I'm approaching 70 and feared I'd never see us win another title so can you imagine how emotional I'm feeling.  WATP GSTQ NS

We’re going to get some huge offers for some of our players this summer but I honestly don’t see any of them wanting to leave. They love each other, love the fans, love the coaches, love the manager, love the stadium. And will be getting a stab at the CL next season. Can’t see anyone going unless we want them to

I look forward to the Kent song “Love will tear us apart” where everyone does Ian Curtis dancing, and Borna’s “Karma chameleon” where he dances dressed as Boy George.

See updates 😂😂😂

Doubt it  Been remarkably quiet this year. Funny that eh?!

Apparently the dildo doesn't stay quiet for long.

 

"celtic handing over the title on their own soil to Rangers would not be a bad thing.

It might actually bring home the seriousness of the situation facing the club right now.

It’s wrong for people to be talking about Rangers winning it at celtic Park. It was actually won months ago.

I’m going to get accused of being a broken down record and going on about the same stuff all of the time.

But, seriously, when will someone in power at Parkhead actually give the supporters a heads-up on what is going on.

How bad does it have to get? Rangers lifting the Premiership trophy in your own front garden? That serious?

It might all be over by Sunday and there will be a few supporters who would rather get it over with before the March 21 game. But, really and truly, it doesn’t matter.

Odsonne Edouard set for celtic transfer talks as John Kennedy drops hint over Leicester City target

celtic’s title has been lost since November and still no-one seems to have awoken from a slumber.

Neil Lennon leaving post managed to take some sting out of the immediate situation, but there’s still a vacuum of information.

Listen, I’m not stupid. I’m fully aware Dermot Desmond or Peter Lawwell can’t just invite fans into the stadium for a briefing and list out a load of names and targets to them that they are assessing.

But for goodness sake give your paying customers some sort of information. They want some guidance on what the plan is. If there’s a preferred timescale.

For example, when for a manager? Now? Or is it going to be end of this season? We all think it’s end of the term, but no-one has actually said so, to my knowledge.

You can’t seriously be telling me that John Kennedy is a contender for the job.

Filling the void after Lennon left makes sense in some respect to keep the players with someone they know, but it has to be stop-gap.

Not even victories in both of the remaining league games against Rangers and lifting the Scottish Cup is going to be enough to get Kennedy the post.

So why isn’t anyone at the club telling us that? Is it because he actually is a contender? Is he in the running?

What’s the situation with the director of football? Is there going to be one?

It is being taken as read that will be the case with new CEO Dominic McKay not having had hands-on experience of dealing with the football transfer market and even Brendan Rodgers was out a couple of weeks ago saying that the club need to go down this route.

But, again, no-one from inside celtic has actually informed the supporters if this is going to be the case.

Deals and negotiations have to be hush-hush. Moves can break down if word gets out regarding matters. I get that. But it’s not as if the fans are looking for candidates to be named.

They’d just like to know what the structure is going to be like because they are looking at a squad which is about to be taken apart and they can’t see how it is going to be reshaped in time for the start of the Champions League qualifiers.

They can’t see who is going to making the decisions, or picking the players. Is Nick Hammond still going to be running the recruitment side when Lawwell goes?

With Ten out of the way, celtic can go back to their market model. Odsonne Edouard being able to leave on a reduced fee sums up how it went off the rails.

It’s no scandal, it’s the chance that was taken. The club could have got £30 million, possibly even from Rodgers himself, last summer, but the supporters wouldn’t have accepted him being sold with Ten on the line.

Edouard’s price could almost be halved because he is into the last year of his contract, but celtic knew that would be the case a year ago. Ditto Kristoffer Ajer. Ditto Ryan Christie.

Fans want to know how these decisions are going to be made in the future and within what structure. Will McKay make them? A DoF? Desmond?

The hunt for a new manager is on at celtic (Image: SNS Group)

The fans are about to see their team’s reign as the champions ended for the first time in a decade and are still blind on the club’s future plans to wrestle it back.

It could be that those inside Parkhead are sitting back at purring at this type of talk. It could be that they have their new DoF and their new manager all signed and sealed.

The pair of them will be wheeled out to the delight of an excited crowd at the stadium and the expectation will surge through the punters that better times are ahead, just as happened on that sunny day when Rodgers arrived.

At that point, those at the helm can sit back and say it was all under control and they weren’t going to pander to demands for answers or dish out information at this delicate time."

Rangers have "been to hell and back over the past 10 years", says manager Steven Gerrard, with the club one point from the Scottish Premiership title.

Following a 3-0 win over St Mirren the Ibrox side will be crowned champions for the first time since 2011 if Celtic drop points at Dundee United on Sunday.

Rangers were in the bottom tier in 2012 after financial collapse, and returned to the top flight five years ago.

"I'm lost for words in how I describe my team," Gerrard told Rangers TV.

Rangers on brink of title - as it happened

"I don't think while I'm representing this club there will ever be a bigger three points.

"I've only been part of it for three [years], but I can certainly relate and I've got that feeling and that affection with the fans and I know what they have been through."

With the club's journey from the depths of Scottish football to top-flight glory on the brink of completion, thousands of Rangers fans broke Covid-19 lockdown rules by congregating outside the stadium prior to kick-off on Saturday in a pre-emptive title party.

The Scottish government condemned the scenes, but Gerrard sympathised with their excitement as a "monumental" achievement beckons.

After goals from Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos and Ianis Hagi extended Rangers' 100% home record in an unbeaten league campaign, Gerrard's players ran to the gates in a corner of the stadium to celebrate with supporters who remained outside.

"I've got to get my words right here - we are still involved in a pandemic," Gerrard added. "It's important fans try to stay humble and safe.

"That's the priority - people's safety. But at the same time, if you've got anything inside you or any part of your heart can understand what the fans have been through, you can totally understand what's gone on outside this stadium."

Former Liverpool and England skipper Gerrard praised his side's handling of the occasion as he edged to within touching distance of his first trophy as a manager.

He plans to watch Celtic's game at Dundee United with his players at Rangers' training base. If Celtic win, Rangers can then secure the title - depriving their Old Firm rivals of a record 10th successive championship - in the derby at Celtic Park on 21 March.

"It's been an emotional day, obviously arriving here and seeing the scenes," Gerrard added. "It was an incredible feeling.

"I always said the first one would be the hardest and we're obviously millimetres away from achieving that.

"For me the priority is to really let this sink in, get it officially done and realise the monumental achievement that it is. But that's got to make you hungry for more."

I would like thank Steven Gerrard, Gary McAllister and the backroom staff, and all the players for what they are about to achieve, either tomorrow or the coming weeks in bringing home our 55th league title even though the corrupt aresholes of scottish football have done everything they could to kill us off. I would also like to thank Dave King, who I wasn't quite sure about his motives at the time of his take over when we were in turmoil on a downward path, but he managed to put us on a good footing with a good board of Directors who love the club and backed our manager to get us to this point, so thank you all from a very very Happy 68 year old Diehard Bluenose. To the greatest fans in the World, God Bless you All. WATP

CHEERS LADS.
