Dundee 0-5 Celtic

Halloween night was a screamer all round for the Bhoys in Hoops and a bit of a Nightmare for the Dundee faithful. Five goals by five different scorers on what was Brendan Rodgers 100th win as boss of Celtic. The manager made four changes from Sunday’s semi with Sinclair keeping his place, Gordon back in goals, Boyata in defence and the inform Dynamic midfield high flyer Ryan Christie (Cricky) being rewarded with a start after his brilliant second half performance against Hearts. With confidence high at the minute dare I say we could have a new ‘Maestro’ on our hands and his auld bhoy Charlie will be as happy as the fans with what feels like a new signing.

UEFA Champions League qualifier

Celtic will face AEK Athens in their 3rd qualifying round for the UEFA Champions League after the dispatching of Rosenborg in Trondheim on Wednesday night.

UEFA Champions League 1st Round Qualifier
1st Leg


Edouard (45'+1), Forrest (81'), McGregor (90')
Yesterday evening, Brendan Rodgers' Celtic returned to competitive action for the 2018/19 campaign against Armenian champions Alashkert FC, in the first round of qualifying for the Champions League Group Stages. With every season that passes, it seems as though the summer football break is getting shorter and shorter for the Celtic players. This is of course great for us fans, but surely places extra pressure upon the players to keep themselves fit throughout this long and challenging season that lays ahead.

In the blistering heat of...

The draw for first qualifying rounds of the 2018/19 Champions League took place today at UEFA headquarters in Nyon. Celtic were drawn against Alashkert of Armenia, and are due to play the away leg in Yerevan on 10/11 July, with the home tie in Glasgow due for 17/18 July.

Celtic fans may remember the name of Alashkert, as they famously dumped out St Johnstone of Europa League qualification in 2015/16, their first time reaching the first round qualification stage. However, Alashkert have never got past the second qualifying phase, and Celtic will look to impose their experience of the last 2 successful campaigns to overcome the Armenian champions.
