Could someone explain how not guilty was correct? I hate to be an arse, but they were heard singing the sectarian songs.

Guy from UEFA says Rangers got off light because of recent efforts to eradicate the problems too, so isnt that a victory in a way, even if found guilty?

nah. even if glasgow gets it (no chance of that i would say), there's at least one other location 'approved' for it in glasgow. down at glasgow harbour i think.

i'm not sure which is up for it now, maybe all of them

UEFA's first judgement was "sectaranism is a Scottish social problem" which they didnt really want to get involved in cause it's our problem (which it basically is)

as you mentioned there has been stuff done by Rangers to eridicate problems, but in my opinion it's a disease that will never die - so one of us will get caught and done in the near future.

As much as I hate these sort of debates as they usually go for ages, stopping this sort of behaviour must start with education cause people who are at Ibrox/Parkhead drum it into their kids then they grow up and drum it into their kids and so on - and dont tell me Celtic are innocent in this, we are both in this together unfortunately icon13.gif

fans were heard singing the songs but UEFA didnt want to get involved, but the Austrian decided to put his face in and we got done for more cash, but not the closed stand that he was hoping for

First thing i would do is get rid of Roman Catholic schools. It's a disgrace that in this day and age children are not educated together because of their religion.

Im about to leave my RC school tomorrow, and as I leave, theres just as much muslims, protestants,hindus as there is catholics. School has won awards for it too.

I still agree though, it should be changed, but its nowhere near the biggest thing on the agenda.

Aye, damn apartheid schooling icon_mad.gif that's only ever a problem in Scotland and Northern Ireland with a select band of people.

Nothing stopping you sending your children there.

I said yesterday about some fans having short memories when it comes to Lovenkrands, I take it all back Lovenkrands has got off lightly compared to some of the stuff Stefan has been exposed too for having the audacity to fall of a bike.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> NAC Breda's Australian defender Tony Vidmar has announced his retirement from football due to a heart complaint.

The 35-year-old's hopes of heading to the World Cup receded when tests on a rib injury unearthed a heart problem.

Vidmar reluctantly confirmed he would not be heading to Germany earlier in the month and he has now been forced to hang up his boots, having been informed he needs to undergo surgery on his heart.

The defender made his announcement at an emotional press conference in his native land.

"Six months ago I was on the top of the world and now my world has collapsed," said an emotional Vidmar.

"To go to the World Cup had always been my goal."

and FF was a mongfest yesterday with the two subjects being "the UEFA fine being the start of our extinction, Celtic taking over the world" and "Klos should be booted out for being on a bike, he's not a legend and never has been" icon14.gif

possibly most of them are more paranoid than Celtic fans, but it's still an interesting read icon_wink.gif

FF is a joke, the day Celtic got beat by Hearts and when Lovenkrands signed for Schalke were cringeworthy. Some of these people lack real lives.

The "shared campuses" are an absolute joke, as they do nothing but perpretrate division.

As for the UEFA verdict, I always took the point of view that the chanting wasn't directed at anyone - had we made monkey noises at Senna, then we'd rightfully have been hammered for racist chanting. However, our songsheet is a bit more ambiguous, as UEFA initially rightly saw the singing of those songs as something that's been ingrained in Scottish culture for decades, as opposed to being directed specifically at any Catholics on the playing field.

It's opened a huge can of worms anyway - I fully expect Celtic to be hammered once the "away support" makes their voices heard next season.

Our singing isnt 'aimed' at anyone either, so Id expect you to be fully against UEFA taking action against any singing that occurs next season for both teams?

The Rangers fans on Follow Follow are just as bad as the fans of other teams who spam on it.

Oh and get rid of Catholic schools? Why? They do nothing wrong. All that is different in them schools is RE.

Who hit the bar/post in the return leg?

For some reason I'm convinced it was Vidmar.

Watching that video reminds me of what an awesome we had under Advocaat. No room even for big Jorg in that starting 11.

My biggest hope for Le Guen is that we can play football as well as Advocaat's team managed at times - remember the 4-0 derby win at Ibrox ? Just magnificent.

I long to see football played like that again at ibrox, and to be fair in Ecks first full season, when we played a 4-3-3 with de Boer and Fergie and Mikel in the midfield, and a front 3 of Caniggia, Mols and Lovenkrands saw us play some great stuff.

Cameroon international Achille Emana has confirmed he is close to joining Portsmouth.

The 23-year-old has been scouted closely by Pompey in recent weeks and manager Harry Redknapp made a personal check on him earlier this month.

The likes of Arsenal and Everton have both monitored Emana's progress over the past year, but Pompey have now made their move to land the highly-rated Toulouse midfielder.

Emana admits a move to Fratton Park appeals and he is hopeful a deal can be done.

We were linked to Emana last week as an alternative to the pricey Zakora.

Don't rule out the PLG factor just yet.

Plus, I'd say that he's more likely to be playing in the Champions League if he's at us for the next 3 seasons as opposed to either Spurs or West Ham.
