The weekend of the late goal

Sometimes you get a weekend where things just go wrong for all the teams you take an interest in. How about this one?

Queen of the South in desperate need of the points to drag themselves off the bottom of Scottish Division One are leading 1-0 until the 88th minute. Then they lose a goal to Airdrie United which means they fail to leapfrog them in the table.

Then, Fiorentina lead Milan with minutes to go and are about to perform a similar leapfrog manoeuvre when Gilardino strikes back to keep us behind the Rossoneri.

Finally, Celtic are winning the Old Firm game (should have been two up, usual cast-iron penalty turned down) when a deflected shot gives Rangers a share of the spoils. Probably the least painful one given the gap at the top of the table but still...

Sometimes I wish games were 87 minutes long.

Yes the Milan one was a sore one. Particularly interesting for us Celts that Gilardino seems to be finding form.

Things got worse from a Celtic perspective at the weekend with Milan bagging three against Udinese. It looks like their goalscoring problems may be gone.

No anti-Milan policy unless they are playing Fiorentina or unless they deserve it, honest.

Those late goals are hard to take no matter what team you follow.

You shouldn't have...
