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.

Canít believe folk donít want Mourinho. The man is box office and would be able to attract some decent players and the ten would be guaranteed. It wouldnít be guaranteed under NL.

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

f**k me wasnít that long ago Ronnie Deila was the manager FFS!

My thoughts exactly. I laughed when I read people saying heís a terrible choice after saying a few weeks ago that they need a big name manager like Brendan. They donít come much bigger than Josť and people still arenít happy. Ffs he was one of the best managers in the world and Iíd say heíll do well with Celtic. Celtic fans are hard to please. What a statement of intent from the board but I donít believe it. I canít see Josť 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.

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.
