Celtic fans had a pleasing Wednesday night, despite Neil Lennon’s Bhoys being all tucked up with no match to play.
After the Hoops went out to Ross County in the Betfred Cup last month, there were fears that rivals Rangers might be the team to halt the Hoops’ run of consecutive domestic trophies.
.I’m sure you’ve heard by now but they’ve bottled it again, losing 3-2 away to St. Mirren.
No trebles for Kris Boyd and Neil McCann then, both of whom have been massive cheerleaders for the Ibrox club this term.
Boyd has been seen positively beaming on most Sky Sports broadcasts since the start of the season.
Not so, last night. And wasn’t it fun to see him in the Sky Sports News studio?
Celtic fans have their laughs
A variety of Boyd facial expressions were expertly capped by the social media brigade. It summed up the joy of the result and Rangers showing their first sign of weakness this term.

Celtic must focus
It would silly to spend too much time gloating about Rangers’ Betfred Cup demise of course. We’re out of the tournament as well!
However, we can allow ourselves a day of laughs after a long couple of months of patter firing from the opposite direction.
If you think Neil Lennon and his Celtic squad weren’t alerted by last night’s goings-on you are very much mistaken.
The Bhoys now need to put together a real winning run. If they do that, the coming upcoming derby at Ibrox could be very tasty.
This week could be the real start of Celtic turning things around.
