Terminado

Well BR has called the board out and he is right.


“Yeah. My job is done then. Terminado. Gone.
“But that’s the challenge. You have to test yourself to the limit. You have to be courageous as a club.
“It’s a joy to work here. I love my life here and enjoy being the manager here. But it’s no good if I just sit back and get comfortable. Being comfortable is the enemy of progress.
“I never allow it in my own life or professional life. You see it in sports and in industry. The minute you think you’re doing okay it can quickly disappear, and that’s the greatest institutions.
“You have to be mindful of that and keep getting stronger and stronger."


“Dermot [Desmond], Peter [Lawwell] and Ian [Bankier] all want what’s best for Celtic. Critically, they are major shareholders and run the club. I have to respect that, and I do.
“My ambition is for Celtic. Every manger is ambitious but for me it’s inherently about the club. We’ve done a double treble, been invincible in one of those seasons, set a British record for unbeaten games.

“We don’t want to stand still. How do we improve? We improve in Europe and in order to do that, it’s simple, it’s quality players.
“The minute I start thinking otherwise and get comfortable, then progress stops. In football you can’t afford to do that.
“It’s too late once the rot sets in. It’s too late. I’ve always tried to guard against it. Especially after our first season, we built on it last year. We want to keep building it.
“I totally respect how difficult it can be, the financial side is tough at times."

Direct from BR mouth, his words, I expect the board to sanction some signings before the window shuts.

Good to hear their is no rift between himself and the main men on the board but also good to hear him publicly state his reasons, not fear that we are domestically not good enough, not slating his squad simply saying you have to keep progressing once you get comfy your done.


Very good way to operate, so cmon board you have the cash, back the man with the vision. Lets gub they Jambos whilst were at it.

This all seems strange

In May you would think the manager would have a good idea of what players he wants.

Submit list and budget numbers to the board.
Get some kind of agreement then go about getting them.

Some will fail obviously.

Is this all about McGinn?
Not sure what could be done about that if the guy didn't want to play Hamilton ect every other week.
He fancied a new challenge and possibly significantly more money.

So what is it about?
Have celtic been making offers and missing out that we are not aware of?

A lot of typing
