Celtic vs. Motherwell

Scottish Cup Final

Saturday 19th May

Kick-off: 3pm

BBC One Scotland & Sky Sports Football



This Saturday, Celtic once again find themselves presented with the opportunity to make history. This time last year we witnessed the Invincible Treble, whilst this time around it’s the potential of a feat no other team has achieved in the history of the Scottish game – a back to back treble.

Saturday’s final will certainly have something of a déjà vu like feel to it, as, much like November’s League Cup final, Celtic once again find themselves facing Motherwell.

It was a relatively comfortable 2-0 victory for the Bhoys on that day, but football’s an unpredictable game and cup finals have been known to bring about some shocks over the years. While Celtic will be sure they have what it takes to...
Hoops still in seventh heaven despite trophy day defeat

Celtic - 0
Aberdeen - 1 (Considine, 47)


Celtic Park, Glasgow
13th May
SPFL


Celtic rounded off the 2017/18 league season with a fairly feeble performance against Aberdeen, who managed to secure second position in the league on the final day of the campaign. In a season in which Celtic can win a second consecutive domestic trouble next Sunday, it was evident that Brendan Rodgers’ players mind’s laid elsewhere, Aberdeen managed to pip Rangers to becoming second best team in the country, after the Ibrox side threw away a 3-5 lead to Hibernian to draw 5-5.

In a game in which the Hoops had the lions share of possession and the more shots between the two, it was Andy Considine’s 47th minute strike that was the difference – a left footed driven shot into the bottom left corner, after some good...​

Now that is how you seal the league!

After a disappointing result last weekend at Easter Road, Celtic were presented with the opportunity to wrap up their seventh consecutive league title in the Glasgow Derby, in front of their own fans. A situation the SPFL had desperately tried to avoid. The added pressure certainly did not faze the Hoops as they ran riot and dominated from start to finish.

The surprise inclusion in the Celtic line-up was Odsonne Edouard, the man who struck the winning goal only a month ago at Ibrox. Moussa Dembele missed out through injury, which paved the way for his fellow...

Rodgers' Celts have a stranglehold over their rivals and will look to create yet more history this weekend
Getting one over your fiercest rivals tends to be sweet at the best of times. Indeed, thumping their next door neighbours has become somewhat of a familiarity for this Celtic team over the past few years, with last week's dominant 4-0 Cup win being the 10th straight undefeated game against Murty's mob. This coming Sunday however, Brendan Rodgers' record breaking side have yet another opportunity to write their names into the history books. With a win against Rangers, the Hoops will seal 7-in-a-row, not only taking a step closer to the mystical '10' AND -potentially- a back to back treble, but also...

... having run riot at iBrokes.

The Champions proved why they're the dominant force in Scotland in last week's derby clash, and continue on their travels in the Premiership to Motherwell on Sunday.

Rangers 2-3 Celtic

The game against Scotland's shame last Sunday had even the most composed of Celtic fans on the edge of their seat. In a thrilling contest between 1st and 2nd place, the Hoops twice came from behind with goals from Tom Rogic, Moussa Dembele, and on-loan substitute Odsonne Edouard to win the match, despite being down to 10 men following Jozo Simunovic's dismissal.

It was a game that had been built up by the media as a chance for The Rangers to put pressure on Celtic in...
