If Celtic wins today Celtic is on the brink of history, it’s as simple as that.
Today, Steve Clarke took another huge step up in the estimations of the Celtic support when he laid into the media at his press conference, slamming them for their “hysteria’ over Alex Power’s tackle on Ryan Jack last week.
The next time Celtic is in favour of, or against, something we should not utter a word until someone at Ibrox has spoken up on the same point.
Read the headlines today and you’d think last night had plunged us into crisis.
This article will not be one bashing the manager. The headline might suggest otherwise but that’s not the intention at all.
Paul Brennan at CQN has long been considered – and rightly – the blogger with the best, and most complete, understanding of Celtic’s financial muscle...
Before this season even kicked off, Dave King made one of the more ludicrous claims of his tenure at Ibrox; he said that even one year where our club was deprived of Champions League income could see Celtic collapse “like a pack of cards.” Needless to say, our season hasn’t entirely gone according to plan...
Look, there’s no point in denying it any further, is there?
Well, last night after I chucked it for the evening I was going through Netflix looking for something a bit different to watch.
Keith Jackson will never be an honorary Celtic fan.
Now I know James, and a lot of you, have a major issue with football phone ins.
The title of this article isn’t a question, because I know I’m not the only Celtic fan who wouldn’t care if Dembele scored five in his next 90 minutes or if he never scored a goal again.
Well, is there any more doubt at all that our January signings were far better than those from elsewhere? Once again, Oliver Burke shows his class.
Congrats to Tom Boyd for the second week in a row. The comments he made about foreign refs have sparked exactly the reaction I expected, but much later than I expected it.
The Daily Record and a few other outlets just don’t want to quit on this Simunovic thing, even though the SFA has ruled on the matter and said “no case to answer.” In fact, the whining has reached a new pitch with Scott Brown being dragged into it...
Once Again, An Article That Demonstrates Why Celtic Won’t Be Caught Until Others Engage With Reality.
Last night I read an astonishing piece in The Evening Times, a paper that’s going downhill faster than a Russian bobsled team.
Jozo Simunovic has been cleared of elbowing Hibs player Oli Shaw.
Amidst the obvious happiness last night that we had seen the game through and secured the three points there was an understandable anger in certain quarters within the Celtic support, and in particular at the shocking sight of Izzy being carried off the pitch...
Let’s be blunt, Gordon Strachan has always talked nonsense.
This is a subject I usually stay well clear of; the abuse cases which involve people with peripheral connections to Celtic.
Steve Clarke Has Spoken Up For Scottish Football But No, Celtic Fans Shouldn’t Chant His Name Tonight.
Steve Clarke has had a good week thus far, and with his team about to face the Ibrox NewCo at the weekend in the Scottish Cup we’re all hoping that it gets even better...
There is a temptation at every club which finds itself in the midst of an injury crisis to patch up its wounded warriors and throw them back into battle...
I like to watch nature TV shows when I am in the right mood, but I tend not to enjoy those soft-soap ones about penguins or dolphins or wild birds...
One of the stupider points that’s been made to me since the weekend, in relation to the refereeing situation, is that Celtic fans are only angry because of a perception that officials all support the same club, and it’s not the same one as us...
We all love a footballing cliché. As football fans, it’s part of our make-up and after Sunday we an over-used one would be “it is games like that that win you leagues.” Overused it may be, but it’s also true.
On Friday morning, Brendan Rodgers gave his pre-match press conference for the St Johnstone game yesterday.
Last night, as the dust was still clearing on another atrocious weekend of refereeing disgrace in Scotland, the media was united in pushing a single story.
The lamentable situation with our growing injury list is enough to make you want to bang your head against the nearest wall...
In the aftermath of yesterday’s game, Brendan Rodgers said he thought the Ajer red card was deserved.
Today, More Evidence Of The Shameful Double Standard In The Way The Media Previews New Celtic Players.
How heart-warming it must have been for Ibrox new boy Glen Kamara to read such praiseworthy stuff about him in the papers this morning...
When title winning teams look back over the long slog of the campaign, it is days like these which stand out clear and bright...
Today Shows That Celtic Has Not Done Enough To Bring The SFA To Heel Over Scotland’s Dire Refereeing.
At Ibrox today something truly amazing happened, and not in a good way.
The Times Article On Celtic’s “Short Term Gain For Long Term Pain” Is A Transparent Piece Of Nonsense.
Late last night, The Herald Group published a piece on the transfer window which asked whether both halves of Glasgow were going for “short term gain” at the cost of “long term pain.” It was a piece of the sort that has become familiar to their newspapers, all of them titles on the slide with...
How successful, or otherwise, was the window?
