Celtic Diary Tuesday June 21: It’s Only Words

The Celtic support, so far enjoying a summer of content, were thrown into collywobbles last night when journalist Fabrizio romani tweeted;

 

Fabrizio Romano
@FabrizioRomano
Leicester are in advanced talks to sign Odsonne Édouard from Celtic, now working to complete the deal – many clubs interested so #LCFC keen to secure it quickly. Not yet at signings stage but Leicester board now confident. Soumaré deal with Lille, done and confirmed. 
 Oh hang on, that was last summer.
 I meant this one…
Fabrizio Romano
@FabrizioRomano
Croatian national team right back Josip Juranovic is expected to leave Celtic FC this summer as many clubs are following him. #transfers Jurankvic is attracting interests from Premier League clubs too after great season for club and country.  
 Romano has simply said he expects Juranovic not to hang around because EPL sides are sniffing, and because he’s not your regular SMSM hack, people believe him.
 Juranovic is not the first Celt to be “linked ” with a move away, nor will he be the last.
 As an international player, he’s not due back for training for a couple of weeks yet, so it might be an idea to send someone to take his phone off him.
 However, it’s worth noting two things.
 Firstly, what the man himself said, back in March;

Celtic is a great club, I enjoy it from the first day, I go to training with a smile, I enjoy the club, the city, the fans.”

When asked about a move, he added: “Transfer? There are always some stories, but I leave that to my manager, I am at Celtic with all my heart.”

We rang him to ask for an update, but it seems someone has taken his phone off him.
 There will always be this sort of speculation from hacks, just because Romano has been right once or twice doesn;t mean he’s always right.
 Even we get some stuff right every now and again.
 Meanwhile, there’s a rumbling from a shareholder or two that suggests our board hasn;t quite thrown off the shackles of the Lawwell era……

Hi ⁦

⁩ – when I invested in Celtic in 1995 I was given the benefits outlined below. I have just been informed that the 10% discount on merchandise & food, which Fergus McCann told us was in perpetuity, has been terminated for the new season. This must be a mistake?

 Have any other shareholders noticed this, and if so, isn’t it time to get together to ask a few questions ?
And did anyone actually buy the blazer ?

 It may be perfectly legal, maybe under rules that allow changes after a certain length of time,
 It may be legal, but it certainly isn’t moral.
 Which isn’t like the Celtic board at all……. they are all honourable men.

 There’s never been a comfortable relationship between fans and board. That’s  the board have never given us any reason to feel comfortable with them or their actions.
 If they have removed this particular benefit, it’s a sign that they are still driven entirely by the pound, and yet another reason why we should be a little more prudent with our pounds,
 We could always get the Celtic Supporters Trust to get involved, and that would give them an opportunity to show they haven;t, in civil service parlance, gone native…….
 Elsewhere, and the club with no shame have announced another signing or two.
 They’re promising a better standard of meat pie next season with the extension of a deal for Alan MacGregor.
 Hang on, I’ll type that again.
 They’re promising a better standard of meat pie next season and they’ve extended the deal for Alan MacGregor.
 MacGregor follows Steven Davis in taking adavntage of the financial problems at Ibrox which mean they can’t afford a fee and a signing on bonus for a player, it can only be one or the other, and despite his legnedary (sic ) status over there, the support have noticed that the place is turning into a retirement home.
 Still, they’ll at least have food and drink , and not have to rely on the toilets….

RANGERS have announced that they have entered a new partnership with the catering company Levy UK.

 

(Sun )

 

Levy UK already cater for many famous stadia across the UK such as the OVO Hydro, the AVIVA Stadium, the Tottenham Hotspur StadiumStamford Bridge and Villa Park.  

 

 

The AVIVA stadium is in Dublin…..which isn’t in the UK

 

 

 

The club have mentioned that Levy UK will look to both enhance and modernise the food offering, with a focus on sustainable, local Scottish produce.

The new deal is ‘based on an innovative joint profit share arrangement’, which means the majority of profits will be retained by Rangers.

Speaking on the club’s official website, James Bisgrove, commercial and marketing director at Rangers has stated: “The Rangers board is excited by the potential of this new partnership with Levy and the innovation they will undoubtedly bring to the catering offering both on matchdays and non-match days at Ibrox Stadium.

“The commercial opportunity for the club is vast given the innovative profit share model we have agreed, with the majority of the profits being retained by the club.”   

 

 

Levy must have been delighted with that one.... 

 

 

The managing director of Levy UK, Jon Davies, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with Rangers FC and to provide catering services at one of the largest sporting stadiums in Scotland.

“Compass Scotland already has strong roots in Glasgow, and we’re confident we’ll wow supporters and other guests at Ibrox as we deliver our award-winning expertise from across Scotland the rest of the UK.

“With a focus on improving the guest experience, enhancing local, sustainable and plant-forward options, and creating local employment opportunities, we’re excited about this partnership and can’t wait to get started.”  

 

 

Plant-forward options ?  Local and sustainable ?

 

 

Good luck trying to grow anything around that place.

 

 

And good luck introducing them to healthy food.

 

 

 

 

Yesterday, we had this….

“Plant-forward options ?”
It’s just Levy’s way of saying to the gullibillies (a la Charles Green) “When your 10 year old company goes bust, we’ll inherit the ground and we’ll just grow potatoes on it!”

Imagine my surprise when in my local Celtic shop to pick up the training day tickets, I was served by Jota ! I asked if he was enjoying his new ‘summer’ job and we both laughed ( him in a Portuguese way)
He said it was long hours and low pay but he was able to take advantage of the reduced sandwiches in Asda and often joined in with the jaikies kickabout on the way home where he runs riot due to their high press. From this I can therefore exclusively reveal that he will be wearing the famous ‘hoops’ ( and pyjama top) once again soon.

Never having had the pleasure (sic) of meeting the individual I couldn’t possibly comment.
However I’m reliably informed, by sources similar to Ralph’s, that he has been known to gripe a lot.

Cart, I feel your disappointment and concur with your despair.
But we, The Glasgow Celtic have NINE-IN-A-ROW TWICE!
Their 9 palaces will one day crumble and rot, but our 9-i-a-r x 2 will live forever more.
Perhaps even longer!

“Bongo”, absolutely correct Pal and just watch what’s being schemed by the right-wing scum now. An extension of thatcher’s outright war on the workers of the UK will be central to their current plans. Only numbers backing the RMT will throw that scum off course. Anyway, “Bongo” has a place in my part-lost memory. I think it was from my time in Amsterdam when we smoked imported ‘tobacco’ from a scooped out potato via a wee tube of cardboard and drank Bongo (vodka and grapefruit?) form Friday evening till the 11th of never (can’t bring myself to use 12th!) I may be wrong………it wasn’t always the potato-pipe, we had many variations on a theme. Good luck, Bongo, great name.

Monti, after a fairly recent, mildly piss-taking comment of yours about Mike, I thought you knew he was okay? I mentioned that at the time. Also that ‘charlie’ had been asking for him too. Sans religious belief, we’d ALL have got on better, but………….
Anyway, I think it’s safe to say that eTims is rooting for him and hope he’s more than okay.
Just in case, arrange a check-point ‘charlie’ around Mike’s farm so that no ‘scallywag’, weegie can nick Mike’s sheep in the interim. HH
