    This appointment is totally taken the * now from the SFA and the board at least should come out with at least a statement they are not happy with this appointment especially after tyncastle but as usual this weak board will do * all and they are sticking two fingers up at Celtic with appointing beaton .

    Yeah it’s no surprise they will target them two everyone does, but I guess my point is can the other guys in their team do their jobs to pin them in? Cantwell couldn’t cover McGregor the last time and he ran the game.

    Taylor isn’t the best at handling a press but if people make themselves available he can play a good forward pass of his left.

    Where I don’t want them taking unnecessary risks and I am not opposed to going direct on occasion, we can’t get stuck constantly doing that a giving them the ball back. Games where this team have caused us problems have largely been because of that style of play and giving up possession to easily.

    One of our big chances in this game is breaking that initial press as they are wide open after that and it’s been that way since Gerrard used the narrow midfield play to suffocate the centre of the park. A quick switch of play leaves them exposed and short of defensive numbers. We need to exploit that and be clinical when we do.

    It's only the Rangers board that allowed to do such things.

    Our board would be fined enough money to keep the lights on at the shitpit

    Gallus as * of them to appoint Beaton for this, not even trying to hide it. I hope Rodgers has something to say about it in his presser.

    Taylor is actually decent in possession, a good passer of the ball I think. But with Scales, I'd genuinely tell him just to shell it every time he touches it. He's that * bad. I'm sick of seeing the useless * pass it to opposition or straight out the pitch.

    Cantwell done a number on Cal a while back, think it was when that gobshite Beale first came in, he had him man mark Cal and it stifled our whole game. I think they'll go for that approach again and we'll struggle to get out.

    Aye, I was just saying that that hun hasn't given any insight on their game plan. We all know what they'll try to do.

    We've struggled against terrible teams who are pressing us when we feel the need to keep hold of possession. Most goals have been conceded because of mistakes when pressed. Just go * long when nothing is on. We have the pace up top to exploit it at times.

    We win the midfield battle, we win the game. No reason why we shouldn't be winning it. None of their central midfielders are better than McGregor or Iwata or O'Riley or Hatate.

    We turn up, we win. It's all about attitude.

    The only real game I can think that would have been was the one after we won the league? Other than that we beat them in all the other games.

    What a surprise, but just get on with it.

    Does it really matter who is ref, Walsh being the best of a horrible bunch.

    I think the SFA have just piled tons of pressure on beaton..it's stupid appointing him for 2 reasons. after what Rodgers said there's quite clearly no trust in him being impartial and 2 the Huns will accuse us of putting pressure on him so he's the reason they lost. He's going to be watched like a hawk.

    It definitely could matter..

    Just sitting there taking Hun supporting officials is incomprehensible to me... the club should be doing much much more and can't understand fans who accept it either..

    I'm pretty shocked they gave it to Beathun. I thought they'd at least hold off until the game at Parkhead and give him that when the heat was off him a bit.
    The pressure on him will be immense and you'd think he would have to at least try to be fairer than usual but none of them have any shame and they don't have to fear being called out by the media and our board are toothless. They've blatantly cheated so many times it shows they just don't give a * so I can see it being business as usual.

    We beat them but their plan of shutting Cal down definitely worked. The game at Celtic Park where that auld beast, McGregor came out like an old man, and Jota went around him ... They had large spells of being better team iirc. I was at it and it was the first time I remember thinking they had a specific plan and to a degree it was working. There was 2 or 3 games where they stuck to Cal like flies around * and we struggled because of it.

    The midfield is so important on Sunday, they'll have that big lump of wid, Lundstrom, trying to kick anything that moves. We need to be quicker and out outwork them.

    I would get at there CBs Souttar and Goldson are slower than a week in jail our attackers are all quick in behind is the best option

    I like Maeda going 1v1 with tavpen it nullifies his attacking presence in lots of ways so I’m ok with that Khun will have Barasic or Yilmaz pinned as he can go both ways.

    We can go long bypass the press and get joy in behind if you see they’re back line it’s not great going back the way

    Didn't Gerrard complain about Collum then he didn't get a Rangers game for months.

    Double standards at play.
