Saturday’s victory is unlikely to feature in the season’s highlights DVD but it was our ninth consecutive domestic win and despite a few shaky moments at the back we’ve conceded only twice during that run. That compares to only three clean sheets in our nine previous domestic games.
Despite selecting from the same personnel, Celtic have a vastly improved defensive unit; comparable to last season’s record breakers.
Europe is different. We conceded home and away to Salzburg and Astra, keeping a clean-sheet only at home to Thursday’s opponents, Dinamo Zagreb.
Done in the name of Celtic fans yesterday:
Did you read that the Celtic Foundation hosted 120 people who use the services of the Glasgow Simon Community yesterday? The Community have assisted the homeless for over 40 years. Community chief exec, Lorraine McGrath, said, “Too many people still find themselves without a home; more than 6500 people registered as homeless in Glasgow last year alone.”
You can get involved with the Foundation’s work this Christmas by coming to the game a little early on Sunday and shaking a collection bucket. As well as the Simon Community, the Foundation aim to help Glasgow East Women’s Aid, Spirit Aid, Loaves and Fishes, The Wayside Club, Glasgow City Mission, the Scottish Refugee Council, The Invisibles and Yorkhill Children’s Charity.
That’s an incredible amount of work to carry out in your name over the coming weeks. You can sign up to help with the bucket collection here. You’ll enjoy it.
