Christie and managing your assets


Surely Ryan Christie deserves a season at Celtic to show what he can do?  It was a sound enough idea to buy him and immediately loan him back to Inverness.  He has flourished at Aberdeen, but with only 10 Celtic appearances in what will be three years since joining the club, he has not been given a platform to show what he has.

I get that competition is great for the creative mid spots at Celtic, but our plan should be to develop players into first team regulars, or enhance their value and sell them profitably.  Ryan is doing well enough at Aberdeen to attract interest from the Football League, but with a few medals and perhaps Champions League experience under his belt, he would be a more valuable asset.

Celtic players are worth more than Aberdeen players, just as Manchester City and PSG players are worth more than Celtic’s.  Bring Ryan in for next season, make a decision on his future, or work to enhance his value to the club.

    In fairness Delaneys story was the start of a lot of good stuff on here.


    Met Delaneys several times In Dublin Lisbon and Glasgow and enjoyed the experience on each occasion. A real nice happy decent guy was my impression each time.


    I was shocked when he told his story.


    But it brought out the best in a lot of people on here.

  23. I went about with skin when we were weans and my older brother went about with his older brother ziggy I think, when they wher boys but fell away at secondary school..



    I have not seen Delanys (Garry) for years.

  24. David66- the one beside the British Legion. That time for me was a blur. Used to make paper aeroplanes, set them on fire and send them off 22 up. Some bassa broke in before we officially moved in and stole everything, including wallpaper.



    I got them eventually…they stayed on 3rd floor.

  26. thomthethim for Oscar OK on

    Big Packy,



    If you are still around.



    Neither Fulton or Mulroy were Tims, to my knowledge.



    In the 50’s, Glasgow had two famous comedians.


    Lex Mc.Lean and Tommy Morgan.


    Lex played out of the Pacilion, Tommy, the Empire.



    Lex was a Rangers man and Tommy, Celtic.


    Their acts reflected their leanings, but not in the poisonous manner of today.


    Both men were great friends off stage,



    The story going round was that they had a running bet on the results of OF games, with the loser buying the drinks.



    The amount of drinks reflected the score line., e.g 1-0, 0-2, etc.



    Mc.Lean’s was Bols Blue Caracoa and Morgan’s Creme De Menthe.



    This worked out not too bad, until the night of 19th October 1957.
