Humility and humiliation

When Sevco got Celtic in the Scottish cup it is reported that Murty’s men were cheering at the prospect of facing the cup holders.

At the pre-match presser, Brendan Rodgers remained the assembled stenographers that “humility” was built into the Parkhead club.

Consequently, the cup holders would respect their opponents at Hampden.

Celtic did just that by preparing well for the match which was over as a contest by halftime.

This is what an epoch of unipolarity looks like.

The six-year-old club cannot live with Celtic on or off the park.

In the build-up to this match, there were some hilarious predictions despite a hillside of evidence to the contrary.

Such prescience…

What sorcery is this that these men can see so accurately into the future?

Oh dear…

However, back here on earth, any qualified football person that I spoke to this week had heavily backed Celtic to prevail on the day.

Before the Hoops had scored their fourth goal the Dunkirk Spirit was in evidence and the Quintessentially British end at Hampden was emptying.

I think now even some of The People are starting to realise that the Espanyol of Glasgow analogy has some basis in fact.

As Rodgers stated, Celtic approached this match with humility.

It was Sevco and their unfortunate customer base who have been humiliated today.

They really should become accustomed that that.
