Dawn Of The Dread: Celtic raided by ‘Zombies’ as Rangers make move for 10th title

Zombies are rising from the dead in Glasgow.


Neil Lennon’s nightmare apocalyptic scenario started with Celtic’s loss in the Old Firm Derby – and he might not still be manager 28 Days Later, if current results continue.

Thursday felt like the Night of The Living Dead, and for once Celtic fans weren’t bemoaning the zombies from across town – but the walking dead wearing the green and white hoops.

Celtic’s horror season continues, with Sunday’s trip to Motherwell suddenly a potential Doomsday for manager Neil Lennon.

Having won just one of their last six games – including Thursday’s nightmare against Sparta Prague – Celtic find themselves nine points adrift of rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, with Steven Gerrard’s men now odds-on to be crowned champions.

In our terrifying footage zombies can be seen making away with silverware emblazoned with the number ten – although the significance of that number and Celtic’s season cannot be established at this time, as it’s not something they’ve ever mentioned before…

Eddie Howe has been trending on Twitter, and not just for his boy-ish good looks – the former Bournemouth boss, once linked with Arsenal and England, is our favourite to be next Celtic manager, having been backed in from 5/1 less than a week ago.
