CELTIC have fired in TEN goals in two Premiership games against Hibs this season.

Former Celtic favourite David Marshall, the Hoops kid who became an overnight sensation with his shut-out display against Barcelona in   the Nou Camp in March 2004, was beaten six times at his old stomping ground in October.

The one-time Scotland international No.1 was helpless in his side’s 6-1 loss with James Forrest, thumping in a hat-trick to become a Hoops Ton-Up Bhoy, Giorgos Giakoumakis (2) and Daizen Maeda on the mark.

And three days after Christmas it was a similar story when Aaron Mooy (2), Kyogo Furuhashi and Maeda were on the scoresheet in a 4-0 success at Easter Road.

SHOUT OF ORDER…David Marshall faces the Celtic firing squad again tomorrow.

Marshall will face his old team again at Parkhead tomorrow afternoon and could face another torrid 90 minutes.

However, Ange Postecoglou’s side will be taking absolutely nothing for granted.

Winger Filipe Jota said: “I’ve been in football long enough to understand that every game is different, so I don’t know if it’s going to be the same again – we don’t think like that.

“Teams have different approaches in every game, and we don’t adapt with the others, we just stick with our principles and our philosophy of the game.

“So, that’s what we are going to do and I hope we can deliver the result in the end.”

FLYING HIGH…Filipe Jota skips past stranded Ibrox midfielder Malik Tillman in the 2-1 Viaplay League Cup Final triumph at Hampden last month.

The Portuguese maverick, speaking to Celtic TV, added: “We look forward to this game like we look forward to the other games.

“It will be another one for us to go on and compete and be the best version that we can be, so I’m definitely happy to go again and compete.

“Of course, we know what our goals and our objectives are for the season. But we’re not there yet, so we’ll need to keep on winning games and developing, so that’s what we want to do.

“Every game is a different game, there are exciting times ahead for sure because this is the last run of the season, but, as I said before, I think we just need to focus on the next game.”
