Ahhh, Christmas.

That wonderful time of year for spending time with family, drinking alcohol, eating excellent food and dressing up your dog.

Yes, our canine friends cannot escape the festivities these days and no-one has proven that more than Celtic defender Diego Laxalt.

The Uruguayan clearly enjoys the festive period, posting a magic picture to his Instagram earlier today.

With a raging Celtic dog. This stare would kill.

I’m not sure if the little hound is a Rangers fan offended by wearing green (they’re like that eh?), tired of Scott Brown in midfield or worried about the Boxing Day trip to Hamilton Accies.

 

Whatever the issue is, the four-legged friend needs cheering up this Christmas time.

Thankfully Laxalt’s family look like a wonderful bunch and I wish them all the best over the Festive period.

The Christmas task for Celtic

When he’s not being a Christmas family man, Laxalt will have his eyes on maximum points against Hamilton Accies and Dundee United ahead of the new year.

If the left-back and his teammates can pick up maximum points ahead of the mammoth derby at Ibrox, we have a fighting chance.

Let’s not forget, a Neil Lennon team won away to Rangers last season. It’s not impossible to do so again.

After last night’s win over Ross County, a further three victories would set us up very well for 2021.

It might even cheer up Laxalt’s lovely wee dog.

In other news, Brian Rice sounds like a worried man as Hamilton hit crisis ahead of Celtic visit.
