Andy Robertson scored a cracker for Scotland tonight.

Was also at fault for the Cyprus goal. However, definitely a stand out in that Scottish team. Only McGregor and Fraser come close in terms of ability.

Well said North Antrim. Ye tip in to fb twitter and on here to see the craic etc and when ye come on here ye get readin a bitta sense and then the ballbag and/or his sidekick comes on with their bullshit and ye say fcuk this

Unfortunately it happens on all the soccer threads. Some Liverpool fans see fit to come onto the Celtic thread and bullshit!
Nowt wrong with a bit of ribbing but when the likes of your man OTB and others jam the thread with constant snideness it becomes boring as f**k.

Some clowns on here trying to wind up or just spew up crap they read somewhere else...

NL has been offered the job because Celtic feel he's the best candidate available to them, too many people judging him and they don't know him or anything about him. They'll be lining up next season waiting on Celtic to lose their first match so they can say "told you so".  He's a very intelligent guy who knows what he's doing, judge him when the season is over next year when they've played his way and his players...Ohh and being a Catholic from the North of Ireland doesn't make him sectarian or a bigot.
AFAICS, for the most part Celtic supporters judge Neil Lennon on his capability to be the next Celtic manager for the next 2 years and for the most part he was by far the less desired candidate. This had nothing to do with  a knowing or not knowing,  because knowing or not knowing has fck all to do with it, yet you keep bringing up or alluding to that you know the real Neil Lennon or that somehow knowing his inner goodness equates to qualifying as being suitable  as the next Celtic manager.
Personally I have a respect Neil Lennon and on a managerial aspect I even think he did an incredible job at Bolton to keep them up when all and sundry said they were a doomed team. 
But now that he has been given the job the discussion is over and I hope he lives up to the big task ahead.

The big task? They’ve won all before them domestically for years while Rangers were kicked out, they’ve had it easy. Rangers Aberdeen and the rest shouldn’t count even if they keep the same team.

No competition in Scotland? Granted Celtic should have, and did, win the league for the past 8 seasons. Cups are a different matter. As far as I can see Celtic lost a few league games over the course of this season. In one off games anything can happen which makes the treble treble remarkable. It hasn't been done anywhere before. Man utd with their unfair advantage in the 90's didn't do it, Barca haven't done it, PSG and Man City financially doped  haven't done it.

f**king hell!
Some blow ins to this thread. Stop reading and believing the media crap about NL or Broonie. Actually take time to watch Scottish football and then come back and comment.
Didn't want Lennon again but let's hope he has learned from past experience. Recruitment is key as past two transfer windows have been diabolical, although I have high Hopes for Shved and to a lesser extent Bayo.

Rarely watched Celtic but watched this. Tough enough game but just had a wee bit more quality. Good finish from Eduardo.

Scott brown is hard to like. Doesn’t really cover himself in glory with his behaviour.


Odd comment!
Amazing achievement to win 9 trophies on the bounce. Enjoyed that even if the nerves were shredded.

Steve Clarke just announced as new Scotland manager so that's a free run for Jose or Rafa!   ;D

Or Moysey  ;D ;D
The money continuing to pile in on Moyes heading to Celtic, has been cut from 5/1 into 10/11.

Which of course means f**k all. There have been various short priced candidates this time and Moyes was short odds before Rodgers was appointed.

Of that team that started today the only first team regulars next year will be Simunovic, Ajer, McGregor, Edouard and possibly Brown and Bain and Rogic if he can stay fit. Considering the injuries, the rat leaving and the abject transfer policy we still won the league without hitting top form at just about anytime this season.

If you look at the past twenty or so years, the managers brought in initially had the team playing the traditional freeflowing passing game, to obvious various degrees of success. Some of these hires were risks, and didn't work out, some did
Brendan Rodgers- Free flowing football- great coach
Ronny Deila - Free flowing football- not so great coach
Neil Lennon - Pragmatic Football- aggressive style- Good coach
Tony Mowbray - Not there long enough
Gordon Strachan- Pragmatic Football- aggressive style- Good coach
Martin O'Neill - Pragmatic Football- aggressive style- Great coach
John Barnes- Free flowing football- not so great coach? Lack of investment
Jozef Venglos- Free flowing football- great coach, not there long enough
Wim Jansen - Free flowing football-  great coach, not there long enough
Tommy Burns - Free flowing football- great coach, not there long enough

I thought MON was regarded as a super motivator but not a great coach (and did very little coaching)?

Anyone remember why was Jansen sacked? Or did he walk? Maybe I'm misremembering, but he seemed to be really good, and then all of a sudden he was gone and never heard tell of again!

He will be forever revered for stopping ten IAR and for signing Henrik.
Fall out with Brown and McCann. Brown had fanciful ideas about his status and importance.

Can’t believe folk don’t want Mourinho. The man is box office and would be able to attract some decent players and the ten would be guaranteed. It wouldn’t be guaranteed under NL.

Agree!! Might even make them competitive in Europe again. . . Do Celtic think they’re Barcelona??

f**k me wasn’t that long ago Ronnie Deila was the manager FFS!

My thoughts exactly. I laughed when I read people saying he’s a terrible choice after saying a few weeks ago that they need a big name manager like Brendan. They don’t come much bigger than José and people still aren’t happy. Ffs he was one of the best managers in the world and I’d say he’ll do well with Celtic. Celtic fans are hard to please. What a statement of intent from the board but I don’t believe it. I can’t see José going to the Scottish league.

There is history! His Porto team were experts in cheating and time wasting. Long memories.
That said if we can entice a manager of his calibre it would be a big step beyond the rat in terms of stature.

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.
