I rarely pay any attention to what our Glasgow neighbours or their followers have to say. Nor will I in future. But the startling comment yesterday about the Flanagan decision being 'an embarrassment for the whole of Scottish football", well, given the current front page headlines, they should have perhaps been tempted to rethink that. Maybe they are upset we got a decision from the SFA for once or is this a classic 'deflect the blame' as we've come to expect. Somehow I don't think their millions will all be spent on players, mores the genuine pity. Maybe their comms team need a wee reflection. Anyway, come on The Famous tomorrow, let's finish strongly and build the momentum for next season.

How’d that strong finish go mate? Canter again for the 8iar champions! And another cup final on Saturday! marvellous to be a Tim right now!

20 May 2019 11:40:46
Not a great finish but not losing any sleep over it. Or reading forums for another club. Still, hope you’re allowed out for your final next week. I’ll be in Vegas.

20 May 2019 11:41:13
And it’s probably the safest time as well.

20 May 2019 19:24:01
Aww al be out alrite! Not often u see your team win 3 trebles on the trot! Off work on Monday so it will be party time all weekend for me and the rest of my fellow Tims!

20 May 2019 20:56:26
Well you enjoy. And watch your back.

20 May 2019 21:16:44
You to mate, hope you have some luck in Vegas.

20 May 2019 22:21:06
Won $54 last trip. Going for 55 next trip.

20 May 2019 22:52:34
well good luck with that bud! More chance of winning 55 than your team has I guess! They’ve been talking about winning it on there next trip for the last 3 years! Lol.

21 May 2019 00:45:02
Wonder if it's next season the rangers are coming? No doubt this time next season it will be the following season and so on.

21 May 2019 07:08:08
Look over there.

21 May 2019 13:31:47
Why does it have to be an anti The rangers thing,?, can't you look at Flanagan, taking aim, and throwing his elbow into Browns face, and then stand up and say, "that's a red card", but you won't do that will you?, you will say, "what about Siminovic running along and his elbow hitting Defoes face, nothing happened to him", why can't you admit Flanagan was in the wrong?, and the decision to rescind his red card was in the wrong?, and if you don't believe me about Flanagan taking aim, have a look at it on YouTube.

21 May 2019 14:34:57
Looked everywhere cannot see them.

22 May 2019 10:03:37
Flanagan was in the wrong. He caught Brown in the chest. Give him a red. No argument from me. But it goes both ways. Only mitigation is that Flanagan’s forearm is a separate entity from his intent. Any suggestion otherwise is scurrilous.

23 May 2019 18:02:46
Too late to use Flanagan and scurrilous in the same sentence.
His reputation was already in the gutter after battering his girlfriend.

25 May 2019 09:48:58
His reputation went up a few notches when he nearly put Rogic in the Copland Road stand!

18 May 2019 07:48:49
Neal Lennon releases a statement saying we release too many statements then they released another statement today Is it no THEM that's releasing too many statements am a bit confused now who is it that's releasing too many statements?



18 May 2019 17:12:57
A statement would sort it tinman.

19 May 2019 11:26:38
No spokesman all week to release a statement regarding what's going on behind the scenes at parkhead, but desperate to give statements on this? think they need to start addressing the important issues first.

20 May 2019 18:22:49
Maybe a petition?

17 May 2019 18:51:02
We all know that Flannigan's forearm to broons chest was a red but wee lemmon told us all that celtic don't do statements - suppose we should have taken that statement with a pinch of salt as they don't do letters, but .



18 May 2019 09:03:59
Everybody seems to have conveniently forgotten about simunovic's elbow on Defoe that actually looked worse tbh. Maybe I imagined it and it didn't happen? Lol. Letters and statements are what that club does best as is the same for the Lurgan bigot. Also nobody has mentioned the players cited table where we sit at the top with double figures. Every other club in the league also have numbers except one. Now which club woukd that be? As I've said before along with many othets - all I want is fairness across the board. Yes I thought Flannagan's was a red despite peanut's obvious play acting, but so was the other incident. VAR can't come quickly enough for me.

15 May 2019 15:30:56
Just popped over to the dark sides web site. Glad to see that the likes of timaloy are now coming round to my way of thinking.

I've posted on here for months that their team will require a major rebuild and that this will not be easy they have several players that are on big money, that they will struggle to ship out.
Their fans continue to state how many millions they have in the bank, however with a wage bill of 61 million (now about 59 million now brenda has left) . And their commitment to building their bb and by what I'm hearing there is major issues with this as investors in the project are withdrawing due to issues surrounding brexit.

So let's break it down a new manager if Lennon doesn't get the job will cost, if decent a min of 2.5 mill per year, normally 3 year deal and along with his staff and a head of recruitment also required, will cost your club say about 14 million over 3 years.

Now the team, for the first team at least 4 new signings required and poss another 6 squad players required. So let's say about 10 million in transfer and agent fees and prob about the same in wages.

Liewell and DD are business men with profit being king and will not sanction the major investment required until the current wage levels a reduced.

Rodgers record in domestic competitions cannot be questioned however he has left your club in some mess with his failures in the transfer market. Your club currently have at least 10 players that are no where near the first team on long contracts and on big wages and as such the club will find it difficult to ship out.

For the last 7 years your club have dominated the spl and have had the luxury of cherry picking all the best young players in Scottish football this is not the case any more with those players now coming to rangers. Docherty, Jones, hastie, Kamara.
Your team also have had the luxury of bring players like Forrest McGregor KT and Christie into the team without any real pressure as there has been no real challenge. Now that there is a challenge this isn't as easy as Johnstone, Ralston ect have found out

The transfer policy for your club over the past 6 years has been buy projects and sell on for big cash. This can be done easily when you have no challenge. However I wonder if your club, now that there is a challenge will continue down that same road.

Rangers atm have a big name manager that will attract good players to our club. I would say that currently our team is about 80% down the road in our rebuild. If you know anything about football in that when you add 15 new players to your squad, one of the things that suffers is consistency as your trying to blend in these new players into the squad and add a new style of football.
This has been the case for most of the season but now our players are starting to gel as a team. Results have proven this as in our last 6 games 14 goals scored 1 goal conceded all against the top six teams. Even the previous old firm game at the paddy field your team where hanging on against our 10 men.

Yes your team is on the brink of making history of treble treble but if your honest, your team are stagnant and going backwards. Where we are a team on the up and once we get back on top then we will be difficult to shift. Mainly because your board will always put profit first.



15 May 2019 17:38:01
can you be stagnant and move backwards.

15 May 2019 18:30:31
Right Stewartyblue, there is numerous flaws in your post but can't be bothered picking you up on them all. But can you tell me "at least 10 players that are nowhere near the first team on long contracts and big wages" I'm intrigued. Did you just make this up to make you feel better after another season of failure? One thing you were right about we have stagnated. Stagnated means everything stays the same. Yip you're right still picking up Trebles 🏆🏆🏆.

15 May 2019 22:43:12
Ok stevie let's go through it and b4 we start what I ment to say in my previous post was no where near good enough for your first team.

Players that have still a year or more to run on their contracts compper, Gordon, Ralston, bitton, kouassi, hendry, mulumbu, bayo (injured untested), Griffith ( will be surprised to see him playing at top level again) .
Players who's contracts are ending and will leave Allan, lustig, Boyata, izzaguirre, Gamboa, De Vries, toljan.
Three loan signing coming to a end.

Take bayo out of that lot, that's 16 players your team need to replace.

No new manager announced no head of recruitment in place. 7 weeks till first champ league qualifier.

Other players in your squad that most of your fans are not happy with and look disinterested according to social media your website celtic rumours and the phone ins rogic, sinclair, ntcham and edovard is never a 9 million pound player.

When I stated your team have stagnated your manager and board should have blown us out of the water within the previous 2 transfer windows but you didn't
When the season comes to a end your team will have went backwards.

If I was a betting man failure to reach champ league group stages again will result in either KT McGregor or Forrest being sold.

The main question is are you confident that your board will fund replacing 16 players a top manager and his team and a head of recruitment.

16 May 2019 08:52:15
Stewartyyblue Our squad was over inflated with players so not all of those that you have named need to be replaced. We ended the year with quite a hefty profit so if we need to then we can splash the cash.

The players that you mentioned that rangers pipped celtic to (kamara, hastie etc) I don't remember celtic ever being linked with them. The only one of them that seems to be anywhere near the quality that we need is kamara.

It's OK to lash out after another disappointing season for your team but the dilussion you're showing is quite remarkable.

16 May 2019 12:55:52
Stewartyblue, our bubble will eventually burst, that's a fact. But if winning the league and one possibly two cups as well is a decline. Then I'm happy lol.

16 May 2019 14:47:15
You’re bubble has a slow puncture already. Of that there is no doubt.

16 May 2019 15:26:37
Slow punctures can be repaired did the rangers balloon not completely burst in 2012.

16 May 2019 16:38:30
Yes it did But it’s been fixed but for a few bits here and there. Yours needs less work than ours did but the hot air is leaking badly and the repairs have not even nearly started. You’ve started going backwards and it’s great fun to watch.

16 May 2019 16:50:04
Stewsrtyblue 🎣 🤣🤣.

16 May 2019 18:01:26
And I think that our 2nd goal - a thing of absolute beauty - is symbolic as it marks the end of your dominance. Move over and let the big boys in.

16 May 2019 18:10:18
Bruisedbear.

8 in a row backwards.

A Hampden cup final to come backwards.

A league cup win backwards.

Please I'll take the backwards over 2nd place, and stuffed in two cup semi finals by farm animals, everyday of the week.

16 May 2019 19:25:53
To all the deluded that have responded to my post. Keep telling yourselfs that because you are on the brink of a treble treble that everything is rosey in the garden at your club. I will be surprised if Lennon gets the job as it would have been announced by now. So major rebuild needed and if you think that a full new management team, head of recruitment and 10 or 12 players leaving. With seven of them leaving for nothing. Isn't a major rebuild then you are truly deluded.

Having cash in the bank doesn't guarantee success as every manager and player at the levels our clubs operate at is a gamble. How has edovard 9 million worked out, if he was put up for sale you would be lucky to be offered 5 mill for him.

Again I will say 7 weeks till first champ qualifier tick tock tick tock.

16 May 2019 19:55:43
AHW. Your team took it backwards on Sunday. No mistaking. And it made great viewing.

19 May 2019 18:05:18
At least were are in CL qualifiers, something your club has never participated in.

Although we need a few new players and a manager in, we will still get 10iar because there is no real threat in league from any club.

19 May 2019 23:09:17
I up for this challenge stew, ok all your opinion and some facts thrown in for good measure.
Let me start by saying most of the players leaving are not in the first team and are being moved on for a reason and there is Lustig who will prob move on and we want replaced anyway.
We currently have Shved, Bayo, Griff, Christie, 2 Americans, and Koassi 2 come in.
That's 7 straight away out of them I would expect Shved Griff and Bayo to be pushing for places and Koassi has it in him to improve and take over from Brown.
This is without signing a player, you are rubbishing our signing policy simply because your scared of it as it has proven over the years to bring in 10s of millions.
This could be a watershed moment for us if we get right manager in as it could push us to 10 easily.
Someone asked me the other day if Celtic suddenly lost 40m out of their bank would they go under? Simple answer is no hats how much we are in front.
Onto Trophyless FC, all your talk but you conveniently forget you could easily be without your 2 best players next season.
Morelos sold and no kent is a real possibility and yet no mention.
A team that loses its best 2 players usually struggles no matter who they are.
A team gets to a point where they can no longer improve due to finances or availability of players and we hit that last season.
I said at beginning of the season to all on our pages that how do u replace Mcgregor, Brown, Armstrong, Tierney, Forrest, Rogic, Ntcham Dembelle etc with better?
You just can't unless your a EPL team with 100s of millions, and they prob won't come to Scotland anyway, with tiredness etc that's the REAL reason we have stagnated this season.
Even with all the problems we had this season we still heading for a treble treble, is that not worrying for YOU?
Anyway look forward to similar posts from yourself in near future.
As I keep saying on here start biging it up when u actually win something.

20 May 2019 16:59:33
On course for a treble treble and youse are empty handed again this season. Yet we are on the downward spiral and youse are on the up do not make me laugh. Celtic have a manger and transfers on going behind the scenes were as youse love to go on record with you're transfers to sell seasons books. Remind me again who was the player from france who knocked youse back after a meeting with the mighty gerrard. Yes many will leave us this summer good riddance its al players we want out the club. the backbone of our squad is on long contracts so if offers come in its double figures again. all wee need is 3 quality additions to our squad. A right back a centre back and a foward. And 1 or 2 players for cover in certain postions. We go into the season settled and on course . It won't be like start of this season. Youse had your chance this season wee have been in turmoil and youse still blew it and for us to be in turmoil and still winning league shows the quality wee have.

22 May 2019 11:14:57
Ok rayman you mentioned losing our 2 best players, we haven't done to bad without morelas in the past 6 games. One player that has better stats re goals and assits than Kent will return Murphy. We also have Jordon Jones to replace Kent if he leaves.

If you ask any gers fan this season was more about building a squad that can compete with your team. I don't see your team coming to ibrox and even parkhead and slaughtering us like the previous seasons. This imo has been achieved as we have the building blocks in place to progress even more next season. Let me look at it from another point of view. If you signed these players would they go right into your first team squad. Arfield Morelas Defoe Davis kamara McGregor katic Goldson Tav Kent. Ie building blocks

Now back to your team you stated most of the players leaving aren't in the first team lustig boyata bitton izzy Ralston toljan have all played first team football since xmas. The 2 yanks bayo shvd and koassi all untested. As I said in earlier posts I'm going on what your own fans are saying about Sinclair ntcham and Rogic all look disinterested. Broon I would say is now in twilight of his career and Edovard is not the 9 million pound player that you all thought he would be.

No onto your board. The past 2 windows the have had the chance to totally blow us away but yet again have failed the support. I also believe that your board not wanting to spend resulted in Rodgers leaving same as O'Neil, Strachan and Lennon first time around. Throughout your history your board have constantly shafted the fans by putting profit first and only spending just enough to appease the fans.
Take Scotland and Rangers out of the acquisition.

How much do you think it will cost re manager his staff. Head of recruitment, and players will it take to be a able to compete in the CL group stages if you qualify or are you happy to continue to be the groups whipping boys. I would say between 30 n 40 million. Do you in all honesty believe your board will come anywhere near spending that. Remember as I stated 59 mill wage bill and commitments to the Hotel.

I also stated in my posts that yes your club has 40 mill in the bank but the biggest problem both our clubs face is trying to attract top players to our league. Both Celtic and Rangers have a wage structure, that I'm guessing isn't far off the 30k per week at the max. Most players can get double that in the English championship, if they are decent players. So as I stated imo Rangers have the upper hand atm as SG is a world renowned name, that will attract players to our club.

Would you agree that your team needs at least 7 or 8 first team players that can be trusted to slot into your first team squad ( not your first 11). Imo that is a major rebuild because if your team sign say 10 players if 60% work out then you will be lucky.

Rangers have been through the process of rebuilding and weeding out that 40% that haven't worked out this season. The result have been that the team have been inconsistent. Your team imo will experience the same as what we have experienced this season. When new players aren't good enough and make mistakes costing your team goals as we have found out to our cost this season.

23 May 2019 11:13:19
So if we lose al these great players who play back up to the main team how much wages would that save us a year? None of the players leaving are that important to be fair . The spine of the team are on long contacts and a relatively young Bain Tierney simo Ajer new RB needed cal Mac brown ( getting on now still two seasons in him ) Christie Forest Sinclair and french eddy so a complete overhaul is bull and the majority of you should see that clear as day andstill got other player for the bench that would do a job Rogic Hayes Grith Ntcham.

23 May 2019 21:29:39
If your talking about core of the team morelas best forward in the league, tav best right back, McGregor best keeper, Goldson, katic on par with your 2 centrehalfs, Kent on par with Forrest, Defoe best natural finisher in the league, Kamara, Davis Arfield Jack. If we can keep Kent and morelas and add a left back. Your team are in for one helluva fight next season. We have now found a system that suits our players and they are starting gel as a team.
And as for the core of your team the last 2 old firm games at ibrox we have whipped the floor with your core. Even with ten men the second half at your ground we should have beaten your mob.

15 May 2019 07:05:22
Some of the things I have read over the past few days from the celtic - this has a hint of 2016 semi final, this is the wake up call we need, Celtic will spend and pull away again. Now, if that's their take on things to comfort each other then that is their choice. My only problem with that is a missive 60 MILLION pounds wage bill. How much more can they add to that bill? They will need an awful lot of their players to walk away either free of charge or purchased. Not going to happen. My second thought is, its a hint of 2016 for them maybe. With them having virtually the same team and we have 1 or 2 from that day. My point is, we aren't that weak team that beat Celtic that day anymore. Its not going to take a few million to pull away from us again. That would take serious money and as we all know, that is something they won't be prepared to do!



13 May 2019 18:19:03
Scott Brown - a big boy did it then ran away 😂😂😂😂😂.



15 May 2019 07:35:35
A big boy with two medals this season :) . After the dust has settled down, the history books will reflect the real Champions. COYBIG. Will be heard next season 😉.

13 May 2019 10:30:54
Big Mutton at it again! The most bitter agenda ridden Pundit out there and that's saying something Wee Tam McManus (had to look him up) having a go now I've looked back but couldn't see his article denouncing the hanging effigies at the midden got to make the agenda fit eh!



13 May 2019 08:12:19
The referees and sfa are corrupt again lol no mention of it since xmas when they pulled away from us. 1 lovely win for us and its the whole worlds out to get us again. Did that mob honestly think we would never get our act together again?



13 May 2019 18:45:44
You have won nothing and this is getting your act together?

13 May 2019 19:38:45
I would say we were getting our act together, wouldn't you in our position? What's happened to your act btw? Lol.

13 May 2019 23:45:41
cannot believe you've come out with that Seeker😂 Has that victory yesterday erased from your memory the fact Celtic are on the verge of winning a treble treble?

14 May 2019 09:38:01
We are definitely on the up and your mob are in decline. If you don't acknowlege that then you are deluded and in total denial.

14 May 2019 23:05:26
As Maximus Aurelius once said "the time for honouring yourself is almost at en end" Surely you must be at least slightly worried after getting your arse firmly put in a sling once again? Not so much the defeat as the manner of it? No? I can smell the fear tbh. Maybe it's not the fear I smell lol.

15 May 2019 06:10:52
Its definetly coming from their direction!

15 May 2019 06:19:41
Hahaha! Seeker coming out with more deluded classics! What’s happened to our act? That will be the act that is about to win trophy number 9 on the bounce! Haha. and I’m as worried now as I was in December when u beat us! How did that go for you again after that? Aww aye your bottles crashed once again and you couldn’t buy a win when the pressure was on! I’ll ask u a simple question. if back in the day of the oldco when they were winning things we had beat you twice in a season but u had won every trophy in sight, would u be sitting there worrying about us? Shall I answer that for you? It’s NO by the way! We’ve won everything in sight by playing as bad as we possibly could and losing a manager during the season! And u still couldn’t do anything about it! We’ll regroup again in the summer, inject some freshness in the squad and be ready for 9iar! yes That’s 9 leagues in a row pal! And i have no doubt whatsoever your arses will collapse once again when it really matters! Aww aye and when’s the open top bus parade happening for your 2 wins by the way? U can hold up an imaginary trophy during it haha!

15 May 2019 07:09:21
Everything in sight obviously doesn't include the games at Ibrox!

15 May 2019 07:59:07
Must be worrying to capitulate si badly thar your support goes into full meltdown. And thanks fit taking the time to write such a long obsessive post on our site. Something I have never and will never do. Must be really strange to hate a club more than you love your own. The natural order will be restored very soon and I think you know it. The timplosion will be magnificent. Can't wait to drink it in, drink it all in. What happened to the Stevie G will be away by Christmas quote I read everywhere at ths start of the season?

15 May 2019 17:58:09
C of Ibrox every trophy in sight son 😜 but u cling on to those 2 victory’s! Dear oh dear how times have changed indeed eh! Celtic on the verge of 9 trophies on the bounce and going into 9iar season next season but the hysteria on here is laughable! Remember the days of the oldco when they celebrated actual trophies and 2nd was seen as abject failure! Now the newco are applauded off the park for finishing runners up and failure to even get to a cup final! Wee club mentality and absolutely staggering levels of delusion! Long may it continue but because my god what a laugh everybody else has at your expense! And seeker I’m remember the last trophyless moron who uttered the words natural order! How did that work out hahaha yir some laugh!

12 May 2019 20:45:17
All that moaning about a guard of honour and they didn't even show up for one!



12 May 2019 22:28:42
The only guard they should have got was right guard.

13 May 2019 09:26:05
Seeker 😂😂😂😂.

12 May 2019 20:17:32
Aw aw aw its magic you know it will never be nine in row. We now have the core of the team sorted and with 3 of the best wingers in the league added to squad with Murphy Jones and Hastie and Dorrens returning to the squad it's all looking great for next season. SG will add 2 or 3 quality players to our squad. Hopefully Kent is one of those signing.

55 let's go.



13 May 2019 18:46:32
Was that a copy and paste from last season lol.
