All thoughts now turn to Tynecastle for Celtic

As terrific as Wednesday night’s win against Dundee was, all thoughts will now turn to the Sunday lunchtime showdown in the capital as we take on Hearts at Tynecastle.

We will most likely find ourselves five points behind just as we did at Fir Park last Sunday. That again bring its own pressure and we will have to be up for the challenge if we want to stay in the title race.

Hearts are having a terrific campaign, and despite the usual half hearted performance in a heavy defeat at Ibrox last week followed by a draw against Hibs at Tynecastle in midweek, we all know that the Gorgie side will raise their game significantly when we come to town.

We have got to show resilience as well as our ability if we want to come away from the Capital with all three points.

If we play anywhere near the level we showed against Dundee we will win, make no mistake. Even a similar display to that of our last trip to Tynecastle, when we put on a fine display in a 4-1 victory will be sufficient enough to earn all three points.

Unfortunately we don’t know which side will turn up on Sunday. For our own sake it’s got to be the same side we seen in the second half at Fir park last week, or the same efficient side we witnessed midweek.

If we can replicate that form we will win the game, that I have no doubt about, but anything less and it will a tough afternoon.

    I don’t think I have read a more negative page for Celtic in the build up to a game in my life
