Even a below par Celtic still had more than enough to beat this Ibrox side

Unbowed, unbroken and almost home and dry…

I suspect there will be several sore heads this morning after yesterdays result. No need to reach for the paracetamol though as today we wake up twelve points clear with only 7 games to play after a wonderful derby win. Nothing better to clear a sore head.

The game itself was the usual typical frantic derby, one hundred miles an hour with challenges flying in all over the place and no time on the ball for anyone. It did seem to suit theRangers more than Celtic as their aim was to stop us from playing.

It didn’t work though as we prevailed in the end of course, even though we were well below par. We still had enough quality to see the game out. Even at our poorest we still had more than enough to beat the Ibrox side. That’s your gulf right there.

They only looked threatening form set pieces, they didn’t look like they could cut through us in open play, they deployed the same tactics other Scottish sides do at Celtic Park. They didn’t differ from a Hearts or Aberdeen. They didn’t concern me one bit, I was expecting a bit more from them. They are a poor side.

Kyogo proved to be the difference yet again with two expertly taking finishes. Jota of course proved to be the match winner, but the little man from Japan was crucial yet again. He’s the best striker in the country by a distance. Man of the Match was of course Alistair Johnston, he was superb. He really is turning into a wonderful player, yet another gem uncovered by Ange. Josip who?

My Man of the Match though was our skipper Callum McGregor. I thought he was fantastic, he ran that midfield and was a snarling presence throughout, a real captains performance. It was broonyesque.

A special mention to our twelfth man (no not ‘father’ Clancy), the supporters of course. Yet again each and everyone of us produced a fantastic colourful atmosphere. It was a magnificent sight. Celtic Park was well and truly, literally at one point rocking! There is truly no atmosphere like Paradise. Nothing compares.

Yes it was nervy in the end, but we’d done enough to get the three points and that’s all that matters. No matter what the excuses of theRangers players management and supporters are, we deserved that. Var didn’t deny them anything. Their poor defending did. Their excuses are as laughable as their centre backs. Deep down they know they aren’t good enough. They just don’t want to admit Celtic are streets ahead.

Only three wins needed to clinch the title yet again. Never mind those sore heads, it sure is going to be a Beautiful Sunday.

Happy Easter everyone!
