A very happy man, 3 points needed and 3 points we got

Kris Commons left foot will be red raw tonight as I have never seen a one man show where a player has had so many shots at goal. We can sometimes give the opposition a ‘Well done’ and tonight Kilmarnock defended like their lives depended on it, throwing bodies at everything Commons hit tons of shots with Killie players throwing themselves at everything with the goalie doing well also, can we give the goalposts a shout?

Super tonight. As he said after the game "I need a contact I have rent to pay" LOL...Man of the match

Celtic should have been several up at half time, wasteful again in front of goals tonight, Commons was unlucky but we had chances from almost everyone tonight, on 36 minutes an incredible goal by Izzy for 1-0 on the half volley, the bench turned around and seemed to say well done to John Kennedy, must have been a move in his notebook, but what a goal it was, just as we needed it as again we were not converting possession and chances into goals

Izzy 1-0

Izzy 1-0

The first half was as well as you will see Celtic play this season we bossed the game, Ambrose did ok at times bit he fell and nearly let the Killie player in to make it 1-1. I did this article here on Ronny’s Team, Defence, Midfield and Attack, this was about defence, I seen it again tonight, all of what I have noticed http://thecelticnetwork.com/2015/01/04/ronny-deilas-celtic-case-for-the-defence-part-1/ we really need to work on this as better teams than Killie will score against us on the counter

The second half was much the same with Celtic oozing class, our one touch passing led to many changes from the by-line, but as usual we get to the by-line and the cut back is poor, we really must have a player running in-front of the keeper, a player on the penalty spot ready to pounce forward and more important a man on the edge of the box or “Edge” as we say in football talk.

Chances came and went and at 1-0 you are thinking “On not again” or “Here we go again” we made it really hard for ourselves as at 1-0 a mistake by Scott Brown allowed a Killie player a toe basher that nearly looped over Gordon thankfully Craig was up to the task to palm it away. See this is what I was talking about in “The case for Defence” article, stupid mistakes in defence

Celtic got 2-0 and a heavy sigh of relief from Ronny and everyone else. A cracking corner from Johansen a header towards goal by Ambrose doing well to get the head on goal, Scepovic was there to do what he is paid to do, get these bouncing balls in the net. I was delighted for the lad as he really does look like he wants it, he is getting more game time and let’s hope he can start scoring, I think it will come for Scepovic he has this streak in him all strikers need he has fire in his belly, he seldom complains when he is free in space in the box and someone shoots instead, he is a patient lad, I like that in him

Scepovic 2-0

Scepovic 2-0

So 2-0, cracking goal by Izzy but more important 3 points and we still have a game in hand. Now we go over to Gran Canaria to play PSV Eindhoven and Sparta Prague and hopefully get Denayer and Lustig as match fit as two games would allow. Mulgrew and Forrest also. When you look at players missing it really is a lot. We could and should be well ahead in this league table but lack of goals is costing us dearly and tonight could have also. We need Commons on the park, simple as that, he shoots he sets up and much of went on tonight he was on the end of or involved in. We seen Ronny and the fans at the end and I love this, he is connecting with the fans the guy is a fighter, he will come good and Andy Walker can hate this all day, I love to see passionate managers, Ronny is learning to be a manager at a World Class club with expectations through the roof, we are in all competitions 1 point off the top of the league with a game in hand, LETS BE POSITIVE!

With 3 points a must today, we go to 4th in the league 3 points from the top with a game in hand. After all the negative talk and play on the park we could in 2 weeks be top of the league and into the last 32 of the Europa League. Strange as it is the final for this season’s Europa Cup is National Stadium, Warsaw, we couldn’t could we? 

Today’s game was over as a contest on 33 minutes when Manuel Pascali pulled back Scepovic who was through on goal. Then Kilmarnock took off Alexei Eremenko, strange one I thought at the time. Then up stepped Super John Guidetti to hammer a super free kick 25 yards out low into the bottom left of goal. 1-0 and from there on in it was Celtic, it was a training match, and I was glad the players went down a gear. We have big games coming up so we take the breaks when they come. 

Straight red for Pascali on 33 minutes

We had several chances in the 1st half through Scepovic who’s movement was really good today, we just were not finding him, McGregor had a good 1st half getting good crosses in and coming inside for the odd shot. Wakaso was nowhere, I don’t know the story with Wakaso, we won’t see him for a month now probably. The first half ended 1-0 and I was just happy 3 points looked on the cards. Winning ugly is something we are doing just now, playing badly and winning, this is a superb sign. We have shown against Dundee United and Ross Country and a few others what we can do on form so we hope it clicks soon

The second half was all Celtic, we had a ton of chances, Johansen, Guidetti two players in the thick of it. I thought Scott Brown had a good game, he just sat in-front of the back 4 and knocked the ball about. It was 2-0 Celtic and 2 goals in 2 games for Scepovic. Izzy played the ball to Wakaso, a good ball to the back post and Scepovic did what good strikers should do by shooting back across goal, great finish for a player we all want to do well. 2 goals now in 2 games, the lad will be buzzing. Ronny took him off right away to give Griffiths game time, Johansen off for Mulgrew then Wakaso for Tonev, all without Commons, Stokes and Forrest, showing we have a really decent squad just now

Scepovic makes it 2-0 and his 2nd goal in 2 games

My man of the match goes to Scepovic, his movement was something I really kept an eye on, he found himself alone in the Killie box a lot we just couldn’t get the ball to him. In Guidetti we have a player we hope we can sign for a few years and a proven international player in Scepovic, so Ronny has many riches in the attacking department, just more often than not we don’t get the ball to them but it will come, I am sure 

Goals thanks to my good man @CelticGoals 

Onto midweek against Partick Thistle in the League Cup Quarter Final
