Motherwell inflame and fail to learn lessons


Two games into a three game run against Motherwell I would expect to have a bit of claret and amber fatigue. But frankly, I can’t wait to get stuck into them tomorrow. I know we took the cup on Sunday, and rescued our Invincibility-ness on Wednesday, but their manager’s inappropriate reaction after the final, then the club’s statement, where they assert referee decisions affected both games, whereas “should any evidence exist” that missiles were thrown at Celtic players, they will act.

So evidence might not exist? Maybe Leigh Griffiths brought that bottle onto the field himself and the coins dropped from Mikael Lustig’s waste-band.

Very clever, Motherwell. What actually happened was your manager inflamed your fans ahead of Wednesday, then your stewards failed to even look at the crowd while missiles were raining on Celtic players. Then your subsequent statement assured everyone that you had no evidence of wrongdoing.

You condoned the actions of your players, who learned nothing after Sunday and repeated the same mistakes on Wednesday. You fail to condemn your fans after Wednesday, who will learn only that there are no consequences for their actions.

Can we talk about Celtic for a moment?

If Celtic is your thing, and you will be at tomorrow’s game, you can contribute to the Foundation Bucket Collection. The Foundation feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless and comforts those in deprivation, all in your name.

It is a magnificent gift to us as Celtic supporters. Nowhere else in the football world does an organisation of such scope and action exist.

Bring some cash and join the Movement.

    Same Quack did a Viral Pneumonia vac on the other arm – bigger needle -no after effects at all . Maybe that went into the deltoid .. Viral pneumonia hysteria here — lots of the pour souls who cross the Med from Libya have viral pneumonia . Apparently the hell hole holding camps in Libya are louping with viral pneumonia ( and lots of other horrible things !!!!)

    Not good for the migrants or the Italian authorities trying to cope with the needs of the people, terrible situation for all concerned.

  5. Jimtim- They don’t try to hide the hatred and bias ……the Club should do more , stick up for players booked for having bottles thrown at them, players called cheats, grafitti from 5 years ago being passed off as new, but we all know they won’t.

  13. Bada .surely there has to come a point when we say enough is enough . Regards the bbc this is a national broadcaster , supposedly for everyone .not us . I had this debate with auldheed years ago .he knew the guy at the back of this hatred at the beeb .why has this guy not been pulled up .

  14. Just saw Paul doing the Foundation bucket collection, he’s been standing there for 3 hours and is absolutely freezing!



    A wee mention on the new CQN book, Jim Craig – Right Back to 67, A Lisbon Lion Diary.



    This launches on Wednesday when Jim will hold a press conference at Celtic Park. He’ll then head off back to my place to sign all the books already ordered and add the personal dedications submitted on CQN.



    We will post them all out on Thursday.



    If you want a signed book order at and to add a personal dedication email and i’ll confirm receipt and sort for you.



    I’m away to eat my pre-game pie. Interesting team!
