Celtic won 2-0 at Ross County on Sunday to put them within touching distance of the unlikeliest of title victories.
Down and out in December, to a six point lead in April, it’s quite extraordinary.
The bhoys haven’t tasted defeat on league duties for 28 games on the trot. 24 wins and 4 draws has Ange Postecoglou’s men on the brink of something special.
The official SPFL account has highlighted a ‘massive moment’ in the title race at Dingwall when Jota secured all three points with an 88th minute goal. It made it 2-0 on the day and kept Celtic on course to win this year’s Premiership.
The bhoys in green have been brilliant. The Cup semi-final exit was a sore one but the narrative before the Ross County game was full of pedantic nonsense and wishful thinking by some in the media.
Celtic were adjudged to have played terribly on the day at Hampden yet it still took our rivals until extra time to grab the victory. It’s never great to lose a derby but it was never going to derail what was going on at Celtic Park or Lennoxtown. Ange has made sure of that!
The SPFL account is correct, as goals go, the Jota second calmed everyone down and ensured there would be no late sting in the tail for the bhoys.
It sets up a Glasgow Derby at Celtic Park on Sunday where the hoops can virtually win the league with a victory against The Rangers. Fingers crossed.
