We know it’s coming. We just don’t know when.
Today, Celtic travel to Easter Road to face Hibs in the first of five post-split fixtures. It’s also the first opportunity for Celtic to seal the title.
Neil Lennon is a diehard Celt at heart, but he won’t want to be labelled as the guy who handed his old club their 7th league title in-a-row. He may be sentimental, but he has his hown reputation to consider.
Besides, it doesn’t work like that. Hibs have their own battle.
A win for Hibs would put them on 33 points. That’s what Aberdeen and Rangers are currently on so there’s an incentive to finish higher.
Brendan Rodgers has had some of his toughest matches against Neil Lennon’s Hibs. I still admire Neil for who he is and what he has done for Celtic as a player, coach and manager.
More importantly, the abuse he endured during his time at Celtic. I’m sure it still happens to this day.
If Celtic play today like they did last week, they will be hard to stop. This will be a good match.
I don’t mind if the Champagne goes on ice for another week. I’d still be over the moon to take it now though.
I guess there isn’t long to wait until we know. All the best Bhoys.
