Celtic Return to Domestic Duty & Disco Lights

18 January 2023

The League Cup Final v the rangers will as usual have tickets on every Celtic fans mind. Those who attend games regularly should get sorted while other fans will be sweating on getting that golden ticket.


Celtic have announced that Season Ticket holders will have an opportunity to buy corporate packages on a first come first served basis.

These packages will be out of reach for many fans with packages costing £145 + Vat (Silver), £225 + Vat (Gold) & £265 + Vat (Platinum).

For Ange and the players thoughts of a return to Hampden for the final will be at the back of their minds as they take to the field tonight at Celtic Park against a St. Mirren team who are the only team to beat us domestically this season. Revenge is sweet and lets hope those disco lights are flashing tonight.

Once tonight’s game is done and dusted the managers thoughts will then turn to the start of the Scottish Cup Campaign v Morton but for now he will select a team that he thinks will get the 3 points.

That unexpected defeat to St. Mirren came back in September and Celtic have been unbeaten domestically since and go into the game with a 9 point lead over our city rivals who travel to Kilmarnock tonight.

Ange has strength in dept in this Celtic squad and changes are expected from the starting 11 that beat Kilmarnock at Hampden. James Forest did yesterdays presser so he could be a starter tonight.


Saturday night in Glasgow was Baltic, it was the coldest I have been at a game in long time. The conditions were tough on the players in the cold, wind and rain and Ange spoke about it at yesterday.

“It’s fair to say the game itself and obviously the conditions took a fair bit out of the bhoys, so I haven’t made the final decisions yet, but there will be some changes tomorrow, both because it took a fair bit out of the lads at the weekend and also we need to freshen up the team I feel, so I’ll make a few changes.

“I guess the pleasing thing for me is that the guys who have been out recently – Haksabanovic, Ralston, Welsh, McCarthy – are all training and are all available, so obviously from my perspective, we’ve got some options there now.

“Alistair Johnston, he’s good now after missing the weekend game , so it’s fair to say we’ll make some changes tomorrow, not only on the back of the weekend game but also I just feel it’s a good moment to freshen up the team a bit.”
