Boxing Day boost for Celtic fans

Celtic fans will be able to watch tomorrow’s Scottish Premiership action without an expensive Sky Sports subscription.

The broadcaster has decided to air both Rangers vs Hibernian and Hamilton vs Celtic on Sky One, a channel far more accessible to the majority.

It could be a huge day in the Scottish top-flight.

Hibs travel to Ibrox at lunchtime hoping to build on their impressive form this season.

Neil Lennon’s Bhoys then have the task of picking up maximum points in Hamilton, whether Rangers win, lose or draw.

There’s no more room for error in the title race, especially ahead of our own trip to Ibrox in early 2021.

Celtic consistency

Celtic have emerged victorious from the last four fixtures, including the completion of the Quadruple Treble achievement.

The task is now finding genuine consistency in the Premiership across a long period.

That continues tomorrow.

Hamilton are in a bit of a crisis at the moment, with as many as 10 first-team squad members struck down by illness of injury.

After beating them 5-1 earlier in the season, there will be expectations of a comfortable Celtic victory.

The fixture kicks off at 3pm on Boxing Day, so enjoy with your Christmas leftover sandwiches!
