Kilmarnock 0-1 Celtic. Rugby Park 17th February 2019
Brown (90+1). Kick off 4pm

Away days at Rugby Park can come with a big incentive attached some times and today was one of those occasions. For the men in Hoops it was a cup tie feel whilst Kilmarnock knew it was up to them to contribute to putting a spanner into Celtic’s works. With recent ties and under manager Stevie Clarke the fixture has proved difficult for Celtic to overcome. A 4pm kick off time that was unusual for the support on a bright crispy cold Ayrshire evening. Just perfect for a game of football, some cheerleaders and Brother Madden as ringmaster.

Kilmarnock took to the pitch in their home shirt of blue and white horizontals and the Celts in the day-glo strip that has been a bit of an omen this season but still easy to spot a colleague for a pass....

There's been times this season where I've generally sat back and thought when the * was our last home game? Now it seems those disco lights are truly getting a good use with 3 of our last 4 league games being at home! Tonight Celtic faced the green half of Edinburgh, Hibernian. Hibs who recently parted company with Celtic legend Neil Lennon were coming into the game in 8th place, a position a club the size of Hibs should not be in, Eddie May the Hibernian youth coach took charge of them tonight and he faced a Celtic side who have been in top form since 2nd half of the season had started. Celtic went into the game with injury and suspension problems but it was a pleasant surprise to see new signing Bayo named on the subs bench while Toljan made his first start for the club, starting along with him was Celtic captain and Legend Scott Brown who has just signed a new 2 year deal with us which see’s him stay with the side until 2021. We also saw Oli Burke & Timo Weah start in the...

Celtic Park 19.45. Wednesday 30th January 2019.

Celtic 2-0 St Johnstone
Attendance: 54,563 allegedly

By Sunday 10/2 the Bhoys in Hoops will have played St.Johnstone 3 times in a triple header consisting of 2 league games and a tasty Scottish cup 5th round tie back at Paradise. Wednesday night would be the first tussle in dipping temperatures that would skin most men (But not the brave Broony). The Saints arrived at the East end with one purpose. Defend for their lives with two banks of defence and mostly 10 men behind the ball for 90 minutes.
Celtic entered this game with great enthusiasm and 14 consecutive wins at Celtic Park. Also the boosting of our squad seems to have injected a bit of freshness into our play which was redundant in the first half of the season. With the addition of Oli Burke and Timo Weah we couldn’t ask for...

You have to wonder sometimes as to what the point of certain clubs is? What are the ambitions? What are the limitations and the desires to exceed expectations? Is survival in the top tier ALL that can be achieved?

When you see thirty or so away fans in a section next to you, the logical answer is another question. Why bother?

Football is a funny game, and if you saw the final result of this one, you might think it was a free flowing, expansive game with two teams out to entertain, but one having that little bit of extra quality. It wasn't. It was one team coming to set 11 men behind the ball and to attempt damage limitation from the first whistle to the last. These games are set to try you, and where the three points at the end are effectively all that...

:ynwacelti Celtic 4-0 St Mirren :rip_1:

It was back to league action for the men in Hoops following on from the Christmas break, a straight forward yet dull win against Airdrie in the cup gave Oli Burke and Tim Weah there debuts, tonight Celtic hosted bottom side St Mirren who coming into the game had picked up just 10 points in 13 games.

Celtic lined up in there regular 4-2-3-1 with Scott Bain keeping his place in goal while Oli Burke also started for Celtic as the league leaders looked to start the new year off with a bang.
