It still stings, but we need to park the pain of defeat and get back on the horse tomorrow. Reversals can become infectious, they can drive confidence into a spiral. For my money, this phenomenon in part formed Brendan’s reaction after the game on Wednesday. He was relatively upbeat, containing the consequences by saying whatever positives were available.
Kilmarnock are the only domestic opponents to beat Celtic this season, so we have are reasons to be cautious.
Our motivation should be clear, win, and put seven points between us and St Mirren, with the Paisley club playing Newco on Sunday. Let’s hope our Glasgow rivals can do is a favour and peg Saints back.
