Sunday’s game at Tynecastle is a bit of a dead rubber for both Hearts and Celtic. The home team cannot finish higher or lower than sixth place, while the Champions will be rested after a few days in Tenerife.
I know you want to rattle a few goals past Hearts; make up for the defeat there earlier in the season and, well, because they are Hearts, but this should not be a priority. We are two weeks away from a Scottish Cup Final and the opportunity to become the first team in Scottish history to win back-to-back trebles.
Neither Motherwell nor St Johnstone have much to play for in their game this weekend, but you can be sure Motherwell will have an eye on the Cup Final. They will rest players and allow strains to recover. We must do the same.
I would rest the captain, Ajer, Boyata, Tierney and Forrest. Set the priority right and be ready for Hampden.
Celtic FC Foundation, Ben Nevis Huddle
After a three year gap, the Celtic fans will be back on Ben Nevis on mass on 30 June, to raise funds for the Foundation. This is a rare opportunity for those of us unfamiliar with mountains to ascend Britain’s tallest in the company of supportive Celtic fans.
Participants are asked to raise (only) £130 for the Foundation. It is a great opportunity, see here for more details and to sign up this weekend.
