Celtic 2 – 0 Aberdeen
It would be wrong to say that all is well in the world of the Celtic fan. But we took a massive step yesterday to what was once known as an unprecedented quadruple. Yes,that was when the huns were going for four trophies,overlooked the fact that we had won five in 1967 and four in 1969. You know what they’re like by now.
Make it up as they go along,basically.
One thing they can’t make up is that yesterday’s result puts us in line for,well,an unprecedented quadruple. That’s a quadruple of trebles. I know,takes a bit of getting your head round. But a few days before Christmas we face Hearts with the chance to win our TWELVE consecutive trophy,and a fourth consecutive trophy.
This site has never been slow to attempt to point out the inconsistencies and worse in our performances this season,nor at various times beforehand. But it is difficult to use the word inconsistency to a side going for its twelfth trophy in a row.
In truth,we seldom looked under pressure yesterday bar the first few minutes. Once we put a marker down,it was all over midway through the first half. Firstly,Ryan Christie curled in a worldie to the top corner and a few minutes later Rogic sent one in from the left for Mo-who seems to have come on to a game lately and long may it continue!-to header home at the far post.
We could have added to our score then,but maybe took our foot off the gas in the second half. I’ve not got too much of a problem with that. It put a bit more pressure on our defence,aye,but the much maligned lads stood strong-and that will do them a power of good. And once again,they seemed to have faith in their keeper. And with good reason.
But we still pushed,and while a goal for the opposition would have brought them back into it,frankly even playing within ourselves a third looked more likely from us. It was the kind of performance-even on my dodgy stream!-which many of us take for granted and have been desperate for all season.
Yesterday it arrived. Yesterday we were sound all over the pitch. Yesterday might have been the day we have been waiting for,the day we announced that we are back,and that we know what needs to be done.
Yesterday was what I’ve been waiting for. Welcome back,Celtic.
