Celtic winger James Forrest is confident that the Hoops can bounce back from their 2-1 loss to Hibernian, and clinch the title in style against Rangers.
The Bhoys could have clinched the title against Hibernian at Easter Road, but Neil Lennon’s side were by far the better side and worthy of their win on the day.
Forrest believes that the possibility of clinching the title at home against their most bitter rivals will be all the motivation the Bhoys need to recover from their most recent defeat.
“We have four games left and want to wrap the title up as soon as we can – but it wasn’t to be against Hibs” he said, as quoted by BT Sport.
“After the season we’ve had, we need to be positive.
“This defeat is gone now and it would be tremendous to now go and do it in front of our own fans and give them something to cheer about.”
The Hoops are still 10 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, and only need one more win from their remaining four league games to win their seventh title in a row.
Football Insider verdict
The atmosphere will be at fever pitch in the East End of Glasgow as the Hoops aim to clinch the title against their biggest rivals for the first time since 1979. Brendan Rodgers will no doubt have his players fired up for the game, but they will have to make sure that they don’t let the occasion get to them. Forrest, if he is selected, will be out put right a few wrongs against the Gers, as he has yet to have a good game against them, and if he is on form he is more than capable of putting on a performance that is worthy of a team winning the league, but only time will tell on that. The Hoops are more than capable of winning the title though, as they are a far better side.
