Gordon Strachan is concentrating on achieving Celtic's first away win in the Champions League when they play Aalborg tonight – while forgetting the favour needed from Manchester United at Villarreal.
Saturday 15 November 2008
The Celtic manager Gordon Strachan warned against expectations of an easy win when his side take on struggling Hamilton tomorrow. The champions will travel to New Douglas Park top of the table after nine successive wins and on the back of arguably the most one-sided league game of the season when they coasted to a 3-0 home win over Kilmarnock on Wednesday. By contrast, after a bright start to their first season in the SPL, Billy Reid's young side find themselves already facing the prospect of a relegation battle having failed to win any of their last eight games. However, Strachan, pointed to a shock defeat at Falkirk two seasons ago when his side lost 1-0 to a Steven Thompson goal.

Stephen McManus conceded Celtic "have it all to do" to qualify for the Champions League knockout phases for a third consecutive season after blowing their chance to get off to a winning start last night.

If Europe was on the minds of either of these sides, it did not show. Motherwell and Celtic served up six goals yesterday in an encounter that must have had the watching spies from Aalborg and Nancy pondering about the energy levels in the Scottish Premier League.

Pragmatism runs bone-deep in Walter Smith and a man so hardened by a lifetime steeped in football will never look to one result for a sense of vindication. Yet he could have been forgiven for leaving Celtic Park nursing a rueful smile yesterday. He watched a much maligned signing score twice, the boldness of his team selection pay off and a sense of worth return to his side. This was an Old Firm encounter that allowed reputations to be redeemed.

Celtic's returning hero Shaun Maloney won the man-of-the-match award against Falkirk after an 18-month absence then pinpointed team-mate Aiden McGeady as a star Parkhead player.
Sunday 24 August 2008
Any doubts that Shaun Maloney had about how he would be received at Celtic Park have surely been banished. The prodigal son may not have scored on his second Celtic debut, but Maloney lit up the place and heard the sweet sound of his name echoing around the ground.

A late strike by substitute Francisco Sandaza gave Dundee United a deserved share of the spoils against Celtic in yesterday's Premier League meeting at Tannadice.
Monday 11 August 2008
Beware the billing of football matches. This was supposed to be an afternoon when Celtic unfurled the flag of Scottish Premier League champions for the third consecutive opening day – the honours on this occasion being done by Tommy Burns' widow, Rosemary – then strolled past the challenge of St Mirren to collect three points as Gordon Strachan's team set off to make it four in a row.
