The dust has settled on last weekend’s game v the rangers at Ibrox. With no ticket allocation for away fans, it was pubs and clubs around the globe that were packed with Celtic fans. Publicans everywhere rubbing their hands with plenty of hangovers to be nursed at work on Monday after overindulging on Sunday.

The Glasgow Derby remains one of the biggest games in club football and these are the fixtures that every Celtic fan looks forward to seeing each season and plan holidays and family occasions around them. Some won’t admit it or say it’s just another game but it’s not.

All eyes now however will be on Celtic Park at 3pm when St Mirren are the visitors. In the most important game on the season.

The game is SOLD OUT and only 3 points will do if we want to keep our title hopes alive. Yes, there will be still 5 games to go after the split, but we must win to keep the dream in our own hands.

Nobody knows what twists and turns lay in store from now until the end of the season. It will be a rollercoaster ride the closest in a while. We have all been there on the last day of the season. Winning a title has to be one of the greatest feeling in the World. Losing is the worst!

Once the final whistle is sounded on Saturday all thoughts will turn to the spilt fixtures and for this Celtic fan once they are finalised it will be straight onto the airline websites to get booked up and hopefully get tickets in the ballot for the remaining away games.

You could be forgiven for turning all your thoughts towards the remaining SPFL games, but we are still competing for the two remaining domestic trophies still up for grabs. The Scottish Cup, another great day out to wrap up the season before the summer holidays.

We dominated the first half at Ibrox last week and showed battling qualities in the second half, but individual errors cost us in the end. The home side celebrated like they won the game at home. While our bhoys as the away team looked like they had lost.

The team looks stronger now than at any point this season. There seems to be a calmness now around the Celtic team as we enter the business end of the season.

Celtic fans will now kick every ball and will go through every emotion during each 90 minutes from now till the end of the season. There will be nerves, foul language and checking scores when our rivals play from now till the end of the season but it’s all to play for and I can’t wait.
