One Day Two Celtic Games

24 July 2021

Both Celtic and Celtic B are in action today. 18500 fans are allowed into Celtic Park for the friendly against West Ham for a 3pm kick off.


Meanwhile at 1pm in Airdrie, Celtic B welcome one of the favourites for the Lowland League, East Kilbride.

With the second leg of the Champions League coming up next week, expect several fringe and young players to play against West Ham this will mean the Celtic B team will be an even younger side than anticipated.

It seems strange pencilling a friendly match in between two legs of an important qualifier especially when younger members of the squad could have played an actual competitive Lowland League fixture.


Last week a young Celtic B team were beaten away to Bonnyrigg Rose, 2-1. Bosun Lawal scored a matter of days after signing from Watford. The Irish U21 International was highly rated at Watford and we may see him feature for the first team sooner than later.

The fans had a flavour of an Ange Postecoglou team on Wednesday as we were held 1-1 against FC Midtjylland, the team can consider themselves unlucky not to have won, barring a couple of mistakes it was a good performance. Ange took it upon himself to take the blame for the team not being as ready as he would have liked, however there were definite positive signs that the players are buying into the Ange revolution, it was also good to see he got a good reception from the crowd



Celtic continue to be linked with players, with Carl Starfelt replacing the departed Kris Ajer. Goalkeeper and both full back positions need strengthened, another centre half would be good and if Edouard leaves then another striker may be added.

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.
