Celtic go into tomorrow’s Premiership game on the back of an amazing 58 domestic game unbeaten run. The consistency of Brendan Rodgers’ team over the last 15 months has been nothing short of remarkable. Record breaking in fact!
And when you consider the amount of European games we’ve played, coupled with players away on international duty, there’s not enough words to express how wonderfully the Bhoys have performed.
This season though, we’ve had a wee bit of a blip at Celtic Park.
We all know teams come to sit in, with the exception of Neil Lennon’s Hibs a fortnight ago, so sometimes it can be difficult breaking our opponents down.
Teams depend on riding their luck and the possibility of Celtic not firing on all cylinders, both having contributed to St Johnstone and Hibs taking points away from Paradise. (Although Willie Collum did have a hand in the Edinburgh side’s good fortune.)
However, having hammered Dundee, despite what their turncoat manager said, a couple of weeks ago in the BetFred Cup, I would hope to see the Bhoys get back to winning ways at Celtic Park tomorrow afternoon.
With captain Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong still missing, I’d expect to see the on form Callum McGregor get a starting birth in the middle of the park. Who partners him is anyone’s guess, but I doubt we’ll see Tom Rogic there after his week of traveling.
