    Unless SL can be implemented without fear or favour then it will not work who here would trust those in charge in Scotland to do so.

    Just watched a clip of wee Dembele scoring a late goal against Hearts today and I'm appalled to say that the same sh+te is being spewed from so called fans at a reserve match on a monday afternoon.

    I hope the link works.

    Trouble at mill.



    Bad Money?
    Shame for young Turnbull needs an op and rehabilitation of 10 to 12 weeks min so deal is officially off.

    Hopefully the youngster has a speedy recovery and is back playing for Motherwell as soon as possible.

    DAVID TURNBULL UPDATE: Motherwell have accepted a £3.25 million deal for the midfielder from Premier League club Norwich City. This is after Celtic pulled the plug.


    I have not seen a mention of what the norwich bid was I think mr charters has got muddled as 3.25mill was the bid accepted from Celtic.

    Bbc and stv only places a figure is released. Let’s see how long his agent waits before agitating for a Christie move.

    As a Bampot, I am always quick to criticise the way RIFC/TRFC goes about its business.

    So, it would be churlish to avoid criticising Lawwell and his handling of the Turnbull transfer (?) from Motherwell.


    The salient point of this saga seems to be that the player's agent is trying to hustle a better deal for his client.

    The phrase "No sh!t Sherlock!" springs to mind.


    It would also appear that a helpful leak was provided to the SMSM, that Turnbull had been offered "magnificent" personal terms and which were supposedly better than what Virgil Van Dijk was on originally. All very embarrassing and all very irrelevant.

    There should have been dignified silence from CFC until the player had actually signed a contract, IMO.


    I'm not sure about a helpful leak stevie Celtic had already posted it on their twitter account. Imo Celtic have played it correctly the guy is a 19yr old kid who to date has had a 6 month career at Motherwell and was offered a 10 fold increase in wages. His agent who is also the agent for stuart armstrong and ryan christie will already know the wage structure at Parkhead so is trying to leverage a higher wage than that of a lot of the established first team players. keeping that in mind how long would it have been before he was whispering in the ear of christie about a pay rise. Celtic have a wage structure and if they are not willing to break that for a kid who has potential nothing more he may go on to be great he could also get a career threatening injury in his next game.So much better to get out in front here by laying the blame for this at the feet of those who are to blame if Celtic had waited and he had signed elsewhere Peter Lawwell would be getting it in the neck. I have noted already this morning that the player and his team are now saying it's not really about money but about who will progress his career better.If it is not the fault of the club then all clubs should be doing the same.Already it is being compared to the mcginn saga of last season however Hibs were never going to sell him to Celtic so long as Petrie had anything to do with it.

    Just my opinion.
