Ange Postecoglou is the King of Scottish Football – Long may he reign over you

Common sense and the SPFL don’t usually go hand in hand, but the decision to snub the forced ritual of celebrating the crowning of a freeloader is the correct decision.

They have of course left it to the discretion of the clubs if they feel the need to have such a backward stance. We all know which club is going to be celebrating the loudest and proudest. It will be like Remembrance Day and the 12th of July falling on the same day, but to be fair it’s the only thing they will have to celebrate this season, so good luck to them.

We also might have to witness such rituals as we’re playing at Tynecastle on Sunday and we know how much the Hearts faithful love to copy the traditions of their big Glasgow cousins.

Such nonsense is absurd, it’s very North Korean like. Politics are meant to be kept out of football, so why the need to celebrate a dying out tradition? In Scotland love for the royals is dying despite what you might read. Only a sad group of individuals keep it going.

If your sad enough to worship a family who take your money and give nothing in return that’s your prerogative I suppose. It’s a free world after all, but keep it away from football, a working class sport. Celebrate in your own time.

We will just stick to celebrating our football achievements and hopefully we are doing just that on Sunday, while some are bowing to a family of leeches and celebrating them ruling over us, the rest of us will be celebrating ruling the footballing landscape in this country.

Long may we reign over you.
