Get the job done early against St Mirren


St Mirren sat comfortably above Hamilton and Hearts in the league a week ago, but midweek wins for the bottom two sides asks big questions of the Paisley team.  Celtic might feel the pressure eased after they extended their lead at the top of the table to 13 points, but focus on picking up a point or more will be absolute for tomorrow’s visitors.  Defeat for Saints could see Ross County move six points ahead of them on Sunday.

With a visit to Ibrox next weekend, Neil Lennon would surely prefer to get the job done early against St Mirren, allowing him to rest a few legs after what is likely to be our last week of the season with two games.  If we are made to battle into the second half, as we did when St Mirren visited earlier this season, it could be a long afternoon.  Taking a 16 point lead should be sufficient incentive.

  1. Macjay1- that saying brought back memories of my Kate father, he used that saying only talking about cash and when he was telling us to save cash. ” every penny is a prisoner” he used to say. By the way he wasn’t tight fisted he was just trying to pass on some advice to his Bhoys. He loved Family, Glasgow Celtic and Whiskey/Guiness. 😂

    Lot to be said for these little phrases.


    Point made with few words.



    ” He loved Family, Glasgow Celtic and Whiskey/Guiness ” .





    Good bloke , your dad.



  4. Does anyone think Lenny will give Eddie a rest today???



    I am thinking it would be good for Eddie to maybe sit on the bench today and only be called on if needed, maybe the Griff and Bayo up top… No? Only my thoughts.



    I would not make to many other changes.



    Let’s get 3 points and work on team, formation and tactics for a full week, the first time we have been able to do this for months with having no midweek game.😂

    Three points today will reduce the significance of any future slip up .

    Our Chinese friends have been eating things not to our taste for generations, so what’s changed, our experts






    What has changed is that in the space of a generation China has switched from being an agrarian society with a dispersed and sedentary population to a highly industrialized society with huge numbers of people moving from the countryside to the cities.



    And practices that might have been appropriate in isolated rural villages are not appropriate in huge densely populated conurbations.

  14. Good morning, friends, from a grey and drizzly East Kilbride. It is however good to be home. February player of the month results coming out after my cornflakes ;-)

  15. Jobo good to have you back on terra firma



    Aff oot for breakfast at the newly opened cafe on the hill at Spire view, Garngad.

  16. Cornflakes – Real Deal Cereal.



    Never even wanted to try others. Great choice Jobo.



    Looking forward to seeing the results.



    Callum is like an Energy Bunny. 😉



    A very demanding February where we played 8 games across 3 competitions. Domestically we were at the top of our game with 5 victories in the league and 1 in the cup, scoring 21 and conceding just 3. But our 2 games against Copenhagen are likely to be the ones that last longer in the memory. Unfortunately.


    The Player Of The Month award is based purely on the total votes given to each player during that month’s games. The top 3 in previous months were:


    September – JAMES FORREST, Jullien, Christie


    October – SCOTT BROWN, Edouard, Elyounoussi


    November – SCOTT BROWN, Frimpong, Elyounoussi


    December – SCOTT BROWN, Ajer, Jullien/McGregor (tied 3rd)


    January – ODSONNE EDOUARD, McGregor, Ntcham


    For February, in 3rd place on 141 votes we have Christopher Jullien. A very close runner up on 215 votes is Callum McGregor. And this month’s winner on 220 votes, is again ODSONNE EDOUARD.


    A couple more anorak statto posts to follow just to give you some food for thought….

    Current leader will be revealed in 10 minutes!….

  21. So, the player who has appeared 19 times and has ‘won’ an average of 2.11 points per game is…..Jeremie Frimpong. I’m away for a lie down now 😉

  22. If the over 70`s stay away from Celtic Park today, CQN will be overloaded with update requests !


    I will just go and lie about my age.

  25. Long Live the Over Seventies, It’s a trick by the young whippersnappers trying to nab yere tickets.


    Tell them to bugger off.

  26. Time for me to Bugger off. The Arbroath Emerald Express waits for no one.


    Cheerio for now.

  27. Apparently Copenhagen have announced that all their future games this season including Europa League games will be played behind closed doors.


    Think it’s only a matter of time before it affects us. Will cost Scottish Soccer a fortune.


    Now aren’t we lucky that our thrifty CEO stashed the cash/

    ‘I think i just heard on BBC that over 70s being told not to attend games.’






    From a public health perspective that makes no sense.



    The priority at the moment is to slow down the spread of the virus.



    There’s no evidence that age is a factor in contracting the virus or spreading it to others.



    So a 15 year old is just as likely to catch and spread the virus as an 85 year old.



    And given that younger people are more likely to be more mobile and have a wider range of social contacts than older people, younger people probably present a greater risk of spreading the virus than older people.



    Bottom line though is that the games should be behind closed doors and I don’t understand why it hasn’t happened already. Lack of leadership I suppose.
