E-TIMS REVIEW http://www.etims.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2557&Itemid=38 The author ridicules the "Old Firm bad as each other" myth which is propagated by...

From 'Thugs and Thieves' to the Chris Sutton witch-hunt, the apologists for the disgraceful treatment meted out to Lennon and McGeady, through to Extension-gate in 2008, no hack or media lickspittle escapes the author's derision. His synopsis of the 2008 Extension fiasco alone is unmissable reading for any Celtic supporter.

At nearly 400 pages of insightful and merciless ridiculing of "the Laptop Loyal" this is a must read for Celtic fans everywhere.< Less
