Celtic fans to blame, apparently

902

I see Celtic fans are being blamed for rumours of Newco’s administration by their former manager, Ally McCoist. He could argue that. Alternatively, you could suggest that a business unable to secure bank borrowing, dependent on funding from directors, who will soon be forced to find £11m to make a share offer, has created more than enough financial uncertainty without Celtic fans’ assistance.

McCoist suggested “even the biggest Celtic fans in the country” do not want to see Newco go into administration. Not so sure you are right there, Ally. Personally, I would find it a funny, but it is not going to change anything. It would not lead to relegation and will not change the title race in any way.

The most significant outcome of administration could be forcing control from Dave King. Which would be a source of enormous regret.

You hang in there, Dave.

The CQN Podcast: A Celtic State of Mind (EP28) with former Celtic director Tom Grant

Paul John Dykes and Kevin Graham are joined by Celtic’s ex-director, Tom Grant, who offers a fascinating insight into the running of the club in the 1980s and 1990s.

Tom Grant explains exactly why Celtic refused to complete the Mo Johnston transfer in 1989, and lifts the lid on audacious efforts by Billy McNeill to recruit Peter Beardsley and Steve Bruce.

Tom Grant also dissects his relationship with Fergus McCann, and the impact of the ‘Celts For Change’ movement in overturning the ‘family dynasty’ board in 1994.

  2. Received a third reply on OBAct. Ross Greer a Green will vote the way we hope the majority of MSPs with justice in mind will vote.

     

     

    Was at a funeral in Paisley today and spoke to a Liberal Councillor whom I know and asked if she would speak to MSPs from her party about the Act. She knew nothing about it, so I gave a quick run down on the our position on the OB Act. She was amazed at a police officer being able “to deem ” that someone had committed an offence against this act with little or no proof. She promised to speak to members of her party about the issues involved.

  8. Maybe Brendan is sending a message to the PLC. Brendan’s European record is total shit. Not bunch better than Ronnie Delia. However, we all know Europe is the only place that counts when it comes to football and is where Celtic legends and history is made. If he wants to emulate MON nay WGS nay big jock he is gonna need funding. I’m glad 69 is done and dusted. The Huns find it a mouthful anyway. Time to move on. However, if Celtics future is Old Firm and not Europe because of heated driveway requirements then Celtic will become Hibs.

    “we all know Europe is the only place that counts”.

     

     

    Sorry but I think you are wrong. What Ronnie and Brendan and the players achieved managing 69 games undefeated counts. This was a fantastic achievement.

  13. Hamiltontim

     

     

    Tom Mason MSP (Conservative), Bill Bowman MSP (Conservative) and Mike Rumbles MSP (LibDem) all confirm supporting repeal of the Act.

     

     

    Still nothing from Shona Robison (my MSP, SNP) or other SNP MSP’s. Surprise!!!

  14. Tether Vigen

     

    I agree Europe is what we strive for Scotland is where we are based. Win everything in our home country and then see where that gets us. Europe is a bonus
