I suppose, in a way, it’s a testament to how well Brendan Rodgers is doing when any draw feels like a defeat. Celtic are expected to win every single domestic game and if they don’t then it almost feels earth-shattering.

However, today’s Kilmarnock game was not a one off and in-fact Celtic have drawn three games out of the six SPFL games they’ve had there so far this season.

Considering the team’s away form is 100% so far in the defence of their league title, the question has to be asked – why do we look less impressive at home?

Today, the easy answer could be that Rodgers made too many changes and that a galvanised Kilmarnock were resolute in defence to stop the Champions. That doesn’t stick too well though as Celtic did make significant changes to the team against Killie earlier in the season and came up with a 6-0 win.

It has to be a bit of a concern for Brendan Rodgers that Celtic have dropped all of their points at Celtic Park.

It feels absolutely ridiculous to be talking about this while Celtic equalled a 100-year-old record this afternoon with a 62 game unbeaten run.

It’s not too concerning at this point but the manager will be looking at why Celtic seem more impressive away from home than away.

Celtic move on from the draw quickly with Bayern heading their way on Tuesday. The team can beat Willy Maley’s 100-year-old record next week away to St Johnstone and if we do play our best football away from home then it will be hard to bet against us not breaking it.


  1. Sorry, but it’s really concerning. Teams can see that if they sit in they can get a point.
    Brendan’s team selections have been stupid. Making all these changes as if we’re going into the champions league on Tuesday expecting to beat Bayern.
    This is the kind of complacency that you wake up in April and realise you’re level or behind in the league.
    We were never going to need two holding midfielders today. 3-5-2 with Dembele and Griffiths up front would have made more sense.
    I don’t rhink we won a header in their box after the first minute. Dembele would have offered us something other than slow pedestrian sideways passing.
    We could easily have lost each of the three Home draws and the 1-0 against Dundee.

  2. If being ultra critical We should hv signed a centre half in the summer that’s blatantly obvious and ther for playing players out of position in doing so

  3. I wasn’t there today but on one hand we remain unbeaten and on the other BR feels he can give fringe guys game time…at the expense of home points. In a way it’s hobsons choice.
    Personally I would like to see a near full strength team at paradise at all times. However after the turn of the year we will hopefully shake of the hangers on and get over the 7 in a row line with ease.
    While sevco drown in their own pish and other peoples money….
