I read today that Ally McCoist and the are less than impressed about their opening game, and that the Celtic match appears to have been “pushed back” to get fans into grounds.

I had a feeling their wee faces would be tripping this morning.

I argued that Celtic should be studying the fixture list to see what the lie of the land was; as it turns out, will visit Pittodrie, Easter Road and Celtic Park at a time when those clubs are still very unlikely to have a full complement of home supporters in the grounds … so you tell me what the Hell they are moaning at?

We will play those same clubs at home at a time when the natural advantage of a full stadium is not on our side.

So exactly what are these pitiful little children crying about this time?

The way this works out them, not us, and pushing the Celtic game back to October could be argued on public safety grounds as much as on any others.

There is nothing conspiratorial about it, it’s just good sense, and if the computer was jigged a little to make it happen so what?

Public safety comes first, not the hurt feelings of Sevconia and Keith Jackson.

He produced another article filled with dirge today, almost foot-stamping demands that fans should be let into grounds as soon as possible and damn the risks. He acknowledges that the Scottish Government has set the magnificent and realisable goal of eliminating the virus from this country … but he appears to think getting supporters back into matches should take a greater priority. There really are no words that can adequately express how ignorant and stupid that is.

For Sevco fans the fixture list is further proof of corruption; they don’t even know what it is they are moaning about this time though.

Apart from anything else, these fixtures hand them an easier run during the bitterly difficult and cold of November and December, when the fixture list throws ten games in a month at you, between SPL games, European games and League Cup matches … and this year no winter break. It will be carnage.

Fortunately for Celtic, we do have the squad to deal with it …

I wonder how threadbare and down to the bone Sevco’s is going to be by that time?

In the 1951/52 season, SFA George Graham tried to stop Celtic from flying the Irish tricolour flag over Celtic Park, leading to a bitter stand off between him and the club. Which Scottish club backed Graham over his stance?
