McGregor misses next 2 games after charge upheld. No action for McGinn or Simunevic (however its spelt? ) . This witch-hunt is getting out of hand now.

Agree7 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 15:25:57
The club needs to make a stance against the sfa. McGregors incident was no worse than the other ones that were dismissed yesterday, and the 2 celtic players tackles. The hypocrisy and sheer bias against Rangers is blatantly obvious! We, as a club, should withdraw from sfa promotional events, players should withdraw from Scotland squads etc until this mess gets sorted out!

13 Feb 2019 16:13:11
the SfA and there compliance officer are a complete joke not defending our keeper and our striker but worse challenges have gone unpunished by the SFA consistency is key and the woman compliance offer is not showing that in her decisions any other job you would get sack for making wrong decisions but not at the SFA she is failing in her role.

13 Feb 2019 20:09:30
Angus Ger - I totally agree we need to make a stance - there must be a way to hit them were it hurts “the pocket” . Also agree that the club should remove all players from all levels of national team until this farce is addressed. Celtic kicked up a stink over refs and we ended up with a strike and a Celtic minded compliance officer!
Why can’t we do something similar. Fed up just accepting whatever is thrown at us. Time to react.

13 Feb 2019 14:35:53
Cannot believe Mcgregor charge upheld 2 game ban. Absolutely shocking given power mcginn and simonvic no action
SFA total shambles not helped with another Lawell puppet in place as compliance officer.

Agree4 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 15:08:23
Totally agree, seems to be different rules for Rangers players! I would expect the club to call the sfa out on this, it simply cannot continue this blatant bias against our club, we need to stand up to the totally inept authorities!

13 Feb 2019 15:09:32
Shagger was guilty of dangerous play, but he wasn’t the only one in that game, young Ferguson is no saint, then Jack gets a kick on the side of the face and that seems ok, McInness and Clark make statements to “ help “ the CO and SFA to make up her minds, usually I don’t believe in conspiracy theories, but there’s a good case for it here? Probably it’s just me being bias?

Brown envelope on its way to Clare Whyte from PL?

13 Feb 2019 19:12:36
Green envelope 'tosh.

Guys I tried this a few years ago on here n got a good response so want to try again.
With the money now in football basicly ruining the game for 90 % of all teams, surely this cannot continue. how long till the first billion pound player? My idea is simple . Gather the past 3 years of stats for every player. I mean everything, passes, tackles, interceptions and so on n so on. depending on your stats u are worth a set amount and get paid a set amount. for talking sake Ronaldo, Messi, Mbappe, Neymar level one worth say 50 million quid n get paid 300 grand a week. Level 2, players like bale Kane pogba and so on say 49.5 million n get paid 280 g a week. Obviously smarter minds than mine could make it work . i just think players would bust a gut to try n raise their levels n stats to get up the ladder . what ye think guys?

I think that's pretty much how it works already mate. It's just that the markets decide who is worth what instead of some arbitrary number cap. Supply and demand.
You would have to bring an end to capitalism to change that.

13 Feb 2019 08:31:33
so sign a player on 10k a week then his stats improve drastically and he demands pay way above his initial 10k what happens if the club can't afford to pay that?

13 Feb 2019 08:51:58
As a said guys I’m sure smarter people than me could come up with somethin similar. Pretty sure ye get the jist of it though.

13 Feb 2019 08:54:08
I also understand that player power takes over but surely somethin has to happen b4 the arse falls out the game.

13 Feb 2019 10:10:23
Gersdaft has a decent argument? Not only do prima Donna players want more than they are worth but they mix it with other players and make it hard for the manager, just because they can’t get what they want all of the time. Jose’ at Chelsea, Conte at Chelsea, Jose’ at United, Lennon at Hibs are just a few. It’s a good debate started by Gersdaft.

13 Feb 2019 10:38:40
In an ideal world (or dictatorship etc. )
However, we live, for the most part, in a free democratic society where it's a case of supply and demand.
That is why Sky and other sponsors pump more money down south and into large European leagues, why Germany, Italy, Spain and England get 4 automatic CL places.
Even in Scotland, Rangers, Celtic etc. command more revenue than the other clubs.
Is it fair, NO. But is a fact of life. Even the crappy financial fair play rule - designed to help create a more equal playing field - is basically laughed at and ignored by those big clubs. UEFA know that if they flex their muscles too much then the big clubs will walk away along with all the sponsorship deals etc. (would love to see that happen mind you and let us get back to real football and real fairer play)

13 Feb 2019 11:51:23
I would suggest a set max weekly wage and a set max transfer fee, with a % of the transfer fee going to the football nations association putting money into lower levels and younger players.
Now a player could make a lot more money via sponsors but those sponsors can have no ties to the club he plays for ie if you sign for us nike will pay you an extra £20,000 if you wear there boots.
Say a max wage of £80,000 and a max transfer fee of £10,000,000.
The agents are getting silly money, i understant they get the paper work done but the money they command it stupid.

13 Feb 2019 12:24:20
unfortunately its supply and demand laced with Bosman rules. this is the basis of capitalised society. if someone is willing to pay they players get what the want. you cannot have everyone paying the same, that's called cartelling and totally illegal in the modern world. i know you say fixed grades with different salaries within the grade but its still the same rules that apply.

13 Feb 2019 12:36:50
Cheers for the comments guys. i do appreciate that this model probably couldn’t work due to stopping the players right to earn. But still surely somethin must be done because in the next ten years every nation except the big four leagues will turn into obscurity. money is killing the game I love . Now the old firm will only ever get great players very young and untested on the way up, or very old n over the hill on their way down. never will we see a laudrup, Hately, gazza or the likes again in their absolute prime. there has to be a model that works for all!

13 Feb 2019 12:41:35
So if a 50mil bid came in for mbappe the club offers him 300k p/ w would the club have to accept it? I can't see how that's workable.

13 Feb 2019 13:03:23
The only reason we had Gazza and Laudrup was because we were paying silly money and the other SPL teams couldn't compete. Let's be honest would they have aged in Scotland if similar money was offered in England?

Great times in the 90s but we are as much to blame for the financial bubble as anyone else.

13 Feb 2019 17:19:08
It's not illegal, sure that a few sports have salary csps.

13 Feb 2019 18:21:39
I’ve said this before on here and on the Celtic pages. We all have to stop subscribing to SKY, BT Sport etc. The majority of the money we give them benefits teams in England and makes it harder for us to compete in the transfer market. If we all stop subscribing and demand a ‘Scottish only’ package, they will realise that they have to pay us the a proper fee to get it and the SFA/ SPFL should demand that our games are only available through the ‘ ‘Scottish only’ package.

13 Feb 2019 20:19:22
Totally agree Coybig. I am dropping my subscriptions to both Sky and BT, there is too much football on TV and too much fans money available to them, it is just a vicious spiral.

14 Feb 2019 00:51:35
Stats prove nothing a couple years a Mr S Brown from a Glasgow franchise had the best passing stats in the champions league. End of story.

12 Feb 2019 20:11:10
anyone have any knowledge of premier sports screening the cup replay? Can't see anything on their site yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 20:46:57
I went on to look as well and they have confirmed game times for tv quarter finals but not stated what games they are covering- on sat 2nd they are showing a game at 445pm and on sun 3rd they are showing a game at 130pm - so they are showing 2 games that weekend but what they are is unknown at this time -.

12 Feb 2019 21:57:45
If we get through to face Aberdeen, is it an even split with tickets?

13 Feb 2019 16:30:01
Away team in cup ties entitled to ten per cent of capacity as a minimum.

13 Feb 2019 17:33:02
Cheers Jboy.

12 Feb 2019 18:49:55
The compliance officer is a lady procurator fiscal, who as far as I know has never kicked a ball in her puff. So what do you expect the decisions to be. Obviously nobody could come out and say that or they would be up in front of the compliance officer.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 19:39:53
Can the Compliance person get done for stalking or something? ? She only seems to watch one team (which is a dead giveaway she's a Celtic supporter, )

12 Feb 2019 21:06:38
I thought know one was to know who compliance officers were?!

12 Feb 2019 21:49:40
The SfA do not have a clue how to run football they make the rules up as they go along.
When they appointed a compliance officer why did they not just appoint someone that has been involved in football like a ex referee.
Or have a panel of 3 people maybe two ex referee and one independent person and look at the incidents together then talk and have a vote if any action has to been tain against the players and what the punishment should be. To get someone that doesn't no about football is just plain stupid and this is why we are seeing so many mistakes by the one person.

12 Feb 2019 21:41:18
Her husband is season ticket holder at Parkhead.

12 Feb 2019 22:31:35
Im sure I read she was on liewells payroll sits on the same board of some company mabey wrong!

12 Feb 2019 23:52:09
The compliance officer should be a non-scot, with no affiliation to any club. Perhaps someone who has just emerged from the Amazon who has no previous connection to civilisation.

12 Feb 2019 23:37:16
and her firm works for celtic.

13 Feb 2019 07:42:23
It is really unbelievable, but not surprising. If it were made into a film it would need to be classed as a fantasy. No wonder Scottish football is a laughing stock everywhere else except here. I'm certainly not laughing.

13 Feb 2019 13:52:53
The whole process has been a farce but has anyone actually found proof that she has association with the dark side? Some of the stuff I've seen about this woman has been first class paranoia. I'm not denying anything but there's been a few fans jumping to large conclusions. Hard to take digs about Celtic fans being conspiracy obsessed when there's enough of it in our own ranks. Again I stress I'm not defending her because she's made a complete arse of things.

So, the Kilmarnock player gets away with his assault on Ryan Jack due to "insufficient evidence". What more f*****g evidence is needed than the picture we've all seen. What an absolute disgrace. You kick someone in the head in the street and the police would give you the jail.

Agree6 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 17:41:22
Absolutely disgusting to use that to cover up the complete incompetence of the sfa. this is a witch hunt against us. no two ways about it . they are a disgrace . sooner a vote to oust this corrupt lot happens the better. backhanders must be rife amonest the liars.

12 Feb 2019 17:45:31
SirStruth, it will be interesting now if any action is taken against Greegs!

12 Feb 2019 18:09:17
I don't get the mcgregor situation I thought if the ref saw it at the time and took no action that was the end of it.

12 Feb 2019 18:26:08
those were the rules me2

but they’ve now been ‘changed’ .

12 Feb 2019 18:34:39
In light of the Powee decision, if they go ahead and confirm the ban on McGregor it would be an absolute disgrace and corrupt to the core.

12 Feb 2019 19:37:46
McGregor deserves suspension deliberate high foot could have crippled young Ferguson.

12 Feb 2019 19:48:29
Well hopefully now people like Steve Clarke will now see that not everything is going against his side. Power didn't mean to hurt Jack, but it was his decision to go with his foot rather than his head is that put Jack in danger of being badly injured. Exactly the same thing as McGregor so here we are CONSISTENCY is what we all seek, let's see if the McGregor decision is in line with that of other events.

12 Feb 2019 20:01:22
Have no doubts that moves are afoot to expose Clare Whyte and have fewer doubts that she'll hand over to another Celtic supporter in the pay of PL before it hits the fan.

12 Feb 2019 20:49:58
6 counties - mcgregor caught the ball fairly unlike ferguson who later on caught mcgregors balls unfairly with his foot.

12 Feb 2019 23:11:46
Shouting about conspiracy theories is better left to that lot guys. Its not what we do.

Other teams have had some baffling decisions go for and against them and we've won some before perhaps that could have been questionable.

However, I do agree that there needs to somehow to work things to offer a fairer and more consistent system.

Maybe a few people should shown footage and they vote to take it forward, clubs could then have the opportunity to challenge decisions if they feel their is a lack of consistency buy comparing situations.

13 Feb 2019 12:40:31
quite simple they should remove this clause about whether its intended to hurt or injure. that way its clear, you hit someone with studs up its a red card. if you take a swipe at someone whether you connect or not its a red card. and whilst you are at it, any shirt pulling or off the ball incident or otherwise is yellow simples.

12 Feb 2019 14:14:41
This carry on with the MORONS at the SFA reminds me of the famous line from Kenneth Williams in Carry on Cleo. INFAMY INFAMY EVERYONES GOT IT INFAMY LOL.
