CELTIC stand-in skipper Charlie Mulgrew has praised former team Aberdeen.
The Pittodrie side are four points clear at the top of the Premiership although the champions have two games in hand.
Mulgrew, though, is confident the Hoops will make up lost ground on their way to clinching a fourth successive title.
The versatile international defender said: “Aberdeen are looking a good and settled side.
“They are also looking strong and they are keeping clean sheets.
“There is a lot of talk about them. But, at the end of the day, we just need to worry about ourselves.
“Celtic have a couple of games in hand and it is about what we do.
“We have to go on a good run of winning matches, get on top of that league and stay there.”
