I love it when opponents get their excuses for failure in before a ball is kicked. Reaction to yesterday’s Premiership fixture announcement, which sees Newco visit Celtic Park on 17 October, at the end of the first round of games, was conspiratorial. You would have thought Wee Willie John McFadyen’s computer was running things. Suspicion was also raised that Newco visit Aberdeen on the opening day of the season.
I hope they continue to lay the conspiracy theories on thick, providing a ready excuse to fail. They will need it.
