CELTIC comfortably beat Steven Gerrard’s men on their own turf on Sunday after two months of intense Ibrox propaganda from some in the mainstream media.
It was a crash, bang and wallop back down to earth for the moon units who inhabit a space on this earth somewhere between entitlement and delusion.
I know, they should be used to getting beat by Celtic these days but this one was a shock to their system. If you think it wasn’t – you just have to look at how one of their own players reacted after the second goal went in. Jordan Jones flew in with the intent to hurt a fellow professional. No ifs, no buts, no maybes; Jones sole purpose was to do damage to a Celtic player and perhaps put him on the sideline.
What he did instead was go over on his own leg and leave Ibrox on crutches.
As a Celtic fan, I do very much believe karma woke up in 2012 and has been pretty unrelenting since. Jones now faces months out injured as a result of his thuggish act according to SunSport.
The attack on Mortiz Bauer at Ibrox was a manifestation of two months of hardcore, staunch, unadulterated, brown brogue sniffing hype and the sobering realisation that even with Celtic having three derby debutants in defence and a midfielder to join them – they still couldn’t lay a glove on us. Jones lashed out and he got exactly what he deserved.
As I look back at the game, I smile. Eddy’s cool as you like goal, Jonny Hayes of all people putting the final nail in the coffin and the fantastic visual of Scott Arfield hanging on to Ntcham’s coattails for dear life as the Frenchman forged ahead. It was delicious.
Get well soon Jordan Jones.
