AS Celtic move into the busy and hectic Christmas period, manager Neil Lennon will be hoping that his team will continue to show the form they have in recent season to kick start this season.
Celtic’s form over the festive period tends to be fairly consistent and where the team starts to build momentum. Celtic seem to enjoy their best run of form after the winter shut down, but with the shut down cancelled this year due to the global pandemic, just how important will it be for the Hoops to continue their tradition of successful Christmas periods?
Here we have a look at the past five seasons to show just how important this period has been in terms of picking up momentum for the title run in for the Parkhead side.
Nov-31st Jan: 10 wins 1 draw one defeat.
Title run in: 13 wins 2 draws 1 defeat

Clearly Neil Lennon will be looking to keep this tradition going and end Celtic’s poor run of form in the lead up to the Christmas period and looking at the history of the performance over this period, good results help Celtic build momentum going into the title run in.
The hard work for the team starts today at Hibs after an impressive 4-1 away win at Motherwell.
