Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has issued a title warning to the club’s rivals ahead of the second half of the season.

Speaking about the title race, as reported by the Scotsman, Gordon believes that Celtic’s experience will help them see off competition from those below them in the table.

After a slow start to the season, Celtic were playing catch up during the first few months of the campaign, but now lead the way at the top of the pile in the Scottish Premiership.

The Hoops are level on points with second-place Rangers but have a valuable game in hand on Steven Gerrard’s men.

The latter’s win against Celtic in the derby ramped up the pressure on Celtic, but Gordon remains confident that they have enough to see them over the line once again this season.

We are top of the league, we won the League Cup, we’re still in Europe. If you were looking at three things at the start off the season to have happened by now then it’s those three.

We have done the job we set out to do but we can always improve and that’s what we were doing in Dubai. We are trying to improve on what we’ve done. We have laid good foundations by starting well enough.

Sure, we would like to be further ahead, but, in terms of what we’ve achieved so far, it’s job done. Now we need to focus on having a good end to the season, pressing home the good we’ve done and it could be another special year.

Kilmarnock and Aberdeen are also watching matters closely, with Steve Clarke’s men just a single point behind Rangers in the table.
