“Keep winning takes care of everything,” Big Bad John

Another of Celtic’s former players, Big, Bad John Hartson has been having his say on the result today from McDairmid Park. Ange Postecoglou and his men were rewarded with three points and the reinstating of our nine-point gap at the top of the cinch Premiership league table this afternoon, after a 4-1 victory over the second most successful Scottish club of the last 11 years.

The game was a stroll for Celtic as we shot two past the St Johnstone goalkeeper early in the game, thanks to an own goal from the distraught Andy Considine and another from the magnificent Kyogo Furuhashi. After that the Saints managed to pull one back after a great hit from outside the box. However, Celtic wasted no time in getting a third thanks to some sublime, intricate play between Jota and Aaron Mooy to put us back in cruise control.

Dominating the game from there on in, the Bhoys took everything in their stride as they strutted towards another win on the road this season. Late into the match, we had the opportunity at a shot on the St Johnstone goal and David Turnbull made no mistake after a cute lay-off from teammate, Matt O’Riley. Despite another crazy VAR check, the goal all but confirmed our latest win on the way to Two-in-a-row.

Big Hartson pointed to the deep-seated winning mentality in the squad big Ange has assembled and suggested that all Celtic need to concentrate on is winning the next game. All the outside noise from elsewhere in the city becomes utterly redundant if we keep on the way we’re going for sure – Hartson has been over the course before and knows the score in that regard.

Speaking via Twitter, Big Bad John said: “Celtic again showing a winning mentality despite any hurdles put in front of them.. things you can’t effect. Keep winning takes care of everything.”

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.

  1. A polite way to say refs and var are making a mockery of what should make the game meaning cut out honest mistake but it just shows the hatred they have for one club they try there best to stop them winning allowing opisition get away with blatent time waisting even got the ballboys holding onto ball but all it does is spoil game for people who pay to get in and those who pay to watch no one wants to see time waisting anything to break up play kicking ball away to stop free kicks taken quickly referees no advantage and some terrible calls what goes for one dosent go for all but celtic to there credit keep winning im glad most of our away games and cup games are tellivised live so people see how poor some decision are made to help teams when there against celtic
