Craig Gordon sends ominous warning to Celtic rivals
By Matt Farr
Craig Gordon has issued an ominous warning statement to Celtic’s rivals by insisting his team have no intention of letting up in their title pursuit.
The 33-year-old goalkeeper insists that Celtic will be looking to make the most of their three games in hand during the Christmas period, and maintain their advantage in the Scottish Premiership title race.
Celtic are already eight points clear of second-place Rangers, and still have three more games to play than their great rivals.
The Scotland international does not believe that Celtic will be taking their foot off the gas at any stage, insisting that the club will not be doing anyone any favours this month.
“This is a big month for us and there are a lot of games,” he told the Daily Express.

“But it’s an opportunity to put a lot of points on the board.
“We won’t be easing off because we want to really force home our advantage in the league.”
The league leaders have six games left to play this month, including four home games, and an Old Firm derby clash with Rangers on December 31.
Celtic remain unbeaten in the league this season since Brendan Rodgers took over as manager, with the club winning 13 of their 14 games.
They could not, however, translate that form to the European stage, where they were knocked out of the Champions League group-stage. But their European exit means they can now focus fully on their domestic campaign.
Rodgers and Celtic are firmly within the driving seat, and bar some miraculous change of fortune, look well on course to lift their sixth consecutive Scottish Premier League title.
