Alex Rae must have been anticipating a happy and glorious appearance on Super Scoreboard tonight.
As the weekend approached he was counting towards an 11 point gap at the top of the SPFL table, Alfredo back among the goals and winding up the Celtic fans that have made his life such a misery over the last decade.
The key to success as a pundit is not to fall for the bait, not to get involved in mud slinging, to rise above the guy on the other end of the line. The pundit is getting paid, let the caller lose the rag as you wind them up, keep your cool and cash in your appearance fee while keeping tabs for HMRC.

Folk are going on about Rangers not scoring against Livi but with aw they world class players Celtic have they couldn’t score against Killie (1-1).
But Livi away changed it, for 95 minutes Rae agonised through the match as his heroes drew a blank.
The flashbacks were there, like back to back defeats from Hamilton and Hearts, the excuses from Mister Gerrard, the clichés from Tav and those gloating Selik fans on the phone trying to push him over the edge.
Rae knows that a re-run of last season is underway. All the cast are in place alongside that losing mentality. Worse days are ahead with Celtic supporters knowing exactly the buttons to push send the life long Ibrox fan over the edge.
