Cup Semi Final V Aberdeen, 14th April 2019
Much has been made of a few lacklustre performances since Neil Lennon took over as caretaker manager of the club following the departure of Brendan Rodgers to England. Although performances could be criticised, the results had been good with the exception of the home draw against Livingston. Taking all this into consideration, there was an apprehension amongst the support for a game involving Aberdeen, which could move us one step closer to the Rebel Treble :treble:

This was the backdrop to a very enjoyable game of football - unless you are one of the Aberdeen fans who watched their team being outplayed, outfought and out-thought in a torrid 90 minutes +.

Celtic Vs Livingston
It was back to Parkhead for Celtic as they hosted Livingston in the league, two wins are all that Celtic require to secure the title and they faced a Livingston side who where guaranteed SPL status for another season. Livingston were favourites for relegation at the start of the season but have showed real grit and determination through out the campaign and currently sit in 8th place, they are also the side that we faced in the first game of the season with Celtic running out 3-1 winners that day thanks to Edouard, Rogic and an Ntcham penalty. Livingston came into this match without an away win since August while Celtic have won all but one league match in 2019. On a personal note Livingston at home was the...

After Celtic's dramatic 2-1 win against Sevco in the Glasgow derby on Sunday, the Hoops faced a struggling St Mirren side (Scott Browns fault) who were coming into the game off the back of a vital 2-1 win against bottom club Dundee on Saturday. It's been a tough season for the Buddies who were promoted back to the top flight after winning the Championship last season in excellent fashion. Both teams met at St Mirren park on gameweek 5 with the Buddies holding onto a 0-0 draw, a game better remembered for the two yellow cards Oliver Ntcham received inside 40 minutes after the Frenchman decided he didn't fancy playing.

Celtic came into this match without Kieran Tienery and Dedrick Boyata who both went off injured against Rangers on Sunday. There was much talk before this game that Marvin the hun...

The third Glasgow Derby of the season is upon us, a Celtic win will all but seal our 8th title in a row, while a Rangers win will see them close the gap on us to 7 points. The last time these two sides met saw Rangers defeat Celtic 1-0 at Ibrox, it was the first win for the Gers agains't Celtic in 3 seasons, since then Celtic have changed manager and brought in a number of new additions such as Oli Burke & Timo Weah, these new signings have helped Celtic win all but 1 league game in 2019 while Rangers have stuttered only winning 5 of there last 9 league matches.

Celtic go into the match with Tom Rogic, Oli Ntcham and Dedrick Boyata all back in training, whether or not Neil Lennon decides...
For many decades Celtic played without a badge of any description on their shirts. That, of course is no longer true today and nor was it the case back in 1888. Then the very first team to represent the club carried a large green Celtic cross with an Oval blood red background on their *.

That emblem disappeared from the jersey the following year. It was replaced for a time in the 1890s with a golden harp against a blue background, a traditional Symbol of Ireland, which was also used in advertising matches at Parkhead in the latter part of the nineteenth century. Over recent years the four leaf clover, a good luck charm dating back to Pagan times, has come to be associated with Celtic. It’s not clear how and when this was first used, but it’s thought it may have been taken from a plaque designed by an early supporters club; something which reminded the board members of the rich green sod...
