Three Points. Three Goals. Three Chopped Off And Celtic Back On Top.

So we’re back at the top of the table, and for whatever short a time that might last it is significant because the way the media talks at times you would think that this title race was over already and that there was nothing left to play for but our pride. Anything other than a win for the Ibrox club tomorrow at Dundee and we will be top tomorrow night. They may well get their result. But we’re in this all the way.

Tonight we can relax. We’ve done our bit, and we’ll go into the international fortnight in as good a position as we can be.

The football today was better, the goals were good, we had the ball in the net several times although VAR was on hand to make life as difficult as it could. We had one off the post. We had another off the crossbar. It has been a good day overall. Nobody got injured either, which is a big deal these days.

Kyoyo looked as sharp as we’ve seen him for a while. He took his goal well. Kuhn was excellent; he’s hit his stride at exactly the right time. A good performance against Livingston and we can take him to Ibrox confidently.

The key thing there is who else is going to be available. They fear Kyogo. It is critical he plays. Carter Vickers and McGregor would be tremendous. Hatate, if he’s fit enough to play 30 minutes, would be the icing on the cake.

There are seven games left. We’re in this place now where people talk as if it’s not in our hands but of course, it is. Seven wins and a draw. That’s what stands in our way. We’ve gone on better runs than that this season so far, and the team standing in our way is one we’ve already beaten twice,

For all the hysteria that’s surrounded us, we’re still alive and kicking. With players coming onto form we’re now looking at those who are out injured because that’s the key here. Going to Ibrox without them and we might need to think about that draw. Go with our full strength side and we can be back on the summit leaving there … and then this would be ours to lose.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the game today, taking CCV off and not immediately bringing on Lagerbiekle is my only criticism. The goals were good, we’ll probably have to score 6 to get 3 from here on in. All the wingers played well and Kyogo looked tip-top.

  • Bhoy4life says:

    The amount of time they spend analysing our goals is easily much longer than u see anywhere else, particularly Sevco, their goals are awarded inside 20secs everything all good, ours are obviously scrutinised for a way to chop them off, or am I being paranoid?

  • Clachnacuddin and the Hoops says:

    I don’t mind VAR if it does it’s job honestly and if these goals were offside then fair enough…

    But hey ho – This is Scodddland so who knows…

    Good result…

    As was (off topic) Ireland winning the rugby !

  • John L says:

    Do you think for a minute that the Ref and VAR will allow us to leave liebrox with anything? I wish, I could share your optimism ,but after the hearts game, I fear the worst, in their pursuit of everything that is the wee rangers , their cheating knows no bounds.
    Unless our club releases a very strong warning before or after the managers hearing.

  • Roonsa says:

    If we take a draw at Ibrox then it’s game on baby. I think we can win it. But a draw will do for now.

  • SSMPM says:

    Now that’s more like it. HH

  • Kevan McKeown says:

    Result and gettin the players through was the main thing and the performance was definitely encouragin. Goal difference could be a big factor and let’s see if they’re as scrutinizin wi the var in tomorrow’s game, tho ah know whit ahm expectin. We done that ourselves today while gettin away wi absolutely nothin. Keep winnin.

  • Woodyiom says:

    Not sure I totally agree. Yes we were better than of late but let’s be honest that’s not hard. We are still not clinical enough – GD could yet be a deciding factor -and we are simply incapable of keeping a clean sheet even when we have complete control of matches.Why can we not see out games without conceding – think Motherwell at CP, Killie (home and away) thats at least 5points lost which is the reason we are in the position we are. We’ve managed a mere 11 clean sheets in the league and 4 of them were in the first 6games of the season i.e. we’ve only managed 7 clean sheets in the last 24 games – thats a frightening statistic for a team with title aspirations! Teams who can’t keep clean sheets rarely win leagues – as a comparison Rangers have kept 17 having played a game less and that’s after sacking Motormouth at the start of October! So whilst yesterday was definitely more of what we expect from an attacking and speed of play perspective we are still a total soft touch at the back without CCV. If he doesn’t play in any even just one of the final 8 games there’s no way we win the league.

    • Clachnacuddin and the Hoops says:

      Unless you are watching The Scottish Premier League Of Ghosts Woodyiom then ‘Rangers’ haven’t kept clean sheets in 17 games out of 24 as they kicked the bucket in (c.2012)…

      However I do concur that these figures could relate to a club called Sevco that as today will witness if certainly not celebrate their 12th St. Patrick’s Day !!!!

  • Andy Treacy says:

    With Kyogo now coming to prominence, it will be fantastic to get Hatate back. No one else can see the the runs that Kyogo makes

  • Michael Clark says:

    Brenden Rogers has got to set up this team around Kyogo Furuhashi. When we travel to Ibrox he’s the guy who can take these half chances and if were going to win the title this year, we have to win that game
