Michael Stewart lauded “peerless” Celtic on a momentous night in the Premiership title race.

Neil Lennon’s men moved ten points clear at the summit of the league after a wonderful 5-0 victory over Hearts at a raucous Paradise.

But the major headlines on the evening were made elsewhere as Kilmarnock shocked Rangers for the second successive season at Rugby Park.

Stewart gave the impression that he reckons the title race could be as good as done, while also praising Celtic for getting better with every passing match.

 

Stewart is spot on about our continued improvement

Of course, Stewart’s mention of “Champions Celtic” could be seen as him referring to last year’s eight-in-a-row triumph.

But it does seem like he’s making the claim that our current ten point advantage is unsurmountable for the trophyless Ibrox gang.

The pundit is spot on too. We just seem to be getting better and better with every passing game.

The change in formation was always going to take time to get used to, but the gaffer must be delighted with how quickly the players are getting to grips with it.

Make no mistake about it, we can now start to see the finishing line and a record equalling ninth title in-a-row.

We must just keep winning. Starting at Aberdeen on Sunday. If we can keep doing that we’ll be champions in no time.
