There’s no denying the behaviour coming out of Celtic Park (we’ll be nice) recently is aimed at only one thing – either stopping the Old Firm (yes guys, it’s a patented trademark) being played or finding some excuse to avoid doing a Guard of Honour.
Simply put their conduct has been atrocious, showing their indignity for what it is, and the hoohah they’ve made first with their protests, then with this shocking tweet of hypocrisy and threats of fan gathering on the 21st is designed to uproot the upcoming match between the two, and prevent further embarrassment to all things Celtic.
Let’s face it – their fans and their club is deeply embarrassed with itself, and the embarrassment caused it by a superior Rangers, and our outstanding manager Steven Gerrard.
And Celtic will do everything in their power to prevent the natural order of things flowing, and if they can’t stop the match itself from going ahead, they’ll definitely boycott a Guard of Honour.
Now, in a rare moment of fairness on Ibrox Noise towards our chums in the east, our manager rejected one for them at Ibrox too, so unlike them, if we’re hypocritical, we can at least introspect and declare it.
But they can easily be ‘the bigger club’ by giving a Guard of Honour – and it’s the last thing they appear to want to deliver.
Is it wrong? Was ours? Two wrongs don’t make a right, and if they want to redeem themselves this season, they’ll do one.
Rangers have destroyed Celtic this campaign, few of their fans would spin it differently – and a way for them to restore a little bit of dignity is by performing a Guard of Honour.
We will wait to see. If the match even goes ahead, that is…
