Monday may have been a quiet day for Celtics first team players but it was far from quiet for the development side. Celtics development side took on Motherwell U21s at Fir Park. The young hoops would suffer a 2-0 defeat.

For the second time in less than five days the eyes of the world were on Parkhead. This time the world was watching as Scotland took on the auld enemy, England at Celtic Park. The game would see four goals scored, but sadly for the Scots it was England that scored the majority of them. England won 3-1, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain opened the scoring before Wayne Rooney doubled England’s lead. Scotland scored with less than ten minutes left, but Ronney would net and end Scotland hopes once and for all just minutes later.


Wednesday was a day of changes at Celtic Park. The first change that was announced was that Celtics game against St Mirren in the SPFL Premiership on the 14th of December would now kick off at 1pm instead of the original kick off time.

The other change announced was that the clash between Celtic and St Johnstone on the 1oth of January 2015 had been postponed. Celtic executed their right to request a postponement for one of their games in January.

All Premiership clubs are allowed to request two postponement each season. One at the start of the season and one in January.


There was only one talking point involving Celtic on Thursday and that was the news that Celtic captain Scott Brown had signed a new four year extension with the club. Scott Brown is now under contract with the Bhoys until 2018.


Friday saw Celtic host their annual general meeting. Many things and issues were discussed at the meeting, including the club’s finances.

The meeting went well with many issues seemingly being sorted including the living wage issue as it was agreed that the club will aim to pay permanent employees a minimum of £7.85 per hour.


Saturday was match day as the hoops hosted Dundee in the SPFL Premiership. Celtic won the game 2-1 with Anthony Stokes and John Guidetti netting for the Bhoys.

    Good morning Dean hey I like this synopsis of the week, exactly what is required brief and concise, I’d like the team to play with more urgency though, is this because the opposition raised their game or are we still misfiring any keep up the reports.HH
