When a good point is being made we don’t ignore it, even if it’s coming from a fan who likes to frequent Govan on a bi-weekly basis.
The fallout continues from the Glasgow Derby where ten men Celtic beat the Ibrox side 3-2.
The fingers have been pointed down Govan way – some saying individual players were at fault, others saying luck and the brain dead more focused on what Leigh Griffiths was up to.
However, Alistair posted this video yesterday after the game of the moment Celtic went down to ten men.
Instantly, Brendan Rodgers had his captain over on the touchline giving him his orders – letting him know the plans which were talked about in the event of a sending off.
Celtic quickly changed their shape and became a more solid unit. Rodgers tactical prowess paying dividends on this occasion.
Compare and contrast that clip to the one of Graeme Murty on the touchline trying to get his players to up their game minutes later.
It’s not every day one of your players being sent off works in a teams favour, but in this case, it certainly had a positive impact.

Murty was bereft of any more wisdom or tactical changes to use the extra man to their advantage. It doesn’t make him a bad manager, but it certainly shines a big light on his inexperience at this level.
