Manager's Programme Notes

Personally, I believe we should stop everything for one week and think about what is going on in the world. If these things can happen in America's biggest cities then they can happen absolutely anywhere.

I have found it hard to concentrate on work and I am not sure we should carry on as normal. If it were up to me, every single appointment over the next few days would be cancelled. And one knock on effect of this week's dreadful events the States, is that negotiations to bring new players to the Club have been hindered with the problem in contacting other countries amidst all the turmoil, making neas impossible to bring anyone in before

However, whilst the European ties on Wednesday and Thursday were called off, it has been decided that football in this country should go ahead as planned.

this evening's match against Celtic. Whilst, I am happy with the players! have. I think last Saturday against St Johnston showed that we do need more options.

For example, we were without Beta Carina because of his suspension, and we did not have his kind of creative player to come in and that was a problem in that kind of game where we made the mistake of not scoring more goals when we were top, thus failing killing off the opposition

Up until the penalty award, however, I didn't think there was any problem for us.

But having said that our finishing was only one of a few things with which I was not happy.

We have to do better. If we do that then we will eliminate all the other problems you can have on the pitch And for the visit of Celtic this evening, with no new faces, we do have quite a few problems.

In addition to again being without Beta Carina due to his suspension, Juan Sara is almost certain to miss out after heading to Italy to have the injury he picked up at Ibrox checked out

Adding to our woes, there was a doubt about Fabians Caballero who picked up an injury in training this week. None-the-less, we always look

forward to a good game against Celtic. The big crowds these games attract help lift the players and whilst, I don't have as big a squad available as I would like, we still have the players who are capable of producing the quality of football required against a team of Celtic's calibre and hopefully after being so unlucky in the corresponding fixture last season we can reverse that result in our favour this time.
