Amidst the howling madness of the Ibrox support over their upcoming partial stadium closure there’s some snarking at Celtic over the idea that we might be about to sign Kilmarnock defender Greg Taylor.
Is there a more bitter individual in all of Scottish football when his team has just been beat than Craig Levein?
Neil McCann – yes, the Neil McCann this blog frequently criticises – has paid tribute to the “brilliant” Celtic fans who protected the club’s good name this afternoon by pointing out an idiot in the stand who appeared to throw an object onto the pitch...
This midweek, we saw yet another excellent performance from a player who has grown into his Parkhead role like few others I’ve seen.
Before I start this piece, you have to excuse me for the use of language in it.
Amidst the fury emanating from the Ibrox support over UEFA’s decision today to close part of their ground for the match against Legia Warsaw is the usual whatabouttery and one rather fine, fantastic, conspiracy theory...
I’ve written before about the website called Football Scotland.
Last night, the worst fans to visit Celtic Park since the Ibrox horde’s most recent trip to town rolled in and tried to wreck the place.
So Craig Levein becomes the first manager in Scotland to “stand up for Lennon” as our manager faces the criticism that goes with making huge mistakes at the biggest club in the country.
If we lose to Hearts at the weekend the reaction online will not be good.
Where the Hell are these stories coming from about how our “transfer target” Daniel Sturridge has snubbed both us and the Ibrox club and gone somewhere else? I’ve read one website, and one article, that has made an explicit connection between Daniel Sturridge and this club.
Well, Lennon gave us the news that nobody wanted to hear today, and it was not in the least bit surprising.
Today Celtic is taking more flak from the fans for sending out a message urging supporters to “Plan Ahead” by booking early for Xmas functions at Parkhead.
Day Three of the Tom Boyd story, and there is talk that Celtic could be fined as much as £100,000 for his comments.
Today Kilmarnock signed QPR left back Niko Hamalainen on loan for the season.
Today I got an email from Celtic telling me that general tickets for Thursday’s game are now on sale...
Since the weekend, the media has focussed much of its ire on Tom Boyd.
Partick Thistle then. A home game in the real Glasgow derby, and the road to Hampden is once again laid out in front of us.
From the moment Neil Lennon was announced as manager, one line of defence has been proposed for him over and over again; he is the man who knows how to get us to 10.
Today we were six minutes from seeing the proudest record in domestic football gambled on the lottery of a penalty shoot-out.
Amongst all the anger on social media, there have been a few sensible suggestions...
If you weren’t worried after Tuesday, or if you just weren’t worried enough, then now is the time to be, because Mr “Collective Responsibility” told the media at his press conference today that his tactics – his abysmal, amateurish, disastrous tactics – had “no bearing on the game.” He also said the result would “galvanise”...
Reading through some of the forums and blogs today I am mystified as to why anyone is surprised, or why anyone cares, that Brendan Rodgers has sent one of his reserves to Ibrox for the season...
Today, like clockwork, out went the tweets, the first out of Celtic since Tuesday night.
If the reaction on Celtic cyberspace was entirely predictable after last night – and it’s pretty near unanimous that Lennon was to blame for the tactics and the result but the board should carry the can for strategic failures almost beyond count – then the reaction on the NewCo sites probably won’t come as any...
On 25 May this year, on the anniversary of the greatest triumph in the history of the club, and with another historic accomplishment just completed, even as the supporters were celebrating that fact, the Celtic board offered Neil Lennon, our interim boss, a man who took the job after the resignation of Brendan Rodgers, the...
This morning, Phil posted a piece that suggested that our manager is not in control of the signing policy and that he left Bolingoli and Jullien on the bench because he does not fancy them as players and did not sign them in the first place...
In the aftermath of a night like that, fans want to see people assume their share of the blame.
Last week, when Bolingoli was being slated by some of our fans and everyone in the media – and I wonder what the hacks agenda could possibly have been?
Rival managers have a lot of different tools when it comes to messing with the minds of the opposition bosses, but Dan Petrescu’s effort is especially interesting.
I guess now that Kieran Tierney has actually left Celtic Park, in spite of his protestations of love and loyalty, John McGinn feels that this is a good time to profess his own affections for the club he turned down the chance to play for in the first place...
The Ibrox websites are obsessed with the idea that everything that Celtic do revolves around them.
Earlier in the week, I actually breathed a sigh of relief on the day that the Tierney deal was done.
Bayo, Jullien, Boli improves, Fraser is back, James on the left, Wanyama chat, AIK and of course the game at Mordor...
