Bottom line is that Celtic needed something from Ibrox and got it

The celebrations in the aftermath of yesterday’s Glasgow Derby seemed to suggest that theRangers were the happier of the two sides, despite throwing away the opportunity of taking the front seat in the title race.

Embarrassing lap of honour 

It looked more like a victory celebration as theRangers players took a lap of honour in front of their delighted supporters. indeed Phillipe Clement even bizarrely claimed it was a ‘victory’ in his post match interview.

I get that it was sheet relief after coming back from two goals down and playing so poorly, but the reality is that they were the side in the ascendancy before the game. They had the luxury of being the home side with the entire stadium backing them.

In Celtic’s hands

A win would have all but guaranteed them the title (in their own eyes), but with them still to play at Celtic Park after the split it’s still all in Celtic’s hands. Celtic had to avoid defeat yesterday and that was achieved.  If it was us in their position yesterday I know I’d be bitterly disappointed.

But they seem to be breathe different air over at Ibrox way. They don’t see things the same way as right thinking folk. It’s sheer delusion and nothing else. Roundly booed at half time to world beaters at full time tells you all you need to know.

Bought into the delusion

Clement seems to have bought into the delusion by claiming yesterday as a victory. It must be part of the interview process over at Ibrox. Or maybe there’s something strong brewed in that famous Loving Cup that they are all fond of taking a sip from.

Just an Ordinary Bhoy
