Celtic Diary Monday May 1: SFA To The Rescue. Again

Celtic scraped a win at Ibrox on Saturday, but there were concerns as no less than half a dozen players in the starting line up failed to add their name to the score sheet.

It finished 5-1 to the hoops, equaling the biggest ever win over the newcomers earlier in the season.

Whilst the club is new, however, they appear to have attracted the worst elements from the support of old Rangers, and there doesn’t seem to be a great difference in the mentality of those who ran either club.

The Celtic performance was polished, professional and pacey.

Five minutes into the game, Patrick Roberts was felled in the box as he was moving away from the goal by Murray Park starlet Myles Beerman, and while the referee hesitated, there was little doubt he’d have to award a penalty.

Scott Sinclair duly tucked away the spot kick causing howls of anguish amongst the home support, broken only by one supporter who chose to treat us to his simian impressions, highlighting the fact that the same flies have gathered around this altogether different pile of shite.

Unacceptable behaviour, although another of the flies who have landed on the spectacular pile of waste that is the new entity, claims to be able to explain and even excuse the supporters antics..

As long as that mentality pervades down Kinning Park way, things will never change.

Leigh Griffiths added a second, with a blistering finish to a run down the left hand side, and there were still less than twenty minutes on the clock.

It could have been worse for the Ibrox side, as chance after chance was missed, but their luck wasn’t going to hold out forever.

Early in the second half, Calum MacGregor swept a low shot beyond Wes Foderingham, and, not being black, the reaction from the Rangers fans was a little more subdued.

Deydrick Boyata added a fourth but by this time hardly any home fans could give a toss about showing their true colours, although one did toss a battery in the direction of Leigh Griffiths, presumably because he;d already thrown all his coins at Scott Brown.

Kenny Miller pulled one back for “rangers”, but Mikael Lustig redressed the situation when he waltzed past aging defender Clint hill -and a few others-to curl one past the despairing Foderingham, who by now must have felt like Custer at Little Big Horn with the amount of attacks he’d faced.

Other incidents of note included a pitch invasion, where a home fan cleverly eluded all the police and stewards by simply running towards the pitch and climbing over the barrier, no mean feat when you consider the massive deployment of security personnel in front of the main stand, as you can see here…

The abiding memory of the game, though, was this, from Jozo Simunovic, quite possibly the best tackle of all time

Image result for rangers 1 celtic 5 simunovic

It had everything.

Timing, strength and the result that Kenny Miller was launched into orbit.

Of course, Andy Walker felt it was worth a booking, and some balloon in the Sun claimed..

That assessment is indicative of the standard of Scottish football journalism, and needs no further comment.

 

Miller wept as he told the Record;

The Simunovic one in the first half? Honest to god.

“I was trying to get out the way of it. If I decided to ride it, there was the potential to be hurt. I appreciate he did play the ball, but what’s the term used now – ‘excessive force’? There was definitely excessive force in that.” 

He’s getting confused, bless him, in his dotage.

The correct term is “not enough force ”

 

The fallout from the game could go on for some time, and the Express reckons both clubs could be in bother..

Both Celtic and Rangers could be fined over the behaviour of their fans in Saturday’s Old Firm derby match. The hosts, in particular, could face severe sanctions after a supporter ran on the pitch to confront Scott Brown, while another was spotted on TV making racist gestures towards Scott Sinclair. Celtic may face punishment themselves after supporters let off flares in the away end.

We await with interest the response from the authorities, and also from the police.

Police have arrested a man following the Old Firm clash between Celtic and Rangers on Saturday.

A 28-year-old has been detained in connection with an alleged offence under the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Act, officers said. The man is expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

It follows an alleged incident of racial abuse where someone seemed to make a monkey gesture at Celtic player Scott Sinclair. (Daily Mail )

 

And the home support ? Well, one of them has realised something that we’ve been trying to tell him for years

Moving away from the game, we also await with interest the response from various places  to this revelation, posted on the SFA website at around four o’clock on Friday after noon…

SFA licence

Despite one or two issues over their eligibility under Financial Fair Play rules, the Ibrox club have passed the self certification part of the process, like they did in 2011.

It remains now to see how far the SFA and UEFA look into whtever the Ibrox club have handed in to them as their, er, financial statement..

Happily, if the SFA or UEFA don;t want to look too closely, it seems other Scottish clubs can…

You’ll note that the Ibrox club have been awarded “Silver ” status for their financial situation, which is defined thus..

Ooops…maybe they should have looked a little closer, as nearly all of their “audited reports 2 contain disclaimers, usually to the effect that they’ll be borrowing money off whoever is daft enough to lend it to them, just to see them through till payday, you understand..

I’m sure our Woodwards and Bernsteins in the media will be all over this.

It would be embarrassing if any English based hacks beat them to any story around potential wrongdoing…

It’s going to be an interesting summer..

 

Back at the ranch, and it was the Player of the Year dance last night…

Scott Sinclair was Player of the Year, Players Player of the Year and all round good guy of the year.

Keiran Tierney was the young Player of the Year, and Jack Aitchison Academy Player of the Year.

 

No one got both scores correct in the Demolition Derby forecast, though you have to hand it to a Mr J. Barton of Lancashire for his stunning prediction of the result in the League game..

Aye! A great day when an old nag can beat the young yins. But, I guess some old nags had anything but a great day on Saturday. I can still hear one greetin’ about nearly being crippled by a young fella on the slide. Just like a Pearl and Dean – ah, those were the days my friend in the back row with the lights down low and the only worry the beam of the usherette’s torch. I could have coped with hundreds of beams on Saturday simply because they would have all been Celtic ones as the other lot had thrown all their batteries at wee Griff – and missed, just like their useless strikers. They must practice up against Old Derry’s Walls thinking the SFA will make the goals that wide for them. Wouldn’t put it past them considering those unbelievable documents in the Diary. Anyway, I’m off to enjoy a whole bale a’ hay.

Wonderful weekend, great to be home for the massacre at ibrokes.
The stewarding well lack of it and police, should be a real concern for Celtic.
Peter has to raise this with the sfa,it’s a problem which will have to be addressed before someone is attacked by the loonies of the klan,next season.
If the sfa grant the licence to Sevco,then all spfl clubs should resign. It’s as simple as that. They have no audited accounts,no credit line from a bank,and no way are they compliant to the requirements of UEFA financial licence.
If this happens the clubs should break away, invite all the full time clubs or those that want to be full time to form a league of their own. There can be no other way out for sevco and their pals in the sfa.
Saturday I thought the team was immense with a little more composure it could and should have been double figures.
Jozo what a tackle,if your defenders can’t make those tackles the game is fucked.
Timing, power, skill, it had it all. Boyata pure class,strolled the match,knocked the ball away so many times I lost count. Points for me I don’t think anybody deserved less than a 8 motm Brendan

What a weekend, should have been 10-1, feel sorry for Pedro he will get pelters. The zombies do not criticise their masters they know their place, that is why they have to shout ‘wee are the peepul’ makes serfs feel better as they acknowledge their Queen and betters.
The SFA are heading for a fall with their claims regarding sevco, just look at what’s happening in England regarding Newcastle and HMRC. At the weekend the Sunday Times stated that if their was proof that their had been undercover tax dodges, then their promotion should be looked at with a deduction of points from NCL K this being only fair to clubs like Huddersfield who had not followed that course of action had been penalised, bears no resemblance to the Scottish media Hun lovers.

If only we could have got a result like that against. Rangers some time but not to be. Anyway 5 victories and a draw against the best squad in the league makes me think we might get a trophy next season or at least to a cup final or runners up spot, still Brendan does his best with what he’s got I suppose.
Last season some of the panic merchants had Brown “done” and wanted him out. He didn’t whine but this season he oozes class, shows what can be achieved if you don’t play with an injury, the sacrifice that guy makes for Celtic. Do we really appreciate simply how good a player he is. I am not just talking about his fervour or his engine but his reading of the game his interceptions his short passing as well as influence, like a top actor he grabs the screen, everybody is drawn to watching him. Personally I don’t think he should have been available for Sunday his scissors on Boyce from behind was a red card all day and I am glad he will get a couple of games off to lead us to the treble. Forget Halliday different club, different pitch, different competition, different result, different referee,nothing to do with the Ross County game although their players were appalling, hope they go down, it’s all they deserve.
I feel better after all that.

No money,
no players,
no stewards,
no honesty,
no morals,
no realism,
no patience,
no hope.
Just a sense of indignation, that their 17th century mind set think’s that they are entitled to be at the top. Someone said to me that they should be liquidated again and to start from the beginning again, but only a year after year timescale of realism would possibly teach them to be entitled like us, to nothing, that success has to be earned and worked for. Live within your means, be humble and accept your circumstances, only then can you move forward.

Saturday was rather special, highlighting everything Celtic are and they are not.

Why they want to be seen as the same club is mystifing but chacun a son gout.

On obtaining a UEFA licence who is applying and what accounts are being used is unknown but the most important question is whose responsibility is it to check whatever has been presented?

Is it the SFA or is the buck being passed to UEFA? For a bit more info on which rules seem to apply for the award of a National Club licence and for a UEFA licence read comment

There is six levels, brass is the cheating level and yes we sincerely hope that the S.C. uphold the COS.
All this could/ should have been avoided if there was complete honesty and transparency at the SFA SPFL. Like was promised, instead secrets and lies, why did they not come out and show proof of wrong doing or proof of innocence (haha). That at least would have been respected.
Respect to you bhoys and let’s hope that things pan out the way that you want, you have travelled a long road with this, we sincerely hope that your efforts were not in vain.

As perfect a performance as one could wish to see – notwithstanding the two or three missed sitters. All the players were immense – every time we attacked we looked like scoring, in sharp contrast to many times in the past when we never remotely looked like getting a goal. Playing with pace and movement and a solid defence that won’t be knocked off the ball makes it difficult for any team let alone Sevco to keep up. Long may it continue.

Celtic unbeaten this season, so far, factor in the C.L. qualifiers and then the C.L. itself. Remember that nearly all our first team squad are Internationalist’s, playing surely double the amount of games that other Scottish fitba. players play. That is an awful lot of games, then look at the performances of the players and their fitness, UN BELIEVE ABLE.
We are returning to the level that we played at prior to the winter break. COQ. Confidence is key.

I think there is a possibility that we could get Paddy. Look at his body language in the game at the weekend. He is really into the club and what it stands for.
If he goes back to MC he will play in their development team or sit on the bench for most of the time, until he asks to leave for a mediocre EPL team. During this time he will not receive the coaching he is getting now, nor will he experience European football, nor the crowd atmosphere of Celtic park.
If the money is right, I think we shall get him, provided he is not cheesed off with the SPL.

The main area of improvement in the current team is the need for a lock picker. Paddy is a lock picker….his desparate side pass to MCG for the third goal shows that.

I hope you are right my friend. I just think he will want a crack at the EPL and to prove what he can do on a bigger platform than the SPL. What he won’t get though is days like Saturday with that special atmosphere, he won’t get anywhere near that in the morgues of England! Like I said though, good luck to him if he does leave us, I truly hope he becomes world class or just about near it and I for one will follow his career should he leave.

So, Rob O’Keeffe, because JJ, as I pointed out in my initial crit, has some excellent past form, you feel you have the right to go stirring the shit with him, just so you can stand back and watch the sparks fly?

As for your claims that I’m no ‘Celtic poster’, do you have any proof of this?

And, when you say that I ‘came on this site whining and throwing unpaid for toys out the bogey’, do you mean THIS site, ETims, or do you mean ‘His’ site, JJ’s?

Either way, please provide evidential examples to support your claims, whether on here or there.

Also, you do understand the basic premise of the internet, right, that’s it’s a free information sharing service designed to broaden the greater collective knowledge of humanity?

Do you get the basic underlying principle of this, that all of this information is FREE AT THE POINT OF CONTACT, unless the provider tries to get his readers to pay for it, (which has so farfailed even Murdoch’s titles?)

Does this then make you, too, a ‘feeeloader’, either on this site or elsewhere?

Do you pay Ralph & the boys for every single thing you read on here, or watch elsewhere on the internet, whether the provider wants your money or not?

Besides, what business is it of yours if I pay or don’t pay someone that they’re giving away for free or not?

Are you like the Treasurer for the JJ page or what?

Last point:

If I am, as you state, the ‘K.Miller tribute act’ then you must be the Lee Wallace …

The reasons for this behaviour are deep rooted in Scottish Society but thst does make them anymore acceptable. If left unchecked it is only a matter of time before serious harm results. It is time for all teasonable people to speak out against it, particularly those that follow the Sevco club. There needs to be strong statements from Sevco condemning the actions of some of their fanbase. The SFA also has to comment on the inadequate stewarding that permitted a fan to enter the field of play. If Sevco enter Europe they will be crucified for such incidents by UEFA, thus it is in their interests to check this now!

I do not know how to eliminate the singing and chanting thst is sectarian, but ignoring it is not the way forward. If nothing is done about this, the other clubs should return a vote of no confidence in the senior admin of the SFA, forcing resignations.

Frankly, some of the scenes from Ibrox were so full of hate that it bordered on insanity!

It was a sporting event not a religious war!

Rebus, to eliminate the hateful songs of bloodlust and murder from the terraces is simple, the ref stops the game, the cops pull 2 or 3 of the ‘choir’ from the stands and arrest them and the game continues.

Should the songs start again, repeat the process.

If they blindly continue with their Repetitive Compulsive hatred after 2 games, a fine in the region of 100 grand, and rising.
2nd offence, points deduction, 3rd offence, expulsion from the league.

Et voila, nae mair hate filled chanting from the not so great undead at Ibrox.

Of course, this would require the cooperation of the Protestant SFA in punishing their own nipple-baring ‘brothers’ but I’m sure even they understand the imperatives of a clean game for Scotland …. (Cough cough)

Davie,

There may be the odd riot as we proceed with your idea, but why not…..!

Are you the Davie Wilson that played on the left wing for Rangers and Scotland? You had a cracking shot!

Just joking!

Why would there be any need for a riot, Rebus, when all we’re doing is implementing UEFA’s own ‘Show Racism The Red Card’ initiative?

Who in football could possibly complain about such swift and redemptive actions?

And, no, I’m not THAT Davie Wilson, :), though I did used to do a bit for the left wing, until I realised they were all working for the same party, ie, The Filling Their Own Pockets Party, and the stuff I’ve found out since embarking on my own research would make your hair stand on end.

Incredible what you can discover when you realise the media is just the front for the greater lie.

Like the SFA would ever Allow that to Happen.Just not realistic.It does make common sense,But thats were the buck wouls stop on that Idea,I think.Police Scotland arresting there own Brothers and Sisters??There is a lot more goes on behind the scenes than we could or would ever comprehend.Celtic and Sevco to a lesser extent are there main Source of Income.Lok what went on with Neil Lennon(letter bombs)Anyone stands against RainJurZzz there lifes are Literally Threatened.The proofs in the pudding.The worst thing was allowing Sevco 5088 To exist at all.When they were Liquidated.That shouldve been the End if It.Now lok at whats going on.Invading the pitch throwing missiles racist slurs on our player.Can anyone see anything getting any better.Only solution is Celtic joining another League.Scottish Football is holding Us Back.

Davie Wilson,
” Protestant SFA “? What does that mean?
I’m a Catholic but not got one single issue with someone who is a ‘Protestant’!

Protestants played their part in Irish Nationalism & Republicanism.

Let’s not have any anti-protestant shite on here Davie!

From a lifetime’s experience I can only say that the Orange Order would have a far greater influence over a Protestant organisation than that of any other faith, as I’m sure most folk here, or anywhere else, would agree, Weered.

Let’s face facts, the only people that gives a crap about religious divides is the poor. These over-paid arseholes in the SFA couldn’t give a Shit about either religion or Irish nationalism, all they give a Shit about is money. They don’t believe a fair and just league with Celtic winning every year by April can be exported. What can be? Well this can http://m.bild.de/sport/fussball/fussball/internationale-fussballshow-51540452.bildMobile.html Bild is the top selling tabloid in Germany. I have family who watch football in Virginia and the only Scottish games that are screened are the Celtic vs the plucky newcomers. They don’t watch it because it’s a close contest, they don’t watch it too see Celtic outclass their opponents, they watch it because it’s bloody crazy. So forget religion it’s like this because it sells.

Where did I say I’m ‘Anti Protestant’, Monti?

I grew up surrounded by friends and family who were and are Protestant, my wife was born Protestant and I have no issue with any person of any religion whatsoever even though I’m not religious, although deeply spiritual, myself.

I’m merely pointing out the facts as they are, that the SFA has, like the UK itself, always been run by men who are predominantly of the Protestant faith.
(For those who claim Tony Blair was a Catholic, please note that he had to wait until leaving Downing St before converting to Catholicism, as some ancient law FORBIDS a Catholic PM in the UK,mand Theresa May, though perhaps schooled by Cathoilcs, was born and remains a Protestant.)

So, Monti, please do point out any offensive ‘Anti Protestant shite’ in my message, as you see it.

Also, could you explain what ‘Tal’ stands for while you’re about it?

No, Monti, you meant to write what you wrote, which was ‘Tal’, an acronym of the Irish phrase that even the Protestants on here all know well.

I then gave you the get-out by indicating that I knew damn fine what you meant by then writing ‘Ta’ (and a smiley) at the end of my own message,,and seeing if you’d take the bait.
Which you did.

Reply to  Weered

No, Monti, it’s you that’s stuck, son.

You extrapolated some undisclosed bias on my part even though I was only stating a fact, for the SFA is now and has always been led, and largely staffed, by Protestants.

You’re still trying to do this, by mocking my lifelong friendships with people of the Protestant faith, which is more of an insult to your own intelligence than mine, tbh.

Your bitterness and shallow ego prevents you from admitting this but it’s clear to other readers what your motives are, as it’s equally clear that you did not intend to write ‘TA’ when you wrote Tal’, that this was your misguided intention, to use a Ra phrase.

You know you’ve fucked up here but, again, your own bloated ego and self importance is preventing you from accepting it.

So don’t dare cast aspersions on my beliefs, my friendships or my lifelong connections when you know absolutely nothing about either me or them, even though your view through the bottom of that bottle seems to tell you otherwise.

Are we now not allowed to state a simple fact even though we all know it to be the truth?

I’ll write it again:

The SFA is a Protestant organisation led by men who have, for as long as we have known, did all they could to hide the past and present sins of both clubs playing out of the notoriously Protestant stronghold of Ibrox Park.

Whether there’s a connection between their Protestantism and the Orange Order could, theoretically, be open to debate, but I’m sure that anyone with any knowledge of the west of Scotland and its politics already understands the point.

It makes no difference to me that they’re Protestants, but it does make a huge difference in how all this Oldco/Newco business has played out, don’t you agree?

I think to say the SFA are protestant is a bit, well, silly.

No, Monti, I ‘insinuated’ nothing, I stated a fact, you extrapolated the negative from that fact.

Be ause it IS a fact that the SFA is a Protetstant organisation.

Are you denying that fact?

You still haven’t answered my initial question as to where the negativity in my initial statement lies.

As for you insinuating that I’m ‘bitter’ because I’m a Sevco fan, not only are you clutching at straws but answer me this:

Why do YOU think I would come on a Celtic page, professing my lifelong love of Celtic when I’m actually a Rangers supporter?

Only a bitter, foul minded prick like yourself could come up with a twisted logic like that.

So, do me a favour, point out to me the ‘insinuation’ in my first message.

And stop telling lies; you and I and the wee man know that you wrote ‘Tal’, as everybody on here knows you’ve never said thanks in your life, so get a grip of yourself and accept you screwed up.

Egos like yours need a good pissing over like the one I’ve just given you.

You’re a transparent tube, Monti, a sad wee man, trying to twist obvious facts into somerhing more sinister and I’m not gonna waste any more time on you because you were trying to pick a drunken fight over something that wasn’t there.

Just accept your loudmouthed mistake, accept it and move it on.

Either show how stating a fact can somehow be argued against as an ‘insinuation’, or accept your trigger fingered reaction as the drunken mistake it was and move on.

If that big fat heided ego of yours will let ye.

I know I have.
