Celtic weren't taking any Prisoners today and put out a normal team today with the exception of Juninho Paulista for his first start since the 1-0 away win against Aberdeen in mid January, giving young Ireland International talent, Aiden McGeady a rest on the bench.

Celtic were troubling Clyde Goalkeeper, Bryn Halliwell constantly and the Englishman was on hand to save threats from Sutton, Bellamy and Juninho early on in the first half.

Clyde plater, Craig Bryson scored an amazing strike for the home team on the half hour, only to find that Referee, Thomson had already blown for a foul by Celtic's Stilian Petrov.
From the free-kick that had ruled the Midfielder's goal out, Darren Sheridan hit the post for Clyde after curling around the Celtic wall.

Craig Bellamy then had a good chance and tried to lob Halliwell, but Halliwell did well to save.

Five minutes before the interval, a Juninho corner was headed in by 6 foot 6 defender, Stanislav Varga.

At half-time, Chris...
celtic res 1 nil up momo sylla
first half Celtic walked allover the *...only 3 good saves by that unknown goalkeeper kept Celtic at bay...

second half....Celtic were pish...Douglas developed an allergy to the ball and * up to allow rangers to go one up...
3 * HUGE crap defenders let a wee Spanish * run between them to score a pish easy goal....

Thommo has had his day and couldnt pass water...Petrov would need help to cross the road...

Bellamy done alright....

Douglas * up!!

Think that sums up the game...
the celtic team, today welcomed a new face, ex-liverpool defender, stefan henchoz was drafted in to help out the defence for the trip to fife, but other new signing craig bellamy was left out due to martin o'neill not wanting to risk the welshman apparently because he didn't like the idea of him playing on the plastic pitch with his history of injuries, but he would have struggled to get into the attack if he knew how well chris sutton and john hartson would play today.

this was a cup game and the celtic players weren't risking their cup run against a premier league team like dunfermline, who have given celtic some well fought matches in the past.

in the first 5 minutes the pars were on top, but were hit on the break by a 7th minute john hartson goal provided by sutton.

2 minutes later, hartson was causing havock again by unluckily hitting the crossbar, for player of the month, chris sutton to easily rebound in with a header.

about 30 minutes into the game, dunfermline...
there were ridiculously massive gaps in the away stand today, too many fans are either bored of seeing the same week in, week out (getting a goal and holding on), or the celtic fans would rather pay for setanta than be charged a ridiculous fee of around £20- £25 just to get into an average size spl team's ground.

it was a freezing, bitterly cold day today at ayrshire, and celtic knew a win against 'the killie boys' would send them top after rangers were on top on goal difference, and had played a game more than celtic.

the celtic fans wanted to win the game (obviously), but were just as worried about the controversy surrounding defender, dianbobo balde's future at the scottish champions, who put in a typical champion performance today.

celtic were lined up in a 442 formation today, with the normal players, yet again including ulrik laursen, who looks to be improving game by game after putting in terrific performances since the rangers game at the start of the month.
