HUGH KEEVINS has written in his latest Clyde1 column it must be ‘galling’ for Celtic fans to hear Steven Gerrard berate his team’s killer instinct on a day where the Bhoys fell flat in Edinburgh, highlighting how poor Celtic’s away form has brought them into a ‘title fight’ midway through the season.
Celtic are third right now behind The Rangers and Kilmarnock but have games in hand to go back to the top of the league in the coming weeks.
However, Keevins believes it must be frustrating for Celtic fans to know how good the bhoys can be but find themselves dropping so many points away from home.
‘It must have been galling for the Celtic support to hear Steven Gerrard say Rangers had “zero killer instinct” on the day Rangers went back to the top of the Premiership table.
‘Gerrard ruthlessly exposed his side’s limitations for public perusal and spared no-one’s feelings in spite of leapfrogging Celtic and Kilmarnock with a lacklustre display against Hamilton Accies.
‘But Celtic were sub-zero from start to finish against Hibs at Easter Road as home truths tumbled out in front of the limited number of fans who were able to get inside the ground because of the home club’s inexplicable ticket selling policy.’
Celtic have two home games followed by two away games before the winter shutdown. A Parkhead doubleheader against Motherwell and Dundee followed by a Boxing Day date with Aberdeen and a trip to Ibrox to round off 2018.
It’s going to be an interesting run in before the winter break.
