The Grand Stand View

Having a passionate and loyal support base is not something many sides within the Mzansi diski realm can boast of, yet Celtic have continued to enjoy the off-field perks of having such a large and active fan base and now they need to start adding more positive results to the mixture and allow this great football institution to become a thriving and successful football club on the field of play. Since their establishment as a true premier league fixture, Celtic have always managed to assemble a competitive football club that can mix in with the more resourceful clubs in the top half of the table. There now needs to be a degree of stability in the coaching department and on the personnel side as well if Celtic are to begin elevating their level and become a side that can push for a top 5 league finish consistently while adding a good cup run or two in each season. The potential is there for Siwelele Sa Mosokolara to become even better as a football side, they should take heart from last season’s finish and aim to challenge for a higher finish in the top 8 this season as they continue to entertain us while illuminating our football spectrum with their striking and passionate supporters.
