CHRIS SUTTON has laid out what Steven Gerrard’s men would have to do to pip Celtic to their 8th consecutive title.
The striker who was only two months ago telling everyone the Ibrox club were favourites has changed his tune dramatically.
Writing in his DR Column the BT Sports pundit says the only way they have any semblance of a chance at stopping eight-in-a-row is if Gers beat Celtic twice in the league before the end of the season and even then the striker is still saying it would be difficult.
“I still think Steven Gerrard’s side will need to win both remaining Old Firm games to even stand a chance of taking it to the wire.
“It’s a stretch, to say the least.
“The next few weeks could wrap it up but Celtic should already be plotting for Europe next season.”
With the introduction of Jermain Defoe in January, Sutton and many others felt the pendulam of power had swung in the Ibrox club’s favour but Celtic brought in young, talented loan players in to give them an added boost.
Oli Burke and Timo Weah have been a breath of fresh air for the bhoys. Two lads who Celtic couldn’t afford to sign permanently but brought in to do a job immediately.
