Murty again undermined ahead of Celtic game

379

One lesson on what happens when you undermine your manager in the days before facing Celtic was not enough for Newco, who today let it be known Steve Gerrard is on their shortlist when they tell Graeme Murty he will not retain the job.

One of the worst things for a football club is irrelevance, so this chat about Gerrard has achieved some merit – they are being reported.  The ‘news’ may or may not have more substance than earlier news, that Derek McInnes was about to be appointed manager, but giving your supporters reason to believe they are relevant is worth something.

The seven thousand or so who will attend Celtic Park on Sunday (they should be there for the start of the game at least, although they tend to leave en-mass on conceding the fourth goal) will have a sprint in their step for the future.  It may even sustain them through what could be a harrowing Celtic experience, comforted in the knowledge that whatever happens, the future is yet to be mapped out.

This plays out differently in the dressing room.  Graeme Murty’s authority has been shot.  No wonder players can openly question the manager’s ability.  Even if this leaking of part of the short list sells a few season tickets, it will do nothing for the team on Sunday, much like Bitcoin bonus codes.

Murty must tactically prepare a team to deny Celtic the chance to win the championship.  On his day, he is capable of achieving this, on two occasions now he has taken a point from Celtic Park.  But these results were achieved when he arrived on the Celtic Way ahead of a united and embattled squad, with the support of board and fans.  Not the players don’t want him, the fans don’t want him and the board don’t even consider the task ahead of him when writing to fans or speaking to the media.

Steven Gerrard is, of course, another Celtic fan/brother and would become Newco’s third successive manager with these credentials.  He has been a regular at Celtic games for years.  You would be forgiven for regarding this persistent policy as flattery.  I don’t see any problems with the appointment.

Raffle to play in an 11-a-side game at Celtic Park

An incredible opportunity to play on the hallowed turf at Celtic Park around the end of the current season 2017-18, in Club sponsor Intelligent Car Leasing’s match.

You will be provided with complimentary Celtic kit and receive the full match-day experience including arrival through the front door, access to the dressing room and proudly walking down the tunnel to enter the famous field of play.

Both squads will be managed by a former Celtic player. Date 16 May, 11:00 kick off. All monies raised will be donated to Celtic FC Foundation, a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (number SC024648).

To enter the raffle, make a minimum donation of £5 to the Foundation at this MyDonate page.  Then send your donation confirmation email to this address: celticquicknews@gmail.com

The opportunity to play on Celtic Park is just beyond words.  I did it a few years ago, the memories will live forever, as will the photographs.  The experience of preparing in the dressing room, as so many greats have done before, was fabulous.

You can enter for yourself, or gift the prize to someone you know aged 18 or over. Competition closes at 15:00 this Friday, 27th.

Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice – I’m staying with a mate in central TO, not far from McVeighs so I think we might go there if they are showing it. My mate has told me to “relax” and that “he has it sorted”…a 7am start followed by a BlueJays game at 1pm could result in being in bed by evening time!!

    Actually a £1.50 booking charge for Coias might be a good idea.

    Too much confidence for my liking surrounding this game. I think Murty will believe if he wins every game in the split he should be given the job. He will be giving everything to achieve this.

     

     

    Every dog has it’s day, even a rabid mongrel with rabies. Let’s not be complacent.

  6. Ive said this before.

     

    I can get a ticket for the debenture seats at hampden. NO INTERNET CHARGE, NO DELIVERY CHARGE.

     

     

    So again, why do celtic have to charge for both these things.

  14. Celtic_Guks, I didn’t see MIT’s post but I’m sure he gave you good advice. McVeigh’s is a braw pub, I go there when I’m downtown; call and make sure the game is being shown. If you prefer I’m going to the Celtic club in Scarborough; I’d be happy to pick you and your mate up and drive you to and from?
