One team in Glasgow


The stage is set for a magnificent Celtic occasion but these days often don’t go to plan.  Celtic are champions, solvent, united and planning for Champions League qualification next season.  Their opponents are none of these things but they remain a formidable team who have four and three goals past Celtic on two occasions this season.

Anyone who thinks tomorrow will be a procession is palpably wrong, Rangers will present as great a challenge as Celtic have faced since slipping out of the Europa League.  Out opponents will be motivated by the enormous events taking place in their club at the moment; they are playing for self-respect.

Rangers are also a conundrum; both robust and fragile.  Elbows McCulloch will stamp his brand of influence all over the field, the chances of no Celtic player picking up an injury are low, but at the same time, touch them in and around the Celtic box and they will collapse in a heap.

We can hope for a big win but any win will do.

One* team in Glasgow,
There’s only one team in Glasgow.
One team in Glasgow,
There’s only one team in Glasgow.

*excluding, juniors, youths, lower leagues, amateurs and Celtic Ladies.

  1. The police say 5,000 on the march?? Every other estimate I’ve seen is between 1,000 and 2,000.



    Funny that the police give the highest estimate of attendance.The usual rule of thumb for demos is to take an average of the organisers’ overestimate and the police’s underestimate to get a decent figure. Guess that only works for left wing protests, not hun ones.

    I don’t agree with the carnage scenario….



    Once they’re liquidated they’ll disapear like snow off a dyke…as they do every summer after they fail to win the league.



    Glory hunters only….the lot of them.

  3. Given the uncertainty over THEIR immediate future, a couple of choruses of Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when’ might not go adrift tomorrow. Or would that simply be malicious?

    Like your last comment ..we’re simply malicious..



    And with long memories why not?

  8. Watching the Wigan game and I am reminded of a sore point that I have had for a long time with regard to the fitness levels of Celtic players. Today’s example of Maloney and in particular Caldwell , who looks like he has lost 8 kg’s from his Celtic days bring the message home to me again. We can go further back to Boruc and Hartley but even today,sadly, I get the feeling that if Hooper went to Southampton and Commins went to West Brom or wherever I would expect to see them at least 3 kg’s lighter. This is a huge opportunity for us and I am concerned about this situation which has been around for many years. Of course we have some very naturally fit players but it is the ones who have to work at it that don’t appear to get there at our club. Somehow the English teams have a level of fitness that we can but aspire to and I don’t really get it. I would say McGeady was the last player that I could visibly see a marked improvement in his physique and fitness levels. It puzzles me as I am sure the facilities are all in place. Any thoughts?

  9. NatKnow - "We welcome the paper-chase..." on

    “Once people implement something, we (the RFFF) as a body have a mandate from supporters to carry out whatever actions we deem fit.”



    At least the RFFF plan is now clear – threaten everyone in order to make the Bad Thing to go away. The kind of language they use is unbelievable. Their lack of self-reflection is remarkable. Their eagerness to blame everyone else is astounding. But what atrikes me more than anything else is….this is on the Official Club Website! This is the official line from RFC(IA)!!! Duff & Phelps are running the club – I’m guessing this is sanctioned by them???

    Been out of circulation for a bit.But there are times when you get a reminder from CQNers that certain people have Passed away over the years.Our dear friend Steve is the latest,it’s hard to write my thoughts on here about a friend whose company I enjoyed so much,so I’ll pass on that.



    I think DBBIA @ 10.45am was on the right track when he mentioned about the family that is left behind,I knew that he loved his son & daughter,Jonathon & Sara,my thoughts are with them at this time.




    Stephen would be well chuffed with you’re post, I’m not a wordsmith but from the heart ……


    I was lucky enough to meet Stephen, I bought loads of Cqn badges From him, he stayed in Blackpool with the family and I, went to a Celtic game with him, held a replica of the big cup, thanks to the original holy goalie, he was visiting the Greenock Celts………. Cheers big John Fallon.


    Memories are made of this.


    One Love


    Ps JP and the KF Celts …… Enjoy.
