Even though Celtic weren’t at their brilliant best in Saturday’s 3-2 win over Rangers, a familiar pattern played out before, during and after the game.
Before it we endured the usual bravado from the south side of the city – from club officials as well as fans – telling us we were ‘there for the taking’ and that Rangers had ‘closed the gap’ on Celtic.
During the game – as this side tend to always do under Ange Postecoglou, especially when it matters most – Celtic found a way to win! It’s now 6 games and counting since Celtic lost to Rangers in the league.
And after the game? Take your pick.
If it wasn’t Michael Beale, it was captain James Tavernier and team-mate Todd Cantwell reverting to what has become a very familiar excuse culture in the aftermath of another Glasgow Derby defeat.
The footballing equivalent of “a big boy did it and ran away!”
For Celtic, a second successive Scottish league title is now just 3 games away.
