Are any Gers fans really saying when you tuped over and became a new club, sevco, you shouldn't have needed to start from the bottom tier? New team and all that. 😋Rangers are the ones responsible for why you weren't in the top league those seasons. Out of the competition fair and square. Celtic won all titles fairly. Sour grapes about 9IAR. Anything to void it😅

Hearts and dundee united weren't in the league as well. Take it the recent ones dont count also.

15/16 The reason Rangers weren't there is they got ripped a new one 6-1 on aggregate by Motherwell in the play off game in May 15. Nobody else's fault that you were Championship level & couldn't get up that year.

Here's a cracker from Thornton MM on FF this morning.

Just starts a wee bit mad before delusional moonhowling takes over in the final paragraph. I doubt if you'll ever see so many innaccuracies in so few words.

Anyone neutral watching the re-run of the 2002 Scottish cup final last night on BBC Scotland channel must be utterly baffled by the past rhetoric from Timmy that Hugh Dallas was a Referee with a bias towards Rangers.

His performance in that cup final would have made Kevin Clancy blush. He was Celtic's 12th man throughout the game.

For instance Chris Sutton should have been booked for a shocking body check on Cannigia which saw the Ranger having to leave the field of play (not to return to the action) Dallas didn't even speak to Sutton and Celtic exploited the ten man advantage and scored the opening goal.

Add to that moments later the blatant forearm from John Hartson into the face of Craig Moore should have saw him shown a straight red card. Again Dallas took no action.
There was many other instances but the denial of the stonewall penalty when Lovenkrands was blatantly shoved in the box by Mjallby seconds before he got the winner was absolute cowardice from Dallas.

Thankfully justice was done and LovelyPants gave us a dreamed deserved winner but it should never be forgotten how poor Dallas was that day.

Incidentally a few years after this match when he had hung up his whistle. Dallas applied for the Celtic chief executive job. He was unsuccessful in his application and the job went to ex commentator Jock Brown.

The other problem with these Astrix titles is that during this domination in a one horse race league, Celtic were consistently torn a new one in Europe each season - 7- 0 , 5-0 at home etc spring to mind.
Emphasising the lack of real quality of the team.
Don't shoot the messenger, just stating the facts.
Great Celtic teams that spring to mind, jock steins and Martin O'Neil's squads.

ffs I know we all enjoy a wum but it always amazes me how very prominent and influential people put themselves up for ridicule by playing to the galleries

Stupid thing to come out with. One lot will try and applaud and just as likely miss their own hands and the other lot will see him as a blinkered rse.

I see him as the latter.

Would we say Bluebell is prominent and influential?

Fair enough,
