Former BBC pundit Tam McManus believes that Celtic have handed the Scottish Premiership title to Rangers after dropping another two points against St Johnstone.

Rangers now lead their Old Firm rivals by 13 points at the top of the table and have won their last eight league fixtures.

Meanwhile, Celtic have picked up just one league win from their last five matches and have just one point from five matches in the Europa League.

Writing on Twitter after Celtic’s 1-1 draw with St Johnstone, McManus said that a change of management would be made at Celtic, but should have come earlier.

“I said this exactly 1 MONTH ago,” he said.

“Since then Celtic have gone out of two competitions and handed the league to Rangers by dropping a further 4 points. The change will be made now but it should have been made a month ago IMO. Horse has long bolted.”

Things are unravelling rapidly at Celtic, but Rangers and Steven Gerrard must keep focusing on the job at hand. While they enjoy a 13-point lead, Celtic do have two games in hand and a couple of defeats for the Gers would see the landscape at the top change rapidly.

Having said that, Gerrard’s side were relentless on Sunday against Ross County and show no sign of becoming complacent.

While it took a little while to fully break Stuart Kettlewell’s side down, they were leading 1-0 at half-time, they overpowered their opponents in the second half and could have scored more than the four goals they managed.

Rangers have still conceded just three goals in the league and with their attack really hitting its stride in recent weeks, with 16 goals in their last three league fixtures, it is hard to look beyond them as the Champions elect.
