Celtic 1 - 1 FC Midtjylland - Both Sides Reduced To 10 Men
Ange Postecoglou's Celtic tenure began with a breathless draw with Midtjylland in a Champions League qualifier that saw both sides reduced to 10 men.

Ange Postecoglou's Celtic tenure began with a breathless draw with Midtjylland in a Champions League qualifier that saw both sides reduced to 10 men.

Impressive debutant Liel Abada gave the hosts a deserved lead but was substituted before the break following Nir Bitton's impulsive dismissal.

Bitton reacted angrily to simulation from Anders Dreyer, who repeated the offence to also earn a second yellow.

Evander curled a free-kick into the top corner to leave the tie in the balance.

The return leg takes place next Wednesday in Denmark, with the winners progressing to face PSV Eindhoven or Galatasaray in the third qualifying round.

Sheffield Wednesday 1 - 3 Celtic - Ange Postecoglou Kicks Off With A Win
Ange Postecoglou kicked off his time as Celtic manager with a pre-season friendly win against Sheffield Wednesday today (Wednesday).

Ange Postecoglou kicked off his time as Celtic manager with a pre-season friendly win against Sheffield Wednesday today (Wednesday). Josh Windass fired the Hillsborough side in front after just three minutes, before goals from Albian Ajeti, youngster Owen Moffat and Odsonne Edouard reversed the Hoops’ fortunes.

Given the occasion, the non-competitive match comprised three 30-minute periods which allowed Celtic to field two entirely different XIs over the course of 90 minutes.

Peter Lawwell Is Every Inch The Small Time Operator
He might get paid the wages of a top level EPL chief executive but Peter Lawwell is every inch the small time operator he's always been.

He might get paid the wages of a top level EPL chief executive but Peter Lawwell is every inch the small time operator he's always been.

For seventeen years his decisions have seen us alternate between creeping incrementally forward and reverting to where we were.

Any steps forward we've taken since then have been despite him and frankly because our only rivals imploded.

He mistook our dominance in his time here as being due to his decisions when in fact he's rarely done anything but line his own pockets.

My Pal Jimmy Johnstone
MY pal Jimmy Johnstone by BOBBY LENNOX Playing For Celtic No.5 by Rodger Baillie I DON’T suppose there is any player in Scottish football who is more controversial than Jimmy Johnstone.

MY pal Jimmy Johnstone by BOBBY LENNOX Playing For Celtic No.5 by Rodger Baillie I DON’T suppose there is any player in Scottish football who is more controversial than Jimmy Johnstone. Some people idolise him, some are exasperated by him.I know him not just as Jimmy Johnstone who has been a teammate of mine for over ten years . . . but as the person who has been my best friend at Celtic Park for all that time.

What makes him tick, and what are the flaws that sometimes afflict the play of the little red-headed right winger? I think you have to start by saying that he’s like any great player-and to me wee Jimmy is a great player-and he's a bit temperamental That touch of temperament is something that goes with any great player, as much a part of their equipment as their boot laces.

Yet, more than any other player in Scotland, I believe he gets more pressure put on him from opposing players. And to me he has one skill above all his others . . . and it’s the one which has probably let him keep playing football.

On 5th November 2011 The Zombies sat 15 points clear of Celtic but the bhoys leapfroged their oldest foes at the summit of the table to win the league Title .

Neil Lennon said "I always believed we would close the gap but I didn't realise it would be so quickly, but that is testament to the players' consistency," said Lennon.

"But even though I am a young manager,I've been in football a long time and nothing is won in October and nothing is won in December.

"We have had our rough period and it wasn't nice and it wasn't nice for me but we have found our consistency and it is our job to make sure that it continues.

The Ireland Connection - “We Didn’t Just Happen To Support Celtic; Celtic Is A Part Of Us“
Celtic Football Club has a massive support in Ireland north and south, with many fans regularly making the trek to watch their team in Glasgow, but what is the team's connection to the island?

Celtic Football Club has a massive support in Ireland north and south, with many fans regularly making the trek to watch their team in Glasgow, but what is the team's connection to the island?

Written by Brian McGuirk, a life-long Celtic supporter with a deep passion for Irish history and Celtic Football Club, Celtic FC – The Ireland Connection explores the deep-rooted links between Celtic Football Club, Ireland and the 90 million supporters of Irish descent throughout the world.

These links include: the club’s founder Brother Walfrid from Sligo; the first sod of turf on Celtic Park in 1892 from Donegal; why the Irish flag flies over the stadium; Celtic’s first manager, Willie Maley from Newry; emigration from Ireland to Scotland; and the many Irish players and those of Irish descent and staff who have played, or managed, at Celtic.

An Odsonne Edouard penalty halved the deficit amid a late Celtic siege.

Laxalt's first Celtic goal scrambled a point but his side now have just one win in their last four league games.
