Self-explanatory thread title. Wouldn't begrudge him a move if we got decent cash, possibly a player coming our way (loan or permanent*) and he got to play european football. The scottish league is horse shit though.


*Simon Ferry, Scott Cuthbert and a couple of others have done well out on loan from Celtic this season.

The article says we are to be in administration for the forseeable future. Do they know something we don't? In my eyes any player who leaves an English side in the top two divisions to play their trade in the SPL shows a lack of ambition. If I were Ambrose I would opt to play for QPR over Palace any day of the week.

But the obvious counter-argument is playing for Palace/QPR in front of 17,000 at home, and going to possibly Swindon and Scunthorpe away, as opposed to playing in front of 55k, in Old Firm derbies and in the Champions League.


Not that I totally agree with that.

They very occassionally get past the group stages which are poor games with minimal turnouts. Furthermore there is not gaurentee of a Champions League football with Celtic having to get through their preliminary rounds. Ok the attendances are less but it must be noted that QPR, and dare I say it Palace, could be pushing for a place in the EPL which, as we all know, gains far more exposure.

It depends on how far one has the ability to see into the future ;)

I cannot see how we will be in admin in August (to be honest July actually). A deal will have been done or we will be liquidated.

Mirror and Mail football stories are usually a pile of old bollix don't know why people bother posting them!

Hopefully the deal will go through soon as I'm sure we shall have to put up with all the speculation for a while yet if it doesn't.......

Why would Ambrose want to play non league football?

and going to possibly Swindon and Scunthorpe away,

I don't suppose playing at Hamilton or Kilmarnock is really any better?

Perhaps they can't "foresee" very far!

Yes, so Celtic are facing two qualifying rounds next season.



Celtic face Euro draw nightmare

Ronnie Cully and Alison McConnell


17 May 2010

Celtic's chances of reaching next season's Champions League Group Stage have already been hit by a massive blow.

Final day league results in Turkey saw the Parkhead club drop out of the seeds for the third qualifying round draw, which will take place on July 16 in Nyon.

Now, instead of facing teams of the calibre of AA Gent from, Belgium, PAOK Saloniki from Greece, Young Boys of Berne, Turkey's Bursaspor or Unirea Urziceni, who won at Ibrox last season, Celtic stand to be drawn against against Zenit St Petersburg, Ajax, Fenerbahce or Dinamo Kiev, with Sporting Braga or Steaua Bucharest, who can still sneak in to the seeded pot, making up the fifth possible opponent.

The ties will take place on July 27/28 and August 3/4, with the Emirates Cup played in the weekend between the matches.

If Celtic are drawn to play in either St Petersburg or Kiev, it will pose huge logistical problems for the team and their supporters, not to mention a severe test for the new manager.
