Paddy McCourt’s Celtic career summed up in one 30 second spell. A goal, like all his others, that will live long in the memory causing the injury that ended his game. This was not any kind of injury. No, this was an injury received during the celebration of said goal when Shaun Maloney kneed him in the head.
Our manager says ‘it was a kind of whiplash’. I say it was just plain bizarre.
We were wasteful but at no time in the second half did I go behind the couch and pray to whatever God I think exists this week. Woodwork, great saves and Samaras were to blame for a not more convincing scoreline.
We will just not mention the first 25 mins. Ok.
Coffee & Tv Man Of The Match: Shaun Maloney. Agree?
