Celtic forced into action by rivals once again, but weather could play crucial role - view

Rangers’ 4-1 victory over St Johnstone on Tuesday night has cut the gap at the top of the league table once more, and once again Celtic will have to respond.
They already did this on Sunday, with a battling 2-0 victory over Aberdeen after the Gers had cut the gap, and now they will have to do it again against Dundee on Wednesday night – weather permitting.
If the weather gets as bad as it expected to be in Glasgow, snow according to BBC weather, then there is a chance that the game could be postponed, which would mean that if Rangers defeated the Hoops at Ibrox on the 11th of March, the gap at the top of the table would be down to three points – albeit with the Bhoys having a game in hand.
The psychological impact of the gap at the top of the table being down to three points would be interesting, to see how the current Hoops side, who were expected to rampage their way to the league title, handled the pressure.
The bottom line is that Celtic have dropped too many silly points this season why is why there is still a semblance of a title race. If the Hoops roll their sleeves up like they did at Pittodrie they should be taking a nine point lead to Ibrox in 12 days time – weather permitting, of course.
