Derek McInnes picks out biggest advantage Celtic have over rivals

Aberdeen's manager Derek McInnes feels Celtic have an edge over their rivals in terms of the quality of their players.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has told the Glasgow Evening Times about the edge he feels Celtic have over their rivals at the moment.

The Bhoys were dominant in a 4-0 win against their closest challengers in the Scottish Premier League over the weekend and McInnes puts the difference between the clubs down to a quality in Celtic’s playing squad.

“Celtic showed exactly why they're top of the league, because they've got players who can exploit those moments of lack of concentration,” he said.

Celtic boss Ronny Deila will be delighted with the way his side bounced back after the heartbreak of a controversial win against Inter Milan in the Europa League last week.

The result puts Celtic six points clear at the top of the SPL table with a game in hand, which represents a chance to increase that lead even further.

Celtic’s exposure on the European scene and their consistent success domestically has created increased levels of revenue streams for the club, which in turn has created a chance for the club to sign a better quality of player.

That explains why they have an edge in terms of higher quality players who can take advantage of the lapses of concentration, which come from within the opposition.

If they continue to take advantage of those moments over the rest of the season, they will be champions and have a great chance of winning multiple pieces of silverware.
