It has been a very odd domestic season for Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic this season. The goalless draw against Dundee on Wednesday meant that the club had dropped points in one-third of their games this season – yet they are still on course for a second successive domestic treble.
The standard of play from the Hoops hasn’t been as good as it was last season, but season 2016-17 was a one-off, no team is ever likely to complete an unbeaten domestic season in the top league in Scotland, never mind setting a British record of 69 matches unbeaten.
One major problem which seems to be glaring though is the number of goals scored the Hoops this season. At the moment they have scored 62 goals in the league – just one less than Rangers.
The Hoops’ top scorer, Scott Sinclair has been in poor form for months yet is still top of the goalscoring chart for the Bhoys with 18 goals.
If one thing is going to derail the Hoops’ treble bid, it won’t be the much-criticised defence, but the lack of goals scored.
When you think about most other teams in the United Kingdom would love to have the issues the Hoops have, some teams haven’t ever won a domestic trophy and the Bhoys are on the verge of six in two season.
The expectations are always huge at Celtic Park though, and the football hasn’t been anywhere near as good as last season’s, but the Bhoys are still in a good place overall.
