Episode 69 - Neil Lennon & The Treble Treble

Celtic have completed the treble treble. Three consecutive seasons of clean sweep success.It still sounds almost unbelievable, but The Grand Auld Podcast returns to discuss a momentous final at Hampden that not only delivered another trophy but... a new manager too.The appointment of Neil Lennon is a little more complicated than the pure joy of beating Hearts, but we tackle that topic in a big way too, getting to heart of our feelings on it all including the way the club announced the decision.Finally we look ahead to the start of next season with a rundown of how the UEFA Champions League qualifiers work this summer.This is our last normal episode of the season and we want to thank old and new listeners for giving us the audience to do this daft show - we really love it and we really appreciate you all.We'll be back next week for special end-of-season awards shows.You can follow us on Twitter @FritzAGrandAuld if you want to get in touch, have a great summer!--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/grandauldpodcast/message

Episode 67 - Turn The Page

There's so much going on at Celtic, both positive and negative, but The Grand Auld Podcast has been a bit absent over the last two weeks for unavoidable off the mic reasons.However we arranged a daytime, midweek chat to discuss all the issues currently facing the club ahead of a massive few months.This episode is a bit looser and less structured compared to our usual fare but it's a good discussion about potential managers, recruitment, the challenge next season, Neil Lennon and a whole lot more besides.We hope you enjoy.We'll be back next week and you can follow us on Twitter @FritzAGrandAuld.Thanks for listening!--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/grandauldpodcast/message
