'Rangers have a huge disciplinary problem' NL

The perfect dig, as it will rile Rangers something shocking and become a self fulfilling prophecy, if they play disciplined it will take the edge of their game.

Some of the more bitter Rangers players may attempt to get Celtic players red-carded and miss the cup final in an attempt to derail the treble-treble. Expect fireworks.

Fair play to NL, the Timmo Weah story is now in full and i kinda think NL was right...It's obvious some of the loan guys aren't putting their shoulder to the wheel the way the signed Celtic players are

TIMOTHY WEAH was asked to pack his bags and leave Celtic yesterday afternoon after he snubbed the opportunity to play in the Scottish Cup Final against Hearts at Hampden on May 25. The popular 19-year-old’s loan from Paris Saint-Germain was cut short to join the USA Under-20 squad for the World Cup in Poland – despite Neil Lennon brockering a deal with his opposite number Tab Ramos which reached a compromise that suited both club and country.

Weah took to Instagram to thank the Celtic fans for their support since he arrived at Parkhead in January and he left the Hoops followers with the promise he would “wish to come back one day to this great club to be with you all”. A day of drama unfolded at Lennoxtown when Weah, who started last weekend’s title-clincher against Aberdeen at Pittodrie, was removed from the squad for tomorrow’s game at Ibrox.

The USA had invited the talented attacker to their training camp after the match against Steven Gerrard’s men to start preparations for the Polish tournament and Head Coach Tab Ramos was prepared to allow Weah to then return to Lennoxtown the week before the Cup Final. The understanding was that the player would then have ample time with the Hoops to prepare for the club’s meeting with the Tynecastle side at the national stadium as they zero in on a historic treble treble.

The agreement between Celtic and the USA coaching staff was that Weah would miss their opening game against Ukraine, but would return to Poland immediately after the Hampden encounter with his country’s next tie against Nigeria due on Monday May 27 and Qatar three days later. But Weah refused the offer and insisted he wanted stay with his national team – prompting Lennon to call time on the youngster’s stay with the interim manager interpreting the decision as a lack of commitment and believed it was best for all parties that he left the squad.

The teenager admitted: “The gaffer told me it is in the best interest of the team that I collect my things and go home.” He added: “I will be joining my national team to participate in the U20 World Cup in Poland. With this decision, the gaffer told me it is in the best interests of the team that I collect my things and go home rather than be a part of the game on Sunday so I’ll be on my way.”

He added: “I still have a lot of growing up to do in my game. I am especially thankful to the Celtic family for giving me the opportunity to show you all what I am capable of doing once given the chance. I want to thank my team-mates for supporting me every step of the way. Thanks so much to Celtic FC and to you the fans for accepting me. “It was a true honour playing for this club and also having the opportunity to interact with legends who paved the way for us. “I am especially thankful to the Celtic family for giving me the opportunity to show you all what I am capable of doing once given the chance. “To you the fans, I will never forget you for all the love, support and kindness you have shown me.

“I don’t know as yet what the future holds but I wish to one day come back to this great club to be with you all. “I will forever miss you chanting my name and hearing the beautiful song you have created for me.” Weah became an instant hit with the Celtic fans when he scored on his debut against St Mirren in the 4-0 Premiership romp and raced to celebrate with the home support. However, his stay at the champions came to an abrupt halt yesterday although Weah appears to have left the door open to a return.

U20's WC is a big deal,  Timothy's a good prospect, I hope he fares better than Roberts in the next few years even if it's not with PSG.

As bad as I’ve seen Celtic play. Massive kick up the hole needed.

If this contuines, more questions for Lennon. Not motivated at all - like last game at Ibrox.

Need a bit of fortune to get back into this game.

Could be a blessing in disguise this match...it shows exactly where Celtic are performance wise...how many points have they picked up in the last few minutes of matches on the road to the title...some quality now required to be added to squad for next season. The managerial decision is also required asap. Momentum is a wonderful thing and slowly Rangers are getting there..Now up to Celtic Board to step up and spend a few pound, the squad was ok to cope with this season but not another.

10 in a row looking dodgy, some major investment required now.  Not doing the 10 in a row would be unforgivable at this stage!  Not looking good now for Lennon’s prospects.

Abysmal display, the only shot on target was a fluffed effort. Lennon at risk of fluffing the treble.

I don't think Lennon is the man to lead Celtic to the 10 in a row. I would love to see him being in charge with him being a local man and a proper Celtic man but I don't think he is good enough to do it. The board need to step up and make significant investment because if massive changes aren't made Rangers will win the league next year. They are still shite but Celtic are now also shite, the difference is Rangers are an improving side under Gerrard and Celtic are getting worse. Rangers fully deserved the victory today.

shocking as they were that was a criminal miss by burke. Get him back to WBA quick and they can send that german right back home as well - he's brutal

Flanagan should have been off for the elbow. Maybe if the ref hadn't sh*t it then it might have made a difference but on the whole the hungrier team won. It doesn't make them world beaters but they are getting better. I really hope Lennon doesn't get the job - he deserves great credit for stepping in and securing the title (and hopefully treble) but he isn't a long term answer

There will be no 9 in a row should Lennon stay on.
You'd hope the next manager is appointed as soon as possible and has time to sign a few players of his choosing.
 Celtic/Rodgers were foolish playing hard ball with Boyata, now he will be gone on a free.
