Celtic this Saturday kick off the Scottish Premiership with a match against the newly promoted Hearts at the Tynecastle with kickoff at 22:00.
Celtic were kicked out of the Champions League by the Danish side, Midtjylland FC and this puts more weight on Ange Postecoglou. The new manager in the Camp was settled at after a failed three months trial for Eddie Howe.
Celtic has had many complains after the transfer window this summer and no reinforcements were signed in the squad.
A strong win will be a good start off for Postecoglou in the premiership and to win over the fans confidence.
Hearts on the other side had a very successful season in the Scottish Championship managing the title winners and secured a promotion to the Scottish premiership. The last time Hearts received a promotion to the Premiership was back in 2014-15 season and had a good campaign managing the third position with 65 points.
Robbie Neilson who returned to the Tynecastle last year in October is looking forward to prove a point and is determined to win in the premiership opening match.
Celtic will also miss their fans with the fans in attendance sounding theirs cheering to the Hearts side. This is expected to be a thrilling opening match.
