    Same here for both of us! Although I can see us getting pumped against Milan...

    You're doing ok at the moment against SL, so let's hope you can hang onto the 0-1 lead, or extend it further!

    The second half was a bit of a farce after the downpour but great performance and what a winning goal, best of luck to Celtic against MIlan.

    Disappointing result for Celtic, thought they might have managed to achieve a draw in the second half.

    Yeah it looked that way mate, after largely being overrun in the first half, we scored a good goal and had chances to equalise but couldn't take them, then at the end when chasing an equaliser, got caught with a classic sucker punch.

    Look, much like Saturday, it was always going to be a big ask getting anything from this game with the players we had out. It's patently obvious just how important Jullien is to the team and our defence, and of course Edouard up front - they're both MASSIVE players for us, and so subsequently are massive losses.

    Couple that with the lack of match fitness of most of our other forwards, and it's obvious why we're struggling. We've got another difficult game on Sunday against Aberdeen, and TBH I think we're in for tough time until we get all our major players back and those who are, properly match fit, and so it's simply a case of being patient until that happens and the team starts to click again.

    Yeah good goal from roofe. He had a desire to do well there and their handbags at end was not great.
    Celtic were alas not quite at it first half, but at least came close to salvaging game.

    Yo daftees!

    Don't be shy in discussing another Rangers win yesterday, whilst we dropped another 2 points - I won't hold it against you, you know!

    We should've won, but chucked the 2 points away at the last minute, by giving away that penalty.

    As I said before, with the players we've had out, and many who've been out and back in not having played that much football, and so lacking match fitness, we're going to struggle until that situation is rectified, as well as the makeshift defence we're having to field, so yesterday's result was no surprise!

    Sadly (for us), I predict we're in for a touch spell until things improve, and also some players regaining their 'mojo', so I think more 'dodgy results' will follow until we start to click again, by which time, you guys will probably have the title wrapped up!

    Seriously though, on that point, I had the feeling before this season started that 10 was perhaps a step too far, and also as I'm a little superstitious, I get the feeling that neither team (Celtic or Rangers) are destined to win 10-in-a-row...

    It happened when you guys were so close under Walter Smith, but it just petered out in that last season - and I think the same's happening to us. However, no doubt the Covid shite has had a big impact on our results, and I also think that you guys are dealing better with playing in empty stadia, especially at home games where we're defo BADLY missing our fans, and which often act as an 'extra man'.

    Anyway, *if*, and it's a BIG IF (I also think unlikely), we're to take the title this year, it's only going to be after some kind of monumental comeback - and that's only IF you guys suffer a loss in form. I've always said that eventually Gerrard would win things at Rangers, given time, and I still stand by that now, as sooner rather than later it'll definitely become a reality.

    Marco.

    nothing is won in october, but i guess you can lose tyhings. gap is only 3 points if the game in hand is won.. rangers i think are stronger and celtic maybe weaker so it might be very close at end.
