Celtic’s title celebrations went into full swing with a six-goal hammering of Motherwell.
There were a host of Hotline calls playing tribute to Ange Postecoglou and his players. But with a Europa League Final for Rangers looming, there were also some postcards from Seville.
Peter Lyons, Blantyre, said: “What an incredible day at Celtic Park, the emotion shown throughout the match was fantastic. I am now in my 60s and have supported this fabulous club for over 55 years and for all the trophies I have seen won, this in my opinion has been the best.
“It supersedes Wim Jansen stopping the 10-in-a-row and also our centenary Double. Now on to next season.”
Stephen Mulhern, Dumbarton, said: “From a season of despair to a season of delight. I’d like to thank Postecoglou for taking Celtic from second best to simply the best. I also hope Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers will stay, the after match celebrations on Saturday might have just clinched their decision to sign on.”
Lance Little, Erskine, said: “What a fantastic day of celebrations Saturday was. Having our trophy returned to us after a faultless 6- 0 final match was amazing. The celebrations in Glasgow after the game were even better. No rioting, no carnage, no broken benches. The fans gave a masterclass on how to celebrate properly.”
George Wilson, West Sussex, said: “There were only four points in it in the end. Celtic manipulated the fixtures by having games postponed after Christmas to allow their injured players to come back and new signings to come in. Rangers stumbled at this point and drew a few games having previously been on a good run. If the fixtures had remained the same I don’t think there is any doubt Rangers would have won the league.”
Gary Stevenson, Newtonhill, said: “I’m having a brilliant time here in Seville. I don’t think the other half of Glasgow would like it though as Spanish television only covers elite level football – no Dragons Den, Masterchef or The Repair Shop. I’m away for some more paella and sangria.”
Robert Livingstone, Palm Beach, said: “This is surely one of the most momentous weeks in the history of Rangers with two winner-takes-all games. It started well with a virtual reserve side that comprehensively beat Hearts and included stand-out performances from future stars Cole McKinnon and Alex Lowry.”
John Davidson, Armadale, said: “It was nice to see Gio van Bronckhorst giving youth a chance against Hearts in the last game of the season and the kids didn’t let him down. The future looks really good down Ibrox way.”
John Bruce emailed: “Hearts supporters must be demoralised after watching their team being comfortably beaten by a Rangers youth team. Even more so with Scotland’s player of the year being beaten three times by those kids and it being one week before facing Rangers’ first team in the Scottish Cup Final.
“Rangers fans will have been delighted at the first team debut of young Adam Devine and a man-of-the-match performance by Alex Lowry, along with three or four other strong performances from fellow starlets. Lowry is an exceptional talent and could possibly save Rangers from spending millions of pounds on a new player in the summer.”
Gordon Ferguson, Kilwinning, said: “Now that the sideshow is over and the title is back in the east end of Glasgow, let’s get on with the main event as Rangers can take Scottish football to a new high with victory in Europe. It’s time to show Rangers the respect they deserve. The Phoenix has risen – it’s time to become immortal Bears.”
Bruce Bayne, Carronvalley, said: “Can I urge Rangers to please help your fans with the shambles that is booking the fan zone stadium in Seville. Your lack of positive help for your loyal fans is shameful. There have been no updates, assistance, information or care.”
Alan Graham emailed: “Congratulations to Inverness for a real backs-to-the-wall performance on Friday in difficult conditions against Arbroath. It was not the greatest football display but a fantastic result. Dick Campbell said after the game that Christmas had come early for Inverness, but come on Dick, it was Arbroath that received the Christmas presents after two dreadful sending off decisions.”
