Celtic lose to Red Imps, Rangers, Hearts, Aberdeen

Post  TinyHandsOfConcrete on Wed Jul 13, 2016 6:27 pm

As Celtic lose out to Gibraltar's Lincoln Red Imps in Champions League qualifying, headline writers get busy: Shock of Gibraltar (Scotsman & Sun) Rocked! (Daily Mail) Rocky Horror (Daily Express) Wimps (Daily Record) Red Imps 1-0 Red faces (Times), Rock is a hard place for Celtic (The National)

Lincoln Red Imps captain hailed the victory as "a miracle" and believes his side can complete the job at Celtic Park next week. (Various)

Red Imps goalscorer Lee Casciaro, a 34-year-old Ministry of Defence police officer, says he was confident of causing Celtic problems since he is quicker than defenders Erik Sviatchenko and Efe Ambrose. (Sun)

Leicester forward Joe Dodoo, 21, was in Glasgow yesterday for talks with Rangers and trained with the Ibrox squad. (Various)

Hearts boss Robbie Neilson is expecting a slow tempo Europa League match against Birkirkara in the heat of Malta and warns his players to be alert when play resumes after any permitted water breaks. (Various)

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes plans to use Niall McGinn in Thursday's meeting with Ventspils, with the Northern Ireland forward rested last week following his exploits at Euro 2016. (The National)

And the Dons boss is warning that Ventspils are a much better Latvian side than Daugava Riga, who they hammered in 2014. (Various)

New Partick Thistle signing Ziggy Gordon admits to a "stressful" summer, not knowing his next destination after leaving Hamilton Accies. (Various)

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright reckons the SPFL should consider allowing more substitutions in the new-look League Cup group stages. (Sun)

Rangers manager Mark Warburton hits back at critics of Martyn Waghorn and James Tavernier, who have turned down new contract offers, saying they don't deserve any negative headlines and insisting they are fully committed to the club. (Various)

Joey Barton is unlikely to be fit for Rangers' opening matches in the League Cup since the experienced midfielder missed the club's North American training camp. (Various)

Sam Stanton and Alex Harris could be massive assets for Hibs this season, says team-mate Darren McGregor, with the midfield duo back at the club after loan periods in the last campaign. (Sun)

Former Celtic manager Ronny Deila is to take over at struggling Valerenga in his native Norway. (Various)

Both should be transfer-listed, with immediate effect. pirat

I recall you were less than enthusiastic about them joining in the first place

Tavernier was worse than bad in the Cup final - I used to really rate him - had a great start - not so sure now. THOC, if and when the main board comes back up, maybe worth reminding folk of the url for this board.

Hence the smiley.
Tavernier would be a decent attacking full-back if he could defend, but he's a bombscare in defence AND attack, whose decision-making is awful.
Waghorn's close control is, for a player who wants to run with the ball, absolutely shocking, and will not even make the small step-up from Championship to Premiership.
As we didn't expect to stay long in the Championship, I felt that a Premiership yard-stick was appropriate.
Sell them whilst the selling's good, and don't be greedy.
