Hugh Keevins tied himself in knots last night as he tried to explain his thinking in the race for the SPFL Premiership.

According to the veteran broadcaster the Ibrox side were favourites on Sunday morning on the basis that winning their two games in hand would take them above Celtic with the momentum building from their victory in the December Glasgow derby.

On Monday morning the situation had changed dramatically. Defeat at Tynecastle left the gap at five points, even by winning their game in hand Steven Gerrard’s side would trail Celtic but according to Keevins the two remaining Glasgow derbies will determine who would win the title.

Tomorrow night begins an interesting run of fixtures with Celtic away to St Johnstone, Hamilton and Motherwell while Gerrard’s side enjoy home matches against Ross County, Aberdeen and Hibs.

If Celtic can take nine points from those matches they’ll have strengthened their position at the top with just six more away days from their remaining fixtures.
