Celtic take on third place Hearts on Saturday, with the chance to extend the lead at the top to nine points with two games to play, all but winning the league, Rangers would have to win by cricket scores in their three remaining matches to overtake us and hope we lost our last two, it’s quite simply not going to happen.
Last weekend was a strange one, Celtic should have been a couple of goals up at half time before Rangers found their way back into it in the second half, they then hit the post, a draw was probably the right result. That was a must win game for Rangers to have had any hope of winning the league and it was a bit surprising seeing them celebrate at the end when they had failed to do so. Let’s hope we get the job done against Hearts with the stadium rocking.
Hearts have had an impressive season, after promotion back to the Premiership, they have the cup final to look forward to at the end of the season and are sitting 17 points ahead of 4th placed Dundee United. They have a record of won 17, drawn 10 and lost 8. The Jambos are unbeaten since a 2-1 away defat to St Johnstone on 19th February.
The last meeting between the sides was a 2-1 victory for the hoops at Tynecastle on 26th January, Reo Hatate and Giakoumakis the goal scorers, Liam Boyce was the Hearts scorer.
Time to get the League wrapped up and start celebrating.
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.
