I started Celtic By Numbers as a result of capturing data about my sons football team to help the coaches and aid performance analysis and development. I realised I could do the same for Celtic matches, and identified that no one else seemed to have the depth of data I could collect without paying an Opta. So I started to back fill all the matches from the start of the Ronnie Deila era – it seemed like a time of optimism and a fresh start!
I do not claim to be an analytics expert nor a professional coach. But I do aim to provide unique insight into Celtic player, team, and opposition performance from a unique data set. I welcome feedback on how to improve what is captured and how the information is presented. Thanks for reading and Hail! Hail!
