With the disappointment of Thursday night still fresh in the mind, and with a string of poor results in recent weeks, we travel to a tricky away tie at Aberdeen. The home side are on their own run of poor form and this could be one where we take a much needed away win. Scott Brown will face us in his first appearance against Celtic since leaving on a free in the summer.

Ange has made a change in the midfield area with Bitton coming in for Rogic, who drops to the bench. I imagine he will sit in the holding mid role and allow McGregor to get forward more in the left hand side of the midfield three.

After early pressure from Celtic with a header from Jota and a long range effort from McGregor, it was a high press from Aberdeen that brought the closest early effort when Samuels had a shot from 20 yards that flashed wide. Celtic got a corner right after that should have seen Bitton give Celtic the lead. A lovely flighted ball by Turnbull saw the Israeli...
Having lost three of the first six league games, Celtic welcomed Dundee United to Celtic Park with a sense of optimism of getting a win. The injury woes had been getting increasingly worrying, but a home tie seemed like a good way of getting a run of wins started after some woeful away results.

Ange's team pretty much picked itself, with long term injury victim Jullien, still out, along with McGregor, Kyogo, Giakoumakis, Taylor, Dembele, Forrest and Johnston. Ajeti - our only fit first team striker would remain upfront and only Moffat on the bench could come on in a forward capacity to change anything. It is a sorry state of affairs and testament to the problems of losing so many players in the summer, without bolstering the squad with the quality replacements needed.


The first major action came from work down the right between Abada and Ralston. The full back was involved in a coming together with McMann on the right, but he recovered and got to his...

Sunday's clash with Dundee United is yet another crucial step for Celtic as they seek to reclaim their League title. And even though the campaign is only six games into this season, given the current wobbles away from home, it is imperative that they continue to make the most of every match which is held at Parkhead.

After Thursday's comfortable victory over Raith Rovers ensured passage to a League Cup Semi-Final showdown with holders, St Johnstone, all attention now returns to the league, and the visit of Dundee United.

SCOTTISH LEAGUE CUP Quarter Final

CELTIC 3-0 RAITH ROVERS




23rd September 2021. K.O. 7.45pm

Celtic Park. Glasgow.

Ange Postecoglou made three changes in defence to the team that started the defeat to Livingston in league duty. Out went Juranovic, Welsh and Bolingoli to make way for Ralston, Starfelt and Adam Montgomery and another game where we chopped and changed the back four. Championship side Raith Rovers rocked up to Celtic Park with the intention of adding more misery on a Celtic team that had lost two games on the bounce.

It was Rovers who looked to have settled quicker with assured play and passing in the first 25 minutes although Celtic were mostly in possession. On 3 minutes, new Bhoy, Jota twisted beautifully on the edge of the Raith box to get a shot away. The next decent opportunity would arrive on 19 minutes when Rogic raced to the bye-line to cut back for Ajeti who caught the ball on his heel but was...

Thursday's League Cup Quarter-Final encounter with Raith Rovers is more than just an opportunity to progress to the Final Four - and for good reason.

On a wider front, this match represents the opportunity to try and arrest a worrying run of form. And while this has only seemingly been a cause for concern while the Hoops have been on their travels, make no mistake any opportunity to pick up a win will be gratefully latched onto.

This will be the first such meeting between these sides in exactly 6 years (23 Sept 2015) - and just the fourth in total...​
