Going for 55.
A well known saying in Scotland the past 4 years and like Rangers, Celtic were kept waiting but make no mistake, we could have went for 55 goals on Saturday
A mixture of good goalkeeping and extremely jammy Hibs luck stopped that from being double figures on Saturday. That said, Hibs could have scored 3 or 4 as well.
We started the game well and apart from a wee lull in both halves in which we let Hibs have a couple of chances, we were totally dominant and in Elyounoussi and Edouard we have two boys of the very highest level. Both players cost a combined total of £25 million so you would expect big things but they’ve still got to go and do it and both of them have been outstanding this season.
Amazingly, none of them were my MOTM, no, it was an 18 year old kid we got for £200,000 from Manchester City. Jeremie Frimpong, what an absolute wee star in the making. I think it speaks volumes that we haven’t missed El Hammed the last few weeks. Defensively I think we’ve seen enough to know he can handle himself now but going forward he’s bloody terrific, he also has an end product too which is rare for young players.
Scott Brown getting a double probably summed up how poor Hibs are to be honest thought him, Rogic and McGregor were superb in midfield though. Few people had written Rogic off but if managed correctly he’s a standout for us too.
Thought Madden handled the game well but obviously he missed the most blatant handball I’ve ever seen Eddy was also offside for the 2nd goal but I had to laugh at Heckingbottom slate the referees. That’s two games against Hibs and they’ve got away with 3 stonewall pens
Atmosphere was class, right reb fest mind you
Big final now but I’m very confident for it. We play well, we’ll win, simples.

Hibs 2 v 5 Celtic
