Former England international Trevor Sinclair was clearly delighted with the way the weekend panned out for Celtic.

Neil Lennon’s team have forged a five-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership after an Odsonne Edouard inspired win over Ross County and a Rangers defeat to Hearts.

Effectively undoing our calamitous derby result in late December, it’s the perfect kind of momentum we need heading deeper into a hugely important period of the season.

With fixtures coming thick and fast over the next few weeks, mostly away from home, we really need to build an advantage where possible.

The majority of Rangers’ immediate upcoming matches will be played at Ibrox.

Sinclair, who played for Queens Park Rangers, West Ham and Manchester City clearly enjoyed the result in Edinburgh, taking to Twitter and sharing a ten-in-a-row message with supporters.

Fans were quick to give the thumbs up to his social media message, enjoying that the talkSPORT pundit is taking a vested interest in how the season pans out in Scotland.

 

Team can’t get caught up title hype

Although there’s a huge expectation amongst supporters for Celtic to go on and win nine and ten league titles in succession, the Celtic team must put that history-making excitement to one side and focus on the here and now.

There are still miles to go this season, nevermind next.

Lennon and his Bhoys will be entirely dialled in on a trip to St Johnstone on Wednesday night when we play at the same time Rangers take on Ross County at Ibrox.

If we drop points then the entire complexion and narrative of the title race will change again.

Matches against both St Johnstone and Hamilton this week should result in another six points. It’s only by winning consistently in these so-called smaller matches that we can taste glory in May.
