Video: Watch the Bhoys train ahead of the Glasgow Derby

The time is almost upon us again when all the talking ceases to be and it’s just the eleven men on the pitch for our team that can do the business. At every single juncture we have been written off this season by the Scottish footballing commenteriat, regardless of what goes on at Ibrox. They’ve had to change their manager only a few short months into that campaign, yet it is Celtic who are slaughtered mercilessly in the media.

We haven’t by any stretch of the imagination had a blinder this year, but if we can keep together and unified, we might just still yet emerge from the fires of Hell as Three-in-a-row Scottish Premiership Champions. That all depends on the outcome of the fixture in Govan this Sunday and it can’t be stressed enough how much we need not to lose this one.

There are often instances in managers’ tenures at football clubs that can often feel like a watershed moment, and for Brendan Rodgers and his second spell at Celtic, this feels as if it could be it. If we manage to win this one, it could catapult us to summit of Scottish football where we would have a very good opportunity to stay there for the remainder of the footballing calendar.

Players have returned from injury and things feel slightly more optimistic than they did a few dark weeks ago. Losing vital prices of the winning mahcine has inhibited us tenfold this year and with Cameron Carter-Vickers, Reo Hatate and most crucially, Callum McGregor returning to the stating line-up once more, all hope is not lost that we can salvage a League and Cup Double. The guys were put through their paces up at Lennoxtown on Friday ahead of this massive clash and you can have a sneaky look at how things went in the video below…

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
