    Paranoia reigns at Darkheid

    My contempt for the bigot sisters is evenly shared. But Celtic have confirmed tonight why I despise them so much! The BBC Scotland news has revealed tonight that Celtic are to approach the SFA about unfair refereeing decisions they have suffered. What a joke! The number of doubtful decisions I have seen them given against us alone makes this step they are taking utterly risible and smacking of desperation.

    I thought the decisions by the ref evened themselves out over the course of a season.

    IE. The bigots get an equal amount of decisions in their favour
    They're gone, not here, forgotten
    The maroon brigade now cry
    The city is now Hibernian
    The team that would not die

    They SFA should tell them to F off and fine them for bringing the game into disrepute and questioning the referees integrity. Oh wait, that would only happen if the other 10 teams done this. Weegie fvckers, I hate them.

    They are trying to put pressure on the referee before the Old Firm game...sheer desperation.

    Re: Paranoia reigns at Darkheid

    From a deluded Cellic fan at work:

    Decisions that have went against Celtic have cost Celtic 9 points this season. Rangers have gained 6 points from dodgy decisions and have stayed in the Scottish Cup due to a dodgy decision. A potential 15 point swing based on poor refereeing decisions.
    3 opposing SPL managers make admission to the poor decisions against Celtic and a ref admits to error.
    8 stonewall penalties denied for Celtic and 4 valid goals chopped off.
    Here are just some examples and quotes from media.
    10 February 2010 - Motherwell 1 Rangers 1
    Motherwell denied a goal which was 2 yards onside that would have put them 2-0 up. Linesman flagged incorrectly for offside.
    Craig Brown was livid after seeing TV evidence showing goal was well onside, TV pundits Hendry and Butcher both agree goal should have stood. Ray Stubbs on ESPN said that point could make all the difference at end of season.
    ONE point gained for Rangers
    16 January 2010 - Celtic v Falkirk 3 major decisions go against Celtic
    1. Hand ball by Falkirk defender - no penalty
    2. Fortune pulled down in box - no penalty
    3. Arthur handles ball 17 yards from goal 1 yard inside his box and a free kick is given to Falkirk 20 yards from goal. This could have given Falkirk the winning goal
    Referee - Alan Muir
    Mail on Sunday - 'Falkirk manager Eddie May said: "Overall, I thought it was a fair result. But I think they should have had a penalty."
    Daily Mail - 'Alan Muir denied the Parkhead club a late penalty claim - when Brian McLean tangled with Fortune - in the 1-1 draw with Falkirk on Saturday. Hinkel was also unhappy about Celtic keeper Artur Boruc being penalised for apparently stepping out of his area late on. "It's not really my thing to say something about referees but, once again, we had some very strange decisions," said Hinkel. Not even just the penalty - look at the situation when Artur had a free-kick given against him.
    TWO points dropped. Opposing manager admits Celtic should have had penalty.
    10 January 2010 - Hamilton v Rangers
    3-2 down and a very very doubtful penalty given to Rangers, Hamilton player lying on ground while trying to move his hand away hand ball penalty given.
    Referee Charlie Richmond
    Scotsman - "They needed a touch of good fortune to equalise when referee Charlie Richmond rather harshly penalised Hamilton debutant Stuart Elliott for handball, awarding the spot-kick from which Kenny Miller converted."
    A gift given to Rangers by ref to keep them in the Cup. Its okay saying Richmond denied Miller a penalty in the replay but if it was not for the ludicrous decision in first game there would have been no replay.
    3 January 2010 - Celtic v Rangers
    2 shocking decisions cost Celtic the 3 points (regardless of the poor finishing) Fortune scores a goal - chopped off incorrectly.
    Lafferty assaults Hinkel - a red card offence but only yellow given.
    Referee - Steve Conroy
    Scotsman - "Following the controversial decision by Conroy to disallow what looked like a perfectly good Fortune goal after 19 minutes. Moments later, Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty was perhaps fortunate only to be booked for a late challenge on Celtic right-back Andreas Hinkel."
    TWO points dropped. ONE point gained for Rangers. 2 derbies in a row that multiple decisions go against Celtic.
    12 December 2009 - Motherwell v Celtic
    Celtic denied TWO stonewall penalties.
    Samaras chopped in box in 1st half - No penalty.
    Hand ball by Motherwell defender - No penalty.
    Referee - Charlie Richmond
    Celtic do get penalty but only after having 3 claims for a penalty, two of which were stonewallers.
    Guardian - "Even if Celtic did have a legitimate claim for a penalty when Samaras was tripped by Reynolds. Another two poor decisions from referee Charlie Richmond denied them penalties after McGeady had equalised. When Celtic were finally awarded a penalty for Saunders's foul on Samaras, Robson gave the goalkeeper an easy save with a weak shot close to his left side."
    8 November 2009 - Falkirk v Celtic
    At 3-3 in last minute Celtic had a goal disallowed when TV showed it was ONSIDE.
    Flag goes up for offside when Samaras clearly onside right through on goal.
    Referee - Brian Winter
    Daily Record - "Celtic fans yelped in frustration - and their mood would not have improved when television replays showed assistant Lawrence Kerrigan was wrong to flag for offside when Samaras was played in behind the Bairns defence in injury time."
    His shot may have been blocked by Olejnik but it dropped to McDonald who poked the ball into the net only to see the flag fluttering along his line of vision. To be fair, Celtic players kept their protests to a minimum.
    TWO points dropped
    4 October 2009 - Rangers v Celtic
    Celtic denied TWO stonewall penalties. Maloney booked for diving. Referee later apologises for getting one penalty decision rong.
    Lafferty assaults Zhing Zhi and Weir recklessly follows through on McDonald. Neither booked.
    Referee - Craig Thomson
    STV website and various media - "Old Firm referee Craig Thomson has admitted hes 'disappointed' at getting his decision wrong when he decided not to award Celtic a penalty in the 12th minute. Hugh Dallas said: 'Craig and I have had our post match de-brief. Whilst I would compliment Craig for his overall handling of yesterday's encounter, he is disappointed at his error of judgement when he decided against awarding a penalty to the visiting team in the 12th minute.'"
    Motherwell manager Jim Gannon later said: "Right now there is a question mark over the standard of our refereeing, and it affects the SPL table. After the last Old Firm game Hugh Dallas had to defend the referee [Craig Thomson]. But the result of that match might have been different had the ref got the big decisions correct.
    At the end of the season Celtic could look back and say, That result cost us the title. The fact is, if no one speaks up, then nothing will change.
    Assuming the worst Celtic would have gained a draw with 2 or 3 penalties being awarded.
    ONE point dropped. TWO gained by Rangers.
    26 September 2009 - Rangers v Aberdeen
    McCulloch elbows Aberdeen player deliberately. No card and No TV evidence case by SPL.
    Referee - Iain Brines
    Daily Record - "Rangers midfielder Lee McCulloch, however, was fortunate not to pick up a red card from Brines for an elbow on McGuire."
    Rangers would have been playing 45 mins with 10 men if Brines had done his job. Next match for Rangers was Old Firm game. McCulloch escapes ban which could have been a 3 match ban for violent conduct.
    21 September 2009 - Celtic v Hearts
    McGinn chopped in box. Stonewall penalty denied with 5 mins to go.
    Referee - Dougie McDonald
    Daily Record - "The Northern Irish international was brought down inside the box by Lee Wallace with five minutes to go of Sunday's SPL clash at Parkhead, only for referee Dougie McDonald to award a corner to the bemusement of everyone inside the stadium."
    Belfast Telegraph - "Five minutes from the end of normal time, the Irishman was denied what looked a clear-cut penalty by referee Dougie McDonald when he appeared to be chopped down by Jambos' left-back Lee Wallace as he burst into the Hearts penalty area. "
    Celtic scored in 93rd minute and got the 3 points.
    13 September - 2009 - Celtic v Dundee Utd
    Celtic had a Samaras goal incorrectly chopped off for offside. Also denied stonewall penalty when Dodds handled ball in last minute. Dodds admitted to hand ball. Levein said he was surprised he never caught it.
    Referee - Steve Conroy.
    Scotland on Sunday - "Levein left the field quietly at the end and there was probably a reason for that. His side appeared to come out the right side of two highly contentious calls in the second half; a Georgios Samaras "goal" chalked off and a Celtic penalty claim waved away by referee Steve Conroy. The "goal" was put away by Samaras just before the hour mark and only a couple of minutes after he came on for Landry N'Guemo."
    Tony Mowbray, in his understated way, challenged us to look at the incident on video, the comment of a man who is convinced that Samaras' effort should have stood. Much later, a couple of minutes into injury time in fact, an Andreas Hinkel cross hit Darren Dodds on the arm and many a spot-kick has been given in such circumstances. Asked about it later, Levein offered a cheeky response: "I've spoken to Darren about it and he said he was really disappointed he never held it. Dodds said: "The ball hit my head and then hit my thumb." That's that, then. It should have been a penalty."
    TWO points dropped.
    30 August 2009 - Hibs v Celtic
    McGeady sent off for diving 45 yards from goal after riding a few tackles after going on a run.
    Referee - Dougie McDonald
    24 August 2009 - Hearts v Rangers
    Rangers heading for a draw, awarded penalty in last minute for tackle which looked soft and looked outside box.
    Referee - Craig Thomson
    Daily Mail - "The Tynecastle side thought the penalty was harsh, arguing that the foul by Ismael Bouzid on Steven Naismith was committed outside the penalty box, while Rangers considered Thomson unlucky to be red-carded."
    TWO points gained for Rangers.

    At 3-3 in last minute Celtic had a goal disallowed when TV showed it was ONSIDE.
    Flag goes up for offside when Samaras clearly onside right through on goal.
    Referee - Brian Winter
    Daily Record - "Celtic fans yelped in frustration - and their mood would not have improved when television replays showed assistant Lawrence Kerrigan was wrong to flag for offside when Samaras was played in behind the Bairns defence in injury time."
    His shot may have been blocked by Olejnik but it dropped to McDonald who poked the ball into the net only to see the flag fluttering along his line of vision. To be fair, Celtic players kept their protests to a minimum.
    TWO points dropped
    4 October 2009 - Rangers v Celtic
    Celtic denied TWO stonewall penalties. Maloney booked for diving. Referee later apologises for getting one penalty decision rong.
    Lafferty assaults Zhing Zhi and Weir recklessly follows through on McDonald. Neither booked.
    Referee - Craig Thomson
    STV website and various media - "Old Firm referee Craig Thomson has admitted hes 'disappointed' at getting his decision wrong when he decided not to award Celtic a penalty in the 12th minute. Hugh Dallas said: 'Craig and I have had our post match de-brief. Whilst I would compliment Craig for his overall handling of yesterday's encounter, he is disappointed at his error of judgement when he decided against awarding a penalty to the visiting team in the 12th minute.'"
    Motherwell manager Jim Gannon later said: "Right now there is a question mark over the standard of our refereeing, and it affects the SPL table. After the last Old Firm game Hugh Dallas had to defend the referee [Craig Thomson]. But the result of that match might have been different had the ref got the big decisions correct.
    At the end of the season Celtic could look back and say, That result cost us the title. The fact is, if no one speaks up, then nothing will change.
    Assuming the worst Celtic would have gained a draw with 2 or 3 penalties being awarded.
    ONE point dropped. TWO gained by Rangers.
    26 September 2009 - Rangers v Aberdeen
    McCulloch elbows Aberdeen player deliberately. No card and No TV evidence case by SPL.
    Referee - Iain Brines
    Daily Record - "Rangers midfielder Lee McCulloch, however, was fortunate not to pick up a red card from Brines for an elbow on McGuire."
    Rangers would have been playing 45 mins with 10 men if Brines had done his job. Next match for Rangers was Old Firm game. McCulloch escapes ban which could have been a 3 match ban for violent conduct.
    21 September 2009 - Celtic v Hearts
    McGinn chopped in box. Stonewall penalty denied with 5 mins to go.
    Referee - Dougie McDonald
    Daily Record - "The Northern Irish international was brought down inside the box by Lee Wallace with five minutes to go of Sunday's SPL clash at Parkhead, only for referee Dougie McDonald to award a corner to the bemusement of everyone inside the stadium."
    Belfast Telegraph - "Five minutes from the end of normal time, the Irishman was denied what looked a clear-cut penalty by referee Dougie McDonald when he appeared to be chopped down by Jambos' left-back Lee Wallace as he burst into the Hearts penalty area. "
    Celtic scored in 93rd minute and got the 3 points.
    13 September - 2009 - Celtic v Dundee Utd
    Celtic had a Samaras goal incorrectly chopped off for offside. Also denied stonewall penalty when Dodds handled ball in last minute. Dodds admitted to hand ball. Levein said he was surprised he never caught it.
    Referee - Steve Conroy.
    Scotland on Sunday - "Levein left the field quietly at the end and there was probably a reason for that. His side appeared to come out the right side of two highly contentious calls in the second half; a Georgios Samaras "goal" chalked off and a Celtic penalty claim waved away by referee Steve Conroy. The "goal" was put away by Samaras just before the hour mark and only a couple of minutes after he came on for Landry N'Guemo."
    Tony Mowbray, in his understated way, challenged us to look at the incident on video, the comment of a man who is convinced that Samaras' effort should have stood. Much later, a couple of minutes into injury time in fact, an Andreas Hinkel cross hit Darren Dodds on the arm and many a spot-kick has been given in such circumstances. Asked about it later, Levein offered a cheeky response: "I've spoken to Darren about it and he said he was really disappointed he never held it. Dodds said: "The ball hit my head and then hit my thumb." That's that, then. It should have been a penalty."
    TWO points dropped.
    30 August 2009 - Hibs v Celtic
    McGeady sent off for diving 45 yards from goal after riding a few tackles after going on a run.
    Referee - Dougie McDonald
    24 August 2009 - Hearts v Rangers
    Rangers heading for a draw, awarded penalty in last minute for tackle which looked soft and looked outside box.
    Referee - Craig Thomson
    Daily Mail - "The Tynecastle side thought the penalty was harsh, arguing that the foul by Ismael Bouzid on Steven Naismith was committed outside the penalty box, while Rangers considered Thomson unlucky to be red-carded."
    TWO points gained for Rangers.

    What is his point here?

    Apart from the lie that McCheaty "rode a few tackles" - he didn't.
    Is the Mhank suggesting that McCheaty DIDN'T dive?
    He did - it was a perfectly correct decision bt the ref.
    All the rest of that rant I can't be bothered reading - but no doubt it will be in the same vein as the bit I witnessed and highlighted - utter pish.

    I hope the Huns take 6 or more off them on Sunday.
    Fcukin greetin faced gap-toothes knuckle dragging white socks and black slip-ons shell suit wearing scumbags that they are.


    I'm not happy that "secret meetings" have taken place with the Mhanks about refereeing either. I thought it was the other half of the twisted sisters that championed secret societies.

    Scumbags.
    The lot of them.

    From a deluded Cellic fan at work:

    Decisions that have went against Celtic have cost Celtic 9 points this season. Rangers have gained 6 points from dodgy decisions and have stayed in the Scottish Cup due to a dodgy decision. A potential 15 point swing based on poor refereeing decisions.
    3 opposing SPL managers make admission to the poor decisions against Celtic and a ref admits to error.
    8 stonewall penalties denied for Celtic and 4 valid goals chopped off.
    Here are just some examples and quotes from media.
    10 February 2010 - Motherwell 1 Rangers 1
    Motherwell denied a goal which was 2 yards onside that would have put them 2-0 up. Linesman flagged incorrectly for offside.
    Craig Brown was livid after seeing TV evidence showing goal was well onside, TV pundits Hendry and Butcher both agree goal should have stood. Ray Stubbs on ESPN said that point could make all the difference at end of season.
    ONE point gained for Rangers
    16 January 2010 - Celtic v Falkirk 3 major decisions go against Celtic
    1. Hand ball by Falkirk defender - no penalty
    2. Fortune pulled down in box - no penalty
    3. Arthur handles ball 17 yards from goal 1 yard inside his box and a free kick is given to Falkirk 20 yards from goal. This could have given Falkirk the winning goal
    Referee - Alan Muir
    Mail on Sunday - 'Falkirk manager Eddie May said: "Overall, I thought it was a fair result. But I think they should have had a penalty."
    Daily Mail - 'Alan Muir denied the Parkhead club a late penalty claim - when Brian McLean tangled with Fortune - in the 1-1 draw with Falkirk on Saturday. Hinkel was also unhappy about Celtic keeper Artur Boruc being penalised for apparently stepping out of his area late on. "It's not really my thing to say something about referees but, once again, we had some very strange decisions," said Hinkel. Not even just the penalty - look at the situation when Artur had a free-kick given against him.
    TWO points dropped. Opposing manager admits Celtic should have had penalty.
    10 January 2010 - Hamilton v Rangers
    3-2 down and a very very doubtful penalty given to Rangers, Hamilton player lying on ground while trying to move his hand away hand ball penalty given.
    Referee Charlie Richmond
    Scotsman - "They needed a touch of good fortune to equalise when referee Charlie Richmond rather harshly penalised Hamilton debutant Stuart Elliott for handball, awarding the spot-kick from which Kenny Miller converted."
    A gift given to Rangers by ref to keep them in the Cup. Its okay saying Richmond denied Miller a penalty in the replay but if it was not for the ludicrous decision in first game there would have been no replay.
    3 January 2010 - Celtic v Rangers
    2 shocking decisions cost Celtic the 3 points (regardless of the poor finishing) Fortune scores a goal - chopped off incorrectly.
    Lafferty assaults Hinkel - a red card offence but only yellow given.
    Referee - Steve Conroy
    Scotsman - "Following the controversial decision by Conroy to disallow what looked like a perfectly good Fortune goal after 19 minutes. Moments later, Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty was perhaps fortunate only to be booked for a late challenge on Celtic right-back Andreas Hinkel."
    TWO points dropped. ONE point gained for Rangers. 2 derbies in a row that multiple decisions go against Celtic.
    12 December 2009 - Motherwell v Celtic
    Celtic denied TWO stonewall penalties.
    Samaras chopped in box in 1st half - No penalty.
    Hand ball by Motherwell defender - No penalty.
    Referee - Charlie Richmond
    Celtic do get penalty but only after having 3 claims for a penalty, two of which were stonewallers.
    Guardian - "Even if Celtic did have a legitimate claim for a penalty when Samaras was tripped by Reynolds. Another two poor decisions from referee Charlie Richmond denied them penalties after McGeady had equalised. When Celtic were finally awarded a penalty for Saunders's foul on Samaras, Robson gave the goalkeeper an easy save with a weak shot close to his left side."
    8 November 2009 - Falkirk v Celtic

    Re: Paranoia reigns at Darkheid

    From another `tic site......Regarding sanctions of "Bringing the game into dis-repute"........

    "Whilst such threats are the big stick I think speaking softly using the Mcleish Review is the right way to go. Subject of course to confirmation that the reality of the review matches the rhetoric.

    On your main point: Scottish Football more than at any time in our history DEPENDS on Celtc. It is something I think we as a Celtc familiy have not quite grown into so long have we been the poorer relation.

    We are now playing the game with our ball."

    Could you possibly make this sanctimonious $#@! up?

    Yes it fcukin did.

    I thought the daft ****s were "adopting" Celtc just as they pretended that holding their banners upside down was a deliberate ploy to upset their Chairman, and wearing white socks/black slip-on shoes/shellsuit bottoms, with one front tooth and a haircut from a blind marine barber was "irony".


    If you're going to post something "funny" can you fcukin PM me before I read it. You're no Jimmyhibs you know. You're the guy that loves/hates Jews. (It is deffo one or the other.)

    Bounce is getting too fcukin complicated.

    I'm confused


    I though the soapies actually used 'Celtc' first.

    Then we took the piss out of them for it.

    And now, it seems, they've adopted it back.

    And they are happy to have it.

    Re: Paranoia reigns at Darkheid

    Paranoia reigns at Darkheid? Are you kidding??.............

    "Wasnt sure where to post this... Really just a few thoughts that have been swirling in my head not just since Sunday but probably most of the season

    The Fact of the Matter

    Hugh Keevinss favourite line in recent months has been

    I only deal in facts.. Let me give you the facts

    It is in all honesty, a great line. A superb get out of jail free card when dealing with a ranting, paranoid football fan. It is also in fairness the truth. He is spot on. It is much preferable to have conversations on a factual basis, devoid of any supposition, inconsistencies, doubt or indeed paranoia. It is in reality the only way that you can influence, never mind win any argument.

    Let me then, in adopting the approach of that wise old journalist give you the facts

    Fact 1: Celtic have had a disproportionate amount of match defining decisions go against them during this SPL Season. I am not going to list them as they have been covered in previous articles both on other fans forum and indeed national newspapers. We know what they are

    Fact 2 Scott Brown by the letter of the laws of the game deserved his read card for violet conduct. It was perhaps harsh but if we apply the laws of the game then the referee had little option.

    Fact 3 Kyle Daugherty was also culpable of violent conduct in the afore mentioned incident by swinging his arms at Brown. Therefore by the laws of the game, he too deserved the same punishment as Brown. He received no punishment at all and as such the laws of the game were not correctly applied

    Fact 4 Majid Boughera by the letter of the laws of the game should have been sent off at least 3 occasions. Did FIFA not change the laws of the game to effectively outlaw tackles from the back? Do these same, universal laws not apply in the Greatest small country in the world?. Never mind a booking for persistent fouling, each of his challenges were red card offences.

    Fact 5 Boughera, having escaped his punishment then set up the winning goal therefore ensuring that the inability of the referee to send the player off had a significant and direct impact on the outcome of the match.

    These facts have made a clear and direct reference to the laws of the game to which a referee is there to uphold. Kenny Clark on Radio Scotland made clear reference to Dougie McDonald applying the laws of the game but became very sheepish and non committal in respect of the possibility of Boughera being ordered off. Only when pushed did he concede the fact that Boughera was fortunate to remain where he was He couldnt even bring himself to say the words

    Dougie McDonald failed to apply the laws of the game and send off the Rangers player. This gave Rangers assistance in winning the match

    The problem that we as Celtic Supporters have is that these laws of the game are being, at best, applied in a liberal manner by a collective group who refuse to admit their failings. We hear very often about sensible refereeing and that Scottish referees are amongst the best in being able to adopt a common sense approach to refereeing. However, the common sense approach that as fans we strive to see more of, is actually what is being used to our detriment by officialdom.

    When these facts are brought together in a clear, rational and logical fashion it is pertinently clear that Celtic were on the wrong side (again) of refereeing decisions that ultimately defined a match against Rangers. When you add this to the 2 other games against them this season, a picture as clear as day begins to develop. Huns / Media / former referees will inevitably point to one (or at a miraculous stretch of the imagination two) decisions in the match where they felt they were wronged. As Fair minded supporters we can probably accept this. However, where the balance of unfair / incorrect decisions stands at 5: 1 against one particular team then there is more than reasonable ground for having a sense of injustice. When this happens at every game against them this season. Rest assured though, we will receive a favourable decision on Sunday vs Falkirk. This will be designed to show us that we do get an even break..

    Unfortunately any sense of injustice is quickly dismissed at hand as having anything to do with an agenda or corrupt officials. Their integrity, as we are continually told, is beyond question. This is despite us living in a society where politicians, lawyers, accountants, policeman and even men of the cloth have their credentials and motives held up for debate and conjecture. Are referees really on a higher plain than these people? If so, why are they not running the country.oh wait Richard Nixon would have thought he was the luckiest man alive had he faced up to such a inquisitive and investigative culture as what we have in this country.


    Fact 6 A journalist of a non catholic background (no sniggering at the back please) stated openly on radio that it was his belief that Celtic suffered from institutionalised bigotry 40 years ago Instead of this comment being discussed and dissected it was instead ridiculed and immediately swept under the carpet and consigned to the unmentionable bucket.

    Fact 7. Less than 15 years ago, the Chief Executive of the Football Association to which referees are answerable to was found guilty of deliberately withholding the registration of a new player. i.e He cheated, discriminated against a member club.. call it what you want.

    So lets get this right Institutionalised bigotry has existed in this countrys recent past and despite being assured that it was no longer an issue in AD 1997 it rears its ugly head again, leading to the removal of the highest authority in the Scottish game. Yet despite these facts, we cannot even dare suggest that their might be the possibility of more sinister motives in how our club and its supporters are treated.

    The medias role in stifling any debate cannot be underestimated. At any sign of refereeing incompetence, they clam up and the well worn line about honest mistakes is rolled out. It is as tiresome as it is angering. Peter McGuire informed us last week that no referee in Scotland has ever been convicted of bias Very astute of him I am sure you would agree but what he failed to tell us was that no referee has ever been charged with it. And if the SFA, media, Huns have anything to do with it they never will. If the referees have truly nothing to hide then why does everything that their paymasters do is designed to do portray the complete opposite.

    It is also a fact that our performances in general this season have not been of the quality required to win a championship. However, we are continually told that this is the real reason we have failed this season. Blaming refereeing decisions, we are told, is only covering up the real issue but I would argue the opposite. It is because we have not been up to the mark, our enemies have used this as their excuse to cover up the incompetence/bias of the officials

    So where do we go from here? Celtics recent approach to the SFA on the matter and indeed the post-Brown red card appeal strategy be vitally important. Will it force real, lasting change in the way that the game is run in this country or will we receive the proverbial slap in the face and told to go home?"

    Of course not.

    I reckon the Mhanks are about to implode big time.
