CELTIC have five games to play this month in three competitions with five different kick-off times.
Four of the matches are in Glasgow and the champions get the ball rolling with Saturday’s Premiership meeting against Kilmarnock at Parkhead which has a 3pm start.
Next up, it’s the Viaplay/League Cup semi-final against the same Ayrshire opponents at Hampden Park on Saturday January 14 with a 5.30pm commencement.
HAPPY DAZE…Kyogo Furuhashi and Filipe Jota celebrate the Japanese striker’s opening goal in the 5-0 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park in August.
The Hoops won the trophy under its guise of the Premier Sports League Cup last season with a 2-1 win over Hibs at the national stadium in December 2021.
It’s back to the league in the Wednesday January 18 match against St Mirren in the east end of Glasgow with a 7.45pm kick-off.
The Hoops play in the Scottish Cup for the first time in season 2022/23 when Championship side Morton provide the challenge at Parkhead on Saturday January 21 which has a 12.15pm green light.
And the curtain comes down on another hectic month – which got underway in the 2-2 stalemate at Ibrox on Monday – when Celtic travel to Tannadice for another Premiership encounter against Dundee United on Sunday January 29 which gets underway at 4pm.
HAPPY DAZE…Celtic’s hat-trick stars Liel Abada and Kyogo Furuhashi celebrate in the Hoops’ 9-0 romp at Tannadice in August.
