Celtic

Pedro’s sacking has killed Aberdeen’s challenge

I really hope that Derek McInnes goes to Sevco this week, I hope Milne kisses him goodbye and tells his fans to do moving on and appoints a youth coach or journeyman to run the Pittodrie club.

We have seen Aberdeen consistently be the second strongest team in Scotland for the last 4 years.

The first year of the Newco they finished 8th managing just 48 points, in 2013-14 they climbed to 3rd, then in 2014-15 they came second amassing 75 points, they have been second ever since, until yesterday.

The next time Aberdeen will be above Rangers on the table will be in the offseason when the clubs are listed in alphabetical order, they are in free fall.

Over the last 4 years, we have seen Aberdeen strive to be a force in Scottish Football, there is talk of a new stadium and training facilities, they have balanced their budget and built a team that has kept the pressure on Celtic.

Last year they made two cup finals and came second in the League, the year before it took Tom Rogic’s wonder strike at Kilmarnock in injury time to prevent them taking the lead in the Premiership in March.

This year they have been neck and neck with Celtic until Pedro was sacked and the media went to work, now they are 7 behind and it may as well be 17, they are no chance of winning the Premiership this year.

McInnes is an inherently flawed coach with scar tissue against Celtic, if he moves to the Newco the hatred that Aberdeen have for the Ibrox team will redouble, he will have no easy games there either.

Sevco is buying not only the best of the rest they are buying a tried and true manager to secure second best, it is what he specialises in.

Celtic have nothing to fear from McInnes, to the contrary, we can look forward to more of the same, a new war chest, a new squad and a new load of guff spouting on about being the people and having a squad that is simply the best.

Any other narrative just wouldn’t do.
