For the last nine years we have been faced with blog, after blog, after blog, written by those from the east end of Glasgow with a bizarre obsession for our accounts and financial status, the practise should stand them in good stead if Celtic’s latest figures are anything to go by.
Despite off-field “issues” Rangers are still coasting to the title and with Neil Lennon seemingly impervious to the sack and increasingly likely to be around next season, things are not going well for fans of the green and grey hoops.
Including the sale of Kieran Tierney, Celtic have seen a drop in profits of over £30million to record a loss of £6m and things are only going to get worse according to their Chairman, Ian Bankier.
We will also suffer but have at least managed to recoup some of the lost income through having no fans in Ibrox with a successful European campaign and have a squad that can cope with the sale of a couple of key assets thanks to the sterling efforts of Ross Wilson and Steven Gerrard.
Can Rangers dominate off the field now too?
With the tables turned, Gers fans took to Twitter to revel in the continued misery of their rivals, although don’t expect to see a raft of blogs from those of a Light Blue persuasion claiming that administration looms large over Parkhead!
Actually quite good of Celtic to release their accounts and statement on Lennon’s review to divert attention away from Rangers players having a gaff.

Skint FC 😂
Don’t worry, all their players want to leave so I’m sure they’ll raise some money in the summer. Edouard, Ajer, Christie, you name it they want out. Their team will be even worse next season.
Here we go 2 in a row 🇬🇧

Apparently the whispers are that Celtic accounts were actually based on estimates and they’re much worse than reported. Discussions with Administrators have taken place. Emergency contact with British government for grants also looked at. Not looking good for them. Oh well 🤷♂️😂😂

Is this the part in our journey where we start paying someone to pretend they have an inside source in the celtic boardroom and that admin is just around the corner, all the time?

I’m preparing a spreadsheet as we speak.

Not according to many who work in your field & many of the bloggers. Admin 2 has supposedly been coming for the last 9 years.
Celtic were miles ahead and could have, and should have been unassailable from the financial and competitive leads they had.

It’s a fun time to be a Rangers fan, isn’t it?!
