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.

    Jiggery-poakerry on a grand scale will take place to ensure


    that the huns get promoted this season and, when they do


    there will be violence in all the stadiums that they visit with


    the media portraying them as the ‘victims’ back for revenge.


    If, there isny a Jungle type of area built next to were the animals


    will be sitting next season then, I think that the Celtic support of


    today might find that the animals will have any Tim within close


    proximity marked down for a ‘death-wish’ THAT’s how serious


    this is.


    Dont say yezz wurny telt.


    Bring back the Jungle & gerrintae the bassas – CSC


    Hail Hail

  2. Listening to shortbread announcing the half time scores. He named Gretna 2008. No mention of any year when calling out thems score. No hint of irony. Hunbelievable.




    Is there anyone who can help me obtain 2 tickets for the El Classico derby between Barca and RM ,which will be played in March 2015 at the Nou Camp?

    That’s why if, there was Celtic / Fan / Supporter / Tim / Jungle-rebel


    incharge of the club then, the SMSM would be banned – persona non grata.


    That’s the ‘entire’ SMSM banned – not the peashooter job done on Hugh Keevins,


    that was cheap and cowardly. imho

    Good to hear mate and really looking forward to it.



    Are you going to the day out next weekend?

  12. adi_dasler



    Apparently it’s a dodge from Lawwell to cut the electricity bill by not needing the floodlights for the earlier kick off time:o)





    To keep me and my Dad outa the pub.



    Fiendish cunning will be required.

  14. the glorious balance sheet on

    Steven Fletcher scores a double for Sunderland….his first goals in 2014.

  15. adi_dasler



    It was discussed here earlier today. I believe it is a trial to gauge fans views on travelling to and from games in daylight during winter months.

  16. Adi



    Dunno the reasoning but it was a Celtic hierarchy decision.



    I heard Hamilton Chief, Ronald McDonald on shortbread speaking to the Reverend’s boy and the Fat ‘support your local team’ one (ironically he was born in Hamilton).



    Anyhoo, the big Ginger Clown said that celtic contacted them to ask for the time change

  17. Lennybhoy



    I’ll be there. Might last a wee bit more than a couple of hours mind:o)

    That’s true, but Graeme was a magnificent athlete and disciple of the Deila Diet Plan.



    Actually, the great Johan was getting on by then and way past his best, if my memory serves me right. He did of course play us in the 1970s.

  19. My two friends gave all the door money for the club night they do to Maryhill Food Bank last night. £5k



    So a big well done to Optimo and all that attended or contributed in other ways.


    From Sporting-Life site….



    “A dangerous cross flashed across the Liverpool box, but no one is there to meet it. Samaras has the chance to keep it alive, but somehow conspires to fall over his own feet and deflect the ball for a Liverpool throw”.



    Plus ca change.

  21. A Ceiler Gonof Rust on

    The deid heids on hun media are going ape over the livi match program. The program mentions the admin and liqidation in 2012 and refers to them as “the team then called rangers”. ha ha. It goes on to say their 140 years of success was consigned to history. They’re not liking that one bit:-)



    Livi, telling it like it is. Will they be bullied into an apology like montrose were.
