Celtic 2-2 Inverness: We are a pain in the assBy: Ian Rose | November 27th, 2010
I love this team. I’ve always loved this team, but today is one of those days that you savor. Our eighth road match of the season, and potentially our hardest, ends in a 2-2 draw at Celtic Park, a draw that sees us remain in 4th place in the league and extend our season-long road undefeated streak. Over that stretch, we’ve gone to Glasgow twice, and twice earned score draws from the Old Firm. We were the first team this season to take points from Rangers, and now we’ve done it to Celtic.
Even better, we did it in comeback fashion. The Hoops went up 1-0 late in the first half, and followed that with another near the hour mark to make it 2-0. One thing that we have not classically been good at is coming back from deficits, and it has to be said that 2-0 down to Celtic in their house is about as hard a situation as you can get in Scottish football. But Richie Foran brought one back to give us some hope, and it was good old Grant Munro, a man who has done so much for us, that delivered this point with a goal of his own. Adam Rooney, while managing to not score for the first time in what seems like years, was incredibly active all over the pitch, and gets a lot of credit for keeping Celtic on the back foot.
A great day for Caley. Less so for the other northern side, as Aberdeen was beaten and now finds themselves tied on points for the relegation spot. Strange days. But that’s for another post – this one is all happy. Mon the Caley.
