Chris Iwelumo believes Celtic should give Rangers a guard of honou when the Old Firm derby takes place at Celtic Park on March 21.
Celtic failed to beat Dundee United on Sunday afternoon, leading to the championship to be confirmed and that number 55 will be heading home to Ibrox.
It has been a bitterly disappointing season for those on the green side of Glasgow and they are surely dreading seeing the Gers line up at Celtic Park as champions.
In a move that is sure to be unpopular with fans Iwelumo paid tribute to the Light Blues and proposed that the players should honour the visitors.
After witnessing the scenes outside the stadium on Saturday he told talkSPORT’s GameDay Exclusive show [11am, 07/03/21] : “It was ridiculous, I was up there working and driving past Ibrox, you’re thinking ‘woah’, it’s ridiculous.
“But you know what they’ve been outstanding.
“It pains me to say it as a Celtic fan, it pains me to say it but they have been on another level and I just feel Celtic can’t drop points today [Sunday, 07/03/21] because of the guard of honour.
“It’s optional but it would show a sign of class if Celtic drop points and applaud the champions.”
Bring it on
Who else is looking forward to that?
Can you imagine the fume from Celtic fans if their players give us a guard of honour?
They won’t hear the end of it for a good while and for good reason.
Their supporters have taken great pride in laughing at our difficulties over the last decade while they flexed their financial muscles to take advantage of an uncompetitive Premiership.
But now we’re back and have crashed their hopes of 10-in-a-row and it feels so sweet.
Credit to Iwelumo for recognising greatness, it can’t be easy to watch your club disintegrate and collapse in such a hapless fashion.
They might as well start practising the guard of honour this year because we think there is going to be plenty more coming in the next few years.
