All step-overs and no end product- Celtic duo kill off Keevins’ doom mongering within hours

Hugh Keevins’ latest forecast of doom for Celtic was up in smoke within 12 hours of being released. 

On Day One of the SPFL season the veteran broadcaster tipped Ange Postecoglou’s side to finish the season in third place with Aberdeen beating the hoops into second spot, currently the Dons are 49 points behind the league leaders. 

Yesterday’s offering from Keevins was full of highland warnings, references to costly past visits to Ross County and Inverness Caley Thistle with doubts over Celtic’s ability to see the job through. Another Helicopter Sunday was eagerly awaited.

Two players in particular came in for criticism, apparently Liel Abada and Jota are experts at showy step-overs with no end product- just wait till Keevins turns his attention towards Ryan Kent. 

On Sunday morning Keevins informed Daily Record readers: 

Jota and Abada have dipped in form up front as well and there’s now a question mark against the Portuguese in particular.

Is the appetite to pay Benfica £6.5m to get Jota signed on a permanent deal still as strong as it was earlier in the season?

At the moment he’s all step-overs and no end product.

Abada is all step-overs and poor decision making when it comes to his final delivery. 

Time to step up, not step over, for the pair of them. 

They certainly stepped up yesterday.

For the record, Jota scored his eighth SPFL goal yesterday on his 26th appearance, including three off the bench. 

Abada was heavily involved in the build up, with 10 goals from 33 appearances, 10 as a substitute the 20-year-old can be well pleased with his first season in Scottish football. 

With a six point lead and four matches left to play there looks like there is little prospect of a Helicopter Sunday unless Neil Doncaster is going to get airborne in six days time.

    How did this clown Keevins earn a living as a sports writer, we’re talking about two young bhoys, not even close to being at their peak, the lads stats are amazing, and have been a big contribution, to what was supposed to be a transition season.

  • Scud Missile says:

    Is there any particular reason for Spew Heevins still to be in a job,every prediction he gets wrong. Aberdeen for 2nd place more like 2nd bottom,there is not one team out of the 12 in the league that he has predicted to finish in the correct place.
    It’s time for him to chuck it give in and just retire.

  • Scud Missile says:

    You wonder when he is going to write an article on the stuntman for Messi,Ryan Kent because Clarke Kent he ain’t.

  • harold shand says:

    It’s like each game goes by where we win bringing us closer to the title no one gave us a hope of winning his bitterness increases x100 .

    Have you ever noticed he constantly targets and slates our foreign players ?

  • Thomas Duris says:

    Hugh Keevins is just a mouth piece for the hun media remember the “Not won a treble with no Sevco in the league is embarrassing” then we win 4 with Sevco in the league and then attacks celtic and Neil Lennon the guy is a embarrassment he is to media what liquidation is to Rangers!

  • Tony B says:

    Poor auld demented dodderer Spew Heavins; football “journalism’s” answer to Father Jack.

    “Are those MY feet?”

  • Paddybhoy67 says:

    Just call him Keevins – he hates it when we call him Keevins. In my mind it’s marginally better than calling him a bag of sh*te, but there ye go.
