Scottish Football podcast: Scotland can’t keep changing managers, says Kris Boyd

MotherwellWalker: “It’s a big surprise to see Motherwell struggling badly. I look at the individuals, especially from middle to front. I know they’ve lost Turnbull but when you’ve got Chris Long, Tony Watt, Callum Lang, Jordan White, Jake Hastie, that’s a number of good options; you’d think they’d be much more of a threat. The […]

Serge Ibaka unsure whether he’ll play in Raptors-Celtics Game 6

An Appreciation For Daniel Theis, The Unsung Hero Of The Boston Celtics

Midway through the opening frame, Theis found himself on Kyle Lowry on the three-point line. Lowry is as crafty as they come, and threw a trio of upfakes at Theis, hoping to get the Celtics big man in the air and a trip to the free throw line. Theis didn’t bite on any of those […]

Celtic surge to Old Firm win over Rangers thanks to Moussa Dembélé hat-trick

“I spoke about Jock Stein in my team talk,” Rodgers said. “It was primarily about the guy looking down, the man who set the tone for this club, the template. Front foot, aggressive, no fear and when things go against you have that mentality to bounce back. We said that if he is looking down […]
