All the focus the last 24 hours or so has been on Celtic’s decision to ban the Green Brigade from Celtic Park. Whatever your feelings on it are, and I have expressed by views on The Celtic Star this earlier this morning, it’s now time to put them aside and concentrate on backing the side tonight as we aim to get back to winning ways after a dismissal scoreless draw on Saturday through at Easter Road.
We’ve had a few days to get over the draw with Hibs and I am sure that Brendan and our players will be one hundred percent focused on winning the match tonight.
The Paisley Buddies are riding high in third place and travel to Celtic Park in good spirits after a crushing 4-0 win over bottom of the league St Johnstone on Saturday. They will be a tough nut to crack that’s for sure.
But we too are a very decent side, Scottish Champions, top of the league and unbeaten, and despite dropping two points on Saturday we can go into this game with plenty of confidence.
If we play anywhere near the way we did against Atletico Madrid then we will win comfortably. When we’re on our game we are now a match for anyone in European football and the league table doesn’t lie.
Despite the club’s decision to ban the Green Brigade, I’m sure the rest of the support will be in fine voice. There is a bigger number of us after all, around 58,000 tonight so let each and every one of us do our bit to back the Bhoys and pick up the three points.
Let’s make some noise for the Bhoys.
Just an Ordinary Bhoy
