'We'll take it one game at a time' is the frequent call of Brendan Rodgers when asked to reveal targets or long term plans by those in the media.
'We'll take it one game at a time' is the frequent call of Brendan Rodgers when asked to reveal targets or long term plans by those in the media. As the dust settles on the huge miss-match at Hampden Park today, fans will already be looking forward to what will be Celtic's final game of an historic season.
In the first semi-final yesterday in which holders Hibernian got knocked out by Aberdeen, the empty seats were noticeable particularly in the Aberdeen side. There will be those arguing about the kick-off time and distance. These excuses are not valid as this would have been potentially Aberdeen's final meaningful game of the season. Neil Lennon has done a fantastic job with Hibs this season and we all know Aberdeen are chokers on the big occasion so they needed as much vocal support as they could get.
On May 27th will the distance be an issue? Would the couple of hours difference in kick-off time really that much more of a caveat to attend? Celtic will be able to sell their allocation many times over due to being the largest home and away support in the Scottish game. Can Aberdeen claim that they merit half of the tickets after the poor show of their fans in the attendance of yesterday's game?
The consolation for those Celtic fans who will be disappointed when the ticket allocation and distribution is complete will be the chance to party and celebrate at Celtic Park after the game and 24 hours later as there will be the legends game with Henrik's Heroes vs Lubo's Legends. This will be the icing on the cake of what promises to be a weekend to remember for Celtic fans comng off the back of the 50th anniversary of Lisbon.
Before we get carried away however, to paraphrase Brendan Rodgers, let's take it one game at a time. Saturday will be an important game also to make it a green and white-wash at Ibrox this season - then preparations can truly begin for the final.
