As yet another Celtic player falls victim to cv we are now wondering at what point over this week the government of both our game and our country will start to consider postponing the weekend’s match again.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said two days ago that the match would go ahead, but then since that quote yet more green and whites have fallen like flies amidst real uncertainty the match will play out.
Let’s face facts – this government and the SFA certainly have stronger leaning to the east than to Ibrox, and they certainly aren’t impartial, and as such we wouldn’t be at all shocked to hear Sturgeon and other high-ranking officials in the game considering whether or not the weekend’s fixture will go ahead or get pulled back.
Cases in Scotland are rising, albeit thankfully the mortality rate remains fairly low, but either way we fully expect over the next few days discussion in hushed rooms about the implications of this match going ahead and just how weakened Celtic are now likely to be.
We’ve heard a few comments from Rangers fans that they want to face a full-strength Celtic, and not beat a weak one.
We don’t disagree.
But we’re just curious if that chance is still going to be there come the weekend.
The not proven on Stevie was even a subtle clue – rather than appearing to focus sharply on that case, they gave up quick and are turning their attention and resources to Parkhead.
Will it get called off?
We wouldn’t be shocked if it did, now.
