Celtic v Zenit
UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE ROUND OF 32


Venue: Celtic Park
Date: 15/2/18
Kick off: 20:05
Referee: Damir Skomina (SVN)


European football returns to Paradise as Celtic host Russian side Zenit on Thursday. The blues of St. Petersburg face the Bhoys for the first time in UEFA competition, and they will prove a formidable test for the Glaswegians having qualified in emphatic style from their group.

Scoring more goals and amassing more points than any other side in the group stages, Roberto Mancini's team come to Scotland to play their first competitive game since the first week of December, as the Russian winter break runs until March.

That could be seen as a key advantage for Celtic, who have played 6...

Labrokes Premiership
Tuesday 30th January, 2018
Round 25
Celtic Park

3-1
Edouard (3'), Boyata (25'), Dembele (36')- Lafferty (67')

AFTER suffering defeat for the first time in 69 games against Hearts back in December, Celtic dished out a comfortable beating to their capital city rivals this evening. Moussa Dembele returned to goalscoring form with strike partner Odsonne Edouard and marauding centre back Boyata also adding to the Champions' goal tally during a 1st half which saw the Hoops produce some of their best football so far this campaign.

The Celtic players emerged from the tunnel tonight with revenge clearly on their mind(s) and from the very outset played at a ferocious tempo, which the Hearts XI could not cope with...

Welcome to Celtic, Charly Musonda

Celtic have tonight officially announced the much anticipated arrival of Belgian attacking midfielder Charly Musonda on an 18-month loan deal from Chelsea.

The 21 year old had been linked with the club for some time ever since Brendan Rodgers' arrival, with the gaffer finally managing to get his man, in what can only be considered a major coup, with around 24 other clubs also interested in the highly rated attacker.

Musonda has wasted no time in winning over the Celtic fans, with the youngster choosing to sport the number 67 for his new club, a number which is of course iconic to every Hoops fan across the globe. He certainly seems delighted to be in the East End of Glasgow, and with the side looking slightly bereft of...

CELTIC FIGHT BACK TO BEAT JAGS IN SPFL RETURN
Hoops win the hard way in game of two halves at Firhill
Celtic extended their lead at the top of the table to 11 points as they beat Partick Thistle in the Glasgow derby after coming from 1-0 behind at half time. The game was cagey from the open, and both teams gave away cheap chances to one another as Dedryk Boyata and Odsonne Edouard scuppered efforts in front of goal for the champions. At the back, Mikael Lustig and Kristoffer Ajer invited Thistle on with sloppy passing in their own half, creating an air of uncertainty in the Hoops' buildup.

Despite plenty of possession, Celtic struggled to create many clear cut chances and their passing movements were lacking the fluidity the away fans are used to from their team. The Parkhead sides' problems worsened when Miles Storey capitalised on a poor touch from Lustig and...

Dundee vs. Celtic

Tuesday 26th December

Dens Park

Kick Off: 12:30

BT Sport 1

Following on from their comprehensive victory against Aberdeen on Saturday, Celtic now turn their attention towards their next opponents, Dundee. When the sides last met back in October it was a relatively close affair, although Celtic ultimately won the game, courtesy of a 61st minute goal by Olivier Ntcham.

The biggest challenge facing both sides heading in to this game is the onset of fatigue after a hectic month of games, something both mangers will surely take in to consideration when selecting their team for Tuesday.

Looking at the players who featured against Aberdeen perhaps gives us a hint as to what sort of team we can expect to line-up come Boxing Day.

Jozo Simunovic and Nir Bitton were both...
