    Your right it doesnt guarantee anything, but it shows the fans that the board are at least TRYING to support the advancement in these competitions that the fans crave. Instead of get there, show off our best players and sell them for huge profits without serious re-investment in the team.

    Spending millions would be the easy way out. I like that Celtic have taken the long term view and decided its better to invest wisely.

    On the plus side at least hardly any barca fans turned up to witness the humiliation.

    Spending millions is not the easy way out. Its what happens at every club playing the CL. If they sell a quality player, they attempt to replace him with a quality player.

    Im not just talking about the BIG teams either, go back 5-7 years and look at the pot 4 teams, then look at there rankings now. FC Basel, Shaktar Donestk, Rubin Kazan, FC Copenhagen, Metalist, BATE, all these clubs have advanced exponentially since they first turned up in pot 4, now you'd be lucky if Celtic to get a draw with these teams. The formula for small teams to progress in the CL is there, Celtic just dont want to follow it!!

    Against what some people say is the best team of all time.

    Could worse....

    We could have lost 12 against a team that lost 7 against the best team of all time.

    Don't talk ****e.

    Have you any idea how much money is going into Swiss football and how much Shaktar had to spend.

    Why do you think Brazilians go to the Ukraine and Russia FFS.

    Bayer Leverkusen lost five against a poor MU side.


    We budgeted for this, but simple fact is quality players won't come to the SPL. SEVCO in there or not. Makes no difference.


    WANYAMA was a solid wall in front of our defence last season, but he wouldn't have stayed and we cannot hold talented players back.

    WE ARE IN THE SAME POSITION AS BELGIAN SIDES. Any talent will walk. One season and gone.

    Virgil despite the score looked good and will go. That's the future for us.
