The Glory and The Dream – Celtic’s Trophy Day and Title Winning Weekend

Both Brendan Rodgers and Elena Sadiku set up an incredible weekend at Celtic Park in their Wednesday night away matches against Kilmarnock and Hearts respectively. Both managers have one more league match this season and they are both at Celtic Park this weekend.

On Saturday it’s Trophy Day for Brendan’s Bhoys after that sensational 5-0 win at Rugby Park last night delivered Celtic’s 54th title, our 12th in 13 seasons.

And on Sunday afternoon Elena Sadiku’s Celtic FC Women side take on Hibs at Celtic Park knowing that a win will see the Ghirls secure a first ever women’s title for Celtic Football club.

Elena’s side kicked off at 6pm last night against Hearts and were full of intent in the first half, scoring three goals, two from the Goal Machine Tash Flint and the other from The Celtic Star’s Player of the Year, Amy Gallacher.

After the break it was all about game management with an eye on Sunday’s title decider – and this time it’s all in Celtic’s hands. Hearts scored a late consolation but that didn’t matter, Celtic needed three points to take the title race to the last day of the season and a win against Hibs and Celtic FC Women are the Champions!

That’s right, a  win and we’re Champions and we know that if the Celtic support turn out in their numbers that is more likely to happen. The Green Brigade surely must lead the way and say that they’ll be there, filling the North Curve and bringing that special Noise to Paradise. And every other Celtic supporter has a chance to be there when history is made.

Let’s get behind the Bhoys on Saturday and celebrate another Trophy Day then roar on our Ghirls on Sunday afternoon so that Celtic becomes the first club to win both mens and womens titles in the same season. Dare to Dream Ghirls, the Celtic support will not let you down…
