Celtic saw out 2007 with what was ultimately a comfortable 3-0 victory over Gretna at Celtic Park.

Gordon Strachan’s men had to show a fair amount of resilience as the visitors started the game strongly, but having gone into half-time a goal ahead thanks to Scott McDonald, the champions showed their quality in the second period.

Scott Brown doubled Celtic’s lead in the 49th minute and then in the very last minute of the match, man-of-the-match Aiden McGeady scored a third thanks to a wicked deflection of Gretna defender, Ryan McGuffie.

From the outset the visitors looked like a side determined to hold out against any early onslaughts, with the midfield and defensive ranks sitting-in deep inside their own half.


Way to take care of business against a team that the Bhoys should beat. Next up: Rangers at home!
