Celtic made some incredible additions to their squad last summer and in January, and they were huge reasons behind the club’s Premiership and League Cup double last season. It was a spectacular turnaround to say the least, after the Hoops had finished trophyless and 25 points behind the Rangers in the disastrous 2020/21 campaign.
Celtic and the Rangers must both be keen to strengthen their squads over the summer transfer window and have a need to do so as well. The Hoops will be returning to Champions League group stage football after several years and must be keen to impress in Europe’s elite competition. On top of that, they have the Scottish Premiership title to defend against their Glasgow rivals as well.
Celtic were not expected to even challenge the Rangers for the Premiership title this time around, after finishing 25 points behind the Ibrox side in the previous campaign. On top of that, they had a vastly different squad, with most of the first-team regulars arriving in the summer and a manager in the form of Ange Postecoglou, who had never managed a top flight European club before arriving at Parkhead.
Celtic are expected to make a few additions to their squad in the upcoming transfer window. While a full scale rebuild like last summer is no longer required, Ange Postecoglou could do with reinforcements in a few positions with the Scottish Premiership title to defend and main stage UEFA Champions League football returning to Parkhead after many years.

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton told Rangers fans not to do “anything naughty” in Seville as he delivered a cheeky parody of official videos from the Ibrox club. Former Ibrox players including Graeme Souness, Richard Gough and Ian Durrant have appeared in videos on Rangers’ social media channels urging supporters not to let the club down when they are in Spain for the Europa League final.
Going into the Scottish Cup semi-final, there were many reasons for Celtic fans to be confident. They had won the previous two Glasgow derbies and were coming off of a 7-0 win over St Johnstone last weekend. On the other hand, the Rangers had had to play 120 minutes in midweek against SC Braga while Ange Postecoglou’s side had gotten some much needed time off.

To be very honest, Celtic just could not get things going against the Rangers at Hampden Park. Although they were still close to a victory, leading till the 78th minute of the game, and questions must be raised about Bobby Madden’s refereeing on the day as well, ultimately, it was not a performance from the Hoops that warranted a win.
