Kilmarnock travel to Celtic Park on Sunday as Celtic look to maintain the 10 point gap at the top of the table
Celtic return to league action after a Europa League tie away to Copenhagen, a game of two halves as Celtic dominated the first and were unlucky to go in 1-0 up only for the Danes to come out a different team after the interval, miss a penalty and in the end we were fortunate to come back with the 1-1 draw. We should be good enough, given the first half showing to beat Copenhagen at Celtic Park.
Hopefully there is no hang over from the midweek match as three points are important in our bid for 9 in a row. Anything we get out of the Europa is, for me, a bonus as my focus is on getting the nine and then next year ten.
Kilmarnock have started to pick up some results, most notably beating Rangers. However since that win they have lost at home to Hibs and were knocked out the cup last midweek in a seven goal thriller against Aberdeen after extra time, so they might have a hang over of their own from that game.
Its only a month since we last played each other when we went to Rugby Park and won 3-1. Greg Taylor, Elhamed and Griffiths may still miss out as they did in midweek but Celtic if they play anywhere near their best should be too strong.
Mick Kane hails from Glasgow. He has been hooked on Celtic since he went to his first game when he was 7. Celtic beat Hamilton 8-3 at Celtic Park on the 3rd of January 1987. His favourite player at the time, Brian McClair scored four goals.
He started going regular as a 16 year old when Celtic played at Hampden for the season, being a Southsider it meant a short train journey to get to Hampden. From then he has had a season ticket travelled around Europe for games as Celtic became the dominant force in Scottish football again. A nice change from growing up during Rangers run to 9 in a row.
