In the lunchtime kick-off, Celtic briefly moved eight points to erase its older rival dismantling Hibernian 3-0 at Easter Road. It is easier so that visitors could possibly have hoped. Colin Calderwood administrator has been able to stop the decline of double. It seems he might have accelerated it.
While Calderwood can only be judged that it has given the opportunity to bring their own players to the club is currently unable to maximise the potential of people at your disposal.
Home team rarely threatened Celtic and that Gary Hooper had fired in front to side just Glasgow before the interval, there only would be a winner.
One of the largest of the Hibernian problems this season has been coping without top scorer last season, Marco Antonio Stokes, Celtic signed for £ 2 million in August. Striker turned against his former team yesterday, doubling advantage Celtic from the point of penalty, after they had been shot down Hooper and Irish completed the scoring in minute 65, hit the ball head and Mark Brown’s left post.
At this stage a “Calderwood must go” banner is waved by fans from double, many of which began leaving the ground with more than a quarter of the remaining party.
Rangers were one of the better hitting Hamilton Academical
4-0 at Ibrox but they really should have done more than a place in Celtic goal difference.
Hamilton were without a dozen regular soldiers of the team of first by injury and suspension and Rangers could have reached double figures with a little restraint most front of the goal.
Man of the match Vladimir Weiss put in front a unit of 30 yards and then the Slovak loan from Manchester City, defrauded rookie Michael Devlin what him down and Steven Whittaker convert the resulting penalty.
It seemed as if they would open up the gates but Rangers were despilfarradores and only another goal in the first half came in downtime when Weiss curled in a free throw, Kenny Miller distracted goalkeeper Tomas Cerny and ball drifted in the network. Maurice Edu scored the fourth eight minutes of time with a left-foot shot from the edge of the penalty area.
Rangers face Inverness Caledonian Thistle Tuesday, the first of their three games in hand and Weiss believes that a similar level of performance will be necessary against the champions of the bogey team.
“We wanted to win this game as soon as possible and had to be done in half the time,” he said. “If we can play as we did today from the first minute in the other parties will not have any problem win our games in hand”.
Rangers Manager Walter Smith later revealed that he had intended to send in the Croatian striker Nikica Jelavic towards the end but an injury in the full backup Sasa Papac prevented £ 3.5 million signature to his return then firing a three months. “It was our plan to Sasa suffered a groin injury,” said Smith. “I don’t know, but the extent of the damage, but it is doubtful for the game against Inverness.”
Recovery of Aberdeen under the leadership of Craig Brown and Archie Knox continued when he defeated St. Mirren 2-0 at the Stadio.
There was no yesterday more winners in the SPL. New Manager of Motherwell and former Rangers midfielder Stuart McCall, Scotland is still waiting for their first league victory of a draw with Inverness at Fir Park.
