Celtic return to action after the international break with Motherwell the visitors to Celtic Park. Every Celtic fan will be hoping they can turn in a performance like the one they signed off with against Aberdeen before the players went off to play for their respective countries.
That 6-0 performance was almost perfect on the field although the noise and colour created by Ultra groups the Bhoys and the Green Brigade was sadly missed.
After the disappointment of our 6-0 hammering in Madrid it was nice to return from our travels and watch the Celtic players turn in such a positive performance and send us all home happy.
The nightmare of watching the Spaniards after Maeda was sent off was put to the back of my memory as I left Celtic Park looking forward to watching the highlights of the game and the goals by Yang, Kyogo, Palma, Turnbull and Oh (2).
Brendan was quizzed about the Champions League at this week’s press conference but he will focus on Motherwell first.
The SPFL is our bread and butter but after the AGM financial results you would imagine that the board will back Brendan to bring in better players in January which as Brendan stated can be a tough window to shop in.
He wants to cut the squad numbers down and a number of players will have to move on.
With the Asian cup starting on the 12th of January during the Scottish winter football shutdown. Celtic will be without key players with the final not scheduled until.
You would imagine bringing in another quality striker will be on Brendan’s mind.
