    Win this match will be 60 domestic unbeaten with 2 after it to equal the Celtic record.
    After that if Celtic want to beat the British unbeaten record (which we hold) of 62 matches we will have to beat St Johnstone away from home at the venue were Celtic last lost domestically on 11/05/16

    I think we’ll take 3 or 4 off them personally.

    My worry is the game following.

    Love Griff but this is an ideal one to leave him out of.. looks a bit drained and is a massive Hibee..

    I would think with such a tough run of games from last night to the semi-final and onto Aberdeen away on Wednesday the latter 2 against rested teams it would make sense to start Dembele on Saturday. I would bring in Rogic and Forrest from the start in midfield as well. Any word on Sviatchenko it would be good if he could come in and play on Saturday.

    Personally i think that team picks itself for this and barring maybe bitton would be a bit surprised if that wasnt the starting 11

    just hope our players have the energy after Munich..

    why we didn't get the Sunday fixture is open for debate.. but i think it may help with the midweek game

    2 tough games coming up

    Think that will work best, Gamboa and Tierney overlapping to stretch them as I imagine they will play 352 again. Use the pitch and just make them work, they will be up for the fight just as long as we don't get dragged into a scrappy game.

    Team that finished against Bayern for me. Maybe give De Vries more game time.

    Would like the team to find some fluency and get on top of teams so far they have been a bit disjointed so far this season don't think an unsettled back 4 is helping.

    Take it if McGinn scores again, he'll be going on the shortlist for January.
