Scotland captain Andy Robertson won the Champions League with Liverpool at the weekend. You may have noticed but more about that later. Sadly football supporters up and down the country were more intent on continuing their petty Old Firm squabbles. First up was Stephen Johnstone, Ardentinny, who said: ” Neil Lennon stated that he is going to steer Celtic to nine and then 10-in-a-row. “Lenny has more chance of steering the Waverley down the River Clyde. “Celtic have lost their vital spark and they limped over the line this season and it does not bode well for the future.”
Ian Semple, Ayr, said: “Celtic have made a cheap managerial appointment in Lennon and that fills all the Rangers supporters with hope for next season. “I don’t see Peter Lawwell arming Lennon to the teeth with funds in the summer and Rangers beat Celtic handsomely twice in the two games at Ibrox last season. “I think Rangers can stop nine never mind 10-in-a-row.”

And James Henderson, Wishaw, said: “It is time for the Celtic board to flex their significant financial muscle and blow Rangers out of the water for the next two seasons and give Lennon exactly what he wants. “History beckons and the club are tantalisingly close to 10-in-a-row and the supporters won’t put up with falling at the final hurdle.” Bud Hay, Dumfries, added: “Now that the dust has settled on Celtic’s ‘Treble-Treble’ we are now going for the Quadruple Treble under Lennon. “No doubt Rangers fans will be boasting about stopping it just as they did last season. “It didn’t work then and it won’t work now.”

Gordon Ashley, Ayr, said: “With Celtic being the first team in world football to complete a ‘Treble-Treble’ – which also contained a world first invincible treble – surely that achievement should be honoured by the SFA by naming the Celtic end at Hampden Park the ‘Treble-Treble’ stand.” Christopher Currie, Stevenston, e-mailed: “Given the latest rationale from the SFA about the Jon Flanagan issue then the organisation are duty bound to come out right now and tell all clubs- not just Rangers – what is acceptable and what is not for the very first game of the new season.” Peter Hunter, Glasgow, rang in to have a pop at caller Joe McMenaman who claimed Scott Brown had more medals than Rangers legends John Greig, Terry Butcher and Richard Gough put together. Peter said: “Joe really should do his homework on this one. “He stated Broonie had won more medals than the Rangers trio combined. “Brown has 19 whereas the others have a total of 41. “So the Celtic skipper doesn’t even come close.”
There were some general calls on the Champions League showpiece. Up first was Peter Todd, Alloa, who said: “Scottish Football is not as bad a product as people make out. “The Tottenham v Liverpool Champions League final was one of the worst in living memory and that was supposedly between two of the best clubs from the so-called greatest league in the world. “English pundits should stop knocking our game as their own product is only in good shape because of the sums of money involved.” Dave Rooke, emailed: “I couldn’t help feeling embarrassed for the Rangers fans at the end of the Champions League final when the cameras picked up Steven Gerrard’s celebrations with the Liverpool supporters. “For a moment I thought Gerrard was Jurgen Klopp’s right hand man.”
We saved the best call until last. Irate Liverpool fan Tomas Marshall, emailed in to say: “Liverpool win the Champions League and all we are hearing about is Robertson. “One Scottish player? “Don’t hijack our triumph as your own club Celtic couldn’t even manage through qualifying rounds and this success is for English football not Scottish. “You probably won’t print this.” We will print it Tomas but we are also very proud of what Robertson has achieved and we will shout it from the rooftops. Well done our Andy.
Will Celtic’s treble Treble feat ever be equalled?
