“It’s not a foregone conclusion” – John Hartson sends Rangers title warning

The Celtic fans are supremely confident that the title race is over.

A nine point gap and a superior goal difference means that with just nine games left to play, it would take a monumental collapse of epic proportions for Ange Postecoglou’s men not to lift the title.

Even with two games still to play against ‘them’, it is still very difficult to see where we could drop points.

But John Hartson warns against complacency in the title race.

Speaking on The Go Radio Football Show, Hartson warned, “It’s game by game. You cannot take your eye off the ball. Taking your eye off the ball is not winning on Saturday. It is drawing 1-1. That’s taking your eye off the ball.

This team is driven on the training ground every day. They know what’s at stake and they’ve got a certain way of playing and they’ve got a certain way of getting results. They keep going. They don’t stop. They never stop.

There’s 27 points to play for. It’s not over until it’s mathematically over.

They have Rangers to play twice in the league. Rangers will be determined to put that performance right from the final a couple of weeks ago, the League Cup final where Rangers felt they didn’t perform as well as they should have.

So it’s not over. Of course they [Celtic] are huge favourites, of course they are, and they should go and get the job done.

But it’s not a foregone conclusion.

One thing is for certain, Ange Postecoglou will not get complacent. He will have it drilled into the players that there is still plenty to play for. So will Callum McGregor.

But as fans, we can be a bit more cocky about it if we wish because we are top of the league looking, down on the Rangers.
