Title momentum with Celtic, photos from team’s magnificent send-off at Paradise

The title momentum is all with Celtic, despite the narrative that’s being spun in the media and theRangers support…

Sunday’s result at Ibrox was a major disappointment given we were 2-0 up at the interval and then 3-2 up with just a minute to play. Despite a draw not being the worst outcome, it felt like a bit of a blow as we were in total control of the game at one point and could have been three of four goals to the good at the break.

That’s now in the past however, and we can only look forward. More importantly the destination of the title remains firmly in our own hands. Not that you would think that with the wild yarn being spun in the media.

For some reason the narrative amongst the SMSM is that theRangers are firmly in the driving seat, despite having a chunk of their remaining games away from home, one of those which is a tough trip to Paradise to take on the Champions.

The Ibrox side have yet to beat the champions this season and won’t be relishing a trip to the pressure cooker atmosphere in Paradise. You can bet your life if the boot was on the other foot and we had to head to Ibrox for a likely title decider, the media hordes wouldn’t be talking up our chances in the same manner.

We have to ignore all that nonsense though and concentrate on the task in hand. We have more than a good chance, and it’s all firmly in our hands. We don’t need favours from anyone, we just need to win our remaining six fixtures and we will be champions. We have four games at home while they have five away and just two at Ibrox. Everything is clearly in our favour, despite what’s being spouted elsewhere.

Celtic have fewer games, more at home, they have more than double the number of away fixtures and the league table when the Glasgow Derby comes round might be different from what it is at the moment, or indeed later tomorrow night, assuming the game at Dens Park goes ahead. They then travel to Dingwall while we play St Mirren at Celtic Park.

Even Hearts away might be a banana skin for them post split, okay that’s taking it too far!

Just an Ordinary Bhoy

Celtic supporters gathered outside the stadium of Saturday afternoon at the invitation of the two Celtic ultras groups, the Green Brigade and Bhoys Celtic to give the players a colourful, loud and crucial send-off as they headed to their pre-match hotel ahead of Sunday’s visit to Ibrox.

THE CELTIC STAR photographer Vagelis Georgariou (or just Geo) was there to capture the best images and here’s our first chance to show them all on the site. Magnificent from the supporters who were there. Enjoy…
