It’s fair to say that 2019 has been a great year for Celtic, and it’s only getting better at present. All of the Bhoys have been great this season, home and away, and that’s a testament to the squad that Brendan Rodgers has got.
Celtic Park has been an absolute fortress as of late, and it’s a joy to see our home stadium become such a hotbed of brilliant performances from the boys in green.
Callum McGregor has recently been discussing our excellent home form, and he’s put it down to the concentration and preparation that goes into each fixture. You can read his full quote below:
CM: “I think our perfect home record is down to the performance, concentration and preparation for each game. It’s a case of working hard every day, and taking that into each game. This part of the season is always exciting, and is where all players want to help out the team.”

Certainly, home games do likely always come with a bit of extra pressure for the players, and perhaps that’s why they’re so keen to get the win in those circumstances.
You’ve also got to think that the fans play a role. Celtic Park has been deafening in recent weeks, and it’s almost impossible not to feel inspired when there are so many Celts singing their hearts out.
One thing is for sure – we need to keep winning at home. If we do, we’ll stand an excellent chance of retaining our title.
