Celtic Park, Glasgow

Celtic return to action on Monday evening, with the visit of Hibernian to Parkhead. And a win tomorrow would narrow the gap at the top of the League to just three points.

The Bhoys will be welcomed back and roared on by a packed Celtic Park, as fans will once again be allowed into the stadium to catch the Hoops in action on a rare Monday night outing.

This will be the first action in the Scottish top flight in three weeks, after the...
The rumour mill had been in full swing all week with talk of a Covid outbreak amongst Ange Postecoglou's side, and the truth of the matter was revealed an hour or so before kick off. The big shock was to see Vasilius Barkas in goal, along with the omission of captain Callum McGregor at the heart of midfield. Kyogo would lead the line in a welcome return, Welsh at right back and McCarthy in the midfield role vacated by McGregor. The subs bench included several surprises with Soro and Bolingoli, along with kids from the academy Doak, Dawson and Moffat.

With so many players out, the positive to be taken is that these players could get a chance to come in and make a claim for a spot. These are the chances young payers have to embrace when they come around. Would any take their opportunity - an action packed 90 minutes would tell!

The early signs were good with Kyogo getting on to an early ball from McCarthy and pinging a low cross ball into a dangerous...

Kyogo Furuhashi's second half brace secured the League Cup Final victory over Hibs

The SMISA Stadium, Paisley

Ange Postecoglou's Bhoys don't have much time to celebrate Sunday's League Cup triumph, with yet another match in this stacked December schedule and short turnaround, with just roughly 72 hours between lifting the trophy on Sunday and being fully prepared for the short trip to Paisley on Wednesday.

Before proceeding, it should be noted there are questions about the possibility this game happening or what sort of side either team will be able to field is very much open to conjecture at this point.


Sunday 19th December 2021. K.O. 3pm

Hampden Park, Glasgow.

Scorers: Celtic. Kyogo (52, 72)
Hibernian: Hanlon (51)

On a very cold Glasgow December day it was definitely a game of two halves as far as Celtic is concerned. Totally dominant in the first half but lacking in the final third but more of an even game in the second half due to Hibs deciding to come out and attack.

It worked more in the favour of Celtic as Hibs left space at the back for The Bhoys to manipulate. Two brilliant Kyogo goals were enough to see the cup going back to Celtic Park trophy room after a one year absence. There were great performances by Hart, Juranovic and McGregor but the team's linchpin was big Tom Rogic again. Continuing his stellar performance dictating play from midfield and only bettered by the Wee man himself, Kyogo Furuhashi.

Celtic took to the field resplendent in their all green...

The first silverware of the 2021/22 season is up for grabs at Hampden Park this weekend - and the question is, will the Cup be destined for the east end of Glasgow, or be taken to the capital, Edinburgh?

Celtic are chasing their 20th League Cup triumph overall - and the first of the Ange Postecoglou era.

Additionally if they can manage to take the honours, it will be for the sixth time in the past eight years - including four on the trot that set the Hoops on the trail of those four consecutive treble winning seasons.

So while there is still a good sprinking of experience in the Celtic squad of having been here before, such...​
