Superb Celtic run has gone unnoticed and deserves more credit

The recent managerial upheaval at Celtic seems to have blinded people to a superb run of form that the Hoops are currently in.

After losing 1-0 to Rangers in December, the Hoops have won 11 domestic games in a row. Which is by far and away their best run of the season.

The run of victories has allowed the Hoops to go eight points clear at the top of the league. They have also clinched a place in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

Massive credit goes to the players

A massive amount of credit has to go to the players. They have taken the managerial problems in their stride, winning at two venues they lost at earlier in the season.

Big upturn in away form

The upturn in away form is a big reason why the Hoops have kept clear at the top of the league. Wins at St Johnstone, Kilmarnock, Hearts and Hibernian have provided a bedrock to the run of form.

It is highly unlikely that the run will go on until the end of the season. The Hoops will drop points sooner rather than later.

However, should Celtic go on to win the league and Scottish Cup, then the recent run of wins will be a big contributor towards that. Huge credit has to go to the players for still having the will to win after all the recent success.
