Celtic Diary Monday October 2: Still Unbeaten, But Only Just
Calum MacGregor came riding to Celtic’s rescue on Saturday as Hibernian bucked the trend and decided to try to win at Celtic Park, something which doesn’t seem to occur to many teams as an option.
The under rated midfielder scored twice-his second with just ten minutes or so to go-to give Celtic a point when frankly it didn’t look as though it was going to happen.
MacGregor had opened the scoring after fifteen minutes but those pesky east coasters hauled themselves in front in the second half, which had everybody desparately searching for someone to blame, until the bold Calmac stepped up to slot in an equaliser.
Hardly anyone has given any credit to Hibernian, who were far and away the toughest domestic opponent thus far this season, but whats also interesting is that when you look at the league table, Aberdeen have been quietly going about their business as well..

“All I have ever tried to do is keep progressing and keep learning at Celtic,”
“I have tried to make an impact whenever I have been in the team.
“I was pleased with the goals against Hibs but obviously I would have preferred it if they had come in a game when we had taken all three points.
“But for now it is just about trying to learn all the time.
“I actually haven’t spoken to Gordon Strachan since I was last in the Scotland squad.
“It has just been up to me to go away and concentrate on my football with Celtic and do everything I can to play well. I wanted to be in the Champions League this season, to try and play there and make a contribution in that kind of environment.
“I have been working on doing the things that manager wants me to do and I have always felt that if I do that then everything else takes care of itself.”
