Celtic return to Paradise with the visit of Hibs taking place on Saturday. The squad will be well rested after having had a week to recover from the Scottish Cup victory at Tynecastle. Ange should also have all but two options available, with Starfelt and Maeda the only two doubts with minor injuries received in recent games. Kobayashi and either Abada or Haksabanovic could step in for the injured duo – excellent options who should make for a seemless transition.
Celtic are now closing in on the league title. Ange takes things a game at a time so he will look no further than the challenge to achieve three points. However, if Celtic win their next six matches the league is theirs (assuming theRangers don’t drop any other points). Writing that sounds presumptuous but the Hoops are on a winning streak which spans a dozen games and haven’t been beaten domestically in 20 odd matches.
Momentum is firmly with Celtic and the feel good factor around the club is as good as it’s been since Brendan Rodgers led his Bhoys to an Invincible treble. It’s important we keep that momentum going with a solid performance and home victory at the weekend, before a couple of Derby games, one being a semi final, and the rest of the league run in gets underway.
It’ll likely be full pelt from Ange’s ruthless Bhoys, who started incredibly at Tynecastle last week. Celtic fans can look forward to some fast, free flowing attacking football with a well rested and relentless team.
