Celtic host Hibs this evening with another lightshow promised by the club pre kick off, which will ultimately be the highlight on social media as usual unless Timothy Weah personally gets off with a fan after his inevitable goal tonight.

The visitors have won only one of their last seven league games, and they face a nearly impossible task to halt the Celtic Juggernaut going for another home win to make it thirteen out of thirteen at Celtic Park.

There will be a minutes applause in the eighteenth minute to show support and solidarity to Neil Lennon, recently stabbed in the back by his employers in Leith, so let’s all get behind THE GAFFER.

Yes, this is a work.

Hibs last win at Celtic Park was nine years ago, when they all but ended Tony Mowbray’s title challenge with a 2-1 win.

They have also posed a problem in games for Brendan Rodgers side since they returned to the Premiership, with the clashes always being fairly closely fought, but I predict a doing for the Hibees this evening.

Despite the mounting injury problems ‘plaguing’ Celtic, we still have an extremely strong team to choose from for tonight, and when you have a highly rated PSG forward and a guy who went to Germany for £15m not so long ago likely to be in the starting line up, we can’t complain about being hampered by players missing.

Shoot Prediction: Celtic 3-0 Hibernian.
