Fragile limbs

The overwhelming request from an international break is that our players return injury-free.  Nir Bitton made an appearance as a second half substitute against Wales last night but left the field 18 minutes later, with a foot injury.

Nir is in the best form of his life and has carved himself out a deep-lying creative role in the Celtic team.  Central midfield roles don’t come up for grabs too often.  Two of our strongest players, Scott Brown and Stefan Johansen, compete for a small number of central midfield jerseys, although they are different types of players, so it’s important our Nir doesn’t spend too long on the side-lines.

Fraser Forster’s terrible knee injury last weekend was sickening.  The big guy is one of the most professional players in the game and is absolutely dedicated to his development.  His form in the FA Premier League this season has been sensational, recording more shutouts than any other keeper.

It’s a blow to Southampton too, who gave Celtic £10m for Fraser’s services seven months ago.

  1. Crazy thing is Gibraltar are playing better football (ie passing it rather than hoof ball) than most SPL teams. How we ever got to that position I don’t know.

    I remember we used to scream for those penalties when Maloney was in the Hoops

     

    – he never got one.

    The hoof ball indeed. Shocking to watch. Makes me glad that we try and play football.

     

    Dinosaurs the lot of them, Strachan, Watty Smith, McLeish, McCoist, McCall and maybe even MON.

    Two soft penalties… must be the blue jerseys.

     

     

    Scotland are dire, devoid of any inventiveness.

     

     

    Still hope Shaun scores another one at least – we won’t get any more “articles” about the 100 000 pound dumpling C Stein.

    Just watched a few minutes of the Scotland game. Not remotely entertaining. I cannot think of any of them I would like to see playing for Celtic (apart from any who already do!).
