Back to my usual gripe re mr Warburton plans on u20's he maintains it is more beneficial for them to be on loan at league 1 and 2 sides playing semi full time and having our U20's languishing bottom half of developement league using younger boys. then i see the celtic youths playing in prestigious tournaments against top european and english U20's teams and doing well. E. g. Beating aston villa last night surely this instills confidence and a winning mentality in these young guys and it doesn't seem to hinder their ability to be competitive in the dev league either. i feel our boys are missing out on these opportunities as they will never be invited to such tournaments if they continue with poor results locally and stay in the nether regions of their own league. rant over.

wouldn't surprise me if warburton leaves in january along with barton.

jonnyg - its not a rant. its a very valid and sensible point. Our loanees would be far better playing in the under 20-s and learning a winning mentality which is so much more positive and worthwhile, AND a valuable asset to have when expected to step up a level to the first team squad. I personally don't rate Warburton in this particular area, and so far his oveall choice of signings is quite baffling too.

Thanks wee bill i just can't fathom out how warburton is bucking the trend of every other scottish team with this model. loan them to champ english teams yes but lower scottish league teams to me means they will be punted long before any of them can show any promise or be good enough for rangers first team so many wasted opertunities for the young guys who will come back end of season to be told rhey are not good enough. Warburton claims he doesn't watch the oppositions games very often so whars the chances he ever takes in a loanees game?

Sorry but i have to disagree. every single top academy employs the same format. Barca/ Southampton/ Spurs/ Arsenal/ Bayern/ Dortmund. They all ship their 19/ 20/ 21 year olds out on loan and have 16/ 17/ 18yr olds competing at U20 level. This is a proven strategy that works. It gives players on the cusp of 1st team action real week by week experience of the pressures of first time and it gives younger kids the experience of playing players who are older/ fitter/ stronger than them and how to deal with those situations.
5.) 10 Nov 2016 11:33:38
they are playing against bigger, older, stronger players. the main problem with scotland is our youngster when they hit 20 21 don't progress they don't work harder and try and push themselves like guys in England and abroad do, they stay the same. players at that age need to bulk up get faster and stronger.
how you can think Warburton signings are poor is just mad, he has had to basically put together a completely new team in 18 months obv course there willl be bad signings.

Celtics academy and development players get loaned out to but are still available to play in the CL youth cup and the premier league international matches like the one against Aston villa last night.

Anyone notice that epl team with the £18 million strike force. you know the one that taught us a lesson pre season and everybody on hear raving about " not playing that calibre of team week in week out " are languishing 2nd bottom of epl. and before anyone says its only first game think of those on here ranting about being top of spfl after 2 games and leading our deadliest rivals by 1 point with them having a game in hand with partick thistle. its a long haul and let's see where we are at the mid point.

What a load of nonsense. Have u been on the gut rut!
2.) 14 Aug 2016 18:03:54
Watched the Burnley game. They were unlucky. single fish again for you buddy.
3.) 14 Aug 2016 18:44:08
We beat Chelsea in a friendly a few years ago, friendlies mean sweet f a.
4.) 14 Aug 2016 18:44:32
rangers and celtic wouldn't even win the championship never mind do anything in the top league.
5.) 14 Aug 2016 18:51:09
Did you think about that before ye wrote it? Absolute drivvel.
6.) 14 Aug 2016 19:01:15
What a rubbish attempt of putting the club down.
7.) 14 Aug 2016 20:15:07
Absolute waste of a post! Plus wasted everyone's time who actually read it.
26 Mar 2016 16:55:24
6 goals conceded in 2 weeks . not good enough even with 3 points today. defence needs tightening before we take on the east end mob.
06 Mar 2016 16:53:28
Celtic in the semis.
1.) 06 Mar 2016 16:59:21
Great draw would have liked them in the final but the semis will have to do.
2.) 06 Mar 2016 17:08:59
Brilliant news should be plenty of tickets available, as they who couldn't care a less about us, albeit being obsessed with us, won't want anything to do with such a game, they've obviously got against most clubs who go to cesspit park cause they won't turn up to watch them either, BRING IT ON 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩.

uefa club co-efficient rankings out today have us at 269th. equal to Dundee United with Celtic 51st. IF and when we qualify for Europe we will be entering very very early in the competition. at a great disadvantage having to play quite a few qualifying rounds. thoughts?
1.) 21 Feb 2016 15:19:37
Not really a lot to think about pal. If that's where we are what you going to do?
2.) 21 Feb 2016 18:12:06
first of all we have to qualify for Europe
then we need fresh blood as most of the players
we have would not be good enough to compete in europe.
3.) 21 Feb 2016 19:28:18
We have to qualify for Europe in any event and on the plus side neither McCoist or Delia is our manager so we have every opportunity to progress!

Billy -p . having faith is one thing but i am a realist. big money backers next year? don't think so fat arseing about with £100,000 bids eventually getting close to the mark after about 2 weeks of haggling. legal bills rising, no share issue and not one likely for some time, living on loans to keep the lights on still in the clutches of Ashley. as opposed to celtic. Not good in europe but still cashed in on euro gates and tv money, top dollar sponsorship, extra domestic tv money and prize money for premier teams, that is what makes me think they will have more money to spend than us IF they choose to obviously. this week 1.5M + wages on Danish international. I can't see your big money backers putting too much in for free. or on the promise of shares if and when we can issue them.
17 Jan 2016 12:47:47
Barrymiddleton. aye like he is ripping celtics defemce to shreds just now while playing for a premiership team who incidently tore us a new one. check the st J scores against celtic . and as for their defence have you looked at their goals against. some on here thinl we are going to steam roller them next season
. sorry but I think a lot of disappointed bears. they will strengthen in summer in preparation for us and don't forget they have more money to spend than we will.

Head in sand syndrom Cee. don't believe because you don't want to believe. its well documented that wi fi comp are in court looking for ring fence to be extended from dec 31st to next year. where is evidence of counter suit from Rangers.
rangers lawyer even defending saying more lending is in place so please don't ring fence £300,000.
12 Jan 2016 15:50:52
To WhatATeam also according to stv there was An arrestment warrent issued on dec 31st due to non payment to wi fi company and as the case is not likely to be finalised until next year that is why ring fence has been applied for. so nonsensense no. non disclosure of financial facts to the loyal support yes.
12 Jan 2016 14:47:31
Some claiming rangers should counter sue the wi fi company as it has not been working for some time! According to STV Virgin Media stopped supplying due to non payment of bills. maybe this is why war chest not getting opened . it isn't there! . Is Big Wull available for comment on these revelations as he is quick to point out how rosie our finances are .

Remind me what our goal difference is! With our 1.8 million pound striker
05 Mar 2017 14:38:16
Stewie25 the point I was making was on here people laughed at celtic spending big money on sinclair and big wages on dembele where as we were picking up gems via the hats contacts and the joke was we will destroy them with a team costing less than 1 of their players. well I am saying the joke was on us. Rossiter was wanted by epl teams but we got him for 250,000 bargain. played 3 games who the hell wanted him? All our bargain signings are just that. 1.8 my for garner 7 goals not a justifiable return. these players either have to improve drastically or move on but who will pay the money for them? Where do we get the money for replacements?
05 Mar 2017 06:21:35
Dunoonbluebear they don't need to buy another dembele for £500,000 if he goes. you forget they have the money to buy a striker for x millions if need be. People laughed on here at them spending 3.5 million on a nobody from Aston villa ( sinclair) 17 goals later and excellent performances shows what you get for that money. You say a new manager will have us close . not without a clear out and new players which we cannot afford as I said to you on the celtic posts take off the blue specs and see where we are and how far we have to go to be close and that's without them strengthening which they will. they paid millions for a young guy in Jan and he is a future project if we spend anything he has got to be good enough to walk into the team and make a big big impact and you don't get that with the money we can spend
06 Feb 2017 18:00:58
Ger1.bubble bursting time I believe cl money does not get allocated until after the final so their accounts of 61million before tax do not account for it.
