Quantcast

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. “Naismith first name on the team sheet” says Davies Provan.

     

     

    Is that our level?

     

     

    SN is a solid hard working pro but first name on team sheet? Aye if playing for my boys team.

    If we were competing in Olympics at an aquatic event Provan would be right.

  3. Provan should learn what is a good cross and what is not. When it’s straight at the keeper Davie, is not a good ball.

    Glad l missed the first half of this dire game. Looking forward to a proper match shortly, Eire vPolska.

  5. Has Neil McCann expressed his outrage about Naismith diving? i’m sure he was very vocal about it earlier in the season.

    The pitch looks like a total midden (what’s new) it’s cut up badly in a lot of places.

  7. Gordon Strachan suffering from the myopic if they play in England must be ggod view.

     

    He’s making the mistake of the incompetent msm by downplaying Scottish homegrown players and over rating English based dross

  8. Gordon suffering from the lack of vision he showed at Celtic when sticking with his favourite players despite poor form. Incredible that Maloney is still out there.Hutton not far behind.

    Hutton tripped by the turf.

     

     

    Looked nasty but back on his feet.

     

    ———-‘

     

     

    To clarify the turf did not look nasty. Nor indeed did Hutton on this occasion.

     

     

    I was describing the event rather than ascribing any emotional mood to the turf which is resplendently green (as turf should be).

     

     

    Wee Bannon making some nice passes btw.

    Instead we got Balde , Pukki and Bangura ….not suggesting those mentioned above are world beaters but they would have been better than the three stooges
