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.

  7. Pope Francis asks us to Live a simpler Life. Dinnae be so materialistic. Please for petes sake.

     

     

    This is Monumental Advice.

  8. If you have Prayers. Pray for Leaders. They have the biggest burdens.

     

     

    It pisses me off that we can’t be a Corinthian type Club.

     

     

    Too many Cheats oot there.

    Papa Francis should share his wealth to help alleviate poverty. Show by example Papa!

    Mate

     

     

    I am usually there but on that occasion , no.

     

    I couldn`t watch and had to leave Cheers bar when Tom took the last penalty against the hun some years back.

     

    Turned out to be a good move on my part and on Tom`s.

     

    Apparently , the hun reps. hissed off Dermot the Desmond that he hired Brendan

     

    And then Rangers rangeresed it against Hibs in the Final .

     

     

    All`s weel that ends weel

     

     

    To quote the Bard.

  11. We are actually a Corinthian Club.

     

     

    Sorry – thinking about things.

     

     

    Celtic have been impeccable in their Behaviour for so long.

    Told Petec today that the only time I felt emotional at fitba when Celtic were not involved was 2016 Scottish Cup Final and Sunshine on Leith at the end. Magical

    It was awesome to hear the stuff about Gerry Cinnamon from you and that is what Grass Roots is all about.

     

     

    Pope Francis is very limited, the Queen is even more Limited.

     

     

    They get wan main comment a year where they seem to be Free.

     

     

    Pray for the Leaders.

    Always had a soft spot for the Hibees.

     

    Pat Stanton et al.

     

     

    That game had me jumping out my seat.

     

    Particularly the involvement of ex Celts .

     

    Just rubbed their blue noses in it.

     

     

    Sunshine on Leith. WOW.

  16. The leaders are milking us workers. Nae prayers fae me.

     

    End Poverty! Eat the Rich!

     

    Sorry Pete

  17. MacJay

     

    I lived on Easter Road for 2 years in 80’s.

     

    Hibees are jealous of us.

     

    I don’t like Hibees.

     

    Like Hearts fans less.

     

    Glad Hibs done the hun though. ?????

    I`m not very digestible , Garry.

  19. Skillz – Sorry

     

     

     

    Garry Bhoy – No problemo, we are being utterly used.

     

     

    The Word is so important.

     

     

     

    Audio jibber jabber of the New Testament is Dani Behr. That works better for me. I’ve got it there but not listened to it for about 4 years or more. I think I should get back into it.

    I don`t like generalising , but here seem to be a significant cohort of Hearts fans who are indeed detestable.

     

    How did their Board respond to the disgraceful assault on Lenny ? The silence of the hunnish .

     

    Hibs / Hearts game to be recorded .

     

    Onyersel , Lenny .

     

     

    John Knox. Mary Queen of Scots . Edinburgh.

     

    Goes way back.

    No leader , mate.

    Happy to be one of the punters.

    I know you read the bible daily. The sheep are us. Where is He taking us in these days. Possibly end of days time?

  23. MacJay

     

    When I lived in Embra, I found Hibs and Hearts fans to be equally detestable. Preferred my bluenose pals in Glasgow to them. That is the truth.
