Callum McGregor’s five mountains in five weeks


If results go their way, Scotland will tonight become the first team to qualify for the Euro 2024 in Germany next summer.  Norway and Georgia are both on four points.  A draw would see them move to five, 10 behind Scotland with three games remaining.

Either way, automatic qualification is inevitable, as, with Spain remaining on both their rosters, neither of the sides who meet in Oslo tonight are likely to reach 15 points.  Post-Scott Brown, James Forrest, Ryan Christie, Kieran Tierney and Stuart Armstrong, our exposure to Scotland games it limited to Callum McGregor.  It is some comfort he will be excused play-off games in the spring.

In the next five weeks, however, Callum is likely to face England, Feyenoord, Lazio, Spain and France, five exhausting matches, with four other Celtic games thrown into the mix.  We need him fresh and at his best for Rotterdam and the visit of the Romans.

With so much of the squad wilting, the role of the captain cannot be overestimated.  He should be rested whenever a safe goal margin permits.

    Saint Stivs, do you honestly believe that your shopping list is typical of families who struggle for cash? Or do you just believe absolutely everything you read in the Daily Mail? Weirdo….



    what are you talking about, it is you that gave the right wing comment




  6. Ally McCoist



    Bigging up Engerland at every opportunity just to ingratiate himself with his employers and the general English population…..all in a cheeky chappy way of course… be honest with you

  7. England have a few carhorses out there, two at the back and one in midfield, got to be able to create a chance or two against them.

  8. Rocvo Vata has just been subsituted for Ireland U21 v San Marino. Not before he scored two excellent goals.


    Bosun Lawal is commanding the defence, reminds me of Boyata

  9. Jude Bellingham this…Marcus Rashford that…..think he’s forgotten most of the Scotland players names……..absholoot bellend of the highest order….to be honest with you

  10. i listen to ally go on and on and wonder why he is not still avtually employed as a football manager, those insights, that knowledge of the game,

  11. Saw Bernard at the last game in Paradise.


    Ex Trinity mhan of course he’s a Tim ..saying that ,so did Andy Walker🫣

    Dion and Ally would be so upset

    I must be getting soft in my old age.
