Before anyone accuses me of being a hun sympathiser I’d like to disclose this statement first. I hate them with all my life. With a passion. We are everything they are not and I don’t need to start listing things as to why we are superior, bigger and just plain better than them. SAYING that. I don’t think that the results we both achieved tonight were either lucky or coincidental. It stems from each of us having a challenge off one another and therefore pushing each other to higher levels. Levels that are out of reach to normal clubs who don’t have the unique rivalry that we do. This won’t be a popular comment, but iv lived long enough and all over the world to see how Celtic and ‘them’ have a relationship, as toxic as it is, that no one else In world football has. Some of our fan base pretend that isn’t real. I look at it -coming from Scotland - as something to be immensely proud of. And that pushes us both to be better than we could ever be without that- the fans- the rivalry. You look at the fan base down south and even across Europe. Half empty stadiums on European nights. That would never happen to either of us. It’s been a great night for us tonight- of the best in a long long time. Is it any coincidence that it happened when our greatest rivals are finally throwing a challenge?
