Im going to say it. VAR. Whether you like var or not for games of this magnitude it has largely got rid of the illegal goals down in England and major competitions. We can't rely on our piss poor refs to produce correct decisions in games like this. Its not sour grapes and i'm sure Celtic supporters would be equally aggrieved if we took the trophy via a clearly offside goal.

Agree5 Disagree0

08 Dec 2019 18:41:14
And what about the penalty we didn't get against the sheep. They day these things even themselves out but we seem to be on the receiving end more than others. Perhaps that's another slice of sporting integrity just for us to enjoy.

08 Dec 2019 18:47:28
It's happened that quick the linesman hasn't clocked it. It's brutal but that's life. It's happens. I just hope the team take this pain and think about it going into every single game for the rest of the season!

08 Dec 2019 19:11:24
C of ibrox happened that quick? At the free kick The linesman only has one job and he bottled it Big Time 3 of them were off and it wasn’t as if they just went early they were always in an offside position awful refereeing also Callum McGregor should have walked and countless attempts to wined up Morelos went unpunished the refereeing in this country is as bad as it’s ever been, well for us it is anyway 🤬.

08 Dec 2019 19:15:05
Im sorry but in my eyes that's a goal. Technically offside but we should have defended it, nobody tried to play him off. The penalty decision midweek however was a huge mistake by the ref where he thought it was a foul but not serious enough to give a pen so he crapped it and gave a foul outside the box. VAR? Not for me.

08 Dec 2019 19:45:57
Jyf in your eyes it’s a goal? wise up man what planet are you on? 3 player in an offside position but it’s a goal and what do you mean nobody tried to play him off we had a tight line 3 of them beyond that line when the ball was played means we did play them offside your so stupid 🤯🤬.

08 Dec 2019 19:57:43
So what you saying? The linesman saw it and never gave it? Away and give yourself peace. We had countless chances and couldn't score, that's why we lost the game. Suck it up. Leave the paranoia to them. Next you will be telling us Wullie Gollum and the linesmen have been spotted in Kitty O'sheas, singing the fields of athenrye on the karaoke.

08 Dec 2019 20:17:10
NO highland bear, i'm not stupid! You could not tell that he was offside in real time and level is onside remember. Three players offside is impossible unless they all went for the ball which they didnt. We are all hurting but the missed pen cost us the game.
I live on planet Earth by the way and a non decision to a very tight call by the linesman was an honest miss no more no less.

08 Dec 2019 20:26:46
It's not even a hard decision jyf from open play. It's a set piece the linesman job is to be on line with last defender. So in the game in your mind if the defenders don't play for offside it doednt get given, even if it is off? That's warped.

08 Dec 2019 20:36:00
Jyf it’s offside, plain and simple. It was an easy call especially from a set piece. Not one but three players were beyond the last defender.

We didn’t lose the game because we didn’t take our chances, we lost the game because an offside goal was ruled ok. That’s the facts of the matter.

We should have had the game wrapped up well before then, but for some great and fortunate goalkeeping.

08 Dec 2019 20:42:59
Tabbed, I also think that Scottish footie should have var, the s. f. a say they can't afore it, it's the occasions like today, and the sheep that more or less should be telling those in charge to find the money to get it done, cozy until it's brought in there always going to be mistakes.

08 Dec 2019 21:23:01
VAR and Morelos would not get on. We were the best team by a mile today and still never won I refuse to blame it on the linesman but of course I understand why some do.

08 Dec 2019 21:55:14
I'm gutted as everyone else. We missed the chances, including a penalty but the fact of the matter is the ref and both linesman missed 1. Their offside goal.
2. 2 stick on penalties
3. Foster a mile of his line at penalty save.
And just like the I'm sorry I made a mistake with Penalty at Aberdeen.
It's just not on.

09 Dec 2019 10:33:53
im definetly saying that bobby maddens linesman pal did see it and never gave it. one but not 3 can be missed.

09 Dec 2019 10:38:28
oh it happened so fast that he was a yard offside before the boy started his run up. but opinions in the realm of fantasy are also opinions.

08 Dec 2019 18:03:20
It's all if buts and maybe's now but fact is gerrard set a game plan perfectly just never took the chances we created. If we keep playing like that we will win a lot more than we will lose. It's hard one to take but please bears the players need us more than ever to pick them up not slate them. Let's not let one injustice of a game derail our season stick together.

Agree8 Disagree0

08 Dec 2019 18:18:04
Agreed mate. Thst was daylight robbery honestly couldn't criticise us today.

08 Dec 2019 18:26:36
we played like this again Aberdeen we have played like this in Europe and now against Celtic we played well but the fact of the matter is the same players keep making same mistakes and until there droped we will be disappointed.
To win games you need to put ball in net and not concede and we seem to fail at both of these not enough quality in the team and that's why we will be runners up.

08 Dec 2019 18:50:00
Craig’s, which players made mistakes today?

Was it McGregor for not reacting at all for the offside goal?

Was it Kent for giving the ball away too much?

Was it Scotland’s top scorer who was denied 2 or 3 stick on goals?

Perhaps you don’t mean those who made mistakes - perhaps it’s the players that you don’t like but our manager sees everyday and trusts to do a job?

08 Dec 2019 19:10:32
Who made mistakes today? Tjot all the lads were terrific today being honest.

08 Dec 2019 19:14:08
DK19 goldson gives needless free kick away cause he wants to leave marker on Edward stupidity no free kick no goal simple as that regardless of offside or not
I like goldson and tav but the last few games these 2 have made mistake after mistake and that why we are getting punished they never get they need tain out team when not playing well but they dont
You can clearly see tav was about to take penalty but bottled it as soon as morelos asked for it least morelos had the guts to stand there and take it and unfortunately missed it for us
DK i respect you for standing up for the team but there is 2 very big mistakes right there for you and regardless what gerrard said penalty taker was not changed he is just trying to defend his captain and take the heat off him cause he bottled it.

08 Dec 2019 19:19:28
DK19 their goal was a terrible defensive blunder was it not? We never defended a simple ball into the box. Who put Morelos on the pen? SG? Who?

08 Dec 2019 19:30:00
Jyf, in his interview Gerrard said that Alfie was the dedicated penalty taker for today. Think he tried to be too clever there instead of just blasting it, but on the replay Forster was about 2-3 yards off his line when he saved it anyway.

08 Dec 2019 18:00:49
I agree Tavernier should have taken the penalty. Guess what? He always goes for the corner. Smash it down the bloody middle.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Dec 2019 18:08:09
I could understand if morelos was desperate pleading to take it but he gave it up so easily, he bottled it and its cost us big time. Time he was dropped.

08 Dec 2019 18:18:04
Cmon stevie g said morelos was nominated before game. Tav had 1 of his better games.

08 Dec 2019 18:43:31
Sorry didn't know that alf had been nominated pre match.

08 Dec 2019 18:48:51
Aye so he was. Gerrard just protecting his best pal while chucking Morelos under the bus.

Tell me this, can you ever picture Tav lifting a trophy with the captain’s armband on? I certainly can’t. Look at him v Scott Brown and you can see the difference.

Jack, Davis or Arfield up against Brown, that’s more like it.

08 Dec 2019 18:51:25
J-zer, give the players and the manager SOME credit for knowing what they are doing instead of sticking to the same old boring criticism.

08 Dec 2019 18:52:31
We were desperately unlucky simple . No matter what you need a little luck in these games . We had little. We played them off the park, and they will still have the problem of complacency. Think this result will stand us in great stead . We are the better team when we are up for it . The league and Scottish cup will change the climate . The league cup? Give them that to add to their complacencies. We had beat them, they would have been frantic in jan market . Different now . they are laughing saying no matter what we can’t win . let’s see . alll the boys were magical today . bad luck that’s all.

08 Dec 2019 18:58:27
Unfortunately the defenders don't know what they are doing as they keep conceeding goals.

08 Dec 2019 19:06:36
Read any of my posts I always back the team. And I have said in other posts well done to the players, but watching Tav hand the ball left a bad taste that he was shirking responsibility.

08 Dec 2019 19:13:13
Tav had a great game today, put in a series of great balls in to the box and defended well, what the heck more do you want of him?

08 Dec 2019 19:23:24
When did I say he didn't play well? said he bottled it until I was informed that he wasn't on penalty duty.

08 Dec 2019 19:51:45
Tav can’t win. If he takes pen and misses he gets it in the neck. When he gives pen to Alfie and he misses Tav still gets blame.

08 Dec 2019 20:39:54
Ha brilliant jaws spot on . I don’t care about this honestly. itv will just add to their complacency and make us more determined . We are by far the better team . but the better team sometimes loses . Barcelona . Man City will back that up . we will shine thru . no matter the score we kn we skellped them the day . bring on the next one.

08 Dec 2019 17:40:36
Gerrard should have avoided the substitutions they were dominant and playing against 10 men patience this time might have paid dividends the subs changed the game for the worse.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Dec 2019 18:11:01
Helander was injured, hence Katic, Kent IMO was not as direct as I would have liked, how many chances does Alfie need against that lot, yes, he was up against a goal keeper at his best today, but two of the shots he took would have been better passed inside in the 1st half, Aribo and Kent were waiting, but they got the goal we didn't, stat's don't win games, goals do. we need an instinctive poacher, I agree Stewart would have been a better option than Defoe today, and Barker I felt did okay when he came on. Goldsons only mistake today was fouling Edourd on the touchline which gave them the free kick they scored from. We must win on Thursday night, nothing else matters time, as it will steady the ship again.

08 Dec 2019 17:36:54
Absolutely not good enough. We played them off the park. had more shot on goal etc etc etc. they scored and we didn't. they won, we didn't. they're qualified for Europe, we're not. they're top of the league, we're not. Almost isn't good enough. Katic has to play. Is everyone blind. We're too slow at the back . Stevie has to put on Stewart in future games. What the f is this favouritsm.

Agree4 Disagree0

08 Dec 2019 17:40:35
Totally agree.

08 Dec 2019 17:43:38
How can you call for Katic. Our defense were superb today they scored an offside goal.

08 Dec 2019 17:44:20
Think yourself lucky he didn’t throw Ohno on! Subs were a mistake patience may have produced a goal we were playing well against 10 men the subs were hopeless.

08 Dec 2019 17:47:30
I’ve said since the start of last season we will NEVER win a trophy with Tav as captain. Was hoping I would be proven wrong today, but sadly not the case. Stevie G’s loyalty to the likes of him and Goldson will cost him his job and the chance to manage Liverpool in the future. Celtic will win the treble this season, we’ll stick with Gerrard, he’ll stick with those two idiots then we’ll eventually fire him this time next year when we’re too far behind in the title race for a new manager to do anything about it.

08 Dec 2019 17:48:56
It doesn't matter a jot if we played them off the park. We played Aberdeen of the park in the first half, then dropped points. Yes there goal was off side, we cannot score from 10 yards and cannot beat 10 men. We are not clinical enough and the longer we play like this then unfortunately it will be another trophy less season.

08 Dec 2019 17:51:00
Hi gents, sad day for us today. in my opinion the wee man was more interested in a fight than playing football today.

2 points to make
First why change pen taker in such a game and that time?
Second Barker or Candasis?

08 Dec 2019 17:54:49
any decent tim has to admit we played them off the park. we showed we are best in scotland and can win this league.

55 is coming in 2020.


08 Dec 2019 17:59:39
Hate to say it but i fear the quadruple trebble is more likely.

08 Dec 2019 17:59:59
Just wasn't our day, only other fault lies with the 'captain' shirking responsibility for pen.

08 Dec 2019 18:00:23
WAGSMAN your totally right. I would think more of him as a person and manager to make changes. Problem is he wont. Celtic will win the league. I feel now we will bottle it on Thurday. We will play for a point. Do I want SG out? No I don't but when it comes to the crunch has he got it? I dunno.

08 Dec 2019 18:01:19
Who cares fs. We got beat.

08 Dec 2019 18:03:06
My 1st post on here and I for one can't agree with you fellow bear apart from we played them off the park . All we had today was bad luck on another day we would have been 3-0 up at ht but even the manky fans know today the better team lost that's down to Stevie Gerrard and the playrs they done us proud today but sometimes luck play's its part . In Gerrard we trust.

08 Dec 2019 18:03:20
Somebody needs to call out the linesman for that call how can he not see that two players are off side at a set piece
However Goldson gave the free kick away in the first place when he didn’t have to.

08 Dec 2019 18:06:50
Gerrard is talking rubbish with that penalty you clearly see tav picking up the ball and then giving it to morelos.
But because we have no one to replace tav he defends him again and throws morelos under the bus just cause he hasn't scored.
Foster was like superman today morelos is not to blame the useless captain and goldson are our weak link and need replacing.
I did not see many rangers players today to step forward to trying score all re allying on morelos jack was bout the only other one rest of them bottled it and never tain responsibility.
I fear for us when we lose morelos.

08 Dec 2019 18:07:22
been the best team dosnt alaways won game Aerdeen now celtic only had one shot at goals and scored.

08 Dec 2019 18:09:15
We screwed up against Aberdeen but don’t forget a few days later Hibs gave them a doing 3-0.

08 Dec 2019 18:11:39
SG gets slated in previous games because he doesn't change things/ use his subs. 🤔.

08 Dec 2019 18:11:56
Totally agree rossco. I just said the same thing to my mate. The linesman is bang on line before the free kick is taken. How in god's earth can he miss the offside, it's not even close. The sooner VAR comes in the better.

08 Dec 2019 18:12:24
We have too many boys and not enough men. Very little character in crunch time and those who do try to step up like Stewart, Halliday and Katic can’t get a game. I’m not saying Stewart and Halliday are world beaters by any means, but Celtic would at least have known they were there, Kent and Aribo were empty jerseys.

08 Dec 2019 18:40:04
Kent and Aribo empty jerseys! They both played well until Kent ran out of steam. don't think Rangers had a bad player in the starting 11, creating so many chances. Could criticise Morelos for the penalty miss and a few other misses but he did create them. Bad luck and a keeper on form- plenty to be positive about.

08 Dec 2019 18:44:39
What game were you watching? Any time Kent got the ball he gave it away or ran into traffic!

08 Dec 2019 19:42:21
For me, Kent was too central whenever he got the ball, he is better in the wide areas with barisic assisting him. Great shot from Jack in first half, but we don't see enough of that from any of our players in any game. Gerrard was renowned for his shooting from long range, I wish he could teach some of our lads how to do it!

08 Dec 2019 20:46:44
The boys all played brilliant . inn b on it’s very hard but we have to stop being sore losers . it will come . they were very very lucky today and I for one see today as an optimistic step . Media saying foster moved off line fir pen too. Alfredo didn’t get booked but matched them fir aggression . league and Scottish cup is ours.

08 Dec 2019 20:48:18
Csaigs8688, I've been saying the exact same thing to anybody that will lister, tav& gold son are just not good enough, imho.

08 Dec 2019 17:35:07
Gutted isn’t the word. Though we were really really good until we started to chase it and force it.
Gerrard got his tactics spot on and it’s not his fault we lost.
Only positive for me is how bad they are. We shouldn’t be at all fazed going there in a few weeks. On another day that game finishes 3 or 4 nil to Rangers.

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Dec 2019 17:41:53
Hows that? Kent, Aribo and Arfield are total rubbish.

08 Dec 2019 17:44:57
87 Henderson. There is a slight flaw in your thinking. In another game it would have been. But in 4 weeks time like today it’s Celtic. Our 2 strikers haven’t scored against them. So who will?

08 Dec 2019 18:05:57

Agree Kent was absolute trash today but Arfield and Aribo were ok.

08 Dec 2019 18:10:17
Team needs strengthening but where is the money coming from?

08 Dec 2019 18:13:10
Fair point windy, damned if I know, Stewart maybe, if given the opportunity.

08 Dec 2019 18:13:19
Their luck has to run out at some point.

08 Dec 2019 17:19:25
Normally I come on here and have a right rant after a game like that but although I'm absolutely devastated to lose we have shown that we can batter them in a game (Although we didn't win)

What a mad game

If it hadn't been for Forster and the officials (again) we would have won that game

Disappointed that Barker came on and not Stewart - I think Barker was shockingly bad

I know we lost this game but I've never had more belief that we can win this league.

Agree4 Disagree0

08 Dec 2019 17:24:12
I agree on all counts thereFraser52.
For the second game in a row though Kent Aribo and Arfield have been shocking. Kent’s meant to be our big money man to make things tick. Against Hamilton is not when we need it. The big games is what wins the silver.

Quietist game McGregor will ever have against them. I’m afraid to say it it like when the goalie kept us in the games when we won every time.

08 Dec 2019 17:25:32
Irrelevant how the game pans out if you still lose it. We chucked that away make no mistake.

08 Dec 2019 17:25:59
I have to agree with you fraser52.

08 Dec 2019 17:28:22
Totally agree. Played them off the park today and lost by a goal which was clearly offside. I didn’t even need the replay to know.

Absolutely gutted tonight.

08 Dec 2019 17:30:02
Well said Fraser, very disappointing result but we didn’t deserve to lose.

08 Dec 2019 17:32:52
To bluenose. Agree with you about the players you mentioned. But how long have they been off the boil? Weeks. Kent is a waste of 7m. Arfield is a shadow of the player he was last season. Aribo stated off well when he signed. he's not kicked a ball in weeks either. What's Greg S got to do to get a game? Again look at out manager. I'm not going to mention Gutless Tav again. We have no winning mentality in the big stage. That's the reality.

08 Dec 2019 17:47:09
Goldson gave away a stupid needless foul that cost us the game.

08 Dec 2019 17:49:37
As how was tav gutless. Manager said Alf on penalties.
Should be off them already.
1000 two corporate packages. Nightmare var should be in Scottish game Done today and Wednesday poor ref decisions.

08 Dec 2019 17:56:31
SG has got to say that come on. Forgot VAR. I'm not buying that. We didn't score so we can't win.

08 Dec 2019 18:00:33
As so u are now saying manager a liar, I did predict all this hysteria.

08 Dec 2019 18:07:04
So what's he going to say? " I kept Tav on them and he bottled it and gave it to Morelos"? Humiliate him in public? he's sticking up for his captain.

08 Dec 2019 18:18:51
John25, I agree to some extent about VAR, but if we had it today, Alfie would have walked for his achilles trip on their CH, his temper was beginning to show again today.

08 Dec 2019 18:18:59
We have been done by poor decisions yet again. Just think of the squealing that would have been coming out of lemon's mouth had he experienced the decisions of the last 2 games. But these things even out. Aye right. And why should we forget VAR? Do you think we should continue to be cheated out of games then?

08 Dec 2019 18:19:28
Your exactly the type that would be moaning if Stewart got a run in the team and did just okay as1974. Iam as disappointed as anyone with the result today, not the performance though.

08 Dec 2019 18:42:21
Hows that? We have too many passengers in our team. See if players don't perform then you have to change the personnel. That's the bottom line. Winning the league is pie in the sky.

08 Dec 2019 19:52:02
Your entitled to your opinion as1974.
I think we will win the league this season.

08 Dec 2019 19:52:06
Irvger Alf trip was no more than a yellow, however if bar said red so be it.
Not a reason to not have var in case alf gets caught.

08 Dec 2019 21:50:21
John25, possibly, wasn't he booked for an earlier foul on Hayes, maybe not. I think the wee man was frustrated at Foster saving everything, him and Jack were the only two that looked like scoring, mind you, Goldson could have done better with a couple of headers in the 1st half. We'll be okay pal, roll on Thursday to get us back to winning ways hopefully, in many ways, today was our best performance in weeks.
