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...

League leaders Celtic travel to Den's Park this Sunday hoping to celebrate St. Patrick's Day by (at least) maintaining their 8 point advantage at the top of the table.

The Hoops come into this game having won 8 of their last 9 league games, whilst the struggling Dark Blues have lost their last 3 league games, and sit only 1 point above bottom side St. Mirren. Dundee also face the champions tomorrow with their record against Celtic being 1 win in 43.

Jim McIntyre's side will be missing Andrew Davies, Andrew Nelson, Jack Hamilton and Josh Meekings, whilst the visitors, whilst Neil Lennon will welcome back the influential Callum McGregor, frenchman Olivier Ntcham and Filip Benkovic from injuries....​

Obviously the last couple of days have been frustrating for us as Celtic supporters, whatever we may think of Brendan Rodgers for leaving us to go to Leicester there is no doubting the man's coaching abilities or his record domestically, whatever we may think of him he gave us one of the best seasons ever as a Celtic fan in 2016-17 and I will always be thankful for that.

As the saying goes though, 'As one door closes, another door opens' and with Rodgers departure the door has opened once again for Celtic Legend Neil Lennon to rejoin as "Interim" manager until the end of the season, he will be assisted by John Kennedy and Damien Duff, Duff like Lennon probably cannot believe his luck over the last month considering he has only just joined the club as a youth team coach. Lennon who recently left Hibernian has already stated in a number of interviews that none of...
CELTIC 4-1 MOTHERWELL: Sunday 24/02/19
3PM kick off. Referee. Kevin Clancy
Celtic Park. SPFL.

League duty at Paradise and a game against the Aptly nicknamed The Steelmen. Have this team forever been known for hammer throwing their way through games? Games with Motherwell are often feisty and this one would play out the final stages with not an inch given in trying to play actual football. Brendan Rodgers made a swathe of changes from Thursdays impressive display in Valencia and it was much deserved. Also time to see who is up to speed and who can handle first team pressure. Out went Simunovic, Brown and McGregor with Oli Burke and Hayes dropping to the bench. It was a welcome return for today’s captain Tierney in his hot spot of Left Back. Bitton was starting his first game of the season after lengthy injury and starting was Sinclair and Edourd up top. The big test...
