Thirteen more days to go until we see Celtic back in domestic duty again, and it feels like an eternity.
It seems like a long time ago at least since the loss to Rangers before the new year.
The fallout from that game has continued, with Ryan Christie being banned for grabbing Alfredo Morelos’s private parts, in that particular match.
Statement Wars were back when Celtic said, yesterday:
“Given the recent treatment of Celtic players and the lack of sanctions being imposed on those responsible, the fact that a sanction has been imposed on Ryan for the incident in question demonstrates a worrying lack of consistency in the Scottish FA fast track process.
”Naturally, we will be contacting the Scottish FA regarding our concerns. Scottish football deserves a disciplinary process which is fair, consistent and fit for purpose.”
I’m sure that’ll rumble on more this week.
Elsewhere, it looks like Scott Sinclair is finally off, with Preston favourites to land his signature.
The usual ‘in memoriam’ patter will be rolled out, and I’m going to keep my thoughts on him as a player to a minimum, because I can’t be annoyed being TARGETED by the Twitter CSC on what is, a brutal Tuesday morning as it is.
Simply - I’m sure he’ll be fine. He’s picked up a fine wage at us while underperforming for some time, he won’t be struggling and he’ll continue to make a living elsewhere.
Good luck to him, but we’ve moved on as a team and he’s justifiably out of the picture.
Come on, give me your hateful tweets lads.
