Our redoubtable former manager


No one on Celtic Quick News ever doubted Gordon Strachan, did they?

It’s been a long 8 years since that dark week but our former manager demonstrated enormous resilience to win three consecutive league titles and twice qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.  He is perfect for the Scotland role, although, to be frank, I didn’t think his squad had last night’s result in them.  Well done to all.

    Although to be very honest I hope thats the last game Gordon and Mark win. Historically the huns always Glock to hampdump when they are shite. The message about how much they bent backwards for them will soon trickle through to their tiny corrupt minds. The poorer the national team is the better for us.



    I would imagine even being photographed in the company of the SFA’s exec could come back to haunt you.



    The whole game is corrupt. A real shame

    delighted for WGS, I’d already noticed some knives out for him in our ever petty media from some quarters.



    bookies would have been delighted last night, they certainly got my £2 I had on croatia minus 3!

  5. Anyone even know a pub team who plays in the hoops. I need to go to a Celtic game!!




  6. “Some of these guys are good at saying what


    the fans want to hear, the former Motherwell


    born billionaire said. “McCoist’s a master at


    that. Crap manager, but good at the media.”


    “He’s been saved by this process.


    Disorganised guy. Desk in a total mess with


    papers from six months ago. He wouldn’t have


    been there if it weren’t for the admin process.”



    Don’t Sack McCoist!

    The discussion over the UEFA coefficiency over the last couple of days brought a consensus that it works against Celtic. I never realised for example that domestic success, while getting you into UEFA tournaments, is not a factor when it comes to a team’s relative position, but that the form of the national team is. Croatia’s ranking favours Dynamo Zagreb, Scotland’s works against Celtic. And of course the farce of Arsenal celebrating fourth and further down the road to the groups, while we are winning the title. So, like it or not, we not only need Celtic to do well over the next few seasons, we also need Scotland to do better. So congratulations to Gordon Strachan, every little helps.

  10. when I go abroad (not when i’m abroad I know you lot) I never claim to be anything other than Scottish…because scotlands national team is supported by buns why should that stop us they are famous for their George crosses and rule brittania etc they don’t know what they want green and whyte saltires at every international (intended) that will let them and us know who is supporting who…..and rubbing their bluenoses in it. as well as helping our co-efficient (Celtics) as celtic mac just pointed out

  11. I wish WGS / Marco Van Pieman all the best in what is a thankless job.



    Still wouldn’t draw the curtains to watch the SFA team if they were playing in my back green.



    Hail Hail

    Enjoyed last nights victory.After some of the comments that had apparently came from the Croatian camp it was good to see Scotland win.Have to agree with the boy jinky,it’s as much our country as theirs.

  15. Been a long time since the majority of that mob supported Scotland.Easy formula for me”If they dont like it,I love it”.Love to see WGS doing well.

    Been watching a lot of Celtic videos on youtube recently – wee Aiden McGeady fairly terrorised the Oldco and European teams defenses he did. Break the bank Dermot Desmond and bring Aiden McGeady back home.

    Celtic Mac. The performance of the national team is not included in the calculation for club coefficients. See here for the calculation.



    The basis for the UEFA coefficients is the performance of teams in the European Cups during a five year period. During that period each team gets two points for a win and one point for a draw (see below for matches in qualifying rounds).



    In addition one bonus point is allocated for reaching the quarter final, the semi final and the final. Qualification for the group-stage of the Champions League is awarded with 4 bonus points (from 2004-2009: 3 bonus points, from 1995-2004: 1 point, before 1995: 2 points). Qualification for the first knock-out round of the Champions League yields 5 bonus points (from 2004-2009: 1 bonus point, before 2004: no bonus).



    UEFA Country Ranking


    For the calculation of the country ranking, points in qualification matches are halved: one point for a win and half a point for a draw. Before 1999 the usual two points for a win and one point for a draw were also used in qualifying rounds.


    The so-called UEFA coefficients are calculated by taking an average, based on the total number of points divided by the total number of teams of each country. See the country coefficients of 2012 for an example of such a calculation.



    The UEFA country ranking is computed by the sum of 5 coefficients in the last 5 years.



    Only the performances of clubs, individually, or collectively for the country coefficient, in the Champions League and Europa League have a bearing.
