THE BIG STORY: Celtic captain Scott Brown has been talking about his two year contract extension that he signed last week, describing Celtic as ‘a great place to be’ as we are playing ‘fantastic football.’ He also claimed to feel as ‘fit as he ever has‘ at any time in his career. I still hope he’s given a rest against Dundee on Wednesday night. Broony also spoke to Celtic TV, which you can see below.
OTHER NEWS: We launched our new ‘Letter From America’ series yesterday, which features Celtic fan in America Andrew Doran giving a U.S. perspective on events at Celtic Park.

Talking of Celtic-Rangers, the in-form James Forrest believes that we can better last season’s 5-1 victory at Ibrox this Saturday. I have my doubts about that, but we should still win the game.
