Much is made of the Scottish game but winning 7 in a row is a fantastic feat at any level !!!

I’m sick of hearing the same old tired comments about the Scottish Premier leagues standard,especially from failed English footballers like Robbie savage and joey barton….

The later actually played in scotland alough not many can recall his short period here because he was found out to be of poor quality and the only thing that he was known for was his loudmouth … and Twitter feed ….

Savage on the other hand is constantly found wanting during any analysis of the Scottish game and luckily enough we have a former player from Celtic Chris Sutton to shut him down …..

Now to compare the 2 leagues directly wouldn’t make sense, the Scottish Premiership and the EPL are night and day apart when it comes to finances so obviously they can attract the big players …

But out-with Manchester City,Chelsea,Liverpool,And maybe Manchester Utd , the English Premiership is mediocre, most of the games are really quite boring to watch , considering the money available to them the product on the park is actually of a low standard ..

So for pundits from England to slag of the Scottish league which is operating on peanuts but actually produces more exciting games is crazy …

I think a lot of the negativity comes from jealousy,First off theirs no English clubs could get near to winning 7 in a row , the Scottish Premier league operates without the big finance on a even playing field , no matter the teams …

English clubs at the bottom of the EPL are handed up to 40 million at the start of a season just for competing, Scottish clubs are lucky to get 750.000 and that’s at the top …

Let’s take money out of the argument for a minute , and look back to the early eighties and nineties , Scottish Clubs we’re very successful both domestically and in Europe with Celtic , Aberdeen And Dundee Utd competing very well against their English counterparts..

It wasn’t until the big money came into the English game that the gap appeared , in spite of the millions Celtic have continued to be a thorn in English sides in Europe , Take Manchester City only last year 3-3 , Also Liverpool , Manchester Utd to name others all have played Celtic and struggled…

So in spite of their millions of pounds Celtic playing in a supposedly weaker league have matched them and beaten them at times , I think that sais more about the standard of the EPL than our own league here in scotland…

The main point though is the fact Celtic football club is going for their 7 th title in a row , under any circumstances that’s a fantastic achievement, to be able to compete in over 250 football matches and have the concentration and will to win against all that’s put in front of you is truly amazing …

In closing I’d rather know my football team achieved great things without financial aid from the ruling Body , most of the big leagues in Europe are funded so much that it’s not a level playing field , their can’t be much satisfaction knowing the only reason you won was because you had the millions of pounds to aid you …

In a few weeks Celtic will complete 7 in a row and possibly a back to back treble , in any competition that’s astounding , they should actually get some kind of award for that alone HH


ONWARDS TO 10 ….
