WELL, that's the league over then. Done and dusted before the Christmas decorations go up.
But all I'd say to those who think the league is over is this Celtic were 10 points behind Rangers with seven games to go last season. Remember what happened?
Celtic have had to do without Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink and Georgios Samaras but haven't stopped scoring. Scott McDonald is still there, of course, but they also have Shunsuke Nakamura, Aiden McGeady and Shaun Maloney and now Scott Brown has added goals to his game.
Then there's Gary Caldwell, who Nike Shox Navina White Silver hasn't put a foot wrong. These were the two most criticised Celtic players a year ago but now they're heroes who some fans think have helped wrap up the title with six months to go.
Confidence is an amazing feeling and you can sense it surging through Celtic and their supporters. That's why they have started to think about four in a row and it's only November.
For example, young Cillian Sheridan came in as nothing more than a stop gap to cover or so we thought. That's four goals he's got now including two against Kilmarnock in midweek. That's the sign of things going pretty well at a football club.
That happened last week in the 3 3 draw with Dundee United but it doesn't happen enough.
They made chances, lots of them, and Motherwell keeper Graeme Smith had an outstanding match. But when Kris Boyd and Kenny Miller aren't scoring, Rangers need someone else to step up to the plate.

So a small gap has opened up between the big two. Or, to put it another way, Celtic will win the league by a trillion points while their rivals across the river are more or less relegated.
It only takes one weekend to change everything. If Rangers beat St Mirren tomorrow and Celtic lose to Hamilton on Sunday there would only be a point in it.
Some Rangers fans think the title race is over too. What I would say to them is that Walter Smith has been over this course many, many times.
After all, a four point gap between them and Rangers with 25 games to go must be completely and utterly insurmountable. Why don't the SPL Black Nike Shox Cheap

And we have been here before with the league. That's why I know there is plenty of excitement still to come.
All nonsense, of course, but I love it it never fails to make me smile.
Never mind Barack Obama being the President elect in America, Celtic are surely the Champions elect with an even stronger mandate.
Their team are either brilliant or a disgrace. It's never somewhere in between.
Brown has been excellent in a variety of positions.
What I would say is Celtic fans and the players for that matter have every right to be confident.
There were a couple of seasons when you could say Celtic had won the league by this stage and few would have laughed at you. Sorry, but you wouldn't get away with that now. I felt Rangers did a lot of good things against Motherwell even if they didn't score and that was only because a linesman's flag wrongly denied them.
At least that's what you'd be asking if you'd been listening to fans from both sides of Glasgow's great divide in the last couple of days.

In the blue corner things aren't quite so rosy. However, in saying that, Rangers are also playing some nice football. Their problem is they have been paying for missing too many chances, as they did against Motherwell at Fir Park on Wednesday.
I like the way some fans see it as always black or white.
Gordon Strachan's team have racked up nine SPL wins on the bounce since they lost to Rangers and most of those have been achieved with six or seven first team players missing. Not bad at all.
just end the season now and save us all a lot of bother?
I'm well aware every point is a prisoner and last season was a prime example.
Celtic are playing well right now and winning games. No wonder their fans feel good about their team. I can't say I blame them.
but now he looks as if he's enjoying his football again and it's good to see.
term as I wondered if he would live up to his price tag. Strange that nobody, me included, has mentioned the size of his transfer fee this season.
He won't be panicking, that's for sure, but he will be looking for a bit more cutting edge from his team.
