This season was always going to be a little different in the SPL. With Rangers going out of business and leaving the league, it was seen as a given that Celtic would dominate from start to finish, leaving no chance for any other team to mount a serious challenge.
As it's turned out, Celtic have dropped enough points over the first 22 games to let another team into the race. The only problem has been that no team has been able to step up and put the sort of run of results together which might see them run Celtic close.
As it stands, with just over half of the season played, Celtic sit nine points clear of closest competitors Inverness Caledonian Thistle. ICT sit in second place ahead of Motherwell, Hibernian and Aberdeen, who have all played a game more.
Could any of these sides get it going between now and May and really push Celtic for the title?
