Dennis the Matchday Menace – Pittodrie is playable but A9 Flooded and at a standstill north of Dunblane

CELTIC fans tomorrow morning face a hazardous journey to Aberdeen with Traffic Scotland reporting on severe flooding on the A9 with the road north of Dunblane currently at a standstill.

And Celtic, who arrived in Aberdeen earlier today, have confirmed that the pitch at Pittodrie is in great shape but there is nevertheless a concern with the wind.

“Hazardous driving conditions tomorrow, allow plenty of time for your journey, pitch is in fine condition, wind only concern at the moment,” John Paul Taylor has advised fans.

“Will update if and when I have anything to update on, all good for now,” the Celtic SLO continued.

Here’s how the road to Aberdeen for the travelling Celtic support looks this afternoon and the rain in and around Dunblane today was relentless.

Meanwhile the Rangers were called both an absolute tinpot club and a new club today. The first description came from the Livingston supporters who complained about the diseased grass pitch at Ibrox by saying “Absolute tinpot club. Get a plastic pitch” while Craig Whyte was asked by BBC Scotland’s Off The Ball if the Rangers were a new club. He replied, “Yes absolutely.” Game, set and match.

And their own fans weren’t happy today when their game was postponed.

The new Ibrox club have re-arranged the game for tomorrow at 3pm so desperate are they to hold onto Celtic’ coat tails.
