CELTIC MISSING KAYAL

The injury of Beram Kayal has been a big shock for the Celtic team, but they continue to remain hopeful that they will win the title even without the star player.

The Celtic boss Neil Lennon said that it was an unfortunate turn of events that Beram will be sidelined for the next four months due to an ankle injury, but nonetheless, the team has to continue to perform and win.

One of the key areas that Celtic is known for is their midfield position and Kayal was a pivotal player in this sense.

CELTIC SCRAPE AHEAD

Celtic managed to get a narrow 1-0 victory over Rangers, which propelled them to the top of the Scottish Premier League table. Rangers have been dominate since the start of the season, but have started to slip of late.

CELTIC TACKLE SECTARIAN CHANTING

Celtic were recently charged by UEFA and were fined £ 12,000 after their supporters displayed banners that criticised UEFA in an obscene manner. The banners, which were put just before the match against Rennes in the Europa League, has caused much problems to Celtic and its supporters.

Wanyama wants Old Firm nod

Victor Wanyama hopes he will be given the chance to prove himself in the forthcoming Old Firm match.

The Celtic midfielder was forced to watch on from the bench when his side went down 4-2 at Ibrox in September, but now he hopes his manager Neil Lennon will give him the green light to get involved.

It would be nice to play because I didn’t get off the bench last time. It’s the kind of game every player wants to play in,” he said.

“I think the fans have shown very good support to us and myself. They are always behind us and I am very happy to have fans like that.”

STOKES vs COOPER

A competition is brewing within the Celtic dressing room, but it is one that both fans and their manager will be welcoming it, because it is the competition between strikers of Anthony Stokes and Gary Cooper.

Anthony Stokes scored a hat-trick in the 5-0 demolition of St Mirren during the weekend in a match that has helped cause a real shift in the title race in the Scottish Premier League - not least because Kilmarnock managed a surprising 1-0 win over Rangers.

LEDLEY STILL BELIEVES

Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley believes that Celtic can still win the Scottish Premier League - though they might have to win all 26 remaining games, including two Old Firm derbies!

Speaking after another disappointing draw on Saturday, just hours after Rangers had walked off with another three points, Ledley is aware that the team is falling behind in the title race.

"We still believe and believe in the management, we just need to work harder."

CELTIC MIDFIELDER KEEN ON ST MIRREN RETURN

Graham Carey has said that he is very keen to return to St Mirren from Celtic. The 22-year old appears to be surplus to requirements and has spent the majority of the last three seasons out on loan, including a successful spell in Paisley in 2010.. He said that he is now focusing on playing regularly and would consider a return to St Mirren if the opportunity arose.

"I don't know what the future holds for me," Carey said. “I am meeting with Celtic this week and try and get things moving on that front.

CELTIC WIN AGAINST BERWICK

Celtic cruised to yet another win in the Scottish league against Berwick Rangers. The former Arsenal man’s first appearance in the famous hooped shirt is unlikely to live long in the memory but he promised that better is to come from him and his new team-mates.

“I’ve never experienced anything like it,” said the 32-year-old. “The local community deserve credit for getting the pitch playable but it was icy but you get on with it and I’m just glad that there isn’t a replay because we have enough games already.

MURPHY TARGETS TROPHIES

Daryl Murphy has set his sights for all the trophies on offer this season with Celtic. Neil Lennon's Bhoys have already been knocked out of Europe but they have made a stunning start to the domestic campaign, winning all five of their SPL matches.

Celtic entertain Inverness in the third round of the Co-operative Insurance Cup on Wednesday night and Murphy is targeting success. "I think every competition we're left in now, especially the league, we are looking to win," said the 27-year-old, who joined from Sunderland this summer.

STOKES ANTICIPATING CELTIC ARRIVAL

Celtic new boy Anthony Stokes says he has arrived at the club a more mature player after completing a transfer deadline day move.

Stokes put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal at the Glasgow giants following a reported £1.2million switch from SPL rivals Hibernian.

The deal has brought the 22-year-old to Parkhead three years after turning down the Old Firm club, who made overtures for the Irishman in 2007.

Stokes opted to join Sunderland instead, but after a punctuated spell in England, has finally made his way to Celtic.
