Despite what new Sevco boss Pedro says, Brendan Rodgers has the best squad in Scotland, and the gap of 25 points his Bhoys have over nearest rivals Aberdeen, with Pedro’s team a further 8 points behind, is proof of that.
Players like captain Scott Brown, Moussa Dembele, Stuart Armstrong, Kieran Tierney and Scott Sinclair, to name but a few, are all having fantastic seasons, meaning there is no other team in the land that can touch us.
And it’s entirely possible that the Hoops could go a full domestic season unbeaten, with only a handful of games left.
But it’s not just ability Celtic have in abundance. It’s discipline too.
From the start of the campaign, you could almost say from the minute John Beaton gave Hearts a phantom penalty at Tynecastle, the Bhoys have had to put up with more than their far share of nonsense.
Ridiculous refereeing decisions along with some brutal tackling, almost week in, week out, have tested the discipline of the players who to be fair have kept a lid n their emotions, particularly with so much at stake.
There’s no doubt Brendan Rodgers’ temperament has had a massive influence over how the Bhoys react. It’s very seldom, if ever, d you see Brendan lose his composure.
So, while ability counts, keeping the heid does too…
