After a tenacious win in Paisley on Friday Celtic were back in the groove last night. Passing was swift and accurate, movement – perpetual. It was a quiet game for Kris Commons, which at an earlier time would have meant a game with few chances for Celtic, but the prodding of Johansen, Armstrong and Mackay-Steven ensured Thistle played much of the game trying to chase shadows.
The return from injury of two of our three right backs, Adam Matthews and Darnell Fisher, has given the team better balance, although Adam still looks to be finding his sharpness.
John Guidetti established his early season reputation against Thistle with a League Cup hat trick but that seemed like a lifetime ago last night. The striker had the odd chance but the terror he inspired in defenders a few months ago has gone.
Enormous thanks to winning bidder for our Open Golf Championship Hospitality competition, which finished a moment ago raising £2050 for our School Kitchen project for Mary’s Meals in Malawi. Thanks to Eden Mill Distillery and Brewery in St Andrews and all who participated.
It was a stunning effort and the money is now in place to complete the fourth CQN school kitchen! Well done to all who played their part.
Celtic sponsor, Magners, who have helped from the beginning of this recent school kitchen project, have a competition to play at Lennoxtown and Celtic Park. You can enter your 7-a-side team into the Magnificent 7s competition before 5pm Wednesday 15th. It would be good to see CQN represented. Qualifying round takes place at Lennoxtown on Sunday 26 April with the finals at Celtic Park.
