  1. Nice one. Always a skelper of the cheats. Has been BRILLIANT for Celtic. But sadly things happen. Nobody knows the full story. But I am sure it will come out. We are all hearing rumours, So until we know, its guesswork.

    All the best for the future Alan..Hail Hail

    • Yeah, I don’t really see the point in speculating until we now what’s happened for sure. It’s not going to get anyone anywhere.

      As for Alan, he was a great player, and he deserves credit for that.

  2. A player you could always rely on for the big games. Brilliant left sided player and coach. Good luck for the future Alan.
