Celtic are back in action this weekend as the international break becomes a distant memory and what a game it is to get back involved in.
The Bhoys take on Rangers at Paradise and can rubber stamp the title effectively with a win so there surely isn’t any need for further motivation from Neil Lennon.
One thing that is a blow, though, is the fact that Kieran Tierney is looking out of the game now:
Neil Lennon says his future at Celtic doesn’t depend on Sunday’s result against Rangers.
The Celtic boss says going 13 points ahead would be a ‘hammerblow’ – but that it wouldn’t decide the title.

It had been hoped that KT was going to be okay but things have not gone to plan.
And, though, we should still win the game, it is a setback that will have an effect on our performance without doubt.
At the end of the day you need your best players in the biggest of games and KT is arguably the very best footballer we have got.
Not having him, then, is a blow and Lennon will need to think of a decent back-up plan.
