Celtic Diary Friday April 28: Brown Rested for Ibrox

Well, he’s had a busy week, and Brendan Rodgers might be thinking that he should save his inspirational captain for the games where the unbeaten season might be under threat.

Browns eventful few days culminated in the downgrading of his red card earned for a foul on Ross County’s Liam Boyce, which was deemed a yellow, and now he’ll have to wait for his suspension. However, he’ll be available for tomorrows match at Ibrox, but to further emphasise the chasm between the two glasgow sides, he’ll be rested, and Rodgers will call on another international midfielder to fill in.

Or not.

But it would be funny if he did…

And it sounds like Rodgers could do with a chuckle, its alright offering constructive criticism, but in a week where Celtic have secured two trophies and advanced to a cup final, maybe he should have cut the under 17s some slack..

The under-17s final was a poor game. In terms of Scottish football the standard was awful. “There were some good players in both teams and the kids won, which was great, and there was two or three moments of quality. But the overall level of quality wasn’t good. I have seen some good kids up here and it’s a good level. But they would have to play better football than that.

Miserable sod. Give them the trophy back then.

He was a little more complimentary about the under 20s..

“The under-20s the other night was a good game. They showed good tactical awareness and played at a good level, in terms of speed, organisation with their pressing, they got the ball back quickly and were fast getting forward. It was good. The progress will come with the 17s but we need to influence it even further down to eventually produce it at the top level. There’s a big difference if you want to produce players for Scotland that allows the national team to do well. “I’m new here but it’s my job to help. We have brilliant coaches here at youth level with Chris [McCart] overseeing it, Tam McIntyre and Michael [O’Halloran] with the 17s, their assistants, they have great enthusiasm and energy. But we’re trying to take a different path.”

Ah, he’s just burbling again. He does that from time to time, but as football is a results business, and he’s getting the results, he could tell us that “rangers ” are the same club, the SFA are doing a fine job and that he’s going to bring back Dorus De Vries as first choice keeper and we’d just nod and agree.

Well, maybe not the latter.

Looking ahead to tomorrows game, Rodgers tried to summon up some enthusiasm to sell the fixture, but was clearly struggling..

“When I have watched the games that have been [under Caixinha], they haven’t really been a high-pressing team. If you think of the Aberdeen game [Rangers won 3-0 at Pittodrie three weeks ago], they sat in [inviting pressure], and only in certain situations they would come and press it. If they feel the need to press and disrupt our organisation, it can also be dangerous because behind that then leaves a big space and we have speed to break into it. “I am sure their supporters will demand that they be better, they will want to be better, but we want to be better. We want to improve, to be better than what we were in our performance level but they are always great games.”

Their supporters aren’t that bothered about their team doing any better. They’re currently expressing their displeasure at the result of the SFA meeting that allowed Scott Brown to get a yellow instead of a red..

Apparently, part of that is that Peter Lawwell, Opus Dei and Jesus Christ himself now control Scottish football, and they have proof!

Not only that, FIFA have confirmed that Celtic don;t have to release Patrick Roberts !

Oh wait, they mean for the U20 world Cup, but its another sign we have friends in high places..

This all combines to instill a little venom amongst supporters of Scotlands newest club, and over on one of their more legible forums, the rage is not difficult to find..

Finally we need our club that to attack the SFA where our own interests are concerned. Where a ban is placed on a player we should be taking it to court if necessary, if only to demonstrate the inconsistency and favouritism that seems to exist for a certain club. We need to make more of this out with our borders to ensure the SFA are seen as a laughing stock for the double standards the obviously hold and how their interests in one team are doing nothing to promote the national game, progression of the national side or showing the game as a whole in an attractive light.

It goes on in pretty much the same vein, and no one seems to offer a sensible solution, until we get to the real idiots..
One guy not only hit the nail on the head, he also showed us what one of their acronyms really means..
Here we see the next stage of the grief process.
We’ve had denial, we’ve had blame, and now we have self pity. That feeling that maybe one could have done a little more to either make the last few days of a loved one more comfortable, or perhaps even delayed the inevitable end.
I contacted this guy to offer my sympathies, but it was too late.

In fact, it looks like they’re all at this stage, including their manager..

“You are seeing someone who is clear, frontal and open but everyone has his own limit. When I feel I am not being respected I’m not going to respect. I’m polite, I’m educated but I’m a f***ing tough guy.”

 “What I said is that when I’m defending my club – the way I’m defending Rangers now – they are the best club in the world. My board and my management are the best in the world so that also means that my players and my squad are the best in the world.

“I have explained this since the very beginning. They give the best in the world and they give the best in Scotland. It’s clear now?

Meanwhile, over in Portugal, Lisbon to be exact, John Clark unveiled a plaque at the Estadio Nacional..

To go with the new strips, the club are hot on the heels of some new players.
We talked on last nights podcast about Bojan Krkic, who has improved his game for Mainz now that hos favoured move to Celtic is back on the cards.
Next in line for a few years in Glasgow could be  FC Utrecht right-back Giovanni Troupee. It probably won’t happen, as its been reported in the mainstream media, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day , so it’s possible.

  • Club FC Utrecht
  • Age 19 years
  • Height 180 cm
  • Weight 71 kg
  • Goals / Assists 3/2
  • Yellow / Red card 5/0 

The question is whether Giovanni Troupée next season is still on display at FC Utrecht. The right back is enjoying the interest of clubs from England and Germany.

From the Premier League take Bournemouth and Middlesbrough operations of Troupée closely watched and Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt sends weekly scout to the Netherlands, reports Eleven Football . Additionally hopes the Scottish champions Celtic on the arrival of the youth international, who this season are breakthrough experiences at Utrecht.

Well, if we sign one of them they can keep the other.
Personally, I’d keep an eye on this story…

As reported by The Times, Manchester City could be set to lose one of their brightest prospects with contract talks stalling between the club and Tosin Adarabioyo.

What’s the story?

The young defender’s contract is up at the end of the season and with a fresh agreement having not been reached, City are facing losing him for just compensation and development costs.

That’s what The Times say anyway, and they reckon there’s no breakthrough in sight on a new deal despite the club rating him highly.

 

The situation is said to have alerted the likes of Celtic, Everton, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig.

Is he the next young star ready to make a splash at the Hoops?  

Er, who is he ?

Abdul-Nasir Oluwatosin “Tosin” Adarabioyo (born 24 September 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Premier League club Manchester City

At fifty pence a letter on the back of replica shirts, it won’t take long before he pays for himself.

Adarabioyo joined the youth system at Manchester City aged five.[4] He made his U18 debut for the club aged 14 and was captaining the U18s aged 16.[4][5] On 21 February 2016, Adarabioyo made his first-team debut in an FA Cup match against Chelsea.[6] He made his Champions League debut on 24 August 2016, as a substitute in a 1–0 win over Steaua București, in a Champions League play-off round match.[7]

Rob I totally agree with BR the under-17s was hellish nothing but blooter football and the under-20s not much better,what the fcuk are the coaches doing,there was hardly one redeeming feature from either game,they just haven,t improved at all,if you do not have the basics of control/pass/move what is the point.

your strength eroding losing might,
lambing by day and by night.

Broken bones, arthritis pain,
caused by ferming’s wind and rain,

crops a growing, tall and strong,

Very interesting! The stats confirm my impressions of McG. He is one player who has benefited from playing different positions. Many do not. I think that Roberts has similarly benefited from the different roles that BR has asked of him which is why I hope we retain him. I see him ultimately occupying a more central role as his career progresses.

Keep up the good work,

Even better, leave him out then bring him on to take a late penalty (when the orcs realise they’re about to lose again and start kicking everything) then sub him straight back off again for one of the U17 side.

Talk to the coaches then and explain but don’t lower the morale of the young Bhoys by demeaning their “work” especially in public.He doesn’t do it with some of the duds in the first team squad.Enjoy the game today.Yours in Celtic.

Decent post PB. Spot on about the square and backward passing. Not only is it infuriating to watch, with certain players it verges on kamikaze. They WILL get caught if they keep that shit up. The times I’ve screamed “now run into space”. Fortunately, Callum McGregor is never included here. He seldom gives the ball away cheaply, always looks to help his team by being available and, in my view seriously under-rated, extremely versatile player.
