JOHN Collins was firmly behind Ronny Deila’s decision to promote Callum McGregor to the Celtic first team during his two year stint as assistant manager at Parkhead and has had, despite the flak the youngster took off supporters early on, no cause to regret his decision since.
I think Celtic always have been serious about their transfer business despite what happened last summer. There was negativity there because of what happened with John McGinn, but people seemed to forget that they broke the transfer record as well.
THE outlook at Bolton Wanderers last season may have been almost exclusively bleak, with the club’s very existence under threat and then an eventual relegation into League One capping off a season of relentless turmoil. But there was one chink of light amid the gloom.
IT may have been 20 years ago this week that John Barnes was unveiled as the Celtic manager, but mention of the Englishman still provokes an extreme reaction among supporters of the Parkhead club to this day.
