Frimpong’s creative thinking


It is not going to be welcome tonight, but the absence of Callum McGregor, in anticipation he appears at Pittodrie on Sunday, could be vitally important to our season.  Three weeks out resting a hamstring, there is no way he can be fit to play two games in three days.  We need Callum for Pittodrie, so cannot play him tonight, irrespective of the consequences.  The Leverkusen game is not our priority this week.

There was some creative thinking when Jeremie Frimpong discussed his desire, or otherwise, to leave Celtic earlier this year.  He told the media, “I was not looking to leave Celtic. When the chance came to join Leverkusen, it was not something I was actively looking to do.”

Well, he was not looking to leave Celtic, until Bayer Leverkusen came calling.  Celtic were not looking to sell him either.  Not unreasonably, the player was clear on his desire to play in the Bundesliga from the moment he was aware of the possibility.

I liked his energy and character if not his deliveries.  Best of luck to him, after tonight.

  1. I’ll be watching ACSOM for my prematch, half time and full time analysis. You couldn’t pay me enough money to listen through Neil Lennon analysing our game tonight.

  2. Some conspiracy, DD has hands on approval of buying duds so that therangers can win the league! ..and just to make sure he leaves NL in charge so that whatever 11 we put on the park its still a shambles! Just cant see it. its as daft as saying if we change the manager now all the unfit guys will suddenly be fit again :-)



    Ange’s understanding is that he was brought in to rebuild the team, (after the previous lot had collapsed in a heap) that would have been his remit from the top. Given that we are still in September and he has lost most of his key men thru injury, anyone pushing him out the door now would surely expose themselves as being anti Celtic.

  3. Update – apologies incorrect PayPal address



    Can someone please copy onto next game update – I’m on the bus heading to game, hoping to meet Ryan



    Copied over from our RCQN WhatsApp group



    Please support if possible :::::




    The CQN/Sentinelcelts community, and the many friends of Garry Duncan aka Delaneys Dunky, would like to commemorate Garry’s life and friendship as well pay respect to his recent untimely passing.




    We have had many great suggestions from you on how we best commerate Garry’s life, including flowers, a memorial brick, donation to Mary’s meals and financial support for the family etc.




    Garry’s family, like so many others in our world today, is not a rich family and find their wealth is through the happiness of the family, so to have the burden of not only laying Garry to rest, but also the cost that goes with it is horrific .




    Having spoken with Garry’s son Ryan, we feel it appropriate to pass any monies raised direct to the family to let them decide the best way to use it.




    Anyone who wants to support the family in leaving a long lasting commemoration in honour of Garry can do so through making a donation via bank transfer to –



    o Account name: Walk With Shay



    o Account number: 15326765



    o Sort code: 80-22-60



    o Bank: Bank of Scotland



    Please note – tick business account




    :You can also make a donation via paypal to




    Donations will close on Friday 8th October.




    Thank you in advance for supporting Garry and his family at this very difficult time.








    Huge Thanks to CRC for supporting, with the use of the Walk with Shay Legacy Fund/account, ensuring support can get there quickly



    Love coming on here. Always good for a laugh with all the conspiracy nutjobs.








    Just wait till you hear what they have to say about Res 12.



    You’ll pure pish yourself, so you will.



    It’s hilarious what they claim happened.



    As if anyone associated with the running of Celtic would behave like that!




    And some of the real loonies even say the Celtic board knew about the five way agreement and went along with it.



    Not that there is such a thing as the five way agreement.

  6. Bhoy From The Boyne on

    I will watch it on BT tonight but with sound down pre match, half time and full time.



    Entitled fans and all that.

  7. Hun line up looks unusual. Balogun and Bassey as centerbacks, Bacuna as center mid, and Sakala up front for the corpulent Colombian.

  8. BSR.


    Watching on Paramount Plus App. Ball was well over the line, not even a marginal doubt. Seethin G about to make first half sub. Hagi for Bacuna.




    A good two feet on my Telly. 👍



    Would not be enough for Madhun/ Gollum/ spawn of Dallas et al at the Bigotdome.

  10. Hail Hail boys ☘


    What position is Bankier playing tonight? Ffs it’s game night, it’s all about the team. McGregor and Kyogo is a huge lift. 2.2 is my prediction.
