Bad attitude

The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that the attitude of the players was not to blame for the recent defeat at the hands of Hibernian. Neil Lennon has come under intense pressure in recent weeks due to a run of poor results, which has left the team not having a great advantage in terms of the league title.


Celtic Football Club v Ross County

Currently at the top of the Scottish Premier League, Celtic take on Ross County on 22 January at home. Ross County is currently third from the bottom of the Scottish Premier League table, and just one point ahead of St Mirren and 6 above Dundee.

So, will this be the one sided match that most people are predicting? Certainly the bookmakers believe that it will and currently odds on a Celtic victory are around 2/11, though for the diehard Ross County fans who enjoy betting on their club, they can find odds as high as 12/1, and a draw is priced at around 7/1.



Barcelona has defeated Celtic in a Champions League match played at Camp Nou, Barcelona on Tuesday. Barcelona won the match by 2-1. This was the third match for Barcelona in the ongoing Champions League tournament and Barca has won all three of them.

On the other hand, this was the first defeat for Celtic in the tournament. Celtic has also played three matches in the ongoing Champions League, but, has managed to win only one of them. Celtic currently has 4 points in three matches.



The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that he is extremely happy following the 1-0 win over Aberdeen in the opening match of the season, according to the Anfield Roar fanzine. Neil Lennon has said that it was extremely important for Celtic to have taken the three points in the first match in order to push for another title.


Celtic's Alan Thompson has said that he is extremely certain that the final old firm derby of the season will not be different from the ones that have been played over the years.

This is certainly a unique situation whereby this could be the last old firm derby ever. Rangers are currently in a difficult financial situation after having been put into administration following their failure to pay the taxes. It is thought that Rangers are in debt burden that could be as high as £ 50 million. No buyer has been found for the club as of yet, which has put their future in huge doubt.


Celtic manager Neil Lennon will be sitting in the stands for the next two matches for Celtic, as he has been given a touchline ban for his comments made about the referee Collum after the 1-0 defeat at the hands of Kilmarnock in the Scottish League Cup final.

Celtic recently won the title and there has been a lot of praise for Neil Lennon and the amazing work he has been doing at Celtic Park.

However, this might come as a sour grape for the manager, who saw his side suffer a shock defeat at the hands of Kilmarnock in the final of the Scottish League Cup.


Celtic managed to enter into the semifinals of the Scottish cup after a 4-0 win over Dundee United, but Neil Lennon continued to not face the media after reportedly being extremely unhappy with the coverage of his club.

Celtic managed to record this thumping victory over 10 man Dundee United, which helped them enter into the semifinals.


Celtic star Emilio Izaguirre has said that he expects to come back strong over the next few months in order to capture the Player of the Year award he won last season.

The 25-year-old full-back suffered a serious injury recently and has been out of the first team action for quite a while now.

However, speaking on his return from first-team action, the defender has said that he expects the title to be his once he returns to form. In the absence of Emilio Izaguirre, players like Gary Hooper and Scott Brown have become the favourites of the crowd.


Celtic have recently claimed that they do not require the presence of their long standing rivals Rangers in order to be successful.

This comes as a retaliation to comment’s made my Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond, who claimed that the survival of Rangers was crucial for not only Celtic, but the whole of Scottish football to prosper.

Celtic’s rivals Rangers have been plunged into administration, with £8 million being unpaid in tax since Craig Whyte took over the club in May.


Celtic once again reasserted their dominance at the top of the Scottish Premier league table by winning against Hearts 4-0.

The morale boosting victory gave Celtic the opportunity to maintain the gap at the top of the table to four points. This is the same Celtic team that lost to Hearts at Tynecastle in October.
