We have the fifth Glasgow Derby of the season on Sunday and I don’t think there has ever been such a low key run up to a derby.
The sooner this season is consigned to history the better, been a disaster from start to finish and could see us not win a derby game the whole season.
Too many players have looked disinterested, with some looking like they are already expecting to be somewhere else next season. Should John Kennedy play people who don’t want to be here or are not going to be here. Kenny, Laxalt, Elyounoussi, are likely to be returning to their parent clubs, Edouard has not been interested for months, Brown is going to Aberdeen. Should Griffiths, Ajeti, Soro get game time, maybe guys who could be be fighting to remain at the club and put in a performance.
In the cup game, we had several chances but took none and Sevco even seemed to be playing at a lower pace but they know they have the beating of Celtic this year. Get guys in who are hungry, even if its fringe players, youth players, what does it matter now, the season is all but done.
For weeks we have hoped the announcement of a new manager would give us a boost, but like the rest of this season this is turning into a rigmarole. No communication from the club, no statement to even say we have whittled it down to a preferred short list. All we have is rumours, Maresca, Keane then Howe have all been heavily linked then it goes quiet. Hopefully the club have somebody, I’d prefer Howe, signed but can’t be announced for whatever reason and they are organising behind the scenes as we are getting closer and closer to the Champions League qualifier.
Can Celtic stop Sevco from going the league season unbeaten? We will find out today, noon kick off. Last Chance to Dance
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.
