Celtic averted the banana skin defeat with a comfortable 3-0 victory over relegated Carvetti at Parrots Park.
The Celt’s struggled to get to grips with the conditions as the swirling wind made judging the flight of the ball virtually impossible. That been said Celtic still seemed off the pace after Thursday's tough game against Rangers.
Celtic's main threat was through the pace of Jamie Stott and Simon Chaplow.
Celtic had two penalty shouts turned down by referee Vogt as first Stott was brought down and then Chaplow was pushed off the ball.
The Green and Whites finally broke Carvetti's resolve on the half-hour mark as Celtic were awarded a free kick, on the edge of the box as Marc Brewer took advantage of a poorly set-up wall to fire into the corner of the goal.
Five minutes later Celtic extended their lead. Again the pace of Jamie Stott caused the Carvetti defence problems as he was brought down, this time Vogt had no hesitation in pointing to the spot.
Stott brushed himself down and somehow persuaded normal penalty taker Marc Brewer that he should take the kick......which he then confidently fired home.
Celtic were forced to make changes with injuries to skipper Gary Cotton and midfield partner Mike Sharpe.
and Darryl Moffat came on and Celtic also changed formation. The changes saw Celtic settle and start playing some excellent football as Carvetti tired.
The only thing missing were goals as Celtic spurned chance after chance.
Long range efforts flying narrowly wide from Wronski, Chaplow, Marc Brewer and Matt Holding
Matthew Branthwaite in the Carvetti goal making several good saves including a one on one with Darryl Moffat.
Marc Brewer then missed a chance from close range that must have been easier to score than miss!
Celtic finally got their third when a free kick was floated in and Marc Brewer got to the ball first and flicked the ball home with his head.
In fairness to Carvetti they kept battling and Dean Wicks had to be on his toes to keep his second clean sheet in succession, especially from a free-kick from 20 yards out from Ostle that looked destined for the corner of the net.
A good victory in difficult conditions. And what a difference a week makes......from fighting off relegation to sitting 5th in the league, with one game remaining.
Man of the match......though he could have worked a bit harder goes to Marc Brewer.
