And now Lennon is on Sportsound, trotting out the agreed mantra  ” ‘Rangers’ are back, the ‘Old Firm’ is back”- Celtic have to spend…”It’s amazing how one can go off people!Let him stick to talking about the club he is presently managing rather than be as  Barry Ferguson was when using ‘his’ press column not to talk up Clyde, but TRFC.
——————————————————————————————————————————
Last week I cited Neil Lennon as an example of a ‘Celtic Man’ who may be too busy to take the BBC Scotland Sportsound shilling as opposed to all the ‘Rangers Men’ filling the punditry panels that UTH continually moans about.

So I was surprised as anyone to hear a wee bit of Lennon on the show when driving about last night.

You would have thought some folks would be happy that UTH’s complaints had maybe been heard by the BBC and parity had been restored. Surely there can be no bigger Celtic Man than Lennon?

However pundit Lennon’s loves ‘Rangers’ being back. From what I recall Packie Bonnar most likely says the same. Pundits such as Mark Burchill and Andy Walker have recently defended strikers going down in the box in the Walkergate scandal.

As with Res 12 I think Celtic fans are just going to have realize that their club, its officials and ex-players have a different view of the game from the fans, on a whole range of issues.

Everyone ‘within the game’  is happy to have ‘Rangers back’ and the position isn’t going to change regardless of how many ‘Rangers  / Celtic men’ balance up the BBC punditry panels.

Note sure where the money goes. 
I suspect it will all go to Celtic as I believe it was an invitational competition as opposed to being some form of official representation on behalf of the SPFL.

The fee for Garner could rise to £1.7m based on adds on such as appearances while STV understands the Ibrox side will pay the initial £1.5m in two instalments, half this year and the remaining half next year.

Anyone else get the impression that if the deal does go ahead the figures are being inflated (to ‘Level 5’) to give the impression the club from Govan are spending big on the back of the Sinclair signing at Celtic.

(I noted with interest last night on the radio that that the figure of £1.5 to 2.5m worth of income may be heading towards Celtic Park from participation in the International Champions Cup, so that pays someones wages for a bit without any problems).

After a stream of Bears praising the new found sustainability the other week, surely paying this amount of money for a lower league player, who really only performed well in League One in recent years, is over the top and serious questions will now be asked by these financially astute fans?

If anyone has a twitter account can they just send a message to Regan along the lines of this is what happens when you bend over to assist the club from Govan.

When it suits them, they and their cohorts will shaft you into eternity.

Indeed. And that was my other thought.
Even if Mark Allen does a good job T”Rangers wouldn’t see any cash for any upcoming talent (internal or bought in)  for a god number of years.
To date a good few lads showing talent have been allowed to leave to keep the lights on.
At present the only prospect they have is McRorie who I think has stepped up and performed well when asked.He certainly has confidence and could develop into a decent centre back playing with the likes of Souttar for Scotland.

I am sure the thought will have crossed other’s minds but will say it anyway.
Celtics ‘free money’ from the VVD  transfer is more than T’Rangers stated  loan requirements to keep the lights on for the next year or two.
Thats the size of the gap between Celtic and the rest of us.

Thought that may be the case but was wondering if someone would be trying to get ahead of the game.
