With the league now a distant memory, we can look forward to the fourth-round clash with our neighbors from across the city. The rangers who will be aiming to win the first Scottish Cup in their short history. They and their fans continue to give the two fingered salute to society by ignoring the safe Covid practices everyone else has been following so to keep Scotland safe hopes will be high for a Celtic victory.
Celtic dominated the game against Falkirk on Saturday evening live on Premier Sports even if they did make us wait almost an hour before James Forest who came back in the starting line-up opened the scoring, a player we have missed this season while he was out with injury. Ryan Christie got the second after been misfiring for most of the season and Mo Elyounoussi added a third to set up a Glasgow derby with the Newco.
The game will take place on Saturday, April 17 with the kick-off time of 4pm and not the usual noon kick off time when both clubs meet. This will give the Police plenty of time to arrange an escort into the Georges Square for the after party should the new club beat Celtic.
In the case that Celtic win, then the batons will be polished and ready to attack any Celtic fans who might be planning to pop out to the off license for a quiet celebration like the one we had when we won 9IAR.
Now we know that Mathematics has not been a strong point of the fans of the new club with the 1 + 0 = 55 shenanigans but it would seem that they also think they can still go domestically undefeated. I had Jacky Meehan from the NAFCSC on the Celtic Soul Podcast on Friday who pointed out that to do this they will need a time machine to go back and beat St. Mirren. They would also need that time machine to go back and save their club before they let it die.
To listen to Jacky chatting to me click link below for some Las Vegas tales, the current state of play at the club and growing up in Celtic’s most successful period from 1965 till 1974.
