Double-header danger


Consecutive games against the same team are dangerous, even when you win the first convincingly.  We only need to think back to the 7-0 drubbing we dished out to St Mirren in 2009.  The Paisley team were so far outclassed they should not have been on the same field as Celtic that day, but a week later they knocked us out of the Scottish Cup.

Hibs were awful in defence on Wednesday and should have done better with the chances they had going forward, but they will have a point to prove this afternoon and can be relied on to fight “tooth and nail” to puncture Celtic’s title credentials.

If James Forrest is able to float into a central position Celtic should have enough, but they don’t have many game-winners like Forrest.

  1. Looks like a serious injury to Steve Davis (they are speculating on cruciate) ; this will test Rangers creativity. Who else do they have who can make things happen? can Naismith do what Davis does?

  2. The wee animal should have seen red for that challenge. Collum did the league a favour by not pulling out a card. Well done for a change.

    I’m not hard to please. 1-0 aberdeen, 4-0 Celtic and lengthy injuries to Jelavic, Davis and Ratface.


    That’ll do.

    Thanks BRTH – very interesting article.



    I was thinking about the European issue too. In the same way that an application could be made by a newco to go straight to the SPL, a similar application could be made to UEFA for an “exception”.

    Whatever part of my club



    I meant Ratsmith but I see your point, Ratferty is just as vile


    Rangers are awefful but we haven’t heard either of the the commentators mention how rubbish they are. Unlike when the tic are playing


    Must say Aberdeen are awful
