Television presenter Rylan Clark, star of the cinch adverts, has become something of a symbol for Scottish football this season and he’s loving the latest attention from Celtic fans.

Rylan is the face of league sponsors cinch and in recent weeks, as clubs wrap up title wins across all four divisions in Scottish football, he’s been popular with celebrating supporters. There was even a cardboard cutout of him in the stands at the recent Killie win over Arbroath!

In fact, he’s congratulated Kelty Hearts, Cove Rangers and Kilmarnock with his trademark line, “cinched it!”

The countdown is now on to him doing the same for Celtic, as the Bhoys close in on a league title themselves. And one supporter drew a class portrait of him in a classic Hoops top, which he is apparently loving.

Celtic can’t officially win the league until a week on Wednesday at Tannadice, if Rangers manage to beat Dundee United next weekend.

However, a win for the Bhoys against Hearts on Saturday effectively wraps it up because of the goal difference advantage we hold over the Ibrox side.

Today’s draw was a disaster for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s title ambitions, which he admitted in his post-match interviews.

It’s incredibly unlikely Celtic will blow it now. In fact, statistical models are showing that the Bhoys have a greater than 99% chance of sealing the deal, based on 20,000 simulations of the remaining fixtures.

So while the players have to remain focused and put in a bit more hard work over the next ten days, we can truly start to believe that the trophy is on its way to Paradise in Ange Postecoglou’s debut season.
