There’s a disconcerting level of chatter about players’ fitness ahead of the weekend game despite the fact that we face Ross County tomorrow evening at Celtic Park. County fell apart in October, losing four to Celtic, Motherwell and Aberdeen, but they’ve lost only once since then, a run of form which has seen them leap to the top half of the table.
This game is no ‘gimmie’. One game at a time, Celtic.
The players were back at Lennoxtown yesterday after taking Christmas day off. The rest and associated uptake in calories was probably worthwhile for a team which has played seven games already this month.
Raffle for two tickets for Ibrox game on Hogmanay
You can win two tickets for Celtic’s visit to Ibrox on Saturday, courtesy of club sponsor, Intelligent Car Leasing, in aid of our Mary’s Meals project. Funds raised will go towards putting food on the table for kids attending the Sean Devereux Primary School in Liberia.
To win all you need to do is donate a minimum of £5 at this MyDonate page AND email me your address: email@example.com , putting Liberia in the subject line of your email. The winner will be chosen from the emails received and will be verified with the donations, so please put a common name or pseudonym in both.
The competition is open for one day only, closing at 13:00 tomorrow, Wednesday, 28th, so there’s not going to be a lot of time to enter. It’s a great chance to get your Hogmanay off to a flier with a friend.
The money goes directly to Mary’s Meals and will be allocated to the Sean Devereux school within days. Even if you don’t win, you’ll have done a great thing for spending £5, to get on with it.
Stunning work again by Intelligent Car Leasing, who could have used these tickets for corporate clients but chose to help our appeal instead. Tickets will be posted securely (or I’ll deliver by hand, if you’re local). Please make sure you monitor your mailbox or leave a phone number.
And yes, I get the irony: one game at a time Celtic/win tickets for the game after next.
