Following a poor performance by Tottenham Hotspur, one of the studio pundits looked straight at the camera and blurted out: "You know, Spurs still haven't won when Leighton Baines has been on the pitch."
It was inanity of the highest order. First and foremost, of course, because Baines doesn't play for Tottenham and never has. The pundit in question meant to say Gareth Bale, of course, and simply mis-spoke.
How long before the past is buried – not forgotten, because that would be unforgivable and unrealistic – and you wake up feeling like yourself again, or, more accurately, like who you think you are or should be?
Rangers supporters will be wrestling with such feelings in the next few years as they ascend the league ladder. And, on Tuesday night at Parkhead against Juventus, Celtic may get a foretaste of what it will feel like when the Old Firm are finally reunited in the SPL.
