Celtic are slightly ahead of Ibrox side Glasgow Rangers in the Scottish Premiership standings.

Neil Lennon, Manager of Celtic looks on prior to the UEFA Europa League group E match between Celtic FC and Lazio Roma at Celtic Park on October 24, 2019 in Glasgow, United Kingdom.

Kenny Miller believes that Celtic are favourites to pip Rangers to a ninth successive Premiership title this season.

It looks set to be the closest title race for many years in Scotland and Celtic, right now, have a very slight edge.

Neil Lennon's side sit at the summit on goal difference ahead of Steven Gerrard's Rangers, who were top a couple of weeks ago.

The Hoops scored four first-half goals at Aberdeen this past weekend, and Miller feels that when Celtic are in top gear, few can challenge them.

 

"I would say they are favourites. I would definitely say they are favourites and rightly so," Miller, who had a few stints at Rangers and one at Parkhead, told BBC Sportsound.

"When Celtic click into gear they can do that to anybody. We have seen it domestically for a number of years now and even in European games - they can hurt very very good European teams when they click into gear."

Having won every title since 2012, Celtic definitely have the pedigree - not to mention the players - to move within one crown of 10-in-a-row come May.

But Gerrard has Rangers looking as sharp as they have done for many, many years and even Bhoys fans will know they're in a fight this time around.

Lennon's troops are home to St Mirren tomorrow, while the Gers visit Ross County.
