Tickets please


Have we progressed since the early season shambles against Legia and Maribor?  Of course, we are winning regularly and playing with confidence, but it’s clear there’s also a lot more work to do.  Celtic’s best performance of the season so far was in Salzburg, a more favourable wind would have seen us leave with three points, but that performance also stung Salzburg, who saw their aspirations to win the group take a hit.

It will take our best performance of the season to return a win tonight, but I’m expecting nothing less.

Sir David Murray has stuck to his “duped” story.  Craig Whyte’s chosen path for Rangers was a surprise to him.  This account is now to be explored in the witness box at the trial of the Ibrox Five.  I suspect I could script Murray’s evidence myself, “duped”, “shocked”, “best interests of…”

Of vastly more interest will be Alastair Johnston’s evidence.  Johnston and his independent board committee opposed Whyte’s takeover and made representations to Murray, which will also be revealed in the witness box.

News that Craig Whyte was arrested in Mexico and is now likely to be subject to extradition proceedings will be welcomed by few of the characters in this messy business.  Whyte, as we know, recorded everything.  He will be a difficult man to setup as a patsy.

The only questions is, how do I get court tickets?

Three points tonight, please, Celtic.

  8. Nobody can raise even an eyebrow when Burghbhoy makes what is ostensibly a whacky prediction after his previous prediction…..was it 6-0 v Partick?

    After Murray, Keith Jackson did most to lead the gullible Clive Dunns up the garden path.



    Its always baffled me why he never gets a mention on their hate hitlist. No, to them its…Craigy Chucky, PL, The Vatican, Reid, NL, Doncaster, Hutton, Dundee Utd, the sheep, etc, everyone bar the real culprits.

    Arthur Monford’s famous Hunty-Gout about the rubber golf clubs was 1962.
