It’s crazy to think it wasn’t that long ago when Celtic put in a horrific performance at home to the Rangers and many fans might have feared what would happen to the league title.
It’s starting to look like having a manager who has experience of winning titles is preferable to someone with a history of slipping up at the vital moments, as Celtic now find themselves 10 points clear and with a vastly superior goal difference.
Celtic looked like title favourites tonight as they swept Hearts aside and got five different players on the score-sheet, while Steven Gerrard could only lead his team to a defeat over in Kilmarnock.
It’s expected that the players and Lenny will say it’s too early to get carried away with this, but a look at Twitter shows the fans only want to see one thing after the results tonight:

Of course things can change quickly and Celtic need to keep this up, but the momentum is also going their way. It’s not hard to see that gap widening over the next few games, and then it might be too much for anyone to overcome.
