All that's wrong in Scottish football in the statement from Auchinleck Talbot manager after game " We lost 5-0 and didn't get a player booked, I'm disappointed in that" There's too many dinosaurs coaching grass roots football in Scotland, we need to change this get intae them attitude.

So if Calmac is out for an extended period of time it will clearly be a loss. Joe Hart will be the captain during that time period. I am not a big fan of having keepers as your captain. I much prefer the player to be in amongst the play. The biggest issue is outfield leaders. Who would be next in line if not Hart?

{Ed007's Note - Does it really matter in the short term who's captain on the pitch? Will wearing the arm band make Hart a better 'keeper or Forrest/Ralston a better player?}

23 Jan 2022 00:31:27
It probably doesn't but as I said the biggest problem is outfield leaders. We have signed some good quality players but are going to be missing our 3 starting CM's from the first half of the season. We have good players who can come in and play but some games require that leadership to get a result over the line. Ralston/ Forrest aren't names that scream leader to me. Forrest has done well as a player but I don't see him as that vocal leader when fit.

Forrest seems to be a good shout. The footage of him interacting with the new lads suggests to me that he's something of a custodian of the club's traditions now. Haven't seen enough of McCarthy to know if that would an appropriate choice. CCV? Juranovic maybe?

Before the end of this month, we need to get a decent goalkeeper in .

22 Jan 2022 23:48:25
We have the best keeper in the league already, some people are just never happy.

22 Jan 2022 23:37:28
aindoh,
Realistically, which keeper would you bring in for Celtic?
Celtic have recently given Hazard and Bain new contracts but I don’t believe they’re the answer to challenge Joe Hart and neither is Barkas.
Celtic can now command relatively decent fees for our keepers because they’re under new contracts.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jan 2022 00:26:39
BB Aindoh just doesn't like Hart. He'd much prefer Gordon.

totally lost here. one minute we've got a good team with a decent bench. 2 seconds later were on our arse?

22 Jan 2022 23:44:30
I mentioned earlier, that this season has been one step forward and then 2 steps backwards.
Celtic have the best team in the country but the constant setbacks is frustrating.

That’s Celtic supporters Gerry.
Tonight we got kicked and harried all over a 4g pitch by journeymen footballers. We were not allowed to play our natural game and that’s cup football in Scotland especially when you draw a lower league team away, but we made it. However, it wasn’t pretty and some supporters will blame the team and the manager for that
Me . I think Alloa made the most of what they’ve got, and that includes the pitch (doesn’t stop me thinking that 4g should be banned in top class football) . but, as I said, it wasn’t pretty to watch. 🥃.

The Manager's fault that a player is injured?
How does that work?
Players are available for selection and CalMac is the captain.
He just got two weeks rest.
Trust in Ange 🙏🙏.

Since the end of January 2017 ( 5 years )
Callum McGregor has only missed 10 league games for Celtic and a couple of those matches he was still available on the bench.
Our league record without Calmac is not very good, with only 4 victories,4 draws and 2 defeats.

The tackle on guchi is a shocker, we might to send a wee letter in.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 22:21:05
And we rested him last season in a cup game against Ross county and got papped oot.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 22:44:46
Mally, I would be surprised to see Guchi making the Hearts game.
He couldn’t put weight on his foot.
It would be a blow because he could be McGregor’s replacement. ( if injured )
Ange is a positive guy but how many times this season has he said it’s not a bad injury and the player is out for weeks or months.
That’s why it’s a worry when Ange mentioned Callum’s injury was substantial.

Sounds familiar.

Maybe clutching at straws here but are players no playing with these protective face masks now when they’ve broken the cheekbones?

22 Jan 2022 22:17:00
It could be an option in a couple of weeks but I don’t expect to see him playing against Hearts on Wednesday.
One of our guys posted about Maeda still being available against Sevco.
There’s a chance he won’t play for Japan on the Tuesday 1st February with a 10am kickoff time.
It’s over 30 hours until the Glasgow Derby but it’s a massive 15 hours flight to Glasgow.
That’s also clutching at straws because I would imagine there would be a greater risk of Maeda also picking up an injury, after such a long flight and then playing.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 22:33:45
Maeda could catch one of the American jets that flew over Scotland this week and be here in 10 minutes.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 21:22:16
Another Cup Win and a home draw in the next round are the positives.
But it's another one step forward and two steps back this season.
As soon as Celtic look like building momentum, we get more injuries to our best players and it didn't help that Maeda also got called up for Japan.
Celtic have now won 19 games in a row when Don Robertson has been our referee.
But that's 3 games in a row he's refused to protected our Celtic players.
Tonight should've been a straight red,
Butcher of Dundee Utd received a retrospective ban because Robertson never done his job properly and Porteous should've also received a straight Red card for a shocking challenge on Calmac in our 3-1 victory at Easter Road.
Porteous received a straight red at Ibrox for less.

22 Jan 2022 23:01:00
Buzz red possibly but please stop the ref carry on its embarrassing, thought you were better than that, move on.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 23:50:24
Brian,
I didn’t stop your club from writing a letter to complain about referees this week.
Now that’s embarrassing.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 20:10:07
Just reading postecoglou saying McGregors injury is more significant than the other two that's not good news hope it isn't too serious.

22 Jan 2022 20:17:30
It looks like a smashed cheekbone Calmac Ideguchi class
Biton McCarthy poor.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 20:22:34
We should have enough midfielders, although none as good as Calum, even with long term injury, to cover for him.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 20:47:01
Sorry guys McGregor injury down to Ange plain and simple no need to play him, same as playing Kyogo against Betis he makes some poor decisions.
Also once again our players seem to be scared of a plastic pitch, and our build up play so slow.
While I am having a moan, Scales is NOT Celtic class and Mc Carthy waste of a jersey, thank goodness big Hart was on his game or that could have been embarrassing.
No tonight Ange made a ba! s up of team selection.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 21:00:43
That will be our whole midfield unavailable that’s played most of this season.
Turnbull, Rogic and McGregor.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 21:21:47
Totally agree about mcgregor he should have been rested tonight 100% especially being without rogic n turnbull for next few games. But saying scales is not celtic class is a bit harsh I thought he played well tonight.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 21:29:27
Fully agree timalloy. Ange playing mcgregor with what was coming up was a crazy decision. I said if another midfield like mccarthy, Bitton etc can't be enough to beat a team like alloa then they shouldn't be at celtic. It could be a season changing decision to have played mcgregor tonight. If it is a fracture then he is gone for a long time. Poor management decision to play him.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 21:34:14
Feck me Mccarthy never put a foot wrong what yous watching.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 21:41:18
I can’t blame Ange for Calmac getting injured tonight,
Kyogo against Betis, I could.
Ange can’t rest all of our players.
I would’ve been annoyed if Joe Hart or Giakoumakis got injured tonight because we haven’t got decent replacements.
It’s down to more bad luck for Ange and Celtic.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 21:56:20
And when am on scales played well put some great crosses in.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2022 23:04:19
With injuries calmac should not have started 100 percent buzz,
