Ever since the Ross County nightmare,Neil Lennon has done all that has been asked of him in his time in charge of the football club even winning against their oldest rivals in the process.
While the last Old Firm match was never a classic,it did have a bit more bite and fight about it than some of the previous encounters this season.
Rangers of course already had the title wrapped up and much as it pains me to say it they have deserved it this season,even though Celtic have not been anywhere near their best this season it cannot take away from the fact that Rangers and all their off the field problems are the champions this season.
Hopefully the players who remain at Celtic next season will show the same passion and fight from the off instead of waiting till the season is over to start performing!
I must admit I was not surprised that the game had a bit more bite in it even though many played it down as a meaningless match but not our lovely media.
It was Novo's fault him and his big mouth! no it was Kamara's fault telling Novo to shut it! No it was Hinkel's fault saying he thought Celtic were better than Rangers....what was going on?
This off the field spat seemed to carry on to the pitch as some of the tackles left a lot to be desired but it was a good old fashion Old Firm match and that is the way we like it!
Naylor opened the scoring after a deflected free kick got passed Neil Alexander after Allan McGregor was injured after twisting his knee coming for a corner,could this be the last Old Firm game for Rangers headline grabbing goalkeeper?
Celts had their tails up but could not put Rangers away and it was no surprise when former Celt Kenny Miller planted a header into the corner of the net leaving Boruc helpless and sending the away support back into party mood.
Celtic would not be denied and Fortune headed the home side back in front as Alexander somehow let the ball squirm through his legs to let Celtic gain the advantage before the break.
That may have been the end of the scoring but not the end of the talking points as Celtic's number one Artur Boruc made his way off after blocking a Kenny Miller shot and he later found out he had two broken fingers-will this be the big goalie's last game for the Hoops?
Seville are reported to be ready to swoop with a £2 million bid-lets hope not!
It was fast,it was frantic,9 bookings and one red card for McCulloch for a late lunge on McGeady,it was his trailing leg which caught the Celtic winger,no dive people!
Celtic had got some pride back Lennon style and although it was only 3 points,it was 3 points for Celtic and a small bit of bragging rights for the Hoops but no trophy!
Just when we thought that it had all calmed down,cue the managers pressers and boy did we not expect some of those comments from both managers but they both care for their clubs and there is nothing wrong with that!
Many a question will be asked by the Celtic fans over the summer or indeed the next few days after the last SPL match away to Hearts as the season finally and thankfully draws to a close.
The biggest question of them all is of course who will get the Celtic managers job?
Neil Lennon has put a strong case foward to be given the job on a full term basis and many fans will say,give him the job now!
There are plenty of factors that should be taken into account before the next manager is appointed as this is a major appointment by the Celtic board and they simply cannot afford to get it wrong!
If rumours are to be believed,then six names are in the frame for the managers job but only two have come out as front runners,Neil Lennon and Craig Levein.
I would be really shocked if Craig left his post as Scotland manager after only one game to go to Celtic Park and I don't think the SFA or the Tartan Army would take too kindly to their boss walking out after only one game in charge.
I just wonder if Celtic would ask the SFA if Craig could do the job on a part-time basis?
I can't see it myself but the former Dundee United manager does have a good manner and is a first class coach but the big question is would he sell season tickets?
Speaking to a few Celtic fans I know,they have said they would prefare Neil Lennon rather than any of the other names mentioned but I wonder if a former manager may be on his way back to finish some unfinished business that he has at Celtic Park?
As I say I have spoken to many fans on a daily basis Iain,Tommy,John,Joe,Stevie,Andy and many others who have their opinion on who they would like as the new boss and even as Iain and I sat at Celtic Park among the huge 2,000 odd crowd (I think there was more like 30,000 there) we still could not agree who we thought we be the best man for the Celtic job!
Neil does tick all the boxes except for his lack of experience and the Ross County farce will not go down well with the board!
Both Old Firm team will make for interesting reading when the season starts as I think many of the players who pull on a green and white shirt at Tynecastle on Sunday,may do so for the last time.
Whoever does come in will have a huge task ahead of them and the new Celtic and their management team will need to hit the ground running or Rangers just may run away with another title.
Before I go,congratulations to the Celtic Youth side who won the League and Cup Double beating Rangers 2-0 at Hampden in front of 7,500 on the same night that the first team lost a rearranged friendly match 2-1 v AZ at Celtic Park and thanks to Iain for the meal and ticket,very much appreciated mate,next time I'll bring my boots!
As Celtic head to Tynecastle on Sunday,many players will be glad to see the end of the season but also it may well be in the end of their Celtic careers,a new chapter is about to begin at Celtic,exciting times ahead,testing times ahead,a time for calm and cool heads and no rash movements or decisions,the board know they will have 60,000 sets of eyes watching their every move,make your move but make sure-for your sake it is the right one!
