If you are missing your competitive football fix you’ll have devoured the fixture list this morning but it’s still over seven weeks until the first league game of the season, when the league flag will fly before we face Ross County (we will have played a Champions League qualifier five weeks from today).
Thereafter, due to the postponement of a home game to allow for a financially lucrative friendly, Celtic are on the road six times in nine league fixtures, so if our away form is anything like it was for much of last season, it’s likely we will be in the mix, instead of clear leaders, come the end of October.
After an absence of some time, Celtic have a local derby to look forward to. They meet Partick Thistle at Firhill on 26th October with the return game at Celtic Park set for New Year’s Day. We are scheduled for two trips to the Capital within a month but don’t go booking your flights for the Hearts game in September, just in case…..
Curious news today that Celtic director and BT chief executive, Ian Livingston, will leave the telecoms company after five years at the top to become Minister for Trade and Investment in the coalition government. Livingston will serve from the House of Lords. How about boosting the ailing Scottish football industry by lobbying for a merger with a neighbouring league?
