Justice Unlike Rajkovic I felt Gauld was worth the money just because he can have an immediate impact and that he is Scottish one of my goals for the save. With the release clause I should make some good money off him if he wants to leave

mgriffin2012 I should be able to make him great again

ScottT Even though I was going to build around Stu Armstrong it looks like I will build around Gauld

With the season winding down in its final few weeks Celtic continued their run to perfection in seven matches during the month of April. Players like Moussa Dembele and Patrick Roberts kept the month entertaining with their amazing play and Craig Gordon despite some struggles pulled through and kept the streak alive. Also Celtic advance to their first Scottish Cup final since the 2012/13 season. Finally the Bhoys added the Scottish Messi who will be joining next season.

Here is your spoiler free recap of April..

April began with the first of two trips to Tynecastle to face second place Hearts. With Celtic eclipsing a bit over 50 matches in all competitions at this point Celtic would struggle to get 3 pints. An own goal by a hearts player gave us a 1-0 lead and two minutes later Moussa Dembele scored what would be the only goal scored by a Celtic player.

In the first of two matches in a row at home Celtic easily took care of Partick Thistle in their second to last meeting of the year. As in previous matches Celtic dominated their city neighbors with another 3-0 win. a double by Leigh Griffiths gave Celtic a 2-0 lead before the half with goals in the thirty and fortieth minutes. Stuart Armstrong finished the scoring with a goal of his own in the sixty-third.

Another home game followed, and like in previous meetings Celtic would dominate Kilmarnock in a 3-1 victory. Moussa Dembele was the main of the night with two early goals in this meeting. Patrick Roberts would score as well as he added a goal in the twenty-seventh minute, the same number as the one he wears on the pitch. Despite being last place Kille will meet Celtic in the Scottish Cup Final.

It was a trip to Dingwall in the final match of the season before the split. In this Celtic and Ross County would meet one last time this season as the Bhoys scout scored them 4-2 in three previous matches. The Staggies have given Celtic a lot of trouble this season with two draws, both in the Premiership. The Bhoys would win 3-0, with goals from Moussa Dembele, Tom Rogic and Patrick Roberts

Between the end of the first 33 game as the split it was a meeting with Rangers, in the Scottish Cup-Semi Final. As in previous matches with Rangers this season, Celtic made sure their rivals were not effective. With new management our rivals could not keep up. Dedryck Boyata scored a very rare goal as time expired to give Celtic a 3-0 win and will be in the final next month.

It was the first of six matches of the post league split and it wasn't pretty. Celtic would travel to Edinburgh for the second time this month and were lucky to escape with a 2-2 draw. After a goal by Scott Sinclair in the twenty-sixth minute, Hearts would score two before the half. Moussa Dembele would rescue a draw sixty-eight minutes in to score his final goal of the month.

Celtic returned home for the final match of the month against Aberdeen. This was a shocking result as Brendan Rodgers and company seemed to be winded after so many matches this season.Thanks to a late goal from Scott Sinclair, Celtic barely kept their unbeaten streak in Scotland alive.

Can we just rename the Dafabet Player of the Month Award, to the Moussa Dembele Award?? Seriously, Big Moussa had another stellar month with five goals and an assist. He is six goals away from tying Celtic Legend Henrik Larsson's 35 goals scored in the 2000/01 season.


We have finally made it to the last month of the season and Celtic are looking to finish their road to the treble and also an unbeaten domestic season. With four matches this upcoming month Celtic will be away from Parkhead all but once. Starting on the 6th we travel to Ibrox to face Rangers and a few days later on the 13th play at Firhill for the time this season against Partick Thistle. The celebration of the sixth straight league title is set for the 21st as Dundee come to town in the final league match of the season. The league trophy will be presented that day. Finally Celtic have a chance at the treble on the 27th as they face Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup Final live from Hampden.

(Roberts 29, Rogic 30)


FIRST-HALF goals from Patrick Roberts and Tom Rogic saw Celtic dispatch Dundee and make history by going the full league season undefeated on the day the six-in-a-row champions were presented with the Scottish Premiership trophy.

It was the Hoops’ 32nd victory from 38 matches, and they finished the campaign with 102 points and 102 goals – all in a sensational first season under Brendan Rodgers.

‘The Invincibles’ had not had long to wait until the Celtic had an opportunity to score, against a very determined Dundee. With Roberts opening the scoring when he scored off of a free kick.

A minute later, Tom Rogic secured the win and Celtic’s place in the record books with close-range finish to get the party started in earnest in preparation for the trophy presentation.

And there could be further silverware on the horizon for the Bhoys, who are now undefeated in 46 matches since the start of the season, to celebrate as they aim to complete the treble in next weeks’ Scottish Cup final against Kilmarnock.

Brendan Rodgers had made a few changes to the Celtic team that brushed aside Patrick Thistle 2-1 on Thursday night in the penultimate match of the season.

The champions walked out to a stunning stadium-wide tribute to the Lisbon Lions four on the 50th anniversary of their fairytale European Cup triumph. That simply added to the raucous atmosphere inside the ground which was packed to the gunnels by supporters hoping to see their side create another piece of history.

And once the final whistle sounded, it was time for Scott Brown to lift the silverware and for the manager, his backroom team and the players to take the acclaim of 60,000 euphoric supporters on a memorable day in Paradise.
Well, season's almost over, but Moussa is still on fire!
Great win mate
Dembele really is a star in the making, will be massive for you to keep hold of him! Great to see you still dominating having not taken your foot off the boil!
Justice He needs to pick it up a bit but still on fire

redvee35 Thanks, great way to end the league season

mgriffin2012 Yeah I think I will have at least a year or two with him. I just need to keep winning and going far into Champions League

Scottish Cup Final Match Preview | Celtic v Kilmarnock

Friday, 26 May 2017

William Hill Scottish Cup Final
Celtic v Kilmarnock

Saturday, 26 May 2017, kick-off 3pm
Hampden Park

The season kicked-off in the summer of 2016 and tomorrow it will come to an almighty crescendo at Hampden as two polar opposites in the premiership do battle in what is a mouth-watering prospect for the fans.

Celtic have been unstoppable so far this year, going unbeaten in the league and longing for the fourth treble in their history.

Kilmarnock are searching for their first Scottish Cup win since the 1996–97 season having reached the final for the first time since the same year.

Previous meetings:

The two clubs have never meet in the final of the Scottish Cup before.

This season the two clubs have meet for a grand total of three times with Celtic winning two of the three meetings, the other was a 2-2 draw in September. The standout match came on 18 November when Celtic won by a score of 7-0.

What Brendan Rodgers said:

“Of course there's been a lot written and said in the last few months about what the players could achieve, in terms of going the season unbeaten. We've had to retain our focus.

"When you play for Celtic you're always under pressure because the expectancy is to win every game, but we've played a lot of big games where questions were asked in the build-up and the players have always found the answers.

“We'll go into this game ready to perform.

"No matter the result on Saturday, it's been a brilliant season for us in our first season together, knowing that next season we can only improve."

What Gary Locke said:

“To sign off the league campaign with a win last week was brilliant.

“This week has been normal in terms of preparation but we came down last night and trained in Glasgow this morning.

“The players are relaxed, confident and I firmly believe there’s a performance in the players to win the game.

“We’ve got a lot of experience in our squad and I think that’ll help us.

“The win at home was crucial as it was another box we needed to tick.

"It's ridiculous to think that we are not fully committed during tomorrow's game.

'Celtic might be the best team this season but the way they have played in the split has us excited that we have a shot at ending their hopes for a treble."

Brilliant news on ending the season unbeaten, it'll be interesting to see if you can do it again next season when the division will, most likely, get a little bit of boost and Rangers and Aberdeen spend just that little bit more. Good luck ahead of the final against Kilmarnock, however I'm sure you'll easily win it!
That is a great preview man! The Final is going to be a great game even if I feel it is going to be a very one sided match!
ScottT I hope we can repeat and I have a feeling despite finishing in sixth Rangers will be a more competitive side as Paul Lambert is their boss now.

Mgrffin2012 Thank the SFA for the idea haha. It is going to be a glorious day

Scottish Cup final
Hampden Park, Glasgow
Saturday, May 27, 2017

(Dembele 5,62,76)

(Umerah 88)

JUST like the hashtag Moussa uses on his twitter account, the Scottish Cup final was a real Dembelition as he lead the Bhoys to a historic fourth rtreble with a hat-trick.

Celtic got off to an early start as Moussa Dembele scored a close range finish into the bottom left corner of the goal.

As the game wore on, the six-in-a-row champions piled on the pressure and it finally paid off deep into second half as Dembele weaved his way into the box and beat Jamie MacDonald at his near post.

On 68 minutes, Moussa Dembele had a chance at his third goal of the night. Kilmarnock's Karleigh Osbourne dove into Moussa Dembele denying him a chance at a goal but the challenge lead to a penalty. The penalty would be taken by Dembele who would miss due to a spectacular save by Jamie MacDonald.

He (Dembele) would get his chance at the hat-trick in the 76th minute, from a close but powerful shot that came from an even more aggressive pass by Patrick Roberts.

As the clock ticked down, the Rugby Park side were being forced into some desperate last-ditch attack.

Striker Josh Umerah was able to pull one back for Kille after 88 minutes with an incisive finish into the bottom left corner from 11 yards out.

As the whistle blew Celtic celebrated their treble. It was a grand occasion as the players were presented their first Scottish Cup trophy since the 2012/13 season. Captain Scott Brown was the first to hold the trophy!!

For Celtic it is now time for some rest and relaxation as they have a short turn around before the next season begins. Manager Brendan Rodgers has not announced a date but it is looking like they will begin at the end of June. Champions League qualifiers begin around 12 July but more information will be provided as the date comes closer.
A Moussa treble to win the treble, it could not be more fitting!
A fantastic way to wrap up the season, not only treble winners but unbeaten treble winners. Since when did Rodgers become a good manager again?
An unbelievable season! Big things await and I can't wait!
