I don’t like playing games when players have transfer or contract business swirling around the dressing room. Give a team an excuse to underperform and they tend to grab it, so I expect a difficult challenge at Easter Road tomorrow. If we want to maintain our unbeaten run and two month old clean sheet record we’ll need to bring our A game.
Neil Lennon’s comments at yesterday’s media conference, about potentially dropping players who plan to leave in the summer, point in this direction. Few manage to perform with an eye on their next gig.
Well done to the new regime at Newco Rangers who used Latin in their stock market announcement yesterday. There was no “ex-gratia” payment to resigning director, Brian Stockbridge, who instead had his contract paid up.
Paying Stockbridge in full is hardly a money saver but with him not around it will sweeten the medicine others will have to take and allow a fresh angle to be pitched to supporters at season ticket renewal time. Let’s hope their manager sticks to his contractual guns.
Daily Record columnist, Chris Sutton, has today made the case for Neil Lennon to leave Celtic and move to England. Nice one, Chris. If you hand around long enough to get to see it all.
