Billy McNeill, not the greatest Celtic player, not the greatest Celtic manager BUT most definitely the greatest Celtic captain and possibly the greatest Celt of all time.

I know people will say that i'm biased because i know NL personally but all i'm saying (not defending him) is give him a chance and if he doesn't take his chance and he's not up to the task then give him a few quid and thank him for his efforts and move him on...Simple. I'm a Celtic fan first and I want whats best for Celtic but i'm prepared to give NL a chance and see how he performs, what's annoying me is people don't want him for the job without letting the fella have a proper go (their minds were made up the first day he took over).
To give him a chance means give him the job for another season? or give him a chance to see how Celtic win the treble this season and beat Rangers at Ibrox?

Give him a boot up his ginger hole and remind him how he let a bankrupt Rangers beat Celtic to the title 9 years ago, only for which they would now have 9 in a row instead of 8.

Apart from the fact liquidation followed the next season and they were still benefitting from being financially doped that season you are spot on!

BS.  If you are suggesting that Rangers squad was better than Celtic's you are deluded.   The writing was on the wall long before liquidation and most of the best players sold on. Lennon and Brown got blindsided by a personal spat with  El Hadji Diouf and blew a league title they should have won easily.

You appear to have forgotten what went on that season as tonto said.
To refresh your memory, https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.theguardian.com/football/2010/nov/28/dougie-mdconald-scottish-referee&ved=2ahUKEwik_4a5n9nhAhXbQRUIHWTyDogQFjABegQIBBAB&usg=AOvVaw1i5SNxWCW1h74wpiMONb3N
We would have needed to be streets ahead not JUST better to have won the league that year.

Glad you, and especially the wee fella, enjoyed the day. The result matters but the overall experience usually seals it. That's him hooked now hopefully. Too easy for the young ones to be swept up with the English football.

Considering Celtic are 11 points ahead and if we keep playing like that we are likely to win our next two matches, so second game after the split.
Seriously, the magic number is 5 points more needed. So if we keep drawing, remember Celtic haven't lost a domestic game this year, and they keep winning, a draw at Ibrox in the second last game would do the trick! Likelihood is that we will win it first or second after the split.

Flying into Glasgow tomorrow, bringing my son to his first Celtic Game.

Arriving at 10:30, any tips what to do before the game with the wee lad.

Not easy getting kids into to Bar if you want a beer or 2.... I took my kids to Celtic Superstore and then to the pre match entertainment at Celtic park... all very handy..

 http://www.celticfc.net/hospitality/kerrydalebar

Would echo this. Food, entertainment and drink before and after match.
Depends on your actual ETA at Celtic Park but should be able to easily pass a couple of hours there before kick off.
Would also advise to get to your seats half hour before to let the wee one soak up all the pre match goings on!
In town you probably won't have much time for anything other than visiting a few sports or toy shops!

Liverpool and Man Utd fans appear to be quickest to rear their heads in this thread when 'controversy' arises. No sense of irony either.

Agenda anyone? Laughable how certain links or "experts" are posted without research into why said rhetoric is espoused.
Go infest another thread.

There's no doubt we have our scummy fans, that can't be denied.
My issue is with blaming the players or fans generally for what happened hours afterwards away from the ground. Those attacks were by thugs, because they are violent t**ts. Sectarianism, football, players behaviour (no Celtic player did anything wrong by the way), none of that gives reason or excuses the violence.

There is no doubt that people were stabbed because they were Celtic supporters. The attacks were carried out by seriously violent people. They did not do it because of what went on at a football match. They did it because they are hate filled individuals. Why do incidents like this happen in Scotland after a Glasgow Derby only? They don't is the true answer but that doesn't suit the narrative. If you believe otherwise then you are naive or working to an agenda.
More supporters are arrested percentage wise at Birmingham City matches than at any other UK ground. I suppose Jack Grealish shouldn't be so good! What happened to provoke the Roma fans to attack several Liverpool fans last year? That's just two examples, there's plenty more. Maybe we should just ban soccer matches?
What is happening in Scotland is nothing other than outright thuggery.

Ok. Calling out the overt sectarianism around this fixture is now trolling. Ok. Got it.

Iíve been to Celtic park
Many times and feel a strong affinity to their Irish and charitable origins.
That said, there are elements of the old firm rivalry which are dangerous and unattractive.
Scott Brownís  interviews are often hilarious and heís proven himself to be a winner , but like all old firm
Players , he has a responsibility not to provoke . It appears There is a man fighting for his life and a family in distress because of injuries incurred related to the old firm yesterday. Thatís reality. Celtic have much better resources and a much better team and I was delighted with the win, but Scott Brownís behaviour yesterday left a lot to be desired .
Iím absolutely delighted for Neil Lennon particularly, but Brown should remember that Neil and others have suffered enormously as a result of sectarianism, and I hope all of us genuine Celtic fans are big enough to analyse Scott Brownís behaviour yestersday, and though itís hard not to have a laugh and enjoy his goading of our rivals, we must be big enough to admit that itís not what Celtic is.about , as an institution .

That's pathetic. Brown is in no way responsible for what went on in town yesterday.
If some maniac wants to knife someone it wasn't because of what Brown did.
Gerrard's comment after the game about Halliday wanting to "protect his own people " was more dangerous.

That was shithousery of Ramos/Pepe proportions yesterday from Brown!!

2 men sent off and there should have been a 3rd is a good days work.

The players really need to take responsibility for their actions in these games. A sectarian cesspit is being inflamed and made a hell of a lot worse by Celtic and Rangers. Time they coped on.

Away on and troll elsewhere you waste of space. Get  a fecking job ffs.

Exactly. Footballers step over a line sometimes but that does not give excuse or justify what went on after.

They could afford it but the chances of paying it would be slim to say the least, Kent is decent all right!!

Kent played well yesterday but there is a reason he is at Rangers on loan (look at his loan history).
Celtic only spend £8m on the likes of Edouard.

Have a ticket for Sunday but it was just sprung on me and i've to try and find a way over...

Think Celtic will win 3-0 on Sunday, there could be a sending off or two. I expect Sevco to have someone sent off and therefore we'll win 3-0. If it stays 11 v 11 then i'll go for a 2-0 or 2-1 to Celtic...

Forrest to score first...

I'll have your ticket if you can't make it!  ;D
One thing for sure it will be nothing like the last one.
Poor decisions all round that day. I'll take 4-0.

Big game tomorrow... with Aberdeen making statements about beating Celtic in Celtic Park!

The hibs drawing with the huns has further dented their bandwagon, so a home victory tomorrow puts the Celts 10 points ahead and really would be a Devon loch-esque collapse to lose the league from there.

Win today and following two matches against Livi and sevco and we will be at least 13 ahead. Effectively we can win the league at home against " Steven Gerrard's Rangers".
