We are almost week on from Morton (our only mustn’t lose game in March) but there will be a business-like atmosphere around Lennoxtown today as the team prepare to go to Ibrox, scene of three consecutive wins since Newco were promoted to top flight football. Brendan and his players are all too aware of the big talk coming from Murray Park. If ever they needed motivation, they didn’t need to look far.
Fans of either colour, who have been around long enough, will recognise the occasion, but this is not the way you and I used to feel about going to Ibrox. Back in the old days I preferred to go there as slight underdogs, which was often as good as it got for Celtic fans. Now, we travel to every ground in the country as strong favourites, no matter what our form. This is nothing like it was in the pre-liquidation years.
I want to win, of course, but I would have been devastated if we’d lost to Morton. Sunday’s game cannot reach me the same way. This is a step on the road to what will hopefully be a treble, don’t pretend it is about winning the league, it’s just not.
