004 becoming 007

Ryan beware lol hehehe

Anyway, as long as Celtic play Hartley and Robson in the centre of midfield, I think they'll win. I'm going for 2-0 Celtic if they are played in the centre.

I think they'll outclass Rangers in all honesty. Rangers only have about 2 good players.

I don't think Celtic will win it this year. Rangers will do it IMO.

Something about Celtic just worries me....maybe Strachen. They were very lucky
last season......had Smith been at Ibrox all year, they'd have done it IMO.

Will be an interesting SPL this time round...hope Celtic win though! :eek:

Motherwell 2-4 Celtic

Celtic: Boruc, Wilson, Caldwell, McManus, Naylor, Robson, Crosas (Nakamura 80),
Scott Brown, Maloney, Samaras, McDonald (Sheridan 86).
Subs Not Used: Mark Brown, McGeady, Loovens, Donati, Caddis.

Booked: McDonald, Robson, Samaras.

Goals: Maloney 5, Samaras 9, McDonald 24, Samaras 42.

Samaras is a revelation at Celtic. He seems to score in every game.

Rangers also won as did Hamilton, Falkirk, Hibs and St. Mirren.

Aberdeen 2-1 :eek:
what a lovely freekick by mulgrew
this player is class young prospect what a left back

he scored the first goal which was completely IMMENSE

what a match what a comeback by Celtic in the 90 minute by Veenegor and then Aberdeen were about to score by a one on one

great performance by Mcdonald

McGeady was decent when he came in and i think he should be dropped for Pat McCourt who i can't wait to see him playing :)

Smith Admits Celtic Are The Benchmark

Rangers boss Walter Smith is wary despite his side's impressive start to the SPL season, insisting that the league leaders will be chasing Celtic all season, regardless of league positions...

Admitting that your rival manager's team is far superior - it's probably the most utilised mind-game in the history of Old Firm football.

Martin O'Neill was particularly fond of the tactic during his time as Celtic gaffer, frequently harping on that his side could only hope to emulate theit bitter rivals, even if they were steaming ahead at the top of the league.

An utterance designed to take the pressure off, it's usually also a good indicator that things are, in fact, going extremely well.

Now, Walter Smith has insisted that his side, despite sitting atop the SPL pile and having won the first Old Firm derby of the season comfortably, are still playing catch-up with the Hoops.

Still, few will blame him for being a tad cautious folowing Celtic's miracle title comeback last season.

The wily gaffer said: “We showed last season that we were capable of mounting a better challenge.

“But we still have to show we can keep the form going from week to week. Celtic have shown they have the capability to do that.

“They have set the standards and we have to make sure we continue to play in the manner we have done.

“We showed it to a degree last season, until a bit of fixture congestion gave us a problem.â€

Smith, of course, won't have a fixture pile-up this season, as his Gers are already out of Europe, making the title quest all the more crucial.
