As the title run-in continues to intensify, with just 9 matches to be played, the pressure of picking up three points at every opportunity is apparent to all.

Literally every club, with the possible exception of Hearts, are desperately fighting, knowing how crucial every league point is. Yes, every game is indeed, vital.

The Bhoys have been undefeated in the league since the last visit to Almondvale in September - a run of 23 games including 19 wins, which has propelled them back to the top of the table, and currently hold...​
The big news in the starting line up for this game was the omission of Greek Striker Giakoumakis who had an illness, which is a shame after his recent form and hat trick heroics of last weekend. In would come Maeda to lead the attack with Abada and Jota in the wide areas.

The sun was streaming down on the Easter Road turf for this early kick off and the early signs were good when Abada picked up the ball on the right and found the overlapping Juranovic. The Croatian fired in a low cross to the feet of Rogic in the box but the the playmaker couldn't find the touch in a busy area to apply a finish, and was crowded out.

Ten minutes in and Hibs had a good break down the left with a forward ball to Nisbett. The big striker controlled and got a shot/cross into the danger area but Taylor blocked it and Carter Vickers cleared.

Abada missed by inches when Macey was pacey and raced out of his goal to try and thwart the little winger after a great diagonal ball from Jota. The keeper was...

As the line is now drawn under Celtic's European campaign for another season, the Bhoys cannot allow that - or anything else - to distract them from seizing the silver lining. Specifically, the opportunity to put all of their efforts and attention in regaining the League title this season.

And with the prize so crucially important this season, it is imperative that the Hoops not allow the Conference League exit to derail all of the hard work and determination that has driven the Hoops to open a 3 point gap at the top of the...​

Hatrick Hero: Giorgos Giakoumakis proved to be the difference at the weekend

Celtic face one of the toughest challenges of the Angeball era later this week, when they travel to Norway and look to overcome Bodø/Glimt in the return leg of the Conference League tie.

After the Norwegian Champions stunned Celtic Park last week, the Bhoys now face the tough task of needing to score 2 unanswered goals just to push the tie into extra time (and possibly penalties), or by a margin of 3 clear goals to progress to the next round.

And just to make the challenge that...​

Celtic have little time to dwell on the disappointment of Thursday night as attention immediately switches to this weekend's clash with Dundee, as the Bhoys seek an 8th consecutive win in the League.

All of which, of course, is contingent on whether the match is able to go ahead, in the aftermath of of Storm Eunice and further potentially dangerous weather conditions expected for Sunday.

This is a great opportunity for Ange Postecoglou's side to bounce back right away and even with the trip to the Artic Circle next week...​
