Celtic’s best performance of the season restored title belief

Not only was the 7-1 mauling of Dundee our best performance of the season, it gave us the confidence we would be Champions…

Eye catching performances by the side have been few and far between in a season where our inconsistency to do it over the ninety minutes has been a major concern.

Our 4-1 win at Tynecastle in October was impressive as was the 6-0 win over Aberdeen in November. Then just this month the 3-0 win over Hearts and the 5-0 win over Kilmarnock were also good on the eye, but there’s one game for me that stands out on its own.

That was the win on a cold night at the end of February when he thumped a decent Dundee side 7-1 at Celtic Park, with the goals coming from seven different goal scorers. It wasn’t just the high number of goals but the all round performance. We just clicked from the start and headed into the break six goals to the good. It was a scintillating performance.

The roar that greeted the players as they left the field was akin if not better than the reception usually reserved for Champions League nights or Glasgow Derby days in Paradise.

We only added one goal in the second half but that game for me was a vital point in the season. That night gave both the supporters and the players extra belief that we could indeed retain our title and that’s exactly what happened.

    I said it to my mate at the game when the players had all disappeared up the tunnel that l couldn’t remember in all the years if supporting the Hoops a half time ovation of that magnitude and also how different we were to the huns in that their default halftime position is booing and jeering their team off the park.
    Let’s hope that Parasite Pete (if he is still unbelievably in situ) gets the chequebook out but more importantly lets those with a footballing brain rather than his “football manager” fiasco of previous years do the player selections.
