A cold night in Paradise beckons, likely starts for Mikey Johnston and Tomoki Iwata

Three points is the most important thing, but it would be wonderful to be treated to a great performance from Brendan’s Celtic side, just like the one against Aberdeen….

Tonight’s clash with Hibs, just like every other Scottish Premiership game, is important and the most vital thing is ultimately earning all three points. But it would be good to see us put in a decent performance especially after the lacklustre displays we’ve been subjected to the last three games.

Hibs are going well under new manager Nick Montgomery and held us to a goalless draw in our last game against them at Easter Road towards the end of October. They will be a tough nut to crack as all our domestic opposition are at home, but we are more than capable of winning the match.

Winning ugly is good, it guarantees you three points after all and it’s what wins titles, but we also want to be entertained. It would be good to be treated to a display of the standard we witnessed against Atletico and Aberdeen at Celtic Park. Fast flowing precision football with goals to show for it.

The Celtic support in Madrid

It’s what the supporters need after a disappointing last few showings against Motherwell at Celtic Park, Atletico in Madrid that St Johnstone in Perth at the weekend where the first half performance was dreadful to say the least.

We could see both Mikey Johnston and Tomoki Iwata getting rare starts and both players will be determined to show what they can do. Iwata playing as the defensive midfielder would allow Callum McGregor to put forward into his favoured position. There’s also an argument for Oh getting a start, with Kyogo dropping to the bench. He’s looked jaded in recent weeks and could provide real energy coming on after an hour.

Overall we can’t complain, as we are top of the table and unbeaten, but we want to see football played the Glasgow Celtic way. Hopefully that what we’ll witness tonight in what is sure to be a cold night in Paradise, with only the Bhoys and maybe the Bovril to warm us up.

It’s also one of those rare occasions when we are playing at the same time as theRangers who are at Tynecastle to play Hearts, so we’ll hear from the support if there’s any good news coming through from the capital. It’s always great to hear a wee roar go round the ground on occasions like this.

Remember to get wrapped up and we’ll see you at Paradise!
