Personnel will change at both clubs before next season and the Celtic manager may not be the same, but it can’t do Rangers any harm, that’s for sure.

Let’s find out… Does Carla Connor go to prison in Coronation Street? Not as far as we know, but following the death she’s told there could be a case for manslaughter because she knew the roof was unsafe and she has to give a statement to the police. It might be hard to pin on her though because no one was actually supposed to be in the factory at the time of the collapse. The workers were in there to protest about their jobs, which Carla has actually been trying to save. Is she REALLY responsible? Carla will blame herself and the guilt will send her spiralling into a breakdown as the events of the last 12 months all catch up with her. She should have listened to Gary Windass when he told her the … [Read more...] about Does Carla Connor go to prison in Coronation Street after the factory roof collapse, is she REALLY responsible and does anyone else know?
