Falkirk could prove to be a tricky challenge, but you just have to fancy Celtic in domestic fixtures, no matter their opponent :P
redvee35 It will be tough as Falkirk are a decent side and the way we are playing right now I wouldn't be surprised.

Justice I have no doubt they will be hard as they are always a tricky side.

CELTIC continued their good start to the 2016/17 season in September, as they would continue dominating the Premiership and the Scottish League Cup. On the Champions League front it was a mixed bag but at the same time a good start in the first month of the group stage.

It was a very exciting month score wise. We got to see a thrashing of a rival and several close games. Those games later in the month might have made many of us age but boy were they exciting.

"Scott Sinclair is someone who is willing to do what is takes to win, no matter if its when he starts or even off the bench, he always comes through when needed. His work ethic is the reason why we are where we are right now," Assistant Manager Chris Davies.

Moussa Dembele was the only person to get an award this month and he collects his second SPFL Premiership Young Player of the Month award.

Here is your spoiler free recap of September.

A 5-1 victory over our biggest rivals was a great way to kick off the month. The crowd was buzzing after a goal by Patrick Roberts two minutes in. He would score one more in the twenty-seventh minute. Moussa Dembele would follow that with three of his own though out the match.

A few days later Celtic would play their first match of the Champions League Group Stage against last years EPL Champions Leicester City, at the King Power Stadium. As expected the Foxes won the game but the bhoys would keep fighting all match long. Moussa Dembele scored the only goal that got us in third place at the end of the day in the fiftieth minute.

On September 18th the club would take a trip up to the Highlands to face Inverness. This would be a match that Brendan Rodgers rested a ton of key players. Was that a good idea or not?? It was a scoreless game until two minutes before the match ended when Scott Sinclair scored the game winning goal after being substituted less than ten minutes before. Leigh Griffith ended up getting hurt with a sprained ankle and will be out of action until mid-October.

The second scare in a row for the hoops occurred in the Betfred Cup Quarter-Final against Hearts. Despite a 3-2 scoreline our opposition had so many chances to beat us and thanks to goals by Moussa Dembele, Stuart Armstrong and Patrick Roberts we were able to move on to the next round. Our defense was lucky enough to stop a late push by Hearts.

The final league match of the month was a very frustrating one according to several players. This was another match where Rodgers rested key players, this time to get ready for Olympiacos. Goalkeeper Dorus de Vries made his Celtic debut and wasn't one to remember as he struggled all night long. It was up to Scott Sinclair once again to save the day. This time in the eighty-fourth minute, he would rescue a draw.

The final match of September was a meeting with Greek super club Olympiacos at Celtic Park. The downward trend continued for the bhoys as this game was a real struggle and lady luck was on our side. After trailing Patrick Roberts equalized and gave us some hope. Disaster struck as Olympiacos scored with two minutes to go leveling it to 2-2. Some how by the grace of god in the ninetieth an Olympiacos player fouled in the penalty area and gave us a chance at a game winner. Sadly the penalty buy Scott Sinclair was blocked and Celtic finished with a poor 2-2 draw.

For the Dafabet Player of the Month award winner of September we have a new face. Yes, Moussa had another great month especially with a hat-trick against Rangers but there was one player who had some of the most memorable and important plays this month. The winner is Scott Sinclair.

Four of six starts for the Englishman saw him contribute in many ways including ball movement, defending and had two assist. He might have not had many goals but two were critical to the successful month. They were both off the bench as a game winner and a game tying goal. Without those our league standing would not be as good.


The month of October begins with two Premiership matches. The first a quick trip to Dens Park to face a fourth placed Dundee FC on the second. Followed by a return home to face Motherwell on October 15th. Four days later on the 19th Celtic face Porto at home for the third match of the group stage. A few days later in a trip to Hampden Park will see us face Falkirk in the League Cup Semi-Final. Finally October ends with two away matches in the Premiership, October 26th in Dingwell to face Ross County and Pittodrie in Aberdeen to face the Dons on October 29th.
Great update. Scott Sinclair is a very good player. Good to see him scoring. Looking forward to seeing who will be top goalscorer at the end of the season

Celtic has announced a partnership with Ulsan Hyundai of the Hyundai Oilbank K-League Classic, an agreement that will result in shared expertise, benefit and promotion for each club.

Through the partnership, Celtic will help to promote the Ulsan brand in over Scotland. Celtic has had links with Korea a few years back with the signing of Ki Sung-yueng back in the Summer of 2009. In turn Ulsan Hyundai, will work closely with Celtic to help increase its presence across South Korea. The two clubs will also work together on joint initiatives in both the United Kingdom and the Asia.

“We are very excited for the opportunity to partner with Ulan and its amazing fan base,” said Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell. “Through this partnership we look to share best practices on both the technical and commercial side, while also increase our brand recognition in South Korea and throughout Asia.”

“Interest in European Football is massive in South Korea, and our partnership with Celtic will provide both clubs with an excellent opportunity to grow and evolve in each other’s market,” said Ulsan’s owner Chung Mong-joon. “This is a major step forward for Ulsan Hyundai and a really exciting development for us in the South Korean marketplace. We are continually looking at new ways to develop our international profile and our partnership with Celtic will help us to build closer links with Europe.”

Ulsan Hyundai are one of most successful professional football organizations in the history of South Korea. Ulsanis a two-time Hyundai Oilbank K-League Classic Champion (1996 and 2005) and the winner of the 1986, 1995, 1998, 2007 and 2011 K-League Cup, the 1998 Hana Bank KFA Cup, the 2006 A3 Champions Cup and the 2012 AFC Champions League.

This will be a boost with player training and a chance for Celtic to tour Asia on a more constant basis.
"Hyundai: that is a car of the future"

Another excellent update, I'm glad someone's finally got something out of Scott Sinclair!
Well, Hearts might just prove to be potential title challengers :P
Sudbury Thanks, yeah he has been better than expected

Justice Yeah they are the only good side other than us
Hyundai oo, South Korea is a good marketing country and hopefully you can get a huge financial benefit from it.
