Going to the wire

Thankfully I'm staying in a household with Setanta tonight, so I will be able to see the climax of the Scottish Premier League season - Celtic away to Dundee United and Rangers to Aberdeen, both needing victory and the other to fail to grab the title. Personally, I hope that United and the Dons win the day and leave the big boys/bhoys red faced. With a larger than usual audience watching, it would be good if people saw that the SPL had a bit more to it than the Old Firm, dominant as they are. Supporters and onlookers alike will also be mindful of the sad loss of Tommy Burns (pictured) , one of the greats of the Scottish game, whose funeral took place a couple of days ago. Back in 1981, I recall, he won Celtic the title at Tannadice. It will be interesting to see if history echoes to that one.
