‘Enormous’ – Chris Sutton Paves Out Celtic’s Path to Title Glory



With the Scottish Premiership season hurtling towards an exhilarating finish, Celtic stands on the brink of a pivotal moment that could define their campaign. The Glasgow giants, holding a slender three-point lead with just five matches remaining, are navigating a path fraught with high stakes and intense pressure. According to former Celtic star Chris Sutton, the team’s forthcoming fixtures against Dundee and Hearts could very well dictate their fate this season.

“The next two games against Dundee and Hearts are the be all and end all,” Sutton expressed in a recent commentary. “If Celtic win the pair of them, they could all but clinch the league against Rangers at Celtic Park.”

However, this term has not been smooth sailing for Celtic. The team has displayed a worrying level of inconsistency that has given unexpected encouragement to many of their opponents. This Sunday’s matchup against Dundee is more than just another game; it’s a test of Celtic’s mettle and their ability to manage the psychological battle as much as the physical one. The Bhoys must swiftly address and neutralise both their internal nerves and their opponents’ threat to maintain control of their destiny.

Sutton highlighted the importance of Celtic seizing the moment and not leaving their fate to chance or the performance of others, especially with Rangers poised to capitalise on any stumbles. “Sunday is enormous” he wrote in his Record Sport column. “You have Rangers with the pressure of facing a St Mirren side who have been impressive this season and knowing they cannot afford any more slip-ups.”

As the pressure mounts, Celtic’s challenge is twofold: overcome their own inconsistencies and shut down Dundee efficiently in the upcoming Sunday afternoon clash. Success in these next games would not only bolster their title hopes but could also set a dramatic stage for a potentially league-deciding clash against Rangers at Celtic Park.

The stakes could hardly be higher as Celtic navigates the choppy waters of the season’s end.
