Celtic won't rely on Dons result to lift title

Celtic have not relied on anyone else so far this season and assistant boss Chris Davies insists they are not about to start now.

Brendan Rodgers' rampant Hoops can wrap up the Ladbrokes Premiership title against Dundee on Sunday with nine games to spare if second-place Aberdeen lose at home to Motherwell today.

But Davies is not keeping his fingers crossed for a Dons slip up at Pittodrie.

The Parkhead number two said: "It's something I'm obviously aware could happen but it's not something we've spoken about or focused on.

"For that to happen it would involve us relying on someone else.

"But what we've done this season is rely purely on ourselves.

"That is what we will always do so we are focusing on Dundee. They have had a good February and Paul Hartley was named manager of the month and rightly so.

"We know it's going to be a really difficult game so we're just focusing on the game plan and how we can perform. We can control that. We can't control (what happens) at Aberdeen.

"If it happens then great but it's not something we're worried about."

Meanwhile, Kenny Miller accepts he has to prove himself all over again as he aims to impress new Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha.

"The manager has been appointed a week ago so it's important we get down to work and earn it," said Miller, who is Rangers' top Ladbrokes Premiership goalscorer with six strikes.
