8. ‘On this day in 1991, Celtic had a comfortable 3-0 victory,’ Jim Craig…

On this day, in 1991, Celtic had a comfortable 3-0 victory over St Mirren at Celtic Park in a 2nd Round Scottish Cup tie before a crowd of 27,189. The season had not gone well…

7. An impressive League Cup win for Celtic Women, with Heather Richards the Celtic star

Celtic Women yesterday did what the men couldn’t last weekend by defeating St Johnstone at home. In fact it was an emphatic 4-0 win at K-Park Training Academy in the Scottish Women’s Premier League Cup.

The Celtic opener was scored by Ruesha Littlejohn on 35 minutes to give Celtic a lead at the interval and a Nicole Pullar double on 49 and 71 minutes was rounded off by the fourth from in-form Heather Richards with a minute of normal time left on the clock.

After the frustrations of drawing with Stirling University last weekend in the league, this was a good afternoon for Celtic Women, who looked more like the side who hammered Rangers 3-0 a fortnight ago…

The Celtic Star doesn’t write about other clubs, just Celtic but the site, uniquely among the Celtic sites, covers the Celtic Women’s team and is proud to do so. Read the rest of this feature HERE.


6. ‘Ineffective Aberdeen lacked innovative tactical approach,’ Lisbon Lion blames McInnes

With the very poor record that Aberdeen had against Celtic last season, one would have thought that Derek McInnes might have come up with some new system or innovative tactics for this one.

Right from the first whistle, though, Celtic looked comfortable and you cannot allow the team at the head of the table to feel like that…

Yes The Celtic Star’s former dentist lays it on the line for the Aberdeen boss who has lost ten in a row against the Hoops.

5. ‘Aberdeen like to be aggressive and to get in our face,’ goalscoring hero Kieran Tierney

KT hit out at Aberdeen’s thug Sam Cosgrove for his outrageous assault on Scott Brown, stating that the Celtic captain could have been seriously injured. While KT was prepared to consider giving the red carded Dons substitute the benefit of the doubt afterwards regarding intent, at the time he was one angry Bhoy.

Cosgrove arrived in the North East from Carlisle in the transfer window having previously been at Wigan. It took him just 7 minutes to make a name for himself after coming on as a substitute as Aberdeen sought an equaliser and to capitalize on their one man advantage after Mikael’s Lustig’s poor control cost him a deserved second yellow.

But rather than trying to hit the net the big thug opted for a career threatening assault on the Celtic captain. Shay Logan followed this up by hammering the ball against Brown who responded magnificently, it has to be said, jumping straight to his feet and roaring towards the support.

4. Having won 55 caps, Broony tells McLeish he is retiring from Scotland duties…

CELTIC captain Scott Brown has called time in his international career to focus on winning trophies at Celtic.

Having won 55 caps for his country, many as captain, Brown has let the new Scotland manager Alex McLeigh know that he has decided to retire from international football. That decision can only be regarded a good news for Celtic as it has been made with extending his playing time at Celtic for as long as possible. Brown is a Celtic legend and is absolutely crucial to the side week in week out. You just had to look at the performance last weekend against St Johnstone at Celtic Park to see how much he is missed when he’s not in the team – he was suspended for that game which ended 0-0.

3. ‘Broony’s been a huge influence, when I came through at Celtic he took me under his wing,’ James Forrest

James Forrest provided the much need little bit of class to open up the Aberdeen defence yesterday and lay the opener on a plate for a very grateful Moussa Demebele who powered his header into the net from point blank range.

This is a season when the inconsistent tag that has dogged Forrest throughout his career has been shed and he is now Celtic’s Mr Reliable when it comes to getting a goal or setting one or two up for his team-mates.

2. Roberts and Compper added to squad for Dundee game as Rodgers salutes his skipper…

Brendan Rodgers has spoken about his admiration for his captain Scott Brown on the day that “Brownie” as the gaffer calls him, announced on the official Celtic website that he was calling time on his international career.

Rodgers regards that as good news for him and for Celtic but can see the downside for Alex McLeish as Scotland lose their most influential midfielder of his generation. Few though can be surprised by Broony’s decision at this time. He went back to help Gordon Strachan who he has a close personal relationship with and with Scotland failing to reach Russia this summer and a new man going in to replace Strachan, it was always likely that Brown would call it a day for the second, and this time final time.

1. After the Rebels had won, Low and McCann discovered that Celtic actually owned shares in RANGERS

The Celtic Star told you on Friday, Brendan confirmed yesterday and it is being reported today. To re-cap on what Brendan had to repeat yesterday about the reports that Tom Rogic, who started yesterday at Aberdeen, has rejected a new contract….
