Happy New Year!
The Celtic Underground podcast will now be entering our THIRD decade of podcasting, we may be getting old and we may be Celtic Da’s but who cares?!?
We have set the pace for football fans podcasts in Scotland and will continue to do so into the 2020s and although our final recorded podcast of 2019 covers one of those exceptionally rare things of the last 10 years (a defeat) it is only one loss in a decade of complete domestic dominance and in a period of winning domestic trophy after domestic trophy. The noisy neighbours from the South Side may have one a game for the first time ever at Celtic Park but since they arrived in the top flight we have won EVERY single trophy and here’s to 3 more in 2020.
With our place as the oldest football fans podcast I thought I’d get an old guest who’d not been on for a while - so long he set up a rival podcast…yes it’s Lawrence Donegan.
Lawrence and I review the derby defeat and some of the post game social media nonsense.
Happy New Year and Enjoy…

To quote Noddy Holder It’s Chriiiisssstmaaaas!
As we record this podcast it’s Christmas Day (and for those in earlier time zones you’re probably picking this up on Christmas day or later) and so what do we have to do bar make sure the final presents are wrapped, the food is ready to be made and fun is ready to be had. In preparation for having more important things to do I decided to have one last podcast before the festivities so I called up Hullbhoy and had a little chat.
On the podcast we talk about the Hibs, Hearts and Aberdeen games and how we scored two a game but could easily have had 3, 4 or more.
After discussing those games of of the past we preview the games of the present against St Mirren and Rangers and then briefly discuss the future (the season beyond January).
We also update you on the incredible work of the Foundation funded by the Celtic support.
We hope you enjoy this podcast and also hope you enjoy your festive period and have a great Christmas and New Year.
Merry Christmas and Enjoy…

What a game and what a week. We have had the over dramatic descriptions of how well they played and how on another day blah, Blah BLAH…the scores on the doors is Celtic 1 - 0 Rangers. Celtic have won 10 trophies in a row. The Celtic X Men!
We now know - they had umpteen booked and could have been worse. The “offside” Celtic goal was either marginally on or marginally off - ie too close to call and Morelos cannot score against us. What we also know for certain is that Celtic are the dominant force of Scottish football and hype alone will not remove us.
After the game I contacted @LachieMor1 and chatted about the game. Oh my days.

The world’s longest running football fans podcast is back with a same day match review following our 4-1 victory away at Ross County.
Following the midweek triumph over Rennes, these are the types of games that have seen us trip up over the years - after a thrilling and successful midweek European tie in front of a full house at Celtic Park it must be quite a come down to go to Dingwall and play ‘County’. Despite this the current squad showed all their professionalism and romped to a comfortable 4-1 with with a Christie double supported by goals from Rogic and Johnston.
Within an hour of the final whistle I was on Skype with @antonymurray25 to review.
