Whereas nothing needs to be taken away from Celtic, the truth that the Scottish Premiership is essentially a two-horse race means their achievement can’t be in contrast with profitable the Premier League with out defeat.
The standard of the English top-flight speaks for itself, and there’s no denying that the present Hoops aspect gained’t be a top-four crew in England.
