The Waiting Game
Could be a momentous wee day,this. Something which certainly didn’t seem likely on Saturday 15 October,2011! Twenty minutes to go at Rugby Park and three down to Kilmarnock saw the knives being sharpened. Neil Lennon would have been unlikely to survive such a defeat on the back of some already poor domestic (and European) form which had left Rangers with a hefty lead beforehand.
Instead,Anthony Stokes and an inspired James Forrest led the unlikeliest of comebacks,with Charlie Mulgrew completing the comeback with an equaliser in the 80th minute.
Our lads never looked back after this,and cruised to a comfortable league title,the first of four under Neil Lennon,and eight in succession.
To date! For we are again comfortably clear in the title race,and although football is suspended in Scotland,it looks increasingly likely that the SPFL will vote today to declare the season over. Placings will be decided on a points per game basis,and we will be
NINE IN A ROW CHAMPIONS!!!
It is unfortunate that the decision appears also to have been made to cancel the rest of the Scottish Cup campaign for 2019/20 as that denies us the chance to attain a remarkable FOURTH consecutive Treble. But no matter. We are for the second time
NINE IN A ROW CHAMPIONS
and will be looking for a fifth consecutive Clean Sweep of domestic trophies next season. I won’t be making any predictions on that,and I’m not handing out any plaudits or congratulations just yet either. Meanwhile,we await developments…
