Monday Round-Up

Shaun Maloney celebrates his goal against Stuttgart

It's a new week, which will end with Celtic once more playing on a Saturday at 3pm against Hamilton - two weeks in a row, I'm shocked as well - but in the meantime here's the latest round-up:

  • Yesterday’s battle of Celtic loan players ended with Ryan Christie's Aberdeen defeating Kristoffer Ajer’s Kilmarnock 2-1. Meanwhile, ex Celts Paul Hartley, Darren O'Dea and Paul McGowan teamed up to beat Rangers 2-1. "Ha Ha!".
  • Sadly it now seems highly unlikely that we will clinch the title against Rangers next month.
  • Real Madrid have now joined the legion of clubs interested in signing Moussa Dembele.
  • Kieran Tierney was rightfully furious with Ryan Bowman after his dreadful 'challenge' on Saturday.
  • Happy 37th birthday to our old mate Artur Boruc. Here is the time he scored in a penalty shoot-out.
  • ON THIS DAY: In 2003, Celtic took another step on the road to Seville, defeating Stuttgart 3-1 in the first leg of the last sixteen game in the UEFA Cup. Without the injured Henrik Larsson, who had fractured his jaw, and Martin O'Neill suspended from the dugout and in the stand, Celtic seemed in the ascendancy when Bordon was sent-off for a last man foul on Stan Petrov. But ten minutes later Kuranyi gave the visitors the lead. Thankfully goals from Lambert and Maloney gave Celtic the lead the before half-time and Petrov made it 3-1 in the second-half to complete yet another glorious Celtic Park European night.
