Misplaced Morose Delectation

  • Hibernian 3-2 Celtic
  • Finally got round to seeing the Scotsport highlights of the Hibs/Celtic game. As has been mentioned by others, despite the scoreline, Celtic played well and I don't think it was necessarily delusional sour grapes on Gordon Strachan's part when he said after the game that that was the best Celtic's played in Edinburgh since he's been at Parkhead.

    Of course Boruc's two mistakes were David James like in their clunkiness, but what was more cringeworthy was Boruc acting like a muppet towards the Hibs fans after McGeady's goal - making look like a total arse in the process when he later spilled that shot in the 87th minute to allow Shiels to toe poke the winner for Hibs - and Caldwell's gestures towards the Hibs fans when he scored Celtic's second equaliser. Barracked or not, it's always classier when a footballer playing against his one of his old club goes down the Robbie Keane road of not celebrating a goal against those fans who once sung your praises.
