St Johnstone have done what Celtic couldn’t then.

They’ve knocked Rangers out of the Scottish Cup tonight after a dramatic penalties win at Ibrox.

It was a 0-0 stalemate until the last five minutes of extra-time when James Tavernier and Chris Kane scored for each team to send it to spot-kicks.

Despite Allan McGregor’s stellar campaign he couldn’t do enough to deny the visiting Perth Saints.

Now, we’re not really in a position to gloat. Celtic have been awful this season after all. Still, this is a rivalry and seeing Rangers lose is always a good laugh, especially in these circumstances.

I’m not too proud to fully admit I greatly enjoyed them going out!

Let’s hear it for the Celtic Invincibles


It’s even better when media, pundits and rival fans have been hyping up this Rangers side and comparing them to Brendan Rodgers’ Invincibles of the 2016/17 season.

That was the campaign we went unbeaten in the league and won both domestic trophies. Incredible and unprecedented success.

Celtic fans have known for a while the comparison isn’t valid. Rangers went out to St Mirren in the League Cup earlier this season, of course.

However, if they had won the Scottish Cup and remained undefeated in the league, no doubt the media hype would have been unbearable regardless.

St Johnstone have done us a bit of a favour here. The illusion has been shattered again and the Invincibles’ legacy remains intact.

Fantastic. We can enjoy the rest of the Scottish Cup now.

A missed opportunity for Celtic, of course, but a bit of schadenfreude is always OK in football.
