Increasing suspicion about Celtic performances after yet another uninspiring result
Celtic’s goalless draw against Motherwell on Sunday was the latest in a series of uninspiring performances in the Scottish Premiership this season.
They failed to defeat a team who played with 10 men for 50 minutes, but despite this they managed to increase their lead to 10 points with a game in hand at the top of the table.
There is an increasing suspicion that the Bhoys are doing enough and no more on the road to clinching the league title, as despite some poor performances in the league none of their challengers have come close to them this season.
The fact that the Hoops haven’t managed to win four league games in a row this season yet still hold a double digit lead at the top of the table is an indictment of both Brendan Rodgers’ side and the rest of the league.
The quality just isn’t there this season, and although matching last year’s unprecedented feat on an unbeaten league season was never going to happen, it is still a bit of a shock that the Hoops have dropped so many points this season.

The Hoops have drawn eight games this season, which is more than both Rangers and Aberdeen, and have scored two less league goals then their Old Firm rivals, although they do have a game in hand.
The football has been extremely uninspiring at times, and Rodgers will have to hope it doesn’t affect the Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers next month, which is the biggest game the Hoops have left this season.
A laboured performance in that match may well see their dreams of a second consecutive domestic treble come to an end.
