Early Doors has been accused in the past of devoting almost no coverage to events north of the border, and in turn has received plenty of abuse for it.
So, after an evening in which there was precisely zero football played in England - there was even a 24-hour embargo placed on kickarounds on tarmac tennis courts imposed by the FA - ED is happy to give the SPL the spotlight it deserves.
In events that mirrored those in Moscow the previous night, the attacking guile of the average Irishmen's second team Celtic claimed a dramatic late victory over the dour, pragmatism of Rangers.
At least the Gers have already gone one better than their blue-shirted Sassenach counterparts, Chelsea, by at least claiming the League Cup.
Celtic's comeback to win their third straight title was extra commendable considering that just a few weeks ago they were written off, ahead on points but with then quadruple-chasing Rangers with about 10 games in hand, all of which it was assumed they would win.
And how were Bhoys fans watching Sky Sports News delivered the news that their side had completed their great comeback? With some thrilling shots of a plane said to be carrying the Manchester United squad taxiing down a runway, followed by the realisation that it was, in fact, the wrong plane.

As if that sight wasn't sickening enough for Chelsea fans, then the two dozen or so that flicked over to ITV4 last night would have been treated to a repeat of 'Chelsea: King of Clubs'.
The 'documentary' was made around a year ago, meaning that a certain Jose Mourinho was interviewed laying out his plans for the future, and the show opened with footage of the players celebrating their FA Cup final win over Manchester United, gleefully spraying each other with bubbly and fan favourite Didier Drogba guzzling Moet out of the famous old cup.
That was bad enough for Blues fans, but for neutrals it was even worse, as they were given an extended interview with chief executive Peter Kenyon bleating on about "international marketplaces" and "10-year plans for sustainability".
ED realises that this is the language of football these days, but let's keep it in the boardroom please. If the price of getting such access to the inner workings of a big club means your programme becomes a drab corporate PR film, then it's really not worth the bother.
In the interest of fairness, it's worth pointing out that the Manchester United profile from the same series followed the Chelsea one, but at least that had some interesting footage pre-2003.

Residents of Austrian capital Vienna have staunchly refused to get too worked up about hosting the upcoming European Championships, until now.
The news that the price of a large beer in the designated 'fan zone' is set to rocket to 4.50 euros (about £3) has incensed the locals, especially as the same froth-topped happy sauce will be served up in plastic steins for just 3.10 euros (£2) by co-hosts Switzerland.
"It is crazy. Completely idiotic," said Christian Habermueller, 35, who offers horse and carriage rides to tourists in Vienna's city centre.
Anja Richter of the Vienna Euro 2008 organising committee responded: "We don't want to encourage alcoholism and there will be four free drinking fountains where fans can drink Vienna water which is of excellent quality."
A beer for £3 AND free water? ED finally has a reason to feel gutted that England aren't there to crash the party.

QUOTES OF THE DAY: Far be it from ED to single out one fan for ridicule, but the last thing that gutted Chelsea fans needed was the ranting rude boy who was given more than enough rope in a TV interview outside Stamford Bridge. Sample quotes included:
"John Terry, Frank Lampard, they did us proud (beats chest)."
"This is nuffin, yeah? This is just another trophy that we could have put in our silver cabinet. We didn't get it, so what?"
"We're on to next trophy, innit. Yeah?"
FOREIGN VIEW: "80 Millones" - Spanish comic Marca just can't resist giving that expired nag another beating as they proclaim that Cristiano Ronaldo will join Real Madrid for 80 million euros PLUS Robinho. Nobody should be bored of the summer's biggest transfer saga before summer has even begun.
TALKING POINT: Oephyx manages to slag off Didier Drogba, John Terry and Nike's new carbon fibre 'concept' boots, as well as improve the English language, all in one fell swoop: "Thinking of Drogba, he could at least have lended his rocket powered space boots with integrated limited slip differential to John Terry."
Today - Who do you want to win in the play-offs this weekend? Is it even a good idea to have an entire season's efforts boiled down to one game?
COMING UP: Today we're starting our countdown to Euro 2008 with the first of our daily profiles of the teams involved. There will also be all the team news ahead of the play-offs this weekend, as well as the usual tittle tattle in Transfer Talk.
