Never saw last night's game but by all accounts it was an excellent performance and makes you wonder where it was during during games against Aberdeen and Kilmarnock recently. Defoe on the scoresheet which will do his confidence the world of good especially as he looks to be the main striker with Morelos out for another 3 games. On to Motherwell on Sunday & hopefully the same level of display.

Morelos is a liability Leo. Rangers played better after he was sent off on Sunday. Defoe will always score goals and the bonus is that he's unlikely to get sent off every month.

Well that was a decent game yesterday away to Motherwell, a very professional performance and pleasing on the eye. Surprisingly Celtic only drew at home against Livingston on Saturday, not that it makes any difference as to where the title will be going, which allowed Rangers to close the gap by two points but more importantly imo, to keep the 8 point lead we have over Kilmarnock and Aberdeen. As it turned out Motherwell were poor and we came away with all 3 points thanks to a 0-3 victory courtesy of a hat trick from Scott Arfield who had an excellent game. Although he didn't score, Defoe played well and beautifully set up Arfield for his 3rd in the second half rather than being greedy and chancing a shot. I doubt that Morelos would have passed to Arfield if he had been in that position. Hopefully Defoe retains the position after Morelos' ban is up in two games. Unfortunately once again off field antics were to the fore again due to the group of Motherwell fans who congregate at the far end of their stand next to the away end. A lighter, coins and a bloody scotch pie were thrown at James Tavernier as he was going to take a shy. Arseholes who don't deserve the title of supporters. And as usual Police and stewards were too late in appearing which I really don't understand as it is always this area these clowns congregate at. On a personal note the result was excellent for me as I had a nice bet on over 2.5 goals.

The day previous was the Edinburgh derby at Tynecastle which Hibs won 1-2 and before the game even started Hearts arseholes threw a flare on to the pitch and this was replicated by Hibs idiots who threw a green one on.....accompanied by a coconut ffs! Sections of the football community up here are going mad. This has been a very bad season for idiotic behaviour in the stands and someone is going to end up seriously hurt unless some positive action is taken at the time. The item throwing at Tynecastle was quite ironic actually as prior to the game it had been said on radio that searches for illegal items would be stepped up before entry was allowed. Not stepped up enough it seems!
