Celtic’s form at the moment is blistering. The 5-0 Scottish Cup win over St Johnstone was the Hoops’ sixth win in a row.
The next five matches the Hoops face though will be a much sterner test. They will also represent how much progress the Hoops have made at home and abroad.
First up is the first leg of the Europa League clash against Valencia, then a trip to Rugby Park to face Kilmarnock.
After the second leg against Valencia the Bhoys play Motherwell at home and Hearts away on league duty.
The Hoops will be put to the test in these five games. Valencia will be a very difficult side to get a result against. Most fans would probably have the Spanish side as favourites to go though, and that’s understandable.
In the league, the Hoops return to Rugby Park and Tynecastle – both venues they have already lost at this season. Motherwell are in a good run of form so their visit to Celtic Park can’t be overlooked.
At the moment Celtic currently lead the title by six points. If the lead remains at that or increases after the three league games, the Hoops would be in pole position to win their eighth league title in a row.
Brendan Rodgers has arguably passed every test he’s had to face since becoming Celtic boss. The next five matches will be perhaps his sternest test yet.
