Since reaching the pinnacle of world football at Tynecastle nine days ago a whole new chapter in the Banter Years has opened up.
For three full days the world was happy and glorious with Celtic’s Betfred Cup success over Aberdeen barely worth considering.
Mr Gerrard was back in his rightful place at the top of the world with the pressure starting to tell on Celtic.
To help the celebrations along a shop in St Enoch Square in Glasgow was opened with DVD sales going through the roof.

But then Aberdeen visited Ibrox, Scott McKenna scored and the wheels came off the wagon, Kilmarnock took their place at the top of the table, emerging as an insurance policy to stop 8-in-a-row.
At the weekend things got worse, much worse. Kris Boyd’s title hopes got trampled underfoot as the hoops hit top spot but a 4-0 win at Dundee the next day would reassure the good folk of Kilwinning, Bearsden and Larkhall.
True Blue Kenny Miller then intervened, a few weeks away from his 39th birthday he took the iron curtain defence apart and suddenly Mr Gerrard threw some of his signings under the bus.
Next stop for the Banter Years is Vienna on Thursday, all aboard!
