Frank McAvennie expects the title race to be decided on the final two games between Celtic and Rangers this season.
The former Hoops player does not believe that either team will drop many points between now and May and he thinks the derby clashes could prove pivotal in who ends up finishing on top:
“The title race obviously isn’t over and whichever team wins it from this point will absolutely deserve it. Celtic and Rangers don’t look like losing any time soon. I still think the title will be decided in the Old Firm games. Sometimes teams Celtic or Rangers will drop points against the poorer sides in the league but I just can’t see that happening.
“Both teams are playing at such an incredibly high standard now. I’m convinced it will be the Old Firm games. I think both managers know that as well and Rangers well, they want revenge after we hammered them a few weeks ago.”
Celtic have a slender one-point advantage over their Glasgow rivals heading into today’s Premiership fixtures. Rangers face Dundee United at midday and could briefly take first place with a win at Tannadice, but the Hoops then play Dundee a few hours later.
After a disappointing loss to Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League midweek, manager Ange Postecoglou will be hoping to get a good response out of his players this afternoon.
Celtic then have four more league matches before the next clash against Rangers at Ibrox on April 3rd. The final derby will take place after the split.
