    Yet another player we've signed who has zero chance of any game time, must be some amount of money wasted on a number of players wages, players that have contributed * all or just haven't been given a chance, something really needs to be done tae get this sorted, it's a shocking state of affairs.

    Definite Hun. Was sat next to him at Ibrox the other week and he cheered Jack’s goal like the rest of us.

    Don't see much wrong with what he said about the league nor liking the defoe signing tbh. If he was feeding that fat mess boyd stories that's a different matter though.



    This, I would dearly love to know the truth about some of the players signed this last few years. Although maybe its better not knowing.

    Yes. Not sure if it's because of injury or otherwise however Tierney is out there and Rodgers said he wasn't training at the beginning of this week. Everything suggests there's been a rift of some sort.

    I'm not sorry but I don't believe this actually happened




    ...there's no chance you willingly sat beside a black guy.

    The guy has had a few injuries and was always just going to be a squad player, good cover to have.

    If he doesn't play when Broony is injured and Ntcham is skelping every pass out of play....when will he?

    Think it’s pretty much passed him by now. He needed to be fit to take his opportunity when we were short in midfield. Christie done it instead with McGregor moving back.

    Shame. I like him.

    Is this alleged rift due to that interview? Surely there is more to it than that? Or has Rodgers lost faith in him?
    I liked that interview, thought it was exactly what the club needed.

    He was never going to play ahead of McGregor or Christie the way they were playing either tbf. Still good cover to have.

    He probably was but he was injured, Christie got his chance and the rest is history.

    So do I. I thought v Kilmarnock he was virtually the only guy on the park for us that was making himself available for passes and thundering into tackles.

    We subbed him off for fear of him getting sent off for complaining about thuggery from Kilmarnock then the * completely fell out of the team and we ended up getting beat.

    If it was one player in isolation that had came in, not really had a chance and been frozen out then it wouldn't be that much of a concern but there's a pattern emerging here.

    He was a mainstay for Kilmarnock from the day he signed til the end of the season. Steve Clarke is a demanding manager in terms of intensity so I can't see it being a diva strop at being asked to work. Bizarre.

    He’s been injured a * of a lot and others have taken their chances mate, nothing more than that for me.

    I don't think it's quite as simple. Best Celtic player on the park v Kilmarnock dropped the next 2 games. Best Celtic player on the park again v Salzburg dropped the next game.

    Period off injured, subbed on for the last 15 mins v Leipzig (admittedly pretty sloppy) then hasn't featured since despite: a huge run of games in December, injuries to Broony & Christie and Ntcham being woeful in most games. I think there's more to it than just being unfortunate with injury.

    I thought he was injured during December as well? Was injured when Christie first came into the squad and was at the beginning of the season as well?

    He might've had a few strains that I've missed but he was on the bench at various points throughout November and December without featuring.

    If true though, then a spate of injuries certainly raises other questions. He only missed 2 games for Kilmarnock after signing after a long lay-off and doesn't have a particularly bad injury record.

    Nobody could see the rise of Christie hence why he was signed.... Its was good on celtic manager at the time and recruitment to get Christie because they ovb seen something others couldn't
