I know what you’re thinking. It’s Saturday, where’s Celtic’s trophy presentation? Last Saturday it was the Scottish Cup, a week earlier, the Premiership trophy. You can be forgiven for expecting the same today.
For me, the pick of last season’s trophies was the League Cup Final. Newco came into it in great form since the arrival of Mick Beale as manager. It was a test of his credentials and of Celtic’s. The dominance of the win belies the 2-1 scoreline, Celtic were miles ahead.
Speaking of dominance, it was rewarding to read that Barry Ferguson endorsed Celtic’s Generation of Domination in his Daily Record column. He wrote about our “decades of dominance”.
Although he goes on to say, “let’s be very, very clear. This dominance has to stop.” Back in the day (January 2005), I asserted our G.o.D. started in 2000, so we are now onto the third decade, if that’s how Barry likes to count them, out the second generation, if you prefer.
What was missing from Barry’s piece is any hope that things were going to change. Barry is not as daft as some make out.
Better a trophyless Saturday than a trophyless existence.
