    Kenny mentioned that he was sick which stopped him playing

    They have better tactical and technical training of young players, and tend not to run the legs off of them when they are young.

    McCarthy was knackered by the time he was 27.

    Came off the bench for Celtic today for the last 15 mins against Ross County. Looked quite good. It's strongly rumoured he had COVID a few weeks back hence the slow start to his Celtic career.

    Eh?

    He started against Livingston and was diabolical. Misplaced passes all over the place. Really really bad. Hopefully he's shaking off the ring rust after a lack of a pre season and having had COVID/

    McCarthy struggling with the intensity of Ange Postecoglou's football and wasn't a Postecoglou signing, or something like that.

    I can't believe they signed him, never mind that they gave him a four year deal. Well past his best, injury prone and doesn't fit the manager's system. Absolute madness.

    Inmense again for Céltic. It seems their greek coach told his teammates to look for a pass to James whenever he is available so the team played at his tempo. An assist for the third goal as well.

    It was Rogic who assisted the first (hard to see the number on jersey but it was 18, not 16). 'Jimbo's' assist for the first goal was a beaut though, threaded through the eye of a needle.

    Great pass ~ great control ~ great finish.

    Really? Where did you see that? Can't find any pass map for the game, so I don't know who made/received the most passes
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    His passing was erratic. He gave the ball away cheaply sometimes but also put in a couple of sublime passes one of which was an assist for the first goal. It's hard to tell if he's not on the same wavelength as the team, is still just really unfit/rusty or isn't really suited to playing in a side dominating possession that needs to sustain a high tempo. He was a lot better than his last appearance which was shocking.

    Celtic's defence was one very big hole. They attacked v well, btw, Leverkeusen's keeper was superb. Mad game.

    I've written him off in terms of the national side. I hope he has a good end to his career at Celtic.

    Tis kind of bizarre that he has not retired from international football with his injury record and his lack of being able to turn up for international squads ! I don’t suppose anyone would say a lot if he did.
