It is a measure of how poor Celtic have been this season that St Mirren’s Kyle McAllister sounds confident about his team’s chances of beating the Hoops for the second time in a fortnight.
Only last Saturday, Celtic slumped to a 2-1 defeat at home against St Mirren. Since then the Hoops have defeated Kilmarnock and Motherwell. That is a bit of a return to form.
Doesn’t seem worried
However, that has not stopped McAllister from claiming that St Mirren can pull off a second win over the Hoops.
“We have got Celtic again on Wednesday and obviously did a great job at Parkhead recently. Why can’t we do that again at home? Hopefully we can get three more points” he said (The Herald).
“If we play like we did at Parkhead can we get a result? Yeah, we switched up the formation for that game and matched them up. A lot of people don’t do that. They usually go to Parkhead and sit in.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen on Wednesday, but I’m sure we will go and match up against them again, and hopefully it works out the same way” he concluded.
Comments should fire Hoops up
Those comments should get Celtic fired up. With no disrespect to them, teams like St Mirren should be facing fearing Celtic, not hoping to get a second win in less than a fortnight.
It is time that Celtic got that fear factor back. It will be too late to make much of an impact on this season, but a comfortable win over St Mirren would send out a message that Celtic can’t be taken lightly.
A 3-0 win for example wouldn’t all of a sudden change the trajectory of the season. But it would show that Celtic are getting on the right track. Hopefully the Hoops can make it three wins in a row and banish the memory of the recent loss to St Mirren.
