Celtic had to come from behind today in their victory over Kilmarnock. A well organised Killie team took the lead with their first chance of the game but an Edouard double either side of half time and a Christie goal made sure of the points.
There was still time for what looked like an odd penalty decision for Killie that Fraser Forster saved.
After the game we got the comments from the Celtic and Kilmarnock managers (with Massimo Donatti doing some translating).

This podcast is recorded within hours of the excellent away result in France where Celtic were unlucky not to end up deserved winners but instead took a very creditable 1-1 away result against Rennes.
Games at the elite level are won and lost on fine margins and when they got their penalty not log after we’d nearly taken the lead, whilst I was concerned that we’d gone behind I was hopeful that we would get, and convert, at least one more chance. We should have had a penalty for a foul on Christie but instead got it for a foul on Forrest, a penalty Christie took well.
Following this scoring draw I thought we should have a quick podcast recording so I dialled up Antony Murray and Sean Huddleston to get their take on the game.

On the first Sunday in September Celtic once again visited Ibrox and as per the bulk of the last few years since the new club arrived in the league, we won.
There had been quite a bit of hype around this game with Rangers having won the pre-season cup of hype and many in the media and among their fans were confidently saying (the same thing as the last 3 years) that this time they really were back and 55 is coming blah blah blah. Celtic did their talking on the pitch and blew away the hype with a comfortable 2-0 win.
With the need for a podcast I dusted down the mic that hadn’t been used since at least Saturday and got two regulars on - @Hullbhoy and @Antonymurray25 to review the game.
In addition to the game we also discuss whether the summer window was good, bad or middling and we have a brief review of the Europa League Group.
