Taylor as important for today as injured strikers


We have all heard the public health message, but this week in particular, the health message is a private affair.  Become infected now, and whatever plans we have to prepare for and enjoy Christmas are in jeopardy.  If you are going to the game today, do what you can to protect yourself.  Bring sanitiser and use it regularly.  Wear a Celtic scarf as a muffler.  Think of those in front of you and beside you and take a test before you leave.  Look after your community.

On paper, the selection of Kyogo and James Forrest appear to be the major factors for Celtic.  In reality, even if selected, both will be short of full sharpness.  If either makes it, Liel Abada will be able to play on the left, but Celtic will either have a patchwork selection of patchwork player fitness in attack.

Greg Taylor is perhaps the most important selection issue. Hibs were schooled by Celtic at Easter Road this season, however, when the home side eventually got into the game, it was Martin Boyle, The Scourge of Newco, who caused us problems down their right.  Celtic’s left back position is more crucial for this game than any other, let’s hope Taylor is selected.  If not, we need Forrest in the team to allow Josip Juranovic to move to left back with Anthony Ralston at right back.

It has been a long two years since we have gathered to celebrate a trophy success.  Enjoy, take care and stay safe.

  6. I could go on.



    C’MON THE CELTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Not going today because I’ve tested positive – Christmas in isolation (get out of my room and back into the world on 27th). To echo Paul, – Stay safe, mask, hand sanitiser etc and think of others. Last few times I’ve been at Celtic Park most of the people on the train and moving around the stadium haven’t worn masks – please do so.



  8. Good luck Celtic, give it your all, dont give up ever, take Beaton out of the game and bring the Cup back, all the best to Ange Callum and all the players.

    (Stop it PB



    Jesus Phil I’m no even playing😂😂😂😂😂🍺

  10. Regarding Higgins, I told my kids a few weeks back -after all the CSCs signed the letter – that the appointment wouldn’t happen but Celtic would never say anything, never say they were going to make the appointment and never say they changed their mind. It just wouldn’t happen.

  11. Best wishes to all suffering from this dreadful virus, take care.



    Up the Celts – COYBIG


    YNWA HH 🍀🍀

  12. Just a quick mention as we are homing in at Hampden.



    Story about the SPFL taking over the running of the womens’ game. Is this ’empire-building’ by Doncaster.



    The ramifications could be far-reaching……..but powder kept dry till another day.



    Certain starters today in my view– Hart, Ralston Starfelt,CCV, Jura, Calmac, Rogic, Turnbull, Bitton – who will fill the forward positions?

  13. Big Jimmy



    Happy birthday mate.take it easy and hopefully we will have a cup to celebrate.take it easy






    Powerful and humble stuff from our manager.enjoy the game I am heading to now.







    Bring the cup home bhoys.do your best.work for each other.



    Enjoy your day Celts




  14. Wear a scarf as muffler ? Wearing a f*ckin mask ! Better still, don’t go. Otherwise, feel free to congregate in a super spreader with the most virulent form of a deadly virus we’ve seen yet. Please stay safe; you don’t want this virus, you don’t want long covid, you don’t want to die.
