Kris Boyd cardboard cut out makes it to Celtic’s title party

Chris Sutton made sure that Kris Boyd wasn’t forgotten about as Celtic collected the SPFL Premiership trophy for the third season running.

It has been another painful campaign for Sky Sports top pundit as he watched two Revolutions from Ibrox failing to prevent another title party in the east end of Glasgow.

All season long Boyd has been banging the drum for all things Ibrox but last week’s defeat in the Glasgow Derby killed off his hopes of seeing a trophy party inside Ibrox with fans present.

In a further twist of fate Boyd was on duty at Kilmarnock on Wednesday night when the title was officially clinched with an emphatic 5-0 victory over the Ayrshire side.

Boyd suffered through that in the company of Neil Lennon and James McFadden who both ignored his attempts at humour or to take anything away from Celtic’s 54 title triumph, none of which have been shared with Dumbarton.

Sutton stood in for Boyd in the pre-match build up with viewers disappointed not to see the former Kilmarnock striker trying to put on a brave face when he would rather be anywhere other than Celtic Park.

Just before Sutton was due to switch position from the studio to the commentary box a cardboard cut out of Boyd appeared which carried more charisma and personality than the real thing.

Boyd missed out on a five goal thriller, with St Mirren taking the lead twice but ultimately losing out the 90 minutes was a fair reflection on the season overall.

Mark O’Hara silenced the party atmosphere with the opening goal in the seventh minute but midway through the first half Celtic were back on level terms thanks to another outstanding strike from Matt O’Riley.

Celtic were only on level terms for five minutes, O’Hara putting the visitors in front with a penalty but a brilliant move in the 37th minute ended with Kyogo Furuhashi equalising at the near post.

With five minutes left to play Luis Palma scored the winning goal before Joe Hart took his final bow, being replaced by Scott Bain to a terrific ovation.

Boyd missed out on a thriller and a title party, no doubt he will be back next season sniping away at all things Celtic, playing to the gallery of suffering bears dreaming of watching their side win the SPFL title.
