Scottish Premiership football returned to form last night with a Newco handball inside their box passing without punishment. Straight back into the same old Scotland, a society drunk on a lack of oversight or accountability.
Not that the outcome was ever open, our lead at the top of the table was cut to six points ahead of the trip to Pittodrie tomorrow.
Fresh from the sunshine in Sydney, Portugal and for some, Qatar, the North Sea will blow through the Celtic players tomorrow. It will be an as unwelcoming environment as you could face as you try to re-establish the form of five weeks ago. I hope we get the pre-match and halftime routines right. First game back after a layoff in such a cold spell is hamstring injury heaven.
Jim Goodwin has Aberdeen back punching their weight after a few decades in the wilderness. They are third in the table and one of only three clubs with a positive goal difference. They have done a lot more cold-weather training than Celtic over the last month and fancy their chances. On paper, this is one of our most difficult remaining games of the season. A big performance, please, Celtic.
