Leigh, Kieran, marking your card


The most important result in international week is that we get all our (33) players back fit and ready for Saturday. That looks to be the case, although I hear Erik Sviatchenko had a close shave at Hampden. The job now is for Ronny Deila to assess the preparedness of his squad for the Hearts game. All may be fit, but it’ll be impossible for the likes of Tom Rogic to be at his best after coping with a 12,000 mile journey home and the necessary body clock adjustments.

Ronny will also have to counsel Kieran Tierney, who has had another big week. Teenagers often progress in waves, after with each crest there’s often a trough. The focus for Kieran right now has to be 100% Hearts.

I read Leigh Griffiths had an uneventful game against Denmark. Don’t bet against him shining on Saturday. He’s a player who flourishes with a point to prove.

I’ve not written much on Resolution 12 recently and I don’t see that changing for a few weeks (despite the trolls), but I have been very active on the subject. Anyone who thinks I’d skip over this is welcome to self-certify as a mindless troll below (I’m counting on at least one being sufficiently mindless…).

What I’d like to do is mark your card on this one. Completely erroneous claims have been made. Outrageous things have been written. There’s a Kangaroo Court underway which would do Salem proud. Let the loons run with their agenda of running Celtic down, but be circumspect. Your card’s been marked.

You are being played, all right, but not by Celtic.

  5. What is the Stars on

    Bmcuwp and thomthetim,


    thanks for pointing out my intentions


    It’s amazing how many times we misinterpret posts on here. ..All of us myself included.


    Mr Pastry,


    No problem


    Proud bhoy


    Sorry to hear that sad news for you and your family. I hope he had a long and happy life.

    What would you like Celtic to call them?

    Not a word to confirm or deny.


    The murky world of scoddish fitba eh


    Wha’s like us:)




  8. The Resolute Mr Pastry on

    THEEXILEDTIM@5:57 I agree with your points – it’s the proof issue that worries me.



    There can only be two places to lay the blame – as you say, either the SFA, Rangers, or perhaps a combination of the two.



    Was it deceit by Rangers? – was it maladministration in the SFA? – was it collusion and conspiracy?



    When the complete story is known, then we would all expect the Celtic board to make an announcement – bearing in mind that they may have been the biggest losers – however remember there is also another loser in Kilmarnock – would they make a case?

  9. Proudbhoy,



    Thanks for the kind comments, my son was born a few months after my own father’s passing so I know what you are feeling. Some other time hopefully.






    Thanks for coming over, I am delighted you had such a good time. I’ll hopefully catch up at Celtic Park soon.

  10. Another good Good Friday agreement by the Appeal Commission 25/3/16 virtually unreported in SMSM



    Rangers FC (now Liquidated) were found , GUILTY by an independent Commission appointed by the Scottish Premier League and chaired by Lord Nimmo Smith, alongside QCs Nicholas Stewart and Charles Flint. The Commission, who were unanimous in their decision, ruled on 28th February 2013, that they found Rangers FC (now Liquidated) GUILTY of numerous counts of rule-breaking and contraventions of the rules of Association Football, and fined them £250,000. On 25th March 2016, this ruling was upheld on appeal, finally forcing Rangers FC (now Liquidated) to pay for their systematic and repeated law-breaking.



    The Commission unanimously ruled that Rangers FC (now Liquidated) were :



    Guilty of failing to inform the SPL and SFA of the existence of EBT side letters.


    Guilty of non-payment of PAYE, VAT and National Insurance contributions in excess of £13 million.


    Guilty of non-payment of money due to Dunfermline as per the rules of the Scottish Premier League.


    Guilty of non-payment of money due to Dundee United for a Scottish Cup tie as per the rules of the SFA.


    Guilty of non-payment of money to the SFA in relation to the rules of competition in the Scottish Cup.


    Guilty of failing to make proper disclosure of payments to players.


    Guilty of failing to make proper disclosure of Craig Whyte’s disqualification from being a company director.


    Guilty of failing to comply with the rules of the PLUS Stock Exchange by not disclosing Whyte’s disqualification.


    Guilty of failing to lodge annual accounts by 31 December, 2011 as required by the Companies Act 2006.


    Guilty of failing to hold an annual general meeting by 1 January, 2012 as required by the Companies Act 2012.


    Guilty of an insolvency event.




  11. The Resolute Mr Pastry on

    BOURNESOUPRECIPE@6:21 – Top class intervention – the kind of posts I like – full of evidence and free from speculation and prejudice.

  12. No verification of how PL voted or indeed whether he voted at all. Didn’t stop a good few from going ballistic on the night assuming it to be true though.


    Who needs verification when you can have a tear up on rumour.

  13. Margaret McGill on

    You say you want a resolution


    Well, you know


    We all want to change the world


    But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Pete


    You ain’t going to get anything no not a peep.


    Don’t you know know it’s gonna be a fight!


    Alright, alright

  14. Margaret McGill on

    corkcelt on 30th March 2016 6:29 pm


    he was on the SFA panel/board that voted him as fit and proper. He was 1 of 8. Wouldnt you like to know how the chief executive of Celtic PLC voted? I do.

  15. Mr Pastry


    Look at things from a different viewpoint then.


    Lets say Celtic know the info is foolproof and they do, they know that contacting uefa will open the box and they will have no control over what happens next, I could believe that, don’t agree with it, but Celtic are maybes being conservative and hedging their bets.


    The silence from the sfa is damming imo, if they were sure that the Res 12 guys didn’t have the proof they would be telling everyone, you can be sure of that.


    And I have seen the proof.








    Minor details, minor details Timmy.


    You forgot to say they didn’t gain any sporting advantage :-)







    Magic catching up wi you,mate. Always a pleasure,as were each and all.

  17. The Resolute Mr Pastry on

    I resolutely defend and support the right of shareholders to raise a resolution at our AGM.



    I resolutely believe that there must be a satisfactory answer to any such resolution.



    I resolutely condemn attempts to smear Celtic by anyone using rumour and prejudiced speculation.



    My resolution is constant.

    Margaret McGill on 30th March 2016 6:13 pm



    Been off. Not read back.





    Any verification PL voted DK fit and proper?


    – See more at: http://www.celticquicknews.co.uk/leigh-kieran-marking-your-card/comment-page-5/#comments



    Not that I’ve seen and I sincerely doubt that PL would have voted in favour of the GASL.



    That JJ fella is worth the watching primarily because he changes his mind, his facts and his opinions as often as he changes his socks. He came to my attention on twitter when some of his posts were retweeted onto my timeline by other Celts.



    At that time he (jj) was posting on a sevco forum as ‘sit on fence’ (possibly mcmurdo’s? although the site name escapes me ). His views at that time were that King was a bad yin which, as you can imagine, did not go down at all well with the knuckle dragging zombie hoards.



    The reason I’m giving this wee bit of background is that at that time he also espoused the ‘fact’ that sevco were the same club as deidco. He reiterated that view on numerous occasions. However, since starting his own blog, he has since done a complete 180 on the same club myth.



    In one of his earlier pieces (on his new blog) he also stated as a ‘fact’ that PL either voted against King or abstained.



    There’s no doubt that the JJ fella is a clever guy. There’s no doubt that he has a personal gripe with the GASL.



    Those two things are not in question.



    But, and it’s a humongous hun of a but, this guy and his info are not to be trusted and he is certainly no friend of Celtic.



    imo, of course




    Prayers for your dear dad. I know from personal experience how much the love and prayers you’ll receive from the extended Celtic family via cqn can help.



    KTF pal



    HH jamesgang




    Very sad news about your Dad.



    Prayers said for those who remain.



    May your Dad rest in peace.

  21. 67Heaven .. CHALLENGING THE LIE ..I am wee Oscar...... Ipox belongs to the creditors on

    My correspondence on RES12 with JPT….



    Thank you for your quick response, John Paul



    I would suggest our Board is certainly acting in the best (financial only) interest of the Club, but their (financial) perception needs to be tempered with a measure of morality, and the pursuit of justice for decades of bare-faced corruption / cheating emanating from the SFA and oldco …..even now, sevco are producing UNAUDITED accounts with impunity….



    I will continue to closely monitor the situation prior to deciding whether or not I want to (financially) support an errant Board……HH

    Hi 67Heaven



    Thank you for your email, I’m aware there has been a lot of discussion around this matter and the comments and feedback I’ve received have been passed on. As you would expect I am not in a position to offer comment on matters of this nature nor am I fully aware of all the background information.



    What I can say is that as a rule the Club does not tend to comment on social media exchanges, however the Club has been in dialogue with the shareholders involved in resolution 12 from the 2013 AGM and this will continue.



    The Club’s Board always act in the best interests of Celtic, that is their primary objective, there is no motivation to do otherwise and this will continue to be the case.

    Subject: Res12






    Please let PL know that I will be one of the many Celtic Supporters who will not be renewing my SB next season if a response to Phil’s questions on Res 12 is not forthcoming ……. with commercial considerations taking precedence over all other considerations, we will no longer be ‘a Club like no other’, and that is a sad indictment on our current custodians…..

  22. However Sportsmail understands that, after ruling on Murray, members of the PGB now want clarification on why they were excluded from voting on King.



    The current PGB consists of Rod Petrie (Hibs), Neil Doncaster (SPFL), Ralph Topping (SPFL), Peter Lawwell (Celtic), Duncan Fraser (Aberdeen), Mike Mulraney (Alloa), Sandy Stables (Highland League), Andrew Waddell (Lowland League), Stewart Regan (SFA chief executive), Campbell Ogilvie (SFA President) and Alan McRae (first vice-president of the SFA).



    The main SFA board consists of Regan, Ogilvie, McRae, Petrie, Barrie Jackson, the independent non-executive director, Peter Lawwell, Ralph Topping and Tom Johnston of the Junior FA.






    Never call for a vote until you know you can win it ?

    They obviously have deep pockets, £30 mill down the clyde in the last three years, it’s a wonder they are still breathing, but they are, sadly.
