Celtic’s well publicised move for Korean international Cho gue-Sung has been the subject of much speculation over the last seven days or so.
After impressive performances in the Qatar World Cup, gue-Sung looks like he could be on the move with Celtic leading the chase to grab his signature.
With Giakoumakis future in doubt, it looks like Ange could be hedging his bets with a move for the hitman and it seems that BT Sports pundit, Allan Hutton, gives his seal of approval.
Speaking to Football Insider, Hutton said, “I have watched his games at the World Cup, I think he is a real threat. He is a presence up front. He is kind of like that Giakoumakis style player.
“The draw of coming to a league where you are winning trophies, playing European football, I think that is a massive draw in itself.
“The crowds that Celtic and Rangers pull in every week are massive, why would you not want to be part of that? At this moment in time Celtic are very strong so they are going in the right direction.
“The only way is up for them at this moment in time so that could be a big draw for a player like that.“
With the move being reported to cost any interested clubs €4m, the striker is well within Celtic’s budget and if he does have the prowess of Giakoumakis then Ange should take all steps to get him signed up.
- “He’s not good enough to be at Celtic.” – Mark Guidi’s unfair criticism of summer signingThe backlash from the Rangers defeat on Saturday has brought out all the moonhowlers from Ibrox. As they celebrate a nothing win in a Glasgow Derby, we will hopefully be celebrating a treble at the end of the season. It’s all about levels I suppose. And journalist Mark Guidi seems to have stooped to a new one by criticising Celtic defender Alexandro Bernabei. Speaking on The Go Radio Football Show, Giudi said, “Bernabei, I’ve seen enough for me to make a judgement. “At certain points you can pass an opinion and some and not a judgement, but I’ll make a judgement on Bernabei, for me, he’s not good enough to be at Celtic.” Very harsh considering Bernabei has hardly had enough consistent gametime to form any sort of real opinion. In fact, the Argentinian was being lauded after his wondergoal against Ross County just a few weeks ago. What is correct though is that the Celtic fans clearly love him. Their chants of Argentina at the end of every away day shows that they have taken the youngster to their hearts. I’m sure we’ll see a bit more of Bernabei over the coming weeks as Ange Postecoglou gives his fringe players a run out. Then and only then can we make a proper judgement on the player. Up next, Celtic and Rangers fans unite to criticise The Sun’s article on Liel Abada
- Celtic AND Rangers fans unite to defend Liel Abada from The Sun’s ludicrous journalismThe Sun, today, ran a headline that even the most clickbaity journalists would find embarrassing. Speaking to the Celtic winger after he was nominated for the PFA Young Playe lr if the Year Award, Abada said he was looking forward to the game at Ibrox and The Sun ran this headline: Now I get that headlines are designed to draw the reader in. Bloggers do it all the time, but this is just made up nonsense. Abada actually said, ” “Every time we play, the Celtic fans come to support us. It’s very good because it pushes us to get to the top. “For this game there are no fans so we need to do the job without them and be focused on doing the job. “In the games before, the atmosphere has been unbelievable. But for this one the best noise will be silence. If it is quiet we know we are doing well.” The headline itself was so bad that even those that didn’t click to read it knew it was garbage. Because speaking like this is not Celtic’s style. It never has been. And the Celtic and Rangers fans called it out:
Abada doesn’t strike me as the type to say this. Not his Style! Calling bull💩💩 on this 💩💩💩 rag of a newspaper!!Poor Journalism as per!! — Wee Fergs! 🍀 (@Michael38166809) May 12, 2023
as a rangers fan, not a chance he said this, postecoglu has these players at a high and respectable standard i’d believe “we have to silence the crowd” but not a big headed “i’ll silence the crowd myself” — liam 🇬🇧🇬🇧 (@LiamMc334) May 12, 2023https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
Not a chance he said that.— stephen (@stephenmunro1) May 12, 2023
Total misinformation which can only be expected from the rag not even trying anymore he never said anything even closely related to this. — Román Católico 🍀 (@FenianOcatholic) May 12, 2023https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

- Why Rangers will lose “alarming” refereeing stat this Saturday and Celtic will benefit
It’s certainly been a record breaking season for Celtic.
The club are set to become World Record holders for most amount of domestic trebles won. Record SPFL points tally is still up for grabs as is the most goals scored in the league.
Hell, even Callum McGregor is set to become the only player in the history of the game to have won FIVE domestic trebles.
But the club could, and probably will, break another record this Saturday afternoon. The longest ever streak by a team never to concede a penalty.
Rangers have incredibly went over 50 SPFL league matches without conceding a spot kick. And when you look at the amount of penalties that have been awarded since the introduction of VAR, that stat is all the more unbelievable.
But that will end on Saturday. For two reasons. One, PLZ Soccer are the first mainstream media outlet to have openly questioned the stat live on air.
In an unusual move, Peter Martin, Alan Rough, Alison McConnell and the squirming Tam McManus all openly discussed what they called an “alarming” statistic.
And why will Celtic get a penalty on Saturday? The authorities need to put an end to the rumour that they are now openly helping the Ibrox club.
And what better way to do it in a Glasgow Derby that has no real ramifications no matter which way the result goes.
Am I being a conspiracy theorist? Possibly. I wonder what the odds are on us getting a spot kick on Saturday?
