Next three games could make or break Celtic’s season

The next three games could make or break our season…

With all the doom and gloom hovering over the club at the minute, it can’t be easily forgotten that we have three very important games coming up. Three very tough games and all of them away from home and we have to get ourselves ready – especially those with tickets for these games – to give the team the backing they need and expect.

The first of these games starts on Saturday lunchtime as we head up to Pittodrie to take on Aberdeen. Barry Robson’s side are a mixed bag at the moment, but it will be a tough game, we can be assured of that. However we have a good record against the Dons particularly at Pittodrie so we can head there with plenty of confidence.

The same can’t be said of our next stop which is Easter Road next Wednesday night. It’s  a ground that Brendan Rodgers has failed to win at in his two spells at the club. We of course were held to a goalless draw in our last trip to face Hibs in the capital, so we know it’s going to be a difficult task. Yet theRangers won there comfortably enough last Wednesday night so there should be nothing to fear of the finest team in Scotland.

After that it’s another trip to Paisley – for the second time in 2024 – to face St Mirren in the Fifth round of the Scottish Cup. We comprehensively beat the buddies at the start of January in their home turf, but this one being a cup tie won’t be as easy. Again theRangers won there at the weekend but that was a league match and St Mirren will see this match against Celtic in the Scottish Cup as their glory moment of the season if they can claim our scalp.

After a shock away defend in the early part of the season to Kilmarnock in the League Cup, Brendan Rodgers will want to make sure that lightning doesn’t strike twice this season and he will be desperate to get back to Hampden and once again get his hands on the Scottish Cup.

We need to win all three games, it’s a must. Anything less is unthinkable. We are currently five points ahead of theRangers having played a game more. We still have an advantage but it’s slender and wins at Pittodrie and Easter Road will deflate their dreams of Celtic slipping.  The Scottish Cup is our chance to play at Hampden this season and there’s no better way to end the season than being Champions then going on to win the Scottish Cup.

Dropping points in the title race can’t be allowed to happen, and exiting the Scottish cup is also out of the question. Time for Brendan and the players to really earn their wages and in doing so create real momentum for the business end of the season.

Come kick-off time at Pittodrie it’s time for our away support to do what they do best.

An ordinary everyday Celtic supporters hailing and still residing in Govan in the shadows of the enemy. I’m a season ticket holder. I Witnessed my first Celtic game in 1988 and have attended when I can ever since. Growing up in the 90s I witnessed Celtic at their lowest, and now appreciate the historic success we enjoy today. I enjoy writing about this wonderful football club and hopefully will continue to do so. I’ve always been a keen writer and initially started this a hobby. My ambition is to one day become as good an author as my fellow Celtic Star colleagues.

  2. Cheer the team at all times, do not get negative with the players, celltic Park is far to quiet nowadays.

    Ou problems stem from Rodgers slow passing style, ball goes everywhere but to kyogo.
    Henrik couldn’t score with the current style imposed by dreary Rodgers.
    The only other problems are the board, Lawells & Nicholson in particular, why do we sign projects when we have a B team out there.
    The team have the ability, they need the playing style changed.
    I hated this same one tactic from Rodgers first time round.
    Now he’s back so is boring negative possession play.
    I said in another post that Kyogo would get more passes if he played in goal.
    That’s why we play so bad.
