THE games keep on coming in the Scottish Premiership and there’s a cracker in store when Hibs host Celtic this midweek.

Ange Postecoglou will demand a victory from his side to keep the festive fans in the best spirits going into 2023.

Celtic ran out 6-1 winners last time the two sides met

However it will not be easy as Lee Johnson‘s Hibs side will be doing their best to spoil the occasion.

Johnson will also be desperate for three points of his own as he eyes up that third placed spot.

There is only two points separating the Hibees from that best of the rest finish, and can climb up the ranks if any of Aberdeen, Hearts, St Johnstone or St Mirren slip up and they beat the Hoops.

But Celts also have their title race to think about and can maintain their nine point cushion with a win.

What they said

Postecoglou insists that he’s not afraid to blast his players if they are found to not be doing their job.

And says that he wouldn’t be doing hjis job properly if he didn’t.

Speaking after the St Johnstone game, he said: “I think the players would probably have been disappointed if I had walked into the dressing-room after the Livingston game and ignored things.

“There were times when we didn’t stick to our principles and weren’t disciplined. That’s what they expect of me, and that’s what I expect of myself.

“I try to stay as even-tempered as I can in terms of analysing what I see, and what is important to us.

“The players relate to that and become accustomed to it. So when we do analysis we do it in the absence of the scoreboard and what it shows up there. We just look purely at the football we play, and the kind of team we want to be.

“What’s important for me is I want us to play well. My mood’s kind of dictated by how we play.”
