Now that the dust has settled and the benches in Georges Square have been sent off to be repaired and the Rangers fans have retreated back into their homes happy in the knowledge that they have enjoyed a Covid super spreader event, one that Donald Trump himself would be proud of.
Celtic’s same club tweet may have been welcome last night but we should not let it deflect from the problems we have at our club. On Sunday we witnessed a Celtic team not prepared to put a tackle in or go the extra mile to secure 3 points and force the Rangers to come to Celtic Park to fight for the title we have held proudly for 9 consecutive seasons.
All football players have a certain shelf life and sadly many of the current Celtic squad would seem to have come to the end of the road at Celtic. Some of the players did not want to be at the club this season and have used Celtic as stepping-stone for bigger moves and these moves have only played out in some of their minds.
Some of our players egos are bigger than their ambitions. Now the time has come to say farewell for if they could not be bothered to put up a fight in this historical league season then I don’t expect them to redeem themselves in the Scottish Cup although nothing would make me happier than to see some silverware staying at Celtic Park this season.
I haven’t seen anything in John Kennedy’s two games in charge that would suggest that anything has changed with this bunch of players and I hope that Dermot Desmond has a rescue plan up his sleeve because at the moment the club is a total shambles from top to bottom and no rangers covid party can deflect from the current state of play at Celtic.
