I thought McGregor was outstanding tonight, just grow and grows, future Captain.

Thought it took a few players ten minutes or so to get going. McGregor appeared possessed!

Superb tonight, proper European performance. Two great goals. McGregor, Christie and Tierney were superb and Edouard gave a very good Centre forward performance.

Celtic can hammer Hearts, Hibs and Rangers but are piss poor in Europe, even Rangers are more organised when playing similar european opposition that Celtic are facing.

Why come into this thread if all you can offer is negativity? Go and look at the respective European teams and their performances and league placings this season so far. Add in the fact that rangers last two European opponents had just sacked their managers. But then again don't let facts get in the way of a bit of mind numbing trolling.

The only thing that led to the incident was the thug who thought it was okay to throw the coin, against a background of years of abuse NL and others have received in Scotland. Basically, "know your place tarrier scum."

Strangely, the media, Scottish football commentators and fellow managers all are pretty much unanimous in their condemnation of the thug who threw the coin and in solidarity with NL. Some however, continue with their agendas.

Complete cop out re: Lennon. Has suffered sectarian abuse at every away ground in Scotland except CP but it's all his fault!! How do you work that out?

Takens abuse for 85+ mins then he decides to put finger over lips or motions his hand in a calm down type of motion and they throw coins at him.

Call it out for what it is - sectarianism because Lennon, like Mc Clean won't hide away.
There is a difference between not hiding away and antagonising people and situations.
Lennon has been getting it for 18 years. He’s pantomime villain for hearts and rangers fans who are largely scumbags. It doesn’t take a lot for them to get riled up where an Irish Catholic is concerned
Funny how BR and MON don't seem to get the same attention.

Not sure what the point is there. Majority of players and managers who celebrate in similar way to NL don't have coins thrown at them. Mourinho doing his knee slide down the touchline didn't have an object thrown at him. Why not? I've seen both BR and MON celebrate with exuberance so why NL is singled out mystifies. Just because idiots react to NL does not mean he is doing anything wrong.

What did NL do that was enough to provoke a coin throw? He has done nothing more than lots have done before him but they are not castigated in the same way.
What he did was foolish to say the least.  As I said, nothing should result in a coin throw, but at same time, if he didn't do what he did, then the incident would probably not have happened.
No, no and thrice no! The incident would not have happened if the thug who threw the coin did not think it was acceptable to act like that. The blame lies no where but with the perpetrator and those who ignore the constant incidents at Tynecastle.
As for your second point, plenty of people have celebrated their own team's last minute winner.  Football fans don't mind that, it's part of the game, and it generally doesn't result in what happened to NL the other night.  As I said, what he did was different and he brought the situation entirely upon himself.

What exactly did NL do that was any different to a cupped ear, a finger to the lips or a celebratory knee slide along the touchline?

You say he received an object to the face (turns out it was a £1 coin) and went down like a beached whale. Have you ever been hit in the face with a £1 coin? do you know how sore it is or what impact it would have on you...bear in mind everyone is different and it may bounce of your chin with no damage but could hurt someone else less as granite as your fine self.

You weren't hit in the face either "Neil"  ::) ::) ::)

You reckon that's conclusive? Maybe more than one coin thrown? Or the coin hit him then dropped down as if hitting him on the chest? NL did nothing or has ever done anything to merit the abuse he has received. So f**k up with all the "he brings it on himself", "he doesn't help himself" bullshit. Thousands of folk involved in football do similar week in week out.

Poor wee lambs in the Hearts support, imagine having to endure a goading. Went to the football to watch their team and NL provoked them into throwing a coin. That wasn't an isolated incident last night or any other time we or Hibs play at Tynecastle. NL did no more than thousands of players or coaches do every week. Cupping an ear, finger to the lips, running along the touchline.......  all reprehensible behaviour in some people's books no doubt.
As for Celtics performance, yes it was only Dundee but earlier in the season we may have toiled in that type of match. We are starting to hit our stride domestically, pity about Europe right enough.

They were getting full attendances at Ibrox when they were in the Scottish third Division ,and were paying small wages. They would have earned a bit in the time outside the top flight.

You obviously haven't followed their "journey" and don't know Scottish football. They overspent massively in the lower teirs when there was no need. Their vanity and sense of entitlement scuppered any chance of them accumulating wealth. To illustrate, below is an interview with ex-Rangers striker (and boyhood Celtic fan) Kevin Kyle ;


Now retired, the 37-year-old, in an interview with Open Goal, criticised the club for “bad financial play” in the contracts they handed out to players while they were in the fourth tier having been accepted into the SFL as it was back then.

Kyle had left Hearts in March 2012 and had been close to signing a deal with St Johnstone after Steve Lomas had offered him “£600-700-a-week” when then Rangers boss Ally McCoist invited him to train at Murray Park for two weeks.

After two weeks Kyle approached McCoist explaining he had an offer to play in the top-flight but Rangers were keen to sign him and negotiate a deal.

“I thought if I can get f*****g £700-800 I’d be over the moon,” he told Simon Ferry.

“I walked in and the gaffer said ‘right Kevin, what are you after?’. I’m not sure what came over me I went ‘I want the same money I was getting at Hearts’. £150,000 a year.

He added: “I went out, f*****g nervous, thinking what have I just said there? I’m thinking I’ve killed myself.”

Rangers came back with an offer of £100,000-a-year with a £1,000 appearance fee on top of that, much to the delight of Kyle.

The former Sunderland and Kilmarnock striker admitted that it was not just him who was receiving substantial money from Rangers for playing in the fourth tier.

He said: “What Ian Black was getting, Temps (David Templeton) was getting, Dean Shiels was getting, should never have got.

“That’s not me disrespecting Rangers that’s just bad, bad financial play from Rangers behalf. I chanced my arm and got a decent deal. Rangers didn’t need to spend all that finance to get out the league they were in.”

They signed top league players to get them out of the bottom teir of Scottish football. This was to play against part time players with day jobs. Players that were playing for £50 a week! As I said a vanity project.

Didn't realise how dominant Rangers were before they couped.

OR didn't realise how financially doped they were and how corrupt the institutions were.

Antrim / Re: Antrim Football Thread

And on that basis it has been a hell of a competitive season in Div 3 and an honorable mention to Ardoyne who missed out by a single victory. Hopefully we will see at least one of these clubs continuing forward like Aghagallon, St Endas and St Teresas have in recent seasons. Always good to see different clubs pushing for the top table. Healthy for the spread of interest in the county.

On the flip side St Paul's as a club shouldn't be in Division 3 and Ardoyne and Antrim are not far off the second teir either. Not sure the high scoring margins helps any club develop. A two section expanded second division might be healthier, leaving a six club Division three more competitive. Would advocate play offs then at end of the year between teams at either end of the divisions for right to enter the division above.

Once more Celtic shite in Europe whilst the Gers march on. Somebody needs to get a grip soon.

Gers March on, seriously? They drew at home to a side who just sacked their manager and had a fitness coach in charge, personally I couldn’t care about the blue half of Glasgow. We have enough problems ourselves, basic errors are killing us in europe, last night we didn’t play that badly in fact right up until the 1st goal I was pleased with how it was going but again stupid errors kill all our good work. We need a new keeper, right back and centre back, possibly another striker too. Get them in jan and build for next seasons qualifiers now so we don’t have the same crap we had in the summer
Rangers have 5 points and top the group. celtic have 3 and can't even raise a performance. It is not good enough.

What relevance have they to us in relation to European performances? Easier group, opposition teams in disarray. We can still qualify (looking unlikely), they have won very few matches in Europe this year and will struggle to qualify.
We are second in the league, they are fifth.
