Was hoping for Hearts doing something tonight, was looking good at 1-1, but Celtic are just too strong at the moment.
Good performance from Rangers tonight. Raskin and Cantwell are good signings. Team looking much fitter. Morelos is definitely on the way out.

Edit... hibs tv is pants. Cut out a few times and zero before game or analysis at half time.

3 very good goals from Celtic tonight, Haksabanovc's in particular was a peach. Hearts goal wasn't bad either.

Like the fact that Celtic don't panic when they go a goal down, they just keep playing their football in the belief that goals will come.

Mooy has been a great signing, total quality. Got to laugh that he was training with Rangers as a free agent, but Ange stepped in and pinched him from under their noses.

Is that right about Mooy? Was Gio in charge then?

Morelos and Kent are obviously going to go for heehaw in the summer. Wasn't that long ago we were being told they would go for 15-20m apiece. Should have cashed in while you could.

Should have taken a decent offer for Morelos. Kent was excellent tonight, I would be keen to see him stay.

I have huge respect for Ange and what he has done at Celtic. Obviously a great coach and a decent person
How long will he stick around?
Personally, I think he'll be in England next season.

Who knows? He's been a brilliant signing, we were a total basket case under Lennon. He has completely rebuilt the team without spending a fortune in net terms and got us playing great football. Certainly the best Celtic team since MON.

He was totally derided when he was appointed, I remember Hugh Kevin's saying ANGE stood for absolutely not good enough. Kris Boyd had some fantastic words of wisdom as well, I'll see if I can dig them out.

Celtic have spend way more than Rangers since Ange arrived.
Don't think posting what a mediocre player for Rangers said adds to any discussion.

ANGE POSTECOGLOU has no authority at Celtic, no backing, no support from the board — and virtually no chance of being successful.

Unless things change, there’s no point in him being there.

Right now, if I was him I’d pack my bags and go.

Postecoglou might as well hand in his resignation and take himself back to Australia.

But with Postecoglou, he’s got to be wondering if taking this job was worth the hassle.

He didn’t have the first idea when he arrived. He can say all the right things about Celtic being a massive club . . . blah blah blah.

As if that wasn’t scripted.

But he didn’t know the first thing about life at Celtic and his eyes will have been opened now.
