On a different note. Beautiful dive by Ashley Young.

Curious how the footballing world over there is reacting to the death of that Italian player on the pitch?

There was a minute's silence before the game just now and again during the FA cup semi (which was a joint one for Hillsborough). Except some complete wankers didn't shut up for it (at the semi), singing their way through, which led to reactionary boos from everyone and the ref blowing it early, which is a shame.

Drogba's goal, though - POW!

Lennon has tantrum at ref, check. Ref accused of anti-Celtic/'personal' bias despite dodgy decisions pro-Celtic, check. Complaints about opposition not coming out to play, check. Grainy, blurred pic of allegedly clear red card offence does the rounds on Twitter, check.
I think the only thing we're missing now is the written complaint from Peter Lawwell to the SFA. Surely it can't be far behind.
I remember when Celtic lost games with dignity. It doesn't happen under this manager and this board...
Oddly, my Celtic-supporting friends on FB seemed to be blaming Neil Lennon for losing the game. They're obviously not 'passionate' enough.
For myself, I'll leave it at this: whatever else you can say about the match, the fact is that an equalising goal was awarded to Celtic when, indisputably, it should not have been. (Maybe the ref hates Paulo Sergio, too?) That makes playing the 'we wuz robbed' card kind of weak.

I don't think it came close to crossing the line and Terry bulldozed a group of players anyway. Just awful.

I honestly don't see how he's much of anything as a manager. He'd get absolutely shown up if he wasn't in charge of easily the most well-off club in the league (as his European record would appear to show, albeit so far a small stat pool) and a man of his temperament has no business managing in an atmosphere as volatile as an old firm club.
