Does anyone remember what allegedly happened in the tunnel in the 2-0 win over Celtic in November 2004 with lovenkrands? Was he assaulted? I remember he said McNamara said he was going to have him in the tunnel after Thomson was sent off for sticking his head in peters face

Someone punched him and then another tired to do him in the tunnel.

A few of our squad jumped in but the club - like they always did back then - decided to forget about it and not report it. McLeish then subbed him at HT with a "dead leg"

Sutton and lennon basically acting like thugs that day! Chasing him down tunnel and throwing punches at PL!

While i have zero time for thompson, sutton or lennon lovenkrands behaviour that day was laffertyesque. I would have wanted a word with him as well.

bigger issue was that ugly little cu.t lennon throwing his weight around and, as usual, getting away with it.

Whilst lovenkrands was in the wrong, the behaviour of the beggars that day was shocking.

Considering the hassle to come out of the Lennon/McCoist incident. Three or four of the beggars should have been arrested.

Magnificent day, part 2 of the November hoop humbling.

Although we won came out feeling we really should have destroyed them by 5 or 6.

IIRC was this the game when Kamara kicked someone down by the west enclosure, guessing Vignal given the position, on the deck and got away with it?

Atmosphere was poisonous that day. I enjoyed it. That whole team made my blood boil.

Correct. Down at the Broomloan end in the first half not long after Chimpson was sent off.

Funnily enough, that's the first thing I thought of when I saw the thread.

Never really seen anything like that in a derby match. He spent the whole of the second half barely moving, then the clear, obvious deliberate red and trudged off the pitch looking satisfied that he was finished with the game. Bizarre display.

Didn't he handle the ball twice in that incident ?

He kicked out at Vignal just before half time. Despite the incident being right in front of the Assistant he was not shown any card.

He was however retrospectively banned for the incident. Novo was also banned after for a flick at McNamara (I think).

Have to say what Lovenkrands did to get Thompson sent off was one if the funniest things of all time. They were only annoyed we did it first before they did to us. I'm sure we don't want to see Rangers players doing that regularly but against them you have to fight fire with fire.

Douglas supposedly punched Moore in the tunnel at Parkhead in the 3-3 draw in 2002.

Funnily enough, Moore was also replaced at half time that day as well.

Peter took abuse constantly from Thompson through old firm games and in nite clubs in the city centre so this was just a bit of pay back.. Peter was attacked in tunnel by Sutton and McNamara couple others and bob Malcolm jumped in and they screamed play him in 2nd half and we breaking his legs. Mccliesh took him off..

The likes of Lennon and Thompson losing the plot because they were being physically bossed and outplayed by Hamed Namouchi. Alex Rae also turned in a superb performance and Boumsong had the cigars out.

Henri Camara should have been off after he tried to volley Vignal.

No, Douglas whacked Moore in the tunnel at the scum hut in Oct 2002 (3-3) with television cameras capturing the moment.

NO action was taken against him and that fat slag Derek Johnstone told us to let it go. It was one of those things that happen in the heat of the moment.

Simply would not have happened under Souness' watch.

Remember in McCoist's book he talks about an incident in the tunnel against Hearts during Johnston's first season(Doddie makes a dig at Johnston and all hell breaks loose)which results in everyone piling in and Souness telling the players if he finds out anyone was NOT involved then they would be fined :D

They lost the plot and their behaviour on and off the pitch was hideous. It was around this time the relations between both clubs began to get nasty. Martin O'Neill set the game back 20 years.

McNamara motioned to Lovenkrands that he was going to break his legs and wasn't punished for it. Talk about bringing the game into disrepute!

The worst of it was O'Neill deflecting all the blame onto us by claiming Lennon was racially abused for 90 minutes and the likes of Queersie buying it hook, line and sinker.

Lovenkrands was systematically targeted by O'Neill's thugs in several games. As well as those incidents already mentioned there was Lambert stepping on his Achilles tendon off the ball and Balde grabbing him in a headlock also off the ball. This was a back-handed tribute to his effectiveness against them.
He was vilified by the media for the Thompson incident (as was Lafferty over Mulgrew) by the same people who saw nothing amiss about TLB's play acting at Pittodrie or, further back, John McStay's Oscar winner in the Duncan Ferguson incident.
Hypocrisy, or bigotry?

It was literally right in front of him he couldn't have been any closer. He was already on a yellow for shoving Alex Rae on the back of the head before half time.

The linesman chose to ignore the kick to save him getting sent off it was cheating plain and simple. A disgraceful decision

Very, very important.

A turning point, in fact.

From this moment on Sellik and their apologists have played the 'racism' card, deliberately turning up the heat in a sectarian tribal conflict because they thought they could gain an advantage from it on and off the pitch.

And TBF to them, they have exploited that lie and wrung every available ounce out if it.

Lennon's behaviour, being arested in Newcastle, intimidation of a woman, spitting on a Rangers scarf, calling Rangers players and fans 'orange bastards' etc etc has simply been pushed aside in favour of the narrative where we are 'racists' because, er, umm, we don't like him.

That 'racism', incidentally, consisted of Rangers fans singing 'Lennon, Lennon, what's the score?' and 'Neil Lennon, you're a wanker'.

That was some game and the moment we realised we could go on and win the title.

When Martin O'Neill came in he signed a team of big, aggressive players who bullied their way to the first couple of league trophies. We were the team playing attractive football, but in 2004/05 we adopted their tactics a lot more to compete (we had been humiliated the season before), and this game was the result of us no longer letting them take the piss, and we got right under their skin!

Lovenkrands antics were embarrasing, but I didn't care that day.

Lovenkrands did make the most of it but given Chimpson ran 30 yards to square up to him then there he only had himself to blame.

Both, really.

Thomson ran, if I remember correctly, about twenty yards to confront PL. The incident had nothing to do with Thomson, he should have stayed where he was. He went right in PL's face. PL, not being the bravest man on the planet, while confronted with a thug, took avoiding action and feigned injury to get him out of the sutuation. Absolutely nothing wrong with that, he thought he was gonna get battered. Thomson face was twisted and tortured, and he was NOT gonna give PL some sweeties!
Thomsons face was even better when he saw the red card coming out, and of course the media, as usual, blamed PL not Thomson.

When you look back at it, it was a mental game.

People quite rightly talk about Sutton bizarrely chucking it but I thought tlb chucked it too.

He spent the last 20 minutes of the game practically begging the ref to red card him with his constant fouling and arguing.

I still can't believe a bigger fuss wasn't made about his bigoted outbust.

Funnily enough, that's the first thing I thought of when I saw the thread.

Never really seen anything like that in a derby match. He spent the whole of the second half barely moving, then the clear, obvious deliberate red and trudged off the pitch looking satisfied that he was finished with the game. Bizarre display.

Boumsong for all his later troubles was just too quick and too good for him. He couldn't handle it and worked his ticket off the field. Pretty shameful until you consider the outfit he was representing.

"I did my best to keep him on the pitch" was the quote from Stuart Dougal after the match..., he was still untouchable back then

ten years later there still doing their best to keep him on the pitch.

While i have zero time for thompson, sutton or lennon lovenkrands behaviour that day was laffertyesque. I would have wanted a word with him as well.

The difference:

Lafferty and Mulgrew went toe to toe and put their heads up to one another, and Lafferty did a bit of a shamefull fake.

Whether Lovenkrands faked it or not Thompson was being a thug and walked up to him accusing him of a foul that he hadn't done and then tapped him in the face with his head. Thompson was acting like a thug trying to intimidate our players and he paid the price, for the risk he took.

Two completely different situations.

From my memory Lovenkrands came back on after being treated for "injury" and was subbed off shortly afterwards. I remember the mutants acting like pricks in the tunnel but not much else, it's not exactly isolated as they used to behave that way whenever they lost against us.

Topped off when O'Neill grabbed Lennon in a headlock and marched him up to the Broomloan Rd Stand as some sort of conquering hero after the final whistle.

Have you seen my baseball?

Right in front of the linesman.

Who signalled to Vignal, who had just been studded in the bottom of his shin, to get up.

"We can't send any more of them off, it will cause a riot" Stunk of it.
