Hibs and Celtic served up a cracker of a game on Sunday afternoon, Hibs looked to be cruising at two nil with just over twenty minutes to go but Celtic hit back with a late flurry and could actually have won. I have to admit that it felt like a defeat but once home from the game and having a chance to think about it both teams had good chances. The referee did not cover himself in glory, he seemed to have left his red card at home as at least three players should have walked (two Celts and one Hibs).
Anyway an Ivan Sproule rocket had Hibs in front after 10 minutes and Kevin Thomson extended Hibs lead on the hour with a cheeky nutmeg of the keeper. Celtic hit back with two goals in four minutes from Sno and McGeady. Kenny Miller missed a one on one with the Hibs keeper before Glass hit row Z for Hibs with the last kick of the game.
I will have to watch the highlight on TV tonight as I'm sure Neil Lennon should have got a second yellow after clashing with Scott Brown. I would like to say more about Scottish referees but I know Eski Kanka Jim gets very protective of his old friends. I will restrict myself to saying Mike McCurry earned his biscuit tin vouchers on Sunday.
