We all love Emilio – but Izzy the answer for Celtic?

After a trying week for Celtic, one piece of news with the feelgood factor was the return of Emilio Izaguirre as cover for Kieran Tierney at left-back.It’s not at all hard to love Izzy and most fans do.A player who is never gave less than his all (as he noted himself) those years of flying down the left wing have not been forgotten by the fans and he left to real affection and well-wishing from the supporters.

Novo and Limmy: A handful of Celtic fans leave an open goal to critics

The season has started – fairly well for Celtic – and yet, the Scottish mainstream media are awash with negative stories about the club.

Getting it right -- and wrong. How I predicted last season’s Celtic fortunes

Football predictions are great. They are usually made with not one iota of insight or expertise and are therefore usually wrong.On the plus side, the majority of people are blessed with an inability to recall the screeds of nonsense written before a season starts so it’s a relatively hazard-free pastime.But not for this blogger, dear reader (sorry!).

Against Modern Football: Celtic censoring the Rosenborg match is not fair play but shameful

In recent times, on social media, fans’ banners and even graffiti, the words, Against Modern Football”, have increasingly been seen.

Celtic Park no place for Bozos or Jozos – Simunovic has to go

In one of the most embarrassing misjudgements made even by this blogger, the defensive partnership of Jozo Simunovic and Dedryck Boyata was tipped as one to watch develop, a ball-playing defensive rock, powerful and calm, and one capable of holding its own against Europe’s elite clubs.

Pride – in the Name of Celtic

Like many others in the Celtic support, I was brought up in a deeply-religious, Catholic family.

Celtic in for John McGinn? If you know the history, the move would make sense

Anyone who reads this irregularly-published blog more than twice a year can tell you that I never shy away from saying, “I told you so”.I make no apology for doing so as I simply have a near-perfect memory for those occasions on which I have been proved right.A cynic might suggest that’s because they are so few in number but that’s not true.In fact, they are too many to count on the free fingers of my hands while I type this.One of those times was my enthusiastic support for Scott Brown, from the outset...

More than 25 million reasons why Celtic want Kieran Tierney to leave

You’re already fed up hearing about Kieran Tierney leaving Celtic and so am I – but some issues need to be addressed.

A shrug farewell to Stuart Armstrong

Congratulations, Stuart – you have finally got that move to headier climes that you have been angling for for at least a year.

Time for spine and conscience to collapse King’s house of cards

I am not going to start by sympathising with outgoing Scottish Football Association director, Gary Hughes, even though I don’t believe that he did anything wrong by calling Rangers fans “the great unwashed” in 2006 – long before he was employed by the SFA.What he said in that interview, so conveniently uncovered by The Rangers, (the original Rangers having been put into liquidation six years after the quote), was a silly joke...

Tom Rogic signing on is a huge vote of confidence for Celtic ahead of the Scottish Cup Final

There is no better time to deliver good news for the club and the fansI had been pondering writing a blog in anticipation of Tom Rogic joining an English Premier League team.Roughly, the outline was this: we we could prosper without him (because we could), we have a lot of attacking talent (which we have) but that my strong preference would be for him to stay because he has qualities that are bettered by very few in the game (and he has).But, at 25, just coming into what should be his football peak, I cou...

If Ann doesn’t Budge and Craig Levein is the future, where does that leave Hearts?

That Club Statement from Dave King and The Rangers on investment for Steven Gerrard

Yesterday, the Twitter account associated with this blog @theceltsarehere posted this “screen grab” of one of those infamous statements from The Rangers...

The reality for The Rangers and Steven Gerrard? It’s over!

Yes, we all saw him and heard what Steven Gerrard had to say but, then again, some of us saw Maurice Johnston in a Celtic shirt for his “second coming” and we all know how that finished...
