BBC Pundit and former Ibrox striker Stephen Thompson has admitted due to the lacklustre performances and drop in the level of performance, Celtic’s season will seem ‘underwhelming’ if they don’t clinch the double treble.
In his Scotsman article that actually hits some valid points on where Celtic are at compared to last season with regards to individual players and the hangover, some seem to have from the invincible run.
However, his notion that the gap is somehow closing is wishful thinking and to say a double would be seen as underwhelming as a whole is ludicrous but it’s where we’re at in punditry these days. Anything other than perfection and Celtic will be hammered for not delivering.
Thompson wrote: ‘As ridiculous as it may sound in normal circumstances when a team is in the position that Celtic are at this stage of the campaign, there is an argument to say that if they do fail to deliver the Scottish Cup and the treble, their season may be perceived to have been somewhat underwhelming.’
Do you agree?
