If the term 'catastrophising' can be abundantly sprayed about anywhere, then Glasgow is, without question, the place to be.

Irrespective of the fact that only three games have taken place in the Premiership so far, the trend towards 'a form of negative thinking where a person thinks the worst about a situation' in relation to the fortunes of the Old Firm, is as intense now as it has always been.

Guilty as charged of drawing games against Kilmarnock and Livingston respectively, both Celtic and Rangers are well acquainted with the tendency for its supporters to over dramatise every morsel. In Scotland, there is, refreshingly, none of this bloated 'race for the top four' propaganda. This is the jaggy terrain of sound and fury, where second is nowhere.
