One thing that’s flying under the radar this season is Celtic’s form at Parkhead.

Brendan Rodgers’ men may only be one point clear at the top of the table, but their home results haven’t gotten the praise they deserve.

Celtic racked up four goals and a simple destruction of St Mirren on Wednesday. That followed up a similar 3-0 defeat of Airdrie at Parkhead too. But these have simply been routine all season, with some sensational results.

Celtic are, of course, expected to win at home domestically. Despite that, the nature of their victories and consistency of them haven’t gotten the admiration they truly deserve.

For example, out of their 11 domestic matches at Parkhead this season, Celtic have won all of them. In their last five alone, the Hoops have bagged 18 goals and conceded just one goal. Even that goal, an Eamonn Brophy penalty that never was, was harsh at the time.

11 out of Celtic’s 18 home games have ended in clean sheets. The only teams to score at Parkhead this season are RB Leipzig, Salzburg, AEK Athens, Livingston, and Hibernian. Out of all of Celtic’s games at home, they’ve lost just seven goals all season.

In all competitions, Celtic have played 18 matches at Parkhead (including Champions League and Europa League qualifying and group stage). The Hoops have won 16 of them. Only Salzburg have come to Glasgow and won at Paradise this season. A draw against AEK Athens was the other blip.

Yet that unbeaten domestic run did start fresh this season after Aberdeen won at Parkhead on trophy day last season. They’re the only side to come to Glasgow’s East End in over three years and take maximum points. That alone is ridiculously impressive, regardless of who you’re up against.

Celtic are absolutely flying at Celtic Park, and aren’t getting the credit they deserve for it. Yes, the away form is patchy, but you’d be surprised if Celtic didn’t brush up on that in the second half of the season.

But as for their home form? Nobody in the country can seem to touch them on any given day.

Now watch Accies win 1-0 on Saturday to make this all sound ridiculous!
