One reporter inside Celtic Park today took the result a bit harder than anyone else.
Trackside, Kenny Macintyre of BBC Scotland of enjoys privileged access to the Celtic boss with pre and post match access for interviews.
With two matches left to play, three for their closest rivals, Celtic are nine points ahead with a goal difference advantage of 22 over Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side.
There had never been much doubt about Macintyre’s footballing interest but earlier this year he confirmed that his heart is at Ibrox.
??’Only you could make winning a Championship feel like a downer!’?

The second clip was from Celtic’s 2-0 win over St Mirren at the start of March which was apparently a hard watch.
Celtic’s last 30 matches have been a hard watch for some with 25 wins and five draws meaning that their points total can’t be beaten.
If Dundee United take anything from Ibrox tomorrow the title is Celtic’s if it is a home win a point at Tannadice will be another hard watch for the intrepid reporter from BBC Scotland.
Rangers are my team, never hidden that. Be strange to have someone working on Sportsound that didn’t support a team.
As for Kris Boyd. I know at times he is a wind up merchant, but he talks up our game. Would he be in the Sky studio tonight if he wasn’t such a big personality?
