Spartak sack manager Emeri after derby defeat


Spartak Moscow today sacked manager Unai Emeri after a 1-5 home league defeat against eight placed Dinamo Moscow.  Spartak are confirmed as bottom of Celtic’s Champions League group before they head to Celtic Park for the final game on 5 December.

Emeri has been increasingly unpopular since taking over earlier this year when his spell at Valencia ended, while rumours of dissent in the dressing room were never far away.  I had hoped he would remain in place for the visit to Glasgow but there will be a new man in charge by then.

A group of around 200 supporters demonstrated after the game, many chanting for the foreign players to ‘Go home’.

    Question. Was the finding of the First Tier Tribunal not merely round 2 of rankers tax case, HMRC having found them guilty in the first instance?


    If so that makes it one all, and if as looks likely HMRC will appeal, then surely in football terms this is now down to a replay to decide the winner.

    Atajic swung the corner in and with a glancing header Joe Chalmers bulleted the ball into the net. The Hoops take the lead again.

    I’d like to think I am behind Neil Lennon too but I am in no Blind Faith camp. That phrase carries overtones of unthinking support and a suspension of critical faculties.



    My support for Neil Lennon is based on a proven and tangible record of achievement. It is evidence based and can be demonstrated. It is not just based on an opinion to be granted equal validity to the “Lenny is crap” school of thought.

    Ogilvie has been in Swizerland recently .. His SFA gig earns him a gig on one of UEFA’ s many jobs for the boys / lots of meetings / lots of expenses but never actually do anything things.

  14. 67Heaven … I am Neil Lennon..!!.. Ibrox belongs to the creditors



    hadn’t thought of that…maybe it wasn’t such a good lie in after all, anyway, all we can do is beat Spartak and see what happens in Spain. I’d settle for a win and accept what happens after that either way.
