Celtic have appreciated some results during the course of this 2019/20 season so far, but several strong performances also have slipped under the radar.

Needless to say, results from the games will take the headlines, and so in certain conditions, given how significant the big games of Celtic appear to be.

As an example, the 2-0 win at Ibrox and away against Lazio and the League Cup victory are Celtic wins this year.

And as Lazio have been impressive during the course of this campaign in Serie A, whilst Glasgow Derby is consistently must-win matches.

However, numerous other results also have contributed hugely to the push of Celtic for success in addition to a fourth successive treble.

And I have taken a look at six outcomes which have been important to the Hoops’ season but do not get.


This was a win. Celtic outing before this at home in Europe was the defeat to CFR Cluj from the Champions League qualifiers. Therefore, was an enormous quantity of anticipation on the Hoops’ shoulders particularly since this was the first leg of the Europa League play-off.

Before a win away from the next leg, and Neil Lennon’s men produced a confident performance to seal a result in the home.


Celtic opened their Europa League group stage campaign with what was a visit to Roazhon Park, with Rennes enjoying a start.

Celtic produced the powerful performance of what was a fantastic group stage campaign with a hard fought 1-1 draw in France. The side of Julien Stephan are now third in Ligue 1, which emphasises good there was that a result for the Hoops.


Following a disappointing defeat to Rangers in the last match before the winter break, it was critical Celtic responded with a win in their first league outing back against Killie.

And they did so with a good performance from the new system, with Odsonne Edouard, Leigh Griffiths, and Christopher Jullien grabbing the goals.


It was anything but in the afternoon, although this is one of the results that seem comfortable on paper.

Hamilton defended with 10 men in the second half and took the lead early on after Celtic had equalised.

As his creation changed Ryan Christie was introduced as a substitute, and Celtic managed to split down Accies.

The Hoops were given a lead, before James and Eddy Forrest added to the scoreline by Christopher Jullien’s attack 12 minutes from time.


Aberdeen produced arguably their very best home performance last month, in what seemed a fixture that was tricky for the Hoops.

However, Kristoffer Ajer stepped up with a goal to snatch the victory in the game to maintain the Hoops’ momentum moving from the league.
