Aberdeen liberated of expectations for 90 mins


The euphoria of moving a further three points ahead on Wednesday night now gives way to the serious business of facing Aberdeen at what is expected to be high winds on Sunday.  Celtic always do well at Pittodrie, but you should question your victories as much as your defeats.

Celtic have won seven consecutive games at Pittodrie since back-to-back defeats there in season 2016-16, scoring 20 and conceding four in the process.  It has become a regular party away trip.  This will boost the players’ confidence and should worry Aberdeen, but every game is different.  Aberdeen are third in the table; this is one of our most difficult games left in the league campaign.

Derek McInnes is under pressure for the first time as Aberdeen manager.  The 0-0 he got at Ibrox this month surprised his own fans as much as anyone.  That game was a liberating opportunity for Aberdeen, free of expectations for 90 minutes, they found common purpose.  We will need to work for any points we take back down the road on Sunday.

  1. Lenny Pressure!!!!




    No Doubt that Celtic were under Tremendous Pressure.



    A Lenny team is God Gifted, especially… :)



    I dislike Governments…

  2. Good morning CQN from a wet and windy Garngad



    Silver city 1888 – Great point, did coke heed McGregor and his fellow marching pooder comrade Moreloss not sprint about 50 yards to get in amongst it.



    Let’s see if Sevco face another charge of not controlling their players… I won’t hold my breathe though. Quite funny when you listen to some of the Sevco/zombie fans, they hate the SFA – WTF? They hate referees (they are all against them) especially Beaton WTF..some of them think Gerard will end up walking away into the Liverpool job.😂😂😂😂😂😂 Oh ma sides, where do you even start…



    Delusional, brainwashed, paranoid, neo nazi feckwits.



    Ok, now that’s out.😂 I cannot wait until mañana to see what team Lenny puts out and watch the Leather belts 4-1 to the Bhoys in green.



    D. :)

  3. Good morning friends from a damp, drizzly, windy East KIlbride. Not the best (park)running conditions but hey ho, I’ll give it a go.

    Lennie and the players have made a magnificent recovery from the ignominy of Dec. 28.


    That took character . Gerrard bemoans the lack of same in his mob .



    Governments , Pete ?


    Better than anarchy.


    Maybe :-)

  5. Good morning from a wet and windy North Staffs.


    Will be interesting to see if the EPL take any action against Man citeh – cheating pure and simple. (subject to appeal)

  6. Dav66,



    I know I shouldn’t but whenever the newco Support start chanting…. “f the SFA”.



    I tend to join in. Seems, lately most are in the know about Something…. Always (wisnae there for the Btoonie wan) letting a bad tackle go late in a Celtic Home game NOT TELEVISED LIVE.

  7. Petec- I just find it ironic that the Establishment Klub who have had all sorts of cheating on their behalf hate the organisation that loves them so much.



    Hun on Hun fighting is majestic, should be a televised sport like Wrestling.😂



    D. :)

    Not to mention the hun loving BBC.


    Banned from Ibrox !


    BIting the hands that feed them .


    Love it .

  9. macjay1,



    I’m likely to lose a few Family (me2) when this virus hits hard



    I don’t trust the Chinese, UK or US Governments, Canada especially, for that matter. Swine Flu was obviously nonsense to get dudes vaccinated.



    I Trust in My Lord Jesus Christ.



    Matthew 24,



    Lenny is sent from the Almighty.

  10. lets all do the huddle on

    Dennis has just arrived on my doorstep



    “Piss off Dennis” I said



    “Naw” he retorted



    Oh well, looks like a pub day then

    There is some justification in your concerns.


    Its not good .



    The Chinese ” govt. ” which is essentially totalitarian , and it`s conduct , is the cause for alarm .


    US and UK govts. can be trusted .


    Canada just woke and silly.

    DAVID66 on 15TH FEBRUARY 2020 9:13 AM


    Macjay1 – sorry not Macjay







    D. :)





    A gentleman .


    So ye ur .

    Doesn’t sound good.



    Eddie Toner seems to know what the story is.



    Embdy else?

  14. If Dennis the menace is at Pittodrie the morra. CELTIC should win. Our short play is simply Sensational. If Aberdeen manage to make it an air (the bad wan resides there in the Air on his controlled Earth), then Celtic might struggle.



    Living stone, I presume, if they keep 10 outfield men on the Billy Stark, Livi could get a point at the Factory of JTs PR Hate.



    Sevco get succulent lamb exposed.



    Such a shame Sky has Scottish Fitba contract.

  15. If someone knows a story that was meant to break and hasn’t, why would you not just tell that story??? Instead of saying I know something you dont….



    D. :)

  16. Not another Man in the know piece of crap! Remember the Morelas tragedy , massive story with hunners of tentacles – what happened to that?




    Why doesn’t someone ask Eddie Toner what the story is…………….he seems to know.



    Embdy know this guy?

  18. macjay1,



    I know whit yer saying.



    There is no way, let me rephrase this, thete is no way we can Trust Any Government now.



    The Indian dude, who is InFLUential in his Hindu country says to drink cow urine to stop getting covid. You literally couldn’t make this up.

  19. Alex Thomson. Twitter.



    How long should we watch this space? Is it a good news story or not? Does Phil know about it?



    Premature tweeting / blogging with hints, or in this case no hints, seems to be the way of the world now. Why not just say what it is you know. Or keep it to yourself if it is sub-judice.

  20. Eddie Toner








    Replying to




    If you’re about to run the story I suspect you are. It’s way too serious a subject to trivialise/sensationalise by silly drip feeding tweets like that.





    Disney sound good.

  21. Silver City 1888 on

    I’m afraid it has come out. Scott Brown’s initial registration papers were presented with his first name spelled with one “t”. The mistake was repeated in each subsequent submission. Result all games played since his arrival are 3:0 victories awarded to our opponents.

  22. Seems to be a lot of negative national and international media interest in our club of late.


    Keep winning Celtic ☘️

  23. ERNIE LYNCH on 14TH FEBRUARY 2020 5:07 PM


    The big story about Moreloss that was going to be breaking.



    Should that be filed under ‘squirrels’ along with the likes of the one about thems stealing water from a church?




    Still waiting and have mentioned it a few times.


    Unfortunately Grey or Red seems to be the only intrigue.

  24. listening again to radio clyde last night alex rae is comedy gold,



    he is trying to sat



    stuttered and stammered,



    and he



    stutters and stammers
