    Hugely sad to see this descent to becoming 3rd rate no-hopers at every level.

    Kilmarnock beaten by a team of part timers. Celtic losing 4 goals at home and going out.
    It really is a true reflection of the level now.

    Even my team St Johnstone, one of the greatest teams ever...... so bad.
    I cringe now when I see them on telly, as I do with all footie I see from up there.

    Honestly, when I see second tier football in England, it is way ahead of anything I see in Scotland.
    I suppose Killie beaten by part timers from Wales is very telling in respect of current levels.

    Just so sad, and i dont understand why. The clubs must be getting money for TV rights. Crowds at Celtic are still large.

    It must just be that not enough kids are playing the game there now, and coming through. I dont know why.

    Did I say... very sad !!
    Celtic have been playing to a high standard but the team has kinda passed its sell by I think. It may take a bit of tin rattling to get it back; only time will tell.
    Rangers have been gash for years, so its nice to see them playing so well now. Hoping they keep it up tbh.

    Money wise, Celtic's wage bill is very high and was more than the whole Romanian premier league.... But the small teams, IE all bar the old firm struggle with poor crowds, poor sponsorship and very little tv money, yet the players still want decent money.
    Size of the population watching footie isnt enough to support all these pro teams now. simple maths

    I think that is the problem. Celtic are playing to a higher standard than any other team in Scotland, which is why they win almost always.

    But when playing against teams outside Scotland, their real standard is shown to be rather lacking in quality. Best of a bad bunch does not equal high standard.
    Or look at Killie. Did very well in Scotland last year. Europe watch out !!!!
    First challenge........ Knocked out by part timers from Wales, in Europe

    Itís like anything else, if you play with or against inferior folks, you descend to/ are pulled down to their level.

    To get better at anything you have to be challenged/ dragged up by that challenge.

    It isnt Celtics fault. They beat whatever is in front of them domestically, but that doesnít prepare them for out in the big bad world. Sadly.

    I see we are loaning in Andy King from Leicester City. Quite a good player and scores goals from midfield.
    Interesting that Brendan Rodgers is allowing it.

    Maybe a dud now?
    Thought it might have been Wilfred Boney lol

    Interesting end to the European Supercup.
    Don't get me wrong - Tammy Abraham's penalty kick was poor, but it's interesting that Adrian's feet were both clear and forward of the line when the ball was struck.
    Which means that VAR should have called it correctly, and the kick be retaken.

    You wonder why UEFA get booed every Champions League game in Bradford, Manchester?
    UEFA are a bent organisation, and they look benevolently on their darlings.
    Inconsistency and UEFA are bed mates.
