Riches available for Ronny, now let Imran retire to Charlotte Sq

424

The point was made several times below yesterday’s article that Ronny Deila needs a full strength team on the park tomorrow, as well as an impressive performance and result, which is hard to argue with.

The possibility that Scott Brown could return, as well as potential debuts for Aleks Tonev, Wakaso Mubarak, Stefan Scepovic and John Guidetti gives the manager an embarrassment of riches.  Enormous changes are needed, but their introduction needs to be measured.  Aberdeen will arrive having beaten us home and away last season; their Cup win at Celtic Park [a successful ground all round for them recently]was particularly impressive.

The Scottish media were clearly briefed that Mike Ashley was set to dump ownership of Newcastle United to take control of the dump in Govan, which was reported in good faith, but unfortunately for those hoping the Sports Direct owner would buy into the Rangers International share issue will be disappointed.  This morning a statement from Ashley read, “I will not be participating in the Open Offer which closes at 11am today, Friday September 12, 2014”.

I’m sure the Easdales and our man Philip Nash have another buyer swooping to the rescue.  Maybe our other pal Imran!

In a busy morning at Newco they settled with former director Imran Ahmed, who had claimed £625k in monies owed and costs.  You may consider Ahmed has a brass-plated neck to squeeze the pips from the club he co-founded two years ago, but when so many others in the management team have been superbly compensated, there was little chance he would hold his hands up and leave without consideration.

Hopefully the Scottish media will allow him to retire to Charlotte Square and put the matter behind him, before any embarrassing insolvency event, as is the way around these parts.

Many thanks for the magnificent response to the Magners’ competition, which has now closed.  Special thanks to those of you who helped Mary’s Meals at this difficult time for aid agencies in Africa.

I have the photos from the second and third school kitchens you financed for Mary’s Meals in Malawi.  The mood on the blog has been so…. challenging in recent times I wasn’t sure how to introduce anything off-message, but we’ll profile them soon.

There is also a survey coming up next week.  I’ve been working with a (proper) academic from our community who suggested we should record exactly who we, the Celtic support, are, in 2014.  Planning to run from Monday, so look out for it.

The draw for tomorrow’s tickets will be made shortly so check your inbox.

    So Ian Paisley is dead. I believe this man kept the troubles going instea of looking for peace. A man of god my arse.

     

     

    As I posted last week. He was highly instruemental in stirring the pot in the 1960s.

    Biblical citation or formation for tomorrow with prediction of 1st to get injured?

  3. Just seen the news there ,a man who was ill for a long time has died .i always liked him

     

    Donald Sinden RIP

  4. Hendrix

     

     

    I agree… I never post negatively when someone dies

     

     

    He is the only man I will make an exception for…

     

     

    Im heading to West Belfast tonight for a party and I will party even harder now

     

     

    ‘Rest in Pish’ indeed

  5. Regardless of folks’ voting intentions next week, the fact that the polls are still suggesting something close to 50/50 – despite the scale of the Establishment and Media onslaught – has got to be acknowledged as nothing short of incredible.

  6. Frank Ryan's Whiskey on

    The Rev Ian Paisley joining Maggie in the warm place. Well at least that means one less ‘Ulster Scot’ at Saturday’s ‘wee’ march.

  7. Pretty grey day here in Manchester. Reflects the mood after the dogs home fire.

     

     

    People have raised over half a million in a day though. It puts a bit of faith back into humanity.

  8. HT

     

     

    not sure anyone is defending his views on Catholic education.

     

     

    Is he just a bigot in relation to Catholocism or is he a bigot in general?

     

     

    As I stated earlier i hadn’t come across him personally until he appeared on our screens but did know of the Green parties secular education policy. I have neither listened to him on the subject or know his reason for wanting the removal of Catholic education from schools. Is it because he hates Catholics or is it because he believes all schooling should be religous free? If it is the later than he is not a bigot on this subject but if it is the first then I agree he is a bigot on this subject.

  9. Even those Deep in secretive orders have that chance to renounce Lucifer, up until their dying Breath, and I’m sure as anything that God is a much better Judge than anyone on this Earth. LOL, it is his Creation after all, he did jump in and jump around for a while, split Time itself.

     

     

    You all know the jibber jabber.

     

     

    I hope Ian Paisley is Heaven with Everyone of us, when you reject God though, yer dancing on thin ice…IMO.

  10. I think Imran got the Chinnesse whisper from one of his pals in the know, and told him to take what he can get as there will be fuxk all left after this weekend, just a thought.

    Intrigued by your Charlotte Sq reference.

    Can’t wait for some mealy mouthed comments from Gerry and Martin.

  12. MWD

     

     

    Don’t have the time or inclination just now for pedantics.

     

     

    His is the only political party that has advocated the closure of Catholic schools.

     

     

    Go figure.

  13. Kilbowie Kelt will vote YES on

    Podium post on the new article plus first post following Paul’s New Article announcement on the old post… Now that is truly Taking The Piste.

     

     

    He was a flawed man who did a lot of damage, but may Ian Paisley rest in peace.

  14. Paisley dead…..?

     

     

    Never Never Never

     

     

    Seriously the NI omni potent unionist will lead to a lot of no surrender stuff in the media

     

     

    How this will affect the Scottish referendum is hard to say

     

     

    Some might be inclined to vote nay after seeing IP videos featuring his famous battle cries of no surrender

     

     

    For others it may swing them to the aye side, the black and white footage of old unionism is quite scary.

     

     

    Expect a minutes silence or standing still at the OO march in Edinburgh

  15. So that most divisive of figures in life brings together TD and HT in his death!

     

     

    So at least he achieved 1 positive thing over 9 decades. Hardly prodigious in the ‘love your neighbour’ stakes!

    One could simply turn that a*se over tit and say ‘despite the extent of relentless misinformation, dodgy propoganda, and minipulation of figures by the Nats.

     

     

    Depends which side of the fence you sit CSC.

    I think you just broke the record for the most amount of “fly kicks” at sevco in one article. You’re a bad man.

  18. Paul67,

     

     

    If Bugatti scores for fun, I’m sure he will here, have Celtic already agreed a permanent deal?

     

     

    It is good that he isn’t burdened by that number 7 shirt.

     

     

    What is wrang with number 9 anyway?

     

     

    ;))

    MWD..,

     

    People are not forced to send their children to denominational schools, so why is it ok for atheists to force non denominational schools on people who believe in god ?

  20. Hope we get the new bhoys on the pitch tomorrow. Wakasu, Scepovic & Guidetti to start and, if fit, Tonev on the bench.

     

    Brown’s return will be just as important as the new bhoys. Been badly missed in his absence.

    Not sure he needed to hear any whispers, TD – he’s been after his money for a while on the basis that he knows the whole operation is FUBAR.

  22. I’m also not too sure were the ‘This is not about characters or politics’ is coming from.

     

     

    The whole campaign is basded on the political future of Scotland. It is being fronted by characters, some I like, some I dislike, some I haven’t heard of and others i’m neither here nor there about on both sides.

     

     

    For example as a Pollok bhoy I have a real dislike for tommy Sherridan, I’m neither here not there about GG, I’m not too keen on Alex Salmond, I liked Margot mcDonald and I like her husband Jim and I am a YES voter. There is no one I like that I know of on the Yes side although I do give credit to Ruth Davidson and Danny Alexander for being able to speak well on there side of the debate.

    Very sad to learn that Ian Paisley has died.My deepest sympathy to his wife Eileen & family.Once political opponents – I have lost a friend.

    I am not an athiest. i am slowly coming back to the Catholic religion after years away. i still would not send my kid to a Catholic school and would prefer all schools to have no ties to religion what so ever. I would not force anyone to refrain from sending their child to a Catholic education school. they exist for a reason in this country and it is not because they felt superior. I would not support any attempt to remove Catholic schooling.

     

     

    I’m unsure why you asked me that wuaestion as my response to Philvis I thought portrayed my view on this well enough.

     

     

    But hey.

     

     

    Now find an athiest and ask them.

     

     

    MWD says AYE

  25. Guidetti looks like the personality player we have lacked for a few years.Maybe if he scores a few and the fans take to him,he might have found a new home for a few years ,rather than being bounced around loan clubs.

  26. jamesgang 12:51,

     

     

    That is a hun formation. :))

     

     

    The culmination was Manchester.

     

     

    Love conquers Everything.

     

     

    The Truth should always be put on a Pedestal, no matter how many people it upsets.

     

     

    The Truth fecking hurts so much, it is almost tangible.

    “One could simply turn that a*se over tit and say ‘despite the extent of relentless misinformation, dodgy propoganda, and minipulation of figures by the Nats.”

     

     

    Both sides would throw that accusation at each other’s campaigns. The same can’t be said of the Establishment and Media involvement though.

  28. “Matthew 7:1-3”

     

     

    I’m pretty sure he’s injured Pete;)

     

     

    Bit defensive for the sheep is it no?
