Among the many tributes paid to the Celtic coach, Tommy Burns, who died yesterday, aged 51, after a fight against skin cancer, the unlikeliest of them gave a measure of the esteem in which he was held across Scotland’s entire footballing family. Rangers scarves were among those laid at Parkhead in his honour, some by fans en route home from Wednesday’s Uefa Cup final defeat. As one fan said: “I’m Rangers through and through, but Tommy was a football man, and he’ll be missed".

The Celtic manager, Gordon Strachan, has said Scott Brown is not guaranteed a recall for Sunday's Old Firm game against Rangers despite the £4.4m midfielder being free from suspension.
Sunday 20 April 2008
Georgios Samaras sent Celtic back to the top of the Scottish Premier League for the first time since 5 January, as they followed up their win over Rangers last Wednesday with a nervous win that now puts them two points clear of their Old Firm rivals.
Friday 18 April 2008
From a neutral's point of view, Wednesday night's Old Firm derby – which Celtic won 2-1 with Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink's injury-time header – was an absolute treat, but Rangers will rue the collateral damage of a frenzied 95 minutes as much as the scoreline itself.
Wednesday 16 April 2008
Walter Smith says his 100 per cent record as the Rangers manager over Gordon Strachan's Celtic since he returned to Ibrox last year will have no bearing on tonight's Old Firm match at Celtic Park.
Sunday 06 April 2008
With friends like this, who needs enemies. Mark McGhee may have been close to Gordon Strachan for 30 years but that did not stop the Motherwell manager inflicting a fatal blow to his Celtic counterpart's ambitions of a third successive title. Simon Lappin's predatory first-half finish wrecked Celtic's home record and killed the champions' lingering hopes of catching Rangers, who now travel to Dundee United today in the knowledge that they have a six-point cushion and two games in hand.
Wednesday 02 April 2008
The Scotland manager George Burley claims it is "ridiculous" that Celtic fans are calling for the head of manager Gordon Strachan.
Sunday 30 March 2008

Thursday 27 March 2008
The Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc has cranked up the pressure ahead of Saturday's Old Firm match at Ibrox by claiming his side have improved since they won last season's Scottish Premier League title.
Thursday 28 February 2008
In the pursuit of Rangers that their season has developed into, Celtic are coming to rely on the diligence of their application. This was a performance without glamour or bold imagination, but enough purpose to be meaningful. They overcame Inverness through sheer perseverance.
Monday 11 February 2008
The Aberdeen manager, Jimmy Calderwood, parked his new Bus in the centre of his side's defence yesterday but it was the Glaswegian visitors to Pittodrie who proved far less penetrable and ran riot at the other end to add fresh impetus to the Scottish Premier League title race.
Sunday 03 February 2008
If the principle behind an influx of new recruits is to inspire a reaction from the squad, then Gordon Strachan's flurry of transfer activity was richly rewarded yesterday as Celtic swept Kilmarnock aside to reach the Scottish Cup quarter-finals.
Sunday 20 January 2008
Celtic responded to Gordon Strachan's demand to embrace the pressure of the title race by cutting the gap on Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premier League to a point, ahead of the leaders' trip to Inverness today.
Tuesday 15 January 2008

Sunday 30 December 2007
Celtic finished 2007 as they began it, out in front. The champions ensured they would remain two points ahead of Rangers in the SPL before Wednesday's key Old Firm derby. Celtic Park will be a far more raucous place then than it was here, but clinical finishing from Scott McDonald, Scott Brown and Aiden McGeady overcame the sedate atmosphere in the east end of Glasgow.
