Celtic struggle to shift disorganised look


Having successfully subjugated in-form Motherwell by the opening minutes of the second half, all it took was a deflected shot that looped over Scott Bain to shatter composure and reduce Celtic to a side clinging on and ultimately fortunate to stop an equaliser in the final seconds.

Within minutes of that Motherwell goal, Neil Lennon replaced Albian Ajeti with Leigh Griffiths, Greg Taylor with Diego Laxalt and Scott Brown with Ismailia Soro, which should have injected fresh energy into the side, but seemed only to add indecision.  Mohamed Elyounoussi replaced David Turnbull, which like the earlier substitutions, was a like-for-like swap, expected to halt Motherwell’s momentum.  Far from it.

An apparent urgency to get the ball forward saw possession carelessly surrendered.  Without a reliable Out Ball, Celtic finished the game in a rear-guard action that only encouraged Motherwell to pour forward.

A second win on the bounce is a vast improvement over recent form, still, that disorganised look remains.  The league is gone but there are still things to achieve this season.

    We played a game called “CHINKY ! . when it got dark you would put a dod of chewing gum on the end of a bobbin of thread , 5 inches from that , we tied a nail onto the thread then placed the chewing gum onto the frame of a window , walking away holding the thread till you couldn’t be seen and gently wrapped the nail off the frame .



    You watched as the curtains opened , waited till they closed them and did it again .



    For wee boys this was dangerous and exciting lol…..

    Tackling your own teammate so you can score






    Fighting over who was taking a deciding penalty too.

  5. We used to sit either side of the road and pull up an imaginary rope when a car came…..a lot of those drivers taught me the swear words I use to this day

  6. PS….. 2 schools of thought on why the game was called “CHINKY”



    1 . It was the sound it made when the nail hit the frame .


    2. It was the slither of light when the curtains opened.

    And it’s getting dark, score 20:20. Next goals the winner and no one can score that last goal, cause everyone is knackered
