Remarkable distractions need to end

424

The worst way to end a bad week was for a loose-mouthed agent to pitch up at Lennoxtown on Friday before setting off on a rant because Brendan Rodgers was not available to him at a time he wanted.  We had a remarkable week of distractions in and around the dressing room.  These things often correlate with a poor result.

Brendan would be pleased to get his players out of the country yesterday, giving him two days to focus the squad on the matter in hand – tomorrow night’s Champions League qualifier against AEK Athens.  This is where the manager earns his money.

Only a unified squad will have a chance of getting the required result against AEK.  The better players in the first leg against AEK were these settled at Celtic for the long-term – McGregor, Brown, Tierney, Ntcham, Forrest.  Tactical conversations will be needed, but the first thing Brendan needs to infuse into the squad is a laser-like focus.

  1. does anyone know the full extent of Lewis Morgan’s injury , no updates or cause reported or have i missed something , just seems strange a player plays a full season then comes to us and then goes awol.

  2. Somehow I prefer us when we have a fightin’ spirit about the camp……..

     

     

    I’m always too nervous when it comes to the bhoys, especially in Europe but I travel in hope that we upset the odds and the sleekit huns.

     

     

    Scoddland has let the dugs loose on us,………… – a strong, controlled and united front should keep thum at bay…and hopefully we don’t throw thum any more bones!

  3. Presently persisting of rain in Forres, could maybe do with that in Athens. Starry, Faith being kept but as my dear old mammy used to say “expect the worst and you’ll never be disappointed.”

     

    Unfortunately, I left my IPad in Glasgow and I am currently using my original IPad to post – slow doesn’t cover it! ?

  4. An elevated section of the Italian A10 motorway, which cuts through Genova/Genoa, has collapsed after a torrential downpour.

     

     

    Emergency services believe there could be dozens of casualties.

  5. Jamesgang – Thoughts and prayers with your friend Kevin, his family and friends at this time.
