Andy Walker believes that Celtic are in pole position to win the Scottish Premiership after a resounding 3-0 victory over their title rivals Rangers in the Old Firm Derby. The defending champions have now conceded three goals in their last two league games. Walker believes that after their nine-year title-winning streak was snapped they have the squad as well as the manager to win the title.
“I know there are a couple of games against Rangers to play, but to go top of the league now, and in that manner, says a lot about this Celtic side,” Andy Walker said. “A lot of the players have been in this position before, they have been winners, it was just such a poor season last time. You’ve got to look at the options Ange Postecoglou still has to bring in. He’s got Kyogo Furuhashi, David Turnbull, Tom Rogic, Christopher Jullien – Celtic have got a really strong squad and that is what gives every Celtic supporter hope that Postecoglou can get that title back.”
“The biggest message was that this wasn’t a close game – Celtic battered Rangers. That is what gives every player a lift, and the supporters. Celtic are only in front by a point but, with 14 games left to play, Celtic are in pole position,” he added. “Celtic play at Fir Park against Motherwell on Sunday a few hours before Rangers host Hearts. It’s important Celtic build on it and put pressure on Rangers.”
