Celtic have five games still to play this month against teams they have recorded two draws, three defeats and no wins against this season. Hearts and Rangers conformably recorded home wins against Celtic while St Johnstone won at Celtic Park. Udinese were fortunate to escape Glasgow with a point thanks to a late penalty, while Kilmarnock demonstrated their unpredictability by taking, then losing, a three goal lead.
There was a bit of optimistic chat over the weekend that three of our next four league games are at home but these are the teams we need to beat to win the league. If Celtic come through this month unscathed in domestic football they will win the league, but despite current good form, this will be a huge challenge, starting against Hearts at 15:00 on Saturday.
