The Bhoys have their work cut out for them over the next two weeks. The champions will play five games in fourteen days starting tomorrow at home to Hibs.
After that, it is Hearts, Aberdeen, St. Mirren and Rangers who will provide the opposition before the squad head to Dubai for the winter break.
We mentioned earlier today about the collapse of Hibs, Hearts and Aberdeen this season which has played its part in making the Rangers challenge look a bit more credible. Both Hibs and Hearts have sacked managers already this season.
Jack Ross is the latest edition to the manager’s chair at Easter Road and Ryan Christie has been singing his praises to Celtic TV.
“We expect a good game, and Hibs will come here with intent. I’m a big fan of Jack Ross. He did an incredible job when he was at St Mirren, and I thought he was unlucky with things not really working out at Sunderland.”
Hibs have been somewhat of a bogey team for Celtic over the past few seasons, luckily that only applies as Easter Road for some reason. Neil Lennon left Christie, McGregor, Rogic & Forster in Scotland on Wednesday as he brought an alternative starting eleven with him to Romania to face Cluj in the last Europa League group game.
It is expected Lennon will return his full-strength team tomorrow at Paradise to try and win all three points before heading up to Tynecastle to pull off a double on the Edinburgh teams.
