Video: St Johnstone In Bizarre “We’ve Got Your Cup” Jibe Outside Celtic Park

St Johnstone’s League Cup Final victory over Livingston today meant that they became the second most successful team in Scotland of the last ten years, adding to their Scottish Cup triumph in 2014. Congratulations go to them for that and I’m sure absolutely no ill will from anyone at Celtic Park.

It was an enjoyable match and the scenes of celebration were nice to watch.

Bizarrely, a St Johnstone page on Twitter has uploaded a video of the team bus driving past Celtic Park. The camera then pans round to the League Cup trophy and and someone can be heard saying “look at that, we’ve got your cup.”

It’s all a bit weird and humourous. I doubt if many fans will be annoyed by this or begrudging of the Saints having their moment in the sun, it’s just a bit perplexing as to why they would think anyone at Celtic would be bothered by them winning the cup at our expense, and why Celtic would be in their thoughts after such a great day.

  1. No ill will intended . The bus was driving past there anyway and back- handed compliment about it being in Celtics hands for so long

  2. Celtic won it the four previous years and the bus happened to be passing Celtic Park when it was said. How is it weird tat they would say something like that? I think it says more about the humourless bitterness of the reporter concerned.

    A sign of respect for Celtic who had just won it 4 seasons running. Have passed Celtic Park many times when returning to Perth from Hampden. Also Celtic Park is where we won our last trophy. So naturally we thought of you in the passing. Thanks for your congratulations.
