Celtic fans couldn’t believe what they were hearing last night when Radio Clyde’s Super-Scoreboard programme took a call from Jim in Aberfoyle.

The early evening show isn’t known for its deep thinking and high-brow conversations and is better known for giving a platform for angry fans to explain their deepest suspicions and conspiracies.

Last night set a new benchmark as the phone-in discussed today’s SPFL vote to decide the three lower divisions based on average points won per game.

Using the same formula in the top flight would give Celtic the title with a 2.67 score compared to the 2.31 of Steven Gerrard’s men.

That sort of logic was a bit tricky for Jim to get his head around so he suggested a bizarre compromise.

Fair enough, Celtic can have the title based on their 13 point lead with eight matches left to play but to even things up and keep the peace the SPFL place in the Champions League qualifiers would go to Gerrard’s team!

Host Gordon Duncan and experts Gordon Dalziel and Mark Wilson paused for a few seconds. Jim didn’t hesitate, he explained his reasoning as the effect of constant Celtic success was made obvious to the thousands listening in.
