Celtic’s run of games at home against low ranking teams continue tomorrow against Hamilton Academical. These matches are always straightforward on paper but it takes lots of energy to subvert any team of professionals. If we get a comparable performance in the opening period to what was on display against Airdrie and St Mirren, Accies will be in for a difficult afternoon.
Assuming Celtic do their job right, we can hope that Aberdeen take something from Kilmarnock at Pittidrie. Killie are currently only a point off the pace, although Celtic have a game in hand, against St Johnstone next midweek.
With his new strikers playing so well, Brendan Rodgers will be in no hurry to rush Odsonne Edouard back. I am also keen to see more of Ewan Henderson.
I once heard “We gave the world Hugh McIlvanney.” He was good enough to be a national boast. He lilov Big Jock too. Sigh.
