If Eddie Howe wants to learn about Celtic before taking charge as expected on 1 June, he will have plenty of scope to see how they perform in challenging environments. Between now and then, we will play at Ibrox as often as at Celtic Park, with trips to Easter Road and Pittodrie and the possibility of two Hampden dates thrown in.
With no undue disrespect to Livingston, win, lose or draw, there is little to be learned about how we perform against them at Celtic Park on Saturday, there can certainly be few positives for our prospective new manager to take away. After that, we have Ibrox, Pittodrie, Ibrox, then hopefully a Scottish Cup semi-final. Those who want to be part of his plans going forward, or who want a move south, will have their stage.
There are a few at Lennoxtown who think they could have done better this season. Prove it in the next five games.
