As the dust settles and we’re all still a bit light-headed from the country’s exceptional result and all-round performance against the mighty Spain, it’s important to remember that cinch Premiership league action returns this weekend and it’s off to Dingwall for Ange Postecoglou and his Celtic side.
After coming from behind a few times recently in the lead-up to the international scene kicking off once again with Euro 2024 qualifying, the boss will be hoping we don’t have to do it again in the Highlands this coming weekend. It’s a difficult venue to visit and one of those places where time can just drift away from you during games.
We want to start brightly and impose our game on former Celtic defender, Malky McKay and his Staggies team. They will be well organised and tough to break down has they have proven before this season and last. It’s a gruesome trip for the supporters too, so nothing less than a victory will suffice as we bid to win our second consecutive title under the Greek-Aussie.
The Bhoys reported to Lennoxtown yesterday in preparation of the game this Sunday afternoon and it was a miserable March day by the looks of it. No doubt Ange will be putting the players through their paces and reiterating to then the importance of starting the game fast and hard as we look to hem the County side in and then deliver the knockout punch early bells.
If that doesn’t happen, I’m sure we all would take another finish like the one Anthony Ralston provided up at Dingwall last December which kept us in the hunt for the Scottish Premiership!
