Sandman’s view on Kyogo nicking one off Matt O’Riley and his Unique Angle reaction

Nice to see the return of Celtic TV’s Unique Angle today, it’s been a while. The editing team, after watching that game at the weekend must have been as bemused as the rest of us, that Celtic only managed to score three goals in the game, one of which they didn’t even have to include in today’s Unique Angle.

Did you notice that the scorer of the first goal was not proclaimed until the stadium announcer had the chance to watch it back on the big screens. He gave it to Kyogo, rather than Matt O’Riley and the striker’s poaching instincts didn’t go down too well with Sandman who had a bet on O’Riley to scroe with a header in the game. Check out Sandman’s reaction to that particular piece of skullduggery from Kyogo in Sandman’s Definitive Ratings.

The own goal isn’t included, which is a bit of a pity, because there’s definitely a funny side to the silliest goal that Celtic will lose all season and again Sandman is on form when he considers that defensive calamity.

Thereafter Reo Hatate was first the hero, then the villan as his slackness allowed referee John Beaton his moment of personal glory, getting to send off the Celtic captain. Drinks incoming in the blue nosed boozers of Bellshill for that particular achievement. All Celtic should ask for is that the rules of the game be applied in all situations, in all games and it’s easy to see that this season, yet again, this is not the case. Can you spot the difference?

But putting that game to bed, it’s three point for Celtic that takes us back to the top of the league looking down on theRangers and all we’ve got left to do is to show you today’s Unique Angle…
