Been after Clangers for a while, but apparently not going to get him while Aberdeen are still in Europe. Looking forward to seeing him in Paisley Friday morning then.

Actually on his day he's a decent goalie. He's just far too prone to silly mistakes to be a 1st choice for a team looking to compete at the top end of the SPL. In the Championship he might well be a stand-out. He's as good as Cammy Bell or Jamie MacDonald or a whole host of other keepers that do the rounds.

Fc Astana won at home against Helsinki team in Champions league, and reached the playoff. They may face Celtic in the next round as both are coming through the Champions route.

First leg was finished 0-0.
But yesterday Astana fell behind 2 goals down in the opening minutes. But they overcame with 3-2, and again had man sent off. Helsinki scored one from penalty spot, and it was looking like Astana would be out. But they scored in the last minute to make it 4-3. Amazing result.

It's an interesting bunch of opponents Celtic could face. Maccabi Tel Aviv, Astana, Malmo, Skenderbeu and Partizan Belgrade.

Completely no idea about the standard of any of them, although I'd have thought they would start as favourites against any of them. I'd guess they'd probably want the Albanians if they could choose.

Tel Aviv would be an interesting one, Celtic supporters still wave Palestinian flags?

Huge disappointment last night. Aberdeen looked classy in possession but couldn't create enough chances. Poor crossing and general final third play.

Conceded a really soft goal against a team that looked a shadow of the side from last week.

Great goal from Kenny MacLean to level things and could have snatched an aggregate equaliser with a header right at the end.

After they scored the Kazakhs really started acting the cunt with fake injuries and time wasting so they didn't make any friends.

There was one point when I though Rooney was going to score from a give them the ball back throw in after another fake injury. I wish he had.

Yeah, shitty round all in all. A lot of my favourite went teams out, Vaduz on away goals, Copenhagen on away goals after a woeful performance, Irony Kiryat Shimona rather comprehendsively. Suprised to see both West Ham and Sampdoria crash out, although West Ham went very close in the last round. Somebody's going to need a very lucky draw for there to be any Danish teams in the group stage.

Fc Kairat Almaty lost to Bordeaux by 1-0. Next match will in Almaty.

Meanwhile in UCL, Fc Astana beat Apoel Nicosia at home by 1-0. So, if they keep the score or at least get a draw, they become the first Kazakh club to reach the group stages of CL.

Sorry for off topic. Astana made it through the group stages of UCL. First Kazakh team to do that.

Unlike Celtic who went out thanks to Malmo.

Think is the co-effecient! Now that Celtic are out of the champions league Scotland will fall from 20somethingth to 20somethingth. And all the SPL clubs won't get some cash which they'll use to pull further ahead of championship clubs. And we won't get to see the best support in the world picking up fine after fine on the biggest stage of club football. :smt117

Congratulations!

More exciting to hear about this than about Scottish football anyway. :wink:

Cup-winners start in the first qualifying round instead of the second for associations below 25th spot. Scotland are currently 24th. Of the four associations just below them, all still have teams going in either the UCL or UEL.

Wasn't someone on here complaining that ICT got to start a round later than Aberdeen? Well I suppose it would sort that problem out.

Glossing over the national team's dreadful 1-0 defeat away to Georgia earlier today, there's at least something to cheer about in Scottish football as the whole Rangers pantomime continues to entertain. All the protagonists in the whole post-liquidation oldco/newco switcheroo seemed decidedly dodgy at the time and it would appear a police investigation has unearthed enough evidence to charge a bunch of them with serious organised crime offences.

Could be fun if the fraudulently obtained assets are returned to the original liquidators and sold off to raise money for the creditors that were stiffed by this crooked deal. All that Govan real estate and scrap silver should be enough to pay everyone off properly :-)

Craig Whyte and Charles Green charged after Rangers assets sale probe
2 September 2015

Former Rangers owner Craig Whyte and ex-chief executive Charles Green have been charged with conspiracy and involvement in serious organised crime.

David Whitehouse, from administrators Duff and Phelps, faces the same charges while Mr Green, 62, is also accused of fraud.

An angry crowd of fans shouted abuse as police escorted them from Glasgow Sheriff Court.

All three have been granted bail to return to court at a later date.

The three men were arrested on Tuesday after a police investigation into the sale of Rangers assets in 2012.

Another accountant, 51-year-old Paul Clark, who ran the club while it was in administration, has also been arrested.

Rangers was sold to Craig Whyte by its former owner Sir David Murray in 2011 for a nominal sum of £1.

But it entered administration in February 2012 after running out of cash.

Mr Whitehouse, 50, who worked at Duff and Phelps, was appointed as joint administrator, along with colleague Mr Clark.

When an agreement with creditors could not be struck to allow the club to exit administration, a sale of Rangers' assets to a consortium led by Mr Green was concluded.

He was at the helm when Rangers were allowed to join the Third Division but stepped down in 2013 following allegations that he was working in conjunction with Mr Whyte, 44.

Charles Green was shielded by police officers when he left by the front door of the court at around 15:30 BST on Wednesday.

A group of around 20 supporters shouted and tried to jostle the former Sheffield United chief executive.

Mr Whitehouse left the court to equally angry scenes around 20 minutes later.

Craig Whyte, 44, then made his exit just before 19:00 and was met by another angry crowd.

The trio have been charged under Section 28 of the Criminal Justice Licensing Act 2010, which covers serious organised crime offences. They have also been charged with conspiracy.

In addition Mr Green has been charged with fraud and also an offence under Section 190 of the Companies Act 2006.

They made no plea or declaration.

Boom. Not a bad start to the season, Aberdeen followed up a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Celtic at the weekend with a 1-0 home win over Hamilton this evening.

Early days yet, but if Celtic get their finger out then there might just be a title race this season.

7 games 7 wins and only conceded 2 goals. It's just like watching E-Land (for that month when they were good)
