It’s hard times in the news industry but enough, already


Is there a bookies offering money on STV News achieving four-in-a-row tonight?  Can they set a new record of show footage of fans at Celtic Park on Sunday four consecutive days?  Don’t bet against it.

You would not be reading this if you thought a banned Daily Record journo got a line from those who banned him on Dermot Desmond’s musings.  It just didn’t happen.  The tabs are also keen to squeeze every drop from Sunday’s incident.  It is an open goal they are going to batter at for as long as possible.

I get that we are vulnerable and these are hard times in the news business, but enough, already.

Normally the hours before Celtic play at the San Siro would be a tense time but the team will probably be glad of the chance to go out and play without consequence.  There is nothing for us to gain tonight beyond a self-respecting performance.  I would be delighted with that but would settle for no injuries.

Celtic: Fifty Flags Plus One, an anthology of how Celtic won each of their league titles, is available now.  Starting with our first title in 1893, it details how Willie Maley brought consistent glory, then the sparse successes over four decades before Jock Stein arrived in 1965 and the more contemporary wins since.

It will rekindle memories you had forgotten and give insight into how the leagues were won.

    I was at the ’71 game, I always waited till the crowd dispersed a bit at these games, so I could see the commotion going on behind the goals at the other end. Knew something wasn’t right but never imagined how bad it really was. por cierto

  4. MNCELT,That is one off the many problems Neil Lennon has not knowing his strongest Eleven,and for me that tells me that some players are not up to it ,or they have given up on Neil Lennon for a variety of reasons.

  5. SAINT STIVS @ 4:34 PM,



    I always thought it was the reserve team kit.



    It is interesting that it has a shamrock and not a four leaf clover.



    Recently read it was controvertial for some reason so Celtic not only stopped wearing it but they wete supposed to be handed in and destroyed – so they are very rare jerseys.



    Hail Hail

  6. Wonder why Rangers have a swathe of supporters Union Jack flags in the stands and Celtic have zero supporters on display at Celtic Park.
