 In that era.
It’s similar to when I’m referring to the squad of players who have contributed to our most successful period in our history.
I am not taking anything away from the Lisbon Lions, far from it. I am only giving praise to all the players who have got us to where we are.

{Ed007's Note - If the Lisbon Lions won 9 titles in a row why does Bertie Auld only have 6 Championship medals? So who are the plenty of players that are classed as Lisbon Lions who didn't win the EC because I've never heard that in my life before.}

10.) 29 Mar 2020 15:41:24
There are players who have medals who never played in Lisbon.
They went to all the reunions John Hughes, Joe McBride and Wullie O Neill showed me his own medal when he worked in Bairds.

{Ed007's Note - And Charlie Gallacher played in a couple of games as well so they were part of the squad that season. Who are theses plenty of players in that era that are classed as Lions, are you seriously saying that there are players out there that weren't at Celtic in season 66/67 that are classed as Lisbon Lions by people?}

11.) 29 Mar 2020 16:05:14
Okay Ed. I liked to call the 9 in a row legends the Lisbon lions because it was before my time although I clearly knew that wasn’t the case but I gave them a label because of that great achievement.
My grandkids will look at someone like Forrest who will win the full 10 titles the same way as Christie who didn’t win the full 10.The same as I look at Auld who only won 6 titles the same as I look at Billy McNeill who won the full 9 titles.
It’s not a big deal.

{Ed007's Note - The original nine in a row has absolutely nothing to do with the Lisbon Lions apart from some of them were part of both achievements - it's not a matter of opinion.}

12.) 29 Mar 2020 16:27:53
I can see why calling other players Lisbon Lions would annoy some people because it is not true. I didn’t think it was a big deal but from now on I will only refer to the Lisbon Lions as the players mentioned above plus the guys who played in Lisbon. 👍.

{Ed007's Note - It's not annoying, it's just wrong. So when do we stop saying that this squad has won a Treble Treble and had an invincible season?}

13.) 29 Mar 2020 16:40:39
Am with you ed the lions were named because that wonderful afternoon in Lisbon and 11 players.

{Ed007's Note - Exactly, the clue's in the name.}

14.) 29 Mar 2020 18:30:47
Ed. that's like saying 50 years ago Auld only won 6 titles but didn’t win the full 9 titles. He has always been classed as a 9 in a row winner. Which he is.
In 50 years time it will be the same. It will be players remembered for winning 10 in a row or whatever it may be and there will be players remembered for winning or playing a part in winning a Treble Treble.

{Ed007's Note - Hahahaha in 50 years time maybe James Forrest will be called a Lisbon Lion as well then eh? In fact I've just decided that he is, if you can award Bertie Auld league winners medals for titles he never won and praise players for things they had nothing to do with then it's only fair that I can award James Forrest a EC winners medal.}

15.) 30 Mar 2020 02:03:34
The Lisbon Lions are the players that got them to Lisbon as well the ones that played there, am I the only sane person here?

16.) 30 Mar 2020 07:52:45
Where you the only sane person when you wanted to send Brown out on loan and build a team around Kouassi and Bayo and replace an overrated Forster with 37 year old Gordon.

17.) 31 Mar 2020 12:52:20
Yes, I would have sent Brown anywhere to get him off the first team, but I would have built the team round McGregor and Christie, and Forster is vastly over rated.

18.) 04 Apr 2020 09:53:45
@aindoh are you NUTS Big Frazer is a great goalkeeper did you watch the league Cup final he single handed won us the cup.

19.) 19 Apr 2020 17:27:09
Forster is the best goalie we've had since boruc the big man has saved us countless times in Europe this year and in the cup final was something special.



11 Jan 2020 10:00:20
Sign a quality striker and we secure the 9. Don't and we maybe won't. The new recruitment fella has done well to date and could make himself a legend. Find another Henrik Larsson for £650,000.


1.) 11 Jan 2020 16:34:05
Or New Lubo, Nakamura or McStay.

Turnbull failed medical surely not?


1.) 25 Jun 2019 19:50:34
What a total farce.

2.) 25 Jun 2019 20:44:54
The banter years! We've become a bigger laughing stock than Sevco.

3.) 25 Jun 2019 21:19:21
This is a perfect scenario for Peter Lawwell though. come start of the 2019/ 20 season or even the Winter transfer window, he can say we were heavily involved in trying to get players in. God knows how trying we have been.

4.) 25 Jun 2019 21:38:10
So the boy has a medical issue and we are a laughing stock? How? More of a laughing stock if we sign a player that has an issue surely?

5.) 25 Jun 2019 22:05:26
The whole thing has been amateurish and unprofessional if you can't see that then you're clearly blind. To the statements on Twitter, Kennedys comments, the leaked photo in a Celtic top and now it turns out he might not even pass the medical. laughing stock! If you're anyone but a Celtic fan.

6.) 26 Jun 2019 00:03:49
Why would that be bravetart. Because a player failed his medical. And they have signed about 5 free contracts.

7.) 26 Jun 2019 00:07:48
Bravetart, I agree with most of what your saying buddy but bigger laughing stock than sevco! Behave urself for godsake. this is the same sevco who have went through 5 managers in 3 season while we’ve won 9 trophies in a row! I agree that our transfer dealings are a shambles and if we know how to make an arse of it we usually do, but come on mate let’s calm down a bit eh.

8.) 26 Jun 2019 00:08:22
big hartson had an issue with his knee and failed a medical for the gers but did vert well for us.

07 Jul 2020 21:48:47
Any thoughts on how Celtic having handled the current situation? Me and ma laddie have just forked out over £1000 for two season tickets to watch our team on TV. If you looked at the website the wrong way or bumped against computer it would have renewed your season ticket.

Yet we'd to get a form-sign it and return it-in the the current paperless contactless climate-only to be sent a cheque that I need to physically take to the bank and wait clearing. Thousands losing jobs-thousands furloughed on 80% of wages-and now facing unemployment-and what have Celtic done in return?

Nothing for me other than the fact it's the 10 IAR season and their are 17,000 on the waiting list. Any other season it could have been another story. Is this a club in touch with its roots? I'm lucky- I've worked right through, but many haven't and won't after it. Could Celtic have done more or am I missing something?


1.) 07 Jul 2020 22:00:06
I think the club could've made it a lot easier to refund the money, put it this way they take many peoples money easily enough when they opt into the ticket scheme, surely a simple opt into the refund scheme could be done for most. I get that some people don't do online and it would've been a bit harder to refund them but it would be a relatively low number.

2.) 07 Jul 2020 23:02:00
Tough times for all including the club.

3.) 08 Jul 2020 01:13:30
Look, the answer is obvious, it's so obvious, no one mentions it, football players are massively, obscenely overpaid, so are politicians, TV, radio presenters, pop stars, the ones at the bottom of the pyramid should not be the ones suffering most, just so the guys playing for the first team can buy another Bentley, let's get things back in perspective, if season ticket holders don't get to see the game they should get a refund, if first team players aren't or haven't been playing, they should have been furloughed under the government scheme, and season ticket holders should be compensated for the games that didn't happen, for this season that is upcoming is ridiculous to charge supporters for a season ticket just to watch the games on the television, there must be a better solution, that doesn't mean the ordinary supporters bear the total brunt of this whole horrible time, to me it smacks a little too much of how The rangers treated, (and still do) , their supporters as a cash cow, Celtic should find a better solution, maybe asking every one of the playing and management staff to take a huge pay cut, until supporters are allowed back in, and the money saved can be used to recompense the season ticket holders.

4.) 08 Jul 2020 01:51:37
Totally agree JFP. The lack of communication around the virtual season ticket has been poor as well. I expected an update on some sort of rebate on matches not seen in person as well but nothing. All of the above plus having a new baby means I haven't renewed. Been going since the Strachan days as well.

5.) 08 Jul 2020 15:59:48
JFP Did you not know about the virtual book before spending money on 2 season books. If you had bought them previously why did you not cancel it was a easy option. Im at a loss how that's Celtic fault. Everyone was made well aware of it.
Refund 1000s pay by cash every season and 1000s not on HCTS. How was Celtic know who wanted a refund without asking. Fill the form out, you got a cheque and you have to put it in the bank. Woow the hardship could have saved yourself a lot of hassle and not took the refund if filling a form out and banking cheque was such a drama.
What's 10 in a row got to do with it.

6.) 08 Jul 2020 16:08:39
Dont quote me but I don't think many of our 1st team would have been eligible for furlough as I think most earn over 50k a year which I thought was a cut off for the job retention scheme. As I've fell completely down the conspiracy rabbit hole I'm not really up to date with the whole C.V. thing.



05 Jul 2020 16:29:21
Hi llads what's the consensus on when were likely to get back into Celtic Park againsn and how are they going to manage it? I can't see how to be honest. Is it closed doors from start of August?


1.) 05 Jul 2020 17:47:18
A don't get how cinemas can open but football stadiums cant. Nonsense.

2.) 05 Jul 2020 17:59:49
Steph what is being proposed?

3.) 05 Jul 2020 19:57:30
Cinemas will reopen soon. How can that be safe but football stadiums arent, I know its on a larger scale but that must be the only difference.

4.) 06 Jul 2020 09:07:15
I don't see why they cannot set up social distancing as the stadium is all seating so the spacing can be done. Wearing masks a condition of entry. Control of exit entry is easy enough to organise. Toilet access same as shops, queue at marked intervals.
The problem is people.
Some won't wear masks as they believe it infringes their rights, they don't believe they work etc.
Also, not so easy to cheer team wearing masks but, again, I see no issue as you are already spaced (as in distance not as in Buckie lol)
It can be managed but it gets down to people and compliance.
(look at the pubs down south, the beaches, the holidaymakers in Spain. PEOPLE)
Oh, and please take that the way meant aswe are NOT the Peepul lol.



18 May 2020 20:33:06
Congratulations Celtic, Neil and Pedro. I'm of a vintage to remember our first 9 in a row and didn't think I'd see it again. As I've said the other mob deep down will be delighted to have lost the title this way rather than to lose it the way they know they would. So don't believe any stories ye hear about them sitting with their da tonight saying 'Oh father why are you so sad'.


1.) 18 May 2020 21:27:55
JFP your ears must be burning mate John that goes up by sent me the 25th anniversary video for the schonenstat hope you got it.

2.) 18 May 2020 21:38:53
Like you JFP 1888, I am happy and satisfied to celebrate my second 9 in a row . First time round we had a magnificent team and manager . European Champions and Jock had replaced most of them and kept on winning . In the modern game players and managers tend to move on . I am happy to say at different times throughout the nine seasons we have played some magnificent football and none more so than the one that ended today . The future is bright, the future is green and white .
Hopefully we will get back playing and winning this year .

Are we all keeping well amid the C.V.-1690? I can tell by the volume of Airdrie traffic this morning that a section of the community would rather heid Boris's advice rather than Nicholas. Ye were allowed tae party the gither on VE Day but feckn calm doon. Yip I know who you are but I can't say the H word cause Ed will ban me. So what's the craic with the league title? Oh, and more importantly why does our club still use that c***t' Park's buses?


1.) 13 May 2020 23:19:13
jfp1888,i used to work for that c**t pa*k. he sacked me because i would not run bent. tribual agreed with me and i got a wee wedge. i do believe celtic pay to kit out these buses with the needs of the players, ie microwaves, fridges and a whole host of refinement. these buses used to be idle all week so i would imagine there is a contract for a certain period of time.
