Excellent today.  Forrest got MOTM but Rogic pulled the strings and put them on a plate for him. Big 2 domestic games v Hibs and Hearts after the break. Bring it on!


Rogic and Forrest linked beautifully. Brilliant performance. Thank God.

Wouldn't get to worried about Hearts but Hibs will be a toughie, Lennon's teams are always hard to beat.

Needed not only the result but a 5 star performance.  That was important. Hopefully that'll boost the confidence in the team now. Pity there's the break for internationals now - would have liked another game before them to see how it'd go.

Celtic a weaker side this year. Match winning players out and average players brought in. Eduard is no Dembele and while I think Ntcham is as honest as the day is long, he lacks the flair and creativity we need in midfield. Lustig is there for the taking by any half decent winger.

I think we'll still win the league and one of the cups so it's not a disaster but simply put I think Rogers has been stroked. It took Rangers to beat Celtic that one time for the board to go out and spend big dough. We are in serious danger of resting on our laurels. We need to use our financial advantage to crush Rangers and I can't see us doing that.

Roger is still the man to do it but he needs the investment. Celtic have the dough.

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

We're def. not good enough for Campions League and will struggle to qualify in Europa League - that's the level Celtic are at. Scottish league is a poor enough league so teams can't expect to do well in Europe regardless of who their teams play nowadays.

They didn't invest in summer - as a matter of fact it was a mess. As I stated before board though they could squeeze through to another champions league group stage without investing. They got badly caught out. Will be difficult to qualify now in Europa League.  The gamble failed miserably. The board also think they'd win league again without much investment - which they should do but tighter than expected I think.

As you say, new investment needed: keeper, right back and centre back. A forward also. Celtic have too many average players on their books....not playing but on decent wages.  They need to go and keep a smaller panel but more quality.  Supplement this with youth team players should be the way to go in my opinion.

Rangers have 5 points and top the group. celtic have 3 and can't even raise a performance. It is not good enough.

It’s not good enough but its no surprise, I wonder is there a team out there that has a worse record away from home in Europe than Celtic, just have no confidence in them getting a result

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.

Was in the balance until the Hearts goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal gifted the 2nd goal.

Rangers have not won a major title now in 7 years. In this time Celtic have won 7 leagues, 3 Cups and 3 League Cups.  A 13 title gain.

Rangers on 115 are only 10 Domestic titles ahead of Celtic on 105. Before they went bust they were 23 ahead.

On League titles - Rangers have 54 and Celtic 49. The Gap is 5 and was was 12 before they went bust.
