Celtic’s four goals against St Johnstone on Sunday afternoon mean that Ange Postecoglou’s side have now bagged 78 goals from just 25 league games; a ratio of 3.12 goals per outing.
With a third of the season still to go it looks a fair bet to suggest that the Parkhead side will rip up their own record books this term.
Brendan Rodgers’ side created a landmark with 106 goals in their Invincibles campaign but if Postecoglou’s side continue in the same vein then they can surely eclipse that, although it will be interesting to see if they can better the club record of 115 goals that has stood since 1936.
Certainly, what cannot be levelled at the Parkhead side this term is any sort of complacency regardless of the chasm they have created at the top of the table.
With Rangers looking more solid under Michael Beale and with a winning run of form to instil a level of confidence that was conspicuous by its absence in the opening half of the season, all eyes will turn to the imminent League Cup final later this month at Hampden.
Rangers may well fancy that they are the only team capable of stopping Celtic as they bid to claim a full domestic sweep this term.
