WILLIE COLLUM has been handed the whistle for Celtic’s must-win fixture versus Aberdeen on Sunday. The Scottish Champions are needing to bounce back from a horrible showing versus Rangers on Saturday and a win at Pittodrie is the way to start recovering from the 2-0 defeat.
Collum, who officiated the opening game of the season (a 5-1 win over Hamilton Accies) will be joined by David Doig and Gavin Duncan as linesman with Andrew Dallas as fourth official.
Celtic need to improve dramatically from the showing on Saturday and Neil Lennon will know that if performances don’t improve then there will be fans calling for his head. Celtic were due to play Aberdeen at home already this year but due to the Scottish Government’s decision to postpone their game after Bolingoli & eight Aberdeen players had to isolate.
There can be no more mistakes and slip ups, Celtic need to close the gap as a matter of urgency with the COVID-19 second wave in full flow. Any risk that the league could be called means that Celtic need to claw back the initiative and that will involve winning games. We have the better squad but now we need to find a way to utilise it.
