Celtic are flying high at the moment and look like the team to beat in Scotland right now. They followed their dominant 3-0 win over the Rangers up with a 4-0 win over Motherwell. As a result, they find themselves sitting at the top of the Scottish Premiership once again, something that not many would have expected when they lost three of their first six league games this season.
But here we are, with Celtic one point ahead of the Rangers in the Premiership title race, with 13 league matches yet to be played.
Celtic will know though that their lead at the top is very narrow and even a mediocre day could end up leading to them slipping back down to second spot behind the Rangers. Thus, the Hoops need to continue stringing together the wins while hoping that their Glasgow rivals do not do the same.
This week could potentially be very important in that regard, with Celtic facing Aberdeen away at the Pittodrie Stadium while the Rangers welcome Hibernian to Ibrox. It must be pointed out that neither Edinburgh side has been at their best this season but these are big games nonetheless.
Celtic Predicted XI vs Aberdeen: Maeda, Jota and more
Here’s how we think Ange Postecoglou could line Celtic up when they take on Aberdeen in a tough away game at the Pittodrie Stadium:
What a signing Hart is proving to be for Celtic. The Hoops did not appear to have a set first-choice goalkeeper last season, with Vasilis Barkas, Scott Bain and Conor Hazard all struggling to nail down their spot in the team.
Hart has come in and pretty much made the spot his own. And it is not just his performances that have been impressive but his leadership skills as well, as he has become a fan favourite at Celtic.
