Don’t mention the (boardroom) war


With financial projections which provide entertaining reading, Rangers International promoted director, Walter Smith, to the position of chairman.  Smith immediately proclaimed, “Unity among the directors is vital”, although he was not asked about the forthcoming EGM where fellow directors Malcolm Murray and Chris Morgan face dismissal, while a third director, Charles Green, suggested he was going to resign by today, but has not got around to filling out the form yet (does this guy have ‘form’ when it comes to filling Companies House forms?)…..

They don’t do unity very well.

The only show in town is season ticket sales; for all clubs.  Maybe Celtic should appoint Martin O’Neill to the board for a few weeks to allow the newspapers to provide some bluster for those who more convinced by headlines and sound-bites than strategy?  Perhaps not.  Let’s stick to plan.

Lisbon Lion in Ayrshire, send reinforcements!

Willie Wallace will be at Waterstons in Ayr from 1-3pm this afternoon, get along (with camera) if you can.

Tomorrow Willie will be at the Celtic Superstore from 12-2pm before going to the Celtic Shop, Clydebank, from 3.30-5.30pm.  Get out and meet the man.

Great to meet so many people at Waterstons, Stirling, last night. The store sold out of Willie’s autobiography. There was actually a queue of people waiting to enter the store at one point.

Just a few days left on the auction for the signed Messi strip, a magnificent piece of football memorabilia. Keep an eye on it here.

    Some nice walks and good photo opportunities. We are in the country here dont forget..o))





    Brown was the summariser to Alan Green’s commentary of the BARCA game.



    Green’s enthusiasm and appreciation of the atmosphere,the spectacle,the performance was simply a delight.



    Brown’s attitude by contrast was simply a disgrace.



    A small man with a small mind.

  3. BT- cool. Camera packed and book for the long journey from Anniesland to Blantyre! :-)

    Good morning all.

    sannabhoy…happy birthday.

  5. Re Rogne and by extension, Paddy. Miku, Gershon & Darryl Murphy, I am a little surprised that the Club has made no official announcement re their future. I assume there is a protocol to be followed & perhaps their contracts don’t expire quite yet, but you would expect particularly with a lad like Paddy that the sooner his availability is advertised the better chance he will have of getting a good contract somewhere else.

  6. Remember Smith’s miserable puss after the away games on the Seville run.


    Sitting in the studio after some of the greatest away performances by a Scottish team, and he just couldn’t hide his disappointment.


    Did he have an EBT? Does that make oldco a creditor? Karma.

  7. South Of Tunis on

    Gordon Duffield Smith .



    Think my loathing stemmed from his Tv pundit role in explaining away the disallowed Cadette goal at Ibrox . All he had to do was state that the Ref was wrong but he didn’t because he couldn’t bring himself to do that.



    Remember a pal telling me that Duffield had given money to Glasgow Caledonian University . Pal added -fair’s fair -since GCU had given Duffield a degree.



    Bitching over -off oot —to Siracusa.



    Clear blue sky / big sun / real cold wind [ very unusual ] —way down south.





    Happy Birthday!!!!



    BADA BING is on standby for the candles….

  9. If you are in or around Glasgow this lunchtime head down to Celtic Park and meet Lisbon Lion Willie Wallace in the Celtic superstore. You will be very glad that you did – we have been so impressed with Willie as a man and as a great Celt. He loves Celtic and has a marvellous personality – the way he remembers people who have been at the signings from decades early is fantastic. Go shake his hand today.



    He’s at the superstore 12-2pm then at the Celtic shop in Clydebank from 3.30pm to 5.30pm



    Brogan Rogan will be there too!

  10. !!Bada Bing!! on

    Went to meet Mrs Bing at a corporate gig in Glasgow a few months ago,she said Broon was a guest speaker.True to form the old letch was in the lounge sitting amongst a group of young girls.

  11. !!Bada Bing!! on

    Shame about Rogne,guy just couldn’t stay fit,there’s a player in there.Good luck to him.

  12. Oh my Lord, Newton & Dummett have been added to Tonev & Balde already. Next headline, Partick Thistle leaves Lennon red-faced with daring capture of Newton whilst Clyde announce Dummett snubs Celtic in favour of Queen of the South and don’t even get me started on Johnny Russell and half of the Dundee United squad. Paddy, Rogne,Miku Gershon & Darryl Murphy are all set to snub new contracts with Celtic.

  13. Gordon Smith, Craig Brown, losers losers losers and the media speculate as to why Scotland sit below Congo and the mighty Uzbekistan in the world rankings..

  14. !!Bada Bing!! on

    ESPN Classic Sky 425-England v Scotland 1977,Sir Danny in full flow.My favourite ever Celt.

    Seems we’ve been travelling abroad for more than 2 Centuries!



    From the History of the Roman Republic:



    The Celtic problem would not be resolved for Rome until the final subjugation of all Gaul by Julius Caesar at the Battle of Alesia in 52 BC.

    Some Mhan…….each of your posts are a joy to read………. The anti-Celtic agenda (in Scotland) only makes us stronger……. It is part of the Celtic culture / history to resist ‘them’, but also to appreciate the abundant character and pride gleaned from being proud supporters of The Famous Glasgow Celtic……Hail Hail …….”darn the hair that we care now” ..onwards and upwards….!!!!!!!!

  20. !!Bada Bing!!



    Thanks – was a fine game. King Kenny getting what proved to be the winner.


    That’s the first time I have seen it. Had moved to Germany just prior to that.


    Long time ago but in some way seems just like yesterday. Danny was/is the Mhan.

  24. Delighted to hear that Duffield is a bankrupt, – I am after all ‘the enemy’



    No doubt us licence paying enemies will be recruited via the BBC to facilitate a wage


    for such a brilliant football analyst, in his reserved occupation.




  25. Not long back from CP getting a relocation if anyone is interested in moving seats.


    Not much of a queue either.







    Dear God, how the MSM are hurting!!
