“Togetherness can be a real strong thing” – well said and very true. Maybe some of our so-called “supporters” should remember this. It’s what the word actually means – support !!

On Sunday, the Hoops host Kilmarnock at Celtic Park in a 3pm kick-off as Lennon’s side look to extend a four-match unbeaten run in the league (per Transfermarkt).
Do you agree with what Callum McGregor had to say?
No, he wasn't right
Yes, I agree with him
Outstanding last night.
To take the penalty when he’s not had a great time considering the high standards he has set himself spoke volumes of the player and man.

Thought Callum made a very good point. It’s been the togetherness of the whole club that has made us so successful. It started for me with wee Fergus coming in. It’s stayed with us since then. That’s why we should bin all this demonstrating and get the message across in May.
