Always in Celtic’s shadow, they’re simply second best

Still smarting from being thumped 5-1 by PSV and kicked out the Champions League and their home defeat to a depleted Celtic side, Michael Beale continued the game of smoke and mirrors by the Ibrox club by giving the present squad a tour of the club museum.

Fresh on the heels of allowing the English national side use their training facilities, this was another smart move by the club to get the staunch bears back on side.

It’s also a timely reminder to them that they are second best in this country and always will be.

Let’s forget the fact that they are only 11 years old, which is exactly what they are. What the hell can fit into 12 years? It’s like a 12 year old writing an autobiography.

Anyway as we know it’s a shrine to the old club, you know the dead one that had all its honours purchased by Charles Green back in 2012, the famous bike and all.

Founding Father Charles Green claimed he bought their trophies 

It’s only right they showcased all their ‘sporting’ success to those who wish to view it, they did steal their name after all.

Have they got an Empire Cup in their trophy room? Nope. The Coronation Cup? Nope. The European Cup, along with the four other trophies on display that season? Nope. Double treble? Nope. Treble Treble? Nope, or the Quadruple treble? Nope.

They can showcase oldcos nine in a row I suppose, but guess what? Celtic done that first and are the only club – dead or alive – to have done it twice. Just like all the major successful firsts in this country we achieved it all. Yes Celtic hold all those accolades. It’s good of Mick Beale to remind his squad that they will always be second best, always in our shadow.

Just an Ordinary Bhoy
