Celtic secured the League and Cup double with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Rangers at Hampden Park, which went into Extra Time. Greig Spence opened the scoring for Celtic after 70 minutes, before an equaliser three minutes from time by Rhys McCabe gave Rangers hope as the game went into extra time. And when it looked like the match would be destined for penalties, substitute Liam Gormley struck from 25 yards out with 10 minutes remaining to ensure that Stevie Frail’s side secured back to back Youth Cup Final wins.

After the demolition of Hibernian in the first half last week, Celtic struggled in the second half and in the latter games against St.Mirren and St.Johnstone to score goals. The media looked upon the games as Celtic stuttering along, fearful of dropping valuable points at the top of the table. We even had the usual headline eminating from Ibrox this time from Steven Naismith with the title 'Catch Us If you Can' - and that was after they went top on just one point, after Celtic's game against Inverness was postponed. Celtic did catch them up and we did go back to the top, sitting two points clear. As I have stated before, the title is now Celtic's to lose. And Rangers must win all their games hoping that Celtic drop points. Making the derby game on the 24th April very important.

While many Celtic fans were furious at this weekend's postponement, and with the threat that our rivals Rangers could leapfrog us in the league if they beat Dundee United, it looked as though it was going to be a pretty bad day. And with Rangers fans sure of all three points, they openly mocked the Celtic support as they expected to be a point clear at 5pm. But Dundee United had other ideas.

Today's Celtic away game to Inverness Caledonian Thistle has been called off due to the pitch being waterlogged. A pitch inspection was arranged for 10am, with referee Craig Thomson taking the decision which has enraged EVERY Celtic fan, even more so now that there was no rain from 10am onwards and the sky is now blue.
