Obviously the last game at Kilmarnock was a blip.  Also it means they can’t trot out the “last time Kilmarnock beat Celtic was…” and you think – “that run’s got to end some time!!!”  So three goals to the hoops seems a common amount, but then again our two away fixtures this season have finished one nil to the Celtic.  Mmmmm

Another bet for those who don’t take life too seriously;

Paddy Power are famous for their Papal betting having been the first ever bookmaker to offer odds on the next Pope, even opening up a world famous bookie’s stall in St Peter’s Square when Benedict was appointed in 2005. Francis Arinze of Nigeria is currently a hot 2/1 favourite to succeed Benedict to become the next Pope.
