Is there a bookies offering money on STV News achieving four-in-a-row tonight? Can they set a new record of show footage of fans at Celtic Park on Sunday four consecutive days? Don’t bet against it.
You would not be reading this if you thought a banned Daily Record journo got a line from those who banned him on Dermot Desmond’s musings. It just didn’t happen. The tabs are also keen to squeeze every drop from Sunday’s incident. It is an open goal they are going to batter at for as long as possible.
I get that we are vulnerable and these are hard times in the news business, but enough, already.
Normally the hours before Celtic play at the San Siro would be a tense time but the team will probably be glad of the chance to go out and play without consequence. There is nothing for us to gain tonight beyond a self-respecting performance. I would be delighted with that but would settle for no injuries.
Celtic: Fifty Flags Plus One, an anthology of how Celtic won each of their league titles, is available now. Starting with our first title in 1893, it details how Willie Maley brought consistent glory, then the sparse successes over four decades before Jock Stein arrived in 1965 and the more contemporary wins since.
It will rekindle memories you had forgotten and give insight into how the leagues were won.
