Aberdeen’s moment of madness the turning point for 7 in a row

The last week has been an emotional one for us all with European hopes leading to exponential blame, and domestic fear, to renewed belief.

It was all on a knife edge, Celtic clinging to a one-goal lead away to Aberdeen, Mikael Lustig had been sent off and our 9 point lead looked precarious.

You could hear ever Walter Mitty Sevco fan getting their crayons ready for another assault on Twitter, the same old guff about enjoying the chase and going for 55 was about to be spouted on blogs, Vlogs and in accounts with WATP and or 1690 in the handle.

Then Moussa strode purposefully downfield and picked out KT with an inch-perfect pass, the thundering strike was driven in at the near post and the game could have tamely petered out to an inevitable conclusion.

But then Sam Cosgrove decided to do the stupidest thing anyone could attempt in Scottish Football, he tried to take Broony out.

No sooner was Brown smashed, lunged at and then had a ball drilled into the back of his head by Shay Logan, than the Skipper got up, flexed his muscles and revved up the traveling fans with a bit of pure theatre that will be written into Celtic folklore.

Like his celebration against Diouf, this one will long be replayed when the Skipper finally retires.

The good news on that is that it will be after 10 in a row, Broony has quit the national set-up and who can blame him.

Play under McLeish until he jumps ship when they sack Murty next Christmas or focus on leading the club to glory where he is rightfully being hailed as a legend.

A lot of Celtic fans were calling for heads before the trip to Pittodrie, with even Brendan’s name being mentioned within the recriminations.

Now with Wegner on the outer at Arsenal and the Londoners chasing a proven gaffer, those same fans will be demanding we do not let Rodgers go.

The 3 points we won away were priceless, but Cosgrove’s moment of madness has released the passion in our Captain, team and our support.

We should expect 3 points vs Dundee tomorrow before once again taking over the Broomloan and braving falling debris.

Scott Brown will lead us in both of those games, leading a team chasing immortality.

The double treble and 7 in a row are very much alive, any team with Scott Brown in it doesn’t look like losing in Scotland anytime soon.
