It’s ‘only’ Hamilton Accies at home, but Accies have already won at Easter Road and Ibrox this season. Saturday’s reversal to St Johnstone was against the balance of play and their only defeat in seven. They are a team on better form than the Kilmarnock, St Johnstone and Hibs sides who took points from Celtic Park this season were.
We have more than enough in the locker to win this comfortably, but confidence has seldom been higher at Accies, who will have a go. Whatever weaknesses Martin Canning saw in Celtic at Hibs on Sunday, I don’t expect them to materialise tonight, though.
Celtic’s form has been imperious for years. There have been occasional dips, like the current run of one win in four games, but you need to go back to September 2014, when Ronny Deila was finding his feet, since there was a period with only one win in five. It’s not going to happen tonight.
Most of all, I want to see Celtic move the ball out from the back better than they have recently. Kris Ajer performed this task very well in the recent mauling of Motherwell, he should start again.
US and Canadian Celtic fans
Our good pal, RWE, has commissioned car number plates bearing the Foundation logo, which are available on eBay for a bargain $15.99. These can be displayed on the front of vehicles in many US and Canadian states and territories. All proceeds go to the Celtic Foundation.
I love hearing about initiatives like this. Fans who just get off their bums and ‘do something Celtic’. If you are new around these parts, you can read a wee bit more about RWE on the official site here.
