Ah, Kris Boyd. Thank goodness you were on punditry duties today at Ibrox as Celtic closed the gap on your beloved Rangers.

A victory for the Bhoys in Motherwell coincided with a dramatic draw in Govan as Hearts equalised late on to send the home fans away unhappy.

That feeling was not better captured than on the face of Kris Boyd who was buzzing in the 87th minute and visibly gutted three minutes later, as shared on social media in picture and video form.

Today was definitely a big one for Celtic and we should all take a breath to embrace the joy as it comes this season.

We’ve had plenty of bumps in the road recently and it’s always a brilliant moment when we win and they fail to, especially if both sides are playing at the same time.

There’s a nostalgic feeling wrapped up in all that, with Celtic and Rangers rarely facing off against opponents concurrently.

The Scottish Premiership is going to have lots of twists and turns this season. I’m banking on neither of the Glasgow sides streaking away at the top of the table.

No doubt we will have our own glum days ahead, but let’s relish this one while we can and look forward to a cracking match against Ferencvaros on Tuesday afternoon.

These Celtic fans have taken to social media today to share in the fun of the Sky Sports moment that’s going viral…
