Celtic this morning woke up in the near future after Barcelona quite literally thrashed them into next week.

The 7-0 Champions League rout proved so comprehensive it made good on a phrase that until now was thought to be figurative.

It’s an alarming state of affairs for Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers, who now has just a matter of hours to prepare his side for their Scottish League Cup quarter-final against Alloa.

He said: “It’s far from ideal, finding ourselves suddenly one week into the future.

“To make matters even worse – and if you don’t want to know the result, look away now – it turns out we lost Saturday’s game at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

“Now I’ve just got a few hours to get us ready for the quarter-final instead of a whole week. Well that’s just super.

“So, you know, hello from the future and all that. Give Messi, Su├írez and Neymar my regards.

“Not much has happened in the intervening seven days. A minor celebrity died, but I shan’t ruin it by revealing which one.

“Oh, and Owen Smith looks set to win the Labour leadership contest after Jeremy Corbyn’s distasteful Twitter bust-up with Kanye West.

“That’s it for now, folks – more from the future as I have it. Peace out.”
