Another day, another one of these ridiculous headlines, screaming at you.
A few weeks ago it was a prediction that we would finish second, miles behind Ibrox.
Then it was a prediction that Hibs or Hearts might split us and push us into third.
Then some joker suggested that we could finish fourth. Now this.
It’s a matter of time before we get up to read that Ange could not possibly survive if we finished in the bottom six, as if that would need actually reporting.
What dire coverage all this is, and as I pointed out the other day all this nonsensical guff is coming from ex Ibrox players who are being asked the question so that the media can write the headlines it wants.
Let’s state the obvious; there is zero chance that Celtic will finish third, fourth or fifth. Zero chance. I can say it quite confidently, and everyone out there knows this too. The people reporting this know it. The mouthy gits who are saying it know it.
Still, it all adds to the frustration of this latest international break because I can’t be alone in wanting the real football back as soon as possible.
We have our away win. The string is broken. We can now start thinking about putting together that long winning run which answers the remaining questions and starts to drop the volume on this lunacy.
By the end of this season every one of these people will have been silenced. I am eager for it. Because really, the last few weeks have been a joke. The amount of pressure they are trying to heap on our whole club is far in excess of what is reasonable.
When you consider that we’re frequently told that no bias exists, isn’t it amazing that the bulk of the press can all be acting in the same way; promoting the idea of Celtic as a club in permanent crisis?
