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.

    Gibraltar sub makes his debut at 35.





    Gordon Greer made his at 32 and he’s 35 now. The Brighton and Hove Albion stalwart that he is.

  2. Fletcher another of the fitbaw fraternity currently embracing the synthetic barnet. His is the Stan Laurel look !!

  3. PF


    The fact that we bought 3 duds for the price of one of the 3 we mention does not make the players that we did not buy any better or more suitable


    My point is we should buy good players as opposed to expensive ones



    Anyway Fletcher is now as good as Colin Stein


    Aye. That good

  4. 67Heaven .. CHALLENGING THE LIE ..I am wee Oscar...... Ipox belongs to the creditors on

    We want 7, just like in ’57 …. :

  5. Don’t know what funnier – the English constantly over egging themselves as title contenders or Scotland’s inability to deal with a bunch of semi pros while celebrating as if they are Brazil!




  6. If Scotland would have won 7-0 would that have satisfied everyone who’s mentioning pub team etc. What was the score when the Germans played them, gie us peace ffs






  7. Well played Scotland. You can only play what’s put in front of you.



    Shower of miserable anti-football bastards on this blog. Why can’t people just be football fans and enjoy the game instead of the usual display of hatred when it’s not Celtic playing?



    I’ll leave it to the miseries. You deserve each other.

  8. getting away fae this Scotland stuff;me and my better half are going to take in the partick game on the 8th’anybody know if we could get tickets for Lisbon lions stand as we have been there a few times and really liked there

  10. Shower of miserable anti-football bastards on this blog.

    Scottish fans moaning and groaning when ball wasn’t passed forward at all times – total embarrassment – fans of wee f4nny teams who haven’t a clue how real football should be played.


    That Valencia youth coach going on about Scottish fans not appreciating keeping the ball – probably right but probably brought up on a diet of Zhun tripe ? (excluding wee Dick’s teams).

    after the treatment of Aiden, I was only cheering about 3-4 players tonight – tho I like wee Anya.

  16. A full two days of transporting boys to both codes of football.



    Was up in Glenravel this morning. Time to relax and watch Ireland.



    For you all you Christy Moore fans:



    No I didn’t meet McElhatton or even get a sniff of poitin.
