Inevitably, Celtic cantered their way to a third successive SPFL tile win, with the ribbons on the trophy before March was out. A midweek win at Firhill formally secured what has been expected all season, although despite the expected nature of the success, Neil Lennon remains adamant that there are still ambitions to fulfil at Parkhead.
There are many great soccer rivalries: El Clasico, the shared home of Milan, the highly anticipated Manchester derby, and Argentina's biggest rivalry between Boca Juniors and River Plate. But there is one feud in world soccer that just seems to surpass all others: The Old Firm derby between Rangers and Celtic.
The resurgence of fortunes within the Scottish national team continued with a friendly win over Poland in an interesting prelude to the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. The teams will come up against one another in October in a competitive qualifier, but manager Gordon Strachan dismissed the suggestion that the 1-0 victory, courtesy of a Scott Brown goal, was a psychological advantage.
Neil Lennon added Leigh Griffiths to his squad on the final day of the January transfer window and the Hoops boss has no fears over whether or not the forward has the required maturity to cope with life in the Glasgow goldfish bowl.
Nestled somewhere between popular culture and a penchant for hard angles, Valencia-based illustratorJorge Lawerta has a style that's difficult to pin down. That said, no matter how he chooses to approach his subject, whether it's a historic rivalry, a cultural representation of a city, or just a portrait of a player, Lawerta is always on point.
Neil Lennon has dismissed any suggestion that Celtic will be preparing to make a marquee signing in the looming January transfer window - and the Hoops boss isn't of a mind to bring in a box office name on the back of a short-term loan deal.
In the late 1970s a company called Marshall Cavendish released a series of football magazines which the avid reader would slip into binders to create their very own football encyclopaedia. One of the articles contained within is a lament about the struggles of the British game and part of the argument for improvements made by the author suggests the introduction of a British Super-League.
Neil Lennon could not hide his anguish as Celtic went out of the group stages of the UEFA Champions League limply and without any of the fight and determination which has characterised recent campaigns in the illustrious competition.

Barcelona will be without Lionel Messi again through injury but should still have too much fire power for Celtic who's lack of possession and shots on goal in the competition thus far can only get worse with their visit to the Nou Camp to-night.
Barcelona have won only three of their last nine European games between this and last season, losing and drawing also three.
When Group H schedule was first announced, I was dead sure that this match would be nothing more than a practice game for Barca and crunch game for Celtic. How wrong I was? Tonight when we host Celtic at the Camp Nou, Celtic got nothing to lose, they are already out of the Group and their away supporters are banned from attending this match.
Celtic should be sitting on 2 points in Champions League Group H this morning... ... instead they sit bottom with no points, no goals and no hope.
A different array of strategic errors undermined the real chance of a draw against a Messi-less Barca but, overall, the lack of a valid holistic at the top is the issue - some members of the board put brinksmanship ahead of the good of the club and, in the same manner that Peter Lawwell had to apologise to fans for his strategic errors handing the 2008/09 Scottish Premier League title to #Rangers, a further apology is in order because this Champions League campaign has been self-harming throughout.

"A VERY SCOTTISH SOJOURN" "Who's what in the where now?" The not direct-quote of TFC's former director of player personnel Earl Cochrane after the whole football world knew that under-contract TFC star Dwayne De Rosario was training with Glasgow giants Celtic. TFC claimed they knew nothing of it; De Ro's reps said the opposite; De Ro did keepie-uppies next to Freddie Ljungberg in a Celtic kit.
