I awoke this morning having dreamt of a Dembele hattrick. Obviously, I’d be over the moon with three goals for the big man, but today all that matters are getting three points.
Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen ensured that by winning on Friday night in Dundee, and in some style I might add, that they did not hand the title to Celtic.
Meanwhile over at Ibrox yesterday there were scenes of jubilation as Pedro Caixinha’s side salvaged a point at home to Stephen Robinson’s Motherwell.
Wow. What a contrast.
There remains only one more fixture to wrap things up this weekend in the Scottish Premiership. All eyes will be on Tynecastle to see if Celtic can secure the title in the capital.
Hearts are 42 points adrift of the league leaders and Ian Cathro’s side have slipped into fifth place. So far, Brendan Rodgers Bhoys remain unbeaten in the league and the whole domestic scene.
Despite the odds being stacked in Celtic’s favour, there is zero room for complacency today. Tynecastle is a tight ground with the fans right on top of the action.
There have been some frantic games there over the years when Celtic have come visiting. The atmosphere adds to the occasion and it is often tinged with hatred.
For Celtic to win the league there, would not go down well with the Jambo hordes. As for the Celtic faithful, well it would be nice wouldn’t it?
Nothing less than a solid victory would make me happier. Oh and if Dembele does fancy a hattrick – I’d be good with that as well!
Here’s to winning six-in-a-row. Today or next week!
