One Celtic fan had a £70 consolation from today’s Derby Day misery.
Bet building is a fairly new concept but allows punters to put together any type of bet- far from the usual first scorer and scoreline double.
After 11 matches without scoring against Celtic there were two options for Alfredo Morelos. Was he overdue a derby day goal or would the run continue?

The Colombian had half a dozen efforts at goal, four minutes into the second half he seemed certain to score but blasted wildly over at the back post with the goal at his mercy.
Half of the bet looked a certainty, finally in the 84th minute Kevin Clancy produced a yellow card for a foul on Scott Brown.
In stoppage time it all kicked off as the 14/1 bet came in. Morelos dived in the penalty box, Clancy didn’t hesitate and off went Morelos.
His gestures and antics could bring about further punishment than a one match ban but as the final whistle blew one Celtic fan had the consolation of a saver bet.
