I rarely pay any attention to what our Glasgow neighbours or their followers have to say. Nor will I in future. But the startling comment yesterday about the Flanagan decision being 'an embarrassment for the whole of Scottish football", well, given the current front page headlines, they should have perhaps been tempted to rethink that. Maybe they are upset we got a decision from the SFA for once or is this a classic 'deflect the blame' as we've come to expect. Somehow I don't think their millions will all be spent on players, mores the genuine pity. Maybe their comms team need a wee reflection. Anyway, come on The Famous tomorrow, let's finish strongly and build the momentum for next season.

Neal Lennon releases a statement saying we release too many statements then they released another statement today Is it no THEM that's releasing too many statements am a bit confused now who is it that's releasing too many statements?



18 May 2019 17:12:57
A statement would sort it tinman.

17 May 2019 18:51:02
We all know that Flannigan's forearm to broons chest was a red but wee lemmon told us all that celtic don't do statements - suppose we should have taken that statement with a pinch of salt as they don't do letters, but .

Everybody seems to have conveniently forgotten about simunovic's elbow on Defoe that actually looked worse tbh. Maybe I imagined it and it didn't happen? Lol. Letters and statements are what that club does best as is the same for the Lurgan bigot. Also nobody has mentioned the players cited table where we sit at the top with double figures. Every other club in the league also have numbers except one. Now which club woukd that be? As I've said before along with many othets - all I want is fairness across the board. Yes I thought Flannagan's was a red despite peanut's obvious play acting, but so was the other incident. VAR can't come quickly enough for me.

Just popped over to the dark sides web site. Glad to see that the likes of timaloy are now coming round to my way of thinking.

I've posted on here for months that their team will require a major rebuild and that this will not be easy they have several players that are on big money, that they will struggle to ship out.
Their fans continue to state how many millions they have in the bank, however with a wage bill of 61 million (now about 59 million now brenda has left) . And their commitment to building their bb and by what I'm hearing there is major issues with this as investors in the project are withdrawing due to issues surrounding brexit.

So let's break it down a new manager if Lennon doesn't get the job will cost, if decent a min of 2.5 mill per year, normally 3 year deal and along with his staff and a head of recruitment also required, will cost your club say about 14 million over 3 years.

Now the team, for the first team at least 4 new signings required and poss another 6 squad players required. So let's say about 10 million in transfer and agent fees and prob about the same in wages.

Liewell and DD are business men with profit being king and will not sanction the major investment required until the current wage levels a reduced.

Rodgers record in domestic competitions cannot be questioned however he has left your club in some mess with his failures in the transfer market. Your club currently have at least 10 players that are no where near the first team on long contracts and on big wages and as such the club will find it difficult to ship out.

For the last 7 years your club have dominated the spl and have had the luxury of cherry picking all the best young players in Scottish football this is not the case any more with those players now coming to rangers. Docherty, Jones, hastie, Kamara.
Your team also have had the luxury of bring players like Forrest McGregor KT and Christie into the team without any real pressure as there has been no real challenge. Now that there is a challenge this isn't as easy as Johnstone, Ralston ect have found out

The transfer policy for your club over the past 6 years has been buy projects and sell on for big cash. This can be done easily when you have no challenge. However I wonder if your club, now that there is a challenge will continue down that same road.

Rangers atm have a big name manager that will attract good players to our club. I would say that currently our team is about 80% down the road in our rebuild. If you know anything about football in that when you add 15 new players to your squad, one of the things that suffers is consistency as your trying to blend in these new players into the squad and add a new style of football.
This has been the case for most of the season but now our players are starting to gel as a team. Results have proven this as in our last 6 games 14 goals scored 1 goal conceded all against the top six teams. Even the previous old firm game at the paddy field your team where hanging on against our 10 men.

Yes your team is on the brink of making history of treble treble but if your honest, your team are stagnant and going backwards. Where we are a team on the up and once we get back on top then we will be difficult to shift. Mainly because your board will always put profit first.



15 May 2019 17:38:01
can you be stagnant and move backwards.

15 May 2019 18:30:31
Right Stewartyblue, there is numerous flaws in your post but can't be bothered picking you up on them all. But can you tell me "at least 10 players that are nowhere near the first team on long contracts and big wages" I'm intrigued. Did you just make this up to make you feel better after another season of failure? One thing you were right about we have stagnated. Stagnated means everything stays the same. Yip you're right still picking up Trebles 🏆🏆🏆.

15 May 2019 22:43:12
Ok stevie let's go through it and b4 we start what I ment to say in my previous post was no where near good enough for your first team.

Players that have still a year or more to run on their contracts compper, Gordon, Ralston, bitton, kouassi, hendry, mulumbu, bayo (injured untested), Griffith ( will be surprised to see him playing at top level again) .
Players who's contracts are ending and will leave Allan, lustig, Boyata, izzaguirre, Gamboa, De Vries, toljan.
Three loan signing coming to a end.

Take bayo out of that lot, that's 16 players your team need to replace.

No new manager announced no head of recruitment in place. 7 weeks till first champ league qualifier.

Other players in your squad that most of your fans are not happy with and look disinterested according to social media your website celtic rumours and the phone ins rogic, sinclair, ntcham and edovard is never a 9 million pound player.

When I stated your team have stagnated your manager and board should have blown us out of the water within the previous 2 transfer windows but you didn't
When the season comes to a end your team will have went backwards.

If I was a betting man failure to reach champ league group stages again will result in either KT McGregor or Forrest being sold.

The main question is are you confident that your board will fund replacing 16 players a top manager and his team and a head of recruitment.

16 May 2019 08:52:15
Stewartyyblue Our squad was over inflated with players so not all of those that you have named need to be replaced. We ended the year with quite a hefty profit so if we need to then we can splash the cash.

The players that you mentioned that rangers pipped celtic to (kamara, hastie etc) I don't remember celtic ever being linked with them. The only one of them that seems to be anywhere near the quality that we need is kamara.

It's OK to lash out after another disappointing season for your team but the dilussion you're showing is quite remarkable.

16 May 2019 12:55:52
Stewartyblue, our bubble will eventually burst, that's a fact. But if winning the league and one possibly two cups as well is a decline. Then I'm happy lol.

16 May 2019 14:47:15
You’re bubble has a slow puncture already. Of that there is no doubt.

16 May 2019 15:26:37
Slow punctures can be repaired did the rangers balloon not completely burst in 2012.

16 May 2019 16:38:30
Yes it did But it’s been fixed but for a few bits here and there. Yours needs less work than ours did but the hot air is leaking badly and the repairs have not even nearly started. You’ve started going backwards and it’s great fun to watch.

16 May 2019 16:50:04
Stewsrtyblue 🎣 🤣🤣.

16 May 2019 18:01:26
And I think that our 2nd goal - a thing of absolute beauty - is symbolic as it marks the end of your dominance. Move over and let the big boys in.

16 May 2019 18:10:18
Bruisedbear.

8 in a row backwards.

A Hampden cup final to come backwards.

A league cup win backwards.

Please I'll take the backwards over 2nd place, and stuffed in two cup semi finals by farm animals, everyday of the week.

16 May 2019 19:25:53
To all the deluded that have responded to my post. Keep telling yourselfs that because you are on the brink of a treble treble that everything is rosey in the garden at your club. I will be surprised if Lennon gets the job as it would have been announced by now. So major rebuild needed and if you think that a full new management team, head of recruitment and 10 or 12 players leaving. With seven of them leaving for nothing. Isn't a major rebuild then you are truly deluded.

Having cash in the bank doesn't guarantee success as every manager and player at the levels our clubs operate at is a gamble. How has edovard 9 million worked out, if he was put up for sale you would be lucky to be offered 5 mill for him.

Again I will say 7 weeks till first champ qualifier tick tock tick tock.

16 May 2019 19:55:43
AHW. Your team took it backwards on Sunday. No mistaking. And it made great viewing.

15 May 2019 07:05:22
Some of the things I have read over the past few days from the celtic - this has a hint of 2016 semi final, this is the wake up call we need, Celtic will spend and pull away again. Now, if that's their take on things to comfort each other then that is their choice. My only problem with that is a missive 60 MILLION pounds wage bill. How much more can they add to that bill? They will need an awful lot of their players to walk away either free of charge or purchased. Not going to happen. My second thought is, its a hint of 2016 for them maybe. With them having virtually the same team and we have 1 or 2 from that day. My point is, we aren't that weak team that beat Celtic that day anymore. Its not going to take a few million to pull away from us again. That would take serious money and as we all know, that is something they won't be prepared to do!



13 May 2019 18:19:03
Scott Brown - a big boy did it then ran away 😂😂😂😂😂.



15 May 2019 07:35:35
A big boy with two medals this season :) . After the dust has settled down, the history books will reflect the real Champions. COYBIG. Will be heard next season 😉.

13 May 2019 10:30:54
Big Mutton at it again! The most bitter agenda ridden Pundit out there and that's saying something Wee Tam McManus (had to look him up) having a go now I've looked back but couldn't see his article denouncing the hanging effigies at the midden got to make the agenda fit eh!



13 May 2019 08:12:19
The referees and sfa are corrupt again lol no mention of it since xmas when they pulled away from us. 1 lovely win for us and its the whole worlds out to get us again. Did that mob honestly think we would never get our act together again?



13 May 2019 18:45:44
You have won nothing and this is getting your act together?

13 May 2019 19:38:45
I would say we were getting our act together, wouldn't you in our position? What's happened to your act btw? Lol.

13 May 2019 23:45:41
cannot believe you've come out with that Seeker😂 Has that victory yesterday erased from your memory the fact Celtic are on the verge of winning a treble treble?

14 May 2019 09:38:01
We are definitely on the up and your mob are in decline. If you don't acknowlege that then you are deluded and in total denial.

14 May 2019 23:05:26
As Maximus Aurelius once said "the time for honouring yourself is almost at en end" Surely you must be at least slightly worried after getting your arse firmly put in a sling once again? Not so much the defeat as the manner of it? No? I can smell the fear tbh. Maybe it's not the fear I smell lol.

15 May 2019 06:10:52
Its definetly coming from their direction!

15 May 2019 06:19:41
Hahaha! Seeker coming out with more deluded classics! What’s happened to our act? That will be the act that is about to win trophy number 9 on the bounce! Haha. and I’m as worried now as I was in December when u beat us! How did that go for you again after that? Aww aye your bottles crashed once again and you couldn’t buy a win when the pressure was on! I’ll ask u a simple question. if back in the day of the oldco when they were winning things we had beat you twice in a season but u had won every trophy in sight, would u be sitting there worrying about us? Shall I answer that for you? It’s NO by the way! We’ve won everything in sight by playing as bad as we possibly could and losing a manager during the season! And u still couldn’t do anything about it! We’ll regroup again in the summer, inject some freshness in the squad and be ready for 9iar! yes That’s 9 leagues in a row pal! And i have no doubt whatsoever your arses will collapse once again when it really matters! Aww aye and when’s the open top bus parade happening for your 2 wins by the way? U can hold up an imaginary trophy during it haha!

15 May 2019 07:09:21
Everything in sight obviously doesn't include the games at Ibrox!

15 May 2019 07:59:07
Must be worrying to capitulate si badly thar your support goes into full meltdown. And thanks fit taking the time to write such a long obsessive post on our site. Something I have never and will never do. Must be really strange to hate a club more than you love your own. The natural order will be restored very soon and I think you know it. The timplosion will be magnificent. Can't wait to drink it in, drink it all in. What happened to the Stevie G will be away by Christmas quote I read everywhere at ths start of the season?

15 May 2019 17:58:09
C of Ibrox every trophy in sight son 😜 but u cling on to those 2 victory’s! Dear oh dear how times have changed indeed eh! Celtic on the verge of 9 trophies on the bounce and going into 9iar season next season but the hysteria on here is laughable! Remember the days of the oldco when they celebrated actual trophies and 2nd was seen as abject failure! Now the newco are applauded off the park for finishing runners up and failure to even get to a cup final! Wee club mentality and absolutely staggering levels of delusion! Long may it continue but because my god what a laugh everybody else has at your expense! And seeker I’m remember the last trophyless moron who uttered the words natural order! How did that work out hahaha yir some laugh!

12 May 2019 20:45:17
All that moaning about a guard of honour and they didn't even show up for one!



12 May 2019 22:28:42
The only guard they should have got was right guard.

13 May 2019 09:26:05
Seeker 😂😂😂😂.

12 May 2019 20:17:32
Aw aw aw its magic you know it will never be nine in row. We now have the core of the team sorted and with 3 of the best wingers in the league added to squad with Murphy Jones and Hastie and Dorrens returning to the squad it's all looking great for next season. SG will add 2 or 3 quality players to our squad. Hopefully Kent is one of those signing.

55 let's go.



13 May 2019 18:46:32
Was that a copy and paste from last season lol.
