Easy and important acts


The events of this week will be scant consolation to the bereaved of Hillsborough, but it is nonetheless important that football paid appropriate respects, as fans and clubs across England did this weekend.

When Celtic offered to host Liverpool for their first game after the tragedy they took a step to demonstrate solidarity with the people of that city.  In presenting a wreath on behalf of the Celtic Movement at Anfield today, Peter Lawwell carried on the spirit of that week.

It’s often the easy acts which are the most important.

Loved the Scottish Cup semi-finals. perfect result-performance combination which allowed Super Salary, Glib and Shameless, Newco and fans of every other club in Scottish football to take something from the first game.

    In my opinion McGrain is the only Celtic player, at their peak, who’d get into a world XI.

  2. Evening Ernie Lynch,



    Good to know that about Joe McBride. Nice to see you here this weekend as I thought that you would be too busy enjoying the Nats conference.

  3. Did Dalglish have a more successful career in England than Brian MaClair ? He won a lot with Man U


    And I have looked this up


    Yet :-)

    I think Stevie Chalmers was club champion at Cawder. Must be nice for Dingwall and his cronies to see his name on the wall when the Folly Folly open is played there.

    Found it, thanks.



    He sure does like the integrity word >}



    s board’s criticism of my appeal to withhold season ticket advances. This board continues its habit of evading issues by attacking the integrity of any individual or group that speaks out against them. I am happy to engage the board on our comparative integrity. Unlike this board, I do not regard integrity as a character attribute that comes with an ON/OFF switch.



    When I met with the board the Chairman requested that, other than the two public statements that we made, the balance of our discussions would remain private. I agreed to that and, despite requests from fan groups to disclose the full details of my discussions, I steadfastly honoured my undertaking. This board did not do likewise. In an ill-judged attempt to discredit me, they have now disclosed my comment to them that I preferred not to put money into Rangers if it could be found from other sources. In this instance they demonstrated their lack of integrity for no advantage as I had already, as part of my frank discussions with the fan groups, advised them that I had no prime ambition to invest further in the club but will do so if no other investors come forward. I would be delighted if the club could thrive without any investment from me. This attempt at a “juicy” leak by the board merely proves that it is impossible to engage this board on a basis of confidentiality and integrity.



    The board has now stated that it was always its intention to only provide the business review after season ticket advances had largely been paid. It has denied that it agreed that the business review would be made available prior to fans committing to season ticket advances even though I referred to this agreement in my public statement immediately after our meeting. At the time the board allowed my public statement, in toto, to go unchallenged. Presumably it had no concern with what I stated. Again, we have an integrity issue but fortunately have common sense as a referee. We know that the board did not challenge my public statement of last month. It is also common cause that the vital issue for the fans is to be told what ambition the owners have for the club and how this is going to be funded. It must be obvious that the fans need this information prior to investing – not after. The board’s new version lacks integrity even if it was believable.



    Given that the board is quick to raise integrity and trust as key issues I would like to pose simple questions that are easy to reply to with a simple yes or no.



    a) Does the board agree it is unfair to ask fans to buy season tickets before they consider the business review?



    b) Does the board agree that, given the present financial position of the club, it is appropriate to provide Ibrox Park and Murray Park as security against season ticket advances?



    c) Does the board agree that in the latter half of December 2013 it was in discussions to obtain finance that would be needed prior to the end of the current season?



    d) Does the board agree that in the latter half of December 2013 it provided public assurances to the fans that the club had sufficient cash to last until the end of the current season?



    Without satisfactory answers to these questions fans should not be expected to invest in season tickets.

    It is terrible but whenever I read about deidco, no matter the website, I think it has been “awe nawed”.



    You can’t take it seriously.



    No wonder their fans wake at 4am in a cold sweat.

  13. Didn’t manage to catch the game on the telly today……………….betcha that stadium sounded strange with none of them vile and bigoted songs…….no doubt the commentary team will have mentioned this…..

  14. Danny McGrain, Paul McStay and Henrik Larsson,



    In no particular order, Bobby Lennox only misses out because I cant leave any of those three out.



    Bobby Lennox, Jimmy Johnstone and Kenny Dalglish as an alternative.



    Henrik Larsson only misses out because I’m a fool.



    I could go on, we are fortunate to have had such hero’s.

    All three are Celtic greats, but none are as great as Lennox

  17. My daughter was telling me Charlie and the bhoys have released a statement prior to their concert next week….no sectarian singing or they will be barred from performing at the barrowlands again….fine a dandy…take it NO MORE ORANGE WALKS?

  18. MagnificentSeven, can’t make a decent argument with that.


    It’s a bit like asking with of your children if the favourite?

  19. The maestro pass for frankie bhoys goal against the handsomes was on jan 2 1988 in the rangers end and the second one was a header and I think graham the conductor Roberts was in goal .will never forget the place singing happy birthday to Celtic great season
