    It's as close to a must win game you could get at the start of the season. We badly need a lift and there's no better feeling than putting those zombie * back in their coffin.

    I'd say yes.

    Every year since their zombified corpse slowly crawled its way up to the SPL the bottom ten have gotten progressively worse. They are hammering the other ten teams and doing better than we ever expected (albeit with a ridiculous amount of luck, when will we ever get to play a European side missing 5 regular starters or who has just lost their manager?). We cannot allow them to build any more confidence than they already have.

    Without the scummy * fanbase booing them off the park they seem to thrive in empty stadiums whereas our team seems to be missing the backing of our support. Gotta laugh though because I don't think that many teams will be playing better without their home support.

    Don't want these *'s winning again at Celtic park and the last two games we have been outplayed in the midfield and Lenny needs to get the formation and team selection bang on.
    So hopefully we have a full squad to select from and dominate this mob from start to finish and a good win .

    Yes.

    The sooner we get ahead and open up a nice gap the better, especially with Covid still lingering.

    I want more than a win though, I want to see us dominate them and play like champions, which we haven’t done the past 2 games against them.

    At the moment they don’t fear playing us. That needs to change :shamrock:

    Yes. We have been poor in the last 2 games against the scum. This season it's neck and neck and with Covid it's no guarantee all games will be played. So all games are important. Especially against these mutant vermin *.

    They are average at best, but know their strengths and how to set up, which enables them to do well. They start hard and fast, which we don't do so well. So we need to be smart switched on and organised and let our quality show. No mercy bhoys.

    Yes.

    A loss wont decide anything, but i agree with what someone else said above about Lennon needing the win in particular.

    I also think this season more than anything the games against them will be pivotal.

    The league is poorer than ever IMO and they wont drop a lot of points elsewhere.

    Every game for Celtic is a must win.

    The players can go into their own cocoon after one of these games, but we supporters have to mix with the rest of the population in this bigoted land and, as such, they owe us a performance and victory in order that we can walk tall. If any of the players don’t get that they shouldn’t be handed a jersey.

    No.

    As long as it's an entertaining game and everyone enjoys themselves then that's the main thing.

    Normally I'd say no, but this season is different. With the way things are going it is uncertain if the the season will be able to be completed, we need to make sure we are on top, and have a better PPG total right throughout the season, in case it has to be called early.

    Must not lose for a team like us that have done it over 38 games so many times before and ran away with it in the end last year again. we'll do better over the other 34 games once again this year. truly believe if we both take 4,5,6 points each from the hun games this season we will be champions.

    It's a must win for a team like them with everything to prove and mentality issues. 2 draws in 5 aways already points to a team thatll drop points away from home. The lack of their own crowd booing them at ibrox will see them clean up any faults in their home form no doubt though.

    In terms of winning the ten I'd say no but as others have mentioned any game against them is a must win.

    Any kind of result for them just gives them oxygen and I'd much prefer to see them suffocate, so for me it is a must win

    So true, we need to get to the top of the SPL just in case season is called early.

    I hate even conceding a goal to them. 100% must win. We’re at home, have the better team, the better manager, we’ll be favourites at the bookies. If our team plays to its ability then we win, plain and simple.
