The Super Scoreboard phone-in on Radio Clyde rarely disappoints as they dig out callers to air the most bizarre theories.
Celtic’s 9-0 win at Dundee United was more than just a festival of goals, it was a celebration of passing and movement, of relentless. Everything that Ange Postecoglou has preached since he arrived at the club.
Eight goals were scored between the 40th and 81st minutes with no sclaffs, deflections or penalties involved. There was movement, variety, imagination and devastating finishing.
That proved too much for one caller who came up with the bizarre claim that at four or five nil Celtic should have eased up rather than humiliate their young opponents.

Caller: Why carry on to 9?
Gordon Duncan: Sorry, so you mean that Celtic should have deliberately stopped scoring?
Caller: Well, I wouldn’t say stop scoring but let Dundee United play
GD: Why? Why?
Caller: It’s a game of football is it not…………..Why score the nine goals and humiliate these young lads, you know
The competition is called the Scottish PROFESSIONAL Football League, in it players are paid, they get bonuses for winning, they play to win with prize money on offer at the end of the season.
Every player in every game goes out with the same intention, anything less would be cheating the public.
