Celtic rested and ready

656

Brendan Rodgers had to prepare a tired and injured squad in recent weeks as he competed for the League Cup, Europa League and league title.  He rested players at Motherwell, bringing criticism from some quarters, but won the League Cup, qualified for the next phase of the Europa League and sits three points clear at the top of the Premiership with a game in hand.

At Pittodrie we saw Celtic move through the gears.  Aberdeen are in their best form in years, but could not take a point despite two penalty kicks, one of which should have been tied in a Christmas bow it was so generous.

A little later, Neil Lennon took Hibernian to Ibrox.  Neil has a significantly poorer squad than Brendan and is even more affected by injuries, but he would not be defeated.  If Celtic turn up at Ibrox with the same attitude they or Neil Lennon had yesterday, they will shred Newco.

Odsonne Edouard looked like a player transformed after a short break.  His contribution was critical in delivering the result.  Scott Sinclair’s hat-trick thoroughly answered any questions about his form.  Both are ready to do the necessary on Saturday.

  1. Fairhill Bhoy,

     

     

    You are likely right, you could be wrong howevaaaaaah.

     

     

    Brendan wants this result Big Time. He has got the squad as fresh as possible for this game. ;))

  2. Contemplation time, a 2.5 hr train journey to Wimbledon CSC tomorrow to watch the bhoys, or watch it at home.??? Need to decide soon

  3. Celtic Champs Elect – all I’m saying is, if you are going to bet on a Mikey hatrick then it’d make sense to do that with Bet365 (50/1) rather than Corals (you say 8/1).

     

    Sleep well.

    Who told you it was ticket only in Horse and Barge tomorrow? I am a regular and have never heard of this. The pub will have hundreds of Tims in it tomorrow on first come first served basis. The doors will be open to you pal.

  5. Petec-heard it from the horses mouth,if he plays he won’t be fit?But he won’t.

     

    Up the auld hoose tomorrow

  6. So, as I head for yet another beauty sleep (and, yes, I certainly need them) here’s my 14 players (* – 3 subs) to take part in tomorrow’s Glasgow Derby – Gordon, Lustig, Boyata, Benkovic, Tierney, Ajer*, McGregor, Brown, Ntcham*, Forrest, Christie, Johnson, Edouard*, Sinclair. We WILL rejoice and be glad in it!

     

    Oh and if Tierney is unfit than Johnny Hayes is the man for me.

    I meant to tell you today that my son got a tattoo of The Sacred Heart of Jesus to cover the stab wound that just missed his heart. As he lay in Maryhill bleeding and thinking he was dying, he prayed for Jesus to save him.

    I am sure we will be all Tims in celebration tomorrow at 2.30 as we celebrate 8 in a row.

     

    Sorry to the cautious Tims. This opTIMist thinks we will pump them by 4 or 5 goals.

    The stabbing happened 11 years ago. Young guy fae different scheme in wrong scheme.

     

    It changed his life totally, psychology. Became a different boy. He still only trusts me and his young bro. Sad

    Always remember I know nothing, I reckon his Faith in the Lord Almighty is Real strength, Incredible strength. It is always amazing to get into stories about all the “spooky” things that happen in our lives and I was blown away that you knew about Fearn (Fearne was her name) Abbey. Likewise you will have been amazed by what I told you efter they made that difficult pilgrimage. SBTJ

    It was Amazing that Hibs, after such a long drought, beat the newco in a Scottish Cup Final.

     

     

    They got smacked by Hibs.

     

     

    Hurtin huns, Hurtin huns.

     

     

    I hope Celtic win but I’d take a draw, especially as the whole Rangers Refereeing mob are Officiating. You just know it is gonnae be blatant the day.

     

     

    As JC says….

     

     

    Do your worst.

  22. Garry,

     

     

    I think Scottie Bhoy is getting back to form, he probably has wan of the best ever songs for a player so it is a real shame that isnae being sung as much lately. Need that wee Jamesie Forrest chant going viral, he has been stupendous for Celtic.

     

     

    Mair Logical Song and get the James Forrest wan going.

     

     

    Cracking Huddle as the Train arrived. That was a Confident and Determined huddle to go to the hate factory and come back with something. ;)

    Cautious BRRB gained confidence in the energy in that huddle. Pure Fenian Energy.

    He is selling out stadiums all over Europe and refuses to sign to a Capitalist record label. His family in Castlemilk will produce his music. The internet gets it out to the kids.

    I must admit after not singing the tunes for years, I cannae remember them as well noo – Nothing to do with the copious amounts of alcohol consumed over the years.

     

     

    I refrain from the verses I know I cannae remember @ the Stadium. :D

     

     

    I’m quite happy to report I’ve not been cited by BSR’s misheard CELTIC lyrics yet. My day will come. No doubt.

  29. Almore – Those Calenders are absolutely incredible.

     

     

    Garry will tell you, I was certain the first pic of Broonie was a Photograph.

     

     

    OUTSTANDING.
