Would it kill them to talk the game up just even a wee bit every now and then. FFS.

Screams that Parks can't handle Celtic dominating his beloved Rangers*

How can choosing to play for a club in the CL be lacking ambition?

A striker who apparently average less then a goal a season at senior level.

TBF he obviously pushed himself by playing at a far higher level than he should have,

He continues to push himself with a job at a level far higher than he deserves

Scotland almost certainly need to win their three remaining Group F games. If they do so, they will move to 20 points, a tally that could be surpassed by England and Slovakia, who meet at Wembley on Monday, and matched by Slovenia, who host Lithuania the same night.

Somebody at the BBC has got their sums wrong. Scotland would need to beat Slovenia (also on 11 points with 3 to play) to finish on 20 points, making it impossible for both teams to finish on that.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that the Scottish champions were ready to offer five times their record transfer fee paid in a bid to land on-loan Patrick Roberts on a permanent transfer but that Manchester City would not even entertain a bid of £30m. (The Scotsman)

A quick click on the link shows that Rodgers said nothing of the sort. You'd expect this pish from the daily record.

I saw the 30M headline and assumed it was nonsense given that Rodgers previously said Celtic bid 8M for him.  Still would be a club record but not 5 times the record

He doesn't say £30m.

He makes two statements

'we were willing to break our transfer record'

'we could have offered £30m and they still would have said no'

That is not saying they were willing to spend £30m.

It's also bullshit - there is not a hope Man City would have turned down £30million for Roberts, regardless of the mutterings from the great sage of Scottish football who is here to teach us all the error of our ways and how the game should be played.

Dundee United should of course be the headline club for a few reasons so strange that the BBC choose to give prominence to Linfield. It's difficult to think why...

Rangers and Celtic fans have their say over St. Johnstone star Michael O'Halloran.

Jesus Christ. Mind you, they will still complain of media bias when they are talking about another teams player who's fans don't get offered to have a say.

Good grief. That is one of the most surreal and saddest things I've ever seen. It's really a microcosm of the Scottish media's view of Scottish football. There really is no hope.

“Tommy is a gentleman and knows his football inside out. I would love Brendan Rodgers to recruit him as I believe he could work wonders, especially with our defence.”

Delusional :lol:
