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...

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...
