The VAR decisions which are going against us are so blatant now that you wonder why those in the Fraternal Brotherhood of Celtic Haters are so clearly showing their hand. Even if you assume that the media will continue to protect them and that the SFA will continue to let them away with murder, you can’t assume Celtic will not aggressively respond.
The truth is, they are desperate. Celtic’s enemies are desperate. If Ange Postecoglou is allowed to carry on his revolution, and if he can get us to where he wants us to be, and if the board continues to back that vision, then there is a very real chance that we could be over the hills and far away inasmuch as football in Scotland is concerned.
This concerns people who are not predisposed towards such an idea.
It particularly concerns those at Ibrox who have managed a mere two major honours since they crawled their way to the SPFL, and with Champions League competition changes coming, and the money set to reach stratospheric levels in just two years, those who are opposed to Celtic are determined to stop us from getting there at all costs.
They can all too easily picture a scenario where The Mooch blows it completely next season (or in the truly unimaginable scenario where someone else is sitting in the Ibrox dugout when the next campaign kicks off) and leaves us on the brink of that fortune.
Understandably, they don’t want to take that chance.
And so the pressure is going to be on us, and they will keep on tightening it with ever more ridiculous decisions and daring us to hold out. Daring us to confront them openly or worse … to just keep on winning in spite of them.
Watch Ibrox carefully this window. Watch everything they do.
Listen carefully to the language they are using.
The Mooch is already contradicting himself at every turn and falling over his own stupid remarks … I think the other day when he talked such obvious nonsense about Morelos (that is for later) he was begging to be contradicted … that no-one did is telling.
A lot of the hacks know how important it is to keep this geezer’s show on the road. As embarrassing as it already is, and as excruciating as it becomes, they will push him as hard as they can until that is no longer tenable, because what choice do they have?
Scottish football needs a strong Ibrox, that’s what you’ll hear from those who are more honest about their motivations.
If that means cheating, or overlooking cheating, that is a small price to pay. I repeat; these people are desperate and there is no knowing what desperate Peepul might do.
