Respect deserved


We’ve seen a few difficult games against Hamilton Accies in recent years, including what proved to be a costly draw after being denied a late winner at New Douglas Park, but we’ve never met them in this form.

Hamilton have the longest unbeaten run in Scotland.  They lost their opening league game of the season, at home to Inverness, but have won seven and drawn two of their subsequent nine games.  Their 0-4 win away to Motherwell last week was a display of sharp, organised football – and remember, Motherwell took at point at Celtic Park the previous weekend.

Alex Neil will have no intentions of leaving pointless tomorrow.  This is the game he and his players will have been waiting for since the fixtures were announced four months ago.  Their four SPLF away games: wins at St Mirren, Partick and Motherwell, and a draw at Tannadice, has been preparation for Celtic Park.

If Celtic have a Europa League hangover, Accies will boss them.  Forget the lowly status of the club, respect is needed if we are the get the desired result and performance required.

I’m running the Great Scottish Run in aid of Celtic Foundation tomorrow morning, which presents a, erm, personal hygiene challenge for the game.  It’ll be a full can of deodorant day.  If you have a £1 or two for the fundraising, you can help here.

Poor sensitive souls, how long before sleekit accidentally slips the column writers name out.? And what part of deid club dont they understand ?

    Bognorbhoy, thanks for posting the Aztec Camera How men are video last night.



    Great stuff. Very mature lyrics written by a twenty three year old Roddy Frame.



    Thanks again.



    I can’t make the game today due to a family commitment, let’s hope the players get their jobs done well.

    hope you are improving.does yir da know everyone talks about him like that.

  5. Re stupid Huns……


    This from this morning’s Sunday Post.



    The most important thing for the Ibrox club is simply to gain promotion back to the Premier League to complete their recovery from liquidation.



    The author is no less than a former SFE CEO, Gordon Smith.



    Two wee thoughts, Gordon,



    Nobody “recovers” from liquidation,


    If the Championship is the best league in the world why are Rangers so anxious to get out of it?

    Are we going to be subjected to this diet controversy for the rest of Ronny’s reign?



    Get rid of the boozers and wasters. Pronto.

  8. Captain Beefheart on

    Those pesky continentals expose our fatties, boozers and wasters time and time again. Before anyone mentions Sutton, Hartson, Lennon and Seville, we lost.

  9. Thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Allan Henning today I can’t begin to imagine how devastated they will be feeling following his senseless murder.


    The man had a big heart which was obviously full of love and compassion for his fellow man regardless of creed or colour.It is very difficult to find anything positive to say at times like this ,but we should all remember and focus on the enormous contribution that this selfless hero has made to the countless poor souls that he has helped.


    I hope to god that his legacy will be that it brings decent Christians and Muslims closer together and unifies both sides in standing against these murderers.
