Glasgow Celtic: A fish too big for its own pond
I watched an argument unfold on Facebook the other day regarding Celtic’s title triumph; an age old debate consisting mainly of Celtic fans and their disparagers.

I watched an argument unfold on Facebook the other day regarding Celtic’s title triumph; an age old debate consisting mainly of Celtic fans and their disparagers.

“Winning a two bit league. How can you get excited about that?” was the opening riposte to a Celtic supporter’s understandably proud status about his team’s 45th league win.

There seems to be an ignorance of the constraints Celtic are working under, and worse still, a jealousy of the club’s reputation as one of the biggest and best supported in world football, despite these constraints.

Celtic are both beneficiaries and victims of their own success and will continue to do so until there’s a seismic shift in the boundaries that keep the Scottish champions north of Hadrian’s Wall.

Until then, Celtic, much like Bayern Munich, will continue to dominate and suffocate a league that they’re just too powerful for.
