Kris Commons looked like he had put a lot of practice into taking penalties yesterday. The ball was firmly hit and found the corner of the net, a feat which is far from impossible but which has been beyond various Celtic players for the last few years. We have little a little over a month before we could face a penalty kick competition against Juventus. Penalty kick practice should be on the menu every day between now and then, for the entire squad.
I’m delighted Lukasz Zaluska has had an extended run in the team. No player will be at his best if he is seldom tested and never in important games. Lukasz carried his share of the blame for last weekend’s Hampden defeat but not every keeper can pull off a Nigel Spink. Good to have Fraser back for Inverness.
If you read on a Celtic site that The Rangers chief executive and chairman are “at loggerheads” after “a chaotic week of back-biting” or that there is a prospect they will “frighten the life out of those institutional investors who ploughed £17million into the coffers little more than a month ago”, you would be forgiven for discounting the claim as a case of wishful thinking.
When it comes from the Daily Record and recent colleague of the club’s newly installed head of media you can be sure there is a little more to it than that.
You would think with all the positive feedback Green and Murray would have received form the SPL Commission they would be flush with joys. I sincerely hope, for their sake, that Phil’s Bridge over Troubled Waters ditty was more wishful thinking than another leak from the media team. That would be embarrassing. “Squelch.”
