Another win. Is a miracle in the offing?

Skippy McDonald's expression says it all. When Celtic lost to Motherwell at home earlier this month, it truly seemed as if the championship run was over. But now that the Bhoys have beaten the strangers twice in 10 days, including the 3-2 win at Parkhead yesterday after Skippy scored the brace and then won the penalty kick that Barry Robson fired home for the winner, the Hoops are back on top.

And don't remind me that the blue have three games in hand and are only down by five points. I know all that, but the fact of the matter is also that the strangers and their fans need to deal with their REAL problems, that they could have put this thing away at Parkhead twice, but did not. Now, the Bhoys, who seemed so completely out of it after the Motherwell debacle, are in their heads and stomping around in there having a grand old time! And if the title run is truly over, then that's the way it is. We'll at least have April and my Celts will definitely NEVER walk alone.

(Now if only Dynamo can have someone like Skippy step up now that they're coming home to play a damaged las chivitas. If Celtic can ride this to another title then there's hope for us all!)
