    Some news about the Celtic Nation.

    The leader of the Nation is a man by the name of Frank Lynch who used to run the Apollo in Glasgow and is now based in America where he runs the Cactus Car Wash.

    One of his advisers is Sandy Moffat, the Edinburgh based solicitor who not so long ago wanted to merge Clydebank (where he was chairman) with Carlisle and play the merged club in the Scottish League out of Brunton Park.

    Moffat is an interesting man with interesting friends. One of his connections is David Low, the Glasgow financial adviser who mastermined the hostile takeover of Glasgow Celtic by Fergus McCann in 1994.

    Despite the Rangers/Bury experience, it can surely only be a co-incidence that a nondescript club in Carlisle has changed its name to CELTIC Nation.

    Well I would rather he left now than 10 games into the season. Sounded a great player, but then so did the midfielders who signed last pre-season and left one by one!

    This Celtic Nation (what a bizarre name for a club based in Carlisle!), appear to be signing loads of players of more or less Conferaance level and yet they play in Northern League Div 2 (i.e. Level 7) Shocked Presumably shed loads of money are involved. Was Gate under contrsct, and if so will the famous Celtic Nation be paying us a transfer fee? I suspect not.

    As is implied this is either owners trying to 'do a Fleetwood', or engineer a move into the Scottish league.

    I suspect that Gate was signed on a non-contract basis, like most players.

    I cant find too much info on this Celtic Nation though.
