Celtic were comfortable 5-2 winners at Fir Park at the weekend after surviving an early scare. Motherwell fans took the lead in the midday kick off and thought their club was going to continue their run against Celtic at their home ground.
With Motherwell having just scored, one overconfident Motherwell fan was heard over the Sky Sports microphones shouting ‘You’ve got him in your back pocket!’ as James Forrest advanced towards goal with Ajer on the overlap.
Seconds later you can heart the same fan audibly chant ‘Aw naw!’ as it turns out nobody was getting back pocket. A sublime pass from James Forrest sent Ajer through on goal and the Norwegian did not miss the mark with a striker’s finish.
It’s this sorta stuff that sets Scottish football apart at times. The fans can make the game as interesting as the players at times!
