Nobody should ever be panicking about league tables in September, especially if you are a fan of a team that has just won nine league titles in a row. However, I can admit to a wobble after Bolingoli-Gate.
The whole saga piled on unnecessary pressure to the champions that could have been easily avoided. Celtic are two games behind first and second place teams. Luckily this evening, the Hoops have a chance to move up to second in the league table on goal difference with a win away to St. Mirren.
Celtic will also play another game on Saturday against Livi at Paradise before the first and second-placed teams face off on Sunday. If Celtic win their next two games they will put the pressure back on their Glasgow rivals before their game at Easter Road on Sunday against a new look Hibs team.
If Lennon sticks to his guns and keeps to two strikers there is no reason why both Mirren and Livi don’t end up on the same sort of result that Ross County did the weekend.
Celtic have enough firepower to bury any team and once the backline is tightened up there is no reason for a winning streak to start. First things first though.
