Former Celtic manager makes an interesting comment about current situation

Celtic will face Partick Thistle and Kilmarnock in their next two Scottish Premiership games.

David Hay has written in The Glasgow Evening Times that it is best for Celtic that they are playing away from home in their next two games.

The Bhoys will take on Partick Thistle at the Firhill Stadium this afternoon before facing Kilmarnock at Rugby Park next weekend in the Scottish Premiership.

Former Celtic midfielder and manager Hay has explained in The Glasgow Evening Times why it is best for the Hoops that their next two league matches are away from Celtic Park.

“There is an aspect of a home performance just now at Celtic Park in which the anxiety from the terraces also plays a part and there are periods in games when you can sense the agitation of the crowd,” Hay wrote in The Glasgow Evening Times.

“In some ways it may actually help Celtic to play away from home this weekend and next when they are down at Rugby Park.”

Celtic are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 63 points from 28 matches.

The Bhoys are a point clear of second-placed Aberdeen, who have played a game more.

Celtic fans are understandably frustrated with the current situation, as they expect Ronny Deila’s side to do much better than they are doing at the moment.

Playing away from home for their next two matches is going to relieve some of the pressure on the team, and that could help them pick up all six points.
