When I look at Celtic - which I try to avoid tbh - I just see Le Guen-era Rangers.

don't think we have any chance in the league this season. dont mind ange as far as i can tell - like him bamming up the press - but i feel he's on a hiding to nothing as there was too much of a rebuild needed.

feels funny to be happy that joe hart has signed for us. always thought he was a hugely overrated big haddy and a bit of a dick - love him now of course - but he's such a huge improvement over what we had.

james mccarthy signing almost pissed me off, should've signed him over a decade ago, when he was playing for hamilton, cunts a tim from castlemilk ffs.

i seem to remember we didn't take on mccarthy as a youth because he was too wee. which also boils the blood. neanderthal scottish football men

Pretty good results for Scottish teams so far - Hibs could do with a goal though.

not often Celtic and rangers drop points on the same day. although Celtic not winning away is getting to be quite a predictable occurrence.

So, as per fucking usual, Celtic are going to have to beat Rangers on their own as none of these other numpties are up to the task.

Bastards of Fish (Tom D.), Sunday, 6 February 2022 23:07 (two years ago) link

hearts looked pretty good in both second halves against celtic (at parkhead and tynecastle) - can rarely rely on them to do a job against the rangers II though

celtic just need to take it one game at a time - still think they'll drop more points. thankfully getting a bit more depth back for the bench - some finds this year in CCV, jota, o'riley, hatate, kyogo, jura and the new firmware updates we signed for rogic and bitton

Giakoumskis is good only because his is one of the names it's just fun to hear in a Scottish accent on Sportscene.

PS Jim in Vancouver if you're still around, I was in Vancouver recently and contemplated heading to the CSC since I was very nearby on two occasions at the start and end of my holiday. Those occasions were getting scudded off of The Rangers and getting scudded off of Hibs so I'm glad I didn't, but I probably should have checked to see if that was a thing you did and if you fancied a 4am pint.

im generally p patient with new coaches/managers as a rule of thumb, esp since CCV is out of the lineup and theyre playing children at cb. but losing to kilmarnock and then drawing st johnstone at home does not inspire a lot of hope for the season, let alone champions league.

Are you sure you're even Scottish? As soon as it went to VAR I suddenly remembered my place and why optimism isn't a thing that happens. Calling it for a non-existent foul then suddenly finding an offside decision that didn't flag VAR instead is this year's whatever-the-fuck-that-Hutton-against-Italy thing was.

EPL fans can moan about referees and VAR all they like but they should check out Scottish referees sometime. Anyway, as I do periodically, I annoyed myself by looking at Rangers FC's stats for the season. In their last 8 games in Scotland (League and League Cup) Rangers have been awarded 8 penalties (it's actually 9 in their last 10). They missed two of them but, nonetheless, James Tavernier (that's the right back, James Tavernier) is now averaging a goal every second game for them - a scoring rate few of their strikers have been able to match in the last few seasons. To be scrupulously fair though, Celtic get their fair share of dubious penalty decisions too.

Rangers do get slightly more pens than avg (relative to touches in box) but not significantly so.

Aberdeen also above the avg line.

Tavernier's scoring record in general is better than a lot of actual forwards - he's scored 80 goals in 292 games for Rangers. He's once been their leading goalscorer for the season and twice been runner-up. Admittedly he does score occasionally from free kicks and open play too but nonethless...
