S8E42 A Lions Tribute

We’re one John down this week but Krys is back.

We start off with a special tribute to Lisbon Lions Billy McNeill and Stevie Chalmers, who lost their lives to dementia this week. The tribute features interviews with former Celtic player Billy Stark and Broadcaster Ally Begg, who was a presenter on Celtic TV.

The topic moves nicely onto Premiership action and it was fitting that Celtic’s No.5 scored the only goal of the game on 67 minutes to claim victory over Kilmarnock, which takes them to within a point of the title. Rangers clinched second with an easy win at home to Aberdeen, whilst the Edinburgh derby ended in a 1-1 draw.

At the bottom, Dundee look doomed after a last minute loss to Motherwell, whilst both St Mirren and Hamilton snatched late draws to move them closer to safety, though one will end up in the Premiership playoffs.

Ross County sealed Championship promotion in style, Falkirk need a minor miracle to avoid dropping out of the Division whilst Queen of the South, Alloa and Partick Thistle are still fighting to avoid the bottom two places.

In League One, Montrose kept their ambitions of back-to-back promotions alive by securing a playoff place. It’s a straight shootout between Brechin and Stenhousemuir to avoid automatic relegation, Barry Smith’s side need a win or they will suffer consecutive relegations.

Peterhead missed out on clinching League Two by conceding a 93rd minute goal to Stirling Albion, whilst Clyde kept up their slim chances of clinching the title with victory over Queens Park. Albion Rovers completed the great escape with an emphatic win over Berwick Rangers, who are consigned to the playoff to avoid dropping out of the SPFL set up. They are likely to face Cove Rangers, who won 2-1 in East Kilbride in the first leg of the League Two playoff.
