I agree with Ed - I believe Celtic should aim to blood at least 1 or 2 players in the first team every season. There has to be light at the end of the tunnel for the youth - fans has to be patient with their progression.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yer totally agree other wise what's the point even having an academy I we bring through great young players with potential and just let them go it really bugs me.

I would also like to see more youth get their chance. I also think if they are good enough and ready they will get their chance. Many on here are critical of Mikey but he is clearly deemed to be the one who is ready to be involved. Don't think young players should play for the sake of it. But if like KT they show they are ready they will get a chance. I get the point about playing them when we are at home to a St Mirren or Hamilton but what about the current finger players. Do we get rid of them and end up having to play youngsters when we are hit with injuries, suspensions and fixture congestion? I think loans are probably best for a lot. More youngsters should take the calmac route to the first team.

There were people on here saying CalMac would never make it at Celtic and he would end up at Notts county or that level. No point in having a excellent youth system without any progression the kids need to be out learning the hard way and playing under pressure. It’s a shame we don’t have a colt team in the 3rd division.

{Ed007's Note - Neil Lennon didn't fancy McGregor and if he had stayed on as manager in 2014 McGregor would have left.}

Robertson Welsh and dembelle should be used a bit more this season.

Ed I remember lennon saying McGregor would have to leave to get the game time he would want when he returned from loan. Also mentioned making room in the squad.

04 Jul 2020 19:16:57
If players aren't capable of playing for us at the age of 18/ 19/ 20, say at home, against the likes of Hamilton and Ross County then I'd seriously question if they were good enough. The biggest question though is whether the manager is willing to give them a chance. Especially with the pressure this season will bring going for 10.

That’s unreal Ed as he always looked a good player when young he rarely gave ball away and is a fantastic footballer
Just another thing we can be grateful to Ronny for.

{Ed007's Note - Sssshhhh! You're not allowed to praise Ronny lol

Celtic fans practically crucified wee McGregor his first 2 season.

04 Jul 2020 21:43:34
A remember that Kev I was at a game with my old man and there was a clown screaming he was a donkey I often wonder what he thinks now!
Nah Ed I will always be a fan of RD if he had the same backing as the Rat it would have been a lot different for him.

{Ed007's Note - With a strong DOF to keep Lawwell in check things would have been very different and the same thing is going to happen with Lennon if Hammond hasn't got the minerals to push back against Lawwell and the board.}

04 Jul 2020 23:28:10
Ronnie was a legend he didn't get the backing he deserved or the praise he was due a lot of people forget what he did with no money.

05 Jul 2020 10:35:21
Was McGregor no playing RW then? Remember him having a good first half to the season then he kind of got sussed out and went on a dry spell that's when fans was getting on his case about needing dropped. To be fair it done him the world of good in the long run.
