Celtic 2-1 Hibernian

Hibs took the game to Celtic from the start of this match and went ahead through Scott Brown after 8 minutes. Hibs continued to outplay Celtic for most of the first half but as half time approached Celtic started to create chances. The second half brought striking changes from Celtic and they proved to be the catalyst for swinging the match in their favour. Two goals in four minutes around the hour mark was enough to secure three points. All could have been different is Ivan Sproul had taken two clear chances that fell his way either side of half time.

Unfortunately history will show another defeat for Hibs in Glasgow although we regularly see Hibs pushing the old firm all the way in Glasgow these days. I suppose credit should be given to Celtic for digging in and turning the match round. If Hibs continue to perform to these levels the points will start to gather and we will climb up the SPL table.

Other scores today were as follows:

Hearts 4-1 Inverness
St Mirren 1-3 Dundee Utd
Falkirk 0-1 Motherwell
Aberdeen 1-0 Dunfermline
Kilmarnock v Rangers (Sunday)

  1. Celtic have learned well the words of the late great Bill Shankly of Liverpool......`the match is for 90 mins plus added time, and the match is not over at half time. It is not over till its over` !!!

    Mr Mowbray MUST instil this concept into the Hibs team, and then we might see some consistent results !
