Season 2006 - 2007

"Fifteen minutes of madness...  "

Falkirk 3-1 ICT FC 30th December 2006

Caley Jags' John Rankin scored another scorcher today possibly better than his last, on Wednesday night, against Rangers. Unfortunately, for Caley Jags, Falkirk had already scored three, an Anthony Stokes' hat-trick. Stokes opened the scoring on 33 minutes after being put through by Russell Latapy. Then on 37 minutes Stokes got his second when he blasted the ball past Mark Brown. A simple tap in on 45 minutes completed his hat-trick. Falkirk had further chances in the second half but failed to increase their lead. Caley Jags played the second half with ten men after Ian Black picked up two cards during the interval. Gary McSwegan played the ball into the path of John Rankin on 90 minutes who then produced another unstoppable long range strike to give Caley Jags their only goal of the match.

Caley Jags manager Charlie Christie said, "It was a massive disappointment. Fifteen minutes of madness has cost us the game... we have one lapse in concentration and one good through ball and then we fall apart for fifteen minutes."John Hughes commenting on Stokes after the match said," "I'm thankful for him being up here in the first place and delighted with his goals. Fingers crossed we get the nod to keep him. I'd be happy to keep him." 30/12/06, 77 Photos

"It was a tremendous night...  "

ICT FC 2-1 Rangers 27th December 2006

For the second time this season Caley Jags found themselves taking three points from Rangers. Nacho Novo was first to score, from a penalty on 22 minutes. This followed Barry Ferguson being downed in the box after Roy McBain got too close to him. On 41 minutes Darren Dods leveled the score when he blasted the ball into the roof of the net when the Rangers' defence failed to clear their area. Caley Jags persistence paid off in the first minute of extra time after 90 minutes when John Rankin scored from 25 yards.

Ecstatic Manager Charlie Christie said, "It was a tremendous night as it is well documented that we have been on a bad run... We matched them toe-to-toe and we got a tremendous goal at the end to win it, so I'm delighted."Paul Le Guen reflected on his players' mental attitude, "I think it is a state of mind, we must be prepared to fight for every game... There was not as much commitment as there was in the win against Aberdeen at the weekend and that is very disappointing for us."

"We could've taken more responsibility ...  "

Dunfermline 0-0 ICT FC 23rd December 2006

No goals for Caley Jags or the Pars in their latest encounter. Not a great deal of goalmouth action but a hard fought game. Stevie Crawford was sent off when he picked up a second yellow card. Seven other bookings were handed out including Caley Jags' Grant Munro, Barry Wilson and Ian Black. Ian was substituted on 75 minutes presumably to ensure his availability in the next game, against Rangers. However, he didn't appear to appreciate the opportunity.

After the match Caley Jags Manager Charlie Christie said, " In the second half, we came onto a game and looked the more likely to score. We could've taken more responsibility and taken the ball into the box on occasions, but you can see that we're not on the best of runs at the moment." Pars' Stephen Kenny said: "I thought it was game that we could've won. We started brightly and Crawford and Gary Mason both had chances and looked like they were going to score..." 23/12/06, 83 Photos

"... today was really poor defending...  "

ICT FC 3-4 Kilmarnock 16th December 2006

Caley Jags welcomed the return of Darren Dods, back after his one match suspension. Dods marked his return by opening the scoring on 6 minutes. Kilmarnock replied on 29 minutes when Steven Naismith scored. This was followed by a goal on 35 minutes by Colin Nish which put Kilmarnock into the lead. Dods responded 4 minutes later to level the scoring. Then, in the final minutes of the half Grant Murray handled the ball resulting in a penalty to Caley Jags. Craig Dargo showed he was not put off by last weeks' effort when he scored from the spot on 45 minutes. Kilmarnock again brought the scores level when Nish scored his second on 49 minutes. Naismith then got his second of the afternoon when he scored from the spot after substitute Zander Sutherland fouled him in the box.

Manager Charlie Christie, remains disappointed in the team's inability to pick up points: "If you score three goals at home you expect to win the game... you can't afford to lose four goals at home... I have told them in no uncertain terms that today was really poor defending..."Jim Jefferies the Kilmarnock boss said, "I told the players at the break, if we want to challenge for the top half of the table, we had to come to places like this and get results... Credit to the players for taking everything on board and playing with the determination we have consistently seen over the last couple of seasons."

"... I expect more at this level...  "

Dundee United 3-1 ICT FC 9th December 2006

Caley Jags went into the lead on 15 minutes when Barry Wilson scored from a well executed free kick on the edge of the box, which left keeper Derek Stillie rooted to the spot. United equalised on 22 minutes with a Noel Hunt goal. Hunt scored a second on 65 minutes. David Roberson scored United's third goal on 78 minutes following a penetrating run and cut back by Hunt.

Caley Jags' manager Charlie Christie, disappointed for the second week on the trot, said: "The endeavour is not lacking. But, there is more to football than that and sometimes the guys were just happy to get the ball out of the area. I expect more at this level. It is time to stand up and be counted."United striker Noel Hunt said, " I should have had a hat-trick but Mark Brown had a great save from my header in the first half."

"... we need to be doing more in front of goal...  "

ICT FC 0-1 Motherwell 2nd December 2006

Caley Jags now go four games without scoring. Until the 90th minute it looked like they would share the points with a no score draw. However, just before extra time Darren Dods was booked for the second time during the match and was sent off. He had brought down Scott McDonald inside the box. Richie Foran converted the penalty and secured the three points for Motherwell.

Disappointed Caley Jags' manager Charlie Christie said: "It's just not happening for us at the moment and we are unable to test goalkeepers enough and we need to be doing more in front of goal."Maurice Malpas said "It was good to add to last week's win but it was never a classic today and I though it was going to end 0-0 but we got the break in the end."

"... we expected a hard game...  "

ICT FC 0-0 Hearts 25th November 2006

Caley Jags shared the points today after a goalless encounter with Hearts. After a strong start by Hearts, Caley Jags came more into the game and had a number of opportunities to score. Both keepers were on form and made a number of fine saves. A draw was seen as a fair reflection on the game.

Caley Jags manager Charlie Christie was delighted with the team's performance today: "...I think we showed great endeavour to go and win the game and for Inverness Caledonian Thistle to peg Heart of Midlothian back for long spells in the game especially in the second half was very pleasing... I was delighted with the full backs' contribution today... " Hearts' sporting director Alex Koslovski said: "... We are a little disappointed, but, maybe, a draw was fair... Inverness is a hard place to go to, so we expected a hard game."

Celtic 3-0 ICT FC 18th November 2006

Caley Jags made a fine start at Parkhead, but Celtic's winning streak continued. Caleyjags became the last of the SPL teams to be beaten as Celtic make it eleven wins out of their last eleven games. Under pressure from Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, Darren Dods put the ball over the line to score an own goal on 43 mins. Vennegoor of Hesselink then scored on 72 mins, from 12 yards, after collecting a cross from Paul Telfer. Celtic's third and final goal came on 85 mins when Jiri Jarosik headed home a Shaun Maloney corner.

Caley Jags manager Charlie Christie said: "I thought 3-0 was hash but we were up against the best team in the country. However, I was pleased with the chances we created and it was going well until Celtic took the lead just before the break. "Celtic manager Gordon Strachan was delighted with his team's performance, "A lot of things pleased me. Zurawski was excellent and Nakamura was brilliant. Inverness never made it easy but I can now think about Manchester United "

"... we got caught napping...  "

Hibernian 2-0 ICT FC 11th November 2006

Caley Jags failed to pick up a point for the first time since 26th August when their last visit to Edinburgh saw them beaten by Hearts. Both sides had their opportunities during the game with fine chances from Caley Jags' Craig Dargo, Graham Bayne, and Gary McSwegan all being denied by on form Hibs keeper Zbigniew Malkowski. Hibs substitute Steven Fletcher opened the scoring on 65 minutes when he blasted home from the left side of the penalty box. Then on 81 minutes Mark Brown was sent off for pulling down Christopher Killen when he was through on to goal. Two minutes later Killen scored from the resulting penalty.

Caley Jags manager Charlie Christie said: "With sixty minutes gone in the game I was relatively happy with the way things were going. We had fallen out of it for a fifteen minute spell in the first half but we started the second half reasonably well and then we got caught napping in an important area and Hibs went ahead. They are a good side when they get their noses in front.... "Hibernian manager John Collins acknowledged the important part his keeper played in the game, "He has come in for a bit of criticism even before I arrived but he has responded in the perfect way with two terrific saves.... My job is to give him confidence. He was down after the Kilmarnock game."

"... I felt Inverness deserved to win...  "

ICT FC 1-1 Aberdeen 6th November 2006

Caley Jags go eight games unbeaten as Aberdeen manage to pull back a draw on the 90th minute. A draw that denied Caley Jags the opportunity to join second place Hearts on 21 points. Hard working Graham Bayne had put Caley Jags in front on 78 mins with his fifth goal of the season. His diving header met a precision cross into the box by Roy McBain. However, it was in the last minute of full time that Aberdeen equalized when substitute Steve Lovell knocked in a goal bound Lee Miller header.

Caley Jags manager Charlie Christie said: "Our final pass was poor in the first half and it was something we talked about at half-time.... Last season, we might have sat back and settled for a draw but we looked the more likely to open the scoring. Games between the clubs are so tight... My man of the match by a mile... Graham Bayne. "Aberdeen manager Jimmy Calderwood said "I was disappointed, especially after we had done so well against a very good Hibs side last week... we were a lucky team to get a point... I felt Inverness deserved to win tonight..."

Caley Jags took the lead on 34 mins when Craig Dargo scored following a Barry Wilson cross. John Sutton headed in the equaliser for St Mirren on 65 mins when he got on the end of a Simon Lappin corner.

Caley Jags manager Charlie Christie said: "It was a very good away result but not the best of performances in the second half in fact I was very disappointed with our second half showing.  We had given ourselves a platform with the goal and also had created three or four excellent chances in the first half so to come out in the second half and only have one effort on goal is not like us and was disappointing "Andy Millen, the St Mirren player-assistant manager : "... You have to remember we are still new to the SPL. Inverness are, outside of Celtic, the form side... Credit to our players in the second half, and we merited what we got."

ICT FC 3-2 Falkirk 21st October 2006

Caley Jags went down two goals after Anthony Stokes scored on 41 and 51 minutes. Charlie Christie responded with the substitution of Roy McBain and Richard Hastings with Richie Hart and Denis Wyness. This was the start of a turn around which saw Caley Jags score three times before the final whistle. The first came from Craig Dargo on 70 minutes when he headed the ball into the net. John Rankin then scored his first goal for the club on 82 minutes. He followed this four minutes later with a second. Both goals came from free kicks.

Caley Jags manager Charlie Christie said: "...I am delighted, absolutely over the moon.  You don't get results and comebacks like that unless you have a great team spirit in the squad... " John Hughes: "... It's very, very disappointing as, for an hour, I thought that was as good as we have played, but mistakes cost us.."

Rangers 0-1 ICT FC 14th October 2006

Caley Jags achieved their first victory over Rangers since entering the SPL, and they managed it at Ibrox, in front of a crowd of over 49000. Again, the Dargo-Bayne pairing paid dividends. On 71 minutes Craig Dargo blasted a shot from 20 yards. Rangers goalkeeper Lionel Letizi, who will not be this month's SPL Player of the Month, failed to keep hold of the ball. Caley Jags striker Graham Bayne was on hand to knock it into the net.

Delighted Caley Jags manager Charlie Christie said: "... Graham Bayne has done so well to react to the spilled shot and we dug our heels in. The goal gave us something to fight for and hold onto and we did that, in what was a tremendous defensive performance and like I already said a huge result for the Club..." Meanwhile Ranger manager Le Guen said: "... It's a bad result... It's a bad performance and I have the feeling we could have played for three hours without scoring a goal. That's why I'm very disappointed."

"...I am delighted to finally get three points at home..."

ICT FC 1-0 Dunfermline 30th September 2006

The first home win of the season for Caley Jags was achieved, into injury time at the end of the match, when Ross Tokely's shot was deflected off Muirhead past Pars' keeper De Vries. What was reported to be a rather lack lustre game burst into life in the dying minutes. John Rankin had a fine opportunity to score his first goal for Caley Jags. Although he had only the keeper to beat his shot went wide. In the last minute of normal time, De Vries was forced to make a fine save from Graham Bayne who spun round to shoot on the turn just yards from the goal.

Caley Jags manager Charlie Christie said: "Today was a really important result....  I am delighted to finally get three points at home but I though it was well deserved despite the lucky break we got.  We dictated the second half from start to finish but we did not create enough chances in that period...   However the players tried very hard to make things happen for us and give the fans something to shout about and we got there in the end."

"... we were tremendous, absolutely exceptional. We should have gone on and won the game."

Kilmarnock 1-1 ICT FC 23rd September 2006

Kilmarnock were first to score in a game with plenty of end to end action. In the 7th minute Colin Nish headed in a corner kick from David Fernandez. Craig Dargo leveled the score 12 minutes later. After a throw in, Darren Dods headed towards the far post and Dargo knocked it past Killie keeper Graeme Smith into the roof of the net. Around the 70 minutes mark Richie Hart had a strike at goal. The ball was low and although blocked by Smith he was unable to keep hold of the ball. Craig Dargo was on hand to strike the free ball. Although at very close range the ball hit the post and rebounded away from the goal.

After the game manager Charlie Christie said "Second half we were tremendous, absolutely exceptional. We should have gone on and won the game... In the first 20 minutes, we were not great and lost a goal from a corner, which is unlike us, and had to thank Dargo for getting us back in the game... We had five or six good chances, although, to be fair, Mark pulled off a great save at the end."Jim Jefferies the Killie manager thought his team deserved a share of the points. "It was a fair result... Their goalkeeper made a fantastic save late in the game... Inverness are a very hard team to play against. They set up two solid banks of four and hit you on the break. "

ICT FC 0-0 Dundee United 16th September 2006

Caley Jags dominated the first half but were unable to capitalise. United had an improved second half when they caused more problems for the home team. Caley Jags continue to fail to match their away form at home.

Charlie Christie: "... we had three great chances in the first half... The frustrating thing was that on too many occasions we played a safe ball instead of a decisive pass."Craig Brewster: "... But there were not many clear-cut chances because Caley are a good side who are difficult to break down."

"... I thought we looked threatening at every corner."

Motherwell 1-4 ICT FC 9th September 2006

Ross Tokely scored after 25 minutes from a header, after a poor clearance from Motherwell goalkeeper Graeme Smith. Three minutes into the second half, Barry Wilson won the ball from Quinn and squared to Craig Dargo strategically placed in the box. His shot from ten yards out was unstoppable. Motherwell eventually replied when Keith Lasley's free-kick, on 72 minutes, was met by Scott McDonald's head to direct the ball into the bottom corner of the net. Seven minutes later Grant Munro scored from a Barry Wilson corner. Rory McAllister came on as substitute for Dargo on 83 minutes. McAllister scored Caley Jag's fourth goal of the game four minutes later again from a Barry Wilson corner.

After the game manager Charlie Christie acknowledged that Motherwell had been threatening at times, "It was a great result although the score flattered us." He added: "It is important to have four different players get on the scoresheet too, because it is better than relying on just one or two players as we did last season a bit with Craig Dargo." Reflecting on the teams preparation for the game Christie said: "But I thought we looked threatening at every corner. We have worked on our set-pieces and changed them a little bit and it has paid off."

After the match Charlie Christie said, "We have played worse in games and come away with something... History books will say that it was 4-1 but I don't know how we lost by that score... It was as good as we played since we beat Hearts 3-1 in the Scottish Cup in 2002."

Dumbarton evened the score on 30 minutes when Dobbie scored. Caley Jags regained and kept the lead in the second half with goals from Bayne and McAllister on 54 and 72 minutes.

It's an excellent point for a club of our size against one of the Old Firm."

ICT FC 0-0 Hibernian FC 12th August 2006

When Hibs visited Inverness both teams were still to win their first game of the season. This game ended with no goals being scored and the points being shared. Manager Charlie Christie believes it was down to Darren Dods that Caley Jags earned a point. "He was the man of the match and was very solid in defence. In particular, I thought he was a rock when Hibs became more direct in the second half and I have no qualms about Darren staying here." Referring to Dods' rejected transfer request, earlier in the week, Charlie said "Darren will still be here in May 2007, and we want to make it clear that he is going nowhere - and maybe he will even extend his stay with us."

Aberdeen 1-1 ICT FC 5th August 2006

Since arriving in the SPL, Caley Jags have not beaten Aberdeen. This game did not change that situation. Aberdeen went ahead in the first half. Sustained effort by Caley Jags late in the second half was rewarded with a Barry Wilson equalizer. After the game Charlie Christie said "I've never seen us dominate Aberdeen so much at Pittodrie as we did in the second half. It took a break to equalize - but a deserved break, unquestionably.".

ICT FC 1-2 St Mirren 29th July 2006

This was St Mirren's first game in their return to the SPL. They got off to a fine start. Caley Jags however started the season with a continuation of their below par home form. However, striker Craig Dargo made an excellent start to his season by scoring the first Caley Jags goal of 2006-2007. Manager, Charlie Christie was far from impressed with the team's defensive efforts. "We lost a really poor first goal, but then the second goal made the first one look like a wonder goal because it was an embarrassment," he said.
