Along with Rangers bottling it after the winter break, there’s few things more certain than Celtic just turning up at McDairmid Park and running amok for a laugh.
It’s happened for a long time now and last night was no exception as Celtic ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over a team that I am open in showing nothing but disdain.
Neil Lennon’s side were in superb form as they raced into a three goal lead in the first half with Ntcham, Forrest and Griffiths all on the scoresheet.
While we were excellent, it’s very fair to say that St Johnstone, yet again, were a massive joke and offered absolutely nothing as always, ensuring the game fizzled out without any incidents or flashpoints. They couldn’t even start taking bodies, and refused to work themselves into a shoot.
They are, comfortably, the most pointless team in our league and one day we’ll never have to bother playing them on a regular basis.
‘But what about Hamilton?’ I hear you cry. Hamilton, to their credit, are survivalist in nature and you know what you’re getting. They know what they are and never hide it, and will occasionally muster a shot on goal, or give us a game once in a while.
The pleasure I take in seeing us just crush this tiresome side year after year fills me with glee, but knowing it’s already going to be another three points before a ball is kicked means I never do a shoot prediction against these idiots.
Speaking of Hamilton, we’re playing them on Sunday and I bet it’ll be a far trickier game than last night, although I think we’ll still be fine.
I’m always right, and I’ll back that up with another correct shoot prediction ahead of the match.
