There is times when you have to accept you are at a place or are heading to a place that you don’t want to be. I’ve found out that I’m at that a place when people think it’s ok to buy me and my Dad the same jumper and think it’s not offensive to either of us.
Celtic are at that place when celebrating an injury time winner, against St Johnstone, like you have won the Champions League doesn’t feel embarrassing at all. It’s comfortable accepting that we are in a place when making this league a race and not a procession is progress. Long may it continue and just maybe, if all the stars align, the moon enters Saturn’s ring via Uranus’s orbit then we could win this thing.
Not likely, but it’s makes games like yesterday mean something.
We’ve had a few bad results- bad results in Celtic terms, not in real world terms – and sometimes you can’t tell if the players care as the wander of the park at the FT whistle. Yesterday, the celebrations showed that they understand the importance of hanging on in there for as long as possible. Hell, it smelt like Team Spirit yesterday.
We were as blunt as drawer full of plastic butter knifes and were lucky that St Johnstone decided that doing a decent impersonation of a punch bag hoping not to meet that knockout blow. But…the last two minutes makes us all forget that.
So how did they rate.
Double F, frozen dongle, 3. Cha Du Ri, nice pecks, 4. Danny, simple does it, 5. Rogne, panic over, 5. Lizzy, settling in period now being seen, 4.
Partridge McGinn, how he has lasted so long in the last two games is beyond me, 1. Brown, did anyone see any difference in the midfield with him there?, 3. Ki, aye, we will miss him, 6. McCourt, wanted it more than others, 6.
Steptoes Horse, -10. Samaras, his strop when being subbed was the end. -10. Kapo, spent his whole time on the park looking like he would rather have been anywhere else, 1. Stokes, not the player of a few months back, 3.
Who was best for you? Goals and a strange Scott Brown celebration.
