A place at the top of the league is the prize no offer for Celtic tonight, as well as the chance to atone for a couple of ropey performances earlier in the season. The penalty-aided draw at Celtic Park against Motherwell was perhaps our worst display of the season, while a late collapse at Fir Park against 10 men uncovered serious vulnerabilities.
The Fir Park game is most memorable as the day John Guidetti lost his mojo. He could have had a hat-trick that afternoon but misfired and hasn’t recovered. He’s no longer an automatic starting choice, but if he gets on, he’ll have the perfect opportunity to bury his demons.
Do you think that despite his emotional state, Charles Green knew he Sky Sports’ Jim White would allow him to answer questions about money by talking about his wages, not the onerous contracts which are proving to be a convenient earn-out for those who were in at the start?
As an interview, it was compelling, but Sky missed the target.
Get in early for the minute’s applause in memory of our friend Kano. It will be a chance to reflect on his inimitable style.
CQN11 St Patrick’s Day Dinner Dance is on Friday 13 March, at the Kerrydale Suite, Celtic Park. The focus of an excellent night’s entertainment will be funding the construction of a kitchen at Chibwata Primary School in Malawi, for Mary’s Meals.
