He’s featured in a derby twice at Hampden, and once at Celtic Park, and in all honesty, the biggest thing he’s done in a match is refuse to give Reo Hatate a drink of water, only for Morelos to hand the Celtic midfielder a bottle.

Looking back on the incident, the former Norwich midfielder was adamant that he was polite, and if the shoe were on the other foot, the same thing would’ve happened. Despite no one in the Celtic stream petty enough to even consider what TikTok Todd did.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s clash, the ultimate wee man, Todd Cantwell, said it was all part of the rivalry.

He said: [SunSport]

“Listen, I feel like you can’t really breathe wrongly up here and it makes the media.

“The way I look at it, if there was a player down and the physio had come on and I had gone over to Callum McGregor and asked for a drink of water, I can imagine what he would have said to me.

“I think I was quite polite, to be honest.

“It is a healthy rivalry between the clubs.

“They have come out on top this year, so I am in a position where I can’t really speak too much about things.

“I respect what they have done but, listen, next year that is where we want to be.

“We want to be up there ourselves and I was just reminding him that we are a team on our way.”

The ‘next year’ stuff is still continuing, and he reminded Hatate that ‘next year’ would be different by refusing him a drink of water.

It’s a baffling statement from Cantwell, but then again, it’s not surprising.
