The Official Celtic Thread

Celtic away to Dundee up next. The Dees showed against the huns that they can't be taken for granted. If we can sort out our midfield and bring a hopefully fully recovered CalMac more into it, and Hatate can last the 90 minutes I think we should have enough to get over them but there should be no room for complacency. They'd like nothing better than putting one over on us.
There's talk that the season-ending prognosis on Maeda was premature and that he's actually back running at training. Hopefully it's true and he's as right as rain for the match on the 18th having played before then. Fingers crossed because he could be giving their hall-of-famer nightmares
Good win for Celtic. Only had half an eye on the first half during the Cork game but it seemed a little flat. Second half Dundee seemed the better team for large parts of it. Joe Hart booked at the end for time wasting. Ref added on time They got back into it with an own goal from [TWEET] [TWEET]

Missed the game as well but am hearing we were very poor. Fans of other teams are saying it's looking like ourselves and the huns are playing really poor stuff, almost as though neither side wants it enough.

Still, 3 points ahead, a goal difference of +5 and just 4 games to go now. I'd take a draw in the Glasgow derby.

Think Beaton has reffed two of our four games since he was called out by BR for bizarre influence in the game against Hearts.

Lint has some revealing stats:



Last 4 league games fouls per yellow card:
Celtic:9 fouls per yellow.
Against:13 fouls per yellow.
Rangers:22.5 fouls per yellow.
Against:6.5 fouls per yellow.

Beaton reffed 4 games for Rangers 2023-24:
35 fouls 2 yellows.(17.5 fouls per card)
Against:55 fouls 12 yellows.(4.6 fouls per card)

Beaton has reffed 6 Celtic games 2023-24:
67 fouls 11 yellows 1 red.(6 fouls per card)
Against:65 fouls 12 yellows.(5.4 fouls per card)
Think the only card the huns have picked up in the last three games were one for punching the ball (no not Goldson ;) ) into the net, and this one by Butland where they're all up in arms and don't think it was even a foul because Butland got the ball first before wiping out his Smurren opponent. How quickly they forget the penalty they were awarded against Celtic

Huns are rarely troubled by their inconsistencies. The Hunettes won the cup semi on Saturday too. 2-0. Celtic offered very little tbh. Glasgow City on Wednesday evening which is on BBC Alba. Win that and the train is back on track for the league.
