Celtic return from the international break and kick-off against Ross County on October 19.
The bhoys have a very busy schedule between now and the end of the year – right now from the 19th onwards Celtic are pencilled in to play 18 games between now and the end of the year – it will be 19 if we make the League Cup final.
Nothing is won or lost in October but you can make great strides in this period of time.
It’s imperative Neil Lennon uses the big squad he has to ensure the bhoys are in a good position come the January shutdown.
In those 18 games there’s games against Lazio, The Rangers at home and Aberdeen away. In-fact, Celtic will play away at Pittodrie three days after their home game against Lazio.
Here is a full rundown between now and the end of the year remember there is one more international break to come next month also.

Look at that December schedule! Nine games in the one month – only four of the nine at home. This is when Neil Lennon and the bhoys really need to come into their own and make sure there are no more slip-ups like Hibs and Livingston.
It’s exciting but testing times for the bhoys.
