Guard of honour for Saints

28 March 2013 06:36
Saints are set to receive a guard of honour from Celtic when the two sides meet in Paisley on Sunday following our League Cup triumph.

It is traditional for this sort of thing to happen after a team has won a trophy or pulled off a terrific result - I seem to remember us doing it to Inverness Caley Thistle after they first went ballistic. However, it seemed unlikely considering we were up against one of the Old Firm, who we'd also beaten in the semi-finals.

But Celtic boss Neil Lennon has confirmed today his team will indeed clap us onto the pitch on Sunday, which is a nice touch.

Another unwritten rule seems to be that after you've clapped your opponents onto the park you give them a good hiding. Hopefully they won't follow through on that part of the tradition!

In other cup winning news, it seems the DVD of the win over Hearts will be available tomorrow as planned.
