The SPFL has done something I didn’t expect.

They might just have made the Glasgow derby at Celtic Park a league decider.

The odds on it are low; they would have to drop something in their first post-split game, away at Motherwell, on 24 April and we’d have to win our match, the same day, against Ross County. I expect we will … I don’t expect they will.

But if they do then it’s high-noon on 1 May, as they come to Celtic Park. If they roll into that game seven or nine points behind, we’re playing for the title that day.

That aside, we would almost certainly win it the following week against Hearts, also at home.

So 1 May or 7 May … those are the two dates to ring in the calendar because the chances are that the league will be secured on one or the other. What surprises me here is that the SPFL appears willing to risk allowing us a title decider against Ibrox.

I thought they would play it safe and pencil us in for the first game.

Perhaps, though, the police didn’t allow that.

Maybe they ruled it out on the grounds that there might be trouble if two of these games were played inside of a week. God alone knows what they think will happen if we play two in a fortnight to end the Ibrox club’s season for them.

Regardless, this sets up the scenario all of us would have wanted; a relatively straightforward away game followed by two matches on our home turf, the games which will ultimately decide the race.

That is a decent outcome, and one I honestly didn’t expect.

But how sweet – oh my home sweet would it be? – to win it at home against them? I thought that was the one chance we wouldn’t get … and the governing bodies may just have presented it to us on a silver platter. Wow.
