What a club, what a support. Just incredible.


In time we will forget, but for much of Celtic’s 0-9 win at Tannadice earlier this season, Dundee United held their own and forced the champions off their game.  An early Kyogo goal provoked United into action.  It was Kyogo’s second, on the 40th minute, that did the damage.  Before the break it was 0-4.

That game was Jack Ross’ seventh and final game in charge and eclipsed their 0-7 reversal in Alkmaar two weeks earlier.  In the vernacular, United ‘chucked it’.  We could expect a change in attitude when, after the players got their way, they arrived at Celtic Park in November.  The visitors levelled on 87 minutes, only to be denied a point by the team that never, ever, chucks it.

Since the World Cup break, United have lost only once in six outings, a home defeat to Newco.  That run took them off the bottom of the table; they are now tied on 20 points with Kilmarnock and Motherwell, three above Ross County.

Fully rested and in great form, I expect no problems for Celtic on Sunday.  United can look back on their early season woes and comfort themselves with the fact that at least their 7-1 aggregate hammering came to the team currently second in the Dutch league, whereas another Scottish club had the same outcome over two games against the fifth-place Eredivisie side.

Paradise Pit Stop

Every now and then the Celtic FC Foundation, YOUR Foundation, does something that stops me in my tracks.  With the cost-of-living crisis having such an effect, from next week they will open the doors to Celtic Park lounges on Monday and Thursday evenings, when volunteers from the club and Foundation will serve food, provide warm shelter and facilities for kids to play and study.

Celtic cannot solve the problems of poverty, but opening their doors twice a week to provide warm food and shelter to the needy is an incredible act which reflects our founding principles.  If you are involved in this, well done.  If you can only contribute monetarily, your efforts are invaluable.

What a club, what a support.  Just incredible.

  7. Ange Postecoglou says “there’s still potential movement” to come in the January transfer window for Celtic, but hinted that outgoings are more likely than further new arrivals.



    Forward Oh Hyeongyu this week became the club’s fifth capture of the window, which closes on Tuesday.



    Josip Juranovic and Moritz Jenz have left and striker Giorgos Giakoumakis has been heavily linked with a move.



    “More likely out than in,” said Postecoglou when asked about transfers.



    “There’s nothing definite at the moment. Players are in charge of their careers, assessing what the best options are for them.



    “There’s still a fair bit of speculation around him (Giakoumakis). Until something gets resolved either way, it’s about seeing how he’s training and how he’s feeling about things.”



    When asked whether Celtic’s recruitment was done, the Australian joked: “I could say, ‘yes’ but then it would be boring for the next few days for all of us. So, I’ll just stay we’ll stay agile and see what happens and I can get asked these questions again on the weekend.”

    As well as South Korea forward Oh, Canada right-back Alastair Johnston, Japan midfielder Tomoki Iwata and his compatriot Yuki Kobayashi, a defender, have arrived at the Scottish Premiership leaders this month.



    Postecoglou was asked if Oh would feature against Dundee United at Tannadice on Sunday given the striker has not played since November.



    “We’ll see how he goes,” the manager replied. “He’s in good physical condition. I’m keen to get him involved as soon as possible.



    “It seems it’s been a long time coming. We identified him pretty early and to be honest I thought he’d be the first one in the building.



    “His club weren’t really keen on letting him go. His form just kept getting better. There were times where I didn’t think it was going to happen.



    “Really happy to get it over the line. Really excited to get him part of the set-up. He’s a young guy but he’s really mature and really determined to make an impact.”
