CELTIC had a great start to the season which has but the last two SPFL games have seen the club drop 5 points out of six and the Scottish champions find themselves trailing in the league.
We decided to take a look back at last years league table after eight games and under Brendan Rodgers we were actually three points worse off and sitting in third behind Hearts and Hibs.
The biggest change is the Ibrox clubs upturn in form. They didn’t beat Celtic but they have yet to drop points against the seven other SPFL teams they have come up against so far. Steven Gerrard’s men are seven points better off than last term and 11 goals to the good with Celtic six goals better off than last term.
Celtic fans must now realise – at this moment in time – they are in a title fight with their local rivals. Many have not wanted to call it so but it’s time to wake up and to not treat their form so far as a threat would be negligible.
Celtic have four home games in the next five SPFL fixtures. The bhoys will need to turn the screw. First up is Ross County on October 19. With the Ibrox club not playing until Sunday at Tynecastle Celtic must ensure Gerrard’s men head to Edinburgh in second place.
