If the Premiership divides into four groups:
Celtic: 8 points clear at the top with 67 games in hand.
Hearts, Newco and Aberdeen: within 2 points of each other in the battle for two Europa League games in June 2017.
St Johnstone: isolated in the middle of an 8 point bubble.
The rest: all 2 points from the automatic relegation spot.
Then Motherwell top their group. They have infinitely more to play for than Celtic at Fir Park tomorrow. For them, this is about livelihoods.
We have an early kick-off at what will be a hostile environment. Arrive with your war face on, Celtic, and get the job done.
Pretty stunning work by the Celtic commercial team, who, alone against the nation’s major retailers, were promoted by The Telegraph as one of The best Christmas 2016 adverts. A level of professionalism is beginning to envelop the club (and I know it’s not there completely yet).
