OK after the disappointment of not getting Scotland to the final of EURO2008 I have decided to manage Celtic again but for the first time with the new patch.

********​

This is my squad as I started the game. There will be changes made to it. The players seen here are ones who will likely be used as first team players throughout the season, some will be sold though. Notably Varga and Camara.



I have a good budget to work on and I intend to make it work.

I want the SPL this season. Thats my aim.

Getting into the ECL group stages will be a bonus.

Ray Clarke joins Celtic scouting team.



Compensation of £150k was paid to Newcastle but I am more than confident that he will be a good asset to the club.

Celtic sign Irish full back

Celtic have snapped up Steven Finnan on a years loan deal from Liverpool.

Celtic will pay 50% of his wages during his time in Glasgow.

I feel I needed extra depth at this position for the long season ahead.

Celtic make it difficult for themselves. I think I will take the game to them in the second leg though and get though!

Scottish Premier League - Day 3

Dunferline 1 - 3 Celtic
Beattie, Zurawski x 2
MOM - Beattie

Celtic make it 3/3 and stay top of the league.


Scottish Premier League - Day 4

Celtic 2 - 0 Motherwell
Beattie, Maloney
MOM - Boruc

In one of the most boring and slowest games I've ever witnessed Celtic were lucky to walk away with the points today. All thanks to Boruc in goal and some decisive finishing.
