Celtic have finally started to put a string of results together but it’s “too little, too late” to catch Rangers, according to Chris Sutton.
That was his verdict on the title race after the latest round of Premiership fixtures, with Celtic winning 4-0.
Rangers are now 18 points ahead having played just one game more.
Celtic played well tonight but it’s hard to get excited even with a 4-0 win. Too little too late.

Top prediction site FiveThirtyEight has also updated its final Scottish Premiership table after the Celtic win.
And they don’t think that Celtic are going to get any closer than they are now.
It’s predicting that Rangers will win the title by a huge margin of 18 points, meaning they think Celtic will not take advantage of their game in hand.
It gives them a less than 1% chance of catching Gers.
Rangers have a big fortnight in front of them that will go a long way to defining this season.
Two Premiership games against Killie and Dundee United are sandwiched between the two huge Antwerp games in the Europa League.
The Premiership is already won, it’s just a case of when Rangers will lift the trophy.
Sealing it at Celtic Park would be the dream.
Progression in Europe is the next big dream and if Gers can get past Antwerp and secure the title, we can focus all our efforts on that.
We’ve got a great chance of getting past Antwerp – the bookies have us at odds of 2/7 with Antwerp a massive 5/2 to progress.
