On Thursday night Celtic played Copenhagen and during the game we decided to give them a little thank you for being such good hosts the previous week. So we took 3 goals, tied them up in a parcel, put on a lovely bow a gift wrapped the best present we could…
Yes we are so generous that we gifted them safe passage to the last 16 of the Europa League by making an absolute pigs ear of the home leg following the 1-1 draw in Denmark.
In this podcast we pick over the bones of Thursday night’s game and discuss team selection and the system we played. I provide my descriptions of the goals after being at the game and refusing to watch any highlights and Antony (who braved that job) gives me his review of my description.
Enjoy…(if you can)

Podcast Xtra - Celtic 5 Hearts 0
Tonight Celtic thumped Hearts by 5 goals at Celtic Park with the atmosphere greatly enhanced with some late goals just down the M77 at Kilmarnock meaning that the lead at the top of the table is now 10 points.
After the game Neil Lennon, Jozo, the Hearts manager and a Hearts player spoke with the press. The Hearts manager rambled and I’m not sure he’ll be their answer. It was a great night.

It wasn’t until nearly the 80th minute today against Hamilton that Celtic fans could start to relax today and had we not achieved that win and capitalised upon RFC dropping points at home to Aberdeen then the recriminations over the (lack of) activity in the January window would have been unbearable on scoial media however the manager made key substitutions in the second half and we went on to score 4 goals and continue our 3+ goals a game since the return to league activity following the winter break, but the main chat in this podcast is about the January window.
We are top of the league. We have won 10 out of the last 10 trophies available and we have the best squad in the country. Despite all of this fans were anxious in the last few weeks following the Dec 29th defeat and there were strong calls for some experienced players joining the team and that didn’t happen and so Antony Murray joined Harry for a chat about the window.

Celtic have returned to SPFL action in positive fashion, scoring 9 goals by knocking three past each of Kilmarnock, Ross County and St Johnstone. We have scored more goals and gained more points than all but 4 of the seasons this century after the equivalent number of games and with our progress in Europe and already a domestic trophy in the cabinet we remain on course for another remarkable season.
With all of this the angst and frustration among many in our support is difficult to understand and so I called up @antonymurray25 to review the last 2 domestic games and preview this Sunday’s game against Hamilton.
We don’t discuss the transfer window because that’s for another podcast which will be out very soon.
