Barrie McKay has warned Celtic that Sevco will push Brendan Rodgers side until the last day of the season for the SPFL title.
The terrifying message was sent out after Sevco cut the gap at the top of the table down to just eight points which could be overcome if they win all three remaining games against Celtic and the hoops lose their three games in hand.
McKay was on the scoresheet yesterday in the 2-0 win over Hearts as the Edinburgh side paid the price for avoiding liquidation and only paying out for players that they can afford.
“No one here believes the title is gone,” the Sunday Post reports McKay as saying. “It’s not over till it’s over. We will push it to the last day.
“We go into every game looking to win. At this club, the fans expect you to win too, no matter the league you are playing in. Wherever we go we need to make sure we get those wins.”
With that warning ringing in their ears Rodgers will have to lift his squad to face Hamilton Accies on Tuesday night as they face a make or break spell of three home matches in eight days.
Any slip up is bound to be pounced on with young Baz showing the power of mind games with the sort of quotes that Jose Mourinho or Arsene Wenger would be proud of.
With Sevco’s back-to-back wins over Aberdeen and Hearts you really have to wonder what those clubs are about as they budget for the season then see the possibility of success being reduced by a club that has a going concern in their accounts and soft loans totalling close to their turnover.
