Celtic’s passage to the knockout rounds of the Europa League this week has given them an edge in the Premiership title race.

He feels that the Hoops are now better placed to win the title after ensuring qualification from their Europa League group with Thursday’s win over Lazio, whereas rivals Rangers still have work to do to seal their place in the last 32 of the continental competition.



“Knowing you need to go to the next team below you, if you can get a point, fantastic, but you’ve got to say in Premiership terms and in title predicament, it’s fallen better for Celtic – they’ve done their job already, they’re there already, they can now concentrate on the Premiership games whereas Rangers have one eye on European qualification and on the Premiership.” While Whelan’s logic is understandable, he may be overstating the scale of Celtic’s advantage considering how tightly the race for top spot in the Premiership is being contested, as well as how well placed Rangers are in their Europa League group.



Celtic fans, do you agree with Whelan’s opinion about the title race?

[via UEFA.com] There is a firm possibility that they could ensure their passage to the knockout stages after that game, which would then cancel out any advantage Celtic may have in this regard.

Gerrard’s side beat Porto 2-0 on Thursday to leave themselves second in their group with a three-point advantage on Feyenoord and Porto beneath them, as per UEFA.com.

As for the battle for domestic supremacy, the Hoops have the slenderest advantage coming into this weekend, with the teams level on points and goals conceded but Neil Lennon’s men on top courtesy of scoring one more goal than their Glasgow rivals.
