Whoever you are, I hope Celtic finds you and fires you.
At a time when people are losing their jobs left and right why should you keep yours?
I am referring to the person who leaked today’s Celtic line-up more than five hours ago.
Honestly, how many people have access to this stuff?
How many people can it possibly be?
Somebody in the Celtic camp wants to look smart by being “in the know.” They are doing our club harm.
When they are caught they will deserve everything they get.
I had that team-sheet when I got up this morning. I didn’t publish it and none of the other bloggers did either as far as I’m aware.
It would have been neat to get the exclusive, but it does the club no good whatsoever.
If the person responsible hasn’t thought of that yet, then they need some the point made to them in as forceful a way as possible.
This stuff happens with an infuriating regularity.
There is a major leak at Lennoxtown or at Celtic Park and it is up to the people inside our club to plug it as soon as possible. It ought to be a key priority.
The team itself is interesting in that Forrest has been left out of the starting line-up.
This is overdue. I love the guy but he’s not at his best right now, and no player is in more need of a rest and a reminder that he can’t just walk into the side.
Every place should be fought for. Nobody can get a free pass, and there’s a suspicion that he’s been cruising too long.
Frimpong is back at right back.
The central defence is Jullien and Bitton once more.
One presumes that Ryan Christie will be playing wide right.
Ollie Ntcham is the surprise inclusion; Forrest dropping out gives us the chance to play him, and we’ve taken it.
Overall, it’s a good team with a strong bench, which includes the kid Harper today. There’s a lot to be pleased about.
Except for the fact a lot of us knew the team this morning, which considering there’s still an hour to go until kick-off is absolutely shocking.
Sort that stuff out, Celtic.
Plug this leak, before it does us real damage. Those who think it’s a gas to pull this should consider that we were maybe looking to spring a wee surprise on United today with some of those changes.
If that was the plan, someone inside our own walls wrecked it.
And that is just unacceptable.
