Celtic Diary Wednesday April 25: They’ve All Gone Mad
Scott Brown says that “rangers ” aren’t even the second best team in Scotland.
Presumably the drink flowed at the player of the year do, and he’ll be reigned in to do his talking on the pitch, like he used to say we would.
Stilian Petrov appears to have gone ga ga as well..
“I think Celtic have got a chance to win the treble again next season, as well.
“If Rangers keep going the same way, they have a chance to do it over the next three years. We predicted it a year ago and they are going to do it strongly. I would say that it is sad in one way because, if we see that happen, Scottish football will lose its identity.
“The advertising in Scottish football is Celtic v Rangers. I come from a different country and every time the game came up, I’d watch it.
“The build-up, the excitement, the electricity. Everything. If that is lost, it would be very sad for Scottish football. I’m saying that as an outsider.”
Petrov thinks he knows whats missing at Ibrox… ( no, not Rangers , though that would be a fairly accurate answer )
Funnily enough, I played five-a-sides with Alex Rae the other week. And he still kicked the s** out of me! But that’s Alex.
Yes, that’s Alex, a dirty, talentless clogger who epitomises the club that no longer exists.
I went round the keeper and he literally cleaned me out. Then he goes: ‘There are no fouls in five-a-sides, Stan’. That’s what you expect, that aggression.”
Ah, the good old days. Thankfully, Motherwell and a few others are keeping the memory alive.
And if Petrov has gone ga ga , then Kris Commons is positively sprinting down the street in one of those backless gowns…
“I’ve heard Brendan Rodgers saying that he won’t go from Celtic to another club for the money. But I think what he means by that is he knows he’s good. Very good. But that never stops him improving.
“The point is money isn’t the issue. He’ll only want another job if it’s the right one for him. It would be hard for anyone to stay at Celtic if the likes of Arsenal came calling.
“But when you look at the candidates he’s up against — Carlo Ancelotti, Thomas Tuchel and Luis Enrique — it’s a formidable list. This is one of the reasons Rodgers has learned Spanish — to be able to tick more boxes than anyone else he’s up against.
Possibly, but its probably not his main reason. Spanish is not the first language in England as yet.
So, ahead of clinching the seventh title of ten, where are we up to ?
The manager is tipped to go to Arsenal, several key players are tipped to go south, and the team we face on Saturday have someone who takes doo lally to another level on their side…
RANGERS notes Hibernian’s decision to cut our supporters’ ticket allocation for the final match of the Scottish Premiership season at Easter Road on Sunday, May 13.
First and foremost Rangers hopes the safety of our fans, who will now be in only one section of the South Stand rather than filling it completely, will not be compromised by this decision, which beggars belief.
This is the least Rangers expects for supporters who have repeatedly proven themselves to be the most loyal in the country by selling out away ticketing allocations at opposition stadiums for years.
This was evident as we rose through the divisions when clubs the length and breadth of the country, including Hibernian, benefitted financially from the presence of our fans.
Rangers will of course bear in mind Hibernian’s decision when considering ticketing arrangements for future matches – both home and away – against this particular club.
For our final Ladbrokes Championship game at Glebe Park on Saturday, The Management Committee has confirmed a series of reduced admission prices for all supporters as follows:
– Adult: £10
– Concessions: £5
– Schoolchildren: Free
In addition The Club extends an invitation to our loyal season ticket holders (over 18s only) for a free drink in the City Club prior to the match (any time between 1pm and 2.50pm.)
