FOOTBALL: O'Neill so happy to be wrong.


MARTIN O'NEILL last night admitted he was delighted at getting things so wrong.

The Celtic manager predicted at the start of the season that the title race would go right to the wire.

Instead Celtic lead Rangers by 13 points with a game in hand and O'Neill admits he is amazed at the progress of his club.

As he prepared for tonight's CIS Cup clash with Livingston, O'Neill said: "I am pleasantly surprised and naturally delighted by the size of the lead we have built up.

"The only disturbing factor is that some of our fans have got it into their heads that we are not expected to lose."
