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...​

K.O. 3pm

Celtic travelled through to West Lothian to face Livingston right off the back of the Europa League defeat against Real Betis on Thursday night. To be two up early on to capitulate and concede four goals was gut wrenching but getting back to winning ways in the league is of most importance currently. Celtic also need to get a monkey off their back in the fact that the last time they beat Livi at their ground was 14 years ago when the Hoops triumphed 1-4 in the Scottish cup (04/02/07). Since then in 4 visits there has been three draws and one Livingston victory.

To say Celtic don’t fancy their plastic pitch is an understatement and to be honest it is atrocious. For any team in any top professional league to be playing on plastic pitches does not credit the game itself and is what the fans pay good money to watch. The whole first half was so lacklustre and the game was...

Ange Postecoglou's side once again must put the disappointment of a European defeat behind them as the fixtures continue to come thick and fast, with a short trip away to West Lothian to line up against Livingston at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

A couple of months into the 2021/22 season, and it is almost like 'Angeball' is halfway there; in attack and at home, things are firing on all cylinders.

However, at the back and on the road, it's a very different tale.​

While Celtic have been capable of some truly sublime football at Parkhead, and have been...​

After Celtic's victory over the Staggies at the weekend, all attention now turns to the first matchday of the Europa League group stages as the Bhoys travel next to Spain, where a clash with Real Betis awaits.

This will be the first ever meeting between the sides, but it will not be the first visit to the city of Seville, where famously 18 years ago, more than 80,000 Celtic fans packed the streets, congregating from not just Glasgow or Ireland, but from all across Europe to even further afield, including the likes of Australia...​
