Return to Paradise – Celtic v Hibs

14 December 2019

Celtic return to league action on Sunday and take on a Hibs team who are under new management at Celtic Park.

The Rudi Vata Story

Former St Mirren and Sunderland manager Jack Ross took over the Easter Road hot seat a couple of weeks back and they recorded a 3-0 home win against Aberdeen last week. The Leith side currently sit 6th in the table with 22 points with a record of W5, D7, L5.

Celtic should be back to full strength after giving a host of first team stars a welcome rest for the meaningless defeat midweek away to Cluj, having already qualified and won the group section.

It would be good to see young Karamoko Dembele and Scott Robertson be included in the first team squad again and hopefully play a striker up top, with Edouard, Bayo and Griffiths all in contention after the use of winger Lewis Morgan as a striker in recent weeks.

Fresh from what I feel could be a psychological boost, with winning the league cup last weekend, despite a poor performance, I expect a comfortable victory. We will await to see how Sevco respond after that crushing defeat as they travel to Motherwell for a lunch time kick off.

Tomorrow is a chance to acclaim our 10 in a row trophy winners and cheer them on to another victory.

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.
