Celtic fans pile in on serial loser David Tanner

David Tanner was left clutching the fig leaf of 55 after suffering through Celtic’s title triumph at Kilmarnock.

With no images shared it seems that TalkSPORT’s Scottish football expert decided not to travel to Rugby Park, instead sharing the pain from his Morningside man cave.

The Continuation Lie spun the myth of ‘Going for 55’, now less than a decade after Mark Warburton led the Tribute Act into the top flight Celtic are on the verge of claiming that pointless milestone.

After the first season in the top flight ended with a third placed finish and the sack for Warburton, Tanner suffered the same fate from Sky Sports.

No longer would he be leading the Brains Trust alongside Neil McCann and Charlie Nicholas presenting Scottish football to the nation. Since then Tanner has floundered from gig to gig, even presenting Hibs TV, without his autocue his career has declined almost as rapidly as his favourite football club.

Tomorrow Celtic will be officially crowned as champions of Scotland, for the 54th time with none of them shared with Dumbarton, all creditors have been paid including HMRC and face painters.

Without doubt we are living through a golden period of Celtic success although Tanner and other media cheerleaders like McCann, Kenny Miller, Kris Boyd, Stuart McCall and Lee McCulloch may think differently. The once cosy option of a career in the media no longer carries the same appeal.

The Roll of Honour over whatever time line you wish is awesome, whether it is 18 title wins in 24 years, five trebles in less than a decade, 12 titles out of 13 or three-in-a-row. Champions Again in any language.

There was massive media investment in Mister Clement, he has fallen short and now faces upto the consequences, the fawning coverage will be toned down going into a long summer of hurt and recrimination.

Tanner can fake interest in Scotland and the European Championships but the clock is ticking down with the former Sky Sports man knowing the dreaded number that he could well be discussing next season.
