I just read that the hattrick by Boyle at Hampden was only the 8th in the last 40 years against Rangers - one every 5 years! That puts the lads achievement into some perspective and he only got and 8.4 outa 10 by the pundits - what do you need to do to get a 9 against them even? A hattrick of OG's maybe? Muppets.

The only Celtic man to do it was Moussa D.

Buzz (aka our very own Angus Loughran! ) do you know what our stats are since the Falklands war? Maybe I've blanked it out but I can't remember too many either - insert confused emoji.

Moving over to Motor racing - have any of you ever noticed that many great Formula! drivers are named after Scottish towns?

I can remember big Celtic fan Frank McDougall scored 4 for Aberdeen against Celtic in the mid 1980s.
Eric Black scored a hat trick for Aberdeen at Celtic Park in the early 1980s with 2 goals coming just before half time.
Neuchatel Xamax player Hassan also scored 4 against Celtic in the early 90s.
McCoist scored a hat trick ( 2 penalties of course ) against us in the 1984 league cup final AET.
There will be a few recent hat tricks against European Opposition, with Messi probably being one.
I can remember Brian McClair scoring a hat trick against Rangers before he signed for Celtic, is that on the list?

Hi Buzz - thanks for the info.

I just checked and Brian did indeed score a hattrick against them in 1983 on January 3rd for Motherwell so that just crept in. It's now 9 then.

There is no mention of European hattricks on the list - just domestic games.

1982 - John Hewitt (Aberdeen)
1985 Frank MCDougall (Aberdeen)
1985 John Brown (Dundee)
1996 Alan Johnston (Hearts)
2005 Ivan Sproule (Hibs)
2016 MD (Us)
2018 Jaime MacLaren (Hibs)
2021 Martin Boyle Hibs)

But rather than them I was more interested in us on this topic and it looks like you can only name 3 domestically at the moment. I remember McCoist's very vividly. There must be more - anyone help out?

Back to motor sport but.

What's the hardest part about taking part in drag racing?

Running in heels.!

UUUUUBER for Stubbsie?

It got mentioned last season that the Sparta Prague player was the first to score a hat trick against us at Celtic Park since that Eric Black hat trick for Aberdeen in 1983.
It narrows it down to hat tricks away from home, Good Luck.

BB - I honestly can't think of any and if you can't magic it up either then it must be as rare as rocking horse sh1t.

Like I say maybe I'm employing selective subconscious denial and need a wise man to enlighten me?

So motor racing then.

I remember being at a freezing, wet, windy Hamden for a midweek semi-final against the old Rangers when Harry Hood ran riot and scored a hat-trick that should have been four, but for a cheating linesman. The game ended 3-1 during a period when the Lisbon Lions was being dismantled and the likes of Macari, Dalglish, Callaghan and Hood were staking their claims during the first 9-in-a-row.

Maybe Frank McDougall was the last player to score more than 2 domestic goals against Celtic since 1985.
I can remember it was the first time I’d seen a player get a 10/ 10 in the Sunday Mail ratings.
Ivan Sproule and Alan Johnston scored hat tricks against Rangers and both of them where at Ibrox since 1985.
Dembele and now Boyle have scored hat tricks against Sevco Scotland.

Thanks BB

I don't think any team has score a hat trick against us this century domestically as far as I can see - some record.

A 10/ 10 is quite rare so he probably deserved it for a great performance on the night.
