Big Game Performer Scott Brown Never Changes

I remember talking about Scott Brown about twelve years ago and looking at his game. He was a midfielder who couldn’t really pass the ball, who couldn’t really run with the ball, wasn’t the master of a tackle nor was he going to score lots of goals. Now I think that review is somewhat over-exaggerated, […]

Celtic Can Replace Scott Brown The Player But They’ll Struggle To Replace Brown The Captain

News broke yesterday that Celtic captain Scott Brown would be leaving the Parkhead side in the summer, with the midfielder agreeing to become a player-coach at Aberdeen (Source BBC Sport). Can Celtic replace Scott Brown the footballer? Simple answer yes. That’s not to say that Brown wasn’t a fantastic player for The Hoops because he […]

Celtic’s Deep Rooted Problems – The Chief Executive, The Manager & The Captain

Celtic were unceremoniously dumped out of the Champions League qualifying stages after they lost 4-3 at home to Romanian champions CFR Cluj (BBC Match Report). For the second season running the Scottish Premiership champs have failed to reach Europe’s elite and money spinning group stages. In both seasons it’s been Celtic’s own fault. Last year […]

Rangers Emboy Gerrard’s Spirit To Beat Lacklustre Celtic

McGregor & Christie’s Celtic Performances Heap Pressure on Injured Duo

We’ve seen a real upturn in Celtic’s performances in the past month or so. The Hoops have won their last seven domestic fixtures and just secured a vital victory in their Europa League clash against RB Leipzig. Both Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor have helped their team’s cause during this return to form and they were […]

Celtic Aren’t In Crisis

  A few weeks ago, I remember coming out and saying that people were going overboard when discussing Rangers start to the season. People were jumping all over the fact that it was their worst start in the league since 1989. Sure enough fast forward to today and Rangers are now in second place in […]

Celtic’s Never Say Die Attitude Sinks Rangers Title Hopes

Celtic managed to overcome Rangers in their latest derby clash. It was a close one with the side from Govan twice taking the lead but the Scottish Premiership champions didn’t give up and in the end they had too much for their opponents. It’s how you react to set-backs that can define games, at times, […]

Scots Coming To The Fore At Celtic

One complaint I had of Celtic in recent years has been their lack of Scottish talent. They always had one or two starters and then maybe a few more within the squad. But under Brendan Rodgers the Scottish players are really making a big impression and are becoming integral to the team. Captain Scott Brown […]

Halliday’s Old Firm Tackle Has No Bearing On Scott Brown’s Appeal

People are still discussing Andy Halliday’s challenge on Patrick Roberts from last weekend’s Old Firm semi-final clash at Hampden. The tackle was late and reckless but the Rangers midfielder only received a booking. Even diehard Gers fans must have thought it merited a different colour of card. Celtic fans, players and some in the media […]

Saluting Celtic Captain Scott Brown As He Prepares For Game 400!

When you watched Celtic captain Scott Brown last season you got the feeling that the midfielder was winding down his career. The midfielder was sluggish, slow and struggling to get around the pitch during Ronny Deila’s last year in charge at Parkhead. But when new boss Brendan Rodgers walked through the doors at Celtic Park […]
