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.

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

    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.

    Good insight. I like that .

    I had a number of scabby neck pals too .

     

    Good people .

     

    Different upbringing.

     

    That`s all.

    Strange situation.

     

    Just sitting here waiting and willing the day to disappear and the hun game to begin.

     

    And chatting with fellow Tims who`re probably on the same page.

     

    Wouldn`t change it .

     

     

    Like a wee lad before Christmas.

     

    It`s a disease , ah tells ya.

    Genesis is Mega.

     

     

    It is foundational.

     

     

    You mentioned Revelations @ the day out. The Whole BIBLE is Fantastic.

     

     

    Genesis is all about the Book of Revelations and so much more. :))

     

     

    I cannae even begin to explain when I’m pished.

    The word defiance was coined For Lenny.

     

     

    Betcha his heart remains at Celtic and with his fellow Northerner .

     

    His loyalty with Hibs . Where it should be.

     

    Saw the Hibs fans singing ” One Neil Lennon ” at the end of the hun game.

    Dave Grohl is a musical genius and Foo Fighters are the best band in the world today. Fancy going to see them in Bellahouston next summer?

  14. I think that as far as on the pitch matters go, we should be fine, but anything can happen in these poisonous games.

     

    As for matters off the pitch, i hope that the PLC board’s, sleekit, grubby, Old Firm £49 ticket deal, doesn’t result in tragedy being visited upon any Celtic families today, or any other day.

     

     

    Oot.

  15. He really humped the huns. Shattered them when they thought they were there.

     

     

    Stokesy annoyed me but I Loved him when he was on it.
