As the Scottish Premiership heats up, Chris Sutton’s insights shed light on the current state of affairs between Celtic and Rangers.
Following Celtic’s resounding 4-1 victory over Hibernian and Rangers’ narrow 1-0 win at Hearts, the anticipation for the upcoming clash between the two clubs on December 30 is palpable.
Celtic, under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers, are in a formidable position, leading the table by eight points, although Rangers have a game in hand.
However, despite Celtic’s undefeated streak and their emphatic win over Hibernian, there’s a sense that the team hasn’t consistently unleashed its full potential.
Chris Sutton, speaking to Sky Sports Football, emphasised this point, stating, “These periods of games, they come thick and fast. It’s a really important period of games. Celtic haven’t been at their very best. Rangers need to make sure they don’t drop silly points. They did drop silly points at Aberdeen. But I think there is a title race on this season, I do. You have the European fixture coming up.” His comments reflect a belief that the title race is far from over, despite Celtic’s current lead.
The December 30th match between Celtic and Rangers is more than just another game. It’s a pivotal moment that could shape the rest of the season.
A victory for Celtic could quash any lingering doubts about their dominance, while a draw or defeat would leave the door ajar for the Ibrox club, keeping the title race alive and unpredictable.
As the teams prepare for their head-to-head, the question remains: Can they close the gap, or will Celtic continue their march towards another title?
