Some Celtic fans were left raving about a tweet that John Hartson sent out about the club recently.
The Parkhead-based side are now 12 points clear at the top following their 3-1 win over Kilmarnock at the weekend as they came from behind to keep up their faultless league record since the turn of the year.
But despite the 12-point lead, Hartson tweeted out that the Hoops’ Premiership title win could be wrapped up sooner than everyone thinks.
Can Celtic win the Premiership before the Split?
No question about it
I doubt if that can happen
This tweet left many Celtic fans raving.
Hahaha I love his attitude HH
By 4:45 today John

The Hoops still have to play Rangers once more in the Premiership before the late-season split, with that game taking place next month. Before that, the Hoops are yet to play St. Mirren and Livingston and also have their Scottish Cup clash against St. Johnstone.
Celtic also have a Europa League campaign to navigate through, though their handsome lead at the top of the table suggests they may be able to switch their focus and battle on two fronts for the remainder of the season.
What do we think?
It is anyone’s guess when Celtic can win the Premiership title, but winning it against Rangers in March would be special. That could only happen if the Gers drop more points from now on and lose their game in hand and then lose against the Hoops.
That is certainly a possibility, considering the Gers have lost two and have drawn two since 2020 began.
