Two wins to go

So 2 to go till 55.

Looking at the fixtures if we win our next 2 the earliest it can become mathematically done is the 7th of march when Celtic play Dundee United.

If however Celtic win then it's a very long wait until 21st of March. That's quite a wait.

I have both the week of the 8th and 22nd booked off for super sash bash.

I for one don't care a jot about winning at sharkhead. It's about us and what we have done so earliest possible for me.

What about you guys? And how do you plan to mark the occasion?

On paper Celtic retained most of the quad treble squad and spent £20 million +

Biggest gap was losing a keeper but the spent £5 million there.

Brought in international LB as Tierney hadn't been replaced.

Then also big money striker and CB

Excellent Scottish talent they had been after for a few years but list due to injury.

Looking at that Celtic fans had every reason to be optimistic
----------------------------------------------------------------------
If Celtic kept Forster they'd have been in a far greater position this season for sure, that was a true failure especially when you see the calamity they brought in to replace him.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
We see it with McGregor. He is worth a good few points a season in those close games when struggling.

Forster was the same.

I do worry about replacing McGregor but think he is good for another year
----------------------------------------------------------------------
he shows no signs of slowing down sad thing is we let Fotheringham go, he was a really good keeper he just couldn't compete with McGregor.

Hopefully the lad at Livi on loan will be ready to step up in a couple of seasons

10IAR was firmly in celtics grasp.

Not one celtic fan I know of predicted they would bomb out of europe twice, lose to the bottom of the league at home in the League Cup and we would be in a position to win this league by the split this year.

The ones that are sitting back saying this was inevitable are enjoying the benefit of some serious 20:20 vision in hindsight.

I would say there has been four key factors for me;

1. Lennon. He has been absolutely found out. Simple as that. Totally one dimensional with a massive chip on his shoulder.

2. Goalie situation. Been a disaster since FF refused to sign and you went for Barkas.

3. Duffy; Bet on him big time and lost big time. Was supposed to be the missing piece of the jigsaw at the back but in reality he has been a liability from day 1.

4. Broon. Hes clearly absolutely done. He set the tone, he set the example and he dragged Celtic through games to wins when they were toiling.

Now he is just a one man embodiment of a team that used to be.

Hes been done in my eyes since the 1-0 game at Ibrox when Jack scored. Arfield repeatedly pressed Brown high up the field and he 'passed' the ball out the side of the park about 4 times in the first half. His dwindling physical robustness and aggression could no longer adequately mask his lack of footballing ability.

Rodgers had Brown believing he was a terrific footballer and completely untouchable. Now hes just Lennons pal for pints.

Yes Celtic have been poor but over the piece Rangers have been remarkable this season.

The only thing missing for me is giving Celtic a proper hiding. But theres still time yet.....

to be fair hamish thats a lot to predict.

forster was a biggy imo, i said as much at the time.

forster, eddie, and a need for wingers.

we brought in decent players but when your instructions are as detailed as "go score" it doesnt always work out

Nobody saw it coming.

You would have thought based on budget alone Lennon would be able to get away with it for another season.

But Barkas, Ajeti and Duffy have been such spectacular flops no-one would have seen it coming.

And without Brown being able to drive them on and lead by example I think the whole thing has just crumbled.

In the games I have seen the armband has looked too heavy for McGregor as well. Great wee player but has looked like he is trying too hard and has struggled at times.

I like Celtics McGregor, always have and said so plenty on here over the years.

Not seen the same player this season. Maybe it's the armband and being a vice captain as Hamish suggests maybe it's just the feeling at the club but he is a shadow of the guy I've seen in past games

What a season it has been.

Celtic were very much the overwhelming favourites going into this one. Track record of winning titles, kept their best players, spent some big money in the summer up against a team of bottlers who have won nothing.

What could possibly go wrong??

Well we have been magnificent this season and Celtic have been utter dung.

It has been truly astonishing how it has panned out.

Who would have thought we would have been the ones to hold our nerve and Celtic would be the ones who would sheidt the bed under the pressure of delivering the 10?

All the credit goes to us though - the consistency in the league has been incredible and the point gap is so wide that is a reflection of a consistent dominant team that has worked its socks off to get us to the brink of the title.

SG and his boys deserve all the credit.

In three short years he has taken us from being a joke of a team getting regularly pumped by 4 and 5 goals off Celtic to where we are now - looking at potentially another last 16 of the Europa and the chance to win the league before the split.

Remarkable.

Remarkable how the narrative changes as well, not long ago people were calling for Slippy Gs head. See what can be achieved if managers get time.

there are always people who want a manager gone after one bad result, even with probably winning the title great results in EL some will want rid of SG.

as far as I was aware there was not a large call for his head and Rangers have continued to make progress each season he has been in charge, hopefully that will continue

I think there was maybe one game that had me seriously questioning SG. But after a quick cooling off he was forgiven.

Most Gers fans I know were about the same.

As folks have said - bigger picture was always an underlying improvement, significant progress in Europe and some decent signings.

The club were always still completely behind SG as well.

They did very well to have the courage of their convictions. Especially when all certain elements of the press could focus on was the lack of a trophy.

Hopefully we will get this over the line and DK will be fully vindicated in his appointment of ‘won nothing’ slippy G.👍
