Celtic Twitter followers woke up this morning to another Birthday Wish from the club- 10 years ago today The Broonie was born.
The Broomloan Road Stand erupted to celebrate an equaliser for the 10 men, Fraser Forster getting red carded as the home side were given an early penalty.
It was a daring and fearless display by rookie boss Neil Lennon in the dug out against the wily old fox Walter Smith with his prodigy, Ally McCoist on the opposite side.
Ten men weren’t deterred as they swarmed forward, pinning the home side back to earn a replay that was decided by a classic goal from Wilson.
This season there hasn’t been a Celtic performance that came close to that one at Ibrox a decade ago.
The team has lacked purpose, shape, belief and often fielded players short on fitness. The contrast is vivid
As corporate Celtic tries to put on a brave front for Social Media supporters are reminding the club of a message that they’d rather forget. In December a managerial review was promised in the new year, it seems to be a promise that they club would like to gloss over.
All sorts of birthdays have been celebrated in 2021 but the Celtic support isn’t being fobbed off. Until the fans stop getting treated with contempt the club is in danger of driving an even wider divide between themselves and their customers (fans). It will take a lot more than sharing birthday wishes with the #celticfamily to get the fans back onside.

I don’t think the guy running Celtic’s Twitter will be privy to that information ?

Would you mind stopping living in the past and maybe try and build towards the future. We are going backwards at an alarming rate.
Start playing like the real Celtic and we will be able to enjoy more moments like this
