Having disposed of Raith Rovers last night, Celtic have two huge away games, against top of the table Motherwell before a trip to Moscow for a Champions League match against Spartak in six days.
Tonight Spartak play just a few miles from the Ukraine border and have a journey of close to 1000 miles on Saturday. It is little wonder they, like Celtic, are looking for ways to improve their injury record.
Celtic will travel to Moscow only a few hours after Spartak leave the city of Perm to journey home. On Tuesday we will be the fresher team. Could this be the game we break our duck away from home in the Champions League? If we get it right on the park it will be.
I didn’t read the (incredible) statement by Charles Green until late last night, when I caught it via the excellent analysis by Paul McConville on his Random Thoughts blog. Mr Green, Paul concludes, is “Either… stupid, which he is not, or he has decided to continue to appeal to his core support”.
There is a third alternative. Last season we watched Craig Whyte, then Duff and Phelps, embark on a series of unfathomable actions. Neither party was stupid, nor were their actions necessarily guided by anything as a coordinated appeal; they were simply being buffeted along by circumstances. No one was in control, had the experience necessary or was party to a deliverable Grand Plan, resulting in a series of random utterances.
