Cock of Gibraltar 

I wrote that headline in jest earlier today. I didn’t think I’d be using it in my post match blog.

I’m not going to round on one player though. He doesn’t pick himself – that’s the manager’s job.

The question is why has Efe Ambrose survived three Celtic managers? Why not play O’Connell or McCart tonight?

Better still, sign a defender for the short term whilst we await our injured defenders coming back. No, lets play Efe because it worked so well for Neil and Ronny.

Well Brendan, you’ve made your first mistake. Putting your faith in a calamity. 

We knew the conditions and we knew our opponents beat a better side in the previous round. We also knew about Efe’s ability to fuck things up, but you ignored all of it anyway.

Let’s just be clear on one thing though: Celtic were dire tonight. The surface contributed to that but should still have done much better.

A forgettable start for Brendan, but I’m hopeful we’ll plough through this mob on grass in Glasgow. A sore one nonetheless which will need to be exorcised immediately. 

Hail! Hail!

  2. I’ve backed brown all his Celtic career, but tonight is the end. Bitton as well. Take ANY offer we get.
    Terminate ambrose contract in the dressing room. Don’t even allow him on the plane. Tell Forrest his contract offer has been withdrawn.
    The pitch was a disgrace, but that why we are paying a manger £2m. To work that out and find a strategy. Pump long balls up to dembele and ciftci. Forget pretty football on that surface.
    We had chances, but they had more. We were as lucky at 1-0 as they were to keep in a clean sheet.

  3. Why do we spend money on a youth system?
    Why do we pay yourh player wages, yourh coach wages, probably subscriptions to youth leagues, youth scouting networks?
    These boys have no chance of ever playin for Celtic. All we do is produce youngsters for the rest of the league, whilst we waste money on diddies like Ambrose. Do we not have any good defenders, midfielders, wingers or strikers in the youth set up? If not then somethings badly wron at the club. I’d have rather lost 1-0 and played a kid at centre half than that fuquin liabilfy ambrose. He should have been replaced at half time, if not earlier. It was evident he was going to cost us. I actually pleaded for a red card for him in the second half.
    Yet again, no Scott Allan.
    Yet again, the top striker at the club is moved to accommodate so own else, who offered very little (although I blame the 9 in front of him and the manager for that). We want two up top, not one, not a one pretending to be a three. TWO. Griffiths is a central striker, not a utility player as seems to be every managers preference. I just hope Rodgers doesn’t fail because of his reluctance to use Griffiths properly, as Ronny tried.
