The papers are dying out, in terms of sales of their paper edition at least. Perhaps they are working their way through the last generation of paper buyers. The Sunday Post for instance has traditionally an older demographic and is dropping fast. They are moving online - the Record have set up another site Football Scotland and this is an indication of the way things will go.
The early Celtic sites have dropped off in terms of what they once were. Probably because of the way things have changed online since when these sites started. The Celtic supporter space is significant and the media companies- newspapers and the click bait sites will all be active in trying to get a share of this. They will be doing the same at all other big clubs too.
It's fair to say then that Celtic supports are moving towards 'Celtic' created content without the previous bias. Granted it's a minefield to walk through. What about general Scottish football sites beyond the club?. 'Talkin baws' or 'talk from the terrace' . Worth the time or infiltrated by The Record etc?

That's good to hear. It's difficult now isn't it? For Celtic content you can make your mind up, but beyond that? It's hard. I'd no idea Football Scotland was a record spilt off until a cpuple of months ago. If you are reading about the national team or the Scottish game in general beyond Celtic. Who do you trust?

On the subject of trust, I mentioned that I met Auldheid a few weeks ago for an update on Res12. I supported him and the other guys on this by organising the crowd funding to pay the lawyer’s Bills and paying for the newspaper advert in a Swiss newspaper that finally got the SFA to speak as the ad conveniently appeared on the day of their AgM. There were ads in Guardian and Private Eye both pulled and the Herald pushed hard for the ad booking ( it wasn’t going to happen anyway) then called to say they would not carry an ad about Res 12. Funny handshakes or something funny spiked this. All the money was paid up front - I got it back and it went to Fund a Mary’s Meals school kitchen in Malawi. Point for Auldheid was he made a mistake on running everything through controlled Celtic media - Celtic’s Record on Res 12 is pretty terrible is it not?

This story is still prevelant ,calico buzz,Twitter in Italy, a football type forum ,say that he is available on a bosman ,his contract has expired,!youth ranks at Roma,then went to Lecce,before going to Genoa,where he had the most promising part of career,was handed senior international debut with the Azzuri,under Antonio Conte,played 5 times in 2015,his form led to a €20m move to Milan,did not end well ,he rated by Gattuso,remember him,(hun),so is he a viable player at the end of the day ,what you think ,hh

Yes it is...
This is crazy. I'd expect this subterfuge in the upper echelons of national politics and the young bugger who ran the Trump/Kim Darroch story being manipulated but at a Celtic level naively I guess I'd have expected better.

Hats off to Aulheid for his persistence he was on the case in the early days of the rangers tax case blog and never let go

The clubs response shocked at first but not anymore ,when they kicked it into the long grass the writing was on the wall

Sit on our hands and it will go away ,and the more we ignore it the more people will want to just move on

The emails published a few years ago between Lawwell and the SFA was just a smoke screen , seen to be doing something but do very little

Their must be a way the shareholders RES 12 guys could take this to CAS or can the club block that

Last snippet i heard was Aulheid saying he wasn't happy at the AGM

So maybe the Res 12 is losing momentum
