Gerrard throws Morelos under the Lamborghini


Just six days after Steven Gerrard pondered if his team had the “bottle” to mount a title challenge, they were unable to overcome Aberdeen at home.  Were it not for Sam Cosgrove having an off day, all three points may have travelled north after the game.

Gerrard’s reaction was typically selfless, “We’re definitely doing something right in terms of the team organisation [trans: I’m good at my job], but I think individuals in it today let us down a bit by giving big chances away [trans: it’s the players fault].

Having absolved himself of all blame, Gerrard went on to throw Morelos under the Lamborghini, “The biggest [chances]were obviously one in the first-half, Alfredo should put Ryan Kent through on goal and the second he should have taken the chance that was presented to him with a fantastic ball by Connor.”

This is not a positive sign.  Good managers are strong enough to open themselves to criticism in order to protect their players.  This guy sounds like he has self-doubts.  Not without reason.

The weekend’s action ended in typical fashion with the champions stretching their lead to seven points, albeit having played a game more than the also-rans.

Credit to Hamilton Accies, who battled with 10-men before collapsing after the 78th minute.  Celtic were uninspiring until that point, but they are champions for a reason.  The game transformed with the arrival from the bench of Jonny Hayes, Ryan Christie and Tom Rogic.  Rogic, in particular, has patiently waited his chance.  I would start him at Fir Park on Wednesday.

    I like that.

    So true. Almost inevitable, IMO, that efforts will be made to make a laughing stock of Michael.


    Haircut time .


    Cheerio for now.

  2. Traynor won’t take that lying down. He’ll be digging for skeletons to get ride of Stewart. He must hate the fact that Sutton and MS are outwith his control. They are both head and shoulders above the rest of the pundits. They are articulate, incisive and knowledgeable. For sure Sutton is pro Celtic, we all know that, MS just says it as he sees it. And he knows what is BS when he sees and hears it.


    You can be sure of one thing, when MS started being a pundit, the BBC expected him to be, as an ex-jambo, more sympathetic to Govan than to Parkhead.

  3. Not long now until yer Birthday CORKIE.🤓



    HH, and the Holy Grail.



    G*a*s* hopefully. 9 along the way would be spiffing.

  4. Neil Lennon has confirmed Frimpong will be back training on Monday.



    That’s promising. Could he be back for the Trip to Pittodrie?



    We’ll see.

    Really disappointed with McIntyre’s pathetic “jim traynor is not here to defend himself”


    Neither was Leigh Griffiths but that didn’t stop anyone from laying into him…

  6. In a way I hope he does go after Michael Stewart, and if he does, he will be will opening the biggest can of worms ever! por cierto

  7. That comment “he’s not here to defend himself” could be used in every single issue that they discuss. Do they now need to invite every one to come on the show when they’re talking about him/her? Did they ask Morelos to come on to back up his well broadcast comments? Strange if they didn’t, as they knew he was going to be part of the show. of course, along with his Sky translator por cierto.

  8. Further to the LG stamping ‘debate’ it is obvious on the video that LG clearly did his best to keep the weight off the ‘offending’ foot.


    It is clear that the only intent involved for the whole debacle is the intent of the hunnites to land LG in trouble.



    As to Sally’s comments, what a telling illustration of just what a hurting hun he truly is.

  9. You could feel the sheer panic emanating from McIntyre as MS stated that Traynor is a dangerous man, sowing division and hatred. Whether that was because he is also in Traynor’s pocket or because he feared a lawsuit who knows?


    Listen to him scrambling to say on more than one occasion that MS’s views are not those of the BBC. Does he say that when the panel are pummeling manager’s and players every night?

  10. Is Michael Stewart the 21st century Ian “Because some people are so sick, I have to put these six words at the end of this article ….. I am not a Roman Catholic” Archer?



    Namely one who has greater potential to call out Crafty malpractice because he can’t be portrayed as a sufferer of green paranoia.



    He’s that most dangerous of things to traynor et al. – a brave, erudite, Independent man.



    HH jg



    PS Hoopy Birthday Corkie!

  11. Bada Bing nice one, Spiers does on occasion try to be fair.


    For those that do not have Twitter:



    “What Rangers FC could do with a young, modern, creative PR guru instead of an old blowhard 40 years in the business harbouring deep-seated grudges against sections of the media. A disaster.”

  12. WTF Bada B @10.54



    That is mad stuff.



    I like it.🤯



    I dinnae ken how you find them but things like that are well… funny. thumbs up!!!

  13. Bada Bing – that fella has a serious crush on Haigi. I’d be putting a restraining order on him.

  14. If Celtic get the win against Motherwell I will be buzzing.



    The end of the injury crisis is in sight. Frimpong, Jozo & Elyounoussi returning shortly.



    Elhamed is still unclear.

  15. Siempre Celtic (formerly Traditionalist88) on

    AM: “James Traynor es un tonto absoluto, un imbécil que muchos dirían. Y se parece al Mr.Blobby, recuerdalo? En ese programa de tele, Noels House Party fue?”



    Sky Sports translation: “James Traynor is a fantastic friend and colleague of course, with a modern skillset that will benefit Rangers and of course Scottish football for years to come”




  16. No way should Celtic get involved in Sevco’s media deflection. Stewart has played a valuable role in exposing the lies but Celtic need to stay well clear, we’ve a title to win.



    Hopefully the BBC will get round to putting up the Stewart podcast, they’ve been a bit slow to so as yet.

  17. What is the Stars on

    Anyhow just logged on to wish Corkie a Happy Birthday



    Well if a 7/8 year old football club has 54 league titles ..why cant Corkie have a birthday every week or so

  18. SEASON Ticket holders can now purchase up to two additional tickets, for the vital UEFA Europa League, round of 32 match against Copenhagen on Thursday, February 27 (KO: 8pm).



    Additional tickets can be bought by Season Ticket holders on a first come first served basis at the General Sale prices from £42 for adults, from £32 for concessions and from £27 for under-13s.

  19. Our best left back at the moment is Greg Taylor followed by Bolingoli. Hope Greg gets a run of games to make the position his own.


    By the way Hayes is not a left back

  20. Lenny on the left back position:


    “Boli’s had a bit of time out and he’ll be back in contention for the squad.



    “Greg’s played very well and, at the minute, he’s first in line to play. We’ve got competition in all positions.”

  21. glendalystonsils on

    st tams



    Indeed . It was Hayes ability as a winger that led to our second goal on Sunday.

  22. Michael Stewart fairly ripped into Traynor, gaun yersel son!



    Graham Spiers tweet is a belter n’ aw!
