What are today’s lucky numbers? 12, the points gap between Celtic and the pack and 29, Celtic’s superior goal advantage over second place. 5, the number of consecutive Celtic goals against Newco Kyogo scored, before Jota interrupted his run. Is this a record for Celtic players against the Rangerses?
7, the number of league games remaining, 21, the points to be fought for and 10, the points required to guarantee the title. 6 of those 10 are up for grabs in our next two fixtures, against Kilmarnock and Motherwell, teams in the bottom half of the table, although Motherwell have found form.
Final thought on Saturday’s game, will Newco ever understand the value of marking Kyogo?
