Celtic’s Interim Financial Statement Makes A Mockery Of King’s “House Of Cards” Claim.

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...

An Ibrox Fan Site Wants The SFA To Discipline Celtic For Hosting A Screening Party.

Just when you think The Peepul couldn’t get any dumber, an Ibrox fan site wants the SFA compliance officer to open an investigation into our club because a function suite in our ground was supposedly booked for a screening party for Paul Larkin’s documentary Anyone But Celtic; it is his examination of Scottish officiating down...

Gordon Waddell’s Piece On Celtic’s Ambassador Boyd Makes Him Look Ridiculous, Not Our Ex Captain.

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 Media’s Wailing Over Celtic Players Not Being Cited Is Pathetic And Embarrassing.

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...

One of the stories which is trending in the media this morning is the Hearts player – Uche Ikpeazu – who is crying the blues over the “injury crisis” which derailed their season.

Celtic Fans May Soon Be Faced With A Decision As To Whether They’d Boycott Hampden.

Tonight, as the SFA scrambles to limit the likely fall-out should they accept the Ibrox club’s appeal against the red card for Alfredo Morelos, part of the strategy looks like becoming clear; not only has the investigatory panel cited Jozo Simunovic, but according to STV they have also opened a hearing into an alleged dive...

The Record Is Now Trying To Get Our Defender Banned. It Is Time Celtic Banned Them Instead.

The Daily Record hits the low mark yet again. Even as the dust is clearing from their woeful campaigning on behalf of Alfredo Morelos this morning, the paper is trying to have Jozo Simunovic banned for his so-called “challenge” on Oli Shaw...

Last Night Was Another Game In Which We Got No Protection From The Officials.

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...

The Sun Is Going To Be Forced To Apologise Over Their Shocking Celtic Boys Club Tweet.

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...

Celtic Must Power Through Our Injury Crisis Rather Than Risk Playing Unfit Footballers.

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...

Ex-Celt Walker In Idiotic Rant As He Slams “Pathetic” Steve Clarke For Asking For Fairness.

We Don’t Want Celtic Fans Refereeing Our Games. Our Supporters Prefer To Win Clean.

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...

Injuries, Controversies And Points On The Board. Celtic Marches On In The Midst Of It All.

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.

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...
