Celtic soak up the sun but the atmosphere’s been considerably more chilly in the last seven days on social media

Let’s not mess around.

You’re here for the Staunch Penguin, Bobby Madden paranoia and Celtic in Dubai.

That’s your main, but Scottish football also served up some delicious starters. I’d recommend the four-minute John Hughes.

Take a seat at Queen of the South’s gigantic table and tuck in to the last seven days of Scottish Football Twitter.


With the fuss over George ’34-year political career overshadowed by the cat thing’ Galloway’s Queen of the South cameo not settled by the club’s original apology, the Doonhamers offered up an apology for the apology and a picture of a big table as a peace offering.


The club’s Twitter account was somewhat more upbeat the following day.


Four minutes of pure, unadulterated Yogi. You’re welcome.


Richard Foster’s jumper wasn’t the first controversial choice for the Sportscene couch.



“I tell you, he has absolutely taken that cup o’ kindness there”.

Staunchness never rests.

Seriously, it NEVER rests.

Staunch Penguin Loyal.


Celtic dominated the first 45 minutes against Rangers.

The second half, not so much.

At least the fans took it well.

Pinch of salt and all that.

At least some people appreciated Bobby Madden (and Peep Show).

Celtic headed off for a trip that absolutely no-one could have predicted causing any controversy whatsoever.

Livingston’s 3-0 win at Easter Road meant Celtic weren’t the only ones heading off on Saturday.


Anyone disappointed by the lack of violence in Saturday’s game was in for a treat the following day.

Seriously, just scroll through it until you get to the fist.

Things could have been tastier at Ibrox had Bobby Madden not intervened.

Taking a break in Dubai during a pandemic while 19 points behind in the title race is the clearest confirmation yet that Celtic are entering their own Banter Years.

Especially when you consider the photos that emerged. The date on which the photos were taken has not been confirmed, but you can’t just wait for confirmation when there is patter to be had.
