Celtic managed to go into the international break on the back of a win. The Hoops got the result they were looking for at Parkhead, winning 3-1 against St Johnstone. Kyogo Furuhashi, who was brought back into the starting XI after being left on the bench recently, showed he still knows his way to the back of the net by scoring the opener. Nicolas Kuhn, who was fantastic once again, got the second. James Forrest also got on the scoresheet after coming on.

The result means that Celtic are now back atop the Premiership table. It remains to be seen whether it stays that way over the international break.

All eyes will be on Dundee FC tomorrow as they welcome the Rangers to Dens Park. It is the Ibrox club's game in hand. They currently are a point behind Celtic.

A draw in Dundee would mean that both Glasgow teams would not only be on the same number of points after 30 games but the same goal difference as well. Celtic do have a better head-to-head record and have somehow scored more goals than the Rangers despite their struggles going forward this season.

Rodgers makes blunt Rangers claim after Celtic win

One man who won't be watching the game tomorrow is Rodgers. As reported by Glasgow Times, when asked whether he would keep tabs on the match in Dundee, the Celtic manager told Sky Sports:

"Well, it's St Patrick's Day tomorrow so I'll be celebrating St Patrick's Day.

"There'll be a celebration of the Irish community worldwide.

"I won't have any interest in any results.

"We've done our job today and that's all we can do and we'll have a good day tomorrow."

To be honest, there is not much point in keeping an eye on the Rangers games. It will be what it will be. The important thing is that it is still in Celtic's hands.

They might be behind in the title race but there are still two Glasgow Derbies left to be played this season, which could prove to be vital. On the other hand, Celtic also must make sure that they do not drop any more points moving forward, whether the opposition sits atop the league table or at the bottom.
