The Celtic day started with news that Dedryck Boyata is close to completing his move to Hertha Berlin, a very healthy signing on fee should accompany his £40,000/week wages with very few Celtic fans showing any concern over the departure.
Ronny Deila, Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon rate the Belgian, as does Celtic ‘candidate’ Roberto Martinez, but there won’t be many shows of emotion either way at Sunday’s farewell.
On the manager front Claudio Ranieri had to compete with Chris Coleman and Sean Dyche for attention, no doubt a few more hats will be landing in the ring tomorrow.
‘We Did It By Playing Football’. Here it is, nearly 3 weeks graft on the men that gave us everything. I’ve had this in my head for so many years, to feel I’m at a standard to do them justice has made me really proud, not only of what I do but where I’ve came from ???????????????? #celticfc pic.twitter.com/316v6kbnMR

On the supporter side of things a brilliant Lisbon portrait emerged, so good that John Hartson opted to comment on it. There will never be a limit to the creative images to emerge from our greatest day.
Sunday at Ibrox won’t ever be rated as a great day, the stats of the 90 minutes make for especially grim reading for two of the starters.
Over on the dark side there has been no furious statements issued, just the usual fiction surrounding Fredo Morelos with Chris Sutton far from impressed by the translation of another Colombian interview from the red card specialist.
