Celtic have some key players to come back but if we continue our away form, the league will already be beyond this group by the time we have a full squad to choose from.

Three of Celtic’s next four SPFL ties are away and it doesn’t get any easier. Celtic will play Motherwell, Aberdeen and Hibernian away from home and the one game we have at home will be at Dundee Utd.

Celtic are Jekyll and Hyde when it comes to home and away form. We have not won an away game in the SPFL since February. Ange has failed to win the first three away games 0/9 points for the Hoops is utterly unacceptable.

We know how Livi want to play and will play, we know what Motherwell, Hibernian and Aberdeen will want to do, yet we don’t appear to be equipped to deal with things.

Ange needs to find a way to win and quickly. Celtic fans will continue to back the Australian through this rebuild, but he has to continue to deliver progress. The game against Livingston was the first game this season we couldn’t really find any tangible positivity.

The manager has been up against it from the start, he’s shown signs he can get this team playing but how many points can we expect from the next three away days?


  1. We all know how teams will play against us except for the back room staff who should be letting the manager know what we already know, time to clear out Kennedy and the rest of them and bring in someone who will tell Ange what it’s really going to like ( Jansen and McLeod) . If not it’s going to be excuse after excuse all season.

  2. It will be draw, lose, lose. Celtic are a poor side Kyogo covered a lot of this up. Today most of the team shamed the club. McCarthy, Turnbull, Abada were a disgrace. They should make a public apology. I don’t actually know if these guys are any good. OK when 4-0 up against relegation fodder. Anything else is beyond them. Every decision Abada made today was wrong. McCarthy’s best days are behind him and he will disappear quick enough to pick up a wage for the next three years injured most of the time. As for Ange, well he won’t last long. At 2-0 up you think Celtic might draw at 1-0 down you know they are beat. The whole mentality is wrong. It’s going to be painful to endure.

  3. I don’t want to join the negativity no hope brigade. But The defence has changed yet again today. Is there not a manager who is going to over=rule this feckin points system for picking players and give the defence time to knit. Defenders ability may be questionable, but the defence has been made up of three different goalkeepers and a combination of the following defenders to “build a defence” with. Starfelt, Bitton, Welsh, Carter-Vickers, Hjelde,Taylor, Ralston, Juranovic, Murray, Montgomery and also featuring today, Bolingoli. The season has hardly started.
    Yep, a model of consistency ! Is John Kennedy still around ????

  4. I agree that Ange has run out of good faith. Three away losses in the league so early in the season says all that needs saying. This simply does not happen under top managers. I hope never again to see McCarthy, Bolingoli or Bitton in a Celtic team. Ange needs to fix the issues very soon or he’ll find himself at risk of being fired by Christmas. He needs to start by getting Forrest out of his long-term sick bed mentality and getting that Greek striker on the park to earn his wage. Bottom line is he’ll lose his job if he keeps dropping points, especially with the money that’s been spent bringing in players.

    • Martin , I am sure Ange will appreciate your words of encouragement and support for both himself and his players . Even the less intelligent of our supporters know that the pre-season is used to give young players and others a run out so that the manager can access whether any of them may be of use to him .
      I am reserving my judgment on Ange & players and am certainly not judging them on that pitch within 3 days of putting on a very creditable performance against a top Spanish side
