CELTIC 4 ABERDEEN 0 SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP 01/03/2015
The Celtic goal machine rolled over their nearest title challengers today with an emphatic 4-0 win over Aberdeen in Paradise. Three second-half goals from Griffiths, Mackay-Steven and Johansen were added to the one scored in the 37th minute by man-of-the-match Jason Denayer with no response. Near the end of the match the Celtic fans sang "we've won the league again" to the sizeable Dons support but they already knew that at 2-0 as they streamed out of the stadium and back up the A9 with their title hopes in tatters. The Aberdeen fans 'funny' song about serial rapist and child molester Jimmy Saville was just disgusting. Fury erupts in Scottish society whenever the Irish National Anthem is sung at Celtic Park, lets see what happens about this one.
INTERNAZIONALE MILANO 1 CELTIC 0 EUROPA LEAGUE 26/02/2015
Celtic are out of Europa League after losing by a single goal to Inter in the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza tonight. Celtic played with ten men from the 37th minute when Virgil van Dijk was sent off for a second yellow card. The Hoops may have been down to ten for most of the match but they played well and Inter had to wait until the 88th minute to score their goal. For the Inter fans that goal was worth the wait, a superb shot from Fredy Guarín that the big Celtic goalie had no chance with. Celtic will feel hard done by as they were refused two penalty claims by Slovakian ref Ivan Kružliak, Virgil's first yellow was actually the best tackle of game and he dished out a total of 7 yellow cards to Celtic players, including one to Kris Commons after the match had finished. We won't miss him in a hurry.
No official match programme for this game.

CELTIC 3 INTERNAZIONALE MILANO 3 EUROPA LEAGUE 19/02/2015
John Guidetti's last minute goal in tonight's Europa League match gave Celtic a draw in a six-goal roller coaster ride with Inter and a very slim chance in the return match in Italy next Thursday. The Italians stunned the 60,000 plus sell-out crowd at Celtic Park by going 2-0 up in just thirteen minutes through Xherdan Shaqiri and Rodrigo Palacio. No one gave up, fans, players or manager and ten minutes later Celtic were back in the match as new signing Stuart Armstrong scored when Matthews set him up with some brilliant wing play and an inch perfect pass inside the Nerazzurri box.
Both teams kept coming at each other in attack after attack but it was Celtic that scored next, this time Armstrong forced a mistake from defender Hugo Campagnaro and he knocked the ball into his own net. Just before half-time Inter took the lead again through Palacio, the dangerous Swiss international attacker scoring his second of the night. That's how it stayed until the very last minute of the match when John Guidetti, introduced as a late substitute, accepted a lobbed pass from Liam Henderson and volleyed the ball past Carrizo and into the top corner. A 3-3 draw and a chance in the San Siro for Glasgow's Green and White.

Celtic were in devastating form in the first-half though failed to add to their 1-0 lead but Stephan Johansen added a second for the hoops seven minutes after the break. That's eight victories in a row and takes Celtic 6 points ahead of second place Aberdeen.
