Livi ruined the game
Tam said sellik could play livi and beat them 5 times in a row... Then the stats were given to silence from tam
Christie was only defending himself

Alfredo Morelos' performance was further evidence Rangers could be rewarded with silverware and transfer gold
The rap sheet was lengthy and the rehab is still ongoing.
Alfredo Morelos imprisoned much of his talent last season with his own petulant behaviour and lack of professionalism.
His performance against Aberdeen offered further evidence of a Rangers repentance that might yet see the club rewarded with silverware - and end of season transfer gold.
No ifs, buts or maybes. At the peak of his game, no striker in Scottish football can match the armoury of the fiery Colombian, who plays with a scowl on his face and joy in his heart.
Steven Davis and Greg Stewart drew the bulk of favourable comments against an Aberdeen side that put on a display, the opinion on which swayed between absolutely outplayed to utterly anonymous.
Didn’t turn up? Mentally, they looked as if they were still in the queue for Starbucks at Dunblane as the Light Blues handed Derek McInnes his heaviest defeat in more than six years as Dons gaffer.
McInnes was pilloried by his own Pittodrie punters after this humbling, but perspective is required for a manager who is trading with Slater’s against Steven Gerrard’s Saville Row.
Rangers were already four goals to the good when Sheyi Ojo was removed after an hour and replaced from the bench by Jermain Defoe to join Morelos in terrorising the Dons defence.
Mikey Devlin and Co could have been forgiven for borrowing a line from Glasgow theatrical folklore, when Bernie Winters was joined on stage at the Empire by brother Mike and a disgusted audience member cried out, “Aw naw,
there’s two of them.”
Morelos scored two goals against Aberdeen in five matches last season, missed the Betfred Cup semi-final meeting as a result of his own indiscipline, picked up four yellow cards and three reds, one of which was later rescinded.
At this stage last season he had already been dismissed twice, been cautioned six times and scored eight goals in 17 appearances. Now? After the same number of games Morelos has netted 13 times and been booked only three times.
His movement against the Dons was a joy to watch as he drew Devlin and Zak Vyner into the debate central defenders detest most - to stay or go.
For the most part they kept their feet planted on the 18 yard line, but it only created a midfield overload in which Rangers played through the Dons and created time and pockets of space to pick passes into the box.
On the occasions they followed him deep it allowed Stewart, Scott Arfield and Ojo to prosper in behind from the dainty feet of Davis, a wonderful technician whose guile and creativity in that area wreaked havoc.
Morelos is playing with a ravenous appetite - he dropped deep, skipped past Greg Leigh and drew Vyner into the clumsy challenge that allowed James Tavernier to score the opener from the spot after 20 minutes.
He popped up on the right wing to feed Tavernier for the cross that led to Stewart’s second three minutes before the break, but it was his third that proved the pick of the bunch.
He drifted between midfield and attack, knocked the ball to Davis and when the midfielder picked out Borna Barisic, Morelos judged his back post run to perfection, darting behind the defence to nod a delightful cross into the net from six yards.
Defoe added a fifth after another Tavernier spot kick, awarded when Leigh was caught wrong side of Barisic and wrestled the full-back to the ground, compounding an already wretched afternoon.
Even McInnes was moved to comment: “We are well-versed in how Morelos wants to play but when he does it as well as he did today, it is difficult to stop. He led the line brilliantly. The quality of movement is something he is very good at.”
Gerrard added: “I am not going to take any credit for Alfredo’s performance. He is the one who is dropping into the interesting areas trying to drag the Aberdeen defenders around the pitch.
“He was on the left, on the right, he scored a header. He was focussed on his performance and nothing else.”
Rangers lost twice against Aberdeen at Ibrox in three fixtures last season,
including a ruinous loss in the Scottish Cup, but their energy and movement, orchestrated by Davis, suggests they have learned hard and fast as they bid to mount a credible title challenge.
Aberdeen, weakened by injuries, looked a shadow of the well organised side who have put in some significant performances against the big two in recent seasons.
They were pulled all over the place and the failure of their midfield to impact on the match left Sam Cosgrove and isolated and frustrated figure in attack.
Even their set piece threat failed to materialise and Allan McGregor did not have a single shot to save, with Connor McLennan’s low drive outside the post from 25 yards in the second half their only moment of encouragement.
Rangers could have scored more, but still moved closer to celtic at the top of the table following that 1-1 draw at Easter Road - and the Light Blues are now back to within a goal of their arch rivals.
They head to Switzerland this week for Europa League duty in bullish spirits as Gerrard bids for the victory that will take them a huge step closer to the knockout stages just two matches in.
With Zen Dog Alfredo leading the line, you wouldn’t put it past them to scale new heights in the shadow of the Alps.
Even just 1 person from the UB to answer and back up their tweet .
They bring a great atmosphere with their singing and chants and some of the banners are class but they’ve just scored an own goal with this bizarre tweet.
I also think they should have a standing section but this sadly has just kicked that idea down the road even further due to a nonsensical tweet.
