It's an early start for most Bhoys tomorrow, as the long trip North to Aberdeen awaits, in the next adventure on the quest for the league flag.

After all this week's nonsense about the 'shame game' against Hearts on Sunday, it's time for Celtic to go out and shut alot of people up. A win tomorrow would practically make sure of the league Championship's destination.

Aberdeen are always up for these 'Cup Finals.' They are second bottom of the league and from what I have seen this season they are a very poor outfit. However, after a good win at Dens Park on Wednesday mixed with the atmosphere that a Celtic game brings, they will certainly be up for it.

Bobo Balde is off to play in the African Nations Cup so some shuffling in the defence will have to be done. Balde will be missed but there are several able replacements in the side.

I personally hope Big John Hartson bags a couple tomorrow. It would be the perfect way to shut up 'hands in the air' Craig Levein and his chums in the Scottish media.

Enjoy the game.

Celtic-Mad Prediction: Aberdeen 0-4 Celtic
