The transfer business hasn't been bad. The disappointing thing is that we sold Tierney for 25m and failed to reinvest that money in the team.

I think Bauer will be a good signing and it's good we have an option on him. I'm still very dubious about Elhamed and Bolingoli but both were impressive at Ibrox so will hopefully settle in now and up their performances. I think we will probably be able to strike a deal for Forster next summer if he does well, he is 32 and third or fourth choice at Southampton so should be affordable and I think he'll sacrifice some money at this stage of his career to feel valued and get regular games.

The most disappointing thing for me was addressing the left wing position with a loan signing. Elyonoussi is probably a very good player but it's only a short term fix and we have the money to address it long term now. I'm encouraged at some of the signings for the future, it's something we have slacked off with in recent years and hopefully they will do well in the future. All that I have heard about O'Connor is extremely positive.

On Ibrox at the weekend, Edouard was absolutely immense, he's even better than Dembele as far as I'm concerned - a much more rounded player. Jullien was an absolute rock and will be the foundation of our defence. Other than that I was really impressed with Ntcham when he came on, some of his touches were exquisite and he looked hungry.

Things are looking a good bit bright for us now. Fair play to Lennon as well who I've been very critical of.

Well to be fair 99% of people did, i'm one of his supporters and even i asked question about his team selection for Cluj match. Looking back now it's still really disappointing that we didn't make it into CL but we don't know what was going on at that time and who was training well and who wasn't and who was injured/carrying knocks. I still believe it was a bad decision on the night but he'll learn from it, the season can still be a very good one and one to look forward too...Hail Hail

A very good tactically astute performance by Celtic at Rennes, especially after drawing level they kept up with the high press and didn't fall back. It took Celtic about 20 minutes to setttle into the pace of this game. Celtic could hold their own in that league, silky skills and all.

Great performance in a hostile atmosphere against a team that beat PSG a few weeks ago.  Could have won it and ref bought the play-acting by Rennes keeper to send Bayo off, probably off the back of Hayes cleaning yer man out, albeit fairly.

Keeper was a disgrace - never touched.

Hopefully gets a retrospective ban (prob not though)

Add in the penalty not given, 1-1 was a good result.

Not one but two stonewall penalties were waved away today at Easter Road to deny Celtic the win. Meanwhile Rangers are set on their way with the customary penalty award at Ibrox.

I'd love to know just how many penalties they've had over the last few seasons

Servco got double the amount of penalties to Celtic last season!

 That two nil defeat flattered Celtic. At least Jonny Hayes walked off unaided after that two footed assault on his legs.

Can't really have much complaints about the sending off, but losing Christie for 3 games will be a worry as he's playing brilliant.

I don't know why teams don't do it more against Celtic, Livi got in their faces and bullied them and Celtic weren't up for the fight. Teams should do it every week as they'll get away with most of the fouling, big Ajer has had a rocky few weeks and looks like he's going thru a we dodgy spell. Time NL maybe gave him a we rest and a few weeks to get his head right, Sevco will prob win 3-0 or 4-0 today and get top spot at the International break which is not ideal but we have got what we deserved so can't have any complaints...

Sending off was justified too

Need more consistency after Euro games.  Centre defence ropey enough at times - wouldn't inspire you.  Sending off was correct.

I said at time, Defoe was a great buy for Rangers. He's a goalscorer - gets the basic ones.  Great bit of business.
