'Tainted title' tag criticised
Saturday 07 April 2012
Celtic's first-team coach, Alan Thompson, will hear no talk of a tainted title win this season.
The Hoops need a point against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park today to wrap up the Premier League championship for the first time in four years. Celtic were 15 points behind Rangers in November, but they had overtaken their Old Firm rivals by the time Rangers were deducted 10 points in February, for entering administration.
Thompson said: "All this talk of tainted titles from pundits writing this and that is an absolute nonsense. To turn around 15 points – regardless of Rangers' 10-point deduction – means massive credit has to go to our players."
