By Will Butcher
Chris Sutton believes Celtic are doing enough to keep their unbeaten Scottish Premiership hopes alive despite being in the middle of a “blip”.
Brendan Rodgers’ side secured a narrow 2-1 victory over Dundee on Sunday, as goals from Jozo Simunovic and Stuart Armstrong saw off a brave Dundee side.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, former Hoops striker Sutton claimed Celtic were in the middle of a sticky patch of form but their hunt for a 48th league title was “almost over”.

Celtic took the lead in first-half injury time at Dens Park, as recalled defender Jozo Simunovic scored a sensational scissor kick to put the Bhoys 1-0 up at the break.
The Hoops looked to be in complete control early in the second half, as in-form playmaker Stuart Armstrong scored his third goal in four games and 12th of the season to double the lead.

James Forrest found space before crossing to find Armstrong who headed home, capping off a good few days for the midfielder after being called up to Gordon Strachan’s Scotland squad for the first time earlier this week.
The win maintains Celtic’s 25-point lead over second-placed Aberdeen, as they continue to remain unbeaten in the league with 27 wins and two draws from 29 outings.
Former Liverpool boss Rodgers will be hoping his side can maintain that form against Hearts in two weeks’ time, with priority given to the international break over the next fortnight.
