CELTIC take on Hearts on Thursday evening and will have to hope Bobby Madden isn’t on another planet when he officiates the high profile Parkhead tie.
The bhoys are looking to keep the pressure on their rivals heading into the new year and keeping their domestic form going is a must.
Madden was at the centre of the most ridiculous of moments a few weeks back when he sent off an Aberdeen player for being shoved by a Dundee Utd fan. Because the laws haven’t caught up to that sort of stupidity – there was no legitimate grounds to appeal the decision.
Celtic will have to hope Madden is able to keep his head straight and call what he sees.
The bhoys are walking a tight rope right now, we’re going through a rebuild that has so many components to it. On an off day, we have to hope the referee doesn’t cause us damage.
Hearts beat Celtic at the start of the season but Ange Postecoglou and his side knocked the Jambos out of the League Cup. It’s 1-1 for the season, can Celtic get all three points?
