BBC journalist raves about Celtic goalkeeper Joe Hart

Celtic could lose their spot at the top of the Scottish Premiership table after they dropped points at home yet again. 

The Bhoys already squandered their eight-point lead over Rangers, and one could feel that the momentum had shifted.

Brendan Rodgers spoke recently that the Hoops need to be consistent. He won’t be pleased after Celtic only managed a 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock at Celtic Park.

Celtic have dropped points away from Parkhead, but the home fans will be frustrated to find that they have dropped crucial points at home.

One player who has been consistent for Celtic has been Joe Hart. Rodgers spoke highly of Hart recently, and BBC Sport journalist Kheredine Idessane hailed him for making two “terrific” stops against Kilmarnock.

“Not for the first time, home points dropped at Celtic Park,” wrote Idessane for BBC Sport.

“Not for the first time, a chorus of boos from the home fans despite the fact their team is still top of the league. But for two terrific stops from Joe Hart, both from Liam Donnelly, the visitors might have been leaving with all the points and not just the one.”

Celtic are struggling badly

Celtic are struggling badly at the moment, and it is Rodgers’ job to get the best out of his players.

Hart has been a “real catalyst” for Celtic’s success, but the Bhoys have looked a shadow of the team it was under Ange Postecoglou.

They still occupy the top of the table but for how long? Rangers will leapfrog them if they win their game on Sunday.

Rodgers can point out that injuries to key players have hurt the club badly, but he can’t escape from the blame as well. Celtic have been shaky at the back and they are not creating enough chances.

Having led the table for so long, Celtic are under real pressure for the first time this season.
