Celtic head into this weekends clash with St.Mirren in good spirits after a solid first half performance against Utrecht.
It's the battle of the Lennon's as Celtic's Neil takes on Danny of St.Mirren at Celtic Park with the home side looking to avenge last season's 4-0 drubbing which cost Tony Mowbray his job.
Both sides go into the match in good shape,the Buddies drew with Scottish Cup wiiners Dundee United last Saturday and will come to Celtic Park full of confidence.
The home side will still be in good spirits after Thursday nights 2-0 Europa League result over Utrecht,goals from Efrain Juarez and Georgios Samaras have given the Hoops a first leg advantage over the Dutch but they know that this tie is far from over.
The first half performance on Thursday will have pleased manager Neil Lennon and he will be more than pleased with the performance's of new signing's in particular Beram Kayal,who was outstanding against the Dutch.
Celtic will be looking for the same sort of high tempo performance against Danny Lennon's side.
Both sides have injury worries going into the game with Cha Du Ri struggling with a hamstring injury,new signing Emillio Izaguirre back in Honduras completing his paperwork and the shocking news that Andreas Hinkel has also been told that he will be out for the rest of the season due to a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament,which is really bad for the player and I am sure that all the Celtic fans will wish Andreas a speedy recovery.
Celtic fans will also see less of Morten Rasmussen and Ben Hutchinson this season as both players have gone on loan for the season to Mainz and Lincoln.
I would like to end this short article by drawing your attention to a match in tribute to former Radio Clyde DJ,Tiger Tim Stevens.
It takes place at Pollok Juniors Newlandsfield at 2pm and it is between a Celtic Select v a Rangers Select and as well as raising money for Tiger's MS charity,it should be great fun seeing Old Firm stars of yesterday,go along and support a great cause!
