‘Oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh,’ Unique Angle plus ‘Only One Jorge Cadete’

Two brilliant goals turned things around for Celtic in an eventual night at Celtic Park. The three points are of course the most important thing, especially after dropping two points at the weekend.

The empty section at the front of the North Curve was a sad sight and just as St Mirren shocked Paradise by taking an early lead, the Bhoys made their own protest in showing solidarity with the Green Brigade by walking out.

Many supporters didn’t bother to show up, maybe 45k did get to the game in what was a wet and wild Wednesday night, the club were showing the game on PPV and that maybe tempted some supporters to watch the game from the comfort of their own sofa.

Celtic got back on level terms with as assist from Matt O’Riley and a thunderous shot from David Turnbull from the edge of the area. Yet again Celtic hit the post with a penalty kick, after Brendan told us that they’d need to be some practising up at Lennoxtown. Get Kyogo to take them or better still if Big Oh is on the park let him hammer them into the net like Tommy Gemmell used to do so brilliantly.

Jorge Cadete came out at the interval to do the Paradise Windfall and promptly started singing his own song which everyone seemed to love and many found their own singing voices to join in.

The section of Celtic supporters up next to where the small band of St Mirren fans were, created some decent atmosphere in the void left by the empty section of the North Curve and for 83 minutes the section at the other end of the ground where the Bhoys are usually to be found.

There was more singing in the second half, and much relief when Big Oh smashed home the winner in dramatic circumstances. Kyogo had a chance to make it three brilliant goals in the closing stages but maybe took the showboating option rather than the lethal finish root favoured by his Korean teammate.

Kyogo was full of apologies to the support in the Jock Stein stand for that miss. There were some Palestine flags around the ground, and one supporter at the front of the Lisbon Lions stand set of a green smoke bomb whether in defiance or just because he fancied it, I’m not really sure.

Talking of penalties, that one at the weekend at Ibrox certainly made the news after VAR intervened.

Have a look at this one incident from last night and tell me how VAR didn’t intervene this time around?

Here’s the Unique Angle of two very special Celtic goals.
