Celtic, 1 away defeat in 15 years domestic cup football


Ask any manager who he wants in the next round of the cup and he will invariably say as long as it is a home tie he doesn’t care.  You, however, live in exceptional times to be a Celtic supporter.  Celtic have not lost an away tie in Scottish Cup or League Cup competitions in 12 years, when a week after putting seven goals past St Mirren, we travelled to Paisley and were eliminated from the Scottish Cup.  Incredibly, we have not lost an away game in the League Cup since 2004.

Martin O’Neill’s Celtic famously lost at Inverness in the Scottish Cup just days after progressing to the Uefa Cup semi-final with a win at Liverpool.  Martin’s teams also lost away League Cup ties in each of the following two seasons.  Gordon Strachan lost his first Scottish Cup tie as Celtic manager in an also-famous game at Clyde, which saw Roy Keane and Du Wei caught in the headlights.

Since that game in Cumbernauld 15 years ago, the solitary loss at St Mirren is our only defeat away from home in Scottish or League Cups.  As for Ibrox on Sunday, we are ready, bring it on.

    Gene – the merits of it are neither here nor there.



    He shouldn’t be signing anyone.





    Nice one sftb ,the family wondering wtfeck i’m watching :O(

    He’s still in that position and being well paid for the privilege, it’s not a contentious signing – nice to see some positive news.

    Gene – something for PL to chase up instead of handing out contracts.

  6. Quite like Welsh, keeps it simple..but no players should be signing new deals when theres no manager in place..unless!?!🤔

    Well certainly hope so. Our club lost its’ focus this season, and if the team regains that maybe the club will follow suit. A defeat will live long in infamy, or is it ignominy? Either way it is not enough, to say as John does, that we are the better team, when the results over the course show otherwise. Not to mention that our opponents also have the better referees. Maybe we should wear the all white strip we wore against St Etienne and Morton back in the day, just to confuse them.

    Equis in Hamilton have no flags flying at half mast






    Hi Mate



    Hamilton is not in Ayrshire. If you take my meaning. 🙂




  9. Unionist parties have obviously made a deal before the debate, all very chummy soft soap questions.

    TONYROME-hi buddy.Someone mentioned nardinis being owned by the Equi family.So I thought I would let folks know that no flags half mast at Equis,Hamilton 😉


    In hindsight I probably shouldn’t have bothered 🤷🏽‍♂️😉

    No idea who the new manager will be but I do know for sure that the players, to a man, all really regard JK very highly and really want to play for him.



    You are also correct that there was friction between NL and JK Re game day execution of training ground plans …..or rather the lack of it.

    PSG are a good team with the ball,but everything that is wrong with football when they don’t have it.

    Any road bike folks on here know someone who’ll do a bike fit?…..not too expensive!






    TIMMY7_NOTED on 13TH APRIL 2021 5:19 PM


    I changed a chain and indexed the gears on my road bike at the weekend, I hate doing it , always takes ages but I’m too miserable to pay someone to do it :-)









    Have you thought about asking Timmy7_Noted? I think you could get a decent price off him

    This bt coverage is worse than wee wits the goalie doing Tom.


    It’s embarrassing

  16. With 15 mins + stoppage time still to go in the PSG Bayern match, the commentator announces ‘its now or never for Sane’

    That main commentator in the PSG game was irritating, needs a story to tell every few minutes
