Celtic face Heart of Midlothian this Sunday, midday in the Ladbrokes Premiership in the Capital but the Edinburgh based club have major injury concerns. Hearts manager Craig Levein says midfielder Arnaud Djoum is likely to be out until after the winter break. Djoum was subbed off in Hearts' midweek 2-0 win over Dundee with winger Jamie Walker and defender Aaron Hughes also missing the game on Sunday. The hosts also have defender John Souttar suspended and Rory Currie, Malaury Martin and Ashley Smith-Brown are injured. Souttar has also added he has suffered memory loss from a heard injury not so long ago. ~ TFD - #hearts #heartofmidlothian #rorycurrie #malaurymartin #ashleysmithbrown #johnsouttar #aaronhughes #jamiewalker #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
All Celtic season ticket holders will have received this letter through the post today. Celtic are cutting down on the use of wrong tickets (i.e. an adult using a child's ticket, someone 'borrowing' a ticket for a game, 3rd party ownership of tickets etc.) If you're going to the games just remember buy your OWN ticket as you're most likely going to be chucked right out if you do anything other than that! ~ TFD - #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
Brendan Rodgers has opened up about, almost joining Roberto Mancini's coaching staff at Manchester City: "I was in talks with Manchester City about maybe going back there as a first-team coach. I was rejected as a manager at Reading and was in between jobs and I didn't think I was going to get a manager's job. I spoke to the club, all went well and I flew out to Milan to meet Roberto. We had a nice chat and it ended up that not long after that I got the job at Swansea as a manager. He's a good guy, nice guy but I haven't saw him in a couple of years." ~ TFD - #robertomancini #zenit #manchestercity #uefaeuropaleague #europaleague #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
Celtic 3-1 Hamilton Academical A pretty routine win at Paradise on a freezing cold night in one of the worst Scottish winters in recent history. Scotty Sinclair got his goal tally for this season up to 15 with Leigh Griffiths getting his first minutes of December. Only around 10 minutes in Hamilton ballooned a 10 yard pass around 20 ft into the air which, to me, just showed what we were up against. Only around 30,000 fans made the trip to Parkhead last night as it was a midweek, icy freezing night. Sorry for the late match report.

Celtic are looking at a £1m January move for German holding midfielder Marvin Compper in January according to HITC although the Daily Record say RB Leipzig will not let him go. Compper has a single cap for Germany to his name, coming in 2008 & making him the 1st ever Hoffenheim player to be capped by Die Mannschaft. Compper is a 32 year old centre back who has played in Germany for his full footballing career bar 1 year at Fiorentina. Compper has been a first team regular at nearly everywhere he has been bar Borussia Mönchengladbach where he was deemed surplus to requirements. Celtic could wait it out & get Compper for even cheaper or on a free transfer with the German having 18 months left on his contract. Personally I think age is a problem but we are in desperate need for a centre back & now we are being linked with them everywhere I am pretty happy to see the club have listened to the fans. Would you like Celtic to sign Marvin Compper? ~ TFD - #marvincompper #rbleipzig #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
It’s matchday! Hamilton will be paying us a visit at 7:45 this evening as we look to return to form after Sunday. The admins gave their predictions ahead of the Wednesday night action. TFD Predicts a 3-1 victory which I’m sure our fans would be pleased with! Despite conceding at home again... CE has returned with his absurd predictions and has gone with a stunning 8-0 win for Celtic... All I can say is, I’d take that!! I, CPV Predict a quiet but satisfactory 1-0 win tonight, as results like this always turn up in nighttime games in December. What is your prediction for our match today? ~ CPV - #scottsinclair #odsonneedouard #hamilton #hamiltonacademical #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
Celtic are eyeing up a move for 32 year old versatile defender Dusko Tosic according to HITC & Daily Record. Tottenham were interested in Tosic last month but I am unsure whether they will follow up their interest in January. Tosic currently plays for Besiktas in the Turkish Süper Lig, which he was won twice. He can play as a Centre Back & Left Back. Dusko has played in 6 different countries with teams including Portsmouth, QPR, Sochaux, Werder Bremen & Real Betis. He has made 21 caps for the Serbian national team, the first of those coming way back in 2006. I've not saw much of him but he's definitely got the experience there & could be the answer to our centre back problems. Would you like Celtic to sign Dusko Tosic? ~ TFD - #duskotosic #besiktas #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football

Following Zenit's game tonight the Russian season will close for a winter break with Zenit not playing in the period leading up to the Europa League tie against the Hoops. Brendan Rodgers commented on this issue for the Russians: "It doesn't make it the easiest having to play big matches after long periods of inactivity. We experience that a different way ourselves when we play in the [summer] Champions League qualifiers. Some of the teams are in season and we are just coming back and we are playing very important games, in our pre-season. So I suppose they have it the other way. They play tonight and then I think they will be having their break and then they are into these important games. So you can still qualify but of course if you are in rhythm and in season then it does make it a little bit easier." ~ TFD - #zenit #zenitstpetersburg #europaleague #uefaeuropaleague #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
Celtic have drawn Russian side Zenit Saint Petersburg in the Round of 32 of the Europa League. Personally I think it's a good draw, not great. We could've got better & we certainly could've got worse. Zenit Saint Petersburg are currently 4th in the Russian Premier League but have a chance to overtake 3rd place FC Krasnodar & 2nd place Spartak Moscow in their game in hand. They are currently 6 points off of top place. Zenit finished 3rd last season but were only one point off of 2nd place. Zenit face Terek Grozny in their game in hand today but unfortunately we cannot asses our European opponents as it won't be televised in the United Kingdom. Zenit Saint Petersburg were founded on the 30th May 1925. Zenit have won the Soviet Top League/Russian Premier League 5 times in their 92 year history. Zenit won the predecessor of the Europa League, the "UEFA Cup" in the 2007-08 season beating a certain Rangers (OLD CO.) 2-0 in the final! Zenit then went onto win the 2008 UEFA Super Cup beating the UEFA Champions League winners Manchester United 2 goals to 1. Zenit are currently managed by Roberto Mancini, former Manchester City & Inter Milan manager & EPL winner. Zenit are powered by the biggest Russian bank company "Gazprom." Notable players who currently play for Zenit include defender Branislav Ivanović who is a former Chelsea player where he won the UEFA Champions League & UEFA Europa League along with many other major honours, Zenit captain & former Italian international Domenico Criscito & Argentinian international, former Atletico Madrid & Sevilla player, & wonder kid on critically acclaimed video game & football database "Football Manager", Claudio Matías Kranevitter. So their no mugs? What are your thoughts on the Europa League Round of 32 draw? ~ TFD - #zenit #zenitstpetersburg #europaleague #uefaeuropaleague #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
Brendan Rodgers on the Hoops 2-2 draw with Hibernian today: "It was nothing really that Hibs did in the game. It was more that we stopped playing, passing and went a bit longer on it. But we have to ensure we learn from it and ensure it doesn't happen again. Itwas a game of the last 15 minutes, I thought we were outstanding for the first 75 minutes, controlled the game, 2-0 up and should've been four or five at least with the chances we had. We passed it well, our positioning was good, our ball possession was good, we tired them out and created chances. Two-nil is a dangerous scoreline and, at 2-1 with 15 minutes to go, they've got a bit of momentum. We'll certainly reflect on it as two points dropped, but the crime is not that, it's if you don't learn from it." We're in control and then we present them with two goals. We don't defend a corner well enough then we let them in too easily down the right-hand side and the kid swivels and scores in the box when he shouldn't get the chance to turn. We could have lost it at the end with the clearance off the line by Mikael. Disappointment, but it's a point after a difficult Champions League game for us, we know we should've had three. Neil will be happy with how they come back into it. There's a big part of the game today that I was really pleased with. On a tricky surface, we played some great football." ~ TFD - #hibernian #hibs #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
Full Time Ladbrokes Premiership Hibernian 2-2 Celtic Wow, just wow. We nearly Hibsed that one. We came out in the 2nd half & grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck, Sincy scored 2 in quick succession we dominated the game then around the 70th minute Hibernian started applying pressure. Efe Ambrose, who was by far the MOTM, scored & I was thinking, "it's just a consolation." Then Oli Shaw came on. Remember him? Betfred Cup semi's comes on & scores. He only went & done it again from a Boyata mistake. I'm just in awe really, how we threw that away. Mikael cleared one off the line in the last minute & Lustig how much I love you, single handedly keeps the 68 game unbeaten record alive!

Half Time Ladbrokes Premiership Hibernian 0-0 Celtic Of all people, Efe Ambrose has probably been the best player on the park this first half keeping Celtic at bay. Celtic have had many chances but haven't been clinical enough with a close miss from Mikael Lustig & an absolute sitter from James Forrest following a Dylan McGeouch mistake. Former Celt, McGeouch has been very mistake prone this match often letting the Celtic players get through. I think the games really there for the taking, it's Celtic's to lose... ~ TFD - #kierantierney #martinboyle #hibernian #hibs #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football

Starting XI for today's game against Hibernian. Sinclair passes his fitness test with Boyata playing despite the flu! - #dedryckboyata #scottsinclair #hibernian #hibs #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
It's match day as Celtic take on Hibernian at Easter Road in the Ladbrokes Premiership! Last time out against Hibs in the Ladbrokes Premiership was 2 apiece with braces coming from Hibs' John McGinn & Celtic's Callum McGregor. Hibernian are up there as one of the closest to stopping our unbeaten run along with the likes of St Mirren last season. Celtic are unbeaten in their last 7 games at Easter Road. Dedryck Boyata will miss the game due to the flu, Patrick Roberts misses the game through a long term hamstring with Scott Sinclair to face a fitness test. John McGinn return from suspension for the Hibees but David Gray, Liam Fontaine & goalkeeper Ross Laidlaw will all miss the game through injury. Danny Swanson & Steven Whittaker have returned from injury but may not be 100% fit. TFD is going for a tight 3-2 victory for the Hoops. CE is very pessimistic about this fixture saying "this is where the unbeaten run ends" as he's gone for a 1-0 Hibees victory. CPV follows in the footsteps of me, TFD, & goes for a tight 3-2 win! - #hibernian #hibs #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
Hibernian manager Neil Lennon ahead of today's game: "We're not going to dominate possession like we have done in the majority of games but what I do feel is it'll be a good football game. We are not Celtic. We are not going to win every game. We are not going to dominate the landscape but I want it to hurt them when they do lose and I've seen that on a few occasions that we have lost this season. I've also seen them see out games very well. I've also seen them be brave and take games by the scruff of the neck no matter who the opposition is. Second half at Celtic Park [in September's 2-2 draw], we were the better team for long periods and that says a lot. They're ruthless at time. They're just that cut above the rest of us at the minute but it can't go on forever. Some day it's going to have to go and we're all champing at the bit to win. I'm not really thinking about their record. I'm thinking about winning the game. We're a point off second place and we have Rangers and Aberdeen to come. It's important that we take something out of the game in terms of where we want to be. If we win the game, fantastic. We could end up on the end of a hiding if we're not careful as well. I'm very, very mindful of that as well. You need everyone at it. We'll need to have all our players having a good day." ~ TFD - #hibernian #hibs #neillennon #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football
Craig Gordon has said the Celtic players will need to be at their best, even in Europe, to make sure their not replaced: "We have to be performing at the highest level, if not, at a club of this size, then you run the risk of being replaced. We need to do as well as we can in these big games to try and stay in the team. I'm sure the manager will be looking to strengthen the squad again in January. For some of our players this was a good game because some of them think they're Champions League players, so this is a good level for some of those guys to reflect on their performance." ~ TFD - #craiggordon #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football

Brendan Rodgers hit back at critics today: "Where we are in terms of modern football, you look at the teams that we should be measured against like Ajax, who didn’t even qualify or the likes of Benfica who are running away with the league in Portugal but ended up with no points, and other teams. We were the only team from the Champions Route to enter the Europa League. Some people won’t even know what the Champions Route is and that’s how far away we’re deemed to be from Champions League football. So it's unfortunate that lots of people will measure us on Bayern Munich & PSG, which is unrealistic. I think what the players have done in these last 18 months from not qualifying to then finishing bottom of the Europa League to having a successful Champions League qualification campaign and now in the second campaign to qualify for European football after Christmas, I think it’s an achievement for them in terms of where we sit in football at this point in time. For us there’ll always be criticism, we know that, but it doesn’t really bother us. We just have to continue with our work. We have to continue to try to grow and use the criticism as growth. That’s something we’ve done over the course of the last 18 months.” ~ TFD - #uefaeuropaleague #europaleague #el #uel #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football

With the Europa League Group Stage outcomes confirmed Celtic now know all the teams they can face in the Round of 32; Villarreal, AC Milan, Arsenal, Salzburg, Lazio, Dynamo Kyiv, CSKA Moscow, Atletico Madrid, RB Leipzig, Sporting Club De Portugal, Braga, Atlanta, Lokomotiv Moscow, Viktoria Plzen, Zenit Saint Petersburg & Athletic Bilbao. Personally I think, there's no easy game & Celtic certainly don't make it easy for there selves in Europe but looking at the teams we can face i would happily take Viktoria Plzen. Worst case scenario we will be playing a Griezmann inspired Atletico Madrid. Amazingly, we can't face Borussia Dortmund as they are, like us, unseeded as a result of not being one of the 4 best 3rd placed teams! Another run to the final please? ~ TFD - #uefacup #europaleague #uefaeuropaleague #uel #el #johanmjällby #brendanrodgers #celtic #celticfc #spfl #spl #ladbrokespremiership #betfredcup #scottishcup #ucl #cl #championsleague #uefachampionsleague #celticpark #scotland #football

On the 4th June 2015 Joe Chalmers signed for Motherwell on a free transfer with the Scotsman going onto say the move may not have happened if Well had lost their Championship Play-off tie against The Rangers.
