End of season 11 see’s us finished in 14th place with 44 points in Division 4.
Since taking over in late October my record is P 21 W 7 D 8 L 6
We were lucky in the end as we suffered 3 successive defeats at the end of the season.
Well there have been so far a number of players going through the swing doors. 27 coming in and 25 going out. I cannot say that the quality has improved that much but I live in hope that 1 or 2 players may surprise me next season.
We have not many saleable internal players, as shown in the fact that only one player has had a rating rise while I have been here, and that was a youth player. Alario is my outstanding player in terms of an asset; I am determined to hold on to him for next season unless I get some very silly offer.
I will continue to try and bring in some youth prospects – currently 12 under 21 (includes 2 GK).
I think next season will be just if not more harder for this team and in reality Celtic will need a number of seasons (under any manager) to be any kind of promotion force.
Now for a few days break for the players, but not for me though.
