Turn the tide Tony!

|
The thoughts below will be entirely pointless and deleted if Celtic fail to beat St Johnstone on Sunday.

Has the tide turned today with Rangers drawing at home to Hearts?

For almost two months things have been going Rangers way with Celtic unable to string together any sort of form or winning run.
A 12 point lead was expected to be facing Celtic tomorrow at St Johnstone as the Rangers juggernaut rolled over the Jambos with Tony Mowbray set for another public trial by the body language experts and amateur psychologists.
Rangers dropped two points today at home to ten man Hearts and it’s in Celtic’s hands to start turning up the pressure and reducing the daylight at the top of the SPL table.
Twelve months ago Celtic were two goals up on Dundee United on the back of a win at Ibrox that sent them seven points clear of Rangers.
A win against Craig Levein’s side would have put Rangers ten points behind going into the Inverness Caley Thistle match.
We all know that Celtic managed to throw away two points, Rangers won at Inverness, the ten point gap became five and the rest of the season is best forgotten.
St Johnstone are a decent team but with the right attitude they should be no match for Celtic tomorrow.
A well prepared, fully motivated Celtic with a team full of players knowing that they are playing for their place or a transfer elsewhere.
Three new signings have already been made this month, Kim Sung Yeung looks useful, Jos Hooiveld looks scary and Thomas Rogne is one for the future, hopefully the not too distant future.
Danish striker Morten Rasmussen is on his way with another defender being chased before the transfer window closes next weekend.
Other than a good day out at Hampden winning the League Cup 2009 was a virtual right off for Celtic.
A commanding win at St Johnstone and some new signings making their mark in the coming weeks can help generate a momentum to turn the tide and the title back towards Paradise.
