    To be fair, the atmosphere around Celtic was that foul at our lowest ebb that a COVID season was not off the cards. If we kept up that * form we'd be sitting trophyless and probably without a Scottish Cup final to look forward to. So fair play Brendan - I had my own doubts and he proved me wrong

    Last night (on that pitch, may i add), with at least 3 goals reminiscent of how we played under Ange, and a full stand singing his name, really makes me wonder how far he can take us if he's backed properly.

    We have got a lot more money and no excuses. Get money spent and the type of players in that he wants. And don't take our foot off the huns neck this time.

    I’ve just realised people have been taking ‘snakey *’ as an insult?

    I’ve been meaning it as a term of endearment this whole time.

    Honestly with how strong we've finished this season, with the financial investment to come and everyone backing BR I think we'll go on to have an incredible season next year. 100+ points

    There won't be financial investment. Not unless the fans refuse to renew ST-s and send the board into panic.

    Needs backed and we stamp on their * zombie necks, if the board get this right which the sceptical person in me says they won’t, we could be on for another 9 in a row if they actually invest into the playing squad.

    I do think Brendan will be backed somewhat but we know the board will choose to keep that amount as low as they can, just enough to keep Brendan and the fans satisfied is the sweet spot they will look for.
    They probably give him £40 million which is still quite little considering the amount of money we have in the bank and how much we expect to come in. And if we sell MOR, get the Frimpong money and sell off a few others the net spend will probably be near 0. Yet the board will make sure they come out and tell us that this is the record budget in terms of spend.

    Brendan Rodgers says it's 'satisfying' proving his Celtic doubters wrong - admitting 'I'm not made of wood.'

    The Irishman has had his skeptics since his return to the club last summer and some of their early form did little to win over the fans who hadn't forgiven him for how he left in 2019. But the bridge has been well and truly mended by a Premiership title win at Kilmarnock on Wednesday that had fans singing his name again

    It's been a season of challenges but the Hoops will lift the trophy on Sunday and have already accrued the most points they have over a season since Rodgers' first, the Invincible Treble campaign. Rodgers admits he's heard the critics loud and clear - and it's been satisfying to prove them wrong


    He said" "I'm not made of wood. We all have feelings. We're all built in different ways, I feel I can deal with pressure and those situations. But it still doesn't make you immune to everything. What experience has given me is not to become too emotional with words.

    I can trace back to August, when the headlines were that I was under massive pressure. That was in August and it's continued right the way through. I had to show mental strength like the team has had to do and eventually, the work that we did came through in the end. It's been a challenging season in ways that I didn't think it was going to be.

    "A little bit awkward and a little bit of feeling (from the fans) when I came back, which I totally get. It's satisfying, is what you would say. I'm satisfied in the work we've been able to do. It's surprising a little that so many people didn't see what was happening around the team, knowing how my teams operate and how they play, how they attack. It's not full-out attack.


    I tend to think of my teams like a top boxer. A top boxer isn't throwing punches all the time, he needs to put his guard up now and again. My teams are reflective of that. They attack, they're aggressive, they score goals, and they defend well



    Clearly there was a reason and a purpose as to why it wasn't functioning quite the same. It certainly wasn't that I had lost the hunger, or that I was going through the motions, or lost the stomach for the fight. So it's been very satisfying."
