‘Think I’m going to be sick, the league is over,’ the exact moment joy turns to vomit

CELTIC were drawing 1-1 at Tynecastle late in the game against ten man Hearts. At Ibrox the home side had won their game, beating Dundee easily by 4-0. The two games that they had pinned their hopes on since they lost at Kilmarnock were Celtic’s trips to Rugby Park and Tynecastle. On both these grounds Celtic had a poor recent recent, losing their previous two visits.

It looked like Celtic were going to drop two points at Killie until in the last few seconds Dedryck Boyata intelligently headed a cross from a corner kick back towards his own goal for the advancing Celtic skipper to shoot. Broony’s effort was actually heading for Saltcoats rather than the back of the net but a deflection off a Kilmarnock arm saw the ball change direction and head for the back of the net.

It was a tough blow for the Govanites. But if it was one down, they still had one to go. Tynecastle. Craig Levein, Naismith would do his best, there was still hope.

“Celtic scored a wonder goal on the counter attack. Sh*t!”

“Hearts get a man sent off. Disaster!”

“Wait, Celtic shoot themselves in the foot, it’s a penalty! Don’t feckin’ miss!”

“GOOOOOOOOOAL Hearts! 55 is on its way!”

“93 minutes gone, still one each, that’s it, brilliant!”

Or so the Zom, Noza Render thought.

He wrote “Hahaha Celtic 1-1. More points dropped!! Here we come!!!! Let’s go!!!! 55 on its way.

Another Zom, David Campbell, told him to “Delete” but Zom Noza replied “Correct, hahaha, nice one. We will delete Celtic!!!!! 5 points and closing. Thank you Jambos!!!!!”

Zom Campbell replied, ‘They won 2-1″…and poor old Noza didn’t take the news well…

“Think I’m going to be sick, the league is over.”
