After the Rebels had won, Low and McCann discovered that Celtic actually owned shares in RANGERS

THE CELTIC STAR told you on Friday, Brendan confirmed yesterday and it is being reported today. To re-cap on what Brendan had to repeat yesterday about the reports that Tom Rogic, who started yesterday at Aberdeen, has rejected a new contract.

“It will always be between the club and the players’ representatives, but he’s still got a year-and-a-half left here,” Brendan said.

“He’s been brilliant in my time here and we want to keep him.

“It will be ongoing with him and his representatives.”

When the reports broke from an Australian media on Friday afternoon The Celtic Star wrote THIS and later that night followed up the story with quotes from the manager that poured cold water on the Aussie claims. You can read that HERE.

Meanwhile Brendan also had a pop at that nasty little Aberdeen full-back Shay Logan, for smashing the ball against Celtic players while on the ground. But he was full of praise for his skipper as we reported after the match yesterday, HERE.

“It’s not a great challenge from the boy who got sent off. It was naughty,” Brendan said.

“Logan didn’t set the best example for young players when he twice tried to smash the ball at the player on the floor.

“Fortunately for Scott, he didn’t hurt him.

“Scott is a big-game player, especially in those moments. When it goes to 10 men he revels in it even more.

“Browny is a brilliant leader. He takes it, shrugs it off and gets back up again to dominate the game.”

Rodgers, as we reported yesterday, was also signing the praises of his two French forwards and of course Kieran Tierney who showed his commitment to the cause to get forward to score that brilliant counter attacking goal.

“Moussa is a big-game player. He comes alive in the big games,” Brendan said.

“It was a wonderful cross from James Forrest for the first goal and it was a great header at the back post.

“At the second, young Odsonne took a great touch from the clearance.

“Lots of players would just hook that on and give the ball away.

“He showed great composure to play it out and the speed of the four players breaking forward was great.

“Kieran won the race. He showed why he’s officially the quickest player in the squad and produced a wonderful finish.

“It was great desire from him – and all of them – to get there and finish with such power.”

Don’t miss the new podcast which is out today. The Celtic Star Podcast – A Celtic State of Mind this week features David Low and provides a remarkable insight into the take over from the old board by Fergus McCann. Low reveals what surprised him , Fergus and the other Rebels the most when they got control of the club – and what they found that the club owned.

Low and McCann actually discovered that Celtic owned shares in Rangers.

Given subsequent events, it’s just as well that they sold them pronto! David Low also provides an insight into how the Bank treated Celtic at the time, which pours cold water on one or two theories that we’ve all read over the past eventful five or six years regarding events across the city.

  1. KT the fastest player at the club? I thought Eduoard or Forrest might have been.

    Logan took a cheap shot at Brown. It was the frustration of a beaten man, a beaten team, a beaten city. Logan is a nark yeah but the circumstances of him becoming a nark are complicated.

    David Low was fantastic on the podcast, it compliments the Tom Grant one.
