  1. Team VS Italy

    I get your point regarding those other nations but we have come up against them. It would take something special for us to reach a WC. EC is doable but we'd need a decent draw. I can't see us finishing better than 3rd next time. I just can't see us keeping enough clean sheets and/or scoring enough goals. The only hope is someone like Gauld really stepping up a level but I can't see it.
  2. Slovakia

    I think Slovakia are better than people think. Also, Germany are worse than people think.
  3. Team VS Italy

    With the players we have, I don't think any manager could get us ahead of England and Slovakia. We don't have one single player that other counties would want.
  4. Team VS Italy

    I'm not sure these are the best fixtures. Playing teams like France and Italy is tough enough but to do it at the end of the season, when we have nothing to play for (and they are preparing for the finals), without a number of key players could see us defeated heavily twice. I guess it will be worth it if 2 or 3 of the newer players do well and make themselves serious options for the qualifiers.
  5. Team VS Italy

    I expect you will be right with that selection. The team doesn't actually look too bad considering all the players that are unavailable. Only Paterson is inexperienced although Mulgrew at left-back always worries me. The biggest problem will come when we start to make mass changes as the options on the bench are quite a bit weaker in most areas. If that was the starting XI, the subs would be Fox, Hamilton, Berra, Greer, Kingsley, Bryson, Burke, McGinn, McKay, Phillips & McCormack. Hopefully we can keep it close in the first half and bring on the likes of Kingsley, Burke, McGinn and McKay in the second half. If it is a hammering, then it could do more harm to their development by bringing them on.
  6. England Australia

    To be fair, none of those three players would get near our squad now.
  7. Now he plays for St Johnstone he'll be able to pump her.
  8. His contract is up. No idea how much truth there is in the rumour but I'm not sure truth is a major requirement for this thread. It could be a decent signing but it isn't a position we need to focus on. I wouldn't be upset if it didn't happen.
  9. Tom Carroll (Spurs) to Celtic on a free.
  10. 1. Celtic (+ Scottish Cup) 2. Aberdeen 3. Motherwell 4. Hearts 5. Rangers (+ League Cup) 6. St Johnstone 7. Dundee 8. Killie 9. Ross County 10. Inverness 11. Partick (R) 12. Hamilton (R) ------------- 1. Hibs P. Falkirk
  11. Firstly, you drew with us. You went through on penalties (and I won't mention that part the freshly laid pitch had on that). Let's not make things up. We have appointed a manager with a lot more top level experience than Warburton has. Even with the signing of Barton, I'm not sure Rangers have a player in their squad that I'd want in the Celtic team. There is no doubt that we need to reduce the size of our squad but after seeing Liam Henderson and Anthony Stokes tear you apart at the weekend, I'm confident that our fringe players, never-mind our first team players, are better than your first team players. Even without much improvement under Rodgers, you would need another 5-10 decent signings to be able to compete. If we show any improvement, you'll need something special to get near us. I think Rangers should aim for a top 6 finish to start with.
  12. Squad Announced Tomorrow

    Updated squad - Goalkeepers Scott Fox (Ross County) Jack Hamilton (Heart of Midlothian) David Marshall (Cardiff City) Defenders Christophe Berra (Ipswich Town) Gordon Greer (Brighton and Hove Albion) Grant Hanley (Blackburn Rovers) Stephen Kingsley (Swansea City) Russell Martin (Norwich City) Charlie Mulgrew (Celtic) Callum Paterson (Heart of Midlothian) Andrew Robertson (Hull City - France only) Midfielders Ikechi Anya (Watford) Barry Bannan (Sheffield Wednesday - France only) Craig Bryson (Derby County) Oliver Burke (Nottinghaam Forest) Darren Fletcher (West Bromwich Albion) Shaun Maloney (Hull City - France only) James McArthur (Crystal Palace) John McGinn (Hibernian) Barrie McKay (Rangers) Matt Phillips (Queens Park Rangers) Matt Ritchie (Bournemouth) Robert Snodgrass (Hull City - France only) Forwards Steven Fletcher (Sunderland*) Ross McCormack (Fulham) Steven Naismith (Norwich City) * on loan at Olympique Marseille We are going to get smashed in both games. I'd really glad I'm not going to either of these matches.
  13. 1. Celtic 2. 4/10 3. Beating Motherwell 7-0. 4. Losing to Rangers and lack of progress in Europe. 5. Likable but glad he has moved on. 6. Griffiths and Tierney. 7. Boyata. Signed with high hopes but worse than Ambrose. 8. A centre-back and another forward. 9. 6IAR and Champions League football.
  14. Scotland Players In Action

    McGinn had a good game and Henderson was the difference when he came on. Wallace and McKay were ineffective.
  15. You could say something similar about almost any manager that has won anything.
