Celtic vs Rangers could be cancelled.....


Recommended Posts

due to Scotland's latest round of lockdown measures.

Celtic, Rangers and the SPFL are facing an anxious wait to find out if the first Old Firm clash of the season will be given the green light by government chiefs.

The threat comes as government officials from the UK are meeting this morning to discuss fresh lockdown measures due to a sharp rise in coronavirus cases across the country.

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon yesterday warned the nation that 'additional restrictions' would almost certainly be put in place over the coming days.

And reports late last night suggested that a 'circuit-breaker' lockdown could be imposed over the upcoming October holidays.

Celtic welcome Rangers to Parkhead on the final weekend of the October break and the Daily Mail report this morning that government chiefs may see the match as a risk that is not worth taking.

The fear from public health officials is that supporters may gather in large numbers to watch the game on television - or attend the stadium before and after the match.

Nicola Sturgeon spoke yesterday, saying: “Any responsible government is looking at a whole range of options. We haven’t reached final decisions yet.”

........ and the choreography begins, Cosgrove will once again be dining in Gamba with Neil Doncaster. The Menus will be presented with the Peter script. Michael will be sick and tired of a certain club’s casual disregard for the future health of the nation. PQ’s Chris McLaughlin will do a piece to camera outside the Louden, Spiers will eat the boiled ham raw, and Jum Spence will show his strong suit. 
 

The real surprise here is Aidan Smith being handed the print responsibility, that’s usually the Daily Mail’s Stephen McGowan’s gig. Kevin’s started the ball rolling on Sunday.

A braindead rationale.

 

I suppose we will be waiting until about May to play between 4 and 6 old firm matches.

 

Alternatively we could just play the games when scheduled and all of the castrated bedwetters can fuck off back to Holyrood.
